It took this long, but I’ve finally started embracing mesh, at least on certain occasions. There are still a lot of flaws to it, particularly in the sizing department. Without a mesh deformer, it’s difficult to get a piece to fit you really well. I never considered my avatar big chested, yet most clothing I try on tends to be too small on my boobs and too big on my butt, and as soon as I move up a size to fit my chest, my ass swells to epic proportions.
Mesh hair, however, has been an absolute dream to work with. It’s beautiful, it moves nicely and the amount of detail creators are able to put into it is stunning. Wasabi Pills in particular has me wanting to buy out their entire store. Hair makers already put so much artistry into each piece and the mesh just takes that awesomness one step higher – plus, no issues with hair poking through your body when you try to take a picture!
In the past, Baby Monkey has always been rather hit-or-miss for me. Sometimes they put out something adorably cute which I wear all the time, sometimes I just can’t get into a piece. The spring 2012 shoe collection, however, doesn’t have a single piece I don’t like. Every single shoe is spot on this time around. It seems like the textures have gotten a major upgrade which makes them that much more appealing, and the skin matching is relatively easy compared to some shoes I’ve worn.
Some of the clothing in the spring collection is cute as well, like this top, but I had trouble getting much of it to fit my body correctly and had to pass on it. Often, the arm cuffs or bust were too small for me.
I’m going to be buying more mesh items in the future, especially hair, shoes and accessories, though I’m not sure about clothing until a deformer comes out. At this point most people are probably able to see it and creators are getting better and better every day with using it, which has boosted my confidence quite a bit. With a few tweaks, it looks like mesh will become a main part of the fashion scene.
