Fifty Linden Friday Highlights

Fifty Linden Friday soon comes around doesn’t it? It’s a proper Second Life success story; every week we get excited with hungry anticipation about who will be participating and what goodies will be on offer. There’s usually something for every taste and a great variety of products too, and this tried and tested formula has ensured the success of Fifty Linden Friday for over a year now, a prosperity that looks destined to continue.
There were a number of items that really appealled to me this week, some of which you can see in the photos accompanying this article. First up, Tiny Bird’s ‘Jailbird’ hair, a fabulous style incorporating a colour-change scarf enclosing a loose up-do replete with fringe. It’s an absolute steal at L$50, and is available in four colours. I say get them all, this is a hugely versatile look and four colours plus the colour-change scarf for L$200 is a gift.
I’m also wearing an Autumnally-themed top from Surf Couture, a store that makes some of the most beautifully detailed clothing upon the grid. I’m a huge-fan, and this top fits beautifully and really looks the part when teamed with the Tiny Bird hair. I only have a small complaint- the seams on the sleeves are very smudgy at the edges. This isn’t a problem that is repeated on the rest of the garment, so for L$50 I can forgive.
By far the most covetable items this week are the entries from The Loft. First up is the awesome drinks trolley, as highly detailed as you would expect a Loft piece to be. It looks brilliant, with baked in shadow and fabulous colouring. I love the bottle labels and the bowl of lemon and lime wedges; it’s beautifully executed and great for creating atmosphere, and only 19 prims to boot.

I’ve lost count of how many sofas there are in my inventory, but I sure couldn’t pass up the opportunity for another! This is the ‘Alex’ couch from The Loft, and a must-have. Again, it’s texture and shade perfect and includes very realistic quality sitting animations for both male and female avatars. I love the whole Loft ethos-by never skimping on quality, even on a Fifty Linden Friday item, they prove without a doubt what an excellent brand it is.

..Oh go on then, here’s another one, this time it’s called ‘Moon’.
The skin is from Curio, hair is by Tiny Bird, earrings are from Magic Nook and the dress is another one of my recent Sassy! finds..I must admit I’m liking the gaffer tape on the nips idea, but I’m glad it’s a virtual world and don’t have to peel it off..I imagine it hurts. Don’t even go there if you have hairy nips!

Tiny Bird Group Gifty!

 

You cannot miss this, because you will be kicking yourself for a very long time if you do (We all know you can do that in SL, have you ever experienced the bug that lifts your legs into the air? Most disconcerting when that happens..)
Tiny Bird has the smashingest group gift in their Festivale store.
Join the subscribo on the way in, and you’ll see the gift in roughly the centre of the shop. Buy for L$0 and wear. As you can see in the photo you have a basket of eggs; clicking on each one produces a folder in your inventory with a selection of colours, and the egg you’ve opened cracks in the nest! I chose the black egg and the colour I’m wearing is ‘Deep Black’. I think it’s beautiful. I have to say I’ve not been as stunned by the presentation of a gift in a very long time. Not only that, you get tons of colours for no spend at all. Now that my friends, is generosity.. Epic win for Tiny Bird it is then!
