UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Hair from no.match

UPDATE March 11th, 7:00 a.m.: Unfortunately, it looks like no.match has suspended their daily free hairstyle gifts. As of today, the All Day Mania panel has been replaced with a group gift (it costs L$50 to join the no.match group). Sorry!


Did you know that no.match hair store is giving away a free hairstyle every day? It’s completely free. You don’t need to join any group to get it, just click on the gift box in the store at this SLURL:

Sometimes the freebie is male hair, sometimes female, and some styles are unisex. The daily gifts can be fatpacks of all colours, or just one colour set (blondes, brunettes, etc.).

Here’s an example of a beautiful, elegant updo I picked up this week, which came in a fatpack of colours:

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Get the Altamura Marcus Full-Body Male Mesh Avatar for Only L$343!

Clodet is not the only special deal for members of the Altamura Design/Mesh Avatars group at the 2019 Skin Fair in Second Life! There’s also a bargain on a fully-adjustable, Omega-compatible male avatar, called Marcus (here’s the SLURL to take you directly there):


Marcus has a more mature, weather-beaten look about him. For only L$343 you get a full-body mesh avatar with two sets of skins in four skintones each: one set for a middle-aged man (the top row in the included HUD), and one set for an older man. Please note that you must join the Altamura Design/Mesh Avatars group for L$50 in order to get this deal.

Here’s a look at the included HUD, along with the lightest skintone of the old man skin:

This is what the middle-aged man skin looks like (note that there are separate shapes and eyebrow shapers for both the middle-aged and older man avatars:

This avatar is wearing:

Mesh Head and Body: Altamura Marcus (from the Altamura booth at the Skin Fair 2019)

System Eyes: Dream eyes by YS&YS (old gift; no longer available)Hair with Scarf: Chella hair by Analog Dog

Shirt: Vivien shirt in coral from A&D Clothing (old hunt gift)

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Get the Altamura Clodet Three-Ages Female Avatar Package for Only L$360!

I have an old woman avatar that I like to pull out every so often and use while visiting popular places in Second Life such as Frank’s Jazz Club, the Lesbian Teahouse, Fog Bound Blues, Muddy’s Music Café, and other spots where people like to congregate. I do this deliberately in order to demonstrate that, in a place like Second Life, where everybody seems to be young and beautiful, old age can (and should) be represented as well.

I was anticipating that Altamura was, once again, going to have a special deal for group members at the 2019 Skin Fair (here’s the exact SLURL), and I was not disappointed. You can pick up the Altamura Clodet full-body female mesh avatar package for only L$360! (You do have to join the Altamura Design/Mesh Avatars group for L$50 to get this deal.)

Here’s what the vendor panel looks like in the Altamura store at the Skin Fair:

And the best part is, you don’t just get one avatar. You get three! There’s a young woman avatar, a middle-aged woman avatar, and an older woman avatar. Three different ages in one package! That works out to only L$120 per full-body mesh avatar!

You use the same HUD for all the avatars. There is one mesh avatar for young Clodet, and a second one for middle-aged/old Clodet. Note that while the young Clodet comes in 8 skintones, the middle-aged and old woman versions only have 4 skintones each, which you select as shown on this diagram:


The young woman avatar looks like this, straight out of the box (I just turned off the head and ear tattoos):

This avatar is wearing:

Blouse: Cream embroidered peasant blouse by Petite Mort (from the freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil)

Here is what the old woman version of Clodet looks like, right out of the box (all I had to do was select a skintone, tint the eyebrows to match the hair, and adjust the mouth a bit to make her smile):

The Skin Fair runs from March 8th through to March 24th, so you have plenty of time to get down there and take advantage of this special offer (right now, the sims are jam-packed with shoppers, so you might want to wait a week or two before you try to get in).

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Baby Monkey (Part II)

I had already profiled the freebies and lucky chairs at Baby Monkey before on this blog, but I decided it was time to pay a return visit. To my surprise and delight, I discovered an extensive sale section located in a skybox high above the main store on the Keraxic sim (please note: this is an adult-rated Second Life sim, so you need to set your viewer settings to include Adult content if you want to be able to visit the Baby Monkey store). Here’s the SLURL to take you directly there.

Baby Monkey Sale Section

There are dozens and dozens of older women’s clothing and footwear items for sale for only L$10 each! Every item comes with a 30- to 35-colour HUD for even more versatility. One example of a wardrobe staple is the Dillie flats, which come with a HUD to change the colour to one of 35 options:

Another inexpensive must-have is the Jana pumps, which come with a 32-colour HUD to allow you to match any outfit:

But Baby Monkey has more than just shoes! Here are a few of the outfit pieces which are available for only L$10 each. Each outfit includes a colour HUD to match Baby Monkey shoes.

Look number 1 is the Eleni T-shirt and Clair pants, with the Dillie flats:

Look number 2 is the Laura sweater paired with the Felka skirt and Jana pumps (the skirt comes in 32 different colours, and the sweater in 35):

Next up is the Cameron dress with the Jana pumps again (the 32 colour choices in the HUDs allow you to match the shoes to the dress perfectly!):

Our fourth look is the Pelia party dress with the Jana pumps:

And finally, we have the Ceci jersey minidress with the Dillie flats:

So, for a total of only L$90 (less than the cost of one outfit at most Second Life stores), you can pick up a whole colour-coordinated wardrobe! Now that’s a great deal!
