– 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!

– 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!

– Mesh body parts required; these appliers will only work on mesh heads!
– Minimal spend look; absolutely free!

Hi peeps! Well, today Mar got a slightly-belated Christmas present: the Catya Bento mesh head by Catwa. I’ve had my eye on it for ages, and finally splurged on it, as well as a discount skin applier by Deetalez. I’m absolutely thrilled to bits with how she looks now! This is her new bare-face look:

So, of course, now I’m on the hunt for cheap and free Catwa appliers, and wow did I find a little treasure trove tucked away in the prettiest store I think I’ve ever seen in SL. If you’re after gorgeous makeup appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Genesis mesh heads (as well as a plethora of nail appliers for Maitreya hands) look no further than the delightful Shiny Stuffs!

Can you get a full mesh body avatar look for just L$1? Yep!

 Gifts & Freebies  Comments Off on Can you get a full mesh body avatar look for just L$1? Yep!
Nov 122017
 

– Mesh body parts required, well… because this IS about a mesh body!
– Minimal spend look, just L$1!

Hi peeps!

Mesh bodies and heads have hit the grid in a big way over the past couple of years, but the one thing most of them have in common is that they’re flippin’ expensive! Not good when you’re trying to live an SL4Nowt-y kind of life, but I have a solution for you, and it’s the free mesh body by The Mesh Project.

The body is feature-limited (as you would expect from a free version of something that normally costs several thousands of L$!) but it comes with a lovely selection of skins, plus a free dress and three heights of feet. I’ve even found a pair of dollarbie heels on the Marketplace, which match the colours in the dress and work with the free version’s Style Mode HUD!

Here, Mar is wearing a combination of the Linden Lab default avatars ‘Shawna’ and ‘Maria’ (which we all have in our inventories). The colour match with the TMP skin tone is 99% perfect, which was a fabby surprise that I really wasn’t expecting!

(Note: The dark line down the inside of her arm in the following pic is a shadow, not a flaw in the body or its skin.)

Mar has teamed it with some gorgeous freebie jewellery by RealEvil:

And some great dollarbie heels for TMP Mid feet by Horacia Hoof of H.H. Designs:

Lastly, the hair in the first piccy (and the one below) is  from Rezology at The Free Dove, and – again – is absolutely free!

Hop behind the cut, because shopping for the TMP freebie and then styling it using their Style Mode HUD is a little bit complicated, so I’ve create a tutorial to help you out :)

We’re up all night to get Slinky!

Hi, peeps!

It’s been a while since I’ve messed with a song title for a blog post, so have some Daft Punk earworminess for a Wednesday afternoon ;)

Today’s second post is all about cheapie Slink applier nails. This morning, I set my Markeplace search to slink AND nail NOT demo, checked the 0L- 10L price range, and bought some fabby nails for just a few L$.

– Mesh body parts required (although check out the Weaponized Sugar nail appliers I’m showing, as they work with their free prim nails!)
– Minimal spend look

This one’s going to be quite long because I want to show the nails on Mar’s Slink hands, but also the full HUDs so you can see the colours you’ll get, so hop behind the cut!

Group Gifties Galore from Legendaire!

Jun 282017
 

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 :)

Aaaand the second post from me today is a lovely group gifty skin and shape pack from Shine!

– No mesh body or body parts required. This one works for classic avatars!
– No spend look. Completely free!

This pretty skin is part of a six-makeup pack of the ‘Amy’ skin in tan, which is a group gift right now at Shine. Join the Shine group (it’s free!) and head to the store, and you’ll find the group gift on the back wall. Just to your right – if you have a mesh body – you’ll also find appliers (all skin tones in one HUD) for most mesh bodies as well as Slink hands and feet, for just L$10 each. (The Slink body applier also works with hands and feet; the separate hands/feet appliers are for people who have those but don’t have the body.) As well as the six skins, you’ll also find in the folder a (no-modify) shape, lots of different freckle, cleavage, pubic hair, and teeth tattoos, and a brow shaper. Mar is wearing the shape and the ‘smokey’ makeup skin for this post.

Right now, due to the time constraints of a brand new small person in her life, Love Foxdale of Shine can’t devote the time that she would like to SL, and so she’s put out this gorgeous group gifty and is also hosting a sale at her store (all clothing items are 90% off!) while she decides whether to retain a small in-world store or move to Marketplace-only until she’s ready to return to SL on a more regular basis.

Thank you for the gift, Love, and enjoy every minute with your new precious baby girl. They grow up so fast!
