Last time I stumbled upon the Hashtag event it was literally hours before it was over so I was relieved when I again stumbled upon this event but we have till the 30th WOO HOO because it means I’m going to be able to have a nice leisurely wander around.
This is where you rezz and if you squint you will just be able to make out Alice’s legs as she disappears down the rabbit hole and yes it is an Alice in Wonderland themed event.
Walking into the hole you fall down the tree trunk and land in the shopping area.
People have spend a lot of time and yes money making this a really nice shopping event. I’ve taken the pictures in the sim setting but when I go back I will be changing it just so I can see things clearer because I basically don’t want to miss anything esp now I have the time to have a good look and not the mad rush I had at the last event.
So what is there for Cheap B*’s like us? the same as the last event in that lots if not all of the shops have gift bags out but they all come with a price tag but those price tags are for tiny amounts ie 5Lds, 10Lds etc and a lot of the shops have more than 1 gift bag. If you’re penny-pinching then most of the bags when you click on them say what’s inside so you can decide if it’s something you can use.
I’ve only done about a quarter of this event and as I’m starving I thought I’d do a quick post then have a nice lunch and then return inworld for a nice time. In the limited time I did spend at this event I picked up a couple of the gift bags, bought something which was a nice price but I’m not even sure what it is LOL and yes there is a lot of classic designs but I’ve also spotted a few really nice outfits which again if I wasn’t a CB with a Fat invent I would have been tempted to buy. Plus again since I’ve only scratched the surface of this event I don’t know but I’m pretty sure at the last one there were FREEBIES so when I return to this event you know I will be snuffling around for those freebies like a pig looking for truffles.
So basically a really nice way to kill a lazy Saturday afternoon.
Another month another round of Home Whimsy yippeee! This is a small event so no lag fest, in fact I decided to peruse the stores on the sim as it was so refreshing not to get bogged down. %percent have a scrummy box of Sakura jellies for their item, the box rezzes closed, touch it and it opens, touch again et voila! A delicious jelly treat is in your hand to scoff. Just 2Li so you wot be afraid to scatter the boxes around – works for anyone who touches it . Little bit of background on this piece:
“These jellies are a desert common in Northern Japan around the hanami flower season. They are a single cherry blossom flower suspended inside a sweetened almost-solid jelly. The RL versions have a faded blossom, (due to the creation process,) but I kept the blossoms in mine brighter to match how they appear on the cherry blossom tree. “
I also nabbed this sweet tree from Lunar Seasonal Designs “Menu Driven Nest Seat in a Cherry Tree “, as you can see I’m lolling about rather nicely reading a book but there are lots of other poses too. Now I thought this was just a cherry tree – but it isn’t – oh no, you get a seasonal version, even snow! You can also change the seat textures and bark. With 50% off its quite the bargain for something you can leave out all year round.
I finally stripped off my catsuit but on some sexy hunting clothes and then started to go through my notes and spotted this event.
You can just about make me out. The thing is this is very much a Halloween themed event and as we all know Halloween is now over and I don’t know how long all of this is going to be set out. Also, this is mainly themed to kiddies and yes if I had known that I wouldn’t have come here and what a shame. I’ve only walked part way down one aisle and have snagged myself some decor items, fun items etc and as soon as I click “publish” I’m logging back inworld and finishing off being a Greedy B as soon as I get back in.
PS if you want to see one of the fun things here is a simply gorgeous portrait of Moi!..it’s the teeth which gnash ewww.
So if like me you have a little time to spare check this place out now as it might just be gone tomorrow, although if I find an ending date I’ll put an update
Sorry about the smuttiness, I’m cold, bored and hungry and that’s a lousy combination.
The “Big” is “the Crossroads” and the blurb says….
“The Crossroads is a unique new event featuring six sections called Worlds, each with its own theme. The outstanding designers that take part in this event are distributed among the Roleplay, Vintage, Cute, Contemporary, Apocalypse and Lust worlds. From gachas to regular vendors, from lovely and cute to dark and apocalyptic, you’re bound to find something to suit your taste! So head on over to the very first round of The Crossroads, you have until July 28th to explore and shop” cutting and pasting has saved me a lot of typing.
What I say is “Woah” this is big, stalls and stalls of sheer temptation and as the blurb above says there are 6 areas to explore and I just didn’t have the time to scratch more than the surface but of course being a “cheap biatch” I grabbed the freebies at the rezzing area and I’m pretty sure that you can grab a note, there is a board there, which looks as though it gives you the LMs to all the stalls so if you don’t have the time to hunt any particular stall down you want to check out.
Sadly for a Cheap Biatch like me not as many freebies as my greedy little heart desires lol but check this out! Unique and gorgeous and there is a “Beach pallette” from Bauwerk which is definitely beach lounging worthy and this exc plant from Apt B and although the other items are wearables ie a couple of piercings, sunglasses, necklace, poses I’ve actually put them on and I’m keeping those piercings for sure. Sometimes the small things can surprise you more.
PS Don’t let my “big” comments put you off I think that once you have a wander around it’s not redic big and there is also a sign post to the different area.
A new round of The Mix is underway yippee! I love this event and what makes it even more speshul is Neve @ coldLogic are participating. For this round Neve has some fabulous fat packs of skirts & sweaters. Seriously, there is a whole HEAP of various designs, fabric, wools to check out. You can rifle through and snap up a few packs while the event is on for a discounted price. Above I’m wearing the “Espirit dye” sweater that comes in four different tones, and the denim skirt which is in, of course, delicious denim tones from back to light blue. The sooper dooper HUD for the top allows you to take the scarf on and off – brill ! Go take a peek, there’s suede, nobblybobbly wools and floral etc to take a gander at. The Mix is run by a HUD, which you can get your paws on from the market place , linked below.
I’m also wearing Elua’s offering “iola2” all colour packs for just $125L per pack and from Fri.day the boots “Rosie” in coal, different colours on offer for the low price of $87L a pop. My watch was a birthday gift from Player – I loved it SO much I bought another in a different colour – yes I really did ! It’s by a new-to-me store Muschi, not exactly a cheap trinket but so lush , definitely worth a look.
If you were wondering what Player and I were up too last night – we hopped around the Grid looking for some spoooooky FUN! We ended up at a very atmospheric Freak show and found this guy to pose with ! Its not all about shopping is it ❤
One more dayyyyy till 21 Shoe – will it ever arrive?! Anywayyyy at least I’ve got plenty of time to share the goodies with you eh? Actually I was dead in the water and uninspired when out of the blue Label Motion released this darling little pouf, packed with suitable shoe type poses – phew. What I didn’t realise is you get a whole load of the little babies in heaps of different colours and two size choices – yay. Soooo onto the shooz without further ado – these are from G&D and are such a classic style for summer. Love the wooden heel and platform, plus you get a HUD with gold or silver options for the studs.
Because its 21 Shoe (and its on for 48 hours not just 24 now!) you get two pairs of these Janis sandals for the price of one, the denim blue polka dot above and the golden polka in the first photo.
Lovers Playground is in this round of Perfect 10 and wowser have they changed ! I’ve known of this store for simply years and wayyyyy back when I did rental homes I used their adult furniture a lot. Things moved on and I just hadn’t thought of them or been to their store – well naughty me, because they have some amazing kit now. The set at Perfect 10 is on special offer with 50% off for the duration of this round. The set “country” is MASSIVE, truly and so low prim and full of meshy goodness. The bath is vintage style, in the menu you can rez all sorts of extras, like the rack over the bath sides or a shower & curtain (heaps of textures for the curtain btw). The set includes 178 poses *faints*, some for singles,lovers and adult. Zan and I both went wild for the 1 prim floor towels, they also have texture change in them.
A photo that I haven’t messed about with so you can clearly see some of the set. Everything is out on display for you to fiddle about with at the event – so head over and have a play.
This is the bath with the shower rezzed, dead cute. Included are also towel rails & rings, a loo (with adult stuff in it oh la la!) and a gorgeous sink unit with sweet poses in it for singles & couples. I don’t think you could ever become tired of this, SO much to do.
I haven’t rezzed the whole set yet, but I did pop to the main store and took a look around. Everybody is catered for, straight,lesbian,gay with no stinting on animations. Ever. The place is vast but luckily there are teleporters all around so navigating to where you want to be is pretty simple.
