Paint it "Bare", yes.
Paint it Bikini, no.
I'm shooting these fits now and I can't agree with this more. The under bikini's spoil the entire effect that the painted bare sales pitch was trying to sell users. Seeing the bikini underneath just spoils the entire effect. If they had at least painted the bikini's the same as the paint on top it would be less noticeable.
I'm not sure if there are technical issues related to the over paint given the paint does go away when in the water just leaving the bikini and one can see the same issue when looking at the outfits through loading avatars.
I would have a hard time recommending these to my friends now that I've had time to wear and try and photo shoot them. In my opinion Madame Butterfly is the best of the 3 released.
I was not impressed with them when I saw them in store or on the welcome screen. Then, while I was at Lockwood HQ, I saw someone wearing the butterfly version and I had to do a double take lol. So, I went back to the store and really looked at them. They are actually nicely done, imaginative and unique. However, like others have already mentioned, would look even nicer without the bikinis underneath somewhat showing like that. I'm now getting at least one of them .
From observing in home and the forum, the male ones not getting no mention, i wonder why? those things look dreadful, i saw one brave soul put on the blue male one and strut his stuff in the hub. i swear i heard mutted laughter throughout the hub. i saw the butterfly one and it looked pretty good. they may want to rethink or ditching the male ones, imo. unless used for comical relief.
