  1. Hello and welcome on SL. For your goal 1, there are two ways to improve your appearance : edit your shape (or buy a shape if you struggle too much with the sliders) or get a meshbody. However the option 2 (to buy a meshbody) might get you off your budget as you'll have to buy a new skin and an applier too. I see you're coming from Imvu and dressing your avie here works very differently. We've different ways to dress our avie : clothing layers for the default avatar, rigged meshed clothings that requires to adjust your shape to fit in, standard fitmesh clothings that stretch with default avatar shape, fitmesh clothings for one meshbody that stretch with one specific meshbody (maitreya mesh clothings, belleza freya mesh clothings, etc...) and also appliers that paint a clothing on your meshbody. So be ready to hear about rigged meshes, fitmeshes, appliers, standard avatar and meshbodies. And alphas too. That's what is missing to hide your default feet (see Littleme and angeoco posts). For your goal 2, I can't really help as I don't rent on a themed/community sim but one thing I can tell : be careful with the privacy options if you don't want all your neighbors to cam into your house 24/7.
  2. I think you convinced me too.
  3. Friend : "Hey, are you busy?" Me : "Yes, I'm editing an outfit."
  4. What Rhonda said : authentic doesn't mean original. Authentic usually means it's not a copy so and by extension, everything that is not copybotted is authentic on the marketplace. While original usually means unique, created personally. Many event items are original when they're made from unique meshes created personally by the creator.
  5. "Should" is a big word so rather they "should consider". But personally I caution diversity over uniformity. I'm not conformist enough to support this state of 90% event items for Maitreya only that creators are forcing us into.
  6. Right now, the most popular meshbodies (i.e. : those with the widest choice of clothes) are : Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya and Isis (not Venus) and Tonic Curvy and Fine. But I'm not sure it'll fix your problem.
  7. The world is full of petty and rude people and then sometimes they log in SL.
  8. This is usually the price for just the meshbody then there's the head. If you look on this blog : http://meshbodyaddicts.com/ it tells you price and contents for each meshbody. Then I would suggest you look in the marketplace what kind of clothes and outfits you like there and note for which meshbody there are designed for. It'll help you to fix your final choice based on what you like.
  9. They don't change your hover height but we can use them as a trick to modify our overall height, then combined with an alpha it looks like we're adding some hover inches. Depending on the shoes I'm wearing I'm editing these values to modify my height and added to an alpha it looks like I'm closer or higher above the ground which is a trick good enough to adjust the hover height of my avatar (as pictured by @angeoco ).
  10. All the most popular meshbodies allow a great variety of shapes. I've seen very curvy shapes with Maitreya and very slender bodies with Slink Hourglass. Sometimes I'm playing with the sliders on Isis and Freya and it's possible to have very different figures with them. There are also Eve slim and curvy that offers different curves. Tonic Curvy is strange mix with a big chest but a slim butt. And then there's the clothing variety. I believe this factor shouldn't be neglected to choose a meshbody.
  11. I should have mentioned content creators making mesh clothes, I suppose?
  12. Right but on SL, everyone has one curve : Maitreya Lara. Difference is hardly supported by content creators.
  13. And showing skin, preferably lots of freshy skin.
