I’ve already taken a closer look at the Vista Gerard mesh head with it’s original skin on the Belleza jake body and I’ve created a tanned look with the Birth Bennett applier for this head on the Signature body. Today I’m returning to that last combination, but I’m using a lighter tone and I’ve played with the shape to create a sharper face and showcase the versatility of this head and skin.
One of the things I really appreciate about this head is that you can adjust the angle of your ears (in the AO section of the hud) so you can make them stick out. I’m rather partial to that look. It’s not like I ever had a thing for prince Charles, but maybe I’m part Ferengi? I sure do like a good acquisition. If I’ve just lost you at this point, it means you’ve never watched Star Trek Deep Space 9 or Voyager. Your loss! Anyway, back to Gerard. The Birth Bennett skin is fresh enough to create a twink look with it, especially if you forgo facial hair and make your chin more pointy and don’t shy away from full lips, as those too are a sign of youthfulness.
The brows that come with this skin are okay, but I wanted something different to I applied the browless skin and then applied Subtle Brows from Identity. They’re a bit of a pain to apply, because they don’t communicate very well with the head and try to apply themselves to all layers. As a result your hair base will be knocked off and you’ll have to re-apply that after putting the brows on. Ah the pains we put ourselves through to be pretty!
