The Big Show!

There has been a lot of chatter in some of the groups I'm in lately, about "the best" in mesh body parts, appliers, retailers, etc. The one place I know to find them all in one handy location is the Big Show.  The Big Show has designers from across the grid, with items specifically made either as mesh attachments (such as breasts, heads, hands, etc.) or for the mesh attachments as add-ons or appliers.

Above:  Of course, I'm drawn to shoes.  It's so hard to decide which new design I want to grab up, though!  There are plenty of great selections to try to choose from, such as these options from Co 57.  You can see how indecisive I was!

A great look for shopping, no?  I'm particularly fond of this skin by 7DS, because of those great lips!  I love that I can manipulate the shape in concordance with the skin, and come out with something that looks so natural.  Reminds me just a little bit of Catherine Zeta-Jones.  Just a little.

So... what I did end up grabbing up, out of curiosity, was a whole slew of mesh demo body parts and this free mesh head from SKING.  They include the other head demos from their collection in the box, so you can test them out and see if there's another you like better.  This one has some skin options, the alpha, the head, and a HUD to customize makeup, freckle options, and expression.  You can not adjust the features with your sliders, so you're stuck with this face once you're wearing it.  I wore mesh eyes with it for easy adjusting.

All said and done, it's going to take quite a bit of convincing (and more L$!) for me to invest in any more mesh parts than I already have.  I am stunned at the progress that designers have made since I started in SL, and how remarkable the mesh creations are.  What's your favorite mesh body part or creator?  Let me know in the comment box!
