Grateful for Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! Today I visited a few stores for more group gifts, and the good news is that only 2 free-to-join groups are involved :) The first is a store group, for No Cabide, and the second is the Maitreya Groups, Sales, and News (MGSN) group which involves many designers who cater to the Maitreya body wearing crowd. I joined that one as soon as I got my Maitreya body, and have gotten really helpful information from it as well as a variety of free gifts. No Cabide is one of their participating designers, and their gift helped inspire me to check for other MGSN group goodies.

This first outfit is a terrific sweater and skirt combo (single mesh piece) named Yuri, and there is a great HUD with 10 choices for the top (solid colors with various images on each) and 10 for the skirt portion (solids and prints) that coordinate very nicely. The outfit comes in sizes for Maitreya, eBODY, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, and Physique. I feel like there is a good chance that these sizes would work out fine for a classic avatar if you have an alpha layer in your inventory from a similar shirt and skirt. This is a free group gift for the store's group.

My next look is another No Cabide group gift, the alluring Hera Classic Dress which comes with a generous HUD for 25 texture choices, both solids and prints can be found among the assortment. The dress itself is included in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink sizes so another gift that is catered to mesh bodies but with some creative use of alpha layers it can be worn by classic bodies too. I love the gathered look of the fabric and how the textures include the shading for each little fold.

The gift from No Cabide for the MGSN group is this very sexy Afrodite Mini Dress, and it includes applier HUDs for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink along with the skirt prim in standard mesh sizes. I would like to point out that the top is very sheer and depending on your skin tone, you could experience some nipple show-through. Mine is minimal and I decided it wasn't even enough to need to block anything out via Photoshop, but on the vendor photo included in the gift they were more noticeable for that model. This is not necessarily a bad thing, just depends on the sim you visit while wearing this beauty.

This gift was actually mentioned in MGSN group chat while I was in the process of gathering gifts to blog, which was quite handy as it frequently is. This is the ShuShu ROCK IT Outfit which has been prepared especially for Maitreya bodies only, as it includes a single sweater size and Maitreya appliers called lingerie (midsection) and string (a red floral bikini panty) along with the Maitreya size of the Belt Skirt Blue and Belt Skirt Red. Even the comfy flat boots are included for Maitreya feet. The included beanie can be seen on the right, obviously not a good match with my current hair style ;) 

One last look of the night, keep that MGSN group tag on and head over to *MY STYLE* for their group gift named Bell Dress. This charming tank style dress comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. That side slit, the gathered pucker, the stripes along the front all add up to a delightfully detailed look.

What a busy day it has been, I admit to being pretty tired this evening and will probably be even more so tomorrow night. I just drained myself of what remaining energy I had by laughing at something silly I just did...I tend to watch/listen to Music Choice channels on my tv while blogging, and I meant to type 1827 for the 80s channel but somehow hit 1824 which it turns out is Toddler Tunes. Unexpected kiddie songs can be worth many giggles :) Hope you're all enjoying your weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
