Holo NOT Neon! (Freebie(s)).

I described the booty shorts from my last post as being “neon” but they’re not they’re holo just like this top is holo.

A most interesting texturing to it. I’ve not had a chance to walk around different windlight settings to see if it changes but one thing for sure it stands out.

This is a Marketplace Freebie from “Bearcat.egg”.

OH NO! Serves me right for feeling smug as I would have sworn I was going to be a “FIRST” with this freebie and then I checked the TeleportHub group and NOPE I’m a “SECOND”, story of my life lol.

SQUEEEE! (Freebie).

I relabel my photos to make them easier to find and I usually use the shop or event name that they came from but occasionally I find something so damned good I relabel it “SQUEEEEE” as that is the sound I make in my head when I find something as fine as this freebie.

I always check the FLF (Fifty Linden Friday) list on the Seraphim blog and I spotted a really nice looking casual “Waffle Homewear” outfit from a shop I’ve not visited in yonks.  It was so nice I decided to pop over and grab the demo and even though you only get two fits, Maitreya and Legacy, the Legacy fit was actually decent enough for me to really think about returning later to buy it.

But I wonder how many people who have also been tempted by the FLF offer will notice that on the wall on the other side of the door is this FREE Group Gift!   It’s delightful, such a lovely colour, superb texturing and with those folds and seams, this is what I call “shop quality” and you can’t get better than that.  This too is only a Maitreya/Legacy fit but I had no issues with that.

You can join the Free Inworld Group but when you click on the poster it gives you the Marketplace link so either way you have to get it off the Marketplaces.  I also thought that you get 2 colours, this lovely minty one and a red one but since there is only 1 freebie on the Marketplace I don’t know if you get the darker one just inworld or whatever.  One thing for sure I will return to maybe buy the “waffle” outfit and I will try again to see if the red version of this is a freebie or not..does not matter as this gift on its own is sooooooo good…GET IT!

UPDATE: I just had to log in and the U.F.O shop is still heaving but I had to know if you also get the red version of this dress and YUP you do! Click on the blue dress and you get the Marketplace link but click on the red dress and it’s sent to you….double score!

Behind the scenes.(Marketplace ONLY Dollarbies).

When I visit inworld shops I try to remember to also check out their marketplace shop as well because I know that sometimes people like to shop even when they cannot be inworld and in this case it paid off for me.

The Taikou shop has these out as Group Gifts in their inworld shop but the group does costs I think maybe 250Ld (ish) or more but the same inworld Group Gifts are on the Marketplace for 1Ld each.  I think I would have been slightly mad if I’d joined the get the Group Gifts only to find that I could have saved myself a lot of Lindens then again I don’t know what else the Group offers you so you may get a nice discount or gifts sent out directly to group members etc.

These gifts are not for everyone as they’re mainly for people who have a home in SL or in this first case like to use backdrops but since we like to have something of everything on this blog here they are.

This is a backdrop and it’s much bigger than I had expected which means it’s really good for using to take pictures. At the far end you can see some barriers and there is a little entrance there but it’s what’s behind those blue glass squares which I loved most.

LOVE this colour and the lighting of this, you can see the winter trees through the glass cubes.  This simple square room will make for a very interesting backdrop.  There is no doorway into it so you have to rezz a seat and sit on it to get in….dead simple.

The next Dollarbies is a very simply styled furniture pack.

The style, to me, is very Danish Modern in its simplicity and yet that’s not really true as look at the shadows, even the slats are shadowed.

You get these 3 matching pieces and a 4th one which although very similar didn’t have the slats feature and I couldn’t squeeze it in.  If I remember correctly I’m pretty sure each piece was just 1 or 2prims!  I almost forgot you can also change the colour of the slates, I think there are about 5 shades to chose from.

That’s me hiding in the background lol. When I packed up my land house I left the brickwork and just slapped down a concrete base so this is now my new workspace, over the wall is where my beach is and just in the distance is my horse running around…it’s my little spot of heaven lol.

This bike shed comes either in bits or in this case linked and still only 8prims in full.  I have a LOT of bikes in SL so I’m wondering if I have any spare prims to put them on show on this stand thing.

There are a total of 6 Dollarbies in the Taikou MP shop and I got all of them and all of them are excellent.

Deceptively Simple. (Dollarbie)

This is a deceptively simple summer dress and out of the “good, bad and ugly” I picked up off the Marketplace this is definitely, better than, good.

The texturing is as good as it looks, some nice subtle wrinkles and if you look closely a sexy little bit of side boob.  Nothing SCREAMS sexy as a subtle flash of side boob lol.

Damn, I’ve not even managed to log out of the Marketplace without adding something more to my invent….next post line up.

BTW Believe it or not the Sunflowers I’m holding have nothing to do with the ones I’m using as a backdrop it’s just spooky how they’re almost identical.

Winter or Summer.(Freebie).

Although I am still hoping for some more warm summer days in RL a BIG part of me is an Autumn girl.  The simple joy of a flickering fire, cats cuddled up, oversized jumpers to hide the fact you’ve eaten one too many slices of cake/pie/biscuits etc cannot be beaten.  Which brings me quite nicely to this.

Let’s be honest we probably ALL have this jumper already, not only because it’s a No Cabide gift, but because the template of it is pretty common but this one comes 20 excellent textures and I honestly don’t think I’ve seen them before because I’m sure I would not only remember such great textures but would have actually kept this jumper and it’s not in my invent.

I got this off the No Cabide Marketplace shop, I will be visiting the inworld shop soon, and you can see from the picture just how good those textures are.  So I may have chosen a winter theme for my backdrop but really this is a jumper for any season.

PS.  I’ll check where I got that hot chocolate drink from and if it’s a freebie I will do an update.

Mad Muttering.(Dollarbie).

It took me forever to work it out that I picked this little number up from the Marketplace and not inworld.

How retro is that pattern?  I’m just showing you the dress and not the mid height shoes which have the same texturing. I wanted to do a little bit of a close up so you can see that little sheer panel on the front of the dress.

This is the Dollarbie but there is the 99Ld option which comes with the shoes, hat and a 10 patterned hud which I think a lot of people will really like so buy the Dollarbie to check the quality and then treat yourself to the super-bargain priced on.

Since I’m now grabbing the Marketplace Link I might just grab myself a BIG cup of coffee, put Judge Judy on TV and have a scroll through the marketplace and see what else I can find.

PS. Fits are on the MP details.

MP or Inworld, Dollarbie or Freebie, your choice.(Freebies).

One of the items I picked up from the marketplace is this dress from Furtado I don’t really know if this has been blogged before either by me or Faith but it’s reblogworthy(sic) if it has been.

It is pretty sheer but don’t panic as you get a rather decent size hud of colours/textures and the ones with patterns on them are less “in your face” sheerness.  I don’t think I’ve done it justice in this pictures as the lace is very crisp and it’s what I call “Shop Quality”.

Then I decided to pop into the inworld shop just to see if it was there either for free or as a dollarbie and it’s not but it’s given me the excuse to show you an old Freebie which was a classic a few years ago and it still is.

This dress has an exaggerated width to it which always made it stand out.  You get plenty of fits and a really big hud of textures.

I think it wasn’t that long since I did a post about FurtaCor about a new GG and there is still this and many other Group Gifts on the shelves upstairs, just follow the arrows.

PS.  Both outfits also come with matching shoes.
