[Outfit] One: Coal Pit Tricketts [Red + Black + White]

Woo, a photo worthy of 2010. Go me. :3
This is sort of the start of a new direction. I’m a slow person and I like to add as many layers and attachments as possible and freebie blogging is a lot more about being quick and simple.
“Back” to basics and creating a portfolio of outfits I’ve worn on a regular basis for the most part.

I pick up a lot of freebies and I’ve been doing that for years so a lot of items I wear are now discontued but I’ve done my best to weed out things I know are definitely gone. (I’m also a sucker for closing/retiring sales. People should never close, just retire the worthy stuff to MP. x: )
In future I might try and replace some of the retired things with simialr things still avaible but sometimes you just love those things so much or they fit so well, it’s not possible. x:

[Freebie] St. Valentine’s Skin Haul

(Or Trickett Remembers Atmospheric Shaders This Time.)
This posts is pretty late in coming, kind of like a lot of previous posts. x: There’s a lot of preperation for me on these kind of things. Trying to get a stable vision about what shapes to wear and what poses to use (oh how I’m startingto hate finding poses) and what hair to wear. Throw in some long, long naps, one very slow computer and one very slow Trickett and it can take a few days for me to go from deciding to blog to actually posting. x:

This post is focused on a few skins I’ve collected over the month. :3 Because they are skins, it comes with a disclaimer. x:
I’m always very nervous about blogging skin stores. Skins are a very tricky art. A lot of the newer skin stores appearing on the grid (well by newer I mean in recent years) learn and work with modifying premade, full perm, tempaltes they have purchased from other players. Some of these skin templates are legitimate templates, created by the original seller. But many are not. Some are direct rips but many are hybrids. Without knowing very much about very many stores (information such as who hand draws their skins, who sources their own work, who sources from open sites such as Renderosisty and how modified they are and who uses tempaltes from SL) it’s very difficult for all users, whether they be customer or designer, to know which skins are legally sourced and which are not.
All the skins stores I post are, to the best of my knowledge, made by honest creators. If you later pick up any of these skins and find questionsbale features about them, I think it is best to get in contact with the creator using a well written NC that explains your concerns that they may have purchased a tempalte using a ripped and/or Frankenstein skin. It is not a good idea to start a witch hunt. x: If you find the creator to be overly defensive or they have suspiscious excuses, then you may want to send the NC to the person who you feel is the original creator. But as I said, without knowing a lot of things abotu a lot of skins, this may in the end be futile. Unfortunately these problems put off original skin makers, I too increasingly feel there’s very little we can really do about it. :/

On to the pictures. o: (Activate random resize.)

These skins and the shape are from Heartsick. The Heartsick group is very generous and currently costs 10L to join. There is always a group gift every month and there is often previews given out too. Currently, there is different skin in store set to 50L everyday. For St. Valentine’s day there are six skins, both male and female to be found. o:
There’s a tone difference bewteen picture set 1 and picture set 2 because with atmospheric shaders on, white ambiance is incredibly bright and I didn’t really notice untill I swithced to a paler skin and blinded myself. x: Incidentally, you may notice slight tone differences on some of the skins when you try them on in-world. I do try my best to capture how things look in-world but enviroment settings and graphic preferences will affect the tones. x:

You can find the red make-ups in the latest group gift in the archives. It comes with three tones and each tone comes with three clevage options and freckled versions. I really liked the frecks although I forgot to put them in close up shots. ): It also comes with the shape, which I also quite liked. :3 I often find most of the shapes by Heartsick to be well-propotioned.
The pink lipped skin is a group gift in store and is only available in this tone.
At the time of writing the purple lipped skin was in the archives, however it only has a few horus before it expires. But in a stroke of luck, you can head down to the store and pick up a box for 10L containg past gifts and prizes including this skin and many others. :D
If you have a male alt or know a male avatar in need of skins, there’s also a 10L box and male group gift available. :3 I was going to make a male post but I was starting to flag a bit so that hasn’t happened. x:
The hair is all from the lucky boards at Alice Project.

These skins are from Modish. Modish is a relatively new skin store.

I’m not always very sure on the bodies of the skins but the faces are very cute. The store is currently in a lot of hunts, offers a monthly group and has just opened a disount room offering past exclusives, group gifts and hunt prizes for between 10L and 200L. I am looknig foreward to seeing where this store goes. :3 (Definitely hoping they drop the CGI morph graphics on their store logo/blog too. x: )

And a random assortment of other skins. x:

The orange lipped skin is a group gift from Al Vulo. The group is free to join and there’s always new gifts every month. I suspect this one will change for Valentine’s day so make sure you pick this one up soon. x:
The skin with the blue eye make-up is CStar’s monthly gatch. The price starts at 10L and goes up 1L everyday. This is the honey tone. :3
The skin I used for the full body picture is the Valentine’s Day group gift at JeSyLiLo. You can also pick up the Zombie Popcorn 6 skin while you’re tehre. :3

The pink lingerie used throughout these picture is the St. Valentine’s Day gift from long-running lingerie paradise, Insolence, while the cornflower set is also from Heartsick.
The cute pinky-coral hair is the Januray subscriber gift from Pomme d’Amour.

And lastly you may have noticed I wore tattoos throughout this post. They’re my little ventrue into the world of creation. x: Hopefully there will be more intersting and technical things to come. x: I’m going to write the store (which I have tentatively and generically named Pixel Heart (pixel heart.)) it’s own post in a bit. For now, the tattoos are available on the marketplace. I’ve put the full set up for 5L and a matching freebie of just the hand/lower arm on glove layer incase you have no Lindens to spare. It’s also the most suitable unisex part. x:

And I’m rather aware my links are not very up-to-date so I’m going to be fiddling with those in the next few days. Hopefully. x:

TL;DR

If you didn’t read it, there’s a lot more skins at Heartsick for 10L and Moddish has a disount room. x:

P.S.: Sorry, the lure of not linking to unfeatured items was too great. ): Maybe next time? Or maybe you can pull up search? x: I’ve also not linked to stores that I know are no longer around although I will link to stores that are still around but may not be selling the shown thing. I think. Also poses are hard to remember. I had them written down but my comptuer crashed and they weren’t saved. ): Also, considering colouring freebies blue or soemthing… Time to sleep, I think. :D

[Freebie] The Flesh Game

[This is a repost from Love/Hate. It is currently unedited. I had Hallowe’en posts but they’re out-of-date by now. x: I still haven’t figured out how to centre in WordPress. x:]

Today I learnt to take all the photos in one sitting. Or at least try harder to do so. x: Small camera angle discrepincies aside, here are a few prizes from The Flesh Game, the interactive game running on the Sn@tch and Pulse sims until November the 14th. (Post is not on last day, be amazed. o: )


The Flesh Game is not a hunt. Having said that you will have to hunt for the prizes. x: When you land, you will be prompted to buy the HUD which will help you navigate the game and gives you a horror-based story to follow.


Hover over everything. Buy anything with the Linden dollar cursor and touch everything that brings up a hand cursor. If you see any numbers, take notice of them because they will help you break the codes to the next room.
You’ll need to set aside a decent amount of time to complete The Flesh Game. As the slowest avatar on the grid, I have no idea how long it took me but I did have to nap before I could finish it. x: Should probably take the advice of friends and take an interest in that super food known as coffee.


Most of the prizes are hidden in small, repeated objects such as notepads and coffee books. Theres several more outfits and goods out there. Some of which I didn’t photograph, some of which I didn’t find. x:
As a note on the prizes: the Sn@tch boots have colour changing laces and socks as well as a no sock option. The Gauze boots also have colour change laces. Yay. :D The Forsaken cowboy boots only come in ‘complete’ form so you’ll need to mod them if you want them under your jean cuffs.


The Funky Junk sykbox and furniture is sperated into four boxes. I was going to take all the pictures in the skybox… But then I took a nap and changed my mind. x: Naps: they solve all my problems, except when they generate problems such as crashing my viewer. x: I think I’m officailly polyphasic this week.
I don’t really remember where most of the prizes were located now but if you have missed a specific prize and are desperate to know it’s location, drop a note before the 14th and I’ll try to help out.

All clothing, shoes, accessories and furniture from The Flesh Game.
Skin is by Mother Goose and is free at the Lavenda location.
Additional styling (antlers, hair, tattoos) is not free.
