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! Retro Party Dress

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.

Underbusts Now at *Perception*!

I've finally finished my 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.

*Perception* Coutil Corsets

Yes I know, I've been awful about blogging lately. But better late than never, right?
I put out a new set of mesh corsets in five colors of coutil.
The green one has extra floral flossing detail, and all but the tea-dyed one have rhinestone embellishments.

They're in the six sizes I've been using; the five standard sizes plus the M+ size for very curvy avatars. They also come with an adjustable unrigged lace piece and lace trim clothing layer.
Corsets and demos are available in-world at *Perception* and on the Marketplace.


The tea-dyed one is actually meant to be a virtual mockup; I've got some coutil that I tea-dyed after (sob) my iron spit on it. I'm still nervous about cutting into coutil, though. I also haven't decided exactly how I feel about the tea dyed coutil as both strength layer and fashion fabric. It's certainly practical-- a good color to wear as an undergarment, not quite as prone to getting dirty as white, cooler than if it had more layers, easier to clean than if it were flatlined to a silk fashion fabric layer. But I want and need the flatlining practice, and tea-dyed coutil just isn't as pretty as those dupionis I got from the Silk Baron scrap sale that have been waiting to become a fashion fabric layer of a corset. So I keep fiddling with the pattern more, and procrastinating.

*Perception* Damask Corsets

I've released another set of rigged mesh corsets, this time in damask. (Plus that turquoise straggler that belongs with the dupioni set.) I used a cream-colored damask jacquard from a FabricMart bundle as the base texture, which I think turned out quite well.

I actually put them up last week, but I've been procrastinating about blogging them. Partly because I needed to update my Drupal version (which I did this morning) and partly because I've been having issues getting pictures I like.
I'd really much prefer to take some pictures with a decent backdrop instead of just cutting out the solid background, but nothing seems quite right. I'm not even quite sure what it is that I want for a background.. just that whatever it is, I don't have it. (Suggestions on that would be appreciated..)

My corsets use standard sizing XXS-L, plus the M+ size intended for very curvy avatars. (Based on Inhandra's shape.) The M+ here isn't actually as different as it is for some other garments since I made them with the intent of using alpha layers to nip in the waist.

Corsets and demos are available on the Marketplace and in-world at *Perception*.

So far I've done versions in black, white, "blue raspberry" (purple,) and "bejeweled sky" (A dark blue with rhinestones.)

I'm still fiddling with fabrics and embellishments. Ideally this will be a good way of planning future corsets.
