Happy Belated Birthday Seraphim - New Inworld Seraphim Hud

.
Seraphim just marked it's 5th Anniversary, yesterday, and with that, it is a dawn of a new era in Event Coverage. Seraphim has create an inworld hud, which brings the experience of the useful site that much closer to your finger tips.


.
So how will this little hud change your life? Well if you are into the event hopping, this is a good way to start. Seraphim does not cover everything that happens in sl, but it does cover a good number of it. You might learn about new events, or missed ones, with this hud, as it is much quicker to scroll a little list. I already found a few I forgot about, and I am on the Seraphim site often.

I am not going to go into every detail of this, there are all the informational pages linked above, it also comes with inworld instructions. There is even a video created to help you get on your way to using the hud, which you can find HERE and see Strawberry's Review and Video HERE.

What I will say is that I look forward to using some of the features of this hud. I am forever forgetting when events open, so having a super quick source for that, as a blogger, will be lovely. I like the idea of the favorites feature. The Auto Tper, while I do own one, will be handy, cause I always forget what the one I own is called. I will probably use it to check things I have missed, I miss a lot, as some weeks I have a lot going on with my own store.

.
Seraphim also had a big celebration, with all sorts of DJs and designers gifts. Some of the Designers are being generous, and have placed the gifts out at their mainstores. You can view the offerings HERE, keep in mind, I have no clue who is opting to put things out, so some things might not be available.

Epicene - A Week Left

 
Epicene is a relatively new event, that geared towards High Fashion/Couture/Runway Styles, which also caters to both Males and Females. Every designer has exclusive items, and you can sometimes find deals and gachas here as well.
The event has not been picked up on Seraphim yet, so we are going to help them get a bit of a following, and cover it on Free*Style.





This is the last round before the summer, there will be a bit of a break, and you should see the event pop back up in September.

Robot Study Hall

I'm proud to let me geek flag fly high, so of course I popped right over to Geektopia 1.0 as fast as I could. 


Almost every shop has a 0L-1L gift in a little green box. Many of these creators are new to me and have some amazingly geeky gifts. I also couldn't pass up the Geektopia exclusive eyes from Mesange at only 50L per color. 


 This SLB13 gift hair with headphones from Baiastice was perfect for my look and just when I thought there wouldn't be a June group gift from Stix, Pixy Snook set out this soft yellow version of Fauna with plenty of options and appliers to work with.

Lamp ~ Circa ~ "Game NerdZ" Merkaba Light Strand ~ 1L gift @ Geektopia 1.0
Wall Art ~ Follow Us ~ Geektopia - Special ~ 1L gift @ Geektopia 1.0
Bench ~ Lewd ~ TetriSleep (w/poses and color change) ~ 1L gift @ Geektopia 1.0
Homework ~ Atlanta Metro ~ Legal pad & messy papers ~ 0L gift @ Geektopia 1.0
Outfit ~ Day Dreamer ~ Magic (top and skirt are one piece mesh) ~ 1L @ Geektopia 1.0

Helena, Sileny and everyone at Free*Style, thank you for letting me be a part of this wonderful team. 

Pirateer


That designer lady has left me again. You think she would learn. You never leave your avi on, all by herself, afk for long periods of time.

The havoc one  lone avi can make.

At least I didn't dress in pink right? Maybe that will be for tomorrow.

For now, I just rotated all her work projects 25 degrees.


Jackpot Gacha is running until 11:59pm June 25th. All gachas are L$30 and each participant has a free gift out for you all to enjoy. What really makes this different from other events, is that you have a chance to win 1, 2, or 3 items per pull. So you basically just play the machines as usual, and you have a chance to win more than one item per play.

That isn't all though, there is also the chance to win the ULTIMATE jackpot, 100 free pulls on all gachas, from 26th to 26th of June.

Tutorial Thursdays - Blogger Part 1: Making your First Post

For today's Tutorial Thursday I am going to be a breakdown on how to quickly post your first post on a Blogger driven blog.

This tutorial will continue after the break, for the sake of the feeds that Free*Style is published on.

Storm's Rising


Sorta went more on the cute side of things today, I like it though.

The Eash Cart Sale is still going strong, and I am wearing a few more goodies from there today. I normally don't do summer in sl, but it has been really fun to style beach outfits this year. Not sure why it took me so long to enjoy that aspect of SL Fashion.

You can't see them well, but my nails are actually inspired by Crayons. La Boheme continues to have one of the most unique series of nails for Slink, Omega and some Maitreya. These you can pick up at the Wash Cart Sale as well.

Showtime


I really love how this outfit transformed from one this in my head, to something totally different in the pixels. You sometimes get inspired by things, so you have that one thing stuck in your head, but your creativity takes that seed of an idea, and launches it on a journey.

I am wearing this fab dress from Dark Water Designs, called Poppy Dreams. You can find it at The Wash Cart Sale for only L$10! It's what started the whole look, and I am happy with the outcome.

Fanciful

 Sitting on a Bubble

I have been in a fantasy kick as of late, not that I mind.

The Wash has another of their famous L$10 cart sales going on, with the whole sim chalk full of displays ripe for the grabbing. My Outfit, Bracelet and Nails can all be found there.


The Nail Hud for the polish I am wearing.


I'm really enjoying these eyes from Soul. Not free, but they worked with my exotic look of the day. If you enjoy something a bit different, they have released all sorts of amazing eyes this year, so it is worth it to check them out. There is also some group gift eyes currently in the store, and a few in a gacha too!

You can find my wings at a charity event being hosted by the Twisted Hunt organizers, called Summer of Love. They are in a gacha, only L$15 per play, with all the proceeds going to Relay for Life.
