(eep this will be a long post! Big apologies to those who’d rather just look at pictures ^^”)
UGLYDOROTHY has been featured in nearly all my posts and I finally have the chance to dedicate one entire one to this great line of skins. All the skins here are done by Sopha McCallen from UGLYDOROTHY and the eyes are by Averie Larnia from =HooT=.
Firstly, about =HooT=; Averie Larnia has been making shapes for a while now and most of you guys would probably know her from Hourglass Shapes. I got a chance to talk about her briefly in my Harold post, but I’d like to re-introduce you guys to her eyes. =HooT= carries a few series of eyes and they’re all very realistically done but the colors are extremely vivid, making them stand out in photos. I mentioned before that her clothes lacked shading and Averie approached me in-world to clarify this for future product improvements. The shading of her shirts are very intricately done and because it is done in that manner, it can appear very light specially on her bright shades. They are by no means bad though because the designs itself are adorable and the folds go really well on the avatar’s body; my advice is that a little more dramatic shading would do the clothes more justice when worn. I’m sure Averie will consistently improve and churn out more wonderful creations. =HooT= carries other accessories and furniture that are quirky and extremely well made. Very unique and I’m sure many of you would really love her rose bracelets which are very intricately done. So do take a good look at the eyes in these shots — they’re massive love! Whoo~
Onto UGLYDOROTHY — Sopha and I have became fast friends for her character is very open and friendly. She’s been a sweetheart to me and I hope that my photos do justice to how pretty her skins are. I’m a big fan of her initially released Lea; and upon speaking with her, I found out that it was her first officially released skin. However, she has to take it down due to personal dramas. I’m truthfully sad about that — but no worries! Her store now has a bunch of brand new skins and shapes that are equally pretty! Sopha sells each makeup option separately and currently has no fatpacks. Once she is able to get into a bigger storefront, there will be fatpack options. Each makeup is priced around 700L and it comes with the skin itself, eyebrow options and the shape shown in her store.
The shading of the body gives the skin tone a very luminescent glow and the body is shaded to be very feminine rather than athletic which is why you won’t be seeing full strong abs in these. The ribs can be seen somewhat but not too obvious that it becomes scary. One thing I’d note is that with some of the darker skin tones, the shadowing is done with a rather gray color. It gets more obvious as the skin gets darker and you should definitely try on the demos to see if that bothers you too much. The ones I have shown above are the lighter ones and the shadowing is not greyish but a very natural color.
The shapes are all very different but if you’re anything like me and wish to just purchase skins and stick with your own individual shape, it might be difficult to pick out which ones you’d like. The skins are all pretty similar and have subtle differences in skin tone, lip shape and eyes — her future releases will be more versatile and I’m looking forward to them. I’m posting pictures of at least one of each type to show you guys how they each look on the same shape.
Lise and Lola are my favorites of her entire line, they are also probably the lightest skin tone. Lise has a deep double eyelid and most of the makeup option features matte lips. The face itself seems to glow as Sopha highlights the inside corners of the eyes, nose and slightly above the lips to make the lips fuller. A very neutral looking face that’s not overly smiley or sad looking. The blushing of the face is also done in a very natural way so if you like a subtle none made up look — this face is perfect!
Lola is a more asian shape with single eyelid — the eye makeup consist of either a red shadow (shown above) or pink and brown for the natural ones. There’s subtle eye bags to add realism and I think this face is very successful for a asian look. The blushing is heavier than Lise, and is done with a feminine pink shade. The lips of Lola are my favorite — they’re glossy and soft looking and comes in different shades in Sopha’s store. This one that I picked is reddish but still very natural looking.
Agathe and Eva; Agathe being the darkest amongst the ones I’m showing, is very mature looking. The eyelids of Agathe is also deep set and the eyeshadow options are all fairly darker to fit her skin tone. The lips are also mostly matte colors, there’s a wider array of lip color to choose from in Agathe and it ranges from light pink to a deep plum. If you’re not used to having extremely fair skin, Agathe is the closest option to a tanned skin tone.
Eva has very strong highlights around the inner corners of her eye and that appears to be the case in the make up options. The lips are all glossy and shiny, even on the natural colors. If you’re a big fan of lip gloss — Eva’s the way to go!
Both of these are Melissa and I wanted to show you guys are lovely the freckles are on all these skins. All the options will have a freckled version, usually being the final number amongst the skin range (did that make sense O_O). Melissa, Sopha said is one of the most sought after skins in her store, and I think this is because Melissa is the most made up skin out of the range. The eyes shadow choices are all fairly dark and obvious, and the lips are very shiny, just like Eva. However, the shape of the lips in Melissa are slightly different from Eva in which the upper lip isn’t as thick; a more natural lip shape, I’d say. The blushing is also very deep on Melissa and is all done is a pink shade. Melissa is very grown up looking and I love how natural she still looks even when she’s the skin with the most makeup done.
Ilona is the newest skin offered by Sopha — the skin looks very similar to Lola, being very asian looking. However, the double eyelids are more obvious and are all lined with a tinge of green. Ilona is offered to have a beauty mark either below the eyes or on the tip of the nose (how unique!) The skin tone is about as dark as Agathe, so I’d say a tanned asian tone? I love how the eye bags are shaded in Ilona, it’s very realistically done yet it doesn’t make the face look tired or sleepy. The lip shape is just adorable! Different colors are available, but very subtle differences.
There’s one last skin in her store called Maelys that I didn’t purchase nor take pictures of. That skin has a darker skin tone, and the only options available all consist of freckles. The lip is done to be very smiley looking, so if you’re looking for a happy smiling skin, that’ll be the way to go ^^
I really enjoyed reviewing UGLYDOROTHY and I hope that this enlightens you guys as to how each skin looks. Sopha is consistently looking to expand her store — I hope you guys show some support by dropping by to check her skins out! To end off, I’d like to share one of the times I bumped into Sopha — she’s so adorable!
