Hi ladies!! I`m so happy to be able to review the NEW SLINK SHAPE – “HOURGLASS” with you today 🙂 As most reviews have already told us, this shape caters to the masses of SL that prefers a curvier shape than we can achieve with most other mesh bodies. Of course there is pro`s & cons to each of these bodies, but overall I think SLINK definitely achieved what they were asked to do, and that`s to make a curvier mesh body than the original SLINK mesh body “Physique”. There are 2 things that I could only come up with to be categorized as cons, and one would be the hud, it`s a tad confusing, due to that everything is squeezed onto one page, but with a little time and patience you can figure it all out. The 2nd con would be that this is an entirely NEW shape, so there really isn`t much clothing yet catered to this body, which isn`t really SLINK`s fault at all, it`s just the normal process we must go through when something is new. The clothing for Physique will NOT work with this shape, however with a lot of experimenting you can find clothing that you can use until the clothing specifically made for this body starts being released. Applier clothing however WILL work because this shape is OMEGA compatible, so you just need the relay hud to get those to work. BLUEBERRY has given out a fatpack with this new shape as well as included it in the Physique pack, so if you have the original body, just go hit the redelivery terminal to get your update. If you don`t have the Physique, and purchase the HOURGLASS, it will be included in your purchase. I have to say that the community in SL talks with one another, when someone treats people badly, or unfairly, most will hear about it..for that reason alone, I switched back to the SLINK PHYSIQUE shape a while back, solely due to the fact that SLINK is treating everyone equally and fairly, and I think it`s important for us to stand as a community and support those things. I personally didn`t have many complaints with the PHYSIQUE other than I couldn`t get it to be as thick as I`d sometimes like, so the HOURGLASS is absolutely perfect for me, and once the clothing really starts rolling out for this shape, I can promise you this will definitely be the staple shape I`m using in my post 🙂 Go try out a demo, I think you`ll be really pleased ♥
I spent hours trying to find mesh clothing that would fit this shape, and it seemed the mesh Gods dropped a blog pack right into my lap at the perfect time, because ABSOLUTE VENDETTA just put out skater skirts for BELLEZA, TMP, and MAITREYA – you read that correctly, no SLINK shape, BUT, the Belleza Freya, although a tad big at my waist, surprised me and fit over my hips and bum perfectly as you`ll see below. These skater skirts come in 2 versions, solids, & polka dots. I`ll show you the huds below so you can see the patterns for yourself. 🙂 The Absolute Vendetta Skirts can be found at THE MESH BODY ADDICTS EVENT. I`m also wearing knee socks from Muka (the SLINK PHYSIQUE size worked) and FOXES cropped sweater (the MAITREYA size worked). Take notes ladies, I`m doing all the work, lol.
Next, I just have to go over the skin I`m wearing, from DEETALEZ, another gorgeous applier for the LELUTKA MESH HEADS, “Jolie” comes in multiple tones, and each tone comes with all brow options as well as a no brow, 4 lip colors, and 4 eyeliners/shadows. Isn`t she stunning? Another amazing job by Steffi Vilotta (owner of DeeTalez).
I`m gonna move on to THE FREAK SHOW GACHA, because I had so much fun with these poses from ETERNAL DREAMS, Circus Freaks has poses to be an acrobat, a contortionist, or a sword-eater. Try out this gacha, makes for some cute pics 😉
Also at the same event – LAPOINTE & BASTCHILD has the cutest Freakshow Gacha Sneakers. I`m wearing one of the rares below, but I`ll share pics of all of them. They also have a male version that you`ll see a vendor pic at the end. So grab your male friends & go try your luck at this gacha, any of them you end up with are super cute, I love these kind of gachas don`t you?
Finally, we have INSANYA with 2 items at 2 different events. The Bat Bag is at the Pastel Goth Event, and the Star Earrings are at The Black Dot. I love both of these items and both come with amazing huds, so lots of colors & textures to choose from.
Hope you all have fun – I had a blast putting this one together – HAPPY SHOPPING!
