I’m a bad girl! (New Mina’s).

This picture is totally arty because I don’t want to show you what this hair looks like I really want you to try it on for yourself and that way you can see how well that veil/shawl fits over the hair.

So basically, this New Mina is for the Salem Event which as you can imagine is full of blood and gore items for you to buy.

As always this newly opened event is packed so I’ve put the link to the Seraphim blog so you can see what’s on offer there and also you will see the picture Mina has used which is a hella lot better than mine lol.

The thing with this shawl/hair is that for most of us it’s not daily wear but if you’re into RL, Gorean, Victorian RP this is just what you have been after. I am kicking myself as I had the perfect outfits to show this off  but I’ve either given them away or they have just disappeared into my invent and it’s a shame as this hair is screaming to be used to create a unique look.

I’m wearing the sheer black lace version only to show you how close the shawl fits over the hair and how much you can see through it but while this is what I would call “high brow” the roughly woven ones screams peasant woman.  You get 8 textures for this shawl and again pop into Mina’s and try it first.

PS.  Right next to the demo of this hair is another brand new wet/dry hair and I didn’t blog it.  When it becomes available for sale in the Mina mainshop I will dust off the picture I took of it and will do a post on it.

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.

Danger Noodle Hunt.(Mention of Freebies).

How could you not love snakes when they’re renamed as “Danger noodles”?

I’ve just had a pleasant time TPing here there and everywhere which is how I ended up at the big Medieval Fantasy Faire. I do know it’s been on for a while but I didn’t know there was a free hunt going on.  So I started to walk and pick up the little “Danger Noodles” on my way.

This is a big event so I’ve managed to get halfway through and I do believe there is a total of 33 gifts to be found, I’ve only found about 6 but I am giving the clothing shops a miss.

But I did treat myself to this from the Lunar Seasonal Designs shop because at 140Lds a bargain and I’m pretty sure I will use it not just as a backdrop but maybe even incorporate it into our sim when we change the seasons esp as it comes with a Menu which supposedly allows you to change a lot of the texturing.  But I’ve not had time to try it.

Because our sim in totally white and I did want to show you the scale I decided just to use one of the poses and take a picture of it as it is in the shop.  Will be logging back inworld later to finish off walking around and then playing with the menu for this and again at 140Lds a bargain.

Find of the year!!!!! (Freebie).

I’m glad I SL when I’m on my own because I make such weird noises when I find amazing FREEBIES.  I squeak, squawk and yes even squeal and this dress made me SQUEAL like a little piggie.

Not the hat though, that’s a previous purchase but it’s amazing and you get it with the hair inc and full-colour packs so I will put the link to where you can purchase that at the end…as long as it’s still for sale.

If you love playing at dressing up then never ever become a blogger because you’re so focused on finding the next thing, and in my case the next freebie, so you find yourself TPing here there and everywhere usually just in the last thing you blogged, occasionally naked and often in a mismatched get-up or in demos looking like a complete noob but occasionally I go into my “fancy assed” folder and dust off one of my gowns and swan around like Lady Muck and this dress is going right into that “fancy assed folder” when I finally and sadly take it off for my next freebie.

BTW I think this dress like the rest is Maitreya fit only but as always one fit seems to fit all.

Here’s the spammy bit so feel free to ignore and scroll to the links.

Hold on to your knickers because I was just about to spend some Lindens and treat myself to a gown from a stall at an event but I decided to check out the MdM shop before I made up my mind as quality like theirs doesn’t come cheaply.   I don’t mind paying for quality the one thing I hate is buying something then finding something else I would have preferred. The shop is not a massive shop but packed with stunning gown after gown after gown and in the outlet section they’re so reasonably priced, I think it was about 225Lds, I was struggling badly to make my mind up and that’s when I spotted the FREE to join group and this gown is the GROUP GIFT!  BAMB mind made up.

Then the guilt crept in.

I initially found the MdM shop through the stall they have out at an event called “SOS Survivors of Suicide”.  On each stall, there is an item set out and the sale and a certain percentage of the sale price is donated to this cause.  I am truly grateful that although I have had enough RL sh*t thrown at me it has never reduced me to the level where suicide has even crossed my mind.  In fact, I am grateful for the sh*t I have had to face because it has made me truly appreciate the lessons it has taught me and made me much more appreciative of what I do have in life.  So this dress was free but the first thing I did when I logged back inworld was to return to this event and donate the cost of this dress.

PS. The hat/hair is from !g0 and it cost me 250Ld.  I can’t remember how many colour packs you get for the hair but I’m pretty sure there is a demo.  It will be easier for you to TP to the “Fantasy” department than walking to it.  There is a TP system, it’s piles of boxes, so just click “Fantasy” and then sit.  You will also see another stunning gown next to where this hat it…I own that one as well.
