Says My Heart

I went exploring the Lefevre Mansion the other day and just knew that I’d have to come back and explore and take a few pictures when I had some free time. But, since I was wearing this bright and really pretty skirt outfit from Liv-Glam, I decided to go ahead and use the sim as a backdrop for my photos. As always, Sam and Kim have produced some really lovely pieces this season and the loads of events they participate in daily guarantee that you are never paying too much for the dozens of combinations that come with most of their designs. I, for one, love the their system of HUDs- not only does it save room in my massive and messy inventory, but it also allows for me to keep dozens of instant outfits on hand at the click of a button.

Go for the Gold

So, SL materials have been out for some time now and nearly every mesh creator I come across in my travels is experimenting with it. Some, I find, have misplaced the use of this new feature, using it with textures where the high-shine that materials generates are irrelevant. I mean, do we really need sunglasses to look at hair?

On the other hand, textures like leather, metals and gemstones really pick up the use of materials in a fascinating way. I just love playing around with natural lighting when I am wearing a materials enabled piece, especially this gorgeous peplum top (that also happens to be fitted mesh) from Liv-Glam and high-waisted leather shorts from Ricielli.

So, what do you guys think of SL materials? Is it over or under used and do you like the effects it gives off?
