As part of improvements to onboarding new Second Life users, a project by Linden Lab known as the “New User eXperience (NUX)” a range of new mesh avatars and clothing has been created. A dev kit to allow content creators to make skins and clothing for the new avatars is also available.

The Sensa avatars are available along with a facility to make selections from the body and clothing choices provided at the time a new user joins or signs up for Second Life (via https://join.secondlife.com/). The Senra Avatars also appear in the Inventory Library for all users and can be copied over to the main Inventory area for use. As usual individual items can be mixed, different hair and attachments added, etc. Skins and shape work as usual and the body and head shape can be adjusted with body shape sliders within the Second Life viewer. Some alternative skins can be found in the Inventory Library for previous starter avatars (Library -> Clothing -> Initial Outfits).

The Senra line of clothing items can also be obtained via the Second Life Welcome Hub which specifically helps new users. E.g. via http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/WelcomeHub/69/138/26
The Senra clothing items initially available there are mainly alternative colours of the initial Senra Library items. Senra items are delivered via a standardised object which attaches as a HUD.
