About a week ago Catwa released a mesh head, named Jessica. I saw the beautiful Kaelyn Alecto wearing it and decided to give it a try myself.
It has a much softer look than most of the other mesh heads on the market and I really did like the way it looked on me so I purchased it for myself and picked up an applier for it from Skinnery. I definitely don’t look or feel like myself in the mesh head but I do like it for all its fun animations and for random picture taking once in a while. Below are some details about the mesh head.
- The price of the mesh head is L$3599.
- It comes with a HUD with 5 tabs: Animations, Lashes, Eyebrows & Eye makeups, Blush & Lipstick, and Skins.
- It has 9 animated expressions which you can continuously play if desired.
- It comes with a hairbase HUD which provides several different options.
- It comes with a free Developers Kit which you can use to create appliers.
- It also comes with a shape and it says that you must wear that shape with the head, however, I didn’t. I wore my own shape which is close to the medium size of standard sizing but it had a bit of a gap between the head and neck at certain angles.
- You have to wear mesh eyes with this head and will most probably need to re-position them.
- 12 designers have already released skins appliers for it and DeeTaleZ is about to very soon.
- It is Omega compatible.
- More information about it on the Catwa blog and in the marketplace description.
If you’d like to give it a try you can pick up the DEMO for free on the marketplace and the mainstore.

Today was a special holiday for muslims around the world. The name of the holiday was Eid al-Adha and the story behind this Eid revolves around Abraham and his great sacrifice. Yes, the same Abraham that can be found in the Bible and Torah. Interesting how if you read all three of these religious books: […] Continue reading →

(available on marketplace) Linden Lab introduced Avatar physics to Second Life back in 2011. I was never a big fan of it, I’m still not to be honest. However, ever since fitted mesh bodies have been released, physics have not looked so bad with them. The bouncing effect is a lot more subtle with the […] Continue reading →
This is the first time I’ve tried a Genesis head and I thought it was nicely done. I liked this one especially because it has such different features than most of the mesh heads I’ve seen so far. I am probably never going to wear this head again as I don’t feel like myself in […] Continue reading →
Mr. Draxtor Despres recently gave me an idea for a Monday Meme. He said I should ask everyone if they have a secret crush on a Linden. Then he told me who his secret crush was. I won’t reveal his crush because I plan on blackmailing him with it later. :P I decided not to make this a […] Continue reading →
I just finished going through all of Hair Fair and some of my most favorite hair there is from Exile, for both men and women. The hair in the first image is called Siren’s Call and it’s just incredibly sexy. Hair Fair is now open. There are four sims altogether: Blonde Sim, Brunette Sim, Redhead Sim […] Continue reading →
I recently found a new-to-me store on marketplace, Just Because. The mesh is great quality but what I love is that they have fitmesh for the Maitreya body (and other mesh bodies) that fits perfectly. The prices are great as well. Both the top and bottom I’m wearing were only L$75 each. The hip chain […] Continue reading →
Mix is a HUD based monthly event that starts on the 1st of each month and features up to 100 of SL’s best brands. Each month designers are to put out items in their mainstores which fall into one of the following categories, “New, Sale or Exclusive.” I think this is a wonderful idea as […] Continue reading →
(click here for a raw shot) Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up […] Continue reading →

Dum maaro dum literally translates into ‘take another hit’ and it was the name of a very famous bollywood song in the 1970s, then reworked in 2011. I thought the song fit well with the theme of Zaara’s Arcade items this month. This month for the Arcade Zaara is inviting you all to escape to […] Continue reading →

This month’s theme for Uber is spice, focusing on South Asian inspired content. My most favorite theme so far! Zaara has released something for the men this round. A Nehru suit and turban. Nehru suits consists of a hip-length tailored jacket with a mandarin collar often worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of […] Continue reading →
