As we all know I'm not yer basic girly girl. I was raised in rl with tons of horses and dogs and sport and building big things, etc. and that suited me fine. In SL I am one of the very few people left without prim hair (too laggy and who cares, anyway) and I never buy clothing (except once when Ida wanted us to all wear matching cheerleader outfits for a vaudeville act). I like making things, and what I have made mostly is men's clothing (mostly warrior duds), tents, oddities like googie signs and roadside attractions, books, theatre, and things like that.*
Dalien Talbot made this fun little tool called Vint's Prim Skirtmaker (I think that's correct) that is very easy to use and a lot of fun to goof around with, even if you are like me and don't care about skirts in general. I made feather skirts (I used feather textures I made long ago which weren't optimised for the task but still look cool to me) and one with a texture I made with nothing in mind (just for its own sake) that REALLY isn't suitable in format but still looks interesting.
Anyway, what I'm saying is - if you haven't tried it out, you might find it's fun. Go HERE and get a copy. Thanks, Dalien.
*I liked fencing in rl, too, although I didn't do a huge amount of it. Recently, through setting up events, I realised I think of Combat Cards as sport, but Doc thinks of it as a game. I tried hard to think of it as a game, which lasted several minutes. Following that I went back to thinking of it as sport (phew, that was exhausting).
