I Gacha Good

I Gacha Good
Gachas.  You love them or you hate them.  Or you have a love hate relationship with them, that leans rather often towards the love, but then veers off in the hate direction rather abruptly so that you stomp off in frustration in your 6 inch heels while muttering to yourself about evil machines.  It’s not like I’m speaking from experience, I swear!

But My Fave!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Amitomo is a gacha that I never regret playing, and I rarely miss playing one of their new releases.  They consistently put out cute, well-constructed and wildly affordable gachas that never leave me with that gacha player’s remorse.  Their latest set is out at Kustom9 and is just 69L per pull.  You’ll totally walk away with something you can wear, as usual with their offerings.  I played 4 times and managed to get this shirt, the skirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) the cute bubble gum and even the little butterfly belt.  Not bad!  Also, often if I don’t win one of the items I really need in my life, I’ll nip into Marketplace and search for the gacha, and once you sift through the super overpriced ones, you can find some good deals.  It pays to look on MP!

This round of Kustom9 is running until August 10th!

Good Luck!

A Random Rant

A Random Rant

Have you ever had someone take you on a tour of their house?  It’s one of those events that can either be very illuminating – giving you an insight into the way people live, their taste and what gives them comfort, or it can be the most soporific event you can take part in.  I have been on far too many house tours, sometimes visiting the same house 3 times because I’m too polite to point out that I’ve visited before.  The point is that even the events that could be interesting are often turned into something tawdry and self-important.  I am therefore, not going to give you a tour of my house, but instead stop blathering and get straight into this cute outfit.

What Was that About?

I honestly don’t know why I was ranting about house tours – I may or may not have been given one recently that sent me into fits of yawns, and just had to get it out of my system.  Anyway, it’s time for a new Amitomo Gacha!  You all know how much I love the looks they put together in their affordable gachas.  This outfit can be found at Kustom9, and in my often scientifically followed method, I only pulled 3 times and got this top and skirt (the third was another pretty top – I didn’t get the rare this time!).  Being in charge of a budget-conscious blog often has me truly wondering about the price-effectiveness of a gacha, and I always come to the conclusion that Amitomo is worth it!  At 69L per pull, you’ll always end up with a full outfit in just a few tries.  This outfit comes sized for Maitreya bodies.   This round of Kustom9 is running until June 10th!

Good luck!

Wind Ready

Wind Ready

I would most likely be aging myself if I started ranting about the hot pink and purple wind breaker I had when I was young.  There was this whole thing about being protected against the wind that made its way into fashion the form of pants and jackets, and I just want to say that that was a *moment*.  Apparently, that moment is kind of making a comeback since I’m feeling pretty wind protected today!

My Fave!

Every month, I wait with bated breath for the latest Amitomo gacha release at Kustom9.  I’m never disappointed by the colourful offerings, and this month is no exception.  People often ask me if I’m paid to review them, or if I’m given these gachas, but I can solemnly swear that I am not.  I REALLY do love them and pay my own Lindens to get them.  I always play them with the bargain hunter mentality – as few plays as possible, and see what happens.  In just three pulls (I SWEAR!) I got the rare hair, this cool purple dress and the awesome jacket (sized for Maitreya) to go over all.  At just 69L per pull, you’ll inevitably walk away with something that you can make an outfit out of for very little dough.

Cool Girl Style

Cool Girl Style
There’s nothing quite as cool as a patterned, oversized blazer.  I think you kind of have to be a “patterned oversized blazer” type of person to make it work, and today I have become that person.  I feel powerful, cool, and even like I can take on whatever in this look.  Do you feel like you need an injection of cool-girl style?  I’ve got just the item for you!

Kustom Made

You guys know me and Amitomo.  If they’re making it, then I’m totally into it.  It’s my absolute fave thing to play their gachas, because they are always so pretty and well made, and whenever you play, it’s a given that you’ll end up with a full outfit.  I headed over to Kustom9, and played only once (I do it for FabFree science, I promise) and ended up with this sweet outfit!  At just 69L per pull, you really can’t say no to a full outfit (sized for Maitreya).  It also came with an HUD to change the shorts and top colour, so you’re really ending up with several looks in one.  If you’re feeling particularly lucky, try playing a few more times for the Rare hair.  I didn’t get it, but you just might!

Good luck, cool girls!

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

Cacophony

Cacophony

It was a quiet Sunday morning.  All was peaceful, and a thin mist was hanging in the sunny hollows.  The birds were just beginning to wake, and a calm lay over the land….when suddenly the roofers appeared across the way and started making a godawful racket.  Their hammers rained blows upon the roof they were perched upon, and horror of horrors: they woke me up.  How could they possibly destroy the peace and tranquility I had so clearly earned?  Travesty, I say!

Back to Kustom9

The only way to get out of the funk caused by the uncaring roofers was clearly to get into some shopping therapy.  The best way to do that is always to shop but not spend any Lindens (and also listen to loud music and eat a cake pop…)!  I headed back to Kustom9, where they’re still celebrating their anniversary, and picked up a few of the gifts I missed out on on my first whirlwind visit.  It’s much quieter now, so you’ll actually be able to walk through at a semi-leisurely pace.  As mentioned before, the gifts from Kustom9 are all free to members of the free-to-join Kustom9 group!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE top by Luas sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite and Legacy Perky.  Comes with an HUD to change to 8 different colours and five different images on the front!
  • FREE skirt by M.Birdie sized for Maitreya

Kustom9 is running until November 10th!

Sweet but Psycho

Sweet but Psycho

Oh hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. I’m not plotting anything sweetly sinister, I swear. I am however happy to share a few more of the Kustom 9 event gifts with you. My long-sleeved top and this doughnut clad knife are both free at Kustom 9. You will need to join the free-to-join Kustom 9 group and wear the group tag to claim your free gifts.

AsteriodBox

I love the look of this top by AsteroidBox. The thin stripes, slightly pointed sleeves, and leather straps give it a lot of style. There’s also a well done oval cut-out in the back of the shirt for some added detail. This top is free at Kustom 9, just wear the Kustom 9 group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink Hourglass/Petite, MeshBody Legacy/Perky, Belleza Freya

Zenith

This could-be threatening knife stacked with doughnuts and tied with a sweet bow is free at Kustom 9. It’s made by Zenith and has a hold pose that can be turned off or on by touch menu. It also has a hud with a few options to color the doughnuts, and the ribbon.

Does anyone else have a fascination with fingers moving in SL?  I guess I’m a bit old school now that I remember when our fingers and faces didn’t move at all.  In fact, our hands used to be as rigid as shovels!  Bento animations have made finger movements so much fun to watch that sometimes I get a bit mesmerized and end up staring for a while.  I have no idea if that makes me weird (I’m ok with it being weird…) but such is the way of things!  I am having a bit of magical fun with some freebies today!

Halloween Fun

I have a ridiculous amount of Halloween themed clothing in Second Life, but that never stops me from getting and wanting more!  I found this cute minidress over at MAAI.  The little ghosts are so adorbs that I couldn’t pass them up.  To get this cuteness, just join the group for FREE and click on the massive vendor on the wall.  Nothing could be easier!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Petite

You’re a Star

I mentioned the other day that Kustom9 was celebrating an anniversary and there were loads of free gifts.  I had to show you the fun star halo and hand animation from Moon Rabbit.  As I was saying, I could totally stare at this for hours… Anyway!  It’s slightly creepy and entirely free when you join the Kustom9 group for free.  You can access through the Main Sim or the Cam Sim.  It may have gotten a bit quieter now!

Right, back to staring at my hands!
