LeLutka Mesh Heads – Karin – Lotte – Stella

LeLutka Mesh Head - Stella (click here for a raw shot)

On Thursday, April 30th LeLutka will release three new mesh heads: Karin, Lotte and Stella. On April 1st they had released Aria, Ever and Leda. This second batch of heads look drastically different from the first batch, but come with similar options.

The HUD is the same with similar makeup and skin tone options. These heads will come with ten Glam Affair skin tones like the others. They are made to fit the Maitreya Lara Mesh body and also fit the SLink Physique, however they do not fit the Second Life default avatar. You can slightly change the shape of the heads by using the Second Life appearance shape sliders for Head Stretch & Head Length.

Other skin designers have started to make appliers for the LeLutka heads as well. You can see a list of all the designers that will be making appliers on the LeLutka blog. These designers were handpicked by the LeLutka team and more designers will be added to the list very soon. Here are links to the ones I noticed have already released or are about to:
> Glam Affair
> Adam n Eve – (My picture with Adam n Eve applier)
> Deetalez
> Izzie’s
> Lara Hurley
> New Faces
> YS&YS (My picture with YS&YS)

One of the most versatile things about the heads is that skin appliers made for the LeLutka mesh heads can be used with any of them, it is all interchangeable. This way you can create many different looks. Fellow blogger Grazia Horwitz has shown a great example of that by using the same head with five different skin appliers, each looking different and unique in its own way.

LeLutka Mesh Heads - Karin - Lotte - Stella (these are all raw shots)

While you are waiting for Thursday to come around, have a look at the LeLutka Mesh Head Showcase Flickr Group to see more images of these heads. The other LeLutka bloggers are doing an amazing job photographing them and showing how versatile they can be. If you have any questions about the heads, the best person to contact is the LeLutka CSR, Mavi Beck.

Out of the 6 heads LeLutka has so far, my favorites are Ever, Karin and Stella. I am wearing Stella in the first image. She has a fierce look to her face and I feel her chin is just perfection. Although I still don’t feel like myself when I’m wearing the heads, I have seen myself reaching to wear them more often than I thought I initially would. They just have a great quality to them and are surprisingly not that difficult to use once you get the hang of the HUD. One thing I always worry about when I wear them though is getting my eyes right. For some reason, eyes are prone to look cross eyed more often with mesh heads, not sure why that is. And when they don’t look cross-eyed, they tend to have a blank look to them. So yes, getting the eyes right is something I still struggle with, but I do enjoy playing around with it.

Have you tried any mesh heads yet?
