A new designer for me, Busty Boutique claims to cater for all the busty ladies out there.  I’m only average in that department, so I was expecting this outfit to be a check and file trash, but I was pleasantly surprised with it.  I’m assuming this is because it’s fitmesh (did I mention I love fitmesh?)

The dress comes in standard mesh sizes (all fitmesh) and also in fitmesh for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya.  Also included are a pair of heels for Slink High.  The texturing is very nice, although I’m having to go blonde again 🙂

A new day

It’s hard to take a leap, sometimes – to do something new when you’re so comfortable with the old.

I have felt that way for a long time regarding certain aspects of SL.  I’ve been encouraged by my good friend Whit to investigate the world of mesh faces (somehow that’s so much easier to say than ‘mesh head’, which just keeps striking me as silly, for some reason.

As I told her, while the money is quite a commitment (to me), I really had a hard time changing my look.  My face is… me.  I’m kinda silly that way.

But take a look at the Kirsten head from Gaeline Creations[GA.EG].

I’ve blogged this dress before, but it’s not really about the dress (clearly).

I won’t go long into the details of the face/head, but after trying many out (Catwa, Logo, Slink, LeLutka) this one gave me the shape that I’m happiest with, with ease-of-use and flexibility that lets me think of the future.  It comes with its own built-in skins and several makeup options but is also Omega skin and makeup compatible (with the Omega transfer HUD).

One of the aspects I really like is the capability of adding on additional [GA.EG] makeup packs right into the face HUD, no additional HUDs necessary!

Oh, yes – and Kirsten works with mesh or SL eyes – it does not require mesh eyes.  I’m rather happy about that!

Suffice it to say that I finally found a me.. that looks like me.  Hopefully you’ll find it an improvement as well, but not so different from the me you know.  I rather wish Whit had been able to stick around long enough to see that she “won”… but she’ll know, somewhere.  🙂

Mahalo, and aloha!
