A Bit of This, A Bit of That

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

I’m toeing the line today between that which is sweet and that which is dark.  I’m all of a flutter in my new lingerie which makes me feel sweet and girly, but then I just had to get my cigarette out and mar the whole effect, now didn’t I?  I’m not really a proponent of smoking, but sometimes just holding a cigarette gives you a certain air of dark mystery.  I’ll just say that I’m holding it for someone else, yes?  Right.  That’s what we’re going with!

Ebento Strikes Again!

This anniversary round of Ebento is absolutely HUGE.  I wandered over there for a little shop, and much to my delight I found enough gifts to drown in!  (I don’t know, drowning in gifts sounds a bit fun, kinda…sorta?) Anyway, I joined the Ebento group for free and clicked on all the cakes and walked off with more goodies than you can shake a stick at.   Here’s what I’m showing you today!

  • FREE Cigarette Pose by Kokoro Poses (Comes with a Mirror pose as well)
  • FREE Lingerie by La Perla (Comes with Appliers for Omega, Belleza and Maitreya and three different colour options)

There are loads of other pretty things you can sink your sweet yet dark and mysterious claws into over at Ebento, so visit soon!  This event is running until May 31st!

Kisses!

Memories of France

Memories of France

I lived in France for a while when I was a teenager.  I really didn’t appreciate it at all at first.  My parents took a year off work and we headed over there.  In my mind, they had taken me away from all my friends and whatever other charms the 90’s held – I assume flannel shirts, Weezer and Jolt Cola.  But as the year we spent there went on, I came to realise that Southern France was quite a charming place (understatement of the century).  I spent a bit of time on the “La Clef des Champs” sim today, pretending I was in Provence.  All that’s missing is the lavender scent!

Toujours Provence

Perhaps my look doesn’t have much to do with the dry heat and fields of Provence, but I do like a bit of incongruousness.   I found a whole bunch of gorgeous gifts at the EBento event this month!  Join the group for free, and you can pick up several fun things.  Here’s what I’m wearing:

  • Beauty Marks by Session (For Lelutka and Catwa Heads) (Free @ Ebento)
  • SlackGirl Bento Nails (Belleza, Slink, Eve, Altamura, Maitreya, Tonic, Tuty and Vista) (Free @ Ebento)
  • Arte Eyeshadow (Lelutka, Catwa and System Heads) (Free @ Ebento)
  • Pose by PoSEsioN (5 in the box!) (Free @ Ebento)

Run on over and see what other gorgeousness you can find at EBento!

The Next Chapter

I also have another gift from The Chapter Four to show you – this top by Have Unequal comes in both black and white and works on Maitreya bodies.  Don’t you love the little clasps on it?  I like a good detail on my clothing!  If you haven’t been to The Chapter Four, do hurry up and nip over – it’s their 5th anniversary.  Join the group for 10 Lindens and get a whole lotta gifts!

I hope you find a bit of heaven in SL today!

Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂
