Ok so, I’ve finally gone and done it. I finally got a mesh body.
I got a bunch of demos, tried a variety and finally settled on the Physique Mesh Body by SLink. I like the body quite a bit, I already have the feet and hands, and I trust that the body will work for me. I found that I could play with the SL sliders and adjust various things to make it as close to my original shape as possible (already pretty much a standard medium). I already had the Lara Hurley applier for my favorite skin, so that worked too. I realized a couple of things as I started taking pictures of my hot new body (because let’s face facts..all bodies in SL are hot). I would be spending a lot less time in photoshop fixing ragged edges on my avatar. This can only be a good thing. Clothing FITS me better. Siddean provides free updates. In other words, it’s all good, I can hardly go wrong. I thought that the price was reasonable! And I’m already so far behind the curve on mesh that it was time to just do it. I don’t know if I’ll involve myself with Mesh heads, but almost certainly NOT until the day they become editable. So about the outfit. I’ve had the pants and shoes for a while, and probably have worn them before in a post. It’s the top I’m in love with. Made by a new to me designer, Just Because, it fits wonderfully, and I love the color combo. I expect to see great things from this designer in the future. Anywho, I took a whole series of shots that you can find on my Flickr, and as always, outfit credits are below the pics.
