– 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!

– No mesh body parts required. This one’s for system avatars!
– Absolutely free!

Hi peeps!

I’m feeling the 70s glam today with this fab red sparkly jumpsuit from Spyralle, which can be found at The Free Dove this month as part of the February Hunt there.

You need to join the Free Dove group and have your group tag active while you click on the hunt items. More info about the Spyralle gifts and the other two stores participating in the February hunt can be found by clicking the hunt kiosk on your left when you land at The Free Dove. For this Spyralle hunt you’re looking for teeny little green gift boxes with purple bows.

And, since we’re going full 70s here, we need some big floofy hair, which I found in the shape of this big fatpack of mesh hair by Sentinus, also at Free Dove on the wall dedicated to free hair. It comes with a 20-colour-change HUD containing lots of naturals and some pretty pastels:

Lastly, the makeup is from a big freebie pack from Alaska Metropolitan, here on Marketplace.

The skin is from the default Kimberley avatar and the eyes are from the default Iliana avatar, both of which can be found in your inventory’s Library section, under Clothing > Initial Outfits. The shoes are also from the Iliana avatar :)

– 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:

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!

Freebie quickie: Eyeshadows, eyes, and jewellery gifts at Musa!

– Works for both mesh bodies and classic avatars
– No-spend look (absolutely free!)

Hi peeps!

Another post from me today, to give a quick heads-up of some great little makeup, eye, and jewellery freebies at Musa! This link will take you upstairs at the store and, if you look on the wall by the stairs, you’ll see some lovely eyeshadows. Under the main images the word ‘tester’ is in mesh letters. Click that, and you get a wearable freebie single-colour sample of that eyeshadow!

The ones with ‘demo’ underneath them have ‘demo’ written somewhere on the face, but the ‘tester’ ones are fully wearable. As a bonus, they include not only Omega appliers (which will work on any mesh head, with the correct Omega relay) but also tattoo layer makeup for classic avatars!

Then, if you turn to the left, you’ll find more testers, this time for two pairs of eyes. As before, click the word ‘tester’ and – as before – you’ll get applier and system eye versions in a single colour :)

Finally, cam downstairs to find the Subscribe-o-matic kiosk. If you join up (it’s free and doesn’t take up a group slot) you’ll get a gorgeous eyeshadow palette in 8 colours (Omega appliers and tattoo layers) plus some earrings with a massive 16-colour customisable HUD plus 5 metal options!

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!
