Or, How To Get Your Skin to Match Your Maitreya Lara Avatar
Lara, the current Maitreya avatar, comes with a HUD that, among other things, allows you to match Lara’s skin to the head and face of your base avatar. I’m assuming that once you’ve bought your Lara, you don’t have enough $Lindens left over to buy a mesh head. This post will show you how to achieve a perfect match between your body and your face.
The Maitreya HUD controls many aspects of your appearance, including skin tones. If you can’t get an exact match using one of the presets, you can fiddle around with the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness controls. But even then, you may not be able to achieve a perfect match. HINT: That’s what the NECK FIX ON/OFF button is for. It blends your skin and base avatar colors for a closer match.
This is not, however, what I recommend.
Enter Glam Affair & Tableau Vivant
Glam Affair & Tableau Vivant is a site where you can find the perfect match for your skins. I discovered them through the Maitreya Lara Friends group, and checked them out. I purchased a set, and lo and behold, they were an exact match!
SL Daylight Sun Setting is rather harsh, but even in the harsh light you can compare this image with the one above.
