Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: FaMESHed Eighth Anniversary Round Gifts

One of Ryan’s top tips for freebie shopping is:

Check out the yearly anniversaries of regular shopping events; quite often there will be freebies at all or most of the participating vendor booths. For example, both FaMESHed and the eBENTO event have their anniversaries in May, and the popular Uber event celebrates its anniversary every July with many freebies.

Well, it just so happened that the hard-working people who run the FaMESHed event just sent around the following announcement:

Happy Birthday to FaMESHed!

We started in a tent, and here we are 8 years later… We have a special setup for this round.

SPOTLIGHTS BY: Di’Cor | Lapointe & BastChild | {le fil cassé} | Rise Design

Please note: This is a bigger round than usual, so please try to make sure you are not overloaded on scripts, and think of others around you. There is a lot of gifts this round.

Open: NOW until May 27th, 2020, at 11.59 p.m. SLT/’Pacific Time
Main Venue
Cam Shopping Sim
Update Group Sim

You do have to join the FaMESHed Update Group for free to pick up all the gifts, one gift box at most of the vendor displays. The first few days of FaMESHed are always busy, and it is even more so on their anniversary events every May! In fact, the event is currently so jam-packed with fashionistas on its opening weekend, that I had to use a tool like the handy free Teleport Hammer —and I was already a Premium member with priority access to crowded sims! It’s a sign of just how massively popular the FaMESHed event has become over eight years. If you want a preview of items available for sale at the event, you can check them all out here.

Through dint of sheer persistence, Vanity finally forced her way into one of the cam shopping sims located next door to the venue, and she expertly worked her camera around and scooped up all the gift boxes! (Here’s my handy guide to cam shopping if you are new to this useful skill.) Then Vanity teleported home and unpacked everything to try it all on.

This is your preview of the many lovely gifts available from the participating stores at this eighth anniversary round of FaMESHed!

Scandalize

The Scandalize Joanna dress (which sort of reminds me of Daisy Mae from Dogpatch in the old Li’l Abner comic strip) comes with a truly dizzying array of HUDS, to change the colour and pattern of every single part of this dress and its belt!

{le fil cassé} — Garbaggio

Here is the summery Francine dress in seafoam by le fils cassé, paired with the Cheryl sandals in mint by Garbaggio, one of my favourite shoe stores on the grid!

GIZ SEORN — Valentina E.

This daring duo consists of the Demi dress in green by Valentina E., paired with a group gift of some laced-up sandals, courtesy of GIZ SEORN:

Vanilla Bae —MICHAN — Essenz

This Yves dress by Vanilla Bae comes in three ombre tones: green, blue, and red. The green tone matches the Mesa shoe in green, another quality footwear creation by Essenz. The delicate Amy winged heart choker from MICHAN completes the look.

[Provocation] — Pixicat — Mangula

This last look is a bit of a hodge-podge, I must admit: the Tony cardigan and top by Pixicat, paired with the Kiara shorts in deep pink by [Provocation], and the Lucia boots and socks fatpack by Mangula. I have included the HUD for the Mangula gift so you can see all the colour options for various parts of the boots and the socks!

You’re all set to go on a fashionable hike! (Maybe swap out the Kiara shorts for some lederhosen?)

These are just a very small sampling of the dozens of gifts available, including many wonderful items for your home or garden that I have not shown here. As I said earlier, it’s best to wait until the crowds die down a little bit before venturing onto the sim.

Happy freebie shopping!
