The Soda Skin Designer is Here!!!!!!



I am very excited to announce the beta release of a project I have been working on for AGES now, The Soda Skin Designer.


What is the Soda Skin Designer?:

It'a a unique tool I have created to allow residents to customize their look by choosing between a number of facial features. You can choose your eyebrows, eye shape, eye makeup, nose, lip shape, lip color, and extra features. There are hundreds of thousands of combinations available (no, really!), so you can make sure you are truly unique!
Visit the Soda main store for more information and free demos!


EDITED TO ADD: at the moment, you can only have ONE order in the queue at any given time. I am working on fixing that, but for right now, order one and when you receive it, order another.


So, How does it work?

How to use the Soda Skin Designer:

1. Visit http://www.sodaskins.com

2. Use the web interface to design you custom face and skin color. (flash is required to use the skin designer application.)

3. Make your choices carefully! You will not be able to make changes once you submit your order.

4. Once your order is submitted, your skin will be created by hand and placed in the Pickup Kiosk located at the Soda Main Store. Please allow 3-5 days for skin creation, depending on the current volume of orders.

5. You will be notified by email and IM when your skin is ready for pickup.



6. When you visit the Pickup Kiosk, simply touch the kiosk to purchase your skin's demo.
(The demo is $100L and is a deposit for your final skin purchase. The reason the demo is not free is to prevent billions of orders from non serious buyers. All demos are hand created, so I have to keep my sanity somehow!) If you wish to make changes to your skin after viewing the demo, you must visit www.sodaskins.com and resubmit your order. Your skin in the kiosk will be replaced with your revised design.

7. Once you have purchased the demo, simply touch the kiosk again to purchase the full skin.


This tool is new and in a sort of beta stage. It's fully functional, but I am looking for ways to improve the usability and products themselves. Please feel free to drop me a notecard with your feedback on how i can improve the skin designer.

What a brilliant idea! You combine the customization people want with the fun of paper dolls.

Good luck with this!

Oh that's odd, I left an enthusiastic longer comment but I don't see it now. Anyhoo, Alexa Linden enlightened me about this and I'm having fun with it... =)
