Slinky, Sexy Leila, now at Slink!

Do I need to say more? I mean, I am going to say more. Holy WOW this set is sexy! Definitely the most slinky thing I have ever released at Slink, which is saying something. Leila comes in 8 beautiful metal options and for when you want to get close to someone special, there is a Naughty option right on the HUD! You can rez your HUD nearby to give someone else access to the Naughty bits.

The colours are available for separate purchase, or you can pick up the pack for 2.5x the single price! Well worth it 🙂

Now available at the Slink Mainstore

Slink – Homme & Miranda

Now available at the Slink Mainstore

 

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!  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)

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 🙂

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 🙂

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! 🙂

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 😀

Updated and New Heads @ Slink

I am pleased to finally announce new heads @ Slink this week! These are the first heads we have released in 4 years, due to various technical limitations and other things needing our focus, but the recent Bakes on Mesh release in Second Life has significantly increased our available time for new content! So here they are, the first in what will hopefully be many, of the Slink Visage Redux Range. More details about these heads will follow the pictures below.

Slink Emma Poster

First up we have Emma. Emma is an update to the original Emma released a few years ago. She is fully Bento ready and uses Bakes on Mesh for skins and makeup. If you previously purchased Emma, you will find this update in the redelivery terminals.

Slink Becky Poster

Next up is cute little Becky. Like Emma, she is an update to the previous version of Becky, and also available in the redelivery terminals.

Taxi to Slink

Slink Jacquie Poster

Sweet Jacquie is new to the Visage range. She is a soft, youthful face with a slightly melancholy lilt about her eyes. Of course she is fully Bento animated and you can adjust her shape with your face sliders. She uses Bakes on Mesh for her textures.

Slink Amelia Poster

Gorgeous Amelia is up next. She is a more angular face with strong cheekbones and square jaw. Again, Amelia is fully Bento and Bakes on Mesh compatible.

Slink Ashlynn Poster

Last but not least in the female faces is Ashlynn. Ashlynn has a beautiful aquiline nose and strong jaw. She is probably my favourite of all the ladies!

Slink Anderson Poster

And not to leave out the men, we have Anderson. You could cut glass with those cheekbones!

Hud Snapshot

Taxi to Slink

All Slink Visage heads are fully seamless with Slink Physique bodies. Just wear and go! Full working demos are available! Please try before you buy 🙂

The Visage Utilities HUD has been redesigned along the same theme as the Physique Utilities HUD for the Redux system. On the HUD you will find options for eyelashes, tinting panels for lashes, HD Lipgloss, skin and specular, as well as our animation system.

The animations include an idle that can run all the time in the background, a series of static poses for photography purposes, and a series of chat emotes. You can see what the chat emotes are and how they work by clicking the ? next to “emotes on” to bring up the emotes help panel.

Each pack comes with skins, brows and shapes for you to get started with.

These heads do not come with mesh eyes. You can use your system eyes, or use your own mesh eyes if you choose.

You must remove your full head alpha layer in order to see the Visage Redux heads properly.

Please note – these heads do NOT use appliers for skin, only system layers. Materials (bump and shine) are still handled by appliers and both Slink and Omega appliers will work for this. If using Omega, wear the included Omega Bridge and install the Slink Omega kit from the Omega marketplace store.

 

Slink @ Uber Summer Lovin’

Slink is a guest of the lovely Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice at this month’s round of UBER. The theme is Summer Lovin’ so while shivering in the Australian winter, I made this sexy little strappy Bikini for you!

Athena is available now in 16 colours and 6 multipack extra patterns to match with Baiastices’s Olympia gladiator heels which Sissy has also released this month. She is made exclusively for the Slink Physique Original and Hourglass bodies, and their Petite Augments.

TAXI TO UBER RIGHT NOW!

New feet, and a big body parts update at Slink!

PLEASE NOTE: All of the single feet are available in the store, and FREE updates to V3 for the seamless ankles, redesigned easy to use Single Set Hands and Feet HUD, built in ankle locker and PHYS size buttons are in the Redelivery terminals.

Both female bodies (Original and Hourglass) have also been updated for free, as have all of the female single hands and all 4 hand packs.

You can get your updates from the redelivery terminals, or contact Slink Resident.

And now…. What is NEW in this release?

  • Warning: Long post, lots of pictures!! Heaps of information!

Today I am releasing the newest sets of feet in the Slink Female Avatar Enhancement range.
Slink Mainstore Teleport

These new feet are Kitten, for all your vintage needs, and Pointe for the dancers among us.

WHY NOW?􀀂

The last time Slink released feet was nearly 3 years ago, with the release of the High style at Shoetopia. For a long time, the feet have only been available as 3 separate purchases, due to the fact that they were released at very different times.

WHY THESE 2 STYLES?

I have had many requests for both of these styles over the last few years. Slink customers wanted a set of feet that was a height between the Flat and the Mid feet, and I’ve often been asked for the Pointe feet for dancers, roleplayers, and photography.

WHAT IS THE DELUXE PACK?

In the new DELUXE PACK, we have combined all 5 sets of feet (3 original and 2 new) into one attachment, and created a HUD for easy selection of the feet style that you need with the click of a button. You can mix and match, and turn them off as needed!

The Deluxe Pack is not an update, it is a new product, available now for the first time.

Feet Deluxe Ven small

 

WHAT ABOUT THOSE THAT ALREADY OWN FEET?􀀃

We want everyone who already owns one or more pairs of the single feet to be rewarded for their support, but unfortunately our technology doesn’t realistically allow us to extend a loyalty discount exclusively to current feet owners…

So, we have decided to release the single Kitten and Pointe feet at the usual price of $675L each, but for the first 2 weeks after release (3rd April to 16th April) the Deluxe Pack of all 5 feet with improved HUD will be priced at just $1350L, which is equal to just 2 of the single feet! Think of it as buying the Pointe and Kitten styles, and getting the original 3 styles and the very cool Deluxe HUD features as a bonus!

After the special offer period, the price of the pack will be increased. This pack will never be this price again, so get in and get it while it’s hot!!

What else is in this update?

  • All of the female feet have been updated to have a seamless join with the Female Physique original and Hourglass bodies.
  • There is now a built in ankle lock in the Utilities HUD, so no one has any excuse for broken ankles!!
  • The Hands and Feet Utilities HUD has been made over, hands and feet are now on separate tabs for ease of use, and there is a handy infographic included.

Slink Hands and Feet Utils HUD Hands Tab Guide

  • There is now a PHYS button on the hands and feet tabs, which will activate the ankle and wrist best suited for your Physique Original and Hourglass bodies.
  • Because of this, both of the bodies also needed to be updated at the same time. You will find them in the re-delivery terminal. If you want truly seamless ankles, you must update your Physique body.
  • All of the (female) hands, feet and bodies have had a very small update to the latest Omega Script.

Female Hands Large

  • The Ballet Slipper style Margot has had a little facelift, and now works with all 5 styles of feet! Margot cleverly listens to the Deluxe feet HUD, to change when you change your feet, and there is also a Mini HUD available for those with single feet, that allows you to match your Margot to your style of feet with the click of a button! It’s pretty cool 🙂 If you previously bought Margot, you will find the update in the redelivery terminal!

Updates and remakes @ Slink

I originally made these boots in 2011 before standard sizing. They were one of the first mesh creations I added to Slink and I loved them very much!

Well now it’s 2015 and I have a beautiful mesh body that was crying out for gorgeous thigh boots. I’ve been wanting to update these for Physique for some time, and I finally got time this week and here they are!

I have also created 24 all new, lovely colours and textures for them, (and updated them for materials support), in both soft leather and shiny, shiny vinyl!  Available now in the Slink Mainstore!

I have retired the original boots. However, if you previously purchased them and you’d like Physique compatible versions, I have updated them – just get a redelivery in the store for free!

Physique, Visage, Avatar Enhancements Update @ Slink

The Slink Physique Female body, Hands, Feet and Visage Heads have all been updated today. The 2 major changes are tinting options, and Omega support! Please go to the Slink Store and hit up the redelivery terminals for your updates!!

PhysAd Large New

The Omega system is a universal applier system which allows you to use your Omega HUDs with the Slink Body system. Both Male and Female body systems are now able to use Omega. You need the Slink Omega Activator HUD from the Love -n- Lust Designs store, wear it, your Omega HUD and you’re set to go! Of course, Slink appliers still work!

Physique, Visage and the female hands and feet can now also be tinted. If you want to be purple, green, pastel pink, be my guest! It’s a lot of fun to play with the tinting options. You can tint the skin, tattoo layer, clothing and underwear layer, so if your tights aren’t quite right for you, you can now adjust them 🙂

I have also done a little update to the Physique Male body today, fixed a thing here and there! Nothing mandatory but if you have one, you can also get the update from the redelivery terminal.

As with updates everywhere, please read the included update notes for what has changed.
