Venus by Belleza

belleza mesh body close

So, after reading many reviews I finally had to break down and get the Belleza Mesh Body, Venus. I’m dying to do a review-type post of the 3 mesh bodies I’ve acquired so far, to tell you my favorite parts about each body. For my first “look” with Venus I decided to try a Belleza skin with her. It’s been years since I’ve bought a skin from there so I took a bunch of demos home and decided on Claudia in Medium. All of their skin tones are provided in the hud, and a very large percentage of skin creators are now offering Belleza Venus appliers. A few of the major selling points for me on Venus were: The overall design of the body. I know that it is fitted mesh therefore modifiable, but there is still a difference. The Maitreya Mesh body, Lara is designed to be curvier for example. These are my favorite boobies of any mesh body I own, and I love that it has a large collection of nipple color choices. Not to mention all of the hand poses on your hud. The neckline was also a big selling point because I’ve been having an issue with that with my Maitreya body. It could be my computer, but I don’t think all of it is. I was also pleasantly surprised at the price. It’s still not cheap but it is no 5000 L$ either.

There are so many things to show and tell about Venus and I hope that very soon I’ll be able to create the post I mentioned at the beginning of this one. I can’t wait to try Venus with my Glam Affair skins, so many things I want to do, so little time. I will say this..Belleza’s Venus is my favorite of the 3 mesh bodies I own. I love them all of course but if I had to choose a fav, it would be this one.

Lara by Maitreya

Lara nude fin

Introducing Lara, Matireya‘s new mesh body. If you’ve read my last post you already know how happy I am with mine. It’s everything you would expect from Maitreya and more. Lara is rigged mesh so you can use your sliders to modify her to your liking, or wear the same shape you always do.

Lara comes with a very detailed alpha hud (seen below) which will give you many more options on things you can wear with your mesh body. It also has system and extra layers that allow you to texture the body with skins, tattoos and system clothes from your favorite designers, with the use of appliers.

The second tab on the alpha hud is pre-packaged with 10 Glam Affair skin tones. Woo Hoo!!! I know not everyone wears GA but I’m seeing appliers quickly being made for Lara and in the meantime, their matching system is super easy to use; it’s the same one from the Maitreya Gold shoes. I love that it gives you empty slots to save your other skintones. Just click the slot while you’re wearing a tone that you use often and it’s there for you at the click of the button. The hands and feet are included so your entire body gets recolored by the click of a button. That saves so much time! Also on this tab of the hud you’ll be able to switch your foot shape from flat to medium to high in one click. The Maitreya mesh body is also compatible with the Slink hands and feet size XS.

I also love that you can change your nail lengths on this hud too. It makes it so much easier when everything is right there. You can see in the picture of the hud above that this is also where you’ll find 19 manicure and pedicure choices. A nice variety is offered, and I’ve already seen quite a few Maitreya Mani and Pedi Appliers for sale as well.

hands and feet

Included in the folder of the Maitreya Mesh Body you’ll find an exclusive lingerie set by Zaara applier. A very sexy black lace bra, panties, corset and stockings; all can be worn or just the parts that you’d like to wear (set not shown). You will also find a Maitreya mesh bra & panties set in 16 colors, that is customizable by HUD. (below) They have an amazing fit and the colors are rich and vibrant. There’s also an option to wear either just the bra or just the panties..or you can hide it all and make it visible when the time is right. ~raises my eyebrows up and down~

Lara FREE ling appliersThe free-ness continues with a new VIP gift..or rather giftS from Maitreya. Shown below, 3 pairs of Maitreya Gold Liaison pumps made especially to fit the mesh body!! Make sure to pick up all 3 unique colors!! This group gift will only be temporarily available and those 3 colors are group exclusives, meaning they will not return!

They also have available for a limited time, an exclusive selection of Zaara lingerie sets that they will only sell to Maitreya VIP members. You’ll see them next to Lara and the free gift heels. I chose the nude set and then I got the hell out of there! lol. Second Life can be one expensive hobby for a person with no self-control like myself.❤︎

lara ethereal fin

It’s no surprise to me that I fell madly in love with the Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara, the moment I put it on. And the fact that it comes pre-packaged with 10 Glam Affair skin tones, just about the only line I wear anymore, was enough to make me buy Lara with the faith of not even getting a demo.

There are a ton of features and freebies and I’m almost done with the post that touches on all of that. I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever so I wanted to do a quick post this morning. To tell you the truth I was so excited about Lara when I did the photo shoot I kind of went a little crazy with the pictures and when I sat down to create the post my brain felt like it was about to explode.

I also wanted to remind you to pick up your free New Year Group Gift, Hatsuhi  from Tableau Vivant  (worn in this post). Hatsuhi means “first sunrise” in Japanese..a very fitting name for this beautiful gift. Thank you Tableau Vivant! Make sure you’re wearing your group tag and click on the sign at the mainstore, here. It is absolutely stunning and you get every shade that they have! Put it at the top of your to-do list because I have no idea how long this gift will be available.
