Beyond the pale.XXX.(Sale, Men & Women 50Ld GG’s)

I went over to the “XXX” shop to check out the skin sale that is going on but when I saw the wall of GG’s and the joining price is only 50Lds  I decided to go for them instead.

There are no demos for the GG’s but it’s pretty obvious from the pictures the style of skin you were going to get ie young, pale and kawaii.  What made this even more tempting is that you also get the body appliers to go with the heads which isn’t always the case plus there are extras such as “glassy eyes” lipsticks etc.  All of them are on the wall but you will also spot gift boxes on the desk and chairs so grab them.  These seem to be mainly clothes and I did bin them all inc the really GOOD black coat in the Halloween gift box but make sure you do check them out before you make your mind up.

In these 2 pictures, I’m wearing the same skin and I took the pictures just in my sim setting and with the lightest of light face lights.  In the bottom picture, I just added a few layers of my own makeup/freckles/lashes etc to see if this is a skin you can add your own layers to and you can.

I think you get about 5 or 6 faces and the 2 body appliers are the matching shades for these skins.

There is also skin for men and some clothing.  The men’s skins are in the same matching style as the girl’s skins ie youthful, kawaii so not “manly man” skins but lots of people do love that look, me inc.

Here is the list of the appliers for the gifts but in the full-priced skins you get many more appliers.

Body Appliers. Belleza, eBODY, Maitreya, SLink, Omega

Head Appliers. Omega, Catwa, 6Doo

PS.  There is a sign for the older skins and if you go there there is a dollarbie of freckles you can buy, not shown in the picture.

Losing the will to unpack.(Freebies).

I was such a good little AV and I stood on my platform and binned, binned and then binned some more then for some insane reason I decided to go to the latest round ot the The Gacha Guardian event…FOOLISH ME!

Not just so many gifties set out for us but too much temptation in those Gachas which basically means I undid all my good work binning stuff.

Obviously, as usual, a lot of the small Froo Froo sorta thing but when they come as great as this platter of tempting treats who cares.  I was hoping to find a dress or shoes but TBH when I’d unpacked a third of what I got I gave up as it was so late.

I also have to say that one of the reasons I’ve not been doing any of the big hunts going on is because I’m pretty sure our readers will know whats happening plus these events have a tendency to be so busy which means so laggy so I’ve been waiting for them to calm down but this.event was so nice and quiet just a few other AV’s like me wandering around checking the Gacha’s and grabbing the goodies.  So for you I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a Sunday.

I’ve also put the link to the Seraphim website.  This isn’t a blog for cheap or free but it’s the most comprehensive and up to date site for all the SL events.

PS You have to join the “Gimmie Gacha” group but invite is sent.

Big Fat Fail!(Free BUT Hurry).

This morning has been one BIG FAT FAIL even my picture is a FAILURE!!!

I decided I would try to find a super free or bargain priced skin and you know my thoughts on skin ‘n’ hair (worth paying for) and so far I’ve failed badly so badly I’ve ended up logging out leaving my AV stood on my platform looking a right mess in the skin I actually paid a group to join to grab!

So whats the point of the piccie, well I went over to the “7 Deadly S(K)ins” shop because they have 31 apples just waiting to be plucked but could I pluck em? Heck no!  Only 1 apple is available each day to group members but I don’t know if it’s just not started yet because I couldn’t seem to be able to get to work then since there is 31 apples waiting I thought I would return and try another day but I spotted in the notice that the 7 Deadly S(K)ins group is only free to join for a very limited time and so I decided to rush this out as I have a feeling that it’s only free for 24 hours.

PS Each apple I believe contains a male/female skin but please check but I do know that the daily apple is only free for 24 hours after that if you want that apple/skin then it costs 99Ls.

Vlada was my first, wink wink. (GG & Freebie).

Vlada was my very first love in SL as soon as I put Vlada on I became a PumeC addict.  Fortunately for me at that time PumeC was a Free to join group and every time a new GG was put out I was the first in line.  I’m such an addict that in the Flickr PumeC group I am listed as the main picture poster because 95% of the skins I use in SL and my pictures are PumeC. So really if you want to check out her skins just scroll through my posts because I can guarantee that in about 95% of my pictures I’m wearing a PumeC skin, Anna shape and Mina hair or check out the PumeC Flickr and you will see how gorgeous and also versatile these skins are.

Added to the fact that the skins are not only gorgeous but every skin in the shop and that even includes the Group Gifts come with ALL of the biggest Appliers in an incredibly easy to use Hud as standard!

XXXPuma

Since this group is now 199Lds to join and I didn’t spot a demo of this GG once I’d had my fun with editing I popped home changed my outfit, I can’t go bargain hunting in a corset!, and my settings back to my Nams prim and skin setting so you can see her the same way I do.

XXXPumeC

As you can see she is definitely more Summer than Winter and a pretty dramatic look especially with those deep smokey eyes.  I will be honest and say that unlike a lot of skins because of the deep dark eyeshadow  you cannot put on a different eye shadow, they simply don’t cover up but you have carte blanche to change the lips, blusher etc I will also be honest and say this shade in this skin is not my fav, shocking I know but at least honest, but check out the Vlada I fell in love with.

XXXPuma3

This is Vlada the original, pale and innocent and yet those eyes make her slightly vampish.   I’m not even sure if she is still available as she is about 3 years old now but putting her on still makes me hum with happiness.  All of these pictures again in my Nams setting so what you use will change the look of everything but this is the setting I love as it makes everything look simply the best.

XXXPumec4

Now this IS a FREE FOR ALL!

I wasn’t too sure at first as I was wearing my PumeC tag but I decided to change my tag to “none” and I popped back and “bought” it for 0lds and so it seems it’s a lovely gift for everyone (fingers crossed that I’m not wrong through) and as standard even this Freebie comes with ALL the Appliers! This is a rather pale and wishy-washy look to me which is PERFECT because unlike the dramatic Vlada look with this you can slap as much or as little make up as you want.  With such a great base skin you can create so many looks with just a change of lipstick, blusher etc and of course APPLIERS as standard.

The Group Gift is the large picture above the desk in the reception area and the Free for all one is the picture leaning against the desk.  You will also spot some Gacha’s in the entrance and yet again bargain priced and shop quality.

I’m also putting my Flickr link here so to save you from all the scrolling but again 95% of the skins I wear are PumeC and often they’re the same skin I’ve just been lazy and changed the lips, eyes, hair etc

PS there are also Gacha’s in the entrance way and if you have a few more Lindens to spare then you couldn’t go wrong treating yourself to a surprise from them as well.

Silly Goose, feed the addiction. (Freebies).

I stumbled upon some Lucky Chairs in a shop and although the quality of the contents were a bit dodgy they fed my addiction to Lucky Chairs/Boards.  So I rummaged in my invent for some more old LMs for Lucky Chairs and came across a skin shop called Mother Goose which is still going strong.  So I plonked myself down in front of the big central column in the shop and as quickly as I worked through all my notes my initial kept on coming up.  So I basically ended up with a whole folder of Free skins and even then before I TPed back to my platform I couldn’t resist grabbing not just the Dollarbies but also a whole load of Demos and then spent the next half hour trying them on…and yes binning almost all of them but I love doing this unpacking a whole load of stuff and working my way through the good, bad and downright ugly.XXXSillyI’m not going to lie but to me these free skins aren’t a patch on my PumeC’s BUT just because it’s not my skin of choice doesn’t mean it’s not going to be yours.  On the positive side the variety of LB/Dollarbies/Freebies and paid for skins is vast and especially if you want a pretty, pink and youthful skin then there ARE some adorable ones here with pouty lips and pink cheeks.

The LBs wins don’t come with any appliers and as you will know by now I’m way too lazy to skin match using a Hud but that doesn’t mean you have to be or simply just don’t wear any mesh add ons, not everyone is a fan.

This however is definitely a LM to keep in your invent and if you come across someone new in SL then I bet they will be overjoyed to be able to grab so many skins.

Hot Date (Freebies).

I’m working my way through my groups to clear some out and see if there is any recent free gifts and found that in my Jomo group there is a free gift waiting for you to collect through the group notices.  It’s a pack of Japanese(?) weapons and since my skin is from Jomo’s I decided to go over and check it out.  It’s been so long since I’ve been there it’s a new LM and a new layout.  You’re going to have to do a bit of wandering around as the Freebies are scattered around the shops but there is a large group of them in 1 building and Lucky boards.

hotdate

The Sofa is a freebie however the lovely Hildegarde is NOT for sale, she’s mine all mine!

hotdate3

I changed the windlight setting to show off the tattiness better.  I will double-check but I’m sure this is only 2 prims and comes with a handful of single poses and I’m using one in the top picture.

hotdate2

I picked this work table up at the same time.  You get 2 versions this 1 prim one and a 10 prim one and I didn’t notice any difference in them.

hotdate4

Had to pop over to the sim and out of my low life apartment to show you these brilliant large Lilly pads.

hotdate5

I took the pictures in the sim windlight settings and not edited the picture to show you the excellent texturing.

hotdate6

Although in this picture I rezzed the linked lily pads which turns out to be 19 prims you do get them as individual leaved prims so you can rezz as many or as few as you want.  Sorry forgot to check they’re mod as well.

I also haven’t shown you everything else I’ve gotten because there is too much but I’m annoyed that I forgot to take pictures of the musical instruments I picked up.  Quality items with great AO’s and will look great in a home or as wearables.  There are skins and large builds, boats and clothes all you have to do is a bit of a wander around and pick them up.

Buff Babe.

I popped over to The Thrift Shop event and within the first 2 isle I’d broken my promise and spent some Lindens.

body2

Low, low, very LOW rider style mesh shorts.  So low I had to choose my skin wisely and fortunately this Pink Fuel skin was perfect.  The shorts come from the Toxic *H* stall and for 75Lds they come with a colour changing Hud and 2 colour packs to choose from.  I do believe that this event is over on Sat and I must get back there to check out what else is there is but I’m pretty sure that dotted around the bargains are some Freebies to grab but I’ll have to double check that.realbluebodyI have blogged this skin before and OMG no it’s not a PumeC skin! shocking I know but Mochi Milen in her Pink Fuel shop sells skins that have a difference to them, super Kawaii skins, boi skins, flatter boobs layers, make up, appliers and on and on.  I had picked this skin up previously when it was at a seriously discounted price. The skin on its own has a lovely sweet face, most of her skins are youthful and bright but not childish! and I saved so much on the skin I treated myself to the Applier which gives me an amazing Buffed look which stands out even more on such a sweet face.  This Applier comes with these options “regular, regular+small chest, athletic, athletic+small chest, ripped, ripped+small chest & curvy”  I believe I’m wearing the athletic+small chest in my pictures.

Sadly this shade of skin is now discontinued but as I was LM grabbing I spotted the SALE sign straight away and TPed to the skybox and droooooled.  Skins, Appliers, Tattoo layer’s, Make Up and other cute things slashed in price.  There are appliers for everything from Phat Azz to SLink hands which although have to be bought individually the prices are more than reasonable and more so if you want to create such a unique look to your AV.

PS and if you want this buffed look but not the cost of a SLink body then you can get all the layers as tattoo’s but they will only match the same shade of Pink Fuel skins.
