FLEUR (formerly Tete a Pied) gives out as a “Thank You Joining the Update Group” a gift card worth 500 Linden to buy one of the absolutely amazing skins. But hurry, it lasts only for 1 week! What`s to do:
Do a search in groups for the group called Fleur. (When I do a group search I use the phrase fleur and it is the 2nd choice). Join this group. It is free to join. Go to the Notices. Sort the Notices by date. Go to the one dated 02/16/2008 with the subject Thank you ….. Click Open Attachment. You´ve got an important landmark! And it couldn´t harm to read the notice!
Now make sure your FLEUR group tag is activated and tp over to the landmark. There`s a gift vendor at your landingpoint outside the store. You have to stand in front of this vendor, click it and you will get a 500 Linden gift card. Wear it! Step into the store, look around and buy the skin (choose “card”) you like most. Enjoy this generous gift!
You have to be patient because there´s a lot of lag. The skin I´ve bought and I`m wearing in the picture is TaP Vivant Cream Lustrous 1.
Let´s come to the outfits – I picked up 2 tips from the hotline (thanks to LadyDawn Starbrook and Cyn Vandeverre!) and tped over to La Bicyclette at Port Caledon. There I found free court bow and curtsy gestures and a free bustle bow but no dresses or shoes. For all this I went to La Bicyclette at Caledon Eyre and now I was able to buy the lovely embroidered shoes for 1 Linden (at the entrance in a box) and the victorian bicycling outfits (inside the store under the window). In the picture I´m wearing the green and yellow Spring Outfit.
The Commons, Victorian and Steampunk Shopping, is located a few steps away from La Bicyclette. Outside the big building (a wide place with cobblestones and a fountain) there is a table with freebies. I have decided to take the Regency Picnic Dress which is for free. And I will love this dress forever, seriously! I would have never thought that, because it is not my style at all! EDIT: Regency Picnic Dress is made by Jacquelin Seisenbacher, owner of Kleineschwein Designs, about a block east of the telehub in Caledon Eyre.
At least I ended up at Vandeverre`s Emporium. The sign didn´t let me buy the Valentine shirts (maybe they are gone, I´m late) but I found a Grey Silk Day Dress with an amazing silk texture. It´s a Victorian Outfit based on an extant silk tunic from 1100. Take the time to read the notecard. Also, there´s a free Black&Gold Uniform Set (not shown).
