Is WCIF empty or is it just me? Did I inadvertantly exceed the 1 per day or 3 per week limit? Don't think so, but can't go and check because I can't see anything in WCIF anymore. So confused. Maybe it'll come back tomorrow?

HiLo Skirts WIP
Date Posted: 14th Jun 2014 at 7:35 PM
new project, midlength HiLo skirt
will probably do a longer one on Trapping's mesh too,
maybe something on a slightly more flared skirt mesh, this one is a bit narrow
working on the basic shape and outline of the bottom hem
just starting to add some shading, mostly to the underskirt
Amaryll's Sophie Edit
Date Posted: 14th Jun 2014 at 4:02 AM
Love Amaryll's "sophie" mesh and her sweet textures, but the jaggies in the collar at the shoulders irked me. I made some tiny tweaks to the mesh UV to reduce them. Also rounded the bottom a teensy bit so it's not straight across, more like curved bottoms. Just teeny changes, but in case anyone else wants them, here you go. The edited mesh replaces Amaryll's original. (I learned I need to move the arms down to the sides in Milkshape when previewing textures to minimize this distortion at the shoulders. It happens with most Maxis meshes.)
I tell myself I don't get hung up on favorite counts, but I do quite enjoy it when someone favorites. Bit less so when they unfavorite. What's the opposite of warm fuzzy? Cold prickly? I know some folks use favorites as a "to download" list, then they unfavorite when they download stuff, but what's wrong with using browser bookmarks? Lost two faves on a thread recently and got mildly mopey for a moment. There, that's out of my system now. Totally not hung up on favorite counts. Yeah. ;D Time to walk the baby and then maybe see about texturing some turtlenecks!
Foomika made an outfit with a lovely satin tank. I swiped the tank texture and stuck it on one of my (as yet unreleased) meshes. Don't know if I'll get permission to share this or not. Policy seems to indicate no uploading, but let's you do the same thing I did. edit: To be clear, the policy lets you, on your personal computer, do what I did, for your own use.
Trapping Alpha Skirts! :D

Trapping made alpha skirts from my mesh with Sentate's shoes! YAY! But I only found it just now, boooo! Would have been nice to know before I started my own AF conversion. Oh well. edit: Or maybe I saw these earlier then forgot? Entirely possible! XD Baby on the brain.
chain belts and untucked skirts
Date Posted: 4th Apr 2014 at 5:43 AM
I'm putting chain belts on some untucked skirts. The idea is you put a belt over any untuckable top and instantly jazz it up a bit. You can see one such experiment below. I'll probably use a different skirt texture, maybe a few mini skirt meshes too. The WIP below doesn't have finished shading so it looks rather flat, but that will change.
