Sneak Peek: Lia The Vista Bento Head

Featured image above showing off the Vista bento head Lia was made by Vista Animations.

Yes, you read that right! Vista Animations is currently beta testing a bento head. Vista is arguably the largest, most popular Animation Overrider (AO) company in Second Life. Their bento hands enjoyed popularity when they were the first to be released on the grid. With plenty of bento heads on the market will Vista’s be as much of a hit? Read on to learn all we know and see the  head in action then let me know what you think!

What We Know

Vista’s Facebook page opened the beta testing for the new head (named Lia) up to 30 lucky users on November 17, 2017. The first public version of Lia will be available next week according Vista’s comments on this post. The full price will be L$2500 according to their comments on this post, however invited beta testers get it for half off.

7 Deadly s{K}ins is also a part of this release! Their skin Saga (shown here) is included in the Vista HUD. 7DS’s November group gift Chantal (skin & shape) came with the following information via notecard:

“This month’s group gifts come with a little story, A story to soon to tell.”

In addition the shape is called “7 Deadly s[K]ins – VISTA shape Chantal Group” leading me to believe that 7DS VIP members have a free skin/shape for Vista’s new head already! Not a group member? The group is currently L$225 to join and includes skins every month. Next month the group price is increasing as there is an advent event planned with tons of free skins for group members. If you want to join the time is now.

Additional HUD skins come from YS&YS and Avenge. So what does the HUD look like? Check out the post below from Vista!

KingbalStores’ Shocking Mini

KingbalStores has brought a cute mini dress to Fashion Dazzle.

Celia Dress – Shock

This outfit is one of my favorites from KS. I really like the peekaboo cutouts. I’m such a sucker for showing skin under clothing. The cutouts and the sleeves are covered in the same transparent material. If you look closely you’ll also see the tops of the sleeves have some cool lacing as well.

The dress style itself is called Celia. Shock is the HUD which gives the black/white and black/grey patterns. You can see the other pattern in the Pics & Credits section below. This outfit is materials enabled so you can play with that if you like a little extra gloss to your look.

The dress itself fit my Maitreya body perfectly right out of the box. The HUD is also clear and easy to use. I do want to note that the designer is very kinda and super helpful if you do happen to run into any issues. That gives products an extra bonus in my book!

Celia in Shock fits Slink, Maitreya, TMP, Belleza, eBODY, Tonic, and Classic bodies. It’s available for L$199 exclusively at the KingbalStores booth at Fashion Dazzle this month. The booth has other outfits starting at L$150 so make sure to check them out, too.

The Samothrace & French Quarter Boots

Loordes of London has an outfit as well as matching shoes out for Fashion Dazzle this month.

The Samothrace

The Samothrace definitely fits the geometric theme of this month’s Fashion Dazzle. It looks like something you’d see on a runway. It comes in five different color options, each with a different design in the middle. You can check all of them out in the slideshow toward the bottom of the post!

The outfit comes in the five standard fitmesh sizes, so make sure to grab a demo to confirm it fits your body before purchasing. I initially had some issues with my wrists and part of the torso sticking out with the Maitreya body, but these were fixed by making some tweaks to my shape and the poses I was using.

The Samothrace is available at the Loordes of London booth at Fashion Dazzle for L$50 each.

The French Quarter Boots

The French Quarter boots pair wonderfully with The Samothrace, as to be expected. They are comfy looking boots with five color options. Each can be viewed in the slideshow a little further down.

The shoes come in one standard size. This won’t be an issue for most people as you can just remove or hide your feet if they cause any issues. The boots fit wonderfully on my Maitreya body.

The French Quarter boots are also available at the booth for L$50 a pair.

Signature Dove’s November Events (ft. Carol G Tattoo)

I’m a huge fan of tattoos, especially ones that stand out. Geometric Compass by [CAROL G] is a tattoo that is great for various RP and casual avatars. I don’t need to describe it to you, I’m sure you can see the design for yourself. Please note that the lines are straight, however it’s not very often that your avatar’s back is perfectly straight so I wanted to show off that it still looks nice with movement.

There is a large design on the back as seen here. The image at the top of the post shows the arm design on the right arm. The tattoo is mirrored for the left arm. This does mean that the text is backwards on the left, however if that’s something that will bother you it can be covered with an armband, backless top, etc.

Geometric Compass has three shades included ranging from a fresh black to an evenly faded grey. The tattoo comes in appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and Omega. You can purchase it at the [Carol G] booth at Fashion Dazzle for L$280.

Inspired By: Hel

To celebrate my favorite holiday, Halloween, I decided to create an avatar loosely based on the Norse goddess Hel. Those of you familiar with Hel know she’s described as being “part black and part white.” The video game Smite takes this literally by splitting Hel into two personalities and entities. I’ve based this look on that split image.

Split Hair

The hair is TRUTH‘s Ophelia. The hair itself is split colored, these images aren’t edited for that effect. You can choose any color in the HUD for either side. I highly recommend snagging the fatpack for this hair if you don’t usually. It gives you so many more options since you can wear two colors! The styling HUD also allows for the hair to sit differently as well. Ophelia is available at Salem until October 31.

Dual Skins

Two skins are featured here, both by 7 Deadly s{K}ins. The darker skin is Pepper in Mud and the lighter is Key in Dew. Both are designed for LAQ bento heads and come in Omega appliers. Pepper is currently available as part of the Trick or Treat hunt as well as for direct purchase at the 7DS store. Key was available as part of The Black Fair this month.
