Bento Mesh Head Reviews are up!

Hi Maddicts!

As promised, I have been working away in the background to get some mesh head reviews done for you all! I’m trialling a new way of doing the reviews this time, by including some summary information on the page, as well as a video outlining the head, hud and its features. Let me know what you think!

To check out the reviews, you can click the links below to see them, and you can see the Bento Mesh Head list and reviews as they are added by going to the top menu bar under Mesh Head Reviews, and clicking on ‘Bento Mesh Heads’ for the list, or any of the mesh head names to see the review!

  1. Ah I noticed the bento head spot last night and did lots of research. Finally settled on the Simone head. Awesome work Daria.

  2. Hi Daria

    It would be great if Maitreya would sell a mesh bento head fitting to the Lara Body. Did you hear anything about this?


  3. I found it so hard to choose between Catya and Simone, but your reviews helped so much! I love how thorough you are, covering all aspects of the avatar when applicable. I’d been also toying with Slink vs Maitreya for the body, and thanks to your thoroughness I knew to select the Lara body with the Simone head. Love it!

  4. Hi Daria

    Please tell us as soon the bento head from Lelutka compatible with the Maytreya body is ready. I’d love to use it. ?

  5. Thanks Daria.

    Could you tell me the name of the mesh head that goes with maytrella mesh body? I’m in the store but I couldn’t find it… well, the true is that I always choose the wrong one 🙁

    • Any head should work well with it Diana. If you’re looking to save a bit of money on skins, maitreya comes standard with glam affair, as does Lelukta simone. But it’s easy to find a skin with matching appliers for any of them and they all fit well.

  6. Hi Daria, great reviews thank you. I’m starting to see shape creators tag their shapes as “bento only” or the shape might only be compatible with a certain bento head. I’m a little confused and maybe missing something but I thought a shape was a shape was a shape. I understand that there are new “bones” attachment/rigging points, but that is just skeletal structure? Are there actually sliders that I might be missing since I’m using a self created shape from pre-bento era? Are these shape designers just trying to capitalize on the newness of bento or is there really actually something different in the way the shape works and we need new shapes for our avi’s to utilize bento to the fullest? Sorry if this isn’t the place for this.

    • Hey Renni! I know it’s confusing – basically the new ‘bones’ that we see affecting the mesh heads is still different to the system that adjusts the system head, even though they both use the same sliders. It also depends a lot on what mesh head the shape is for, because each mesh head deforms differently with sliders (just to make it nice and easy!) so a shape just for ‘bento’ isn’t really possible, however a shape for say ‘Catwa Catya’ is.

      Personally, I say just put your old shape on and tweak the head until it looks close to what you had 🙂

  7. Hi Daria

    The Lelutka Bento mesh head that is compatible with the Lara Maitreya shape is Simone? Please tell me. I went to the store but I spent a lot of time and I couldn’t find anyone that crearly said: “for lara shape”
    I think that things are getting confused in this “mesh-sliders-bento” age of Second Life. Am I the only one who think that way?

    • Hey Diana, I know it’s confusing don’t worry. Almost any mesh head works with Maitreya, but if you’re wanting Lelutka, Simone (the 5k head) is the bento mesh head. It’s not specifically for Lara, because the head will work with most shapes, but both Maitreya and Lelutka come with Glam Affair skins built in, so they work well together.

      In the end, you can get just about any mesh head you like to work with Lara 🙂

  8. Hey, thanks for the amazing blog! I have Lelutka “Even” mesh head model, i know the bento one is Simone, do you think they plan to make a bento version of all their models? like a “Even 2.0” or will be just Simone?

  9. Hi Hi..I am so confused! I cannot decide to get either Catwa (which I have a few heads from) and Lelukta Simone 🙂 I see you and other ppl work those heads and loving it.Simone head is so beautiful but when i look at the pros and cons..Catwa wins..I feel i should stick with the evil I know..that is Catwa but then again here is Simone head ..sigh..
    I see some shapes out there that are done beautifully but the price!..oooh weee! They killing me..You buy a head for 5k and the shape designers are asking for a arm and a leg..(Im no good with the slider so I am )…

  10. I currently use the Lelutka Stella head

    I spent a lot of time trying to get the Bento Simone head to “work” for me shape wise. But the Lip variation just isn’t there. I would much rather start with a Bento Stella head.

    Add the fact that I do not get a discount going from Stella to Bento Simone but I would have going from Simone to Bento Simone and I kind of sour on the whole thing. The Stella cost me just as much as the Simone would have and I bought it from the same supplier.

    Ideally I would like a Stella Bento but evidently that is not going to happen. Which is disappointing. Kind of leaves me waiting for someone else to come up with something that I will use instead.

  11. Thank you very much for the reviews on each of them and including information on whether they are mod or not. I see that they are all no mod, unfortunately, so I’ll just have to keep waiting for now. But you saved me a ton of time by consolidating that info easily for me, so I really appreciate it. ^_^

  12. Hi Daria,
    first of all, sorry for my bad english. I have the Maitreya Lara Body using it with a Lelutka Karin Mesh Head and League Skin applier, used the league skin for years and love it, now i bought the Simone Bento Head Demo, can’t get the Head-Neck area fixed, which was perfect before with the Karin Head. i found out neck size- body fat at 24 what my shape is dont work how it should be, and couldn’t find a neck size option in the bento head hud. little bit confused about this, but i like the overall look of the bento head.
