Odd Stuff.(Some Freebies).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

I popped over to Dutchie and once I’d snagged all the Freebies and had a wander around I decided to just rezz them and take a quick pic.  A pile of home clutter.  Books, newspaper, coffee (also inc a wearable cup)money and emm condoms! LOL.  There is also a bin bag (trash bag) but I’ve already set that outside my back door. Just plain old household junk and all free.

books

What else is free is a Camera Angle Control Hud which wowed me.  As soon as you put it on your SL camera angle moves into a much more natural position and when you walk through SL you get to see your surroundings in such a new and fresh way it was amazing! and then it broke!  When I next rezzed inworld I kept on getting script error messages no matter which sim I was on and there was no way I could go back to that daft seagull height to the camera angle so I went hunting for either a Free one or at least a reasonably priced one and I found this on the Marketplace.

OK I know you can’t actually see much but that’s me walking through SL with the camera at such a much more natural height and you can get even closer.  It really does make such an amazing difference I don’t think I could go back to not wearing it.  Everything looks so much better and in my small home it’s much more maneuverable.  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

As for the techie side of it honestly it seems to be idiot (Zan) proof.  You wear it and on the top left hand of your screen you get a small camera icon and you simply click on it and a window opens with some very simple preset angle choices or you can edit it.  I’m not going to try to explain it because you can get a Demo version of it but DON’T PANIC if it doesn’t work LOL it’s simply set to only work on the Ni sim which is where the shop is based.  Once I’d had a good try of the demo I bought it for only 120Lds and TPed home and it WORKS a treat.

I’ve given you the link to the Marketplace for the demo and also the sim link so you can try it out for yourself.

It ain’t happening! (Freebies).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

Sigh! after all of that I turn up and I’m sat there in the dentist office trying, and failing, to be brave only for them to come out and apologise because one of the pieces of equipments, I can only assume resembles the face clamp out of the Saw movie, was broken.  So I happily ran out with a big grin on my face until I realised that I now have to go through all of that again at a later date.

crossgreenurdbox

I’m revamping our sim which means updating the plants and trees so I popped over to one of my fav SL shops and Woo Hoo I found Freebies.  A charming old rickety mail box, some lovely details to it ie the key on the side, paintbrush etc but not only is this only 3 prims you get an even lesser prim version which is minus the key, brush, letters but still has all the charms but only 1 prim!

Right next to this Group Gift is a couple of tops.

crossgreenurbtop

Now it’s obvious that I have edited the picture.  When I’m showing paid for items I like to show them as true to colour as poss but when it’s a freebie I allow myself some artistic leeway but I will also give you an honest description.  The main body of this top is more a creamy white with the pastel almost childish flowers on it, the back panel of this top is a plain almost hessian texturing look to it.  It actually has a home-made look to it something a crafter or recycler would make.  You do get another colour, blue I think, but I ran out of time to try it on.

I’ll only give a quick mention of the hair as it’s a paid for item and there for I want to show you it’s true colours but of course since this is a Mina hair then you will be able to see from my many posts just like I’m a PumeC nut I’m a Mina nut and so you can see the sorts of colours that come as standard with Mina hair.  It’s only available at the Shiny Shabby event at the moment and since I literally only managed to squeeze my AV in there for a few minutes I want to do a better post about this hair and hopefully any new Freebies that maybe at this event.

If the first LM doesn’t take you right to the Group Gifts, and it probably won’t, simply follow the sign to the Mainshop but don’t walk straight ahead into the tree’s turn right and the main shop is there.

PS Smack the LM board for HPMD’s Christmas room.  Nothing is for sale but this “room” is a fantasy of swirling festive items a delight to the eye.

Clock Watching (Freebies).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

Just trying to take my mind off this afternoon (check my previous post) so I went mooching again and scored well.

Prim

I TPed over to somewhere where I knew there was some Lucky Boards and I was going to while away some time sorting through all my notes and as soon as I landed “Z” came up and I won this.  A simple prim and proper look if you’re into RP as a downy secretary it’s perfect as it happens because it comes as a two piece I’m keeping that simple mesh black skirt because everyone needs a LBD and in this case a LBS (little black skirt).

And then on the wall next to the Lucky Boards  I saw some “SL frees & offers” Group offers.  I’ve mentioned this inworld group before as it’s a really active group of people hunting down Group Gifts, Freebies, Lucky Chair and on and on.  You will also find a lot of shops have special offers out just for SL frees & offers members and that’s what this next dress is.

clockwhatching

OK I have a confession, not that I’ve edited the picture which I have done, but  that this isn’t the whole dress.  This is one of those dresses that comes with a voluminous amount of flexi prims to create a massive skirt that undulate around you which is not really to my taste but since I’m killing time I snagged it and another SL frees & offers special offer.  As soon as I put the base dress on I thought I had made a mistake as it’s a great Spring/Summer mesh dress but nope this is the under dress for all of those, now binned, flexi prims.  Love it and you get 2 versions this one and one that has even more exaggerated hips to it.  The flowers at my waist are mine I just think they made a lovely addition.

PS the Flatties I’m wearing are also the ones I mentioned in my previous post and at Entice there are more Group Gifts, an MM board and a Freebie for all.

PPS A BIG Thanks to Faith.  We rent/own our own sim and trust me it’s not as expensive as you think or even that hard to managed so I honestly think you should think about it because apart from the prims you get to go crazy.  Which I did, I torn down my last house which I had loved but was now slightly bored with and have spent a lovely few days rezzing  a new home, landscaping, furniture and on and on and although we try to be fair with the prims we use I know I use much more than Faith but she NEVER says anything.  I think that’s because she too enjoys seeing someone making their dream home just like she has.  I’ll be taking pictures of it soon and giving you any relevant LMs if you like what you see and would like to buy it for yourself.

A Shortie (Freebies).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

As I was doing the 70s Hunt I got side tracked by the Group Gifts from Wicked and I’m going to have to go back again because I want the hunt prize as well, a lovely pair of retro wedge shoes.  Not sure if they’re SLink though but certainly worth a try asp as they come with a colour changing Hud.

The back of the top is 2 wide cross over straps and the shorts are cute with the laced up sides.  The shorts are a dark green and although they come with a Hud that just changes the colour of the laces and the rivets.

PS check out the background and see a cutie.

Cowgirl to Beach Babe (inc Freebies).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

I was so busy I missed the first “Colour Me Project Event” which is basically is for a short time in this case from the 10th to the 21st of this month a whole load of designers put out clothes, poses, props, home decor items and the only thing in common they have is a colour.  Last one was white and this one the colour theme is Blue.  I almost didn’t go because tbh blue is one of my least fav colours but knowing that Margaritta  has a small shop there I decided to pop over and I ended up treating myself.

cowgirl

A simple and cute shirt.  I’ve gone with a Cowgirl look because I simply like to dress in a character.  Before I settled on my shorts I tried on many other pairs, even Mag<3.B ones and they all looked great but yet again used my good reliable pair.  The thing that makes this shirt different is yet again with a lot of Mag items it comes with a colour changing Hud so in this case you get 2 choices of colours for the main body and I’m wearing the paler blue, and a choice of, ops I’ve forgotten but I’m pretty sure it’s at least 6, patterns for the pockets and cuffs.

cowgirl2

A lot of the stalls at this event have certain items with a sale sign on them and the Mag<3.B stall seems to have a lot of sale signs out.  Happily for me because this Bikin which I already had but I went and binned it in my latest round of invent cleaning is now only 20Lds so I quickly snagged it.  It’s just a cute, Kawaii, mesh bikini that I just like esp when I wear it with my coloured hair.

PS thats some bubble gum I’m blowing up and not some weird lip colour/shape LOL.

shoes

Since you can’t wear heels to the beach even in a SL world, I TPed home and threw up my pose cube and took a quick snap.  You will need SLink High Feet for these . A real nice gift from the Mag<3.B stall@The Colour Me Project Event.

Special mention to the clogs she has out there as well. I have them all inc the free pair from her main shop and I’m keeping them.  They’re just such a good pair of shoes and go with so many items I have.  They’ve turned out to be worth every penny and at the moment the Spring pair are at a reduced price of 30Lds and you even get a choice of clog and sock colours.  BEst of all you don’t even need SLink feet for them even though they look SLink like in quality.

OOOO I’m stood here in her mainshop and the Wall Of Freeness has just gotten bigger with the addition of some Dollarbies, 2Lds and a 10Lds item.  A lovely variety here, dresses, shoes, skirts, hair etc and I have almost all of them.

The hair the suit the look!(and even some freebies).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

I know I have shown you this skin before but as soon as I spotted this hair I just had to put it back on, more about that at the end of the post.

afro2

The hair called Dolce comes from Letutka and it wasn’t cheap(269Lds) but again when you find something that you know “you’re worth it” you just have to spend those Lindens.  A mix of mesh and prims tucked in there to add some movement.  Normally I would run away from hair like that but when it’s done as good as this then it’s not an issue.  I’ve put the link to the Marketplace shop and there but you need to pop into the inworld shop as there are some pretty decent freebies there.  The hair in the last picture is one of them and can be worn with or without the hat.  There are quite a few hairs there and some come with an enormous colour selection.

I don’t think the LM will take you to the hair department but there is a TP board if you need it.

afro

As you can see the hair goes perfectly with this Group Gift skin from PumeC.  I have shown you this skin before but the hair is a perfect excuse to blab on again about PumeC.  You do have to pay to join this group, 99Lds to be exact but for that you get instantly 5 skin packs inc this one and of course each pack contains ALL of the Appliers and since there seems to be a real profusion of new Appliers out there if you check out the wall on the side of the stairs then all of the new ones are there just waiting to be picked up.

Slight confession I had to pop a face light on but it was a very light one, I underestimated how dark the house I was in was and so without the additional light the pictures were just too dark.

afro3

I wear almost 90% PumeC skins so I will post the link to my Flickr Account so you can check out my pictures.  It’s not that I don’t think other shops do really horrid skins in fact I still have some which were group gifts or hunt items from other skin shops but what I really love about  PumeC  is its skin quality, price quality, applier quality and on and on.

Waving Goodbye (freebies n stuff).

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

As I’m working through my invent and dumping as much as I can I’m also re-checking places where I’ve either found brill freebies/groupies/cheapies or even items I think are worth spending Lindens on and Orsinired is one of these places.  Sadly since my last visit a lot of the stock that was originally there has now gone which is a real shame as one of my fav all round basic wearable jumper’s is now gone.   On the good side is this top, a sub gift and if you’re already a sub like me just pop over and subscribe and then resubscribe and the gift is sent straight to you .  There is also a group gift out and I’m going to assume it’s a free to join group but I didn’t have time to slap it and check it.

I’m off for my weekend away tomorrow so I packed up my little rental cabin on the new sim called Baja Cove.  I actually loved my first week there so I rented for a second week but now I’m going away it was time to pack up.  I only wish my RL break was a sunny as this sim but no rain is forecasted so for the North of the UK that’s as good as it gets.

The top I’m wearing is another freebie from Addams   It has that lovely tucked in the front bit which adds to its realistic look.  This top comes with a hud and some basic colours but it has one of those slider thingi’s which allows you to adjust the base colour to whatever shade you want.  I will confess that it took a few try of different trousers, jeans and in this case a pair of shorts to get the perfect fit but when you find it it’s just a great look.

Last but not least the hair.  I finally managed to get into The Chapter Four event and I’ve been trying for DAYS! and I was rewarded with not only a RARE from one of the Gachas there but also Mina’s new hair.  This is a brand new style and that bouffanted look is just stunning.  I remember a time in SL when “big” hair looked like a helmet but this is nothing like that and to me it screams of a modern retro look.  Priced at 125Lds just for this event so time to snag it before it ends.

Basic Fun Basic Freebies.

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

Once again a bit of a reblog for these tops.  I was meandering SL as usual and came across this freebie from BB (Beetlebones) which I do remember blogging about last year but since they’re just as good as ever and Spring is definitely springing here they’re too good to miss.  What you get is actually a pretty BIG pack of excellent basic mesh tops in a variety of colours, pink, grey, brown etc all pastels and springy (it’s a word!).

ortblue2

Fun shot, I forgot I had these kites in my invent and since in RL I can’t fly a kite to save my life I had just a bit of fun.

ortblue3

This is one of the other tops available from Beetlebones in yet again a big pack of not only sizes but colours and patterns.  They’re good, well textured basic tops which every invent needs.  There’s a lovely mix of items in Beetlebones from clothes to hair and lots of cuddlies.

The skort and trainers come from another pack of freebies from Formis Designs.  2 big fat packs of shirts a simple short-sleeved version and a vest styled one.  Loads of sizes and colours and in the case of the vests, textures as well.  So handy for anyones invent.  The trainers were such a good fit I forgot to try to see if there was a resizer.  The reason I call the shorts “skorts” is that it’s a lovely design of mesh shorts with a panel over the front so it’s a skirt/short combo.  I spotted this little design element straight away a lovely little added touch.  I’m not showing you the top that comes with the skort and trainers not because it’s not nice but the main body of the skort is white and the top was very much a grey/white.  Perfect to wear with other shorts, jeans etc but it didn’t match the skort as well as the tops I wanted to show you.

You will have to go to the little Formis Design shop which is in a little shopping mall and at this moment there is a really good hunt going on.  Spring is back hunt is the name and you’re looking for little gnomes.  I’ve actually picked a few up but not had time to unpack, although I do know that 1 items is a pair of SLink shoes.  Most items seem to cost just 1Ld but I’m sure a couple were also free.

Odds n Sods n Cheapies n Freebies.

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

I’ve been a bit of a RL snivelling wreck thanks to a cold so I’ve been taking it easy in RL and SL but I stumbled on some cheapies/freebies that did make me smile and so here is some of them.shoesThe Wash is back and it just gets better. Since everything is priced at 10Lds I went a bit wild.  So many SLink shoes, this pair came from the Petite Mort stall.  I’ve cropped this picture so close any flaws would be glaring but as you can see cheap in price but not cheap in texturing.

OK confession time, when I pick stuff up to blog I tuck it all into its own folder and date and name it and then file it away but I’ve lost all my The Wash items LOL.  I blame my cold so I popped back and grabbed another pair of shoes and this.

cat111

A tiny little Inch Worm LOL.  This is a full perm item which I haven’t looked at the details of what you’re allowed to do with it because I simply wanted it for my own use but I’m going to assume that you may repackage this and sell it but check out the TOS if that’s what you wish to do.

As always everything at the Wash is only 10Lds.  They’ve changed the stalls and now they’re boards, you will see what I mean when I get there, which actually makes it less fussy to check out whats on sale and it’s a great way to kill some SL and RL time.

After my time at The Wash I decided to Map Hop and I can’t believe I actually stumbled on a Poche satellite shop because I’ve actually just binned a whole folder of their items in an attempt to reclaim my sanity and some space in my invent, only to stumble upon more Freebies which are too good not to show you.

urbpoche

There is a whole selection of items from cool summer drinks to this full tray.

urbpoche2

The rezzable tray is a bit primmy but it’s linked and each piece on its own from the spoon to the tea-cup can be used as individual pieces.

urbflow2

And just 1 more picture but as usual even if you’re not interested in the items I’m showing you still pop over as there is much more of offer and when I get back inworld I’m going to check out the Poche mainshop to see if there is anything else new to me.
