Finally I’m smiling.(Dollarbies).

I don’t know what made me happier, finding the Magnum Ice Cream in my freezer that I forgot I had or finally finding something blog-worthy.

These are only available on the Marketplace and yet I know that the “Nerdy Girl” shop is an inworld shop as I’ve had stuff from there before so when I’d logged in to try the outfit out I checked her profile and it looks like the shop was temporarily closed down but she is planning on opening up soon….and yes I’ve forgotten her name lol.

Till then some things have been put in the Marketplace shop and priced at 1Ld!  This hoody has a hud of 10 “sarky” comments and even though I’m not a slogany person I do find them amusing in this case.  There are other hoodies and tops with different slogans, plain or one pack which I’m assuming comes with a non-copy/trans-version as you get a “BFF” option so you and your BFF can wear matching hoodies.

PS.  If you’re wondering why no new Mina as I’m usually wearing a new Mina when using her sim as a backdrop, she is taking a break and hopefully working on new designs because I have to say that I’m missing the thrill of finding a new Mina is out.  Never mind she’s doing what we all should do and that’s taking a break which I am doing tomorrow. So I might log in in the morning because every day I’ve been checking S@bbia for a new Group Gift and every day it’s been a big fat fail and I just know that the one day I don’t log in in the morning is the day she puts a new gift out for us…it’s called “sods law”.

Behind the scenes.(Marketplace ONLY Dollarbies).

When I visit inworld shops I try to remember to also check out their marketplace shop as well because I know that sometimes people like to shop even when they cannot be inworld and in this case it paid off for me.

The Taikou shop has these out as Group Gifts in their inworld shop but the group does costs I think maybe 250Ld (ish) or more but the same inworld Group Gifts are on the Marketplace for 1Ld each.  I think I would have been slightly mad if I’d joined the get the Group Gifts only to find that I could have saved myself a lot of Lindens then again I don’t know what else the Group offers you so you may get a nice discount or gifts sent out directly to group members etc.

These gifts are not for everyone as they’re mainly for people who have a home in SL or in this first case like to use backdrops but since we like to have something of everything on this blog here they are.

This is a backdrop and it’s much bigger than I had expected which means it’s really good for using to take pictures. At the far end you can see some barriers and there is a little entrance there but it’s what’s behind those blue glass squares which I loved most.

LOVE this colour and the lighting of this, you can see the winter trees through the glass cubes.  This simple square room will make for a very interesting backdrop.  There is no doorway into it so you have to rezz a seat and sit on it to get in….dead simple.

The next Dollarbies is a very simply styled furniture pack.

The style, to me, is very Danish Modern in its simplicity and yet that’s not really true as look at the shadows, even the slats are shadowed.

You get these 3 matching pieces and a 4th one which although very similar didn’t have the slats feature and I couldn’t squeeze it in.  If I remember correctly I’m pretty sure each piece was just 1 or 2prims!  I almost forgot you can also change the colour of the slates, I think there are about 5 shades to chose from.

That’s me hiding in the background lol. When I packed up my land house I left the brickwork and just slapped down a concrete base so this is now my new workspace, over the wall is where my beach is and just in the distance is my horse running around…it’s my little spot of heaven lol.

This bike shed comes either in bits or in this case linked and still only 8prims in full.  I have a LOT of bikes in SL so I’m wondering if I have any spare prims to put them on show on this stand thing.

There are a total of 6 Dollarbies in the Taikou MP shop and I got all of them and all of them are excellent.

Literally! (Freebie(s)).

Finally, after a morning of hunting for something new I’ve found blog-worthy freebies and then I had to “literally” log out of SL but luckily I’d “literally” just had enough time to take one picture of one of the freebies.

Super sexy dress in plenty of fits, great colour and texture but if this isn’t to your taste make sure to still pop over as there are I believe 6 gifts in total and I did quickly try on the off the shoulder dress, with shoes, and the bodysuit and each one was worth a post on it’s own but in the end I went for this one.

2 Styles 1 Price.(10Ld Shoes & Mention of Dollarbies & Bargains).

Just as I was about to throw in the towel and go do some RL housework I finally found my score for the day but don’t get as excited over these shoes as I was because SLink only…Boo Ya!

I picked up the 10Ld pack as this one contains 2 styles, plain and buckled and although you can’t see it I am wearing one of each.  If you have SLink feet then there are other packs for the plain style in more colours.

I don’t feel too bad for you because there are other bargain clothing inc Dollarbies and cheapies all for Maitreya fits….which is why I’m just showing you the shoes.

To find these gifts/bargains etc you have to find the curtained-off room towards the back of the shop, just keep on walking, head through the second set of doors and it’s there, trust me once you know what you’re looking for it’s easy to find.

Such a shame.(25Ld old Hunt Prize & Mention of Freebie).

In the back of the Dream Catcher shop are old hunt items which are up for sale and I do believe that the 25Ld price tag for each item is the original hunt price, unless it was 15Lds when the hunt was active.  As always for paid hunts, you have a poster with the prizes and in this case I picked prize no 1 as this style even though it’s for a Maitreya/Legacy fit I knew I’d have no issues wearing it.

The only reason it’s a shame is that the delivered dress is a lot darker than it appears in the poster and sadly, in my opinion, this darkness distracts from the lovely texturing and folds.

I even went into “edit” to see if I could somehow lighten it but it’s not allowed.  So I popped a body light just to let you see the lovely flared skirt and as you walk from sim to sim the different windlight settings do lighten or darken the dress somewhat.  Please don’t let what I’ve said put you off as for 25Lds you get a classy outfit.  For a  Maitreya and I believe it was Legacy bodies only..check the board.

There are other old hunt boards, in the back of the Dream Catcher shop and I’ve shown you one of the outfits previously.

UPDATE: Damn n blast.  So I returned to LM grab and spotted CAKE and since I love everything cakie I clicked on it and it’s a gift of a rather stunning gold bra/top and booty hugging shorts.  Only a Maitreya fit since I was desperate to log out and get COFFEE I just did a quick try on over my jeans and top and even from that brief look I could tell these are quality gifts.

I had a choice.(Freebie).

“I had a choice” and in the end, I decided to show you this skirt with myself completely Alpha’d out rather than wearing it with all the breakthroughs as it’s a Maitreya only fit.

A nice relaxed frill, some shape to the hem and you might just be able to see that you also get panties attached to it.

Picked up from “Blues” and it’s free for all, although you do pay 1Ld and it’s returned to you.

Blues(If the LM takes you to the Loki shop, which I suspect it will do, then go outside and turn to your right.)

Heading off. (Freebie(s)).

This is me preparing to TP to a sunny and warming sim as a suitable backdrop for this bathing suit.

This is me enjoying a sunny and warming sim.

Yeah ok, not the best shot of the freebie but I had fun lol.

I’ve spent the morning checking out old LM’s and gifts etc and ended up at Queenz and Queenz is a shop with clothes designed for “Thick girls” ie the more curvacious SL shapes.  These clothes are well designed to make those curves look sexy and classy and not cartoonish.

There are quite a lot of Freebies on the wall at the bottom of the stairs, shoes, gowns, sporty clothes etc but nothing looks new to me so I picked the one outfit which gave me an excuse to hunt down a beachy sim.  This swimsuit comes with a few colours in the hud.

PS.  Don’t let the idea of the clothes being just for curvy asses as they inc Maitreya, Freya etc
