I've created a new mesh Femme Fatale halter-dress for the event, which will be available in black, white, checkered, and a swirl pattern. The release of the mesh is exclusive to the event, so no colors until after it's over! *Perception* Femme Fatale Dress in Black*Perception* Femme Fatale Dress in Black
The dress comes in 7 sizes, the 5 standard sizes XXS-L plus special sizes M+ (for very curvy shapes) and Bx (for top-heavy shapes.) It comes with top and bottom glitch layers, two alpha mask options, and full-perm copies of the alpha mask textures for easy customizing and combining.

Hunt begins September 1st!

*Perception* Main Store

A Brand New *Perception* Mesh!

A new mesh is now available at *Perception*!
This is one of the items that I was working on in July and ended up temporarily putting aside in the mad scramble to get everything together for Vintage Fair. So now that Vintage Fair is winding down, it's time for new main store releases! (If you haven't gotten to Vintage Fair yet, make sure, go! It ends on the 29th, so you're almost out of time! The crowds have died down a bit and they've turned off the landing point routing, so you can even teleport straight to the *Perception* booth on Retro if you like.)

*Perception* Flutter Sleeve Tops -- Deeps*Perception* Flutter Sleeve Tops -- Deeps
*Perception* Flutter-Sleeve tops feature a beautiful damask-printed silk dupioni texture in two sets, deep and muted. They're L$145 each or L$485 for a fatpack of four.
As usual, there are seven sizes: the five standard sizes XXS-L, with the addition of special sizes M+ (for very curvy shapes) and Bx (for top-heavy shapes.) Demos are available in-world at *Perception* and on the Marketplace.
I even managed an iridescent effect with some of the deep colors, which I love. I have a weakness for all things iridescent, and it's extremely difficult to capture any kind of iridescence in a flat texture. (I can't wait till we get specular mapping!)

Additionally, a version in "Clear Sky" damask (aka sky blue) is available for FREE as the *Perception* Subscriber Kiosk join gift! And in case you're worried about spam, I procrastinate about sending out notices almost as much as I procrastinate about blogging!
So hop on over to *Perception* and get your free gift!

Vintage Fair is here, and so is another brand new mesh from *Perception*!

Vintage Party Dress!Vintage Party Dress!
Despite some viewer technical difficulties, it's finished, just in the nick of time! So far it's available in two colors, turquoise and lavender. I'll be adding some additional colors soon.
Like all *Perception* rigged mesh, the dress comes in 7 sizes: the 5 standard sizes XXS-L and special sizes M+ for very curvy avatars and Bx for top-heavy avatars.

Currently available only at the *Perception* booth on Vintage Fair's Retro sim. Vintage Fair, Retro (The slurl takes you to the landing point. You should be able to click it again for an arrow pointing you towards the *Perception* booth.)

Vintage Fair is Coming!

Vintage Fair approaches and *Perception* is participating this year!
Boatneck Top with Shetland Wool SkirtBoatneck Top with Shetland Wool Skirt
New *Perception* products for the fair include mesh boatneck tops (a brand new mesh!) and a new set of denim underbust corsets.
Other products available at the *Perception* booth will include mesh Shetland wools skirts and selection of underbust and overbust corsets.

*Perception* meshes come in 7 sizes, the five standard sizes with the additions of M+, size created for very curvy avatars, and Bx, created for top-heavy avatars. All meshes are original and unique!

There's also a dress I'm hoping to get finished in time for the fair's opening, but if Blender doesn't play nice it may have to be a late addition.

More Mesh Corsets!

*Perception* Underbust Corset -- Red and Gold Damask*Perception* Underbust Corset -- Red and Gold Damask
I finished another set of textures for my underbust corset mesh. Damask!

So far they're in black, ivory, red/gold, black/silver, and purple/silver. There will be at least a couple more eventually; I'm still fiddling with the textures for a black/red and I'll definitely do silver-grey one like I did with the overbusts too. (And as usual, I'm still open to suggestions!)

Corsets and demos are available in-world at *Perception* and on the Marketplace.
*Perception* Underbust Corset -- Purple and Silver Damask*Perception* Underbust Corset -- Purple and Silver Damask
I'm kinda thinking about doing another version with less realistic seaming. The true-to-life seaming makes it easier to make them look real, but harder to do any of those nifty artsy corsets. I haven't quite figured out how to go about doing that without feeling like I'm sacrificing quality.

But, it's SL, right? If I can defy gravity by lifiting off and flying, why can't I defy the limitations of fabric grainlines? And I certainly don't have to worry about how I'd wiggle into a corset without a split front busk. Right-click and "wear" or right-click and "add." It's not like I actually have to physically put it on, or like the trappings that would let me get in and out of it in RL are even functional in SL. Some of them should look like I could but I think I'm limiting myself by feeling like I shouldn't deviate from reality. I'm pretty sure that SL is meant to have a healthy dose of fantasy too.

Tea-Dyed Coutil Corset -- Pictures on Me!

My parents visited last week, so I finally have photos of my tea-dyed coutil corset on me!

Tea-Dyed Coutil Corset Front PhotoTea-Dyed Coutil Corset Front Photo

The fit is really pretty good (certainly better than on my dress form!) but I am kinda wishing I'd cinched the waist a bit more. I didn't want it to be as dramatic as my denim corset, which had a pretty significant reduction, but I think I ended up giving it too little. I'm frustrated with the double-layer construction method; I think it makes me too cautious, since nothing can really be changed.

The binding isn't as smooth as I would have liked it to be, I'm not exactly sure what went wrong there. Binding seems to be too easily forgotten when researching corsetry techniques.
Tea-dyed Coutil Corset BackTea-dyed Coutil Corset Back

There's some wrinkling in the back at the waist. I think this means that I gave that back panel a bit too much curve. It might have been a discrepancy in the inner back panel vs. the outer back panel, which I guess would have given more or less the same result-- fabric being pulled where it isn't supposed to be pulled.

Underbusts Now at *Perception*!

I've finally finished my underbust corsets!
*Perception* Underbust Corsets*Perception* Underbust Corsets
Four underbust corsets are now available in-world at *Perception* and on the Marketplace.
They come in black, red, green and purple coutil. I'll be doing more colors and fabrics soon. (And as always suggestions and requests are welcome!) They come with two alpha layer options currently; I'll add more if there are shapes I haven't accounted for with them.
