It took me quite literally hours and hours to open my Christmas gifts in SecondLife – yes, I was thoroughly spoilt ! I will endeavour to share as much as I can with you over the next few days. Above are jeans specifically made for the SLink Physique mesh body. High waist style, but they do sell other variants. I popped over to the store and noticed they sell versions of these pants for other mesh bodies also ! Naturally I had to treat myself to the matching mesh jacket, you can wear it with or without the sweet tube top and both have massive amounts of colour choice on a handy dandy hud. These are by Absolut Vendetta, which appears to be part of the Vista brand – I had NO idea Vista made clothing! My boots are from a store I haven’t been to for agesss, Opium. The interesting thing about the boots is the colour packs. You choose one range and the Hud gives you a glorious amount of colours within the range you’ve selected – great value! My range was brown to red, but as you can see it includes a LOT of colours in between.
Onto a gift that came through a few days ago from Beautiful Dirty Rich – gawd its an enormous package ! You get all three outfits above, plus appliers for most of the mesh bodies on the market at the moment. Group join has always been free so I believe it still is.
My favourite of the lot is the leopard print sweater, super classy in the gray and white option no? Ohhhhh my shoes are by whatever, and are an absolute steal at 69L ! I thought Id bought a black pair, so was pleasantly surprised to find upon opening the box, I had actually got four different pairs from white to black, blimey. These are available at The Dressing Room Fusion event that ends on 1st January.
Ohhh look its me inside our gorgeous newwww home ! Its going to take weeks, maybe even months to set it all up – so we are currently living in our little apartment. This is the group gift complete outfit in the BDR package. The appliers are plentiful and Cameron has designed a new all-in-one HUD yay! Actually I was reading her blog and saw what she wrote about her group gift policy – which was really lovely, I hope you don’t mind me repeating it here:
“I get asked often about old group gifts, even once someone asked me why there isn’t a “join group fee” due to the quality of the gifts (*blushes*), I appreciate it tho, but no, the point of a gift is that it’s free, that you can get some nice stuff without paying ;D (who doesn’t like that?)
Before creating *B.D.R.*, I used to help girls with advices and stuff about SL, most likely new residents and from my own experience I know how hard it is to start here and specially without buying L$. Unfortunately after creating *B.D.R.* it was pretty much impossible for me to keep helping new girls, since then group gifts have been the best way for me to do it, this is why I put so much effort with gifts, because I want you to have something nice and I’m glad to help, specially new girls, so if I start charging for a fee, those girls wouldn’t be able to pay for it, which is not what I had in mind from the beginning.
Sooooooooooooo after thinking about it for a while I decided that I’m not going charge for a group fee, however, group gifts released from 2015 are not going to be fully exclusive anymore (which has been the policy since 2009). Group gifts are still going to be an exclusive color from a new outfit/release or it can be a fully exclusive outfit/design, but the gift is not going to be removed anymore.
Short words, once I change the gift for a new one, the old gift is going to remain at the store and available for new group members to grab it.”
