This is a pretty regular thing from these 4 shops, I ain’t complaining. You simply slap a sub-board then slap one of the notice board in the shop, chose which shop you want the credit with and go shopping…pretty easy. This time I’ve chosen to spend my credit in the Vaxer shop so when I log in I’ll be having a nice look around.
PS. Time limit, I think it’s till the 25th to get the credit and then you have till the 31st to spend the credit….DOH I just spotted that that is exactly what the sign says lol.
Simple black pants with no hud, pockets, belt etc just a single button, the dot on my belly, for deccoration.
In fact their plainess is a bonus as you can see these can be teamed up with other items you may already have to make a cool and classy look.
BTW Even though I call them plain when seen inworld they do have a nice soft fabric texture with a hint of wrinkles and although dark they’re not that matt black, cheap, dark. You only get 2 fits, Maitreya & Legacy. The Maitreya wasn’t a great fit for my SLink bod so I was really suprised to find that the Legacy was! Which is great as I am going to be keeping these.
I picked these up from the Art&Ko stall at the Vanity Event. I didn’t see many other gifts at this event, a free body shape is the events gift, but things may not have rezzed for me as it’s sometimes an issue that “demo” and “gifts” don’t rezz even though the shop has, even yesterday I had to get faith over to see if there was a demo for an outfit I was tempted to buy or it just wasn’t rezzing for me…there was no demo so I didn’t buy it!
PS. To show them off better I’m going to hunt down a free/cheapie top and use these pants again.
Go to Entice for todays, the 16th, Advent gift as these green pants are such a good base item for your wardrobe.
I’m going to return on the 18th and 21st as I also want those items of clothing. The only reason I’ve not gotten anything from the Entice calender before now is that I know my preferred fit isn’t inc. These pants are a decent enough fit though.
PS. The poster shows you each daily gift and once it’s gone it’s gone I think that you can buy the past date clothes for…maybe about 25Lds. The actual Advent calender you click on is on the side of the board…yeah not clearly explained but as always once you get there you will see what I mean.
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 try not to look at other blogs for the simple reason I like to try to find something different and today I have FAILED TWICE!!!
I do watch some youtube channels for inspirations, updates on what’s going on, events, tutorials and occasionally links to gifts and I cannot believe that just today not only this excellent outfit I felt so chuffed finding they also show the Hilly Haalan Gift Shop!!!
Even my AV looks a bit hacked off. Never mind because in the end no matter where you see it or read it when the gifts are this good who cares we’re all after the same thing.
So this is a Subscribers gift if like me you’re already subbed then unsubbed and resub and it’s sent to you.
Maya is not only the name of the New Mina hair it’s also the name of the outfit I’m wearing.
At first glance, this is a simple hair with of course the now standard super big fatpack hud of unique colours that you won’t get anywhere else.
Even the “style hud” isn’t new as quite a few of Mina’s newer hairs now come with the option to play with the styling of it. NO What is new is if you look closely at the top picture, the front “strand” has been coloured differently from the rest of the hair. I picked 2 colours to make it stand out a bit more and as you can see the blend between the 2 shades is smooth. In this bottom picture I’ve not only made the colours more subtle but look closely you can see in this case that coloured strand is just one side. The style hud basically allows you to have 2 strands either side of your face, only 1 side or no colour strands at all. You use the same colour hud for the main head and with a colour slider, you basically can go wild with your hair.
As always you NEED to try this for yourself and since Uber hasn’t opened it’s doors yet you may as well go to Mina’s and try it for yourself. You get a fully interactive demo and of course, it’s LAG FREE!
While you’re there check out the New Mina Group Gift, it does cost 200Lds to join but even with that 1 hair you get your money worth however there are now a couple of lucky chairs and all the older gifts are out in the room to your right. You also get a 10% discount on every purchase.
As for the outfit when I typed Maya into my invent not only did the New Mina pop up so did a whole set of buildings/streets and this free outfit. I did blog it a long time ago and it’s so good I had to go check it’s still out and it is. It does have a very ethnic/hippy chic look to it especially the baggy pants. Usually, I’m not keen on “baggy pants” but the folds/creases etc and this dark rich texturing is why I’ve kept them all this time.
