Up, Up, and Away

Up, Up, and Away

I found a pretty basic t-shirt on Marketplace today, but I love the fun & colorful print, so I bought it. This t-shirt isn’t well made and it doesn’t even have sculpted or mesh prims, but that didn’t stop me. It was cheap, cute, and I’m happy wearing it just once (or twice!).

So many people have said that they’re only purchasing mesh items going forward, but I think there’s still room in SL for inexpensive cute things, and I hope that never changes.

Speaking of inexpensive and cute things… check out these new eyes from Aphotic Gloom!

    I like a lot of mesh clothes, but I still love a lot of my prim shoes & clothes. I think there’s room for both. I don’t think mesh will replace prim hair, because so far it hasn’t incorporated flexi hair (not even sure if it can, little as I know about it). So far, my favorite mesh items have been Mon Tissu Westbury mini and Oxford skirts. That’s because they incorporate mesh with texture clothing, so it’s very easy to fit your avatar perfectly, without having to adjust your shape. I hope other clothing creators use mesh the same way, with texture layers.

    Eh, I have to say I’ll wait for improvement on mesh clothes, but if it’s cute and it fits I’ll buy it. Other than that I don’t find a many a mesh outfit sutiable to my av’s shape. It’s just like the other clothes though. Sometimes you find ones that fit and look good on your av and others you don’t.

    It’s always a win-lose in the battlefield of fashion.

    *Btw…love the top!*

    I agree with you both. There are creators who do system texture clothing extremely well and I would hate to lose that. To me, SL fashion is an art form and like any other art, there are different mediums to express your creativity. Mesh is just another tool in the artists toolbox.
