Wowmeh Mesh Body Review feat. TSG (The Good The Bad and The Ugly)

Previously posted @ BulletProofBish.

Hey peoplepants, its that time again. Yet another mesh attachment release so its time once again for the review! Now, if you remember when I review things I do it 100% honestly, its not meant to offend or put down anyone nor is it meant to belittle any creator’s hard work. But I want to be able to give you all opinions and views before you spend your lindens. 

So here we go Wowmeh review take 1!

The good: 

We always start off with the good.

1) Its made of fitted mesh! With this new update release this body has now gotten a lot of attention that it didn’t have before. This means that you can wear the body with whatever shape you are currently wearing and adjust the body itself to your liking. Which means you can change the proportions of the Wowmeh body by changing the proportions of your avatar’s shape. 

2) Free updates for life! If you’ve purchased the Wowmeh body this means that any new updated versions of the body is yours and will be delivered to you free of charge. 

3) Its pretty! No more with those weird butt shadows or odd zigzags that tend to happen when you move or attempt different poses. This is explained under the fitted mesh plus. The proportions are beautiful and well shaped, I find myself staring at my own butt quite a lot. Haha. This is a great plus for photographers who use photoshop. It means a lot less time using your liqification tool. 

4) Very affordable. If you find yourself wanting to use the mesh body NOW is the time to get it. The price has already been raised once however it is still very cheap for a full body mesh attachment. Its currently a promo price though so I expect it will go up once this promotion period is over. Get it while its cheap!

5) Easy to use appliers. If you’re a designer creating appliers for this item is no hassle and you designer kit also comes free with your purchase of the Wowmeh body.

7) You can wear this body with your own avatar’s head! The problem (or some people’s problem) with facial mesh attachments is that everyone can tend to look the same, however with the wowmeh body you can keep your avatar’s own unique face, still buy your favorite skins and adjust your features to your heart’s content. 

8) A really, really, really thorough note card. Every possible question you could have is on the notecard, its made of easy to read different sections so you know exactly what your Wowmeh body can do. 

The Bad!
There’s not many things bad but just a few things you should consider before purchasing.

1) You can only wear mesh. Well, so far at least. I haven’t seen very many designers making appliers for clothing quite yet (it will come eventually I’m sure) but at the moment you will mostly be able to only wear mesh with this item. For me its not much of a problem because I usually only wear mesh on my Coco doll, but for the applier users (those who wear tango and phat azz) and other mesh attachments it could prove difficult for you when dressing. 

2) Standard alphas. Now, originally this was being promoted as a good thing. That you can disappear certain parts of the wowmeh body with just a click, however upon trying it myself just to test how it works for you guys I have to say, while it can be a plus it can also be a big minus when it comes to wearing mesh. Each piece of mesh is uniquely made, both in shape and size. So when designers make their alphas they tend to make them for a specific piece of mesh that won’t necessarily fit another item. This can be hard with the wowmeh body, for instance if you wanted to wear mesh panties or mesh pants that are really show and you just wanted to alpha away a piece or a shape you can’t do that. If you click for example for the underwear alpha to show up, a standard size chunk disappears. A chunk that it seems more time than not won’t suit the piece of mesh you’re wearing. So hopefully you have a wide ranged wardrobe of non skimpy clothes that won’t be affected by the alpha issue. 

3) Not very many skin appliers  yet. So far the only one I really know of is The Sugar Garden. I could be totally mistaken but once more comes out I will update until it picks up on the main stream. EDITED: See below for other stores with appliers.

The Ugly 

There’s not many ugly things on this body either, overall its very well made, but just a few notes that I hope are updated on the next release.

1) The feet, they’re not as well shaped as -I- would like. Other mesh feet attachments tend to have a lot more detail and tend to be a lot prettier. Lol pretty feet, that’s what I want. 

2) The vagina.. ok. I know. I KNOW! What am I doing looking at it right? But seriously once I took off the panty and bra layer the body comes with it was hard to miss. Whoo lawdy, that is an ugly vagina. xD It also posed a problem for me in wearing the mesh panty because it is more uhm- elongated than the standard avatar’s vagina. So the crotch of the panty went -through- the vagina area as opposed to -over it-, no matter what size underwear I wore.  I would recommend some mesh body shorts. I’m not sure if you can see, but if you look closely at my pictures you might be able to pick up where I had to paint the underwear in. I won’t be so lude as to take a picture of the missing crotch. Use your imaginations lol. 

Well, that wraps up my review, I hope that my opinions helped with your purchasing making decisions.

Sweater Weather – A review of Pink Fuel’s Doll V2 for The Mesh Project

Previously posted @ Ruffles & Frills.

This skin you guys…It has given me life!
A couple of days ago, Pink Fuel released a revamped version of the Doll skin, which I believe was released for the Love Donna Flora event a while back, anyways, a few months ago Mochi teased us on Plurk with a quick snap of the revamped version, and it had me drooling. I’ve been hooked on PF since Harley was released, and for good reason. When I saw that she was released a face for the Mesh Project head, I died. 
Yes, yes, the Mesh Project. My annoying love/hate obession. Anyways, I had to get the face, because Pink Fuel…For the Mesh Project. Enough said.
On to the good stuff! The face itself is gooorgeous, but in true Pink Fuel style, there are makeup options, and not just makeup options, but tons of eyebrow options too!
(From left to right: Base (Blonde), Black/Brown, Bright Blonde, Ginger, Light Brown)
Oh no no, that’s not all!
(Left to Right: Top: Pink, Purple, Blue. Bottom: Carrot, Red, Green)
Of course, there’s Eyeshadows
(Left to Right: Top: Base, Pink, Purple. Middle: Blue, Green, Sepia. Bottom: Light Smoke, Dark Smoke, White.)
Aaaand, lippie options.
(Left to Right: Top: Base, Clear Gloss, Neutral. Bottom: Pink, Red, Orange)
Oh, and because Mochi loves us, she included a crap ton of appliers with the skin. Here are the appliers included:
I’m not even kidding. This beautiful skin comes with appliers for Slink (Physique, hands, and feet), The Mesh Project, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Wowmeh, Kitties Lair/Lena Mesh Body, AMD Baby Bump, Lolas, and Phat/Cute Azz. 
Oh, and the fun doesn’t stop there. Seriously, I’m not even joking, there’s more.
(Top to bottom: Regular- Normal, Small, & Cleavage, Athletic- Normal, Small & Cleavage, Ripped- Normal, Small & Cleavage, Curvy- Normal, Small & Cleavage)
Along with appliers for all of these mesh goodies, everything comes in system layers, so you don’t have to be 100% mesh like myself
As of right now, this skin is only available in the Crystal tone, but I don’t doubt that other tones will be released
So, if you’re interested in the new Doll skin, it’s available at Pink Fuel for only L$ 1,500 – For everything -
Toodles!

P.S. I’m wearing a Turtle Neck and a Choker in these photos because I’m a brat who uses Advanced lighting for EVERY picture, and The Mesh Project heads don’t play nicely with that setting. There’s a very visible line along the neck, and it’s very unsightly. Gotta love SL bugs >.<

Drunk in Love: A review of Belleza’s Venus Mesh body

Previously posted @ Ruffles & Frills.

***Warning, lots of Boobs, Vaginas and Info coming up!***
Hello!
Belleza – finally – released their long awaited mesh body.
All hail Venus!
Anyways, this body, in my opinion, is the best one yet. It’s exquisitely shaped, and…It’s Slink compatible!
The body comes with a Slink fit option, but it also comes with it’s own set of mesh hands and mesh feet. 
And when I say it comes with its own set of mesh hands…I mean it comes with it’s own mesh hand army.
(So Sorry for the loooong wall of photos!)
16 hand poses in all, and they’re interchangeable, you can wear a different pose on the left and right hands, and best of all, they’re all controllable through the Venus HUD. No more digging through your inventory finding hand poses.
Now, for some HUDdage
We’ll start with the alpha HUD. It’s a lot more detailed than the Wowmeh HUD, and probably even the Physique HUD, but only slightly. I don’t mess with the Mesh Project’s alpha HUD, so I’m not sure how well that one works.
The sole purpose of the alpha HUD is to make mesh outfits wearable again. They’re not foolproof though, so certain outfits can’t be worn with the mesh body. Demo, demo demo when it comes to mesh clothing.
Here we have the Breast HUD, Skin HUD, Hand, and Foot HUD – In that order -.
In the breast HUD, you can switch from natural cleavage to Push up cleavage, and change your nipple color, the skin HUD allows you to change your skin tone to match any of Belleza’s skins, but there are also skin presets so you can match to non-Belleza skins, and there are empty slots for third party appliers. You can also switch tattoos, clothing, and underwear layers using the Skin HUD.
The hand HUD is where you change your hand poses, and nail color, and the foot HUD is where you change foot positions and nail color. Included in the Foot HUD are three presets – Flat, Medium, and High – and JD (Just Designs) has allowed the JD Foot to be included in the HUD.
Lastly, a comparison of the three mesh bodies that are currently available
(These are all on the same exact shape, and with no editing – just windlights -)
First up, Venus:
Slink Physique:
Lastly, the Mesh Project
All-in-all, the Venus body is my favorite. It’s compatible with my beloved Slink, but it has the ability to make a really cute chubby body. Case in point:
(Belleza does curvy rather well!)
The mesh project does well with cute and chubby too, but those feet are really awful, like so awful that they ruin the entire body, for me at least. TMP’s main advantage is how beautiful and versatile the body can be,
Slink’s main advantages are Slink hand/feet compatibility (duh!) and how realistic the hips and legs are, but Physique makes a prettier athletic/skinny body than it does a curvy one.
Venus will run you about L$ 4,000, a bit pricey, but well worth it in my opinion, if you’re a fan of mesh bodies like I am.
Soon enough, the system avie will be obsolete, a welcome change?
Toodles!
