This is an overview of the LeLutka River mesh head for Second Life avatars. Almost all the information also applies to the other LeLutka Evolution heads, however the photos are only of River, and the list is what comes with River. Other heads may have slightly different content. For the older line of LeLutka heads check out the Origins Line. For more mesh heads and bodies head on over to The Mesh Directory.

Pros and Cons
Other pros and cons to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.
- The Evolution Line from LeLutka are their newest products and designed entirely around BOM.
- LeLutka is a popular designer, so there is widespread support for their heads.
- River is designed to be non binary and can be used for feminine, masculine, and androgynous looks.
- The HD makeup allows for materials and high quality makeup appliers to be used even when using BOM skins.
- The facial animations are great quality and multiple moods can be toggled at the same time.
- Being BOM focused you can’t use all applier products on them. Tattoos, hair bases, etc cannot be used unless they are BOM.
- A lot of the static facial expressions are unnatural looking. There are a few really nice ones, but many are very exaggerated.
- While this head is a non binary one, the neck only fits Lelutka compatible female bodies, not men’s bodies. It would be nice to see it compatible with both in the future.
