So I was standing there with my Pal Archie.. all set to greet people and I realize.. that the Arcade doesn’t actually open for a few more days.. so what did I do? I went shopping!
I picked up some Sakura Hair from Truth. A whole bunch of adorable wearable bears from BoOgERs, some snazzy sunglasses from Katat0nik, A little piggy that went to the market from Schadenfreude, and a skateboard from What Next! All of this you can get at the Arcade that opens in just a few days! See you there!
When I first saw the Imaginarium Librarium set from Sienia Trevellion of Lark for the September round of the Arcade Gacha festival I squealed with happiness.
I was so thrilled to see these books – these little pieces of amazing art that she had made. Like what books are about, what art is about – she gets it. Books take you places, words jump off the page and paint a tapestry in your mind. This is what the Imaginarium Librarium represents to me, imagination jumping off the page.
I tried to take a photo of everything, but my photos do not compare to seeing this set in person, it’s truly a work of art.
The prim count for everything shown is as follows:
Mariner: 2 LI
Libraries: 11 (includes a 1 LI foot ladder)
You can get yours at the Arcade Gacha Festival opening September the 1st.. may the odds be ever in your favor!
Much to my delight, Candy from Glam Affair for the Arcade Gacha fest that is only a week away came into my life this afternoon! There are 14 skins to try for in total. 10 America skin tone and 4 Europa skin tone and I’m not certain which ones are the rare but they all have a unique beauty and I just adore the lips on these. There are four different brow options and even a cute little freckle layer!
You can try for Candy next Sunday when the Arcade Gacha opens its doors, and boy do I ever look forward to it!
The hair that I am wearing is from Liquience Hair who has just released three brand new styles, they are super cute and you should check them out!
I might have went a little bit crazy at the Arcade Gacha’s June round.. but its like the happiest time of the year in SL when it comes around again to me. I get to make these crazy wishlists for cute and amazing things that make me smile and better yet I get to help people find their cute and amazing things that make them smile.
I love the Arcade Gacha Chat group because I can go in there and say I have two rare something or others and want to trade for other rare something or others and you might have to ask a few times but its one of those times in SL where the spirit of community hits me.. that wow this is really a good place to be sometimes! But I never thought that trading would be half as fun as it is but I love it.
Of course there are the yard sales which can be fun if people keep their items to a normal machine machine price and don’t try to get all crazy high with the rares. Be careful before you buy at them! The one at Pixel Fusion is the best and most organized yard sale in my opinion.
Almost everything in my post is from the Arcade Gacha Event, let me try to list it: My unicorn horns are from Half Deer. My hair is from Wasabi Pills, Lulu Skin from Glam Affair. My eyes are from Dead apples, leg warmers are from Auxiliary. The tent and typewriters are from Floorplan, the robots are from Zigana, the Piglets are from OhMai. The Games are from Second Spaces, the coconut sign is from Flowey, the radio is from Standby, the plushie is from Intrigue Co. The headphones are from Fashionably Dead.. and phew! I think I got everything there.
You can get it all by trying your luck at the Arcade Gacha until the end of this month!
Hey! You! Yeah you! Guess what? Pose Fair 2013 is now open! You might wanna get your butts over there now before everyone gets home from work and pick up some cute poses like this one from !Bang who is in one of the larger stores near the landing point.
This pose is so cute and I was inspired today while walking around BlackLace and seeing these cute little bunny outfits for only 99L each for Easter. The hair I got was free from the Holiday Gift that I picked up today at Celoe. The skin is from Glam Affair.. it was the rare Arcade Gacha skin from December called “First Date” and the stuff in the background is from Tee*fy and its still at the Arcade for another day or so.
Pose Fair first though: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Solace%20Island/132/133/26
I had the pleasure of checking out a brand new home from .Happy Homes. The Kendal Cottage is a very cute home for a blossoming family, there are three bedrooms, a bathroom, dining room, kitchen, a secret room, closet space, all windows open and close, the ceiling fans work and the lights work as well. The house is also copy/mod.
It’s very adorable, the floor plan is interesting and the textures are very well thought out. The build is only 161 prims and does contain mesh. If you would like to see the home in world, there is a brand new in world location here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Perfect%20Isle/167/45/2000
My furniture comes from Mudhoney (that living room set is now at Fameshed), What Next, the Loft, Scarlet Apple (the bedroom set is from the Arcade) and Trompe Loeli.
So I wanted an excuse to show off these adorable poses from !Bang. These “Derby girl” poses are new at !bang so damn cute and they go perfectly with this gacha stuff I scored. These poses are super fun!
The candy skates from The Secret Store at the Arcade Gacha? I love these so hard! This little O.M.E.N outfit for 50L a play? Hell yeah! The wings are freaking adorable as is this bento lunch box from Katatonik for 50L a play. The Arcade is dying down a bit now as in its been a bit easy to teleport there now, you should totally check it out now!
Gacha, gacha, gacha at the Arcade has run rampant in second life this weekend and I’ve relieved feelings of going to carnivals from my childhood. The Arcade Gacha is quite an intoxicating experience.
No idea what it is but it’s a combination of the music, and the carpeting and the sound of seagulls that makes me throw caution to the wind and spend! spend! spend! Everything except for my jeans that are from Decoy in the photos above can be won form the machines.
I took some extras that I had from the Pilot Christmas Village and made them huge for this background in my photos, just a word though make sure you have a lot of prims available if you do this because it takes a lot of land impact to make them huge.
I wanted to enter the Gacha photo contest and you can find more info on that here: http://thearcadesl.com/contest. I had a lot of fun taking these photos.
My poses are from the Gacha machines from Adorkable and !bang. My sweater is from tulip, my boots/socks are from Boom, my hair is from Clawtooh, my satchel bag is from The Secret Store, my scarf is from Fatewear and my skin is from Glam Affair and all that is from the machines at the Arcade Gacha located on the Country Club Sim.
Yesterday I was talking to an old friend who has started up his furniture business back up in SL. It’s really worth a look because this couch that I’m featuring is only 8 prims and 199L and it’s so freaking cute. The tea couch from .lame furniture can be found in world or here on the market place. It’s a fun and brightly colored couch that goes well with the madness of my gacha items that I’m about to show you. The table showcasing the lovely vintage head form Nylon Outfitters can also be found at .lame.
I also want to mention that the skybox that I am using for this post can be found at this month’s Collabor88 from floorplan.
Most of the furniture used such as the futon, the chairs table and birds painting, couch and tables are from .lame furniture. Most stuff is mesh and low prim, and even the sculpt stuff is low prim. All the fun accessories and stuff are from the Arcade Gacha and I’ve tried to list all the ones that I’ve used in the tags but if you have a particular question about something feel free to IM me in world!
