These are wonderful resources. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some “free” textures are actually stolen - and you can’t know which are which. Some commercial stores sell textures found free at other locations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recommended : Never sell anything made with a texture from a freebies collection found in SL. </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Repeat with Other Garments, Until Satisfied
  25. 25. Make Outfit
  26. 26. About Making Outfits - 1 <ul><li>If you’ve never made an outfit before, make one basic backup that has the entire “you” - skin, eyes, hair, everything.

  27. 27. About Making Outfits - 2 <ul><li>If making additional outfits to supplement your wardrobe: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Check boxes only for those clothing / garment / accessories that are part of this specific outfit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not check boxes for body parts such as hair, skin, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Name outfit something unique and distinctive to ease finding it in your inventory </li></ul></ul>

Replace outfit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Add to outfit </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Replace will remove everything you are wearing now, and the look for something new from the folder. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Warning : You may end up bald, since it may remove your hair. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Add will not remove what you are wearing, and will only replace items that match, ie. Pants for pants. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Warning : You may end up wearing parts of two different outfits, mixed up. </li></ul></ul>
  29. 29. About Outfits - Inventory Tips <ul><li>Consider collecting all outfits within a subfolder for a main category such as “Clothing” </li></ul><ul><li>Make two additional folders: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>! - Always Wear </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>! - Usually Wear </li></ul></ul><ul><li>These two folders will usually appear at the top of your inventory list (sort alphabetically) </li></ul><ul><li>In “Always Wear” put your usual shape, skin, eyes, hair, etcetera.
