Uncommonly Rare

1 Arcade June_Uncommonly Rare

Sighs. I’m glad The Arcade only comes around once every three months, or I would be perpetually broke! I blogged about my beloved Happy Poo Skirt back in March at the last Arcade. This time, there was once again an item that I dearly wanted. Strangely enough, it was also a Common item – not a rare. And it cost me dearly!

You see, Strawberry Singh blogged the [Ladies Who Lunch] Grey Throne collar and cuff set as a sneak preview a week or so ago, and I instantly fell in love. After multiple attempts, I finally made it into The Arcade today, and after crashing four times, I finally was able to find the LWL gacha machine. Wouldn’t you know it, after my first six attempts, I have five of the six Rares, but not the Grey Throne I craved! I’m not a trader, and I was fearful of crashing again and not being able to get back, so I started hitting a few more gachas. And I got lucky with a LOT of Rares! I still haven’t finished sorting through all of my goodies, but I have been so pleased with my winnings that I will attempt to put together a few more posts to show them off!

Just before I left, I decided to give the LWL gacha L$75 one…more…time. Eureka! There was my Grey Throne!

Hurrying home, I quickly unpacked my collar and cuffs, tossed on my Rare skirt from tulip., my Cafe pumps from Ingenue, my Red Eye Flight hair from Clawtooth, and my very first Glam Affair skin, Lulu 4. I know the flowers don’t really match my outfit, but I wanted to use this Rare pose from Adorkable – my absolute favourite pose maker, who is, sadly, going out of business 😦 So you can be sure I took more than one spin at that machine! In fact, everything I’m wearing in this photo, except my top and eyes, came from this round of The Arcade.

Here are the credits – I wish you luck in winning your favourites!

      lol I was tempted to see if anyone would trade it for a Rare! Now I want the 6th so I can try to sell the full set of Rares for a ridiculous price so I have cash for the next round 😀

    lol I still can’t get in Arcade, its always full. I think they have a thing against Cao’s going in there and clogging up the place….
