I did a custom outfit that was my take on the masquerade costume from Phantom of the Opera (I was sent a couple of pictures and tried to make it similar whilst not wanting to replicate it - not that one could in SL anyway).
I got a nice IM this morning:
"Just a note to say thank you so VERY much for the red masquerade Phantom outfit. It is absolutely amazing. Your work and your talent are second to none. Thank you ever so much! -B"
They were nice customers. I like working on little projects as long as it's something that interests me. Obviously one couldn't hire me in real life for what I ask in SL, but I like having these projects so it's not like I get nothing out of it except a few dollars. For some reason this didn't take me terribly long, and for me solving little graphics problems is like scratching an itchy spot. I did encounter something odd, which is that the prim boots are not selectable when worn, so I can't edit them. I had to make them approximately the right size and then put them on. I don't get that t all. Attachments are editable. Why can't I edit these?

I just keep trying with shoes. It seems that it is hard to differentiate between the avatar and the prims he/she is wearing. One strategy is to zoom way way in, but it is not foolproof.
