Tithis String of Tideborns has been a friend of mine for a couple of years. Greek by birth, the sea is in her heart and she’s long been my favorite Mer-designer in SL. Wildly talented, with a great eye for fantasy, practicality and color; with the advent of mesh in SL, it was only a matter of time before she produced a fully mesh Mer Avatar.
She’s a really fantastic build, well-proportioned, great detail. The blend between woman and fish is smartly done, and the whole thing moves beautifully. Even more so as there’s an add on Hud to ensure the mesh tail moves in sync with older Mer AOs that were designed around flexi-tails.
When you purchase the Xothian, you’re choosing the skin tone. You get your choice of 10 differently colored tails, and as many differently colored eyes and nails as well as four different makeups all controlled through a single HUD.
There’s a LOT to love here. Tithis even made an armor set that fits perfectly and adds that extra bit of bling. She has plans to release a male version, as well as new Mesh Avatars that are only limited by her imagination.
There’s enough room for customization, I think, that you won’t get a lot of samey samey that people fear when it comes to Mesh in SL.
So if you’ve ever had the urge to learn if it really is better down where it’s wetter; the Xothian is a worthy investment.
