Luxe Box in Second Life – September ’16 Round

Hai! I hope you’re doing well this fine Tuesday (I’m not, I’m sick. Que sympathy!) Today I finally bring you another unboxing video of the Luxe Box September round!

Luxe Box - September '16

Although I haven’t had much time recently to make videos, I’ve been subscribing to Luxe Box every month since the release and I’m yet to be disappointed. I think it’s a wonderfully unique idea and brings an awesome surprise each month!

If you’re new to Luxe Box or interested in finding out more, see my original post and visit the website!

A new addition from the team is the last chance opportunity. If you miss joining the group before 11.59pmSLT on the 14th of the month you now have an extra 24 hours! You will have until 11.59pmSLT on the 15th to pay the increased price of $3000L. A good opportunity but make sure you get in there early!

Here is my awkward unboxing video, let me know what you think!

Galactica

Every three months a brand new round of Limit8 will open with (yep, you guessed it) limited quantities of items being sold. There are over 80 designers participating and I think this is definitely an event to watch. Check out the website for more details!

This dress from :Moon Amore: is currently available at the event (limited copies!) and it completely blew me away. The skirt of the dress is animated! Here’s an example GIF:

Awesome af right? And it fit so well with SPELL‘s current gacha set available at The Chapter Four I was completely inspired!

Pokémon GO!

With the latest craze to take over the world being the super cool mobile game Pokémon GO, I thought this was a perfect time for some Cosplay in Second Life and show you some of my fave finds!

Pokémon GO!

All of the Pokémon items pictured are available for free or very cheap on the Marketplace and I’ve linked them directly. There are also some full mesh outfits available and this store is selling Pokéstops and Gyms for your land, so if you fancy bringing the spirit of Pokémon GO in-world then it couldn’t be easier!

I also wanted to mention the location I used for the picture, it’s a completely Pokémon themed sim where you can roleplay and actually catch Pokémon! You’ll land in front of a large noticeboard with lots of information and things to receive, then all you need to do is visit the Pokecentre and collect a thrower and some balls for a few hundred lindens and you’re good to go!
I’ve only explored a few of the many levels so far but I’ve had a blast using mouselook to throw Pokéballs to catch the Pokémon that randomly spawn. Enjoy!

Card Captor Sakura | Cosplay in Second Life

The Crystal Heart Festival is in full swing and catering to all your magical girl cosplay needs!

Card Captor Sakura | Cosplay in Second Life

This shopping event has many similarities to the Cutie Moon Fair in 2014, except whereas Cutie Moon catered more specifically to Sailor Moon this brand new event has a much wider variety!

I adore Cosplay in Second Life, it’s by far one of my favourite things to do in Second Life. I’ve been thinking of making Cosplay in Second Life a permanent feature of this blog where I’d put together outfits of (hopefully) well-known people. What do you guys think? Is that something you’d be interested in seeing? Let me know!

The Crystal Heart Festival runs through July 28th and is definitely not one to miss.

Also,
Have you picked up your free Seraphim HUD yet? The super awesome people at our favourite sales and events blog have created a wonderful free tool to use in-world for instant access to open events. It even has an option to turn on repetative teleport to help you get into those full events on opening day! Thank you Seraphim, you’re awesome.
