I’ve been trying to find a fine and free skin but so far it’s been a struggle, however, a couple of interesting things did crop up and the least of these is this really lovely and yes FREE skin.
Before I start blabbing on I will give you the details first. A free GG skin from YS&YS(your skin your shape) taken in my Optimums Nams setting with a face light so low I forget I even have it on, it’s like the Touche Eclat for SL skins but with or without this is a lovely skin.
So whats the problem? It’s just that, a skin and no appliers at all so you can see the dreaded join at the neck! I’m seriously spoilt and lazy and since I have a PumeC addiction and they come with so many Appliers as standard it’s been a long time since I’ve had to splash out and buy one separate to the skin. I’m also totally lazy because of course Mesh Bodies such as my SLink do come with a skin matching Hud but “ain’t nobody no time for that” or rather I don’t but of course you just may have. This skin is to be found in the in-world shop but I was also looking on the Marketplace, that’s a headache in itself, and I grabbed a whole load of the YS&YS demos and they’re gorgeous skin so yes I had high hopes when I TPed over but sadly just the 1 giftie and if you’re not a lazy mare like me it might just be whatcha looking for.
I almost forgot to say that although you get 1 skin you get 5 shades and some shapes and I did slap some of my make up layers on(not in this picture though you get exactly what you see) to see if I could change the look and most of my lips sticks/eyeshadows/blushers etc covered up the original layers so it means 1 skin=several different looks. The other thing is that although the YS&YS is mainly a skin shop there is a small selection of decor items and there is a really interesting and unique kitchen set up.
Another thing I noticed when scrolling through the never-ending lists on the Marketplace is there is a pretty thriving Gacha resale market and a lot of high-end skins for sale at Gacha prices. So if you have some Lindens to spare but can’t afford the shop prices then the Gacha prices might just be what you want and because you don’t have to take a chance then you can find something you like but you won’t be able to try the demo and BE CAREFUL to read the description of what it is you’re buying. I’d hate to see someone buy a skin only to find it was an eyeshadow etc.
Stoopid me and of course a lot of people still don’t have mesh bits and this skin is obviously wearable for you.
PS The hair is one of the Mina gacha hairs. Chantal is one of my favs as although on the surface she’s a simple and unfussy look the hair is swept back into a big loose bun at the base of my neck.
