Genus Classic

After being a Catwa user for the past two years I’ve finally taken the plunge and purchased a Genus head. I decided on going with the Classic as it has the most supplier support from the brands I wear. The face is very beautiful and I was easily able to create “me”.

I did have slight issues with the eyes pointing downward and unlike my other brands like Catwa or Lelutka, positioning them to the correct place was difficult. After talking to a few other Genus users I found I wasn’t the only one with this issue. Most don’t even use the eyes that are included. I was finally able to figure out the HUD with Gogo’s help enough to get my eyes looking forward. I’m normally pretty simple with my mesh heads and I don’t use any of the mood animations, just a simple blink. With Genus however, I don’t even use that now. The ‘simple’ and ‘neutral’ blink animations roll their eyes up into your skull so I avoid them. Hopefully they will revamp them in the future to correct this.

Overall I love the high resolution that Genus offers and applier support is phenomenal so you don’t have to worry if your favorite skin store doesn’t carry anything for it. I’m definitely a Genus girl now. ♥


My outfit is the current new release from Blueberry, the Budgetberry Taylor Mega Pack. For a limited time you can purchase it for 950L, a complete steal of a deal! I’m normally a one color buyer, either pinks or nudes but I love the Budgetberry releases because I can fatpack and not feel guilty about it. They’re so affordable and I hope she will continue to release them and other brands will take notice and start doing something similar. Not everyone has 3-5k to spend on mega packs or fatpacks so thank you Blueberry, you’ve always been a favorite of mine but these have made me love you more.

Fuck It Up

Hi ya’ll ♥, long time no blogging.

Iggy Azalea’s first full length album in 5 years has dropped and I have been loving it! ‘In My Defense’ is perfect and there isn’t a song I don’t love. When I first heard ‘Fuck It Up’ I knew I wanted to do a look for it. So digging through my closet I pulled out my Insta Queen set from Rama. Released back in April for Equal10 this has been one of my favorite outfits on SL to date. Its fun, flirty and has ‘influencer’ vibes.

Side by Side: Maitreya Lara & SLink Hourglass

Hi gentle readers!

I thought I would do a little post today about two of my most worn mesh bodies; Maitreya Lara and SLink Hourglass.

The first thing i’d like to mention is that my shape sliders are the same for each of the bodies, but you can clearly see the difference SLink Hourglass makes for curves compared to Lara. I’ve had Lara for several months now & only just got the SLink Hourglass, but its quickly become my favorite and I’ve found myself purchasing gacha items for it over Maitreya, and making sure packs of clothing I purchase include a SHG version. Only slightly obsessed.

Like I mentioned above, my slider numbers are identical for each mesh body, but SHG improves upon them. It increases my bust, my thigh size and pinches in my waist all at the same time; the difference is really remarkable. Its still my shape, but appears completely different with this mesh body and I don’t mind it one bit. 

Every new release, be it gacha or regular, there’s always a Maitreya version; its many stores main mesh body go to for fit, as so many people wear it, its a sure bet it will be purchased. When I started making the switch from Maitreya Lara to SLink Hourglass, I couldn’t find anybody to trade me gacha items for the SHG comparables, not to mention the price differences which can make your head spin around and spit pea soup.

I’ve only had a few issues getting longer hairs to work with the physics of SHG, but some hair’s don’t work at all, even with a version for increased breast size. This ends up causing some hairs to either goes through my breasts or hover to far over them. Either way its not a pretty look.  

More brands are now including an Hourglass version with clothing releases at events or in house, and many gachas have a separate buy box for SHG.  Its popularity is catching up and hopefully every place I shop will incorporate versions of their clothing for it.  I honestly haven’t loved a mesh body as much as this one and don’t feel like switching back to Lara anytime soon.
