Signature first released their Gianni mesh head in October of 2016, now in April of 2017 they have updated this head to bento. This is of course a free update if you previously owned the Gianni mesh head. Here is some information about this head and update:
- Price: The cost of this bento head is L$3500 and the DEMO is free. The bento update is free so if you’ve had this head from before, just hit the redelivery terminal in the mainstore for the update.
- Skin: It comes with 12 skin tones from Signature and 3 face textures to change the look of the skin: Young, Mature and Gamey.
- Layers: It comes with 5 layers that you can apply textures to: face, tattoo, eyebrows, beard and hair.
- Omega: Signature products are omega-ready so they come with omega pre-installed and don’t require a relay HUD.
- Bento: This head has now been updated and rigged to the bento bones so you are able to adjust it using the Second Life appearance sliders.
- Animations: It comes with 16 eyes and 16 mouth facial expressions. You can also turn blinking on and off and lips are animated when typing.
- Textures: It comes with 4 hairbase, 4 beard, 4 brows and 4 eyelash texture options. There are also some extra eyebrows, beards and hairbases available for sale in the mainstore (which I am wearing in this post today).
- Textures Kit: If you want to make skin appliers for this head, there is a free textures kit available right beside the vendor. The uvmap is the same as the default avatar.
- Customer Service Questions: If you have any questions about this head, it would be best if you looked at the designers’ profiles, their names are: Mona Delpiaz and Raph Dirval, to see how they prefer to be contacted for customer service issues as I will probably not be able to assist you with that. You can also join the Signature Body group inworld, the group members are very helpful with questions.

Recently Signature mesh body was updated as well, so the hands are also rigged to bento bones, I blogged about that at this link. Now both the body and head are bento enabled.
Another great thing about Signature is every month they hold a Signature event where all of the items are made specifically for the Signature head or body. I have blogged about the Signature event before. I believe the next one starts on May 1st but I am not sure. Join the Signature Group inworld to keep up to date with all the events and releases for Signature.
I have made a shape for this bento head and will be releasing it shortly. Once I release it, I will link to it from here.
UPDATE: I have released my shape for this bento head now and it is available in my marketplace store. (UPDATE – MY SHAPES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE)
