Spent the best part of my SLing time trying on mesh heads demos, rezzing furniture, eating mince pies and reading a good book…the last 2 things were obviously in RL not SL lol.
“Hec” is a name I remembered from previous posts. I know I didn’t keep the previous outfit as I knew I wouldn’t wear it again but I do remember well the very interesting Hud that it and from what I can see the whole range of Hec clothing seems to come in. Anyhow this latest Christmas Group Gift also comes with a Hud so although it comes as a complete outfit (not the shoes, hair or candy cane) and using the Hud you can wear as little or as much of this outfit as you want.
Because I was stark naked when I grabbed this I TPed over, snagged and ran so there may be other GG’s esp as this is to be found in a room on the ground floor market as “gifts” so even if you don’t need a new Christmassy look check out the shop in any case.
Who wouldn’t be tempted away from what they’re doing by this amazing dollarbie from Vanity?
Vanity is one of the hair shops I’ve actually spent money in and I think you can see why. Vanity hair has a range of braided and afro styles which in my opinion are the best in SL and so to be able to get one for just a single Linden is brill.
You will find this in the room behind the entrance, there did also seem to be a group gift next to this one of a very interesting, wacky, hair which I’m going to assume is a Group Gift but I will check that out later as you don’t even need to join the group to be able to buy this Dollarbie.
Just in case you’re not in the UK “Twit” means silly, idiot, foolish etc and that what I was yesterday. I spent so much time hopping from one Advent Calendar to another and it was only when I was getting ready to take a piccie of the gifts did it dawn on me that by the time you see the post those items won’t be available anymore! DOH!
So from now on apart from any advent calendar that is keeping the old gifts open for everyone to grab at any time what I will show you is freebies which aren’t “advent” related…such as this skirt.
Just a simple skirt with exc texturing, that peachy/gold colour works just as well with a wooly jumper as it would a strappy top. A simple and great start to the day.
This comes from ViSion which is a shop I’ve blogged before. There are 2 groups the Free and the VIP, this is obviously the Free GG lol. This and the VIP gifts are on the wall to your left when you go in the shop. I did notice that in the room just behind the reception desk was a whole load of Cheap B*’s waiting for their initials to come up on the Lucky Chairs and this Cheap B* did think about lingering but I’ve got places to go things to see and stuff to rezz and to find a top to match this skirt so I’ll see ya later.
I’ve only just done a freebie post of the gifts from La Galleria but another notice came through, slap that sub-board trust me you won’t regret it, and although I recognised a couple of the freebies a couple I didn’t.
Anyhow it’s basically an excuse to revisit La Galleria.
I’m 99% sure I’ve shown you the pumpkin display on the cart but at 10 prims for some it can be too many but that pumpkin with the twigs/flowers on the chair is only 2 prims which anyone can make room for. There is more pumpkin gifts a nice one I didn’t recognise which is just pumpkins with corn on the cobs etc a rack of plates etc.
You must slap the sub-board and check the “history” for yourself becuse you can get the old notices and see what it is you’re looking for as although these and some of the other gifts are easy to spot a lot of them as used as decor items in the rooms just at the LM..
So another quickie before I log off and go EAT SOME CARBS!
…now I’ve finished moaning here is my morning prize. S@bbia yet again is offer a damned decent free to join GG. 1 size fits all and it’s made my morning. There is 2 lucky boards and a puzzle board and I will be going back to LM grab but the old Group gifts should still be there on the wall to your right in the entrance.
It turns out my hair and makeup and even the shoes, although you can’t see them, from my previous picture still go with this more sedate look. This dress also comes in just the standard mesh fits and I have to say that although it has that “rounded shoulder” look to it to me this is more by design than just the use of a more basic template.
I had actually spent some time putting a few accessories with this outfit to make a complete look, ie a handbag, bow on the crown of my hair, pearls and then I lost interest in accessorising because I have so little patience to find just the right items so I gave up but I think you can see that add a little hand/clutch bag, a few pearls and although I don’t own a suitable hat for this a nice prim n proper hat and you have a ladylike look for NOTHING! cos that’s how much it costs to join the Prism group.
ARGH, I’ve been wandering around and around and around the Prism shop trying to find the Group gifts esp since I’ve seen a picture of their November gift but for the life of me I couldn’t find hide nor hair of anything, except a lowly little pumpkin.
So I bought it for a single Linden, not really expecting much but Woah! SCORE! A zinger of a metallic dress in all standard mesh fits.
WTF! There will be an update later because Woo Hoo I’ve found it. I always log back inworld to LM grab and this always makes less chance of an error but I can only assume that on my previous visit, not everything had rezzed because right there over the reception desk on the wall is the GG! I quickly snagged it and put it on but it deserves a post all of its own so that will be coming up soon but of course, nothing to stop you from grabbing this and it.
OK, so when you TP over you land outside of the Prism shop and you need to go into the door on your left not the one ahead of you. Again the GG’s is on the wall above the reception desk but on the far wall behind the reception desk on the floor is the pumpkin.
PS. The pumpkin is a Phycho Pumpkin Hunt Gift prize.
