So a while ago this skin texture was posted to Nexus, and I don’t remember what exactly turned me off of it at the time, probably that it didn’t support SoS initially. I don’t remember. Regardless, I happened upon the Nexus’ most favoritest Gary Stu, Grayson, who now sports Vitruvia. It didn’t really sell anything to me; I can say this here on a blog no one visits, but he is probably THE most generic-looking hero archetype (which is great because it goes well with his “tee-hee, I’m totes average looking u guise but I’m actually the most prettiest”…wife? Concubine? I don’t know. They’re awful and those stories are awful. There, I said it, and I’m not sorry.
Anyway, regardless of any milquetoast literary aspirations held by Grayson’s puppeteer, I was inspired to check out Vitruvia. And there certainly is an SoS version now, if there wasn’t before, and I thought, hey, let’s try it out on my Rei Ginsei. I was pleasantly surprised! And I think I’ve finally found my perma-skin for men. Complete Male Overhaul (which is now hidden for some reason) is great and all, but it didn’t really rock my world. So for the longest time I’ve been using urshi’s Smooth Body Textures and Fine Face Textures, which work okay together, but still have a noticeable seam at the neck. But this stuff, this Vitruvia stuff? I likes.
For my own personal tastes I’m going to see if I can make it compatible-ish with FemFeet Redesigned (I try to do that will all my skin textures ’cause I don’t like juggling), as well as lighten the body hair a bit and get Bad Dog Hoodie schlongs working with it. The three stock schlong options are covered by Vitruvia, but I’m an uncut kinda gal.
Also probably going to replace the speculars with blank maps because I’m noticing I’m just really not that into them anymore for whatever reason. At least where Rei and Zephyr are concerned.
In any case, here’s some Rei pics showing off his new textures. There’s nothing nasty going on but these are pretty NWS so. Use discretion.
