Rogue

I tried the new Genus Project bento head when it first came out and for as long as I fiddled with and tweaked my shape, I couldn’t seem to get it just right. Now, as I’ve been wanting to incorporate another mesh- take two. I started experimenting with various skins and makeups and finally ended up with this stunning combination, and one of my new favorite looks.

Roxy is by Glam Affair and was actually released back in July, around the time that the brand underwent some major changes in their skins. I am so glad I went back and found her because as you can see, she is perfect. I did pair the look with the the nude lipstick from the Jessica gacha by Genus, but it really ties the whole look together.

If you haven’t at least tried a demo of this mesh head, you should. While it is still in it’s Beta stage you can grab the full product for 3,000L$, with a free upgrade to the future full version. If not, the full version with end up costing you 5,500L$. As I’ve always been a huge fan of Genesis Lab mesh heads before this change, I think that this price is a steal. There was even a recent update on 10/31, which includes:

  • Neckline issues as well as tinting options
  • Skin tinting options
  • Hide button for the lacrimal
  • Two sizes of the main HUD
  • Separate eye move/resize texture options

Of course, while it is still going through the beta stage there isn’t as big a market for Genus appliers just yet, but you can still find some skins available at a few stores, including (not a complete list) :

Break the Rules

If you like gachas, but hate the dreaded lag, endless full sims, or duplicate commons that come from such machines, then you should probably check out the new PocketGacha event. I picked up these new sneakers from Vale Koer, one of the sponsors of this new event and I confess, it is the most painless gacha experience I have ever had.

If you’re just now hearing about it, PocketGacha is a monthly gacha event that is completely HUD based. This means no more fighting lag or waiting for the usual sim campers to get their shit and get out. You can shop pretty much anywhere.

Here’s how it works:

  • Grab your PocketGacha HUD. You can do this on the SL Marketplace, at the PocketGacha Headquarters or via the inworld group. If you join the group, you’ll automatically receive the HUD on the 15th of each month.
  • You can choose to play the gachas via your HUD with either Lindens or Tokens. For those of you that are unsure about giving access to your Lindens to the HUD itself, you can purchase tokens from the PocketGacha HQ at a non-refundable 1:1 transfer rate. The tokens will then be added to your HUD for easy play. Oh, and don’t worry, they rollover!
  • Finally, you can flip through the HUD catalog and pay to play each gacha, or if you prefer, you can buy the entire set outright. I definitely love this idea for the savings alone!

The HUD is super easy to use, and as you can see offers a way to search, sort and manage your favorite gachas for each round. It also offers help, landmarks and useful information about this newest event.

So, what do you think about the new concept of PocketGacha?
