Never be afraid to try something new.  Remember, amateurs built the ark.  Professionals built the Titanic.  Author Unknown

Ever since Second Life released BOM (Bakes On Mesh), I’ve been patiently waiting.  Waiting for Firestorm to update their viewer.  They did!  Waiting for the skin maker of my choice to create some BOM skins.  She did!!

Shantia Soulstar of Amara Beauty has been my skin maker of choice for the past 4 1/2 years.  For this round of Shiny Shabby, Shantia released a BOM skin named EVE.  How poetic.  I wasted no time in heading there and picked up the DEMO.  It took all of a few seconds to know I would buy it.  It is a near-perfect match to the skin I purchased from her two years ago and have worn each and every day.

What do I love about BOM?  The ability to apply a skin and then add multiple layers.  Now, I’ll admit I don’t wear any ink, but to be able to wear a breast veining layer without my mesh nipples glitching is a plus, plus.  And I look forward to the many facial makeup options I will have at my disposal.  I know that people talk about the advantages of wearing system clothing again, but I am not fully on board.  I always detested the mismatched seams at the sides of system layers, and I am not a fan of the painted on look.  That being said, I do have a few mesh outfits that incorporate system layers.  They are gorgeous creations, and I intend to feature them here very soon.

I’m patiently waiting to receive my updated Maitreya mesh body.  In the meantime, I am going to have fun with this new feature.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
