Leilani

Leilani


Glam Affair have released another new skin applier for the new Lelutka Evolution mesh heads. 'Leilani' can be found at ACCESS event and includes appliers plus BOM/System Tattoo layers. There are 12 skin tones to choose from, each with 4 brow colours and no brow version.

I've noticed there is still a lot of confusion about Bakes on Mesh (BOM) and I see the question "Why go BOM?" quite a bit. 
Well, for one, BOM provides you with the option to wear a lot more layers for optimal customisation and, two, you can choose the order in which they are applied. So you can be sure that your makeup goes on over your scars, brows etc. and not brows on top of makeup. 
It also means you don't have to wear layer upon layer on your mesh head and mesh body, reducing the lag caused by wearing all those layers. This has to be a huge benefit to everyone!
BOM also means you can change your mesh head and body but keep your skin/tattoo layers the same without having to reapply. 
BOM blogger bonus, you can actually see what layers you are wearing instead of remembering what appliers you put on! 😛

Whilst BOM does allow you to wear your old system layers, that is not the primary purpose of it. New layers created for BOM will give the high quality finish that you are more used to with your mesh head appliers. 

The Lelutka Evolution mesh heads are BOM ready. You can toggle between the BOM and applier version in the HUD. Be sure to use the correct alpha when using BOM. If you have a BOM ready head and body you won't need to alpha them when utilising BOM.
There are a selection of alpha's included with the new Lelutka Evolution mesh heads, depending what BOM body parts you are using. I'm using the 'LeLUTKA.Alpha.Head&Body.BOM' - my eyes are still mesh with appliers!
If you are using Belleza/Maitreya mesh bodies, you'll need to grab the free BOM relay HUDs from Marketplace to allow you to utilise Bakes on Mesh with them.

You can find lots more info on the Lelutka Evolution mesh heads on their website here and here, and also my previous post here

Rawrrr! - Nova & Adele

Rawrrr!

Glam Affair has released a new skin applier for the brand new Lelutka Evolution mesh head line! Her name is 'Adele' and you can find her at Collabor88. Adele includes Bakes on Mesh (BOM) layers as well as skin appliers. There are 12 skin tones, each with 4 brow colours and a no brow option. 
Glam Affair have also released a selection of HD makeup appliers for the new Lelutka mesh heads at Collabor88. Each pack includes 5 colours. 

I'm still loving playing with the new Lelutka heads. You can see more info about the new lines' features in my previous post here.
 The materials are sooooo good and give such a realistic effect. There are some really fun facial expressions included in the HUD too. Oh, and the bento lip piercing is included with the head. The HUD provides different metal colour options.
These heads are primarily designed to be used with BOM but you can still choose to use skin appliers instead. Makeup layers are now for HD appliers only

[monso] have a cute new messy hair-do at FaMESHed called 'Roxi'. There are left and right versions included, 2 rigged sizes and a non-rig option.

Erin

Lelutka have released 2 brand new mesh heads as a start to their new 'Evolution' range.
Let me introduce you to Erin. 

Link to Flickr (HQ version)

The Lelutka Evolution heads, Erin and Nova, will be released on 6th January. 
An introductory price will be set to L$ 3700 for the first two 'Evolution' line female heads until 20th January 2020. After this 2-week period, the price will be set back to the standard price of L$ 5000.
The 'Evolution' heads and their HUDs are completely new. The heads are 100% Bakes on Mesh (BOM) ready and they are intended to be used as such. However, for those of you who still prefer to use appliers, old skin, eyes and lashes appliers can also be used. Choose by clicking the 'Bakes on Mesh' button on/off from the top of the head and eyes tab.
Old makeup appliers/layers have been replaced with HD LIP and HD EYESHADOW layers and old makeup appliers will not work on them. Skins, Lashes and Eyes have remained Omega Appliers compatible. 
There are several Alpha layer options included so you can mix and match your BOM body parts. You can still also mix and match BOM layers with appliers (appliers will always go on top!). Remember you must use a BOM compatible viewer to see this function correctly.
The HUD is now tiny on your screen and opens into a slim side bar. Minimise by clicking the arrow on the top left. 

There have been lots of materials options added for the new line. There are softer (feather indicator on HUD) and stronger detail versions, as well as young and mature versions of the materials. In addition, the shininess sliders have now been elaborated to included both intensity and glossiness so that you edit these separately.


There are many more lash and eye options included in the new HUD. The HUD also allows you to change the upper and lower lashes independently, plus lashes have mask layer option to prevent alpha glitching with hair.

The new heads also have an improved rigg, enabling the user to create more shape options with sliders. They come with their own set of animations included in the HUD - 23 new moods and 38 new expressions.


Glam Affair have released 5 new faces for the Lelutka Evolution mesh heads. They come as skin appliers and BOM tattoo layers. I'm wearing 'Nicole' in main pic and the pics below. There are 12 skin tones to choose from, each with 4 brow colour options and a no brow version. These skins will be available to purchase from the Glam Affair mainstore from 7th January, where you will also be able to find BOM skin layers for Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and Legacy mesh bodies.
Please note Glam Affair skin layers/appliers are not included with the Lelutka Erin mesh head, they are a separate purchase.
