This Mesh Rustic Knit Cardigan from Mon Tissu is very pretty! I’m feeling so spoiled by the ease of wearing a single mesh attachment, that I don’t know if I can go back to a sweater with multiple attachment pieces to adjust. I don’t really care at this point, how I’m rezzing to “everyone else” that is not on a mesh-enabled viewer, get with the times, cos mesh is HOT.

I did notice this weekend while trying on a bunch of mesh things, that its not really possible to layer a mesh tank top underneath a texture/or regular sculpted prims jacket. Or wearing a mesh shirt tucked into pants.. its just not possible. For people who thought that texture clothing would be replaced by mesh, I think it won’t, in fact, we probably need more basic under things! I would love some more texture tanks, bra, panties, etc, to wear underneath my new texture clothes (even though a sometimes it’s hidden by alpha).

What I’m Wearing:

Exile – Miu (Roots) Swiss
Laqroki – Ebba (Fair) 01

Magic Nook – Moon River Necklace (Silver)
Mon Tissu – Rustic Knit Cardigan (Rigged Mesh) Gray

    Lately… I’ve been finding myself more drawn the the official viewer because of Mesh.
    And I’m a regular Beta Firestorm user (No mesh πŸ™ )
    Mesh has got to be my top addiction in SL right now.

      Ellie, I`m using Firestorm 3.0.1 (Firestorm-Beta-Mesh). I`m dressed in mesh from top to toe atm πŸ˜€ It`s working better than the official viewer for me right now. I usually use SL official beta releases.

    Ugh so jealous. I’d like to use mesh, but teleporting is completely screwed up on any and all mesh viewers I try.

    Great look though! πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to catch up with the times, truly can’t. *Crosses fingers for next Firestorm release*

    I for one can’t wait for LL to fix the NVIDIA 400-series mesh incompability properly. It works fairly well on the Developer viewer, too bad nothing else does. Stupid LL, I want to be able to use mesh too -.-‘

    I grabbed this cardigan as a soon as Celoe opened there doors! I just absolutely fell in love with it (along with half of the shop I also dragged home… it was an expensive day) However, I agree about there not being enough to wear underneath! It’s not just with shirts and such but I feel as Mesh becomes more popular, we are going to see a lot more Jackets and Cardigans being released. Question is, how well will they work with not only sculpted shirts (and other mesh shirts which you also cant wear with them) but poofy skirts? We’re going to be back at square one with sculpties =(
    Tasks for LL to undertake with Mesh:
    Allow it to change to ALL body modifications, not just height and width but body fat, breast size, butt size…
    Allow Mesh to react to other mesh items? So a Jacket can be worn OVER a shirt, skirt or Trousers can move over / under boots and shoes…

    Kinda not going to happen I know, but hey, it’s nice to dream that maybe in 10 years time we’ll be a step closer to these ideals!

    I agree on the mesh/texture clothing. As much as I like the many cool aspects of mesh items, I still need texture clothing for laggy events and layering. Not to mention, we can only wear one alpha at a time, as far as I know, so it’s a bit inconvenient. Anyway, your dark hair and bright lipstick is looking really great in this outfit. The contrast is nice.

    You’re very talented with shapemaking. I was originally going to ask about demo shapes. Your pictures are beautiful, but because one’s shape is so personal, many people are very careful about buying them, especially higher end shapes. But then I looked at your last post and noticed that you don’t respond to demo inquiries, so I guess it’s a lost cause, though I’m definitely curious why. Maybe someday you’ll tell us. πŸ™‚

      Cheshire, if the viewer you are using supports it, just right click from inventory and choose, `Add`. It’s the same as clothing/tattoo layers.

    Is the bag available IRL as well? πŸ˜‰ Gorgeous!

    Gaawd, hahah, mesh is irresistable for sure, I am starting to get a collection my self to, even though i say i wont wear if it not resizeable i still do, the items i am getting are just to nice πŸ™‚

    and i was just thinking about grey boots the other day to, hahahha

    Well, I have to say that I ADORE mesh, but even though it looks great on me, I had to stop wearing it because every single person (well, at least 99% of the time) ims me and tells me that my feet look like boxes, or my hair is a box, or that I’m naked.

    I love mesh, but I really wish that more people could SEE it. THere are so many die hard phoenix users out there that will refuse to ever use a v3 viewer, and because of that, I choose not to wear mesh just to avoid the onslaught of IMs saying i dont look right.

    It’s a great outfit….I want it SO bad, but I hate the IMs and complaints about my av not rezzing properly from those pesky phoenix users so much that I wont be wearing this much if I did buy it πŸ™

    • Lisanna

      I will not avoid mesh cuz of some stubborn people stuck in 2010. πŸ˜‰ I’m just making sure I’m wearing panties under my mesh jeans!

    I am on Dolphin viewer 3 now, it works better than the official viewer and Firestorm, for me at least.
    I really hope that more content creators start using mesh as they do sculpts now. I am so in love with the dresses and skirts that has a rigged mesh skirt prim. I get the mix’n match freedom that I am used to. I would love to see system clothes with only mesh arms and a rigged mesh jacket part. That way, people would not hate that mesh forces them to change their shapes. It feels so clunky to use jackets with stiff sculpts now.
    Phoenix users has to be the most stubborn people of all, and I don’t believe for a second that they haven’t heard about mesh now. Haven’t they logged in since August? They just send IMs to mock people and bully them to change.

      If someone tries to bully me cos of my look, they better prepare to be ARed for harassment!

    I wear my mesh regardless of what people say. If they can’t see it, so be it. Im not going to limit my SL expriences to please others. Gogo, you look lovely as always! I’ve been your fan and blog reader since 2007.

    The only girl who IMed me to bother me with my mesh clothes was wearing a facelight…

    Singularity is a viewer that’s similar to Phoenix and has mesh. Very light. Might wanna try it.
