The mesh head debate rages on, as more and more creators release mesh heads (for guys as well), and skin creators are slowly catching up, coming out with appliers for the various heads.
I’ve drooled over many of the Catwa heads, but I have yet to make a purchase. For now, I’m content with my Lotte and Simone Lelutkas, my LOGO Alex, and my various Genesis Lab heads (I think I have around 13 of them now). I love GL heads, not only because they are gorgeous, but because they are often put in gachas, which means if you’re lucky, you can score a mesh head for a mere $99L. Steal!!!
Read PurpleButterfly Lykin’s post below about her experience with purchasing a mesh head:
“I’ve always held the view that mesh heads look a tad on the freaky side. That they often weren’t an improvement on the base avatar most people had carefully crafted. To be honest, a part of me still thinks this way. Some mesh heads do look strange, maybe because they represent to me a higher degree of falseness given they are so perfectly aligned?”
Then I saw an ad for a new mesh head from Logo – the Alex.
The look of this head seems much more natural to me, and something I could see myself wearing.
A head that I could feel like myself in.
I hurried over to the store and tried the demo, which I did like very much.
Unfortunately, it currently only works with the Logo skins, which I don’t own.
So – no go for me. 😦
I did see on a forum where there may be appliers for the head coming shortly.
If that is true, I will have to think long and hard about whether to buy one.
I keep secretly hoping that Maitreya is working on one, since I already own their mesh body.
Then it would be made to work with my body (I would hope!), and I wouldn’t have to worry about more appliers and skins in order to use the head.
Whatever your position on mesh heads, I wish that people would stop making assumptions about those who disagree with their opinions.
(I wish for the same thing in RL, and it doesn’t happen there either, unfortunately.)
If you like mesh heads and you wear them, great!
I’m happy that you found something you like and enjoy.
But don’t assume that because I have said I don’t like mesh heads that I am stupid, poor, or lazy.
Remarks like those have nothing to do with the actual issue, which is people’s opinions of mesh heads.
I think it’s the personal attacks like those that upset me the most – just because someone has an opinion that differs from yours doesn’t mean that they are stupid, and what on earth does their financial situation have to do with anything?
Let’s hope that everyone can take a step back and cooler heads can prevail. (See what I did there? 😛 )
On a related note, Maitreya has come up with a genius idea for dealing with the different alpha cuts necessary for different clothing, which I hope fervently that designers begin to adopt.
Imagine being able to wear an item of clothing and have the clothing automatically pick the right alphas for your mesh body.
It’s not perfect, but it’s sure a lot easier than what I’m doing now!
