Malls with shops and/or vendors of interest

Here we list malls we know of that include shops and/or vendors that sell:
  • prim breasts (with or without tops)
  • tops that work with prim breasts
  • avatars that include prim breasts
  • outfits that either include prim breasts or are made to work with prim breasts
As we learn of more, we'll edit this post to include them, so there's one post to find them all (I'm so sorry, Professor Tolkien!). We'll also list the vendors selling the above items that one can find there as we explore and find them (or are told of them--hint, hint, vendors and mall owners! Right now, just to get this going, I'll put them in the order I wrote things down while exploring; later, alphabetical order throughout, to be consistent and avoid issues of favoritism.

Latex suits from Eclectic Randomness

I've owned Eclectic Randomness's prim breasts w/latex top for some time, but I've always wanted a latex suit made to work well with it. (Until SL really supports proper emulation of the way light reflects off surfaces, creators have to paint on highlights and the like, and different creators do so enough differently to make the mismatch stick out.)

They've finally done it. Alas, while the prim breasts and top change colors, the latex suits don't--you'll have to buy one of each color that appeals to you. I like the results. (Oh, yes... the stiletto heels in the photo don't come with the suit; they're the wonderful 11" stilettos from VvB.)

UPDATE: Lest I give the wrong impression: the latex suits do not come with a prim breast top.

ADDENDUM: If you look at the full-sized version, you'll see that some of the details near the collar aren't visible. That is purely my doing, given the size I have the prim breasts set to.

MinkaMade limited editions

While trying to find something else, I had the good fortune to come upon MinkaMade.

One of the stereotypical uncomfortable situations is meeting someone wearing the same outfit. Minka Pearl therefore only makes three of any given outfit. Her work is adaptable to (sufficiently recent) Implant Nation prim breasts and eCorp prim breasts. The link above is to her blog; check it out.

"The street finds its own use for things..."

So, the question: how to wrangle a blog into doing a web site's job?

I will create some entries that will have links to them. They'll be listings of vendors, FAQs, and such, updated as needed. (And if there's need, please let me know!) The rest will be news of the sort that one finds in blogs.

I'll start seriously tagging, or in Blogger speak, labeling, posts to make searching easier.

We'll see how it works out.


OK. Because it's the right thing to do, as SL fashion bloggers knew and have done long before the FTC got involved, here are some things you should know.

Shortly after I first found out about Smashing Prims and started blogging about it and outfits I bought there, Raven Ivanova kindly gave me a "Christmas present" with some of her outfits. (I continue to be a customer there.)

Foxbean Liebknecht has generously given me some of the prim breasts and tops she makes. I've also bought her products. The current "Nadine" breasts are my personal favorites, and I really really hope that third party clothiers start making versions of their tops for them.

Dresses from Nanami

I was on the grid at the same time as beautiful Mesha Sewell, and she showed me a lovely Nanami dress that she bought, "Lady Mae", and gave me permission to post a photo here.

Also, I succumbed to temptation and bought the "Miss Jane" dress from Nanami, as I said I would do someday. Here's a photo.

The sharp-eyed will notice my ineptitude with the Implant Nation prim breasts. I bought some long ago, but have never used them until now, and I was too impatient to get a photo and put it up to match skin tones. Also, there but barely visible are stockings from another outfit that I had on.

Embarrassing bug with shadows enabled

I've been using (various; lately I've leaned towards Emerald and Snowglobe) SL clients with shadows enabled. Shadows don't quite work, but when they do they're wonderful. Two bugs stand out:
  • shadows wreck snapshots; they're saved as all black
  • shadows cause textures with alpha to seemingly randomly flicker into and out of view
What does this have to do with prim breasts? Well... the recent wonderful efflorescence of tops that work with prim breasts are based on having a "clothing layer" that surrounds the prim breasts. For anything but the most demure and modest outfit, it will have to have alpha enabled to show whatever amount of skin... which means that for those who have shadows enabled, they will occasionally disappear. For modesty's sake, let's hope LL fixes this one quickly...

So, I was going to be all organized and tour the Mammatus Mall and Northstar Mall and the other malls where one can find prim breasts and clothes for prim breasts, gathering data... and then talented and drop-dead gorgeous Mesha Sewell IMed me about Nanami.

Nanami makes clothing that works with Implant Nation, eCorp, and iBoob prim breasts. (I should mention that earlier Implant Nation prim breasts don't support third-party clothing; here and henceforth, when I say a top works with Implant Nation prim breasts, I mean the later versions.) The styles vary from a demure white Victorian dress with matching hat to more modern and more daring outfits. They're beautifully made. I'm sure I will buy that Victorian gown someday.

There's clothing for guys there, too.

The main store is at Saphir 59, 180, 22. Since it's called the main store, I have to think there are other branch stores, but I have yet to find one. I'll give pointers as I find them.

UPDATE: Nanami does indeed have various branch stores; one is at the Mammatus Mall, up at the northeast corner of the third floor. (Teleports into Mammatus always take you to a spot from which you can teleport to one of several areas on the island; choose the Mall, and once you're teleported there, you can get to the store.))

Here We Go...

Hello, and welcome.

I hope to keep track of all the makers of prim breasts and clothing for use with prim breasts in Second Life. (And who knows--if other virtual worlds either develop something analogous, or, even better, make avatar shapes sufficiently versatile that they can accommodate figures that in Second Life require prim breasts, I will cheerfully report on it.)

I will also either post or give links to discussions of prim breasts, what one should look for when choosing them, and the like. I'm happy to say that some of the things I've written in the past have been made obsolete by positive developments, so better I should rewrite.

I will go exploring, signing up for update notifications, and so forth... but you can help me. If you create prim breasts or clothing for them, please email me with information on your products, store locations, and the like. The address: If you are a prim breast user (and if you are, or if you are thinking of becoming one, or would if so doing didn't limit your clothing choices, please consider joining my group "Prim Breast Users"), tell me of your experiences and things you like and don't like. Thanks.
