In a World of Pure Imeshination …

Posted on Updated on

Happy almost weekend, my loves! It’s been a whirlwind of a week, made all the more exciting for me because I took the plunge and bought the Maitreya Lara mesh body. Happiness, you are made of lush limbs and rounded curves! Not having to try and smooth out the odd planes and angles of the system avatar body in photographs is wonderful. Now I can spend the extra time playing with Windlights instead. The virtual world can be so vibrant and beautiful!

I demoed the Lara body for a day or so, and I had contemplated giving the Slink body a try as well, but the hands and feet are sold separately so it would have been a considerably more costly investment (although the sheer amount of shoes available for Slink feet is seriously impressive!)

The roster of designers who work with the Maitreya body isn’t quite so expansive yet, but it will likely grow as time goes on and updates are released. In the meantime, the wonderful Raznay published her Epic List of designers who offer Maitreya-compatible clothing, footwear, and more. If you have suggestions to add, please fill out the form on that page so we can keep the list growing!

I went with a super low-cost look that shows a lot of luscious skin, and I can’t wait to find some affordable applier bikinis for my summertime beachy adventures. The exceptionally beautiful Just Another Tequila Sunrise region is my backdrop today, and has so many beautiful vistas to photograph and explore! Definitely planning to visit again soon and write a proper destination post. So many wonders of the virtual world, so little time. And there’s a more pressing matter: I have only one pair of Maitreya-compatible shoes to my name, and that will never do!

Finally, a shout-out to Infected for the gorgeous Dragon Tattoo sleeves I snagged at their in-world store. I’m absolutely in love with the colors! It seems like colorful applier tattoos are far more rare than their monotone varieties, but I’m hopeful that there will be some excellent treasures to be found in the upcoming Body Art Hunt, which launches on July 1st. Looking forward to it!

    I have the Lara body as well, and I still use my Slink hands and feet. It just seems like a good combination for me. I LOVE how vibrant your photos are…so colorful and pretty ^^

    Moni answered what I was going to write, I wear Lara all the time, and so agree with you on the perfection for pictures. I wear the SLink foots and hands all the time tho I’ve found shoos to be very compatible with the Maitreya hands and feet too. As for the clothes alphas you can pick up the developer HUD for free instore and create any alpha you need to work with the outfit you have on. :D

      Oooh, I had no idea about the developer HUD, Cao! I think I snagged it when I bought Lara because it was sitting there and was free (all about dem freebies!) but I wasn’t sure what it was for so I kinda shoved it in a folder with my backup copy. Thank you for letting me know, you’re the best! <3
