LeLutka Mesh Heads

Ever (click here for a raw shot)

On Wednesday, April 1st LeLutka will release 3 mesh heads, Aria, Ever and Leda. I am sharing raw, unprocessed photos of all three below.

When the heads are released, there will also be an update of Maitreya’s Lara body so that they will match flawlessly as this has been a work done in cooperation between both brands. One very important thing to note before purchasing the heads, they are primarily made for the Maitreya Lara body. They also work with Slink Physique Body however they will NOT work with the SL default avatar. The heads are rigged mesh, so you won’t be able to move them for a different fit. Please make sure you DEMO and double check that they work with whichever mesh body you usually wear before purchasing them.

When you purchase the heads, this is what is included in your package:
* LeLutka Head (Name of head) and version
* LeLutka HUD (Name of head) and version
* 4 Alpha layers (Head no eyes, Head with eyes, Head&Body no eyes, Head&Body with eyes)
* LeLutka Basic Hairbase-Applier (includes 8 colours in Fine and Thick versions)
* LeLutka Rogue Bun & Bun HUD (Hair attachment for a sleek updo, with 8 matching colours)
* LeLutka Basic Lips-Applier (two lipstick colours)
* LeLutka Eyeshadow-Applier (two liner options, one shadow)
* LeLutka Facelight

The features of these heads include:
* Open/Close Mouth
* Open/Close Eyes
* Hide/Show Ears
* Blinking
* Neck Sizes (0,5,7,11,24) Sizes will correspond with Maitreya Lara Body, Size 5 Recommended Slink Physique Body
* Base Skin layer (Brown Brows)
* Two Make-up layers (eyeshadow, lipstick)
* Hairbase layer (tintable)
* 2 styles of Lashes (tintable)
* Shimmer & Gloss – advanced lighting model must be active for this option to be seen
* Shape changeable via SL appearance shape sliders for Head Stretch & Head Length. Head size can also be accessed via appearance.

Since you can change the shape of the head a bit using appearance sliders, it gives you the opportunity to make your head look slightly different than others. The heads also come with 10 Glam Affair skintones and standard brown brows. The skintones are activated via the LeLutka Head Hud and correspond to the same skintones in the Maitreya Lara Body HUD.

Here is a picture of the LeLutka Head HUD that comes with these heads:

The features of this HUD include:
* Minimise/Maximise Hud buttons

LeLutka Mesh Heads (these are all unprocessed, raw shots)

All three brands, LeLutka, Maitreya and Glam Affair have done a phenomenal job at providing an opportunity to have a complete high quality mesh avatar from top to bottom. Out of all the mesh heads I have tried, these are definitely some of my favorite ones. However, I’ve never been a huge fan of mesh heads mainly because I never felt like myself in them. So although I do love their looks, I can’t see myself wearing them all the time. I may however wear them for images from time to time though, the quality is just hard to beat.

So on April 1st, make sure to head down to the LeLutka sim and try on a DEMO and don’t forget to keep an eye on the LeLutka blog for the release announcement.
