My reward.(NEW MINA)

BOOM, Adulting is finished for the day and I did it like a Pro! So now I’m SLing like a Pro!

A NEW Mina hair always makes my day and Luane is the name of this hair.

The hairband looks like braided leather and you get a big 12 colour hud for that alone as well as the standard big colour palette for the standard price tag of 300Lds.   All the colours of the leather braid are in muted tones but the gold one really stood out it just didn’t go with my woolie jumper.

This hair is only available at Uber which starts today so you may as well pop over to Mina’s first to try the demo as of course this event will be packed.

You know what I’m going to say next and if not then you don’t read my posts, I wouldn’t blame you lol.  Do not buy before you’ve check out what else is in the Mina shop, although this leather braided look is totally new she has a really nice range of hairs held back with some lovely scarves.  So much so I logged in and checked where they were and got a pleasant surprise as 3 of them are actual Gacha prizes and it’s only 75lds a try!  So check the Gacha’s on the first floor and of course, you can still try the demos of even Gacha prizes and then check upstairs as there is also a hair called “Indica” upstairs in the area to you right at the top of the stairs.

I think most people will just concentrate on the hair on the lower floor but the hair upstairs is as good as downstairs.  Some of my fav hairs which I wear regularly are up there so it’s not a dumping ground for old stuff…although there are older hairs which are discounted and some still work as well now as they did then.

A work of art.(New Mina@New Event? & Mention of Freebies)

This new Mina hair is at an event called “The Final Winter” which is most odd as Summer is here or at least that’s what people say but when I look out of my window it’s hard to tell it’s Summer.

I have obviously had fun with the editing but I know you know I always say try the demo first so you can try it and make sure it suits you.

I’ve just snagged the “The Final Winter” LM and on the notice board at the LM it says FREEBIES which are in the hidden dragon eggs so when I manage to get some more SLing time I’m dragon egg hunting.

I could be totes wrong but is this a “Game of Thrones” theme?  I don’t want to shock anyone but I’ve not only never watched an episode of Game of Thrones but DRUM ROLL…I’ve not even read a Harry Potter book and I am not ashamed to admit it.  I think the only reason it makes me think it is based on this show is that the length, braids etc and the way Mina Nakamura has styled this hair in her pictures suggests it to me but again I could be wrong….I often am.

PS.  Mina is usually so prompt in putting the demo hair in the “New” section and it is there but just not the image.  Go to the boards with all the new hairs and although the board is blank just click and buy the demo for 0Lds.  Chances are by the time you read this she will have put the picture up.

Resting B*tch Face.(10Ld TeleportHub Gift).

A quick start,  since I will be babbling on I’ll give you the details first and you can scroll past all of the babble.

TeleportHub group costs 10Lds to join, love this group.  This dress is a Maitreya only and although there is break-through at the back if you like it then it’s not a big issue esp if you wear it with long hair.  I picked this up from a shop which I know I’ve not visited before so I had a saunter through and there is a lot of the usual stuff but I found a couple of “ooo that looks interesting” so I grabbed myself a couple of demos to try on when I log back in.

That face comes with that pose so I decided to rummage in my invent for a better holding pose that didn’t give me a slapped arse face and I came across this one.

Yup wearable/playable cymbals.   Not much better but a lot more fun. I think they’re either an old Gacha win or hunt prize from Madpea. Every time I come across someone making those damned moaning noises I should whip these things out and stand next to them crashing my cymbals, (no offence to anyone who follows this blog and uses the moaning noises lol).

Can I tell you about a Mina hair rather than show you it?  Again feel free to scroll on I don’t mind.  Anyhow this hair is called “Elowen” has been out for quite a few weeks now and the reason I haven’t shown you it is not because it’s not unique, stunning and pretty damned relevant it’s because I can’t style it.

Do any of you watch”The Walking Dead”? I don’t but my OH never misses a show which is why I know that this hair is has been inspired by the characters called “Michonne” and yes I did have to google that.  Michonne has her hair styled in thick braids and uses fabric strips to keep it controlled and it’s the same with Mina’s version.  It’s not an identical copy, the braids are more random in their thickness, you have beads which I think you can wear with or without and of course it comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of everything.  You don’t need to be a Walking Dead fan to wear this hair, it may lend itself more to an RP style but it can just be worn any time you want just not on a skinny assed pale white AV like mine lol.  I just don’t do it justice so if you want to try it out for yourself then when you walk into the Mina main shop just turn to your right when you walk in and it’s on the wall there.

I was wrong and right at the same time, New Mina Group Gift Hair.

This has turned into a long post but stick with it as there is more info about bargains etc.

The hair I was wearing in my last post is called Irma and when I saw the new GG from Mina Nakamura I would have sworn I was actually wearing the new GG but I was wrong.

This is Carmen the new GG.

Scroll back to my last post and apart from the excellent Dollarbies I’m showing you in that post you will be able to see the comparison between that hair, Irma, and this new one called Carmen which is the newest addition to the Group Gifts.

Mina not only comes up with fresh new designs she often takes what works brill in one hair and incorporates it into another hair to create a new look and that’s why this messy piled up bun with all those straggly bits looked familiar to me but Carmen has a bigger messier bun and even more of those face-framing stragglies.  This is also why I always put the link to Mina’s main shop so you can see if there are other hairs with a similar styling that you actually prefer and you can try them on before you make your mind up as to which one you prefer.  I mean how many times have we bought something and then found something we would have much preferred and kicked ourselves?

Carmen comes free but only for those who are already in the Mina VIP Group and that only cost 200Lds to join.  Although you only get this one shade for Carmen you do get the option of wearing it with or without the stragglies and this shade will never be used in another Carmen or other hair pack, I’m not really sure but it’s a one-off colour.

The other GG’s are a mix of one-off colours ie the Arwen bloodied version or actually full shade packs but you can see and try the demos out for yourself before you decided if it’s worth joining.

There is also a men’s selection in the group gift room and everyone should grab both the male and female hairs as some of them make fine unisex hairs.

I’m in a lot of paid for groups as some of them can be pretty generous but we also know of some where you pay a hefty joining fee and never seem to get anything back well in this case even if you just join the Mina VIP group and snag all of the GG’s inc the men as well you get so much back for your 200Ld investment but if you decide to stay then you also get 10% off each future purchase.

Trust me I would join the Mina VIP group if I had to and as soon as a notice of a new hair comes out I’d be TPing over.

PS.  For those of you on a budget the Gacha’s have some really lovely shop quality hair and you get the full hair colour pack plus some great hat/hair combos so if you’re willing to risk the shade then this is a great way of getting a bargain hair for 100Lds and under and you can even try a demo on before you make your mind up.

SORRY more spam but I think you will find it helpful.  The new GG is on the wall at the LM but the rest of them are in an area to the right of the new stuff wall, at the bottom of the stairs.  You will also notice that the Gacha machines have gone but they haven’t Mina has just replaced them with Gacha boards.  So the super Gacha bargains are still to be had.  Lastly but not least Mina had a big shake up and a lot if not all of her “old hair” is now on the Marketplace.  This isn’t “old” hair as such what it is is these are the hairs that have the 5 shades in the pack as standard but quite a while ago now Mina changed it so that it’s now 10 shades in a pack!  So instead of faffing with the other hairs and inc the colours she’s just slashed the prices to I believe about 125Lds so amazing hair at amazing prices as long as you shop on the MP!

I swear to God my next post will be short!
