2012 Color Challenge: Week 5 - Patina
I struggled a lot with Patina, and I don't think I'm the only one. I was all set for one other outfit, then it seemed to green, so I ended up with this - an outfit from De La Soul with multiple HUDs to allow me to mix and matched as much as my heart pleased, and with a tealy-color close enough to Patina to make me happy. Needless to say. though, none of what I'm wearing is actually called Patina.The top and bottom are prim-only clothing, no body textures at all, and are recolorable using a wide variety of HUDs - which makes for an incredible amount of customization and, in this case, patinazation!
I totally just made that word up.
I added the new De La Soul Glaive jewelry (I'm wearing a LOT of De La Soul today, I know!) set in to highlight it - which is also changable with a HUD. I had a lot of fun shifting around the colors to match, and found this shiny dark teal which almost was patinaish.
Totally just made that word up, too.
I rounded it off with these awesome tippytoe feet from SLink - look, I managed to namedrop feet and show them, all in one post! I love these feet, so amazingly, with the curve and the arch of them - I've really fallen in love with the positive effect they have on finishing a barefooted look. Second Life feet are so pathetic and ugly, and these seem to be almost real - it's wonderful!
Also wonderful (how's that for a segue?) is this sim! It's a new build by Bryn Oh for the Avatar Games, and it takes many of the staples of her builds and makes them enormous! I look tiny and fairy-like in my full sized avatar; wait until you see me there in my mini faerie avatar!
