Akeruka Julia Mesh Head

Akeruka Julia Mesh Head

Akeruka has released their first female mesh head named Julia. It is currently available at Skin Fair and here are some details about it:

  • Price: The head is currently only available at Skin Fair for the special price of L$2499. The DEMO is free.
  • Tones & Makeup: The head comes with ten skin tones, hairbases, lipsticks, freckles, beauty marks and more.
  • Appliers: You can wear this head with the default SL body or with a mesh body. It comes with skin layers for default body as well as appliers for Altamura, Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, SLink, and TMP.
  • Developers Kit: If you are a creator in Second Life and you would like to create skins and appliers for any Akeruka Mesh Heads, you can fill out the application for the Developers Kit.
  • Animated: This is a fully animated head, which means you have the option to turn on the many face emotes it comes with as well as blinking and the talk animation. The talk animation is triggered once you start typing in local chat, (you will see the lips moving.)

I am wearing the Maitreya mesh body and Ikon mesh eyes with it. Here is a little video I did showing some of the details:

One thing I do want to make a note of because I had some issues with it. Sometimes due to lag, the HUD of the mesh head doesn’t load properly and when you try and click on the skin tones buttons or the different makeup or lipstick buttons, the items do not fully load. In order to reset the scripts in the HUD, you want to go to the skin tones section of the HUD and then find an empty spot on the grey background area beside the skin tones. You want to click and hold your mouse down for about 5 to 10 seconds and then release. That should reset the scripts on the HUD and then you will see that all of your makeup and skin tones will rez completely after a minute. This little trick helped me quite a bit so I hope it helps you out too! I only had to do it that one time and didn’t have that loading issue again.

Another thing I wanted to make a note of, in the video you will notice I am not wearing earrings. That is because the animations to the head are attached to the facial bones so if you are wearing any accessories on different parts of your facial area, the accessories might get triggered by the animations and move around. Since the earrings are so big, they were shifting around a lot so I removed them for the video. I thought I would mention that in case you find that as an issue. Definitely check out the DEMO with any accessories you normally wear before buying.

The past week I have been trying to revamp my YouTube channel a bit, trying to make it a bit more user friendly. I organized my videos into different playlists so they are easier to find. I also made my YouTube subscriptions public and have been subscribing to all YouTube channels I can find that share SL related videos such as tutorials, vlogs, reviews or any random sl videos people like to share. If you are interested in finding more Second Life related content on YouTube, I suggest you check out my subscriptions section. If you have a channel where you share SL content and don’t see it in my list, please leave a link to it in my comments and I’ll make sure to subscribe. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel as well, I plan to make a lot more videos and do some more live streaming soon. Thank you!

    It’s a lovely head but It’s a bit too close to Lelutka’s Leda head for my comfort.

    I like this mesh head, but my earrings (attached to my ears) swing wildly as my mouth moves. The movement occurs whether I’m changing animations or talking in local chat. Gave me quite a chuckle, actually.

    Well, Berry, I would never have even considered this mesh head if I hadn’t read your blog about it here… she’s so much more beautiful than she looks in the vendor pic at the skin fair (no offense intended, Akeruka!). I had to see all the many skin tones, animations, lips, etc. that you demonstrated in your video here. Thanks for blogging this…I needed another mesh head! No, seriously, she is just lovely, and I’m excited to start wearing her and hoping other skin applier creators will start making appliers for her – she’s worth it! Thanks also for the tip regarding the HUD issue…and you look amazing wearing Julia with the Maitreya mesh body, ya’ sexy thang! ♥♥♥♥

    Jordana, to me Leda has a very different look, much sharper than this one. I don’t feel like I look the same when I wear either head.

    Dojiba, yes I had to take my earrings off to use the animations as well because the animations are attached to the facial bones.

    Skye thanks! I’m happy that my little videos assist in seeing what it looks like inworld. I am really enjoying all of the animations that come with the Akeruka heads, they seem very subtle and realistic.

    I would agree that she tends to look like Leda although not an exact match. Maybe more like Lotte but not as soft in the expression. She has the same attitude as Leda, and pouty mouth. Still, very impressive work! Looking forward to a more neutral expression.

    Hi I was wondering do you know if the head works with Omega skin appliers?

    Hello Mizuki, yes it is Omega compatible. I have it listed under the appliers.

    Tielen, the eyebrows I’m wearing come with the head itself. To change them, you would need to purchase an applier.

    Blaze, those sound like customer service issues, I have no idea how to fix them. I would suggest contacting the customer service of both Maitreya and Akeruka.
