Only 25 spacebux on SL Marketplace, other colours available at 99 spacebux. It is four sizes cos I never met anyone smaller than XS size, maaaaaay work with a mesh body but don’t hold me to that (I’ve been wearing on Maitreya Lara in the pix). ITS RED OKAY.
Other colours coming probably at some point.
I already had the clothing appliers pack for Slink Physique, and today I collected the Maitreya and Belleza ones. I have crafted the above undies (shown on Slink) to get started with hopefully doing some applier clothes. I shall also be doing the system layers I expect, because why not? It will (I expect) be quite fun to play with system stuff again. I mean I can make mesh clothing to a certain degree, and I can certainly colour in other ppls ones, but I still miss the way we used to make spaceclothes.
Anyways, Imma workin on this. It will give me something to do. Yay.

I don’t like gachas because I just want to buy the damn thing, I don’t want to spend 3x as much getting a load of stuff I didn’t want and then maaaaaaybe winning the thing I actually wanted. But then I suppose the *point* of gachas is to make you spend 3x as much to get the item. I realise this is deeply cynical but I never said I wasn’t, so shush.
I don’t like when the rare/ultra-rare item is something that completes a set to the point where there isn’t much point in having the other things without it. (Clothing gachas seem to be especially bad for this.)
It’s like bloody everything is gachas these days, which ties into the thing where a lot of shops seemingly never release anything that isn’t for an event. (Event exclusives – tha sort that will never be sold again in any form – annoy me as well, you may be surprised to hear.) You will notice that the popular colours/themes are the rares, so if you want something in black or pink or red you’re shit out of luck. Unless you buy it for some insane price after wandering a gacha-resale yardsale for about six hours.
I had a gacha machine for about five minutes once but it annoyed me even though it was mine. I didn’t want to make people hate me because they won another rainbow unicorn plushie rather than some prim cheese, you know?
Anyways, I semi-secretly think that some shops have gone (seemingly) gacha-only because it’s a licence to print money and it makes it worthwhile to make things that are unpopular — they will populate your gacha to make it harder to win The Thing You Actually Want. I mean I can’t blame them because money is pretty awesome but like sometimes I miss going to a shop and there’s been a mainstore update in the last fifteen years and I don’t have to gamble to get it.

The cleverly-named “Chav Shop” has an inworld 50% sale until whenever. Most of said stuff is likely to be retired and will only be available on the Marketplace. New things will be my own meshes, even though I said I wouldn’t do that because I hate weight-painting. But at least it won’t be the same things every other shop is selling, right?
I am working on having a decent number of things to replace the old things. Possibly I will end up listing them on the MP first to avoid having to do that all at once. But I dunno, we shall see.
At the moment I am mostly annoyed by upload fees. Grr!

Hobo Island is closing in SL and the new island is in Inworldz, so I will probably be going there more often from now on.

Yeah, I colour in templates now, colouring in templates is cool. There are a number of excuses, the one I like best is “every other bish is doing it, so why can’t I?” I like to pretend I add some value with my amazing art skillz, but mostly I like to put dirt on things. (The original is Meli Imako and actually quite pretty.) Mesh It had a sale on, so I have stocked up before they retire all them things. MOAR SPACECLOTHES YAYE.
Also it provides Chav with an extensive wardrobe textured to my specifications. Mostly I just colour things in that I want and then put them in the shop to try and recover expenses/for lols. The dirt stuff seems to be helpful to other people as well, so I feel moderately nice now. Ha ha.
I am thinking maybe I should not put words on the ads, as the words are mostly stupid. I just feel like I have to take the piss somehow, before anyone else does.

T-shirts err on the Marketplace somewhere, also I didn’t think to make a SLURL but somewhere in the Junkyard part of the Wastelands.
I like making things look old and broken, that goes back to me old hobo days. It is sort of harder than making things look nice, but way more fun. It feels like I am ruining people’s lovely template meshes, but they probably don’t mind. I wouldn’t mind. I would be pleased.

Still living in the Wastelands in SL, currently de-landing in OpenSim. OSGrid has been down since like August (?) with no idea of when it’s coming back.
I have been playing with mesh templates and colouring them in, which is way more fun than having to model and rig from scratch. Let someone else do all the efforts, yo.
