Update/edit – LOGO has now released the Omega version of their mesh heads in their demo pack – so whilst you still need to buy the Omega installer to activate it, you can now demo other skins on their demo Omega head! Thanks LOGO! <3
There’s one thing that I grow to love more and more about SL over time, and that’s the diversity. I honestly believe the amount I have learnt (both good, bad and err weird) whilst being part of the SL world has played a role in the person I’ve become.
Now you all know I’m always talking about ‘buying creativity’, because I do. If I see something new, ingenious, or just otherwise jaw-dropping creative, I’ll buy it, even if I’ll never use it, look at it or have use for it… because it’s my small way of being part of that person’s creation and rewarding their hard work. I feel that way about mesh bodies a lot (hence my addiction) and mesh heads (refer to previous comment) – but I especially love when someone makes something a little left of centre, or for a different audience. Fantasy/furry creators do this a lot, and I am always in awe of what they, and the modders who work with their items, create. I don’t tend to talk about that a lot here – but only because I’m not a furry/role player myself, and I don’t think I could do that genre justice, like so many amazing bloggers do (you can see Pussycat’s blog here, which is full of useful information).
This week Tonic released her new ‘Fine Beauty’ mesh body – and it’s a little different to the norm. The body is designed to have a flat/very small chest area, making it idea for fembois, those who play a younger avatar and even just women who like having smaller breasts! The body is designed to maintain a small chest at higher slider levels (which is important, because as you probably know, breasts below 50 on the slider usually warp). This is Tonic’s second mesh body available for purchase, the first being her ‘curvy beauty’ body, which sits at the other end of the scale and offers users bigger breasts than usual. You can see both bodies below, and read the full review here!
The other new release this week was Catwa’s Alice mesh head – another in her ever-growing line of ‘basic’ mesh heads that offer users the ability to purchase add-on upgrade packs and pay only for the features they’d like to have, rather than all of them!
For something different, I thought I’d show you this head with a few different skins! You can find Pumec’s June skin at We<3RP, Wow Skin’s Mimi at MBA Bi-Monthly, 7 Deadly Skins Dawn at MBA Bi-Monthly, and Glam Affair’s Kumi at Uber!
I know a lot of you have been playing with the idea of getting a mesh head, or demo’ing mesh heads and trying to find one that suits you – and I can’t stress enough that you need to demo these heads with skins too! I see a lot discussion about mesh heads in groups, and comments from those who have purchased a mesh head and wish it looked softer or more ‘realistic’ or any number of variables. Remember, skins make such a HUGE difference – as texturing always does. Without it, mesh heads (and well, all mesh) is just well… white! So demo demo demo!
So for now – demo those skins (you can see a list of skin creators and what heads they make appliers for here for WOMEN and here for MEN) and read below for Weekly Fitmesh Finds!
