THe surprising thing is how different all these heads are! Particularly the mouths; no amount of fussing around is going to get a Ana mouth to look anything like a Jade mouth, or a Jade to look anything like a Gaia. They are all gorgeous, but I've just about got Gaia looking the way I want, so I'm stocking with it.

She's cute, probably very good for a younger avatar.

LAQ is back with Nyx, a very large-lipped head. It fits the same demographic that likes Catwa Linda.

LAQ has released 42 appliers, converting a lot of her older skins from the Essential and Glow lines. 8 of them are Omega compatible, all of them are compatible with her static and bento heads. They are on sale for 100L, which is a great buy. Anyone who bought skin after June 2016 can upgrade for free by getting a redelivery.

Each purchase contains a fatpack of appliers in all skin tones + one skin tone of system skin with several system makeups.

WOW!!

There's gonna be a loooot of demo'ing to be done.



ETA: No I take that back. A bulk of the appliers released aren't Omega compatible like they usually are and appear to only work on LAQ heads

ETA2: I doubly take that back. Now it appears the small handful of Omega appliers that are available are unable to be demo'd!

All the Omega appliers i wanted were demoable, just not with the usual mousover-thingie. You actually have to rightclick the big picture more or less blindly

Question - before I try - do all of these have super strong makeup/blush? I noticed that the blush layer is only blendable on the appliers the heads come with.

I think they all have fairly rosy cheeks. What you might want to do is make a skin-toned texture that has about 15-25% opacity and wear it on the tattoo layer. Get a dev kit and just put that color on the cheek area. If you wear a Lelutka head, you can just make it a fully opaque color and blend it down.

Yes, I had problems last night when I went to look, I couldn't find any that actually were Omega appliers in the boxes. Maybe that's fixed today, I will go back tonight when I get home and check.

Okay, after quite a bit of testing, the LAQ skins tend to work best with Altamura, Eve, Catwa and Akeruka, of the brands that I own. Futzing with shapes is going to be necessary but the least distortion appears around the eyes on these brands. With Lelutka Cate it looked like I was crying and my mascara was running.

ETA: demo demo demo! Not all skins work well with all heads.

I'll see how some of them look on my GA.EG head and report back.

Also, I got the Nyx head demo to try with the appliers, and I must say it's not botox lipped at all depending on the applier used. It's just the default skin worn on the head in the promo pics that makes it look that way.

I can see that being a big hit for those who want a more mature look for their avatar instead of the usual ducklipped big titted chicky babe ones !

The skin is what really makes the difference for aging. I'm sure it will look lovely with a younger skin applier too.

The head also contains an awesome wrinkle layer. I'm wearing it with a young skin and the tiniest amount of wrinkle. Just love it - but the shape is also for a more mature woman. To wear it with a younger skin you have to plump here and there.

It has jowls! I wish the jowls slider worked on bento heads, this might be a good compromise.

I love the new Scarlet by LAQ and honestly the fact she is making heads that are unique and different then most are, has become a huge selling point!

Of note (which may or may not have already been mentioned in this thread) - this specific head adds wrinkles to all of LAQ skins (all 'phase 2' skins come available to be applied to the head, body skins would need to be bought). Which is both a positive and negative - positive in that you have more options; negative in that . . . I'm not actually sure how 'non-wrinkled skin' get added. There's a group gift of a pre-phase 2 skin that I applied to the head and it applied without wrinkles, so I assume phase 1 skins can be applied without wrinkles. And - there's a wrinkle button, so any LAQ skin can have wrinkles added (two things to note: it's some kind of tattoo type application that seems to be developed for lighter skins so darker skins get 'lightened' when wrinkles are added (this is if you click on the wrinkle button, I didn't check to see if darker skins pre-wrinkled are impacted by this issue; two: you can click on the wrinkle button for one of the skins provided to the head but you end up starting to look less like an aged human, and more like the face vampires got on Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

One major stumbling block I came across immediately - as noted the all phase 2 skins for LAQ are provided with the head, but only for the head. Body skins need to be bought. I restress this part because I looked all over LAQ and saw nothing that looked like wrinkle body skin; or tat wrinkles that could be added. So you'd end up with wrinkle head, unwrinkle body. There must be some way around that but I did not see that way.

Of note 3 (no wrinkle body skin is 2): all the heads I looked at for LAQ, all four of them I looked at, have a 'wrinkle' button on the HUD. So if you don't like Vivien, you could try one of the other heads and play with the wrinkle button. Plus they also sell another 'aged' female human skin to be applied to heads, but again only the head applier part is available for sale.


ETA: I asked in the LAQ group - no one had any news about wrinkled body skin. They are Omega compliant, though, so can add fully formed skin. Just not LAQ. Apparently.

Neve head, 500L.

As I understand the ad, this is a fully working head, not a stripped down cheap one. It even have that wrinkle layer option.

Not only is it not stripped down but Omega is built in, no installer necessary. It even has its own neck blend if you're wearing one of the built-in skins.
It's a fun head, and it seems like almost all the hunt/gift skins I've accumulated that don't suit the other heads work nicely on this one.
