Fitted Mesh is Awesome!

1

My darlings, have you updated your Firestorm viewer yet?  If not, you may start to crash as fitted mesh (formerly known as “liquid mesh”) become more popular.  Apparently, if someone wears fitted mesh around avatars who are not running the latest viewer, he or she may crash.  I’ve only acquired two fitted mesh outfits so far, but I already prefer them to the old mesh items.  No more having to change my shape to a predetermined size (none of which actually matches my own body dimensions).  Tonight I want to show you my latest fitted mesh acquisition – DE Designs’ Thyri dress.

Oops!  I got caught in a downpour! See how my dress is just skin-tight? 😉  But seriously, the fit is amazing.  I had no idea my avi was so thin!  For a not-so-thin RL person, I fell in love with my little avi all over again. lol  Thyri comes in three colors – the purple/black shown here, as well as all black, and brown/black.  And if you can’t use fitted mesh yet, it also comes in regular mesh in 5 sizes.  Everything about the dress is just scrumptious.

My hair is from Tableau Vivant for Collabor88.  I love the style – different but not ridiculously so.  The pulled back, very loose pony can work with a variety of styles, and the hair tie is color change, of course.  How about my skin?  This is from (red)Mint.  It is!  It’s not just for RP’ers!  This beautiful skin is called Ivy, and it’s the Powder tone, makeup number 4.  (red)Mint does lots of different tones for each skin, and always includes at least a few fantasy tones.   Take a better look here…

I’m wearing my SLink hands and the tone matching with the skin was effortless since (red)mint has appliers for most mesh body parts.  Easy Peasy!  My beautiful nail appliers are again from ZOZ, which you’ll find has nail polish at many of the weekly and monthly events at great prices.  Check them out – they’re really beautiful!  My piercings are, once again, from the inimitable Haus of Darcy, who makes the most bad-ass piercings in SL!  My jewelry is from another fave of mine – LouLou&Co.  None of the jewelry is new, just beautiful pieces I had in my massive (160K) inventory.  LouLou and HoD are two of my “go-to” designers when I’m looking for the right accessory.  Finally, my boots are from Lapointe & Bastchild, another of my favorite designers, and again, they’re not new.  Ok, one more closeup, and that’ll be enough for tonight.

Hello, lovely ones.  I’ve been busy both in RL and SL lately.  The marking period came to an end in RL, so I was busy grading; as for SL, it’s been hunts and fairs and festivals – oh my!  One cool outfit I found in a hunt is from Souled Out for the Mysteries of the Sea Hunt.  I know – not exactly a mermaid outfit, is it?  That’s why I had to nab it and show it to you!  The outfit consists of the mesh dress *and* the boots – what a bargain for only L$5!  And you have until April 10th to find it.  I also spent some time doing the Black Crowes Hunt (how could I resist?), and picked up the really nice choker (among other jewelry in the folder) at Adoness.  Cost?  L$10.  You have just until March 25th to grab the goodies in this hunt.

My next outing was to the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair – soooooo much good stuff there!  I picked up the awesome wings from Arise and the nicely crafted legchain from Death Row Designs.  But I wasn’t finished shopping!  Of course not.  There’s always more to grab in SL, so next up was the Skin Fair.  Isn’t this skin from Morphine just lovely?  If you’re looking for a “normal” skin – for non-roleplayers, non-goths, etc., then my pictures here don’t do Morphine’s work justice because, believe me, the skin is gorgeous.  I’m wearing Morphine’s new-for-Skin Fair Ghail skin with the add-on lipstick.  I’m also wearing lovely eyes from Morphine as well, in my favorite color – pale grey.

Truth came out with new hair recently, and I had to have this one – I love it when Truth does unusual styles!  This is Maisy (in black, of course), worn with the included buns.  They are optional, however, if you’d rather not wear them (nice touch).  In the next pic, you can see the lovely blush on the Morphine skin.  Usually, I don’t like skins with blush added; I usually find they’re too “cute” for me, but Morphine does it right here – love it!  My awesome piercings are from the inimitable Haus of Darcy.  This is an older set called Provocation, which I love because there are little unholy crosses on the lip piercings.  Provocation comes with a chest piercing as well, which you’ll notice on my chest right below the Adoness choker.  If you’re new to HoD, be advised there are three floors of older piercings at reduced prices.  Trust me, you’ll find some real bargains there for the quality of these piercings.
