NanoGunk’s “fleshmelt” solution

One thing I’ve never liked about wearing system layer pants in SL is the ugliness that occurs on the area that’s between your avi’s ankle and the leg flare of the pants. As I’m sure most of you are already aware, the area takes on your avi’s skin texture, resulting in an unsightly and unnatural sort of “fleshmelt” as I once heard someone describe it.

NanoGunk offers an extremely simple and painless solution: their tintable pantleg socks and sleeve gloves. Witness it at work in the following pics:

The glove layer sleeves work in the same manner for your shirt and jacket layer items that have loose sleeves. Because tinting them is super easy, I’ve been able to use these babies with my colorful kimonos, and they’ve blended together without any problem or confusion.

These have become an indispensable part of my SL wardrobe; I use them so much that I simply keep them in a folder marked “!FAVORITES” for easy access. You can purchase the pantleg socks and sleeve gloves together as a set at NanoGunk.

P.s. If you’ve not yet heard the name Ryker Beck, then do yourself a favor and get acquainted with her via her blog and her flickr stream. The woman is a freakin’ genius with Photoshop, and her blog is chock full of goodness, including some of the most thorough reviews on skins you’ll ever come across, including her latest write-up on Eloh Eliot’s wonderful skins.

  1. Thought I’d just mention that Robin Sojourner (Robin Wood irl) came up with those a while ago and hers are free. They were first mentioned on Slnatalia’s blog and I’ve had mine almost since I started SL. Thought you might like to know!

  3. Ooh, thanks Delilah! Does she make them available in-world or show how to make them on her site? I’ve been to Robin’s website in the past and followed the tutorials on there regarding working with alpha and making t-shirts but don’t recall reading about these sleeves.
