Deesses Skins has JUST released appliers for the Wowmeh and Slink mesh bodies. This entry is dedicated to my review of the applier and also to showcase the gorgeous ensemble by Amarelo Manga for Designer Circle round 84 (the only thing not shown are the sunglasses).

The particular skin and tone I’m wearing today are Jamila in flat white on my Wowmeh Silhouette version 1.0. If you want darker tones, then Deesses is where you want to shop. The details on the face and lips, specifically, are exquisite. In order for the hud to work the best, I wore the hands and feet by Wowmeh, even though I typically would wear Slink. The applier hud only works with the newest version of Wowmeh, so make sure you have bought it or updated already.

As with most appliers, you will receive a hud. It takes up a large portion of the middle part of the screen and has all 8 skin tones in it. Something to note is that when you attach the HUD, it might look as though it’s not selectable because a hand icon (on windows) doesn’t show up. At least it didn’t for me. Don’t let that deceive you because it is selectable, just click the body shape for the tone you want. In addition, the hud comes with the two cleavage options of the skin. That’s super handy!

The appliers for slink hands and feet are sold separately, but you will be able to buy them in store near the front door. The only real issue I spotted with the mesh attachments is that depending on the windlight, you can see the lines where each part meets the main body, even though they were all made by Wowmeh. That mostly has to do with the attachments themselves and less with the skin. The same goes for the line between the body and the avatar neck. It’s quite obvious in my photo, so just be prepared for that if you don’t wear a mesh head.

Overall I’m so honored to have been chosen to review the Deesses appliers for Wowmeh. It was fun to poke around and test them out. As a final note, try the lipsticks too! There are a ton of colors and I had to try every single one on before I finally chose the one that best matched today’s ensemble.

Flashback 1950s

Flashback 1950s

The weather is changing where I live. It’s like we skipped to summer, which makes the top I’m wearing today all that more relevant. I wanted to show the two cute items I got at C88 this round and also talk about my newest BIG purchase – the WowMeh mesh body.

The top is called Bardot from Tres Blah and you will find it in four patterns. The cherries are so classically 1950s, or at least the way it’s portrayed nowadays. My grandmother would probably say cherries were too risque back then. The hair is Thelma from Truth, not to be confused with a similar hairstyle from Clawtooth (which is also gorgeous). There is a bow option, but that doesn’t fit with my style at the moment, so I chose to wear it without. Either way looks great and I’m so happy there’s an option.

The WowMeh body… What can I say? The HUD system is really great with the ability to create alpha layers so mesh clothing can fit over the top. Unfortunately, not ALL of my mesh clothing works with it. Of course, none of the skins I currently use (from League and Glam Affair) have the WowMeh appliers, so I grabbed the gift from WoW skins yesterday to wear with it. If you join the group for 350L you have access to another skin which has the WowMeh and other mesh attachment appliers, including for Slink. Outside of the lack of appliers (which will be remedied soon) my only complaints about the body are the inability to make alphas that are even more customized. There is no option for a between-the-legs naughty bits alpha. Also, if you do not wear a mesh head, unfortunately with some windlights you will see a seam between the neck and head. What I do like is the smoothness of the body edges (less need for liquify when editing pictures), the way it molds to the system body and how much better it fits with Slink hands and feet after the newest update.

Can’t wait for more great WowMeh updates! By the way, the price has been rising pretty rapidly, so it might be worth investing in the body now, even if you don’t have appliers for it yet. That’s what I decided to do. Over time I will see if the gamble was a good idea.
