Let’s talk about the Aesthetic body by Niramyth shown above. This is exactly what I’ve always wanted in a male mesh body! Big, burly, detailed down to the fingers and toes. I love how you can make the stomach area and waist nicely thick. A big problem with other muscular mesh bodies is that the waist and stomach area on them look like you’re a linebacker that wears a corset and also injected saline into your muscles. Not a good look to say the least. There’s no editing done to the photo, it’s all in-game lighting. The detail of it simply speaks for itself. I took my own shape that I use and just tweaked it to fit better. I’m sure it might not look as good on a slimmer body type, for that I would suggest theShops male body. It’s definitely more of a “body builder” type look. It would be nice to have an option for less definition to be “bear mode” or to fit the slimmer types.
I always use Aeros skins and tinting the body texture to fit the Raul skin from them was INCREDIBLY easy. You should most likely buy the Enzo variant of the Aesthetic body because I think matching it to skins would be easier than the darker one. The body hair option is very nice, and it comes with clothing layers that can be Omega scripted to use a TON more appliers. The biggest problem I’ve had with the body so far..maybe actually the only problem is that a lot of rigged mesh clothing simply just doesn’t work. Some larger pants are okay but I haven’t found a top yet that really fits the chest, shoulders and arms, even while using the alpha HUD. The alpha HUD takes big chunks of the body away which can make it a pain to get the exact right fit, I hope to see it become a bit more precise in further updates. Editable prim clothing seems to fairly easy to adjust though.
If you’re a fan of being a huge bastard and don’t care much about wearing certain mesh tops, get this body immediately. It’s amazing and comes with a lot of different options that you can see on their marketplace. The AO that comes with it is great as well which I didn’t expect. At first I was very hesitant to buy the body because of the price (L$2799, yikes!) However, after getting it…I can say it’s well worth every linden. 10/10 all day.
