Secrets

Blush

It's time to make good on my promise and talk a little about mesh heads. The mesh head adaptation isn't one that has been easy for me. I'm kinda am going back on my word by even stumbling into mesh head territory, but I realized that if I didn't try...I would be left behind. I always feared that getting a mesh head would mean that I would lose my individually and the little things that made me unique in SL would fall to the side. I did try a few things to give myself some unique aspects..I'll mention them below.

It seems more and more designers have geared their new release skins to work exclusively for mesh heads. This made shopping events I loved to visit a little frustrating because I couldn't purchase the newest skin. I did however do the following for months before getting my mesh head. I collected every freebie or low cost applier that I could get my hand on. Even though I had no intention at the time to actually get a mesh head I wanted to be prepared in the event I did.

I had several talks with my SL friends about mesh heads so I had a lot of opinions and thoughts to take into consideration when choosing one. Above all, I took my time, I test drove several heads and skin appliers before making the final purchase. Mesh heads are not cheap, I think mine cost about 6k in Lindens. Quite a hefty price to pay. So if you are thinking about making the transition to a mesh head I strongly encourage you to take your time in order to avoid buyer's remorse. (which might happen)

Which head and skin combo did I pick? Well,  let me tell you. I stuck with my old faithful and trusted skin designer, Glam Affair. Glam Affair imho, makes the best skins in SL. Everything is pretty much flawlessly desinged. Glam Affair skins also are 100 percent compatible with my mesh body from Maitreya. For me, Catwa seemed like the only choice when it came to picking a base mesh head, here's why. Catwa seemed to be the most popular, meaning LOTS of skin designers and appliers had been made for this skin. Also, there are Animation Huds that are included in your purchase which allow some emotion to be shown. I've been having fun playing with them so far.

So what are some things that I did to make my SL face slightly more unique?  I used appliers. Two key things that I feel are a trademark on my SL face are freckles and eyeliner. I wanted to keep these things when making the transition to mesh, but was worried I was going to lose them since Glam Affair didn't have an applier for these two options. What I did was ask around. My friend Daallee was able to steer me into the right direction and provided me with a link to Izzie's appliers and I found both freckles and eyeliner. These appliers can be totally removed and added via a HUD and I feel help make me a little more unique. You can also choose different SL mesh eyes and lashes to enhance your SL Face.

The bottom line when it comes to purchasing a mesh head is DON'T rush into it. Take your time and try many different skins, mesh heads and appliers. There is a way to get your unique style through. You just have to work a little to uncover it.

Politik


I just got a new mesh head and while I'm really enjoying it; I'm not going to give the details of the head or my review until another posts. I'm still working through if I like having a mesh head or not. It feels incomplete, and not totally myself, I suppose it will take a period of adjusting. Frustration has recently gotten the best of me, so my apologies this will be a little soapbox rant. I promise it will be a more structured post next time. 

As a reminder, Please....please don't forget the wonderful diversity we have in our Second Life community. SL is global not just regional...This last week I have seen things that haven't quite sat well with me. 

Every avatar has a real person attached to them. Show some compassion and leave the politics OUT of SL. Don't manipulate, take advantage or pull on people's heart strings. Be Genuine in your actions. Don't stomp on people's fun, views or plans. Think before speaking...How would I react if I heard someone telling someone I loved or cared about the words I'm about to speak? if you would be upset perhaps you should not say anything. Above All....Just be nice.

Musical Inspiration: Cold Play: Politik  

"look at earth from outer space
Everyone must find a place
Give me time and give me space
Give me real, don't give me fake
Give me strength, reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Give me time, give us a kiss
Tell me your own politik"
