Donuts, anyone? There are plenty at the Atelier Kreslo Donut…

Donuts, anyone? There are plenty at the Atelier Kreslo Donut Festival waiting for you to gobble up! Or decorate with, as the case may be. I loved the selection and there are many to choose form. There are also these cute signs and dishes for free, too. It’s a small event and won’t take any time! Not to mention, lack of lag is a Godsend. Much like this donut-ish bun hairstyle from Truth. This is is found in a special pack at L’Amitie, a new event (or new to me). The bangs are fantastic and the bow is optional.

I wanted to do a special post today about my favourite topic to talk about, mesh bodies! And I thought to myself; ‘Why not write a review of the Slink Physique and the Wowmeh Silhouette at the same time?’ I’ve been totally sold on mesh bodies since I tried the Wowmeh back when it was still at promotional price, so it didn’t take much convincing to go and get the Physique too, especially since Wowmeh was now out of action for the foreseeable future. But maybe you aren’t as sold? Maybe you want to get a mesh body but don’t know which one would be best for you?

Currently, you can only get the new Wowmeh Silhouette if you have previously purchased the Wowmeh body. Wear your HUD and touch the update button and you should get a package for the Silhouette. Everyone else will have to be patient at this time, Baby Ghosn has mentioned in the Wowmeh support group that it should be coming instore very soon. If you want to see what the old Wowmeh looks like, click here.

I’ve delved through notecards and blog FAQ’s to find you as much information about each body as I possibly can, plus thrown in a dash of my personal thoughts for good measure. So here it is!

The Mesh Body Mashup

All of the photos beyond this point are raw, they have not been edited in any way other than cropping and adding text.

The products in this article were purchased. They were not given to me for review.

Shape

One of the things I know is important to a lot of people when it comes to fitted mesh enhancements is the shape. How big or small it will go when adjusted with the shape sliders, or how it will affect your usual shape. The Wowmeh Silhouette comes with two versions included, an ‘insize’ version, which is made for smaller girls and will fit into standard sized mesh clothes. And an ‘outsize’ version, for those who want a fuller figure, the catch is it won’t fit into standard sized mesh.

Same shape, same appliers.
Skin: Glam Affair – Artemis (Coming soon @C88)
Hair: Dura – Boys&Girls 47
Lingerie: Luxuria – Summer crush (My Attic)

The Slink body was of course made to be compatible with Slink products like the hands, feet and Visage heads. Slink compatibility is important to a lot of people now and has become almost a ‘default’. The Wowmeh does come with it’s own compatible hands and feet but it’s unlikely they will be able to compete with Slink’s now widespread and popular system. It is possible to wear Slink hands and feet with the wowmeh body, but you will need to adjust your shape a little. You cannot wear Wowmeh hands and feet with the Slink body at all.

Skin Tinting and Appliers

One of the things I absolutely love about the new Wowmeh Silhouette is its new skin tinting system. Basically, you just go into edit mode on the HUD and choose a colour from the wheel, when you’re done just touch it and it will apply the colour to your body. Unlike last time, where it was just a set of preset skins you had to hope your skin matched to, you can literally match the wowmeh to every skin, ever made on the grid. This is especially handy if your chosen skin brand doesn’t make appliers. The Wowmeh also has appliers available too, but it’s not the end of the world if you can’t find one for your brand.

The Physique unfortunately will rely solely on your chosen skin brand making appliers. So I strongly suggest checking with your brand before purchasing. There is a list on the Slink Website of all approved designers making Slink Appliers.

Sometimes you may still have trouble with seams around the neck, so you can get a free mesh body blender tattoo layer from The Horror!

As for clothing appliers, the Slink body is capable of utilising 3 layers for clothes and tattoos. So you can layer a tattoo under a bra under a shirt, and you won’t risk accidentally replacing or removing a layer. The Wowmeh also works off this layering system, however there are only 2 layers you can use. So you would only be able to wear a tattoo and a shirt etc. Both bodies make it easy to show/hide different layers via their HUDs.

Alpha buttons and Mesh clothes

Wowmeh Silhouette HUD

The good thing about these fitted mesh bodies is that you can wear both appliers and regular mesh clothes with them, thanks to the alpha buttons on the HUDs.

This is where I find that both the bodies have their strengths and weaknesses. To put it simply, I wish I were able to have the Wowmeh’s front set of alphas and the Physique’s back set of alphas all in one handy dandy HUD.

Often when wearing mesh clothes with the Wowmeh body, the back alphas will erase too much, making it difficult to wear low-back dresses. However, the Physique falls short when it comes to hiding the breasts and chest. But I do like the fact that on the Physique HUD, you can choose to hide just one side of the body.

Slink Physique HUD

Both bodies say that they will fit most standard sized mesh clothing, but you may need to tweak your shape or wear a different size in order to get the best fit possible.

But personally, I lean towards the Wowmeh’s alpha system, because I’ve found it will fit most of the clothes I wear better.

Side By Side

I’ve whipped up a little table so you can easily compare information about the two bodies side by side, I find this helps tremendously when it comes to making an informed decision about which one to buy instead of trawling through websites and notecards. I still of course recommend you try out a Demo for yourself. Both brands include free demos so you can take them for a test drive and see which one you like best (or if you’re like me, both!).

Click to Zoom

I’ve even tested out various other mesh attachments to see how compatible they are with both bodies, but you can do this yourself with a Demo if the mesh attachment you want to test isn’t on the list.

Final Thoughts

I can’t choose a favourite out of these two. Both are amazing products and equal in strengths and flaws. And both are still in development, new updates and fixes will be sent out through redelivery terminals and the like.

The Wowmeh Silhouette has grown in leaps and bounds since the old version was removed after some issues that occurred. It’s now back stronger and better than ever after making some hefty improvements to the mesh and HUD system. This body would be ideal for you if you like to wear skins that do not make Wowmeh appliers because of its amazing skin tinting system.

And of course Slink is a very well-known brand beloved by thousands. Slink’s innovative hand and feet attachments are commonplace around the grid and people were very excited to hear they were making a fitted mesh body as well. Slink’s HUD is much more beginner friendly thanks to it’s one page system, and it’s many clothing layers are great for those of you who like your tattoos and lingerie!

I really enjoyed taking this photo and it was all due to Plethora’s Femme Fatale release for The Garden that made it so much fun! I’m showing just a few of  the gacha items up for grabs. The compact in my left hand has 3 options, sound FX and a pose included. The compact on the ground and the camera also have 3 options each with sound FX. Let’s talk about my gun. I’ve been looking for a well done gun prop for poses and this one has both! It’s available in four colors with the option to scroll through seven poses or even add your own like I’ve done below.

Just taking a little break from work and decided to dance around my house to clear my mind. This dress was designed by Loovus Dzevavo and there are limited copies @ The Couturier’s Docks. Decided to add a little more colors with a vintage style flair to it from Pure Poison affiliated store of Fox Poison . So, I am enjoying my stylish dance around the house right now.
