Tutorial - Gacha Minion - Part 1 - How to get Started

I'm doing something a little bit different today. I had always planned on offering some tutorials of some sort, regarding sl, on Free*Style.

I can't say this is exactly what I had in mind for my first one, but it is about something I am sort of excited about.

There are going to be a ton of pictures, so I am going to put a break here, for those who see this on a feed, and not on our Original Free*Style site.

Today I am going to be showing you about Gacha Minion, a new tool, which will help you with your gacha collecting, selling and trading.


Why would I be putting this on Free*Style? Well, Gacha Minion has a free version of their product, though limited, which I feel can suit the needs of some of our Viewership here. We also cover gacha items on Free*Style, so I thought it was relevant  as well. I think that even if you just have the Starter account, and either don't feel the need to have the other features, or simply can't afford an upgrade, there are other very valuable things about this tool, which I will try and show you.

I am going to take you through the setup process of the free account, as I myself do it. Gacha Minion as a company has it's own tutorials and answers many questions of the Official Site, which I have links to at the bottom of this post.

This is just my experience, setting it up.

It's cold out!


The wonderful thing about Second Life, is no matter how cold it is in my first, I can put on a summer dress and no one will look at me like I am crazy. They just look at me that way because of the way I dance. =)

  Happy 5th birthday KittyCats!  I was very excited to get my two free KittyCats indeed!  I was also bummed when I messed up and when got sick.  But then I was happy because it made for an adorable picture, plus I know he will get better very soon.
  Here's to hoping for another five years!

Deadly Briar



One of the worst parts about having my laptop taken in, is that I lost all my personally made windlights. I did manage to find a few that had escaped the wrath of a factory rest. They happened to be the ones more for my store ads, and not my blogging ones.

So I am in the process of recreating some, as well as taking some tutorials on some things I always wanted to try.

Due to this, my photos might not be the greatest for the next little while, but i hope to get it sorted soon.


That being said, I am very excited to show you a few things from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival(which runs until the 15th of March). I fell in love with this event since the first one popped on the grid, and have had the privilege of being invited to participate in a few of them as well.

I found this skin while out doing the Jack or Jill hunt, and had plans to share it with you all, so I was glad to find that I could mix it with some of my FGC items.

There is always time for Learning


I finally have my laptop back. It has been in the shop for so long, and trying to use my braindead (as my sister calls it) old laptop  has been utterly brutal. I managed to do not much of anything on it, taking a single pic was a 2 day task.

Glad to be back, tho sadly it seems to be the wrong time to find freebies inworld.

EVERYTHING IS PANK!

Can't wait until next month, it is my second fav month in SL for fashion. I love green, it's a whole month of green!

There might be a few of you who do like pank, so here are a few things for you to enjoy.
