Flower Power

Astralia and LODE have gone all Plastic Fantastic for this months special birthday round of Collabor88!
Astralia have released a new bodysuit and legwarmers set called 'Flowers Within', with a HUD including 10 various bright and summery colours. Both items in this set also include optional add-on 3D flowers that can be worn beneath the semi-sheer bodysuit and leggings. The HUD also allows you to change petal colour for some great mix and match options!

LODE have released the 'Plastic Fantastic' wreath in 6 versions, each including contrasting bold colours for just 88L each or 288L for the fatpack!

Love the new hair by [RunAway] at Enchantment! Designed to fit with the Arabian 1001 Nights theme, this braided style comes with a styling HUD that allows the braid to be worn over either shoulder or down your back. It also has an optional chain accessory with it (not shown) that can be toggled on/off via the HUD.

Carol G's new 'Essence' tattoo is definitely my new fave! This can be found in 3 colours at Enchantment, each with 4 opacity settings.
**edit** I didn't notice until way too late - for some reason the tattoo/glove layer got switched off my hands - may bad >.< Check out the full tattoo in black in my previous post here!

Changing Faces - Bianca

'Bianca' is one of the 4 new bento mesh heads released by Lelutka today. It took me a little time to find a shape I'm happy with for her but... here she is!

Bianca

I'm also wearing the 'Bianca' skin applier by Glam Affair, which can be purchased separately at Lelutka mainstore (although the skin that comes with the head is lovely too!). The applier is available in 10 tones and each includes a selection of optional makeups. 

A new round of Collabor88 is open and Stealthic has released his new style for the event!
I always love how stealthic styles include a natural looking base, so no hair base is required with the style and the texture for this one is really awesome. There is a style HUD included so you can decide if you prefer either side to fall forward over the shoulder or if you prefer it pushed back.

Changing Faces - Spencer

Lelutka have released 4 brand new bento mesh heads today - Spencer, May, Greer & Bianca! 
Spencer is supercute and quirky, and imo quite different than any of Lelutka's other releases! 

Spencer

Glam Affair have also released 4 new skin appliers at Lelutka store in line with the new heads. The 4 appliers, named after each of the heads they were optimally created for, can be purchased separately and come in 10 skin tones and include 7 brow colours plus no brow option, 8 make ups and 8 lipstcks.
I'm wearing the Spencer applier with the Spencer head in this pic and I love how detailed she is.

LODE is partaking in the current round of Uber with this lovely fruit and flower headpiece called 'Requiem'. There are  6 colours to choose from and a fatpack option, plus its a perfect chance to snag a LODE beauty for anyone that's not a gacha fan!!

Changing Faces - May

Lelutka has lots of newness heading your way very, very soon!!
There are 4, yes I said FOUR, brand new bento mesh heads soon to be released. In addition, there is an update by Lelutka to 3.0 on the new and existing bento heads. More info below!

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to 'May'...

May

How cute is she?!

May, along with the 3 other new heads to be released by Lelutka, come with all the features you are used to with your Lelutka Bento heads. Plus lots of updates. 
There are lots more mood options now available, which also come with head movement and blinking baked into the individual moods for added realism. Of course, if you prefer not to have the head movement, you do have the option to switch this off, and you can also have the standard blinking animation as in previous versions. 
You can choose to have multiple moods selected and this will cause the head to cycle through those that are activated. 

There are 5 new talk animations, including a singing animation. 
There are also 4 mouth poses now, separate from the facial expressions - 3 x parted lips, open mouth and chew animation. 
The HUD includes choices of texture for inside the mouth and an option to show/hide the tongue.

The Omega plug-in has been updated too. It will now accept new Omega eyelash appliers and any older appliers targeting the 'HTatt' layer will now pop up with a dialog box asking which layer you would prefer to apply to. Also, Omega eye appliers will now offer the options of adding to the left or right eye individually, or both eyes, providing much more flexibility with makeups!

The 3.0 updates will also be applied to Simone, Chloe and Cate bento heads.

The video below just shows some examples of moods, in addition to the mouth pose options and updated HUD menu.
