Genesis Lab Ethan Bento Mesh Head

Genesis Lab Ethan Bento Mesh Head

Genesis Lab has released their fifth Bento head, his name is Ethan and he is currently available at the Arcade Gacha Events. This is their first male bento head. In this latest release, there are two bento heads available in the gacha, Flor and Ethan. I already blogged Flor a couple of weeks ago.

Here is some information about Ethan:

  • Price:¬†Ethan is a rare in a gacha so to purchase him you will need to play the gacha continuously until you win him. Each gacha pull is L$100 and there is a free DEMO. It is currently available at the Arcade Gacha Events¬†until June 30th and after that it will be available at the Genesis Lab mainstore. The head comes as a white skinless version, as shown in this pic on flickr.
  • Skin Appliers:¬†Since the head comes skin-less you need to¬†purchase some skin appliers for it. The Genesis Lab Ethan skin appliers are also in the same gacha but are not rares.
  • Body Appliers:¬†The body appliers that will match the Ethan skin are actually from Bold & Beauty. So if you wear the Ethan skin and want to match your mesh body to your head, you need to head down to the Bold & Beauty mainstore and pick up the male body appliers for it. The appliers cost L$350 and are available for Signature, SLink, TMP and Omega bodies. The DEMO is free and I suggest you try it first before you buy.
  • Omega Compatibility:¬†According to the Omega Solutions Blog, Genesis Lab heads that are gacha are not Omega compatible.
  • Body Parts:¬†It comes with rigged ears and eyes which you need to wear or wear your own in their place. It also comes with rigged teeth and lacrimal caruncle attachments.
  • Main HUD:¬†The mesh head comes with three HUDs. The first is the¬†main settings HUD that has three tabs on it:
    1. Genetic Tab: In this tab you can change the color of your eyes, eyelashes, ear color, teeth and tongue, beauty marks and freckles and hairbase.
    2. Makeup Tab: in this tab you have a wide variety of makeup to choose from: eyeshadows, facial tattoos, blood, wounds and other miscellaneous fun face tattoos.
    3. Settings Tab: In this tab you have neck fit, teeth and tongue accessories, and skin shine.
  • Basic Animation HUD:¬†The second¬†HUD comes with 12 basic animations, 9 static eye & lip poses, eyes rotation and blinking and talking options.
  • Typer HUD:¬†The third¬†HUD is a typer HUD that you just attach so when you type, your lips will move.
  • Customer Service Questions: If you have any questions about this head, it would be best if you looked at the designer‚Äôs profile, their¬†name is GenesisLab, to see how they¬†prefer to be contacted for customer service issues as I will probably not be able to assist you with that.

Genesis Lab is also holding a summer photo contest with huge linden prizes. Check out their flickr for all the details.

  • Hi Strawberry. I have the Ethan head and the skin in Ethan_04. I went to Bold & Beauty to get the applier for the SLink body, purchased it, and none of the colors in that HUD match the Ethan head. Is there a body applier hidden somewhere for Ethan that you know of?

  • Hi Again Strawberry. It looks like the problem with matching might be on my end. Using CalWL, someone saw that body and head skin matching, but I was using CalWL too and they did not match for me — even on relogging. I am in FireStorm, would you know what other problem I might be experiencing?

    Thank you so much for your wonderful insights!!!

  • Hey Wren, the bold & beauty appliers should match perfectly, they do for me, in most clear windlights. Do you have your settings up? Not sure why that may be happening.

    Hello Strawberry. I want to thank you firstly for your great videos. They are extremely well done and informative. I am sure you have helped many many people with your efforts. I have the Ethan head also with the signature body and went to Bold & Beauty for the applier. I have the complete set from the gacha, however I noticed in your inventory you have HUD Genesis_Lab_Skin_Ethan. I do not seem to have this and I do not see that listed in the Gacha. I have all the skin sets, so I am not sure if I may be overlooking something? Again, thank you for all of your time and hard work!
