The Cute Little Kemono

Posted By Asia Ristow

In Second Life you can do or be pretty much anything, including a furry. What’s a furry, you ask? Take an animal and mix it up with a human. Think Bugs Bunny, Simba, or Rocket Raccoon. All of these fit the furry theme.

The furry community in Second Life is very active. Many sims exist exclusively for furries, though some allow human avatars in as well. While a lot of furries heavily modify and customize their avatars to have a one of a kind look, this post will show you a very basic and simple furry avatar.

UTILIZATOR’s Kemono

UTILIZATOR is the go to brand for many who want a petite avatar. Their avatar “Kemono” is an all in one furry avatar that can be purchased for L$900. Unfortunately there is no demo available, so do a lot of research before purchasing to ensure it’s what you’d like! If you have any questions about it please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I’ll answer the best I can for you. At the time of this posting there are nearly 200 Kemono reviews on the Marketplace listing with an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

Summer Lurve

Posted By Asia Ristow

It’s bathing suit season! Time for beaches and pools and strolls on the boardwalk. Lurve has created a unique bathing suit to celebrate!

Panni’s Belted Beach Bikini

Lurve has made some really cute products for Fashion Dazzle in the past. It seems that they’re keeping on track with this month’s summer themed goodies.

This suit is so much fun! It comes in three parts: the suit, the belt, and the bows for the back. The belt really makes it stand out as not your average bathing suit. You could even wear tall boots and some accessories with it for a cool summer club look.

The suit lends itself to mix & matching so well. You could easily get away with wearing the top with jeans. You could even wear the top and belt over applier pants if you’d like to! The decorative print on the bikini top makes sure you don’t look too plain. Since it’s a bikini you can also show off any tattoos, scars, freckles, and more than you don’t usually get to show the world.

The bikini comes in five colors: Pink, Blue, Aqua, Violet, and Orange. You can see every color in the pics and credits section below. The suit comes in standard clothing for system avatars as well as appliers for Omega, Slink, Lolas, and TMP.

Panni’s Belted Beach Bikini by Lurve is available exclusively at Fashion Dazzle. Each color can be purchased separately for L$195 each or you can snag all of them for L$875.

Note: Shoes sold separately.

Mesh Crash Course: Selecting Hands & Feet

Posted By Asia Ristow

Mesh hands and feet are a popular option for users with all types of avatars. For somebody who goes full mesh it’s a no brainer. Many system avatars also enjoy mesh hands or feet for various reasons including bento hand capability and a larger selection of shoes. If you have a mesh body it may have come with hands and feet already and generally those are the ones that will work the best for the body. That doesn’t mean you can’t mix and match with other brands if you so desire!

Main Considerations

As always you must remember that what is right for others may not be right for you. It comes down to your own needs and preferences. There are a few things to consider when demoing (yes, you should be using demos) and narrowing the options for your personal taste.

Bento vs Standard Hands

As we already have a whole post devoted to this topic I’ll keep this section brief. Bento hands allow for individual finger movements and standard hands can only stay in one shape. Many people prefer bento so they can make peace signs, hold cigarettes, wiggle their fingers, and more. If these options aren’t important to you the standard mesh hands are also an option. Please note that while there are plenty of accessories for standard mesh hands the options for bento hands are increasing every day.
