Warning… This is a REVIEW..
So please, read to the end before you make a judgement against me.
Let’s just jump into it, shall we?
I use to buy hair from there, constantly when I first started SL..
It seemed to be the “in place to be”..
And, at that time (2006/07) it WAS..
However, as time went on and I saw SL changing all around me, Damselfly…. stayed the same…
Now, please don’t get me wrong, for some this is a good thing… however, with texture changes in Second Life, and windlight.. and other changes, Damselfly’s oldies but, goodies.. fell flat.
I found, and so did many others, that when standing infront of other “alpha” textures, that the hair seemed to disappear.
Though this happened with some other hairs, and skirts, this trend was starting to weed out.. so, not seeing any improvement to the Damselfly hair… I stopped buying it.
Now, I am only ONE person out of MILLIONS… but, this was my choice at the time..
Recently, I stumbled upon a photo on flickr, that caused me to stop and take a closer look..
The texture was very natural looking, and “realistic”, so much so, I had to take a look and see where it came from..
Wow… Ok, so the skeptic in me, HAD to go take a look..
And… It has in deed changed!
I tried on a few demos, not really thinking I would buy any… but, I did…
Two styles… this one, in this photo is my favorite..
The textures are AMAZING..
I tested it, I stood infront of my ALPHA window and the hair no longer disappears, it simply fades just a tad.. you can still see thru it but, it no longer just vanishes..
NOW, it looks like gorgeous hair…
It has amazing movement, and this style here, is awesome.
It is very hard to find a nice, flexi hair in a bleach, or platinum color that doesn’t look… foolish.
TOmmy Fairplay & Shylah Honey, kudos to you for stepping up your game!
I highly suggest that if you were like me, and basically gave up on Damselfly, go take a look..
They have many new styles and even what looks like a retextured older hair, as a gift (could be new, what would i know, i have not been there in a very long time).
The packs include the hair, and a hairbase to match each of the 4 shades in the box, and the hairs are 200L per pack.
Now, hopefully people read this, and go have a go at the store!
