Sweet as Candy

Even though the cardigan is a bright red slouchy casual cardigan once I put on the “coochie cutters” shorts I knew I could get away with the killer heels.  Cardigan is mesh and comes as an all in one with a T-shirt.  The shorts are really short shorts and as you can see great details even down to the frayed edges.  Samie outfit is the name but the shoes are appropriately called Spyke Pumps

Close up on the Killer Heels and they can kill you with those vicious spiked thin heels to the very pokey spikes.  Now they come with an easy to use Hud, you can also change the size by clicking on them but the HUD allows you to also change the skin tone.  You get a choice of colours and a  slider for tweaking but this gives me a chance to explain how you can type in the actual skin colour number which should mean the skin of your AV and your shoe skin should be identical or as near damn. Now I use phoenix but it should be the same for most SL viewers.  So here it is step by step…


ADVANCE then down to UI, a new window opens then go down all the way to the bottom and click “SHOW COLOUR UNDER CURSOR” and Voila.  If you look at the bottom right hand of your screen, just above your music volume slider, you will see tiny numbers and they relate to whatever your cursor is hovering over at the time.  So when you want to match AV skin to shoe skin you place the cursor at roughly the ankle and record the numbers, eg 114,94,71. Then remove all colour from the shoe skin so just pick the lightest colour option or slide the slider to the palest poss and this gives a blank canvas for the new colour your going to add.  Some HUDs have the place for you to type the numbers in or in this case there is a little mic symbol and you click that and then type the numbers in chat and it picks them up.  Now not all HUDs allow this but when they do it’s very very helpful.

Couldn’t resist this, left my AV working as I popped off somewhere and when I came back took a quick snap just to show that even when you’re not posing this is a really good, wearable outfit but with those shoes they become wickedly naughty.  Make sure you check out the Marketplace for some great Dollarbies and of course demos for you to try.
