Kitten Style 101: Body & Head Stores

Mesh Body:
I only comment on several popular brands below, for a more up to date list of female and male mesh body creators visit the MBA site; click here
Altamura: [I do own the Sophia body which I picked up when on sale. Something to note if you do go down this path is that often Maitreya fitted clothing works fine on Altamura bodies, just make sure you try the demos. At this stage I haven't really spent much time playing with it. I hope to have time in 2018 to at least look at using it as an alternative to Maitreya. I also have Jenny Bento Full body WOH Gift , its worth getting this gift since owners will get a surprise when the full Jenny body is released in Jan 2018]

[Males: Worth checking out, however based on the fact that clothing is so hard for guys as it is. Its possibly easier to stick with one of the more popular bodies]

Belleza: - [Females: If I had gone down this path I would have acquired Isis or Freya over Venus. In my opinion the Belleza Universal HuD is by far the best body HuD around]

[Males: Add the Jake body to your short list to Demo. I did demo this for a friend with GA.EG Demon and Even Bento head using various different skins and all combos worked well]

Maitreya - Is my #1 recommendation cause this is what I use as my main body.
  1. Tends to be the most widely support body by designers
  2. Found there are also a lot of designers who fall into the "only for Maitreya" category
  3. Great option if you have or plan to get a Lelutka mesh head since both use Glam Affair skin tones built in removing the need to purchase 3rd party skins if you want.
  4. Tends to rez quicker than other bodies.
  5. HuD is relatively simple to use and easy to read when using a laptop.
  6. Autohide Tool Kit for automatic toggling of alphas is a must have.
    Signature: [Females: Did not like the body shape at all so I really didn't demo it to make any comment.]

    [Males: Add the Gianni body to your short list to Demo. Although I personally think Belleza is by far a better overall package. The decision may come down to the simple fact of going with this body cause it is popular and there is a lot of fitted clothing for it. I demoed it with the same GA.EG and LeLutka heads I used when demoing the Belleza body]

    Slink: [Females: I was not impressed at the time I was picking a body for myself. I will say the new HuD is a huge improvement over its successor however by the time you add hands and feet you do get a sense of why all the HuD's and not a single HuD. Also, Slinks implementation of the alpha autohide functionality is the easiest of all bodies to use]

    [Males: Worth demoing, but I think Belleza or Signature will ultimately be more popular and therefore have a larger selection of fitted clothing. Same issue here when you add hands and feet as with the female body]

    Niramyth: [Males only: I call it the "Steroid Junkie Body". It can look good if work is put into it, unfortunately most males don't spend the time to make it look good, hence the nickname. The only other comment I can make on this body is don't buy it if Omega skin compatibility is a key factor].
      Bento Mesh Head:
      I only comment on several popular brands below, for a more up to date list of female and male bento mesh head creators visit the MBA site; click here

      AK: [I do own Lulu which I got for the cost of joining the group and the purchasing for $1L when it came out. I do plan to play with this head in 2018]
        Altamura: [I do own the Aggie Bento head which I picked up when on sale. At this stage I haven't really spent much time playing with it. I hope to have time in 2018 to at least look at using it as an alternative to my other heads. I also picked up the Giselle head at eBento Dec 2017 when it was on sale for $1L. In addition I do have Mia full body/head combo and the WOH4 gift Jenny which is a limited preview for when the full version is released in Jan 2018]

        Catwa: [I did like Catya however the overall package just did not impress me. The HuD UI to me is what lets these heads down. Its also hard to visualise the heads when the demos have all those alpha segments]

        Fiore: [I did love the look and I did keep going back and forth for some time. In the end it just didn't hit that sweet spot. I do intend to review again in 2018 and may purchase one cause they do offer way better Asian and European features than other vendors]

        GA.EG: - Is my #1 recommendation cause this is what I use as my main head. I own both Barbara and Mia.
        1. They have a more defined feature of facial beauty, I feel they look more natural
        2. Customisation of head shape and features is excellent allowing for individuality
        3. HuD designs are excellent, easy to read when using a laptop.
        4. Addon packs can easily be added or removed from the Smart and Animation HuD's
        5. Cheaper initial buy cost is over 2K less than others
        Only down side with GA.EG is finding skin appliers, I have spent considerable time locating skins and will continue to do so. For more info read the skin section in the Kitten Style 101: Skins, Cosmetics, Nails & Tattoos page.

        [Males: Personally I think the Damon and Evan Bento heads are two of best male bento heads available and they both work really well with Belleza & Signature bodies]

        Genesis Lab: [Issue here for me was it didnt tick my Omega requirement box. On the upside there are plenty of appliers out there for Genesis so it is worth looking at this cause they are nice heads]

        LAQ: [I certainly count these equal alongside GA.EG as my favourites. Easy to use with seamless built in Omega support.]

        Lelutka: [I have one of these bento heads for my ALT cause I was interested in helping others out and its such an easy option if you own a Maitreya body since both body and head use Glam Affair skin tones built into the HuDs. In other words for my ALT it was a really cheap and simple upgrade path]

        [Males: Can't go wrong with the Andrea bento head as it works really well with Belleza & Signature bodies].

        Signature: [I really got the feeling both the female and male heads are an after thought. Still if you go down the Signature body path it is a one stop seamless option]
