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.
- The HD makeup allows for materials and high quality makeup appliers to be used even when using BOM skins.
- Two HD eye makeup layers gives you even more quality customization options.
- The facial animations are great quality and multiple moods can be toggled at the same time.
- Being BOM focused means you can’t use all applier products on them. Tattoos, hair bases, etc cannot be used unless they are BOM.
