The new releases coming out tomorrow (January 6th) from Lelutka are absolutely beautiful. Two heads – named “Nova” and “Erin” – are the newest of an Evolution line being released by the brand. You will find improved materials, lots of modification options that are new from previous heads released, and the mesh itself is very lovely. For the first two weeks, these heads will be on sale for L$3500, afterwards being bumped up to their normal price of L$5000 per head, so definitely get in there and demo, grab up your copies, and start your makeover before the promotional period ends.
In this introductory post I am showing off Erin, because my androgynous character Ghost always makes an appearance when there are new female heads being made available by Lelutka.
Besides featuring such elements as being able to modify lashes separately (top and bottom instead of the default of both) and being able to change the size of eye irises, these new heads are optimized for use with Bakes on Mesh. That does mean that old makeup and tattoo appliers will no longer work on these heads. Optimized for use with Bakes on Mesh, this head is geared toward the future of SL and as such, start dusting off all of those old tattoos and cosmetics or take advantage of the many new updates and releases that are already including the Bakes on Mesh layers for use in styling your new looks. From what I understand, skin appliers will still work with these new heads for those favorites you already have in your inventory.
There are several materials options for the skin, eyes, teeth, and makeup to take advantage of. I had a chat with the designer, and there will be a developer kit out there for those of us who release products that have materials options. So, keep an eye out if you are a designer reading this and are wanting to have access to make appliers so that your materials can still be utilized on this new line of heads. I’ll be grabbing my kit the moment they become available tomorrow, because we know I like my shine and I want everyone else to continue enjoying the shine on my products with their new Lelutka model of choice.
There are also new HD makeup and lipstick options for specialized cosmetics designed on the HD spectrum so be certain to keep your eye out on your favorite cosmetics designers for what they’ll be coming up with to take advantage of these options.
The skin I am featuring is by Glam Affair, made for the ideal application on this new Evolution line. The one I have chosen for this look is “Xia”. These are not applier based, but instead are tattoo system layers in order to fully use the Bakes on Mesh system these heads are focused on.
There are tons of updates and options with this new line of heads. I’ve only scraped the surface. Be sure to keep an eye out on Lelutka’s official Flickr and website so you can grab all of the details.
I am also wearing a fabulous hair recently released by Exile, called “Angelina”. The materials, the colors, the style options, oh my. It’s gorgeous and it suits Ghost exceptionally well so I had to show it off here. I did add a few additional hair strands for the art of the composition, but this hair is extremely detailed and beautiful with its alpha texturing all on its own. I’m a little late on doing a shout out for this release so while Collabor88 is busy setting up for its January round you may be able to find this already available in main store.
