So I am still on a buyers high following my spend at The Mesh Project. which is located here.  If you want to read about it, you can do so here.

Today I managed to figure out the mesh clothes sold at The Mesh Project and its is very different to what I am used to. When you see something you want you buy the product but is like white.  Once you put it on, you will use the shopping hud to see what textures are available for that template.  When you find the one you want, you buy it and you load it through your Style Mod hud.  This hud stores your purchases/textures. I am wearing The Boutique / Clothing > The Denim Brand > Ripped Jeans, The Boutique / Clothing > Ce’lie – Cotton Midriff Tank and The Boutique / Shoes > L’Boutons > Leather Platform Peeptoe.  I am still in love with this avi however I am not 100% sold on the ankles lol  So besides my hair which is [LeLutka]-BLAKE hair L – Powder and [LeLutka]-SWISH-4in1-pony – Powder everything on me is available at The Mesh Project.


This sim is called the Forgotten City and I found it on  Wendy Castillo’s Facebook. She takes the most amazing photos of SL sims.  I’ve been to two of the sims she has posted on her wall.  She is also quite the interior designer and decorator and amazing blogger.  Check out her blog here

I’ve used a range of windlights and lost track of them however most of them are Ana Cigarro‘s setttings. Ana was kind enough to blog her wind-light settings.  She even made them available to download.  Check out her this blog post here

/me cracks her knuckles

Hello everyone!  Now I’ve got alot to cover so please bare with me.

My rezz day 26 April 2008 so I’ve been around.  I can say I have not learned much about building or things that could actually result in me being a creator in SL unfortunately.  I am just too good of a consumer.  You know.. support the industry that supports you. Thats my excuse and I don’t know how much longer the hubby will buy it XD

But I have been logged out for close to a year now and upon my return I can see a whole lot of mesh!  Now, be mindful that in my gaming SL I have used a laptop.. until recently.  I am now on a PC and I thought, I will go the full hog with the mesh craze.

Since I don’t do things in halves I went the whole kit and kaboodle.  I am going to go into a bit of detail because I think some of this information may be helpful for those of you that may want to invest in a new mesh look.  I haven’t done any comparisons with other mesh products on the markets.

I went into search and typed “mesh head” and the first result was the The Mesh Project. which is located here.

Now the first thing I did was buy a body.  TIP:  When you put on the body get naked.  When I first put it on it looked like i had while rolls hanging from me.  Was not attractive.  I got the #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Body(f).  I should point out that you land at the The Mesh Project sim, you will be given a folder called TheShops! Huds & More.  It is important to wear the Huds if you want to try things on or to buy products.  I also had to credit the hud to buy products.

In the folder it got:

  1. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Body(f)
  2. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Body(f) – Alpha Hud
  3. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Feet(f) Bare/Low/Mid/High/Ouch!
  4. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Hands(f) – Clutch Pose(l) and (r)
  5. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Hands(f) – Handle Pose(l) and (r)
  6. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Hands(f) – Hold Pose(l) and (r)
  7. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Hands(f) – Natural  Pose(l) and (r) which is what I am wearing in these pictures.
  8. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Hands(f) – Relaxed Pose(l) and (r)
  9. (Wear Me!) (Body/Hands/Feet) Alpha
  10. (Wear Me!) (Whole Body) Alpha
  11. The Mesh Project! (Wear Me!) High Heel Mid Heel Low heel Ouch! Heel

At the time of this post #TheMeshProject (BETA) Deluxe Body(f) cost L$5K

Then I bought the #TheMeshProject (BETA) Head(f) – Fierce (Deluxe).  In its folder you get:

  1. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Head(f) – Fierce (Deluxe)
  2. #TheMeshProject (BETA) Head(f) – Fierce (Deluxe) RETROFIT
  3. (Wear Me!) (Body/Hands/Feet) alpha
  4. (Wear Me!) (Head Only) alpha
  5. (Wear Me!) (RETROFIT Head Only)
  6. (Wear Me!) (Whole Body w/Standard Eyes) (which is what I am wearing)
  7. (Wear Me!) (Whole Body)
  8. Some help NCs and lms)

At the time of this post the #TheMeshProject (BETA) Head(f) – Fierce (Deluxe) cost L$5K

Now, I am no expert so do not take anything I say here as gospel.  I have played with this avatar for maybe 2 hours and not tried on the different layers parts etc.  However, from what I understand, if you want to wear the head only, I BELIEVE you wear the RETROFIT head with the RETROFIT head only alpha.  But please.. try it out.

I also bought THESKINSHOP (09) (SKIN) ‘Deja’ (Fit).  In this folder you get the following:

  1. THESKINSHOP (09) (SKIN) ‘Deja’ (Fit) (Bold)
  2. THESKINSHOP (09) (SKIN) ‘Deja’ (Fit) (Soft)

and the following tattoo layers:

  3. THESKINSHOP (09) (CLEAVAGE) ‘Plump’
  4. THESKINSHOP (09) (FACE) ‘Deja’ (Soft)
  5. THESKINSHOP (09) (SKIN) ‘Deja’ (Fit) (Bold)

The cost for this pack was L$1K

I then picked up two packs of lipstick:

THESKINSHOP (09) (LIPSTICK) ‘Flirtatious’ (Warm Reds) which has five different shades of red (L$500)

THESKINSHOP (09) (LIPSTICK) ‘Juicy’ (Cremes) which also has five different shades of nudes (L$500)

THESKINSHOP (09) (HAIRBASE) ‘Classic’ (Platinum Hair) (L$250)

THESKINSHOP (09) (EYEBROWS) ‘Sexy’ (Dark Brown) (L$250)

I am VERY happy with how I look.  I have always had a bit of a babyface so there was a Babydoll option for the face I wanted to try something different in going forward.

In the photos above there is minimal edit, I adjust the contrast and colour a tiny bit, cropped and used inworld depth of field and had my graphic turned up High.

The picture below was taken with my graphics at Low and zero editing.  Not even cropped.

meshtified low graphics no edit raw


So for now, this is the new Ananya.  I may tinker end up with the other heads but I will rock this for a little while.

Ok ok i know I said  a couple of days ago I wanted less glamour on my blog but when I received these gowns….. I kinda like feel in love and COMPLETELY changed my mind lol!!  This is the beautiful Gina by the iconic brand -AZUL-.  I have loved -AZUL- for such a long long time.. years and years.. you get the drift.  To be able to blog these is such a pleasure and an honour.  I will include two pictures below which goes back…. gosh..three years ago.. maybe more?  They were taken by an amazing photographer which unfortunately we don’t see anymore.  You will see -AZUL- quality was superb years ago and still is to this day.  In my personal opinion, its only getting better.

Anyways, back to this beautiful gown called Gina.  I have a lot of depth of field going on so I have lost some of the details in the photos.  The lace is exquisite. Its comes with pretty much everything you see here.  Mesh gloves dress headress and so on.  This dress is sold in a variety of colours such as: Mint, Coral, Onyx, YellowTourmaline, Garnet, Aqua (which is the one Im wearing) turquoise, champagne, sapphire, pearl, amethyst and peach.

GizzA - Donatella Outfit [Black] I

GizzA - Donatella Outfit [Black]

GizzA - Donatella Outfit [Black] II

Whoah!  Get a load of this COMPLETE outfit by GizzA!  It is called Donatella and it comes with pretty much everything you see here.  The glasses, hat, clutch, stockings, jacket, boots, alphas etc and in an assortment of sizes which is just fab.  When you have been away for along as I have, these types of complete outfits are a lifesaver. I can’t get over how respectable no.. cheeky… no sophisticated noo sexy noo classy… no hotness.  Whatever.. it is what it is… just gorgy gorgy outfit!

Now, there is no product placement going on here with regards to the SIM I am on.  When I put on this outfit I thought of New York. So I searched “New York” because we live in a virtual world where there are virtual ALL worlds!  This place popped up and I thought it would be cool to shoot here.  I’ve never been to New York and never seen one of these iconic yellow cabs in the flesh so I thought I would do it here.  You know.. YOLO and all.

Looking in this virtual window for a little bit

hello II

hello I

Hello everyone.  I don’t know if anyone would be reading this which is fair enough.  If anyone goes AWOL for an extended period its bound to happen.  More so in this virtual world.

So the last hiatus went for about 10 months.  My husband build me a new PC for our anniversary.  I have only played SecondLife on a laptop and I must say this is quite the experience.  Its like.. “almost” lag free lol

So I come back and of course wanted to kill some obligatory shopping because that is my poison of preference haha gosh I sound like a wank but anyhoo….  there are a few changes.  I see some iconic stores closing down or going to the Marketplace only.  It took me two days to get into Collabor88 which was like just wow.  As soon as I got in I bee-lined for the ISON boots.  At L$188 they are a steal.  So tempted to get the fatty pack but I just don’t know how long I will linger this round.

So to me.. (and be mindful I have been a RL cave for close to a year) I have found those mesh heads and bodies to be OUT OF THIS VIRTUAL WORLD LIKE OMG WOW.  So I am doing the math and it will cost me just over 50 bucks to get the body and head from The Mesh Project  and I think I can almost justify it.  I haven’t played in close to a year… which means I haven’t spent any of my hard earned RL money in that time…. so I would have SAVED by not logging in.. and with those savings… I can buy me a mesh body and head with BLINKING EYES KDJFKLA;JDFKDJAKJFDL!!  So.. if anyone is reading this I would so appreciate your thoughts and comments.. recommends whatnot.. and yes I know I can GoogleFu it but… yeah.

Anyways… I cast my eye over my blog and my gosh its filled with lots of pretty gowns etc.. which is tres cool.  However.. I would like to see if I could some less glamourific posts…
