Hello Flora – New Round of Fameshed !

A new round of Fameshed – new goodies from Neve – hurrah! This is the “Flora” dress – or is it a dress? Actually its a dress that turns into a top !!! Whats more, each of the three panels can be fine tuned via the hud – naturally I’ve gone with pink, stripes, floral and plain – but you can really play around with this – its awesome.

The hud has clearly defined “panels” panel 1 is the top and so on. Notice that button at the lower edge? Click on that, et voila your dress morphs into a sweet little top !

Tadah! The rear of the top is dead cute with a cut out section. Blooming marvellous – Thanks so much Neve team ❤

My work is done.(Dollarbie/Cheapie/New Mina).

I’ve done as much RL work as I can do so far and before I logged inworld I logged into the Marketplace and found an old SL friend.

But first the NEW Mina.

I did struggle a bit with this hair because if you look closely and you will see a tiara of Christmas light and yes they do flicker and flash and that was the problem for me.  They do cause some “light pollution” which can be great for a party, walking around etc but totally lousy for trying to take a close up picture without looking like I’ve snorted into a tub of white face powder.  Finally, I clicked just at the right time and so Voila here is Enora. The other main thing is that this hair is a GACHA! and you do have to squeeze your butt into the latest round of the Arcade.  If you’re worried about the flashing of this tiara then one of the other prizes is a classic style tiara.

BTW The one thing I noticed with Enora is she goes so well with all of my tiaras/crowns and a lot of the headdresses/accessories I own and since the tiaras, you get with her are separates you can use this hair to showcase your fav bling.

I don’t know how much this Gacha costs as I did get into the Arcade yesterday but it was too much but I think today it has calmed down and I suspect that as standard under the Christmas tree there will be a shed load of gifties for us.  I’ll certainly be checking it out later.

Then I was totally shocked by how GOOD this Dollarbie dress is!  Nope, I did not expect that at all. This is a very bright picture which has lessened the folds and stuff but I was most pleased and the textures in the hud are all very Christmassy and wearable.

Now for an old friend.

I used to blog for Mag<3.B not much but occasionally she would send me something and her Group Gifts were cheap enough that I’d just pick stuff up when I’d pop in.  Sadly the inworld shop shut down for a long time ago and I never thought about the Marketplace and it turns out her old stuff is still for sale there.  So I have an excuse to show you one of the old and yet fav pairs of shoes I used to wear a heck of a lot.

You can wear them with or without the socks but TBH I’m not even sure if these are mesh feet fits, I’ve just looked and no not for mesh feet which is probably why I wore them so much as I don’t think I bought mesh feet for a long time.  They’re only 5Lds.  Some super bargains and I can totally recommend the wearable knitted bags…so freaking cute.

Mag<3.B is a bit like S@bbia, homespun clothes but with a touch of Kawaii.  OH and don’t bother checking out the link to the inworld shop as it’s a LIE!

I’m a Potato & Sunday is sorted.(LOTS of FREEBIES).

This is going to be a long post so I will break it down into bite size pieces.

The blouse is one of the hunt prizes from an event called “Party People Fair & Hunt”.

What you’re looking for is cute little potatoes and there are so many of them that in just the short distance I walked from the LM to the stalls I think I picked up about 8 of them.  Then I logged out did a quick google and found the link for pictures of what’s for sale and what are gifts.  The sale items are in the first picture and the gifts are in the second.  All of the hidden potatoes are in the middle of this sim, it’s a maze, and so badly hidden even a numpty like me had no problem.

Party People Sale & Hunt Prizes Pictures

Party People LM

The hair is a Mina one and it’s a Gacha Win from of course The Arcade. I’ve not even tried to get in there! I mean OMG is it even worth trying for at least 2 weeks? Naturally, I got mine sent to meeeee.  I usually when given the option “style” my hair with the hair tendrils hanging down framing my face but in this case, the fit of those scarves is just too good. I’m wearing the rigged version but if need be there is an unrigged version. From what I could see if you win one of the hairs in the Gacha you get a random shade of hair and a preset hud of scarf colours, the other prizes are of the earrings and other scarf huds.  Since I’m not a jewellery wearer I’m not sure I’d be too keen on winning them but they are really good earrings, I know you can’t see them from this angle but they’re quality hoops and beads and can be worn with anything.  TBH I’m cutting this short and putting the LM not only to just the Mina’s main shop BUT also to the Seraphim Yardsale.

Mina’s Main Shop.

Seraphim Yardsale

The Seraphim Yardsale is the place to go to if you want your fix of Arcade prizes but don’t want to wait and don’t want to risk not getting the prize you really want.  All of the items are laid out in a very neat and orderly way.  I’ve already picked up a couple of items I wanted without the stress of actually going to the Arcade itself.

The reason I’ve added a bit about the Seraphim yardsale is because of the Mina hair. It is rare to see a Mina Gacha hair up for resale, people are just happy with their prizes and I just never see them but I’ve noticed that the earrings and scarf huds have been boxed up for resale at the Seraphim yard sale.  So if you want the earings but not the hair or you want a different scarf hud OR if you want to get rid of the earrings or a scarf hud then pop over to the Seraphim Yardsale, they have made it super easy to buy and sell but there is a group joining fee to be able to do this but if you end up with a lot of unwanted stuff then think about packing it up and letting someone else buy it.

LAST chapter.  I know Faith did a post about the “Tres Chic” event and now that everyone has rushed over to The Arcade it means this event has finally calmed down!  So I went and grabbed all of the Birthday gifts and although I’ve not even started to unpack I have a sneaky suspicion there are some decent prizes in there inc SHOES!

Tres Chic

Sunday is sorted, I’m just about to click “Publish” do some RL work I have to do and then in a little while I can log back in with a guilt-free conscience, do the whole Party People event and then settle down on my platform and work my way through all of the goodies I’ve picked up.

Easing into the day.(Freebies & Advent).

Todays !g0 Advent gift is the skirt, lots of fits and 50Lds to join the !g0 group.

The top I mentioned in my last post, it’s one of the freebies from the Okinawa Winter Event, lots of fits and I think there were 3 colours in the hud.

BUT I want to do a special mention to my Yoyo, BEST AO EVER! This is the SEmotion gift under the Christmas tree at The Arcade Event.  We all know that when it comes to movements such as drinking coffee, smoking a cig etc it still leaves a lot to be desired but you get 3 motions with this yoyo and OMG even the most intricate one where you flip and grab it is perfect! So realistic I TPed over to the SEmotion shop to check out their AOs as I’ve been using the same AO for about…..oh dear 10 years maybe.  I didn’t buy any, the only reason I didn’t is my AO is understated.  The animations are slight and natural and that’s how I like it so although I appreciated the work that has gone into creating the AO’s at SEmotion I will be sticking to my old one but I will put the link for you to the SEmotion shop.

UPDATE. Try the SEmotion AOs but don’t buy yet as I’ve just popped to the shop I bought my AO from, all those years ago, and I’m finally going to update my AO so when I come back with more freebies I will give you the LM for that shop as not only do I think their AOs are excellent you can buy a fully loaded AO for only 200-300Lds or individual poses for just 10Lds….so don’t go spending any Lindens before you’ve tried both shops.

Just for a giggle.(Gone Hunting at the Arcade Event).

I’ve still not managed to get into this event and now I’ve seen what’s on offer I really want to get into this event!

I can still show you the Mina/Salt and Pepper collab hair.  You may remember “Salt and Pepper” as Mina has collabed with her before to bring us the excellent interactive wet/dry hair and now it’s a case of pretty hair to …….

 

ZOMBIE HAIR!

Fortunately for my dumb ass the hair came with a note because in the pack there is a steaming grate and a fire hydrant and I couldn’t understand why decor items were included in a Mina hair and then I read the note and it was a case of “nooooo wayyyy” lol.

Basically, you wear your hair and look lovely then rezz the grate and the hydrant where you want and when you walk over the grate you get a shower of sparks and your hair changes to a shaved side.  In the picture I am wearing the brain skull cap which is the “Players Reward” and I have to say what a shame it’s not inc as standard as it racks up the Zombification of this hair but Mina has also used facial scratches from one of my fav shops called Izzies so I will put the LM so you can go check out that shop and see if there are any freebies/cheapies or you might just buy something in any case OR of course if you check out the link to the Seraphim post you will see pictures of everything on offer and I have earmarked so many things I want to try to win.

The other thing I noticed is that with the shaved side this hair can be worn as an edgy haircut esp if you also win one of the more usual colour packs.  Anyhow I will leave it with you.

To return your hair back to its glorious normalness just keep on walking past the fire hydrant and get doused with water and a twinkle of lights and voila you’re gorgeous again.

I’m wearing the shorter hair version.  As always I have put the link to Mina’s main shop as you can get not just the demo hair and she also has the grate and hydrant set out for you to walk past and try the transformation before you get into the event and of course more info on the common and rare wins.

PS.  Only 75Lds a try even if you’re not bothered with it as a shaved look for a really lovely and wearable hair it’s a BARGAIN!

I then decided to pop over to the Salt and Pepper main shop as I’ve not really paid it much attention.  It costs 300Lds joining fee but not only are there some really REALLY nice GG’s it also seems this group also allows you entrance to a selective club called “The Birdcage” and Ooerr its a naughty club for naughty people! So I didn’t join because I am a good girl lol but you baddies might want to check that out.

PS.  Sorry clothes are old freebies and not available any more BUT although the Izzie group is a paid for one I spotted a free for all of a black lipstick which comes with extra vampiness plus there are small cheap little gift boxes which for a few Lindens contain old stuff.  I do remember buying these a long time ago and unless the contents have been updated now that I wear a mesh body/head I don’t know how much of it I could use now but it might be nice to just spend a few Lindens (10) to check out the contents.

Vintage Fair!

Vintage Fair is open to all yay! I’ve got the scoop on the release from Neve – Fringed jacket with top and a million ways to wear it (well – almost !) This is Milla – oh gawd I do love it – so many options to play with, suede’s, pastels, florals and on and on – go take a nosey and check it out. (Main mesh body fits included)

Of courrrrrrse I could not show the pink option right! This top sits perfectly with Neve’s “Minnie” jeans, I also tried it on with the “Sass” shorts – brilliant fit ! New hair I grabbed from the market place – its by Doe and is at The Arcade – I couldn’t be fussed with the lag over there so shopped for it second-hand on the market place – just enter the name of the item you’re looking for in the search bar et voila – someone will be selling it. Thanks Neve team ❤

Nooooooooo! She’s done it again.

I never got around to doing a post about the Mina hair I’ve been wearing over the past week but damn as soon as I saw this I ripped off that wig and slapped this beauty on.

Mina has done it again and added that something extra which to me makes her hair something extra and in this case its hair that goes from wet to dry to wet to dry to wet etc and although you can’t see it in this picture when wet you even get drops of water running down the strands.

The wet look lasts for 135 seconds.

Or if you wanted it dried super quick just whip out the hairdryer thats included and 5 seconds late super dry and stylish hair.

I don’t really know what else to say, not that ever stops me, but yet again Mina has just added something NEW to SL hair. Every time she brings out a new hair there just seems to be something extra, whether that’s a bigger colour hud or the options in the “options tab” which allows you to change the way you style it, material and non material versions so people who want to reduce any lag issues their computer may have can still wear a great hair but without any impact on how their computer runs and on and on and now this wet to dry or dry to wet just adds another dimension.

Here is the note that comes with the hair with instructions on how to get the best out of it but really it’s easy to understand.

“The hair turns wet on contact with default SL water,
It dries off in the sun, 135 seconds to fully dry. Or use the included Blow Dryer; the hair dries within 5 seconds.

Quick command in local chat to get wet hair: /1337 get wet
Quick command in local chat to get dry hair: /1337 get dry

The hair is Fitted Mesh and works with your sliders but I also included two versions, one for the bigger breasts bodies like the SLink Hourglass and Belleza’s Freya and one for Maitreya etc.”

So as you can see you don’t even need to dunk your hair in SL water, just type the short command in chat and you can have that wet look anywhere anytime.

Soooo where do you get it from?  You can get this from FaMESHed which has started NOW and the price for this hair is 325Lds for each shade pack, 15 shades in total, 300Lds for the 13 Shade pack or you could go wild and buy the Fat Pack but I can’t remember the price of that one.

Mina has collabbed(sic) with a shop called Salt & Pepper and what a team up it’s turned out to be.  The Salt & Pepper Gacha’s theme is “Wet T-Shirt Contest” and the prizes range from the catwalk to sashes but it’s the clothing which I bet most people will be wanting to get their mitts on as it too has the “wet to dry to wet” feature and   I’ve put the link to the Seraphim Arcade picture so you can check out the total wet sexiness that’s going on……and of course all the other offerings at this event.

Both of these events start NOW which means don’t even bother!!! Sorry but let’s be honest it’s gonna be PACKED and LAG HELL so you know what I’m gonna say…LM below for Mina’s main shop because you can try the demo not just for “Sandra” but the other new hairs which I just haven’t gotten around to doing.  You can, of course, type the instructions in chat if you so which but Mina does have a lovely sim and in front of the shop is a beach so go for a swim and try it out that way as well.

I’ve not put the LM to the 2 events because it’s much easier and nicer to see whats for sale before you go and if you check out the Links you can see everything.

PS.  Faith aren’t you grateful I resisted the temptation to name this post “Wet Dreams”?
