I will be honest here, I almost gave up on Simone. It just wasn’t feeling like “Sylvia”, you know?
One of the things that has changed since the coming of these new bento heads are the old school shape makers that have come back to give shape making a new life. To be completely honest I looked on the Marketplace quite a bit to find shapes that I could mod that felt close to who I see my avatar to be.
I like Simone, I do but there were things that didn’t work for me. The eyes wont calm down until I figured out that you had to center them on the hud. I still can’t figure out how to change my brows, and while the expressions are great I do feel that they could be differently organized. There are several limitations on the sliders that are not on the Catwa Bento head. I couldn’t get my eyes tilted quite the way I wanted. There were just little things that bugged me but overall I do like the makeup buttons quite a bit. I feel that I was able to modify a very unique face.
The biggest part of getting these heads to look right is the skin. The Glam Affair skin at Uber was quite perfect for me. Lucrezia, is the name. There are a ton of cute eyelashes and brows too. One thing that I love about Bento heads is you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to fit your brows how you want them. They are automatic now and I love it.
I’m curious to see if stores will release other versions of bento heads and with bento Second Life seems so much more open to possibility.
I was recently looking at the Luxe Box site and noticed something new “All past Luxeboxes are available to purchase at our in-world boutique starting on the 1st of every month. You must join the Luxe Box group to be able to purchase them. All past Luxeboxes are available for L$2,000.” So if you really loved something in one of the boxes, to me this is a good deal.
In Luxe Box for July:
-tres blah- Ken Kimono
Foxes – Lacy Bralette – LuxeBox July
REIGN.- STACEY WEDGES
The skybox from Scarlet Creative and the round chair that I’m sitting on are also in the Luxe Box!
I spent a nice afternoon with my newly adopted daughter Britain (you can see her flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/britainknave/ as well as her version when she posts it!) We took a picture at the Fleeting Heart sim with a pose from Purple Poses. Blueberry had a major mainstore release today (These skirts and my top) so make sure you go and check it out!

Izzie’s recently came out with tear appliers that are compatible with different mesh faces so I tried the tears for the Lelutka Simone face (I have on the Vera Pink Fuel Appliers which are at Collabor88) and I was reminded of a beauty queen.
It could have been the big lipsticked lips or the tears but I went with it. Nylon Outfitters has a nice Miss Universe set complete with dress, crown and sash so I used that in my photo and this “Code Uma” hair from Moon which is at collabor88. My pose is from Flowey.
Now that Uber is open, I must tell you that I love these perfect little panties that come from Erratic. This bustier from Just Because? It fits divinely. A newer to me place named Vale Koer made these heels and this couch is from Junk.
My pose is from Flowey, the hair is from Lelutka and the necklace is from Maxi Gossamer.
Goals. We all have them. What are some of yours? A very sweet person in SL gave this book to me recently and I’m thinking about what my goals are for 2016. I’m also thinking about what is coming to Uber next. This outfit from Spirit is great to me. The Sweater and Leggings are both super cute. Uber will open on the 25th!
Coming to Uber:
SPIRIT – Maddy leggings
SPIRIT – Maddy sweater
This body suit from Just Because, is totally sexy. It’s brand new at the Mesh Addicts event and has many colors and a few different patters to choose from.
