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.
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
The gifts at Redeux that is. I know that for the past number of the Redeux events the gifts have been missing but not the bargains and discounts which is why I would still go. Now it is it’s 4th Anniversary not only are the bargains and discounts still there but also so many FREEBIES.
So far I’ve only done about half of this event before I decided I’d got enough and it was starting to get a bit busy, laggy. I didn’t just get freebies I actually bought 1 top and played 4 Gacha’s ( already reboxed up lol) and then decided it was time to take a break.
From a brief glance at what I picked up there is a real nice mix of items with a few more clothing items than usual. The Zoom dress is rather interesting but this Le Fil Casse top and skirt was just too pretty to not show you.
The event goes on till the 21st so plenty of time and I will return when it’s calmed down.
As for the FLF mention it’s a MINA hair! Tiffany is not a hair I wear often for no other reason than “just because” lol. I don’t have time to show it to you, although if I do get some time later then I most certainly will and I may even show you the top I bought from Redeux as for only 50Lds it may tempt you as well. As usual I’ve put a link to her main shop and one for the Seraphim blog so you can see a picture of Tiffany, the colour palettes and the style hud you get for just 50Lds.
As you can see from the poster outside of the Tachinni shop it too has an Easter Egg Hunt going on. I thought you had to collect all 12 eggs to earn the shop credit happily I was wrong as each egg has a different value, 20Ld-55Ld and each adds to your credit. So far I’ve collected 10 which gives me more than enough to treat myself to something and I do really like the Tachinni range.
I thought the Tachinni group cost 99Ld to join which is totally worth it but it turns out it’s only 15Lds so I don’t know if it’s been reduced for a short time as a treat or it has been at that price for a while. I also don’t know if you have to be in the Tachinni group to join the hunt but I do suspect is a free hunt.
TAKE NOTE, the credit has to be used up by the 16th.
If you do join the Tachinni group then there are 2 gifts out and I already had this bikini in my invent so its a reblog but it’s also an excuse to show off my wet hair.
This hair is called Sandra and of naturally it’s a Mina hair.
Sandra was the first ever interactive wet/dry hair that Mina created. The hair is dry then you wet it by popping in a shower/pool etc and either set the timer to return it to a dry state or wear the hairdryer and yup dry your hair that way. Super fun but the wet hair provided to be so popular she updated the hair pack to include this permamently wet look.
You cannot really see it too well but drops of water run down your hair and if you squint at my hip and inner thigh you can actually see a couple of the droplets.
Sandra was the first wet hair and for me still the best for my face, there are 2 other wet/dry hairs and just look for the shower in Mina’s mainshop as even the demos are interactive.
OK enough blab for now.
Tachinni. (It’s behind you if you’re facing “Vision” lol).
