25 Linden Tuesdays-Picking Shooms!

Here’s my other ‘pick’ of this weeks 25 Linden Tuesday items; a rather sweet mushroom picking ‘chore’ from ‘Firestorm‘. Obviously, judging by the poster this previously sold for L$200, but today it’s available for a fraction of that cost. There’s some nice animations included, and I’ve bought one and put it on my land because it’s just so sweet..and I like mushrooms. Especially in a big greasy fry up…nom nom!
Incidentally, out of shot to my left is another 25lt item, a HUGE public bath in white or black marble..a steal for $L25. In fact, while you’re here, walk over the stepping stones and check out the goodies at ‘Sweet Poison’. In particular I recommend that you pay a visit to the ‘Blowout Sale’ area. The sale ends on the 31st of March, so you have until then to take advantage of the bargains on offer, and they are plentiful. Remember what I said about seeing some of the best period furniture at Gorean themed stores? ‘Sweet Poison’ is a prime example, and there are some fabulous furniture items which would work just as well in Victorian, Medieval, Tudor, Gothic and Elven style homes. I’m extremely taken with the ‘Tree Of Knowledge’ room outfits, including a waiting room set, study and beautiful bedroom. Each one is highly detailed and has beautiful features; the bed is especially nice. It strikes me that this kind of furniture would be perfect in the new Linden Homes, alas because of the measley prim limit you wouldn’t fit much in. Anyway, that’s my recommendation for today,go and see both stores and see what you think!

You may not be aware of 25 Linden Tuesday, especially if you aren’t a member of the Fantasy/Gor role-playing crowd, but it is often worth checking out. I don’t understand Gor at all; I’ve read the wiki entry and that was enough for me because it all sounds way too patriarchal and complicated, but I know that there’s a whole genre of stores and shops offering items aimed at this niche market and some of the wares sold are really special indeed, and can of course be adapted to other uses. It’s a fact that some of the most beautiful rustic furniture I’ve ever seen in-world I have discovered on sale at various Gorean outlets, so to me 25 linden Tuesday is always worth checking out. This week is a mixed bag, but I discovered a great outfit called ‘Nickeled and Dimed’ at a store called ‘Spellbound’ I guess the premise is that you are a slave being sold at auction, because the outfit comes with a slave tattoo and a nickel to wear in your mouth. Sorry, but no matter how it’s sold I can’t romanticise slavery, so I’ve disregarded those elements completely and left myself with a very pretty bikini. It also comes with a small skirt with a coin-belt decoration, and the option to wear the skirt with an attached coin purse, but what really attracted me to it is the bikini top, because it looks as though it’s been created from an illustration of crystals attached to a string mesh..it’s rather sweet. I dunno, I just liked it and thought it would look good on the virtual beach, and at L$25 it’s definitely not a bank-breaking purchase.
