Fresh Fashion Guest Blogger Vixie Rayna - A Mesh Affair

Linden Lab


Spring 2012 will be all about embracing the innovative world of MESH in Second Life®. Mesh really is going to drive our community forward and offer our creators a platform to share things there were difficult or impossible through prims or sculpties. If you haven't really given mesh a chance, now is a wonderful time to explore this brave new world.

Right now the MIX + MESH Fair is in full swing. From Feb. 25 through March 11, it's a fashion-centered event highlighting some amazing designers who are using mesh. AVENUE produced the event, which hosts numerous fashion shows, shopping and contests, showcased around a full mesh build. Nardya Rousselot is the mastermind of the stunning build, which you can visit today. Check out the wonderful possibilities mesh has, as a tool not only for fashion designers, but for all content creators in SL.

Mesh is really easy to incorporate into your wardrobe, and most designers supply several standard sizes to suit most avatars. The first outfit, a yellow jumpsuit by R.icielli, is a single mesh attachment worn with glitch alpha layer.

The small size fit my avatar nicely. It moves and bends with your avatar in ways that were difficult with prims. I adore the color, and it's a great classic piece for any wardrobe. Add a few vibrant accessories and you can really make this look your own.

Another great feature of mesh is the extremely detailed textures designers are able to create. Faint Paulse, of Ladies Who Lunch, has made great use of this with her new collection. It offers a seamless level of detail that previous system clothing made very difficult.

This mix-and-match outfit includes a prim feather top paired with a patterned mesh skirt. Details like layered feathers add a whimsical and unique touch the outfit.

You too can find the fun of mesh by exploring new builds, transporting yourself in the latest mesh automobile or discovering your own personal style using mesh fashions!
