(click here for a closeup raw shot of the shoes)

Damien Fate has added a new line to his well established FATE brand, FATEstep. Always an overachiever, he has introduced this line with a release of 20 new shoes for both men and women as well as 2 sock HUDs, plain and retro. All are available on marketplace and the mainstore.

Each shoe comes with a HUD that has incredible customization features with up to 60 textures, a color tinting wheel, materials controls and even custom preset slots to save your creations to. I’m wearing the nylon chucks which come with art from the talented Nylon Pinkney as texture options. Here is an image of the nylon chucks HUD to give you an idea:

Manberry is wearing the Ziggy Chucks which are similar in style and have the same customization options, but with simpler textures. Both of these are unisex and available for different versions of feet: default classic avatar, Maitreya and SLink.

All of the shoes are so well done, as always expected from Damien and quite a variety as well. You can see them all in detail on his flickr. My favorite of the bunch is definitely the Nylon Chucks. Nylon Pinkney’s art is so unique and beautiful. You can see more of her work by checking out her SL brands Nylon Outfitters, Yummy Accessories, Ooh Lala Lingerie and The Wriggles worth through her blog.

Here is a slideshow of Damien’s full FATEstep release from his flickr:

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →
