Limited LAQ!

Hi peeps!

Post number two from me today, and you have to get your skates on for this one, because the offer is ONLY on for today: Sunday December 9th 2018. (It was also on yesterday, but I was offline that day and didn’t realise – oops!)

LAQ are selling their Noelle Bento mesh head – just for this weekend – for only L$300. The Marketplace link for both the demo and the full head is here, and here is a screenshot:

This head comes with the following:

  • the head itself
  • a modifiable shape
  • alpha for just the head
  • alpha for the head and body
  • brow shaper
  • skin applier (single tone, head only)
  • user manual notecard

Note, too, that this head is Omega-ready, so you can use your favourite Omega skins on it!

Because of the way that LAQ sells their heads and HUD separately, there is no HUD in the folder for this head. The main HUD sells for L$3000 and it works across all LAQ heads, but if you only want to be able to clear layers on this limited offer head, you can pick up the Clear Layers HUD for just L$50 at the LAQ mainstore:

If you join the LAQ group (it’s free, just paste this link into chat and click it) you’ll find the following group freebies on a table at the mainstore:

  • pale skin applier (single tone, head only)
  • snowflake on tongue with animation
  • eyelashes applier
  • eye reflections & shadows applier
  • mouth & teeth applier

The LAQ mainstore can be found here. And here – while Mar is stalking some lucky chairs! – is a quick screenshot of what she looks like after a little bit of shape-work. Her skin applier is an old one by The Plastik:

Hi peeps!

Well boys, it’s time to get those skates on and leg it to the Akeruka store, because your free anniversary Bento mesh head gift has just been released, and it’s absolutely gorgeous!

This offer will only be open until 1st July 2018, so hurry up and grab it!

The Akeruka group costs L$150 to join (link here) and you need to be in the group and with your group tag active in order to get the head. Go to the Akeruka store (be warned: it’s going to be busy and laggy!) and cam inside the male heads section of the store. Just inside the entry you’ll see three big images on the wall. You want the one in the middle. It looks like this:

Right-click either the main image or one of the two small boxes beneath it, and pay it L$1. You will be refunded that money immediately and then you’ll be sent your free Bento mesh head! (The two small boxes are additional servers, which the store has put out so the main server doesn’t get overwhelmed. Only pay the server ONCE and then wait.)

This is a fantastic gift from Akeruka. The guys in SL get short shrift when it comes to finding cheap and free items, and Bento heads are no exception. The average Bento head costs around L$5000, so you’re getting an awesome bargain here.

And you don’t get just the head! Inside the folder you’ll find a plethora of things, from all the various customisation and animation HUDs (screenshots of those will be further down this post) to a fantastic pack of ALL the matching body appliers in Omega format, for Signature, Slink, and Belleza bodies – in both shaved and hairy versions. (And, since they’re Omega, they might work on other Omega-compatible bodies. I think the only reason they’re called ‘Omega – Signature’ etc is because the mapping of the bodies is slightly different, and so things like nipples and muscles may not be 100% in the right place on other bodies. Give them a try on your mesh body, though, and see which one – if any – works!)

The HUDs come with lots of extra options, including brows and hairbases, facial hair, and eyes (both human and catlike/animal). You even get guyliner and lipstick (so you can get your goth on!) and facial scars and tattoos. Some screenshots of the HUDs are below:

Mar’s male look for this post comes courtesy of Caligula and Polo Paul. While the Caligula items are a bit out of the usual L$75 remit for most clothing etc on this blog, they’re well worth it when you see the sheer amount of options available!

The jacket costs L$99 and comes in fits for Adam, Signature, Aesthetic, Slink, plus two fitmesh options and standard sizing (which can be worn with non-mesh bodies). Inside each pack – once you’ve opened the one you want, you’ll find the jacket with turtleneck comes in 12 colour options! The boots are also L$99 and come in fits for Adam, Signature, Aesthetic, Slink, TMP, and standard avatars. (They’re also all re-sizeable with a single click.) Once you’ve opened your shoes size of choice you’ll find 12 colours, each with two versions (one with tiny studs around the sole seam, and one without). And finally, the jeans are from an outfit by Polo Paul, at L$55, and the hair is a freebie fatpack at the Exile store.

The head also takes other Omega appliers (if you have the Akeruka Omega relay, which is available in the store for L$99). Here it is with the latest male group gift ‘Ake’ head and body Omega applier from 7 Deadly Skins (the group is L$225 to join)

TMP freebie style sample post

Hi peeps!

This post is just a brief one showing just some of the free items available for The Mesh Project female bodies, which I blogged about yesterday. Mar picked up the female deluxe head and body, a skin, some brows, and some eyes, and then a buttload (!) of clothing and accessories. Rather than list everything here, I’m just going to post a few pics to give you an idea of what’s available. There’s tons more in the TMP boutique, and these clothes will fit both the full L$500 bodies as well as the free bodies that – until fairly recently – were also available (although the freebie body can only go up to the high heel height; the ‘ouch!’ height shoes won’t work on the freebie body).

So here we go with the pics!

Hop behind the cut for the rest!

Get your Oscars glam on, as TMP goes freebie!

– Mesh body parts required for all items
– Zero-spend look (unless you’re buying the heads and bodies)

Hi peeps!

Well the big news around the grid this week is the HUGE sale at The Mesh Project. Back in November last year I blogged about how to get hold of the freebie TMP bodies. These have now been withdrawn from sale and instead TMP are offering their full deluxe male and female bodies for L$500 each and their deluxe non-Bento heads (they don’t yet have any Bento heads) for L$500.

However, if you did pick up the freebie bodies the big news is that ALL of the clothing, footwear, and other accessories in the TMP Boutique are now absolutely free! So Mar’s alt decided to get some Oscars glam on after a humungous shopping trip that lasted almost two hours (and which was, frankly, rather exasperating and exhausting, thanks to the shopping HUD system there). But hey, free clothes and shoes, and they are gorgeous!

Strawberry Singh has a great blog post up with more details about both the sale on bodies and heads and the free clothing. I highly recommend watching her video, here, where she shows you how to use the shopping HUD and Style Mode HUD.

As the above image states, there is a caveat emptor, or ‘buyer beware’. This sale is only temporary, and while there are one or two rumours that TMP are going to be bringing out new Bento heads and bodies, there are even more (and bigger) rumours that this sale might be coming prior to a switch-off of the external servers that are required to run the whole Style Mode system, which is crucial for changing your clothes and skins, adjusting your heel heights and hand poses, etc. As many others are saying, I don’t recommend buying the TMP body and head as your main body and head. Fewer and fewer creators are making for it these days, but if you don’t change your clothing all that often, and/or you just want to kit out an alt in all-mesh on the cheap, then by all means head to The Shops and pick up the free clothing for the freebie body and/or the sale heads and bodies.

The sale is on at The Shops right now, but there is no indication of how long it’ll last for.

Hi, peeps!

I’ve been AWOL, I know. I’m really sorry about that, but RL is seriously kicking my butt of late. I wandered past the blog last night and realised I hadn’t posted since May. Eek! So here’s another wee post to tide you over. I hope I can get more time to get back to blogging soon.

I felt like going old-fashioned again, so I found this lovely little Regency-style dress by Duquesa on Marketplace:

Free-join weekend for the Baby Monkey Junkies group

Apr 062013
 

Hi peeps!

This weekend (6th and 7th April 2013) the Baby Monkey Junkies group is free-to-join. Normally the group fee is L$250, but Pixie occasionally opens it up for free, with a great gifty to be had.

Paste this link into chat and click it to join the group. Then, with your group tag active, head to the store and find the group gift board (it’s just around the corner from the desk area). You’ll need L$1 available to pay the vendor (the money will immediately be paid back to you; paying in that manner allows the vendor to keep track of your transaction and enables you to get re-delivery in the event of any inventory disasters!)

This is the current group gift you can get:

Pixie is very generous with group gifts, sending them out in group notices as well as placing them on the board. There are also tons of lucky chairs (some group-only ones, too, if the main ones are packed with people) and – further across the store – more lucky chairs with mesh clothing in them.

Oh! Oh! CoCo! Tons of group gifties from CoCo Design :)

There are a TON of gorgeous group gifts on the wall at CoCo Design. Mar picked up some of them and put together a few cute looks, together with some in-world and Marketplace offers.

Join the CoCo Design group [ group link – free to join ] and head to the store [ in-world store ]. The group gifts are on the West wall. Make sure you’re wearing your group tag, and get clicking!

The first look (*points up*) comprises the cute little Gift Tee & Denim Shorts set (the tee also comes in a green colour; hop behind the cut for a pic of that), plus the awesome mesh Suede Boots. Mar’s hair is a limited-time freebie from A&A on Marketplace: the Ludvika Hair in ‘dark brown’ [ link ] which is available free until March 5th 2013.

BOYS! The mesh boots come in rigged (can’t be resized) and UN-rigged (can be resized) versions, and there are fur-topped and non-fur versions, too. So, if you like to roleplay any historical avatars (or Gorean, or anything like that) then these boots will work just as well for a male avatar as they will a female one!

Hop behind the cut for more looks!

Here’s a gorgeous cheapie dress that I found at the Kunglers Outlet store:

It’s the Claudia Dress in ‘forest’ for just L$60 (there’s also a lovely pink version for the same price). I splurged a bit on some matching jewellery, too (L$150, but gorgeous!)

Mar’s skin is the current Al Vulo! group gift [ group link – free to join ] [ in-world store ] and her hair is a new, limited-time freebie from A&A on Marketplace: the Agnesa Hair in ‘mixed brown’ [ link ] – the promo price for that hair ends on 15th February 2013.

Mar’s shoes are the L$50 colour-change MIB Stilettos from HoC Industries [ in-world store ] and her eyes are the new group gift from IKON: the Lucid Eyes in ‘optimism’ [ group link – free to join ] [ in-world store ]. I’ll be blogging those eyes in detail in another post today.
