Have you seen these new LeLutka Lashes for Bento Mesh Head? These are the only lashes I will ever need! I like the default lashes that comes with the LeLutka head but these offer more variety and fuller lash options.

Valentine’s Day came early! This absolutely stunning Angelberry set is from Blueberry at The Epiphany. What I like about this set is that you can mix-and-match the colors to make your outfit unique. I chose Lover and Shine (red and gold) for my look today, cos they pair so well together.

If you bought a LeLutka Simone Bento head, how do you like it? I love it of course, but I’m still waiting for some of my favorite skin brands to release skins. I am wearing an older Lara Hurley skin today, and the fit is pretty good, except for the lips. I’ve noticed that most of the older LeLutka appliers that I have fits okay around the face but the eyes and lips are slightly off. I wore a lipstick applier over this skin and changed my lip shape, but I still want a skin made specifically for the Simone Bento head. It’s difficult to get a unique face when we’re all wearing the same two skins.

I almost never use Omega appliers, cos one size does not fit all. I prefer makeups and skins made for a specific head cos the fit is so much better. And Omega script is slow, so to me it should be a last resort. It is frustrating when a skin I like is not available for my head, but I would rather wait for one that does instead of buying an Omega skin and hope that it works alright. Have you tried your Omega skins on this head? It does not work.

LeLutka Simone 2.0 Bento Head

“Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty.”

As I played with the new LeLutka Simone 2.0 Bento Head, the quote above from Westworld kept replaying in my mind. I just celebrated my 10th year rez day in SL, and I love how advanced and beautiful everything is now. I’m grateful for the creators of SL who are serious about their craft and release outstanding quality products. With every advancement in SL (windlight, mesh, fit mesh, bento), I keep thinking that this is the best it can ever be, and then something else comes out that makes it even better!

I’m sure you’ve seen pre-release info about the LeLutka Simone 2.0 Bento Head and preview pics, so I won’t list all the features. Read the official blog post to see all the technical details. As someone who has worn a mesh head for years now, bento blows my mind because of its editing capabilities. I found a face that I loved from the previous lines of LeLutka heads, but of course I wished there were things I could tweak to make it feel more like me.

The LeLutka Bento HUD is easy to navigate, fast, and includes some bonus features like eye positioning. I’ve worn a separate eye HUD to control my mesh eyes (mostly centering and keeping it still for photos), but now that’s one less HUD to wear!

Look at these expressions! The HUD includes 24 expressions, 6 eyelid settings, parted mouth, blink, etc. If you play around with these, it’s possible to create random new expressions. I predict that there will Expression packs released in the future, so the possibilities are endless.

Eye positioning, the eyelid move with it! I used a separate eye position HUD before, but my eyelid did not move, since it was not bento.

I’m still editing my head, so you will probably see it change over time with tweaks and new skins. Is anyone else as picky as I am? In addition to having a nice front view, I also want my profile to be proportionate and pretty.

Some of my friends have asked me if they should get a bento head, and my answer is obviously yes, but do try a couple of heads from different brands before deciding. I may like LeLutka mesh heads best, but someone else may prefer the HUD/sliders and overall face shape of something else. A bento head still has restrictions, so there’s a chance you will want to tweak something but the slider won’t allow that much editing. For example, I wanted less eye crease, but at 0 setting, there’s still a lot of crease left. On other heads, I could almost squish the eye crease further, but I think sometimes allowing too much editing can deform a face. For now, I am fully committing to this Simone head, but I’m still excited for new faces that I can tweak 😀

There is a lot to say about this mesh head cos it is the best thing released in a long time! I’m super excited, and I can’t wait for all the fabulous skins and makeups that brands will release to go with this head! Do you wear a bento head now? What are some features you would like to see in a future release?

Inspired by Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls, my friend Caroline made Little Stars Hollow and it is gorgeous! Visit the sim if you’re a fan of the show, cos it really does look like it!

I actually got dressed in this cheerful outfit before going to the sim, and to my delight, the patisserie colors matches perfectly.
