  1. http://meshbodyaddicts.com/ is a wonderful resource for details on mesh heads and bodies. The page on the Damon head mentions that it goes well with most mesh bodies. Demo bodies that you are interested in, and make sure to demo skins on them as well to get an idea of what you may want. For my male I ended up going with a Catwa Daniel head, Slink body, Vista hands, and a Nivaro skin. The skin is where most of your realism will be coming from.
  2. Makes sure to go to My Marketplace> Merchant Home> My Listings. Things you drag into the Marketplace from your viewer will show up there, however they aren't enabled for sale until you update them as such. You can edit each page for the items for sale there.
  3. A lot of it depends on personal preference. I recommend http://meshbodyaddicts.com/ for in depth information on mesh bodies and heads.
  4. Facelights can help. They're little attachments that shine light directly on the face to minimize shadows. You can purchase them in world or on the marketplace.
  5. Make sure it's turned on, too. I know it sounds like a silly thing, but it's a source of furstration for many people with new AOs. What AO are you using?
  6. Wingless Emoto has a few for free here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/free-furry-avatars-by-Wingless-Emoto/5846626 They're very old but they get the job done if you don't want to pay anything. If you want something of better quality you'll have to pay for the avatars.
  7. Welcome back, Kain! It really depends on what you're looking for. Are you going feral or more humanoid? It's becoming more and more popular to use a mesh body (such as Kemono or Slink) and then purchase the head, paws, tail etc. separately. That said, you can also go the oldschool route and use a predone avatar (such as Luskwood). Some people mix the two, purchasing a premade and then swapping the body out with a mesh body. Depending on how large you want the breasts you may be able to get away with just using a mesh body and adjusting the sliders for breast size.
  8. In addition to Amethyst's spot on description, I recommend playing with some bento demos to see if they feel right to you. You can get free demos for Vista's bento hands and for various Bento heads (LeLutka and Catwa being the two most popular currently). You can play around with the demos on your own character and see if you enjoy the products.
  9. A lot of larger shops have redelivery terminals at the store's location. You could go there and see if the products you purchased can be redlivered.
  10. The Furry Party may be able to help you. They aren't a specific builders group, but they have a lot of members who could likely help you find what you need.
  11. While not identical, this is something similar. The photo is blonde but the product is in blacks and whites: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Wasabi-Pills-Marceline-Mesh-Hair-BW/9621287 There is a demo you can try as well. These are a bit closer, though the bangs are a bit long: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Amacci-Hair-Camari-Black-Pack/7834743 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Amacci-Hair-Amberlyn-Black-Pack/8101170
  12. Just confirming that the relay HUDE from Omega works. I use the same head and have used Omega skins with it Can also confirm that Omaga's Maitreya and Vista relays work as well.
  13. You could do the lazy way and take pictures of the values with your phone, then just scroll through as needed :matte-motes-big-grin:
  14. Glad to help! (And thanks for peeking at the blog, I'm happy it helped you out!) Let us know what you end up going with! I'm curious to see what you choose
  15. You're welcome! You can demo skins on the heads, that way you know exactly what you're getting before you purchase. It's a long process but well worth it if you need a specific look.
