Garage Fair and Newness

This week has me beat, I'm not gonna lie... buuuuut here's a look of the day! (and some event links that go along with what I've found.)

LOTD May 16

Blueberry has an adorable-yet-sexy belted dress in various colours available as a Group Gift. They also have a whole shelf full of previous group gifts. If you haven't been there for a while, go check it out!

The Garage Designer Fair is on right now too, so if you're looking for something new and like the style of garage bands, grunge or pop-like-punk - you probably want to check this out. And you know what? Even if you don't - you probably want to check it out. Lots of stores have gift boxes and each corner of the sim has a section that has "20L or less" discounts from the participating stores.

Truth Hair has opened up again after their sale! The entire store is redone, there are lots of great new styles and there are new colour packs! Be sure to try a colour demo before you consider a purchase, but the styles are as cute as ever!

Adorkable Poses is closing!

Adorkable Poses Closing Sale

Here's the word from Adorkable Peapod:

It’s been a long time coming… it’s time to close Adorkable Poses. I have had an amazing four years of making poses and getting to know some wonderful people. My real life has just gotten so busy that I am not able to keep up with my store as I would like. Thank you all for your love, support and friendship. I never dreamt that what started out as a fun little hobby for a stay at home Mom could turn into something that actually helped my family financially. I couldn’t have done it without my amazing customers and I appreciate it so much. Thank you to the bloggers that have also been so kind to blog my poses. You all are such an asset to store owners and I know I wouldn’t have made it this far without you. A special thank you to my friend and biggest supporter, Sasy Scarborough. Without you, I would never have even had a store to begin with. I will forever treasure our friendship and every bit of business and personal advice that you ever gave me.
Everything in my mainstore is 50% or more off, now through June 9th. I will do my best to get everything up on Marketplace. If you have any unused store credit, now is the time to use it as it will be gone after June 9th. You can check your rewards balance at the front of the store. Single poses are on the first floor and couples and props are on the second floor.
I do hope that I can periodically create something for fun or for an event here and there but I guess we’ll see what the future holds. I still have commitments to a few more events that I will be keeping. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for everything! I’m off to have a good cry as I feel like I’m losing a limb or something!

So sad to see this creative shop close down its inworld presence. Adorkable Poses fill a unique niche of fun, flirty, cutely awkward; i.e. quite true to life. They're fun to "try on" even if you aren't necessarily shopping for poses - and trying them out almost always means you're about to buy one or two after you see just how cool they are. The ability to try them out will soon be lost, so get over to the shop before June 9. Half-off prices raise the incentive to try out a few extra!

Best wishes to you, Adorkable, and may success continue to follow you in all your endeavors!

Holy Moly!

I admit, I'm not caffeinated enough today to think up some quirky and fun accompanying text, but this stuff speaks for itself - and holy moly there is a lot going on in SL lately - not the least of which is the plethora of awesome gifts and sales right now!

.:cheeky:. just put out a new release that matches perfectly with their group gift! The Ela tank! comes in lots of great shades and the Tutu Skirt! looks gorgeous with all of them!

::Modish:: has some gorgeous group gift skins right now in a lighter and darker shade - I feel like a supermodel in them and the very famous >Truth< Hair has an amazing sale right now on their hair - most are on for 75L$ and some for even cheaper! The sim is generally full, but trust me, its worth clicking "Teleport" over and over again to see this sale!

May 9, 2013

Felicity has released a gorgeous new style of their trademark stilettos - Nadine is classy with a bite! Their spiked chunky heels are menu driven with metal change and hide options for the little pointy bits. I'm showing Black (which are an affordable and "worth it" 355L$), but the "Blue Suede" color is currently a group gift!

aaand last, but not least, in my awesome finds today is a pose pack from Nani Poses! I popped on by there today to see what I could find and I was shocked to find their posepack 2 was only 50L$ - that's pretty freakin' amazing considering there are 10 poses in this pack! I'm sure you'll all be seeing them here for a while, but I'm also sure you won't mind - they're lovely poses that will work well for bloggers. :)

*wipes the sweat from her brow* Now my fingers are tired. Go shop!

Photospot: Alenquer Gateway

Photospot on SL Unearthed is a semi-regular feature that highlights a Second Life spot that is a cool place at which to take portrait photos inworld. Not an entire sim, not even a complete parcel, but just a single specific location - a spot - with portrait opportunity.

Sometimes, you just need a castle! Bring out your knights and ladys-in-waiting, or don your tinkers, tailors or thieves. Today's Photospot is taking you to Alenquer Manor, a land with its own castle, its own market, its own chapel, its own tranquility, its own time.

SLU Photospot: Alenquer Gateway

While there is much to see in this mainland kingdom, our Spot is right here, on a curve of the cobblestone gatehouse pathway.  Whether you face yourself as entering the courtyard or exiting, or even just tarrying, there are plentiful nearby props and relevant backgrounds to provide excellent portrait support. (But you'll have to bring your own unicorn.) ;)

SLU Photospot: in the gateway

Shadows, yes. Windlight, yes. Depth, yes. You can use all your visual tools here. The stonework is highly accommodating. The sharp edges and the large chains make interesting shadowing.

Getting medieval

If you are lucky enough, you might encounter King Tristan, the ruler of Alenquer. His Majesty welcomed me to the kingdom and encouraged me to visit often, explore the castle and grounds, emphasizing that it is open to one and all, inviting many visitors. With such an excellent royal welcome, let's not disappoint him. *smile*

Style card: dragonslayer outfit by Mystic Hope, unicorn by Dragonsfyre

Flickr members: you're invited to join the SL Unearthed Photospot group and add your pictures taken at Photospot locations to the group pool.
Take note that very little in SL stays the same for very long. After even a short while, Photospot locations may be gone or changed in a significant way that renders their SLurls ineffective as originally intended, so be sure to grab these opportunities as they come!

Evale - an Ikon!

Have you ever opened your SL closet and, although its huge, you find you need something new? That happened to me the other day. To top it off I was feeling rather lazy, so I took to the marketplace to help me find a new outfit and within a few clicks, I'd found my new favorite. So much so that I've been wearing it for two days in a completely uncharacteristic move on my part!

The added bonus? Its only 49L$!

May 3, 2013

Evale has boxed up this entire outfit - top, mesh sweater, mesh skinny jeans and boots! I was shocked to find such a good deal, but so very pleased to find that it all fit fantastically. On my second day of wearing, I was also delighted to remember that the Ikon group gift is out right now! I hopped on over to pick it up and the "Denim" eyes are GORGEOUS!

May 3, 2013

My location today? I'm in front of a mesh, 2-prim book case in my new living room  When I say bookcase, I mean the case and everything on it.  You can get the entire set (and much more) at LAQ in-world store, or on their marketplace. It is seriously worth it. The most realistic items while remaining low prim - I'm still amazed at the quality.

The Look:

Outfit: Evale Look 06 - PROMO - 49L$
Hair: >TRUTH< Mindy - blood
Eyes: IKON Vanity Eyes - Denim (ML)
Mesh Face: Snow Rabbit - S@R Hybrid Avatar_Nea_Natural White
Bookcase: LAQ Decor - 6 color pack - three types of book cases!
