New release : Pretty Mummy

Hello there,

I'm back after nearly two months of silence, having been busy working on my latest and biggest product : the Pretty Mummy set. This blog post is meant to demonstrate it fully, both as a manual and as a tutorial, but it's not for the faint of heart : it's long and there are over 130 pictures in there ! Most of them being full-screen snapshots with no photoshopping done to any of them, all the pictures have been taken in-world with materials and shadows enabled, so what you see here is what you get.

This is a full-body mummification set that allows the dom/me to completely wrap the sub in fabric, latex, tape or saran wrap. Of any color, any transparency, even sheer or clear, and any style. You can choose to wrap the parts of the body you want and to leave the rest uncovered, or to cover it completely.

It is the biggest product in the RealRestraint brand so far, because it is comprised of four different and mostly independent restraints : the top parts to restrain the arms, the bottom parts to restrain the legs and cover the body (it is a mummification set after all), the gag for the mouth and the ears, and the blindfold for the eyes and the top of the head. All together, these restraints let you restrain your sub pretty tightly (the restraints are very difficult to struggle out from) and let you fashion her bondage the way you want.

See for yourself !

Or in lighter fabric...


... like nylon



Taped




Or in latex





Encased in latex from head to toe

 


Even clear latex


Or saran wrap





In tape again...





And making a nice decoration !


As you can see, the textures are very finely designed, the poses are sexy and tight, the possibilities are... many.




Before you go further, if you intend to buy this product, be advised that it requires your viewer to be able to handle two things : Fitted Mesh and Materials. Without either of these features supported by your viewer, it will look at best flat, at worst like a mess of vertices. You really need your viewer to support both features in order to enjoy the product to its fullest. Same for the people who are looking at it.

Half of the set is made of Fitted Mesh objects. Fitted Mesh is a special kind of rigged mesh (mesh attachments that articulate like the part of the body they are attached to, like dresses, pants or jackets) that is deformed more or less like the shape sliders of your avatar. That is to say, if your avatar has big breasts, the breast part of the object will be bigger as well. Fitted Mesh works better than standard rigged mesh but it is is not ideal, so the avatar shape has to stay within some parameters (which I will detail later in this post) to avoid "clipping", i.e. having your skin show through the material.

It has been mentioned that the mummy set could be transparent... This is actually one of its main features. Being Fitted Mesh and being built the way it is, it allows the sub to be completely encased into sheer fabric, clear plastic, nylon, transparent duct tape, you name it. The effect is great and very realistic.

If you don't want to modify your shape in order to fit in the Pretty Mummy set, and you don't really care about being encased in transparent fabric, you can use some of the alpha layers provided along with the product, that will remove all clipping by hiding some parts of the skin of your avatar.


What's in the box ?

The box contains a lot of things, in fact. You will find :

- Four main items : They contain all the core scripts and plugins, and they look like simple spheres or eggs. Each main item makes one of the parts of the set work : "top" for the top parts, "bottom" for the bottom parts, "gag" for the mouth and "blindfold" for the eyes. Each one of them is an individual restraint and is independent in terms of completeness : the sub can, for example, wear just the gag part and use it all by itself, without needing to wear the arms, legs and blindfold parts along with it.

- Several visual items, two of them having "rigged" in their name. All these items are controlled by one of the four main items, and are in charge of actually making the bondage visual. They are the ones bearing the textures, the sounds, the color and the actual shape of the bondage. All of them are objects containing at least two prims, their root prim being a simple sphere hidden inside the body of the avatar, the rest being mesh objects. They are all invisible until locked.

- A box containing Pussy and nipple tape pasties : These are unrigged mesh attachments, they will change color along with the rest thanks to the "MummyTex" plugin, but they are a bonus, they are absolutely not necessary for the product to work. It's just, well, you can always have use for more tape, right ? By the way you get two copies of each, so you can use one as a backup.

- Several gestures : The "Feet" gestures are used to force the feet either straight or bent, while the "Toggle breasts" gesture allows the sub to switch between the classic and the rigged version of the breasts cover.

- Twelve optional alpha layers : This is a "just in case" bonus. If the sub's avatar clips through the fabric and she doesn't want to change her shape and doesn't care about the transparency, those alpha layers can help. But if her shape fits in, those alpha layers should not be worn. Along with the alpha layers are provided the source textures, all full-perms.

- RR Anim HUD : This HUD is to be worn by the sub to help her control her pose when she's bound (see http://realrestraint.blogspot.com/2014/02/rr-tutorial-anim-plugin-v3.html for details).

- Notecards and a landmark to my main shop, where you can find an updater when needed.



The restraints

The Pretty Mummy set is divided in four parts, plus a few bonuses.

* The upper part (top, arms and hands)

This restraint is made to cover the top part of the body and to restrain the arms. From classic tape bondage to industrial shrink plastic, you have all you need to make sure your sub's arms are kept snugly out of the way, and her upper body is elegantly shaped. Here are the ties demonstrated with the tape material :


 Elbows only, she can still use her hands for many purposes (except getting out).

 Elbows and forearms, for a tight bondage.

 Armbinder, a tighter and more secure version of the above.

Pony, when you need those arms in check, and the pose proper.

 Straitjacket front, now we're talking.

 Straitjacket back. Has she been naughty ? Good luck getting out of that !

Mummy front. The arms are taped tightly against the body.

Mummy back. The arms are pinned against the back.


It also controls the visibility of the breasts through its "Style" plugin, allowing you to either cover the breasts or let them show.


 

Here you see the chest part hiding the breasts. You can hide and show that part thanks to the "Style" plugin contained in the arms restraints :

It says "Sorry, no style is available for this lock" (which is true, in this tie, named "SJ back", there is no predefined list of styles), but you can still click on "Breasts" to deactivate it. Then here is what happens :


You can also cover the hands to prevent her from touching stuff around (or people around, or even herself), thanks to its "Cover hands" plugin. This can be configured, you can allow her to touch the world but not other people, for example.


 


With her hands unwrapped, the sub can touch. But if the dom/me goes to the "Cover hands" plugin and clicks on "Wrap"...


Now she can't touch anything anymore.





* The lower part (bottom, legs and feet)

This part is for the legs, but also for the body and the overall fashion. It is the part that provides the most cover, because it goes all the way from the toes to the neck.



 A simple hobble tie. But you'll see later that it can take some other interesting shapes.

Moar tape. You can always use moar tape. There is a "Lying" version of it too.


"Pet". Now this is original : it forces the arms into "Pony" and makes the sub crawl on all fours. More about this tie later on in this post.

Hogtie. Or should I have called it "nice package" ?

Frogtie. When you want her legs in check, and her pose proper.

 And finally "Mummy" (and its sibling "Mummy lie", the same but on the floor), it covers the whole body in one single loop of tape ! The whole roll, actually.


You can even cover her feet to prevent her from removing her shoes. And depending on the shoes she's wearing (if any), there should be an appropriate shape in the "Cover feet" plugin to cover them nicely :


For example, here I am wearing high Slink feet with heels. I must select "Slink high" on the "Cover feet" menu to make sure I will use the right shape...



... then click on "Wrap" to make it show and activate the restrictions :


And the feet are covered all the way down (or almost) :


You noticed there were "Short", "Medium" and "Long" versions. This was the long version, here are the other two :

"Short" : it covers only the ankles.


"Medium" : it covers half of the feet.


This plugin should cover most common prim shoes such as Slink (flat, medium and high), N-core, Skifija, and of course the default system feet.

Be advised that the feet won't be covered on certain ties, such as those that don't hold the legs together ("Hobble", "Pet" and "Frogtie").


* The gag

This gag looks like the standalone RR Tape Gag, but is even more covering :

"Loose" : only the stuffing is showing. Is that panties in your mouth or are you happy to see me ?

"Medium", in case the stuffing is too much for her to bear, and she needs help keeping it in.

"Tight", in case some sound still comes through all that tape.

"Total", total silence. At last.


It even has an option to cover the ears as well, thanks to its "Cover ears" plugin, turning it into an isolation restraint because when her ears are covered, she won't hear chat or IMs anymore. Like the hands, this can be configured (you can make her able to receive IMs but not hear chat, for example).






When the tape is transparent, you can see small pads of cloth against the ears.

You can also add a couple more strips of fabric to cover her nose and the back of her head, to close the gap between the gag and the blindfold :

What do you say ? "How does she breathe ?" Well, there are tiny holes under the nose, but you don't see them. She just has to breathe slowly, that's all.


* The blindfold

Finally, tie the blindfold over her eyes to make sure she is in total isolation :



"Blurry" to "Thin". You don't see them here, but there are little pads of cloth before the eyes (you can see them when the blindfold is transparent). You can see them on other pictures on this post.



 "Medium" to "Opaque", but also the simple "Tie", which doesn't blind.


You can even go as far as covering the top of her head and make sure she is fully encased, with not one inch of skin showing underneath !

 

This makes a fine hood when the blindfold and the gags are both tied to the maximum, with the ears covered :

 Mmmph ?

 MMMPH !!

 
 All taped up and ready to go !


* One special tie : "Pet"

The "Pet" tie in the bottom part is a bit special : not only will it tie the sub's legs into a frogtie, but it will also tie her arms into their "pony" tie (i.e. arms folded tightly), even if they were already tied. This double tie forces her on all four like an animal, it is very humiliating !


 She can crawl, even run like that (or really, crawl faster), but she can also be cute and sassy :





Have her restricted properly with her hands covered, her mouth gagged and you're guaranteed to give her a humiliating, dehumanizing experience. She will love it !



Changing position

Almost all the ties in this product allow the sub to change her position to an extent. For example, if her arms are tied behind her back, she can move them further back, closer to the body, or even fold them or hold them in a strappado. Likewise, if she is bound standing, she can kneel and sit down. She can also control the angle at which her legs are tied, when she is sitting on an object.

All this is done through the use of the Anim plugin and its HUD

And even when she's tied up standing straight, the sub is able to wriggle her way down to the ground so she can lie, and the other way around. Although the restraints are tight, they are comfortable, so it is difficult but not tiring. She can do this thanks to the "Wriggle" plugin, which allows her to switch from one tie to another almost at will. In short, she goes to the "Wriggle" plugin, presses the button corresponding to the pose she wants to switch to (from standing to lying or from lying to standing), repeatedly, until she succeeds. It just requires time and total stillness to do so.


Functionality

Like every other RealRestraint product, this set is filled with additional plugins, to bring more features to the restraint, especially RLV support. For example, the "Control" plugin allows the dom/me to restrict the sub while she's tied (inventory, map, names, build...), while the "Touch" plugin allows the dom/me to restrict the sub's ability to touch. My favorite configuration is "don't touch other avatars, don't touch far, don't touch self, but allow touching world. As explained above, the "Cover" plugin of the arms part also imposes its own touch restrictions. Finally, the "Outfit/Wear/Unwear" plugins allow the dom/me to control what the sub can wear.

All those plugins are pretty standard in the RR brand, and there are comprehensive tutorials for each one of them here : http://realrestraint.blogspot.fr/2009/08/realrestraint-tutorials-tips-tricks.html


Be advised that this set of restraints does NOT include a "Leash" plugin, a "RealKey" plugin or a "Give Keys" plugin, since it does not have keys nor any solid part that a leash could anchor to. It would not be believable to add such a feature to it. Mummies are carried and stored, not dragged on a leash, right ? And although the "Pet" tie could use a leash, since this product does not include a collar, I expect the sub to be leashed by her collar, whatever model and brand it may be (RR or not).



Fashion

The main purpose of these restraints, beyond actually restraining a girl, is to make her look pretty (as the name of this product implies). So there's a ton of customizations available to you, brought to you in the form of three plugins : "Cover hands/feet/ears", "Style" and "MummyTex".

You have already seen the "Cover" plugins in action : they are meant to cover the extremities such as the hands, the feet or the ears, depending on the restraint, and will restrict the sub accordingly.


* "Style" plugin

The "Style" plugin is meant to hide and show some parts of the restraints as well, but this time without any additional restriction, just for fashion. For example when the arms are tied in the "Arms tight" pose, or the legs tied in "Legs tight" pose, you may want to let all the wrapping show, or divide each part in two strips or even in three strips :




Arms set to "Full" and legs set to "4 strips"


Arms set to "Full" and legs set to "6 strips"
 

 

Arms set to "Full" and legs set to "2+1 strips"



 Arms and legs set to "6 strips"
Thanks to the same plugin, you can even turn the "Hobble" tie into a hobble dress :


Likewise, the top part of the restraint lets you hide and show the breasts. Because you may want to have her snugly tied up under many layers of tape, but still have access to her gorgeous breasts to tease them, right ?



If you choose to just tie the bottom part without a pose (by clicking on the "Tie" button), the restraint will look like a tight dress.


And a sexy one at that, especially with the Latex material


Then, use the "Style" plugin to select the parts you want to show and hide :


Halter

Ensemble

 Fetish

 Top only

 Stomach only
Skirt only
... no need to show what "Nothing" means.

How sexy can you make her ?


On a side note, the box contains a few gestures that allow to switch the breast part between rigged and unrigged. When the rigged part is visible, it should follow the shape of the breasts of the sub's avatar, but if she's wearing mesh breasts, chances are this won't be enough and they will clip through. That's why the top part of the restraints contains an unrigged part for the breasts, that can be resized at will. Don't forget to check "Edit Linked Parts" on the Edit window before doing so :



 


The box contains a gesture, "Toggle breasts", that allows the sub to toggle between rigged and unrigged breasts at will by pressing Shift+F10, but all that it does is make her say "togglebreasts" on chanel 1144. Of course, the gesture is full-perms so she can change the shortcut to whatever she wants. The same result can be achieved by saying "/1144 togglebreasts" (without the quotes). She can also say "/1144 classicbreasts" to make the unrigged breasts show, or "/1144 riggedbreasts" to hide the unrigged breasts and show the rigged ones instead.

Each restraint has its own styles, and they are different when you tie them differently. That's a lot of customization for you, and that's only the hiding and showing part of it.


* "MummyTex" plugin

To actually change the color and the opacity of these restraints, you need to use the "MummyTex" plugin. Its layout is very much like the "HarnessTex" in the RR Body Harness and lets you select the part of the restraint you want and its surfaces, and to choose a color and a transparency. Each one of the four "MummyTex" do exactly the same thing and have the ability to modify the whole body, so you don't have to customize four times. The "Cover" and "Style" plugins are pretty simple (as a reminder, "Cover" will add restrictions, "Style" will not), but the "MummyTex" plugin could deserve its own tutorial page. Maybe there will be one later. Feel free to experiment with it, you won't break anything.


Just know that "sections" means what objects you want to modify, while "surfaces" means what parts of those objects you want to modify.


 Sections
Surfaces

There are fun things you can do with the "MummyTex" plugin by playing with the sections and the surfaces. For example, you could tint every strip of tape differently while your sub is in the "Arms tight" and "Legs tight" position :




All it took was a change of tint on every single surface (edge, inter, middle...) and choosing a different tint each time. Think you can make your own flag ?


Now, let's try something else. Suppose you want to tint the whole body black, after covering your sub from head to toe. You go to the "MummyTex" plugin of any of the four restraints (gag, blindfold, arms or legs), you select "PRESETS..." and you choose "All black".


But if you want more control, for example if you want her legs and her head to be tinted in a color that looks like skin, you just select the "Head" section (that's equivalent to "eyes" and "mouth" combined) with "ALL" surfaces, and select the "Flesh pink" tint. Then, you select the "bottom" section, the "Lower" surfaces and select the "Flesh pink" tint again and voila !


Looking through the window... there's someone inside, but who could tell...

... that's she's in a bit of a bind ?

She looks like she's dressed for the party, doesn't she ? Seen from afar that is. Because on a closer look, she's tied up really tight. 


By the way, how fun would it be to actually paint eyes and lips on her blindfold and gag while she's like this ? To make her look even more casual, you know ?
 
And now ?

 Ok the disguise may not be perfect, but it's good enough to fool the casual bystander !



* "Very funny" plugin

You can actually do that with the two "Very funny" plugins located in the gag and in the blindfold. "Very funny", that's what she will say when you use it on her. Or rather, that's what she would try to say. Chances are it would come out as "mmmmph" instead.

Both "Very funny" plugins are totally independent, and both work more or less like the "MummyTex" plugins explained above, but simpler. You can select a texture and a tint and decide to let it show or to hide it (it is hidden by default). Among these textures you can find :

- Anime drawings (starting with "Ani" in the menu) : pretty, happy, confused, dreaming, kissing, yelling, grinning...

 







- Japanese emoticons (starting with "Smi" in the menu) : disgusted, confused, happy, dead...






- Handwriting (starting with "Wri" in the menu) : the eyes and the mouth have different textures too, and they are chosen so you can make combinations easily :








My favorite is the pretty eyes with lips over flesh-tinted gag and blindfold, with hair. That way, a casual glance will not reveal the girl to be helplessly bound, while walking her in the street. Kinky !

But you know what ? You can make your own textures as well and paint them over the gag and/or the blindfold without even having to give it to the sub (although that works too, all she has to do is to put it inside the gag or blindfold, it just has to be full-perms).

To do this, make your texture in Photoshop, Gimp, Inkscape, Paint or any graphics program, export it as a texture and import it in SL. Good formats for the texture would be 512x300 for the eyes and 512x410 for the mouth. Once imported in SL, right click on it in your inventory and select "Copy Asset UUID" (meaning, copy its unique SL identifier, a 36 character long piece of data, to your clipboard), and paste the content of the clipboard in the text box you get when you select "CUSTOM" in the "Pattern" menu of the "Very funny" plugin.

Please be advised that to avoid alpha sorting issues (a graphical glitch that occurs when you stack several transparent textures on top of each other), the alpha mode of the two prims used to display the paintings are set to "alpha masking", which means that each pixel of the texture will be either completely transparent or completely opaque, but nothing in between. Keep that in mind when you design your own texture, don't do elaborate transparency or anti-aliasing, it wouldn't look like you would expect. Keep it simple, it's just supposed to be a painting made by hand anyway.



Materials

The box contains all that is necessary to wrap up the sub in tight cloth. I mean, it's a mummification set, right ? In fact you could wrap her into anything if you wanted, so the set provides you with 14 more materials ! You can have Latex, PVC, Rubber, Plastic, Bin plastic, Smooth plastic, Bondage tape, Vinyl tape, Duct tape, Nylon, Wrap, Gauze, Waxed fabric, Spandex and Bodystocking. Those materials can be chosen in the MummyTex plugin, contained into any of the 4 parts of the set. And the sounds vary depending on the material you choose !

Depending on the material, if you make the restraint semi-transparent, you will either see overlapping strips or not. It makes sense : wrap and tape are actually very long strands of fabric wrapped around the sub's body, so the strips will overlap, making the restraint less transparent where they do. It makes for a much more realistic feeling, and allows for example to render nylon. Simply choose the "wrap" material and have her completely covered, then choose a translucent or transparent opacity and a gunmetal or a brown color for the whole body. And voila, you have her trapped in a full-body nylon bondage :







Latex and plastic, on the other hand, are supposed to be painted or sprayed, or whatever you can think of, directly on the body, making for a big single thick layer of material that is stretched to the max to keep her restrained tightly, and that is resilient enough to withstand the sub's struggling, and even puncturing. In consequence, there is no overlap, even when you make it half transparent. The effect is different, somewhat more futuristic, and certainly more fetish :





Oh, I've heard that materials tend to slow the computer down... that's not entirely true actually. There is an option on the viewer to activate what is called "Advanced Lighting Model", which completely changes the way the world is rendered. When it is turned on, it activates the dynamic shadows as well, and that's what slows your computer down. But you can see materials without having to suffer dynamic shadows, if you want.

To do this, go to your Graphics panel of your Preferences window, activate "Advanced Lighting Model" if not already done :


Then turn "Shadows" off, where it probably said "Sun/Moon + Projectors" (meaning in plain English, "render shadows from the sun and the moon, and shadows from local artificial lights set as projectors") :


Et voilĂ , you can now see materials and the shadows won't show, and your computer will be happy.


Fitted Mesh

As indicated above, part of the restraints are made of Fitted Mesh objects. Fitted Mesh is made to follow the deformation of the avatar shape, but it is not perfect (the reason for it is technical : the data available to the Fitted Mesh object is simply a size, while the data available to the avatar is a complete shape, with vertices positions and all, so both are bound to deform themselves differently, but the approximation is good enough for most mesh clothing, provided the avatar wears an alpha layer that hides parts of the skin).

You have noticed that this product allows you to make the restraint partially transparent, forbidding the use of an alpha layer (or the holes in the avatar would show under the fabric).

This means that the skin could clip through the restraint if some of the sub's shape sliders are too extreme. I have done all that I could to keep that from happening, but it might be that the sub needs to modify her shape slightly to avoid some clipping when bending or twisting her body.

In practice, the shape sliders to keep an eye on, and the acceptable values for them, are the following :

Torso :

- Torso Muscles : Make it 40 or more. I recommend 50, that way you won't get clipping around the elbows when bending them.
- Breasts Size : Something between 50 and 80. Under 50 the fabric will be "sucked" inside the body.
- Love Handles : Not above 50.
- Belly Size : Keep it over 5 and under 30. The body is supposed to be compressed anyway.

Legs :

- Legs Muscles : Make it 60 or more. It sounds like a lot, but it is not really. Anything under 50 will look very skinny. Like "Breasts Size", the fabric tends to be sucked in when set to lower than that.
- Butt Size : No more than 65. Same remark than Belly Size.
- Saddle Bags : Between 20 and 40 is good.
- Knee Angle : Make sure it is around 50 because Fitted Mesh does not deform well at all on this slider.

The rest can be what you want.

If you don't want to modify your shape and you don't really care for semi-transparent fabric, you can wear any of the alpha layers provided in the box as a backup, but you shouldn't need any of them if your shape is within the parameters mentioned above.


Resizing the unrigged mesh parts

The other half of the objects are not rigged, meaning they can be resized manually. These objects are invisible while unlocked, but they can be seen by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T (they appear in red on the body) if you want. You don't need to here, though, it's just to give you an idea of what they all look like.

They are organized in several multi-prim (or should I say mesh) objects so the number of attachments is kept minimal. But that's still 8 attachments : eyes, mouth, left and right upper arms, right forearm, left and right thighs and right ankle. All those objects contain a few mesh objects that must be resized individually. But don't worry, it's not difficult nor too long. Oh, the rigged top part also contains an unrigged mesh prim to resize : the chest piece.

Firstly, tie yourself up in one of the locks, for example "Arms tight" for the arms, and "Tight" for the legs.

Right-click on one of the attachments that appear and select Edit. For example here, the upper arms :




Notice that it actually highlights the whole attachment, and not only the object that shows. You want to resize only one object at a time, unless you're okay with resizing only proportionally.

Tick the "Edit Linked Parts" checkbox on the edit window :


Now click on the object you want to resize and resize it. Having "Edit Linked Parts" checked means "select only one prim in this object" (or in our case, one mesh). To resize, simply hold Ctrl and Shift down at the same time and the resize boxes appear :


Since you have selected only one "prim" (more like mesh, but let's call it a prim here), you are able to resize it not only proportionally (with the white boxes), but also in any individual direction, either symmetrically (if "Stretch Both Sides" is checked) or not.

Once done, switch to the next object that is visible, and once you have done them all choose another lock and do the same with the rest. There are not so many objects to resize, something like 10 (2 pony, 2 frogtie, 2 arms, 2 legs, 1 hogtie and the unrigged breasts), but they are all placed and rotated correctly already, so all the sub has to do is to resize them the way she wants, it takes little time each.



Bonus : Nipple and Pussy pasties

A set of tape restraints wouldn't be complete without the appropriate nipple pasties and pussy cover to match, right ? This box contains both, and both are unrigged mesh so they can be resized at will. You can change their color and transparency (even if they're supposed to cover the sub's private areas, you may want them to be slightly transparent !) through any "MummyTex" plugin. You can set their color and opacity manually with the "Intimates" (that's nipples and pussy at the same time) or "Pussy" (only the pussy part is selected then) sections. Attention, they are not included in the "ALL" settings for the "Sections" menu, they have to be tinted separately. It makes sense because they are not really restraints, so they are not part of the rest of the wrapping.

 




Like the other unrigged parts of the set, the nipple and pussy tape parts can be resized with the "Edit Linked Parts" checkbox selected. And both nipples are independent, you can scale, turn and move both of them one by one so they will fit any shape of breasts, mesh or not.


The nipple tapes are designed in a way that their local axes are the most natural possible : X and Y along both tape strips, and Z being the thickness. That way you can position and resize the tapes naturally.





Be advised that due to alpha sorting concerns, the "Alpha Mode" value of the nipple and pussy tapes is set to "None", meaning they won't be transparent even if you choose a non-opaque value in Opacity in any of the MummyTex plugins. That's not a problem and is even desirable, in my opinion.


But if you really want them to become transparent on demand (they are supposed to hide the private parts, but why not), have the sub edit them and set their "Alpha Mode" to "Alpha blending" in the Edit window, Texture tab :


But if she does that, probably a transparent fabric will actually hide them altogether since they are underneath. That's due to the infamous alpha sorting rendering bug, that is not a problem only in SL.

Actually, the box contains two copies of the nipple tapes. One is resized for average breasts, while the other is resized for big mesh or sculpt breasts such as Lolas or Lush, but both are identical and they can both be resized the same. It's just so that, since they are no-copy, the sub can keep a version for system breasts, and the other for bigger mesh breasts. Same for the pussy tape, in case the sub wears Phat Azz or such body mesh parts.

Version 1, fit for medium-sized system breasts


Version 2, fit for Lolas Tango, rather on the big side (but you can resize them)

Oh, you might wonder why I didn't make an applier for the Lolas. Simply for the same reason I had to make four sets instead of one : you can't change the materials through a script and I really want the nipple tapes to shine like the rest. It is impossible to do that through an applier, at the time of this writing. And it would have been unfair to those who don't wear mesh breasts anyway.




Other bonuses : Bows, Gestures, Alpha layers

The box contains another box, which holds 12 optional alpha layers. Normally, since the product is made of Fitted Mesh objects, it should fit MOST shapes without modification. But as explained above, the sub's shape must remain within some normal parameters so some shapes are bound to clip through the fabric of the restraint. In that case, simply wear the appropriate alpha layers, knowing that SL has a limit of 5 alpha layers that can be worn at the same time.

Also the "Nylon", "Wrap" and "Gauze" materials show four cute bows to make your mummy even prettier :) You can see them on some of the pictures above.

Finally, the box contains three gestures called "Feet" and one to stop them, which allow the sub to force her feet either straight or bent, because some poses may bend her feet oddly if she is wearing rigged mesh feet.


How to organize all that stuff
