What better way to start the new year than get a boob job, right? :D
I have been seeing massive amounts of mesh boobs all over flickr and blogs for months now and I figured it was something I might try eventually, but not right now. Then last night, I tried it and boy was it an adventure. I’m going to have to blame all this on two of my best friends and some other plurk friends. You can see all the enablers in the following two hilarious plurks:
“So do I need to get these boob thingamajiggers?” and “I GOT BOOBS!”
So here’s the deal. I tried the Lush demos by Riann Maltese available at this slurl but I didn’t end up getting them (even though I liked them very much and they are L$1050 which is cheaper than the tangos) but apparently they did not have many skin appliers out for them. So I thought I should just skip it for now. I heard the tango clothing appliers work on them though, so you could possibly give them a try.
I purchased the mesh tangos from Lolas available at this slurl. I did that mainly because my current fav skin designers had appliers out for them, such as: Glam Affair, PXL and Al Vulo. The Lolas did not have a demo and they were L$1750…but as my friend Faint Paulse said, “if you want a top notch surgeon, and implants with high quality silicon or some shit, you gotta shell out.” LOL She makes me laugh on a daily basis. She also has a lot of quality clothing with appliers for the tangos available at her store, Ladies who Lunch. I especially love this cocktail dress.
One thing to note is that I made these breasts a lot smaller than people usually would. I made them a size I was comfortable with, but when I did that I got seams. Seams are not visible if you make them a bit bigger. I photoshopped my seams out but they really aren’t that noticeable. I have a raw shot at this link on my profile if you’d like to see.
More and more designers are making skin and clothing appliers for the tangos, I hope they also do for the lush as I find them both quite nice. Mesh boobs are just another fun thing to play with. I always like to try everything, mesh droids, mesh avatars, mesh eyeliner, mesh eyes, mesh hands, mesh feet and I’m glad I tried these mesh boobs as well. I’m probably not going to wear them often but I will definitely bust them out (pun intended) for some nice pictures like I do with my mesh feet and hands.
Finally, one of my favorite things about these mesh breasts is the amount of time it actually saves me in photoshopping. The shape is something I have tried to achieve before getting them, for example: in this picture which is pre-mesh boobs. That image took me hours and hours to do just because I had to shape the sl avatar boobs. The pictures in this post took me 30 minutes tops.
So these are my thoughts on mesh breasts…how do you feel about them?
