Second Life Steals, Deals and Freebies: Free Autumn Boots from Baby Monkey

One of my favourite things to do when I am feeling tired, depressed, and stressed out—still, after all these years!—is to open up Firestorm and go randomly exploring in Second Life. I almost always find something to surprise and delight me, and to take my mind off my real life troubles.

Today, I loaded up one of my alts (very aptly named Autumn Winter!) and I did a search under Places for “autumn”. I discovered this masterfully landscaped autumn morning forest, on a sim called Angelhaven, with many meandering trails under red and golden leaves:

Angelhaven Autumn Forest (near the landing point)

Near the shoreline is a lovely rustic pub with a balcony overlooking the sea. The new age music stream was so soothing that I immediately began to relax and unwind!

Autumn Winter 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 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.
  • Dress and Leather Jacket: Calixta outfit from Gaall (I picked this outfit up for free when the store had a free gift card offer recently; unfortunately that offer is now over)
  • Boots: Paola boots with fall leaves pattern (a brand new Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Baby Monkey; the group is free to join)
  • Hair: Hurrah hair by Ade (a free gift from the recently concluded 2019 Hair Fair)

TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: Only L$50 (the cost to join the Altamura group)

All pictures were taken at Angelhaven Autumn Morning Wood.

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Hair Fair 2019 Freebies and Dollarbies

Is your avatar in need of a new hairdo, but low on Linden dollars? Fear not, the annual Second Life Hair Fair has arrived! This year’s Hair Fair just opened today and runs until Sept. 1st, 2019, and Vanity Fair has braved the crowds and lag to pick up all the gifts to show you. All are either freebies or dollarbies!

First up is my favourite hairstyle from the Hair Fair, called Hurrah by Ade, which comes in a fatpack of colours (there’s also a free pair of sunglasses you can pick up):

Short, simple, perfect!

Next up is Castle by EscalateD, which comes in a rainbow multicolour pack:

Not exactly to my taste, but you might like it!

Now we have No Penny by no.match Hair, where you get one HUD with a fatpack of colours and a second HUD to change the texture on the hairband:

And here is Jay by EMO-tions, a beaded braided hairstyle which comes with a monotone HUD in various shades of white, grey, and black:

You might prefer this soft, romantic hairstyle by Astrology called Pearl, which comes in a full fatpack of colours:

This is different: an animated hairstyle called GoodyHair by {red} Mint which just comes in this one colour combination:

Here we have Easton by KoKoLoRes, which comes in a fatpack of colours:

This one is called Midnight by Mello & Moth, which also comes in a fatpack of colours:

Tameless has this hairstyle called Wendy, which comes in a fatpack of colours:

The long, wispy Safire hairstyle by Sintiklia comes with a “colours and pastels roots” fatpack, which is not really my thing, so I just tinted the default white hair using the included tinter HUD:

Vera is a nice, casual short hairstyle by Exile. Again, it comes in a fatpack of colours:

Tram, which always has such fun and interesting styles, is offering Hagiiro in two colours: pink (shown) and lilac.

And finally (whew!), we have Anyalia by enVOGUE, which comes in various bright colours (one HUD darker shades, one HUD lighter shades). Here I picked a vibrant shade of red from the darker HUD:

The Hair Fair is always a popular event, so you might just want to wait until later in August or Sept. 1st to pay a visit. As you can see, there are some lovely gifts this year—and lots of hair colour fatpacks, which is lovely to see! Thank you to all the vendors who put out such especially nice gifts this year! Last year’s Hair Fair were gifts were, uhmmm, let’s just say they were a rather mixed bag and leave it at that

If you want a completely different presentation of the Hair Fair gifts, Roodvosje Rosse of the blog GO DUTCH has pictures showing you several of the colour options for most of the hairstyles for both men and women (including a few I didn’t show you in this blogpost).

Vanity Fair is also wearing:

By the way, the cute children’s cereal box top I am wearing in all these pictures is a free gift from Gato. Just click on the store’s subscriber box near the entrance, and it will be delivered automatically to your inventory! It comes in one size, for Maitreya Lara mesh bodies only (which means it should also work for Altamura mesh bodies as well).

Happy shopping!
