… hasn’t been invented yet. However, I predict it will be a game that can do shoes better than Second Life, because if they can do shoes well, then everything else will have to be fabulous, too. You think I’m crazy? Well, maybe. But I also know the most undersung geniuses in SL are the people who design shoes. OK, and jewelry and clothing, too. In all cases, this is genius on a small scale. My favorite Zhao shoes are miracles of microprims, right down to the teeny perfect buckle, the label on the sole just like the top designers and the little ‘Z’ charm dangling off the side.
You can see the breadth, depth and width of these creativity at the new Shoe Expo, another designer showcase that also raises money, this time for the ASPCA. It should show any would-be designer that the bar has definitely been raised way high, and only the best-quality products will survive. Clunky prim triangles won’t cut it anymore.
Now, if SL could just get rid of our bloated ankles! Makes us all look like we’re retaining more water than a pregnant woman in her 9th month.
