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.

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.

So i picked up the new Nivaro Sagat applier for Enzo Aesthetic at skin fair. While it's not completely working for me as Noco, i do like this version in blonde. I'll be using it for pictures as an alternative to my normal dark look. This is my basic Enzo (non bento) head. I'm still looking to get an alternative bento head for Noco, but haven't worked out which will work for him yet.

OK, I just love that look!!!
But tell me, one of my alts has Smith, not Enzo. And I find the Smith skin hopeless to tint because they have that ash color tone. Is it possible to buy just Enzo skins or a "Natural" tone for Aesthetic?

Or am I totally missing that Nivaro could maybe, possibly, in my wildest dream, have body skin appliers? THAT would be great!

No body appliers yet. The only one available for aesthetic is from Samurai, and i don't like that much.

Skin tinting is much better on the light skin tone. Enzo comes with both the light and medium. I don't use the medium one. The one in this picture is light.

ETA: Medium and Light come with the bodies. Pale comes with the Johnny add on, Fair comes with the Raoh add on and Vampire comes with the Damond add on. All are pretty ashy but they do work well in ultra settings. You just don't get the creamy, clean and cartoony look of traditional skins. SamuraiHQ applier may be what you're after: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p...Hud-11/8826516

Thank you, I know about that Samurai skin. Maybe it is the only Aesthetic body skin that's made for humans. I see some furry skins.
No, that Pale, Fair and Vampire skins look too crazy for me. I think the default skins with Enzo is the best for tinting. Tinting Smith to get rid of the ashy skin is so difficult. I wish it was possible to buy more skins. Well, buying more from Niramyth is out of the question then. I know I read some place that Niramyth plan to release a less muscled body. But if they insist in using their own UV map, I fear that it will be only one skin option. Not many will bother to work with that alien UV map... given the total absence of body skins. (Ok, one human and some furry skins)

I am currently using a Lara body and the Catwa Tumble non-bento head. Since the Tumble does slightly resemble pre-mesh-head me, (especially when I wore the Belleza Betty) I'm holding off on a Bento head, but will probably have one by July at the latest. I'm showing a various shots to show what looks I've done with the head. I do tend to the classic

Full body shot Lumae Ruby T4 appliers with a lippie from the Catwa extras thing, IKON Charm Eyes in Moor, and Truth Zoya hair. Lingerie fromDead Dollz.

Head shot, Lumae Ruby T4 appliers with a lippie from the Catwa extras thing, IKON Charm Eyes in Moor, and Truth Zoya hair. Yeah I kind of resemble Rose from Titanic a bit.

head shot with Lumae Eirtae T4 appliers with a gloss and eyeshadow from Pink Fuel Glossy pout and Smokey boudoir appliers, IKON Charm Eyes in Moor, and Exile Bewitched hair. This look seems a bit Megan Fox crossed with Gogo from Juicybomb. (It's the glossy parted lips that do that)

headshot with Truth Gaea hair, Lumae Ruby skin in T4, IKON Charm Eyes in Moor, lippie from the catwa lippie extras HUD. This is about as low-femme as I get. Reminds me of Mariska Hargitay of SVU during her short hair (ROWR) period.

Hi All,

Thought ill get in on the sharing Thats me Deli. Lelutka Chloe and Maitrya with my selfmade shape. It took me a lot of time, but i like how it turned out. Im still making chages here and there sometimes, but mostly just tiny tweeks, moving a slider with 1 or 2 here and there. At first I got a Belleza body, but due to the lack of clothes and the HUD not being the most user friendly (as a first time user) I got a Maitreya. Now i prefer the Belleza shape (its more atheltic and curvy), but Im back with the Maitreya due to 2 things. Bento hands and seemless neckline. So thats my story

So I was working on a new skin and playing with my new Akeruka Lara Bento head, gradually adjusting the shape to fit the skin. I also learned a new trick of combining a few hairstyles to create a brand-new look.

I liked what I was seeing, so I started to take a few snaps when I started to get the feeling that the av looked a lot like someone I knew… Who was it? Then it dawned on me…it’s me! Or at least the idealised image of me that I have in my head. Me on an amazingly brilliant hair & makeup day (and with those encroaching streaks of grey coloured in!)

Have you had one of those #firstlifemeetssecondlife moments?
