Blogging SL, Pure Eggs & Spam @ Inworldz, second life

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.

Not the right attire – Free backdrop & pose

Headed over to La Vie En Pose to see if there was anything that caught my eye – there wasn’t BUT each stand had a little gift out if you join the group ! The group is free to join and I spent a happy hour wandering around checking the stands out and collecting pressies. I know I’m not really dressed for being tied up – but time didn’t permit an outfit change ! This was the gift by Synnergy you get the backdrop and the separate pose – really cool.

What did I buy (New Feature)

Hi loves – thought it was about time we had a new feature – Zan and I both show a lot of what we have found for free or very cheap , so I’m going to show you what I actually shelled out my hard earned $$$ for. (I did find a FREE gift though!) Let me know if its of interest to you !

I can never ever resist a back drop, especially from Minimal – they are always really well done and great for building up a scene within it or using it as shown. This one is called Stockholm Street and it does come with a tree to use also. Considered purchase for me at $799 but I always use them multiple times – so a good workhorse.

Next I snapped up a Wasabi hair do called Deva, lovely scruffy casual style that has the added bonus of some star and pearl hair clips – nice touch! Great length for all the winter sweaters that are sure to be bought in the next few months. Good Hud with texture change for the slides, roots and solid hair colours.

I just couldn’t say NO! Zan and Player already know I am a sucker for anything Christmas related – and here we are, D-Lab have this adorable wooden ornament / tree out for sale – uhoh its bought ! Two versions available a coloured and a wood – ohmydays so much happening, Santa on his sleigh spinning around, a space ship circling, a train and more and more – only 9Li!

Last up is the Alaskametro Holly lipsticks – great price @ $95L – I received $7L in a refund I think as I’m in the group? Grab the FREE nail polish to go with it – in the gift box below fabulous! Looks like the first day mania of the event has slowed down as I got into the Cam Sim easily.

Minimal cost – Group gifts

I buy SO many backdrops, seriously – I think its the new “gacha” for me – I just cant stop. Minimal are my absolute favourites though – well made, in proportion and really on trend. So I headed over there today to check out if anything caught my eye – and it did ! The two backdrops on the lower part of the photo above are group gifts – plenty other gifts to grab also and all the store quality that Minimal sell. There is a small join fee of $50L which is tiny in comparison to the fact you can fill your boots with stuff as group gifts PLUS you get 10% discount when  buying and wearing your group tag – nice! I bought the two backdrops on the upper part of the photo and ohmydays – they are lush! I know I’m actually going to be using these for the winter ❤

Not for everyone.(Freebie Backdrop).

I’m being tempted to buy a backdrop from the Synnergy stall at the event I’ve just blogged but there isn’t a full-sized demo anywhere for me to check out however there is this Freebie.

The Synnergy shop isn’t a big shop, but I’m liking what I see, so you will find the desk this is on just inside the door.  Simply buy it for 0Lds.

La Vie en Pose – Free gifts!

Great event on called La Vie en Pose – if you love your poses and props this is the place for you ! Each stand also has a free gift for you – just join the La Vie en Pose VIP group (no fee to pay) and click away. Fashiowl – as always – were very generous and have this fantastico car as their gift – heaps of poses and a real gem.

CEBO have this retro hair salon as their gift – a pose for the customer and a pose for the stylist built in – I think Id use it as a backdrop – really lovely ! It was SO difficult sticking to my measly budget – first time I’ve been a bit sad about not being able to buy anything boohoo!!

No beach? No Problem!

I came across this brill beach scene on the market place yesterday from CEBO Buildings. You could use it as a summertime backdrop for all your bikini snaps, it is modify also – so perhaps have a go at editing it. Add stuff of your own etc – however it does come with everything you see here. Also brill for a beach if you don’t have one – I’ve got mine in the sky above my studio platform – and just $125L .
