Hiding in the shadows.(Freebie, Cheapie & Mention of lots and lots of Freebies).

OK, First the “freebie” which is the top.  The template for this top is now an SL classic and I have shown you at least one of these previously and you will undoubtedly see this design again but this one from “Pearl Fashion” comes with some damned fine texturing/colours.  You get a hud with a big 13 textures in total and plenty of fits as well but of course, with this style, it’s not really needed.

I almost forgot that this top is one of two free for all gifts in the Pearl Fashion shop.  There are some group gifts but this top and a pair of shorts are free for all, you do pay 1Ld and get 1Ld returned to you.  The reason I’m not showing you the shorts is that they’re very summery and I for the life of me couldn’t find another freebie to go with those shorts so I decided just to show you the top and let the shorts be a nice surprise.

The “cheapie” is a reblog and it’s the gold pants.  As I was pulling this look together I knew instantly it was going to be these pants.  They were and still are a 35Ld offer from “Sparrow”.  I popped over just to see if there was a new bargain out for us but it’s still these pants which I don’t mind at all because when something is this good it gives more people a chance to snap it up.  It’s a Maitreya fit only, you can try the demo first.

As for the “lots and lots of freebies” you will probably already have been to the “ACCESS” event but just in case you haven’t this event is packed with SL Birthday GIFTIES for us.  I visited this event quite a few days ago and I’ve not managed to even get around to checking out what I picked up but I’m betting my last 38Lds it’s gonna be good stuff as some of the top shops are at this event and almost as good, it’s calmed the F**d down lol.  Only 4 people when I was LM grabbing.

PPS.  Can you see what else I did?  I mentioned in a recent post about how Mina has hair with scarves and so I’m deliberately wearing one of them.  This hair is actually a 75Ld Gacha prize! If you decide to pop over to try the demo you will see that in the back you will see the hair is caught up into a casual bun and the ties of the scarf hang down and obviously you get a hud for the scarf as well.

Numpty.(Discounted Mina Hair).

I saw this hair on the New Boards in the Mina main shop but I was confused as I remember blogging this hair but I didn’t really give it too much thought until I got spendy at an event called Flourish and found this hair on one of the stalls there.

A fantastic offer because this hair, Karen, is only 99Ld but you’re still getting the full-colour pack of your choice and a style hud which allows you to change which side your hair hangs.

Hair like this is fab for taking pictures but if it’s a bit too windy for you then I know Mina has a few other hairs which have a much more subtle windswept look to them so as always LM to her main shop.

BTW The flourish event has now calmed down, phew, which is lucky as I did pick up a couple of 99Ld bargains.  It’s also a really nice sized event in that there is enough of everything, shoes, decor, hair but not so much you give in and TP home lol.

Resting B*tch Face.(10Ld TeleportHub Gift).

A quick start,  since I will be babbling on I’ll give you the details first and you can scroll past all of the babble.

TeleportHub group costs 10Lds to join, love this group.  This dress is a Maitreya only and although there is break-through at the back if you like it then it’s not a big issue esp if you wear it with long hair.  I picked this up from a shop which I know I’ve not visited before so I had a saunter through and there is a lot of the usual stuff but I found a couple of “ooo that looks interesting” so I grabbed myself a couple of demos to try on when I log back in.

That face comes with that pose so I decided to rummage in my invent for a better holding pose that didn’t give me a slapped arse face and I came across this one.

Yup wearable/playable cymbals.   Not much better but a lot more fun. I think they’re either an old Gacha win or hunt prize from Madpea. Every time I come across someone making those damned moaning noises I should whip these things out and stand next to them crashing my cymbals, (no offence to anyone who follows this blog and uses the moaning noises lol).

Can I tell you about a Mina hair rather than show you it?  Again feel free to scroll on I don’t mind.  Anyhow this hair is called “Elowen” has been out for quite a few weeks now and the reason I haven’t shown you it is not because it’s not unique, stunning and pretty damned relevant it’s because I can’t style it.

Do any of you watch”The Walking Dead”? I don’t but my OH never misses a show which is why I know that this hair is has been inspired by the characters called “Michonne” and yes I did have to google that.  Michonne has her hair styled in thick braids and uses fabric strips to keep it controlled and it’s the same with Mina’s version.  It’s not an identical copy, the braids are more random in their thickness, you have beads which I think you can wear with or without and of course it comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of everything.  You don’t need to be a Walking Dead fan to wear this hair, it may lend itself more to an RP style but it can just be worn any time you want just not on a skinny assed pale white AV like mine lol.  I just don’t do it justice so if you want to try it out for yourself then when you walk into the Mina main shop just turn to your right when you walk in and it’s on the wall there.

Get Wet! (Freebies).

I was at an event where I spotted an interesting dress but since I’m a Cheap B* and it had a price tag, I got the shops LM and with Bento fingers crossed TPed over and found freeness.

This little “Spring top & Thong” set is actually so simple and so pretty I will be keeping it.  You get a hud with some pretty floral textures AND it comes as separates AND you can change the texture on each piece which I should have just to show you.

This is another one of the freebie.  You get a good size hud and fits.

While I was in the “Red Girl” shop I grabbed a couple of demos, click on the picture to have the demos sent to you.

There are 2 Groups, one is free and the other is for the VIP’s and has a group joining fee of 100Lds BUT there are some nice items of clothing in that group and, I spotted a 250Ld Gift card with the Group gifts. I know the jeans demo I tried on cost 199lds so I could join the group and pay 100Lds and with the gift card buy the jeans so in the end they’d only cost me the 100Ld it cost to join the VIP group and I’d still have 50Lds left on the card and I might be able to put it towards the top I was interested in…decisions decisions decisions.

BTW The dress is one of the “Red Girl” group gifts but you will see gifts for other free groups and the first gift I’m showing you is the Avantgardista group gift.  The invited for those groups are just above the gifts.

PS. The hair is one of Mina’s interactive hair.  I’m pretty sure this is the first “Wet to dry” one she brought out, called Sandra.  I think the “wet look” was so popular that she added a permanently wet hair to the pack but if you remember with this hair, you dip your nogging into I think system water and it goes from dry to wet then whip out the wearable hair dryer and blast your hair back to dry.  Make sure to try the demo if your interested to see how it works as I’m just going by memory.

Just a timely reminder.

Tee Hee, I know there is a new Mina hairdo but this isn’t it.

Yeah yeah yeah I know Valentines just around the corner but I know for a lot of people it’s a time for roses, champagne, romance and declarations of love but for others, it’s all about the Dom and Sub lol.

A couple of days ago I ended up visiting another shop in SL which has been around since I was a duck walking noob and it’s nice to see it’s upped its game.  Some of the furniture which has been kinked out to the max would blend into any home and some of it looks like it should be in a private dungeon but I think to have an item of furniture in your home which looks so innocent and yet you and your partner know it’s not that innocent.  Not cheap, but I think just by looking at the menu you’re paying for top class kink.  I’m only guessing though as I think you need 2 to play/test the menu as I think it’s one of those “VLP, PLV, LVP” or something like that, one of the systems which allows one AV to control another I will admit I’m a bit clueless about that sort of thing but just take a mate, partner or willing friend if you want to test out the menus.

A bit more affordable is this hair and another one from Mina’s.  Previously blogged but as you can see from the collar this one has that extra kink.  I’ve cut and pasted the first bit of the note which comes with this hair.

“Your Peanut N°9 collar is operated like most other popular collars. You have menus, chat commands and your partners can use the Virtual Disgrace(tm) Owner Remote to play with you. If you are totally, completely new to collars, please take a moment to skim through the first page of the open-collar.at manual (5 min. read)”

I’m wearing the wrong fit as you can see it’s slightly buried into my boob but the corset I’m wearing is just a very old one which is only in the S,M,L fits so it’s not the best and I put it on for one last wearing before I bin it.  I do know that this hair comes in 2 sizes and the slightly bigger boob even on this badly fitting corset fits perfectly.

If this hair doesn’t get your blood pressure up then there is another hair at Mina’s, long drapey with the sexiest blindfold in SL.

As always links in the bottom and the hairs are older Mina’s so you will just find them on the wall in her mainshop and of course DEMO firsts.

PS.  The scratches and blood on my face is one of the freebies from the Gacha Garden Event.  I don’t know if I or Faith will do a post about this event because you will probably know about it already or even visited it already.  Lots of gifts waiting for me to unpack when I log back in so my day is sorted.

I wasn’t going to do this post butttttt…(New Mina & Bargains.)

Although you can’t really see it I am carrying a weekend bag in my hand and that’s because I’m off for a couple of days, Woo Hoo.  Nothing exciting though and looking at the rain tipping down outside it’s going to be a very damp couple of days away but even that can have its own charm.  So I will be back either on Mon or Tue and until then be safe have fun and be kind to yourself.

I wasn’t going to do a post I was just killing some time before my ride turns up  when I remembered that when I was pulling a pose outside of Mina’s main shop there was a bit of a crowd so once I’d scored myself some bargains I went over to find out what was going on.

It’s a NEW hair which let’s face it Mina has to be one of the most productive hair makers in SL because she just keeps on coming out with new hair all the time and never seems to stint on the quality or design and yes this is a HAT HAIR!

“Hazel” comes with a fantastic ball cap style hat and the extras are 3 HUDS! One for your hair colour, one to have your hair styled different ways ie change the length of the ponytail and the tendrils framing your face, and the third one to change the colour of the cap and the peak.  All of the colours are subtle shades.  Actually, the hat at a pinch would make a great horse riding hat, you do get a black shade, and it has that nob on the top which is a standard design for horse riding hats and although the peak is longer than you would find on a helmet you could get away with it, all I need now is a horsey.

As for the bargains, the jacket is a new GG from Santino Design and it only costs 10Lds to join the group.  There are a few group gifts out inc this new one and also lots and lots of bargains both downstairs and upstairs, I know for a fact I have a few items from this shop esp some pants which have turned out to be really handy items.

DISCLAIMER.  Obviously, the sim setting and editing have changed the colour of the jacket but you will see from the picture in the shop it’s a more goldie gold and although in the picture they have this gold colour and a blue/teal colour I can only see one in the pack.

Change of mind! (New, Kinky, Mina).

I know nothing about “Peanut no9” or “RLV”? or whatever, I am as Vanilla as that tub of ice cream in our freezer but I know this sort of thing is popular both in RL and SL.

This is Kim and she comes with the attached collar which is a “Peanut no9 Collar” controlled one.  Don’t worry if it’s new to you or it’s something you want to know more about as a full explanation note is included.  Actually Peanuts aside this is such a pretty hair, I LOVE the way the strands are under the collar and even worn as an every day wear it has that kink edge to it which will have people looking twice, it also has NEW colours as well.

BUT

If you’re wanting another hair with a bit of “kink” just not so much kink as the collar gives you then check this hair out.  I hated the original pictures I took of “Eden” so when I was over at Mina’s I decided to give it a second try and I am much happier with this picture.

Again it’s the way the strands of hair are woven under and over the blind and although you can’t see it the blind is tied in a very realistic knot. I often wear this hair just walking around which may seem odd but sometimes it’s nice to be just that little bit different and again I love the little kinky twist.

This hair called “Eden” is in Mina’s main shop as she is an older hair, but with the new big colour hud, and you will find her pretty darn close to the old Group Gift areas, hint hint, to the right of the reception desk and again although you can try the demo for Kim in the shop you get that from the FaMESHedX event.

In case you haven’t noticed it that’s an “X” on the end of the FaMESHed LM.  This is a new and very adult-themed event so adults only but if you can’t or don’t want to go to an adult-themed event don’t worry as I’m sure it won’t be long afterward when Kim can be bought from the Mina main shop.  Don’t worry though because this is one of the classier themed kinky events and even Apple Fall has a stall there with some very unusual decor items so it’s worth going just to look at them lol.

PS.  Yes I did have to edit out one of the nips as we’re only allowed 1 nip slip lol.
