We've been discussing various bento heads in this thread and another. I've been reading. I bought a LeLutka head not too long ago, and because I whizzed through playing with the demo instead of taking my time, I thought I could tweak it more than I could. It is a very pretty head, but not me... too glam. Too cheekbone-y. I read here/there about the pro/cons of the Genus head, and decided to take the leap. I bought the Classic after spending HOURS with the demo... wasn't going to make that mistake again. SR always was kind of a girl next door type (whatever that means), as opposed to model. She was created in system with a lot of work and there is a RL family resemblance. She started out like my younger, prettier cousin. When I turned SL ten yrs. I went totally new! Nope. Couldn't do that, either. 

Well, the Classic allowed me to do an updated system Seicher look. I wasn't going for an exact copy, but if I had I could have gotten even closer. System SR's face was a tad leaner, the nose a bit thinner and less turned up (the current one is closer to "family resemblance" than the original) and the eyes were bigger. But I think I captured the spirit of original SR. She's paler, poor dear, probably Vit. D deficient. The hair is THE SAME as in the 2010 photo! And I forgot how good it was. And it doesn't really add so much to my complexity!!! Not any more than a newer hair, and a lot less than some. I'm going to be wearing it for a while. :)

PS: The Forum was Spot On with their comments pros/cons of the Genus head and HUD.

Quick screenshot (with bad lighting) for comparison sake, with the bottom photo showing the LeLutka I've been wearing.

The mesh head doesn't quite match the system head.

No. It doesn't. On purpose. As I said in the post that went with the photos:
