Girls in Pantsuit

 These pantsuits remind me of the 70s.

The girls in Bohemian and Polkadot prints pantsuits.

The girls in Flower Power and Ombre Polkadot prints pantsuits.

The girls in Silk and Velvet pantsuits.

I couldn't wear the SLink shoes with these pantsuits because the ankles protrude at the back and the SLink feet cannot be moved(ie edited) so I used N-Core's shoes which can me moved around and up and down. There are virtues in not boxing up some stuffs no matter how massive the inventory has become since I made clothes.

Other colours and prints are also available at the Beach Store and the Marketplace. As always, please try a demo.

Other stuffs Moon is wearing:
hair: TRUTH HAIR Electra -  variety
eyes: Mayfly
skin: New Faces  - Mei Ying  (Ivory)
mesh body:~WowMeh - Style ( v3.1)
jewellery: : Amorous : Organic
shoes: N-core SHAE "White" (Mesh)

On Carter:
hair: !Lamb Zelda

skin: YS&YS Susan

Girls in Bikini

After I had put Moon in the WoWMeh mesh body, I was inspired to do more bikinis. Here I have Moon pose with Carter who is not in a mesh body, feet or hands. I think they both look good except you can see the differences in the upper torsos where the bodies bend. Mesh body bends smoothly and regular body breaks.
The girls in polkadots print string bikinis.

The girls in hibiscus print string bikinis.

The girls in tartan print string bikinis.

The girls in candy stripes string bikinis.

Can you tell....

....that Moon is wearing a mesh body?
A few days ago I bought the WoWMeh mesh body. It would have been easy if Glance Anais has the applier, but since they didn't have one, I went on a search and today I finally found the skin I want Moon to wear.

Well, as you can see, at a glance, Moon looks the same. That's because I chose New Faces Mei Ling skin for her and she has retained her oriental look.

Anyway, when I used the mesh body, I had to adjust the shape sliders. Since the Slink hands and feet cannot go any smaller than XXS, I had to either add Moon's fat or her muscle or play around with both. It was frustrating.  In the end, Moon put on 1 size bigger because I couldn't seemed to make her any smaller without having gaps around the SLink hands and feet. Also, Moon now has thunder thighs because I can't make her upper legs slimmer without those gaping appendages. As you can see, it's still not perfect but I am satisfied at the moment.

Next, to try the body with my dresses. For me, this is the reason I bought the mesh body. I wanted to see if I can still wear my dresses with the mesh body because if I can't, nobody else could either.

All in all, most of the rigged mesh clothings are wearable and the ones that I have problems with are the ones that I can't hide with the available alpha layers on the WoWMeh alpha hud. If there are more layers, I think almost all of the clothes will be wearable. Of course, I still have to use the shape slider for some dresses.

Here are some examples where more alpha layers would help:
Looks good infront, but not from behind:

Another example:
Looks great from the front, but not from behind:
I've played around with the shape sliders to try fix them but it was not possible. I don't know if fitted mesh will help this problem(I'll have to try another time), but for rigged mesh, alpha layer seemed the way to go. I don't know if there are any other alternatives like making your own alpha layer for the mesh.

In my opinion, if you're not willing to tweak your shape here and there a little bit, then there is no way you will be happy with the mesh body.

Personally, I think this is a good mesh body. Hopefully the little flaws like having a good fit with the SLink feet and hands can be fixed. And also, the noticeable line flaw of the skins between the body and the neck can also be fix.

Also, I hope skin makers will also make tattoo layers(cleavage) for the mesh body because I have no idea how to incorporate the regular tattoos onto it.

Overall, I am happy with this mesh body. I'll probably have Moon wear this all the time. She does look healthier and she does finally look like a figure in a new computer game instead of a figure from the last generation :p

What Moon is wearing:
hair: Eaters Coma
eyes: Mayfly
skin: New Faces Mei Ling Olive
mesh body: WoWMeh
necklace: MG
shoes: Pure Poison/Six Bois

Beach Store & Rez Day

I've been busy re-building my store again because I wasn't satisfied with the last one. This time I use one of my houses because I loved it so much;)

This was the Blue Courtyard Apartments turned store.

And today, the 24th of May, I will have been in SL for 7 years and to celebrate that occasion, I've made these Nautical Vintage Dress in 3 colours. I am such a late bloomer. It took me this long to find myself in this virtual world.

You can get them only at the Beach Store. I won't be putting them on the marketplace like I do with my other monthly specials.

Summery days

*Citrus* has come out with a summery blouson top which comes with both sheer and opaque and leggings. The leggings is fitted mesh. The jury is still out for me with fitted mesh but if you have the latest viewer, you will be able to see this mesh correctly. I still don't understand why some fitted mesh have all the 5/6 sizes just like regular mesh and my eyes can't differentiate one from the other :(
Anyway, this is not about meshes but about dressing up my avatar.

skin: Glance Anais August
eyes: Mayfly - Luminous - Mesh Eyes (Midnight Hazel)
top: Citrus Balloon Top White River (Moon is wearing the sheer top and it also comes with the system bra)

Courtyard Apartments

It's been a month since I last built a house and I've been missing it. Last week I had an idea about a courtyard home and started building. I'm not really into big houses so I turned this building into an apartment complex. Of course, with a few modifications, it's still possible to turn this building into a house for a large family.

I imagined the house faces the beach which is why I added sand across the road but the road and sand are only for the picture and not part of the built.

Here is the courtyard with the 4 apartments looking in. I imagine barbecues and small parties happening here..

The rose garden with the swimming-pool.

I didn't decorate the interior of the building.
Front office and foyer perhaps.

You can check the build at my demo vendor inworld. I have also put it up on Marketplace.
