LAQ Zahra Bento Mesh Head

LAQ Zahra Bento Mesh Head

LAQ has 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 LAQ Zahra head, here is some information about it:

  • 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.
  • Other LAQ Bento Heads: Other LAQ Bento heads that I’ve blogged in the past are: LeiaSkyeScarletRebelRinaNeveNyxLuluJadeAna, and Gaia.

Now watch my video for this head:

Here is some information about the main bento HUD:

  • Price: The main bento HUD is available by itself for the price of L$3000 at the LAQ mainstore. Any of the LAQ bento heads will work with this HUD and they will all only be L$1500 each.
  • Tabs: The HUD has three tabs: features, mocap and looks:
  • 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.
    • Skin: This tab has a link to the Laq mainstore where you can pick up a skin for your head. The skin for each head costs L$990 for all tones. You can also clear the skin in this tab as well as tint it.

    • Brows: You have a choice of 4 brow tones as well as an option to tint them. You can also control the opacity and clear if preferred.
    • Lashes: There are two lash options in which you can control the length and opacity on both the opper and lower lashes separately. You also have tinting and masking options.
    • Hairbase: There are 6 hairbase colors along with tinting and masking options.

  • Looks: In the looks tab, you can save your favorite skin and makeup combinations for easier access in the future.
