Catwa Lona Bento Mesh Head

Catwa Lona Bento Mesh Head

Catwa’s latest bento mesh head is called Lona and she will be released at Skin Fair on March 10th. This is her 4th female head and here are some details about it:

  • Price: I am not sure what the price will be however her previous heads were L$5000 so I assume it will be around that amount. It will be at Skin Fair from March 10th till March 26th and after that it will be available at the Catwa mainstore.
  • Omega Compatibility: This head is omega compatible, as are all the other Catwa mesh heads. You can pick up the omega relay hud for Catwa heads on marketplace.
  • Layers: This head has 3 layers: The first layer is for skin and then it has two layers for makeup on top of that, which are divided into different sections, providing you many options for a more customized look.
  • HUDs: The head comes with two HUDs: the master HUD and the Animations HUD. The master HUD has all of the skin, makeup and hairbase options. The Animations HUD controls blinking, talking, static eyes and lips and 24 expressions.
  • Rigged Eyes: The head comes with rigged eyes that should be worn with it and can be changed and modified using the Catwa Mesh Eyes HUD as well as any appliers made for Catwa mesh eyes.
  • More Information: For more information about Catwa Bento heads, click over to Catwa’s website for a detailed post as well as her youtube channel for an even more detailed video.
  • Customer Service Questions: If you have any questions about this head, it would be best if you looked at the designer’s profile, her name is Catwa Clip, to see how she prefers to be contacted for customer service issues as I will probably not be able to assist you with that.

Here is the list of skins I applied on this head in the video:

  1. Bold & Beauty Taylor
  2. YSYS Ludovica
  3. Insol Anita
  4. Glam Affair Lilo (@ Glam Affair satelite store)
  5. DeeTalez Doutzen
  6. !Imabee Danae
  7. Egozy Teyona
  8. Amara Beauty Jewel
  9. League Ella

The Lona head is very cute and pretty with lips that have a bit over an overbite style like a bunny. The lips are not really my style but I am pretty sure will be well liked by many and really gives her a unique look. I highly suggest picking up a DEMO of this head at Skin Fair on March 10th and trying it out for yourself with your favorite skins.

Here is a comparison picture that Catwa has done of all 4 of her female bento heads so far:

If you are not familiar with Bento, here is some information and links that will explain it in detail:

  1. What is Bento?On December 15th, 2015, Linden Lab announced a new project called Bento. Basically what they are doing is adding additional bones to the Second Life avatar skeleton to support both rigging and animation.
  2. Bento is Live! – Bento went live on December 5, 2016 and is currently available in all Second Life viewers. Please update your viewer to the latest release if you haven’t already done so.

  1. I am so anxious to buy a bento mesh head but the lips are the killer for every single one of the ones I have demo-ed and I’ve demo-ed them all. It was the same for the regular mesh heads.

    Obviously, the beestung lips are popular because they sell like crazy. I was hopeful that bento would allow me to alter the mouth to be acceptable to me but it hasn’t happened so far. Laughs, I even bought all your shapes just to demo the various bento heads.

    The eye area and the noses are so beautiful but the upper lip is just not me and I can’t make it even vaguely near. Maybe one day!

    But I do want to thank you for taking so much time to make these videos which are so helpful to everyone.
