Speaking of mesh heads in general, some look totally different om me than in the ads and blogs. Even with the same skins/appliers.

Male mesh Catwa heads if the worst for me. I have seen Beebos alt with male Catwa head, Strawberry Singh, others too, I demo and just stare in disbelief on my screen. First, second, third Catwa male head, can't find "the one".

And I talk pre-Bento, when we couldn't edit the heads.

Female Catwa heads, Lelutka, Niramyth, LOGO, you name it, I think I look great in my various avatars. But male Catwa? I think it's a curse.

I agree my Logo Morgana Pink Fuel skin looks way better on my Catya Catwa head than the Annie or Jessica one. I have a skinnery skin that I have tried on my AK Auroura head and gee I just look like full on bitch with that one. I save that one for days I am in a bad mood .

I have tried many beautiful skins and my shape just makes it look crappy. For me it is about finding the right skin for my shape.

A new Lelutka head on the way. Moka's blog is the only news of it so far though.

It's very pretty... lips seem pretty full, though. Not going to please the small-lipped crowd.



And a comparison, Chloe on the left, Simone on the right:

I tried a couple of premades on my Lelutka, and I got much better results that way than trying to "roll my own" without hours of twiddling and fiddling.

The problem with the premades that I tried was that they were no-trans, so I couldn't share the shape between alts. Still, if someone like me who is awful at sculpting our own shapes wants a shortcut, I think the premades are a very good solution.

Apparently the Chloe head is getting released Today (well, tomorrow for me). I'll definitely demo it but I'm not buying unless there's some way to buy it for L$2.5k again.

I think it's pretty, but not meaningfully distinct from Simone. I felt the same way about Kimberly from Catwa. When we are plopping down 5k at a time for heads, I would prefer to see more variety, especially since Bento gives us the means to make radical changes to the overall look.

I grabbed it. There was a small crowd in the store (most of them blocking the Bento display), so I got the demo and ran off as fast as I could

If I like it I might buy the full, but 5k is a chunk of change for a hobby.

I'm hopeless. The demo went on so effortlessly that I went ahead and grabbed the full model. It helped that I already had my Simone head shape in place, so I only had to do minor tweaking on the eyes and lips to get Chloe to look the way I wanted.

More tweaking to follow. Chin's too pointed.

I think it's exellent that LeLutka get out more heads, since it is so many "Catwa only" and not even an omega solution plus Catwa. LeLutka need to have more than one Bento head.

The "Powder pack" Catwa only. https://powderpacksl.com/faq/
While I wouldn't buy unknown content and overpriced packs like this, they are popular, aren't they?

The full lips is to cchallenge the full-lipped Catwa heads that is really popular? Restylane is popular in RL too...

I agree that it isn't much variety. We can use the sliders a bit, but we can't do that much. I still struggle with the tiny noses. There should be noses with other shapes too.

Wish LeLutka had male heads. But they would probably be pretty boys and nothing with strong features. Still, the LeLutka hud is a pleasure to use and it would be nice to try a male Lelutka head.

I wouldn't call Powder Pack overpriced at all. In this month's box we got 3 skins, one specifically designed for deep toned women of color in 4 different tones and two others with both light and darker tones. Not to mention makeups that would go for between $L 200-400 a piece. If you're willing to take a gamble, the 'surprise' box concept is usually a really nice deal.

I didn't buy the first box because of the L'etre scandal, but when they swapped out Deetalez for him I had to grab February.

Back on topic, Lelutka faces are beautiful but rarely ever look nice. They're a little intimidating, on the whole. I think it's the narrow eyes. This new one might be nice if you could get the lips down a bit.

I'm not a fan of the squinty eyes on Lelutka either, so that's why I have the eye animation permanently set to 'wide'. You can also get the eyes a little more open with subtle use of the eye bag slider too (say, no more than 15%).

It's not a bad price if I will use all, but from what I've seen shown in blogs, it would not be so for me.
L'etre scandal? Please tell me more. I have missed it all. Are L'etre hit by a DMCA on their male skins? All were gone, appliers and all, last time I was in the store.

The creator withdrew them voluntarily after several people posted comparison points to other skin makers' body and face skins. They're also no longer the default skin on Catwa heads.

He's saying that he bought base templates that were copybotted and he didn't know, but people apparently don't believe him.

I tried the Chloe demo yesterday, put it on with one of my Simone test shapes, and immediately said "holy @#$%! This is IT."

I'm pretty sure my eyes don't look that squinty either. I did have that problem with Simone.

I paid for the Powder Pack Lelutka Version.

I said it wouldn't be worth it, because I wouldn't use enough of the contents.

I changed my mind for Lelutka, it is so much made for Catwa already, I thought I should support those who makes Lelutka content. And this is the first PP for Lelutka.

Exited to see what's in it. My greedy voice whisper that maybe the first pack is specially good, to gather interest.

I'm not sure I'd be over fussed on the Powder Pack. It looks like it has too much makeup in it which I rarely use.

The same goes for any of the subscription boxes really. I don't see much value in the Luxe Box either since there's a good chance most of the items in the box won't suit my av.

I'm in need of some help. I recently purchased the Lelutka Chloe bento head. Is it possible to apply the pearl tone Glam Affair skin color preset that comes with the head to my Belleza body? I tried purchasing the lightest tone at Glam Affair of Belleza appliers and of course it doesn't match. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Check to make sure that there isn't a tint on the body.

Thanks for the reply Cristalle. I did purchase a skin applier from Glam Affair that was called Polar because I didn't see any skin applier named Pearl for Belleza Mesh Body. I have fiddled with the tint option on the body itself to see if that was the issue, but it is not.

Am I missing something? Do I need an Omega Relay or something? I didn't even see any skin appliers for bodies in the Lelutka shop. The Glam Affair skin appliers are in a back room of their shop, but they do not have a shade matching Pearl for Belleza.

I was not familiar with her offerings for Belleza. I took a look and yes, I see that there is an issue with her offerings for Belleza, in that the line of tones is not complete. There are only 8 tones available whereas there are like 2-3 more tones that are missing. You can see that when you compare it to what is offered for Slink Physique. Even The Mesh Project and Wowmeh have more tones available.

I would not expect them to be in the Undivided shop in the Lelutka mainstore because Glam Affair is the built-in skin for the Maitreya body, in the same way that Lelutka is the head built for the Maitreya body.

I was looking for a general Omega applier but the computer I'm on right now is terrible and everything is really laggy, I don't think there is one. I'm not sure if the Wowmeh would work and I wouldn't try it.

At this point your best bet is to put the question to Aida Ewing and see if she is just in the process of updating the skins for Belleza and in the meanwhile tint the body to match the head, or vice versa.
