A hat that works for me.

I LOVE HATS, I may not wear earrings, bracelets, necklaces, bags ‘n’ panties etc in SL but I actually would LOVE to be able to wear more hats but it’s so hard to find ones that work with your fav hairs so to find this stunning hat which seems to go with so many of my existing  hairs has made my day.

Because I couldn’t see any demos I’ve taken the pictures just in my Nams Optimum setting.  If you look closely you will see that this one comes with a chin strap which when I first put it on was way too big but it only took a simple tweak to edit it to fit snugly.  Remember to make a copy if you’re unsure about tweaking so if you mess up then you still have the copy but honestly it was just a simple little thing to do.

You only get 1 shade of the hat base and I chose the beige shade but you do get a hud for the flowers, 9 shades in total, for the flowers and as you can see you can either keep them all the same shade or mix ‘n’ match.

This hat is only 123Lds and if I had been able to try the demo first I think I would have bought the fat pack as that is most reasonably priced but without a demo I wasn’t sure if it would fit.   Never mind as I have pencil marked another hat in the shop to buy at a later date, it’s the one with the veil and roses.

This is what it looks like from the back and I think you can see why it works, the hat has a thick brim to it and although I didn’t try on all my hairs apart from a couple of the “Big hairs” they all looked good with this hat.

It’s about time.(Mina’s Gacha Wins 100Lds or less).

I’m not going to blab on much because I do enough of it but I’ve mentioned a few times that in Mina’s mainshop there are Gachas and all are either 100Ld and in 1 case 75Lds and finally here is just an example to tease you.

Some of my fav goto hairs are Gacha wins.

Although you have to take your chances on the colours you do get the full colour pallet for that shade.  I think the 75Ld one is the only one which is limited in someway.

I’ve stuck to the mid browns tones but honestly, for example, the brown pallet goes from dark blonde to darkest brown.  I used to own a hair pack from a shop long gone in SL and in those days you didn’t have Huds and so this folder had 100’s  of hair and each a supposedly different shades in it but I could have binned almost all of them because the difference in the shading was almost non-existent but this is not the case with Mina’s hairs.

The weird thing is is that I rarely see Mina’s hairs in the yardsales so basically people must just be so happy with their wins there isn’t a big second-hand market for them.

I’m not even showing you them all as there are about 10 or 12 Gacha’s inc 2 hat/hair Gachas, although there are 3 styles of hats, of course, you can try before you buy because demos are available.  For 100Lds or less you can’t find finer hair.

PHEW, I can finally clear these pictures out of my folder now LOL.

PS Nams setting with no photo editing.

Stink Eye.(10Ld Group Gift).

That was sweet and simple and all thanks to a link from one of our readers, Brinlea, who gave me the heads up on this GG from Lode.

I’m not sure why but the Jian chickens really seem to have “F*CK YOU” faces on them, chickens with attitude!

The pump is the gift, not the stink-eyed chicken.

Comes with it’s own little stone square and look closely you will see the dragonflies attached to it.  It is copy and mod…except the only thing you can unlink is the Dragonflies and as it happens I’ve removed the pump and left them because although they are static they look pretty good where they are.

Cost 10Lds to join which is just a token price so simply join the group and you will find this gift in the group notices not in the main shop.  Better hurry as Group Notices disappear after 14 days and I don’t know how long this has been out.

Lodes isn’t a furniture/house/garden shop it’s actually a shop which sells some stunning headdresses and now it’s also a shared clothes shop with VRSION(sic) upstairs.

Overloaded. (freebies).

Awww another Happy Birthday and this time it’s The Instruments.  I can actually remember blogging the very first event and it’s come along way since there and so in celebration of its second birthday oodles of gifties for us all.

The dress and hat are gifts and the pretty box I’m carrying is one of the delivery packages I just used it and the pose it came with to take a quickie pic.

XXXinstrumentsuse

There are lots of bags which although they aren’t my thing as I don’t even remember to put on undies let alone accessories my look lol, however I am a decor nut and so of course I rezzed them and then prim checked to see if I could use them as decor items in my Boudoir and yup the ones I rezzed were only 1 prim and not lacking in any detail at all!  As soon as I got this dress I stopped unpacking and did my posing as it also means that when I rezz back inworld there is some nice surprises for me and of course since I’m not showing you everything some nice surprises for you as well.

This is a lovely well set out courtyard with stalls and everything is so easy to find but of course I checked out whats on sale and I picked up some wacky hair demos to try on soon and a few excellent potted plants for my home, not free, so you too may find something new to tempt you.

PS I think that when you rezz inworld you will be facing the wrong way.  So simple turn around and you can’t miss it.

Hunt me down(Freebies).

I decided to hone up on my Hunt hunting skills as there seems to be quite a few gearing up for action next month.  I decided to start with the MOH5 (men only hunt) because quite often a lot of hunts can have items which are pretty unisexed and if I have to be honest this hunt comes complete with pictures of the prizes and pretty good hunt clues.  Sadly though I was still useless and only managed to find a couple of goodies.

Hat

OK don’t look at the hair too closely,  I was having “issues” when I took these pictures so not only was my normally beautifully sleek and shiny hair looking all jagged my SLink hands resembled claws but I just didn’t have the time to relog which usually sorts this out.  Fortunately the hat which is the Hunt item has rezzed beautifully.  Comes with a resizer so will certainly fit any head no matter how big or small.

Because my hands were like Cruella Deville’s hands I couldn’t show you the leather wrist strap which comes with a resizer so yet again another item which can fit most AVs.

cats

I certainly will work for Pussy Cats, got 2 of the little hairballs in RL.  A simple but fun prop with pose.  LOVE the fact that if you click the board you can turn off and on the pose so you can wander around SL and sneak up on people and click on your sign and stand there proudly posing LOL.  It will make some people chuckle.

I’ve lost the link with the pictures, sorry but if you’re a male reader of our blog then there is some stunning top quality mesh clothes, poses, accessories and a few props with a few unisexed items for us ladies.  Everything is free and you’re looking for a glass of cool beer.

PS just in case you haven’t spotted it I’ve added the “cat”.

PPS the hat comes from G&D The Italian Style and the pose from The Pose Shop.

Wow(Freebies).

Everyone should now know I’m a PumeC addict but that doesn’t mean I don’t try on a lot of skins but I usually bin them straight away so when you come across a skin that makes you go “Wow” it really is a WOW.

star

I slung on some clothes and TPed straight over to a lovely beach sim and snapped away.  I was so quick I forgot to change to my Nams setting but the one I used was a very similar setting and trust me this skin is DIVINE.

star1

But of course you must remember I’m wearing my own Anna shape so although you may not get the same look you will get a beautiful bright, clear skin and SLink hands, feet, phat azz and Lola appliers inc.

freckles

You do actually get 4  skins in this pack, same shade but as you can see from this picture 2 skin with or without freckles and also 2 with or without cleavage.

The reason I am rushing this post is that there was some confusion as to whether the Elysium group was a paid to join group or free but when I grabbed this skin and the other GG’s:a pair of shoes and a hat but there is more there, it was free.  So just incase it turns into a paid to join group pop over and grab this goodie and the others items there.

Alos make sure to check out the Elysium’s Marketplace shop before you buy inworld as there is a big 70% sale off certain items but only on the MP.

As for my shape in the past year I’ve only blogged 1 other shape and that was a freebie, to me Analy Amat’s shop “anna shapes” make the BEST shapes in SL.  If you check out my Flickr pages or any of my photos apart from the recent photo of a free shape I wear nothing but an anna’s shape.  Although I seem to have lost the inworld shop she has a range of them for only 80Lds on her Marketplace shop.  Don’t worry as you can try before you buy and there is a fatpack of demos as well.
