– 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!

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:

Oh, oh, retro!

If you follow Mar on twitter you’ll have seen her squealing about the awesome stuff available at the Retro Swap Meet on The Wash sim. Prices are as low as L$10 or less, and there’s tons of stuff, from 1920s glamourpusses to 50s and 60s vixens and 70s foxy chicks. Guys, there’s some nice retro pieces available for you, too!

Mar’s put together a great summery look from three pieces bought at the Retro Swap Meet (L$10 per item, so a total of L$30) plus two group gifts.

The hair is a fabulous subscribe-o-matic gift from Truth Hair. Battle your way through the crowds (the store is always packed) and – if you’re not already in the subscribe-o, give it a click and wait until you’re registered. Once you see that you’ve been added to the database you (and anyone already in the group) can click again, choose ‘history’ from the menu and navigate to the most recent notice, dated May 26th. Click the relevant number and wait until you’re sent the gift. Inside you’ll find a full fatpack of the gorgeous Jessie mesh hair.

Mar’s Micha Top (tropical) is from the Artilleri stall at the Retro Swap Meet. You’ll get a pack of three tops for L$10 there. Her shoes and jewellery are from the Ear Candy stall, here. Her capris are from the free Aqua Halter and White Capris set from Moulliez, here on Marketplace. And, finally, her (hilariously-named!) Studious Tart glasses are from a humungous fatpack sent out to members of the Nomine subscribe-o-matic.

The Retro Swap Meet finishes on June 6th, so you have another week to check it all out :)
