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.

Not today. (Freebie(s)).

I’m not showing you today’s day 18 !g0 gift asssss I can’t be bothered.  It’s a pair of shorts, lovely, totally wearable and if you’re a fan of the “Lady Mary” Gacha range then you will know the style I’m talking about.  Well worth it but my time is limited this morning and I wanted to show you my freeness and give you the LM to where you will find many more.

Socks, just socks but those bobbles make them adorable.

I cannot remember which stall I got these off but if I remember next time I log in I will add the shop name. Chances are when you’re walking around the Okinawa Christmas Festival picking up the freebies as well as checking out the items for sale you will pick them up.

Not as much in the clothing range among the gifts and you know I’m not an accessories lover but the stuff on the stalls are so tempting.  I not only came away with a lot of demo’s to try but I also tried my luck on the Gacha’s so all in all a lovely time waster to walk around, unpack your goodies and to treat yourself.

I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog, OMG what a team they must be.  This blog is my “goto” for not just info of whats on but most often you have not just the LM to events but pictures of the items for sale.  It doesn’t show you any freebies/gifts just the items for sale but it’s invaluable if you struggle in crowds to be able to see what’s for sale before you get there and so you can zone in on what you want to buy and also check out for yourself if there are freebies at this event.

I’m a Potato & Sunday is sorted.(LOTS of FREEBIES).

This is going to be a long post so I will break it down into bite size pieces.

The blouse is one of the hunt prizes from an event called “Party People Fair & Hunt”.

What you’re looking for is cute little potatoes and there are so many of them that in just the short distance I walked from the LM to the stalls I think I picked up about 8 of them.  Then I logged out did a quick google and found the link for pictures of what’s for sale and what are gifts.  The sale items are in the first picture and the gifts are in the second.  All of the hidden potatoes are in the middle of this sim, it’s a maze, and so badly hidden even a numpty like me had no problem.

Party People Sale & Hunt Prizes Pictures

Party People LM

The hair is a Mina one and it’s a Gacha Win from of course The Arcade. I’ve not even tried to get in there! I mean OMG is it even worth trying for at least 2 weeks? Naturally, I got mine sent to meeeee.  I usually when given the option “style” my hair with the hair tendrils hanging down framing my face but in this case, the fit of those scarves is just too good. I’m wearing the rigged version but if need be there is an unrigged version. From what I could see if you win one of the hairs in the Gacha you get a random shade of hair and a preset hud of scarf colours, the other prizes are of the earrings and other scarf huds.  Since I’m not a jewellery wearer I’m not sure I’d be too keen on winning them but they are really good earrings, I know you can’t see them from this angle but they’re quality hoops and beads and can be worn with anything.  TBH I’m cutting this short and putting the LM not only to just the Mina’s main shop BUT also to the Seraphim Yardsale.

Mina’s Main Shop.

Seraphim Yardsale

The Seraphim Yardsale is the place to go to if you want your fix of Arcade prizes but don’t want to wait and don’t want to risk not getting the prize you really want.  All of the items are laid out in a very neat and orderly way.  I’ve already picked up a couple of items I wanted without the stress of actually going to the Arcade itself.

The reason I’ve added a bit about the Seraphim yardsale is because of the Mina hair. It is rare to see a Mina Gacha hair up for resale, people are just happy with their prizes and I just never see them but I’ve noticed that the earrings and scarf huds have been boxed up for resale at the Seraphim yard sale.  So if you want the earings but not the hair or you want a different scarf hud OR if you want to get rid of the earrings or a scarf hud then pop over to the Seraphim Yardsale, they have made it super easy to buy and sell but there is a group joining fee to be able to do this but if you end up with a lot of unwanted stuff then think about packing it up and letting someone else buy it.

LAST chapter.  I know Faith did a post about the “Tres Chic” event and now that everyone has rushed over to The Arcade it means this event has finally calmed down!  So I went and grabbed all of the Birthday gifts and although I’ve not even started to unpack I have a sneaky suspicion there are some decent prizes in there inc SHOES!

Tres Chic

Sunday is sorted, I’m just about to click “Publish” do some RL work I have to do and then in a little while I can log back in with a guilt-free conscience, do the whole Party People event and then settle down on my platform and work my way through all of the goodies I’ve picked up.
