Taking a landscaping break because I seriously think I’m starting to suffer from snow blindness.
I was most surprised that Amiable was so quiet since it has a New GG out plus a sale going on but it made my quick visit nice and lag free.
Most people will recognise the jumper and skirt and maybe the bag although I don’t recognise the bag but then again I don’t usually snag accessories. Amiable keeps out all of the old GG’s so there is now quite a few of them and most people will probably have or still have some in their invent but the scarf is deffo new. You get 2 versions, rigged and unrigged which is pretty good because this thing is “mahoosive” and the unrigged version has a simple sizing menu in it.
I will say I had wanted to show you the very pretty polka dot skirt but it didn’t really go with the look I was trying to create but when you’re there just grab away.
Anyhow it was a nice break so I’m feeling refreshed enough to start landscaping again.
Neve are at the latest round of TLC yippeee! Up for grabs is the brand-spankin new “undone” shirt and “Nashville” skirt – they come in a ton of options, each pack giving endless choices! I chose the plaid shirt (yes, I’m so traditional) and the soft pink denim. Now the clever thing is you can change a lot of the trimmings – such as the belt, the lace that edges the skirt hemline etc. I was totally flummoxed on the skirt, as I realllllly loved the lacey covered ones too! Shirt comes in plaids,plains and pastels – something for everyone ❤ Newwww hair alert! This is “Asago” from Argrace – saw it in the notice,didn’t try the demo,BOOM bought! You know how it is with some stores like Neve & Argrace? Something new – it’s a given it will fit and you will love it – tadah! (btw I am not advocating not to try demo’s!) Thanks Neve team!
Urgh part of me cringes slightly putting the “Freebie” into the title but you know what? We go on, life goes on, nothing changes apart from we become stronger.
So back to normality and in my case being a Cheap B*.
I made a “boo boo”. I did a post a short time ago about a New Mina called Shelly which is available at the Ultra & Kinky Event and I gave the LM to the Satelite Mina shop which is on the sim with this event but to get Shelly follow the new LM which will take you right to the building that contains not only the new hair BUT a FREE Mina! (as well as so many other gifts which of course I grabbed like mad).
This one is not just a new blonde but has been designed to fit over collars. This is why I deliberately chose this top because as you can see it’s pretty darn thick and bulky, normally I would stay clear of this style of top and yet apart from a minimum break through it fits amazingly well. You get 3 sizes but the sizes don’t change the head size just the size of the way the hair hangs down.
Actually just before I clicked “publish” I thought “wait a mo” because a lot of the long Mina hairs already come in different sizes but the difference is that they’re more “boob” sizes so basically you get “BB”,”SB” or “NB” sizes in any case and not many other hair designers offer this and neither do they offer the 2 meshes ie “Materials” and “Non Materials”. More about that at another time because RL is calling me. So lots of Freebies at Ultra inc this Mina.
PS. The top is one of the Group Gifts from Bijou from my last post but didn’t show you so check that post out as well.
It’s very rare for me to find a gown type dress that I like – but I have! Not only is it pretty ravishing but it’s also just $1L – mmhmm, mesh body sizes included and it just fits SO purrrfectly – keeper for moi. Its Serendipitys gift in the TBYOH hunt- hint is *its sitting on a suitcase* – you’re looking for a gold star – verrrry easy to find! (thank goodness)
My gorgeous jewellery is by RealEvil, I actually found it on the market place but as I’m sooper nosey I teleported over to the inworld store – glad I did because there was a stash of group gifts (no join fee hurrah) . I was tempted by the hand & nails set while I was there – gawd its pretty – check out the MP link below to see the info and the enorrrrrmous Hud to customise the set. It was a considered purchase for me as I’m a bit broke atm, but at $499L well worth it. Oh! the hair I’m wearing is by Kokolores and will be available at the new round of Hairology, it opens on the 10th March. This pretty upswept style is called “Melina” and I just adore the bow shape made of the hair!
I must be honest since most of the notices about this event,Indie Teepee, were aimed towards the live performances,art, poetry etc and because I’m a little SL wallflower, ok an unsociable biatch, I didn’t pay it much attention which would have been a damned shame as it’s packed with not just FREEBIES but so much bloddy temptation and you know it takes a lot to tempt me.
This as you can see is a stunning sim/windlight setting and as soon as you TP in when you’re greeted with this you know you’re in for a treat. At the landing point there is a sign for you to click to grab a Hud which allows you easy TP to all the different areas plus a small package of gifts.
Thats me just taking a break in one of the performance tents. BTW The shoes are from my last post but I didn’t do a picture of them and of course so are the shorts which as I said look great teamed up with other items from your invent.
OK now for the Freebies or rather not because a lot of the stalls have little brown crates on them and of course I snagged as much as I could see and I also treated myself to some lovely Gacha prizes but in all honesty way too many items to be able to show you and since this event is closed on the 24th of this month you still have plenty of time to go grab but I don’t want to delay this post just to take more piccies.
Plus think of all the lovely surprises you will have.
However if you’re not wanting to cave in and spend Lindens then don’t go. As a hardened miser I’ve got my eye on 2 items which do come with a hefty price tag but OMG they’re soooooo good, the designers well deserve the Lindens for such quality work. My only problem wasn’t the price tag but the thought of “would I really use them” so before I clicked and bought and then had buyers remorse for yet another item to be buried in my invent I decided to log off and have a think about it.
PS Forgot to say that there is everything from shoes to poses, horns to homes so something for everyone.
So little time so much to wear. Faith was so busy setting up her new Scarlet Creative home she completely ignored me so I took this opportunity to take a quick snap of one of the new Spring collection items from FATEwear. It’s just the shorts that come from the new collection but the shirt, called Edward, is of course one of Damien’s classics. The shorts are called Gus and are in the main entrance along with the rest of the new collection. I couldn’t help but think that the Void colour would suit the shirt to make a casual office look but there are much more colour options from this dark grey to pink and all the shades in between. The one thing I did notice when I spend time trying so much on is how well you can mix and match ALL of his range so when I’m next inworld I’ll definately be brightening up my look and showing you more of his excellent texturing and styling.
Popping back in because I forgot to mention that these shorts come with a belt as well which is a small and yet important detail because it just finishes off the look makes the shorts go from plain shorts to stylish shorts..back to RL now but remember Demos for everything so worth spending some time trying them all on.
New to FATEwear is a much appreciated HUD which even to a simple soul like myself is easy to use. With this hud you now have a much greater variety of colour choices. Basically this means you can change the colour of almost everything you wear and I was rereading the description of how the HUD works and noticed this “The HUD will most likely be set by default to the proper tab and options for the FATEpack you purchased, but you can actually use the same HUD for all FATEpack items that come with a scripted version of the product.” So basically if you have other items of clothing from FATEwear and it’s scripted then you should be able to change the colour. Personally I can’t wait to see what I have and try it out.
So of course you get all the sizes, (a good way to cut down on your invent is to delete the sizes you know you will never use but make sure you know that you won’t want that XXL or XS at a later date) and of course you get the layering which in this case is the long jacket, pants and the shirt jacket tie combo underneath. This of course allows you to mix and match from items already in your invent. The hud that now comes with this outfit attached itself to the bottom right hand of your screen which if your AO is there will remove it but it’s easy to reposition the hud anywhere on your screen so that s not exactly an issue. So easy to use and you have such a big choice of colours each item can be coloured individually. So in the 2 pictures the same clothes but different colour choices.
Just spotted this in the note that comes with “Dave”, thats what this new outfit is called, and although I’ve not had time to test it out but it’s going to be interesting to see what else I have from FATEwear that I can use this on.
Vanity shot. As always I popped over to Derailed to preen and pose. A lovely and welcoming sim. Everytime I visit and I visit a lot there is something new such as this cabin/stable/home. Plenty of photo and pose potential or of course just a place to hang out with some friends. There is a shop on the sim which is well worth a visit for some great poses (I have them all) and a selection of interesting odds n sods.
