I knew it! So I’ve been trotting around SL for the past couple of days with my New Mina hair on (you may have spotted it in my last few posts) but the first time I put it on I picked one of the brown shades at random and my first thought was “this is new?” (OK I lie, all I was thinking about is food which is basically what I think about all day) and then I changed the shade and didn’t really give it much thought but Damn! I was right.
In fact, the note that came with the hair says…
“And some exciting news! I worked on all the textures to give the hair more natural flair and added colors to the different color packs!
5 new browns, 5 new reds, 5 new blondes and 5 new pastels! So more colors in your HUDs!”
Holy Crap this means you now get 15!!! shade’s in each pack and just look at the detail in this picture, taken in the sim setting I was on but it’s very similar to my usual Nams setting.
OK, I’m going to be vague here. When updates happen in SL it takes the creator time, effort and even money to bring out these new updates across their whole range. So as far as I know this is the only hair I have with the super sized 15 shades but I could be wrong and Mina could have updated her whole stock or just the newest hairs as they come out or even just this hair BUT as I always say try before you buy and you will see for yourself. I have a feeling though that the 15 shade range will be pretty standard for her new hairs and when you consider her hair packs only cost between 300-350Lds what a bargain.
As always Mina makes the best Gingers in SL! Her reds/gingers are stunning. There was an article in the Daily Mail about a photographer who has take pictures of true redheads to show off their real beauty and it made me green with jealousy.
I’m pretty sure this milky blonde is a new shade as well. The fact that you get 15 shades in each pack means you get everything from this lightest of blondes all the way through the shades till you get to light brown etc
Even a hardened brunette like me still loves the blondes.
I’m not a Kawaii person but even the pinks, pastels and ombre shades look so good esp on an adult skin because sometimes I find these shades are more suited to much younger skins so to find one that blends so well to an adult skin is good.
Is it just me or does anyone else would think this would also make a superb mans hair as well? Of course and I know I repeat myself but Mina also has some of the best men’s and unisex hairs in SL and some superb hat/hair combos which is why I always put the link to her inworld shop so you can try before you buy.
Plus if you’re on a budget she has Gacha’s in her shop from old events and they too are super bargains 100lds or less a try and although you have to take the risk on the shade pack you get the full shade pack (pre price increase shade pack). Some of my fav hairs are actually Gacha wins.
PS The demo for Arwen is in Mina’s main shop but also the shop at the Ultra event plus there is a small selection of Mina’s hairs and even some of the Gacha’s I was talking about. If the LM doesn’t take you to the Ultra shop then just walk ahead up the steps and it’s to your right.
