We wish to encourage everyone to attend the One Voice Fundraiser to help with the legal costs of fighting this injustice. This event will run until July 16th and takes place at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Mesh/92/84/22.
Salome Strangelove, another person we have long admired, put together a wonderful guide to the fundraiser on her blog, Salome Says.

This is a new hair from Exile, simply called Group Gift. It’s free if you’re a member of Exile’s subscribo group. If you’re not a member yet, you can still join and grab the gift!
The group gift is MESH, so you will need a current viewer to see it. The texturing on this is wonderful. From what I’ve been able to see so far, a lot of texture placement has to be done outside of SL while you’re building the mesh. It’s great to see such detail put into this hair.
Exile’s Group Gift hair comes in two colors. Shown is the brown with purple highlights. There’s also a blonde with blue highlights. The highlights are mild enough not to be overbearing. It includes an alpha layer to hide any bald spots that may show up on your head.
If you’re still curious about mesh, this is a great hair to try out. :)

I really had to show the back on this one, because that’s where most of the wonderful detail is. It’s very loose and tied with a claw clip. The length down the back is a separate attachment, so you don’t need to worry about it flying everywhere when you move your head.
It really feels like an autumn hair style to me, so I had to wear it with my new mesh outfit from JANE. To add a bit of fancy, I have on a jewelry set from MOOD. Details below!

This is a new style by Discord Designs, named Kaycee. I love Kalli’s style. She makes unique braids that are highly detailed and they always fit my head with little adjustment.
Kaycee is wonderful cornrow style that goes down the back of the neck, and then turns out in a deep wave. This design would work well for both men and women!
I look forward to seeing more of your work, Kalli!

It’s called Aria, and it’s available for L$250 for the color packs, and L$1500 for the complete pack. I added the flower to my hair from Artilleri. The hair is very full over the chest, and since it’s full mesh, it moves with you. I’ve been wearing it for a few days, and it’s been very fun! The hair includes both an alpha and a hair base as well, to help you in case something sticks through. This is a very nice option, since we cant modify the shape or size of the hair.
I’m looking forward to seeing more mesh from Wasabi Pills! :)

With the new mesh feature in Second Life, we’re seeing many more designers using it in their creations. Hair is no exception, and I’ve been excited to see what would be made as soon as I heard about mesh. :)
I’ll start off this post with a new mesh hair from Alice Project.
This hair is called Sohee, and I found it on the SL Marketplace.
At first glace, it looks just like a sculpted hair. It’s pulled into a side ponytail, with the longer strands sitting both in front and behind the avatar’s right shoulder. I decided to keep the lighter color on it, instead of wearing my normal dark brown/black. The texture work is lovely and AP offers many options for darker, lighter, or wild colored tips.
So what’s the big deal about mesh? I’ll be happy to show you:
I deliberately chose a pose that was impossible with sculpt or prim hair. However mesh hair moves with the avatar, so we can see that everything remains in place against my back and chest, no matter how I move my head! With sculpts, I would have spent a long time trying to find a pose that made sure the hair didn’t stick through me.
So this is very exciting to me! I am happy to try this new feature and use a new client, if it means no more stiff hair! Additionally, the mesh is ‘rigged’ to your skull, which means that it adjusts size depending on your head size. Hopefully this means that more varied avatars can wear mesh hair, including those who RP children or other small avatars.
The down-side is that you cannot manually resize a mesh hair. It moves with your skeleton, and is firmly locked to it. This will cause a problem if you need to adjust a strand or move the hair up/down a notch. It would be impossible. Designers are trying to work around some of these issues by offering different basic options, however it may be some time before we find mesh fitting everyone.
