The Sugar Garden released a brand new mesh head the other day. Her name is Tsu and she’s been teased to us on Eilfie’s Flickr timeline for a few months now. But she’s finally here and she’s a real cutie! Usually I’m not one for mesh heads but I just had to show you how adorable this one is and take you through some of the features it has!

The Sugar Garden Mesh Head

All photos from here onwards are raw, and have not been edited in any way with the exception of cropping, resizing and adding text.

This product was given to me for review.

TSG’s mesh head is rigged mesh. It’s not fitted mesh but you can still change the size of the head using your shape sliders. And it fits all of the rigged mesh hair I’ve tried on it which is good news.

It’s static, which means it’s not animated (like blinking etc.) but you can easily change expressions using the HUD. And you can also wear your own default/mesh/prim eyes with it.

It’s currently being sold for 3000L$ and includes all of the following;

What’s in the box!

When you purchase your pretty little head, you get the following included in the package;

.tsg. Mesh Head Alpha

.tsg. Mesh Head Instructional Notecard

.tsg. Tsu skin (In the tone to match your head. Bust, no bust, toned and soft-body versions included)

.tsg. Tsu Mesh Head

.tsg. Tsu Mesh Head HUD

I will say right off the bat that I love how the skin is included. Many mesh heads nowadays require purchasing the skins or appliers separately, which can often lead to complaints of people accidentally buying the wrong skin that won’t match their attachments (I won’t lie, I’ve done that before). But not this one!

The HUD

The Hud is very self-explanatory as far as ease-of-use goes. Just wear it and click the logo to get started, then you can choose from makeups, hairbase and eyebrow colours and expressions. There are 16 makeups to choose from, 15 facial expressions and 32 preset hair colours (which you can tint using the bar below). Clicking the buttons at the bottom will take you to TSG’s various social networks where you can stay up to date on updates, fixes and new releases.

The makeups are all really cute and there are many colours and styles to choose from so you can go from sweet angel-face to gothic rocker at the click of a button. And the expressions are so much fun to play around with, and offer more variety and quality than the SL defaults.

Click to zoom

If you happen to detach your HUD, you have to take off the head and wear it again in order for it in sync again. Which might become a little tedious if you’re in a laggy area and want to remove the HUD, but then decide you want to change your facial expression to wink at the cutie across the sim. But it takes not even 2 seconds to sync so it’s not that big of a deal.

When you wear the HUD, it’s kind of small. So small in fact I couldn’t read the text underneath each expression/makeup. And, as far as I know, there’s no way to resize it as of yet. In order to get the closeups for the HUD above, I had to rez it on the ground and zoom in.

Compatibility with mesh bodies

Tsu was designed to be worn with the default SL body in mind, but I know some of you have been converted to the mesh body side and might want to wear it with say the Wowmeh, Slink Physique or The Shops.

Because the Tsu head is rigged mesh and not fitted mesh, you might have some issues with seams around mesh body parts, so I’ve taken a few pictures to show you how each of them fit.

Of course it’s going to be difficult to get it to match The Shops body anyway, since they only work with The Shops skins. The Wowmeh Silhouette does have a little pokey-outie bit at the back but you can’t see it if you’re wearing longer hair, and the Slink Physique fits almost perfectly if you hide the neck part on the alpha HUD.

You can purchase body appliers from the TSG mainstore!

Future plans

Eilfie has mentioned so far that she has plans to make a tattoo applier layer, so that you can add your own beauty marks and freckles to the head and make it totally unique to you. And also the fantasy tones will be coming very soon (at the moment, only 7 natural tones are available).

She has also mentioned on her blog that she will be creating different styles of mesh heads too!

I don’t have any official confirmation on the rest but maybe in future it will be fitted so that it fits mesh bodies better?

Overall

Overall, I think for a mesh head, I’m pretty impressed. Usually I would avoid mesh heads because I’m quite fond of my avatar’s face shape, but actually, Tsu is too adorable to pass up. I might not wear her constantly but I will for sure crack her out again for posts. And the fact that there are plans to make it more unique and customisable to each person (something that mesh heads on the market severely lack) is fantastic news.

Really, the only issue that’s problematic (for me) is the size of the HUD.

Eilfie is very good at listening to feedback and suggestions so I’m excited to see what other future plans there will be.

You can purchase it for 3000L$ or try on a Demo for free at The Sugar Garden Mainstore

Thank you to Eilfie for providing the head for the purpose of this review!

All the schools in my area have broken up for the summer holidays this week. So I felt like doing something school-related was appropriate (that and I could resist this cute gacha uniform from Amitomo at Okinawa summer fest!).

In case you forgot, The Seasons story is still going on until the end of the month. You don’t have long left to grab these cute Betty sandals from Tee*fy or the various art supplies from Xiaj. There are tons of great designers at this event so I definitely recommend you take a peek if you haven’t already.
