I’m out of Prism.(Freebie).

Just what I was looking for.

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.

Getting Hangry.(Dollarbie).

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.

No copying!(Freebie & Bargain).

If I’m correct I think about 80% of the grass we have out on our sim is from SR(Sweet Revolutions) but if I’m wrong the one thing I’m sure of is I own so many of the plants and trees from this shop I could cover our whole sim in just SR landscaping if I wanted to.

I went over there because SR is part of a Hunt but I also knew that I would end up buying something because you just can’t not.  I didn’t actually even start looking for the Hunt prizes as the NEW November group gift was more than enough.

This stunning and massive tree is the freebie and is ONLY 3 prims! As always you have a small plot of land then this will fill it with hardly any impact on your prim allowance or if you have a bigger plot then rezz away.

Again since our sim is still gloriously Autumnal, and yes I checked and so much of the grass is SR grass, I just rezzed a handy snowy platform and took a picture in our sim setting.

But of course, I did end up buying something but at 30Lds honestly cheap as chips.

This is another large 3 prim tree.  If you’re wondering what that spikey thing is one of the dead roots of this tree which like the tree in the top picture there is as much going on at the base of these tree’s as there is on the top.  I’m not sure if I will keep the bases of the tree’s as they are and I do know they’re editable but the editing will be limited.  I could and probably simply lower the tree’s so the bases are buried under the sim.

Just look at that texturing.  Those almost frond-like branches will make a great contrast against a snowy backdrop.

Both the Group Gift and this 30Ld offer are non-copy so you only get the 1 to play with, nothing to stop you from grabbing a few copies of the GG though but tbh the full priced packs of landscaping plants, rocks etc are pretty reasonably priced in any case and some come with things like season changing menu’s etc.

There is much more there than just landscaping as this is a shop which is aimed at the Gor/RP/etc and the whole sim is decorated in a dark and mysterious way for you to wander around.

 

Sweet Revolutions 

Big Fat Fail!(Freebie).

I’ve been trying to find a fine and free skin but so far it’s been a struggle, however, a couple of interesting things did crop up and the least of these is this really lovely and yes FREE skin.

Before I start blabbing on I will give you the details first.  A free GG skin from YS&YS(your skin your shape) taken in my Optimums Nams setting with a face light so low I forget I even have it on, it’s like the Touche Eclat for SL skins but with or without this is a lovely skin.

So whats the problem?  It’s just that, a skin and no appliers at all so you can see the dreaded join at the neck!  I’m seriously spoilt and lazy and since I have a PumeC addiction and they come with so many Appliers as standard it’s been a long time since I’ve had to splash out and buy one separate to the skin.  I’m also totally lazy because of course Mesh Bodies such as my SLink do come with a skin matching Hud but “ain’t nobody no time for that” or rather I don’t but of course you just may have.  This skin is to be found in the in-world shop but I was also looking on the Marketplace, that’s a headache in itself, and I grabbed a whole load of the YS&YS demos and they’re gorgeous skin so yes I had high hopes when I TPed over but sadly just the 1 giftie and if you’re not a lazy mare like me it might just be whatcha looking for.

I almost forgot to say that although you get 1 skin you get 5 shades and some shapes and I did slap some of my make up layers on(not in this picture though you get exactly what you see) to see if I could change the look and most of my lips sticks/eyeshadows/blushers etc covered up the original layers so it means 1 skin=several different looks.  The other thing is that although the YS&YS is mainly a skin shop there is a small selection of decor items and there is a really interesting and unique kitchen set up.

Another thing I noticed when scrolling through the never-ending lists on the Marketplace is there is a pretty thriving Gacha resale market and a lot of high-end skins for sale at Gacha prices.  So if you have some Lindens to spare but can’t afford the shop prices then the Gacha prices might just be what you want and because you don’t have to take a chance then you can find something you like but you won’t be able to try the demo and BE CAREFUL to read the description of what it is you’re buying.  I’d hate to see someone buy a skin only to find it was an eyeshadow etc.

Stoopid me and of course a lot of people still don’t have mesh bits and this skin is obviously wearable for you.

PS The hair is one of the Mina gacha hairs.  Chantal is one of my favs as although on the surface she’s a simple and unfussy look the hair is swept back into a big loose bun at the base of my neck.

Dench Designs does it again – FREE GIFT!UPDATED!

I always head straight to Dench Designs before Halloween – always such a brilliant selection of decor on offer at such reasonable prices. I bought a couple of things for my home then headed upstairs to see what other spooktacular pieces I could find – and I found the best ever FREE gift! This innocent looking patch of trees and greenery is awesomely grizzly! I actually chuckled out loud as I tried them out. I’m being gobbled up by a tree stump above…

.. and here a little girl rotates with creepy music playing – always sends a chill down my spine (my animation is a fearful shake) it’s just fantastic fun ! The sound and particle effects are great and it rezzes things that go with each pose (if applicable) Group is free to join btw. The LM should land you right outside the store’s front door.

Update: Take the teleport up to the Halloween section – then find your way up to the second level of Halloween goods – the FREE group gift is on the central plinth – FREE to all group members .

Oh My Days – I camped !

Whilst I was at Sakide, I noticed some “camp for gifts” chairs – I haven’t seen those for like everrrr! The prizes looked so cool I HAD to do it. Now its my “guilty secret”, it’s so relaxing sitting, going through my inventory and also keeping an eye on the lucky boards right in front of you. Above is my lucky board win – the “Vylena” dress, you get this in black and white – both have clean & bloody versions inc. Brilliant for the season and also afterwards.! Standard mesh sizes – the small fitted over my Slink Physique mesh body perfectly.

This was my camping prize “Adele” which comes with a Hud giving you further options on pattern. They are separates so you can split them up to mix & match. Standard av sizes – and again the small fitted me. I was keeping a beady eye on the lucky chairs and also watching the gifts on the camping chairs change – had my eye on some boots but dammm they changed before I could get my butt on the seat! You’ll find the boards and camp chairs in the gazebo thats in the central area (not inside the store).

Sakide

Group gift yay!

Haven’t been to Sakide in oh-so-long, popped over and wham – group gift ! (The group is free to join btw.) This is the “Romantic Fall Sweater” and you get SIX scrummy colours. Fits are included for all the major mesh bodies no standard av sizes though. Totally adorable and a real keeper for moi. The gift can be found in the gazebo type area outside of the store.
