Project Bento is an extension to the standard Second Life avatar which makes it possible to customize your mesh heads, similar to shaping your standard Second Life facial features in the past. You can read more about Bento in this short forum post by Linden Lab.
Before purchasing your first Bento head, please consider the following:
Project Bento is currently still in its beta testing phase, meaning that there will be bugs and glitches. Creators will do their absolute best to fix any bugs on their side. However, please remember that they will be unable to fix Second Life bugs.
