Catwa is back with Koura, a new Bento head that seems to have a nice profile sans duck lips:

Another new head, Tala - another cutesy (probably ducklipped) head.

Since I was good and didn't buy any heads before Bento besides the ones for my Coco dolls, I don't feel TOO badly about collecting a few now. The Powder Packs are nice, often include some omega and system items and I'm having fun. My closet already has a row of heads wearing sunglasses so it's not that much of a leap, really...

So, lots of Catwa news.

First, Catwa is in the middle of doing major updates to the line, revamping the huds and adding motion capture to her heads, and some accessories. The full list of changes is here: Bento Head Updates Log | Catwa Store

Catya is the first head out of the bunch that is getting re-rigged, if you own Catya then get a redelivery. The others will come soon.

Also, she is out with a beautiful new head, Hanako. Hanako is a delicate Asian style that is very welcome to add some diversity.

Tala is cute, I think with the right skin you can have more of that cherub-looking face because of the fullness of the cheeks. Demo them both, though, because Hanako will look more Asian than Tala. You would need an Asian skin to make Tala look Asian.

I think you can find one-off Asian skins at the big skinmakers. You could look at the skinmakers' flickr accounts and see their releases.

The Skinnery recently released Chai:

DeeTalez has a couple of older skins that would probably work. Kanita, Momoka.

I wonder if Tala could replace my Snow Rabbit head. But, what kind of skin should I use with it? I have had another break from SL. I start to forget favorite skin stores, and miss new releases.

Kathy or Koura are more likely replacements for Snow Rabbit than Tala, to be honest, due to Tala's cheeks being so full. Between the two, I'd say Kathy, because of the shape of the eyes.

More Catwa news & a new head! Daniel has been updated, get a redelivery if you own it.

And here comes Sofia, who is pretty gorgeous in this skin from Amara Beauty:

I missed the post about updates. Where can I red what's been done?

I could wish she had more full layers, beards on the male heads use neck, cheeks and lips.

Marianne, the full change log of updates is here: Bento Head Updates Log | Catwa Store

I included that with the post about Hanako.

You should leave her a comment on her Flickr, she is pretty responsive there.

I caved and Bought a Catwa head. This is Kathy wearing The Skinnery's Lily. Sweet looking, albeit on the verge of crying. I keep seeing a Sansa Stark resemblance in there somewhere too.

Can you tell which heads are being used here in these two images? .. I'd love to know

The 2nd picture, Kyong, is particularly lovely.

I'm guessing it's Hanako by Catwa, but this pic looks 100 times better than Catwa's advert a bit further back.

Yes, he is .. very cute indeed.

Put him on a Maitreya body with a V-TECH chest wearing subtle make-up and he'd make a lovely femboy.

I checked out the Chai pic and that is shown on Catya. It's on Tala in the Pumec ad.

I am so tempted to buy that head for my asian male avatar.
But I am also tempted by the Lelutka head.
My #1 skin creator does skins for both heads now, but he does not have any Omega appliers!! So the skin for Catwa heads, we can only use them on Catwa, and the 4(?) or more, he made for Lelutka, can be worn on the Lelutka head only. Argh.

But wait, I am never sure about Omega. Since LeLutka can take Omega skins with the Omega injector, can a Catwa head take LeLutka skins with the Omega realy for Catwa?

It is so confusing.....

Both Lelutka and Catwa will take any skin in an Omega applier.

If a skin is designed for any head other than Catwa and is in an Omega applier, then the Catwa head can use it. So as it currently stands, Catwa can wear skins made for LOGO since all third-party LOGO appliers are Omega appliers, and for LAQ since all the third-party LAQ appliers are Omega appliers. If someone makes a skin designed for Lelutka but puts it in an Omega applier, then the Catwa head will be able to apply it.

I am actually wearing a skin designed for LOGO now on my Lelutka Cate head.

Cristalle is absolutely right, but there is a bit of a 'but' that I want to add. There are small differences in mesh heads and how they fit the skin, particularly around eyes and lips. Skins that are created for one mesh head may sit a little funny on other mesh heads, maybe around the tear duct or with the eyelid crease. Similarly lips can be subtly different too. Usually it's not a problem, except for close up pics, and makeup can help hide a thin lip or slightly off eyelid.

As with everything...DEMO!
