Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Advent Calendar Gifts for December 5th, 2020 (Plus Gifts from Lara Hurley Skin)

Here’s my blogpost with links to four lists of Advent Calendars and 12 Days of Christmas Calendars, plus my “Top Ten” Calendars you should not miss in 2020!

First, before we get started today, I wanted to alert you that the Lara Hurley Skin store is offering a free head skin and shape for that freebie Chelsea head you picked up from LOGO, if you were on the ball! The Lara Hurley group is free to join, and the Maria group gift is free, just join the group and click the panel shown here:

The Bales on Mesh Maria skin comes as a full-head tattoo, with or without the black eyebrows, plus a couple of optional blushes. I think she looks quite striking with the black eyeliner!

Now, you will need to find a BoM skin to match, as there is not one included in the Maria gift package. However, in the next room over, are a number of other free group gifts, and one of them is a perfect body match to the Maria head skin!

O.K., now that we got that out of the way, let’s dive into the Advent calendar goodies available today! The December 5th Advent calendar gift from Virtue are the casual Margarita overalls outfit in yellow and blue (the Virtue group is free to join):

From Entice comes this lovely light blue top and matching skirt (the Entice group is free to join):

Pink Mango is offering a similar outfit, a gray wool top and skirt, as their December 5th Advent calendar gift (the Pink Mango group is free to join):

The gift from Justice is this sexy red dress, with a HUD to change the colour of the metal zippers as shown (the Justice group is free to join):

Today’s gift from Firelight Hair is the long, swept-back Lisea hairstyle, which comes with a mini-HUD with three shades of red (the Firelight group is free to join):

The gift from Vagrant’s Advent calendar is this red, knotted Chloe top (the Vagrant group is free to join):

Don’t forget to pick up all the Vagrant group gifts tucked behind the Christmas tree, including this skimpy little seasonal top which comes with a HUD with four different Christmas patterns:

Ho ho ho, indeed! (*badum tss*!!!)…and that is all the freebies I have for you today, folks!

Don’t forget to hit Wow Skins and 7 Deadly S[k]ins for their December 5th advent calendar gifts (if you belong to their groups). Here is today’s gift from Wow Skins, called Asia, in the sandy skin tone (the group join fee is L$199):

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Free Gifts from the FaMESHed December Round!

It’s Christmas time, and many of the vendors participating in the December round of the monthly FaMESHed shopping event have Christmas gifts for you! You do need to join the FaMESHed Update Group for free to pick up all these gifts.

Here’s a look at some of the fabulous fashion freebies for female avatars. This avatar is wearing three gifts together as one outfit:

  • the sweater is the gift from COCO Designs;
  • the skirt is the gift from Safira; and
  • the boots are by L&B SWEAR.

The detail on the boots are a little hard to see in the first picture, so here’s a closeup! These winter boots are by Lapointe & Bastchild SWEAR, and they come in Frost blue, Pine green, and Merry red, in sizes to fit most brands of female mesh feet. Truly beautiful craftsmanship by Lapointe & Bastchild!

The skirt from Safira comes in two versions, either with or without a large bow at the rear, along with a HUD to change the colour of the stripe on the red skirt and the included panties to one of 23 different colours (or, if you wish, to remove the panties entirely, but Auntie Ryan is not going to show you that! 😉 …it would shock the children!).

Here my avatar is wearing the SWEAR boots in Frost blue, with the same Safira skirt as above, plus the Christmas hoodie from Giz Seorn. She’s all set for a romp in the snow (well, okay, maybe if she swaps out that miniskirt for some snowpants!):

Next up we have this Unicorn pink bodysuit by Tori Toricelli:

The gif from Scandalize is the Lizzi dress with a separate belt, which comes in a fatpack of colours!

You can also pick up some nice shoes. The Mozambique heels from Essenz come in a three-colour HUD, plus the ability to change both the colour of the sole and the metal on the cheeky little safety pin!

From Gos Shoes, there are these lovely red sandals:

And there is a metric TON of jewelry at the December round of the FaMESHed event! Here are just a few examples. First up is the lovely ornate, antique Princess necklace from Junbug, with a delicate golden chain and a light blue gemstone. Isn’t it gorgeous? I will definitely be wearing this with a light blue ballgown at my next swanky soirée!

Kunglers offers the following Doriana necklace in two versions: gold pearl (as shown below), and silver teal:

The FaMESHed gift from Glitzz is the elegant gold Amira necklace, which comes with a HUD to change the colours of the gemstones:

Next up we have the Tressa necklace and earrings from Cae, which come with a HUD to allow you to select one of six different metals, and fifteen different gemstones!

The gift from EarthStones is the lovely Devorah necklace and earrings in bloodstone:

Finally, from Supernatural we have this chic, versatile choker, which comes in either white or black, in gold or silver, and with two HUDs to change the two sets of gemstones to 35 different colours, to match any outfit!

You can also find a few menswear and home decor gifts. This charming milk can, decorated with Christmas holly and branches with red berries, is the gift from Trompe L’Oeil, and the sweater this male avatar is wearing is the gift from ELEMEN’S (it comes in blue as shown or in red, in sizes to fit the Belleza Jake and Signature Gianni male mesh bodies).

Happy freebie shopping! This round of the FaMESHed shopping event runs from December 1st to December 27th , 2020, so you’ve got plenty of time to swoop down and vacuum up all the fabulous Christmas freebies! Here’s your taxi!

The December 4th Advent calendar gift from Entice is this summery outfit (and yes, I do like it when Advent calendars don’t just give me Christmas and winter apparel):

Finally, today’s gift from Alli&Ali Hair is this Catherine hairstyle in white, shown here on my angel avatar:

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Advent Calendar Gifts for December 3rd, 2020

Here’s my blogpost with links to four lists of Advent Calendars and 12 Days of Christmas Calendars, plus my “Top Ten” Calendars you should not miss in 2020!

Hoo boy, do I have a lot of gifts to show you today! So let’s get started. Remember, these Advent calendar gifts are only available today, December 3rd. Snooze, ya lose! So, let’s get started…and please note, unless I say otherwise, you do need to join the store group to pick up the following gifts (and, unless I state otherwise below, that store group will be free to join, so if you are short on group space like I am, you can join the group and then leave it).

Today’s gift from Firelight Hair is the long Clarissa hairstyle, which comes with a mini-HUD with 3 blonde colours as shown:

Virtue‘s Advent Calendar today gives you this lovely peach-and-white floral blouse and matching long skirt, which can be worn separately:

Here’s the gift from Wow Skins (group join fee is L$199). The Sharon skin includes Bakes on Mesh body skin, and is designed for LeLutka mesh heads, but as you can see, it works well on the LOGO Chelsea head I am wearing in this picture!

Here’s the December 3rd group gift from 7 Deadly S[k]ins (group join fee is L$1,000). Today you also receive the Hope Bakes on Mesh skin with lipstick as shown below, plus a male skin, plus a fatpack of the Miss Behave Omega skin appliers!

The gift from Essenz (L$50 for non-members, or pay the L$350 group join fee to pick up all of the Advent Calendar gifts, plus a fatpack of the versatile Wales pumps) is called Guayadil, which comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Legacy feet:

A large pink notice on the floor in front of the Advent calendar at Vagrant states:

So here’s a look at two of the gifts, from December 1st (the Camila earrings, which come with a HUD to select one of seven metals) and December 3rd (the Aurora floral wreath includes a HUD which allows you to tint the three different sets of the roses separately, either to match or differ, and also includes optional Christmas lights!).

Tucked in behind the Christmas tree at the Vagrant store are a whole whack of group gifts (the group is free to join, so be sure to scoop them up, too!).

Here’s the present from Emerald Couture for December 3rd, the Krista minidress in a plum-coloured snowflake pattern, perfect for your next holiday party!

Pink Mango offers up another minidress in blue suede:

The Advent calendar gift from Justice is this fern green Misty dress (which also comes in an ombre colour):

In addition to the gifts I have pictured here, there is a also a set of four unisex dances from Abranimations, a black puffed-jacket-and-T-shirt combo for men and women from ML Designs, and a pair of black sweatpants for male avatars from Fashion Fantasy (please use one of the Advent calendar lists in this blogpost to find the SLURLs).

Happy freebie shopping!

P.S. If you are in the market for an Ugly Christmas Sweater™, for only L$1 you can pick up the following red sweater from Xtra Ordinari (warning: adult sim), which comes in versions to fit a wide variety of both male and female mesh bodies:

And today’s Advent calendar gift from Entice is an absolutely HIDEOUS ugly Christmas sweater for women in purple and teal. I won’t show it to you here, you have to go over to Entice and see it for yourself. I have to give the designer credit, though…you have to truly work at it to come up with something so horrible!
