Two new Mesh Heads & GA.EG’s Kirsten head reviewed!

Hi MAddicts,

Lately it seems like every post I write, there’s a new mesh head on the market, and this week is no exception. Maybe it’s time for weekly mesh head finds? LOL. Before I get into the Mesh Head run down, I just wanted to highlight to all the mesh body fashion designers out there that I’ve finally found time to set up advertising on my blog (which you can see to the right). To find out how to advertise your business, you can find the info here 🙂 For my readers, the designers advertising on the left side menu are helping me to financially support my blog, so give them love and click to find out more about their brands 🙂 Thank you all <3 Now enough of that jazz!

This week we’ve seen two mesh head releases, the first (above) is the new Kirsten mesh head by GA.EG (the collaboration between Gaelene Creations and Ellegance). I’ve reviewed this mesh head in full so you can guys can read about it here (and see it on my mesh head table here) but in summary, the head does come with emotions, animations and it does blink/have moving lips 🙂 It’s not Omega compatible, although I believe they are investigating this possibility at the moment. The head will work will mesh bodies, and sat well on all of mine (even TMP with the retrofit neck wasn’t too bad). You can grab a demo at GA.EG here.

The second mesh head for this week is Olivia by Genesis Labs. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Genesis Labs, they have released quite a few mesh heads now and typically release them at events, although you can see their collection at their store here. Here is their latest, Olivia, who you can find at this round of The Seasons Story!

Now on to other news – the new MBA Bi-Monthly event starts in 9 days (eep!!) so I’m going to be well and truly immersed in setting that up and organising the amazing line up of designers who will be taking part, so it may be a quiet week for me blog wise, however I came across something quite interesting this week while reading Strawberry Singh’s blog. It seems YouTube has created some kind of ‘streaming’ video feature, that allows  individuals to show (real time and after the fact by just watching the video) the user’s screen. I think this kind of technology could be really helpful for workshops and tutorials about mesh bodies, because the main barrier has always been trying to explain what I’m seeing on my screen when I’m answering questions from people – so what do you think? Workshops with live video streaming? Would love your thoughts so as always, leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts MAddicts!

I’m also considering a few new ‘technologies’ for the blog – namely, a Forum or Question/Answer board. I thought it may be useful for people to have somewhere less time-reliant (such as group chats, which rely on you being in chat at the time of the conversation) for people to discuss mesh heads/bodies, pros and cons and help each  other with questions. Would you use it? Let me know below!

Until next time!

  1. Camtasia – it’s been around for years and you can get a free trial (30 days). It’s put out by techsmith and is very VERY easy to use. I’ve used it for tutorials, creating powerpoint videos, and yes screenshot videos for many years.

    I haven’t however read up on or researched the YouTube version. 🙂

    Love your blog and always look forward to your fitted mesh finds! Keep up the good work.

  2. This is only my opinion but, what a wasted opportunity by Gaeline(I quite liked there feet etc back in the day)….too me it looks like a standard SL head that’s been fitmeshed and given a HUD with makeup. I can walk into any store or club on SL and so 30+ avi’s WITHOUT mesh heads who have exactly that same style face/skin. I mean for the price why bother, I don’t get it. Compared to the totally unique heads of TMP, Lelutka, Catwa, Snow Rabbit, Genesis Labs, etc. I just don’t see this going anywhere.
    Btw Im not a hater at all, I am just disappointed at this wasted(and lazy?) attempt at a mesh head. 🙁

    • I do get where you’re coming from, but I can tell a lot of work has been put into this head and its functionality. I think it caters to a different market perhaps, because it does remind me of more ‘traditional’ SL looks, which is something that a lot of customers are looking for, so this head gives them the chance to keep that style whilst enjoying the functionality of a mesh head and the perks of high quality makeup, lashes and texturing 🙂

  3. I watched Berry’s tutorial (on replay as someone had a paper cut and needed a band-aid sighs) and after she had a few problems was great .
    I think this is something everyone could benefit from .
    The forum would be a great idea as well, you could break it into sections Bodies Male/Felmale, Heads Skins even have sections for clothes and appliers
    My thoughts for the week ♥

  4. I love Kirsten head, she is too beautiful and cute,
    I was looking for the perfect, functional and beautiful head in SL and I am very excited, I found …
    Poses and animations are gorgeous, it’s been very lively, the head is not fixed like the others, included many cosmetic customizations in the basic hud, lashes, brows, lipsticks, shadows …
    and contrary to what sayMikayla (hatter), Kirsten is a nice finish and is not like the others, it has a lot of style and can look through the HUD, many choices in the included skins, I also tried my omega skins and match perfectly and all addons are doing very well and detailed. I hope they do other heads, I can not wait.
    xoxo Anna
