Seven* more new items today (did you notice a 7th one sneak in later in the day yesterday too?). I’m excited about the Monastery add-on and the grapes, but all of them look good.
Fan for Mei Lin 6 is especially interesting, as at last we get an older Asian female character. She was lovingly-created by ForbiddenWhispers to show a realistically aged woman. You get two body shapes and some makeup options with her too. AprilYSH’s fantasy Asian hair, Thian Hair, also gets a makeover today with a ShoXoloR pack by Shox-Design. It has 100 colours that can be mixed and matched with each other and with the different tie and bun-wrap fabrics. The vendor also gives the Ravynne dress 5 unique looks with the Ravynne Textures.
The men haven’t been forgotten. Sebastian HD now has Octane Shaders, thanks to RedSpec SSS. I don’t use Octane but I must say the promo images are impressive and if you strive for realism this will be worth considering.
Predatron’s Monastery was a must-have environment for me. Today he makes this lovely Mediterranean-looking set even more versatile. Grey Monastery is a new texture set (you’ll find some new props in there too, and a new sky dome with matching light preset) which will give this sunny Monastery an overcast look and a grey stone texture more typical of Northern Europe. The Monastery Cemetery extends the Monastery with a graveyard and two new sky domes and light sets. Mist, plants and props are all included and it can be used independently of the Monastery too if you prefer.
All my Mediterranean environments have been missing were some good vines. With Grapevines, -esha- neatly solves the problem. These lovely vines are laden with ready-to-pick bunches of grapes, and you get individual grape bunches too. There are several texture options for different grape varieties, but they all look sweet and juicy!
Along with these new releases, the Thankful for Freebies Promotion continues and there are some nice choices in the Day 3 selection.
There’s also a new selection of the 12 older freebies today. Foolishly I didn’t pick up all of them last week. No idea what I thought I was waiting for. (Don’t worry, I did snap up the must-haves such as Manly Men for M5 and Gabi for V5). There’s no harm in getting textures for clothing you don’t own, who knows you might pick it up in Fast Grab one day or get it as a future freebie? So do as I say, not as I do, and add anything that looks interesting to your product library while it’s available!
*Update: once again there were late entries to the New Releases page, this time quite a few — and all except the Monastery Bundle (an obvious omission earlier) for Mei Lin. I’ve added them below.
