All Animeshed up! (Free)

I’m always a bit late to the party but after Amanda Dench of Dench Designs placed out a free animesh “dancing dad” I was curious! Just download the latest viewer from SL or any other 3rd party viewer that carries animesh et voila – so much FUN! Amanda actually has made a whole band that sings, play instruments and dance – check it out.

I picked up Amanda’s dancing dad – he grooves away ! All animesh seems a bit prim heavy at the moment, hoping that gets lighter as designers get going.

My major purchase was an animesh companion, omg how weird, he really looks like an avatar! He moves, walks when you do, runs with you and sort of paces around behind you – great to take shopping so you don’t get bothered by the “you vant sexors” type of guys ūüôā He cost me $250L well worth it.

I also found a cracking dancing clown on the market place, bit creepy really but super – he cost me $49L. The dancing duck is for free and really cool. All links below – enjoy!

Well I never, quickie.(Freebies).

I was rummaging in my invent, binning this n that and tucking things away and I came across a folder of plants I previously blogged but in that folder from the same shop was also 2 boxes of “old stuff” and boy am I glad I opened them.

Usually, when stuff is “old” it’s a bit lacking but also they can give you a chuckle however in this box of old stuff I found some very interesting items.I’m just going to show you 1 item and it’s this “Candelabra¬†Wand” and as you can see from my glowing face it’s super bright.¬† I didn’t rezz a copy to see how many prims it is but laid on a table it will act as a magical lamp or wear it when you’re on a hunt to light your way.¬† There are 2 other “wands” plus as it happens some Christmassy items TBH I’m just going to leave it to you to unpack have a chuckle, bin what you don’t want but I bet you will keep a few of them.

Don’t worry when you get there and it’s a “Rental Office”.¬† Lunaria is the name of this rental agency but it’s also a shop so just walk through a couple of rooms and you will find the 2 boxes on the floor in the room which has a lot of Free to join Group Gifts and it’s the plants I’ve previously blogged but there is also clothes and Lucky Boards.

PS. Why the HELL is the whole of the UK blanketed in snow and it don’t even have the slightest dusting of the stuff! I WANT SNOW!

Don’t PANIC.(Free AV’s).

If I admit that I also watch videos on youtube about SL will I come across as a complete addict? ¬†LOL As it happens I usually have youtube playing in the background as I’m doing something else such as painting and I love watching videos by a lady called “Alicia Chenaux” who does a lot of things in SL such as ¬†unboxing, visiting interesting sims and events etc but damn it’s her soft girlish giggly voice that has me hooked, but she brought something up in her latest video that I’d never thought of even looking at and it’s New Noob Avs’.

Us oldies will hardly remember the “Ruths” we once were when we first entered SL but of course, we do know that the “noob” form was updated since then and it’s been updated a few times but it turns out there are newer forms and here is just a couple of them.

Yup, that’s me in one of the full new Noob AV’s. ¬†You get everything from eyes to bow and arrow and Bento Horsey!

Turns out I could remove the horse and have my AV on her own.  Each AV comes in both sexes so here is the male version.

I don’t know how many new and not so new AVs there are but a nice mix of styles of human and non-human forms. ¬†Obviously as much improved as these new Noob AV’s are, check out the hands lol, they are still a bit more basic than what were used to but still a vast improvement and if you want to check out some RP areas in SL but don’t want to have to splash the cash to change your appearance to fit in I’m sure you will find a new AV to fit.

Now for the “Don’t PANIC” because when you click the menu to change into the AV you want to try out everything is loaded onto you and that means you completely change. ¬†So you lose your¬†eyes, brows, shape, skin etc and of course every add-on you had on so mesh hands, body, feet, hair BUT again don’t panic as it’s just been returned to its folder ¬†in your invent just in the exact same way as if you took off one hair to wear another and the one you took off is now back in its folder ready for the next time you want to wear it. ¬†For me, since I’m forever changing skin, hair etc it’s really only going to take me a couple of minutes to pull myself back together and it shouldn’t take you much longer.

So if you want to listen to a lovely voice and watch her living a pretty interesting life then check out¬†Alicia Chenaux on youtube BUT if you want to listen to an equally as lovely voice with a clipped posh English accent but who is a wicked and witty troll then check out Lavender Storydel. ¬†She is so wickedly funny. ¬†I don’t like trolls on the whole as they’re usually just unfunny and are deliberately making people’s SL horrible, even though sometimes the person being trolled is just taking it way too seriously, but when they’re done in such a humorous way I love it.

I use Firestorm so the instructions are for that viewer but I should imagine that it will be just as easy to find out how to do it with the official SLviewer and I do believe the Firestorm one is laid out very similar to the SL one.

Top left-hand toolbar, click the tab “Avatar” scroll down to “Chose Avatar” and a window opens with a slider and you simply click the one you want to try on and let the magic start.

Guilty!(Fun FREE Stuff).

Yup I’m guilty of time wasting on the Marketplace but I’ve downloaded a whole load of mesh head demos to try out and then this lot of pure randomness!

slwuse

This cover all allows you to be out and about and at the same time enjoying one of you fave hobby, KNITTING of course. ¬†Actually, you can’t make me out but in SL if you look closely enough you can see the perv inside is emm¬†“spanking the monkey” as we say sometimes in the UK. ¬†You could wear this outfit when forced to go shopping inworld¬†with your significant other or simply plonk yourself next¬†to an innocent passerby or shopper and see how quickly your ass is banned from that sim.

slwuse3

Yup, they’re back the scammers and begging bots! ¬†You get 2 signs, the pose comes with it but that gurning face is mine.

This is an oldie and a classic, both Faith and I at some stage has owned it but it’s still cute.

slwuse4

I have a feeling this is for kids but since the movements you get with this are pretty good I’m not sure. ¬†A wearable only because I know that this rezzed is pretty primtastic¬†and I think the next wearable I’m going to show you will probably be just as primmy but it’s a wearable so it doesn’t matter.

slwuse2

One way to cart your drunken ass and the rest of your booze home lol. ¬†You’re sat on crates of bottles in this cart. ¬†Again comes with this pose but the open mouth is mine.

slwuse6

This one is older than time itself…ok a bit of an exaggeration but blimey those balloons are prims not mesh or even scuplties, at least I think they’re prims LOL. ¬†Worn as a train/skirt.

Last wearable is this Christmas scene.

slwuse5

You sit at a full table with a whole Christmas scene in front of you.

And this is where I’m kicking myself because I forgot to unpack and take pictures of a wall building kit. ¬†The stuff I’ve shown you is just for a laugh but the wall kit has potential and seems to be low primmed. ¬†So I will be spending the rest of the day unpacking and trying on heads but I will also check out the wall. ¬†If none of the above tempt you there is oodles of free and low prices goodies in this shop.

More to come, Fun Hunt.

Faith and I both love this regular Hunt and although the shopping sim looks as though it’s had a bit of a change you’re still looking for a cat called, actually not sure if he has a name other than “Ninja cat”.

In this picture I’m not wearing any of the hunt items basically because I couldn’t find any but I’ve only just gotten a few streets into the shopping sim and I couldn’t help myself and I scored a few fun Gacha items, the cat costume and a bath in the shape of a whale, the glow is from wearable glow sticks I won from one of the many lucky Boards in the shops here and you get a dance move in with them.

xxxhuntuse

But don’t walk past any shop without the hunt sign outside because not only is there oodles of Lucky Boards but lots of very interesting and kawaii fun things.

So all in all a perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Time wasting. (Fishy Freebie).

I’m just trying to delay starting on my paperwork, I’ve got my pen, coffee, stapler, hand cream, Tipex, printer and I even have a cat snuggled up in a box on my desk and yet I’m still procrastinating! so I thought one last mooch through the SL Marketplace and I WILL get some RL work done.

fishuse

Then when I found this fishy Mermaid/Merman Tail I just had to procrastinate more and pop inworld for a quick pic.¬† Because I’ve gone OTT with the editing the fish tail looks golden when in fact this it’s Sardine Silver, there is a really good image of it on the TSL Marketplace shop for you to check out for yourself.

OK Thats enough time-wasting and if I get cracking I might just be able to get all of this done and some time in the garden.  Have a great day everyone.

A New Chapter. (Freebies).

Faith recently did a couple of items from the Chapter Four event which is celebrating its 2nd year in SL but there was so much there to be grabbed she dropped me a note to say have a go and I did.

chap4

There are so many little gift boxes waiting to be picked up, you will have to join the Free to join Chapter Four group, but I have to be honest and say I didn’t notice any other trousers/pants/leggings other than the one’s Faith has already shown you but since these “jeggings” come in 2 Ombre shades I’ve picked the pair she didn’t wear.¬† As it happens you also get not just the standard mesh sizing but a whole set for those of you who lurve your curves, in this picture I’m wearing the non curvy pair which I think do still have a very womanly shape to them.¬† Loving this top as well with the exaggerated hem and a nice satin texturing to the neck and hemlines.¬† The glasses, shoes and sorry you can’t really see it, the bracelet are all Free.

It also turned out to be even luckier for me because I had a couple of RARE Gacha wins which is RARE for me LOL.¬† The build I’m standing on and a great looking table covered in Xfile type of things.¬† Lucky me.

The top is off the Le petites Details stall and the Jeggings from the Fishy Strawberry one.¬† Sorry but I’ve completely forgot who supplied the rest but trust me you will have fun snagging them all and then unpacking and sorting out all your new found Goodies.
