An update today @ Slink – The Drape Halter

I made this cute, sexy little dress a few years ago, pre Petite Augments, and I thought for this month’s Itty Bitty Titty Committee, why not update it to include the Petite fit?

Short, plunging neckline, low back, sleeveless and halter. What better way to show off your beautiful figure!? Now with Petite and Alpha layer for Redux πŸ™‚ You can pick it up at the ITBC event, or get your update from the Slink Redelivery Terminals if you owned this dress previously.

While you are at Slink, check out my most recent release as well!

The V-Plunge @ Slink

Take the plunge at Slink in this daring lowcut figure-hugging dress – the V-Plunge. The neckline is so low you will definitely need some Hollywood tape to keep it in place! The backline similarly so, with a stark contrast band to emphasise your curves! She is also on the Slink Marketplace store!

Also at Slink today, after their time at the IBTC event, the Gala Wrap top and the Catriona split leather skirt. Made exclusively for all Slink Physique Original and Hourglass, and Original and Hourglass Petites as always!

Full demos available! Come and try them on today @Slink!

Gala and Catriona – Slink@ the Itty Bitty Titty Committee event!

Did you know that Slink Physique Original and Hourglass bodies have had a tiny breast option since early 2018? Indeed they have! She is called Petite, and Slink launched her at Skin Fair, March 2018.

This augment comes in both Slink Classic and Slink Redux versions, to suit whichever body you personally prefer, and she’s been available all along in the Slink Mainstore! You just wear with the matching body, and the Petite behaves as if it was always part of the base body!

Today at the new Itty Bitty Titty Committee event, I have released the Gala Wrap top and her sister, the Catriona skirt in complementing colours!

Gala comes in all fitting options for Slink female bodies – Physique Original and Hourglass, Original and Hourglass Petite, and 12 pretty, understated, Fall colours.

Catriona comes in Physique Original and Hourglass fitting, and 12 colours to go with Gala.

I also have some of my recent releases for Physique up at the IBTC event stall – all available in petite fittings of course, and new shiny vendors to show off how pretty they are! πŸ™‚

Hop on over to the IBTC event and see what other lovelies you can find! Gala and Catriona will be available in the Slink Mainstore from the 21st of August. πŸ™‚

Skylar is now @ Slink

Modeled by Siddean and Rachelle

Our cute as a button Skylar has been celebrating the 17th birthday of her favourite hangout, Second Life, for the last 2 weeks! Somewhere in the wee hours of last night, she stumbled home and caught a few zzz’s. Skylar, with her high-waisted, comfy jersey skirt, and eyebrow-raising peekaboo crop-top has now made an appearance in the Slink Mainstore, freshened up with brand new textures, new material maps, and 4 new colours, as well as the option to pick up a single colour, if that’s what you want. You can get all 12 super cute stripes, for our usual 2.5x the single price!

While you are there, check out Leila! She is right next door to Skylar and is definitely one you don’t want to miss!

Slink – Homme & Miranda

We are pleased to announce 2 new Slinky releases at Skin Fair 2020.

Miranda is a new head to the Slink Visage range. She is sweet and youthful with a narrow chin and prominent dimples! Miranda is compatible with Slink Physique Original and Hourglass bodies. She is a Slink Redux (Bakes on Mesh) head and will work with system skins and makeup tattoo layers!Β  Fully working demo is available for Miranda at the Slink Skinfair Booth!Slink Miranda Head Poster

Homme is a male presenting chest Augment for the Slink Physique Original and Hourglass bodies. Homme comes in 2 versions – one that can use male skin placement, and one that can use female skin placement. Female skins that have cleavage dehancers or no breast shading will work best for the Fem Variant.

Simply wear your Slink Female body of choice, and then wear the most appropriate Homme attachment, and your chest will transform! Available in Redux (Bakes on Mesh) so it works with system skins and clothing. Available now at Skin Fair 2020

(PLEASE NOTE – Due to the UV changes – some textures may warp with this augment)

The Slink Physique Classic (appliers) Body is STAYING!

Hey Slinkies,

As I’ve received the question a few times now, let me clear something up: We are not taking the Classic body parts away! Neither Original, nor Hourglass, nor Male, nor any of the separate hands and feet.

In the notecard I mention a date after which I had planned to take it out of the vendor (at which point the version in your inventory would continue to workΒ and anyone who bought the body could still get a Classic body upon request). I’ve decided to change this. In the next update, I’ll remove the date from the notecard and the Classic body will remain packed in with the Redux body far into the future.

I’m writing this blog now as the update is still a little while away and I didn’t want this to be unclear for folks.

To clarify the original date a little; when I wrote the notecard with Caine, we figured a year from release would be a long enough timeline for people to happily switch to BoM. It was never our intent to force people to do so, and again, the Classic version was to be still available upon request!

To restate this again – Classic isn’t going anywhere and will remain packed in with the Redux body for anyone who prefers to use Classic.

Classic will also continue to work for as long as you have it. We are not and CAN not remove it or make it stop working in any way.

If you have any questions about the Redux body, have a look at the FAQ as I’ve collated many common questions there. If there’s anything else, don’t hesitate to reach out in-world to Slink Resident!

Zoey Pumps @ Slink

I have just popped these on the wall in the ladies section at the Slink Mainstore today!

TAXI TO THE MAINSTORE

These pumps come in 3 heights – Flat, Kitten and Mid – and are able to be worn with the Slink Physique Original and Hourglass body BUNDLES, the Slink female Deluxe feet, and the Slink Female separate feet. If you wear them with the BUNDLE or DELUXE, the height will change when you switch your feet height via the Physique Utilities HUD.

The HUD that comes with Zoey contains 20 colours, able to be applied to 4 separate channels – the main shoe, the straps, the laces and the beads, as well as 3 sole colour options – Beige, Red and Black. You can customise these to every single outfit! She has a beautiful range of complementary colours and even a couple of metallic options! Simply select the colour you want from the buttons on the left, and then click on the shoe parts on the right to apply the selected colour.

New instore @ Slink this week

We have a couple of new releases in Slink this week! Read on, fellow Slinkies πŸ™‚

First up – I received a few requests from men for Male Dynamic compatible versions of the exxxxxxxxtra long nails that I released for women a week earlier, so here they are!

Designed for Slink Dynamic Male Hands – each set comes with 3 lengths controlled by a handy little HUD. Turn off the nails on your hands before wearing these πŸ™‚

And now – the single most requested item in my to-do list is finally here! BUTT PHYSICS!

I have just today placed on the wall at Slink 2 new augments for the Physique Female body system – the Hourglass Natural Bottom augment and the Original Natural Bottom augment. Naturally these are compatible with the bodies specified in their names and only compatible with Slink bodies. There is also a physics layer included to give you that sexy jiggle – modifiable so you can adjust the settings to your own liking. Redux (bakes on Mesh) only.

(NOTE – May not be compatible with mesh clothing that covers the bottom. In that case, just remove the augment!)

Making an alpha texture? Yes you can!

Among all the Bakes on Mesh hype, we have realised that over the last few years one single important thing has been forgotten when SL’s talented creators have been making new mesh clothing – alpha layers. Alpha layers are now foundational to how we wear clothing in SL, as they were a mere 5 years ago, and for some, they always have been. Alpha layers allow us to arbitrarily hide parts of our Bakes on Mesh enabled bodies (Disclaimer – the body MUST be set-up correctly in order for alpha layers to work).

In Slink’s case, this is the recently updated Redux system. Anything Redux will automatically accept alpha layers, and provided they have a blur applied to them before exporting, you can use the cool alpha mask sliders to move the edges. Alpha layers are much simpler and more versatile to use than alpha cut zone HUD’s ever were. They are fast, they require no extra scripting in the body, and require nobody to setup an auto-alpha script before they sell their items. They are not prone to glitching and won’t accidentally turn off or on parts of your body when you don’t want them to! And – almost ANYONE can make one with a few clicks and a few $L. Of course, an alpha made specifically for the clothing by the creator is ideal, but not required when we can learn how to make them ourselves! πŸ™‚

To this end, I have made 2 tutorials for making alpha textures for use in Second Life. The first is for Photoshop, which is my image editing program of choice and I know exactly what I am doing in there.

The second is for G.I.M.P. which stands for Gnu Image Manipulation Program and I have exactly 30 minutes experience in at the time of publishing this video! It is however very interesting and much improved from the last time I looked at it several years ago and I think I will try and learn it in a bit more depth. G.I.M.P has one big, big advantage over Photoshop. It is open source – which for most means absolutely free and always will be absolutely free. Definitely worth checking out if you want to get into creating! Download G.I.M.P. HERE.

I apologise for the audio quality – it’s not as good as I’d like. Clearly I need to hook up my proper mic for the next one πŸ˜€
