So last night, with grouchy meh on my mind, I decided to do a bit of browsing around to see if anything people had photos of reminded me of things I wanted to take photos of. And as luck would have it, Paradox Messmer’s photo of him in a band jacket at the Graumann’s Theater build from the Event: Hollywood reminded me that I’d kind of wanted to investigate the jacket from Strip’d that he was wearing. Were there other colors than stop-sign red? Would I want to wear them?
The answer is, obviously, yes.
So let’s look a little closer at this puppy. First things first; the blue T-shirt comes with the jacket, and is tintable, so you can use that to help co-ordinate a look with say, the blue-and-green tartan pants you are wearing.
Here’s the front again, a bit closer up, so you can look at the detail work on the frogs. While they’re not sculpts / mesh and are simply textures on the mesh, I still think Valentine Rexen has done a nice job with them!
Another nice thing that I didn’t realize at first was that if I can tint the t-shirt ‘face’ of the mesh, I can also render its transparency separately from other faces. The jacket even comes with an alpha for wearing the jacket with the T-shirt set to full transparency!
Strip’d don’t have an inworld shop at present, but that’s OK, because you can still find them on Marketplace!
