Top fashion picks for Belleza!

Hi MAddicts!

So one topic I get a lot of questions about is Belleza – what is happening to Venus? Why isn’t Venus in the demo? Why are there three bodies? Can I buy them seperately? Well, I thought today I’d answer some of these questions for all of you by explaining the history/timeline of the Belleza releases!

Belleza was released last year for 3,999L, and the initial plan was to release Venus, and later release a more ‘plus size’ version of the body which would be sold seperately. As most of you know though, there was a long gap in between updates for Venus, and this primarily because (as all mesh bodies creators do), Belleza learnt a lot about what needed to improved on their body and decided to update it. Specifically, issues around the hands and feet not being SLUV (so many skin creators didn’t make skin appliers for them) and other issues.

Months went by, and Belleza decided to release the new reworked version of Venus (now known as Isis), and as a special addition, include the plus size version of the body too (Freya). Just before release however, it became VERY apparent that many users of the Venus body preferred the old ‘Venus’ shape and wanted to stick with it. So, at the last minute, Belleza included a roughly updated version of Venus too ( which is why Venus and Isis are very similar, but not the same. Isis was supposed to be the new Venus). The problem is, they’d worked months on updating Isis/Freya, but hadn’t counted on continuing Venus as it was.

That’s why now there are three bodies in the Belleza pack, that aren’t sold seperately (because really you’re getting three bodies for the price of one). It also explains why Venus isn’t in the demo pack – they’re currently updating Venus to iron out the glitches but retain the shape as it was. The good news though is that Venus will continue to be supported – you have spoken and Belleza have listened!

So why are more designs coming out for Isis/Freya than Venus? Well because Venus wasn’t going to be continued in its current incarnation, the developer kits for mesh creators didn’t include the updated Venus (and still don’t, just because Belleza are finalising the updates to that body before giving it out to avoid designers making clothes that don’t fit later down the track). Venus will (and is) popping up more and more, and will continue to do so over time.

So there we go! A bit of an explanation about Belleza, Venus and how Isis and Freya fit into the mix!

  1. This post just made my day! Made my week! My month even! I’m so happy to know my Venus body is safe. It truly is, in my opinion, the only mesh body that has just the right curves and not overdone like all other bodies (huge breasts, tiny waist, wide hips, fat bum) and there definitely would be a huge void in the market if they took away the Venus.

  2. My first experience with Belleza has been the Isis body and I love it. I am kind of top and bottom heavy in rl but not fat. Isis lets me approximate my shape own more closely than any other without making me look overweight. Maitreya and Belleza are my favorites. Even the new Venus body works for me for that svelte look I’ve always longed for. I like Slink but the shoulders are a showstopper for me.

    Thanks so much for the explanation. Now if only there was a good African American mesh head that looked natural! The TMP Fierce head comes the closest to what I want but I cannot stand the huds!!! Too bad it does not work with other bodies…

  3. Im with Grace, so happy that they decided to keep the Venus and above also explains why some creators havent upgraded their venus things yet. I was just about to NC Razor cos there is a glitch around the wrists now. Ill be my usual patience when it comes to Belleza, They dont update as often but when they do its a big one and very worth the wait!
    No if we could get skin creator on board inclueding heads to do non cute skins (Daria knows what I really mean so I wont write here risking offending people) that would be super awesome !

  4. The mesh bodies is a thing that normally should never hapenned, if we had an SL engine up to date^^, thanks to LL
    maybe many business will loss money soon, starting with mesh body and normal av clothing, as they (LL) are working since 2-3 years on a new sl engine that will be “separated” or not nessessary “compatible” with the previous stuff, wich mean they focus on quality not compatibility with the stuff of 12 yeards of creation, so maybe stuff stuff will still work some not and we can’t know in advence… …and the new sl with have it own mesh body with lots of sliders and manual polygon modif…
