I did a lot of random TPing today and ended up at a shop called Hollyhocks.
It’s not a big shop and there is some appliers/flexi outfits which aren’t showing their ages well. A few more mesh items in a “little house on the praire” style, some bathing suits which were lovely in their modesty and over the desk is 3 free for all gifts inc this outfit.
I have googled this style of outfit which to me has a very Indian feel to it but I won’t say much more as I will just be showing off my ignorance of Indian fashions. Not a keeper for me but it’s just nice to show you something new.
Yes it’s this sweater/sweatshirt again and I don’t care. I joined the Loki group years ago just to get this top and I will reblog it every year till either everyone has it or it starts to show it’s SL age..and as you can see it’s aging beautifully.
There IS a New Group Gift in the Loki shop of a deceptively simple sweet dress but most if not all of the Loki range is just for Maitreya although it does fit me it’s a bit emm no but if you are a Maitreya then its perfect.
Sorry the Loki group does cost, I think it’s 99Lds, which for this sweater alone is worth it but there are other older gifts as well as the new one and some really nice prizes in the Lucky Boards.
There are also a couple of “Free for all” gifts and the simple sweater is something I’d recomend you grab.
As I rummaged through my invent to find a pair of pants to fit under this sweater I found these really good pink ones so a quick TP over to the “Look at me” shop shows they’re still there and it’s still a Free Group Gift. You may remember them when you see that these do come with a matching strappy summer top and I think I still have that as well. So nice.
OK I gotta go and pretend I have some RL work to do.
I bought a couple of items from the “The Arcade” event and now I regret it as I would have treated myself to an outfit from a shop called “Apricot Paws”
I have blogged this shop before so I was pleased to see a new FREE for all gift.
I can’t remember what the outfit is called but it had “beetle” in the name and the reason for that is that the jacket has 2 coat tails which do resemble Beetle wings and they’re tipped with metal. You get the long pants as well as shorts. There was also some sort of foot cover so I added a pair of my own boots to finish off the look, oh and of course my fav Mina hair called Blair.
Apricot Paws shop caters for a lot of alternative shapes/styles and by that I mean the furry sort but as you will see from the pictures in the shop there are also a lot of clothing designed for both furry and human alike. The human fit do seem to be mainly the Maitreya but in this case it makes no difference as this outfit could fit any shape.
In this case the blouse under the jacket is linked to the jacket but the pants are seperates and you get long legged pants and shorts. You also got a foot cover, which I think is for the furries so I popped on a pair of my own ankle boots.
You will reconise this blouse as I have shown it you to before and I still had it in my invent as it’s been a “keeper” since the day I picked it up from this shop.
I just LOVE the colour and style and as you can see in this second picture the pants from the new gift fit it perfectly.
There are more “Free For All” gifts on the back wall of the shop and you may find you can’t find a human enough fit but it’s fun to try them out.
I can’t stress more that you should check out the whole shop, it’s not that big, as although at first glance it looks like it’s furries only you will see a lot of human fits and if I hadn’t spent all my Lindens at The Arcade I would have bought a blouse/pantaloon set which I may still do in the future. Until then I’m so happy with these super gifts.
I’m starting to clear out the folders I have of previously blogged items so over the next few days you’re going to see some old and if the shop has new gifts out for us then I will either show you or tell you about them.
This latex catsuit, check out the cat ears on the top, is from the “I<3F & Co shop. I didn’t see any new gift on the wall in the shop but there are some really nice gifts and I even love the necklace so they’re well worth a TP as well but a nice surprise is that the gift box on the floor is full of old gifts. I can’t remember what is in those boxes so they will be a surprise for you.
These gifts are all “Free for All” so just click and accept.
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.
What a great start to a much colder Monday morning.
Trompe Loeil has their NEW FREE FOR ALL out and yet again another top quality build just for us.
Again as always there is as much detail on the back of this build as the front, those doors are sliding doors such a nice touch. Can you see the seats/shelves built into the side emmm bits..not sure what to call them?
This middle staircase neatly breaks up the large lower room and although I’m not showing you there is a nice fireplace as well.
Upstairs is a very useable platform with tons of space for a bedroom and even a bath etc.
As for this chair/stool set WOW not just keepers but I’m now wondering where I can squeeze these into my home. I think the name of this style is “Modern Danish” and it’s a style I actually love in RL but have you seen the price! Never mind at least I can own this even if it’s in SL lol. Looking at the picture of this set on Flickr it looks like you can change the colour but it doesn’t matter if you can’t as I personally love this colour.
I’ve left this lot out because the house is I think 51prims and the chair 5, stool 2 so hardly prim eating.
Cincoe has opened a new shop on what looks like a very pretty shopping sim. Although I did a snatch job in that I TP’d over grabbed this then TP’d home what little I saw of the Cincoe shop and the sim it’s on look so pretty I can’t wait to return to check it out properly…which will now be tomorrow.
This “Fishermans” chair is a free for all gift and it’s top quality and only 2 prims.
Not many poses in it but really nice ones and as an avid book reader that particular pose just sings to me.
