Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: MH Unique Design

One of the tips I give to Second Life freebie hunters is to watch for announcements of free group join periods. Well, you are in luck, because for this week only, you can join the MH Unique Design group (copy and paste this provided link into the chat window of your SL browser to get a link to join the group). Normally the group costs L$200 to join.

Once you join this group, you can visit their mainstore and vacuum up oodles of free women’s fashion! They have no less than 39 free group gifts, plus several more at only L$1 each. (Some of the group gifts require you to join a different group, like SL Frees & Offers, which are also free to join.) The store also has an extensive wall of Lucky Letter boards (which do require a group membership to use). The store seems to be going through a bit or a reorganization at the moment, but you should be able to find the group gifts section and the Lucky Boards easily.

Here are just a sample of the outfits you can pick up for free at the store. Most outfits come with a HUD which offers 10 different colours to choose from. First is the Maya jumpsuit:

Next up is the Clara ballgown:

Here is the Denise cocktail dress with a shoulder ruffle:

So, hurry on down to MH Unique Designs and get some glorious free fashion for your female avatar! You do not have to spend a fortune to have a well-dressed avatar in Second Life.

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Twisted Spring Hunt

The Twisted series of hunts in Second Life are renowned for being the hardest hunts on the grid, and giving you absolutely no clues to work from, unlike other SL hunts. You’d think a spinning golden cube would be easy to find, right? Wrong. And every time around, I always land up tearing my hair out, searching for those goddamn little cubes anyways! This round has a gold-and-white divine god/goddess theme, so I diligently went hunting in a few stores, and I got lucky this time! Here are Twisted main hunt and side hunt items from three stores:

  • Appliqué Chic (a main hunt and 6 items in a side hunt)
  • Dreaming Thicket (a main hunt and 7 items in a side hunt)
  • Roped Passions (a main hunt and 5 items in a side hunt)

Our first look is the Divine gown (the Twisted Hunt gift for women by Appliqué Chic), paired with the Celestial Necklace and gold Laurel Crown by Dreaming Thicket (two side hunt gifts):

This stunning gown can be worn both for fantasy and formal outings. This avatar is wearing:

  • Mesh Head: Giselle Bento 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: Jenny Bento body by Altamura (this was a free gift from the 2017 Women Only Hunt, and on this version, you can remove the head and replace it with any other mesh head, as I did here. Note that this 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: Jessi hair from Sn@tch (free gift at a past event; no longer available)
  • Wings: white Icon angel wings by Blueberry (Bento enabled; I bought these at the Christmas 2017 Shop and Hop event using the free L$500 giftcard, which is no longer available; however, you can pick these up at the Blueberry mainstore)
  • Gown: Divine gown (main Twisted Hunt prize by Appliqué Chic)
  • Necklace: gold Celestial Necklace (side hunt prize at Dreaming Thicket)
  • Laurel: gold Laurel Crown (side hunt prize at Dreaming Thicket)
  • Shoes (not shown): white flats by Garbaggio (part of the free sample pack for Slink feet; available on the SL Marketplace). Altamura mesh avatar bodies have Slink-compatible feet.
  • Halo and hand and body particle effects: Valkyrie silver halo, aura, and hand effects by Cole’s Corner
  • Sword: from the Marcus avatar (one of the Second Life fantasy starter avatars)

Here’s a second look, featuring several more hunt gifts:

This avatar is wearing:

  • Mesh Head and Body: Giselle Bento head and Jenny body by Altamura (same as above)
  • Hair: Jessi hair from Sn@tch (same as above)
  • Headdress: Divine Warrior headdress (side hunt gift from Roped Passions)

Linden Lab Offers a Preview of the New Linden Homes in Second Life

A Street of the New Linden Homes

As part of the Second Life 2019 Home and Garden Expo, Linden Lab has put up a sim where you can get a preview of the planned upgrade to their Linden Homes (here’s the SLURL to take you there).

Last year, Premium members of Second Life had their free allotment of land doubled from 512 m² to 1,024 m², and these new Linden Homes take that into account. Furthermore, the houses’ land impact is not counted in the total number of prims you can place on these new lots. The floors and interior and exterior walls of the homes can be changed to various textures, and they all have windows with working blinds or shades, which you can open or close. The yards of the houses all have walls and hedges around them to give a bit more privacy, and the lots are landscaped with lovely trees (not the dated-looking default ones). In addition to the houses, there is also a preview of the houseboats, which come with plenty of dock space for the watercraft of your choosing:

The Linden Homes Houseboats

All in all, these are a definite step up in Linden Homes, and I am looking forward to moving into one when they are released!

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:
