Finally, I found an Alpha that fits this fabulous Freebie from Adorsy.
Unfortunately, that turned out to be my SLink full body Alpha LOL.
Because I couldn’t get any of the Alpha layers in my SLink hud to work with this skirt I actually took my whole mesh body off and just used my normal system shape but that didn’t pan out either because there isn’t an Alpha included in this skirt pack and I tried and tried to find an Alpha that I already have in my invent and then my head hurt, I needed a pee and my SLing time was running out and so I stripped off and just put my whole body Alpha on.
So why so much bother? because it’s a fabulous skirt, taken in my nams setting to show you the beautiful colour and details. You get 6 shades of skirt and the same shades in the panties (which you can wear or not wear depending on how cheeky you want to be). Once I’ve had my pee and a pain killer I’ll be putting everything back on.
This is an interesting shop, small in size but packed with some quality tops, skirts and dresses in beautiful Summery colours. I will be double checking but sadly it’s not clear as to what fits you are actually buying. I picked up a few Demos to try on but they too only come in the 1 size.
LM Grabbing and it turns out all of the items in this shop come as a Maitreya size ONLY!
You can’t see it but over my head is a DEMO sign because sadly as stunning as this sexy sci-fi/latex/sheer outfit it’s ONLY for Maitreya bodies! I had actually grabbed this and so many of the other demos because this shop is packed with temptation and I had noticed that the demos are Maitreya only but just assumed it was simply to give you an idea of how it looks but just before I clicked to buy this outfit (149Lds if you want it) I checked and nope I was right/wrong even the full priced items in this shop are Maitreya mesh body fits only!
I have to say I’m a bit gobsmacked that a shop should limit it’s fittings to just the 1 shape and yes I know that this does look a really good fit but there is too much “break through” on the back of it. I could, of course, use Alpha but this and so many of the other outfits are sheer and it would defeat the point to have whole bits of me “alpha’d” out.
Never mind if you have a Maitreya Mesh bod then lucky you or of course just go mesh bodless, I can’t do that I now live in my SLink bod but make sure to try the demos first.
There is Freebies though which is this black latex hat and there is a white version and also a set of Sci-fi glasses/eye shields in 3 shades.
OK, the gloves I’m wearing are in a Lucky Board BUT you only get the 1 shade, however, the full priced pack which comes in Slink, Maitreya and one standard fit only cost 220Lds and I don’t think that it unreasonable esp since these are Bento Gloves. You don’t need Bento hands for these gloves as you take your hands off but you will need a Bento enabled viewer and I guess some sort of Bento Hand Hud, obviously, I just used my SLink one. Anyhow, Demo there for you to try before you buy or of course you can simply kill some SL time and just loiter to grab the free pair or any of the other gifts that come up on the LB’s and there is also a couple of Free Group gifts.
PS the paid for pack contains 10 colours everything between classic white, scorching red and the blackest of black.
Just a mention about the hair which is called Blair and yes I know it sometimes sounds like every Mina hair is my fav when actually I don’t like every Mina hair! Shocking I know but we all know as good as a hair looks in pictures when you put it on your AV it sometimes just doesn’t gel. That doesn’t happen often with Mina hair for me but it still happens and that’s why I always say “try before you buy” or else you may regret it. Anyhow Blair is one of my favs. I’m wearing one of the gray shades not just because it goes with the whole look but we all know that the gray shades in SL are very hard to do as it’s hard to use that shade and not have it look as though the item just hasn’t rezzed properly. You can see that with the detailling she’s managed to make each strand stand out. Even though, I think, this hair is at least 2 years old it’s still top quality.
The warning is because my next post is gonna be one that encourages you to open your wallet, release the moths and spend some Linden’s cos I LOVE what I bought but I equally love this little sweet n free toe ribbon set.
A hud with some nice colours in it and comes in, I think, 3 mesh feet fits but FREE for you to find out for yourself. They’re in the ZD Zhora Design shop and there is also a set of Lucky Chairs.
OK now for the sad reality sh*te because at the moment in the UK a tower block that housed over 600 people is burning down. Lots of people have been saved, lots are in hospital and sadly since this is an ongoing event many people are still trapped so no one knows what the end will be for so many people. It gave me pause for thought, should I do such “trite” post considering what’s happening but then I thought “of course I should”. It’s been a rough few months from massive and horrendous terrorist attacks not just in the UK but all over the world but there has also been many smaller but because they’re personal tragedies ie the loss of a parent, sibling, child, loss of a job, home, personal possessions and on and on and because they’re so close to home even more painful. All we can do is remember to rejoice in what we have. I know that for a lot of people it’s hard to do but as someone who has enough RL crapola thrown at her, I can assure you that we all need to just stop occasionally and remember to appreciate what we do have and not what we have lost or never had in the first place.
I just couldn’t resist these mani & pedi’s by Alaskametro, great selection of colours and patterns – all for the steal price of just $49L each!
I bought three sets and I’m ready to go back and buy a couple more after testing them out. I purchased Dazzle, Snow Queen and Kimono. You get all that you see in the photos, I couldn’t believe it until I popped over to The Avenue event.
Omega & mesh body Huds in the pack , from memory I think Slink, Maitreya, TMP and Omega appliers were in the box.
I’m “Kissing” it this Sunday as OMG the sun is out and so am I, even if it’s just for 10 mins in the garden before it starts to rain.
So these 2 items might actually be reblogs, I have no shame reblogging stuff lol esp if I’m just not sure if I have or have not.
First is the dress which is now a classic SL design and it’s truly sheer which means it’s a mesh bod fit and from what I remember it comes with all the well known Mesh Bod fits and an AV Classic Fitmesh size. It also comes with a big 10 colour option Hud which is pretty nice and there is a red and black option for those saucy moments but the rest of the shades are super light pastels and perfect for the Summer season.
Normally when I do shoes I like to do them in my studio because I struggle to get nice close ups but I actually managed to do it where I was so that made a nice change. So here is some Spring/Summer Floral shoes to make up for my last post of Christmas shoes LOL.
The dress comes from No Cabide and the shoes from Hilly Haalan and both shops esp the Hilly Haalan one has a LOT of Freebies and I know you will have seen a lot of them already on our blog and others, I know you look at other blogs you sneaky things lol, but pop over in anycase if not for these gifts but to check out what else there is for you because esp at the Hilly Haalan shop there is a whole wall of them.
PS If you don’t want to be a Sl*tbunny and want panties to go under the sheer dress I’ve popped the LM to Elegance Boutique where you can get them for free and they come with a really BIG Hud.
A simple pair of Spring shoes, if you scroll past a few posts I did another Freebie of a really gorgeous little pair of sweet sexy shorts and these shoes have such a similar cherry blossom texture they will make a match AND that top Faith found in her BRILL “Wardrobe Essentials for 10Lds” find and what a stunning look for just 11Lds.
For these, you will have to log into the Marketplace as they’re a Dollarbie gift from Slippers Originals. There is an inworld shop but I don’t have any time for inworlding(sic) so I don’t know whats there so there might be another tasty surprise just waiting to be grabbed.
