Catwa Cindy Female Mesh Head

Cindy (click here for a raw shot)

A few days ago Catwa Clip released another basic mesh head. Cindy is only L$900 like her other basic mesh heads, but of course you can purchase add-ons separately if you wish to have animations. You can see a full breakdown of the pricing of her heads along with the costs of add-ons on the Catwa Heads Chart on her flickr.

Cindy has more of a bigger nose and lips so has a bit of an exotic feel to it. To me she looks kind of like the Catwa Annie head, but with an attitude! I decided to show you guys how it looks in a few different skins. If you check the video below you will see that I tried on appliers from Bold & Beauty, Glam Affair, Insol, and YS&YS. Hopefully seeing the different tones and styles of skins on the head will give you a better idea of how many different looks you can come up with when it comes to these heads.

Cindy is available at the Catwa mainstore as well as her marketplace store.

I also couldn’t resist doing another dancing video. This time I used a dance animation from Sinewave called Liquid Felon. I found out about this dance animation from another video I saw on youtube called: Smooth Criminal Dance Video (Second Life) by Blaq Magik. The Smooth Criminal video is phenomenal and they used the Liquid Felon dance as it was intended to be used. I definitely recommend watching it. Here is my version of the Liquid Felon dance below:

The Liquid Felon Animation Set from Sinewave was first released back in 2009 I believe, when Michael Jackson passed away. It is a free set that they have dedicated to him. It was recorded on Smooth Criminal and the dance animations match the beat of that song perfectly. However, I decided not to use that song for a few reasons. I already feel like Blaq Magik did an amazing job with it and I couldn’t even come close to their interpretation of it. I also did it for copyright reasons. YouTube can be finicky when it comes to using copyrighted music in your videos so I just decided to use something that was free to use from the YouTube library.

I remember Sinewave was one of the first places I ever bought a dance from back in 2007. Yes, it is still around and they do have some dances labeled “new female dances” but I am not sure when they were released. In any case, I definitely think you guys should head over to Sinewave and at least pick up this FREE Liquid Felon animation. You need two people to get it to work! It’s definitely a lot of fun to play with.

I made my dance video on Harlow Heslop’s beautiful Blithe sim. Blithe is now an adult, paid sim. You have to join their group in order to explore it. They have many parties and events happening there almost on a daily basis. For more details about Blithe, check out Harlow’s flickr.
