LeLutka Mesh Head Hud

Happy Birthday Whimsy Winx

So on our whirl wind birthday tour, we hit a lot of stores and events, while Whimsy played busdriver. We often do that, delegate who has to be the one that does all the tping of our little band of shoppers, usually it is me because I tend to lack patience waiting, and usually find that Whimsy got distracted on her way from the website with the slurls, to my IM box.

It has been a great week so far, with the release of the LeLutka Mesh Heads, and that incredible New build. If you haven’t been over there yet and explored it all, you are really missing out.

I have been having a great time with the LeLutka heads, especially playing with the head hud. Not only does it control the main features of wearing your skin, but it also does a lot more, you just have to know how to use it, and it is very intuitive. All shimmers and Gloss effects are only visible when using the Advanced Lighting Model option in Preferences (Ctrl + P) then your graphics tab. You can choose to turn it on and use the None option on the dropdown beneath it to not actually have your shadows in play, just to see the glossy looks without it being too hard to render everything else.

Section 1

On the top of the hud you have the controls for the head itself… pretty simple really, mouth closed or open, eyes the same, ears hiding or showing – which is either great for wearing other ears, such as the brilliant ones from Mandala, or turning them off because they poke through a hairstyle you are wearing. Then you have the blink on/off options, so that you don’t blink through a photo, or just because you want to wear someone elses mesh lashes and as you cannot get those to blink with the head, stopping the blink makes it work perfectly.

Then you have the necksize, so 0 works great with the Maitreya body, as do the other sizes, as I do believe they are all the same, or you use 5 for the Slink physique body, as both are a great fit for the head. They could work for the others out there, but those two are the ones that they know do work, and as I am wearing the Slink in all my posts this past week, you know that is true.

Section 2

Next section is the skin tones, and the shimmer (specular/normals) for the head. So the ten skin tones used are the ones that Glam Affair makes, perfect fit with the Maitreya body, as they come with the same tones in their HUD and you can buy the appliers for the Slink body. So once you have your skin tone ready, and the face of course – there is a different face for each of the heads, you can actually mix and match the head huds, or appliers. Then you have a shimmer slider, a slider which is so cool just being slidable, which increases or decreases the shimmer on your skin, which is like a lovely shine effect. This is the default specular maps for the head, which may be replaced with other shimmer effects once other creators start releasing huds. You can remove the effect with the Remove button, and Restore with the Restore button – Restore will bring you back to the original default, if you have used something else.

Section 3

Eyeshadows area…right now there aren’t any separate eyeshadow appliers, other than the ones included with the head itself, but they are wonderful. You use the Show or Hide buttons, they do the function they are named for. Then you have the Blend and Shimmer sliders. Blend is my all time favourite slider, on both this section and the next. The Blend slider controls how much of the texture is seen…so if you have a really strong Green eyeshadow for instance, that is like super heavy for night time looks, you can use the Blend slider, and decrease its opacity and create your own early evening, or day time shadow look…BRILLIANT!  Then you have Shimmer, again like the above it has its own default that you can Restore or Remove, and when you use it you will see the increase in the shine to the eye area. You can also choose to not have the shimmer on by sliding the slider all the way down, but keeping the Blend all the way up, different looks whatever way you use it.

Take Note: Some skin appliers will have makeup included on the skin applier itself, you cannot control those layers with the blend or shimmer/gloss sliders. 

Section 4

Lashes, two types pretty straight forward, you just toggle between them. You can also turn them off, to wear other lashes you may be more in love with…but remember to turn off your blink, or you will look a little odd. Then below that you will see a Tint Lashes option, an arrow that opens a panel that has a colour picker you can go to town with. Create so many different colours you like.

To the right of that you have the hairbase option. Included with the head package is a hairbase hud. Once you wear that and choose the hairbase you want to wear, you may need to use the SHOW button on the Head Hud. You can turn it off with the Hide button, and then below again a drop down colour picker, and you can tint the hairbase to match other hair you have, or possibly rock out some great colours and match your tinted lashes to them.

Section 5 

Now you have gotten together your look of awesomeness, and you are about to be tpd somewhere where you have to look completely different…do not despair, the 5 save preset slots are here. On the left of the hud, you have an arrow to click and out pops 5 shiny buttons. Got your whole look together? skin base, eyeshadow, lipstick and shimmers and glosses all where you want them…then you tinted your lashes and hair base and you look fabulous! Now left click and hold down on one of the presets and it is saved for when you want that look again. You could make up day and night looks, and just toggle between them. Run out of spaces you can either save over them by holding down on them again, and a drop down will ask if you want to save over it, or you can make a copy of the hud and save another 5 on that.

If any of this confuses you, you can click on the ? button at the top of the hud and get zoomed on over to the website where there is a FAQ.

For those wanting to know, the make up appliers kits will be available at LeLutka from the 6th of April, and the handpicked skin creators will be releasing a little while after that.

So I was out shopping as I said, and the lighting and everything over at Kustom9 looked great, so I put on my VR Studio Library, already packed with my Marukin poses from C88, and posed away. I love that thing, that and the VR Studio and Hud, are my everything.

My Attic is about to close up for another session on the 31st, so you need to make sure you get on over and take advantage of the incredible items. I am wearing one of the beautiful vintage inspired dresses by Dead Dollz, there are three colours to choose from, and they are all superb. The fit is also excellent with my body I just had to turn off my legs and midsection with the Slink Physique alpha hud and I was ready to go.

I am very excited that the new LeLutka heads are coming, and that everyone will get to experience them soon…but also the build, which is just magnificent. I will do more on how the heads actually work closer to release, as I wanted to be sure nothing was going to change on the information from when I first got the heads, as they were still in beta stage.

The gorgeous shoes I am wearing are at Uber by Pure Poison and not only come in different versions for Maitreya and Slink but also mid and high versions, in case you do not have one or the other, how cool is that. Equally awesome is this lovely full bodied hairstyle by Exile, love the waves and just felt it needed me to be blonde in it.

Lacuna has made this stunning Lingerie set for My Attic. It has appliers and also system layers, so you can look super fabulous. I love the colours available and the lime green really shouts out to you. As they are only 95L during the event you can get as many as you can carry out the door.

This stunning bedroom set is by Cheeky Pea, it is a stunning mix of items,and I just loved the earthy tones in this one, there was another option more colourful in the boho theme of last Uber, but this one won me over. The bed is so neat too, it is scripted to have the bed linen fold down when you lay on it, and it has a lot of poses for great pic oppurtunities, or you know sleeping and stuff. I am wearing the Lana hair from LeLutka but I did play with it a lot with my tablet, because I have to get used to that thing, and my shoulders were getting chilly.

Wearing one of the COMING SOON LeLutka heads with the Clean skin appliers on it. You will get the clean option in every make up skin package when buying your appliers for these heads, so that is a definite win, when you consider all the looks you will be able to create once you build up a collection of make ups in the future.

LeLutka Head Stretch

LeLutka Head Stretch Collage

One of the exciting things about the LeLutka heads COMING SOON is that there is the ability to use the shape sliders for Head Stretch and Head Length. You will need to also adjust your eye sliders to get the perfect look, both eyespacing and eyedepth. The top left image in this collage is my own original shape, where my headstretch is 24, I went up by 10 for each image, so that also means there are another 60 looks if I had gone up by 1 slider number instead. So even if buying the same head as your bestie, you will be able to tweak enough to look different. I am wearing my red hair again, but am only using the default skin layer with options off for shimmer etc, so you can focus on the changes to shape.

I decided that with a name like Aria, this head needed some oppulance, so I went with this lovely gown by Gizza. Mixing it with one of the COMING SOON Skin appliers for Aria by Glam Affair, this dramatic makeup is stunning. I did already give my being a redhead for a while up, because when creating this picture I did like the depth of the darker hair better. The hair which is a bun attachment will also be included with the Lelutka heads, as well as the hairbase options, so straight out of the bag, you are going to be set.

To finish off the look the divine Prophecy Jewellery set by Mandala at this round of Uber is remarkable. It consists of necklace, earrings and fantastic ring with left or right hand attachment. The metal and stone work are amazing, and honestly his creativity in these pieces is amazing.

Only a few more days to go until you can get your very own LeLutka head…

For Ever More

Ever More

Another sneak peek at the COMING SOON heads by LeLutka. This is Ever and she is a delightfully strong charismatic face. Using the hairbase that will come with the LeLutka Heads, I was able to wear the older LANA style by LeLutka that is combed back off the face, and the combination is perfection. I fell in love with the red brows in the skin appliers by Glam Affair, that I think I will stay red for a while, or not…I tend to flit about in that area, but today I am going to pretend I will stick with it.

The Leda

Leda 1

Leda 2

If you are a member of the LeLutka group, you will remember that when they released their NEW textures for their hairstyles, they announced they were in the process of building a NEW Sim. There have been a few LeLutka builds over the years, and every one of them has been incredible. The last one was around the same time a few years ago, and it was the Mayfair build that many of you will be familiar with, as it is often used in photos.

This time though it is LeLutka mainstore getting the makeover, and the sneak peek teaser pics were shown on their flickr feed just the other day HERE. It looks incredible, and I can honestly say, that personally having been there already, it is astounding what those two ladies can achieve when they put their minds to it. Not only will it be amazing to shop at, but it is a blissful location, one which you will want to spend time at for either photographs of your own, or just because it has such a lovely ambience.

But that is not the only NEW news, those that have been admiring the Lelutka ‘heads’ for years now, when shooting their ads, will now have the opportunity to purchase, not one, not two but three different head styles when the sim re-opens. This is an exciting time for them, and those that are big fans of their work, and also big fans of mesh heads in general. The other excitement is that those that wear the Maitreya Body Lara, will have the instant matching of the skins included in that package, to work with the heads as all the textures and tones are Glam Affair creations. This too works in regards to Slink Physique fans, as you can see in the image, it is the Slink body that I am wearing. So you have two fabulous bodies that will work with the LeLutka heads.

I am wearing Leda, she is one of the three available, and I did not think she was my style from the begining, but now I have trouble taking her off. The other two heads are Aria and Ever, and Aria you can have a sneak peek of HERE, with Minnu being all sexy and lounge singery (yeah it’s a word, even if I just made it up :P ) The heads come with many features, and as this is an early teaser, I am not going to go into all the details on them yet, but get excited!

So while you all wait patiently for that, how about you come visit My Attic lol nice segue don’t you think…it is on until the 31st of March and the theme this round is Rock-a-billy Retro. I just love all the high-waisted items, and fun bright colours, and especially the amount of navy and red – love those combos. SySy’s did these gorgeous high-waisted shorts and bustier tops that come with appliers for Slink and Maitreya, as well as system layers so you do not miss out.

I am shooting my pics on the Dice poses prop Whimsy Winx and I made for My Attic, and the stunning shoes created by Bushu…the heels on these are stunners and as usual everything at My Attic is 95L during the event, so get over there asap.
