Vista Bento Hands & Tableau Vivant

Vista Bento Hands Updates for both Males and Females

Today I’m covering two different topics, first will be the Vista Bento Hands update for both females and males and second is Tableau Vivant skins, hair and hairbases.

Vista Bento Hands

Vista Animations released a beta version of their female bento hands back in October and after several months of testing, they released their final version in January. At the same time they had a bit of a preview of their male bento hands out and now their male bento hands are in beta. I have done a little video showing details about both the male and female hands but first here are some details about both:

Information about the female bento hands:

  • Price: These costs L$999, available in both the vista marketplace store as well as their mainstore.
  • Skins: The final version comes with preloaded Skinnery, Glam Affair and Akeruka skins. There have also been many updates to the hands since the beta like improved mesh, 3 tabs in the HUD, masking on tattoo and gloves, many more nail options and random hand animations to go along with any AO that you choose to use.
  • Omega compatibility: These hands are omega compatibly, you just need to purchase the Vista Omega activation HUD from the marketplace and then activate it before you start applying omega layers onto your hands.
  • Updates in final version: Improved mesh, tattoo and gloves masking, updated nails tab, new alpha sections, and finger animations to work with any standard non-bento AO.

Information about the male bento hands:

  • Three versions: The male hands come in 3 different versions to coincide with the mesh body you choose to wear: SLink, Signature or TMP.
  • Price: These costs L$999 each and are available in both the vista marketplace store as well as their mainstore.
  • Omega compatibility: These hands are omega compatibly, you just need to purchase the Vista Omega activation HUD from the marketplace and then activate it before you start applying omega layers onto your hands.
  • Skins: The SLink version, as listed on the marketplace, comes with two pre-loaded skins: Akeruka and Clef de Peau. The TMP & Signature versions come with three pre-loaded skins: Akeruka, Clef de Peau and Tableau Vivant. I am assuming the SLink ones will be updated with the Tableau Vivant skins as well in the final versions.
  • Beta version: These hands are still in beta but already come with tattoo and gloves masking, detailed alpha cuts, updated nails tab, 12 static hand poses along with random hand animator and a separate fingers animator HUD that can also be worn to work with any standard non-bento AO.

Now watch my video which has more details about these hands: https://youtu.be/EXJkBcrOlpc

In the video I shared full details about the updated HUDs for both the male and female hands. I showed how to re-attach your old non-bento rings so you can wear them with your bento hands without any issues and I also showed how to activate the omega applier for the vista hands and then applied omega tattoos and nail polish to show you how it works. Full credits to items I used and applied in the video will be listed below the credits at the end of this post.

Tableau Vivant

Now I wanted to talk a bit about Tableau Vivant because they are putting out some amazing content.

Tableau Vivant Skins on Catwa Daniel Bento Head

Tableau Vivant released 3 wonderful skin appliers for Catwa male bento heads back in January and I have switched over to using the Fabian skin in tone 7 on my male avatar now. All three of these skins are available at the Tableau Vivant mainstore along with SLink and Signature body appliers, which are sold separately. Also as I mentioned above, the Signature vista hands come with the Tableau Vivant skins in the HUD.

ecstacy

Tableau has also been releasing same amazing hair and hairbases for women. The hair I’m using on my male avatar right now is also from Tableau Vivant, currently available at The Mens Dept.

The windswept hair you see in the images on my female avatar and the poses that I used with those hairs are all from Tableau Vivant, currently at the Arcade. The hairbase and braided buns that I am wearing on my female avatar in the video are currently at we love roleplay.

Check out Tableau Vivant’s flickr stream to see all of the current hairbases, hair and skins being released!

LeLutka Swish Hair

Back in November LeLutka released their first “swish” hair. Their swish line of hair consists of animated hair that moves like it is blowing in the wind. It has a very subtle and natural way of moving. Since their first release in November 2015, they have released more swish hair in December 2015, January 2016, May […] Continue reading →

Left in the Dark

(click here for a raw shot) (raw shot with necklace) I do want to apologize for the darkness of the images today. I know as a blogger I shouldn’t be doing such dark images but instead they should be more bright and clear so they show the items well, but I don’t do it often! […] Continue reading →

Siren’s Call

I just finished going through all of Hair Fair and some of my most favorite hair there is from Exile, for both men and women. The hair in the first image is called Siren’s Call and it’s just incredibly sexy. Hair Fair is now open. There are four sims altogether: Blonde Sim, Brunette Sim, Redhead Sim […] Continue reading →

Just Because

I recently found a new-to-me store on marketplace, Just Because. The mesh is  great quality but what I love is that they have fitmesh for the Maitreya body (and other mesh bodies) that fits perfectly. The prices are great as well. Both the top and bottom I’m wearing were only L$75 each. The hip chain […] Continue reading →

LoQ’ue

I was recently contacted by Gia Pawpad of LoQ’ue for my photography services. She wanted an ad with some of her hair in it and I liked the hair so much, I thought I would share the image with you guys here as well. I love the wispy styles that she does, it gives the […] Continue reading →

Avatar Social Network

I’m sure you all know how much of a social media addict enthusiast I am. I decided to check out another social network recently. I actually joined it a while back, some time last year, but didn’t really start using it more often until recently. Avatar Social Network is like a facebook but for Second […] Continue reading →

Pastels

I’m trying to get used to my new computer and version of Photoshop. It’s fun but I admit I am struggling a bit since I’m kind of like an old lady that hates change, lol. I’ll slowly get used to it though. Please bear with me as I try new techniques in Photoshop and mess […] Continue reading →

Uber Vacation

Uber is a new monthly event that is owned by Mr. Truth Hawks and managed by Kaelyn Alecto. Every month there will be a new theme and for July the theme is vacation. There are 35 talented designers participating this round. It’s a small event but the items are excellent quality and perfect for this […] Continue reading →

Immortal

A lot of cute new skins being released recently. Rose will be released from Glam Affair tomorrow and it will come in seven different tones with 12 makeups as well as a clean face and not to mention a ton of eyebrow options. You can see some of the pictures of the different tones on […] Continue reading →

Florentien

Brendon Papp of Imabee is back after a long hiatus and he has started releasing skins once again. His skins always had a soft mature look to them, which I adored. Although I don’t really feel like myself in his latest skin, I did want to share it because I thought it was well done. […] Continue reading →

Immaculate

Immaculate is the exact word I would use to describe some of the hair that is available at Hair Fair this year. I’ve already spent a small fortune there and plan to head back in a week or so and spend a bit more. Hair Fair opens tonight (Saturday the 12th) at midnight, hope you […] Continue reading →

Freedom

All that’s left is solitude and the desires in my heart. I won’t be around for most of June because I’m going away to places I’ve never been before. I’ve been a mix bag of emotions so far this year (or perhaps always?) and I wanted a change. So I’m travelling across the ocean to […] Continue reading →

Disdain

I believe it was a week ago when Ms. Magenta DeVinna asked Mr. Truth Hawks on plurk to create a style with curlers in it. I was anxiously waiting for it, and he has finally released it! When I saw this do, the first thought I had in my head was a woman with a […] Continue reading →
