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?

Kickin’ It

Getting fit is always one of the biggest New Years resolutions for concerned and hopeful people and while losing weight in RL versus SL is drastically different (if only!) it is still fun to pretend, right?

The theme for the current round of Collabor88 is ‘Chic Gym’ and I can tell you I’ve never felt more gorgeous as I throw some kicks and punches at my new gym pose prop from Purple Poses.

Several other events feature designers with fitness themed apparel and accessories, as well. Nata Porolo of Tetra has created these stunning new ‘Air’ sneakers for Kustom9. They comes in 15 colors, with two unique designs if you buy the fatpack.

I’ve been having loads of fun playing with all of the mesh heads I’ve collected over the last few weeks and with all of the new skins hitting the grid, I have a new look for every day of the week, it seems! Aida from Glam Affair has been pumping out one gorgeous new skin after another for both the new Simone and Catya Bento heads.

What is your New Years resolution?

Street Smarts

Glam Affair has a new release out this month as part of the Gacha Guardians. If you’re a gacha fanatic and haven’t played yet, this is an event you’ll definitely want to check out. ‘Alma’ is a lovely new skin that is made for Catwa’s Annie head, but since I’ve been in the market for a new one, I went with Dyana and lo’ and behold, she looks just as beautiful.

I loved the freckle-faced look of Alma so much that I decided on something a bit more casual today and the new Rena sweatpants by from Annie Melson (Just Because) are perfect for the imminent cooler weather. They can be dressed up or down and come in fourteen pant/string colors.
