LOGO is celebrating its 15th anniversary in Second Life, and as part of their festivities, the store is giving away two free Bento, Bakes on Mesh-compatible mesh heads, one for male avatars and one for female avatars. All you have to do is join the LOGO Update Group for free, teleport to their sales platform here, pay the panel one Linden dollar (which is automatically refunded), and the Chase or Chelsea heads are yours!
Here is what the Chase head looks like, with the default body and brow shape, and without any adjustments to the sliders. He’s quite the handsome fellow!
After fiddling around with the body sliders a bit, here is my final result, paired with the dollarbie Classic mesh body by The Meshbody:
The L$299 skin package for Chase comes with five skin tones: blaze (shown), chestnut, copper, pale and umber, and six colours of eyebrows: black, blond, brown (shown), light brown, red, and white. But of course, you can use any Bakes on Mesh/system skins, hair bases, tattoos, etc., so if you are short of Linden dollars, just buy the Chase head for free, and hunt around for free or inexpensive BoM/system skins to use with it.
Here’s what the Chelsea head looks like (again, using the included default body and brow shapes, and without making any changes to the sliders):
The Chelsea head is, like the Chase one, only L$1, and your Linden dollar is automatically refunded. The L$299 skin package for Chelsea includes six skin tones: alabaster, almond, amber (shown), bloom, cocoa and cream, plus eight different colours of eyebrows, eight eyeshadows, and eight lipsticks. Here’s a look at the fully-styled result, utilizing the dollarbie Classic female mesh body by The Meshbody (more details here):
Both the Chase and Chelsea heads comes with a head animation override with natural, neutral movements, a nice little bonus.
Here is the full anniversary announcement from LOGO:
LOGO celebrates their 15 year anniversary with a big event starting on October 23 that will run 15 days until midnight SLT on November 6th. Founder Maximillion Grant and his team will be celebrating with the release of two new heads, Chelsea and Chase (shown here) which will be FREE during the event. These new exclusive heads have been reworked from the ground up to fully support pre-mesh skins and makeup via Bakes on Mesh meaning most of your old skins should fit perfectly. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Of course appliers will still be supported and the customization HUD has received a much needed update as well.
Max has over a dozen talented designers working on unique products for the new heads. These designers include skin designers The Skinnery, Pink Fuel, Lara Hurley, makeup designers Izzie’s and Alaska Metro, shape makers iEvolve, Cree Moi and Wren’s Nest and hair designers Mina and Exile plus more. In addition Meshbody will be having a draw to give away copies of their full Legacy bodies.
Stay tuned for more prizes and giveaways during the event!
Draxtor Despres did a two-minute profile of Maximillion Grant as part of his Fashion Made in SL documentary miniseries:
The Chase and Chelsea heads are only available until midnight Second Life/Pacific Time on November 6th, 2020, so be sure to pick yours up before they’re gone!
UPDATE Oct. 28th, 2020: I forgot to mention that, in order to set up your Chase or Chelsea LOGO head properly, you will have to use two HUDs, a blank Customization HUD, and (if you purchased the separate L$299 skin kit) a Skins and Options Installer HUD, which allows you to copy over all or only the options you want to use on the Customization HUD:
The system is unlike what you might be used to with other brands of mesh heads, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
UPDATE Oct. 30th, 2020: I just wanted to report that I have been experimenting with both the Chelsea and Chase heads with various mesh bodies, and I am getting excellent results. I have found that the skins you get in the L$299 packages still have a few issues along the fingertips near the nails, which can be easily resolved with Sweet’s Free Bakes on Mesh Nail Cover Fix, a tintable tattoo layer you can pick up for free from the SL Marketplace here.
