sorrow was their master, cackling with laughter

The Transylvania sim is celebrating its eighth year of operation this weekend, which is notable in itself, but I had a friend who fell head over heels in love with the outfit on the middle avatar below:

That's a woman named Willow, in the center, and it turns out she got that outfit (all mesh, by the way) from a store named Yasum.

(from the mesh album)

The Yasum "Babes" top comes in five colors for L$299 each. It comes with the neck/chin piece, the buckles on the chest, and the long sleeves that cover the hands.

The "Drop Down Baggies" mesh pants are in the same five colors for L$299 each.

The platform combat boots (also mesh) come in two matching colors (mustard and black), and two complimentary colors (grass and baby blue; I'm showing grass here). Or, you can just buy the whole outfit package, which includes the top, the pants, and the boots for L$699 per color--that saves you L$198 over buying them individually.

(from the mesh album)

There are some clipping issues with the hands, due to the length of the sleeve, but other than the wisps of the Irisia hair disappearing into my shoulders, I had no other problems. The alpha for this is brilliantly invisible, and while there is some alpha fade-out, you REALLY have to get arcane with the camera to see it, because there's just a little glimpse on the INside of the neck/chin piece. If you're not looking for it, trust me, you're NEVER going to see it.

I ran through several positions looking for errors or glitching, and as I said--save for the fingers protruding through the long sleeves on occasion (and nothing's going to stop that but changing animations, it just can't be done), there are zero glitches with this one. I'm wearing size L, but with adjustment of my base shape, I could likely get into a size M and probably wear it just as well.

(Wearing: Mortain Lumpen's Fae eyes in "Dreamy" [bought in 2008, likely no longer available], Sin Skin's "Etheria" Fae skin in Chalk [no idea if they're still available, maybe on the Marketplace?], the Pixelmen buckle and chain pants [no longer available], and La Viere's "Irisia" hair in Raspberry [Hair Fair gift this year, but the store itself is well worth checking out]. And the Windlight's on Bryn Oh's "BOX MetaLES".)
