– Dress fits both mesh and system bodies. Shoes for mesh bodies only.
– Dress, necklace, eyeshadow all free. Group join fee for hair. 7 seas fishing rod needed for boots & lipstick.

Hi peeps!

Just a quickie Free Dove Feature today, and it’s a rock chick look that I abso-flippin’-lutely LOVE!

The dress is a fantastic freebie from Rebel Hope at The Free Dove. It comes with a 10-colour HUD for the dress and 4 metal options. Including fits for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, as well as Standard Sizing, this is a hot one for mesh and system bodies alike. (I’ll leave you to discover the stunning back view of it!)

Mar’s eyeshadow is the freebie ‘Wytch’ tester by Alaskametro. You can find it for Catwa and Lelutka heads, as well as system tattoo layers here on Marketplace. Mar’s lipstick is from the current ‘Fish for This’ outfit at [email protected]. This comes with system tattoos and an omega applier. You’ll need a 7 Seas fishing rod (which you can buy outside the [email protected] store) to get the entire Fish for This outfit. There’s a new outfit every two weeks, released on a Wednesday.

Speaking of that Fish for This outfit, these are the amazing boots that are also part of it! These come in fits for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Tonic.

Have you bought a mesh body but not yet made the plunge with a mesh head? You might be struggling to match or hide your skin tones at the neck, but I’ve got the perfect solution for you! This lovely little choker from Ezmerelda is absolutely free at The Free Dove, and it can be resized to fit any mesh body. No more visible neck seams!

The pricey item in this look is the hair by Sintiklia. It’s one of the many group gifts on the wall in the store, and it comes with four ways to wear it (via a styling HUD) and a fabby 12-colour HUD. The Sintiklia group costs L$250 to join, but it’s so worth it. Group gifts galore, plus lucky letter boards as well!

Here’s a pic of the current group gifts. They all contain full fatpacks:

Free Dove Feature: FurtaCor dress & heels

– Mesh body parts required for the dress & shoes
– Dress & shoes are free. 50L for skin, group join fees for hair & jewellery

Hi peeps!

Here’s another Free Dove feature for you, with a gorgeous texture-change dress and shoes from FurtaCor. I love this, because there are so many mix-n-match options for plain colours and patterns between the main body of the dress, its drapey section (totally a word, and totally because I can’t think of the proper word!) and the shoes.

You’ll find the dress at The Free Dove. You’ll need to be in the (free-to-join) Free Dove group, and to have the ‘Blessed by a Dove’ group tag active when you click in order to get the item.

The dress is rigged for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, and TMP bodies, while the shoes are rigged for Maitreya, Slink, and TMP. Mar’s opted for the pretty red floral option here, but as you can see from the HUD you can chop and change multiple options, so you can have a plain-colour dress, a patterned dress, patterned dress with plain drape, and plain dress with patterned drape. You can also have plain or pattern on the shoes. I love outfits that come with this much customisability! (I’m really doing well with the new words here, aren’t I? lol!)

Gotta just show the fabby shoes as well. I really love this style!

Moving on to the skin, and this gorge ‘Dreams’ Omega applier (for both face and body) is a 50L offer by 7 Deadly Skins. It comes with the red lipstick already on it, and it was initially put out for July 4th, but it’s still on the desk in the mainstore, so if you want it, hurry over there to pick it up! (Guys, you’ll also find a completely FREE shape for the Akeruka ‘Leon’ head that was recently a free gift on the desk, so if you have that head, that’s one you might want to pick up, too.)

Mar’s eyeshadow is another lovely freebie tester by alaskametro. This one’s the ‘Soiree’ version (Marketplace links to: Lelutka, Catwa, and Omega versions). Alaska is so incredibly generous to offer one shade of each of her makeups absolutely free, as wearable testers.

Mar’s hair is the July group gift from Truth. As I’ve mentioned several times before, if you can stump up the L$350 join fee for the Truth VIP group, it is SO worth it! Every month you’ll get a full fatpack – usually including a styling HUD for even more options! – of Truth’s gorgeous hair. This lovely ‘Gwen’ style has options for a braid, flowers, or nothing around the pulled-back loose bun, as well as many different options for the bangs/fringe and little wispy bits.

Finally, another group with a join fee is Kunglers Fashion Design. For the L$50 join fee this month you’ll get this beautiful jewellery set. The ‘Dalva’ rings come with gem options for crystal, topaz, and tourmaline, and the ‘Jeska’ earrings come with gem options for quartz, topaz, tourmaline, and obsidian.

– Some items are for mesh bodies, others work for classic avatars. Look closely at each ad image to see what’s what!
– 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!

Free Dove feature: Hilly Haalan dress

– 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.

A full Bento head for just L$150? Don’t mind if I do!

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.

Hi peeps!

Another quickie (ooer!) from me today. There’s a lovely unisex group gift hair out at Dura at the moment, with a 12-colour HUD. Just join the Dura group (it’s free) and head to the store with your group tag active. Right at the back you’ll find the vendor for the gift!

– Some mesh body parts required, but these gifts include some system skins, too!
– Group join fee of L$50 required

Hi peeps!

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I blogged about the 7 Deadly Skins Anniversary Event? The store is giving away a new group gift every WEEK for five months, and the group join fee has been reduced to just L$50. And this week’s gift is a doozie! For both men and women there’s a box behind the reception desk, each containing five past gifts. These include Omega appliers as well as some system skins. Whether you’ve just picked up a mesh body and head or you still love your system body, you need to grab this one!

I’ve put a few screenshots behind the cut. I could take pics of all but one of the female offerings, but since I don’t have a male mesh avatar (and I really need to re-do my male system avi!) I’ve just included screenshots of the boxes for the guys.

Hop behind the cut!

In the pink with 7 Deadly Skins & Legendaire!

– 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)

ETA: I couldn’t resist it! I had to show the yellow dress, too!

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 :)
