Creeping Pays. Just an update & a little bit spend y& reminder of freebie.

Because I am obviously addicted to SL and spend way too much time inworld I sometimes come across issues with vendors ie things not set for sale, group invites not working, borked LMs etc Which brings me back to a recent post about a shop called B-Made and their new Group Gift.  The LM was dumping our sorry asses into the river but now, Woo Hoo, it takes you right to the entrance.

Anyhow when I do find an inworld issue I always drop the seller a little note as I just think they would prefer to know rather than not and end losing any potential sales all because of an easy to fix issues. I NEVER expect anything in return but in this case, Ben Lev the owner/creator of B-Made sent me a 200Ld GIFT CARD!  Then he even upped it by another 29Lds so I could buy this set.

Obviously, I’ve just clicked and snapped them as they are in the shop for the simple reason that I won’t be using these till we change our sims season.  I’m going to turn my side into what I hope is something resembling a British coastal Quay scene and these old crumbling concrete columns are just perfect.  Not only in their design and texturing but even the largest piece is just 1prim!

Honestly, as I’ve mentioned I have already bought 4 things and I was 100% going to return at the end of my month’s enforced cheapness to buy the pack as at 229Lds for this quality and uniqueness it’s worth it.

Also even if you don’t want to visit the shop still go for the sim, it’s so well landscaped that even though there are shops on it it’s a perfect backdrop for some picture posing.

PS. If you can’t remember the Freebie I’m putting the link to that post here as well as the updated LM.

GO GO GO GO GO!(Hunt/Freebies).

This is a 2 parter post and a collab cos Faith is actually going to tell you about the rentals on this sim and I am going to show you just 1 of the super hunt items set out.

Faboo, a shop that specialises in beach wear, has a really BIG hunt going on at the mo.  If I remember correctly 30 items for us girls and 10 for the boys and what you’re looking for is a little pile of sand with a chest on it.  Not only are these easy to spot you do actually get a list packed with the clues as to where to find them and it’s EASY PEASY so don’t let the idea of it being a “hunt” put you off.

They do have an ulterior motive in that they want you to walk around the whole sim to not only score some really nice items but to see ALL of the rentals but that’s the last thing I will say about them because I called Faith over to check this place out and she too was rocked by what she saw, so see her next post for more details about that.

Although I’m just showing you the 1 item out of the 4 I’ve found so far each one of them is a winner.  You get a mix of sizes and fits, some come with Huds and all seem to be wearable straight away so you don’t even need to unpack and unbelievably they’re actually TRANSFERABLE, obviously non-copy as well! How nice so that means if you find something that isn’t to your taste you can pass it on. Spread the joy I say lol.

I’m heading right back now to LM grab for you and then grab as many of the hunt items as I can for myself and what I won’t/can’t use I will pop into my “noob” folder to pass on as I’m pretty sure anyone old or new would be happy to receive these and I’m popping some into my keepers folder as well.

PS You do have to join the Free Faboo group and grab the list from the LM.

Pose with me, inc a Freebie of sorts.

Not everyone wants to own a sim or a home in SL, trust me it’s not as expensive as you think and if you find a like minded friend or friends to share the tier fee it’s cheaper than drinking, smoking or any other RL addiction you may have.  Even so with a whole sim to play with I keep a folder of Landmarks to lovely places to preen and pose in and I found this place last night.

It’s called “The Beguiled  Art Gallery and Studio” and you not only have a massive house packed with prebuilt room/scenarios/scenery to pose in but you have the WHOLE sim to play in which is landscaped for a poseurs delight.

xxxsim-use

Inside the building is everything from this cute ice cream parlour to a saucy bedroom.

xxxsimuse2

This is the staircase to the windows where you can show off your “wares”!

It’s rare to find builds that come not only packed with poses but poses that actually work!  So I only used the inbuilt poses and deliberately took these in my Nams setting with no editing so you can see that anyone with even the most basic of camera skills can make great pictures, or at least a pretty decent one, now imagine these same pictures with a bit of wind light fun or editing. PS Every menu comes with an adjust menu as well.

xxxsimuse3

ALL of this is FREE for anyone to use you don’t even need to join a group.  As if the great props “n” poses “n” a whole sim to play in wasn’t enough you CAN REZZ!  Yes, you have rezzing permission which is rare to find and that means if there is a pose ball you have or a prop you would like to use then you can.

I know that readers of this blog don’t need to be told this but for those who do DO NOT ABUSE the sim owners generosity, I don’t know if this is an “adult” sim but no effing with a friend or be a prim wh*re,  and please pack your stuff up! Again I know our lot don’t need to be told this but when Faith and I ran rental sims trust me the nicest of people can get a little bit “forgetful” with their prim count, messes, and sim rules.

I did spot a tip jar and I will be popping a couple of hundred Lindens in there because I can see myself using this sim often.  Don’t worry if you can’t just a few Lindens goes a long way to saying Thanks esp when someone or some people have gone out of their way to

As for the Freebie, just before I TPed over to this sim there was a shout out in the Cynful group that “Z” was on the Lucky Board so a quick TP and I snagged this skin tight sexy dress.  The Group Gift is one I’ve done but it’s still there and 100% sexy, the walls of Lucky Boards are 2 rooms behind the entrance, and the entrance is where you find the Group Gift, just open your Mini Map and follow all the dots as the LB wins are shop quality and varied and you always find lots of AVs stood there which means the change in initials is pretty quick.

I Kidd you not (Freebies).

This is my Mondays KISS and it’s a good one.  Sorry but the Freebie isn’t the house, you have to go to Dust Bunny and pay a wodge of Lindens to buy the house but the Freebies are those gorgeous star emiiters you can just about make out.

Faith and I both know the KIDD shop well because they sell some of the best low prim, sim stuffing plants, fields and garden features in SL and the prices are so reasonable and by reasonable I actually mean CHEAP! At the moment we have stunning dark stemmed bushes with bright red berries everywhere on our sim and  because the Pampas Grass I have everywhere as well also comes with a menu I have been able to change the texturing to a more wintery effect and even popping over to grab the LM I spotted some glorious and large wintery Bamboo plants and OMG 25Lds for a whole fat pack of them and even the largest one is just 2 prims I snapped it up and now I can’t wait to get back inworld to rezz rezz rezz and then rezz some more of these great plants.

Last year dop Kidd (dop.kidd) put out 2 sparkling animated star rezzer  as a gift for us and it’s back but even better because not only do you have 4 colours-gold, silver, white and also a light pale blue but I think they’re emitting even more sparkly stars.

When I got back inworld this morning I decided to re-shoot the picture of the stars in our sim setting only and Voila here they are.

XXXKiss

For some reason I can’t upload the other pictures I took but at least in this one you can see how gorgeous these stars are and I’ve taken the picture only in our sim setting with no editing fun.   They emit the stars in a swirling pattern, perfect for placing over a special feature you want to highlight or raise them up even higher and use them as a snowy effect as they get wider at the bottom.  Best of all since each star is only a single prim then they make for a dramatic snowfall effect for any size parcel of land.  They are non copy and you get only a single copy of each colour but they’re trans which means you can send these as a lovely gift or of course keep them all for yourself….or be greedy and go grab a few boxes of them because as I said at a single prim for such a great dramatic look I could scatter them all over our sim.

Hats off to me (Freebie).

Hatzan

Sometimes I’m surprised that I’ve not subbed to a shop because as a blogger I’m always looking out for freebies/gifties etc and often we get news of these in messages through subscribed notices.  So basically when I slapped the NYC board not only wasn’t I already subbed but I also got sent not only this excellent Fedora but a total of 4 colour packs and each pack comes with a colour combo options.  So good, such a great fit, texturing etc I actually sent Baylen in to grab them.

He also popped over to the BRILLIANT Kowloon sim which both Faith and I know so well and have mentioned before but it never gets boring so here are a few pictures of Baylen pulling a moody look in Kowloon.

orton1

This is such a moody and atmospheric sim, the sounds of life going on around you and in particular a high pitched tone is very effective at making this place seem ..

orton5

The streets are densely packed together and to find the hidden treasures you need to walk down the dark alleys or up stairs.  Although there are shops here and marketplaces I cannot help but think that behind this whole sim is someone who has the generosity to fund a place which is mainly for people to wander and enjoy an experience that we could never try in RL (what a bloddy shame!)

orton6 As you can imagine most of the shops sell just plain weird and wacky stuff, I’ve actually bought a melting snowman AV in prep for Winter, but since 90% of the stuff you can buy here is just a few Lindens you can spend spend spend not  a lot of money and have a laugh doing it.  Plenty of hang out places and you can purchase food to sit and eat.

My biggest and only complaint about Kowloon is that people can rent homes there but sadly because of the language difference for non Chinese speakers it’s not advisable (their advice not mine) and the language barrier may cause difficulties.  Sometimes I think Sod that and I would just love to rent one of the rooms above a shop or something just to stand there and with the sounds of the city below you chill out.

PS when I went back to LM grab, you rezz just outside the main gates, there is a small cube with some gifties in it.  A hat and weird steampunkish eye glass and for those of you who don’t want to wander aimlessly but do want to check out the shopping spots there is a hud which shows you were they are…but don’t use it! The joy of this place is the wandering and the discovering.

Desert me P2.

simlight

As soon as I logged back inworld my first place to return to is the David C Heather sim where I had just spent a most relaxing hour or so snapping some pictures off and just sitting there pondering.  I also decided it was time to join the VIP group because although for a lot of people 350Lds would be a lot to pay to join a group, that it until you see the amazingly detailed and cute bag which is this months Group Gift.  Unbelievably detailed from the tiny zipper teeth to the pose that comes with this bag.  In total you get 4 bags which comprises of 2 sizes for men/female/large or small AVs and pose or no pose options in those sizes.  The smaller one fits me perfectly and the pose, hand holding the strap going across your chest is subtle and doesn’t affect my AO but of course you can use the non pose bag if you wish.  This bag is for sale in the shop for 300Lds and you have a much wider range of colours than the Blood coloured Group Gift but I’m hoping that by paying the extra 50Lds I’m so going to reap the rewards in future Gifts from here.

I have a theory and it’s a simple one.  When a designer/shop owner/entrepreneur opens a shop in SL sometime the outside tells you more of the quality to expect when you go inside the shop itself.

David2 It’s as though a giant has been blown up and his limbs, although those legs are definitely feminine to me, and scattered across the sim.

David3

A great place to either pose like me or just to stand alone and chill out.

David

And finally the shop itself.  That stunning bright red colour is like a beacon.  All of the photos were taken using nothing but the sim windlisghts setting which adds to so much to the sims atmosphere.

The clothes you will find here you will not find anywhere else, unique and fresh designs especially for men.  Not cheap prices but neither are they unreasonable and because you’re paying for the chance to stand out from the rest worth every penny.  Plenty of demos for you to try out.
