Really good black skin is not easy to find in Second Life, but so far what I have seen, Glance Skin, created and owned by Joakim Asbrink,  managed to create black skins that are about as realistic as possible.  The face is so nicely detailed and the body part is as greatly detailed.  Joakim is known for her very detailed skins.

 They come with 7 different make ups:  1.Alek – Attention, 2. Alek – Metallic, 3. Alek – Red, 4. Alek – Angel, 5. Alek – Black, 6.  Alek – Colour and 7. Alek – Blue


The price per skin is 999 L and for a fatpack which usually contains 7 different make ups, the price is then 4500L.


“Alek” is based on sudanese born real life topmodel Alek Wek.  A short biography about her, from Wikipedia: Alek Wek (born 16 April 1977) is a Sudanese model who appeared on the catwalks at the age of 18 in 1995. She is from the Dinka ethnic group in the Sudan, but in 1991 she and some family members fled to Britain to escape the civil war between the Muslim north and the Christian south of the Sudan. She later moved to the United States. She has been modelling for big rl clothes designers as  John Galliano, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and much more. She has furthermore been named as model of the year in 1997 by MTV.

Alek Wek is a member of the U.S. Committee for Refugees’ Advisory Council, and is helping to raise awareness about the situation in Sudan, as well as the plight of refugees worldwide. In 2007 she wrote a autobiography “Alek” about her journey from a childhood of poverty to the catwalks of Europe.

 This black skin “Alek” has not been released yet in Second Life, so what you see is a preview of them and will be available in Glance Skin shop sometimes in next week. If you join the group “Glance update group” you will be updated on new products and much more – there is a group joiner in Glance shop.
