Sinespace Shopping: What Your Starting 30,000 Silver Can Get You on the Sinespace Shop

When you first set up your avatar in Sinespace, the company generously gives you 30,000 Silver (a promotional currency which you cannot cash out) to help you get started in styling your avatar to your liking. Today, I thought I would take a female avatar, and see just how far I could take that 30,000 Silver to create a starter wardrobe for her.

My starting point is the Shyla female avatar from Daz Originals, which I picked up as a freebie using the promotional code from this Forbes article. Now, I do not know if that promotion code is still valid or not (ot was limited to the first 50 users), so why not give it a try yourself? You have nothing to lose.

Here is what my avatar looked like before I went shopping in the Sinespace Store, wearing an outfit and hairstyle from the default inventory, and the Shyla shape, skin, and eyes:

For some reason I always find the default hand size on the Sinespace avatars to be way too large, so one of the first things I always do is click on the Body button, scroll down to the Hand section, and adjust the slider for the hand size all the way down to the minimum:

To get the best bang for your buck, close your Outfit window and click on the Shop button in the row of blue buttons along the bottom of your screen in the Sinespace client. Then click on the Clothes tab, then click on the word Silver in the blue bar across the top. This will give you a list of items sorted by price from lowest to highest Silver:

I’ve already talked about the freebies you can pick up for female avatars here, so I’m not going to repeat that information. This time, the focus will be on getting as many items of clothing, accessories, and footwear as I can for that initial allowance of 30,000 Silver. I will also not be blogging about items from Sine Wave, as I want to promote the content creators.


An easy first purchase is this leather dress by ELL, for just 1,000 Silver:

Did you know that most clothing you purchase in the Sinespace Shop has a tintable Material button? Just open up your Outfit window, click on the Wearing button, scroll down to find the leather dress, and click on the Material 1 button to select a colour to tint it. Here, I selected red:

And this is what the final outfit looks like, with some flats from the default inventory:

Another 1,000 Silver dress from ELL is this asymmetrical Laila dress:

If you’re looking for a sexy outfit to go out dancing, look no further than the Blue Steel outfit by Monks, which consists of blue leather pants with a lace panel on the thighs, paired with a skintight lace bodice, all for only 1,000 Silver:

Heading to the beach instead of the club? The Daisy one-piece swimsuit by Peachley is only 2,000 Silver and it will definitely turn some heads!

You can pick up a five-pack of stockings with built-in panties from BlakOpal Designs for only 2,000 Silver. These Elegance stockings are worn on the avatar tattoo layer, and will therefore work with any outfit!

This lovely bodycon dress by Stitched comes in four different colours: blue as shown, green, red and black. They’re a bargain for only 2,499 Silver for each colour:

The following blue dress by wet.fm with its gold details is another great deal, for only 2,500 Silver:

This Simple Halter Dress by Junk.In.The.Box comes in eight different colours, for only 3,000 Silver each! It’s a wardrobe staple that you can dress up or down depending on what accessories you add to it:

Here’s a pro tip: if you buy the white version of this dress, you can tint it any colour you like!

After these essential purchases, you should still have about 14,000 Silver left to spend. So let’s take a look at some slightly more expensive items to round out that starter female wardrobe.

A good pair of jeans is essential to any wardrobe, and Stitched has these skinny jeans in nine different colours, for only 3,999 Silver each. (Again, if you buy the white pair, you can tint them any colour you want.)

This Simple Strapless Dress by Junk.In.The.Box comes in eight different colours, for only 4,500 Silver each. Again, I bought the white version and tinted it bright red for this picture:

For my final purchase, I decided to splurge on a gorgeous set of eyes, the Starlight Eyes in grey from ArkStudio for 5,000 Silver. Here’s a closeup, along with the unisex Spiral hairstyle from your default inventory:

So, as you can see, you can build an entire starter wardrobe for your female Sinespace avatar if you spend that initial 30,000 Silver carefully! I still have about 650 Silver left over after my shopping spree, to use on another day.

Decentraland Will Open to the General Public on February 20th, 2020

Image from the Decentraland website

Those of you who have been waiting on the sidelines while Decentraland develops will not have to wait much longer to pay a visit. In a blogpost on their official blog, the developers have announced:

On 20.02.2020, our dream of creating a unique, fully decentralized shared virtual world becomes a reality.

Decentraland, the first ever blockchain-based virtual world, is going live to the public.

The launch includes the establishment of the Decentraland DAO, full decentralization of the world’s infrastructure (communications between users and the serving of content), and, most importantly, public access to the very best the Metaverse has to offer. From now on, no single agent will have the power to modify the rules of the software, curate LAND content, modify the economics of MANA, upgrade the LAND smart contract unilaterally, or prevent others from accessing the world, among other decentralization features.

You should be aware that if you want a custom avatar name, that you will have to pay for it, which means setting up a crypto wallet and buying some cryptocurrency (ETH or MANA) on an exchange. The cost is 100 MANA, which works out to about US$3.50 at the current exchange rate.

It remains to be seen just how popular Decentraland will be among the non-crypto, average consumer, but it looks like we will find out this year! I wish the company good luck on their public launch.
