LAQ Scarlet & Rebel Bento Mesh Heads

LAQ Scarlet & Rebel Bento Mesh Heads

Today I will be talking about two Laq bento heads that were released a few weeks ago, Scarlet and Rebel. Both of these come with motion capture animations, just like their previous bento heads Rina, NeveNyxLuluJadeGaia and Ana.

I’ve done videos for both heads where I’ve tried different skin appliers and showed a bit of the HUD, but first here is some information about them:

  • Price: Laq heads cost L$5000 and the DEMOs are free. Both are available at the LAQ mainstore.
  • Main HUD: They come with one main HUD that has three tabs; features, mood and looks:
    1. Features: The features tab has options to hide certain parts of the head, neck size, skin tones, freckles, wrinkles blush, eyebrows, lashes, hairbases, lipstick and eyeshadow. All of the skin and cosmetics sections also have a tinting option available for each layer.
    2. Mocap: The mocap tab includes 17 motion capture animations. The moods at the top can be selected as your default animations. The expressions you choose to play below will go back to your default mood if you have one activated. You can play animations individually or choose several to play at random. The poses button pauses animations for photos. The talk button underneath the expressions will enable lip movement when you are on voice or typing in chat. The auto expression syncs with the SL animations that can be found in animated furniture etc…
    3. Looks: In the looks tab, you can save your favorite skin and makeup combinations for easier access in the future.
  • Skin & Body Appliers: They come with a skin available in the HUD in 7 different tones. You can pick up matching body appliers at the LAQ mainstore for varying prices. I picked up the Maitreya body appliers and they cost L$299 per tone.
  • Motion Capture Animations: They are animated using real life movements and these animations come with the HUD and are available in the main HUD. LAQ has a youtube channel and a 10 minute video where they showed how these animations work in detail.
  • Omega Compatibility: The skin, tattoo, eyebrows, hairbase, eye makeup and lipstick layers have Omega pre-installed, so no system kit is needed. You can wear any Omega applier of your choice on these head without any relay hud.
  • Eye fx: This feature adds shading and eye reflections on a separate layer from the eye itself. This way, shading and reflections stay intact even when your avatar looks around. Your eyes will also reflect light in the evening. You can turn this feature on and off at the top of the features tab.
  • 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 Mallory Cowen, to see how she prefers to be contacted for customer service issues as I will probably not be able to assist you with that.

What’s in a Shape?

Last month I released a standard second life shape directly to my marketplace store. The only reason I did that is because people kept asking about my shape and so I thought I would experiment and see what I could come up with. I didn’t expect to, but I sold quite a few of them.
