To Mesh or Not To Mesh – What a dilema! | a SECOND for Imagination

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?”

Drowning – LOTD #250

LOTD 250

Oh, sure, she looked normal.  Just a girl, walking down the street.

Why couldn’t anyone see her drowning?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve had some fun playing around with the last couple of LOTD pics.

I generally don’t do a lot of editing for many LOTD pics, because I want readers to see the items as they actually appear.

So it was nice to let my inner child out to play for a bit with filters and overlays and all the other new things I’ve learned. 😛

I’m also still loving the Genesis heads.  This look is the Angie head, picked up from a gacha machine.  A mesh head for $99L.  Can’t beat it!

I still have a few new looks to try out, so I’d better get busy!

She paused, something niggling at the back of her mind.

After a few moments, she shrugged, and continued on her way.

2016 has been a bit of a bear already.

Lots of ups and downs, and lots of changes – projects ending, new projects beginning.

One of my projects has been to get a new pose store going in SL.  I love taking pictures, but I often spend (waste) a lot of time looking for the ‘perfect’ pose.  (I do this when choreographing my dances as well!)

So I decided to make my own. 😛

I don’t have many items yet, but I’m slowly working on it.  I think one of my favorite (though exasperating) parts of this project has been making the vendor ads.

The name of the store is Prose Poses (check out the MP store here).  I don’t have an in-world location yet, but I hope to some time in the future.

If you do check it out, let me know – I’d love to hear your feedback!

For the vendors pics, I’ve been collecting mesh heads and using them in the pics for different looks.  I still have a few to try out, but I am loving the ability to change my appearance completely each time. 😀
