*review* LG ChAoS Design

Several days ago, Leeloo Graves passed me a folder of her latest release. I have to be honest I never heard of this designer prior to her sending me her items. Upon visiting her store, there seems to be an identity crisis for branding and I got over it quickly as I saw the other items in the store. It looks like she’s a slow releasing designer and offers really quite nice quality products.

It took me some time to blog this particular outfit since I don’t have many things to go with this theme. After a quick shopping trip at a few of those stores that I admire but rarely shop, I found the perfect elements. I just needed to set the scene for this post. a very popular sim comes to mind but I wanted something more unique. I found Alpha & Omega. This sim is amazing!

Loco Pocos

By Luna Jubilee  //  Clothing  //  1 Comment

Since last March I’ve owned a Loco Pocos avatar. My first one was from a hunt, I believe, and Express and I lived in them for sometime. There are dozens of different avatars to customize. Yup. Customize.

You can pick up a ton of great items for your avatar. Even other content creators are designing products for the brand. For me, I used hair I already had in my inventory, Truth’s Luna hair.

Most, if not all items, are HUD driven customization. In just a click or two clothing will change colors or textures. The customization doesn’t stop at clothing either; eyes, ears, tails, emotions/gestures, and even all the fun toys that are attached.

Express’ fav toy is the tank … he likes to shoot at me.

Loco Pocos

Its a real sense of community on the sim. Yes, it is a full community. The Loco Pocos sim is amazingly designed with several places to explore and fish. Just when you think you have seen it all a hunt will begin and it is a full immersion into this tiny avatar world.

The hunts are my favs not just for the fun treats or the well organized cohesive themes but the people. Seeing everyone’s own Loco Pocos is awesome. I had no idea there are so many folks in the community … and all so very friendly!!

Its incredible stuff … something you have to experience. There even is a free Loco Poco avatar to get you addicted started.

Starting today until March 8th is a massive 40% off sale. Some of the rare avatars will also be available during the sale. Hurry get to Loco Pocos today!

*review* Tiny Bird

Tiny Bird is all new again with brand new textures! If you haven’t seen this store in some time, check it out again. I’m sure you will be just as thrilled as I was to see the newness! I get a kick out of the naming of the fat packs — “Great Personality” — and even the packaging — the adorable nest and eggs symbolic of the hair packs. The eggs will break upon choosing the hair colors.

Ain’t that the Truth!

By Luna Jubilee  //  News  //  1 Comment

Today’s SLDD was much anticipated by Express and I (and those who hawk the flickr stream…shh its a secret tho). In the minutes leading up to the vendor’s start time, the crowd gathered and doing the pee dance.  The start time came and went and the crowd got, erm, mob-ish. Clicking the vendor repeatedly doesn’t help, btw.

Ain't that the Truth

Meanwhile, Express is re-checking the vendor’s scripts and we exchange IMs of “srsly. idk. wtf”. We find Truth … he comes online and the girls went weak in the knees. I kid you not. The marriage proposals flew and I think someone giggled. seriously. She giggled.

Then the comment was made “Someone should make a ‘I survived Truth’s SLDD’ “. Well, someone did. That someone is Lauren Bisiani of T Junction.  The tee is a freebie! Just like today’s event, it will be memorable.

A huge thanks goes to Truth for being such a great sport. The reason as to why the vendor didn’t work will be our secret. <3

If you haven’t gotten the hair today, get it now. you have until midnight slt to pick it up at the vendor’s location. It will be marked at the usual price after midnight. Check the SLDD site for the info. While there, it would really be worth the while to get on the SLDD mailing list. Seriously.

Products Used
hair: >TRUTH< Chalice – mahogany (Today’s SLDD)
skin: L.Fauna {Lapine . Tan 1} [Acres] OO
tee: T Junction – I Survived Truth’s SLDD

SL Daily Deals HQ to get on the mailing list too

PS – my blog has a mailing list. You’ll get an IM each time I do a post. How cool is that! Thanks to Express!!
