If you’re like me, you don’t want your SL too perfect. A slight feeling of quirkyness to your online experience is more your style.

So what do you get the girl who wants her virtual world a bit artsy and hand-drawn? Why, the new Gemini skin from [ a.e.meth ], of course!

[ a.e.meth ] - Gemini Skin

The Gemini skin set from [ a.e.meth ] comes with four system skin shades, PLUS an Omega applier hud. All Omega-friendly heads and bodies will be able to wear this skin.

Please try the demo before buying! You can purchase the full package here or at the mainstore for 250L.

A note: The Gemini skin [edit: we tested it on Catwa and it LOOKS GREAT]. It looks amazing on Lelutka but I haven’t received their dev kit yet (they’re slow to distribute and god knows if I’ll even get picked) It favors Logo heads and looks good on Slink.

I will begin porting this skin to the Kemono bodies next. If you wear another mesh head and want me to try and make an applier for that, please let me know in the comments!

Lipsticks and makeup coming up for all heads now. Thanks!

Did you know that mesh heads have been around for three years? I blogged about the first LOGO Infinity Chloe mesh head back in November 2012. I’m not surprised that they’ve been around for this long, yet residents were slow to embrace mesh heads due to a number of factors. Prior to the introduction of mesh bodies, appliers for skin were only available for individual body parts. The mesh heads that were available, did not offer kits for skin designers to create appliers, so it lacked mass appeal. With the availability of skin appliers, I started seeing more residents embrace them and the coverage for all things mesh body and mesh heads expanded.

I embrace mesh heads from brands that delivered pretty faces, yet I find myself always going back to my default SL face. I was able to make the mesh heads ‘me’ but the novelty wore off once I felt that my avatar and photos were indistinguishable from dozens of others in SL. The latest LOGO Alex v3.0 update delivers so much customization (OMEGA tattoo makeups!), that I feel will benefit mesh heads wearers and help set these doll faces apart. You should read about all the new updates, there are too many new awesome features to mention.

I predict that within a year or two, there will be so many mesh heads (and skin appliers) that it will be impossible to tell that someone is wearing a mesh head, or which brand it came from. For me, the thing that will put one mesh head above another is the efficient scripting and beautiful expressive emotions. My favorite head is from LOGO, due to the dozens of different combinations of expressions that I can create by mixing and matching the eyes and mouth. Other mesh heads have nice features too, but for me, LOGO is definitely the most fun to wear.

For this review, I am wearing the Aria skin applier by Lara Hurley. I haven’t worn Lara skins in a very long time, but mesh heads have definitely gotten me to try brands that I don’t normally wear. I’ve observed that with the recent interest in mesh heads, lots of older skin brands have seen a revived interest in their skins.

For some reason, I wrote a novel today, so let’s end this post with a question that I have for you guys. Do you have a favorite mesh head and skin combination? Let me know in the comments and I will check it out! :)

What I’m Wearing:

Lara Hurley – Aria (Pale) skin applier
Truth Hair – Amoret

SLink Physique Hourglass

SLink Physique Hourglass

I’ve always been happy with my SLink Physique body, but some residents wanted more curves and thicker thighs, etc. The newest  SLink Physique Hourglass body delivers ample curves and is noticeably thicker. You’ll see this body reviewed many times, so I’ll make this short and sweet.

Out of the box, the Hourglass body on my shape is way too curvy for my taste. I find the waist to hip ratio too extreme, but some residents seem to favor this look. With three slider tweaks (Waist, Love Handles, Breast Size), I was able to adjust my shape to something more moderate that still looks curvy without being extreme. As you can see, I am still my usual size, with slightly thicker thighs, which are lovely!

SLink Physique Hourglass

The new HUD is amazing, cos you can now toggle various sections of the body on/off, without having to click many parts individually.

Let me know if you’ve tried the new SLink Physique Hourglass body, and if you will be switching to it! I haven’t decided what I will do yet, but I will spend some more time tweaking the body so the proportions are my idea of well-balanced.

What I’m Wearing:

Nothing, lol.
Pink Fuel Skin
Truth Hair – Foxy
Ingenue – Mara Flats (Latte)


LeLutka mesh head

One of the largest feedback that I’ve seen about the Lelutka mesh heads is that they’re too pouty. The latest update allows your favorite Lelutka mesh heads to smile, part lips, and express herself with more than just the pout. I forgot to take a picture of the HUD, but you can view it on Sasy’s blog and see all the different faces too.

I am wearing the Aria face today, something I have not worn before in my previous coverage of LeLutka mesh heads. I think this face is a lot closer to Gogo’s face than the others, the face shape is really round and feels like ‘me’. If I could adjust the eyes shape to be rounder, it would almost be perfect. I am wearing skin by Glam Affair, it really suits these mesh heads.

Are you as stubborn about skins as I am? I will usually wait for appliers from my favorite brand (can you guess what brand that is?) before committing to a new mesh head. However, I’m flexible about certain mesh heads cos I know that not all brands will look good on every mesh face shape. So that’s something to keep in mind when you’re shopping for mesh heads. Buy it if it looks good with skins that are available!

I wear SLink’s Physique body almost exclusively, so I haven’t noticed that there is a fit issue or that not a lot of brands are offering mesh clothing for Maitreya’s Lara body until this past week. You can read about the issue over at Sophee Mojo’s blog. I’m not a creator so I’m pretty vague about what “weights” are, but apparently it’s a pretty important file and creators need it to make clothing fit right for any body. Not too many creators have the full kit for Maitreya – just 24 brands for mesh clothing, according to the official list. If the brand is not listed, it’s safe to assume that they’re just guessing the right fit, so clothing for Maitreya’s Lara may or may not fit well.

I noticed that issue today while wearing this dress from Fishy Strawberry (not listed), the straps doesn’t really fit around the shoulders. As I said above, I always wear SLink’s body and thankfully, my favorite brands are already listed, but if yours isn’t and you wear Maitreya’s Lara body, that’s something to keep in mind when shopping, always demo!

What I’m Wearing:

LeLutka – Echo Hair
LeLutka – mesh Head (Aria) v1.2, Glam Affair appliers
Fishy Strawberry – Martia Dress (Maitreya) Hazelnut



Have I ever told you about the time I met the guy who plays Jason Voorhees?

I was at a comic convention irl selling artwork about two years ago. After putting my gear up when selling hours ended, I heard there was a special horror movie showing–and I was going to be late for it! So, I ran towards the section of the hotel it would be hosted in.

That’s when I saw a really tall guy looking lost by the stairs. He asked me where the movie would be showing because he was late for it too. I said, “Yep, I’m headed that way!”, so we walked together. I talked about how scary it was to drive around at night and how being lost on a street with no lighting whatsoever was “true horror”.

He just chuckled at me.

We arrived at the auditorium and I took my seat. The man went to the front, where it was announced that he was the actor who played Jason Voorhees. I felt silly but soon we all settled in to watch the film and have fun.

The actor who played Michael Myers was there as well. Someone brought in a bottle of whiskey for him, and “Jason” walked around pouring drinks for those who wanted some. Because the theatre was small, there weren’t that many people there and we had a lot of fun.

And that was how I made corny horror jokes to someone who plays a well-known psycho killer (and then he served me whiskey! lol).


The dress I’m wearing is from PEQE, and is part of her set for Tag Gatcha. I also wanted to show off this awesome hat from Katatonik (available at Gen-Neutral event) and the gorgeous twisted tree behind me, which you can find at We <3 Roleplay. The tree comes with multiple sits and animations, and is great for placing in your woods. I put mine on my home parcel!

These teeth are also available at Gen-Neutral from EXE.cute. They work with mesh heads pretty well and regular heads too. Just place them where you want on your mouth and you’ll look like you have fangs!

What I’m Wearing

(EXE) Teeth – Long Fang Close
katat0nik – Old Hat
Junbug – Fur Stole (Silver)
Exile – Out of the Ruins
Maxi Gossamer – Widdershins Earrings (Cross and Skulls)
PEQE – Vamp Cape (Black, RARE)
PEQE – Vamp Dress (RARE)
