To add to what Cristalle said, the big problem with this is that more and more people are moving to Bento heads and hands, etc. I still get IMs from those who say "I can't see your head" and I have to jump into the long-winded explanation that I'm wearing a Bento head ("What's Bento?") and that not all viewers support Bento yet. I suggest to them that as the grid becomes dominated by Bento (and it will), being on a non-Bento viewer is going to become more and more problematic. The choice is becoming not whether to switch but how long can you go without seeing everything?

I thought I read where Singularity was working on a Bento-compatible viewer, but I don't know anything about it. It pains me to say this, but given the current landscape with SL viewers, it's become more critical than ever to use one that updates frequently (official or Firestorm) or just abandon the idea of being able to see everybody as they're designed most of the time.

Anouk, I feel your pain.

For whatever reason, the prevailing designer aesthetic is dominated by collagen-injected bee-stung lips for both skins and mesh heads. Lips are one of the major reasons I've waited so long before getting a mesh head, and it's Bento that finally solved the problem for me.

Even with Bento-enabled mesh heads, there's a limit to what you can do to minimize the puffiness that the creators love and there's a slight distortion if you view the mesh head from the side. The lips have been flattened rather than thinned. Without Bento... you're shit out of luck.

I took a minute to actually look for a Singularity Bento viewer, and while it's in Alpha it reportedly runs very well.

Singularity Alpha build 6915

Good thinking! I'm down with a streaming cold at the moment, but I'll start a thread in a day or so when I can get some more pics taken.

Inspired by all your amazing pics, I have decided to a) pick up a bento head, b) spend an ungodly amount of time tweaking it to here and there and c) putting it out here as well.
It's the Catwa Kimberly and possibly an eternal work in progress, because fiddling with all the sliders has become dangerously addictive...

The GA.EG Barbara head for anyone that's interested. The more I wear it the more it suits me better than my Lelutka head.

Hehe, cool story with the skin, the head creator must have inspected me (with one of those scripted gizmos I guess) as I was demo'ing the head with the applier at the GA.EG store and they TP'ed to the skin shop to investigate the applier, right as I was TP'ing in to the skin shop to buy the applier after buying the head. She complimented me on how good it looked lol.

It is really lovely. Problem for me is that I am so into LeLutka and Catwa HUDS. I am not sure if I can take more systems.

Before, it was TMP and Catwa, I can work with two systems spread over my avatars.

RL sometimes makes me stay off SL for weeks, some avatars lie in sleep for months. If they use the same system, it is just to log in and ready to go.

Now I have three male looks that I really like.

Posting them for comparing skins. All are Catwa Daniel.

I find it hard to get a unique profile. I had hoped for a male Catwa head with another nose/mouth whatever. Can't really do much with the nose. It is straight no matter what.

Body shots.

I thought posing in swimming trunks or boxer shorts, but it's not possible to find any for NX Nardcotic yet.
And just one in jeans would not look right.
