Cheap finishing touches

If you’re looking for a little something extra for your Autumn or Halloween outfits – I may have found just the things. Above is a neat look by Emotions, not only do you get this complete look but also the hair alone, the hair and hat and a big old fat pack of colours for just $5L.

I found this darling little head dress @ Indyra, placed on the front reception desk for free – no group to join, just pick it up. Perfect for Autumnal looks or Halloween.

Yep we have blogged it before and I’m blogging it again ! Too good not to mention is this Autumn hair do by adoness. Comes in just this colour, however there is another one that’s for winter – both cost $1L each.

Totally ignore this until the 10th….and I will repost it.. (25Lds Gifts).

Ooooo I snuck in lol way too early lol. Methinks someone forgot to put up ban lines as I was able to TP in with no problems but I’ve had a lovely message sent to me as it turns out this event doesn’t even start till the 10th of October!

I now feel naughty but not guilty lol.  So check the gifts out but I’ve removed the LM and will do a reminder on the 10th of October.

A new event has just started and it’s called “Samhain: A Pagan Festival” and this is what Google says about it.

Samhain (/ˈsɑːwɪn, ˈsaʊɪn/; Irish: [ˈsˠəuɪnʲ] Scottish Gaelic: [ˈs̪ãũ. ɪɲ]) is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.

Never ever heard of it but I do know one of the Gifts set out for us as I already own it but I ain’t mad at paying the 25Ld …Group Joining Fee for it and the other Gifts at this event.

This is a dark and foreboding black cube to have hovering over your home and inside is just as dark and foreboding.

I’ve had my copy of this for years and even now I’m stunned at the use of texturing and lighting to create such an atmospheric look and feel.

EDITABLE! Although so far all I did was remove the chair in the middle of the room and replace it with this other gift.  Super poses in it great attention to detail etc.

Also, some great poses in this set of luggage as well which make it look like you’re a weary traveller waiting for the next train out of town.  It is a bit on the big size for shoving in my home so I checked and you can shrink it which of course may affect the poses but it makes it much easier to use in a home.

The traveller’s journal set isn’t the last gift I picked up, they are a set of old portrait paintings which again like everything you’ve seen are just excellent so I’ve already relabelled the folder and next time I have a darker home they will go on the wall.

Let’s talk about prims, the skybox around the 50 ish mark, chair and stool 24 ish, the suitcase set definitely 7 prims and the notebook set 4prims.

You will find these and maybe other gifts, I think I got them all, to your right when you walk into the event.

PS.  Think “outside of the box”.  I’ve mentioned that the skybox is editable and although I’m not sure how much you can edit once that chair is removed think about changing it into a dark and decadent bedroom!!!! For those of you who enjoy a bit of kink in SL it’s a perfect room to play in.

Chuffed. (50Ld Fat Pack).

I usually don’t SL in the evenings but since I am a REBEL at heart I logged in just for a little while and it has paid off royally for me.

B-Made is a shop I’ve purchased a lot from over the few years it’s been open and the one thing I have wanted since the first time I saw it was this simple little boat.  Sadly since it’s one of the Gacha prizes over the year or so I’ve won everything BUT this boat!  I think I may have even won the rare and yet all I wanted was this little boat.  The reason is that this boat is just such a common sight at a UK beach/fishing quay in the UK.  It’s like a touch of realism in an unrealistic world.

So when I spotted that not just this boat but the WHOLE blinking Fatpack of these fishing and dockside Gacha prizes are only 50Ld I did a silent “woo hoo” and ran back home to unpack my spoils.

This bigger fishing boat is I believe the rare so you get everything from this to the single fishing pot, ropes etc.

PS.  There are freebies in the B-Made shop but I have blogged them and even worse I’ve just spotted something new I want to buy!

No more disclaimers.(Freebies & Bargains).

I’m going to try not to say when something is a “Reblog” because although a lot of people may have seen the item before or I definitely know something is being reblogged I’d like to assume that to someone the item is NEW or you may have owned it but it’s now lost in your invent so it’s a reminder of something that you may like to get again. So in future I’m going to try not to use the word “reblog” and just do the post.

These “Steel Head” gifts are a prime example.

Who does not own or has owned a pair of these Timberland style boots in RL? Damnit I swear I even have the same coloured laces.  Anyhow these ones from Steel Head also come with a hud so you can change the colour and the fit. They do come in a man’s size and it was easy for me to edit them to fit my feet.

I actually won a very similar pair of these from a Lucky Board which acted as a reminder to see if they’re still out for us.  A bigger hud of colours options for these fashion sneakers.

There are a few more gifts for us in this shop also what looks like it may be pretty handy and that’s a “script cleaning” set of scripts.  Use these with caution and practise first on a copy before you do anything with it.

Now for the “cheapies” and a totally random picture.

Let me explain.  I called into the “LOVE” landscaping shop/sim to see if there was any new discounted items, the new Autumn stock and if there were any new Group Gifts.  Yes to the first and second and nope to the third.  I bought the wild grass pack, only 50Lds for 10 different shades and you can just about make out the brick and iron fence set.  This Graveyard fence set comes as in a fatpack.  Each bit is only 1 prim and 2 prims if you use the linked gate.  Such excellent quality and low prims for only 50Lds! Don’t let the fact it’s labelled as a “Graveyard” fence set put you off as this makes for a great fence for someone living their best Victorian/old SL life lol.

There was another 50Ld offer and as for the Group Gifts, I didn’t really see anything new but check em out esp the Yoga rugs.

I’m logging off SL and binge-watching horror movies.  I indulged in a Shudder subscription and I can’t think of anything nicer than pulling the blinds down and chilling, geddit? watching horrors.

Let me tell you a “Fable”.(10Ld Gift & Mention of Gifts).

I don’t know how long the Fable 5 event has been up and running but since it’s nice and quiet I suspect it’s been open for a while.

Big enough to have a lot to tempt and small enough to now overwhelm us.

A good mix of clothes, decor, nails, make-up, home and garden items and a lot of the stalls has a 10Ld Gift out for us.

Since I too splashed out on 2 of the 25Ld offers I decided I’d just stick with this dress and just leave before the Fable event before I spent any more money.  It was the interesting looking “scrunchy” belt that piqued my interest and I wasn’t disappointed when I put it on.  The belt doesn’t go all the way around the back, which I think is best.  Lots of the main fits but not the Legacy range.

Looks like “Changed Seasons” has rebranded itself so it’s now called “Tip 2 Toe” and that’s the stall it came from for only 10Lds.

I’m shameless! (25Ld Tue).

I loaded up my 25Ld Tue hud and started to click through and was delighted to see this twiggy garden structure for sale at such a low price.

I have seen this structure before in the Simply Shelby shop but I don’t think it was a 25Ld offer at that time as I would have snapped it up straight away.

Now for the shameless bit.  You will see in the shop that you get a choice of Spring/Summer or Winter and I couldn’t make my mind up which season to buy so since I know the Simply Shelby range pretty well  I zoomed in and spotted the magical words “copy & mod”.

I am always truly grateful when a shop either intentionally or accidentally leaves something as Mod because it means if you’re a fiddler like me then you can adjust something which is pretty darn good as it is but you may want to tweak it and tweak it I did which is why I know you can remove all of the plantings and just leave the twiggy frame for you to leave either bare or using flowers/planting of your choice you can also change the season.

This inc a small little hanging tea light which isn’t linked.  Going by memory, it’s 22 prims complete, stripped down to the twigs only 16 and there is an 18prim version which is a “lower Li and No Physics”.

This ‘n’ That.(Freebie/Cheapie & Mention of GG).

More food for the hungry and Cheap B’s just like me, if you’re not into foodie stuff just fashions then skip this first part.
My first visit this morning was to a shop called Andika which will be known by many of us for its hyper-realistic food and generous Group Gifts.

This little chocolate/cheese platter is, of course, a dispenser for the wearable versions and the glass of fruity water is also a drink dispenser

Andika also does poses and just like their food range, they’re top quality.  Most of the poses come with props and to me their mainly for the pro photographer and not a point and clicky person like me.  Check them out though as they would make it very easy to take a stunning picture.

Now for the fashion bit….and it’s a reblog and no I don’t care!

I picked up a few things from the SL Marketplace, most of it binned, and I’ve saved something for later.  As I said this skirt is definitely a reblog as I not only remember it I still have it I just couldn’t find it in my invent so for only 10Lds I just had a new copy sent to me.

A big fat colour menu comes with it and maybe, in this case, the green underskirt and pink overskirt was not the best colour combo but I like it.  Plenty of other shades to play with.

SPECIAL MENTION to the hair.  There is a NEW Mina Group Gift out of a hair which as fate would have it I thought I was wearing it but I am wrong.  I had to go over to Mina’s to check it out as the hair I’m wearing is very similar but not the same.  So basically if you’re in the Mina Group go get this new gift and if you’re not but you like this style then check it out.  The Mina group does cost 200Lds to join and not only do you get regular group gifts the older gifts are still out for us, but there are also 2 maybe 3 Lucky Chairs and a 10% discount on purchases.

Oa-meo. (Marketplace).
