Here, There, and Everywhere – or, What’s with the Price Gouging Trend?

Like many of you, I use my SL weekend time to flit around the Grid to see what’s new. I subscribe to event notices and visit when I can. Sometimes I buy, sometimes I recoil in horror – but it all adds up to learning what is happening with designs and designers, bloggers and shoppers.

I’ve noticed a recent trend, which I find a little annoying. I’ve been to a few events in the past week or so, with a HUGE disparity in pricing. This is usually fine, because you can often find quite a mix of items – template vs original, established vs growing business, and a multitude of other factors.

I went to a popular event a few days ago, and found items hovering around the 500L mark EACH, for pieces of an outfit. I know the arguments that designers can price their items as they wish, and I have no issue with this. I can also pay what I wish, and I don’t know too many people who would happily pay these prices.

I have just come from another event, where I found similar pricing. These items were priced at around the 400L mark, and were ALL templates. Now, I have no issue with templates, but when I see template mesh with template texture added, and the asking price of around 400L – well you can just count me out of this charade. And spare me the debate about cost of templates, hours of work etc etc. Nothing, in this virtual environment, justifies these prices for templated items!

Now on to the fun stuff – here are a few things I’ve gathered on my weekend jaunt:

Here, there, and Everywhere

This outfit I’ve put together with pieces available at Blueberry, including the hair. I am wearing the Sweater Crop Top and the Beads Belt Denim Shorts. My hair is also from Blueberry, the Alessa style. The tank though, is a system layer piece that I got from fri.day quite a while ago. System layers can be very useful, and you can likely still get them at the fri.day marketplace store .

Here, there, and Everywhere

This cute little coat is from a gacha from Sweet Angel at the Room 69 event. My hair is from uw.st at Creation Japan event.

Here, there, and Everywhere

This little dress is one of very many available at heavily discounted prices at Liv Glam, as they transition into a new brand. Go get yourselves a bargain while you can!

Here, there, and Everywhere

This nifty little A-line dress comes with a colour HUD to suit your mood. From A & Co, its a handy addition to your wardrobe. My hair is by Olive for Uber.

Here, there, and Everywhere

And this final item is a gift you can get from Aisling. Too cute!

Happy shopping!

Uber Opulence

The January round of Uber opened less than 24 hours ago, with the theme of ‘Opulence’. Many of the items certainly live up to this!

Uber Opulence

Uber Opulence

My dress is the Overture Satin dress from Tres Blah

Uber Opulence

This hair is the Sapphire style from Little Bones. There is LOTS of hair at Uber this month!

Uber Opulence

I just love this outfit, which consists of Metallic Lace Skirt, Cinched Sweater (the construction of this is unbelievable) from Ison, available as separate pieces, and my definitely over the top Opulence Sunglasses from Pure Poison.

At this month’s Uber, I was surprised to see that some designers had significantly higher prices on their items than I had seen for quite some years. Of course, a designer is entitled to put any price they like on their creations, however I have not seen some of these prices since 2007 or so. To price a jacket at 500L is the prerogative of the creator, but then it is also my choice not to purchase. I will not pay these kind of prices for a garment that is only part of an outfit.

In other price news, it was most heartening to see that Truth has lowered the price of the Minerva hair to 200L per pack. Well done Truth Hawks for this move, much appreciated by the shoppers!

Happy Shopping!
