Did you know that mesh heads have been around for three years? I blogged about the first LOGO Infinity Chloe mesh head back in November 2012. I’m not surprised that they’ve been around for this long, yet residents were slow to embrace mesh heads due to a number of factors. Prior to the introduction of mesh bodies, appliers for skin were only available for individual body parts. The mesh heads that were available, did not offer kits for skin designers to create appliers, so it lacked mass appeal. With the availability of skin appliers, I started seeing more residents embrace them and the coverage for all things mesh body and mesh heads expanded.
I embrace mesh heads from brands that delivered pretty faces, yet I find myself always going back to my default SL face. I was able to make the mesh heads ‘me’ but the novelty wore off once I felt that my avatar and photos were indistinguishable from dozens of others in SL. The latest LOGO Alex v3.0 update delivers so much customization (OMEGA tattoo makeups!), that I feel will benefit mesh heads wearers and help set these doll faces apart. You should read about all the new updates, there are too many new awesome features to mention.
I predict that within a year or two, there will be so many mesh heads (and skin appliers) that it will be impossible to tell that someone is wearing a mesh head, or which brand it came from. For me, the thing that will put one mesh head above another is the efficient scripting and beautiful expressive emotions. My favorite head is from LOGO, due to the dozens of different combinations of expressions that I can create by mixing and matching the eyes and mouth. Other mesh heads have nice features too, but for me, LOGO is definitely the most fun to wear.
For this review, I am wearing the Aria skin applier by Lara Hurley. I haven’t worn Lara skins in a very long time, but mesh heads have definitely gotten me to try brands that I don’t normally wear. I’ve observed that with the recent interest in mesh heads, lots of older skin brands have seen a revived interest in their skins.
For some reason, I wrote a novel today, so let’s end this post with a question that I have for you guys. Do you have a favorite mesh head and skin combination? Let me know in the comments and I will check it out! 🙂
