I can sometimes be bitchy, but I’m not really a bitch. I try to be gentle and kind most of the time. My bitchiness comes out, though, in the face of meanness or downright stupidity. Sometimes it’s best to just lay back and watch the foolishness – it is far more entertaining and much less likely to produce frown lines.
This is the first real view of my take on the shape for the Bento Simone Mesh Head from .LeLutka.. I had the original, so while the discount was nice (wear your Simone 1.5 or 1.6 head when purchasing and receive the full purchase price of the original back), it really was the expressions that sold me. I was a bit worried about the pointed chin, but after playing with sliders for a couple of days, I finally came up with a facial shape that I like. What sealed the deal was the Luna LeLutka Head Applier from *League*. It was a bit of a trip down memory lane trying on skins to find a face that I loved with my shape. With pre-Bento mesh heads, you pretty much knew that any applier you tried would look good, as the shape of the head was going to be incredibly close to the original. With the freedom of customisation allowed by Bento heads, it’s like it’s 2012 again! Luna worked really well with the changes I made and I’m incredibly happy with the final result.
I am featuring two more items from the December round of BishBox – the Bitch necklace from Kibitz and one of my very favourite gifts from this round, the Oregon Boots from Essenz. There seems to be no end to the goodness from this box!
For a splash of colour, I threw on the Izzie corset from Apple May Designs. It is an older release and can be found at the main store. Since it is an applier, it works very well for tucking in or layering. Don’t forget to shop main stores for older gems in the rush to wear everything new on the grid.
That’s just a suggestion, not an order. I’m not really a bitch, you know 😉

Hope you take it as a compliment when I say, you dont look a lot different, I recognize you. Excellent job with the new improved head. And I cant wait to see some more photos with the expressions. I crossed over to flickr to get close-ups 🙂
I do take it as a compliment. For the first day, I didn’t feel comfortable – my eyes were too big and so was my mouth. Now I feel like Peep again, and I’m happy 🙂
Thanks for a really interesting post, Peep! Actually, it’s good to see the matching of a shape with the new Bento heads now – it will make folks actually work for their individuality, and that’s been missing for quite a while 🙂
Yes, I’m very excited about the ability to customise the head again. Although with the wide variety (and often affordability) of appliers for the pre-Bento heads, it was rare to see a cookie-cutter face. Still, it’s great to have the chance to change your look again 🙂
This looks great Peeps. I’ve been playing with the demo head and I’ve not liked my results yet.. though I will probably make the purchase sooner or later..it would be lovely to have something to what I had before mesh heads. Happy New Year!!
I found that I had to be a lot bolder with my slider changes than in the old days. At first, I was a bit tentative (I hate having to adjust my eyes) but when I started to really push the sliders I finally found a shape I was happy with. I may still tweak – there are a couple of things I’m not 100% happy with – but for now, it’s nice to look different!
Happy New Year to you, Alexa 🙂 I hope 2017 is the best year ever!
Happy New Year to you too Peep!!
