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.

Just for a giggle.(Gone Hunting at the Arcade Event).

I’ve still not managed to get into this event and now I’ve seen what’s on offer I really want to get into this event!

I can still show you the Mina/Salt and Pepper collab hair.  You may remember “Salt and Pepper” as Mina has collabed with her before to bring us the excellent interactive wet/dry hair and now it’s a case of pretty hair to …….

 

ZOMBIE HAIR!

Fortunately for my dumb ass the hair came with a note because in the pack there is a steaming grate and a fire hydrant and I couldn’t understand why decor items were included in a Mina hair and then I read the note and it was a case of “nooooo wayyyy” lol.

Basically, you wear your hair and look lovely then rezz the grate and the hydrant where you want and when you walk over the grate you get a shower of sparks and your hair changes to a shaved side.  In the picture I am wearing the brain skull cap which is the “Players Reward” and I have to say what a shame it’s not inc as standard as it racks up the Zombification of this hair but Mina has also used facial scratches from one of my fav shops called Izzies so I will put the LM so you can go check out that shop and see if there are any freebies/cheapies or you might just buy something in any case OR of course if you check out the link to the Seraphim post you will see pictures of everything on offer and I have earmarked so many things I want to try to win.

The other thing I noticed is that with the shaved side this hair can be worn as an edgy haircut esp if you also win one of the more usual colour packs.  Anyhow I will leave it with you.

To return your hair back to its glorious normalness just keep on walking past the fire hydrant and get doused with water and a twinkle of lights and voila you’re gorgeous again.

I’m wearing the shorter hair version.  As always I have put the link to Mina’s main shop as you can get not just the demo hair and she also has the grate and hydrant set out for you to walk past and try the transformation before you get into the event and of course more info on the common and rare wins.

PS.  Only 75Lds a try even if you’re not bothered with it as a shaved look for a really lovely and wearable hair it’s a BARGAIN!

I then decided to pop over to the Salt and Pepper main shop as I’ve not really paid it much attention.  It costs 300Lds joining fee but not only are there some really REALLY nice GG’s it also seems this group also allows you entrance to a selective club called “The Birdcage” and Ooerr its a naughty club for naughty people! So I didn’t join because I am a good girl lol but you baddies might want to check that out.

PS.  Sorry clothes are old freebies and not available any more BUT although the Izzie group is a paid for one I spotted a free for all of a black lipstick which comes with extra vampiness plus there are small cheap little gift boxes which for a few Lindens contain old stuff.  I do remember buying these a long time ago and unless the contents have been updated now that I wear a mesh body/head I don’t know how much of it I could use now but it might be nice to just spend a few Lindens (10) to check out the contents.

Permamently Wet.(New Mina & 10Ld Promo).

A while ago Mina did a brand new thing and brought out “AquaSense” hair and although there is a wet hair out there this “wet” hair is scripted to react to SL default water and so your hair can go from dry to wet to dry to wet etc.  She then realised that people loved the wet look and wanted to keep their hair wet for longer and so updated it so you can keep your hair in the permanently wet stage and only change it to dry with a click of the hud.

Each hair pack comes with a handy hairdryer so for a touch of realism you can whip it out and a blast of that and your bouffant is back.

I’ve put the link to Mina’s blog and the page which shows you the Hud and maybe explains it a bit clearer than I can but ultimately you need to try the demo so as always LM for Mina’s main shop at the end of this post.  This is because this hair is only available at “The Fetish Fair” which is packed! so not only can you try the demo lag free you can also check out the other “wet hair” called Sandra at the same time to see which one you like the best.  Although they both share the same overall look this new hair, Raven has that thick front piece which covers your face.  The other slightly older hair is to be found near to the Gachas plus there is a shower for you to try out the fully interactive demo.

BUT remember this hair only gets wet in SLdefault water and S&P products.  S&P stands for Salt and Pepper which is a shop Mina did a recent collab with and I will admit time was so short I never actually went over to that shop but I will as soon as I can log back inworld.

If you haven’t guessed it the bodysuit is the 10Ld gift,  Marketplace only and it comes in all the standard mesh bod fits and I’m pretty darn happy with it.

PS.  Raven is on the wall with the new releases BUT on my LM grabbing visit the picture hadn’t been placed on the board yet but you can still click on the first new release board and buy the demo of 0Ld, chances are Mina will have the picture loaded before you even pop over as she is usually so prompt with these things.

Nooooooooo! She’s done it again.

I never got around to doing a post about the Mina hair I’ve been wearing over the past week but damn as soon as I saw this I ripped off that wig and slapped this beauty on.

Mina has done it again and added that something extra which to me makes her hair something extra and in this case its hair that goes from wet to dry to wet to dry to wet etc and although you can’t see it in this picture when wet you even get drops of water running down the strands.

The wet look lasts for 135 seconds.

Or if you wanted it dried super quick just whip out the hairdryer thats included and 5 seconds late super dry and stylish hair.

I don’t really know what else to say, not that ever stops me, but yet again Mina has just added something NEW to SL hair. Every time she brings out a new hair there just seems to be something extra, whether that’s a bigger colour hud or the options in the “options tab” which allows you to change the way you style it, material and non material versions so people who want to reduce any lag issues their computer may have can still wear a great hair but without any impact on how their computer runs and on and on and now this wet to dry or dry to wet just adds another dimension.

Here is the note that comes with the hair with instructions on how to get the best out of it but really it’s easy to understand.

“The hair turns wet on contact with default SL water,
It dries off in the sun, 135 seconds to fully dry. Or use the included Blow Dryer; the hair dries within 5 seconds.

Quick command in local chat to get wet hair: /1337 get wet
Quick command in local chat to get dry hair: /1337 get dry

The hair is Fitted Mesh and works with your sliders but I also included two versions, one for the bigger breasts bodies like the SLink Hourglass and Belleza’s Freya and one for Maitreya etc.”

So as you can see you don’t even need to dunk your hair in SL water, just type the short command in chat and you can have that wet look anywhere anytime.

Soooo where do you get it from?  You can get this from FaMESHed which has started NOW and the price for this hair is 325Lds for each shade pack, 15 shades in total, 300Lds for the 13 Shade pack or you could go wild and buy the Fat Pack but I can’t remember the price of that one.

Mina has collabbed(sic) with a shop called Salt & Pepper and what a team up it’s turned out to be.  The Salt & Pepper Gacha’s theme is “Wet T-Shirt Contest” and the prizes range from the catwalk to sashes but it’s the clothing which I bet most people will be wanting to get their mitts on as it too has the “wet to dry to wet” feature and   I’ve put the link to the Seraphim Arcade picture so you can check out the total wet sexiness that’s going on……and of course all the other offerings at this event.

Both of these events start NOW which means don’t even bother!!! Sorry but let’s be honest it’s gonna be PACKED and LAG HELL so you know what I’m gonna say…LM below for Mina’s main shop because you can try the demo not just for “Sandra” but the other new hairs which I just haven’t gotten around to doing.  You can, of course, type the instructions in chat if you so which but Mina does have a lovely sim and in front of the shop is a beach so go for a swim and try it out that way as well.

I’ve not put the LM to the 2 events because it’s much easier and nicer to see whats for sale before you go and if you check out the Links you can see everything.

PS.  Faith aren’t you grateful I resisted the temptation to name this post “Wet Dreams”?

I was wrong and right at the same time, New Mina Group Gift Hair.

This has turned into a long post but stick with it as there is more info about bargains etc.

The hair I was wearing in my last post is called Irma and when I saw the new GG from Mina Nakamura I would have sworn I was actually wearing the new GG but I was wrong.

This is Carmen the new GG.

Scroll back to my last post and apart from the excellent Dollarbies I’m showing you in that post you will be able to see the comparison between that hair, Irma, and this new one called Carmen which is the newest addition to the Group Gifts.

Mina not only comes up with fresh new designs she often takes what works brill in one hair and incorporates it into another hair to create a new look and that’s why this messy piled up bun with all those straggly bits looked familiar to me but Carmen has a bigger messier bun and even more of those face-framing stragglies.  This is also why I always put the link to Mina’s main shop so you can see if there are other hairs with a similar styling that you actually prefer and you can try them on before you make your mind up as to which one you prefer.  I mean how many times have we bought something and then found something we would have much preferred and kicked ourselves?

Carmen comes free but only for those who are already in the Mina VIP Group and that only cost 200Lds to join.  Although you only get this one shade for Carmen you do get the option of wearing it with or without the stragglies and this shade will never be used in another Carmen or other hair pack, I’m not really sure but it’s a one-off colour.

The other GG’s are a mix of one-off colours ie the Arwen bloodied version or actually full shade packs but you can see and try the demos out for yourself before you decided if it’s worth joining.

There is also a men’s selection in the group gift room and everyone should grab both the male and female hairs as some of them make fine unisex hairs.

I’m in a lot of paid for groups as some of them can be pretty generous but we also know of some where you pay a hefty joining fee and never seem to get anything back well in this case even if you just join the Mina VIP group and snag all of the GG’s inc the men as well you get so much back for your 200Ld investment but if you decide to stay then you also get 10% off each future purchase.

Trust me I would join the Mina VIP group if I had to and as soon as a notice of a new hair comes out I’d be TPing over.

PS.  For those of you on a budget the Gacha’s have some really lovely shop quality hair and you get the full hair colour pack plus some great hat/hair combos so if you’re willing to risk the shade then this is a great way of getting a bargain hair for 100Lds and under and you can even try a demo on before you make your mind up.

SORRY more spam but I think you will find it helpful.  The new GG is on the wall at the LM but the rest of them are in an area to the right of the new stuff wall, at the bottom of the stairs.  You will also notice that the Gacha machines have gone but they haven’t Mina has just replaced them with Gacha boards.  So the super Gacha bargains are still to be had.  Lastly but not least Mina had a big shake up and a lot if not all of her “old hair” is now on the Marketplace.  This isn’t “old” hair as such what it is is these are the hairs that have the 5 shades in the pack as standard but quite a while ago now Mina changed it so that it’s now 10 shades in a pack!  So instead of faffing with the other hairs and inc the colours she’s just slashed the prices to I believe about 125Lds so amazing hair at amazing prices as long as you shop on the MP!

I swear to God my next post will be short!
