Dear Aisling, Love Alles

Dear Aisling

If people are wondering why I have made this post it is because of the large number of conversations that I have been having with fellow Second Lifers recently in which the subject of what almost seem to be “rigged” or exceedingly unfair gachas has come up. And the Number One name that kept popping up in this regard was Aisling and the gachas that they have had at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival in May and now at Tales of Fantasy in June 2014.

And just for the record, this is what I am wearing:

~Tableau Vivant~ Meersand Hair … made by M4ri1yn Magic. This is now available at the current round of Collabor88. NEW.
I should add in passing that the Collabor88 events offer very good value for money!!

Demitra line fade -Jet Black … made by Malia Actor. Purchased in March 2014.

Glam Affair – Magenta skin – Jamaica – FLF D … made by aida Ewing. I should add that this was an absolute bargain purchase as it was available as a Fifty Linden Friday item. Purchased on March 1st, 2014.

*ARGRACE* SHIORI.Pearl Earring Drop / L
*ARGRACE* SHIORI.Pearl Earring Drop / R

– Glam Affair – Shironuri lashes 1 – coal … made by M4ri1yn Magic. I bought them at The Seraphim Social in December 2013 but they are now available at the Glam Affair store in Beauty Avatar Couture.

~*By Snow*~ Citadel Eyes (Chrome – Red) … made by Snow Frostwych. These were part of a FatPack of eyes that I purchased at FutureWave in February 2014.

Madrid Solo- Male Designs- Bad To The Bone- Full Set … it’s the makeup across the top of my face (a bit like a painted mask) and the lip colour.

[:T:] Parted lips 3

Aussie Bikini top … made by Dondas Garrigus of Hoodoo Surf. Purchased in January 2009.

Peqe – Greek_S_Zeus (ULTRA RARE) … it’s the skirt. And yes, I lucked out with this gacha purchase as I got it on the fourth play – meaning an outlay of only 200 lindens.

The pose I have used is RACK Poses – Let Me Be Your Aphrodite 6 … which was made by Kirstly Oherlily. I purchased it in June 2014.

Has Gacha Got Out of Control?

Is Gacha Really Worth It?

Firstly and before anyone jumps on me, I would to point out that the Gacha in this picture does offer good value. I have just opened one of the bikini packages and discovered that there are five different sizes available and that each of those sizes are transfer. So if I can fit into a size M bikini and I have a friend who fits into a size XS bikini, then we both get something to wear for an initial outlay of only thirty lindens. Unfortunately the same kind of value doesn’t apply to a lot (if not all) of the gachas that are now in vogue at events like the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and the currently running, Tails of Fantasy.

As Light As A Cloud

As Light As A Cloud

Earlier today (and totally out of the blue, so to speak) I got a message inworld from fellow Flickr person, Lyrical (aka Karol Lyric), which asked if I wanted to be part of a photographic project that she was scheduling for a couple of weeks hence. This sounded like a great idea but while we were chatting I asked her if she would like to do some pictures with me right there and then as I was in a kinda creative mood.

Both of us have the WowMeh mesh body and the OverSize body to be more precise, so as I had some Implant poses from Lemon Artemesia to try out, we both kitted up in these rather ample bodies to give the poses a spin.

Lyrical – on the left – is wearing the following:

Necklace: .:EMO-tions.. * PEARL* necklace- back … made by Mirja Mills. The back necklace is part of the .:EMO-tions.. *PEARL* – natural pack, which can be purchased on the Second Life MarketPlace.

Alles – on the right – wearing the following:

Hair: TRUTH HAIR Sakura Hair + TRUTH HAIR Flowers + TRUTH HAIR Sushi … made by Truth Hawks. These are a RARE item at the June 2014 round of The Arcade Gacha. NEW.

Mesh Body: Body – OverSize (WowMeh) … made by Baby Ghosn.

Skin: -Glam Affair – Magenta skin – Jamaica – FLF D … made by aida Ewing. Purchased on March 1st, 2014 as a Fifty Linden Friday item.

Eyes: ~*By Snow*~ Citadel Eyes (Chrome – Red) … made by Snow Frostwych.

h.m.a.e.m. – Samosa necklace … made by riri Bazar.
