Brand spankin new group gift is out at QE Designs! Fantastic two piece of shorts & top. Both are being given in a fatpack! The shorts are just perfect for summer, all frayed and worn with a really revealing rear – I’ll leave that as a surprise for you. The blouse is off the shoulder and super feminine with a contrasting trim which can be changed on the Hud. The group has a small joining fee of $75L and once you’re a member you will have access to the many other group gifts ❤ My hair is out for sale at the latest round of Kustom9, its by Doux, the styling Hud is sold separately for this brand – so one colour pack plus the styling Hud is $500 (the styling Hud $150, colour pack $350)
As promised I logged in and rezzed a copy of the gift basket from my previous post and here it is in all it’s 7 prim glory.
Although the prims are not bad at all it really makes for a much nicer wearable.
Now for the Mina hair.
“Dakota” is the name and with the bead/shell headband/accessories it does have a summer/hippy chic feel to it. There are in fact 2 Dakota’s so if you love the hair but aren’t keen on the accessories then there is a seperate “Dakota” which doesn’t come with the accessories and is a seperate purchase.
Normally I give you the link to Mina’s mainshop but I’m so quick off the mark Mina hasn’t even put the demo out and she’s usually very prompt about those things. This is for sale at the Uber event and you will be able to try the demo out there for sure and of course I’m pretty sure there will be a demo in her mainshop soon as I suspect Uber which is opened today will be packed!
PS. Did you notice that I am wearing the white dress from the hunt in my last post, so pleased I went to get it.
UPDATE: I think I missed it as the demo’s of Dakota are actually out for everyone to try, they’re right at the LM.
Credit first. Mossu has a great offer out and for the 30Ld Joining fee just click and grab that generous 300Ld shop credit offer. If I remember correctly it’s only valid till the 13th so you should spend it by then. Which I suspect is easy to do AND I spotted that there is a range of mens wear as well.
TBH this place was packed so it took a while for things to rezz for me and added to that the credit giver, big poster on the wall, is limited to one person at a time so I had to wait for just the right time to click it to get the credit so you might want to keep on checking for when it’s a bit quieter.
Since I couldn’t get back to the Mossu shop to buy something to show you I threw on this shirt from Bumblebee that I’d bought previously with my free credit. I’ve literally just mentioned this shop is a post so it was just good timing I could show you something else from Bumblebee.
All of those bargains will free up you Lindens for this New Mina hair.
She’s had a few out recently and so I don’t know if I should labour the point about how her new designs come with that big hud of unique colours, the sheerness of the texturing, the hint of a shine to the hair etc etc. So this one has all of that plus this adorable tucked over the ears look! My Lelutka head has the most adorable ears, they’re so cute so for me it’s lovely to have a hair which shows them off.
The way the hair is styled in this picture is how it comes. It is 400Lds but this is starting to become the normal price of quality hair. Yes there are still a lot of hair out there for a cheaper price and some of it is great but the reality, and I’ve always said this, is when it comes to skin and hair you cannot scrimp!
Most of Mina’s hair ages really well and of course her older hairs are lower in price. Most of my “goto” hairs are 3-5 years old and hold up well…however with her new finer texturing and colour packs it is time to look at the really older stock and assess it’s wearability.
The “Style Hud” is a seperate purchase which is only 150Lds. The way it is in the picture is how it come. I’ve put the link to the Seraphim blog so you can scroll down the pictures and see the Mina hair and style hud and everything else which is on sale at the FaMESHed Event.
As always I’ve also put the link to Mina’s mainshop so you can try the demo out firts.
BTW, I spotted 2 of my fav “goto”hairs are in the Lucky Chairs. Myrtle and Riva are just so wearable. Only for Group Members, 200Lds, but if you’ve not seen them you might want to loiter for a while.
The first thing I did when I logged inworld was to swop out the S@bbia skirt for my fav jeans to see if the really good top I’ve just blogged can be worn with them and it’s a really lovely fit. Then I went over to Mina’s as I knew there is a New Group Gift out for us.
“Annie” is one of her newer/older hairs. You do get only the “essentials” colour pack which is a decent size and although I’ve forgotten to count how many I would estimate maybe 18ish?…anyhow you get all the shades you really need from black, brown, blondes and whites. You do also get the style hud which allows you to change the fringe and the bun at the back.
As always though there is a demo even for the group gift so you can check out how it looks on you.
The Mina group does cost, I think, 200Lds to join. It may have gone up by now and even if it has then this hair on it’s own it worth every linden and of course you have a wall of older gifts. If you’re after some bloodied hair for spookiness then there are some on the group gift wall as well.
You also get a 10% off when/if you treat yourself to a new hair. Just make sure to wear your group tag.
I went over to Mangula’s as I suspect there is a new Freebie out for us and the place was EMPTY! I’ve never ever been there when it wasn’t heaving with people grabbing the subscribers gifts so it gave me a chance to look at the boards properly.
Nothing struck me as being new so I just grabbed this simple jeans and jumper set. You can’t see them but I am also wearing the excellent ankle boots so a whole look for zero Lindens.
This top isn’t ringing any bells. You get the top alone, the top with panties attached and a denim skirt. The reason I’m not wearing the skirt is that I was just curious to see if the bodysuit version would fit over the jeans from the first picture…and it does….small things for small minds lol. Most of you will have visited this shop on a reg basis and will have for sure picked up some of the newer, and previously blogged, fatpacks. These are totally shop quality and chances are everyone has them by now.
NOW for the Mina! She’s not only updated her shades/hud and designs she’s updated her shop. I did have a moment of panic thinking she’d updated her lovely house on the hill which I love to use as a backdrop but my second “home sweet home” is still there. The lighting on Mina’s sim is perfect for showing all AV’s off to their best and it boggles me when I go shopping that some shops don’t make sure their windlight settings are set to be the most flattering for their clothes/hair and shop?
This hair is called “Gwen” and she’s the newest offering available @FaMESHed which hasn’t started as yet but I’m sure today is the day it opens it’s doors.
Gwen comes with a style hud which gives you a total of 6 ways to wear this hair but obviously, 3 of those ways are just mirror versions, so you can have the hair scooped back over your left ear, right ear, both ears, in front and fringe or fringeless. This fringe is the perfect “wispiness”, I should have popped a colour base on my hair so that little dot didn’t show but I didn’t think about it and since we all have hair base colours in our mesh head huds it’s something to remember next time.
First, the Freebie which will have been posted in every freebie group as it’s a new Coco Design gift.
Lovely simple floral jacket. The nice touch about this jacket is that it has a slight flare to the bottom which helps it to fit over any/most jeans or skirts you own.
Goes without saying plenty of old, unique and quality gifts out in the shop.
Back to Mina’s. I know I did a post about this yesterday, only to be informed by Faith that the Uber event has been opened for a few days lol. The thing was something was nagging at me, so I popped the hair back on to try to work it out and as soon as I opened the hud it slapped me in the face like the smell of week-old dead fish, NEW colours. As I mentioned to my seasoned eye there are more strands of colour to the hairs which you can see more clearly in this second picture but the colour packs have been tweaked to add more undertones/shades options.
This is why I don’t smile in my pictures but this is how a new Mina hair makes me feel.
Ignore the fangs, they came with my updated Lelutka head and I forgot I was wearing them lol.
I’ve mentioned a “collard” hair before which has a touch of kink to it but this hair is very vanilla and perfectly seasonal.
“Willow” doesn’t come with a “style” hud because the hair tucked under the scarf is the style lol. You do get as standard a massive colour pack for the hair and for the scarf a 7 texture hud with a colour slider. I don’t usually bother with the colour slider if it’s included but for some to be able to change the tone of the texture is a bonus. If you do want to play with the slider then make sure to make a copy of the original before you start fiddling.
Only found at Uber and it’s a standard price of 300-375 and if you do have a fatpack option which is a great deal.
As for the “Bloodyness”, I’m trying to find it. Tiffany is one of Mina’s recent hairs and she’s had a bloodied version out as a “Wanderlust” offer and now it’s been set out in the shop for sale except but so far I’ve not found it. I’m going to have another look for it as obv a bloody hair is something that people want/need for their SL Halloween.
I found Tiffany.
This brown shade is pretty close to my RL colour and seeing the bloody and crusty ends is making me want to itch and go for a shower!
It goes without saying that the lighter the hair the more obvious the blood staining is. This is a pack of I believe five shades and is priced at 250Lds.
This bloody version of Tiffany is to be found on the wall to your left as you enter the Mina Mainshop and she’s just tacked this bloodied version to the normal shades
BUT. Think about checking out the Group Gifts as there are two bloodied hairs there so for 200Lds, I don’t think the Group Gift price has gone up, you can score 2 bloody hairs and more as of course there are plenty of other hairs as well, of course, a chance to win a hair on one of the two Lucky Chairs.
