A long nap and some lunch and I'm feeling better. I'm usually really good about keeping my blood sugar steady, but I hadn't really eaten since Monday. That's bound to make anyone feel crazy. :)
If you haven't been over to check out the results of Tymmerie's big SLove surveys, go over and check it out now. Be sure you read her comments too, because her boyfriend left a really great one.
I spent some time today going to a few stores to check out demo skins. Not that I'm really in the market for a new skin, but it never hurts to look. Plus it's helpful when you're familiar with the "big name" skins so you can detect rip offs. I hit up Naughty Island, Nevermore Studios, The Body Politik, RaC, and X2.
First off, how does ANYONE shop at Naughty? The lag is so horrific, I grabbed demos in between screen freezes and went home to try them on. My FPS at Naughty was about 5. At home, it was 30. I liked the Alina skins, but not the Haley ones. The Haley ones made my eyes look kind of dirty. The Paris skins are nice too, but not my style.
I like the skins at Nevermore except for the lips. They have a new line of skins coming out on March 1st, so I'm going to definitely revisit.
[YES! The new release candidate viewer has the Release Keys back in the old spot! Hooray!!]
The Body Politik skins are pretty, but the eyebrows bother me for some reason. Like I want to go in with an eyebrow pencil and fill them in a bit.
The X2 skins, while very well done, aren't fit for my shape at all, especially on the butt. The RaC skins are soft and lovely, but don't fit my face. One of them I tried on made me look terribly worried.
If I was going to go out and purchase a skin, I'd probably end up back at Cake. After wearing a demo skin from there for my event the other night, I just really really liked it.
Oh, but please take this little bit of advice. If you feel it necessary to strip down naked to try on a skin, PLEASE do it at your home or fly up in the sky or go to one of the dressing rooms that are around. Don't just get naked in the middle of the store. Unless there's absolutely no one around. :)
