What’s in a Shape?

What's in a Shape?

Last month I released a standard second life shape directly to my marketplace store. The only reason I did that is because people kept asking about my shape and so I thought I would experiment and see what I could come up with. I didn’t expect to, but I sold quite a few of them.

Allesist Klaar was one of the people that bought one. She then contacted me with a photo idea she had. She wanted us both to wear the same Pretty Shape I had released and then take a photo together. I have always admired her photos, so even though my schedule is insane, I made sure to make some time for it. I’m so happy I did because it was a pleasure shooting with her. However, my image is not that great compared to hers, so please do click over to her flickr to see her version of the first image and her thoughts about it. I absolutely loved her lighting and angle. If you’re looking for her style credits, you can find them on her blog.

It’s interesting to see in the images that we both are wearing the same shape, even the same Mesh Project mesh body but our styling and skin tones immediately give away who is who. In fact, I’m not wearing my regular shape in any of the images in this post, but I think I still kind of look like myself, no? So I guess our shapes don’t really define “us” or make us who we are. However, I’m still pretty attached to my regular shape.

Since I did that first shape, a few people contacted me to see if I would be making more. I really wasn’t sure if I would be able to but since I got such a positive response, I thought I’d try again. This time I wanted to go a different route. My first shape was very cute and pretty so I wanted the next one to be a bit more evil/devious and mature looking. So I used my favorite League skin and tried to make the shape look a bit like Sushmita Sen, I love her vixen look! I don’t know if I succeeded, but I had fun trying.

StrawberrySingh - Devious Shape

The devious shape is up on my marketplace store now, but since it has very drastic features, I highly recommend you guys try the DEMO first before purchasing to ensure that you like it with your favorite skins. I have provided two eyebrow bases with the shape just in case you don’t like the high arch.

A big thank you to Alles for asking me to do the pic with her, it was so much fun. Also, thank you to all those that bought my first shape and enjoyed it. I really appreciate all the support! <3
