– Mesh body parts required for all items
– Zero-spend look (unless you’re buying the heads and bodies)
Well the big news around the grid this week is the HUGE sale at The Mesh Project. Back in November last year I blogged about how to get hold of the freebie TMP bodies. These have now been withdrawn from sale and instead TMP are offering their full deluxe male and female bodies for L$500 each and their deluxe non-Bento heads (they don’t yet have any Bento heads) for L$500.
However, if you did pick up the freebie bodies the big news is that ALL of the clothing, footwear, and other accessories in the TMP Boutique are now absolutely free! So Mar’s alt decided to get some Oscars glam on after a humungous shopping trip that lasted almost two hours (and which was, frankly, rather exasperating and exhausting, thanks to the shopping HUD system there). But hey, free clothes and shoes, and they are gorgeous!
Strawberry Singh has a great blog post up with more details about both the sale on bodies and heads and the free clothing. I highly recommend watching her video, here, where she shows you how to use the shopping HUD and Style Mode HUD.
As the above image states, there is a caveat emptor, or ‘buyer beware’. This sale is only temporary, and while there are one or two rumours that TMP are going to be bringing out new Bento heads and bodies, there are even more (and bigger) rumours that this sale might be coming prior to a switch-off of the external servers that are required to run the whole Style Mode system, which is crucial for changing your clothes and skins, adjusting your heel heights and hand poses, etc. As many others are saying, I don’t recommend buying the TMP body and head as your main body and head. Fewer and fewer creators are making for it these days, but if you don’t change your clothing all that often, and/or you just want to kit out an alt in all-mesh on the cheap, then by all means head to The Shops and pick up the free clothing for the freebie body and/or the sale heads and bodies.
The sale is on at The Shops right now, but there is no indication of how long it’ll last for.
