I can’t remember what I was doing when the notice came thru, I think I was already at the store, and bam! “Here is 1000 of Store Credit guys!”
So I have been in the LuluB group since I first discovered the store. I really like the vibrancy of the products as well as the really unique makeups. I also am an avid collector of eyes in Second Life, and well you can get matching sets of eyes and makeups, as well as wearables, all themed together, here at the store.
The brand has always spoiled group members and avid shoppers, which is another thing I enjoy. I don’t mind throwing lindens about for things I like, but it is always nice to see a fellow designer who likes to share their talent, and doesn’t feel like everything needs a price tag.
Anyways, I said 1000 Store credit didn’t I . . .
500 of that is for the group, so wear your tag and click the vendor. The other 500 is for a new venture, which I feel like promoting here on Second Life Syndicate. We here are about making a family for designers, helping them with promotion, growth and chances. Well the Designer of LuluB, ConLosRulosAlviento, believes everyone needs a chance too, who has started Exclusive Weekend, a weekend event that has no cost for designers to join.
I think sometimes customers don’t realize all the costs we designers eat in a month, to be in the events we are in. Sometimes you have a miss on an item, and you end up out 3k for your weekend sales event. I tried eBento for 3 months, and I just wasn’t a good fit, so was out a good 12k I think it was. For me, I can deal, but for a new designer, that is a lot of money.
I think sometimes, it is good to share this information. For customers and designers alike. Some things seem so hush hush and mysterious, and they don’t have to be. It isn’t a trade secret that event booths and weekend sales slots are expensive (I have to admit, a lot of it is a money grab. The promoters for most don’t actually endeavour to make sure you make your money back, and blame you for lack of sales . . . or so I hear).
Well we went off course a bit, haha. Back to the credits! so if you join the Exclusive Weekend Group(Free to Join), you can get an extra 500 credits, making your total 1000 LuLuB store Credits! That is a good start to trying out some new things, if you have never been to the store before.
If you are reading this, and are a designer, you can join up and take part in the event by filling out an application HERE!
It wouldn’t be a free credits post without showing you a bit from the store now would it! I am wearing this really cool huge halo sort of thing, called Lunaria, which I got with part of the store credits. I find a lot of the items at LuluB are space themed, which can be fund. Not a thing I use to collect, but have started in the last year or so.
I’m also wearing the new Luciferina Horns, which are for our own SL Syndicate Event, Mournful Mondays. Newer items aren’t valid with the credit, but the prices are really affordable, like these horns are only L$100, and a very cute but different take on little demon horns.
Sn@tch just did a release, with a new Fishing outfit, as well as a new Sn@tch-N-Grab item for only L$50. You can fish for these gloves and pants for free, or just get the corset for a deal(comes in a bunch of colours).
I’m also wearing the intriguing eyes from Soul. Amidst all the updates and new skins, sometimes people forget that there are a bunch of lovely peepers at the store. These ones will work really well for horror and zombie looks too, as the scleras have a really bloodshot or dirty feel to them. Love it! I like it when designers pay attention to the scleras and make them a bit different than the standard human base.
