Two Pose HUDs You Need

Two Pose HUDs You Need

Before I get into the two pose huds and why you may need them, I just want to share a few things about what I’m wearing.

The poncho and jeans are both mesh. The poncho is from DECOmpose. There’s also a mens version of this poncho which you can see the sexy Carthalis wearing in his post here.

EDIT: Adding a quick note about the poncho because of Indigo Alecto’s comment below: I didn’t realize there was no demo to the poncho (which is unfortunate, all mesh clothing should have demos available), therefore here is a raw shot of the poncho and also these are the sizes it comes in: regular and large (no standard sizing availble). I am wearing the regular.

The jeans are from Maitreya and these particular ones in this color are only available to Maitreya VIP group members for 50% off. Details in this post and here’s a link to the Maitreya VIP group which is free to join.


Now on to the Pose HUDs.

Pose Anywhere 2.5
The first one I want to talk about is one I’ve blogged last year and use quite often. Pose Anywhere is one of my favorite pose huds that I use very often. You can check out my blog post about it last year, Pose Anywhere 2, which has a video tutorial and some more instructions. For this post I am going to focus on the upgrade for those who already own the 2.0, can go to the Pose Fair right now and get a FREE update to 2.5. You’ll find the updater there right now and after Pose Fair it will be available in the E2 Designs store by DavidThomas Scorbal.

Here’s what you can expect in the update: (totally stealing this off a notecard in the folder)
HUD now has an Organize button that leads to a convenient pose organization page where you can:
– Delete pose packs
– Rename pose packs
– Make backup copies of pose packs
– Delete individual poses from pose packs
The Pose Installer will allow either “install/replace” of an entire pose pack, OR an “Add” mode, where you can easily add poses to an existing pose pack already in the HUD.

It’s also easy to transfer all your current poses from your old hud into your new hud. Took me just a minute and I’m all setup with my new hud now.

If you don’t already own the hud from before, I suggest you pick it up from Pose Fair soon because it’s on special for L$549 at the fair, retail price is L$649.

The next hud I want to talk about is Animare. I don’t have much experience with Animare, but I did use it for this post and I have to tell you, it’s a lifesaver. Sometimes there are just some really fantastic poses I would love to use for my blog posts but I can’t because they don’t suit my body shape. Either my hand or another part of my body is misbehaving itself. This is where Animare comes in handy. You can use it to adjust any poses you have inworld, easily and within minutes. I got my hands out of my body in both these images very quickly and easily.

But that’s not all you can do with this hud, there’s so much more.
– Check out the Animare website for all the details.
– Buy the hud on marketplace
– and check out the detailed video

I hope you find both these HUDs as useful as I do. Don’t forget to check out Pose Fair soon. <3 Credits: Skin: *League* Jen Dark Feline (Cleavage C) by Nena Janus

  • And oh yeah, I think that is such a hot outfit! Love the poses.

  • I absolutely love the Anywhere Pose HUD. It’s been such a great tool for me. Thanks for the info Berry 🙂

  • I’ve bought a few mesh clothes and love the designs and the rigging with a big BUT that I wondered if anyone else has noticed?

    Mesh at the moment does not work that well with avatar physics because it does not flex. A good friend of mine noted that when I walked although my new mesh tube dress looked cute my naked boobs would bounce right through the layers and be visible (shock horror) as I walked. I was horrified not only did it look bad but it also looked BAD as did my swaying bottom flashing through the skirt. Has anyone else had this problrm and what have you done about it?!!!

  • Thanks so much Yordie and Katy! <3

    Moco, I've actually never used avatar physics so had no clue this was happening. Not sure if there is a possible fix for it but I'll ask around and get back to you.

  • @moco my usual avatar doesn’t wear the physics layer, but since they are wearable items, you could just remove them until you are no longer wearing the mesh clothing. that would keep you from bouncing out of your mesh items.

    …the PoseAnywhere hud is the hud that I swear to god I’ve been looking for everywhere.
    And somehow, I think I can juuust manage to cough up the 300L for the Animare hud.

    (Thank you so much for the post!!!!)

  • Indigo Alecto

    The poncho is hot! However it’s like a lesson in how not to sell mesh. There’s no information on the vendor, such as if it comes in standard sizes, no demo, and the vendor is “pay” so you can’t even inspect what you’re buying. I debated gambling the 400L and then decided not tonight….

  • Indigo, I’m really sorry about that, I didn’t realize that there was no demo. I have updated my post above and put in raw shots and showed the sizes available in the poncho. It is not available in standard sizes.

  • Indigo Alecto

    Thank you Strawberry! 🙂 That was very helpful.

  • I’ve had the Animare for awhile and it’s fantastic for fixing a pose and even creating one on the fly which I’ve done. I just purchased the Pose Anywhere HUD yesterday at the Pose Fair so I’m happy you reviewed it briefly here. Makes me feel good when someone else gives it a thumbs up! Thanks.

  • Hey!

    Thanks so much for your mentions of Pose Fair 🙂

    Definitely getting that Animare HUD!

    Katey x

  • Do you know if you can use the Animare hud with Pose Anywhere hud? The info seems to say that it only works with pose balls. I should probably ask the creator, but I figured you’d have experience with it Strawberry 😀

    And great post!

  • Thanks everyone! 🙂

    Hey Cracked, yes the two huds DO work together as I used them both at the same time for this blog post.
