New Mesh Avatar Attachments Are Adding Oomph to Second Life Booties of Every Size
It was only a matter of time before one mesh posterior rose to power. A booty to rule them all. Certainly CK Winx's Phat Azz, now available at Luck Inc. [SLURL], isn't the first enhanced avatar backside, but it seems to have become a crowd favorite. The Second Life fashion community has been abuzz as more and more designers are adding support for Phat Azz in a trend that mirrors the adoption of Lola's mesh breasts (which I reviewed in the past) and more recently SLINK's mesh feet.
My butt's still parked squarely on the fence. Here's why:
While it's irritating to manually reshape my avatar's backside in Photoshop, it's not something that comes up very often, and as for how things shape-up in world... Well... I don't know that I've ever really worried about it in the same way that I've worried about my avatar's breasts, feet, and hands. I spend so much time focussed on my avatar's front half that her back half is often an afterthought-- I'm just not a booty-centric fashionista. As much as I love the latest new attachments and enhancements designed to hide the many rough spots on SL's ancient default avatar, maybe this particular add-on just isn't for me.
On the other hand, maybe seeing is believing. Did your Phat Azz (ugh, that name, though) help you see the light? Should I try it for myself before I poopoo it? Share your thoughts in the comments below, ideally using as many cutesy butt puns as possible!
