I hate to say this but you do know that there are only 2 PAY PACKETS between now and Christmas? Most people use an advent calendar as a countdown to Christmas but me and my OH use pay packets LOL.
So here is a great way to save, in SL at least.
This gazebo is a FREEBIE! Top quality and this version with the lights on the roof is only 18 prims which is more than reasonable but if you want less prims then the unlit one is only 10.
These were a surprise and a great one at that.
KEEPERS! (I already have enough Gazebos to fill a market garden so it’s going!). You get 2 versions, the only difference is the coloured bauble on top. The rezzed size is the middle one and it’s only 2 prims I shrank one down and it’s 1 prim and then I made the third one bigger and it remained 2 prims. So you can make them big for statement pieces or shrink em down for table/mantlepiece decor. I should have zoomed in closer, I was having a bad morning, because the detailing esp in the greenery is exc.
There are other gifts appropriately placed under the Christmas tree and they too have a Christmassy theme. You will find all of these at The Builders Box HQ. The Builders Box I do believe is one of those monthly sub-clubs. I LOVE them but not in SL lol. In RL I got a monthly Birchbox delivery and each month I got to “ooh” over Froo Froo. I’ve never really paid much attention to the ones inworld as I just don’t need but this is a wonderful way to pay your money and the excitement you will have as you unpack your goodies/surprises from some of the biggest and best names in SL.
PS I’ve just spotted we still have all that green, got to change that grass when I get inworld.
More news from Neve for a Monday ! This is the “aris” top and “locke” skirt – they both come in an array of colour & pattern combos – something for everyone. I (of course) chose shades of pink to share with you – just because it’s so gorgeous. Now the interesting thing is that you can remove the bolero and wear the top with just the camisole or wear just the bolero. I haven’t tried it yet with other tops – but I reckon it’ll be super useful. The skirt gives you the choice of adding a further ruffle at the bottom, or not – your decision! To be honest it was really a tough move over which pattern to show the skirt in – there are plaids *faints* – available at TLC right now!
I’ve just splurged my last 25Lds only to find I’m gonna have to splurge some more because one of our regular readers has just dropped the bomb that Trompe Loeil is having a blinking 50% SALE! Seriously how’d I miss that…ok I know it’s because I get sent so many notices/notes etc things often slip me by which is why I truly appreciate it when people give me the heads up about something esp when it’s as good as this. Have to say the sim is, of course, PACKED to the rafters and even worse the countdown started yesterday which means today is the LAST day to squeeze in!
So basically as I was chucking stuff out I checked out the NN Marketplace shop to see if this still had this and they do and since my copy has been eaten by my invent I just bought it.
It’s a massive spooky skybox and perfect for those who are planning a Halloween partay, me? I just open my front door and throw some sweets are the trick or treaters and tell them to “bog off” but having said that I do bake Pumpkin pies cos I love em.
Back to the build.
Although these pictures have a frame on them I haven’t edited the pictures and even in my sims Nams setting you can see they’re pretty atmospheric so if you change your windlight settings I think you will get some very interesting effects.
Comes in a rezzer or you can rez it in edit mode and there are a few extra spooky ghosts you can have flying around. For some reason the rezzer wouldn’t derezz it, the rezzer is in the well, but although this is a really big skybox it’s all in big chunks so only took a few clicks to pack it all away. That also means that if there are some bits of it you don’t like then you can remove or move them. The prim count is just over 100 but this skybox is a perfect setting for a Halloween party or if your incline to the spooky side of SL a nice little home.
PS I will be stripping right down to my Alpha and TPing as soon as I can to Tromphe.
If you want to snatch up this darling little outfit you’re gonna have to RUSH! For 24 hours its up for grabs at just $50L. This is “Stormie” and you get the skirt with panties attached and the bandeau style top, of course as its Stars, you also get a Hud with ten choices of patterns & colours.
I was such a good little AV and I stood on my platform and binned, binned and then binned some more then for some insane reason I decided to go to the latest round ot the The Gacha Guardian event…FOOLISH ME!
Not just so many gifties set out for us but too much temptation in those Gachas which basically means I undid all my good work binning stuff.
Obviously, as usual, a lot of the small Froo Froo sorta thing but when they come as great as this platter of tempting treats who cares. I was hoping to find a dress or shoes but TBH when I’d unpacked a third of what I got I gave up as it was so late.
I also have to say that one of the reasons I’ve not been doing any of the big hunts going on is because I’m pretty sure our readers will know whats happening plus these events have a tendency to be so busy which means so laggy so I’ve been waiting for them to calm down but this.event was so nice and quiet just a few other AV’s like me wandering around checking the Gacha’s and grabbing the goodies. So for you I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a Sunday.
I’ve also put the link to the Seraphim website. This isn’t a blog for cheap or free but it’s the most comprehensive and up to date site for all the SL events.
PS You have to join the “Gimmie Gacha” group but invite is sent.
I don’t think I have previously shown you this wing and staff set but I do know I’ve had these things in my invent for the best part of the year just waiting for the chance to use them and Voila the time is right.
First, the FREE outfit from Cremosas which in the notice says it’s a new LM so use my LM and not yours just in case you still have the old one. This dress is a much more orangie(sic) Pumpkin colour than is shown, so shoot me I had fun with editing! A simple classic design but really good texturing so good I do believe this is my first Halloween look of the year. Comes in many Mesh bod fits so the usual “there will be a fit for all” comment.
There are 2 Cremosas groups, the free and the VIP which cost 100Lds to join. There is enough on the free side, inc this dress, for most people to be happy with but if you have a few lindens to spare check out the VIP item.
The wing and staff set come from Slivery K which has a few other smaller gifts, hair decor etc and if I had checked before I did this picture I think the Pumpkin/Halloween decoration that is now there is new to me for sure. Anyhow you will find the leather bat wings, staff, and a few other bits n bobs. Check out the rest of the shop as Silvery K is actually a really nice clothes shop and I own a couple of the items from this shop.
PS When you’re at Silvery K grab the gift called “HaripoteElegy” find a sim or take him home, I believe about 32 prims, rezz and ride. Simply silly.
The Black Fair is open and I’ve got such a terrific little dress to share with you from Neve. It’s a classic little dress that comes in a multitude of colours plus self patterned options. Brilliant fit as per usual from Neve over my Slink Physique body, other fits include: Freya,Isis, Lara and Slink Hourlgass.
The back reveals a little surprise – wings! From the Hud you can change the colour of them, or remove them completely – nice! Thanks Neve team ❤
