Alexa says it’s Tuesday. (Free Mesh Head).

Catwa has done something I wish a few other shops would do when they have a special going on and that is the FREE Mesh head which everyone wants has now been placed out in THREE LOCATIONS!!!! Finally, some common sense! This means I now have the free Catwa head as although the LM was busy it was not stupid crazy busy and the mesh head is right at the LM, set to 0Ld to buy.

This offer does actually go on till May the 24th, I did think that it was only out for a much more limited time so it was good to see we all have a chance now of getting it.

I’ve not even unpacked it yet and I can’t wait as now I have this “unisex” head and mesh body I’m hoping to create a nice male shape which you may never see but it would be nice to have that option.

PS! I am pretty sure that this free head has been removed from the main Catwa shop so unless you want to shop there stop trying.

More for info. (Freebies).

Oooo, Oooo and Oooo again, look what turned up in my invent this morning.

That big stunning tree is a freebie from Hayabusa BUT you won’t find it in the shop as this is sent directly to you which means you have to be in the group, free, and I’m not sure that if you join now it will be sent to you automatically or you will miss out on this gift and have to wait for the next one to be sent out.  What is even nicer is that the free ones do usually come with complete menu’s so you can change the colour of leaves, flowers, bark and also the movement because of course the Hayabusa range is so well known for it’s moving in the wind motions.

This tree is 15prims which is not unreasonable for such a statement tree but you can get equal quality in their 1prim trees.

INFO ONLY:

Looks like Catwa now has a FREE Mesh Head out for us and here is my fav word  “BUT” as I do believe it’s limited in quality and as you can imagine the shop is crammed.  So I will give you the LM and you can keep on trying for yourself.

Good Morning. (10Ld Hunt Belle Epoque & Last Mention of the FREE Genus Head).

First, 3 of the 10Ld Belle Gifts and then I promise it’s my last word on the Genus head.

The 3 items I’m wearing are all only 10Lds each.  If you only have 10Lds then get that coat! I wasn’t going to buy it but when my pointer hovered over the stethoscope(that’s what you’re looking for) I decided for such a small amount I’d give it a go and not only is it OTT, super fuzzy and a damned good fit it comes with that hand pose.  So as you walk/stand etc your hands are in front of you which is such an excellent touch to such a great coat.

The retro hat/hair and dress are both separate gifts but obviously meant to go together. There is a lovely mix of t-shirts, dresses and even decor and everything is just 10Ld each.

MORE HEAD.

OK Last word on the Genus head, even if you own a mesh head go get it…now but remember you can get it from the Group Notices so you don’t have to fight the lag in the inworld shop.

I’m NOT wearing it in this picture, I still love my Lelutka head, but I had to log inworld first thing this morning and continue on with my “tweaking” as I know my pictures in the post I did about it don’t really do it justice.  So I tweaked the shape and lips, used a different skin from the free pack and added freckles and OMG I’m gorgeous lol, so much so at some stage esp since there seems to be a sale going on I’m going to see if I can get a matching body skin so I have this wonderful backup for when I feel like a change.

PS. How many of us will now be kicking ourselves for binning all the free Genus gifts from events, ME!

Not my best look buttt….(FREE Genus Head!)

I saw this offer on the list of shops giving us generous gifts to help our “stay indoors” a little bit less boring.   I totally ignored it as thought that it was only free for group members and the group came with a hefty joining fee and I was 100% wrong.  Thanks to Kiylee.

Not only is the Genus group totally free but you can also pick this gift up through the group notices which considering how packed the inworld shop is, 57 AVs when I last checked!  I think the reason the inworld shop is so busy is that there is also a discount sale going on.

I can’t give you the direct link to the group but I can tell you that this free head is labelled “Support from the Genus Project Team” so look for that in the group notices.

Yes ok, not my best look but read on.

This head is called “Strong Face” and I’m sure Kiylee mentioned that it was originally 5000Ld but I could be wrong.  Yes, I know who’d pay 5000Ld to look like this but all mesh bodies/heads need to be tweaked and this is how the head looks on my shape. TBH it doesn’t look much better on the recommended shape that comes with it but again we gotta tweak till we fit and since you seem to get a full hud to play with.  Personally, I’d want to thin the lips and open the eyes however the skin is lovely, nice ears and that nose is to die for!

UPDATE:  WOWSER! Ignore the goofy look I’m wearing! In my invent I found some Genus body shapes in a demo pack I’d picked up some time and just out of curiosity I tried a couple of those shapes on and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!  So again ignore how I look and think of how you would change this look.

Honestly I literally just did a couple of tweaks with the hud, turns out this IS a full bento head! I used one of the shapes from the demo pack I already had I think it’s called “Baby” and that popped the eyes out perfectly.  I’ve not worked out how to thin the lips but I know I should be able to do it.

So if that first picture put you off hopefully this second one will encourage you to go get it.

PS Remember I’m wearing a different skin on my body.

I was, almost, a Genesis Girl. (Free Mesh Head).

I was late to the mesh head addiction, that wasn’t because of the cost it was just the struggle to find a mesh head I felt represented me best.  Not that I look anything like my AV, I wish. So as I was looking and trying and testing out demo after demo I ended up at the Genesis Lab shop.  At that time the group did cost to join and I did because if I remember correctly there was a couple of free mesh heads so it was a cheap way of owning at least a couple of them.

Time has moved on and I ADORE my Leltuka head and PumeC skin and of course, we now have Bento mesh heads so it’s a whole new ball game however the Genesis group is now FREE to join so check out my noggin.

This is actually so much better than I had expected.  I am wearing the head and eyes but not the shape which comes as recommended for the eyes but I think this big open eye look is adorable.  She does feel a bit “stary” to me but of course, that’s because I use a Bento head so I’m much more used to facial expressions ie blinking, smiling.  Then when I’d cleaned my computer screen I could see that she also has a couple of light moles/freckles and it wasn’t just the dots of coffee splatter on my screen….shaddup we ALL have dirty screens! This skin is excellent, so clear and young and pretty.  You don’t get a full-body applier but you can either use your own body applier to make a match or purchase the body appliers which look as though for 200Lds you get all the shades.

There are other gifts mainly make up as far as I could see but for those of you who don’t have a mesh head or even a bento mesh head then I think this is a marvellous starting point.

UPDATE: I was in such a rush do to this post that it was only when I logged back in did I spot that this gift also inc a hud so I’m now having a little play with that and if this had been a gift out when I was first mesh headhunting I would have worn this all the time.

10Ld & Free Mesh Heads.

OH, the struggle not to title this post “I give great head”.

Obviously, this is a very stylised/Kawaii look but I think it’s fab that we’re now starting to see more and more mesh heads as gifts and although this isn’t my usual style I will be keeping it as sometimes I do come across some nice Kawaii clothing and this is a good fit for that style.

For 10Lds you get a variety of heads ie plain, sleepy, surprised, you also get the ears and a shape to wear.   You don’t get a skin applier so I took off my mesh body, but again if you wanted your mesh body to fit then just use the Hud you get with whatever mesh body you use.  There is also 2 other gifts in the Boataom shop inc another Mesh Head and I think the other one is a hair, but check that one out, both of these are FREE.  The free head has just the 1 head but a nice little Hud for eyes, lips etc

By Bad! (and a Freebie).

I took these pictures a couple of days ago obviously at the same time as the other New Mina hair but I didn’t want to overload  you with hair but now that I’ve had a good chance to mooch around the Tres Chic event which is where you will find this hair I have to tell you more.

XXXCross

Mina Nakamura’s creative juices must be overflowing because over the past few weeks there have been so many fresh new designs it’s really impossible which one to pick as being my fav but this hair is so amazingly like mine I’m shocked.  A few weeks ago I decided to go for the chop and although the hairdresser cut a bit too much off from what I had planned I’m absolutely in love with my new hair style so it was a bit of an amazed chuckle when I put this on and even the colour I’ve chosen to show you is almost my shade I only wish I was as flawless as my AV but that ain’t ever going to happen.

XXXCross2

I won’t go on again about the colour packs and prices as they’re all the same for Mina Hairs.  I do always have a tendency to stick to the browns and even occasionally I dare to go blonde but Mina’s hair comes in all the colour ranges from whitchy black to deathly white and all the more normal shades in between.  She also has what I consider to be the BEST shades in the orange/ginger range.  Very realistic and very zingy.

The Tres chic event is such a delight to go to not simply because of the whole new fresh range of clothes, poses and home decor etc but the lovely way the shopping mall has been designed, it makes it just as enjoyable to wander around as it is to treat yourself to an outfit or two.  Of course I priced checked and taking into account the newness of all of this stuff everything seems to be so fairly priced.

I’ll also put the LM for the decor display area as you really do need to check out esp if you have an SL home and you love the Autumn/Fall season.

XXXPumpkins

No other freebies apart from this, you will have to join the free Tres Chic group to grab.  The box on the left hand side with the little Bumble Bee and clutter is actually the delivery box that the linked bale of hay, pumpkins, lamp, sunflowers & leaves come in but the clutter box was just as good a piece of decor as the gift inside.  I love it when that happens LOL.

“My Bad” is because when I went back to LM grab I spotted that there is another Group Gift set out and it looks as though it’s going to be a very good quality leather bag but I will see when I get back inworld and unpack it.  Also in Group Chat someone asked where was the FREE Genesis mesh head so of course once I’d grabbed the bag I ran around and yes it’s there and you don’t need to be in the Genesis group which is good as this cost 250lds.  This head comes with everything you expect from a mesh head kit and inc skin and shape but from the glance I had at it if you want to use SLink hands/feet or any other thing like that then you would have to either purchase them from the Genesis shop or of course do it manually with the Hud you get with you hands/feet/boobies n butts.  This is a very pale skin I think it almost is Albino in colouring but this is a perfect time to grab a mesh head that’s not a demo and see if this is something you could use in sl.

PS get this dress!!! I blogged it last week and it’s such a good Freebie I will be keeping it for a long time it’s that good.  It’s  such a good fit as well that I can see this easily fitting under other clothes or even on top of leggings/tights and I think anyone out there will find this a handy addition to their invent.
