Look Away Faith!

I was checking out some old LMs for a place to take some pictures and I stumbled on this absolutely simple and yet stunning rental sim.

The sim  is called Baja Norte and it’s a blogger, moocher, beach lover, renters delight.  I haven’t rented a property here because for a small fee of 250Lds you can join the Baja Norte group and not only use the stunning decor items but also rezz your own props and poses if you feel the need to.   It would be good to join as the fee which is a one off helps towards this great sim but it’s not compulsory as you are free to use the facilities even if you’re not a group member.

Obviously it goes without saying if you do decide to join the group so you can rezz poses and props to watch the prims! and OMG clean up after yourself! Faith and I used to run a very successful and enjoyable rental sim but the cleaning up of other people’s prims was a pain in the bum.

Although there is more than enough places for people just to sit and chat and chill  and so you may never need or want to rezz anything.

I had a mooch around the homes the note that is  sent out does ask you not to enter a rented property which goes without saying but there are some vacancies esp the ones on the top of the hill.  At 250 a week these are bargain prices homes and although you only get 50Prims you will just not need them at all.  The whole sim is your playground and all you need is a few prims for some personal items.

Now I’m not a 100% sure if all of the homes come furnished already I’m pretty sure this was one of the Vacant homes and this is the standard to expect, it’s all quality items.  I’ll be back and I’ll have a recheck.

All these photos were taken in the sims own Windlight setting which is subtle moody and beachy at the same time, you of course can use whatever setting you want.

As I said the reason I’m not going to rent a home here is because I’m going to join the Baja Norte group and  now since our own sim is very much Autumnal and grassy I  have somewhere to flash the flesh and surf. This is a busy sim with plenty of people wandering, sitting and probably mugging for the camera and yet it is so quiet and people are just having a relaxing and fun time.  I sat on a log with my new log and even though there was 2 male AVs near to me we just sat and did our own thing.  If I didn’t rent my own sim I’d move here  and I know fine well Faith would also in a heartbeat.

Must mention the brilliant person behind all of this because she won’t be making money from the rentals here as she’s asking for so little so basically she’s done this just for the joy of giving to people in SL.  Lauren Bentham is her name and her surname might be familiar to a lot of people because she’s the owner of Bentham Manor and more.  I can’t believe that high is the sky is a packed shop/forest/woodland/build of spooky and ethereal items to buy for your home although most things are set out in a themed setting ie a spooky woodland most of what you see is for sale but check out her Flickr link as a picture shows you much better than I can write.

Save me.

jaws

I’m thinking of entering this picture into a comp so I’ve gone a bit wild with the lighting and special effects but I think it looks great even if I don’t win.

Creep

Couldn’t resist using this one as well because I don’t think Faith even noticed me creeping on her.

 

fangs

In the pack you have a total of 5 expressions, smile, neutral, frown, subtle and FangB and all come with bloodied and unbloodied versions and for the lady freaks a set for male and female.  Although there is a warning that some editing skills maybe needed the teeth fitted me perfectly but even if they didn’t any editing needed would be very basic so no one should have any problems.  Top picture shows the bloody smile the next is the unbloodied version and of course the bottom is the bloody fangs.

I must confess I’ve just realised that in my invent all I seem to have now is my Deadwool suit and the rest is FATEwear which is what I’m wearing in this picture.  It basically cannot be beaten for ease of wear and pure quality and now I even have “his” eyes LOL.  Sadly I just can’t take a decent picture of them so my words will have to suffice.  With the eyes you get a MASSIVE choice Hud.  I spent so much time fiddling with the settings and ok I really need to spend more time with it to get the best out of his new eyes because you can customise them to exactly how you want your eyes to look.  From deep pools of chocolate to OMG fricken teeth eyes!!!  I am wearing them in my pictures but I opted out and just used one of the preset ones.  I will try to take a close up but since I inevitable end up with the camera in my head it might be beyond my capabilities.

AH brilliant, if you check out the last link you will see that Damien has put out a YouTube vid to show you all the benefits of his eyes.  Will definitely be watching that with interest and it’s so handy so you can see exactly what you’re getting much clearer than a single photo can ever show.

Smashing Pumpkins (Freebies,Gachas and Spooks).

HangStart at the bottom of this sim and work your way up.  Loads of great spooky places to hang around in (boom boom) lots of props and poses and great settings and Pumpkins. When you see a pumpkin, and there are many of them dotted all around the sim, sit on it (best turn off your AO for this) and you get to punch it’s lights out and you will either get a pressie, a LM to a pressie or strike out and get nothing but a puff of green smoke.  Then half way up you come to the Redrum and Death Row Design Halloween Gacha event.  Lots of in theme gacha items from some great SL shops but more than that again some more great posing potential, stalls and freak shows to simply enjoy.

Next to this prop is a cage with freeness which inc this skeleton (there was also a couple of outfits but if I remember correctly they were women s so I didn’t open them).  I didn’t grab all the freebies but got this and the Redrum stuff which inc bullet wounds and an autopsy set up.

Snapshot_075This is half way up but if you walk all the way to the top of the hill you will find a sign post one way is Redrum and even further down what looks like a small village made up of small shops, and the other way is DRD (Death Row Design).  I did notice that Redrum has a whole row of LCs and MM boards so when I log in to get LMs and other things I will be plonking myself in front of them to see what I can get although most items do seem to for women there is a couple of male items.

So FREAKING SIMPLE (SAH Freebie)

Honestly if you look closely you can see me having a swing in the middle of all those lights but what the heck..artistic licence rules and I just love the twinkly lights.

As it happens I almost didn’t go for the hunt item because not only do I have swings aplenty but because I know Catnip stocks some great stuff (I know because I have quite a few items and I can recommend their belts for amusement and details) I figured I would swing by (joke geddit) and pick it up.  The swing has a nice flow on it and looks great but an added plus for me is when you jump of it slowly slows down so none of that annoyance trying to click on it to stop.  So this is the Suicide Awareness Hunt item and I say go for it because if you have  a tree and no tree swing then shame on you.

Now this is the “FREAKING SIMPLE” because how simple and yet amazing does this floating clock look?  3 prims and an all so cheap price of 70lds and what an amazing touch for your home or land. I almost missed it! A good lesson to search out every nook and cranny because downstairs you will see a chair in front of a fireplace and an invitation for you to sit..SIT! because you’re then tped to the room next door and it’s an Alice In Wonderland shopping experience.  You can transform your home into an insane world of painting white roses red or sitting down to a Mad Hatters tea party and this is also where you find this floating clock. Remember only 3 prims! CatNip is a shop of the weird, wonderful, freaky and downstairs a bit of kink I highly recommend a visit.
The Sim.  I’m giving you 2 LMs the first is for the landing area and I recommend you land here and saunter down to the carnival through the wooded area and don’t mind the corpses they’re dead and can’t hurt you.  This is a carnival themed sim and in SL that means dark, scary and gaudy and they have created not only a great shopping experience with all the tents set up as shops but loads of carnival games and a big wheel and just a damned good place to visit.

My New BBF

Last year I placed a Dead Nun under Faiths bed this year my newest BBF (zombie girl) stood guard at the head of her bed (until Faith found her and sent her packing back to me).

Love these Bats.  They’re in a rezzer so very prim light and because they’re a lightly luminous grey colour they really stand out.  You can change the amount that are rezzed and the area they cover but best of all even though they make noises it’s not so invasive that the first thing you do is mute them.  Both of these items come from Pondlife who have a special area set up for Halloween items and they’ve done good everything from cauldrons to GHOST FISH! if you have water on your land.  So many really good quality, well textured, reasonably priced and primmed items.   My BBF only cost 79Lds! and the bats 149.

Special mention to the sim that I took this photo on, Bay of  Surreality.  There are a number of shops there so you can combine a mix of shopping with posing like ghoul in the graveyard or loitering on a moody misty shore line.  A lot of effort has gone into making this sim very atmospheric.

Got the hair, got the latex dripped outfit, kick ass shoes and eye scratching claws all I need now is an invite to a Halloween party…hint HINT!!

Not much into Latex myself a very short note came thought to me and as soon as I saw the single picture of  Cursed I had to have it.  250Lds for a great shiny black dripped latex shocking sexy and scary look.  AtaMe is the name of the shop which is a damned fine name because in these clothes people will be looking AtaMe.

Oops almost forgot a manicure.  I’ve had these ni.Ju claws for years and I have never waited till Halloween to wear them.  Sometimes when your dressed up and looking all SL trendy it’s nice to have something that makes people zoom in on you and these claws have never failed.  This is a small shop and it’s PACKED with great stuff.  Lots of piercings and scary things.  These claws are a perfect example.  Only 120 and wear them often.  Bought myself a giant colour changing puddle and it comes with a hud so you can even change the colours and it looks great on my little plot of land.  As I’s tying this I’m stood at the LBs upstairs and not only do they change what the prize is the letters change ever 3 mins so as I’ve been stood here I’ve won quite a few items and indulged in the Gatcha.
