Is it me or does it feel like Uber is one of the hardest monthly events to get into? I mean, if there is something that I just have to have, I activate my teleport HUD and go afk to make a cup of coffee. And chances are when I get back I am still trying, banging my fists on the teleport screen to let me in. Most of the time though, I wait the almost required three days before even attempting to get into the cam shopping sim.
If you are a frequent shopper of events, please consider being courteous. As in, get your shit and get out. Don’t camp, don’t go afk once you’re in and for the love of God, keep your laggy attachments at home. I kid you not, I saw someone at Kustom9 on opening day riding around on a floating ball of fluff (it was a chibi of some sort). So not necessary. You don’t need to look cute when you go to a packed event. I promise you, we’re not looking at you or your fairy wings, or your 17 scripted accessories that are lagging the entire sim.
Oh, and event sim owners- a homestead is not your friend! A full region or more (possibly even cam shopping) is a must. Please don’t piss off the customer by having an event that no one can get into. Fortunately, the majority of the big events are set up to accommodate the needs of their clients but I’m still throwing that out there, ya know?
Anyway, I grabbed some really nice finds at the Uber event this month, so now that the initial rush of the opening day has passed, it’s definitely worth a look!

I had a pretty crazy week at work and so I didn’t have much of a chance to post before the end of my week. I always feel like I am behind when it’s been too long between posts, but of course we have to take the good with the bad, right?
Ever since I picked up the new props for LeLutka mesh heads, I haven’t been able to put them down. In fact, they were the first items to go into my ‘favorites’ folder that is included with the new Firestorm update. You can read more about that here.
The ‘Oral Fixation’ line is available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, where you can pick up the animated versions of a lollipop, bubble gum, cotton candy and yes, even ice cream. As you can tell from the HUDs shown below, there are so many options for each treat, including color changing parts, messy face details, multiple animations and static poses.

Have you ever had a song so stuck in your head that it toys with your emotions? The new song by Ed Sheeran is doing that to me. I can’t stop singing it!
Ironically, the title fits the design of this new sweater by Tetra. Perfect! It’s just long enough to be worn as a dress, or paired with pants or tights and I am absolutely envious of the frilly side ruffles.
I went a little daring and paired the shortness of the sweater with fishnets and thigh high boots from Empire, available at the new round of Collabor88.
On a side
rant note, a friend and I were discussing the changes in events over the years. I mean, whatever happened to the Collabor88 of years ago, where most items were just 88L? Now, you’re lucky to find something less than twice that. I get that mesh has advanced and the effort that goes into some of these really amazing creations is worth the extra bucks. Heck, I know I buy my fair share without even glancing at the price. But maybe its just me when I feel that what used to be a bargain event for all avatars has become something that not everyone can afford. There are definitely still too many new avatars out there that need the influence of a good event with top creators to get their foot in the door of non-noobness.
What are your thoughts?
