Following my video review of LightStar’s Athena mesh head, I am now taking a look at the second female Bento head from LightStar. This one is called Marian and has a softer look than Athena, who has a bolder face. Like Athena, Marian will soon be updated to 1.3, but what you are seeing here is version 1.2. The updates are taking a little longer than I might have indicated in my video and this is because the creator has decided to merge the different head layers into one object as well as merge the different HUDs into one. This will definitely offer a better user experience and deal with some of the concerns I voiced in the video. The updated heads will also include a matching body applier. For these photos, however, I am once again using PXL’s Heidi applier, this time in the SunKissed tone.
The sweet lingerie was from Luxuria for the most recent 50 Linden Friday. It does not appear to be available in the store right now, however.
The hair is Wasabi Pills latest release, Fleur. It is available at the current round of Uber and comes both in rigged and unrigged versions.
In this photo, I am also trying out the Expression HUD from LightStar. Like I mentioned on the video, I find most expressions for mesh heads to be too strong, but there are actually quite a few subtle ones in here too that work nicely to add a bit of character. Keep in mind, however, that this HUD only works for LightStar heads.
