I've really enjoyed some of the expressions that come with the Genus head...if I had more time for taking pictures I'd try to capture that perfect moment in an animation.

Yes, they're quite subtle and well done. So subtle, in fact, that I have no idea what the represented "moods" are supposed to be . . . I just run one by default. It's much superior to the Vista Bento animations I had been using.

In terms of looking a little older, I reckon you could probably manage it with the Genus classic...or at least try before jumping in the deep end of a new head investment. Little changes to a shape - a slight droop to an eye or brow, adjusting a chin line, taking some fullness out of lips and cheeks - combined with a wrinkle layer or even a new skin can work wonders for adding a bit of maturity to an avatar. Even makeup changes the perception of age...it kinda gets addictive working the subtle adjustments.

Yes, I've played with some of these things -- bags under the eyes, for instance, help a bit. I've tried the "wrinkle" option on the Genus HUD as well . . . it's much too strong for what I'm looking for, though. Some subtle laugh lines, creases at the corner of the eyes . . . that's more what I'm looking for. I should probably do a marketplace search for appliers: I'm sure someone must make these for Genus or Omega.

The two things that I've discovered make a big difference are (unsurprisingly) hair and, as you say, makeup. Especially makeup, actually, which is a bit unfortunate, as I'm mostly a minimalist with regards to eye shadow, lipstick, and blush. I prefer a light-to-medium bit of cat's eye, and a low-intensity nude lipstick. But you can really see the difference makeup makes in a side-by-side of these two recent pics. (Although probably the processing is somewhat of a factor there too.)

ETA: It appears from the MP that someone with the unlikely name "Peony Sweet-water" (clearly some kind of pseudonym!) actually makes and sells applier of just this type! As does Izzie's (which I think I once demoed, a long while ago). Time to do some demo testing, I guess!

Haven't been able to find the Doux Pink so far. I need a tied back plait for Ellie's Lara Croft outfit.

I'm away with family just now so limited to my phone. However, it's allowed me to grab some MP time and I have some new superhero outfits..... so consider that a warning.......when I get back to a modem I'll be dressing all the Newells for some pics....... :)

don't worry, I think the round of Equal10, where Pink was available, has just ended, so maybe soon you can find it in store (in couple of days - I noticed they sell hair from other events with some delay)

Guess you know where you find it now :D

Just remember to be a good Lara, or otherwise I find you :P

(I choose my avatar name Angelina after I saw the first Tomb Rider-movie, one of the first movies I saw with a badass girl hero, and I wanted to be one too :D)

It's still out at Equal 10, he moved it to the side to "past releases".

Session skins has age options on the newer ones. I'm not online now, but I think I have the option for 20, 30 and 40 years on the applier hud. Slight/more wrinkles were the difference. Might be worth to check that out. Can do a pic tomorrow (1am here, going to bed!)

Thanks, Zeta. I'd love to see a pic!

Session make great looking skins, although the complexity of changing over everything (head, body, hands) from The Skinnery to Session is a bit daunting. Also, I'm not seeing Genus or Omega appliers on their MP page. Maybe I need to visit the in-world store.
