Mesh Heads: Altamura

Altamura, by Rumegusc Altamura, provides mesh bodies and heads.

This post is solely about the heads, for ease of reading.

At the time of this writing, Altamura has a number of heads for human women but only one of them, Aggie, is a Bento compatible head. In my opinion, Aggie is nice if you want softer, rounder features from the start. It deforms pretty well, without going to scary extremes.

Aggie is Omega compatible, using an installer instead of a relay (yay!). The included skins for Aggie are all fair skinned ("white and whiter") so if you want to make an ethnic head with softer features, you will need Omega to do so. The Sarah and Africa heads come with ethnic skins, whereas the others do not. There are heads available on the Altamura marketplace store that do not have pictures in her flickr.

Aggie sells for 3499L. Non-Bento heads sell for 2299L.

In testing this out some more, I have found that for Omega to work, you have to wear the HUD while also wearing the Omega applier hud. You cannot just wear the Omega applier hud with the head on. This is super strange but it seems that the Altamura hud acts as a relay. That's a pain.

Altamura released another Bento head at Skin Fair, Monique. I haven't demo'd it yet but I hope the lips are less weird than Aggie's.

A new male Bento head from Altamura, Alvin, is dropping. It is geared toward ethnic looks. I am not a fan of the skin shading, so thank God it's Omega compatible. It's debuting at Black Fair.

It is pretty cool, but it's just the one skin tone. The Omega installer does nothing, for now, anyway. I picked up the kit for my male alt before I realized that. Their blog says there will be a big surprise for group members who get that body, so maybe they'll add Omega capability.

When I tried it, there was a very obvious seam on the neck that this preview photo hides via collar. The one included skin also left quite a bit to be desired and makes me believe much of the picture was photoshopped. I'm hopeful that the surprise is indeed omega support, but I'm going to guess that it will instead be additional skin tones.

After unpacking this male gift, I must say the HUD was better than Signature Gianni. I really love the shortcuts, that I can click on the colored "dots" and alpha out the part of the body in the same color, and then adjust fine by adding a slice of alpha or taking one away.

The skin looks better in a neutral windlight setting, but it is not awesome. I agree that the ad is very nice.... the skin does not quite live up to the picture.

Really worth picking up. I have Catwa heads and various mesh bodies for my mALTs, but this is awesome for the broke SL guy.

The MOH10 has some really cool other stuff too, it seems. Bento tail, I thnk it can work for my female avatars too. So many gifts, so little time for SL....
