For a little over a month, the SL grid has been buzzing about all of the new mesh products that have been and are going to be released. Recently, I purchased the Wasabi Pills “Aria” mesh hair but was still waiting on a mesh outfit to catch my eye before blogging. That’s where the Violent Seduction outfit called “La Morte Elf” comes into play, and since I’ve recently taken up video creation in SL, I can even demonstrate the outfit in action as seen in the video above.
"In dreams you can be anything."
The hair is actually one of my favorite things in my inventory now. It’s great to have something that actually moves with your body as your avatar bends through various poses. I can’t say that I’d totally give up sculpted flexi hair, but I will say that it’s a nice addition to an avatar’s closet.
"Live out your life as a warrior or a queen."
As for mesh clothing, I like it but it isn’t something I’m too crazy about yet. I love the detail that my sculpted prim attachments have, which is something mesh currently lacks. I was just pointed in the direction of a different mesh designer today so I’ll have to check their stuff out. Hucci is the name of the company and I hear their pieces include ruffles and the like, which I find exciting. Violent Seduction also has a lolita style dress that has ruffles. I demoed it and it was really cute but not something I’m currently looking for. I do recommend that you go try out their demos, however. Doesn’t hurt to window shop a bit ^^
"Command the world with the turn of a narrow, index finger,"
Mesh clothing has predetermined sizes so you may need to tweak your body shape a bit. I had no problems with my avatar but this particular shape is pretty rail thin. I’m not sure if I’ll have any problems with my curvier shapes.
"and watch each command stitch together at the seems."
Mesh hair may not fit your avatar exactly either. Make sure you try out demos before you buy because the hair may not fit your avatar. If it doesn’t fit, either resize your head or don’t purchase the hairstyle. You can’t resize mesh that is on your avatar’s body via the “edit” menu like you would a sculpty.
"There's nothing out of your reach."
I can’t wait to experience what many of SL’s creative minds will come up with next. Mesh will continue to get better over time and I’m sure the journey will be exciting!
