If Shi hadn’t sent me the note I don’t think I would have gone to the Avatar Fair Event and I’m glad she did as it has everything a Cheap B* could want, Freebies, Dollarbies and a Hunt.
This dress is the hunt prize no 10 and cost 1Lds. As soon as I put it on I knew I had to dust off a Mina veiled hat/hair that I rarely get to wear which is so old I’m not even sure it’s for sale anymore.
The dress is a bit dark but you can still make out the draped top, folds and at the waistline there are buttons. I just thought this will make a great Halloween Widow look but don’t worry as right next to the LM are the freebies for the Avatar Fair group which are more colourful and youthful.
I just had to check and although I couldn’t find this hat/hair in Mina’s shop it is for sale in the Marketplace shop. I was a bit surprised it was still a full priced item but then again it has lasted the test of time and if this is the style you want then it’s price doesn’t matter. Don’t worry you can still try the demo on before you make your mind up.
My fav colour, orange, my fav price, free, a chance to show you the pearly Mina hair so a great start to the day.
There are 2 colours in the pack and lots of fits. I suspect these are last years Halloween gifts from the Punk Justus shop as the dress has “Haunting” in the name. The other colour is a very bold purple.
I think you can see now why I love this hair from Mina’s. I won’t bore you with the details as you can check out my last post.
BTW I don’t love all of Mina’s hairs and not all of Mina’s hairs suit but but I’ve found thats the same with all hair shops the only thing is I’ve found that I do love most of Mina’s hairs and most of Mina’s hairs suit me. It’s why I always say try before you buy and never go by a pretty picture.
When Mina brought out her first “wet” hair it was such a new thing that I bet the sale of it went through the roof. The “wet” version was so popular she actually updated the pack to include a permament wet hair.
Since then she’s come out with more wet look hairs as for those who not only like to take pictures but do like to add more realism to their “OFTD” (outfit of the day) then when you’re in a beachy look then wet hair is just a great finishing touch. What you can’t see in this pictures is the small droplets of water running down the strands of hair.
This hair is called Marsha and is her FLF offer.
This hair is also an interactive hair and with a very simple easy to use hud. You can keep the hair permamently wet or dry or set a timer to change from wet to dry and turn the water droplets off and on.
As ALWAY check out the demo as you will get the fully interactive demo to try. If you want to check out the other wet/dry hair then you will spot a random shower in her main shop and it’s there because the other wet/dry hairs are close by and you can try them out using this shower before you decide which you like best.
OH I’ve just had a thought of course wet hair is for when you shower or over excercise both vertically and horizontally…wink wink lol.
Just a random find from the LUXE Paris Fashion House. The shop group does cost to join and although the gifts are worth that fee I’m still too cheap to get them.
Since it’s been a while I had a nice saunter around the shop which is how I spotted the random box just stood on the floor and it’s marked as a gift.
You get a bikini, sheer coverup skirt, shoes and, NOT this hat, a hat. The hat that comes with this freebie is that frilled bucket-shaped one and with the same colours as the rest of the outfit but I just wanted an excuse to wear my Mina hat as I don’t get to wear it often enough.
For me, it’s a shame that when walking the skirt mesh breaks rather than stretches but I’m loving the colour and pattern and I’ve also tried it without the bikini bottom and it can be worn without and you’re not flashing too much.
At the LM turn to your left and it’s the blue box with the pink bow on the ground. I also spotted close by another gift for another free group, I think it was SL, frees & offers which I didn’t grab as I only spotted it when I went to LM grab so that will be today’s suprise.
I love the “We love Roleplay” event as I often find at this event or shops which lean more towards RP/Gor/Medival often have items of clothing or decor which will make a great feature in any home.
I don’t have a clue how many years this event has run for but it’s been several years now and we all know anniversaries means PRESSIES for all.
As usual a whole mix of items from clothing to decor and as you can see from the title, some are free, some a mere 1Ld and some 10Lds. The ones with a price tag also have a picture to show you what the gift is.
This dress is from the “Silvian Moon Design” stand and I’m pretty sure it was free. A full length gown which to me has a mix of medival gown and Indian sari with the colours and patterns used. The addition of the flexi on the arms is such a nice touch and you can’t really see it in the picture but those flexi bits are also patterned it’s just an example of the quality that has been put into this gown.
I also picked up a medival hat which I was suprised was free as it’s such good quality but I just though that this Mina’s plaited hair suited the outfit better.
So a lot of a mix of things, I’ve got some poses, a flute to play, decor and a couple of outfits.
BTW have you noticed these boards?
You may miss that these posters dotted around the event give you the Landmarks for some of the biggest RP sims. I have never done any RPing as I’ve just not had the time to emerse myself into the gameplay but I can imagine that they can be great places to meet people and have something/somewhere to go in SL. I don’t think all of these LM’s are for Gor, Medival etc as I spotted the poster for a RP sim called Scarlet Ridge which is a “A modern supernatural roleplay experience” and thats going to be my next place to visit.
As it happens as I was wandering around this event there was a male AV astide a magnificent horse and he was in full, I think, medival clothing and he looked amazing. You have to admire when someone has spent time and money to create the SL persona they want to live.
PS. You click on the RP sim poster and buy the landmark for 0Lds.
Blimey where is the time going! It’s already past 3pm, in the UK, and I still haven’t finished my work but it’s time for a coffee break so I did a quick log in as I knew I had this dollarbie outfit from the marketplace to show you.
I don’t know how I missed that Mina has an FLF (Fifty Linden Offer) on! If I hadn’t decided to just pop over I would have missed being able to show Brianna to you.
You get a style hud which changes the side the fringe is swept over to. You can’t really see them because I’ve not taken a picture close enough to show you the (UK) clips or (American) bobby pins which hold that swept fringe in place which is a nice subtle touch.
As always try the demo but a quality hair with a fatpack of shades for 50Ld its a steal.
As for the outfit the more I look at it the more I suspect it’s a reblog. Not sure if it was Faith or I which has shown you this pant/top set but it does no harm to show it, again? You get a lot of fits, comes as separates and have a lovely soft velvet texture to me.
I knew it, I just had to double check and I wasn’t wrong as this Mina hair doesn’t have a picture/LM on the seraphim blog. You will see a little “mia” which of course stands for “Missing in action” and occasionally a shop/event doesn’t get their picture in in time for it to go on the blog so I’m dead chuffed my “pop in” to Mina’s has paid off.
UPDATE: Ha, Faith always says I don’t read her posts, whispers she’s right but I do scroll past the pictures which is why this looked familar as Faith blogged it just last week lol.
As usualy my visit to the LOVE landscaping shop has cost me Lindens but at only 50Lds each item I ain’t complaining.
I went for the super cute Wanderlust discounted item and as nice as they are, little fairies, I changed my mind and bought this gorgeous arch instead.
Lovely delicate leaves with those small bright lights and only 3 or 4 prims. I bought the smaller version but if you do want a larger version there is one for sale for only 50Lds.
Now check out the grasses under it. Another 50Lds for a fat pack of 20 different types and 1 “Summer Breeze Fluff” which are small pale seed heads(?) gently floating by.
Can’t wait till I log in and check out the rest of them and it will be time to start tweaking my landscaping to take advantage of these new grasses.
I also bought the seasonal tree fatpack which I’ve not rezzed yet and you can see that as well as the things I have shown you as there are full examples rezzed at the LOVE LM.
As for the Mina, I don’t have it! I know I did have it so I word searched my invent and then in case I’d mislabelled it I scrolled and scrolled and nope it’s not there. So I’m going to have to assume I’ve deleted it. I don’t really want to bother Mina or her blogger manager to have a new copy sent out and I also don’t want you to miss out on good Mina hair so I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog which covers everything for sale and thats where you can see the Mina hair and the LOVE Fairies
