If you know me, or have read any of my blogs you know that I am a big shoe freak, I love shoes and now I love prim feet/toes shoes. I know many still are not into the prim feet and I think a big reason for that is because of the skin tinting. I agree completely, some prim feet are incredibly hard to match and can be compared to fitting eyelashes on the frustration meter. I had been planning on doing a comparison of the most popular prim feet shoes until today when I found another blogger had just done it, and she did an awesome job. I agree with about everything she says about everyone of the 8 shoes in the review. Therefore, I am going to link you to her post, but, not so fast. I do have a few things I really need to add to the subject.
The Blog is fashioncracked, the blogger is Katey Coppola from Glitterati Poses and the post is
Okay first things first, Onyx, I have a girl crush on you now. OMG those shoes are incredible, I think competition has arrived for Moody. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my Moody’s and I will still buy them, because I buy all the shoes that I find of good quality and style. I do hope that Moody might answer the competition with comparable prices, as I do think Moody’s are a bit overpriced, especially now lol. Anyway, back to the new Maitreya shoes *drools* I do have one wish with these, I bought the fatpack and was a little disappointed to find they were not color change, that is the extra bonus of shelling out the bucks at once for me, so I can be lazy and just change colors instead of having to dig around in my inventory to change the whole shoe. I know this is a minor thing but I hope it will be a consideration for the next group to be released (which I really hope is very soon *crosses fingers*). Everything else about these shoes is absolutely dreamy, smooth hud and I like the way it tucks away neatly not obstructing my screen yet ot hard to find, see little things are important to me. The tinting and sizing is super easy so far for the skins I have worn with them and the toes, I love those toes, they really look real don’t they.
Next thing I wanted to mention was in regards to the Moody tinting which Katey covered well but I want to take it a little further because it is one of the biggies of why I love the Bare line. If you click on that control freak as Katey shows you can then click on the direct input and put your skin RGB numbers directly in to assure a perfect match. There are several ways to get your RGB numbers for your skin, my perfered method is using the free program Colorpic and you just mouse over the area and the numbers are shown right there. I have a notecard with my favorite skins RGB numbers for quick reference when I need that. I find the method under advanced method hasn’t been as accurate for me, maybe it’s me but I really do prefer putting in these numbers instead of clicking arrows up and down or whatever to find the right color. I wish more designers would allow this method along with whatever other method is in their huds.
The last thing I want to say is if you are not using the WL presets by now, PLEASE come out from under whatever it is you have been hiding under and get them. There are several places to get them from, Redgrave, Caliah, Ana or just google WL Presets, you will find them. They make you look better, they make me look better to you, and you wont have to look at mismatched feet to skin anymore. Also, big bonus, you will not need to wear those face lights anymore! NOBODY needs a facelight anymore, unless you are doing photography and want certain light effects or something. Otherwise, face lights are so out of style now, get rid of them, WL presets are the new facelight. I don’t even know why they are still packaged with items from designers anymore, I am sure there is a good reason but I don’t know what it is.
That is it, I am done. Katey, thank you for the awesome post girl, you did a really great job on that. I am off to go get some other shoes Casja just plurked about now! Bye for now *waves*
