Hiya everyone! Tonight I'd like to show you some special gifts from Palomma Plaza, which can be all yours with their free group tag. There are always lots of generous gifts there, but these are noteworthy because they are tucked under a gorgeous Christmas tree :) They are mostly themed for the holiday season, and I'm guessing they will be available until at least the 25th of the month. With so many boxes around the entirety of the tree, I found myself clicking each, making sure the present arrived, then derendering each to keep track. There are dozens, thanks to the many generous designers who are here honoring Palomma's memory and particularly her love of Christmas, helping her spirit live on and bringing joy to others as she always did.
How amazing is this [Glitzz] Lake Dress - Ciano gift? The elegant yet flirty gown and matching long gloves are provided in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, and Reborn mesh bodies, with a HUD that offers 3 metals. The neckline is where you'll find that metal, thanks to tiny rings holding the halter strap in place, and a few more straps that dangle down the front of the neck with teardrop shaped charms attached. The skirt has such dramatic slits that it is basically a front and back panel, and the back is even more bared than the front plunge :) The color makes me think of ice atop a lake (the name of the dress probably influenced that) or the sky just above one, and the satiny texture is delightful.
Next we have the lovely .:FlowerDreams:. Lenna - black gift, a zebra print gown with lots of great details! The top and pants are provided as BOM (system) layers and appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, then we add the skirt panel in whichever of the 5 standard mesh sizes fits us best. There is also a chest deco plus chest fur left and right to create that black fuzzy top, then the skirt is comprised of several fluttery pieces - skirt train, underskirt left, and underskirt right. If you are unfamiliar with flexi pieces like this, please just try them each on one at a time and see if you like the look with all or just some of the components. Flexi is fun because it moves when you do, much more flowing than mesh, so it makes walking or dancing look like a party all in itself ;)
Our gift from ::BE BOLD:: is their intriguing Venera outfit, a sexy dress and strappy high heeled sandals all in dramatic black. The dress fits Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, and Reborn bodies, with sizes for Legacy, Maitreya, and Reborn for the footwear. I don't remember ever seeing this specific style before, SL or RL, so it certainly caught my eye!
If you crave something colorful and versatile, be sure to pick up our ANA OUTFIT by BA Store gift from Black Angel. They've tucked a top, skirt, and heels inside that will all fit Gen X Classic, Gen X Curvy, Kupra, Kupra Ups, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, and Reborn mesh bodies. We also receive a HUD with 30 great color options each for the top 1, top 2, top border, skirt, heels, sole, and outer sole areas. This way we can mix and match to our heart's content :)
My final look of the evening makes me want to run around in circles screaming "you guys, you guys, LOOK it's here!!! A free LARA X gift!!!!" :) Our [ARTi'S] Donna Dress - Palomma XMAS Gift comes in a bevy of sizes, with the newest mesh body being a part of it and the first time I've shared anything here that can fit it, so yep I am excited. Those sizes include Erika, Freya, Gen X Classic, Gen X Curvy, Kupra, Lara X, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Peach, Prima Busy, Prima Petite, Rebirth Petite, Reborn, Reborn Mounds, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The dress itself has a fun double spaghetti strap with the left side sliding down off the shoulder, and the fabric is adorned with golden reindeer, snowflakes, and trees for that seasonal flavor. I've seen mentioned that there are Lara X sizes among the Shop & Hop gifts, so I need to get there next ;)
The weekend was pretty rainy here, so I didn't go out at all and I am a little bummed by that. I've been watching the housemate play a relatively new game, Paleo Pines, which is relaxing to watch because it involves cute dinosaurs. I am pretty much always of the opinion that the world needs more cuteness, and this reminds me of Animal Crossing but I'm pretty sure they aren't connected. You basically move to an old ranch with your dino companion, meet some of the villagers, and start cleaning up your new home then bringing other dinos to live there. You plant crops to feed them, pet them and play a flute to communicate with them, and explore the valley while riding a dino. It is very sweet :) I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are having a peachy day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
