4 Hot Reasons To Stand Up To Your Boots

The Digital Doll On Flickr! The Digital Doll On Flickr!

Nobody is more excited than I am that the shoe makers of Second Life have come out swinging in 2010 like they mean business.  And from what we’ve seen so far, it’s clear that the business of the day is the almighty boot.  Bax Coen recently threw down the gauntlet to anyone daring to make virtual silver or gold with the latest release of the Bax Prestige Boots.  And I don’t think I’ve ever seen leather like what’s coming out of SLink, certainly not in some of the metallic shades included in the most recent SLink release, the Quinn Boots.  So precious metals are in and you’ve got to find something to go with those fabulous boots that had your name written all over them.  The only problem is that when it comes to Second Life, and clothing in particular, nothing is more commonly botched than silver, gold, and all the other metals we desperately need to have on hand to stand up to these bold accessories.  So what’s a doll to do?

Well I’ve been all over the grid, searching high and low, for some clothing that would stand up to the textures on my boots.  At long last, I found them at an old favorite, Son!a.  Since I last went to Son!a ages ago, her store has grown exponentially, in tandem with her ability to make hot little ensembles begging to grace your doll.  Son!a earned a spot here and I show her clothes shamelessly because she is the only seamstress in Second Life that provides a variety of ensembles that can easily stand up to the metals of Bax, SLink, and MANDALA.  Her textures are fabulous, the outfits are everything they should be and more, and she is in a league of her own when it comes to meeting the powerhouse cobblers and jewelers of the grid, who have single-handedly made precious metals the new black.  Go to Son!a!  And while you’re there, make sure you don’t miss this hot, new release called “Rapture,” because it might just come to pass when they see you coming in this outfit.

I'm so glad you made this post - texture quality matching is a big pain in the ass. This definitely helped me! ^5

Ooooo great post Shy. I love those boots in your pics. No unsightly edges...just pure class.

I'm so glad you gave Son!a's a shout because she really has been a stunning contributor to SL fashion for a long time. No one does cold days (i.e. SL nipples) like Son!a does. Her attention to detail certainly gives her an edge.

Love your blog a log Shy.

Glad I could be helpful!

@ Chalice - Thanks so much. I totally agree about Son!a, who doesn't get near the amount of publicity her work warrants. (And still LOLing @ "cold days.")
