I used to be subscribed to MyGeekbox, and used to enjoy the anticipation. Wondering what I was going to receive, it was like a birthday each month – excited about the “present” and looking to find out what I was going to get. But it started to become a little stale recently, with more DC and console game memorabilia and less Doctor Who and Marvel. So I’ve stopped it.
Just in time, MadPea (the people who brought us games like the Ghost Town, the Interview, UNIA, and even more games than you can shake a stick at – like the new Inca Treasure Hunt) have brought out a Second Life version especially for men! The new SwagBag might feel a little pricey at L$1500/month. But when you look at the quality and names in there it’s absolutely worth it!
Why not visit their website, view what’s on offer and jump on the SLURL?
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a fan of Gatchas – I’d rather buy what I want, when I want it. Every so often though, I give it a try. And I never seem to get what I really want. So I’ve set up a Gatcha Resale Room on the Ethan Explores Marketsquare in Sebastian. At the Moment there are a couple of pieces from Apple Fall as well as some clothes from Gabriel. But I’m sure that more will find their way there.
I’m not trying to make money, just recoup losses – so they’ll always be sold for cost.
I went on the MOH7 (Men Only Hunt 7) to see if I could find some new designers. It’s been a while since I went hunting. I’ve found a few new stores that I’ll probably be revisiting in future posts.
But today I want to look at Gabriel again. I remember visiting it years ago, shortly after sculpties moved into the Second Life fashion industry. They haven’t stopped creating beautiful and detailed clothing. So, on my way around the Hunt I bought myself a new mesh Tuxedo. (I didn’t realise that my tuxedos were all standard layers and sculpties until I saw it and checked my inventory!)
Granted, they’re not the cheapest option. But they’re by no means expensive, and when you’re getting outfits that are this level of quality – they’re absolutely worth it!
I couldn’t find a Marketplace store for them, which is probably why they’ve flown under my radar for so long. I do a lot of shopping while commuting and the MP is a great way to kill time! But they have plenty of stuff available in their Inworld Store and it’s a pleasant environment for shopping.
