So many exciting things, Maitreya has released Lara, a full mesh body with hands and feet included. You also get appliers lingerie by Zaara, as well as mesh lingerie by Maitreya included. For those that are Glam Affair skin wearers this body is going to make you very happy indeed, as all the skin presets are the Glam Affair skin tones. There are also other stores making skin appliers, and many more to come.
For Slink hands and feet, do not despair, because this body works with those too, just wear the XS sizes and you are good to go instantly.
There are a lot of great things going on with the huds, feet are all one item, so you just choose which style you want to wear. Nail polish presets are also included, but for those wanting more, there will be nail appliers you can purchase. I have made some for my store Flair already , and you can also pick up a gift set from either the store or Marketplace, so that you can play around and see how it all works.
The body is on the smaller side I have noticed, so fitting to mesh clothing should be a breeze, and of course if your shape is already standard sizing, you shouldn’t have to worry about anything. It is fitted to the body though, so you can alter if needed. The alpha hud has many options, so it will just take practice. You can also minimise the hud, so that you don’t take up your screen with it, but can keep it on if you change clothing a lot.
Now ever since the release of the leggings/boots all in one set that Maitreya did as one of their first mesh items, everyone has been all about their bums, and this body has accentuated that love for many – I so wanted to put ss there instead of cc – it has that Maitreya shape that we all know, and I am looking forward to many more clothing options for it. You can also apply for a kit to create for the Maitreya Body, visit their website for that information. There is also a group gift out of some footwear that will work with the feet, so slip them on for the new year, and you won’t need much else.
I am wearing a wonderful dress by Emery that is at this round of C88, and it has that very mod look of the 60’s about it, so it was perfect with the updated for body wear Thigh Boots by Maitreya also. The hair tied the whole look together, with its high pony and cascading curls by Analog Dog. It is called bangers, and it has 3 bang attachment options, so three styles in one. I am hoping more stores do that in future, it was a big thing for stores to do in 2007 – 2008 but died off, so yay for it’s return.
I have on my slink head, Visage, and because of the expressions hud allowing me to turn off the ears, I ran over to The Mens Department – I wish they would list in search as their proper name, not TMD it is not easy finding them if you do not know of such options – and got the NEW Mandala ears. I had seen them in the past, previous releases, but kind of put them in the ‘for other people’ basket…if you knew the kind of things that went in that basket it may just curl your toes.
The hud is incredible, you get different options of ear types – I KNOW! WHO KNEW YOU WANTED SO MANY TYPES? Mandala that is who – and they all come with gorgeous texture options tips wise, or not, metal options for pierced or not, gem texture options and skin bases or tinting – for the more fantastical of us all. They are such a great price too, so honestly even if you think you have a basket like mine, you need them anyway, they are awesome.
The stool I am sitting on in the pic is by The Loft and also had just a perfect Mod feel to it, I loved the style and can totally imagine them in a really cool bar setting. Pubs have gotten so upmarket these days, that this would definitely be in place in any stylish location and setting.
