I don’t want to be a ball and chain

It’s heeere!

THE MESH BODY IS HERE.  Bit & Baby, the two who created the toddleedoo avatar, have finally created an adult version in the “WowMeh” mesh body.

What makes it so great, you might ask?  Well I am going to show you step by step everything about the mesh body so that you can decide for yourself.  (Picture heavy post time!)

Upon purchasing this mesh body, the first thing you’ll note is that the price is only $350L.  This is a steal compared to how many other mesh parts I have purchased for upwards of 2,000L a piece.  Considering each mesh part I have purchased has been 1700 or more, let’s add it up.

Lolas (1st version) 1700
Lolas (pushup) 1700
Lolas (tangos) 1700
Lolas (mirage) 1700
Phat Azz 1700
Cute Azz 1700
*and let’s not forget slink, too*

So over time, roughly I have spent about 10k+ over the past few years “updating” my avatar with mesh parts.

Need I say again that WowMeh (which is fitted mesh and resizes itself to your shape) is only 350L?

OKAY! So out of the box, here’s what everything looks like.  Please note that most of these pictures are NSFW.  My nipples and my coochie are out.  I’m giving you this one opportunity to TURN AWAY!

..
….
……

Yeah, I’m dead sexy, I know.  So the important parts to wear are the alpha & the body, and then the hud itself.  The feet & hands come with and are options as well, but I prefer slink due to the options that one can have with the slink feet (plus all the shoes made for them) as well as the tattoos that can be worn on the hands, etc.  OKAY, enough of that, onward!

Here is the basic skin hud.  As you can see, there are lots of skins to choose from (and nipple options as well) or if you make your own skins, you can drag and drop the textures where it says “Custom Skin” as well.

Upon picking your skin color you’ll see a pop up window similar to this:

This is, in fact, a tattoo layer meant to help blend your skin into your other joints that are left exposed, so that when it’s all said and done, everything is seamless.

Now let’s talk about layers.  There are two clothing options: Shirt and Pants.  There are two LAYERS of clothing, which are “Skinny” and “Loose.”  Skinny would be for something like a tattoo, undies, or perhaps even something like tights, whereas the “Loose” layer would allow you to wear something OVER that.  As an example of how to wear things on your layers, I am choosing one of my tattoos that I made the appliers for last night.


Once you click on the applier, another dialogue pops up asking you if you want to put it on the Skinny or Looser layer.  Since this is for a tattoo, I chose skinny.

Tada!

But wait; here’s the best part about the mesh body:

Check out the sliders!  This mesh body moves with your shape.  It’s pretty awesome how it works because this means it will be more customizable than something like the Azz which is not fitted mesh.

Okay, so now another awesome aspect of the mesh body is the alpha layers.  I have to say, this has not been perfected yet and I wish you could use the alphas in smaller increments.  This will NOT work for every piece of mesh.  Trust me, there are plenty of things that I tried that just simply won’t work with this no matter how hard I try.  But for the most part, it’s pretty awesome.

Just as an example, I included the hud so you can see how you can alpha out different parts of your body.

As you can see, whatever I click on the hud, alphas my body out.  Therefore, when I want to wear mesh, I can do this pretty easily, such as I did here:

One thing I will note is that just as it is for ALL mesh, some adjustments to your shape may be necessary if you’re wearing mesh with this body.

As an example, if you find that your coochie is sticking out.. as weird as this sounds, play with your leg muscle slider.  9 times out of 10 that it will solve the problem (it has for me).

At any rate, I’d have to say that so far, it’s looking to be like a great product.  However, consider this a beta test.  I want to see some more updates first and I know skin designers too as well before we all start gung-ho creating for it.

But for 350L, why not!?

Hi lovelies!  Liquence has fiiiiii…i..i…iiiinally released some new hairs and they’re fabulous!  The one that I’ve chosen for you today caught my fancy in particular, though they’re all amazing and worth a demo and a buy!

Other than that, most of what I’m wearing is nothing that’s particularly new, although I do have to say this amazing skin that I picked up at the Cosmetics Fair is probably one of my favorite purchases lately.  And how sick are these crop tops from DAPPA? Yaaaaas hani!

When I feel down, I want you above me

Hi lovebugs!

Today is a special day, because it’s been a little while since I’ve been able to tear Landon away from tattoo making to blog with me.  I hope you’ll all enjoy what we’ve picked out for you.  Most of what I’m wearing is new at Kustom9 — I’m sure you’ll recognize it because some of it in particular is getting blogged to death (and for good reason), because some of your most favorite creators have put out some amazing things!

Please note: Little Bones released a hair called Temptation for the Rockabilly hair.  I would like to think that the new release at Kustom9 is the revamped version, because it is similar but not exactly the same, so make sure that even if you have the first version to go grab this newer one!

Maybe some things are that simple

I’m back again.. gosh I’m so productive on my day off!

I had to blog all my spoils from the Cutie Moon Fair.  I love all things Sailor Moon (I don’t know how you couldn’t), and thus I had to blog all the adorableness that I procured from this event.  This barely scrapes the surface of what I got, but I didn’t want to over-do it, so I hope you enjoy!

Before I get on with the picture I want to note that because of Ms. Elisa I was inspired to figure out how to wear different bangs with these Spellbound Hairs.  I’m not the biggest fan of “bangs” in general so I realized that I could make them transparent and wear bangs from other hairs.  Tonight I am wearing the bangs from the Chemistry Hair “Buttons” and I think it suits the hair very well!

You win or you die.

Hi my little ducklings!

I have a very special post in store for you today.  I had been waiting for the right time to make it, when I had enough time to take/edit/post all of these pictures, and it has finally arrived.

I have been a ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ ever since A Game of Thrones was published.  I have been reading George R. R. Martin’s books since about… I think I finally got A Game of Thrones in like 1998?  I was in high school, that’s all I know.  As you can imagine, considering it is now 2014, I waited over 10 years for his work to come to life on screen (thank you HBO!).  It truly thrills me to see how many people have embraced A Game of Thrones even if they’ve never read the books (as the series itself is very true to them).  Seeing all of these creators in Second Life dedicate so much time and energy to all things GoT related makes my heart palpitate!

So you can imagine how excited I was to find out that this event, The Secret Affair, would be solely dedicated to GoT.

I have put together three different looks for you to enjoy and I hope that you do.  Most of what I am wearing can be found at the event but whatever is not found there, credits will be given as always after the pictures 🙂

I can hardly breathe when your hands let go of me

So by the looks of my post you’d think The Hair Fair had come around.

This is not the case at all.

These are just *some* of the new releases you can find from some of my favorite hair designers on the grid right now.  Some of these are at events, which I will gladly detail for you below the picture.

All I can say is, all of these hair designers have amazing textures, options, and are overall just fantastic.

I do have to touch on one thing before I show you the pictures, however.  There is a new hair designer in town.  The alt of Story Ordinary (owner/creator of Poetica) is now dabbling in hair, and has come out with a bang!  Her new store, Spellbound, is offering some absolutely gorgeous hair.  The textures, color options, and general styles leave absolutely NOTHING to be desired.  Not a single criticism is there to be had on my end, so make sure you all check it out, join the VIP group, etc!  So far there are five new hairs to be had and trust me when I say you’ll want to fatpack all of them!

Now that that little rant is over, ON WITH THE PICTURES!

hairs

 

OKAY!  So, I will list all of the hairs I have pictured here from top to bottom and left to right! Here we go:

Row 1:  All hairs are from Spellbound and can be found in the mainstore.  They are:  Snowberry, Nahara, Medusa, MoonSugar, and Ellie

Row 2: Tableau Vivant (currently found at C88): Springer & Springflower // Moon: Chandler (currently at Kustom9), Still Cold & Sinner (currently found at C88)

Row 3: Little Bones: Take Everything, Ministry (both now at The Chapter Four), Limbs, & Gods and Monsters (coming tomorrow to 100 Block!)

As you can see there are like 500 hairs right now to choose from and all of them are simply amazing.

I had to dedicate a post JUST to this, so I hope you all enjoy.

I’m thinking it over

Hi darlings!

I have two posts for you today.  One in my proper layout, while the next will be quite impromptu, so stay tuned!

There are so many events in SL nowadays, I don’t even know how a person can keep up.  As a blogger, I try to blog items that come from a plethora of different events because I know that’s what all of you want to see, but mainly because creators pick and choose some pretty amazing items to release for all of these great events.  Specifically I am bringing you some newness today from events such as 100 Block, Fameshed, The Secret Affair, and Collab, but let’s not forget that The Big Show, Suicide Dollz, Kustom9, and some other fantastic events are also going on right now.

Anyway, I shall get on with the newness and hope you all enjoy!
