– Some mesh body parts required (for the heels) but the dress can be worn by classic avatars!
– Group join fee of L$350 required for the hair

Hi peeps!

There are some gorge new items out at The Free Dove, so I thought I’d take you through some of them over the next couple of weeks. I’m kicking off with this fantastic freebie dress from Hilly Haalan. It comes with a super-generous HUD containing 30 colours each for the skirt, top, and neck section:

The dress comes as a fitmesh version (which Mar is wearing here on her Maitreya body) as well as standard sizing and alpha layers, so it can be worn by both mesh avatars (using the alpha cuts on their mesh body HUD) and by classic avatars using the system body.

Mar has teamed the dress with the L$20 My Bloody Heels (Marketplace link) by Mirus. They come with a 6-texture HUD and contain heels rigged for Slink, Maitreya, and TMP.

Mar’s hair is the new VIP group gift from Truth. This group is SO worth the L$350 join fee! Every month (there or thereabouts) you’ll get a new hairstyle in a full fatpack of colours.

Lastly, a big spendy purchase that’s definitely not Nowt-y, but the Genus Project have just released the group-only beta version of their first Bento mesh head, called Genus. It’s available for L$3000 at the Genus Project mainstore, but you’ll need to be in the group (free to join – click here for the group link) and have your group tag active before you purchase in order to get it. The full priced head, when released, will be L$5500 (yes, I made a typo in the pic of Mar at the bottom of the post!) Remember to try the demo first!

This is a lovely head, whose skins match The Skinnery’s body appliers. You’ll get three tones in the beta version: bronze, (which Mar is wearing), ‘brownie’, and peach. The full head, once released, will contain all skintones. And, of course, everyone who purchased the beta version will receive a free upgrade to the full version.

The early access offer ends on Monday 18th June.

– This one’s a mixture of mesh and non-mesh avatars. Read on!
– Minimal-spend look!

Hi peeps!

Some fantastic news for those of you who have just picked up a new mesh head and/or body and want to get some great skins for it. 7 Deadly Skins is approaching its 5th anniversary, and designer Izara Zuta has a ton of treats in store!

First up, the group join fee has been reduced to just 50L$ for almost a whole year! So grab your alts and saddle up to join the 7 Deadly Skins group, because gifts are generous, events are plentiful, and this is a group well worth joining! Even if you’ve not yet hopped onto the mesh head-n-body bandwagon, there will be system skins and shapes as well, so this is one you want to be in!

Before we get into the makeup, this is the first week’s offer for the ladies: the Becky skin. This comes in four skintones (apricot, caramel – which Mar is wearing here – oak, and walnut) and includes Omega appliers for both head and body. It also includes versions both with and without brows, in case you want to apply your own preferred brows. If you want to use this on your mesh head and body, they need to be either Omega-compatible out of the box, or you’ll need to pick up the relevant Omega relays for them. (For example: if you have a Catwa head and a Slink body, like Mar does, you’ll need the Omega relays for Catwa and Slink.)

In this gift you also get a modifiable shape (not shown here), and a brow-shaper. Here’s a shot of the bare-faced skin, before Mar slaps on the lippy!

Guys, you’re not left out either! Here’s the first week’s gift for you. The Dio skin includes Omega face appliers in caramel, clay, steam, and taupe with options for facial hair (the normal versions have a light five o’clock shadow, and the B1 versions have facial hair as shown in the smaller inset pic below), plus Omega body appliers with (V2) and without (V1) body hair. There’s also a Signature body applier for the taupe version.

Now onto the other goodies! Legendaire have a new group gift out: this gorgeous Cora texture-change maxi dress! It comes with fits for Slink (Physique only), Belleza, and Maitreya, plus Standard Sizing. It also includes a pair of heels (not worn here).

The Legendaire group is just 49L to join, and soooo worth it. There’s a ton of group gifts available, some of which I’ve blogged before. This dress, though, is gorgeous: sexy enough for a night out and bright enough to wear to a tropical party night at a hot beach location in-world! There are four possible textures to use, including a stunning yellow one that I almost used for these piccies.

The scarf, hair, and jewellery are part of a 29L (yes, I goofed again on the pic text above; what is it with me and fumbly-fingers lately?!) offer just outside the door at Legendaire: the Donatella set. This comprises hair with a 10-colour HUD (all the natural shades you could want, from blonde through to black), a texture-change scarf with 10 pattern and 10 solid colour options and multiple colours for the gems etc, the earrings and bangles (I did size down the earrings by about 40% – they rez absolutely huge and Mar doesn’t wear enormous hoop earrings). There are also two clutch bags with different holds and a 10-colour-change HUD.

The eyeshadow is this gorgeous Bali free tester from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. (That link takes you to the Catwa applier, but this link will take you to the search for Bali which also includes options for a Lelutka applier and a system tattoo layer.) Alaska has lots of free wearable testers available there, so check them out!

Lastly, here’s a screenshot of the notecard from 7 Deadly Skins, which details all of the offers. Remember to check every week for the new gift skins!

Happy anniversary, Izara, and thank you for all the gifts!

Head: Catwa Catya

– Mesh body parts required for some items, but not all
– Minimal spend look (initial purchase of fishing rod required for most items)

Hi peeps!

Let’s get this out of the way first: you have no idea how much of a struggle it was not to turn that headline into a joke about having a fishy [email protected] No idea at all ;)

ANYway!

In yesterday’s post about the lucky boards at [email protected] I mentioned that the ‘Fish for This’ outfit was probably going to be changed out at the weekend, which was why I wasn’t going to blog about it. But it turns out there’s another week to go! So here’s a blog post about some of the items you can win if you have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod and park your butt at [email protected] to cast for the New Year Grab Bag of goodies.

There are 20 items to fish for, and they include clothing, hair, footwear, and decor items, including some very generous colour and texture-change HUDs. But, before we get into what you can catch, you’re possibly wondering how the heck you fish for this stuff! Hop behind the cut for info and then for pics of some of the items :)

– Mesh body parts required (except for the Baby Monkey boots, which also work for classic avatars)
– Minimal spend look (most of it’s free!)

Hi peeps!

The lucky boards at [email protected] have been refilled with new goodies, so I sent Mar over there to plunk her butt on a chair and play the “I can click faster than you can!” game, while at the same time doing some last-minute fishing for the [email protected] “Fish for This” goody bag of 20 random items. (I won’t blog any of that, because I think it changes over today, so I’ll probably send her back again to fish for the new outfit tonight).

I’m just going to show some of the fabby new lucky board items in this post. Most of them come with multiple-colour HUDs, and the mesh items come rigged for several bodies as well as Standard Sizing.

First up, this lovely snuggly Wilora argyle dress, which comes with an 8-colour HUD for changing textures. Mar has teamed it with these fantastic Anais Tall Boots by Baby Monkey, which are just 10L$ on Marketplace, for a super-generous 32-colour HUD (including brights, jewel tones, neutrals, and soft pastel shades). These are especially fab because they can be worth either with Slink High feet or on a classic avatar!

Next, for a super-sexy Dita Von Teese look, the Ava Bustier & Pencil Skirt. The skirt is black-only, but you get a generous 8-colour Omega HUD for the top (and, for classic avatars, clothing layers, too!) Mar has teamed it withe the JLO Heels by Legendaire, which are 59L$ in the ‘Recommended’ section of the Legendaire in-world store (head toward the Outlet area to find it). They come with two HUD options: 10 plain colours (with the ability to mix and match between the upper, insole, and heel) and 4 pattern options for the shoe upper. They fit Slink High, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

This gorgeous Taban Brocade Poncho is also in the [email protected] lucky board, with a 10-colour HUD that’s filled with lovely colour options.

Bring your Daisy Duke attitude with this great little Omega applier set. The Connor Tied Flannel Top comes with a 12-colour HUD, as well as a bonus pair of jean shorts! And for classic avatars these also come in clothing layers :)

Next up, this drop-dead-sexy dress with a tentacle twist and a 12-colour HUD!

And, lastly but not leastly (totally a phrase that I didn’t just make up) this cute-as-a-button Crushed Silk Pouf Dress with… erm NOT a 5-colour HUD as stated in the image below but a TEN-colour HUD (oops!)

Mar’s hair throughout this look is Truth’s December 2017 VIP gift: Tinsley. If you can scrape up the 350L$ to join this group it’s sooooo worth it. Every month you get a massive fatpack of exclusive Truth hair with multiple styling options!

Other credits:

  • Head: Catwa – Catya
  • Body: Slink – Physique
  • Skin: Deetalez – Octavia

Hi, peeps!

It’s been a while since I’ve messed with a song title for a blog post, so have some Daft Punk earworminess for a Wednesday afternoon ;)

Today’s second post is all about cheapie Slink applier nails. This morning, I set my Markeplace search to slink AND nail NOT demo, checked the 0L- 10L price range, and bought some fabby nails for just a few L$.

– Mesh body parts required (although check out the Weaponized Sugar nail appliers I’m showing, as they work with their free prim nails!)
– Minimal spend look

This one’s going to be quite long because I want to show the nails on Mar’s Slink hands, but also the full HUDs so you can see the colours you’ll get, so hop behind the cut!

Group Gifties Galore from Legendaire!

Hi, peeps!

Yesterday I promised to blog more about the group gifts from Legendaire, but after heading back to the store today I realised it would take several posts to show the gazillions (ok, lots – lol!) of things you can grab from there, all for the measly cost of the L$49 group join fee. So instead of putting on lots of clothes, I’ve taken screenshots of all the gift walls so you can see how generous this group is!

– No mesh body or body parts required. Many of these work for classic avatars! (Also with several mesh bodies and heeled feet.)
– Minimal spend look. Just L$49 for the group join fee!

First up, as you enter the store you’ll find this wall full of the current gifts. Most of these are full outfits that come with footwear as well as fitting several mesh bodies and standard sizing:

The group join kiosk is just there to the right. And once you’ve picked up all of those, take that teleporter to the Freebies and Discounts section of the store, where you’ll find two more walls of free stuff!

Outfits, accessories, heels… you name it, it’s there! You’ll also find some L$10 ‘mystery prize’ boxes dotted around the store, and in the lobby area where you first enter, on the far wall to your left, you’ll find another lot of cheapie deals for the various weekly events like 50L Friday.

Here’s your taxi to Legendaire,  and here’s a link to join the group (join cost of L$49). Have fun filling up your inventory!

 

A quick gifty from Legendaire

Hi, peeps! No, I haven’t forgotten you. I’ve just been really busy lately! However, as you’ll see from the pic in this post, Mar finally has a mesh head – yay! Lots of pulling of gacha machine handles at the Arcade got her a gorgeous head from Genesis Lab, plus several different skin appliers and makeups.

Anyway, this quicky post isn’t about the head. It’s about this sexy group gift from Legendaire. The group costs L$49 to join and there’s a metric crapton (which is totally a real weight!) of gifts at the store, in two different locations. I’ll be blogging a few more of them hopefully over the next week or so, but I wanted to make a quick post-and-run just so you knew I’d not disappeared completely off the grid again!

– No mesh body or body parts required. This one works for classic avatars! (Also with several mesh bodies; see the pic below)
– Minimal spend look. Just L$49 for the group join fee!

This particular gift is a shirt and miniskirt outfit called Amaya 2. As shown on the image, the shirt and skirt come in fits for Standard Sizing (which classic avatars can wear), Slink, and Maitreya. There’s a HUD for both, which gives four single-colour options for the shirt and four patterns for the skirt.

I didn’t get a pic of the boots, which are really nice knee-high platform ones of black leather with gold buckles, but those have fits for classic avatars, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Isis and Freya, and Maitreya.

Back soon with more posts and pics, I promise :)

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine!

Sorry about the radio silence, peeps. Mar’s computer fall down go boom! I’m back up and running now, though, and – since it’s suddenly turned lovely and warm here in the UK – I’m bringing you a fabby little summer L$55 dress/bag/earrings/shoes combo bargain, plus some L$39 sunnies!

– Mesh body parts required
– Under L$100 for the whole look

The outfit is from one of my favourite new stores: Legendaire. Teleport in and look on the left wall, under the Fifty5 Thursday image, for this mesh Camille Maxi Dress. It comes with two texture-change HUDs: one with ten gorgeous summery prints, and one with five solid colours. Both top and skirt can be changed separately, which allows for tons of different looks!

You also get the bag, earrings, and shoes. These aren’t recolourable, but you get the bag with both an arm version (shown here) and a hand version. Both of these contain built-in animations.

You will need a mesh body to wear this dress, since it contains no alpha layers. The mesh body options it comes in are:

  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus

The shoes come in:

  • Slink High
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Mar’s sunnies are from the store opposite Legendaire: PopArt. (Just turn around when you’re at Legendaire, and PopArt is right in front of you.) This is a fantastic little place containing oodles of brilliant mesh items, and – as an added bonus – they currently have a 50% off sale running, so scoot over there and pick up some bargains! These Celine Sunglasses come in five colours: black, blue, pink, red, and white. Check out the (free-to-join) group, too. Lots of group gifts on the middle wall, including a cute-as-a-button holdable spring pupper!

Mar shot the above two pics at the gorgeous Bali Skybox location from ReBourne.

Edit: I had to get a pic with that adorable spring puppy from PopArt. Isn’t he a sweetie? (And yes, I only noticed I’d forgotten to remove Mar’s bra layer after I’d take these pics and logged out – lol!)

Slinky cheapies at Legendaire

– Partial mesh body or body parts required (for the shoes). Otherwise, this one works for classic avatars!
– Minimal spend look. Just L$10!

Hi, peeps!

Yesterday I visited Legendaire (mainly because of their gorgeous freebie gown at The Free Dove, which I loved so much I decided to check out the rest of their store) and I found a goldmine of cheapies and group gifts! I’m just showing you one cheapie today, which is perfect for a last-minute date night look for Valentine’s Day.

Rezzed out on the floor throughout the Legendaire store are several pink and black heart boxes, each costing L$10. They contain shoes, outfits, and even a couple of cute holdable pets. If you walk right through the store to the discount room, at the very back wall you’ll find the box that contains this Era Dress and Heels. This link should take you directly there (or at least give you a red arrow to follow and find the box.)

It comes with a HUD to change the dress into four different styles, as shown below:

I’ll be showing you some more of the goodies from Legendaire soon, but I have one last slinky gift to show in this post, and that’s a group gift from Amacci. It’s a sleek bun and hairbase set. You’ll need to join the Amacci group (it’s free to join; paste this link into chat and click it) and have your tag active as you click the group gift vendor. (Pick up the gorgeous heels available, too!)

This is a whopping fatpack available in all colours, and don’t forget that you can use those hairbases for other looks! (You can never have enough hairbases, I always say.)

A celestial lovely from Al Vulo!

Hi, peeps!

Today’s bargainous gifty is a lovely skin from Al Vulo!

You’ll need to join the Al Vulo! group (it’s free-to-join) and have your group tag active. Once you’re at the store, turn away from it and walk through the garden to the little wooden hut. You’ll find the gift inside there on the back wall.

I’m not sure how old this skin is, because it doesn’t have Omega appliers, and the appliers that it does have are old ones: Wowmeh, Lolas Tango, and Phat Azz. However, it also contains a system skin, plus appliers for Slink hands and feet.

I fell in love with this cute little butterfly fascinator when I was at the Swallow store. It’s a group gift (L$30 to join, and several group gifts on the wall) and it comes in eight colours.

Mar’s hair is a great dollarbie from FABIA on Marketplace. You get a 30-colour ‘naturals’ HUD with this, so you have all the basic blondes, browns, reds, and monochromes.

As for the dress, oh my goodness it’s a pretty one. It’s from AnaLee Balut, and you’ll find it as a group gift (with two colour options) in the ALB store. Be warned, though: the group does cost a lot – L$500 – to join. However, I love AnaLee’s textures and designs, and if you hover your cursor over most of the outfit sets in the store, you’ll find absolutely tons of group gifts and wearable demos. So, if you can scrape up the cash, I recommend it!

Lastly, the shoes. I was so happy to find these heels. They’re a L$65 bargain (ignore the mistake I made in the price on the image – oops!) from Ben’s Boutique on Marketplace, and they’re for Slink High feet only. You get a 16-colour HUD, plus options for the chains, so you can match them with lots of outfits.
