Akeruka Advanced #W08 | The Mesh Directory

Important Note: This listing is for an older product line. Akeruka has a newer line out called ADVX. This older line may no longer be updated and third party support for it has slowed. If I list the ADVX heads on the Directory in the future I’ll make sure to leave a link here for your convenience.

This is an overview of the Akeruka Advanced #W08 mesh head for Second Life avatars. Almost all the information also applies to other Akeruka Advanced heads, however the photos are only of #W08, and the list is what comes with #W08. Other heads may have slightly different content. As always I strongly encourage you to demo before making any final purchasesTo browse other mesh heads, bodies, and more check out The Mesh Directory.

#W08 doesn’t come with a skin. It’s shown here with Blondie by The Skinnery (made for Catwa HDPro)

Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons

Other things of note to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.


  • Akeruka heads are easy to use, and the newest version of the HUD is similar to those of familiar brands such as LeLUTKA.
  • Since it’s mainly a BOM head, you can use skins made for other brands and see if they fit. Lelutka Evo Classic skins (NOT EvoX) fit, as well as SLUV skins. The skin used for this post is actually made for a Catwa head.

Neutral Notes

  • The Advanced line is not the most up to date heads from Akeruka. The latest Advanced head came out at the start of 2022. A month later the ADVX line was introduced. If you want to use Lelutka EvoX skins on an Akeruka head you’ll want to get an ADVX head instead, not an Advanced head.
  • The expression section of the HUD includes a variety of facial animations. You can also pause these to use them as static expressions (helpful for photos!)


  • This is likely a discontinued line. Don’t expect any updates.
  • Advanced W#08 and later do not come with any skins, however the Advanced heads that came out before W#08 do come with skins made specifically for them.
  • It can be a bit tricky to find BOM skins specifically for W08.
