BBBM is one of the first shops in world that I ever fell madly in love with. I just thought everything from the textures to the ads was so incredibly visually interesting and unusual for what I'd then been exposed to in SL.
The Big Booty, Big Money Navy Zygote Tiger Dress is one of my first SL purchases and still one of my favorite dresses to wear. Oh I just heard the strangest noise behind me. It was like a cricket really fast and loud or a cicada... only just for a split second. So weird. This next dress, the Big Booty, Big Money Space Ball Sunshine Dress I love more than the first. I love it because it's f'king huge. It flounces. It's princessy but not in a frilly little girl way. I'm not a frilly little girl. I wore it to the grand opening of the first Motel, Hank loved it. I think he wished he could have worn something equally grand.
Recently we've had the serendipitous luck to host BBBM in a giant sunken ship on Floyd. It's weird, it's awkward to walk through, it's dusky and filled with dangerous man eating piranha. I'm flippin overjoyed that Evelyn took the space and made it booty and moneyfull. It's neat, it's fun to explore and there are definitely worthwhile reasons to!
Evelyn's new dresses are so incredibly gorgeous. I've seen so few in world with the same quality and creativity behind them. Her Big Booty, Big Money Epilogue Dress, Metal isn't even my most recent favorite, but it's so lovely I wanted to put a photo of it here. The textures are rich, the colors are so complimentary. If you haven't been to BBBM and think your inventory is sorely lacking (which, I agree... it IS) then click on over and come see for yourself. Look around for a mystery gift as well as a stack of her older releases marked down so low it's a crime not to get them! BBBM on Floyd!
So last week Meat Carver joined our sick little family of Starlustland and ever since... every day it's been hard to stop playing with his toys and do work and stuff. A lot of people are already familiar with his products from his shop at Hotel Dare and/or knowing him personally. Since I'm a shut-in who rarely leaves Starlustland I wasn't and boy howdy did I nearly crap my pants.
I love trees and since we're always in favor of adding more to the boys, I plopped the "DEVO" ORANGE TREE down on Lloyd to see it in action before moving it over to the mountain area (which I haven't done yet... so if you wanted to see it in action too head on over to the Motel Lobby and look around for it) and I don't think this photo does justice to how awesome it is. It grows oranges that perpetually fall from the tree and roll away, it's genius.
Stein and I went over the other day together and immediately she started serenading me with her "DEVO" ACCORDION, which plays an addictive little tune on a loop. There are animations included that make your av. play it and we did for about an hour and a half. Nonstop
Lastly I think I got the most fun out of the "DEVO" PETS. It's as many pets as you could possibly imagine rezzing, all attached by chain leashes to a handle or stick that you hold in your hand. They follow you around, they're ride able... they wreak havoc. And havoc... well... I do so love to wreak it. Stein and I ran around the sims until she crashed, and after that I wrought some havoc on my own around Lloyd. Then I let them off their leash and sat down while they perpetually collided with people.
Anyhoo. I f'king love this store and I' m so glad Mr. Carver's finally joined us! Go visit DEVO on Floyd!
Walking into naith Smit's shop is like walking into a shop of creature comforts for me. Mixing my two favorite things... black tank tops and hooded sweatshirts. Mr. Smit has really lovely neko tails and ears, menswear and women's alike in his shop. This blog post isn't going to do the quality of Mr. Smit's designs justice. I simply love this shirts and you probably will to. So go!
The prison on Horst (located on the new sim next to Lloyd/Starlust Motel and the sim of Polly Jean) is opening tomorrow, Saturday October 11th. There are 19 new shops for your enjoyment. That means loads of new stores to see and loads of new freebies to enjoy. Come visit the shops (Zanzo, Rainbow Snail Design, Crimson + Clover, SINdecade, KessKreations, Hourglass Shapes, Pink Fuel, Draconic Kiss, **Trixi Stix**, Thistle Homes, Figure Eight, Ekstras, Sugar Mill, Zaara, Pink Outfitters, Thrashed, The Sea Hole, and Pixel Dust) and have fun exploring the prison.
