Akeruka has probably released the most amount of bento heads to the grid now, with 5 male mesh heads and over 10 female mesh heads. I have blogged quite a number of them already, which you can find in my Akeruka tag on my blog.
Yesterday Akeruka released Lara, which is the latest edition to their female bento heads. Lara is an update to 2.0 for their mesh heads and slowly over the next couple of weeks you will see their previously released heads being updated to 2.0 as well. You should receive free updates once that happens to any heads you’ve purchased in the past.
With the 2.0 update, there are many changes that have been added which I will show you in detail in my video embedded below but before that, here are some notes about this head:
Omega Compatibility: This head is omega compatible, as are all the other Akeruka mesh heads. You can pick up the omega relay hud for Akeruka on marketplace.
2.0 update includes: The ability to minimize the main HUD, more layers, tinting, blending and specular on almost all layers, eye animation and 3 new lip animations on main HUD, you can also now hide your teeth and parts of your skull to fit hair better, and more.
Basic HUD: It comes with a basic HUD that has 3 static eye poses and 3 static mouth poses.
Expression HUD Addon: There will be an expression HUD addon for this head, that will be released in a few days.
Akeruka YouTube Video: Akeruka has released a couple of videos about the 2.0 update which you can check out on their youtube channel.
I really like this head a lot and I have made a shape for it, which you can see me wearing in this post. The shape will be released shortly, hopefully within this week. I’ll update this post with the links to the shape when I release it.
UPDATE: I have now released my shape for this head and you can find it in my marketplace store at this link. In the vendor image I am wearing a skin from Egozy called Svetka. I forgot to show it in my video but I thought it looked absolutely beautiful with this head so decided to use it in my vendor. Hope you like the shape!

A new HUD has hit the Second Life marketplace that has a completely different concept and idea and it’s actually rather fun.

Catwa Catwa has released a new mesh head yesterday by the name of Gwen and I feel it has quite a bit of attitude. I also feel it looks quite different from her previous releases. One thing to note about Gwen’s release is if you read her flickr, she states that she has released an […] Continue reading →
One phrase that I hear a lot from people when they describe mesh heads in Second Life is “uncanny valley.” Is that how you feel about them as well? Let’s compare the first picture to the second picture in this post, do they both look like they are from Second Life? In the second picture […] Continue reading →

(click here for a raw shot) Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up […] Continue reading →
