Hello Titty hunt: part I!

We start off with the first stop, of course. Which in this case was Patchwork Heart:

(from the fashion album; Patchwork Heart's offering to start off the Hello Titty hunt)

This is a mesh strapless dress, so there are the usual oddities that accompany wearing mesh. Barring that, though, and the fact that it's quite obviously photosourced, it's a lovely little (and I do mean, VERY little!) dress. I actually adore the realism of the details for it, it works well with the style of the dress itself.

Same dress, from the back. Just nicely detailed from all angles.

I'm wearing this with my new Lola's Tango implants, but it comes with implants for plain Lola's (as well as Lola's Push-Ups), Mused, BBusty, the Mused "MilkMade" line, VStrings, and Lush.

(from the fashion album; QE Designs' Suede corset dress in Cocoa from the Hello Titty hunt)

This is the Suede corset dress from QE Designs in Cocoa, and I have argh on this one. I actually really like the look--sure, it's showing off a ton of skin and cleavage, but it's slowly becoming ingrained in my avbrain that the busty set on SL are, on average, trying most to imitate Snooki (or maybe even Kim Kardashian). There is an overabundance of big hair, long curved dagger-nails, deeply tanned, occasionally oiled skin, and cleavage down to the knees. At least.

This minidress, though, it has nice little details (the buckles down the front, especially), and I even like the two-toned zebra striping. I'm not going to say this is conservative in any universe, but I wouldn't feel ashamed to be seen in it shopping.

From the back, it's simpler, but even with that, it's got lovely shadowing details. And from the sides, it lines up pretty well, too. This is a store I'm definitely going to return to in future.

So why the argh? Because of the miniskirt prim. The only good thing about it is it can be edited, which means the first thing I did was resize the hell out of it, and pretty much for these shots just tilted it on its axis. The only good thing about such a dysfunctional design detail? Miss Sygall's building this outfit as actually a micro-jumper; as in, the pants layer really is a short-short pair of pants, so in future, I can just dispense with the skirt prim entirely.

Okay, the third prize offering is...odd:

So, this one...I won't lie, I'm probably not keeping. First off, I realize it's a virtual world, but I call shenanigans on even mesh breasts staying in a crop top that small! And speaking of small, I fit into the XXS on the mesh jeans; so much for "standard" sizing.

It really doesn't get better from the back, plus even on my figure, which has never been the most bootylicious, there's clipping from this pose into the mesh. That having been said, though...

...I want to draw your attention to the one feature I do like, the one feature that got me to join the group: that shadowing. If you're not picking it out in the above shot, you're looking for the very, very thin dark line around the edge of the sleeves, and the edge of the crop top. This moves what is otherwise just a standard template recolor-and-repackage into something that looks like "real" clothing from a reasonable distance. If you understand the difference I'm making.

(from the fashion album; Pink Sugah's "Hello Sailor" outfit, navy blue variant)

Like this outfit, f'rinstance. This is the navy blue version of Pink Sugah's "Hello Sailor" playsuit, and it also has that dark-line detailing. It comes in the navy, as shown (with red and white details), also in a red (with blue and white details) and a white (with red and blue details). It's a fun, flirty, retro look, fits most general appliers (but targeted for Lola's Tangos), and is currently L$99 for the pack of three. (It also comes in a three-pack of lighter pastels.)

For the hunt gift, a generic applier is included, as well as a specific-to-Tango applier. I was wearing Tango for these shots.

(Style card: the skin is SHINE's Nina, in Pink/Pale/C2 [likely a free gift from the store last spring, based on the date of the skin]; eyes are Rue's Thaumaturge" eyes in Toxic Arsenic (no longer available, but DO check out her new eyes, because they're fab); hair is Exile's "Audra" hair in Roots/Drift [from this year's Hair Fair]; and the shoes [which you mostly don't see] are from Isis, they're from a hunt object currently in the store, and they're called "Tattered Fairy".)
