Getting to Know My Mesh Body

I surrendered after more than a year of resistance. I took the plunge and bought a mesh body after a few weeks of trying different demos and playing around with them and some of my favorite clothes. I got Maitreya's Lara, and after some hours of reading various blogs and fooling around, I am soooooooooo glad I did.

I think we in SL pride ourselves on taking on new stuff that requires so much f*#&king learning. The mesh body is one of those things that IS a steep learning curve. I had to rely on different blogs, and very thankful for the Mesh Body Addict.



My new finds from the weekend are the "weekend special" dress from Hilly Haalan and ribbon shoes from -KC- Couture at Designer's Showcase. The dress and shoes both have color changing HUDs :)





Don't miss "Gravity is a Mistake" at the LEA.

New Finds from FaMESHed


This is the new hair at FaMESHed from Wasabi Pills called Ryleigh. It's not too long and hugs the body well. It's been a few months since a new do, so I went for it. The top is a group gift from the FaMESHed Update Group and is quite lovely. It could go dressy or casual, I chose to pair it with jeans.

Slink Hands, system body and head, no post processing. I'm still not into the mesh bodies, I keep trying demos with some of my favorite clothes and it still doesn't work. It seems to take a lot of work with customizing the clothing alphas that still don't quite make it. I want to keep my shape. Perhaps when someone comes out with an alpha layer that can easily block out smaller bits. I'm waiting for a head that can be made customized with the sliders. Too many twins walking around IMHO.

‪#‎thedraxisoutthere -‬ Here's One for You!

Finally got my T-Shirt from Drax's MP store.

I'm most enjoying some of the new things in my home. I am always remodeling, redecorating, and moving stuff around. The bed and lights are from Bazar. Ria Bazar does such wonderful work and very affordable priced.

I very much so want to believe............






Restful and absolutely lovely.

Nothing really new, organizing more of my inventory with pictures of my outfits. I've been saving outfits by date a description for a few years. Prior to that, did the same with "clothes" - first in description is the date. Most of these are freebies - gifts from the season, or specials of some sort.
