In yesterday’s post I mentioned the Kitties Lair Lena Lush Mesh Body as my new full mesh body of choice for its curves, among other things. Pink Sugah is another designer making the KL Lena appliers and this dress is offered over at Lubbly Jubblies. Sure does make it simple to not have to worry about lining up those criss crossing straps! The shoes I paired with the outfit from ZOZ were part of the Penumbra Fashion Event that just ended so there may be a slight delay seeing them in the store, but I’m sure it won’t be long.
Another new item I’m wearing today is a skin from Izzie’s called Patty. Isn’t she pretty? I’m wearing an eyeliner over the eyeshadow and a pretty lipstick as well as the face only freckles option tattoo layer, which are all included! One thing that isn’t included or available (YET) is an applier for the Lena Lush Body. But wait! If there’s no applier how did you get such a FLAWLESS look to your skin? Well, I’m using the Izzie’s Lolas and Azz appliers on my Lena body! WHAT?! HOW DID YOU DO THAT? Say hello to the Omega Applier System! WARNING! I’m about to get all technical on how to use an applier conversion kit. If you’re not interested in all that, skip to the last paragraph before the shopping list.
CONVERTING CLOTHES USING THE OMEGA SYSTEM
The Omega system uses a conversion process that allows you to wear clothing made for boobs and azzes with other mesh body parts. It may sound confusing at first, but anyone who has worn the Ghetto Booty (like me) is use to moving NCs around and this is the exact same process. First you need to get the Omega system that matches the mesh body part you want to wear, in this case the kit for the Kitties Lair Lena Mesh Body. Open the kit, rez your mesh body on the ground and move the script from the Omega folder into the contents of your body. Pick up the body and wear it. You are now good to go for ALL Lolas appliers. Just wear the Lolas applier, click it and watch it go on your body. Easy! The butts have never been as user friendly as the boobs, so there is another step to take to get butt appliers on your body. In the Omega folder there is a Dev Kit. Open that up and now you have even more applier options. Find the Omega Combo Bottom Applier in the folder and rez it on the ground. Now find the azz applier you want to wear and rez it on the ground. While in edit mode on the azz applier, move the config NC to your inventory. I move them to the clothing folder of the outfit I want to wear so I know what and where it is. Most are just called CONFIG NC which can get confusing if you just drop them all into your NC folder. Next edit your Omega Bottom Applier and delete the NC that’s already inside. LEAVE THE SCRIPT! Now drop the azz applier NC into the Omega Bottom Applier. While still in edit mode, you can rename the applier on the General Tab to make it easier to know what it is later. Once you pick up the Omega applier it will look no mod cuz of the script that’s inside so unless you want all appliers to say Bottom Applier, rename it before you pick it up. Now you’re ready to wear the Omega applier, click it and watch it go on your body. Yea! That’s the process for wearing clothes with the Omega System, but I’m wearing a skin. Does that make a difference? Yes, just a little bit. Enter the Omega Skin Applier Kit!
CONVERTING SKINS USING THE OMEGA SYSTEM
ANOTHER KIT? Yep. Luckily it’s all included once you buy the Omega Kit for your body part. Just need to open the skin applier kit and now you have even MORE applier options. To convert a skin like I did with Izzie’s Patty, rez the Omega Body (Upper Skin), Legs (Lower Skin) and Nipple Appliers on the ground. Now rez your skin’s Lolas and Azz appliers on the ground. The azz is simple. Just follow the clothes conversion from above to move the NC from your skin’s azz applier to your inventory then into the Legs Applier. Done. Boobs are more fun to convert, but aren’t boobs always more fun anyway? With my skin there is a base and then nipple options. While in edit mode for the Lolas Appliers, edit linked parts and click on the button for the base skin. Move that NC to your inventory then into the Body applier. Pick that up and you’re done with the Body applier. If the nipples are already on the skin itself, you really are done. Just attach the Body and Leg appliers you just made, click and watch your body transform! I like nipple options so I took it one step further. I edited linked parts on the Lolas applier, clicked the button for the nipple I wanted and pulled that NC out to my inventory then into the Nipple applier. Pick it up, attach it, click it and watch those nipples go BAM! Don’t worry, once you do this a few times, the conversion becomes very simple.
CONTACT DESIGNERS FOR LENA BODY APPLIERS
What if you like the Lena Body (or another body part), want to wear your fave clothes and skins and don’t want to deal with a conversion kit? Send a NC to your favorite skin and clothing designers and respectfully ask them to take a look at the mesh body part you wear. There are so many options out there and designers can’t be expected to make an applier for every single option there is. It takes too long for one thing and they might not be aware of the body part for another. In case they aren’t aware of the body part, the NC can come in handy. I contacted Izzie about a Lena body applier and she hadn’t heard about it cuz let’s face it, everyone is talking about Slink Physique, Belleza Venus and The Mesh Project. Let your fave designers know there are other options out there! But WAIT! If you can convert your skin with Omega, why would you need Izzie to make an applier? Many reasons. First, I don’t want to have to convert everything I wear! It’s so much easier to wear the Lena applier, click it and go. Second, I want more options! If there is a Lena body applier, she could make cleavage and no cleavage options, body freckles, the no nipple option she offers for those of you needing to be a little more conservative, even something going on in the hooha area in the form hair or not. SO MANY OPTIONS! Also, a conversion is never going to as perfect as an applier made specifically for the body. Some skin appliers can’t be converted (one I tried put the nipple on my belly button) so in that case I NEED a Lena applier. Finally, I want to support the mesh body by supporting the designers who create for it. The body will not survive or be updated if no one is wearing it for lack of clothing and skin options. So NC those designers, especially Izzie Button cuz I told her to expect all the NCs, asking for the Lena applier! Really, she’s expecting your NCs so don’t let me down out there! I think I talked enough today, but I hope it was helpful and now on to the credits!
