Starting An Alt, Need Serious Female Help

I am starting to plan a shemale alt. I have been male for my entire SL life. I need some help with the following points, please.

I should note I want top or extremely high quality for any physical items described below.

* I want an Asian skin. And it would have to be female since I want to be shemale. Any suggestions on amazing female Asian skins?

* I will need somebody to build me a shape based off someone in RL. I am absolutely horrible with shapes, always have been and always will be. I didn't know if you knew anyone who would do a fantastic job for pay or no pay, I know some people do it just because they enjoy doing it.

* What is the preferred mesh body? Or is there something better than mesh? I will have breasts and a penis, penis should not matter. Breasts obviously do.

* I need hair shop recommendations. Fashion shops too, I like more classy outfits, not so much dress down. Shoes too, I like heels.

If you ask questions I will help narrow down any suggestions if I'm being too broad.

off the top of my head,
i suggest The sugar Garden for cute skins if you want to go to for Asian Kawaii look. If you want something more subtle, i'd have to logg in and check landmarks.

The Sugar Garden Take a look though thier blog...



from my point of few, unlike femboy community which seem to mod Maitreya mesh bodys.. shemales i've seen don't seem to fall under any particular brand and come in all forms and sizes. depending on the person your basing it from will most likely determine which brand/recommendations is probably good for you.

This is the skin look I am going for. I am not sure what kawaii means.

Sounds like you basically want an asian female AV. Just add the penis when undressed.

ps: unless you are using this AV as an escort or sex worker, I'd drop the shemale description.

Pink Fuel might have a skin that would work for you.

with shapes - you can find free modifiable shapes and tweak them --that's what I do all the time. Or I'll find two and combine them , it takes ab it of work copying out the slider nubmers and getting it to work but it's not so bad.

As for mesh bodies- it depends on the look you want. I'd demo all the mesh bodies and figure out what works best. And while you are demoing look for clothes and see if the shops make the clothes for all mesh bodies or for specific ones. For example Erratic and Dead Dollz make mostly (or exclusively) Maitreya fit.

iheartsl.com is a fashion feed with a lot of different blogs represented it's a good way to scroll through and find things that you might like. Fifty linden Fridays is a shopping event each friday where different designers have an item (or two) out for 50l. I get a lot of hair and shoes that way.

Places for hair: Truth, Exile, Tableau Vivant, Wasabi Pills, Lamb.
Clothes- I tend to wear casual stuff so I 'm blanking -- maitreya , Richielli, Baiastice, ... places like that.
Shoes- Reign, Essenz, Phedora, Empire, KC couture, Fri.day,


Seraphimsl.com lists fashion events with pictures so that's another way to browse through and find looks and designers you might like.

Also flickr is a good resource to get ideas.

For shapes, this will get quite far:



The head size is not set in stone, but those are the ranges one will generally want to stick close to.

This next one is especially useful:



This will get you set better than more than half the avatars on the grid.

I'll second the vote for Pink Fuel's Kumi skin. I've been wearing it for years now and it even comes with "monolid" options if you want to emphasize an Asian look.

I kind of feel like there is a large gamut covered by the term "shemale" here, are you looking at something that's "looks like a dude in drag", "porn star with a penis", or something more along the lines of "trap"?

About the mesh body: it is a fair amount of money to spend, but some things you'll find are (1) the body looks amazingly better, especially breasts and butt, (2) the clothes you can wear are superior even to good mesh clothing, (3) the shoes are better. If you get a Maitreya body, you'll find it easier to get shoes and clothes than for other bodies.

One thing about the skins, though: you'll have to find a skin that has a corresponding applier for your mesh body. There are some pretty ass-kicking skins that don't, unfortunately.

It takes time, but you ought to try demos, even for the applier, because I found that a lot (yes, a LOT) of the mesh-body skins have a black line under the breasts. At least that's how it looks on my computer. And some have a vagina that's really just a crack that runs through the whole groin valley, from back to front. AND you should be sure that you can live with the way the areola/nipple looks.

In my opinion, the most practical body is the Maitreya, and the best skins for it are from Esode, LAQ, Pink Fuel, and AIMI. Esode includes the applier with the skin, even in the group gift, which is pretty nice. You can get LAQ's group gift, or Pink Fuel's noobie gift, and then you only need to buy the mesh-body applier.

About shapes: I'm very opinionated on this, and my advice is that you should always judge a shape by its face. If the face sucks, it doesn't matter how great the body is. The body is easier to fix than the face. AND, if you like a shape, you should try it with every skin you own so you can find the best match. If you like a skin, you should try it with every shape you own, for the same reason.

Dr. Life may have some shapes that could work for you.

Venus, definitely get mesh body demos. Maitreya Lara can be shaped into just about anything. Check out Slink Hourglass if you are looking for a more voluptuous starting point. Both those bodies have unending 3rd party skin and clothing support. Maitreya comes with feet and hands, for the slink you'll have to purchase those separately. If you go with the Slink, don't buy the Slink fixed pose hands, bento has made those obsolescent - go with the Vista bento hands instead (Maitreya and Slink have yet to release bento hands).

As far as skins, try to find something that doesn't have the female labia and other parts painted on too prominently, though your choice of penis and scrotum may go a ways in covering it.

I haven't used it but the Utilizator Kemono mesh body may be what you want, especially if you wanted an anime head. I think it works with a regular system head as well though most of the clothing etc is centered around Anime.

Not up in arms, but I feel like you could have just said female since what you're looking for is a female body/skin/etc. That you'll be wearing a peen with it really isn't relevant, lol.

I second Pink Fuel, she makes some gorgeous skins and I think a few of them have the monolid option.

I'm very happy with my recently purchased Maitreya body.
I wear a lot of Baby Monkey shoes. This is because:
  • Pixie is a doll
  • She gives great value for your money
  • She makes nice shoes.
For classic styles, Lindy also does some nice things, and they are reasonably priced.

I was a Truth girl for years for hair, but these days it is all Amacci.

I like it. I would maybe say a Tutys skin would be better than Pink Fuel, because the woman you have as reference, is looking older and sophisticated.

Kawaii is very young, or very young looking. Pigtails, huge eyes, schoolgirl uniforms, all cloyingly sweet. Well, it can be fine as a look once in a while...

I would say Maitreya body too, you can demo it and adjust the demo freely, also demo a Tuty skin with it. Only the newer skins have Maitreya appliers, that will limit you a bit.

Why Maitreya? Simply because they are the biggest and so it is easy to find fitted mesh clothing made just for it.

And yes, "shemale" is a very special word in SL terms. I think of a huge female avatar, built like a bodybuilder, sixpack, very tan, oily skin, huge breasts, wearing a black stringbikini, preferably in some shiny latex-looking material, with a bulge as big as a their head. Or bigger. Complete the look with strong makeup applied with a showel and big, big hair.

At least that was the shemales that tried to hit on me in the times I went to adult places.
