Hold & Stop

A new round of Fameshed means new pretties from Neve ! This is the Hold top and stop skirt. A great variety of packs to choose from, florals, gingham, plains and logos. I absolutely adore this shade of blue for summer, always reminds me of childhood holidays on the coast. So fresh and lively !

Fits are for all major mesh bodies and Legacy. Great together or mingle in with your existing wardrobe items. Love how the knotted front tee just lets your tummy peek out ! Thanks Neve team ❤ I also treated myself to the new hair by Monso Babi – three colour packs and two variants in the pack , one that is plain tones and one as above that you can fool around with coloured streaks.

Meet Lupine. (New Mina Hair).

Regular readers will recognise the background as being the house on the hill outside of the Mina Mainshop and I use it when I’m showing off a New Mina hair

I’ve taken dozens of pictures to try to show this hair off to it’s best and as always I end up sticking to the most simple pose and trust you will try the demo out for yourself.

I finally read the note which comes with all of the New Mina range of hair and I suspect that this hair as I’m wearing it is the non-material version and yet look at the colouring and strands?  Doesn’t it look like material quality?  If you’re wondering then the difference between “material” and “non-material” is that the non-one is just less detailed so for those of us who have computers that need a bit of help then wearing non-material can help with lag.

I then made a copy of the hair just in case I borked it and then had fun with played with the sliders in the style hud and WOAH!  When you crank up the material level you get a shine on it that any hair conditioning shampoo advert would kill for.  What is even more impressive is as you move your head the shine moves as well.  I can’t wait to log back in and crank up the material level, remember in this picture this is not the material version, and walk around.  See how much windlight and lighting affect the overall appearance of the hair.

I then played with the “glow” setting and we all know what the glow option does but I’m not sure if I’ve seen many hairs with this so I cranked it up and what an impact!  When cranked up to the highest setting it’s as though your hair is like a halo and yet you can still see the hair details under the glow.  I think photographers and people who like to stand out will just love this feature.

I wish I had a picture of all of the hair colours as this one comes with a massive hud of 84 colours!!!  Again I opted for the boring brown and there are a decent amount of “standard” colours but equally, there are ombre’s and pastels and of course a short while back Mina introduced brand new shades not seen in any other shops.

There is a couple of other things for you to check out but my post was getting ridiculously long and you MUST try it for yourself!  That way you can see not just all the things you get but of course to make sure it suits you as no one should take it for granted that a hair or skin which looks good when it’s being modelled by someone else will look just as good on you as them.  So as always the Mina Mainshop LM first esp as the FaMESHed event is where you buy it from.

UPDATE: let’s talk about cold hard cash.  This hair has a price tag of 400Lds BUT to get the “style hud” does cost another 150Lds.  I always say I save money to spend money and somethings in SL are worth paying for and that’s why yesterday even though I have enough landscaping to cover 2 more sims I still bought the new grass and trees because when something “sings” to you you will pay for it and especially when you also recognise the skill and time that has been put into something to make your SL life much better.   When it comes to skin and hair they too are two things you have to pay for. It is a shame that the style hud doesn’t come included as I personally adore the new superfine fringe that Mina has created but in the end, we’re paying for the quality and crafting and for that sometimes it has a price tag to match.

The hud has clearly defined “panels” panel 1 is the top and so on. Notice that button at the lower edge? Click on that, et voila your dress morphs into a sweet little top !

It’s all new(maybe). (Freebie(s)& NEW Mina Hair).

I went over to Mangula’s as I suspect there is a new Freebie out for us and the place was EMPTY!  I’ve never ever been there when it wasn’t heaving with people grabbing the subscribers gifts so it gave me a chance to look at the boards properly.

Nothing struck me as being new so I just grabbed this simple jeans and jumper set. You can’t see them but I am also wearing the excellent ankle boots so a whole look for zero Lindens.

This top isn’t ringing any bells.  You get the top alone, the top with panties attached and a denim skirt.  The reason I’m not wearing the skirt is that I was just curious to see if the bodysuit version would fit over the jeans from the first picture…and it does….small things for small minds lol.  Most of you will have visited this shop on a reg basis and will have for sure picked up some of the newer, and previously blogged, fatpacks.  These are totally shop quality and chances are everyone has them by now.

NOW for the Mina!  She’s not only updated her shades/hud and designs she’s updated her shop.  I did have a moment of panic thinking she’d updated her lovely house on the hill which I love to use as a backdrop but my second “home sweet home” is still there.  The lighting on Mina’s sim is perfect for showing all AV’s off to their best and it boggles me when I go shopping that some shops don’t make sure their windlight settings are set to be the most flattering for their clothes/hair and shop?

This hair is called “Gwen” and she’s the newest offering available @FaMESHed which hasn’t started as yet but I’m sure today is the day it opens it’s doors.

Gwen comes with a style hud which gives you a total of 6 ways to wear this hair but obviously, 3 of those ways are just mirror versions, so you can have the hair scooped back over your left ear, right ear, both ears, in front and fringe or fringeless. This fringe is the perfect “wispiness”, I should have popped a colour base on my hair so that little dot didn’t show but I didn’t think about it and since we all have hair base colours in our mesh head huds it’s something to remember next time.

New Mina &Mention of Freebie, Cheapie & Reblogged Freebie.

This is the NEW Mina hair I mentioned in my last post.

Mina now has a decent range of hair with hats, caps, scarves and beanies this backward wearing one is a nice fresh look to her range.

The hud has been updated and as mentioned to me I see new shades and if you look closely at the hair in the hair itself there seems to be more colour to the strands.  Goes without saying that the hat itself also comes with a Hud which allows you to change the cap, peak and the strap across the forehead.  You have to wear this with your mesh ears poking out as it has been designed to fit around them and I think my Lelutka mesh head has particularly cute ears…not that I’ve actually spent much time looking at mesh ears lol.

There is now as standard a colour slider so you can tweak the shading to fit exactly what you want.

To get this you do have to go to the FaMESHed event as this is only on sale there and of course I’ve just done a post about the Free Mina at this event plus hinted at all of the other amazing gifts in my last post.

As standard even though the FaMESHed event does now seem to have quietened down a bit I will put the LM for Mina’s for you to try this and the other brand new design out in her mainshop so you can make your mind up about it and also check out the other cap/hat/beanie/scarves hairs on offer.

As for the reblog, it is, of course, the outfit.  As always I was hoping for new GG’s from the Merch shop but as always when a gift is a brilliant as this one then as far as I’m concerned they can keep it out for months if not years.  There are other gifts which I will leave for you to find. OH and you get a Fatpack of colours not just the “peel” one I’m showing you.

UPDATE:  I’m stood in Mina’s shop and I’ve just worked out what has been niggling at me for a little while and I’ve realise what it is.  It looks like Mina is now changing from people buying just the palette of shade they want ie blonde, brown etc but a single purchase gets you a massive 70 shades going from the palest of blondes to the blackest black and a handful of pastels and ombre’s chucked in for the heck of it. Anyhow as always try it for yourself.

Yes another UPDATE:  Check out “Maybel” which is another newish hair, a touch of retro in the uplifted crown and a low downside ponytail for interest.  I happen to like my Maybel so to see her on sale for just 50Lds as a Wanderlust offer is brilliant.  I’m assuming this will change at the weekend so you do have a few days to check that out and I will try to take a picture of this hair to show you it.

A Smorgasbord of FREENESS & Info on 350Ld Blueberry Gift Card.

It finally calmed down enough at the FaMESHed event for me to be able to drag my skinny AV ass around and grab those goodies as almost every stand has a top-quality gift out for us.

I can’t even begin to guess how many gifts I picked up but I have about 2 hours of unpacking and working my way through each box and as I was grabbing away I did spot enough clothing, shoes and hair to keep everyone happy and speaking of hair check out this FREE Mina hair.

Kayla is one of her newer hairs, that very high ponytail hangs right down your back to your bum.  In this case, Kayla comes  just in the “Essentials pack” but really considering that pack contains a whole 28 shades is hardly what I’d call “Essential” I’d call it pretty bloody decent.  You also get the style hud which allows you to change the hair accessory and remove the fringe.

There is a NEW Mina for sale at this event and I’m hoping to be able to pull another full free outfit to show you some of the other gifts and wear that hair as well.  Just a heads up, if you like Mina’s recent baseball cap style hairs then you will love this one.

GIFT CARD.

As I was pulling this pose the notice came through from Blueberry about a new FREE to Group Members gift of 350Ld credit!  You don’t even need to go to the shop as you can get it from the Group Notices.  Yet another bloody generous gift and although it does cost you 20Lds to join the Blueberry Group that’s such a piddling amount.

Warning though because there is a two week limit to this gift card so if you can’t face the crush/lag of the Blueberry shop once you have your gift card then delay activating it till there is some space to move.

PS. The dress is also a freebie from FaMESHed and it’s one of those “strip me” dresses from the Vanilla Bae stall.
