Recommended Bento Mesh Head

Recommended Posts

I'm new here in SL :) , planning to buy my first Bento Mesh Head and also plan to go for Lelutka because the HUD is quite easy for me to use when I tried it on Demo. 

But what I really want for a head is the expressions, want to look good for my photos & Easy to find make ups to buy... 

 

I would like to know your suggestions and advice :D

buy the head YOU like and can afford... not what others want to see on you.

I wear LeLutka's Simone 2.something head.  Eyeroll is priceless. :)  While it is my favorite for many reasons including the HUD controls, I don't care much for the smile animations with Simone.  Maybe it's the shape I use tho.  Chloe, on the other hand, seems to animate better

If you want expressions, Catwa's shear volume makes it the best bet.  You can also spend more on expression add-ons than you spent on the head.

For makeup, any head that is Omega compatible will be swimming in colors to choose from. Not all LeLutka heads are Omega compatible even with a relay.  However, just like Catwa, there are a bilgillion makeup appliers for LeLutka without needing Omega.

If you ask me (and you just did) I would say buy LeLutka Chloe.  I am totally biased too so take that into account.

I have the Lelutka Simone Bento & the Catwa Lona Bento heads.
Both  are very good products & I think you'll be happy with either a Lelutka or a Catwa Bento head & both heads are well supported with appliers.
The Lelutka Simone Bento head is omega compatible & you don't need to wear an Omega relay - you just need to buy the Omega add-on & it will inject the scripts into the head & the head will then take all Omega appliers.
You need to wear the Omega relay with the Catwa heads but most applier creators provide a Catwa applier anyway so it's rarely needed.

I've been loving the GA.EG Barbara head I bought recently. It's got a bunch of add ons that integrate nicely into the main HUD for makeup, eyelashes, hairbases and such, and you can demo everything all at once and tweak the shape to see if you like it before you buy. For Omega makeup you need the Omega relay. GA.EG also makes nice eyes and has a bunch of animations and piercings that work well with the head and have their own separate HUDS to control. All of the customizations do add up though....

Woah (╯✧▽✧)╯ When I tried on demos I really liked the Lelutka Chloe actually :) .

Hmm a question... once I see Lelutka compatible, does it mean it works fine with Simone, Chloe and Cate? or just w/ specific heads?

btw thanks for the advice :D

Even though you've likely made your decision already, I thoughtI'd throw out there that Genesis Lab has some really beautiful bento heads. I use Lena, which has an aquiline nose. :)

The only problem is that it isn't omega skin compatible.

I strongly recommend Mayreal:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/MAYREAL-Bento-Mesh-Head-Nadia-PROMO-PRICE/11023066

For $1500, it's a lot cheaper than the competition. And when I demo'd it, it was also better.

It's basic form is very close to the default SL head, so you will still look mostly like 'you' when you put it on, and can then just tweak in some perfections.

 

It is both Omega, and includes a copy/mod version for customization.
