Oh My Feature!

I put up a poll on Girlsense, to ask the users what is the ONE feature they would want to see on Girlsense first??

I must confess that I want ALL of that! LOL but realistically, if Girlsense could only do one or even two if we're nice, which ones would I want? Well I desperately want to be able to price fashions for a specific user. There are girls from around the WORLD and it's sometimes near impossible to price something and hope that others don't buy it first =D....having said that, I think I would appreciate a Save for Later feature first and a clone tool second. Sometimes it takes a very very very long time for me to make something, and being able to save and come back, would make it all the more sweeter! Also the clone tool!! Sometimes you need to move a deco that you have already placed, well now you have lost your shape, your rotation, your color, everything on that deco style and now you have to try and replicate it! FRUSTRATING to say the least! xD

Girlsense is constantly updating and all the new and past stuff we have is just GREAT! I can't tell you how much I love the new FDS compared...the possibilites are endless if you let them be! ;o) But wouldn't these features be the icing? I think so!

On a side note, there is one other feature that I left off the poll as I thought these above were more important. Girlsense introduced the Outfits feature! BRILLIANT! Just one more creative outlet, but how about if we could PRICE that outfit as ONE. In other words, I make an outfit, (dress, shoes, purse, hair, etc.) and I wanna price the whole group for 500 gcents....then a buyer can come along and get the outfit as one! :D It's so sad to see a beautifully created outfit split up between buyers! :( Pricing OUTFITS, would fix this, but so would being able to price for a specific user! ;o) (hint hint Girlsense)

So tell me what you think? Let's vote and let Girlsense know what we think! After all we are the ones that play, right? :D

How'd you make that HAIR?!?

LOL I get this question A LOT, so I thought I would work up some screen shots and post them here. Hope it helps some of y'all out!

First take a dress or skirt (any will do as long as it covers the head with some to spare so you can cut away a shape. I usually cut out the face and bangs first (above), cuz it's easier for me, but you can start however you like. Then cut the basic shape of the hairstyle you want (below)

After you have the shape you want, carefully cut away all the dress/skirt so that all you are left with is the shape of your hairstyle! (below)

Now you can just select and delete the opacity cut and change the color as you like. The paint and stamp decos are used for textures and shading (below). Use the filters menu as well. The stencil and 3-D filters are GREAT for making hair textures. It takes practice, practice practice. Try different color combos, opacity levels and filters to experiment and see what YOU like! But these are the basics! =D
