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.

Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons

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

Pros

  • As the Era2 heads support EvoX products it already has a wide variety of skins, makeups, tattoos, and more that work with it.
  • The HUD includes a section for static face posing. This lets you adjust individual facial bones in the mouth and eyebrows for photographs or custom expressions.

Neutral Notes

  • Elle has three heads, one for each texture map. One head is for EvoX, one for the standard SLUV, and one for LAQ’s new SupremeUHD mapping.

Cons

  • When playing with the head I ran into some issues with getting the ears to show up properly again after hiding them. They were a bit finicky and showed the wrong textures until I unpacked a new head. That was within the first day of release and has been reported, hopefully it gets fixed soon!
