This week, the announcement went out that Belleza female mesh bodies finally got Bento hands (i.e. hands with fingers that could be animated). Since I have an alt with a Belleza Freya mesh body, I went over to the Belleza store in-world to get a redelivery of the body. (You could also just wait for an automatic delivery of the update, but I was impatient.) The new version, 5.0, has Bento hands and a bunch of other new features.
So far, the only problem I have had is that the Belleza appliers that came with my Akeruka Lulu Bento mesh head don’t work with the version 5.0 body. But I have picked a Belleza skin tone that matches my Lulu head as best I can, and I hide the slight neck seam with a choker. Hopefully, either Belleza or Akeruka can fix the problem soon!
Here’s a short video of what my alt looks like now:
As you can see, she’s got curves in all the right places, and a body for sin! No, she doesn’t escort, but she does table dance for tips on an adult sim, the only SL avatar I have that actually earns any money instead of spending it! She does quite well most evenings, thank you 🙂
Here’s what she’s wearing:
- Head: Akeruka Lulu Bento head (group gift dollarbie from a special held last year; Akeruka has issued four dollarbie Bento mesh heads—two female, two male—in the past year to members of their group, so it’s well worth joining)
- Body: Belleza Freya mesh body (new version 5.0 Bento)
- Nails: Aleutia Manicure Polish applier (a gift from the Cosmopolitan 5th Anniversary event)
- Hair: Milena Blond hair by MINA (free gift from the recent Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt)
- Lips: SlackGirl NeNe Lips Set 1 (bought at the Akeruka store)
- Choker: Nina Choker by RxK (free from the excellent freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil; this landmark should help direct you to the panel from the landing point)
- Minidress: Red Latex Mini by Daddy’s Choice Designs (free gift from a previous hunt)
- Thong: Addams Freebie Lingerie Panty (group gift)
- Shoes: Cinzia pumps by KC Couture
- And I decided to treat my alt to a brand new Bento animation override, the Esther AO by Vista Animations. It comes in three sizes—for slim, medium, and curvy avatars—and as a bonus, it also comes with a cellphone and a cigarette with their own built-in AOs!
