Hello beauties! As you’ve seen everybody became crazy when Onyx LeShelle from Maitreya released her mesh body and the whole buying experience was super fun, I waited for about three hours at Maitreya’s store to get it, I met new people and met some friends there, seeing Onyx get in and out of the sim, seeing her getting the vendors ready and finally setting the vendors at the store was super fun and exciting. When I finally got it and try it on I’ll just have to say that it was love at first wear and I’ll show you with some explainable pictures why I liked it so much, but I will also tell you what I think about some of the others mesh bodies on sale.
First, what you get when you buy the body: the mesh body (comes without hands and feet attached), hands, feet, a hud to customise your body, 4 shapes, one feet shape for Maitreya’s tip toe feet, one set of lingerie from Maitreya, a hud to change the color of the lingerie and the ribbons that comes with it and an appliers hud for a set of lingerie from Zaara.
With this hud you can customise your mesh body, hide/show alphas, apply clothing and tattoo layers, change skins, feet shape, nail color and length, change the size of the neck and turn on or off the neck fix. The skin presets are for Glam Affair skins, so you GA lovers don’t have to wait for an applier to be released or even buy one.
These are the huds to apply the lingerie set from Zaara and to change the color and hide/show the bra and the panties for the lingerie set from Maitreya.
Here you can see a front, rear and side view of the body with my own shape. I didn’t edit anything for this pictures and it pretty much looked the same as the system shape. I really liked the shape of the butt and the breasts, for me they seem more realistic as well as the feet and hands. Right now there is only one gesture for the hands but I got to know that Onyx Leshelle will eventually do more gestures for them. Anyways I know this won’t be a problem as this mesh body is full compatible with XS Slink hands and feet so you can wear whatever shape you have on the Slink hands and the best part is that they fit so well that you won’t notice them.
With this picture I wanted to show you two things. One, can you tell my body is curvier? Well for those that worry about not been that curvy you actually can if you play with your measure sliders, I uped the fat, body thickness, leg muscles, hip width, butt size and saddle bags to get this shape, so if you play with them you can get the body you want. The second thing I wanted to show you with this picture is that I’m actually wearing a dress with appliers from Alterego, how? well Omega just released the omega system kit for Maitreya mesh body, so everything with omega appliers will work with it, you’ll just have to get the omega system which costs 3L for group members (free to join) and 99L for non members, wear the system relay hud and the applier hud of your clothing choice and apply it, finally you’ll just have to turn on the clothing layer buttons on the Maitreya hud and you’re all set.
- Is fitted mesh so you can play as much as you want with your appearance menu to get the body shape that you like the best.
- It comes with 10 preset skin tones from Glam Affair so for all you GA lovers you won’t have to get appliers for it. Stores like The Skinnery already offer skin appliers, some other stores like Birdy, Deetalez, Pink Fuel, League, and Atomic will also offer skin appliers soon.
- Hands and feet come separate so you can wear your Slink hands and feet. Please wear the XS size for a seamlessly fit.
- Works with omega appliers if you own the Omega system kit for Maitreya.
- There are 3 shapes for Maitreya feet: High, mid and flat.
- There are 5 sizes for the neck depending on the body fat you have on your own shape for a seamlessly fit.
- There are 3 nails length.
- There are 19 colors for hand and feet nails.
- Comes with two sets of lingerie from Maitreya and Zaara.
- Hud is really easy to use.
So what I think of it and the other mesh bodies available? I own WowMeh, Slink Physique, TMP, Belleza Venus and of course Lara and out of all these I prefer Lara in the first place and Belleza Venus. Why? I never liked the alphas from WowMeh I couldn’t manage to fit well my mesh clothing, besides is not available anymore; Slink Physique is very nice but I think it needs improvement on the alphas; TMP I have to tell you guys that this is a body I don’t like at all, sorry to be so honest but I don’t like its figure, I haven’t been able either to fit my mesh clothing well, buying and customising is a bit confusing with the way the huds are designed and it’s not compatible at all with Slink hands and feet except for the deluxe version that costs 5000L; Venus is a body I like a lot, I love that I can change the gestures of the hands only using the hud, I managed to wear mesh clothes with it even though I honestly think that the alphas need a little improvement for example that the chest and back alphas could be used separately, there are various brands that already do shoes for its feet and overall I like the shape a lot.
About Lara, as I said at the beginning of this blog post, it was love at first wear. I love its shape, the alphas suited me really well with my mesh clothing, for example, I can wear a backless shirt as the chest and back alphas can be hidden separately, I like that I can still wear my Slink shoes and my hands with it, the hands are really nice even though there’s only one gesture for them, as well as the feet they are pretty nice, oh and the hud is really easy to use. I’ve seen plurks and Facebook posts about a little bump on the shoulders, bump that I haven’t noticed that much and it does not matter to me at all, actually I think this is the continuation of the collar bones so that part can be more realistic. Overall this is my favourite mesh body and I highly recommend buying it, of course, try the demo before and see if it suits you.
By the way, there are more colors for the lingerie set from Zaara available for sale at Maitreya’s Maistore and also there are 3 pair of shoes as a group gift from Maitreya (Free to join), this will look awesome with your Lara’s high feet.
Note: This is my personal point of view, I wasn’t been asked to make a review nor Maitreya is sponsoring this blog or post. All the explainable pictures haven’t been edited except for cropping, they were taken on mid graphics and with AnaLutetia AvatarOpt2 Whiter windlight. I’m wearing Maitreya’s body on the main picture which hasn’t been edited except for color correction and cropping.
