Time for some real talk. A real, long talk…
I am probably one of the last people in SL to look at a mesh body. Seriously. It took me forever to get mesh feet. I still refuse to get a mesh head or even mesh hands.
Call me a late adopter. But hey, I can’t run out and buy every new thing that comes along. Contrary to belief, my SL is self-supported. I refuse to go bankrupt buying every mesh part created. Besides, many of these items are not widely supported and its hard to find good creators that will support every new thing. Some will; but a lot won’t. At least not right away.
But with all that said, I was interested in learning more about the mesh body. Being a curvy girl, I wondered if a mesh body would give my avatar the roundness, softness and fullness I always wanted. After multiple tries, I finally made my way into The Shops and got the mesh body. I opened it (once), put it on and really was not wowed.
I didn’t think about mesh bodies again until my good friend Tomi told me to demo the Lena Lush from Kitties Lair. You can learn more about the Lena Lush mesh body here. After trying the demo and fooling around with the options, I went ahead and bit the bullet.
If you are looking for some new, sexy pumps to go with your mesh body and/or mesh attachments, look no further. Hucci has got you covered! Slide your feet into the Urbana Pumps, designed for TheMeshProject Ouch Foot or the Slink High Foot.
The Urbana Pump is a stiletto shoe designed in patent leather and PVC, with patent leather trim. Remember, the feet are not included!
If you purchase this shoe and wish to wear it with The Mesh Project shoe, just note that Urbana is rigged to deform to the fitted mesh foot and will only work with that foot. If you wear Urbana’s Slink version, you already know that the shoe is rigged to the Slink High Foot and requires that version.
Check out the Urbana Pumps (and the rest of Hucci’s shoe designed for mesh feet) at the mainstore or on the SL marketplace.
The Hello Titty Hunt 4 has begun and Lumae is joining in the fun. The hunt prize includes the Evie Skin in 2 tones: Truffle and Honey. Need a hint? Well all I can say is that “Some people just want the Moon on a stick!”
Also included with the skins is a min-appliers HUD for mesh enhancements that contains only the Mid Cleavage versions of Lumae’s appliers as well as the Lacey Days lingerie in black and white. Plus (yes there is more!), there is an appliers HUD that allows you to wear the lingerie with most mesh enhancements.

I’ve known Osumtomi Melendez for quite some time. Probably since my early days in SL. Tomi, as she is affectionately called, had a dream to create ethnic skins that represented the wide range of hues and colors for black and multi-ethnic avatars. It was from that dream that she launched Kiko Life. You can view some of her first generation skins here, here, here and here.
Well RL took her away from the grid and Kiko Life eventually closed. But having remained in touch with Tomi, I knew she wanted to review the brand and make it better than before. Well after many months of hard work, new programs and “applier hell’ as she calls it, now Kiko Life is back! With a new look, a recent relaunch and a brand new line of skins, made just for today’s more advanced avatars.
