Dusting off my Digits

… for Strawberry Singh’s What’s your Digits? – Take 5: The Mesh Body Revolution.

Yes, I’m once again dusting off my blog. It might be for the last time too. I’m not spending a whole lot of time in SL any more. And when I am inworld, I just don’t feel like blogging about it. Maybe I’ll feel differently in a couple of months, but for now expect this blog to be veeery quiet.

Well, after I share my Digits that is! I did part 1, 2 and 3 of this challenge, but somehow missed part 4. I just couldn’t miss part 5 as well. So here it is:

Dusting off my Digits

Followed by some questions:

  1. Do you currently own a mesh body? If so, do you wear it all the time or just once in a while? If not, skip to the fourth question. – Yes, I own a mesh body and I wear it all the time.
  2. What is your preferred mesh body available on the market right now? – I tried demo’s by Slink, Maitreya and Belleza, but only bought Slink Physique in the end. I felt that one worked best with my regular shape.
  3. Have you changed your shape since you started wearing the body? – Well, I did change my shape since the last time I did this challenge. After Part 3 of the challenge I was on a mission to make my proportions more realistic. I used these shape tools and ended up cutting quite a bit of my legs off! But that was before the mesh body revolution. Because the Slink Physique sticks pretty close to the system shape, I didn’t change my sliders for it. I will sometimes tweak the sliders to fit in a particular garment though.
  4. How do you feel about mesh bodies in general? – I just love them. They also seem to have given designers a new burst of creativity, which is a lovely side-effect.
  5. What is one thing you would request from designers when it comes to mesh bodies? – The one thing I really dislike about mesh bodies, is how time consuming it has become to alpha, HUD, attach and applier yourself into an outfit. I’m not sure if it is actually technically possible to avoid this, but there it is. My one dislike.
