Three New Shapes
One of my beliefs is that there is a lack of variety for asian avatars. And today's batch of additions is mean to continue changing that. If you look at the range of imagination today in places around Asia, you will realize fast that it isn't your grandfather's orient.
All of these shapes capture a different kind of face and body combination. As with the others they are full modify, so that you can tweak to get you from a solid base. There are 6 variations for each - including the skirt variations. 250L per collection.
Taibei is a fast ride on a hot machine. She has a gymnastic figure, a strong front on face, and a certain bearing about her. Taibei the rl city has girls who are self-condifent, fast, forward looking and stylish, and this shape is the same way.
Yokohama is the beach babe shape. She is very very very very round. I know the perception in people's minds is of "flat chested oriental girl," but that was as much a product of diet as anything. If you look at how things are today, yes, there are many thin girls of asian extraction, but there are plenty of other shapes and sizes. I wanted a shape here that was natural in her own figure and face.
In mainland China, Shanghai girls are presented as the hot, hotter, hottest most beautiful and sensual girls there are. It's almost a cliche. So when doing a shape that was supposed to be willowy and graceful, and the smoldering allure of memory... What other city and was there to use?
The really important project though, to my mind, is getting good male shapes. So even though I in fact have more asian women's shapes in inventory which I could relatively easily package up and make available, I'm going to focus on doing similar packages for men. But it is going to take some time, because several of the things that are out there for free for women, don't have equivalent quality for men available. I'm starting with a good free tuxedo in black.
As before, everything you need to look like the poster is in the box: all of them come with prim hair, the classic "sharn" skin, and lingerie. Taibei comes with a necklace and Yokohama with prim heels.
Why pay more and get less? I've also updated the hair freebie downstairs, with the siempre hair style, in several colors.
