Sneak Peek: Lia The Vista Bento Head

Featured image above showing off the Vista bento head Lia was made by Vista Animations.

Lia is here! Feel free to keep reading about the preview, but if you want to see more about the head check out Lia: The Vista Bento Head and Vista Lia’s Animations!

Yes, you read that right! Vista Animations is currently beta testing a bento head. Vista is arguably the largest, most popular Animation Overrider (AO) company in Second Life. Their bento hands enjoyed popularity when they were the first to be released on the grid. With plenty of bento heads on the market will Vista’s be as much of a hit? Read on to learn all we know and see the  head in action then let me know what you think!

What We Know

Vista’s Facebook page opened the beta testing for the new head (named Lia) up to 30 lucky users on November 17, 2017. The first public version of Lia will be available Friday. The full price will be L$2500, however invited beta testers get it for half off.

7 Deadly s{K}ins is also a part of this release! Their skin Saga (shown here) is included in the Vista HUD. 7DS’s November group gift Chantal (skin & shape) came with the following information via notecard:

“This month’s group gifts come with a little story, A story to soon to tell.”

In addition the shape is called “7 Deadly s[K]ins – VISTA shape Chantal Group” leading me to believe that 7DS VIP members have a free skin/shape for Vista’s new head already! Not a group member? The group is currently L$225 to join and includes skins every month. Next month the group price is increasing as there is an advent event planned with tons of free skins for group members. If you want to join the time is now.

Additional HUD skins come from YS&YS and Avenge.

Perks Of A Vista Bento Head

The most obvious perk is that the head should work flawlessly with Vista’s AOs. Yes, that means the vista bento head will have full facial expressions to match the body language you’re already displaying.

Beta Reviews

Reviews from Vista’s Review section on Facebook.

“I was lucky enough to get into the beta group for the Lia Bento Head. Can I just say that it’s a stunning head. The HUD is so easy to use. I love the makeups that are included and I didn’t have to go out and buy a new skin because I already use 7 Deadly Skins – which is included in the choices for skins. I can’t wait to see how the AO develops also as it makes it so much cleaner using only one for head and body!” – Bramblee Ceawlin-Landmann

“Lia Vista Beta Bento head V 1.b. I am lucky enough to be a tester. Wow this head is amazing!! Everything is in one hud!!! Skin, makeup, eyebrow, AO-Facial expressions. I am still playing with the shape. I cant believe how realistic this head is. Its beyond beautiful once you start shaping. Big thanks to Ys&YS, Avenge and 7 Deadly Skins…Amazing work guys. It also comes with tattoos. Freckles and so much more. I am really enjoying playing with this Amy Ferguson

Will It Be A Hit?

Well it’s far too soon to tell. It seems like they’ve teamed up with some quality designers to offer a quality product right off the bat. I’m looking forward to picking this up and showing it off to you! Are you interested in picking up a Vista bento head? Let me know your questions and concerns and I’ll address them once I have the head to play with.

    • I totally understand! Lelutka’s Simone was my first bento head and I still prefer the base look of it over most heads. I tend to buy various brand heads to play with them and show them off a bit. Vista will likely have a demo so at least it’ll be worth messing with a bit!

      I’m interested to play with this one for sure. I like the look of it but I want to see how responsive it is to the appearance sliders.
