Magnificent GA.EG Bento Mesh Hipster Stache & Beard

Magnificent GA.EG Bento Mesh Hipster Stache & Beard

Today’s item is a game changer! GA.EG has a new product line called Magnificent and their first release for this new line is a bento hipster stache and beard! There are so many advantages to this bento beard and I will go through each of those in this post and video embedded below, but first here is some information about it:

  • Price: There are several different versions of this beard and all of them are priced at L$480 each and DEMOs are free. Make sure to purchase the version that goes with your favorite bento head. Some of these are experimental rigs so please try the DEMOs before buying to ensure that they will fit your shape.
  • Versions: These versions have currently been announced so far:
  • Color Packs: The beards are sold in three separate color packs:
    • Snow Pack: 3 Whites / 3 Salt’n Pepper
    • Sun Pack: 3 Blonds / 3 Reds
    • Night Pack: 3 Browns / 3 Blacks
  • Features on the HUD:
    • Beard  – ON / OFF (hide & show this part)
    • Mustache – ON / OFF (hide & show this part)
    • Smooth – ON / OFF (hide & show fade hair texture on the second overlapped layer )
    • Textures – Click on the texture of your choice to apply it
    • Advanced Material – ON / OFF (Only with Advanced Lighting Model activated)
    • Glossiness Customizable – Max -/+ / None / Reset
    • Detach – Click the cross button on the top right to rapidly detach the HUD.
    • Info – Click the info button to open the web site.
    • Pose – Click this button to put your avatar on “pose”.
  • Animate with Bento Animations: The rigged beards will also animate along with any bento animations the heads come with. I show that in the video using the Catwa Daniel animations HUD.
  • Model your beard using Appearance Sliders: The rigged bento beards can be modeled and changed using the appearance sliders in Second Life, just like you would change your bento head. Here are the main Sections / Sliders that you can play around with to change your beard’s look:
    • CHIN Section:
      • Chin Angle: depth of your beard (side view)
      • Jaw Shape: width of your beard (front view)
      • Chin Depth: front height of your beard (front view and side view)
      • Jaw Angle: back height of your beard (front view and side view)
      • Chin Neck: double chin height below your beard (front view and side view)
    • MOUTH Section:
      • Lip Cleft Depth: height of your mustache (front view)
      • Lip Cleft: width of your mustache (front view)
    • NOSE Section:
      • Nostril Division: height of the root of your mustache under your nose (front view)
      • All other sliders in your shape will also affect your beard but will also make visible changes in the proportions and shape of your face.
  • More information & Customer Service Questions: For more information about this head, please check out the Designer’s blogflickr or YouTube. If you have any further questions, please check the profile of the designer, her name is ElleEtGance, to see how she prefers to be contacted for customer service questions, as I will not be able to assist you with those.

Now watch my video on YouTube:

The two biggest advantages of this bento beard is how it animates along with bento animations and of course being able to change the look of it using appearance sliders. I have tried so many beards on my male alt over the years and I have never been as satisfied with any of them as I am with this one. Since it is rigged for the Catwa Daniel head, it fit perfectly as soon as I put it on. This is a must have for your hipster avatar looks!

UPDATE: I was informed that there have been bento beards released in the past, so perhaps it’s not a game changer as I stated above, but still pretty cool to me! My apologies for misinforming you guys!
