In previous posts, when speculating on what ‘SL2.0’ will be like, several people voiced the opinion that the new platform will be heavily populated by mesh content creators – people who are well-versed in the various programs necessary to create mesh.
I don’t know whether it will be or not.
But I have wondered if the advent of mesh has had some unintended effects.
Because mesh is not easy to produce (specifically, mesh clothing), it seems that more and more creators are turning to full perm templates for their creations.
Perhaps this was the case before mesh as well, I don’t know.
I belong to several full perm mesh creator groups and so I see their new releases.
One of the most popular is Meli Imako.
Recently, the ‘Rockabilly Coat’ was released.
It’s a cute coat/dress.
I guess that’s why it’s so popular.
The full perm version is $250L.
Not a bad price for a full perm mesh item.
Seems many other creators thought so as well.
I did a quick search, and found these:
It’s a full perm outfit and is intended to be changed and resold.
And it’s a cute dress.
But it’s everywhere.
There’s a winter coat that I see everywhere as well.
So I started to wonder.
With (seemingly) less people actually creating new items, especially given the complexities of mesh (and being able to create mesh well), are there actually less choices?
Will we eventually all end up wearing the same outfits, just in different colors?
(Just FYI, the prices of these dresses shown in the pics ranged anywhere from $60L to $200L – so it pays to shop around. 😛 )
