UPDATE: I wrote this in 2021, and have switched to a Lelutka head since then. However, this info is still helpful if you want to change a classic avatar to mesh without spending anything.
Do you still use a classic avatar because it’s “you” and mesh heads and bodies change your appearance too much? If so, I have some possible good news for you. Not only can you upgrade to mesh and still look like you, but you can do so for just 2L (1L for head, and 1L for body). That’s right, keep your classic skin and shape. Look like yourself – but better.
How? Sweet’s Ruth 2.0 BoM Bento Mesh Head. It’s practically free because it’s an open-source project, but it was a life-changing SL experience for me. For ages, I tested expensive mesh heads, and none looked right, but the moment I put Sweet’s head on I knew I was never taking it off. I barely had to edit it because it looked the way I always wanted to but could never get myself there with just my classic avatar.
To be fair, I know I am making this head sound like a miracle. That’s because it was for me, but my friend tried it and wasn’t happy with it. She wanted to make it work, but in the end, she went back to using her classic head. I’m not saying this will work for all avatars, but for me, it has been awesome.
Sweet’s has a mesh body too if you need it. I already had one from Maitreya, but fortunately, the head worked great with it. All I had to do to obtain a seamless appearance was use the BOM option with Maitreya so my whole avatar showed the same skin. No lines on my neck, but I’m 100% mesh.
If you want to make a change, but want to keep your classic skin and shape this is worth checking out.
