I was wrong and right at the same time, New Mina Group Gift Hair.

This has turned into a long post but stick with it as there is more info about bargains etc.

The hair I was wearing in my last post is called Irma and when I saw the new GG from Mina Nakamura I would have sworn I was actually wearing the new GG but I was wrong.

This is Carmen the new GG.

Scroll back to my last post and apart from the excellent Dollarbies I’m showing you in that post you will be able to see the comparison between that hair, Irma, and this new one called Carmen which is the newest addition to the Group Gifts.

Mina not only comes up with fresh new designs she often takes what works brill in one hair and incorporates it into another hair to create a new look and that’s why this messy piled up bun with all those straggly bits looked familiar to me but Carmen has a bigger messier bun and even more of those face-framing stragglies.  This is also why I always put the link to Mina’s main shop so you can see if there are other hairs with a similar styling that you actually prefer and you can try them on before you make your mind up as to which one you prefer.  I mean how many times have we bought something and then found something we would have much preferred and kicked ourselves?

Carmen comes free but only for those who are already in the Mina VIP Group and that only cost 200Lds to join.  Although you only get this one shade for Carmen you do get the option of wearing it with or without the stragglies and this shade will never be used in another Carmen or other hair pack, I’m not really sure but it’s a one-off colour.

The other GG’s are a mix of one-off colours ie the Arwen bloodied version or actually full shade packs but you can see and try the demos out for yourself before you decided if it’s worth joining.

There is also a men’s selection in the group gift room and everyone should grab both the male and female hairs as some of them make fine unisex hairs.

I’m in a lot of paid for groups as some of them can be pretty generous but we also know of some where you pay a hefty joining fee and never seem to get anything back well in this case even if you just join the Mina VIP group and snag all of the GG’s inc the men as well you get so much back for your 200Ld investment but if you decide to stay then you also get 10% off each future purchase.

Trust me I would join the Mina VIP group if I had to and as soon as a notice of a new hair comes out I’d be TPing over.

PS.  For those of you on a budget the Gacha’s have some really lovely shop quality hair and you get the full hair colour pack plus some great hat/hair combos so if you’re willing to risk the shade then this is a great way of getting a bargain hair for 100Lds and under and you can even try a demo on before you make your mind up.

SORRY more spam but I think you will find it helpful.  The new GG is on the wall at the LM but the rest of them are in an area to the right of the new stuff wall, at the bottom of the stairs.  You will also notice that the Gacha machines have gone but they haven’t Mina has just replaced them with Gacha boards.  So the super Gacha bargains are still to be had.  Lastly but not least Mina had a big shake up and a lot if not all of her “old hair” is now on the Marketplace.  This isn’t “old” hair as such what it is is these are the hairs that have the 5 shades in the pack as standard but quite a while ago now Mina changed it so that it’s now 10 shades in a pack!  So instead of faffing with the other hairs and inc the colours she’s just slashed the prices to I believe about 125Lds so amazing hair at amazing prices as long as you shop on the MP!

I swear to God my next post will be short!

Tis the season to be Hippy.(Freebie).

There are lots of GG’s at FurtaCor and I recognise quite a few from old posts so if you don’t like what you see next you can still pop over and check the rest out as I’m sure there will be something you do like.  Having said that whats not to like with this very generous gift from FurtaCor.

I took so many pictures to try to capture this stylised dress in all its glory.  From this angle, you can see those deep folds, slit up the sides, curves and the embroidery texturing at it’s best.

From this angle, you can just about make out the flat strappy shoes! (I’m still wandering the sim clicking on the greenery to change it to Autumn).

So many sizes for mesh and non-mesh bods and that inc the shoes ADD to all of that the dress comes with a very big HUD of very patterned textured.  The 2 I’m showing you are by far my fav but there is so many to chose from I ended up clicking on each one of them to see how they can change the whole look.  The shoes also come with a Hud as well, sorry can’t remember the amount but it was about 6-8 so really nice.

Sometimes a Freebie comes out and everyone gets it and you see it in blog after blog and on Flickr and this is IT so far.

Wonder Woman!(VIP Gifties &Cheapies & Freebies & New Mina).

I got this new hair from Mina’s and I have to be honest I tried it on and shoved it back into my invent with a “hum not to sure about this one” and then this morning when I unpacked my little hoard from QE Designs it was a “NO WAY” because it turns out Lara with her 80ties vibes, to me at least, turned out to be perfect and not only that but I rarely use the darker/black shades and yet, in this case, that shade even worked out to be the best,

I want to know how many people look at this picture and don’t instantly think of the “Follow me” song in their head?

I had so much fun pulling this look together,  SL is for dressing up and Role Playing and just being who you want to be and in this case an 80ties Babe. I will put my hand up and admit that I’m as guilty as everyone for wearing very nice but “ordinary” clothes when I’m out and about in SL but I also really notice when someone is rocking an interesting and individual look and this is it for me.

I got this outfit from QE Design and the leotard is an Applier set with tattoo layers and it cost just 10Lds.  To join the QE Vip group it’s only 15Lds and you will notice the little doorway in the entrance  which is a TP to the VIP room and I tried it without my VIP Tag on and I could still TP up there so if you want to check out the other VIP GG’s before you join then you can and you can see all the fits/appliers they come with. Even though this “look” mightened be to your taste I’d recommend you do check the rest out before you make your mind up.  Forgot to mention the shoes are one of the VIP gifts which is why I’m wearing them.

I swear when Mina Nakamura created this hair she was either thinking of Wonder Woman or the 80Ties, I’m pulling a Wonder Woman pose here if you hadn’t guessed LOL.

Then I did a quick change to show you the hair as a close-up but also a toned down look.  The top is a FREEBIE also from the QE Design Shop and you will find this and a black version in the reception area of the shop.  The black was a bit flat in texturing and I almost didn’t try the gray on but I think you can see that because of the lighter colour you can deffo see more details and it comes with a hood on the back and you can wear it with or without the hood.  Sorry the pants are old gifties I will pop over to where I got them from but chances are they will have been long gone but any pants will do ie jeans, shorts etc

I’ve also toned down the hair into one of my fav colours.  You might also notice that all the hair is now swept back over my shoulders, unlike the other pictures where you have a lot of hair in front.  This option and the option to change the hair band colour can be found in the “options” tab in the menu.

A couple of things to mention is that now Mina hairs are in a new delivery system so you “wear” it and just click the window which opens and it’s sent to you.  A pretty standard system of delivery now.  Sorry I only got this hair yesterday and I know so little about it it was just too good an opportunity to use it so I will put the link to Mina’s main shop and I’m pretty sure the demo and more info will be in there and I will do an update to this post myself when I find out more about “Lara”

PS Just a slight update because as soon as I TPed over to Mina’s RL came a knocking but there is a demo for Lara as well as the LM to the event where you can buy it from plus I spotted that in the picture Mina has used there is no headband which I didn’t notice.  With the hairband this  big hair is 80ties but without the hair band it screams Warrior Queen to me.  Anyhow pop in, try the demo and snag the LM.

Have a great day and I’ll see ya’s later.
