I need some TLC

I picked up a DEMO of the SLink Visage mesh heads when they were released last week and had decided not to purchase because I didn’t feel like myself in them. I still don’t feel like myself in them, however Siddean dropped them on me so I thought I would take the opportunity to blog them and share my thoughts about them.

Before we start, here are a few links that you may find informative:

  1. Slink Visage Heads Released-Review – An interesting and informative technical review by Nalates.
  2. SLink Visage 12 Facial Expressions – Maci Restless shares a picture of all 12 facial expressions that come with the mesh heads.
  3. SLink mesh head: face off – Grazia showcases a few of the appliers currently available.

My thoughts and preferences about the mesh heads are not that positive. I think it’s a wonderful idea and beautifully executed but, as I said earlier, I just don’t feel like myself in them. The facial expressions are nice, but the only one that I really like is the grumpy face. The other ones feel a bit forced. I guess it will all just take getting used to but for now, I can’t see myself wearing the head that often. I am looking forward to her future mesh head releases as she has hinted about more coming soon. I also saw her taking suggestions in this plurk for the looks of future heads.

This is what I adore about Siddean, she listens to the community and tries to meet their needs. She is also very generous in what she offers to not only her own customers, but other content creators as well. She gives them the opportunity to create appliers and accessories for all her mesh body parts. If you are a content creator looking to develop appliers for her mesh heads or accessories for her mesh hands and feet, check the developers category on the SLink blog.

I need some TLC

I am also very happy to be blogging for TLC now, which stands for The Liaison Collaborative. TLC has moved to a new location, the fall sim. This month they have three separate events going on at the same time, right next to each other. The theme for all three events is Minimal Nouveau.

The Garden is their home and garden event which has some of the best home and garden creators on the grid participating. Normally I am not a home and garden blogger, but I couldn’t resist rezzing this spectacular home by Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil.

The Boutique has a beautiful collection of mesh clothing and jewelry. I’m wearing the exquisite Perula set from Caelan Hancroft of Cae. It’s scripted and comes with many options for colors and metals.

The Poser Pavilion is a selection of poses from some of the most talented posers on the grid. There are a lot of sexy couples poses this month!

TLC this round started on the 15th of March and will run till the 10th of April. Take the SLurl to the fall sim and check it out.

The Book Meme

(click here to see raw shot, I actually prefer it) Usually when I’m feeling down, the first thing I tend to grab is some chocolate and a favorite book that I’ll sit and read to distract myself and get my mind off things.
