(I meant to post this last week straight after the SLink reveal, and then I had an accident of utterly stupid proportions that involved wrecking my fingertips with acetone. I’ve been using the stuff for years, then out of the blue last week when changing my manicure I reacted in an almost A&E style! Cue blisters and a mad allergic reaction later and I’m only just starting to be able to type properly, I kid you not! My fingertips are wrecked, and my nails are gone. Oh vanity, thou art a cruel mistress…)
Anyway, to big up the virtues of the SLINK PHYSIQUE you have to be, well, nekkid. No point being embarrassed about it either, because this is a body that you will be more than happy to show off, because it’s just stunning.
If this is the shape of things to come, then I am very, very excited indeed. Siddean has totally delivered on all fronts when it comes to this outstanding product.
The reviews that I’ve seen have generally been positive, and I can completely understand why. This is an easy product to wear, and takes seconds to fit. It’s not earth-shattering by any standards, you won’t find ready made overly-stylised breasts nor will you be faced with a butt the likes of which isn’t normally seen south of Grimsby, but the joy of this fitted mesh body is that you COULD sport such a booty if you wanted. The mesh allows for adjustment to be made, but that’s not really why I wanted to try it….
What I was interested in was curves. I wanted to see if the body made a difference, but in a subtle way, and I can confirm that it does. It adds a layer of finish; an element of polish that you would normally only get when tidying up a picture with photoshop, and yes, nasty, angles and obtuse shapes are a thing of the past. This is an essential product for any aspiring blogger and photo-hobbyist. It just makes your snaps that much better, naked or not. (But especially when naked!)
Of course the fact that you can add this mesh body to SLink hands and feet adds an extra element of win, but it’s the amazing HUD facility to apply an alpha mask to various areas that enables mesh clothes to be worn perfectly that really elevates this product into the stratosphere. There is also a physics option too, to add some bounce, and by gum it works incredibly well!
Despite the advances that this creation has brought to the grid it’s still early days for the mesh body. However, Siddean has laid the foundations for something wonderful with the Physique. Pretenders to the throne will have to work hard and fast to innovate now that the gauntlet has been so firmly thrown down into the sand, but consider how exciting that prospect is for us fashionistas and mesh aficionados. It’s a fantastic time to be an avatar, as the SLink Physique proves. I think it’s perfectly priced for the product too, and worth every penny. All we need now are appliers, thousands of them!
I love it.
And I can’t wait to see what Siddean releases next; hopefully a male version of the Physique. Can you imagine?! Now that really WILL be something special won’t it?
