Big Changes Coming to :mused:

(In Case it was missed, This was a joke, keep an eye out for next years!)

Hey musers!

We are really excited to announce that we will be making some Big Changes around here at :mused: and I think its going to be great!

First we will be stopping work on the stud pump and by the time we are ready to release our new product milkmade will be shut down to make way for some great new opportunities!

What new product you must be wondering?

Breedable Breasts!

The new :mused: breedable breasts will be one of the best random avatar creation systems on the grid! Each set of lovely full mesh breasts will come out of its training bra as a set of cute little A cups! They will grow for a time until they reach their full size and be ready to breed!

The Breasts will have a wide verity of characteristics some of which will include:

  • Full adult cup size
  • Shape
  • Skin color
  • Freckles or other makings
  • Fur or fluff
  • Number of breasts in a set
  • Asymmetry
  • Milk production
  • and much more!

Every set of breasts will be transfer so that you can sell or trade them, or when you find some you want to keep you can trade them in via an in store system that will send you a set with copy, no trans perms to use in your outfits!

You can also redeem unwanted sets for :mused: points which you can use to buy skins to match the breasts, jewelry, tattoos and other personalization options.

Your new breast pets will of course need plenty of cocoa butter to grow nice and full which will be available from :mused:

We are very excited to be taking the company in this new direction and we wish everyone a Happy April Fools Day!

Smoothing the transition

Hey musers

(This week have a post from Skye about her experiences working to make the transition from your breasts to the SL avatar mesh less obvious. If you have something you would like to write about for our blog contact cali.ciaco to discuss it!)

Have you ever worked to make a really good outfit and couldn’t figure out how to smooth the line of sculpted breasts… or even mesh breasts that still end up having a line where the object meets the Avatar? Well in this post we’re going to talk about some great tips to hide that unsightly line to make your breasts look perfect even if they aren’t quite right.

I know I know, you’re saying, but but! I wear mesh boobies with skin appliers! But even those of you with mesh boobies, if you don’t line it up right or the lighting is odd you still get a line. Try your lighting at sunset and see what that line looks like then! That being said, this is mostly for those of you out there that still wear and love your sculpted Milk Made Breasts as they are because we know that color matching is the bane of all SecondLifers and even if it’s almost perfect, it’s never quite there. The secret is covering the line and making the illusion that the matching is close to flawless (with close matches).

We’ve used Midday, intentionally, for all of these pictures we’re providing, as that’s what most people in SL use. This is to show you just how well the line can be hidden and how, once hidden, the color has the illusion of matching. First up is a picture of nothing but the line! That line right there! You can see how, though really close, there is no denying that I’m wearing prim boobies.

So first up on our line covering options is something most people have figured out already, the Tank Strap. It fits snuggly around your precious titties and bumps right up to your chest so that nasty line is totally covered. It is also mod so you can resize it, adjust it and stretch it how you best see fit! It is the easiest option because its included in your :mused: Milk Made v1.30 package and designed to hold the pump tank. Even if you wear your pump tank somewhere else this is a good choice because you can wear it naked or clothed without much effort. I often blend it into outfits to even smooth the transition of clothing as well.

mused - MilkStrap

Next we will talk about clothes. There are many types of clothing options you can use, from full coverage to no coverage at all and that’s what I’m going to talk about today. A shawl/bolero/half shirt is a great way to hide the line and fudging where the start of your breasts are. Honestly, this can be done with Mesh or System Layer Clothing.

Anything that breaks up the space between your SL body and your Boobs will give the illusion of cover. Layers or combinations of system clothing, mesh or prims is really the most excellent way to merge this gap and leave you looking smooth and perfect. It’s one of my preferred methods!

mused - MeshTop
You can see in the first picture I’m wearing a mesh jacket that hugs around my voluptuous chest (above) while in the second it’s all system layer clothing (below). Also consider moving your boobs, tilting, pushing them in and out to get the desired effect you want. Subtle movements can go a very long way in matching up the lines of appliers if the adjustment hud isn’t working out for you.

mused - Applier

Next is the auspicious harness! I bring this up because it’s a perfect way to cover the top, though could require some boobie adjusting of size and position. I personally have two types of harnesses that I like to wear but just about any harness that has straps around and/or above the breasts is the look you’re going for. It’s very important to make sure that your harness has this as it covers flawlessly. You can find harnesses in sculpted prims, non-rigged mesh and rigged mesh (and even some clothing options with appliers).  This one here is the one I wear most commonly as it has a large chest piece that affords the most line coverage possible on something made out of straps!

mused - Harness

For all you furries out there I have not forgotten you! Though in a lot of cases what’s been mentioned above can still work just as well for you. A non-human option that I’ve seen in some cases is the use of fluff!  Modding skills required! Some people build this from scratch or out of old hair or tail parts. This is really a prime way to mind that gap. Here’s an example:

mused - FurryCover

This is just a basic guide, your style and how you cover (or uncover *winks*) yourself is up to you! I hope I’ve helped you understand that sometimes a trick of the eye can make the impossible possible while also giving you some ideas on how to smooth the transition between the SL Avatar and your Milk Made Breasts to help you create a more flawless look!

June :mused: pinup luciafavianellia

This month’s pinup is the ever sexy luciafavianellia Resident with the Theme of “His Girls”

MusedJune2013

We have not really been getting a lot of submissions for this I had hoped that adding a theme would help inspire some ideas, maybe help boost some people’s confidence since they knew what we were expecting. We have another theme planed for July but let me know what you think of it should we keep doing themes? Does it help or does it just bind your creativity? Should we drop doing the pinups all together? Should we feature our runner ups as well? Let me know what you all want! Anyway the theme for July is “Summer Fun” remember to check out or submission guidelines and to check out Iona Lemondrop from last month if you missed her.

(We got a few really nice pictures from Lucy and since we can’t feature them all as “the” pinup I decided to put them down here so take a look!)
