Fifty Linden Fridays- Farewell PDA

Penny Dreadful Arcade, a stalwart of Fifty Linden Fridays, is closing this weekend. I’ve always enjoyed visiting the store due to the creative and playful shapes they sold; I didn’t always like the poses, some were too left of centre for even my tastes, but I admired the fact that they were creative above and beyond the pose-making norm in Second Life.

Izzy, Samara and Esme are intent on going out with a bang though; and if you’re a pose addict you’ll LOVE this amazing offer available until Sunday night:

-ALL poses are L$10 EACH.

– 100+ pack of Izzy’s poses for L$ 1000 – which includes some unreleased poses (+ Fifty Linden Friday poses) and a few couples poses.

-120 of Samara’s poses for L$ 1000

The Fifty Linden Friday selections for this week are two packs of shapes, one called ‘Goodbye’, and the other ‘Last Poses Of PDA’
(In this shot I’m using the pose called, “You should never have opened that door” from the ‘Goodbye’ collection)

I’d like to wish the team behind PDA the very best of luck for their future endeavours, and praise them for the amazing poses that they created, which I’m sure enabled many of us to take some superb photographs in world.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the hair is from Lamb and the undies are by 5th and Oxford, both are FLF selections this week. (The jewellery is from Ganked, not a FLF item)

PS By the way my hand isn’t really that big, it’s the angle!

Fifty Linden Friday’s Fabulous Fireplace



Fifty Linden Friday, by it’s very nature, is a hit and miss affair. Because of the variety of designers and products included each week it’s impossible to guarantee that everything on the list will be to your taste, and I’ve not fallen for much on it recently it has to be said. But the quality of the items are always consistent, so I make the effort to check it out, just in case. I’m glad I did this week, because there are a few items that prove that sometimes it’s worth fighting with the lag and the crowds to get to the goodies.
Sometimes you get really lucky and find a ‘Bombshell’ item that is so utterly nommilicious that you just *have* to have it, and become almost evangelical about it too. That’s happened to me this week; I feel the need to shout across the entire grid and tell them to get their collective arses over to ‘PENNY DREADFUL ARCADE’, lest they miss exceedingly pretty fireplace. It’s stocked with books and the mantel is ideal for littering with candles as you and your beloved snuggle together in front (there are poses included in the cushions) It’s outrageously simple and that’s why I’m so excited about it, sometimes in Second Life we get so hyped up by all the frills, faff and frippery that we miss the really good stuff. This is textured and crafted so beautifully that it puts a lot of the more reknowned designers on the grid to shame, and it’s what, FIFTY LINDENS?! Are you insane?! You should take care not to miss this one. L$50 is bugger all in the grand scheme of things, and I’m leaving this in situ long after Valentine’s weekend. (Oh, and by the way, check out the DECO items on the list this week, as well as the goodies from BOTANICAL…both excellent choices if you ask me:)
