LeLutka – or Undivided, whichever you want to say are releasing THREE new heads! YAY! Stella, Karin and Lotte are out in a couple of days time and you’ve probably already seen a sneaky peak, but I couldn’t resist doing one myself too.
There are a lot of opinions out there on mesh heads – “everyone looks the same” – “why does nobody look unique anymore” – “why can’t I have a mesh head I can change, pfft” – there really isn’t anything I can say to sway anyones opinion, I once looked at mesh heads and was like PFFT – I wanna look like ME! I have been in SL since 2004 and my face (minus a few tweaks here and there) has ALWAYS been my face – nothing was ever going to change that, not even if I fell in love with a skin that made me look ridiculous, I wouldn’t change my face. But I have to say I am LOVING the mesh heads. Yes, ok – we may wear them and look slightly similar, but I honestly do not look at these pictures, then say go over to Sasys blog, or Grazias and think OH HEY – TWINS! I think I look like my version of me in the mesh head, and they look like theirs.
I’ve shown the heads in three different skins – Glam Affair (the skin it comes with) – Adam N Eve, and then Izzies – of course the ability to mix and match skins and makeups on these heads also give you the chance to make a look really your own. I see lots of SL avs who I know people think are stunning, and I look and think “really? wow” – it’s just not my bag. They think they are pretty tho and that’s what matters, just like I think Willis’ face is pretty – I wear it, it’s mine, I don’t care what others think – It’s the same with the mesh heads really – you may say I look like others, but I just don’t FEEL like I do. You could stand me in a room with 40 people wearing the same one, in different skins/makeups and I would still feel like me.
Thats the beauty of SL and always has been, you can be what and who you want to be, however you choose to be it, and by golly I choose to be a mesh head lover – I don’t think I look like anyone else, I don’t FEEL like anyone else, and I don’t dress or blog to please others (well ok, I don’t mean you – store owners/blogger group owners – I WANT TO MAKE YOU HAPPY!). Some people choose tattoos and piercings, some people choose to have grey hair, or neon pink hair, some choose hand drawn skins, some choose photosourced skins, some like mesh bodies, some won’t embrace.. it’s the same with heads – some love them, some hate them, some want to love them but feel they have to hate them, some hate them but want to love them.
Personally, I want a whole army of mesh heads – and thanks to the lovely ladies at LeLutka, that army is growing!
