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.

A natural beauty.

I’ve just done a simply fabulous picture of me modelling one of the latest Mina hairs, I’ve pulled a fancy pose, photoshopped it to create a very stylish picture and then I thought sod it and I just took this snap of one of the other new Mina hairs just on the sim in the sim setting to show you how simple and good the Mina brand is.

This is how I look in SL, this is one of my go-to outfits, sorry nothing in this post is for a freebie it’s just me rambling on so feel free to ignore the rest of this post.

I wear my PumeC skin which is called”Agatha” about 95% of the time and although I do have a shade pack I have a tendency to stick to the palest one I have and just tart it up with makeup.  The shape is, of course, SLink Physique because you’ve heard me moaning enough about the lack of clothing for that particular fit and my Lelutka head which is the “Greer” one.  I also wear a FACE LIGHT! Yes, I am a face light addict, well not really because the one I use is so light it not only doesn’t cause light pollution for others I actually keep on forgetting I am wearing it.  My version is like Touche Eclat for AVs and if you use Touche Eclat in RL like what I do then you know this is an amazing light reflecting concealer…so try it if you haven’t’ lol.

Mina Nakamura has the knack of taking what works from one hair, restyling it and then incorporating it into a newer hair, so this reminds me of a hair I already own but this one is making the other one look more basic.  The tendrils which frame your face, the extensive colour palette and as with a lot of her new hairs the “style hud” has created yet another hair which will not just last the test of time but is so wearable as I am hoping you can see from this unedited piccie.  If you’re wondering the “style hud” allows you to change which shoulder the ponytail hangs down and if you zoom in closely, in this case, because we’re not inworld when I say “zoom” I mean to press your face closer to your computer screen lol you will be able to see the small bow shaped tie or keep it as a normal hair tie and with the hud you can change the texturing.

This is one of the new hairs and it’s called “Cienna”, Kayla is the one I wore in my last post and “Donna Mae & Donna Sue” are Gacha wins.  Each hair can only be purchased from the events they’re being sold at but as always…..TTDF (Try The Demo First) which is why all I’m giving you is the LM to Mina’s shop but you can also get the TP to the events from there as well.

PS.  Don’t forget to check out the Gacha’s in Mina’s main shop some great hair in there inc hat hairs at 100Lds so a great way to score a great hair at a great price…just take a chance on the colour.

Free everything – but me !

Did the “BOO at Blacklace” hunt this morning – totally free and really good fun. You have to find the pumpkins – lots of dummy ones scattered around but fairly easy really. Now I recall Blacklace from wayyyyyy back in the day, and I have to admit their stuff is still really cool. There are other stores participating so you can find poses and props, clothing and of course lingerie. Im showing the tee and thong (both come with a Hud for additional patterns & colours) that I found and really liked enough to hang on to – fear not you non mesh body peeps! I found plenty of old fashioned clothing layer gear also.

Player has bought me a lot of jewellery lately from a store called Cae, I popped over and found not only is the group free to join but there are heaps of group gifts to bag! I’m wearing one of the necklaces above – really sweet stuff and very well made. Zan has mentioned the Mina new group gift so I wont waffle on – its a paid for group, cant recall how much but the new gift is Sanne, gorgeous long back plait and styling hud for the fluffy front bits.

Scrunchy Wunchy.(Freebie, Cheapie and it’s time to join).

I LOVE AUTUMN!  I nestle like a little hamster in my chair with throws, crafting stuff, a murder program on TV and if I’m lucky a cat on my lap.

Who doesn’t love an oversized woolie which allows you to eat that extra piece of cake or slice of toast in the morning?  This one is FREE from Amiable.  You get 2 versions, orange and this is the yellow colour and although the editing has deepened the yellow I’m shocked that I actually like this shade better than the orange.  Comes in all the mesh fits which in this case isn’t really needed because as you can see from the design it’s a “one size fits all” design.

There are lots of gifts at Amiable which you probably already have had at some stage but if you’ve never been there you’re in for a treat.  If you like this top and want it in a different shade then for 10Lds you can join the Teleporthub group and get this in that shade.

There is a new Group Gift at Mina’s and I DON’T HAVE IT! Whaaaa?

I’m going to have to check this out BUT it looks like the Mina joining fee is now ONLY 200Lds! TBH it was only 250Lds before and considering how much you get even at that price a cheap way to score some great hair AND 10% discount on each purchase.  I’m going to assume it’s going to be at this lower 200Ld for the foreseeable future but “don’t delay join today” urk cringy.

There is a LOT of hair in the group gift area to the right of the event boards, however, the newest GG is at the landing spot so grab that first before you get the rest which you will find to the right of the “event/new boards”.  I don’t actually have the new GG called Sanne but I can see it has 2 of the features Mina’s hairs excel at and that it has a lovely detailed plait going down the back and a “style” hud which allows you to change the way the strands of hair hang and frame your face.

PS.  There is a version of a hair I wear a lot called “Arwen” but this is the bloodied version so perfect if you want a subtle and yet Halloween hair and make sure to check out the rest of the shop as there is other “Bloodied” hair plus although I’ve not worn it yet Blair with it’s exaggerated “wing” style is not only dramatic but sexy and cute at the same time.

UPDATE.  Woah, I’ve just rechecked and Sanne comes with the “Essential Fat Pack” which contains more than just 1 black, 1 brown, 1 blonde etc it contains a MASSIVE 28 shades!

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.

Get Hairy.(Hair Fair & Free Mina).

First the freebie, btw ignore my top as it wasn’t a freebie which is a shame.

But at least you can score this fab free hair from Mina’s shop/stall at the Hair Fair event.

UPDATE.  The “Lily” hair I’m wearing is the one I already own but when I went over to Mina’s shop at this event I spotted that this hair comes not just with a MASSIVE colour Hud but the colour are jaw-dropping so of course I grabbed it but the shade I’m wearing is not one of them.

You may have spotted this hair “Annie” in my past couple of pictures.  When I get a new Mina hair-do I like to wear it for a while just to work out what I think about it and I’ve thought about it and I LOVE IT! But believe it or not this hair and the one in the picture underneath is the SAME HAIR and it’s not just because of the different hair colour.
Annie comes with a “Style Hud” which allows you to change the fringe(bangs) from a sharp cut to the softer style PLUS the back of this hair is done in a French Pleat.  In the picture, I’m wearing the larger more pronounced french pleat so you can see it more as the other version is smaller and smooth against the head.  You will see what I mean if you try the demo out for yourself.  Although I’ve chosen 2 of the most unusual colours when worn in a classic brown, blonde shade this is an elegant updo but this blonde/ginger shade to me is just so good!  Mina does the best ginger hair shades in SL, she calls them “reds” though.

Again look at this shade and whats even better is how it brings out all the work that has been put into the details of this hair.

There is another hair in the Mina shop at this event and yes I have forgotten what that’s called but I do remember that both of these hairs are priced at only 300Lds which is now a standard price BUT what’s not standard is that each colour pack is a massive 30, yes THIRTY shades!  So in the brown pack, you get everything from a light brown to the darkest, the same can be said for the blondes etc.  Years ago before Huds were around I bought a Fat Pack from a shop, long gone now, and I had about 300 shades to choose from which sounds fab but 80% of those shades so almost identical! that’s not the case with Mina’s shade packs.

As Faith has said this for once seems to be a lag-free event and with freebies to be had a nice way to kill some RL time in SL but also think about buying something because a lot of these shops inc Mina’s are donating a percentage to a worthy cause called “Wigs for Kids” which I should imagine we have all heard of.

UPDATE.  I’ll put the link to the blog which shows you all that is for sale, I don’t know if it’s showing you any of the gifts though, it will save you so much time.

Hot DAMN! (Freebie).

The “Damn” is because this lovely gift comes in all standard mesh bodies apart from mine.

Not too bad a fit though and stop squinting and yes you can see the skirt is sheer but I couldn’t get the panties to fit.  Anyhow, this gift from Seniha is a fat pack and you get the bra/top, panties and skirt.  The fatness is in the size of the colour/texture hud.  They come as separates which is always a really nice bonus.

PS.  If you haven’t guest it this is “Sandra” the other wet hair.  Very similar to the newer Raven, not that this hair is old though as Sandra was brought out just a couple of months ago. Although similar we all know that it’s the small things that can make all the difference so again when, or if, you check out the newer Raven wet hair check out Sandra as well because one or both might just be perfect for you.
