– Absolutely free!

Hi peeps!

Have you checked out the Coco group and store yet? Well if you haven’t, you should! Cocoro Lemon is one of SL’s incredibly generous designers who puts out a whole wall full of fabulous freebies in her store. Mar has put together an outfit from just two of them.

This gorgeous backless knit dress has fits for Maitreya and both Slink Physique and Hourglass. It also uses the auto-alpha option of those mesh bodies’ HUDs, which saves a lot of fiddling around and clicking.

Add to that these stunning beige satin mules, with fits for the mid versions of Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza, and you have a lovely ready-to-go outfit from just one store!

Mar has finished her look off with some freebie hair by Charme at The Free Dove. This comes with a 13-colour HUD that lets you change the tone of the main hair as well as the streaks (click at the bottom corner of the HUD’s squares to change the streaks).

Here’s a back view of the dress. It may only come in one colour, but that colour reminds me of toffee. And now I’m flippin’ hungry! ;)

Here’s the full wall of gifts right now at Coco:

The Coco group is free to join, so have your group tag active, make your way to the Coco store, and go shopping for some great freebies!

– No mesh body parts required if you don’t have any. The dress and shoes have fits for both mesh bodies and classic avatars!
– Absolutely free!

Hi peeps!

Today’s Free Dove Feature is this lovely classic dress by Prism.

It comes with a 5-colour HUD, and it’s available in a bewilderingly-humongous number of mesh body fits. Deep breath: standard fitmesh sizing for classic avatars, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, Ebody, Slink Hourglass and Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy and Fine, and Maitreya. So you’re bound to find it will fit on you, no matter whether you’ve got a fully meshed-up bod, or you’re a vintage ‘classic’ gal!

Mar has teamed the dress with a gorgeous set of pumps by Baby Monkey, also at The Free Dove. These come in fits for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and for classic avatars. If you’re wearing mesh feet, you’ll need to use the ‘mid’ options for these shoes. The HUD comes with 10 classic autumnal and basic colours, so you’ll find a match to most things you’re wearing

Mar’s hair is another Free Dove item (in fact, everything except her mesh head and body is from there!) This lovely long style is by Firelight, who have several free mesh hairs at Free Dove. The HUD comes with 6 ‘full’ shades and 6 ‘wispy’ shades. And Mar’s earrings are from Lazuri at Free Dove, with 3 colours for the gems, and 5 colours for the metals.

– 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.

Hi peeps!

This is something you need to reeeeeally get your skates on for, because the offer is only available until 15th June 2018. Akeruka have put out their full Maia Bento head as a free group gift. Since the group itself costs just L$150 to join, you get the flippin’ stupendous bargain of a Bento head for that piffling cost. There’s no complaining about something as generous as that!

UPDATE: This offer is now over.

You’ll need to join the [AK] Heads News & Support group (paste that link into chat and click it – you’ll be asked to pay L$150 to join). Then, with the group tag active, head to the Akeruka store (Be warned: it’s crowded and a bit laggy!) and cam inside the female heads store. On the New Release wall – right in front of the main entrance – you’ll see the Maia head in the middle of three displays. There are two smaller servers (little boxes) under the main vendor, in case that vendor is lagging. You can use any of them to get the head.

You will need to right-click the vendor (or the server boxes) and select ‘pay’. Pay the vendor L$1 (it will be refunded to you immediately) and then wait to receive your head. Depending on how laggy the region is, that may take a minute or so. While you’re there, you can pick up the L$99 Akeruka Omega relay, so you can use Omega skins on your new Bento head!

This is an incredibly generous gift. Not only do you get a fully-functional Bento head, but you also get a myriad of other stuff with it. Perhaps the best one is a full set of body appliers (you’ll need to unbox those) in all of Akeruka’s skintones, for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega. So you can match your mesh body to the gift head right out of the box! You also get lots of various HUDs (I’ll post a few quick screencaps of just some of them at the end of this post) including a teeth HUD where you can change from normal teeth to vampire teeth, buck teeth, gapped teeth, etc, and add all kinds of braces and gems.

Mar has teamed this lovely head with some gifties and cheapies from [email protected]. The dress is part of a standard sizing set in 8 colours, that are just L$35 in the cheapie/freebie section, just to the right of the main entrance. The stockings are completely FREE (same area of the store) and come with Omega and Slink applier HUDs, as well as system layers. The hair is part of the current big ‘Fish for This’ outfit at [email protected] And, lastly, the shoes are from a L$20 set of three (for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza) from Preferred Boutique, available here on Marketplace.

And, boys? You’re not left out, either! Join the Akeruka group in readiness, because the male gift Bento head will be released on 16th June 2018!

Finally, here are some random screenshots, taken from the main head HUD, the animations HUD, and the teeth HUD.

– 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!

– 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!

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!)
