Take a look at this 1950s inspired outfit I was able to put together for next to nothing!
This avatar is wearing:
Mesh Head and Lipstick: Giselle Bento head by Altamura (no longer available for free; this was an Altamura gift from last Christmas at the eBENTO event, and you had to join the Altamura group for L$50 to get it)
Mesh Body: Jenny Bento body by Altamura (no longer available for free; this was a gift last Christmas from the Women Only Hunt)
Hair: Hair Ball by Vanity Hair (free from the SL 15th Anniversary Shopping Event)
Earrings: Dark Mouse Vintage 50’s pearl stud clip (old free gift; no longer available)
Dress and Flower: Rizzo Dress by Giulia Design (free from the freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil)
Shoes: Dahlia Mary Janes by Poppy (free group gift; unfortunately, this store seems to have closed)
TOTAL COST OF THIS AVATAR: L$50 (Altamura group join fee)
Pictures were all taken at the 1950s and 1960s Time Portal zone by Jo Yardley.
From June 22nd to June 24th Scandalize has removed the L$100 group join fee for their group, as part of their 2nd-anniversary celebrations. Why is this a big deal? Because when you now join the Scandalize group for FREE, you can pick up no less than 88 great group gifts!
Here’s a link to the group: secondlife:///app/group/c6b27443-12c9-083f-efd2-d56dfaf2ec3a/inspect (copy and paste this into the chat window of your Second Life viewer). Or just search for “Scandalize” under the Groups tab in Search.
The group gifts wall is located on the wall behind the main reception desk:
There are 77 gifts on that wall, and when you turn around, there are another 11 free group gifts of jewelry on the counter! (There are actually 13 vendors, but two don’t work.)
So, if you haven’t joined yet, because you are short of Lindens, now is your chance!
If you’re looking for some inexpensive hair for your female avatar, you might be interested to know that Rezology is having a 90% off sale on almost every one of their dozens of hairstyles! Here’s a link to their store on the SL Marketplace, where most of the styles are currently only L$25 to L$28 each. Each style comes in six basic colours but you can tint it just about any colour you wish using the included HUD. Happy shopping!
Here’s another store that has 5 free group gift hairstyles for female avatars. There is no cost to join the Lamb group, and right at the entrance to the store is a display with five free hairstyles:
