March 31, 2014: 30L Love & War Releases From Whatz, Sweet Kajira & Velvet Whip!

Greetings to you all!

Today I bring you more finds from the upcoming Love & War event, sponsored by 30L events in celebration of its 4th Anniversary of providing 30L Saturdays, as well as a variety of fun events filled with well-priced and beautiful treasures for over four years!

The outfit I’ve put together for you includes items all found at this event, which will open on April 2nd and run through the 6th.  Whatz creator Titania Halasy has created a lovely original mesh creation for her gacha collection, of which I am wearing the ultra rare prize!  I felt this lovely dress paired perfectly with the gold collar and earrings created by Sweet Kajira.  The collar is one of the rare offerings, and brings out the fantastic warm hues of this dress!  Finally I added these fantastic bracers, Velvet Whip’s “Edi” bracers in brown (one of the common selections) to complete the look.  I hope you all enjoy!

March 29, 2014: 30L Love & War Goodies From Faida & Another Primus/Silk Worms Release for The Secret Affair!

Hello, thrifty shoppers of SL!

I’m excited to bring you another installment of The Thrifty Bondmaid, and highlight two lovely new items that are sure to meet your roleplay needs, in particular if you enjoy RP in a fantasy or medieval setting!

This gown from [FAIDA] is perfect for any medieval maiden and will be available as part of a gacha collection at the upcoming Love & War event, sponsored by 30L Events!  Be sure to mark your calendars because this event will not last long, running from April 2-6!  The dress I’m showcasing is the ultra-rare creation from designer Titania Halasy, and she’s done a lovely job putting together something that is not only gorgeous, but traditional enough for even the most picky role-player!

I was also blown away by the yet collaborative creation by Primus and Silk Worms, which will be available for purchase at the upcoming event, The Secret Affair.  I’ve been so amazed by the collections this team has put together, and the Crown of Thorns, shown in the following pics also, is testament to the quality we have all come to expect by designers Thord Karu and Trippy Fall.  The price tag on this item doesn’t fall into my 100L or less category…but I would be more than willing to splurge for a well-made weapon that doubles as a gorgeous crown.  What girl in her right mind wouldn’t?!

3-28-14c3-28-14dAlso be sure to check out the shops participating in 30L Saturday this week for some fantastic deals to hold you over until the Love & War event goes live!  Until next time, shop well, my thrifty shoppers! <3, Candi

March 28, 2014: 30L Love & War Collections From Luas, PA Designe, & Kitty Moon & Primus/Silk Worms Release for The Secret Affair! (Part Two)

I have more tasty treats from a variety of creators to show you in this post, thrifty shoppers, so hold onto…well whatever you’re sitting on!

For these images I wanted to showcase not only two new releases from Ainara, creator of Luas, but also some fabulous pieces from PA Designe and Kitty Moon!  Each of these items, along with many, many more will be available at the 30L Love & War Anniversary Event, held from April 2-6!  Make sure you join the 30L Saturday group in-world if you’ve not yet done so for more information as well as a landmark to the event!

The black horns shown here are one of three rare offerings from Luas “Astaroth” collection, and the top and skirt are one of the rare outfits you can win from another Luas gacha collection, “Nazirah”, also in black.  Each of these rare outfits come with a set of armlets as well as some really unique blue tribal-inspired body paint!  I was excited to feature the “Targaryen” key set as well with this ensemble, shown in platinum and one of the ultra-rare prizes available from The Secret Affair’s upcoming event “Game of Thrones”, which will run from April 6-30.  This piece was yet another successful collaborative effort by popular weapons maker Thord Karu of Primus and Silk Worms creator Trippy Fall and her design team!

I topped this ensemble off with a beautiful snake collar and matching anklets.  The collar is one of the rare items available from PA Designe for this event.  When put together with the armlets (not shown here) it’s a really lovely set!  Finally I selected this beautiful heart dagger armlet from Kitty Moon to complete my look.  These armlets are available in a variety of colors as commons, however the rare item includes a color-changing HUD!

I hope you enjoy what I’ve put together for you, and I hope you’ll visit the 30L Love & War and The Secret Affair events to pick these items up for yourself!

March 28, 2014: 30L Love & War Event Treasures From Luas & Les Encantades! (Part One)

Hello out there, fellow thrifty shoppers!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  If it’s not, perhaps some of the fantastic items I’ve got lined up will do the trick!  I know it has for me; I’ve had a great time putting some outfits together with all of the brand new goodies that will be available next week at the 30L Love & War Anniversary Event!  Running from April 2-6, there will be not only gacha machines with brand-new items from each creator, but also 30L items available for purchase and an item hunt!  If you’ve not marked your SL calendars, do it now!

For this post I’m featuring two new releases:  Two lovely takes on a “Game of Thrones” themed collection from Les Encantades!  I wanted to feature the crown jewel of this gacha collection first, the ultra-rare “Lannisters” tunic and skirt.  The textures on these pieces are really something, and with a variety of colors to choose from, you’re bound to find a set that’s perfect for you!

My eye kept coming back to the skirt portion of the “Tully” set, and I really wanted to feature it in a different light.  It is one of the common wins from *LE*, but it’s still without a doubt my favorite.  I personally prefer the look of this skirt with no top, however I know there are some bonds out there that don’t wish to run into battle with their Lolas flying in the breeze, so I paired it up with one of my favorite torn-looking tops from Luas, which pretty much goes with anything, and it really brought the look together.  I topped my second look off with a silver necklace and crown, common pieces from Luas upcoming “Astaroth” gacha collection, and I’m really excited with the results.  I hope you all enjoy!

March 26, 2014: 30L Love & War Gacha Event Releases From Primus, & 25L Finds at [Teri]otrope & Luas!

Greetings to you all, thrifty shopping friends!

I come bearing still more goodies for you all from the upcoming 30L Love & War Gacha Event, which will be held April 2-6!  For more information on this event, be sure to join the 30L Saturday group in-world, or visit the 30L events blog!

Today I’ve got a really special, custom mesh creation from one of SL’s most well-known and talented weapons makers, Thord Karu of Primus!  This unusual and beautiful melee combat weapon collection was a collaborative effort with Trippy Fall and her team from Silk Worms, and I’m really thrilled to showcase it today.  The version featured in the following images is one of the rare offerings, called “Sunburst”!

I was excited to pair this intricate new weapon with one of [Teri]otrope’s ensembles, Marla (shown here in red).  This selection premiered at yesterday’s 25L Tuesday event, and is both versatile and sexy, complete with both Cute Azz and Lola’s appliers for two different top styles, as well as a beautiful Victorian-style mesh collar!  You simply can’t go wrong for the price *and* the quality.  I slipped on my “Nubia” bangles and anklets from Luas, a custom mesh new release just in time for 25L Tuesday as well, to bring the look together.

But enough of my rambling, have a look for yourself!

Hello once more, thrifty shoppers!

I’ve got still more goodies for you to gobble up…well the images of said goodies anyway!  I couldn’t get over the lovely gown released by Bite & Claw for the upcoming 30L Gacha Event, Love & War!  This event will run from April 2-6, and celebrates four years of 30L events and Saturday sales.  What better way to celebrate than…that’s right, GACHA!

The gown shown here is one of two rare items that will be available from the ::B&C:: gacha machine, however there are an array of common gowns in several lovely colors to choose from as well, in case you already have a pixel closet full of little black (or white) dresses!  These gowns come with matching gloves to help in completing your look!

I was also excited to find the “Nubia” set of jewelry at Luas this morning, a new release just in time for 25L Tuesday, and the collar from that collection seemed to fit perfectly with this simple, but exceptionally elegant piece.  I hope you all enjoy the images I put together to showcase the work of these talented designers!

March 25, 2014: More 30L Love & War Gacha Event Goodies From Independent Objects! (Part Two)

Greetings again thrifty shoppers!

I’ve put together some more ensembles featuring items from the upcoming 30L Gacha Event, Love & War!  This will be a fabulous event; with no gacha pulls over 30L and machines from some of the grid’s *best* fantasy creators, this is going to be an event you must be sure to attend!

Earlier I featured some items from several creators, including *Independent Objects*.  I wanted to show a couple other items from *IO*, including the “Arla” staff, the other staff that will be available to win as well as the ultra-rare offering by *IO*, the “Valaina Ghost” dress.  This had a great, worn effect and felt it paired nicely with one of my favorite finds from this month’s The Chapter Four, my *alirium* Pan’s Horns, shown here in green.
