I’ve written before about my dislike of mesh heads.
They all seemed to have that ‘I just smelled something terrible’ look.
To me, they all looked mad – or hungry. 😛
Then, I saw some new mesh heads hit the market.
The Lelutka mesh heads were really the first ones I saw that made me actually consider purchasing a mesh head.
However, I still wasn’t thrilled with the look of the first three they offered.
Then they came out with the next set of three, and I again considered a purchase.
I own the Maitreya mesh body, which I absolutely love.
And the Lelutka heads are made to work seamlessly with the Maitreya body, so that’s good.
Plus, the Lelutka heads come with the same Glam Affair skin appliers that come with the Maitreya body.
So I wouldn’t have to purchase (or find) skin appliers.
Another point in Lelutka’s favor.
But then I saw a notice about the new mesh head from LOGO.
I had looked at their heads before, but they only use LOGO skins, no appliers.
So with no appliers to use on the Maitreya body, I would have to use the LOGO skins.
At that time, I had just purchased a new skin at Skin Fair, so the thought of changing again so quickly wasn’t appealing to me.
I really liked the LOGO heads, though, especially all the different expressions.
My main purpose for purchasing a mesh head would be for photographs.
Using the default avatar just adds sooo much editing time – and I’m lazy. 😛
Then I saw a notice that LOGO has added appliers for the Maitreya and Slink bodies.
So, I could purchase the LOGO head and get appliers so that I could use it with my mesh body.
So I have a decision to make.
Both the LOGO and the Lelutka heads are the same price.
So which one should I get?
I got demos and tried them all on.
I still can’t decide.
So I thought I’d see what you all think. 🙂
Here’s some shots of the various heads I tried on.
I didn’t include the Lelutka Leda, because it just didn’t look good.
And I only tried on the LOGO Alex, though LOGO has other heads as well.
I want something that will photograph well, give me options, and that I can feel like ‘me’ in.
I like the look of the LOGO skin, though even the darkest tone isn’t as dark as I’d like.
I do feel that the LOGO has the most ‘natural’ looking heads of all the ones I’ve seen.
Don’t mind the weird eye positions of the Lelutka heads – I just didn’t take the time to adjust my eyes for each head.
That’s something I just thought of – LOGO heads come with built-in eyes.
I’m assuming I could use my own?
For the Lelutka heads, I’m thinking the Lotte or the Stella seem to fit me best.
I do like the noses of the Lelutka heads a tad better than the options of the LOGO.
It’s so hard to choose!!
I think the LOGO has more options as far as expressions.
But I would have more options with makeups and skins with the Lelutka.
So which one??
Help me out and vote for your favorite. 😀

Gosh Kat. All my life i’ve been called ****head and ****head and *****head – and now I have to be called MESHHEAD???
LMAO, Path! I know, I know – I resisted initially at first too. But – they’re just soooo much easier to use when taking photos!! I doubt seriously I would ever use them to dance – mesh hands and feet cause enough problems!
That’s what I’m most afraid of – trying to dance and ride herd on a whole passel of mesh!!! 🙂
I don’t think any of them are there yet. I don’t think the LL head is too bad for doing photo editing. It’s just around the nose I think, although the ears leave a lot to be desired but are often covered by hair. I used to hate doing the jaggies around the shoulders and legs and fixing the “square” boobs etc. You have to love the liquify tool!
Just as the first mesh bodies needed improving so eventually will the heads be more acceptable to everyone. But frankly “getting dressed” is a right pain now with all the complications of mesh body parts and appliers etc. For a newbie it must be so overwhelming.
If mesh heads make the dance scene some of us won’t even get to see dancing heads! It will merely be a set and just like going to an art gallery with a series of huge shadow boxes with musical accompaniment.
Honestly, I’m wondering if mesh lovers will be the first to jump ship to Sansar, lol. I do love the liquify tool, but I’d much rather not have to use it, because I’m lazy. 😛
And you’re right – getting dressed is a total pain anymore. Alpha out your system bod, wear your mesh body, add your clothes, adjust all the alphas (if possible) so there are no pokey bits, add feet, hands, shoes, jewelry, hair, makeup – and it takes even longer if you need appliers for hands/feet/makeup! And a mesh head just adds to it all. Part of the reason I have outfit folders, to at least cut down on some of the hassle.
I can’t see mesh heads taking over the dance scene. I have a decent computer and what rezzes and what doesn’t is so random. For instance, I could see everyone in a dance number perfectly, except for one dancer whose hair would not rezz?!
Hi Kat – I agree with you about the decision. I didn’t blog the Cocoa look in the first link I’m putting in below, but the second link I blogged how I got the Logo Alex head to blend with my Lara body using the Glam Affair skins. One tiny word of caution about the Logo head, it’s lovely, but don’t wear it to a crowded sim, any type of lag detection will flag you with it on. All my best to you!
I did not test the heads to see what the ARC of each was – I knew they would be ridiculously high. 😛 And I wouldn’t wear it to anyplace busy – I don’t even wear my mesh body to busy places. 🙂 Cute pics!
Thank you Kat! Hugs!
LOL. I have tons of outfit folders too but when I put one on, damn those slink hands match the last outfit I had on. At one point I had three copies of slink hands in different folders matched to the three skins I wore with links to the different folders. I gave up and just wear one skin now so my slink hands and feet always match.
Of course if I wear an older outfit ( I have a some longtime faves) with Slink appendages I get sent update versions which do not have the version in the name which annoys me intensely. Same with Glamistry shoes. Put on an older outfit and the shoe hud won’t work but sends you a new pair of shoes, again with exactly the same name as the original. I need to get in there and delete all the old outfits and remake them again with new slink hands and feet and also any with Glamistry shoes. Sighs. There are much more fun things to do with my SL time!
Yeah, I went through that a month or so ago with slink. I didn’t know Glamistry did that, darn it. I LOVE those shoes! I did the same thing with my skins and slink hands/feet too. And then if I throw a mesh head into the mix, my real head may explode, lol. We may not have looked as good with system clothes, but everything fit and getting dressed was a lot easier!!
Well hi always use a mesh body+hands and feet, = Kl perky body and My arc is always less then 17000. And also on crowded sims mesh takes always less time to rezz then sculpted hair, but i removed all the scripts from my mesh attachments, so i have diff folders, each with a shape, mesh body and physics layer adjusted for the mesh clothes i use for each outfit and the clothes as well.
On mesh heads im still waiting for improvements before i start to think in getting one.
I just did some ARC testing today and one head was over 90K ARC. Ouch! So that would definitely limit its use to photographs only. 😦
