This is Lara Hurley’s first contribution to the LeLutka mesh head market. Alena is shown here in the Milky tone (the lightest available).


I think Alena is absolutely beautiful. Shown here on my Lotte head, the pack comes in your chosen tone with an applier for all 6 available mesh heads. There are 4 eyebrow options for each type of applier – clean face, freckles and mole options. There are also 5 lipsticks and 4 eye makeups on each HUD.


My only issue comes in with the Maitreya Lara body appliers, as there is a noticeable color difference for me on the neck (neck fix on). The appliers come for every tone but they’re not labeled and there are several types of skins to match – so it’s unclear which is recommended for the Alena appliers specifically even though one of the appliers is marked “this will work with all the new skins.” Incidentally, the rest of the body matches flawlessly. It could just be I am using the wrong applier or my shadows are wonky. YMMV!


I am wearing a sleek new dress from OVH here. They do amazing texturing and I greatly appreciate a more body conscious, mature style.

    Ohhh, I must admit Lotte looks really pretty. My favorite is Stella. 🙂
    I think you are wearing the correct appliers but the pictures aren’t so big so I cannot see the “neck issue”. The skins for the default avatar have this neck shading that looks a bit different on LeLutka’s heads but I tried to make it look almost seamless. I don’t know which windlight settings you’re using but this is my result: (milky tone).
    Hope that helps :D. If you’re curious about my (boring) settings send me a message in world.

      lara – I have to tell you these are some of my favorite appliers. The neck issue is very likely my own settings, which I run with very high shadow detail since I do not post process. Can’t wait for more from you!

    I have been a Lara Hurley User since 2012 and i tried the new Skins Heidi and Elea with Lara Hurley Applier for Maitreya but they doesn’t match right with the neck fix 🙁

      Hi Balbera, I found that messing with my shadows really helped. I think I was using very stark lighting. You might give that a try!
