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.

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.

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!

Hi, peeps!

Wow. I can’t believe that Mar’s been in-world for five years now! I know I’ve not been blogging as much lately (RL is pretty busy and I don’t have much energy to run around and find freebies/cheapies, or write up long illustrated tutorials), but I just had to celebrate the occasion with five new looks, all culled from Marketplace (with one in-world group gifty).

Hop behind the cut, for five fabby, cheapie looks!

The other limited-time offer also ends today, and that’s for the stunning Eternal Eyes in the ‘peak’ shade, from IKON.

Hi peeps!

There’s a gorgeous blue mesh dollarbie necklace waiting for you at the Bliensen + MaiTai store at the Winter Fair.

A tip to find the shop, as there’s a central landing point: fly up above the stores and towards the red beam. The Bliensen + MaiTai store is at the very back of the eastern side of the sim. The fair runs until December 15th.
