Dabbling with Geralt – Episode XV

Poor little Signature Geralt has been left with his latest look for about three months now, impatiently waiting his turn for a revamp. It’s fun to imagine that the various mesh bodies in my inventory are actually fighting for my attention. Recently Signature dropped an update for both the Geralt body and head and that’s as good a reason as any to have another go at it.

The Signature Geralt mesh body and head now are both BOM-ready. The body has a button in its hud to easily switch from applier skin to BOM and for the head there is a separate BOM activation hud. It’s not easy to find a nice new BOM skin that works with the Geralt head and Recycling an old skin isn’t a good option either. With the November issue of L’Homme Magazine there was a group gift at a place called DNA. It contained one skin in 64 skin tones, suitable for Signature and Legacy with some options for eyebrows and hair bases. One of the cool things about BOM is that you can combine it with Omega appliers. If you were to take my Geralt apart, this is what you would find:

  • Signature Geralt mesh body and mesh head (yes, he’s smirking, it’s an animation)
  • DNA male skin base, tone 30 + Phenotype North-East layer (BOM)
  • Eye brows No. 2 from the Geralt mesh head hud
  • Avi Glam Solstice mesh eyes (using the alpha to hide system eyes)
  • Avenge Face Freckles applier for Signature
  • Stealthic Haunting mesh hair
  • Stealthic Faided Hairbase tattoo (BOM)
  • L’etre Basic Mesh Ears
  • Mister Razzor Facial Hair Luigi Omega Applier
  • Modulus Body Hair Set 1 Omega Applier
  • Facade Gojun tattoo (BOM)

Geralt doesn’t get the same level of creator support as his big brother Gianni, but there probably is always at least one new item in his size at any of the ongoing men’s fashion events and plenty more at stores across the grit.

That’s it for now. My conclusion is that the Geralt head isn’t as malleable and arguably less refined than for example the Catwa, Lelutka and Akeruka mesh heads, but with some TLC it definitely is possible to create an interesting look with it. It’s worth noting that at L$3500 the Geralt head is L$1500 cheaper than the other two brands.
