Unexpected updates are the best! LeLutka will release 4 new bento mesh heads on August 8th, and updating all current bento mesh heads to version 3.0. What’s in v3 you ask? The HUD is slightly different, and now there is a Moods tab that includes 12 default moods with the option to turn the head bone movement on/off.
I made a short video cycling through all the moods below, check it out! 🙂
I’m wearing Chloe in this post, cos I haven’t quite narrowed down which head I will wear next. Bento mesh heads have been out for a while, so I feel that there’s enough variety in heads/skins to make us unique looking. Do you still think that “everyone looks the same” in mesh heads or can we be unique now?
What I’m Wearing:
Magika – Written
pr!tyty – Kitty Headband (Spring)
Belle Epoque – Good Golly Miss Molly Dress, Bag 2, Shoes (Pink)
Truth – Margarita & Flower
Teefy – Sienna Dress (Floral)
When I see a skin I want to wear, I will change my mesh head. Pink Fuel released this gorgeous Clara skin for the LOGO Quinn Bento mesh head, and it’s absolutely adorable. I’m wearing this skin in Biscuit tone, which is a shade lighter than Peach (what I wore, when I wore system skins from PF). It felt like forever ago that I wore a Pink Fuel skin, so it’s good to be back!
I am going to rave about Indie Teepee, even though I’m not a social butterfly. I initially found out about Indie Teepee through one of the designers that I follow on social media. I went to shop, but it was delightful that it is not the focal point of the event. Even though it is just one sim, it feels much bigger, and the shopping area is hidden underwater in a very nice under-the-sea themed area.
Just as SL is a home to so many people from all walks of life, Indie Teepee aims to be the roof under which these same people may discover, enjoy and appreciate the diversity and creativity that could only previously be experienced in the real world.
This Kenya II Playsuit from Ricielli is fabulous! Nothing says beachy more than coral, so I added a big splash of coral to my outfit today. I crashed after taking the first picture, and for some reason my hair detached itself, and all the colors reverted to default. This explains why the band on my hat is two different colors, cos I forgot I had originally colored it white. You probably don’t even notice, and I didn’t either until I went to crop the photos.
Do you ever notice tiny “fails” in SL photos? Sometimes I don’t even fix mistakes like hair going into clothing cos I think imperfections make SL interesting. Back in the day…… we were lucky when our hair didn’t randomly attach to our butts.
What I’m Wearing:
Truth Hair – Taren / Hat
Ricielli – Kenya II Playsuit
Gizza – Nautical Set
Ingenue – Velma Wedges (Coral)
The kimono from the Zenith is adorable! Zenith always surprises me with their creativity and ability to create for multiple genres. In addition to casual clothing, sometimes they release these wonderful traditional outfits, including matching accessories. I went to The Epiphany this morning and played just enough times to get the kimono, so I don’t have all the accessories for this outfit, but it’s still amazing! This is my first outfit from Zenith with built-in hands, which I think is neat if I had all the accessories cos they’re meant to go with them. Even if I had the accessories, I’ve noticed that they’re tiny baby hands!
If you want these items, check the Marketplace, I’ve already seen some items listed on there at pull price. I had an interesting experience this morning at The Epiphany. Since it’s opening day, the lag was especially bad. I played 2 machines that took my money and didn’t deliver anything. Then, I won this Rare Analog Dog hair but it was missing the color HUD. There was a free Analog Dog hair pack at the event, so I bought it and saw that it had all the color HUDs, so I tried the Dark Brown one and it worked on my hair. Yay!
I’m not a huge fan of gacha, but I like going for the experience. I use to want ALL the pieces, but now I just try to work with what I have, and enjoy mixing it with items in my inventory.
What I’m Wearing:
Analog Dog – Joy A (Dark Browns) Rare
Zenith – Shen le Kimono(Tiffany)
Zenith – Shen le Headpiece (Lemon)
Zenith – Rainy Day Umbrella Necklace (Golden)
Ingenue – Melisande Heels (Seafoam)
