in case you’ve not heard, there is a new “subscription” service in sl called luxe box. it’s like all those popular surprise boxes in rl.. you pay a fee every month for a box full of goodies, delivered right to your door, and you don’t know beforehand what you’re gonna get.
this concept, to me, is quite appealing. not only do i love surprises and subscription boxes in rl appeal to me a lot too, but also.. for luxe box, it was basically all of my favorite brands participating. blueberry, foxes, tee*fy, erratic, reign, tres blah, magika, scarlet creative, mish mish and so on.. the line up is pretty good, yeah?
so i joined basically the *second* the group was open, and i excitedly awaited my box…
and i gotta say, i’m pretty pleased with it!
for the first one, the contents were fantastic. fatpacks.. fatpacks everywhere! cute dresses, *awesome* shoes, cropped tops, lovely hairstyles, even houses && furniture. i’m wearing my personal favorites from the box above, and had so much fun unpacking everything && looking at it all.
i will say, though.. there were a couple of items inside that i wasn’t terribly keen on, and was a little disappointed that two of the items were maitreya lara exclusives. now of course, i do own that body, but my personal preference for mesh bodies is actually slink’s hourglass. it’s not a huge problem for me because i’ve just grown used to swapping bodies to wear this brand or that brand, but for other customers who may have just invested in one mesh body that isn’t maitreya then it might be a problem. for something that’s supposed to be a surprise.. that you buy before you can see anything inside.. it seems like it might be a good idea to offer things anyone and everyone can wear, not just owners of one specific body (despite how popular said body is).
overall, however, i really like the concept and am excited to see what comes in the next few months! as far as pricing goes, i’d say i’d be willing to pay double, triple even quadruple(!) the amount of this first month as long as the quality and color options for the items in the box remains the same. it could be that this first month was fatpacks galore because it was the very first one, and as the months go by that could change, but at least for now.. i’m willing to keep subscribing to see what comes.
did you subscribe to luxe box? did you like it? i think it’s fun and exciting, and something different than the insane amount of sim-specific events. i’m looking forward to seeing next month’s box and beyond~
