LAQ Vivien Bento Mesh Head

LAQ Vivien Bento Mesh Head

The LAQ Vivien Bento head was released back in November of 2017. I didn’t get a chance to blog it back then and when it was first released it was sold in a different way for a different price.

In April 2018, LAQ changed the way they sell their bento heads. They are now selling their main bento HUD separately and you only need to purchase that one time. After that, you can buy as many LAQ bento heads as you like, they will all work with that one single HUD.

In today’s post I will cover the latest information about LAQ Vivien head:

  • Head Price: LAQ bento heads are all now only L$1500 each and are available at the LAQ mainstore. The main bento HUD and the skins for the heads are both sold separately. The main bento HUD is L$3000 and only needs to be purchased once for all Laq Bento heads.
  • Skin Price: The skin for each head is sold separately for L$990 for all tones.
  • Body Appliers: You can pick up matching body appliers at the LAQ mainstore for varying prices. At the moment they are on sale for L$25.
  • 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. I’ve been told that the new heads don’t have omega pre-installed and you need to purchase the Omega System Kit for it.
  • Motion Capture Animations: To get the animations to work on the head, you must purchase the main bento HUD, which is sold separately for L$3000.
  • 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. You can also join the LAQ updates inworld group to get news, updates, and assistance from the other group members.
  • Other LAQ Bento Heads: Other LAQ Bento heads that I’ve blogged in the past are: SandyPoppyZahraLeiaSkyeScarletRebelRinaNeveNyxLuluJadeAna, and Gaia.

Here is some information about the main bento HUD:

  • Features Tab: The features tab has the most amount of options:
    • Hide/Show: Check or uncheck the face tattoo or ears to make them hide or show.
    • 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 and play with its opacity.
    • Mouth: You can turn both mouth layers on or off to hide or show the lipsticks on both layers.
    • Neck: You can turn the blender on or off and also pick your neck size to match up with your mesh body.
