Today I’m gonna get into greater detail about the ‘Alex’ mesh head by LOGO. LOGO is probably the first creator of mesh heads on the grid, even before Slink’s Visage, that I know of. Originally their heads would only work with LOGO skins but their newest ‘Alex’ head has expanded and works with Omega appliers! Alex comes with it’s own skin and make up variations, eyelashes, eyes, tongue and teeth. I’m not going to list every single option or feature or go into detail about the base pack but I will point out some of my favorite features and addons.
As nice and realistic as the eyes that come with Alex are, I’m an avid IKON fan so at first I wasn’t too thrilled about the Alex head until I realized you can actually opt to not wear LOGO’s eyes and instead replace them with your own! You may need to tweak the positioning some but if you’re like me and you’re really attached to the eyes you normally wear then you’ll be happy to know you can still do so!
I don’t even know where to begin with this. When you purchase Alex she comes with an Expression HUD, set 1. This HUD contains 12 presets for facial expressions however, you can actually mix & match different mouths with different eyes. Clicking the middle of say expression button 2 will apply that full expression to your face but if you click just the eyes on say expression 3 and then you click the mouth of expression 6, you’ll be combining the two for an entirely new expression. Now on top of that there’s an additional two expression sets you can purchase separately at the LOGO store, each with yet another 12 presets as well as the mix & match option. That means if you have all 3 HUDs then you’ll have a total of 36 expression presets PLUS all the different combinations you can make between the eyes and the lips going up to a total of.. well, math I can’t even do.
Much like with the eyes, the teeth and tongue on the Alex head are detachable and LOGO sells a set of Vampire Teeth & Tongue that are made specifically for the Alex head and therefore fit perfectly no matter what expression you go with. The Vampire set comes with 2 different styles, close set fangs and wide set fangs.
Thank the pixel Gods! The skins that LOGO provides are beautiful but I personally enjoy mixing things and I do have certain favorite designers who’s skin I’d like to be wearing with my head. This used to be an issue for me when it came to LOGO heads but now that they’ve adapted to the Omega system, my skin options have expanded quite a bit and I’m a much happier customer because of it! At the moment, I own 4 different applier sets for this head but I will list every single skin store I know of that sells LOGO/Omega head applier, a little further down below. Bear in mind, you will need to head to the Omega store or Marketplace to purchase the ‘Omega System Kit – LOGO‘. Once you’ve done that attach all the head parts that are in your ‘LOGO Infinity Alex Hybrid Mesh Avatar – Omega (Default)‘ folder and click the Omega HUD to start ‘injecting’ each part with the script needed for appliers to work. Check your local chat to make sure that the Omega system was applied to each item you’re wearing and if not, do it again. When that’s done, you should be good to go and you’ll never have to do it again. From there on out, you can start using the skin appliers from other stores and get your new look going!
All in all, the Alex head is a dream and probably one of the most elaborate mesh heads on the grid. Between the countless facial expressions, the different teeth styles, the vastly growing skin options thanks to Omega and the 7 different eyelash styles the head comes with.. your options really are pretty limitless. Have a look at the photos I’ve included to get a glimpse at all the possibilities and scroll down further to find out which skins I’ve used and what other stores sell LOGO/Omega compatible skin appliers!

*PPS: If you have any questions regarding LOGO’s Alex head, feel free to leave a comment either here or on Flickr and I’ll try to help you out. I’m by no means an expert or LOGO official but having toyed with the head so much I’ve learned a thing or two that I may not have covered in this post and that could help you.
