HI Appeal Zhang Skin
Here is the skin I was wearing in my previous post. It is Zhang from H. I. Appeal which I had never heard of before. Still, it appears to be a Legitimate Business, with many skins in various tones of ethnicity. The skin was 700L each, if you’re wondering.
I was a bit unsure about the big drawn-on eyelashes, but they haven’t bothered me like I thought they might. Shape alteration for this skin was in the form of embiggening the lips slightly. I am a wee bit unsure about the heaviness of the shading on the torso, but it’s not a dealbreaker for me. I think it’s a hybrid, though I am not very good at spotting such things. Certainly parts of it were once photographs, but I don’t find the overall results too Uncanny Valley.
Mostly I wear skins that were made specifically Asian rather than just a tone of a skin line, so it was nice to find the demos for this one while I was browing XStreet. As you can imagine it means I don’t buy as much skin as I otherwise might, due to looking for a niche. Is this the case with darker skins as well? I really don’t know.
Hair is from Truth, lovely undies from artilleri. I love artilleri undies because they actually cover your bits. If you want sensible underwear you should totally go to artilleri.
