With the holiday weekend, I haven't had as much time to work on this as I'd hoped. But I did make amazing progress, I think!
Starting avatar for Raylee:
After finding hair, clothes, shoes and a skin that were vast improvements over the original, here's what I ended up with tonight:
Skin: Void "Dust" Caramel
Jeans: G&N Shelley
Top: Void "Smartass" overtank
Boots: Cupcake Patchwork boots from Lassitude & Ennui (by our own Jackal Ennui!)
AO: TuTy's Elite Sexy Female AO
Hair: 0 Style Belinda (Raven)
Shape: My own
I also picked up the LAP free AO for newbs under 30 days old. Neither that one nor the TuTy's AO had walks I really cared for but it beats the shambling zombie walk.
Work in progress - I still want to find a different skin and maybe some cute dresses.
All 100% free!
