Look at you Lucky People.. You get to see me naked today. Skins are a constantly talked about thing in SL. Everyone has their favorite skin makers. Everyone debates the good and bad points of each designer. Everyone bitches about the price, especially when they are a newbie. Back some time ago, before I was a Big Time Blogger *HA!* I found a freebie skin at NCI by Charlotte Hausdorff. It was wonderfully detailed, if lacking nipples and a naughty hoo hoo. I had to see more.
On to the image above, shall we? First on the left is ME! Yeah.. I wasn't about to ask my models to pose naked for me. I'm just that kinda girl. I'm wearing.. NOTHING but CHF's Daisy skin. IN this pack for an AMAZING $99L comes the skin, a shape and some wonderful eyes. Let's talk about the skin shall we? I love Charlotte's collarbone detailing. She does SO well with the little shading and all that we definitely need in our colarbone area. See the shading around the breasts? Perfect as are the nipples. She has some great nipples. I've seen some skins that look like they cut and pasted them off a National Geographic magazine. Just dinner plate huge and off color, but these are the right size and they even keep their detail on my huge boobs. The makeup is light and crisp, without any of the ashy "face highlighting" that you see on other skin. And the naughty hoo hoo? Realistic, if a little dark. Just a little "landing strip" as they call it. Can I say even her EARS are pretty good? All this for only $99L. Of course it is just ONE makeup and skin tone. But if you are looking for a good first skin. This works UNLESS you...
Buy the skin on me in the middle. This was my skin for the longest time. The Sweet Female Newbie Skin. It's only $199 and contains 2 makeups and 9 skin tones. I LOVE this skin. the makeup is neutral enough to work with a bunch of outfits. From ballroom to bedroom to boardroom. The detailing is wonderful! A detailed BUT discreet naughty hoo hoo, preportioned nipples, and Charlotte's fab collarbone shading. I got alot of compliments when I wore this skin.
On sale right now at Charlotte's is the Sweet Joellyn skin. This is her big skin line. There are 23 different makeups and 5 different skin tones. The sale right now is $799 for a three pack of makeups in one skin tone. I'm wearing the demo above. I have to tell you. I love the way it looked on my shape. I'm VERY tempted to buy all the makeups. Oh! Each makeup is available individually on the other wall of the store, each for $499. Which makes the 3 pack, a GREAT deal.
Lastly, on the right is a tiny bit of Charlotte's other work, lingerie. It must be the month. I don't think I've been seen in my undies this much since I was a kid! This is her Sweet Dream set. With stockings, panties, garter, adorable, wanna wear it all the time bodice and a bra you can wear instead of the bodice. But why would you want to? Look at the sheer lace! The cute little bows on the garters! And the lacing on the bodice! I love! I love! The seams are perfect up and down this item. The little bows are even shaded to look 3D. I guess since everyone's seen me naked, it's ok to run around in this til V-day huh? Maybe now I'll catch a man!
Overall, Charlotte pays alot of attention to detail. That's gonna make her business. Skins are all about details and the amount of details on her skins are AMAZING for the price. These look like skins you would pay alot more for. But you don't have to anymore. Charlotte, keep up the good work. Also, this lovely woman has a lucky chair in her garden along with a money tree.. She's generous too! She also has a small selection of shoes and some men's clothing.
