I have a bugbear and it’s when someone SCREAM’S FREEBIE in their title and they have a stunning picture of an outfit or furniture and it turns out the FREEBIE is a tiny little thing, a mouthie, thingamajig or a whatsit etc so basically they’ve used FREEBIE as click bait.
So the “small freebie” in the title is the eyes, look deep into my Poetic Colour eyes…ignore the hair just look at my eyes!
You get a big pack of the one shade but so many sizes and of course, they’re mesh eyes.
NOW you can drool over the hair which sadly isn’t a freebie but it is a new Mina.
In the Mina shop, there is a lot of this style of hair, long, loose, natural drapey big hair without the wiggy/helmet look. Every Mina hair is different but sometimes she takes what works with a hair and works it into another hair which is why I always put her main shop LM so if you’re on a budget you can try all the hairs on before you find the one that sings to your heart.
BUT this one not only comes with the brilliant texturing and thickness but you can wear it 4 ways AND it comes with the newer 15 shades in each shade packs Hud and only 279Lds!
Slightly hyperventilating here. You can wear cheap clothes, you can wear cheap shoes but you cannot wear cheap skin or hair so even if you invest in one paid for hair pack or skin with this much bigger colour palette you get all you need.
So the “options”(on the Hud you click the options tab) are thick strands down the front of both shoulders, one strand only down either left or right or hair fully over the shoulder…yes clear as mud but of course always try out the demo’s first even if you like how this hair looks on me you must always try on hair/skin etc for yourself to make sure it suits your AV.
As it happens I didn’t notice the Demo in Mina’s mainshop on my last visit but it really should be there as she’s pretty good at putting the Demo’s and LM’s out for her new stock. Only available at Kustom9 at the mo and it’s packed! but for once I’ve got in pretty early so you have till the 10th April before this event is over.
UPDATE I was right and Mina has been prompt and “June” is now in her mainshop for you to try the demo on first.
Finally got myself over to Kustom9 not only because there is a new Mina but also a SHED load of gifties out for just 9Lds each. So I clicked and clicked and I even treated myself to a couple of Gacha’s and won not just a cute deer for our sim but the Rare skybox from Heikei(anyone wants a skybox? I have way too many so if you want it just drop me a note).
I didn’t buy everything as when you click on the gift boxes for the most part they tell you what is in them so since I’m not a big jewelry or bag wearer I gave those a miss. So I’ve got some of the decor items scattered around but check out my “look of the day”.
Ignore the eyes! not from this event and I don’t think I will be wearing them again as they’re just weird. OK believe it or not that’s a MINA for just 9LDs and as standard even with her special offers you get the full pack of brown shades and that might just be 5 shades but they are different, I’ve had hair colour packs where you couldn’t even see any difference. So you have the brown going from light to dark and again ONLY 9Ld! If you do have some Lindens to spend then check out the last picture for the full priced Mina but not everyone has or wants to spend a lot of money on their SL lives so to be able to give something to those on a budget is absolutely wonderful. Now check out my “rack” lol. This figure hugging top is from Kitja and it’s gorgeous a real keeper and then when I put on the jeans from the Spirit stall I was so pleased that they make a great match and then the shoes off the Momento stall again turn out to be the icing on the cake…or the look of the day.
I’m keeping these all and I don’t know if anyone does it but we should do it more which is to keep everything that makes a great look in the same folder. It makes getting dressed in SL so much quicker and easier. You used to be able to drag and drop the whole contents of your folder onto yourself and Voila you were dressed from head to toe but that was well before Mesh body bits.
Which has just reminded me, the jeans and top come in mesh body fits and the shoes SLink and Maitreya…damn I’m going to have to log back in to check….yes the top and jeans are for SLink Original/ Hourglass and Maitreya Lara sizing but also the jeans and the shoes are for SLink and Maitreya feet. If you don’t have a mesh body don’t let that put you off picking these up as it just means you will have to rummage in your invent for an alpha to fit and chances are they will fit you perfectly fine.
Be warned there is some new designs at this round of Kustom9 which got me looking and counting my Lindens so if you’re easily tempted you might just want to rush in grab the 9Ld gifts and rush out but if you want to stand out with some pretty darn good new looks then treat yourself.
Here is the full priced Mina called Estelle and TBH with such a generous gift sat there I think Mina is probably shooting herself in the foot but again if you have Lindens to spend plus you want hair in another shade pack then try
This is the new offering from Stars Fashion “Kaylie”, complete outfit (with a bag that I haven’t shown) includes the following:
– HUD with textures

Hair By Monso @ Kustom9
I found time to pop inworld between holidays! Yes yes I am off on my travels again Thursday, but I really wanted to share a coupla items with you before I leave. (More if I have time) Anyhoooo Neve have some pretty things out in the form of sundresses , two styles with a whole heap of colours and patterns. Each set comes with it’s on Hud that gives a choice of four colourways (Above is “cadence” blossom pack) – neat! The adorable strawberry patch Im sat on is by Jinx, it comes with two versions, one as above and one with an “AFK” sign, no prims taken up as it’s a wearable yipppeee! There are a few of these in the store – and uhm – well lets just say I may have a bit of an addiction to wearable stuff, ok?
Second style of frock “vivi” from Neve, I plumped for the blossom version again – gotta love me some florals. My hair is a new buy from Monso – love this hair designer to bits. You can grab this at the new round of Kustom9. Parasol was from this round of Collabor88 , by whatsnext. Fat pack of different colours and two packs with different designs. Pose is built right in, which is always cool. At just $80L a pack, you’d be missing a great deal. (I bought all three whatsnext items because – well – it was there and so prettttty)

I was right and wrong, there are ooodles of gifts at the latest round of Kustom9 but I was wrong that they are for free but at 9Lds each only so cheap and so worth it.
I will admit that although I grabbed everything time is so limited for me I’m just showing you a full outfit I made. Obviously the gifts even though you pay for them don’t come with demos but sometimes you just have to go by knowing the shop that is offering the gift and trust that it’s going to be a goodie.
Taken in my nams setting but I do believe a lamp I have in my bedroom will affect the actual colours but not by much, this isn’t cheap tat! I’ll list the stall that I got each item from so the dress=ohayo, necklace=Zenith, bracelets=Ninety, hair=Mithral and shoes-N-Core.
And then a zoom down to get closer to the N-core gifts. I’ve got the SLink ones on but this gift comes in all of the mesh feet available.
And then just before I logged out I decided to sort through my stuff and yes I’ll be honest I threw out what I won’t ever use again and renamed what I will and I came across these other Kustom9 9Lds gifts and I’m so glad I do always go through my folders before I click delete.
Again hair, jumper, jeans and boots all 9Lds each. I’m not keeping 1 item from this and I bet you lot can guess what it is but that doesn’t mean to say the quality is 100% it just means I have too many of them and I prefer the ones I have. Special mention to those shoes as I do believe that they’re unisexed. I had tried them on and didn’t really give them much of a thought till now and how wrong was I because they look so good with these jeans and probably all jeans plus they come with a socks on and off version and I loved the sock version as they will go great with a skirt or shorts and of course the non sock version perfect for jeans. As before I will list the shop stall that they came off BUT please try the rest as well. This is another hair, an adorable clutch bag and even an AO. Sometimes it’s nice just to grab everything and then spend some time unpacking and sorting stuff out it feeds my OCD! Sweater=Pixicat, Hair=Blues, Boots GB Gabriel, Jeans=Spirit.
Don’t I make a super cute ginger??? I only wish I was as brave in RL because I would dye my hair this glorious colour.
As you can tell from the name Josef is a male hair but the reality is a lot of the mens hairs at Mina’s are beautiful on both genders and since she now has a pretty large mens hair department if you’re a girl then you really need to check out the mens hairs as well. Obviously you can choose the colour pack of your choice from pale blondes to the darkest of blacks and at this event Josef is at a discounted price of 199Lds for the normal shades.
Ooo I have to say though I’ve just checked the note which comes with your hair purchase and of course the picture inc is of a male AV and if you think Josef looks good on me you should see it on a male AV!
Doesn’t it look like that horse is “mad eyeing” me?
Normally I would have waited for the Kustom 9 event to calm down to let you know about the new hair and of course I would be able to grab the freebies that are there BUT I did a post not long ago and I mentioned the blood drenched Mina hair, I’ll pop the picture down below, Mina has now set this hair out at Kustom 9 for ONLY 9Lindens!! so if you were tempted to get this hair but were short on Lindens it’s now at such a cheap price anyone can afford it.
The “FFS” in the title is because I’ve burnt my finger on my straighteners and I can’t TP back into Kustom 9! Give it a day or so to calm down, check out the new Mina hair, grab the bargains and as I’ve said I’m pretty sure there are some really good Freebies waiting to be snagged.
OH Lord I’ve burned my hand but fortunately the pain killers have started to kick in and I am finally able to show you this.
As much as I love to show off the Freebies sometimes you have to spend a few Lindens and to make me spend my Lindens it must be something really worth it and that’s my exact thought when I tried on this “Fancy Pants” outfit from Entice.
How gorgeous is this whole look. Comes as a one piece but the addition of a Hud which allows you 3 texture options for the jacket, shirt and shorts means you can chop and change.
Going to confuse you now. You will find this discounted item under the 55Lds Thursday sign, turn to your right and go in that way, but in fact it cost me 100Lds however the full priced options are 300Lds so this is a definite bargain. There was another discounted pack which had more glittery/disco textures which sounds awful but I loved that one as much as this and it was a struggle which to get. The demos for all of the colour packs are there and you do have to pay a Linden for it but it gets paid right back to you.
Special mention to the hair and skin because in my previous post I only mentioned them in passing. The hair is one I’ve previously blogged but it’s now available at the latest round of Kustom9 but in the whole colour colour palette range inc Ombres. While you’re waiting for that event to calm down then this skin is one of the old Lara Hurley Group Gifts which I mentioned and this one does come with the Appliers. Again I adored the New Free to Join GG’s skin and if you do have a few Lindens then 150 to buy the Applier Pack is not unreasonable at all.
OOKKAAYY pain killers have definitely kicked in so I think I’m having an attack of the munchies!
