Now that I have assigned caregivers for my baby, it’s time to lounge in this gorgeous new release from The Secret Store. I’m wearing the Fawn Bodysuit & Cleo Lacey Vest, both available at Collabor88. I found the perfect wavy hair to go with this chill boho look, it’s the Avalon style from Exile.
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – Avalon hair
Pink Fuel – Kiera
The Secret Store – Cleo Lacey Vest, Fawn Bodysuit @ Collabor88
Mesh heads are probably the most expensive thing you can buy your avatar in SL; most of them cost over $5,000L. I don’t change my head often due to price (plus having to buy all new add-ons and skins), and the learning curve. All of the heads require a different shape and figuring out how the HUD works.
As you know, I have worn the LeLutka mesh heads almost exclusively since they came out. I saw Kavar using Genus Project heads a lot in his recent ads, and it looks amazing!!! Things I like about Genus Project: easy to modify shape, lots of skins available, options on HUD to adjust makeup opacity and colors, and I like how it looks on me. Things I don’t like: the HUD is confusing, there are two separate HUDs for settings and animations, animations are ugly (ugly is subjective, so I’ll say it’s not as great as LeLutka), no built-in eye control, no easy way to clear all makeups, no way to save looks unless I am missing it.
It would be more fun to change mesh heads if the price of obtaining a mesh head wasn’t so expensive! I didn’t think that Classic and Baby are all that much different, so I wish there were some type of discount like… buy one head, get additional ones for half price.
The Genus Project mesh head costs $5,500L. Kavar gifted me the Classic face, which I love! Then I found out that all of the skins made are for Baby! For the sake of wearing this Delina skin made by Pink Fuel, I also bought the Baby face. The skins made for Baby and Classic are not interchangeable. I found that the eyes and lips area don’t fit if the skin is not made for that particular head. So when you’re demoing skins, take note which head it is made for…. otherwise you’ll end up with lots of frustrations when modifying a shape for it.
Overall, I do recommend the Genus Project mesh heads. Change is refreshing. Change is fun. If Genus Project keeps improving their HUD and scripting, they will become one of my favorites, and perhaps yours too?
What I’m Wearing: Genus Project – Baby Face Pink Fuel – Delina (Fawn) Exile – Tara Teefy – Lia Dress (Gingham) Ingenue – Anna Heels
I just wish I had more time to blog, cos the things released in SL now are the best they have ever been. I’ve worn my dynamic SLink hands exclusively, and buying new nail polishes to add to my huge collection. I bought the new SLink ballerina style nails (@ Skin Fair), and it’s such a nice change from the default shapes. I can’t wait for more rounded nail tips!
Teefy released this adorable Simone Dress (@ N21); I love the pattern! I am pairing my outfit with the Asuka hair from Truth (@ Uber), and wearing the hat cos it has a shade of blue that matches perfectly with my dress.
This entire outfit screams kawaii! I love the new Kyoko hairstyle from Truth; it includes two bangs options and a face mask with color-changing HUD. I’m just thrilled when Teefy release a complete outfit (top & bottom) cos it’s guaranteed that I’ll love it. I don’t like when I have to find my own bottom or top, cos they don’t always fit well together. This Brooklyn top and Joey skirt from Teefy is super adorable, comes in a variety of colors and patterns to mix-and-match.
I am horrible about leaving my phone at home – like really horrible. This happened twice last week and a coworker of mine could not get why I really didn’t care! Sometimes being without a phone is freeing: No obsessive checking of social media or the news and no unwanted phone calls. Just…quiet.
Second Life is like that for me at times as well. You see I have this super secret alt that nobody knows – in fact she is still dressed in her noob clothes! So for those days when all I want to do is roam around looking at pretty places, I log her in. Peace and quiet and pretty pictures is all we need at times.
