When Bento heads were first released I went and got the demos for both the Lelutka and Catwa Catya heads. I have always preferred the pre-bento mesh heads from Catwa having had the Jessica head for a long time and switching to Destiny many months ago now. The thing is I was super happy with Destiny and didn’t see a need to change but every now and again I would dig out the demos and play with the Bento shape I had started to work on. With The Skin Fair coming up soon I thought I’d give it another go and quickly decided that the Catwa head wasn’t going to be for me. It’s taking me some time to get used to the Lelutka hud again having had Catwa for so long but I’m finally at the point where I was happy with the shape I had put together and took the plunge on the Lelutka Bento Simone 2.5. I’m really happy with how much of ‘Kess’ I’ve managed to keep and although I think there will be several tweaks and subtle changes to come over the next few weeks I’m a pretty happy Kessy right now!
Over the last 3/4 years there have only been 2 skins I’ve settled on regularly – Lara Hurley and The Skinnery (though League comes a close third). I found the Lara Hurley Iza skin worked best for the look I was trying to achieve though I plan trying some different appliers and make ups too.
About the Stuff:
As soon as I had decided on Lelutka I whizzed quickly over to Kustom 9 to grab the hairbase and hair that I had seen there a few days ago from Tableau Vivant. I am really liking these tight hairbases with add on hairs.
My outfit is a new release from E-Clipse Design available at the new round of Shiny Shabby. It comes in fits for Belleza Freya and Isis, Slink Hourglass and Original and Maitreya Lara (worn). It’s a four piece outfit including the necklace and has options to change the metal textures on several elements including the bra and panties. I’ve matched it up with some pieces from the new set by RealEvil, also at Shiny Shabby. The set consists of a choker, rings and bracelets with a texture change hud for the leather, lace and metals with a large range of metallic and solid colours so there’s lots of different ways to wear it.
