Step Back in Time With Historic Prefabs & More from The Looking Glass (NWN Readers' Choice, Top SL Brand)


Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style

There's a lot going on at The Looking Glass, so it's hard to slap a label on this store and be done with it. There are clothes and accessories and home decor items, most of which will appeal to anyone with an appreciation for a more turn-of-the-last-century aesthetic, but in my opinion it's the prefabs at The Looking Glass that shine the brightest. I can think of plenty of modern fashionistas who would still go gaga over Marcus Inkpen's Parisian rowhouse for example, and the enchanting little moon home pictured above seems like a must-have for the petite fairy avs among us.

It's a real pain in the ass to find nicely made prefab homes in SL if you like something a little more unique than the ultra-modern or ultra-suburban mini-mansions that the prefab market is saturated with, so if you're looking for a home that really stands out you should absolutely consider Marcus'. Even though much of his work is pre-mesh, it remains undeniably well done!

We're blogging the top 20 brands in our Readers' Choice list. Stay tuned for the rest soon!

No one had anything to say yet? :)

The models at this place are amazing - albeit primmy. I think you can reduce a lot of the prim cost if you're willing to edit away for a while and find what parts can be set to convex hull without messing up the physics.

I've yet to buy from here though - haven't yet found the right spot to put one of these pieces.
