This is the coolest thing I've seen all day. I managed to run down what I thought was the right maker--Skullis.com, but it must be a one-off creation that's already been sold. Still, amazingly beautiful thing.

Back to the Mesh Around hunt!

(from the scavenging album)

We're starting with Intrepid Designs' "High-Low" mesh skirt in a deep, oversaturated blue. (It's just the skirt and the alpha layer, so I had some difficulty matching the blue tone. Turns out I still have something in Sari Telling's folder that helped. I really miss that shop...) Anyway, this is wonderfully done, moves like a dream, and is a very flattering cut.

(from the scavenging album)

I will tell you now, this picture of Black Rose''s mermaid fountain and benches do not do this thing justice. It's incredibly beautiful, and comes in both an all-in-one set piece (tile circle, fountain base, benches, fountain) and piecemeal--so, f'rinstance, if you just wanted the mermaid fountain on a tile circle, or on the plain stone base, you could do that. Or if you only wanted a couple benches out, not eight, you could do that. Versatile and lovely, too? So going back to Black Rose.

And now, Mayfly with more mesh eyes!

(from the scavenging album)

Strangely, there are no base eyes included in this package. But these are the "Early Autumn Shadow" eyes, and now we'll get into the variations. This one is "W1", which is the eye with the darkest sclera.

This is the "W2", which is slightly lighter...

(from the scavenging album)

This is the "W3", which is the slightly lighter sclera from "W2"...

(from the scavenging album)

And finally, the "W4", which is the eye variant with their brightest sclera.

The notecard that came with these also mentioned that all their eyes come in two sizes, "standard" and "smaller iris", but here's the really quirky thing: there's apparently a clickable script in each eye that can be clicked to change the size of the eye. Remember the clipping problems I've noted with other eyes found on this hunt? Mayfly's solution would eliminate that entirely. Then, once you have the eye sized to perfection, you can click the eye again to remove the script to reduce lag. Perfect.

More to come. (Nearing the end.)
