In French, Tableau Vivant means “Living Picture”. Living pictures are in essence a display of life’s many layers. In all the surrounding layers, people long to be noticed, and what better way but to use layers to your advantage? With just a touch of layering in your look, you can add interest. Double shirts for men and women seem to be a trend in SL that is here to stay for a while. The crisp texturing with the organic shapes of the sculpted arm and doubled hem pieces make for quite a show in an effortless way.
In creating the look that you’re going for, there is an option in 2.0 viewers that allows you to add multiple layers to the same layer. You can utilize this feature with Tattoo/Clothing/Alpha layers alike. In this styling I am using two tattoo layers, one for the MADesigns hairbase and another for the Sacred Skins mustache. The way I did this was rather than choosing ‘wear’ when I put the second layer on, I chose ‘add’. Doing this also works with attachment points, as I had to do with my pant cuffs and shoes, as well as the armband and shirt cuff on my left arm. When attachments are modifiable I like to tint them a bit to match the focal point of the outfit. In this outfit I also chose to tint the pant cuffs and the armband to match the color pallet I based around the main pieces of the look.
