Gacha Frivolity

I loathe pink.  Hate it. Dislike it.  Abhor it. Detest it.  I’m really not a big ol’ fan of pink.  Any shade of it really.  Yet whenever I start playing gachas if there is a pink option, even lilac or fuschia or any sort of mildly associated colour to pink, I will no doubt walk away with the pink one (or close enough colour to) first go.  Vinny and I recently did the rounds of the Arcade and the Depraved Nation Luck of the Irish Gacha Festival.  I believe for about 10 minutes all Vinny heard was me cursing gacha machines for giving me pink.

The first gacha I tried at the arcade was for the new Truth hair.  While I got black, which is the colour I wear most, it was the pink faded option.  The first gacha I tried at Depraved Nation was for a neoprene mask.  Wouldn’t you know it, hot pink first go!  I moved on to the body shot tops.  Such a cute top and in some really nice colours.  My first one – Hot pink.  But even better I had a second go and got ‘pink’. This machine felt the need to give me both options of pink.  How thoughtful. Now I wandered all the gacha machines and had various attempts here and there and sure enough I got a pink version for 90% of the machines I tried (some had no pink versions which was a relief) and if it wasn’t pink then I was getting green or yellow or orange.  All colours I rarely wear.  The last machine of the day was for a cute pair of mesh jeans.  Wouldn’t you know it.  Look at that hot pink!

It was while I was standing at Depraved Nation cursing and carrying on about my luck that I said to Vinny that I was going to be brave and don all the pink thing I had been blessed with and write a blog post about my  misadventures. So there you have it.  Me in all my fabulous hot pink glory.  I managed to palm off a heap of pink items to friends that hadn’t been to the gachas yet, or that hadn’t picked up a pink one.  But I’m still left with a few items.  Strangely enough I also have a few duplicates that I just cannot trade or even gift to a friend because they are no transfer.  I find this really annoying.  I really need to pay more attention when flinging my money at Gacha machines because if the first item I get is no transfer then I’m sorry I am not going to play your machine.  What am I supposed to do with 5 pink tops if I can’t give them to friends?  Please designers participating in gacha fairs – being able to transfer/trade duplicates is a huge deal.  I hate naming and shaming so I’m not going to point fingers on my blog as to who has no transfer items, but just check your inventory as you buy.

Since I was in a bit of a weird mood with all my pink garb on I decided to jazz things up a little and wear all the other random bright colours I wouldn’t normally wear and include them in this post.  Once I started adding items to my look I realised I was having too much fun looking like Unicorn Rainbow Sparkles so I dragged Vinny into the picture with me and encouraged him to wear ALL the things too.  It’s amazing what look you can pull off when you continue to add things.  Just because you wear an item that attaches to your head doesn’t mean you can’t keep “adding” items and layer them up.  We were giggling like a pair of school kids putting our looks together and I had a set of poses in mind to complete it all.

!bang has released a new set of poses called Derby Girl.  I love it when your partner just jumps on a pose stand and lets you pose them how you will.  Thank you so much for being my extra Derby Girl Vinny. hehehe  As you can see the derby poses suited our mis matched outfits perfectly.  But don’t worry guys, !bang also have a set of poses out at the new round of Mens Department, starting today, called homme.  I had to include at least a couple of manly poses for Vinny so he tested the homme poses out for me.   Lastly I just want to point out that yes I do know how the shadows look in the background behind Vinny.  It just ‘happened’ while I was moving my windlights around and I couldn’t help it.  It had to stay.  The ‘toy’ you see in his hand is in fact a weapon that shunts other people if you hit them with it.  And it’s at the Depraved Nation gachas.  There’s nothing better than kickstarting your week dressed like a hobo derby girl, wielding a rabbit vibrator and having a ‘lightsabre’ duel.  Ahhhh good times.
