Venturing into the Sn@tch Bargain Pit.

Today, we ventured into the long-lost bargain bit of S@tch City, a wonderful place, with a magical store called Sn@tch. It is a store that we’ve wrote about in our little Goth/Industrial culture in Second Life article, we did last year around this time. Anyway we are revisit store because like it updates its mech once in a while and while the store has all these amazing clothes and accessories, who could give up a bargain?

There are many more freebies down in the Bargain Pit of Sn@tch, here are a few we liked. These are the freebies, we loves at Sn@tch.

Snowpaws

Snowpaws is an amazing store for new residents, from a price range of free – 280L$. They are very newcomer friendly with 24 Lucky letter boards, 6 Midnight Mania board and 4 Slap & Dash board. The store is modern looking and very open, the decor is minimal and with a beautiful atmosphere to shop. Snowpaws is also involved in many hunts in Second Life.

There aren’t any Mens clothes sadly, but you quickly forget about that when you their music of Pop and R&B distracts you for a second or you see your letter on one of the many prize boards.

Newcomer friendly:  8 out of 10

Music: 8 out of 10

Overall Experience: I got to give this place a big fat 9 out of 10 as this place is super

Raid the Marketplace: The Bridal Outfits

While doing research for the Grumble Wedding, I stumbled upon another marketplace store that would be awesome for those who are looking for a wedding or brides maid dress.

CMORE Bridal White - 199L$

CMORE Amelia Pink  - 100L$

The CMORE store is just as awesome and affordable take a look!

Here Comes the Bride: An SL Wedding

A few weeks ago I introduced the Weddings of Second Life, now its time to show what a Second Life Wedding looks like and how to get one. Of course you need to be engaged to be married first of all and you can’t do that without being an Second Life Relationship. If you haven’t realized yet time in Second Life moves fast and as soon as you first that special someone you share a connection with. It isn’t long before you are asking her/him for their hand in marriage. Here is the Second Life Wedding/ Partnering of June Carlson and Smorkola Resident very much in love allowed us to document their Second Life Wedding. This is the Second Life Wedding that has been done on a Budget, using only clothes from the store Grumble Grumble and their wedding venue Eversong. We used the gift cards that are already available through the in store Mini & Midnight Mania boards which are available to Grumble’s ever-growing shoppers.

Grumble Chapel 750L$

 

As Bride and Groom stand at the aisle exchanging their vows to each other you can see that the traditional ceremony in Second Life isn’t much different from a real life one. Bride Maids, Maid of Honor  with the best man and grooms men with families on each side.

Usually the Bridal parties’ outfits would cost a bit more than 1000 dollars each:

Satin Cascade Cocktail Dress (Pink) : 125L$

Cascade Gown ( White) : 150L$

Taking to the dance floor the Groom men’s change their outfits for a more less formal vest suit:

Men’s vest ( different colours) : 85L$

Men’s dress shoes : 60L$

Complete suit (from original photograph) 300L$

The most expensive thing in the whole wedding is meant to be the wedding dress. Not in this one. It looks awesome and happens to be the second most expensive thing in this wedding.

Victorian Gown White including Veil, Pearl Necklace and open toe Stiletto: 425L$

We will like to introduce to you, Mr and Mrs Carlson. The total tally for their wedding would be (without the Grumble gift cards) 2455L$.

Your Second Life wedding can cost as much or as little as you want. It all depends on how much money you have to spend.

(Big thanks to Grumble to letting is do our Grumble Wedding!) 

Raid the Marketplace – Outfits for Ass Kickin’.

A few days ago the Destination guys did an article on a zombie survival sim and it got us fashion folk thinking, there must be some affordable clothes in Second Life that would be perfect for a bit of butt kicking action so here we have another Raid the Marketplace. Two outfits for different types of people who love their ass kicking. (Note: the guns in the following pictures are 500L$ each and can be found in the gun shop at on the Dead Zone zombie survival Sim.)

For the Femme Fatale we have the latex wear:

Wanted Black with Boots – From a Marketplace store where everything is 7L$

For the  more comfortable Bad Girl selection which is made up of ( from head to toe):

*B.D.R.* Halter Top Pack - 1 L$

-K12-Gift Vol001 Hoodie – 1L$

VA Creations – Straight Jeans - 0L$

CC Design – Basic Sneakers Black - 10L$

 

Well that’s two outfits for ass kicking.

I DO Love Finding Random Hunt Gifts

Since Steam has been doing these hunt item introductions I thought I’d give it a go. Up late at night, after drinking A LOT of coffee and with nothing to do, I decided to go walking around a few of my very favourite Second Life Stores. Although I don’t have any Lindens to spend, ( I know right? Shocker!). I find it a little bit therapeutic to do some virtual window shopping. The idea of doing a hunt didn’t come to me until I spotted the …. sexist looking hunt gift ever.
