Get More Than SL's Best Mesh Manicures at Slink (NWN Readers' Choice, Top SL Brand)
Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style
- Brand name: Slink
- [SL Marketplace]
- Estimated average item price: L$600
- Brand owner: Siddean Munro
Among the most glamorous residents of SL, Slink is something of a household name. Siddean Munro made a big splash during the SL designing boom brought on by the advent of the sculpted prim, and she built Slink's brand recognition on towering heels, chunky platforms, and perfectly sculpted toes. Even though the foundation of Slink is fabulously fashionable footwear, Siddean's never been shy about experimenting with hairstyles, clothing, and beyond. My favourite releases from Slink are usually their avatar body part replacements, for example; I wrote about their mesh hands in October and I've used them quite a lot since then, and before that their mesh eyelids were a hot topic among shutterbugs and bloggers alike.
If you like Slink's style you should also check out One Bad Pixel, a collaboration between Siddean and sachi Vixen (of Adam n Eve) that focuses on clothing to pair with your slinky Slink shoes and avatar add-ons.
