It felt like just yesterday that I left Genus behind and made the switch back to LeLutka Fleur, but it has been 10 months since Fleur released, according to my blog history! And now 10 months later, I am making another mesh head change to the latest LeLutka Evolution X Avalon mesh head.
Have you ever felt that you needed a push to make a change? That push for me came on Friday night when I saw that LeLutka released the new Fleur head. It brightened my entire weekend, and I spent hours working on my new face. I try to recreate my face on many different heads, which isn’t impossible if you choose the same products (skin, eyes, etc.).
Making a new shape is something I enjoy doing, but I see many of my friends struggle with it. Even though I have a LeLutka evolution shape that I made for the Lake head before, it did NOT fit Fleur at all. The eyeballs popped out and the face looked like a deflated balloon. It almost turned me away from the head, but I decided to think of Fleur as a whole new ‘brand’, and went to work giving myself virtual plastic surgery. LOL!!
When I choose a new head, I always make sure I find the skin that I like to pair it with before spending hours making my shape & purchasing. Fleur just released less than 48 hours ago, so there are very few skins made specifically for Fleur. You may think that because a skin is labelled “for Lelutka BoM” or “for LeLutka Evolution” it would fit on ALL of the heads, but you would be very disappointed.
Take a deep breath. Bakes on Mesh arrived on the grid 6 months ago, so you’ve either had a chance to play around with it or you’ve completely ignored it – until now. Go back and read the Bakes on Mesh tutorial part I, by Aemeth and part II by me. Then ignore everything you’ve learned because LeLutka is doing it differently than the existing workaround.
LeLutka just released two new mesh heads, Erin and Nova, featuring a brand new HUD with tons of cool new customization features and new high-definition applier layers, so most of your existing appliers will not work. I don’t really want to get into all of the changes, but from my brief glance at the heads, I foresee massive confusion on the grid.
Do you have a signature hair color that you’re known for wearing? I know many bloggers that commit to a specific shade of hair color, so they’re always recognizable. I think my preferred shade is blonde or brown, when I’m going for natural hair colors. When I’m in the mood for something fun, I like pastel shades like pink, teal, baby blue… etc! A good color palette should be soft and ethereal, like Exile’s Wildcard set of colors (I’m wearing The Idea of Her hairstyle).
Glam Affair just released the Enea (LeLutka Applier) Skin. I couldn’t have found a more perfect skin to wear with today’s look, cos the eye shadow matches perfectly with my hair color!
My outfit today is the Coco Flowy Top and Ainsley Skirt from Teefy. This outfit comes in some cute prints that reminds me of the 70’s! Someone invite me to a 70’s party!
I’m ready to waltz around the garden in this gorgeous Blush Dress from ANE. The dress features a sheer and classic version, and a HUD to change the colors of the dress and leaves. I’m wearing the sheer version in a soft lilac color, with silver leaves. The sheer version of this dress has tiny mesh holes, it’s not just a sheer texture. The dress also shimmers in different lighting cos of materials. I rarely ever notice materials, but it’s pretty breathtaking when it’s done right.
I changed my skin again! I’m wearing the new Judith skin from Glam Affair. I’m glad to have a few new skins to add to my skins rotation.
