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.
My Attic at The Deck is well under way, with a theme of “My Favorite Things.” As usual, you can find great fashions at a reduced price and for a limited time.
Always a favorite participant, DCNY is offering a little velvet dress with tone on tone embroidered decorations, pearl buttons and a white-collar and cuffs. It’s described as “part Gothic Lolita and part refined girl with classic taste.” I just call it cute as a button. Rigged mesh, with standard sizing. And yes, demos are available!
From now until January 31, DCNY is selling the Velveteen Dress for only 95L. Afterwards, it will be for sale (at the regular, higher price) at the DCNY mainstore. So don’t miss out!
A new event will hit the grid on May 10th, this coming Friday. It’s called “The 100 Block” and will feature over 100 great stores on a full sim ‘block party’ that will be dedicated to celebrating fashion, music and art in Second Life. All participating stores will have a new release…. and the best part is that the release will be priced at 50% off its regular price. Woohoo, load those lindens!
DCNY will release this GORG silk dress, casually styled with dip dyed coloring and a metallic collar in gold or silver. It is playfully elegant, with a generously loose fit that is perfecto for all your spring and summer events on the grid. The dress comes in five sizes (xxs – l) and a ‘Deformer’ size option.
“The 100 Block” kicks off May 10th and runs through May 31st. So you have enough time to go, celebrate, and of course shop! Learn more about this event by visiting the official website: http://depravednation.com/the-100-block.
