Disclaimer: This post is my personal opinion – you’re entitled to disagree, but I’m just as much entitled to have it.
So as some of you might know, one of my pet peeves is this “trend” where clothes creators continuously drop support for older bodies to find the time and resources to create for the latest and newest body on the market.
My personal take on this is simple enough: if you don’t offer your outfits for a body I have and like, you ain’t getting any of my money – and that is YOUR loss, not mine.
Anyway – so there seems to be another “new kid on the block”, with more and more shops adding it to their portfolio of supported bodies (and dropping bodies from that list, in some cases).
The other day I came across a demo giver for that body, and I thought “to hell with it, let’s find out what’s so great about that new thing.”
To put it short: I almost lost it. I put that body on with my default shape, which is pretty much a good old “Standard size XS”, but a bit taller, and of course the head settings have been adapted to work with catwa lona; the resulting view was not enjoyable.
Without further ado, here are pictures of the three bodies that I have and use, and of the two versions of that new body on the market, in alphabetical order of the name (no ranking implied):
I think I have to explicitely say it again: All these pictures have been taken using the same shape, and that shape is a Standard Size XS.
Now how can I express my thoughts about that new body in a nice way… I guess it kind of makes me think of art styles. But while it’s obvious that the creator aimed for what is generally known as “rubenesque”, the result looks more like a collaboration between Keith Haring, Pablo Picasso, and Roy Lichtenstein – and that’s not a good result.
