“Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels”(Freebie(s)).

Hands up how many of you recognise both the title of this post and the backdrop.

When I actually first showed you this backdrop from a shop called Varonis I had no idea that it was the backdrop for a song/dance video titled, “Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels”.

This song and the dance has been mimicked by many but never bettered so I’ve put the link to the original and best by Todrick Hall.

He has a couple of similar versions on his channel, one called “Bells, Bows, Gifts, Trees” and a very relevant “Mask, Gloves, Soap, Scrubs” as well as so many other addictive music videos. He’s worked with some big names and is much more than a one-trick wonder, I’ve only just found him and I’ve already started to binge-watch his channel. I also love how he also has videos up showing you behind the scenes of his shoots and they’re just as addictive as the completed videos.

As for the backdrop, it’s a full-sized perfect copy of the original (59 prims) and I wonder if you did a bit of searching through the dance AO shops you could find this iconic dance routine or something similar, grab a friend or two or three or however many he has in his dance routine and just have some fun.

There is another free backdrop which is a bright red street scene so check this shop out.

Down the rabbit hole.(Freebie(s)).

I was just LM hopping and ended up at “Vicious Decay”. The name was familiar to me and a quick check of my invent was all I needed to remind myself that it’s because I own one of their sky boxes.

I spotted some random gift boxes on a table so I grabbed them and then hopped onto one of the TP’s to a rezzing platform and more about that at the end, first the FREEBIE.

That is the “Rabbit hole” made famous by a big white bunny with a pocket watch.

You have a long tunnel with bottles of potions and lamps on the way down.

At the bottom of the tunnel is this room.

That doorway leads to this corridor.

And at the end is this dark atmospherically lit room filled with glowling bottles of potions.

Last but not least is the table with of course the “Drink me” & “Eat Me” treats.

I had such fun zooming and camming around this build as I didn’t really think it was going to be as good as it is. Just a fun thing to have in your invent.

BTW. I should also have taken a photo of one of the other gifts which is a frying pan with a d*ck shaped egg in it, a very cheeky item of decor.

The shop on the ground isn’t that big and I won’t lie, not that interesting until you hop onto one of the TP’s to a rezzing platform. Their homes are so cheap, there was a MASSIVE Victorian mansion which at 150Ld was so cheap if I wasn’t on a spending limit this month I would have bought it to show you.

PS. Out of the 500Lds I started at the begining of the month I have 92Lds left so I may actually manage to stay in budget this month!

PPS. When I went back to LM grab I remembered that Vicious Decay share a platform with a shop I’ve not seen before called Coffee Stain.

Thank You. (Freebie).

Synnergy is not a free group, I think it’s 25Lds to join, and I am already in the group as it’s a backdrop/pose group and of course I use those sorts of things. It’s also how I spotted in the notice from Synnergy this FREE for ALL gorgeous backdrop.

A panel covered in poppies, ivy and berries and it rezzes as a wall for you to stand in front of it and snap away. Just so lovely and for all that detail and size it’s still only 18 Prims and now for the icing on the cake…COPY and MOD!

Oh my! so I did a quick edit and these 3 large clumps of ivy and berries are only 1 prim! I know I will be replacing the clumps of ivy on our sim with this much nicer patches when I can next log in.

I always really appreciate when a shop allows you to copy and edit an item as it just means that people can have a play around with something and make it more useful to them than maybe the original item was intended for.

BTW I’m not going to be checking out the Synnergy shop as I am too easily tempted and I know for a fact I will end up buying one of the backdrops and instead I’m going to check out the Full Perm shop that this item was created from.

Now, PAY ATTENTION! as this gift is a bit hidden but the Group notice does tell you where to look.  On the reception desk in the entrance are some icons ie Facebook, Blogotex etc and one of the icons is a gift box and you click on that and it’s sent to you.

I think I’ve found my new home.(Freebie).

I sat my skinny AV ass down determined to work through a whole load of gifts from an event long, long over now and came across a stunning backdrop from a shop called Varonis. No this isn’t my new home the details are in the last part of this post.

This is the new Group Gift from Varonis and yes it’s FREE.

I know that for many people a backdrop isn’t really a useful thing and that’s why even though you may never use one I say you really have to admire the quality.  This room is pretty big it’s more warehouse-size which means that if you do take pictures you will have no issues getting great angles.

As you can see there is a doorway which leads onto a small corridor with totally different colours and again another photo opportunity.

All of these pictures have just been taken in my sim setting so you can really see the quality in the lighting and use of textures to create such great and workable backdrops.

There is a small selection of clothing but really this shop is backdrops AND builds which is how I’ve found my new summer home.  For the first time in years, I think I will be living in the sky because if you check out the Lueur skybox demo you too will find your jaw-dropping at the stunning texturing/lights, price and prims! This skybox reminds me of one I already own and yet if I placed them side by side the older one will look so much chunkier and dated which in all fairness it is since I’ve had it for XXX amount of years.  So at some stage, I think I will rezz myself a little hut or I did pick up an 88Ld caravan from Collab88 and live in the sky for spring and summer.

Popping.(Freebies).

Another big backdrop shop is Voz and just for now the Group is FREE to join but this is only until the 31st…so Faith will miss these lol.

Hell Yes! The Halo colours pop and yet at the same time will not drown out any item of clothing you’re trying to show off.

Or just throw in this squeaky chair and have a tempory chill-out room in your SL life.

The chair comes in 5 or 6 shades and poses for him and her.

Not too (Shiney) Shabby. (Freebies).

Shiny Shabby has opened its door and everyone has flooded in, not too sure if it’s for all the new designs of clothing, furniture, skins etc or the FREEBIES!

For me, it’s the freebies of course and there seems to be oodles of them as from a quick scan around I could see a gift box on all of the stands.  So in this picture just from I’m wearing a FREE Valentina E dress and standing in a FREE The Bearded Guy backdrop/room but I’m not wearing the FREE Lipstick, lol.  Actually, it was pretty amazingly bold in colours, it just didn’t suit the dress so I’m sticking to the subtle shade I already had one.

The place is heaving, which does mean that for me the Winter Shop & Hop event may have calmed down so you know where my next TP will be too.

PS.  The dress comes in just the one fit, guess which, but shockingly it’s not a bad fit at all for me.

Not for everyone.(Freebie Backdrop).

I’m being tempted to buy a backdrop from the Synnergy stall at the event I’ve just blogged but there isn’t a full-sized demo anywhere for me to check out however there is this Freebie.

The Synnergy shop isn’t a big shop, but I’m liking what I see, so you will find the desk this is on just inside the door.  Simply buy it for 0Lds.
