“Oh written in the stars
a million miles away
A message to the main…“
“Written In The Stars” – Tinie Tempah (Feat. Eric Turner) ♫Listen♫
A few days ago one of the most anticipated male mesh releases hit the ground running. I’m talking about the “ANDREA” bento mesh head by LeLutka. Now I know that a lot of people are familiar with the name from their many different female heads over time but now us fellas have one of our own and I picked one up to see if the hype was worth all the waiting.
I’ll be getting to that in just a moment.
Upon it’s release, Andreas already had three different skins to choose from within the LeLutka store. Two of which were from Tableau Vivant and another from Clef de Peau. It did not take long for other major skin creators to follow suit with 3 different skins from Stray Dog and just recently 4 from Modulus’ “M-Bare” division. So for those of you who are uncertain about taking a look into it for lack of choices, I’m afraid that argument won’t hold water.
I’ll talk a little more about this product below in the credits.
Featured sponsors in this post include Avi-Glam which has a new eye release currently at Shiny Shabby as well as Image Essentials which has a new hand gesture that is a main store new release item. Also included are CULT and Pacagaia (which are new brands to me) as well as another hair from the Stealthic brand.
While I was coming up with my outfit I was also scouring around social media for a place to set the scene because I wasn’t feeling up to using one of the backdrops I have other plans for. This lead me to the Mother Road / Route 66 sim. This gorgeous stretch of roadway has various different things on both sides to explore and capture a moment in. You can find a taxi down below in the credits to go check it out for yourself.
It’s about that time that I leave you to check out the credits and my little notes/ramblings about the items and hope that they might help you give consideration to any of the items featured here within. Please also consider getting demo’s for the items so that you won’t be out of any money should they not work for you as you intend. Thank you for coming along with me on this little adventure and I’ll catch you all next time out.
⊰HAIR⊱ Stealthic – Hysteria
This side swept hair comes with a styling HUD to give you several different options as to how nice or messy your hair appears. It also has several color packs to choose from as well so that you can match just about any eyebrow/beard color combination you could think of and have it to your liking.
⊰HEAD⊱ LeLutka – Andrea ♯ NEW
I really feel like I cannot say enough good things about this product. I always was a bit jealous of the gals after seeing the HUDs these heads come with and the amount of interaction and features that are jammed into them. Right out of the box you get animations (expressions and moods) some which are static and some that are looped. As well as options for having braces and fangs (if you happen to be a role-player that has a demon or vampire character). I’m not sure I could even remember everything that the included HUD has because there’s so much. It does come pre-loaded with 10 skin tones by Tableau Vivant themselves who also now have Belleza body appliers for sale right inside the LeLutka store. The bento male head game has just elevated and the stakes are becoming higher which only us fellas can benefit from!
I also have to note that the head is Omega compatible but you must purchase the LeLutka Omega Installer from LoveNLust for any Omega compatible eye or skin appliers to work properly.
⊰EYES⊱ AG. Charm Eyes – Fatpack @ Shiny Shabby ♯ NEW
Sometimes people choose to have different eye colors for different moods or just decide that they want a change of pace. Avi-Glam likely has at least one iris color from their Charm Eyes release that is sure to capture their attention. 30 different colors available with included HUDs for CATWA, OMEGA (which I used with the included LeLutka eyes from the Andrea package) and for the mesh eyeballs that are included. You can also choose the size of pupil (small, medium, or large) as well as which eye you would like to color for those who might want to mix and match (as it is getting closer to Halloween).
⊰FACE⊱ ~Tableau Vivant~ – Andrea 003 @ LeLutka ♯ NEW
This handsome gentleman is going to take the world by storm. This new applier has features in and of itself from several color eyebrow options (no brows is one also) and also freckles, warpaint, and guyliner for the goth or rocker crowd. I’m highly impressed with the initial work from Tableau Vivant for the LeLutka bento head as I feel they must have taken a lot of time and effort to get this first release just right.
⊰BODY⊱ Belleza – Jake
⊰SHIRT⊱ BlankLIne V-NeckT [Gray] @ TMD ♯ NEW
Who could forget my massive shopping trip to The Men’s Department this month. I have to confess this was not one of my initial purchases in my first trip there but I did find it appealing and went back for it once I knew I had something that would match up with it well. This shirt comes in sizes for Belleza, Signature, and TMP male bodies.
⊰SHORTS⊱ :PC: Tulio Shorts ♯ Marketplace
I came across these shorts while browsing Flickr and I knew a little of the brand but not much else. The ad led me to the item on the marketplace which I then thought I’d like to use for the scene you saw above. Sizes available for this product consist of Adam, Aesthetic (two versions), Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP male bodies. An included HUD gives you the ability to change the denim color, the belt color, and the color of the boxers.
⊰BOOTS⊱ : CULT : Hipster Male Boot @ Hipster Men’s Event ♯ NEW
Personally I do not know a lot about this brand but after finding these boots and seeing some advertisements for other items that are also in other mainstream events going on right now, this is one to keep an eye on. I really like the look to these boots, they have the feel of combat boots with a little something extra. There is are 4 different shoe and sole colors to choose from which can be changed via the included HUD for many different combinations. Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, and SLink Physique male body owners will be able to easily wear these.

IE – Counting Hands HUD ♯ NEW
If you’ve ever wanted to have your avatar pose with your hands counting down to something or just to signify a number then you’ll want to check out the Image Essentials “Counting Hands” HUD. This product will only effect the hands so you’ll have to use it with another pose of your choosing; the poses will also only work as long as you have the HUD attached for they will reset back to whatever they were defaulted to if the HUD is removed.
