Meme: What's Your Digit Take 4

I like doing this digit challenge from Miss Berry's. This will be the third year I am participating. I like playing around with the shape sliders and see how they can change the avatar and I like having the opportunity to have Moon in a bikini.
Below was how Moon looked in 2012 after I started applying standard size.
There hasn't been much changes except to fit into a size XS, S or M because not all clothes are standard sizes. I still use zero body fat which to me doesn't mean my avatar is skinny as her body thickness is way out there at 77. And eventhough she is over 6 feet, doesn't mean she is tall as making her a little over 5 feet makes her look stunted. Virtual size and real life size is just not the same.

Meme Instructions: Share your avatar’s digits and/or answer the following questions about Fitted Mesh and what you think the future holds for our Second Life avatars. If you decide to share your digits, feel free to add your image in the Digits Flickr Group.

Questions about Fitted Mesh:

  1. What are your thoughts about Fitted mesh? – I am more open towards Fitted Mesh than I was with regular mesh. When I bought a mesh body, I demoed a few Fitted Mesh clothings and I found that it wasn't any better than regular mesh, infact, my avatar with her mesh body wore the regular mesh better. I tried working with the shape sliders, but that didn't help. So for now, I will stick to regular mesh.
  2. Have you tried any of the new fitted mesh avatars released by Linden Lab? What do you think of them? – I like them. I think it is a step in the right direction except for the part where one can't change their attire. Also, why are their hands and fingers so big?
  3. Have you tried any fitted mesh avatars/bodies created by residents? – I have only felt like trying the WoWMesh body and my avatar is now wearing the mesh body full time.
  4. Have you tried a mesh head? What are your thoughts about mesh heads? – I have demoed a few mesh heads. I didn't like that the face is the same for everyone so that didn't win me over.
  5. Do you foresee a lot of changes to our current Second Life avatars because of fitted mesh? –Changes takes time. Even now people are still using system clothings on their avatars and with all the shape sizing frustrations with Fitted Mesh and regular mesh, I don't think there will be a lot of changes anytime soon.
