Just had to scrap my last post as the 25Ld item has now been withdrawn which is such a shame as it was a lovely outfit from Belle Epoque BUT on the other hand Belle Epoque now has LUCKY BOARDS outside and OMG there isn’t one thing on those boards I wouldn’t want. As you can imagine the place is buzzing with people loitering and waiting to score and the only reason I didn’t linger is there was someone with the same initial as me and I wouldn’t want to win something someone else can use but rest assured I will be back the next time I have a load of notes to go through.
I don’t know if you need to be in the Belle Epoque Group but chances are you will have to but thats just 10Lds and of course there are Group Gifts inside.
So I missed out on the Belle Epoque 25Ld offer but I scored on the Jian one.
There are 3 sets out, this table and a mix of baskets and bags of apples and all super low primmed. There are other sets to chose from, cider bottles and I can’t remember the 3rd but I will probably go back to check them out as well as for 25Lds a bargain as well as great decor items.
I actually picked up a couple of other 25Ld Tue offers as it was pretty good this week but although sometimes shops have them out for the full 7 days some shops have them set out for a limited time and so when you get that list it’s best to do it as soon as you can.
PS This is why I also always say that even though the 25Ld Tue is aimed towards RP/Gor/Medival etc you would be foolish to ignore it as decor like this will fit any sim and any home.
It’s been a long time since I was over at IM’s (Image Essentials) and I was so pleased that apart from the large shop filled with poses n props Kay Weston still has her part of the world set out with so many scenes and settings free for all to use.
This rainy maze is one of them and it’s not just a backdrop you can actually walk into it.
There are easy to use TP’s you simply sit on and they will take you anywhere from the beach to shops to Alice in Wonderland and many more and each scene has lots of props and poses for you to use.
The IM group is free to join and I don’t know if there are free poses in the mainshop for us because basically, I didn’t dare go inside the shop as the last thing I need is to be tempted to buy MORE poses! However, there just might be some free poses. What I did do as a Thank You to Kay Weston for all the time, effort and cost that goes into putting all of these things out for people to use is put some money into one of the Tip Jars that are next to the TPs. Money raised this way never really cover a tier fee but it’s just a nice way to say Thank You to the person who has done all of this for us.
Now for a Freebie and it’s the New one from Coco Design.
Just the dress and just 3 main mesh bod sizes.
I’m not really sure what to say about it except, as usual, damned fine quality. The Coco group is free to join and of course, everyone will know that there is a whole wall of the old GG’s which most people at some stage have owned or even still own as they’re standing the test of time.
PS Be warned that the GG’s are also in the same area as the Discounted dept! Sooooooo tempting!
I decided since I didn’t want to risk losing any Lindens to spend some time on my platform and TRASH like mad, isn’t it amazing how many Alpha layers and shoe bases we acquire and I hate to admit this but even now I still have complete system layer clothes! It was a blast from the past but this stuff really clutters up an invent so it’s gone.
Once I’d cleared enough space out I decided to start hunting for my next goodie and here it is.
A simple dress from Avagirl, comes in plenty of sizes etc and only costs a single Linden to join BUT on the wall in the back of the shop is rows of what I call “classic designs” in other words a bit like this dress in that you can find it in many shops but like this version there are some gorgeous bright/fruity coloured textures. So if you’re hunting for a bright look check them out BUT remember just Landmark the shop and return when it’s safe to spend your Lindens.
I’m finding it a bit hard to find some decent free/cheap Autumn/Winter wear but I shall persevere and until then a simple but exc top from Lo’s.
Just look at that twist detailing, just quality, you get so many fits and a Hud with 3 colours in it, this a dark teal(I think) and a floral one.
The Lo’s group is free to join and as well as this group gift there are Lucky Boards and Lucky Chairs. I actually won one of the bathing suits which I have to say is again exc quality but woah only to be worn by those who like to flash as much AV flesh as they can in SL lol.
PS. The group gift and lucky boards are well hidden when you go in the shop turn right and then right into the area on em yes your right and they’re up the stairs. There is a little signboard which you might see but overall not that hard to find.
In my last post, the one with the free skeleton AV, I mentioned the “wearable demos” which are also to be found in the ALB Dream Fashion Marketplace shop and I knew, because I have blogged this and the other 10Ld “Wearable demo” outfits before, that this is just a 100% top quality pretty dress and because it was such a long time ago I’ve decided to reblog it for our new readers.
You get 2 versions of it and 5 fits and 1 fitmesh and trust me this is such a pretty and quality dress.
I also noticed the “Janna” gown which doesn’t ring a bell to me and so I’ve popped it into my basket to check that one out because it too is only 10Lds and looks pretty stunning as well.
OH, I almost forgot to say that you might want to check out her in-world shop as well as you never know whats there.
PS Since we have been given a chance to purchase such stunning outfits for such a small price it would be nice to leave a review of them on the Marketplace shop which is what she does ask for.
Just in case you’re wondering here is “Janna”.
I have just unpacked it, popped it on and pulled a pose and again 100% quality. This one is shades of grey and blue with a hint of metallic but if you don’t like those colours if you have a few more lindens to spend these do come with different textures but the cost does go up to 390Lds but those colours and textures are even nicer than this.
Anyhow check the inworld shop as well as the MP and have fun.
I’ve got a whole new look so I decided to pop over to Mina’s because you know me I have to have just the right hair to suit the outfit.
But sadly even Mina didn’t have the right hair for me.
OK, so I was on the MP(Marketplace) picking up a lovely Autumnal wreath and just as I was about to pay for it this offer popped up and so, of course, I popped it into my basket and here I am. It goes without saying it’s a skeleton AV and it comes in individual bits so a lot of “adding” but it means you can wear as much or as little as you want.
Even if you’re not interested in looking this skinny then check out her MP shop, I don’t have time to pop into her in-world shop at this mo, but there is a 10Ld dress there which is super quality and it with a few others are marked as “wearable demos” and they are priced at 10Lds which suggests to me they’re actually demos but come without the demo markings on them and you do find that occasionally. If I have time later I will pop the Jenna Cocktail dress into my basket to see if that’s the case because demos are usually either free or a dollabie and Jenna is a dress I’ve previously blogged which means it will have been free or super cheap.
This is the best photo out of a bunch of them and even then it’s a rotten picture BUT this offer of FREE joining fee for the Essenz group is just too good to ignore and it finishes on the 17th so I’d haul my AV behind sooner rather than later as the joining fee is usually 350Lds and I know from past notices you get top quality group gifts on a regular basis which leads me to these.
I spotted the gift bag just in the entrance and so snagged it and TPed home excited to see what was in the bag and it’s these but every time I tried to put a pair on I ended up with them stuck to my hands! Soooo I read the note and it turns out these are DECOR items only! As someone who is always saying when a delivery box, bag and shoes are so low primmed they make great decor items these are just what I like and now you have shoes which are designed to be decor items.
There are 3 pairs of shoes and each pair comes in various ways ie stood up, with one shoe leaning against the other and one shoe stood up with the other lying down. Add to that you also get the full-colour hud so you can fill a whole shelf with the same shoe but in so many colours. The only thing is that the colour Huds change ALL the rezzed shoes at the same time so if you want a whole variety of colours you will have to rezz a shoe change the colour then take it back into your invent then rezz the next shoe and change that colour and take it back into your invent and on and on till you have the mix of colours and layout you want.
Soooooo not actual wearable shoes but again I do know that Essenz does put out excellent Group Gifts and when I have more time I will be heading in-world just to see if I’ve missed any actual wearable shoes.
