Low ARC with High Impact

Recently I was invited to a fashion show with a black tie dress code. As a model, I know how much time, effort and hard work goes into creating a fashion show and how lag can ruin the experience for everyone and make it so much harder for the models.

Low ARC (avatar rendering cost) at fashion shows, especially a black tie event, is possible without sacrificing prims, jewelry and fashion impact.

The basis of this outfit is the gown from Bare Rose. It has prim attachments at the base of the neckline to create a detailed low scooped neckline at the front and a prim attachment split skirt. The texture is rich and detailed and the low cut back is very provocative. I’ve left out the drape/rose prim detail shown in the picture above, and the gown combined with the layered hairstyle from Fashionably Dead comes in at a ARC total of 221, giving you lots of room to play with jewelry and shoes or add the drape/rose prim attachment and still be ARC friendly. The total ARC count for the gown and accessories shown including the scripted stiletto heels was 605.

The gown, like nearly all of the outfits from Bare Rose, comes in a number of colors for the one price, and it’s available in black, blue, red, green, pink and purple as well as the brown shown here. Unbeatable value for money!

The stiletto heels are from Hoorenbeek and are their first release product for women. Like all the items created by Hoorenbeek the styling, texture and detail are superb.

Hoorenbeek stiletto heels come with a script that allows you to choose from 6 different hand crafted textures (patent leather, leather, crocodile, dark crocodile, zebra and leopard) and 12 different colors.

There’s an optional strap and bow from the menu, which gives you another 12 colors and 6 different textures, so you can combine different parts of the shoe, including the bow and strap with different colors and textures.

Hoorenbeek has created a stiletto heel that literally gives you thousands of options and almost unlimited possibilities in creating a shoe to match any item in your inventory.

Hoorenbeek stilettos are a must have in every woman’s wardrobe.

  1. You look great and wow, what an impressively low ARC you managed without looking like a 2006 noob. Men seem to have less issues with high ARC Right now even with prim hair, scripted, sculpty shoes my ARC is 672.

    I remember going to a Runway Kid’s sponsored Dance at Tempura Island and one woman there had an ARC of over 17,000. She was incredibly proud of it, while I wished push and kill were enabled.
