A Bit of Ostrich for a Joke

Photo by Jerremy Darwin.

"Hi, Honey. You have a box on your head."

"I know. Do you still love me?"

I've been slow to jump on the mesh bandwagon. There are two main reasons for this: my husband Jerremy can't use a mesh viewer right now and I have just not had the time to fuss with sizing and adjusting for it.

Anywho, I recently saw a hairstyle that was cute enough to get me to dip my toes into the meshy waters. Sadly, it pokes into my ears and, since it's no mod, I am at a loss about what to do. I've seen this particular hair blogged a lot on the fashion feeds. A lot. Like, when the hair first came out, it was in every other post. "Was I some wide headed mutant?" I thought to myself. I went back and looked at some of these posts and realized that the headband pokes though many of their ears, too! The fashion bloggers are just trying to hide the ear poking using carefully posed avatars... and voodoo.

Speaking of voodoo, someone suggested that I change my shape in order to get my ears out of the way of the hair. Sadly, I can't. The width of my head is the key to my charm and beauty. Don't believe me? Look. This is my normal shape - complete with my hideously huge ears, but posing carefully to hide them - with nothing changed:


Now, this next photo is me after narrowing my head by only one slider point:

I'm unrecognizable! It's a good thing Jerremy loves me...

...because I adore the hair!

  1. Did you try different Alpha layers ? I sometimes add alpha layers that came with different items to hide certain body parts.

  2. Hi, Julia! The ears are supposed to show in this style so an alpha layer wouldn't work. I just won't let anyone see me from the side!
