– Mesh body parts required, well… because this IS about a mesh body!
– Minimal spend look, just L$1!
Mesh bodies and heads have hit the grid in a big way over the past couple of years, but the one thing most of them have in common is that they’re flippin’ expensive! Not good when you’re trying to live an SL4Nowt-y kind of life, but I have a solution for you, and it’s the free mesh body by The Mesh Project.
The body is feature-limited (as you would expect from a free version of something that normally costs several thousands of L$!) but it comes with a lovely selection of skins, plus a free dress and three heights of feet. I’ve even found a pair of dollarbie heels on the Marketplace, which match the colours in the dress and work with the free version’s Style Mode HUD!
Here, Mar is wearing a combination of the Linden Lab default avatars ‘Shawna’ and ‘Maria’ (which we all have in our inventories). The colour match with the TMP skin tone is 99% perfect, which was a fabby surprise that I really wasn’t expecting!
(Note: The dark line down the inside of her arm in the following pic is a shadow, not a flaw in the body or its skin.)
Mar has teamed it with some gorgeous freebie jewellery by RealEvil:
And some great dollarbie heels for TMP Mid feet by Horacia Hoof of H.H. Designs:
Lastly, the hair in the first piccy (and the one below) is from Rezology at The Free Dove, and – again – is absolutely free!
Hop behind the cut, because shopping for the TMP freebie and then styling it using their Style Mode HUD is a little bit complicated, so I’ve create a tutorial to help you out :)
