Patience Pays.(Freebies@Kustom9)

As always I’m late to the party/event but now Kustom9 has finally calmed down I swooped in and grabbed all the goodies.

I wasn’t actually going to even bother as I am just overloaded with stuff still waiting to be unpacked then I spotted in a notice that since the first week a few of the stalls have added new gifts so if you were lucky to get into this event early then you may want to revisit it just in case there are new freebies for you.

This dress is just one of the gifts and although you may see some breakthrough, limited fits, it’s gorgeous.  I’ve only unpacked a few things and already started to file them in different folders and yes a lot of the small things but they’re from big shops so I will be trying out all of them before I make my mind up as to if they’re keepers or not and I have noticed that there are clothes and other big gifts so again a pleasant way to kill time and score some goodies.

PS.  If you’ve dropped me a IM inworld then sorry as like most people my IM’s are capped.  So if it was you and you want to know something or even better give me the heads up on some freeness then a note would be much handier.

It’s still Christmas. (15Ld Hunt & New Mina&Mention of Freebie).

I love the windlight setting on the Mina sim, it’s so freaking flattering.  I’m always tempted to drop her a note and ask for the details but she is one busy lady and I hate to bother her.

I’m still wearing jeans and glasses from my last post but the top I was wearing came from Ricielli and since it’s Spring/Easter time I popped over hoping that Ricielli has another one of their excellent hunts on and they do but it’s still the Christmas gifts.

My disappointment at nothing new was sweetened by the 2 prizes I bought.  As this is a paid for hunt there is a big poster with pictures of what’s in each box and more importantly, the sizes as not all the clothing comes in all the main mesh fits.  The clothes are shop quality.  I will say I was surprised as this top is supposed to be a mint colour and I don’t know if the sim lighting has changed it, doubtful, but it’s not mint.  NO complaints as I love this colour and down the back it has a flattened hoodie.

The second picture shows the other “prize” I treated myself to and this one deffo comes in the 2 colours the picture shows, this brown and a lovely dark green.

If you don’t know Ricielli then you won’t know that all of the old hunt gifts are stashed away in one of the buildings.  Still at the 15Lds prices but such a variety of casual wear, club wear, shoes, skirts etc.  To get there head out of the main shop and you will see a signpost, just click on the one for the emmm I think it said shoes/sale/discount etc something like that.

More hats now.

As you can see from these two pictures the hat/hair is very similar.  Hazel is the bottom picture and Fleur is the top.  Fleur is the newest hair although Hazel was only brought out a couple of weeks ago.

I will admit I much prefer Hazel, there is a ponytail down the back which you can even change the length of using the “style hud” but it’s the tendrils that frame your face I like the best and they too can be changed by using the hud.

Fleur, top picture, is so new you can only buy her from the Kustom9 event and again comes with a styling hud which is this case allows you to change the way the hair hangs down ie over one shouldn’t left or right or just simply hanging down the back.

PS.  I almost forgot there is a FREEBIE in the Ricielli shop, the LM takes you right next to it.  This is a stunning freebie but I know I’ve blogged it at least twice so I don’t really want to do it again.

PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

Get “Spendy” !(New Mina Hair& Freebie).

Nope, it ain’t working today, not only have I managed to delete all my pictures of “Tina” the new Mina hair but I’ve broken my eyes! So out of all the new pictures, I took this morning this is the best!

So a rather random post here.  The hair which you will have seen in a few previous posts is only available at Kustom9 of course at some stage it will be in the Mina main shop but as far as I know this round of Kustom9 will be over on the 10th so if you don’t want to wait for it to come back up for sale in her shop it’s time to TP.  It also means this very popular event will finally be nice and quiet which is a blessed relief.

You will have seen Tina plenty of times so check out my recent posts and you will be able to see her in different colours but check out this super “Kawaii Ombre” shade.

Tina, comes again as standard now with the bigger colour palette, material and non-material options etc all tucked into a very user friendly hud but she like a few other Mina hairs also comes with an “options” tab and those options gives you the choice of how you wear those pony tails and how your wear your fringe (bangs).

Back to the top picture and the outfit is the FREEBIE or in my case because I was lazy a Dollarbie because I picked this up from the WellMade Marketplace shop rather than the in-world shop where its set out for free.  There are other Dollarbies in the MP shop and because I didn’t go to the in-world shop I don’t know if they’re there as freebies but worth checking both out.

PS and yes when I get back in-world the first thing I’m going to do is sort out my “googly” eyes!

New Mina.(and small Freebie).

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.

999&9=Kustom9 and a whole shed load of 9’s

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).

xxxkustom

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”.

xxxkustom2

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.

xxxkustom6

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.

xxxkustom4

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
