It suddenly seemed a bit weird to run around the grid looking for clothes when there's an unexplored stash in that ginormous handbag we always carry with us. There's also an innocent romanticism in poking around in the memories of your noob days. It's like rediscovering your roots.
So with a true sense of adventure, I dived into the folder with 'Initial Outfits' with my standard challenge: put together three completely different outfits by mixing and matching what's available.
Even if Linden's idea of a party is coffee after church, the solid craftsmanship of the outfits was enough to pull me in completely. The look of the HUMAN avatars might not have improved much but their outfits most certainly have.
The first outfit was a complete failure from the mix and match point of view. I fell so totally in love with the Male Bollywood I had to use it in its entirety. The heavily embroidered waistcoat over the silk tunic and the cool slim impeccable pants that falls gracefully over the soft hand stitched dress shoes. Can you hear me salivate? The bangles and the earring from the fem equivalent provided the cherries on top.
If the first outfit suggest riches, the second does quite the opposite. The prim coat from the Male Cosplayer need some serious surgery beside removing the humungous sword to fit me perfectly, but what can be more scruffy than an ill-fitting coat? Male Action provided the green tank, dog tags and the hinted dagger on my thigh while the jeans that's tucked into the Male Cosplayer boots are generously provided by the Male Future Punk.
Female City provided the jeans for the last outfit while the tank and shirt comes via the Male Designer. The scarf from Female Designer is actually blue and the black Female Average shoes brown but everything is full perm so no need to compromise.
It's quite obvious that the stuff isn't hot enough to leave burn marks but, as I mentioned in the beginning, it does deserve respect. You can see reason below.
