Vista Animations - AOs

Most all of us who've been in SL for any time at all have had a Vista Animation Override (AO) at one time or other and they are still one of the leaders in the realistic motion capture technology that allows us to feel semi-human in world and not move around like robotic newbs.  So this is for those newer to SL who are still trying to figure out how to denewbify (can I make up that word?) themselves.

Older AOs are as little as L$200 but for the best and most realistic new AOs you're going to spend L$1,900 which is about US$8, or less than the price of a movie or two beers or two gallons of milk (to put it in perspective).  So if you are going to hang out a while, get one.

Pink Fuel - Women's Skins & Shapes

This small shop has some ultra realistically textured skins for women with well proportioned body shapes.  Appliers for Slink hands and feet and most of the other AV add ons, lots of lipsticks and makeup options.  I highly recommend you check them out, there's almost too many options LOL.  L$500 for shapes, L$1,000 for the skins, L$300 for Lipstick, L$1,500 for fatpack of skin and makeups.

Maitreya - Women's Classy MESH Casuals

Maytreya has been around a long time and I can't believe I haven't blogged them since my first hair post way back in 2009.  They have been staying on the forefront of SL fashion with beautiful classy casual women's wear.  Dresses, tops and skirts, jeans, shoes from L$275 to L$750.  ALWAYS TRY THE DEMO - with mesh there may be challenges with size and shape as well as the all important Alpha layers.

Immerschoen - Men & Women's Sexy MESH Casuals

This is an old store with a lot of non-mesh designs but there is a pretty good selection for both men and women of tops, jeans, shoes, and complete outfits.  The quality and detailing is good, I liked this jacket myself.  From L$99 to L$399.  ALWAYS TRY THE DEMO - with mesh there may be challenges with size and shape as well as the all important Alpha layers.

Truth - Women's Hair

I shouldn't have to mention Truth as they are probably the best known hair designer in SL with just fabulous quality and such a huge range of styles for everyone. The one thing to beware of is that they do NOT resize which can be a problem so ALWAYS try the demos.  L$250 or L$1250 for fatpacks.
