I bought the first 2 seasons on DVD, and we watch about an hour an evening (our maximum daily tv tolerance; usually we can stand about 30 minutes). So there goes time I could have been doing something else.

Yesterday, I opened my file of in-process skins for b85rfa - and found that the Downton Abbey Edwardian costumes were smack in my mind's eye, making it almost impossible to visualize anything for regency other than the hackneyed white dress with puff sleeves and a ribbon under the bust. sad

Maybe you ought to put the Regency things aside and do Downton Abbey skins instead. I love that show! biggrin

No, no, no! I absolutley cannot start a new theme. no

I don't have anywhere enough skins done for my magic theme, though I did start adding a lot more child skins lately, using the mesh we made for the kiddy costume door. smile

My space station is still waiting for me to zero in on the styles for body skins, though I do have a couple of hundred heads I'm testing.

My regency dress file has had so much base time put into it that I though I should get at least 20 dresses out of it this next week, then I was going to go back and get some adult male skins done, so that I could populate a new regency hood. But after the Downton effect on the female skins, I'm afraid even to look at the male skins. sad

DA is addictive, but I had no idea how much those costumes were clogging my mind.

If there's one thing I've learned, Bruja, it's don't fight the Muse.

Well, that's actually a bmp for b375fa, a mesh for a regency dress with a high white ruff. I was flipping idly through a SimPose, thinking about meshes for Edwardain dresses, and saw that combo.

The bmp definitely looks better on b375fafit.
