mesh goodies

thick, bulky sweaters seem like mesh was made *just* for them. no longer do you have to worry about fixing prims, resizing them to fit, or having the prims go completely wonky on you while your AO is on…


..instead, you can simply plop a mesh top on and get as bendy as you like! \o/

bff vivi && i have been pretty much obsessed with all the mesh offerings on the grid lately. we’ve gotten *incredibly* spoiled by now nicely && how easily mesh garments fit.. and lucky for us, there seems to be no shortage of mesh items to pick and choose from.

in fact, if you’re still a newb to mesh (which, c’mon.. firestorm just did a full release of their latest viewer && it supports mesh! there’s no excuse now not to upgrade!), and looking to just test the waters a li’l bit… the large-collared sweater i’m wearing, by aitui, is out @ collabor88 for just *88L*. there’s two colors, the lovely emerald green i picked && also a nice subdued red, and a demo to test your size.. and it comes in a version for the guys.. aaaaand it’s incredibly inexpensive! i love cowl-neck sweaters irl and this one mimics that style perfectly — the fact that i didn’t have to fuss for an hour getting the prims to fit my small size is only icing on a delicious mesh cake.


vivi’s hair && long cardigan are also mesh.. both of which blend together nicely with normal clothing layers and prims. her hair, from wasabi pills, would be hell to wear && photograph even if it had split attachment points. there’s always something that sinks into shoulders or arms or chest with long hair… but with mesh, it always sits just right over her shoulders that only the *craziest* poses would make it break. i enjoy wearing mesh hair myself too, i just sometimes miss the movement prim hair can have.. but for photography? mesh hair makes things so much easier.

her mesh sweater, by mon tissu, looks *so* warm && soft. the textures on this piece, as with all of the pieces we both own from mon tissu, are reach-out-and-touch-it realistic. it shows just enough of the collarbone area to layer a tank or tee underneath, as vivi’s done here, and still is super cute for outerwear. the pretty shade of blue just looks wintery to me and mixes well with the shades of white && gray vivienne chose to accessorize with.

and i know it has little to do with the fashion aspect of my post, but how cute are these reindeer we found?! we even found rudolph!! they didn’t seem to mind at all when vivi && i used them like pose props and back drops.. and rudolph was exceptionally eager to have his photograph taken. who knew reindeer were so photogenic, hmmmm?
