What’s your Digits? – Take 5: The Mesh Body Revolution

Before I begin today’s Monday Meme, I wanted to say that I’m really busy with school these days so I haven’t had the chance to read the last couple of weeks’ meme responses, sorry about that! I love reading your responses so I will be on those as soon as I get the chance. Thank you so much for always taking the time to participate. <3

 

What’s your Digits? – Take 5: The Mesh Body Revolution

Hard to believe I’ve been doing the Digits Challenge for 5 years now. I had no plans to do it this year as I’ve been usually doing it in June the past few years but this year, I won’t be around during the month of June. However, Ms. Kirsten Corleone contacted me recently and requested I do it in April since a lot of people are wearing mesh bodies now and she feels her shape has drastically changed since doing so and would love to talk about it. My shape has also changed a bit since last year ever since I started wearing a mesh body all the time as well. So here is the 5th installment of the Digits Challenge!

Meme Instructions: Share your avatar’s digits and/or answer the following questions about mesh bodies. If you decide to share your digits, feel free to add your image to the Digits Flickr Group.

You can see my digits from last year at this link and compare how much I’ve changed since then. Manberry is still pretty much the same because he is not wearing a mesh body as of yet. You do not have to share your numbers if you don’t feel comfortable. You can just answer the following questions:

  1. Do you currently own a mesh body? If so, do you wear it all the time or just once in a while? If not, skip to the fourth question. – For Manberry, I do not have a mesh body that he wears all the time. I did pick him up the free version of The Shops male mesh body but I have no interest in getting him the full version of it. I just don’t like their HUD system so I am waiting for either SLink or Signature to release a male body so I can get him one to wear all of the time. For Strawberry Singh, I currently own several mesh bodies but really only wear two of them now on a regular basis, SLink and Maitreya. I wear the Maitreya mesh body pretty much all of the time, rarely take it off.
  2. What is your preferred mesh body available on the market right now?Maitreya Lara Mesh Body
  3. Have you changed your shape since you started wearing the body? – Yes, I have. Before mesh bodies, I had created a standard size small shape for myself and wore that most of the time because it was easy to wear mesh clothing with it. However, since getting the mesh body, the alpha huds have made it easier to alpha out parts of my choosing so I have made my body a bit curvier. I’ve added some fat and muscle and pumped up my chest and bottom a bit. I keep my chest on the smaller side still though because I prefer it that way and it’s also easier to fit into mesh tops as well.
  4. How do you feel about mesh bodies in general? – I love them. I think they are wonderful because compared to the classic Second Life avatar they are a lot smoother therefore resulting in less time spent in editing all of the rough edges in Photoshop for pictures.
  5. What is one thing you would request from designers when it comes to mesh bodies? – I would love a universal applier system that works on all of the bodies for all of the items. I know the Omega appliers are kind of like that, but they don’t work with everything all the time. So I think once we have a universal applier system, it’ll not only be easier for consumers but also for the designers creating items. They wouldn’t have to make 100 appliers with every release for all the mesh parts out there.

Please remember that you can participate in any of the challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years. All of my past Digits Challenges can be viewed in the Digits Challenges category.

take me as I am

I also wanted to add a poll in this post because it had been a while since my last poll and your answers always give me a good idea of what to do in the future. A lot of you have been contacting me requesting that I do older memes again, such as this digits one, the Movie Poster one as well as wanting me to create another Flat Person to tote around the grid and some others. I always encourage people to feel free to respond to the older memes, there is never an expiry date on any of them, but I figured I’d ask in a poll what kind of memes you would like. I still have lots of ideas of my own and some given to me by others, but would love your input. Multiple selections are allowed in this poll and in the box at the end you can leave me comments or meme suggestions which are anonymous and will only be viewed by me.

 

Thanks for reading, participating and also taking the time to answer the poll. I always appreciate your input! Have a great week. <3

If you are not familiar with Love to Decorate, I suggest you click over to their blog and check them out. They have become one of the best […] Continue reading →

Ready, set, jump!

I’m trying to be a bit more social in SL these days and approaching people I admire to come join me on the blog. Ms. Hillany Scofield is one I’ve wanted to collaborate with for a long while. Not only is her face and avatar incredibly striking to me, but her pictures are so sensually […] Continue reading →

What’s in a Shape?

Last month I released a standard second life shape directly to my marketplace store. The only reason I did that is because people kept asking about my shape and so I thought I would experiment and see what I could come up with. I didn’t expect to, but I sold quite a few of them. […] Continue reading →

It’s My 7th Rezday!

May 9th is my 7th Rezday. 7 years ago today I stumbled upon the virtual world of Second Life, created an account and logged in. I was lost and didn’t quite understand what I was doing so I logged out and didn’t think about it again until a week later. I’m glad I returned and […] Continue reading →

Disdain

I believe it was a week ago when Ms. Magenta DeVinna asked Mr. Truth Hawks on plurk to create a style with curlers in it. I was anxiously waiting for it, and he has finally released it! When I saw this do, the first thought I had in my head was a woman with a […] Continue reading →

SL Go Pricing Update

Before I talk about what I’m wearing in these images, I just wanted to update you guys on the new pricing for SL Go. Since my last post about SL Go, the folks at OnLive have put a lot of thought into the pricing that they initially offered and have decided to add some more […] Continue reading →

The Sexual Meme

It was around this time last year that I blogged my first Monday Meme. On March 11, 2013 I asked you guys to share 7 sl facts with me. It was just a goofy idea I got after reading one of Tymmerie’s plurks that day. Never did I imagine I would continue to do these […] Continue reading →

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. I’ve been doing that a lot lately and figured a book meme […] Continue reading →

The Geeky Meme

This week’s Monday Meme was inspired by the Geeks’n’Nerds Fair. I thought it would be fun to ask you guys to do an image you consider to be geeky/nerdy/dorky/ for the meme and also ask some questions about it. But before we begin, I thought I would share some definitions of these words. For the […] Continue reading →
