Continuing on my quest for more mesh body parts, I’ve added a few more at the start of this year. The mesh breasts are my new prized possessions. I have to admit, even though I don’t wear them that often, I am quite fond of them. They make me feel very feminine and sultry. I keep them on the smaller side than most do, but they are definitely fun to play around with. I recently did a detailed blog post about them on my blog here. A few days ago I also tried on some mesh ears which are very nice as well. Also in this picture I have mesh hair, mesh hands, and the all new mesh jewelry release from Zaara.

I’m starting to wonder if I would ever consider replacing my whole av with a mesh permanently. I’m not sure if I would be able to as I’m quite attached to my face but I guess time will tell. Right now, I’m having lots of fun experimenting.

  1. Hi Berry! I just spent some time with a mesh avatar designer on Saturday, and, well, uh, I’ll just say it… we both got naked – OMG – I felt like a neanderthal! All her, you know, parts, are so beautiful – hahaha, my fingers and toes look like Picasso cubist distortions!

    It’s funny, if one is getting so many mesh parts to “fix” their avatar it does beg the question, shouldn’t we just go get mesh avatars. Interesting that you said your face is what holds you back, because if you think about it, Zindra aside, SL was sort of designed to, well, Ruth also aside, designed to have a pretty decent looking face… and then clothes! So when you wear nice mesh dresses and shoes, except for the whole desperate-need-of-a-manicure thing, you really don’t see all those “parts” anyway.

    Still, when you do get naked, the differences are dramatic – when I move my arm I have giant polygons sticking out my back where a scapula should be… her back was perfect. So if you want to be naked, or nearly naked, a mesh body is a really nice idea. But if you want to wear clothes (or if you’re a clotheshorse, not that *I* know anyone who is, of course) then a mesh body is a lot less important AND “system” clothes won’t fit it. You might be able to use prim clothes but that’s pretty messy too. So you’re kind of stuck with the skin and clothes that the one designer makes. And for many the joy of SL is the thousands of designers that you can choose from.

    I’ve never tried Petites, but as I understand it, the designer who made that original mesh body gave it to many other designers so that they could all make clothes that would fit it, and therefore Petites now are a huge and thriving fashion ecosystem with many many designers to choose from.

    1. Oh I would love to see and try a full mesh avatar or even just a mesh body. The bodies we have no leave much to be desired but you are right, once you get all the mesh clothing on, there’s not much that can be seen of it.

      I actually have tried petites and do have my own petite av, which I played around with for a while and hung out at the Petites Kingdom. It’s quite the blooming community they have going there. It would be nice if someone who actually created a full sized mesh avatar shared the body so other designers can create things for it.

      I think it’s still only been about a year and a half for mesh and we still have a long way to go. Once the deformer is here and people start getting even more creative, we’ll definitely be seeing completely different Second Life avatars in the near future.

  2. Fantastic Berry! I love your chiaroscuro lighting and I’m SO jealous of your parts! 🙂 haha, no, not the cleavage, the hands! I feel so much shame when I look at my dishpan hands. Must invest in some nice mesh gloves to hide my secret shame!

    1. lol @ dishpan hands. I do admit, even though I own the mesh hands, I don’t break them out as often as I should. I just change skins so often re-tinting them each time is quite the pain.
