…and a little bit of that.(2Ld & Freebies)

The go over to the Caverna Obscura shop for this.

This is a shop packed with costumes, outfits for fairy folk, dancers, slaves, Petites and RPers or those who just like to stand out from the crowd. I was pleased I kept on walking around the shop as on the top floor is a small selection of GG’s and this particularly good one is in the little gift box, sorry I can’t remember the colour but it’s tucked in with the freebies.  It did cost 2Lds but the risk paid off.

This particular dress is one of the special “Pride” gifts which you will have seen set out by many shops and it’s something I truly and wholeheartedly support.  But apart from showing your support, you’re actually getting a very pretty little dress, lovely colours and that ruffled hem is top quality.  A lovely touch is the flowers on the shoulder and hip, these are add-ons.  You get so many sizes I’m not even going to list them.

Now I’m LM grabbing I can see that there is a TP system so you can check out the different departments or go straight for the goodies.

I went, I saw, I spent.(Freebie).

Redeux is open for business and for once no freebies, I do think there may be one or two dotted about but it was a shocker as of course, this event is well known for the freebies. TBH I’ve probably not unpacked the freebies not just from the last event but the event before that and even longer ago lol.

I don’t mind, freebies are wonderful but so are the sales at this event.

But of course, I do have a freebie to show you as one of the stalls at the Redeux event is a shop called “Beyond The Mist” which is new to me so of course once I’d finished checking everything out at Redeux then I TPed over.

There are 3 gift boxes randomly place around this small shop, there may be more but I only spotted 3 and the chains I’m wearing are the keepers for me.  Just 2 fits, mine and yours lol.

Once you’ve grabbed the freebie use the TP, boards around the fountain, as there are some impressive builds again in keeping with the RP theme but I particularly liked the Skybox Dungeon and if that was my kink I’d buy it but since I’d only use it as a backdrop I resisted.

PS.  If you love Belle Epoque then this shop always has offers out at Redeux, the 75Ld dress was just so tempting it hurt to TP away but I did console myself with the Belle Epoque Gacha prizes as that is only 25Lds a try.

Someone Complained!(30Ld offer and Freebies).

For all you Vampire Hunters or homeowners out there in SL land here is a 30Ld bargain for you.

This is actually a big box, 6 prims, and you can see it’s stuffed with everything a Professional Vampire Hunter could want or ever need.  There is a closed version as well and only 2 or 3 prims for that one, the tops of both boxes have big silver crosses on them.  It’s mod so I shrank mine down just a little bit which reduced the prims but it was more a case of wanting it shelf size.  This offer is in the entrance area and is only 30Lds! So don’t buy the full priced version that’s in the main body of the shop, although at 99Ld it’s still a bargain.

I’m guessing someone dropped the shop owner a note because last time I was there I couldn’t grab the Group Freebie even though I was wearing the group tag, it happens sometimes, but now I could grab the Freebie which is the Aeroplane Decor on the wall.  The blades? turn or you can stop them.  That randomly placed chair is also a freebie and there is a wooden jewellery stand in the shape of two wooden hands which I do believe is a subscribers gift.

PS.  The chair is adult sized but from this angle, it looks child size.  You’re also supposed to be able to change the colour but I couldn’t and I forgot to try the sitting poses so they will be for you to discover for yourself.

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.

Sorry, most certainly NOT Free.

I’d only just started my trawling of the We ❤ Role-Play event so I don’t know if there are any freebies but I suspect there are on each or most stands a very low priced items you can purchase which in this case wasn’t this dress.

I’ve gone to one of my fav sims, it represents Yorkshire which is a part of the UK that I love to take the picture.  Sorry, I can’t remember the exact price I paid for the dress or even the hat but I think it was about 280Lds for the dress and the hat is one of the token priced gifts so it was only 10Lds.

I was just going to buy the hat and scurry away from temptation but damnit I just had to grab the demo as well and I had to buy it then and there because not only do on you get a stunning gown for both roleplaying or swanning around SL like Lady Muck it comes as SEPARATES!

I’ve not had the chance to try out the jacket, blouse and skirt with other items from my invent but I don’t think it will be hard to find other items to mix and match with it.

I chose the “Garnet” option but there are other colour choices, Maitreya only but as you can see from the design there should be no issues with fitting it and TRY the demo first just to make sure.

You will find this on the SK (Sweet Kajira) stall@We<3 Role-Play Event

PS.  As mentioned the hat is only 10Lds and you get the matching colour band to go with all of the gowns.

UPDATE.  The sim is down.  Hopefully not for too long as even I want to get back to check out the rest.

A Classy AF Sunday.(Free and not Free).

I always like to make it clear upfront that this first item is NOT the freebie and now let the rambling start….

SL is like RL, in that in RL I am a bargain hunter, the reduced food section in the supermarket, charity shops, Poundland and I eBay like a B*tch.  My scrimping knows no bounds and I’ve even been checking our Aliexpress for fun and cheap stuff…yes that is an actual web site.

But I save to spend and that applies to my SL life.  So when I saw there is a sale on at the Maison de Montgelas (MdM) shop I think, my cold cheap heart skipped a beat.

OK at just under 350Lds for this dress, not exactly cheap but when you see the fit, quality, design, texture and on and on it’s worth it.  I spent forever trying the demos on but in the end only bought this one as it looks like there is going to be not just a new shop but new stock and I can’t wait to see any new items.

This dress is actually one of the more understated dresses  You get two versions of it, this one where the jacket and overskirt at the back are a light green.  There is a lovely sash belt as well with a big bow. The second version has the jacket and overskirt all the same cream shade but the sash belt remains coloured.  You only get a Maitreya fits but as you can see I had no issues.  Again there are demos for you to try on and many other designs.

But even if you’re on a zero budget I will reblog this excellent free group gift for you in case you’ve not seen it before..

I’m just showing you the back as you can guess how good the front looks and this way you can see an example of the detailing.

The hats were another couple of things I treated myself to as they were just 120Lds.  Unlike the dresses, you don’t get demos for the hats but they are editable to a certain degree. I am lucky in that I have the perfect hat/hair which is designed just for this style. I will do a post about that next because although that is not a freebie I think some things are just worth paying for and if you want to swan around SL like a lady then you simply have to invest.

PS.  Forgot to mention that there is also a big selection of period costumes for men, they haven’t compromised on the cut, design, texturing etc for those either.

Harshlands Hunt (Free)

Scooted over to see the Harshlands Anniversary hunt this morning – gosh I’ve not been there before and I have definately been missing out. Free hunt prizes to celebrate the stores 5th anniversary, you’re looking for a golden V and they are pretty hard to find – I got 2 after searching for ages. MY fav prize out of the two I nabbed is this superb wagon – just 3Li and so realistic. The sim itself is incredibly pretty, and weird, and unusual – seriously if you don’t wanna hunt just go for a wander around – I’m heading back when I have more time just to sight see.
