For the past twelve or so hours I have been going crazy over these adorable, mesh, petite avatars by Fallen Gods Inc (see images below). They are absolutely fantastic and everything I would want in a mini avatar that is realistically proportioned and well textured! I loved them so much, in fact, that two of my best friends and I got together to tell the tale of a wandering girl who finds two very unexpected prisoners while out in the forest ^^
…But I’ll let the pictures tell you the story. I’ll use my words to tell you about the avatars themselves! First off, they’re quite tiny as you can see in the images. Cora used her full size avatar so we could have a size comparison that was visually interesting. Cora is about average in height for an SL female. When Mhyja and I first picked up our avatars (thanks for the gift, Mhyj!) we weren’t sure if many things in our inventory would fit. At $L1,500 per avatar set some people may get a little nervous. After all, we want an avatar that we can customize. Well, I have GREAT news! You can indeed use many of the items in your inventory just so long as they can be modified and sized down.
If you’re obsessed with hair (Mhyja and I both are) you’ll probably want something custom on your little characters. Mhyja and I both found different brands that seem to be working for us. I used a beautiful style from booN that I tinted to two different colors (buy platinum and then go color crazy) and Mhyja decided upon a sexy style by Exile. If you’re not in the mood to resize anything, Wasabi Pills did team up with Fallen Gods Inc to make an adorable mesh mini style that fits your petite right out of the box. It’s priced very reasonably. Mhyja and I both picked it up and it is indeed very cute.
If you get one of these little avatars, start looking for prim attachments in your inventory. I used this sexy flower bikini by Severed Garden. The avatars come with both PG and anatomically correct bodies so you can just use the PG version, like I did, if you want to hide your naughty bits. Speaking of which, the black bodysuit Mhyja is wearing is by Fallen Gods Inc and comes with the Petite Dracos set. On my computer, the bodysuit vanished when I had my graphics on ultra with shadows. It may just be me but I’m giving you a heads up in case you run into it too. If you do, just take two identical images of your avatar, one with shadows on and one off. Layer the images in Photoshop and then you can just use a layer mask or simple selection and cut to remedy the issue. There may be a way to fix it in the viewer too but I’m not sure (Phoenix Firestorm). If you know a way, please leave me a comment. I love to hear tips ^^
A note on wings: both Mhyja and I aren’t using the wings that came with our avatars. The wings that are included in the petites packs are beautiful but Mhyja wanted to use her custom demon attire that she’s been building for BunnyStar and I’ve been dying to use these JOMO wings ever since I bought them a couple months ago. It’s amazing how much you can customize these little ladies! We even added prim eyes and eyelashes!
If you’re thinking about purchasing a set, I recommend it for sure! I already own both the Crystals pack and the Elves pack. They’re a great addition to any SL avatar lover’s collection and a creative challenge for any fashionista. Go out there and live big in a tiny package! ^^
