For the last couple of products I’ve released I’ve also released an Antique Leather texture pack. I think these have looked pretty good on the mesh boots, gloves and dress, so I had to ask the obvious question: What about a matching catsuit?
The antique leather effect is a procedural texture I’ve put together in Lightwave, so it was pretty easy to bake off a set of textures for the avatar mesh. Flat on my screen I thought they looked OK too.
How did they look uploaded to SL and worn as a catsuit?
Well, like a dreadful skin disease.
I think I precisely hit the desirability valley in between “Desirable wearable” and “Grotesque enough for horror costumes”. I estimate the market size here as zero.
