Ruth and Roth




Working on Roth

Starting to work on Roth and have turned the Roth 2.0 (RC#1) Prepared 2018-12-29 body into a BOM one

Ruth store

The Queen was always dressed so elegantly and loved color, so I have put up a pic of her in the store to celebrate her.

My Ruth store is now open! Outfits that fit the ruth body I have turned into BOM. I thought id post it here in this group before doing so in the main OSw pages. I have done my best to make the clothes work as well as i can but some alpha is required.

Ruth2/Roth2 shopping destination: Craft-Store
craft-world.org:8002:Craft-Store

Another sim which sadly isn't listed on OSW. Still, it's a shopping destination worth promoting here.

Look at Juno in the picture. Her red and blue outfit: T-shirt, skirt, socks, boots. Everything she's wearing is from the Craft-Store. In the southeastern corner, there's an area for mesh clothes where you can find quite a lot of exclusive items for both ladies and gentlemen. For the ladies, for example, there's Damien Fate textured by Eva Kraai as well as Clutterfly textured by the shopkeep herself, Tosha Tyran (unfortunately only in her size, I guess, and not in all sizes). There are also a few things you can indeed find elsewhere such as a Damien Fate/Deva Moda pencil skirt or some Taarna Welles shoes.

The mesh bodies offered here are unfortunately outdated, Roth 2.0 RC#1 not as much as Ruth 2.0 RC#2. Don't bother picking up the blue boxes, most of them are empty, and they don't contain anything exclusive either.

Now, the Historical Shop is where it really gets interesting for those of you with Roth2 v2 or especially Ruth2 v4 as well as other BoM bodies. For both sexes, there are skins, shoes and complete outfits to pry apart for bits and pieces. But while Roth2 v2 users may otherwise not find much more than a pair of knit socks which I double-dare you to actually wear, the ladies should go up that big white helix. You'll eventually encounter swimwear and lingerie, and you'll encounter stockings, socks and tights, all of which are exclusive to Craft-World, if not even to the Craft-Store. This is where Juno got her socks from. No more cold legs when autumn comes!
Ruth RC3 body that I have turned into a BOM body

I have made a BOM version of the Ruth RC3 body as i like the hud on that version. I have made a shape that will work okie with the clothes in my store though some alpha is needed. Will be open soon.

A store for Ruth outfits i have put together using Linda Kellie, Damien Fate, Fleep grid layers and some Remake shoes. During war time and the depression there was a push for people to make do with what they had, reuse it or remake it. This store is based on that philosophy and is my Os version. Some items are original form and others i have textured myself and so I have called the store MAKE DO AND MEND!

Jupiter Rowland: Where did you find that dress, or did you texture it? 3 months ago
Jupiter mentioned that i should share these pics of some ruth outfits i have been working on. The clothes I am using are from Linda Kellie and Damien Fate meshes. I have also borrowed shoes from Tarna Wells Savvy and the jeans are BOM layers. When i have a few outfits done i will put them out for any who want them.

Jupiter Rowland: First of all, thanks for making this group no longer a one-man show. Then I like the twist about this outfit: The jeans are good old-fashioned layer clothes, but it's next to impossible to tell with ... 3 months ago

Ruth2/Roth2 shopping destination: Steam
Steam may sound like an unusual place to go hunting for avatar accessories. After all, it's Vbinnia Radek's legendary steampunk varsim.

At 343, 589, 21, there's Vbinnia's Emporium 1 with lots of boxes including Arcadia Asylum creations mostly from the Urban Blight, Steampunk and Space Pirate themes, but also stuff by Vbinnia herself and others. It isn't too interesting when it comes to avatar accessories, but it's worth mentioning nonetheless. For you Arcadia Asylum aficionados: The buildings have working doors, but you may find more tricked-out versions elsewhere.

What's more interesting and actually on-topic for this group is Vbinnia's Emporium 2 at 291, 391, 22. It offers lots of classic avatar accessories, bits and pieces as well as entire outfits. But there's one box, all the way to the right from the entrance, that may be useful for everyone with a BoM body that can use alpha masks: the Free Lower Body Alpha Mask Set. It contains nine textures from which you can make alpha masks that render your feet and lower legs invisible. An absolute must-have for boots.
Brand-new Ruth2 (and, growing by and by, Roth2) shopping location: Meshmatsch
https://opensimworld.com/hop/82702
dorenas-world.de:8002:Meshmatsch

Now here's one from my home grid. A select few of you may know Meshmatsch for being the site of a jazz club, Klaras Jazzklub. That's where this picture was taken, it's Juno's standard profile picture.

While Klaras Jazzklub hasn't seen any event in quite a while, Klara has just recently added something to the sim, namely a number of shops. Her intention is to finally offer all her clothes and avatar accessories on one sim.

And she has created a lot so far and still continues to create. Before she started making her own meshes, she made textures for Damien Fate mesh templates, many of which Ruth2 can wear quite well, especially those which Klara used.

But then she learned Blender and making original mesh clothes with it. At this point, it's fair to mention that Klara is a Ruth 2.0 RC#2 herself. So all her clothes are made for this body. This also means that many of them fit Ruth2 v4 as well. At least her most recent clothes can also be worn by Athenas, but that's beyond the scope of this group.

Special mention goes to her new skirts from 2022. They're kind of universal, they come in lengths which you aren't too likely to get from SL, and they can be combined with Damien Fate mesh clothes.

Another special mention goes to Klara's mesh shoes. Klara is one of the few mesh makers to offer medium-height pumps and, just recently added, sandals. These, however, are rigged for Ruth2 and therefore too slim for Athena, but amazingly enough, they fit both Ruth 2.0's shorter feet and Ruth2 v4's longer feet, not to mention they can easily be retextured or tinted.

For the first time, you won't have to travel across the grid to gather Klara's creations (although that could be done by foot), and instead, you can get it all on one sim.

Grand opening is tomorrow from 5 AM to 2 PM SLT. (https://opensimworld.com/post/91768) Don't let the German audio play at 9 AM irritate you, though.

One more thing: Juno has made a box for Klara's new miniskirts, including two skirts as they were made by Klara and another 20 either made with textures provided by Klara or with retinted versions of Klara's denim texture. If the box can't be found at Meshmatsch, you can find it on the top floor of the Kaufrausch Mega-Store in Santiago on the same grid (https://opensimworld.com/hop/78061; you'll land right inside the building).

Jupiter Rowland: Okay, as far as the pumps are concerned, I've just received fresh news that Klara wants to upgrade and re-upload them. So don't pick them up just yet, or prepare to come back and get the upgraded ones... 4 months ago
Ruth2 shopping destination: Shopping City
https://opensimworld.com/hop/85405
astralia.eu:8002:ShoppingCity

What really makes this place stand out are the sheer masses of clothes and avatar accessories that can't be found elsewhere. This is not your standard stolen Athena, Adonis and Apollo stuff.

Classic system avatars that still avoid mesh like the plague can find lots of layer clothes with or without prims. This is actually one of the last places advertised on OSW which still offer any of these beyond Linda Kellie and FleepGrid standards.

Even the mesh clothes aren't what you find everywhere else. Not only have they all been (re)textured, but only few of them are based on SL content. Especially in the ladies' department, you'll discover lots of clothing based on Damien Fate meshes including one of the biggest selections of tank top and miniskirt sets. Unfortunately, some of the few Clutterfly clothes and some other older rigged mesh clothes only come in the size matching whoever retextured them instead of all five.

Nonetheless, the Shopping City is a treasure trove for both Ruth2 v4-based avatars and female system avatars who do use mesh clothes. It's just a pity that it often takes quite some detective work to find out who actually made what.
Ruth2/Roth2 shopping destination: Klamotto
https://opensimworld.com/hop/78282
otterland.de:8002:Klamotto

(Warning ahead: This place doesn't support BoM yet.)

Klamotto became famous as one of the biggest avatar outfitters on the Hypergrid. Both Ruth2 and Roth2 can find a lot here, even if nothing is explicitly rigged for either. For Ruth2 v4 I even consider this place essential.

Gentlemen may start at AlCapone menSweaR. Most recommended are the classics from early mesh clothing days, namely the Gavin jackets, the Ed shirts and the Peak suits. The Ed shirts can be combined with the trousers from the Peak suits, but there are also the Broberry jeans which fit them perfectly if you want to wear something more casual. Don't forget footwear, especially the Dandy and Monk shoes.

Some of these items can also be found inside the big yellow Klamotto/Deva Moda house, but there's even more, especially for the BoM-capable Roth2 v2. Pick up the boxes with the complete avatars and the kimono at the entrance. Further inside, you'll find loads of classic skins, classic tattoos (including body hair), hair, beards, classic eyes, hats etc. You could get the Box Of Sox for the classic grey argyle socks, but if you take all the Dandy outfits with you, you'll get argyle socks in even more colours.

Ladies are recommended to head straight to the big yellow house and, after picking up the complete avatars box (you'll find exclusive bits and pieces in there) and the kimono box, go upstairs. Especially for Ruth2 v4, there's hardly a place that's better at stylishly outfitting avatars.

This store is the last to offer Cary Bean's entire Deva Moda line of Damien Fate retextures. Sakko outfits, pencil skirts, partly-buttoned shirts (mix and match like there's no tomorrow), glitter dresses... The same room also offers both vanilla and exclusive retextured Taarna Welles shoes. The sakko outfit boxes contain Taarna Welles footwear, too, by the way. (See also here: https://opensimworld.com/post/89697)

Next to the usual vast collection of skins, hair etc., you'll also find Cary's own make-up. Do not forget to take the various lipsticks with you.

There's also a Clutterfly women's fashion shop on the sim. If you don't mind the inconvenience of almost everything being inside Oni Kenkon vendors, this will save you another shopping trip. Unless you're a male avatar, that is. In this case I strongly recommend you to visit your nearest Clutterfly (see also here: https://opensimworld.com/post/89743) and pick up the jeans because you'll need the alpha mask for the Broberry jeans and maybe also for the Peak Suit trousers.
Ruth2/Roth2 shopping destination: Clutterfly
For example:
https://opensimworld.com/hop/88460
dereos.org:80:Clutterfly Extension

Granted, rigged mesh made for the system body doesn't always easily fit Ruth2 or Roth2. This holds true for Linda Kellie's line of mesh products as well.

It doesn't help male avatars that she has only ever made three pieces of men's mesh clothing of which at least Roth2 v2 can only wear the jeans. I recommend you to pick them up anyway. You never know when you'll need them, and, in particular, the alpha mask is very useful.

Ruth2 avatars can only use fewer than half of the clothes offered at Clutterfly, too, especially Ruth2 v4 with her very pronounced shoulder blades. But Linda has made so many women's clothes that there's still a lot to find that you'll likely be able to wear.

The long straight skirt, the straight miniskirt and the circle skirt are too wide around the waist, but they work amazingly well with Damien Fate mesh tops. The Clam Diggers are Fate-compatible, too, but if you have a Ruth2 v4, you may want to make your own alpha masks for them because those added by Linda are a bit too extreme and alpha out way too much.

As for dresses, the babydoll dress, the halter dress/Lil Tennis Dress and the strapless mini dress/Glitter Dress are likely to work without any alpha masks. The ruffled bottom dress/Afternoon Party Dress works, too, but it may need custom alpha masks again.

Clutterfly isn't 100% mesh. There are also layer bikinis which could be useful for Ruth2 v4s who don't have enough beachwear yet.

Also, don't forget to pick up the jewellery.

Last but not least, there are also "raw" versions of the pre-textured clothes and of even more clothes in another building. If you want to re-texture Clutterfly clothes, these are way more convenient than the pre-textured ones.

Some of the shopping destinations to follow, by the way, will offer retextured Clutterfly clothing so you'll get even more of it.
Ruth2/Roth2 shopping destination: Savvy
https://opensimworld.com/hop/75031
bubblesz.nl:8002:Savvy

Original mesh clothing? Even rigged for Ruth2? Sounds good? Well, you can get it from Taarna Welles and her sim Savvy. All female clothing under the reMake brand is rigged for the Ruth 2.0 release candidates.

As for Ruth2 v4 which is quite different in the shape of its mesh, Taarna's clothes are for advanced users who either already have a collection of alpha masks at hand or are willing to make their own ones. Even then, forget the shirts further back in the reMake shop, and the shirt and top from the Breeze running outfit may be troublesome, too.

Beyond reMake/reBoot/Luella, it's worth taking the old La Baronnie shoes with you, at least those that aren't open shoes with built-in feet. The La Baronnie footwear was made for the system body, so it comes with alpha masks. In certain cases (e.g. the Poppy trainers), you may still want to make your own alpha masks instead.

Speaking of which, you may also take a trip over to La Baronnie on the same grid (bubblesz.nl:8002:La Baronnie) where you'll find more shoes and other accessories. Unfortunately, you can't take the Rinestone boots with you. But if you're interested in them beyond what's in the Deva Moda outfit boxes, ask me here or Juno in-world, and I'll see if I can have them passed to you.

But Savvy and La Baronnie also offer something for the guys: Not only are there men's shoes and boots under the La Baronnie brand, but the reMake hoodies and jeans (especially in combination) can be worn by Roth2 v2, given the right alpha masks. And if you should find Taarna's old Poppy jeans somewhere which have vanished from her own sims, take these as well.
Miss Rowland dropped a BoM on Koryphon

Yeah, if there's BoM event, my sister has to go all the way.

Shout-out to Thirza Ember for the tops. And don't ask about the denim skirt, it'll become available soon(ish).

Dressing up to the nines
What if you want to go to a formal dance, but you want to avoid unlawfully acquired content from SL? Well, Juno has mastered that, too.

Dress by Thirza Ember based on a Damien Fate mesh; find it at HG Safari (https://opensimworld.com/hop/75662).

Gloves, stockings, dessous (no, she won't show you) by Maya Rivera; find them at Surges (https://opensimworld.com/hop/80631).

Shoes by Klarabella Karamell; part of an outfit box which you can find at Bella Klara (https://opensimworld.com/hop/81258).

Jewellery by Marianna Monentes; find it at Monentes Jewelry (https://opensimworld.com/hop/84210).

Lipstick: Cary Bean/Deva Moda; find it at Klamotto (https://opensimworld.com/hop/78282).

Eyeliner: part of the skin (Starlight Remix).

Eyeshadow: Elif Kling; find it at The Hodgepodge at Wright Plaza (https://opensimworld.com/hop/75040).
Even if spring hasn't fully kicked in yet...
...there's no reason not to dress in stylish ways.

Jacket, skirt, boots and the entire sim around Juno (Bella Klara) are by Klarabella Karamell. The jacket & skirt set is available there.
https://opensimworld.com/hop/81258
If you can't get the boots there, find them in Santiago on the top floor of the Kaufrausch Mega-Store as usual. Also, check out the new arrivals.
https://opensimworld.com/hop/78061
Funky siblings
Straight from an on-going event (in a location that's basically devoid of any illumination): The Rowland siblings going funky!

No need to say much about my Peak suit and my Dandy shoes. Juno is wearing the Bibi coveralls made by Loru Destiny (I'll try to find out where these are still offered or get Loru to offer them somewhere; Juno's copy is no-transfer) along with white ankle boots by LyAvain Swansong.
Good news: Roth2 v2 can wear Trizzy's new tracksuits
See here: https://opensimworld.com/post/85316

And I'm the living proof. As you can see, they go well with Taarna Welles' Poppy trainers. All that's still missing (or is it) are white sports socks for men as layer clothes.

Recommended alpha masks are Gavin Jacket (only the jacket) for the upper body and anything made for jeans or trousers for the lower body.

Bad news: You may actually have to work out now, gentlemen.
Klara did it again: New jackets & outfits with the new skirts
Even before Juno got to make her boxes with pre-textured versions of Klarabella Karamell's new skirts, Klara herself has released a number of boxes with outfits containing them and a new jacket along with them.

You can get them at the Kaufrausch Mega-Store in Santiago (https://opensimworld.com/hop/78061) and Klara's own clothes stores at Bella Klara (https://opensimworld.com/hop/81258).

Oh, and you can combine them with the hippie coats.
Same dress, different styles.

Here is Juno in one of her favourite dresses, Loru Destiny's Burta Dress. It's also one of the few dresses which fit Ruth2 v4 perfectly without the need of an alpha layer so it can quickly be put on and taken off. Unlike most other short dresses, Juno says, it's loose enough for hot summer days and long enough to neither look slutty nor mean significant upskirt danger on stairs.

On the left, she is wearing it "summer casual" style with Rana flip-flops as if she's ready to go to the beach. On the right, she is wearing it with make-up and red medium pumps by Klarabella Karamell, more fit for a party (it was too warm for tights, though).
New skirts incoming
Klarabella Karamell is at it again. And still dissatisfied with the skirts available on the Hypergrid. So she's making new ones.

Juno is combining them with Klara's own skirt textures. Here she is testing one in combination with a Damien Fate/Klarabella Karamell jacket, a Beth Ghostraven top, Masaki Shinomiya tights, LyAvain Swansong boots and a Neo Cortex pearl necklace.
New hippie coats for the ladies
What reason could Juno possibly have to be decked out in Klarabella Karamell?

Well, you see it right behind her: Klara has finally released her new ladies' hippie coats! She had been testing them for a while now, and here they are. And they come in three different sizes and five colours.

As you can see, it's possible to wear them over some of Klara's mesh. In fact, they may fit over Klara's miniskirt which in turn may fit over her leggings. (Juno is wearing layer tights based on textures by Klara instead.)

Get them on the top floor of the Kaufrausch Mega-Store in Santiago (https://opensimworld.com/hop/78061)! And while you're there, check out Klara's other goodies if you haven't already.
Happy New Year from our New Year's party!

Dance the night and the old year away just like we do!

Outfit information will follow if you're curious...

Now we're getting seasonal again...

...with our greetings to all the Ruths and Roths and the rest of you!

Forget the "seasonal" part in the last post
Good news for Ruth2 v4s (and system avatars that ended up here): I've taken Klara's three winter outfit boxes from the Weihnachtsmarkt to the Kaufrausch Megastore in Santiago (https://opensimworld.com/hop/78061) where they're available all year round now.

That said, the Kaufrausch Megastore is a general clothes shopping recommendation for Ruth2 v4. More will follow (as may teleporters to Klara's other shops for your convenience).

Come to think of it, I should hang up some undies in the Linda department downstairs for those who still need some...
Seasonal offer: Winter clothes that look good on Ruth2 v4!
The Weihnachtsmarkt on Dorena's World (https://opensimworld.com/hop/85273) not only offers all kinds of classic Christmas decorations, but also clothes by Klarabella Karamell. Check the wooden building right next to the landing point, and you'll find some Damien Fate mesh clothes with textures made by her. They even come with alpha masks.

Oh, and don't forget to pick up the boots and woollen hats from the booth opposite.
Women could feel a lot cosier in the cold season...
...even if they didn't wear anything that has "Athena" written on it. Especially then. And they'd still look good. It just takes a bit of searching and/or asking the right people.

(Dress by Christine LaRossa, tights by Masaki Shinomiya/Shinobar Martinek, boots by Aether Dharmapala.)
The general idea of ladies' Christmas outfits...

...which are supposed to be worn like this outside in the ice and snow as well.

(Reconstructed by Juno: Hat by Latrine Cesspool, recoloured, dress by Linda Kellie, shoes by Taarna Welles.)

What female avatars seem to be expected to wear in winter...

...judging by the selection of ladies' fashion in many freebie stores. Feeling chilly already?

(Reconstructed by Juno: Top by Linda Kellie, skirt by Klarabella Karamell, shoes by Taarna Welles.)

Autumn
Autumn is colourful, but it's also chilly. You can't (or shouldn't) bare as much skin as you still could in summer. On the other hand, there are nice things that you can wear now such as these beautiful classic layer tights by Morgaine Alter (12th House Designs) with autumn leaf print. Places where you can find them include the mixed freebie stores at Wright Plaza (https://opensimworld.com/hop/75040) and Sunny Paradise Mall (https://opensimworld.com/hop/76916; don't worry, it's online).

Juno is wearing them with a knit sweater/miniskirt combination from Shinobar Annex (https://opensimworld.com/hop/82007), a necklace by Taarna Welles which is part of the same knit dress/ensemble box and boots by Klarabella Karamell, available at Bella Klara (https://opensimworld.com/hop/81258).

By the way, the picture has been taken at The Fall (https://opensimworld.com/hop/87371).

On a sidenote: For some reason, the Ruth and Roth group had been set to show its content to members only. I've fixed this, and now all content should be available to the public.
Group
Ruth and Roth
A group dedicated to the free, open-source, low-ARC, low-lag mesh bodies Ruth2 and Roth2 (formerly Ruth 2.0 and Roth 2.0), made in OpenSim for OpenSim. For now, it shall put a particular focus on the current fully BoM-enabled incarnations Ruth2 v4 and Roth2 v2.

Ask questions, answer questions, talk about your experiences — and show us pictures of your avatars based on Ruth2 or Roth2!
