Hey there, my darlings! Going to keep this one a bit brief, as I’ve only just got time to show you the fullness of this gorgeous outfit before the time on the event runs out. (I need to clone myself so I can post multiple times a day; so many spectacular events and mainstore releases to celebrate!) So have a gander and visit the SLURLs below to get yourself over to this truly unique gacha event before the current round is fini!

Dazzling gacha fans with a truly unique experience are the fabulous crew behind The Epiphany event, going on through August 4th. Here’s a quick summary of how the event works (a more complete guide may be found in this Flickr post):
When you rez an item, you will get the option to either turn it in for points, or to keep it. You will be able to trade these points in for purchasable exclusives.
– Commons trade in for 1 point
– Rares trade in for 3 points
With 25 points you can purchase 1 “no transfer” exclusive item from any of the creators at the event.
The fabulous Jungle set that I’m wearing by Salt & Pepper includes several of those lovely gacha prizes, and if you happened to be pulling on the machine and received a duplicate, or perhaps received an item in a color that wasn’t to your fancy, you could then opt to trade it in for points. And the best part is that you can rollover up to 100 points until the next round of The Epiphany, if you’d rather keep them for future trades. How wonderful! This is exactly the type of system I had hoped existed when I first learned about gachas, and I’m thrilled that the team at The Epiphany have brought it to fruition. But hurry if you’d like to play: the current round is only on through August 4th!
A couple more lovely things to mention: the dreamy, perfectly wispy braid by Besom, which is exclusive to the N21 event through August 10th. It’s hard for me to quit that gorgeous Fade Dye color HUD, and I think this hair color matched so well with the beautiful and tropical Lilly Half-Wreath by ERSCH. And I’m so in love with the Avian Sandals by REIGN, which come with 6 unique feather colors in the HUD. They were part of the recent Saturday Sale, where all flat sandals in the shop were priced at a mere L$50 per pair. Incredible! All apologies that I didn’t have a chance then to post about it, as I only just learned of it in the nick of time and it was a one day sale only. To keep up with the flash sales of Second Life, join the Fifty Linden Fridays and Saturday Sale groups in-world. You’ll be informed every week of all the wonderful goods on offer, with SLURLS and vendor pics for easy planning. I highly recommend it!
Off to snatch some rest for now; have a wonderful time at The Epiphany, or if gacha’s not your thing, be sure to check out the all new WearHouse event that’s on through August 28th. The delicate tattoo and absolutely gorgeous skin I’m wearing are both from the event by SwaggedOut and L’Etre, respectively. These two designers are new to me, and I’m really loving them both. Enjoy! ♥
