Happy Saturday everyone! It’s day 5 of ASU’s 30 days of Halloween.
The constant stream of events, hunts, and designer showcases keeps us so focused on grid trotting that we often overlook great freebies Linden Labs built into our inventory. There are over 40 complete avatars built into Second Life.
Think of the Linden supplied avatars as an avatar salvage yard. Focus on the avatar’s parts: hair, eyes, clothing, attachments, and then pick the bits that interest you for use on your own avatar.
Today we’ve remade the Linden’s Petrol Sue into something mesh body and head wearers can use. The inspiration for this look is LF’s Halloween Skin gift at the BeYou2Ful Event. It’s boxed with appliers for Genesis Lab, Maitreya, Catwa Heads, Slink, and Omega systems.
This is what the skin looks like applied to a Maitreya body and a Lelutka Cate head. We were able to create this look by using the original Petrol Sue shape plus one modification. The leg muscles needed to be reduced to fit the thigh holster. You’ll also need to choose a hairbase to go with the Petrol Sue hair since it’s a mohawk. The dark hairbase from our mesh head fit well with this look.
The skin has such delicious cuts and gashes it seemed a shame to cover them with the Petrol Sue boots, so team ASU decided to make our October gift a pair of boots. They’re grungy, blood spattered, and perfect for this outfit. Team ASU added a gun and knife to the October gift box to fill those empty holsters.
Classic avatars aren’t entirely left out of today’s outfit. They can always wear the original unmodified Petrol Sue avatar pictured on the left. Or, they can wear the skin over their existing shape as our classic model Gabby has done on the right. Gabby even found a free tintable hairbase in the marketplace just in case you want to change up the original look.
