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

Hi peeps!

Well ooh la la! It’s time to fish up a new outfit at [email protected], and this time it features some super-cute dresses, super-tousled bedroom hair, and super-hot sheer lingerie, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Yowza!

The I Want It, Real Love outfit set is the new ‘Fish for this’ set at the [email protected] mainstore. I blogged some info on how to get your fishing rod set up, here, so once you have that head to [email protected], plunk your butt on a chair, and get fishin’!

The set comprises: Omega applier and system layer lingerie in four colours (white, pink, lilac, and red); mesh skirts in the same colours (fits for Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, TMP, Tonic Curvy & Fine, Ebody, plus Standard Sizing); Omega applier and system layer garter stockings; two dresses (one light: pink and white, and one dark: red and black) in fits for Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, plus Standard Sizing; three hairstyles in platinum, auburn, and black; Omega applier and system tattoo layer lipstick (hot pink and red); and a pink heart choker. Phew, that’s a lot of stuff!

Mar’s 10L$ heels by AC Shoes can be found here on Marketplace.

Mar’s wearing the auburn hair here, and the red lipstick from the set, plus an awesome glittery freebie eyeshadow tester from Alaskametro on Marketplace. (Links to Catwa, Lelutka, and system tattoo layer options are here.)

This is the darker of the two dresses:

– 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!

Other items

Body: Slink Physique
Head: Catwa Catya
Nails: OEC Slink Clawz (not available anymore, sorry!)
Eyes: Avi-Glam (Christmas gift, probably also not available anymore)

– 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!

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!

 

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.)

– No mesh body or body parts required. This one works for classic avatars!
– No spend look. Completely free!

Hi, peeps!

I’ve been wandering around The Free Dove rather a lot lately, because they have some amazing stuff available. And, with Valentine’s Day looming into view, I’ve picked up some gorgeous freebie frocks for that in-world date you might be going on.

There won’t be much text in this post, because I’m just going to show you what I found. The store and item names are on the images themselves. I hope you find something here to put a sparkle in your Valentine’s eye! ;)

For the first one, I do have a bit of text. This dress comes with two generous texture HUDs, plus an additional colour-change collar, a (black-only) floufy shoulder section, and an optional black clutch. I’ve taken pics of them all, but only one pic of the collar, clutch, and flouf! (Note: the clutch will alter the pose of your right arm, so it won’t follow your AO’s motion, and the clutch will always be held by your side.)

And now, onto the others!

And for the skin and accessories, you’ll find the Skin by Kira at the Free Dove, and the jewellery set by RealEvil here on Marketplace.

The hair by Rezology is also at The Free Dove.

– No mesh body or body parts required. This one works for classic avatars!
– Also includes an all-in-one applier for: Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega
– Minimal spend look. Just L$1!

Hi, peeps!

Today I’ve got a luscious curvy shape for you, as well as cute-as-a-button pink hair, a lovely skin, and a slinky silky dress.

Isn’t that a super-sexy, curvaceous shape?! I’m completely in love with it, and it’s absolutely free! But before we get into that, I’m taking you to the Free Dove to pick up that slinky pink dress by Tiffany Designs, which is perfect for a hot Valentine date! (That link will give you a red arrow to follow, taking you directly to the dress’s location at the back of the store.)

The dress comes with tons of options, including clothing layers for classic avatars, an all-in-one applier for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and Omega, a mesh skirt piece (in several sizes), prim extras for those lovely floaty lace sections around the legs, and the pearl jewellery (necklace, bracelet, and stud earrings). Absolutely, bargainously free!

Next up, head to Marketplace to spend a measly L$1 on these shoes by Mayden Couture. They come with a pretty easy-to-use skin colour HUD, with presets to start you off and you can then fine-tune the shade to match your skin. An added bonus (especially for newbie girls who don’t have the money to spend on Slink feet) is that they come with sculpted feet. I know that Slink feet are gorgeous – heck, I own them! – but when you’re new to SL and don’t have the L$675 to spend on a pair of feet, you still want some nice heels. I noticed that, even at the Free Dove, most of the female shoes are now for Slink High feet, which is surprising. I would have thought to see a few more options for non-Slink wearers, especially since the Free Dove is all about helping newbies! I know that few people are really making shoes with included feet these days, but still… :(

And, finally, we’re heading to JStyle. This is the place you’ll need to join the group for.

NOTE: All of the JStyle groups send out a lot of notices (they tend to be multiple repeats of the same notice for several days, until a new notice comes out), so I strongly suggest that – if you stay in the group(s) – you disable group notices for each of them, and just check them manually once a week for new items.

The group is the JStyle Mesh Head group. (Don’t get as excited as I did, thinking you get a free mesh head!) You’ll need the group tag active, and once you’ve done that, click the box for the Mesh Head group gift on the desk just inside the store. Inside this box you’ll find that stunning curvy shape, the skin (complete with makeup – please note this is a system skin only. There are no appliers), the hair, a brow shaper, and an alpha layer to help you with the hair. Mar did need a hairbase under it, so she used the pink shade of Amacci’s free hairbase tattoo layers.

Another little note: This hair isn’t rigged 100% perfectly. I noticed that, when Mar moved her head, the hair sunk into her face a little on the right side. The hairbase tattoo made up for it, and since it’s absolutely free, it’s not anything to kick up a fuss about. I just like to warn my readers in advance, so make sure you get those hairbase tattoos to wear under the hair :)

If you’re up for joining another (free) group, you can pick up another lovely mesh hair in the store – just a little to the right. There are currently female and male mesh hairstyles absolutely free to members of the main JStyle group (again, very active, so disable group notices unless you want to be swamped!) Make sure you click the large images with the group tag active, not the smaller boxes underneath them.

Here’s a shot of the store and various locations:

On the left you can see the desk with the hair and skin etc gift in it. There’s a second gift of a pink mesh dress (that requires yet another free-to-join group!) so if you want to grab that, do! And on the right you can see the two group gift mesh hairs. Make sure you click the big pictures! I’ll show a close-up of the female hair at the end of this post.

Mar’s eyes and mesh lashes are both from default starter avatars, which you’ll find in your inventory’s library. The eyes are from the ‘Iliana’ avatar and the lashes from the ‘Leah’ avatar. You can edit the lashes to fit your eyes quite easily.

And here’s a better look at that stunning shape. As I note in the image, it’s NOT modifiable, but it states that it’s for Medium Standard Sizing, so any mesh clothing that’s in the M size should fit it. And honestly, that face is super-cute and so worth it!

Lastly, here’s a close-up of that other ladies mesh hair group gift from JStyle:
