I’m a Cheap Quickie.

LOL How pervy does that title look but OMG it looks like we may have some actual Summer sunshine so I’m keeping this lovely hair wreath post quick and simple so I can get my pale and insipid behind outside and get some fresh air!

This is actually a Gacha win and only 10Lds a pop, more than happy with the colour choices and with the violet one I won.

quick

OK What I’m not showing you is the Group Gift from Belle Epoque, if I remember correctly it is a Medival style gown, really nice and quality but definately one for the RPers in SL.

Special mention to the delivery box it comes in or in this case a little 2 prim plant in a pot.  I remember so well the time whatever you bought was sent to you in a prim cube but now sometimes the packaging is almost as good as the item inside.  So you get this lovely wreath for just 10Lds and the GG and still end up with 2 lovely and low primmed decor items.

Bakc again!, now that the sun has gone behind a cloud and there is a lot of them I’ve come back in and snapped a quick shot of the plant, tbh I also just wanted to double-check it was as good as I remembered it so I quick rezzed it on my platform in my Nams setting and Yup a real nice little pot plant for your home.

Lucky Me(Freebie)&Gacha……..OOO Update.

I spent some time at a beautiful shopping sim but sadly didn’t find any freebies:-( however I did spot a rug in one of the shops being used as a decor item and I knew it would be perfect for my home so I clicked and got the details and TPed over to Damian Kleiner’s shop, Aisling  and WOO HOO turns out it’s a FREEBIE! I love it when that happens.

crossbluerug2

Yet again I’m rearranging my beloved home it’s an addiction.  Faith knows I have a house/skybox/shed/greenhouse and on and on addiction and over the years I’ve lived in many styles of home from a tiny Japanese shoe box sized apartment to a grand skybox but this home from LISP has been the longest lasting home ever! So one day when I finally finish my fiddling with it I will show you some pretty pictures.

Back to the rug.  A freebie from Aisling and I love it, it’s just what I was after and check out this lovely touch, even with this cute critter and the shadow this rug is only 1Prim! There’s actually more Freebies inc some very realistic fur rugs.

crossbluerug

Aisling is a really lovely shop and although it’s aimed towards the RPing community there is some stunning items for everyone here.  I tried out a bath which was not only beautiful and unique the poses in it were as well, a rather sexy undressing AO where the man can undress the woman and visa versa (looked a bit sad doing that on my own some LOL) but it did look very smooth and sexy.

The Freebies, I also picked up some very realistic animal skin rugs as well, are in the main landing area.  To get to the other departments you have to use the TP’s set into the floor.  A very easy system and it really is worth checking out the different departments.

crossbluepaper

I of course went straight to the Gacha Dept and for 50Lds won this.  I should have held off taking the picture for just a second as the writing on the paper is much crisper than is shown but you can see from the ashtray alone how sharp it is.  Such detail even down to the heat spot on the ashtray.  Everything apart from the cup planter in the background is linked and it’s only a SINGLE PRIM! 50Lds a go on this Gacha and as I’ve said I would have been happy with anything from it and I know damned well that when I go back to grab the LM I’ll take a chance on it again (I did go back and I won an equally as brill waste basket).

Special mention to the builds here.  As I’ve said I’m addicted to houses but the more rustic RPing ones always leave me a bot cold as they just don’t seem to work for me that is but there are some of the best rustic farm houses/homes I’ve ever seen here.  The texturing is excellent and the prim count and price more than reasonable even as a non RPer I’d still be so tempted.

PS the mouse/rats name is Mickey.

UPDATE.  Can’t believe I almost missed out these brill FREEBIES from Aisling.

plant1

I just quickly  rezzed a few of them on the table which is why you can see the shadow over the side of the table but I really wanted to get this posted before I left SL.

plant2

I had one of these once but it went the same way as most of my house plants, died slowly but surely.  I’ve done nothing to the picture apart from using my sim setting and look at that detail and texturing and not only is this an anniversary freebie but each plant is only a single prim!

Again a Freebie from Aisling which is why I’m adding it to this post at the last minute.  You get them in the same place as the other freebies but not on the wall, you will see a large wood planter with these in it on the floor next to the wall.  Just click and you get the whole lot, I think about5-6 different colours, copy and at a single prim so usable.

News to me (Man & Womans Freebie).

I a notice through from “Fameshed” and I actually read it for a change, I never realised that a Free Group Gift is set out for visitors  There is a womans and mens gift if I remember the womans is a rather nice blouse but of course it was the male one I was interested in.  You will find the Group inviter and the Gifts just inside the gate just where you rezz so even if the place is packed you should be able to find it.

A complete and utter nerd look.  This includes the plaid trousers, shirt and jumper and damn sorry I should have paid more attention before I logged out but I’m pretty sure you have a choice of long and short pants and the shirt can be worn on its own or with the jumper or the jumper on its own so a hell of a lot for the cost of nothing.

Teacher1

Close up of the table because Zan’s had this for ages but has been so lazy as she’s never got around to posting about it so I thought I’d use it as a prop.

desk

This is it in situ in one of her many sheds, sorry the lighting is a bit dark but the texturing is excellent.  The whole thing is one piece so no fiddling with bits, the flame on the burners actually flickers, all those papers, vials, powers etc all come to a MASSIVE……………..2prims.   Pretty unbelievable but yes just 2 measly prims for all of that.

I have to say that although I like these pictures I’ve managed to make everything look pretty dark, the trousers for example you can’t see the pattern at all…..My Bad:-)

I’ve put the link for Pucca’s Marketplace shop but you really have to see his stuff inworld to be able to appreciate the amazing quality of the texturing.  Very RPing with cages, weapons and outfit but a whole mix of time periods so a pair of futuristic glasses are next to a Warriors cod piece.

Steaming.

cocaI had this demo in my invent for a pretty long time but decided to unpack and throw it out but to my surprise I love it.  Comes from COCO Designs and although cocoro Lemon doesn’t do many items of male clothing what she does do is unique to her.

coco

This is a “onsie” but not in the sense of the sleeping sort, this is a complete outfit only the hat and goggles are separates whats joined is the waist coat, shirt, tie, pants and boots are all in one.  Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the boots but you can just about see the top of them.  Big chunky work mens boots a mixture of  leather and steel toe caps.  A very Steam Punk look.  Comes with Demo and even a suggested shape but that shape was not unsimilar to my own so I’ve just used mine.

Group Gifts, lots of really great ones but sadly only for the girls.

New Sn@tch (Group Gift)

Sn@tch again but then again Sn@tch is one of the best shops in SL.  A big shop packed with the best non mesh in SL.  Everything from the basics to the RPing outfit.  There isn’t many shops in SL which I will buy non mesh items from and Sn@tch is one of them due to their texturing and wearability (and price) being second to none. That of course doesn’t mean Sn@tch lags behind in the Mesh or Lola dept though there is Sn@tch for all tastes..Boom Boom.

TulipThis is their VIP freebie and it’s called Helena and not only do you get all the mesh sizes but 5 colours, Ice, Ivory,Mint, Rose and White. Now I’ve been a Sn@tch VIP for so long  I can’t remember how much it cost but one thing for sure I’ve received my moneys worth back in spades.  Too many “VIP” groups seem to take your money and you never seem to get anything but that is not the case with Sn@tch.   Murderdoll (ivey.deschanel) NEVER forgets her fans because not only do they put out shop quality gifts because  but because they regularly update their LBs, Riot Venders and the free to anyone gifts (usually placed on the table in the entrance).   If you have a free group space then join Sn@tch if you have some Lindens spare then become a VIP because the group is chatty (but not intrusively so), friendly, helpful and once that call goes out everyone comes running to lower the riot boards to as low as they go even if they don’t want the items themselves but just to help out others.  The hangout area where the boards are also had Seven Seas fishing and is nearly always busy so the boards may not have you initial on it but you won’t have to wait too long and you can end up with a whole wardrobe. However it has to be said Sn@tch isn’t expensive and best of all as standard you get full colour packs as standard! and usually (not Riot Vend or LBs) they’re non copy and trans so you can be a generous friend and donate those colours you may not be keen on or even go halves with a friend and share the cost of an outfit.

Surfers in Space

As soon as I saw the new outfit from AtaMe I knew exactly where I was heading.  The Doomed Ship is a RP sim (can it be called a sim when everything is in the sky?).  This is a stunning, dark and brooding ship floating in the sky.  There is a background story but I’ve deleted the note, silly me, but in all honesty if your not into hard core RP then I’m sure no one minds if you mooch around enjoying the amazing graphics and design that has gone into this place but as a sign of respect to the amazing designers and people who do use this place to RP then dig out a suitable look and as long as you don’t bother anyone in RP mode I’m sure no one will mind.

Space dirt1

When you land you’ve given the choice to wear a hud and I would accept it.  It helps align you camera view so as you wander through the endless corridors or the cramped loading docks etc you’re camera angle is set to a great position.  The hud also is handy if you wish to throw yourself into the RPing aspect which I haven’t tried yet.  Don’t worry nothing dropped off when I wore it.

Space dirt 4

To get to the different levels you have to use a lift.  Click the lit panel on the side and it does take a little while for it to turn up and when it does you “sit” in the lift not walk into it.  Then click the panel to go to which ever level you wish to see.

Space dirt3This is not an “adult” RP but there are crew quarters and some fantasies can be played out in full (privacy not a guarantee though).

Crew loungeHonestly I could spend forever here taking photos and in this case I just sat on one of the stools (just out of camera angle) and admire the atmosphere.  This is the crew lounge and what you can’t see is the vast window overlooking stars and planets.

Space dirtThis is the AtaMe outfit which made me think of the Doomed Ship.  I’m wearing the non latex version because it is Lola Boob compatible and then decided not to wear the lolas for some reason. This is the Xendra Snow. A full leather look from the bikini to the leggings and arms. Chained necklace and belt complete the look. Blakc and white versions in the leather look but check out the other part of the shop and you will find the same design is wet looking shiny latex. I also couldn’t help but notice Milu Laval has now added full body tattoos to her shop.

Squinternet Larnia

HatSome people manage to pick the best AV names and Squinternet Larnia is one of them but she maybe better know for her shop Donna Flora. If you don’t know that name you’d better get used to it because there is a big push of Slers and others promoting her shop to raise funds for Squinternet.  The reason being is that behind our perfect AVs are equally beautiful but flawed real humans and sometimes life bites you on the butt.  Sadly Squinternet is not well and although we cannot be there as a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand in the home, a picker up of shopping and a bit of a laugh to take her mind off life’s troubles we can however indulge in a bit of retail therapy and in return Squinternet gets a little bit of extra money to go towards helping making life a little bit nicer.  This ISN’T a charity call or even worse a pity call because Squinernet has something a lot of us can never offer and that’s a shop of amazing designs, old, new, retro, funky, out there, basics, period pieces, hats, gems & Jewels and don’t get me started on the shoes!

Hat1So far all I have bought is this hat and that’s only because I just cannot make up my mind on what else to get every time wander around her large beautiful shop I mentally tag everything I want.  Not the cheapest of clothes but honestly you’re not paying for a bog standard repackaged mundane stuff.  Each outfit is well crafted beautifully textured, unique and so feminine.

OH! so I went back to do this write up and grab the LMs and finally chose some other lovelies to treat myself to and this hat has a matching outfit to go with it.  I somehow resisted this but did treat myself to some ribboned shoes and a framed corset dress so watch out for those in my next blogg.

Don’t be put off my the cost! You pay for quality for sure but click around and she does have items from as little as 60Lds and just outside the front door through the gates are the dollarbies and old gifties.
