Just last month, I blogged about the SLink Dynamic Hands, and today I bring you the Maitreya Bento Hands! Now that I’ve worn both pairs of hands, my observation is that they’re both quite similar products with each having a dozen or so poses included, along with more options such as the ability to change nail shapes, and control the hand poses independently. Both are also free updates if you already own the hands (for SLink) or the body (Maitreya).
Which hands should you wear? The obvious reason is to pick a pair of hands that you like best overall. I the SLink hands shape, but I love the almond nail shape on Maitreya. Both of these hands include casual hand shapes, in addition to some unique ones so it’ll be fun to swap them out for different photos.
How do you get the free update if you already own the Lara Mesh Body from Maitreya? Just wear your body, you should receive a package automatically.
I just wish I had more time to blog, cos the things released in SL now are the best they have ever been. I’ve worn my dynamic SLink hands exclusively, and buying new nail polishes to add to my huge collection. I bought the new SLink ballerina style nails (@ Skin Fair), and it’s such a nice change from the default shapes. I can’t wait for more rounded nail tips!
Teefy released this adorable Simone Dress (@ N21); I love the pattern! I am pairing my outfit with the Asuka hair from Truth (@ Uber), and wearing the hat cos it has a shade of blue that matches perfectly with my dress.
SLink Dynamic Hands have arrived! If you love bento mesh heads, you’ll love these dynamic (aka bento) hands. I haven’t tried the other bento hands on the grid, cos I was waiting for a release for a body that I do own, like SLink or Maitreya. The bento update is free, if you already own SLink avatar enhancement hands; go to the SLink store to get a re-delivery.
At the moment, the only poses available are the standard ones from SLink hands, but more poses are coming soon. I love that switching hand poses is now done through a HUD – so no more switching hands for different poses, there’s only one pair to wear. The movements are super smooth, and the ‘relaxed’ hands even have subtle finger movements to add more realism.
Do you wear any bento hands? What types of poses would you like to see made for them? Let me know in the comments!
