Dia de los Muertos hunt at The Gentlemen Bastards

Spooky freebies are to be had at The Gentlemen Bastards up to and including November 5th. The Dia de los Muertos Hunt is running there until then, featuring skins from RP Box, builds from Domicile, and other creepy items. There are pumpkins scattered all over the place, across the two stores, but only some of them have prizes in them. If you get stuck, click the big pumpkin on the straw bales by the entrance for some hints. A new prize will be put out every day (and the old prizes will remain out, too) until the hunt is over.

Here’s the gift for day 1. It’s a fabulous Baron Samedi skin by RP Box. The outfit that Mar’s cobbled together for it is a mish-mash of all kinds of old things, so I’m afraid I can’t give you locations where to get the items. Sorry about that!

Hop behind the cut for pics of the goodies from days 2 and 3!

L$10 male skins at Pixeldolls – today only!

Here’s a quickie for the boys (oh, get your minds out of the gutter!) Pixeldolls has a very limited sale on this weekend only (so today – Sunday Oct 24th – is your only chance to get these) and included in that sale are male skins for just L$10. You’ll get five skins in each pack: the same tone but with five different body hair options. There are free demos under each pack for you to try out first (but for goodness’ sake no getting naked in the store, okay? It’s a PG sim! Take your shirt off, by all means, but no crown jewels!)

Here’s a snap of the skins wall:

And here’s your limo. You’ll probably land in the middle of the store, so head South to find the small sale area.

Autumn freebies!

Two lovely autumnal gifts have hit the grid over the past couple of days. SF Design‘s October freebie in-store is the snuggly Wrap Up Knitted Jacket in sienna. There’s one in both the ladies and menswear stores, so guys you can get your Starsky on, too ;)

The great thing about these designs is they come with both a script-resize belt and lower part and also manually-resizable versions. So, no matter what your level of experience when it comes to fiddling with and fitting prims, you’re good-to-go!

Hop behind the cut to find out about the second gift :)

New collection at The Dressing Room

It’s that time again! A new collection of designer cheapies has been released at The Dressing Room. Mainly items for the girls, but guys there’s a fabulous hairstyle from CheerNo for you, so hop over and check it out.

Mar’s showcasing the new Helena 04 skin (L$65)  from Tuli, the Ballone Dress Lilac (L$60) from R.icielli, and the Cala Saona shoes (L$60) from Your Skin & Your Shape. Note: the dress is a bit longer than this, but I preferred to wear it as a top with jeans, so I shortened it and moved the little tie section up.

Mar’s leather pants are L$10 from the Glam Affair/Beauty Avatar Couture discount room. Hop behind the cut for more pics!

Dressing Room and other stuff!

There’s a new collection of discounted designer items at The Dressing Room, and Mar’s got just a couple of the clothing items and all three available skins to show you.
