LOTD #537

One of CATWA's latest releases is the elegant Helena mesh head.
There is an add-on animations fatpack available for this head,
which is always a benefit to me as you are given more control and options.
After purchase, just add the Add-On Fatpack HUD 
along with the Animations HUD
and select the Add-On Fatpack HUD to activate it.  
It will release all that's greyed out and make it available.

The video below shows the Main and Animations HUDs.
Don't forget to utilize the blending options for the makeup!

During the Animations portion,
you can see that you can control the Talk AO,
which allows your avatar's mouth to move while typing in local.
As for the Eye AO, I don't use this feature much 
but like that it's available for when I am not in a photo-taking mode.
While taking photos, I general stay static and use another useful HUD to control eye-direction.
(It's FREE in the marketplace: AnyPose Expression HUD)

For the Helena mesh head, I'm using ESSENCES skin applier 
and absolutely love how they compliment one another.  It is a perfect pairing!
I'm wearing Chel hair from Little Bones that I got as a group gift!
It's so pretty and comes with a variety color HUD.
Also featured in this post are two new releases from Apple May Designs
for the Tres Chic and Summerfest events
and Façade's Women Only Hunt item.
