No longer had we posted our declaration to run a series on black and asian naturists, in and out of SL, than ‘the phone rang off the hook’, so to speak.
‘We do our share for black skins’, wail some skin designers.
‘You don’t understand the cost of producing a black skin’, cried another, attempting to justify the often exorbitant cost.
‘Hooray for you!’, wrote a black-skinned avatar whose thoughts mirrored my own.
‘At least you can find the occasional great looking black skin’, wrote someone else, ‘try finding a skin that really does looking Asian!’ (Far eastern or Indian sub-continent wasn’t specified)
I’ve also had contact from SL users who do run a black avatar with a common refrain that it used to be easier to find good, affordable black skins but that task has become ever more difficult.
