An exploration of fashion design in a virtual world
Please read this post for information on lighting issues that affect tinting your feet.
Hi , I love your shoes , but end up never being able to use them. I don’t know why but I can’t manage to get the right numbers. My last try ended up a disaster. I tried 25 different numbers and didn’t work. I know what yo are thinking …. I’m not very smart:) I’m not the most talented person in a computer but i do ok, but skins colors are biting me up 10 – 0. Why the skin makers or the shoe creators don’t provide the RGB with the shoes or the skin? I even try to impute numbers that were provided by other shoe manufacturers and skins, I ended up with blue feet:(
Hi Natasha, you didn’t leave me a full name so I have no way to contact you inside SL. If you drop me a notecard in SL I will help you get the right tint.
Why won’t my feet show when I wear heels? I get them looking perfect and then they disappear with heels on.
Hi Katie, they won’t show with heels because they are designed to be barefeet, not to be worn with shoes. They disappear because both feet and shoes share the same attachment point so when you wear shoes, they replace the feet.
Many thanks for providing this clear and easy to follow explanation, Siddean. The point regarding The Jolie Pied feet have a skin texture that will make the foot appear darker than it would normally with this command. is important. The brightness always requires some lightening afterwards. However, the hue is spot on using the technique described above.
It would be helpful to be able to get the colour the feet are currently set to. Is this possible? This would make version changes a breeze.
Hi Dorothy and thanks for your comment! You can get the RGB value that the feet are tinted at by pressing the RGB button on the HUD. It chats the current values to you in local chat. If your HUD doesn’t have an RGB button, check that you have the latest version, and you can pick up a new HUD from the demo box :)
I was unable to find my tone, I spent time with the creator and she helped me alot. I really appreciate the time she took to help me. I would recommend the products to everyone I know. Great work and not to forget to mention an awesome creator. Ty so much :D
You’re very welcome, I’m glad I could help :)
i’ve got a good colormatch on my skin – however the texture of the feet seems far more like real skin than my avi’s skin which is much smoother and glossier.. is there anything that can be done to help with that? all 4 of the “skin textures” seem
Please IM me inworld to discuss this query :)
i’m not able to access to RGB value command on advanced menu….despite of my efforts to find it on sl tutorials you are the only one talking about.I could match my skin with your feet in the previous version of sl..not this one..can you help me?
clicking on advanced+UI deletes all windows only
I got a new skin and tried to match the feet to this new one. I am able to get the foot itself to be a perfect match, but the toes look entirely different. They look like they have sand on them and are an odd beige color. If i match the toes, the foot is way off and looks strange. Any suggestions?
Amethyst, this could be because you are seeing a light shining on your toes. I’ll contact you inworld and we can talk about it.
I am having trouble coloring my feet with the UI method. The shoes I bought are really adorable and I would love to wear them but unfortunately I can’t cause I can’t get them to match my skin tone correctly :(
Hi, can you please contact me (Siddean Munro) inworld to chat about this? I can help you.
Hi – could some please provide instructions on how to change the settings using the most recent version of Firestorm? Or contact me inworld for help? I have bought a pair of both the platform heels and thongs – I love the look of the shoes – but do need assistance please. Thank you!
Hi, we have chatted about this inworld :)
Thank you, Siddean, for contacting me directly! You were a great help and I appreciate the time you took with me – not many creators would do that! Thanks again, and I love, love the shoes!
Hi. Just thought I would leave a note here for anyone using Firestorm viewer. If you are having trouble locating show color under cursor, it is in the “develop” tab, “show info” and scroll down to the third from the bottom, “show color under cursor”. Took me a while to find it, so thought others might have trouble as well. Cheers
I just wanted to say how wonderful Slink products are, the most realistis feet anywhere ! and the customer service is excellent !!! I contact Siddean today while having trouble matching my skin, within minutes she contacted me and helped me and now my shoes look great !!
Thanks so much Siddean !!
[...] The tunic style of this dress just screamed Greek to me, so I paired it with the new Womens Natural Barefeet and Ilena Sandals from SLink. These rigged mesh feet by Siddean Munro are amazing and the ankle blender option she includes makes blending them in with your skin a breeze. For a step by step instruction in fitting and blending SLink feet, take a look at her blog post here. [...]
Hi, I bought the male mesh natural, and everytime I get the foot and front of the ankle to match my skin, the back of the heel and ankle are a darker orange than the rest. I have local lights turned off, as well as followed the above instructions but can’t get it to fix, any suggestions? I’m Ravin Cox in world.
I think your basic and atmospheric shaders are off. Please go to Viewer preferences – Graphics and under advanced, turn on basic and atmospheric shaders as per this post http://blog.slinkstyle.com/2012/06/lighting-issues-in-sl-pertinent-to-matching-your-slink-feet/
hi….i was wondering if there was a way to gift 2 pairs of boots for xmas…
Yes, as advised you can use the menu by right clicking the vendors and selecting the “Buy as gift” option :)
Sorry but I don’t have time to try to work out the muddle of instructions or how the shoes are supposed to function and what you are supposed to wear with them or not to create the desired effect or what parts of the feet you’re supposed to wear with the shoes. Personally, I like shoes you can stick on and then walk off, not trying to work out what ankle blenders are etc etc. or how previous versions may or may not have worked. I find the whole thing messy and impossible to decipher. There seem to be so many options that I’m at a loss what to wear and what not to. I now have fat ankles because I had to push the feet so high up into the end of my leg.
Not everybody has used these shoes before and therefore the instructions need to be more precise and concise. Sorry but you really need to sort out clearer instructions.
What Is faster than a speeding bullet? What is more helpful than one of Santas elves? I can tell you, its the support agent that dealt with me today. Frustrated, I was ready to throw my shoes on through the window, I was moderately pissy too This lady not only helped me, but helped above and beyond the call of duty. This is what customer service should be about. Fast, friendly, helpful and I’m ready to shop at Slink now armed with substantially more than the basics on how to fit the shoes. She explained everything in patient detail. And no, they aren’t paying me to say this, its a genuine response to the best customer service I ever had on sl.
Okay, This was seriously helpful for my hands. I was getting so frustrated and couldn’t figure out what i was doing wrong or missing~ And i loved my favorite skin, and could not part with it. So after watching this, I was successful in tinting and shading my new beautiful hands!!! I couldn’t be happier with them at all. Not one bit!
Hi there, this is Raya Luik and i bought your mesh feet a while back and I had the worst trouble getting my tone right for the skin i always wear, but I just watched this video and it made me feel so silly but most of all It was so simple and so easy to get my tone right, I just want to say Thanks so much for this video and for your items, I plan on buying more things from you. :D
Hi Raya, I’m so glad you worked out your tone! You can also always ask for help inworld if you need it, or by email to Slinkhelp@gmail.com :)
I’m looking for beautiful hands where I find them?
you can find my hands at my mainstore in Second Life. Look up Siddean Munro and follow my picks!
I’ve done everything I could to get the feet to match. When I needed help all you said was it should work. Well it doesn’t. I actually went and paid 2k linden for a skin to make sure I have a skin that works and alas it does not. My skin is way lighter then what I am. I would appreciate more in depth help.
Hi Sephina, I believe my assistant contacted you to help you with matching but I wanted to advise you that I released an update a couple of days ago that should make the process of matching a lot easier. If you haven’t already, I would ask that you pop over to Slink and get your new feet from the redelivery terminal or update board :)
