Hello SL! I haven’t written a review in a long time, but I felt inspired to write something about this new Toni Mesh Head from Fiore. Fiore is the new brand for mesh heads from seasoned SL creator, Sanya Bilavio, of Vive Nine and Ryvolter.
I’m a fan of mesh heads when they’re well done and attractive. If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I raved about the mesh heads from LOGO and Snow Rabbit. I’ve tried on other mesh heads, and own faces from SLink Visage and The Shops. I didn’t review them, for a number of reasons, but the main one is that I didn’t find them cute enough to wear.
I tried on the Fiore mesh heads (I’m wearing Angelic), and was impressed with a number of things that they had to offer, despite some obvious flaws that should have prevented me from making a purchase. The price is $2,900 for a face, which is reasonably priced when compared with other mesh heads on the market. I also liked the face shape, the HUD, and the slow blinking animation!
This is the Fiore HUD. As you can see, it’s sleek and sexy. This HUD is not only well-designed, but it is easy to use and offers lots of customization features (similar to LOGO’s). I liked that all of this is included with the purchase, along with appliers for Maitreya, and SLink bodies.
7 facial expressions included! These expressions seem to change the mouth and brows slightly, but the eyes remain the same. It would be nice to have closed-eyes, winking, and a few other eye options in a future update.
For version 1, I think this release is promising. The price is reasonable, and the product is nice, except for a few things that should be fixed in a future update. What are they? This is just MY personal list of things I’d like to see improved — an “OFF” option for the hair base, different positions for eyes, improve the gray shading on the forehead, and update the neck seam to fit/blend better.
I am wearing the Maitreya Lara mesh body in this post. I’m still waiting for Pink Fuel appliers for this body, before I wear it regularly. Right now I’m wearing the SLink Physique body exclusively.
Overall, do I recommend the Fiore mesh head? Yes. It seems like the creator is already working on addressing the issues mentioned in my post, so this product can only get better with time.
Did you try the new Fiore mesh heads? Let me know in the comments! I know I haven’t written a real review in ages, so I would love to know what you think about this review!
