I've been waiting for bleeding stumps and was happy to see such pose in Antipathy. Body mods have gone a long way. They're very nice but they limit how many items I can use in the part of the body where it is used (except for most skins). I'm not a huge fan of them, especially tiny leg mods but the others look really good.
I have a love/hate relationship with skins and mods. I feel like gaia should make more skins out there. An all-skins/body mod RIG would be a dream come true honestly.
I think with skins they're really a hit or miss these days. Those halloween skin potions were alright, but not worth the cost and also they weren't that original nor well made. Making a shop update with more skins would be amazing.
But in the way of mods, I think they're always geared so heavily toward one gender or the other. The only gender-neutral ones are the Ringmaster legs I think. It's also annoying that you can't wear skirts with some, or coats with most arm mods.
I really love mods. I'm even wearing arm mods right now.
Legs mods are awesome too like Nice style for work, vampire sound, heart x mind..it just gives the avatar a sort of 3Dish feel to it to have it floating in mid air for example.
My favorite skin is the imaginary skin in imaginary friend. Is pure white and has a really crisp feel to it. Id probably use white body dye but its not an option at the moment. Still, I like the see-through quality of the imaginary skin though.3nodding
As a side note, I don't know if anyone else feels the same but I sorta wish they made more chair items and more seated leg poses to go with them. There's only a couple that really look alright so far, one is the Djinn Baharat and other is the Blind Oracle, id like to see a gaming chair or a fine wooden chair or maybe even a War-room chair and reclining chair. More items with seated poses are on my list of wishes.
★ I wasn't around much when Grombies roamed about...
But usually, the only skins I use are the Black Body Dye and skins from Yemaya's Pearl.
(Though, is the body dye considered skin? I've never changed my avi's species [e.g. gimpi, centaur, etc.] if that's what you meant.)
I've started to love leg mods ever since I changed to the male base. Long legged mods, yessss. <3
Freakin' default male body is so chunky. I actually wish there was a mod to make the shoulders smaller. LOL. ★
