Please note that I am taking the entire month of July off as a self-imposed vacation from the blog so I can focus on my other work, except for sponsored blogposts, and the occasional exception such as this post. See you in August!
I stumbled across the virtual womenswear store DM in my usual peripatetic travels around the Second Life grid, which I had never been to before, and I wanted to share with you some of their plentiful group gifts!
Here is the exact SLURL to the group gifts wall; just click the swimsuit panel in the picture below to get a link in local chat, to join their store group for free (you won’t be able to do a keyword search under Groups for “DM” because it’s too short a word). There are group gifts for members of the No Cabide and Second Life Frees & Offers groups, plus a gift box which includes all the previous DM group gifts from 2017, 2018, and 2019! As a freebie fashionista, I absolutely love it when stores are so generous, and make picking up all their previous group gifts so very efficient!
The current group gift from DM is a relative rarity on the grid: a free women’s swimsuit, that actually comes in a size which fits Altamura mesh bodies! (The tops of most swimsuits created for Maitreya Lara bodies tend to fit Altamura bodies well, but the bottom half usually doesn’t fit properly.) This Mona one-piece swimsuit comes with a HUD with six different cheerful patterns as shown. If you have a freebie Altamura body (or one you bought), this is definitely a must-get item!
The Mona swimsuit comes in the following sizes: Altamura; Belleza Venus, Isis, and Freya; eBody Curvy; Legacy Perky; Maitreya Lara; Signature Alice; Slink Hourglass and Physique; and Tonic Curvy, Minim and Fine.
Another DM group gift is the Luana outfit as shown, including a pink, transparent top with a floral pattern, the distressed skinny jeans, and the high-heeled sandals:
This Candy T-shirt dress comes with a HUD with six different slogans:
Here is the Melina jumpsuit outfit, which includes the matching pumps shown. The HUD offers three different colours for both the jumpsuit and the shoes:
The Nanda set consists of a casual maxiskirt and a matching crocheted top. The included HUD gives you five different colours and patterns for each:
There are many other group gifts from DM; this is just a representative sample.
This avatar is also wearing:
- Mesh Head: the Giselle Bento mesh head by Altamura (no longer available for free; this was an Altamura gift from Christmas 2017 at the eBENTO event, and you had to join the Altamura group for L$50 to get it).
- Mesh Body: the Jenny Bento mesh body by Altamura (this was a free gift from the 2017 Women Only Hunt, and on this version only, you can remove the head and replace it with any other mesh head, as I did here with the Giselle head. Please note that the Jenny free mesh body is now available at the Freebie Megastore at London City (more information here), but you cannot remove the head on the newer free version.
- Hair: the Hurrah hairstyle from Ade, a free gift from the 2019 Hair Fair.
TOTAL COST FOR THESE AVATAR LOOKS: Only L$50! (the Altamura group join fee at the time I joined; the Altamura group now costs L$100 to join, but it’s still a good deal as you can pick up all their freebie male and female bodies. as well as obtain group discounts on Altamura products at various shopping events)
Happy freebie shopping!
