I don’t do reviews often. I don’t consider myself a “review blogger”. I blog what I like, what I wear, because I like to share — even if it might be things only a few people would like. It’s part of the wonder of Second Life, that there is so much content, and I just want to be an outlet to show it off.
The night before UTILIZATOR’s Kemono avatar came out, I had just bought the M3 Anime Head. I had bought his Avatar 2.0 body previously, to play around with and compare with the WOWMEH mesh body. Both which warrant their own reviews, eventually. Still. I was in the 2.0 body, with odd tiny mesh paws, the leg seam covered up by a sock prim. For the most part, my legs were basically what the Kemono avatar offers, but it does so seamlessly.
When I woke up and saw someone in this body shape, with these cute little paws, I realized I just had to get it. I dropped the 900L and didn’t look back. Primarily because it comes with so much. This is a full avatar. While I’m not wearing the modified M3 Anime head, it comes with one, plus almost a dozen different skin options, and even more face emotes then the original M3. Here is just a small preview:
The HUD it comes with, both the body and the head, adjust to the skin tone you’ve picked, or allow for the application of custom textures, like what I use. The head HUD, beyond the emotes, allows you to change your eyebrows, you have multiple choices for eyes, both the colors and the actual eye detail, including their size. If you’ve never used a UTILIZATOR head before, the customization and wide range of emotion these heads allow you to portray are fabulous. I could go on forever.
900L also gets you ears and a tail, both that can be textured and texture change with the texture you pick, and a fair amount of mesh clothing rigged just for your new avatar. I’m wearing one of the tank tops, though the texture is one I made for myself. The Kemono Avatar also comes with a notecard supplying you with a download link that gives you all the files, uvs, and even the skin psd, so that you can modify to your hearts delight, and even sell your creations for other users of the body.
While I don’t personally buy in to the whole furry scene – the scope of it is beyond me, not hate intended, I have always been a fan of buying furry avatars, even if I was buying them just to use bits and pieces in hybrid avatars. I look forward to all of UTILIZATORs new releases, and will be an avid fan from this point on.
