Well boys, it’s time to get those skates on and leg it to the Akeruka store, because your free anniversary Bento mesh head gift has just been released, and it’s absolutely gorgeous!
This offer will only be open until 1st July 2018, so hurry up and grab it!
The Akeruka group costs L$150 to join (link here) and you need to be in the group and with your group tag active in order to get the head. Go to the Akeruka store (be warned: it’s going to be busy and laggy!) and cam inside the male heads section of the store. Just inside the entry you’ll see three big images on the wall. You want the one in the middle. It looks like this:
Right-click either the main image or one of the two small boxes beneath it, and pay it L$1. You will be refunded that money immediately and then you’ll be sent your free Bento mesh head! (The two small boxes are additional servers, which the store has put out so the main server doesn’t get overwhelmed. Only pay the server ONCE and then wait.)
This is a fantastic gift from Akeruka. The guys in SL get short shrift when it comes to finding cheap and free items, and Bento heads are no exception. The average Bento head costs around L$5000, so you’re getting an awesome bargain here.
And you don’t get just the head! Inside the folder you’ll find a plethora of things, from all the various customisation and animation HUDs (screenshots of those will be further down this post) to a fantastic pack of ALL the matching body appliers in Omega format, for Signature, Slink, and Belleza bodies – in both shaved and hairy versions. (And, since they’re Omega, they might work on other Omega-compatible bodies. I think the only reason they’re called ‘Omega – Signature’ etc is because the mapping of the bodies is slightly different, and so things like nipples and muscles may not be 100% in the right place on other bodies. Give them a try on your mesh body, though, and see which one – if any – works!)
The HUDs come with lots of extra options, including brows and hairbases, facial hair, and eyes (both human and catlike/animal). You even get guyliner and lipstick (so you can get your goth on!) and facial scars and tattoos. Some screenshots of the HUDs are below:
Mar’s male look for this post comes courtesy of Caligula and Polo Paul. While the Caligula items are a bit out of the usual L$75 remit for most clothing etc on this blog, they’re well worth it when you see the sheer amount of options available!
The jacket costs L$99 and comes in fits for Adam, Signature, Aesthetic, Slink, plus two fitmesh options and standard sizing (which can be worn with non-mesh bodies). Inside each pack – once you’ve opened the one you want, you’ll find the jacket with turtleneck comes in 12 colour options! The boots are also L$99 and come in fits for Adam, Signature, Aesthetic, Slink, TMP, and standard avatars. (They’re also all re-sizeable with a single click.) Once you’ve opened your shoes size of choice you’ll find 12 colours, each with two versions (one with tiny studs around the sole seam, and one without). And finally, the jeans are from an outfit by Polo Paul, at L$55, and the hair is a freebie fatpack at the Exile store.
The head also takes other Omega appliers (if you have the Akeruka Omega relay, which is available in the store for L$99). Here it is with the latest male group gift ‘Ake’ head and body Omega applier from 7 Deadly Skins (the group is L$225 to join)
