A work of art.(New Mina@New Event? & Mention of Freebies)

This new Mina hair is at an event called “The Final Winter” which is most odd as Summer is here or at least that’s what people say but when I look out of my window it’s hard to tell it’s Summer.

I have obviously had fun with the editing but I know you know I always say try the demo first so you can try it and make sure it suits you.

I’ve just snagged the “The Final Winter” LM and on the notice board at the LM it says FREEBIES which are in the hidden dragon eggs so when I manage to get some more SLing time I’m dragon egg hunting.

I could be totes wrong but is this a “Game of Thrones” theme?  I don’t want to shock anyone but I’ve not only never watched an episode of Game of Thrones but DRUM ROLL…I’ve not even read a Harry Potter book and I am not ashamed to admit it.  I think the only reason it makes me think it is based on this show is that the length, braids etc and the way Mina Nakamura has styled this hair in her pictures suggests it to me but again I could be wrong….I often am.

PS.  Mina is usually so prompt in putting the demo hair in the “New” section and it is there but just not the image.  Go to the boards with all the new hairs and although the board is blank just click and buy the demo for 0Lds.  Chances are by the time you read this she will have put the picture up.

Why?(Free(?)Mina & Massive Mina Hair Sale).

I’ve been trying for days to get into a couple of big events and because they’re stoofed I’ve not been able to which is a shame as I would love to confirm it but I’m 99% sure that this Mina hair called Faith is FREE and add to that you get a FULL-colour hud pack! Holy Crapola! Faith is already one of my fav hairs, so obviously I’m just wearing the copy I already own lol, but to be able to snag this for free and the full-colour pack is AWESOME!

To get this free hair you have to try to squeeze your AV ass into the “Shop Your Heart Out Event” and I wish you luck.  I stood for ages waiting for enough people to leave so I could get in but nope, I’ve put the link to this event blog at the bottom of this post so you can see why this is a special event.  Don’t panic though as this event goes on till the 26th and the Mina LM should take you right to her shop at this event.

So I TP’ed over to Mina’s Mainshop and just stood on her lovely landscaped sim and pondered what to do because in her mainshop in celebration of her SL/RL Birthday she’s got a massively discounted sale on.  All of the women’s hairs and some of the men’s hair upstairs in her shop are slashed to 125Lds for each colour pack.  The reason for the rush is that this discounted event is only on till the 13th and you’re going to need all of the time from now till then to try on all of these hairs as there are so many!

These aren’t hairs which haven’t dated well in fact for a while I was at a complete loss as to why they were being removed from the inworld shop and then it dawned on me it’s the size of the colour hud options.  The discounted hairs are still some of the best hairs but they do come with a choice of 5 colours whilst the newer hairs come with a massive 10 colour options.

What a way to fill your invent with great hair.

You can miss out all of the rest of this post as it’s just me being spammy.

I get my Mina hair for free but I am a free agent, I don’t have to blog every hair, I don’t have to sing their praise, I don’t have to wear them all the time or bad mouth other hairs!  I only have to be honest and I LOVE Mina hairs.  Of course, I have hair from so many other designers, Dura, D!va, Argrace etc and LOVE them but Mina always just has styles that makes me feel “Oh yeah, that works” and even when not showing you a new Mina I’m 95% of the time wearing a Mina because I always just find the right hair.

Although most of her range is every day, everyone wearable she also had unique “out there” range of hair.  She also has the best range of men/unisexed hair I know although I will admit my knowledge of men’s SL hair is limited so any male AV will know what they prefer.  She’s now also coming out with a lot of little extra “options” which allow you to change the style of the hair, for example, the 2 new Pocket Gacha wins and each comes with the 4 ways to wear your fringe/bangs even Faith has 2 options the one I’m wearing and the other one moves the plaits to allow for bigger boobies.

I also know that Mina is a working lady, she’s in SL to make money and not just for making money’s sake.  I won’t go into personal details but being able to use her creativity and computer skills to make money allows her to look after not just herself but also her family and I think we, even I, sometimes forget that a lot of people actually do need the income from SL because it can for those who have the skill offer an income to help with RL.  Which is why I may hunt out the cheap ‘n’ free but when I spot something I love, usually furniture and landscaping stuff, I buy it. I spend a lot of Lindens in SL because people need support but mainly because my SL is my RL escapism and so if I spend some RL money to make my escapism just that bit sweeter then I do.

PS.  Forgot to mention that at the Mina’s mainshop LM there is also 2 Midnight Madness boards with yet again one of my go-to hairs in it!

I’m Gonna Make You PAY for this! but don’t worry it’s a bargain priced Gacha.

So I’ve done my cheapy for the day so now I’m going to make you pay, for this New Mina hair.  Hair and skin are almost the last things that you have to pay to get the quality, fortunately there is a couple of top quality shops out there who do an occasional amazing free gift for skins and hairs such as Dura and Ann Hurley but the reality is that quality is few and far between so my aim in SL is to make you save Lindens on the stuff I can find for free so you can spend your Lindens on great hair/skin.

Firstly ignore the top as it’s an old freebie and long gone, although I might just check that out because I could be wrong, it’s the hair I want to show you.

I want this hair in RL, I want this short slightly scrappy cut, cutie hair but then again I also want thick flowing locks or a ratted Bee Hive look I wish changing hair in RL was as easy as SL.

This hair called Anika, that’s the same name as the top I’m wearing which is why I’m using this top LOL.  Anika is only available at the new round of The Epiphany and I’m NOT GOING TO GO,  mainly because I’m too poor and there is too much temptation!

Mina doesn’t stint on her hairs even the ones is the bargain 75Ld Gacha because as I’ve said previously you do get a colour pack so 5 shades of blondes, brunettes, reds (the best red hair in SL) all in a simple to use Hud and I almost forgot that a lot of Mina hairs come with 2 styles, sometimes the difference can be very slight but sometimes it still makes all the difference.  I decided to do a quick log in to check out the second version in the pack and I couldn’t help but take a quick snap just as I was on my working platform with no pose because SOD IT my AV is GORGEOUS just like the real me…stop sniggering!

PS Remember the Epithany is special because if you don’t want to keep what you win or end up with too many of the same things then DO NOT UNPACK them.  A pop up menu pops up giving you the option of keeping or trading it in for points and with these points you get to treat yourself to a special that can only be purchased with these points and in Mina’s case it’s a beautiful hair flower.

Follow the link to the Seraphim web site, an amazing scource of all things SL, for the piccies and lMs and don’t panic if the place is packed because it’s on for a whole month.

Heart Breaker.

HeartyI have to confess I’ve not even heard of the Kustom 9 event which turns out to be on its eighth round!  At the beginning of each month, timed to people’s payday, a whole new batch of goodies are set out to tempt you and your purse/wallet and damn I was tempted, not only by this sweet old-fashioned lingerie set (60Lds, non mesh), but by eyes, lip stick, bags and even a rug or 2 so as you can see there is quite a variety of items in the small shops set around a yard.  The bag, which I will take a picture of another time, has a brilliant telephone handle and like the rugs I picked up this is a Gacha item.  The Lingerie set is from the Blah Blah Blah shop and I’ve spotted a couple of other big names but also a few I’ve not seen before and everything is so goooooood and I spent way to much.
