Before I launch into a discussion about the new LAQ head, I wanted to make sure I give glory to the clothing etc. from the full-body pic as I am wearing an awesome SWANK outfit from AnaSTyle. I am wearing the Mireio Shirt in White, the Mireio Jeans Shores without pockets, and the Mireio Boots and Long Socks in Black. This will be the outfit you will see me in for the next wee while. I LOVE it.
I took this photo at Bella's Lullaby and I am in the Firestorm-Alphax64 viewer.
Okay, go get a drink and some snacks and settle in. This is a long one!
So many people have been waiting for this day that I couldn't believe my luck when the doors opened and I was straight in. I am normally one of those people who takes weeks to get new items or products, but not this day!
I am looking a bit different today as I am wearing the brand new 'just out of the box' LAQ Lara Era2 Elle head and the shape that came with it as I wanted you to see it with very little modification. All I did was changed the eye colour, the lash length and put on some lipstick.
I am wearing the SupremeUHD head, but there is also a standard and an EvoX head option if for some reason you wanted those. However, I went for the latest look and am super impressed so far!
Here are some of the new features as stated in the release notecard:
The animations did not wow me straight away. They are definitely better than some other heads, but I still find the smiles strange even when I am wearing the LAQ shape. As I played around a bit I did start to enjoy them more. I will keep you posted.
I hate looking the same as everyone else, so I am hoping for an influx of cool shapes from the SL shape makers. I will play around with modifying the shape myself, but I did laugh out loud when I tried my usual shape with it. BIG no. Also, do not try an EvoX skin with this head. It will give you nightmares! I am using my normal 7 Deadly Skins VELVET bom skin in CARAMEL body skin and SupremeUHD Elle/Bare by LAQ. 1.5 for the head to match it as best I could. Doesn't look too bad. Looking forward to seeing what all the skin designers do with this one! (See full body pic)
One thing that has always bugged me with the mesh heads since they came in has been that darned neck line that I have to edit out of every photo. The latest mesh heads are a marked improvement, but it was still there. I can't see a neckline on this, but I will have to see it with different lights etc to really gauge if it is gone. If it is, I am going to be ecstatic.
