There’s a new surprise hair sale in the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore! There are 24 boxes of hair, and each holds 3 different hairstyles in 3 exclusive colors. 6 boxes are for men, and 18 for are for women.
You don’t have to be a maths genius to figure out that comes to a grand total of 72 different styles—which if listed here in all their details would probably put you to sleep. But here’s the thing: at only $L50 a box, why not take a chance? You already know that A&A makes the best hair in SL, so you’re not really risking anything.
I can guarantee that this is a sale like no other, and it only comes once a year, so don’t miss your chance!
But you’d better hurry, as the sale only lasts through the end of January!
That will bring up links to all the vendors in the Expo. Scroll down until you see Alli&Ali Designs, then click on the link to the right of it. This will take you to the shop, where you can buy Shiki, either in the full set of 256 colors for L$1200, or individual sets of 32 for L$250.
Even if you’re not interested in Shiki, go to the store anyway: there are several other styles and items available and, like Shiki, all proceeds from your purchases go to the RFL and subsequently to the American Cancer Society.
And my personal wish is for you, dear reader, to have a safe and happy holiday season, regardless of your belief system. And if you don’t celebrate the holidays, have a safe and happy season ayway!
I simply adore the Rose Goddess tattoo. It’s a beautiful design and quite colorful. It comes in four different designs, all variations on a theme.
There are HUDs for Maitreya, Slink, and Bellezza, as well as Omega. Each HUD offers you 4 different designs as well as 3 different layers to wear them on. Best of all, they also allow you to remove them, as well.
Did I mention there are also designs for your upper thighs as well? Sorry, but this girl’s a bit too shy to model them here!
A nice backless outfit sets the design off quite nicely:
Not only because I’m also short and sassy, but because I look best in shorter styles. Besides, as a busy journalist on the go, I don’t have a lot of time to waste spend on caring for long hair.
What? You think it’s easy writing these posts? Between modeling each new style, taking pictures, editing them, and then writing each entry, I spend close to an hour every time. And I do it all out of my sense of public duty.
Well, that, and the fact that I love getting new hair every week!
See? Marina. Short and sassy. With its low display weight and affordable price, It’s right for just about any budget.
$L250 gets you the full set of 16 colors, or you can grab it in Blueberry completely free in front of the voting board.
An as always, if you wear your A&A group tag and buy the complete set from the New Releases Action Wall, 50% of your purchase price will be refunded upon purchase. So for this week only, that’s 16 colors for $L150! That should give you enough combinations to mix & match with any outfits you might ever wear.
I don’t know how many items they have in stock, but when I search Alli&Ali on the SL Marketplace and display 96 images per page in the results, it takes 96 pages to list them all! That’s almost 10,000 items, and there are more every week.
Now I don’t know about you, but I think that the fact they have that many items and each item has a unique name, is definitely worthy of respect!
And yesterday’s release is also worthy of respect.
Iris is a modified page-boy bob, just slightly longer. The complete set of 16 colors is now available for just $L250. But if you purchase it from the Action Wall while wearing your A&S group tag, half of that will be refunded to you immediately upon purchase.
Still not convinced? The style in Amethyst is a free gift at the Front Desk, and
Sand Blonde can be had for $L50 at the Special Offers Wall.
And here I am modeling Iris in my usual favorite shade:
My usual complaint about A&A applies to IRIS as well: every time there’s a new style at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore, it immediately becomes my new favorite! And this is especially true of the shorter styles like this one.
Iris. When you’re in the mood for short and sassy, you won’t go wrong with this one!
You don’t need to buy a body. The Mayreal bento head kit comes with a body. I use a Maitreya Lara mesh body simply because it’s a more realistic look.
All Mayreal heads come with a perfectly serviceable body, as well as a decent selection of skins that have been designed to match the head.
If you’re like me and would like a broader range of skins and makeup to be available, then it’s definitely worth buying an Omega Solutions applier kit for the Mayreal head. And you’ll also want to grab the Omega generic router.
But there’s a secret: the applier kits cost $L149 on the SL Marketplace, but only cost $L99 in-world at the Omega Solutions store. Oddly enough, the generic router sells for $L1 in-world but is free in the Marketplace. Either, you’ll need them both.
Do you use another brand of Bento head? No worries—Omega is sure to have the kit you need.
Which Comes First?
The body or the head? I’ve discussed this with several people in SL and they all agree: if you can afford only one, go with the head first. This will give you time to save up your Lindens ($L) until you can afford the mesh body of your choice.
I chose the Mayreal head because of the low cost; a Catwa head, in comparison, will cost 4 figures in $L.
Still Not Sure?
Mayreal heads, like most other mesh products, can be difficult to fine-tune to get the exact look you want. If you’re interested in the Omega system, you can check it out before you buy anything on their web site.
DISCLAIMER:I receive no consideration for this review from either Mayreal or Omega Systems. I am reviewing the products merely because I use them and have found them to be decent products.
