  1. We continue our Made in Second Life series with a focus on BeSpoke Caravan, a collective of artists and designers creating some of the finest fantasy mesh heads and avatars in Second Life. “Second Life is a huge untapped reservoir of untapped creative power”, says Mud, head of the artist collective Bespoke Caravan. Together with Harry and Xain (who hail from Pakistan) Mud and Genamalfi create fantasy mesh heads out of their Southern California home. They distribute their wares worldwide, by providing ways for deep self-expression for thousands of Residents in our virtual world. The power of immersing via digital embodiment in Second Life should be obvious, says Mud: “ When you identify as something that's not even your natural body, the physical body can have a rest behind the computer screen while you engage with other folks in a transcendental way. There is magic in that!” Bespoke Caravan is a perfect example of the unique possibilities of Second Life, especially when it comes to forming small business entities without geographic or other limitations. Genamalfi, a former jewelry designer with many Hollywood celebrities being her customers, learned 3D modeling from Mud at an age when most people retire. The strenuous work with chemicals and sharp objects, required in her former profession, has now been replaced with a handful of software applications and access to a universe of imagination - and many adoring fans of her work - always within reach, inside the computer. The three young men by her side agree that becoming one with the conception of oneself, within the context of playfulness in the metaverse, is a wonderful way to express creativity and stay feeling connected in a complex world that is often dominated by anxiety and isolation. Genamalfi loves her crew and she loves creating tools for self-expression. She distills the importance of playing with avatars in Second Life in one sentence: “At heart, we're all children sometimes, and sometimes we're all ancient beings.” Tap into your creative side and teleport over to BeSpoke to try a fantasy avatar. Video Production by Draxtor Despres BeSpoke Caravan Visit the BeSpoke Caravan, Second Life's premier resource for fantasy mesh heads. They aim to enable people from all walks of life to fully live out their authentic selves. Meet their community, find fellow fantasy enthusiasts, and begin a new adventure. BeSpoke, be brave, be You!

  2. I've come back to SL after having left before mesh was a thing, and I'm a little at sea. My current avatar face is kind of what I want, but none of it is mesh. Is it possible to get a mesh head and skin etc that looks old? Any recommendations?
  3. Hello! i'm new to second life and i'm slowly learning blender. if i bought a 100% complete avatar like the one bellow, what would i be getting with my order? i'm interested in taking it into blender and modifying the mesh file and then bringing it back into second life. is that even possible and does this listing support it? https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Reprints-Superior-Iron-Man/9837304
  4. With this thread I want to encourage residents which either gave up to learn BoM or consider to start to learn BoM and wonder, if it is worth while. Feel free to add you own pictures, edited or not.The only requirement: the displayed avatar must be built with a mesh body/head/, classic skin + BOM. No skin appliers please. Please add a short info, what mesh body/mesh head brand you used. I would be glad, if some find it a good idea. Ok. I start with a Kalhene Anya meshbody. The head is Kalhene also and comes with the body. The skin is a random skin I purchased on the market. Random means, it's not meant for a specific brand. Shape is my own creation. The pictures are not edited. I use custom EEP light settings.
  5. Hello, As a proudly tall woman who prefers much shorter men, a few months ago I was looking for shorter men in particular and I made a forum post discussing this matter: https://community.secondlife.com/forums/topic/458807-where-to-meet-cute-shorter-men/ It was an antidotal reaction to the widespread presence of the tall, muscular, hyper-masculine, hulking brutes you see seemingly everywhere. In the end, I established that guys with particularly short yet adult avatars (not kids) which served as a reflection of who they were, personality-wise and more or less in reality were exceptionally rare, limited to a small number of groups specially catering to short guys, tall women, or both. Most people in these groups aren't online very much, and I've basically exhausted these groups, having met most of the active members and not having a good experience with some. So I'm now wondering; Where do men with ordinary, average-looking "normal" avatars tend to hang out? The ones who aren't so muscular, tall and hyper-masculine, yet not particularly short (that is, much shorter than the default avatars you sign up with and much shorter than most human avatars you see, but not being a tiny or a child) Where are all the skinnier guys, the cute Asian boys (not femboys) and those guys who don't have six-packs, massive arms and sharp, chiselled jawlines? Where are all the prim, modest, anodyne, intelligent, sweater-wearing types who look like a young Mr Rogers, Yves Saint Laurent or have a Clark Kent likeness or persona? (as opposed to Superman) Where are those with flabby cheeks, messier and simpler hair, guys who are overweight or obese and don't mind showing it in-world? Where are those with disabilities and other insecurities they aren't afraid to show? Much older men with matching avatars also tend to be naturally more prosaic in appearance as they grow shorter and have visible wrinkles... So where can I find folks with avatars like this? It does seem that every now and then I do come across people like this, far more often than I think, far more often in general, and especially more often than men who are particularly very short. But still not as often as I'd like, compared to everyone else, who has a big, overpowering avatar. They tend to be much simpler or plainer in appearance or have very basic avatars and I have seen them among other places in airports, train stations, hospitals, intellectual places like discussion centres, spiritual sims, camping sites, and roleplay communities. New people also tend to be like this, but they then feel the need to eventually turn into those massive Hulk Hogan or He-Man clones as they learn more and improve their avatar. I've also noticed many of these people with these simpler avatars have been Second Life residents for at least 9-12 years. I suspect the modesty and comfort in themselves comes from the experience - they don't need to dominate every situation or overpower others with their excessive confidence and are comfortable with who they are; thus, the avatars reflect this. So how can I increase my chances of encountering folks like this? Where do they tend to congregate? What are some good places or groups for this? Thank you all so much, - Charlotte Sinclair
  6. Hey guys, Noob player here with a 2 part question; 1. Can i create an avatar to look like me? As in, Can i hire a 3D Graphic designer online to create one that will look like me or are we limited to what SL provides us with? 2. Can we have multiple avatars that we can switch back and forth from? Sorry if it may come across as a noob question but literally just started playing 3 minutes ago. Thanks again
  7. I abandoned my SL account before mesh was a thing that was in full swing, I came back due to an RL friend wanting someone to run her group and boredom. What are the reccomended bodies and heads that are on the market today? I've got a decent line of reccs on hair and skin, I'm learning about BoM now as it seems to be more of what I'm use to in a way, back when early mesh clothing and hair clipped through your avatar and required full use of alphas. I'm a girl, btw. Forgot to mention that. I plan to dive back into the adult communities I was apart of and I know a lot of people are really shallow on looks, so I want to try looking my best

  9. I'm just curious - what have you come across inworld that you have found interesting, funny even? Anything really, including avatars. Mine so far: 1. I often see this fox av who would probably qualify as a griefer and is often at this public sandbox dressed as a bride with a complexity level over 400k. This fox bride hangs around asking everyone for their hand in marriage, and sometimes asks them to buy her a new L$1500 wedding dress. Creepy. 2. I see this dog av who busks at shopping events a lot - kinda small and kinda cute, and... 3. One time I walked over a rug that greeted me with "hey beautiful" and it turned out to be an actual avatar who planted himself on the floor of a store, greeting ladies as they pass by. Also creepy. How about you?
  10. Hi! Coming in from IMVU, and I'm looking for some help in recreating a couple of my avatars that I made over there, want to bring here, and would like to get something here that'll get me a similar look to what I've created over there. But I don't know what search terms to use in the marketplace or even if what I want is in the marketplace. Or if I would need to commission someone to make it for me. Would anyone here be so nice as to lend a new player a helping hand? Thanks! The items in question.

The market place is huge and kinda daunting to someone new and unfamiliar with it. o.o
  11. I am trying to bring a few people over to SL, most of them will be role playing partners who are sissies, femboys, ect. I have a few cheap starter bodies in mind for them, to see if they enjoy the game. But I want to find them something good if they decide to stay and want to invest in it. I've been looking at V-Tech mod for Maitreya Lara body which I use. I think that would work for them, but looking through marketplace I don't see much available for it... or can I just use regular Maitreya clothes with it? Does anyone have experience with this. I would like to find something that would possibly have quite a bit of outfits to go with it. Thank you for any help you can provide.
  12. Rate my avatars. Which one do you think looks the best? 1 ) 2 ) 3 ) 4 ) 5 ) 6 ) 7 ) 8 ) 9 )
  13. I assume Zindra is #1, but I know prices are too high, and I don't need adult land. Maybe Nautilus has a high population, but I want a continent where the main transportation is not sailing. I want a place by the road if possible. West Sansara, Bay City, is too expensive. I seem to remember someone said Jeogeot, but I can't recall when or who said it. Is the Wiki updated and correct? I don't know if it is correct when it says population med-low. And that is so generic. I like a place where I am not the only green dot. I am in CET, but does the time zone matter? So many people log into SL early or late for them, no matter where they live.

  15. I can't wear any of the avatars in the library. I chose Illiana as my starter but I wanted to try on Kara. I drag the folder onto my avatar and all I get is the shape and nothing else. The same with Morgan and Leah. What's the issue and how do I fix it?

    I want to delete my avatar and choose a new one. But, when the "Choose an Avatar" window opens, it shows NO avatars. I have clicked on all four buttons (New, Fantasy, Vampires, and classic), but nothing comes up.
  17. Is the Universal Avatar an idea whose time has come? https://sansarnewsblog.wordpress.com/2017/11/28/the-idea-of-the-universal-avatar/
  18. Hello lovely people, I have been using an avatar with an inbuilt head for some time and have just switched to using a Maitreya Lara body, which does not come with a head. And this has thrown me back into beginner territory.... I have been told that I just need a *skin* in order to choose a nice new face. So... I reset my body to a standard SL 'classic' female body and then added the Maitreya Lara body and alpha. So far so good... I have the nice new body and the standard SL head with its face poking out the top. I have one of the Maitreya *shapes* worn. I then went to stores 'LAQ' and 'Catwa'. Ignoring their (great) 3D mesh heads... When I try some of the *skins* on sale the new face gets applied but looks all distorted. But in some cases you get a *shape* with the skin and this fixes it. But this shape seems to override the whole body's shape as well as fixing the face. I am going round in circles not really understanding shapes, skins and heads! *cries* In short I have three questions: Do I need to buy a base Catwa or LAQ (or some other) *head* in order to apply their skins to it? Or should they work with the default avatar head underneath (i.e. without masking it off) What about shapes? Can I keep my own body shape and then use a 3rd party skin (for the face) or will I always have to use the shape that comes with the skin? Can you have a shape for just the head and a shape for the body or can you only wear one shape overall? If anyone can help me untangle this I will be very grateful! Thank you! Katy xx

    Why women in SL have very wide hips? Is it a trend?
  20. One person says her ring increases her complexity level by a lot. Other people say you can look fancy without having a high complexity level. Is it possible to lower the complexity level of one piece of clothing? I want to know how to lower the complexity levels of individual pieces clothing so that the items will look the same, but with a different complexity level.
  21. Does anyone know anyone who can make good avatar bots? I want to use avatar bots (that look like human avatars, but can be centrally rather than individually controlled) to do data visualisations. I'm hoping to find someone who can help with both the avatar and the scripting side of that. Any leads to people with those skills who might be interested would be appreciated.
  22. Hello, I'm looking for someone who might be able to help with a project using avatars for data visualization. The idea is to be able to get avatars to move to a location based on the output of statistical analysis. I would appreciate leads to anyone who has those skills and might be interested. Thanks!
