Revealing My New Model Xion ("Shawn")


Haha! At last Xion agreed to model for me - howsabout that!?!??! Sweet!
He's wearing the new board shorts from Swim (free), Stand for Something Timberland T (former freebie from Pariah Incorporated which is now defunct unfortunately), along with the orange Chucks from magi take (free), booN DDD370 hair black (from recent sale 80L), the stunningly realistic Max skin from Tellaq, worth all 1000L of it!

Just look at that face! Tank came with the Swim outfit, Vetro Eyes by Exodi, 150L/8 pack (no copy, come in both large and small, with and without veins, make a great gift!). Oh and I made that fantastic shape for him! Lol! IM me if you're interested! In the shape I mean!
BTW, just click any pic for a larger version!

Mystitool (free) smile, Truth Chalice hair, PC Ocean eyes, Lara Lucy skin (pale, smokey, red), Boom bikini

Sam from the giant communications company was here at last this afternoon and yes, my system is now steaming ahead at ADSL TURBO speed! So please, never again tell me (this means YOU Second Life) that the lag is due to my internet connection! HAH!

I am back on, up and running at least for a while this afternoon and then maybe later tonight for all those of you who noticed I was missing for the last 3 days!

SOOOOO glad to be back even if my bff Ruby will be gone for 3 months! ARGGGG!!!

Ruby, Sis (from the blog SL Toolbox Chicks and Onyx DJ fame) and myself unison dancing long after all the guests went home - this was Ruby's last night of dancing! AW! I'm so sorry I couldn't get a pic with Sis's face - will try again soon! Wearing just a conglomeration of things! Notice Sis and I are holding Smirnova Icee coolers. I made them, free, full perms! IM me inworld or here if you want one!


Moi in one of the new Tik Tok skins found at the Black and Blue, Boom eggplant hair from the Dressing Room Blue and I forget where the other stuff is from. Standing in my beloved Kook sim!

Tableau Summer Festival, Fashion is Love Hunt and Many Other Things!

Tableau
Lag not bad unless you have a dual core with 2 gigs RAM or less, lol, I advise using reduce lag tactics! That includes me!
Nice set up of carts in the street here and very cute sim!
There are deals to be had and freebies as well…
You’ll just have to go and walk around the whole thing! Lol!

-(fashionably dead) lemon and white print tank free
-Yummy has adorable sun-shaped drum for 10L – get several as they are no copy and make great gifts for your friends – you can then make music together! (BTW, I have a great conga drum and HUD that I got at the Burning Life Taiko Drummers performance a little while ago. IM me if you would like a copy too!)
-Clawtooth has a flat straight yellow blonde hair for 1L – her style is a bit like lamb
100% of the proceeds on some items goes to The Center for Cultural Diversity
Also a variety of moustaches in 5 styles and 6 colours, even pink
-Tres Blah has a gold and white unisex sports T 1L
-Pig as usual has the loveliest things for free: a grey and brown unisex shirt and a set of bikinis in 6 colours! Wow!
-Nylon Outfitter has the cutest little gifty things for 1L each, again no copy so they make great presents for your buddies! Nice big tasseled badge for your shirt, ridem ladybug, this cool stick with a sunflower and leaves on it – a summer welcoming stick (we still don’t have summer this year in Vancouver so it’s nice to see these things!) – and a wacky spiky golden mask – save for your next masked ball!

Pacadi Jasha
Lovely new skins in 4 lighter tones – they include
- 2 different Eyebrows
- Prim Lashes
- Eyelenses
- Manicure
- Facelight
-Eyebrow Shapes
Though you don’t need the facelight if you have the proper windlight settings. I found the eyebrows a little close set for my taste but overall a very nice design with a lot of different makes and only 250L/set

Also some lovely lingerie, dresses and shoes for very reasonable prices. My only objection is that the demos are 1L each for all demos in store. I understand why designers do it but frankly I don’t like to pay to try on goods
I also super indulged my av and got the Armadillo Plateau shoes in Ocean. I saw these when they first came out in a multi-coloured texture for like 100’s and 100’s of linden. These new ones are in somewhat more solid tones (plus purple, green, black) but still with that great scaly texture! And only 195 now! They are a club-type boot, the sculptie for which must be for sale somewhere cuz I have seen variations on this shape and got some free ones at Sole Sisters the other day though they were only 1L, I was not as happy with the white/silver texture as with this one

Broken Doll new shop
Two t-shirts (one for guys or unsex) in black and a black tutu dress with red tights here free as well as a Yummy Cupcake prize which I did not get!

Exile
Still has free hairs for guys and girls near the door. Seems like every time I go, I see a new hair I love. Today I got the Laya for 250L. It’s a large dramatic updo with two rolls in the back and straight fringe. There are also a separate set of dready type braids to add along the bottom AND a great pair of eyelashes too! I say great because they are the first pair of eyelashes that I have tried that fit with only a tiny adjustment and they are gorgeous! My first chance to wear prim eyelashes (since I found out the eyelash adjustment in the Appearance Editor has been borked since whenever!). I suggest checking the exact contents before you buy as I haven’t seen a hair here that comes with eyelashes before. This Laya comes in all colours, the demo purple is especially nice! I got the light blondes and am soooo happy.

Now I have bought 4 new hairs just this weekend! ARG!!! I’m supposed to be deleting inventory! Yesterday I spent hours reinstalling Emerald when I couldn’t even open the viewer at all when I got online. Then there were 20,000 items less than usual (57,000 something) and it took forever to refetch my inventory. So everyone is telling me I have to delete! ARG!!! Maybe I will just put some of it in boxes!

And speaking of new eyelashes..
*LP* design, .:::GARAGE:::.
Has 10 styles for 45L each. I didn’t try them – let me know how big your head is and how they work for you! Lol!
It’s now 80L to join the group tho there are some lovely gifts for group here. There are also some sweet skins for free

Fashion is Love Hunt gifts

The hunt object is a gold sculptie with a big dark pink jewel in it. They call it a “piece of gum” though it doesn’t look like gum to me, more like a rounded square – quite thick but in varying sizes. Much credit for this info (cool pics!) goes to SiselyBella at SL Toolbox Chicks blog

-*LP* design
There are two dark pink dresses here, one tight mini and the other a chiffon babydoll with jeweled bodice
One gold and pink square of gum near the floor here
another one on the shelf above and in front of you
This is the first find I have made on the hunt – there have apparently been some withdrawals…so please have fun!

Fashion is Love Hunt
Two objects embedded in the shelf here beside the presents

-Sassy Kitty

(discount area)
(Ganked) and still has a lucky chair and a present of a yellow set of jewellery here.

T18 Templates & Dummy Wear
Shop full of pretty cute stuff for guys and girls. Don’t believe the prices on the vendors. Every outfit is 10L!

G&T Creations
Group gift belt for females and 1L gift behind counter, also soccer gift on counter
Found the shoes here – guy’s and girl’s flip flops, join group

Jaimie Earst Fashion
Bunch MM’s tons o’luckies, cute clothes

CARELESS GESTURES
Free gestures in group notices – here to join. Can also put in picks and get other gesture prizes. Land info sign says that if you put it in picks you’ll get 20L/day but I saw no evidence of this.

LionSkins by Leezu Baxter
Free skin here on the counter. It say group members only but I’m only in the subo and got it!

>KAGUYAHIME< Main Shop
LB’s contain cute little dresses and a yellow and blue track jacket

YunA’s Hair
Three sweet boards tho the hair is apparently different from what’s on the outside! Only a 5 minute wait! There is also a shooting star hair prize in here but you have to walk toward the yellow light particles, then frantically copy and paste "/7 catch" (without the quotation marks) in local like 20 times and then finally you might get it!

This find I located on http://fashionfeedofsl.com/ where Silver Milneaux, a simply lovely avatar had posted it. Oddly I couldn’t get to the place from the slurl tho, seems YunA has moved or something…anyway, Silver was so kind as to tp me to the place and I got two L’s on the boards also immediately! Yay!
All the other hairs range in price from 50-80L!
Ed Note: I put these lovely hairs on and discovered that they didn’t fit and that I couldn’t resize them to fit. Wondering what was going on, I contacted the maker who told me that essentially there was nothing she could do about it. English was not their first language so I felt it was a communication problem. Yes, it was. Mine! I found there was a notecard with one of the hairs I bought that said the best head size was 30! My av’s is big, well over 7 feet (2.28 meters) most of the time and my headsize was 63! Poor thing was shocked and I was disappointed. Final solution? I made a brand new avatar shape and especially changed the head to size 30. The hair fits beautifully and now I’m so glad I got it. In fact I may even have to go back and buy more! Lol!
Morals: perhaps think about reading product notecards even when it seems a waste of time and maybe it was time for a new look! My av is now 5’11” (1.77 meters). Well for the time being!
So I sent an apology notecard to the designer along with some of my paintings!

Oyakin
Free group gifts and dollarbie here – leggings, socks and stuff! Check this cute shop!

Library – check it out dude!
Yes this is the system folder below your other main folder “Inventory”. Just in case you haven’t looked at the new SL sign up page, you’ll find the contents for all the new avatars (well since May or so I think, maybe earlier) in your library. There is some designer stuff here: check out the creator’s name by right clicking and clicking properties (on the item in inventory) (useful function for finding out more about your stuff especially when you didn’t keep a landmark) and you’ll see well-known names like hair designer Truth Hawkes. Some of the items in the Library section don’t work like usual ones. Like they may not go on when you double click to wear and may not even show as being worn sometimes. However they are copy and mod and no need to transfer cuz everyone has them! This kind of pre-fab stuff quickly acquires a stigma much like Ruth has (in fact did you know that there is an SL religion called The Eternal Cult of Ruth!?!??!) and people don’t bother looking in there. I have discovered quite a few really nice pairs of boots among other things, including this black super-domme super pointy stiletto boot that I just can’t get enough of! These are the Female Student boots (5 pieces).

To get to this part of your library, click on the Library folder, then Clothing, Initial Outfits and there you’ll find all 12 (6 female and 6 male) of the brand new avatars complete! Unfortunately as these folders stand, you can’t right click and wear. However you can use the “Make Outfit” function found in all viewers under appearance! Also when you wear the item, another copy is automatically put into your regular inventory. It’s a bit weird and confusing.

RezIpsa Loc
Dollarbies here – tank for girls, jeans for girls and T for both

Shoe Fly Shoes
Group gift of grey leather sandals here. Also this shop always gives out free gift cards, usually worth at least 150L. You can use one per pair of shoes and get a great discount!

Equilibrium Design
Guy and girl gifts here as well as some cool clothes in MM’s

Crystal Gadgets

My Friend Coral


Coral was over visiting last night. She's one of the first people I met on SL - we met at New Citizens Inc (free SL university). We've had fun ever since! BTW, Coral has a group dedicated to saving the world's coral reefs. Please IM me if you would like to join! (Note she's wearing the shell earrings I made and send to the group recently - let me know if you didn't get them or you can find them free at Lotusland in the Sky. Look for the gold seashell. Also I made the fractal background.)

New ID

Some Cool SL stuff June 2, 2010

A hunting I have been and just doesn’t seem to be anything that great out there that’s free!
Here a few little things I managed to dig out tho!

FIERCE DESIGN
Scads of MM’s and LB’s with some pretty good stuff in them including some wild new biker boots. These didn’t lock today as far I could tell so everyone needs to get on down!

+HONEY+eot Devil

Downstairs there are some things that are 50% off meaning mostly 50L-75L and other reasonably priced clothes.

Nice free unisex Rough Hewn T in the vendor above your head – the one on the far right.

New golden and silver skins – no never mind! Lol! (They are 1000L ea!)
But there are some golden eyes here for only 5L!

*~*Illusions*~* Masks and Unique Accessories
At last the lovely Aurelie colour change pendant I got at Jewelry Fair 2009 (free) is for sale for 90L only! It’s gorgeous and worth it as you can change both the stone colour and the metal. I wear it often!
Interesting wooden box containing itself, masks and jewellery on the table here.
There’s also a lucky board with a flower in a vase!

Hope this helps!
