Kirsten Corleone Shows Second Life's New Materials in (Mildly NSFW) Action

Janine "Iris Ophelia" Hawkins' ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style

Kirsten Corleone recently posted a video (above) of her experimenting with light and settings while modelling the Materials-enabled Naisha bikini from Zaara, which features glittering specular sequin detail. Like most us, Kirsten's still trying to figure out how to make the most of materials. Finding the best sky settings to showcase them sounds simple enough, but there are dozens of points that need to be adjusted, and right now most of is just haven't quite found that golden configuration.

And if you're a guy and bikini's aren't your preferred personal choice for swimwear, don't forget Strawberry Singh's demonstration of FATEwear's Materials-enabled swim trunks:

If you've been a little bit underwhelmed by Materials so far, bear in mind that both designers and consumers are still just figuring them out. As more and more people experiment with Materials, the "best" methods on both ends will come to light (pun intended) and even more amazing products, pics, and videos will come out of it. Of course I've been trying it out myself as well, so if I stumble on something outstanding I'll be sure to share!
