Mesh Bodies: Belleza

Belleza, the second most popular female human body maker at the time of this writing, has three female bodies and all three are included in the purchase: Venus, Isis and Freya. Venus and Isis tend to fit average to petite sizes, although Isis has more curves, and Freya is a voluptuous shape.

The bodies are fully featured and come complete with hands and feet. The hands come with 16 pairs of gestures (one for each hand, so mix and match). The feet have 4 shapes: flat, medium, high and one compliant with Just Design shoes.

The body is Omega compatible via an installer (yay!), and the HUD system is nice and easy to use. It has plenty of alpha cuts, but could stand to have some more, like all the popular meshes.

It comes with 7 included skins, and lots of nail color options. The breasts have a normal, perky and pushup shape.

Belleza is priced at 3999L.

- You'll get 3 bodies (see above)
- Belleza has the best weighting I've spotted so far, means very smooth bending without broken bones.
- The rigging is very close to the standard avatar so many standard sized clothes fit well.
- Feet fitting most SLink shoes
- Free applier kit and applier test bodies, so Omega installation is not required
- ARC is acceptable and near the competitors

[-]
- Not that fine are the layers. Them are too close to each other so flickering appears from time to time while using all layers
- Last update summer 2015
- Very less mesh clothes compared to SLink/Maitreya (but see above)

Re: Omega - pretty much all the major bodies have applier kits that are available but the whole point of Omega is that third party designers can design once and fit all. Belleza is not a mere replica of the SL system avatar shape, especially Freya, so Omega compatibility is a plus - especially when it comes to skins.

Another con would be it is easily one of the most inefficiently made, excessively high poly meshes to ever be uploaded to Second Life.

I battled between these two points and compromised by buying Belleza for use on my home sim, but Maitreya Lara for outside shopping trips.

That is how you compromise, right?

I must be going nuts coz I'm at the main Belleza store right now and I can only see the Venus mesh body on sale. I'd like to test the other body shapes too but I can't see them anywhere. Am I missing something here?
.
.
.

Ignore me. They're in the demo pack.

I have to say that although the quality of the body is lovely, it has that weird shine that I've seen on other people's mesh bodies which really makes it look plasticky. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there anything that can be done to matt it down to a more realistic look?
.

Ignore me again. It's under skin effects. I'll just shut up and go play with the hud some more

Belleza Update is OUT! - Mesh Body Addicts

Looks like an update just came out for this body, with 'lite' versions which may be lower poly (see: Mesh Avatars Currently On The Market ) ...

Curious to see how much lower the tri count is on these. o,o Might have to grab a demo.

The option to buy just one of the bodies with fewer features for only 1799L will probably bring them some new customers.

I just wish that it was easy to buy anything other than really skimpy clothing for these bodies. Belleza was my first choice for a mesh body on my main so I bought it but had to switch to Maitreya when I realised that I was going to be pretty limited in what I could wear. I know that Belleza hasn't made it easy either by not being exactly generous in handing out developer kits.

I've seen a good amount of stuff that also includes Belleza sizes and Belleza is pretty much 2nd place when you consider all three body styles being worn. That said, any improvements are welcome and I'll have to take a look at it, although the Tonic Curvy Beauty body is probably the next body of choice for me. Additionally, Belleza is throwing the door open on dev kit applications, so, things ought to change.

Belleza has reopened apps for the mesh body dev kit: https://bellezaskin.wordpress.com/20...ment-now-open/ so hopefully there will be more content made for that body in the coming weeks / months.

I have no idea if the creator reads through these posts. I'd love to see a few simple chat commands for these bodies. It would be convenient if I could change some of the available options on the fly without having to muck about with the hud. Resetting alphas, mesh nipples, and feet styles to name three.

I am just suspicious because Belleza teased, teased, teased with their female body.

Compared to Maitreya, who had their body out a week after I read about it in Ms. Singhs blog.

So, is that male body coming soon? Soon, as before Easter? Easter 2017, they say?

A little more information thanks to Daria of Mesh Body Addicts:

Belleza’s Jake, Animated Objects in SL, MBA Sim move and more! by LilDaria Resident, on Flickr

His name is going to be Jake.

Quote:
The body is Omega compatible (will use an Omega installer)
It includes bento hands and flat feet
The body will come with a Catwa applier (as worn in my main pic) for a skin called ‘Jake’
The body adapts well to both muscular and more ‘normal’ male looks, which I love
It’s gorgeous!

My male alt is demo'ing. He is pleased, or at least I'm pleased he looks pleasing

Now if only Belleza had an Omega/GA.EG/Logo head applier available I would buy it.

It looks similar to Signature. I wonder how the sizing of clothing will work.

Annnd better late but never, but Daria reports that Belleza has finally updated their bodies to Bento. It now has Bento hands and an improved applier system that will allow targeting of where to apply tattoos, etc.
