Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Free Ciara Bakes-on-Mesh Female Bento Mesh Head from Dream

There’s a new Stay at Home Club promotional event taking place in stores located across the Second Life grid, with special free gifts for those of us who are stuck at home during the pandemic.

Among those deals is a completely free, Bakes-in-Mesh-compatible, fully-adjustable female Bento mesh had called Ciara, from a store called Dream (here’s the SLURL):

Just click the panel, and Ciara is yours! Here is what she looks like using one of the Elvira Bakes-on-Mesh skins I picked up from the Christmas tree at 7 Deadly Skins last December:

I had to tinker a bit with the default shape that comes with it to make the eyes a bit less sleepy-looking, but it’s a lovely head and you certainly can’t beat the price: free!

Happy shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: L$300 Free Store Credit from Gaall, Vaxer, Sweet Temptations, and Chic & Shoes

We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming…”  If you are looking for my blogposts about SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, please click here. I have returned to the original purpose of this blog—covering “news and views on social VR, virtual worlds, and the metaverse”.


Yesterday I received a message from Moonshine Allerhand, the co-owner and designer for four different Second Life stores:

Hey!

We know most of you will stay at home, so I want to gift all my loyal subscribers with L$300 store credit. You can choose your favorite store (Gaall, Vaxer, Sweet Temptations or Chic & Shoes).

You can get the credit only once (March 21-25th) and it will be available for you to use until the end of the month (March 31st).

Here are the landmarks of the stores:
Gaall
Vaxer
Sweet Temptations
Chic & Shoes

At each store, there is a large sign advertising the free credit:

Just click on the sign, and on the blue pop-up window that appears, select which one of the four stores for which you want the L$300 credit:

(You might want to visit each of the four store using the SLURLs posted above before you click the Free Credit sign and choose the store; each store has different merchandise.)

Once you have received your credit, just click on the vendor for the item you want (in this example, the Edna sweater and skirt set from Sweet Temptations), In the blue pop-up window, click on the Store Credit button:

You will then be asked to confirm that you want to use your allocated store credit, and the item is delivered to you!

The Edna sweater and skirt set from Sweet Temptations comes in a size specifically to fit Altamura mesh bodies (which this avatar is wearing), as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and Tonic mesh bodies. The included HUD gives you ten colour and pattern options.

Free fashion feels good! Happy shopping!

UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Free Face Masks and Toilet Paper!

I got an insider tip on a very timely accessory for your Second Life avatar: a face mask! (I still need to hunt down surgical gloves, eye protection, and hazmat suits, but it’s a good start.)

Teleport to MALified (here’s the exact SLURL); you do not need to join any group to pick up this freebie, just click the panel:

The mask comes in seven different colours: black, blue, cyan, pink, red, violet, and white. They are completely adjustable to fit any avatar. Here’s a close-up look at the white one:

You can also pick up these masks on the SL Marketplace for free. Some people are actually charging L$180 or even L$200 for face masks, so this is a real bargain! And best of all, unlike the real world, there are zero limits to supplies.

UPDATE March 21st, 2020: Salt and Pepper have a new free gift available, something that is much in demand in the real world: free toiler paper! Just click the panel in the store (here’s the exact SLURL). You do not need to join any group to pick up all the virtual toilet paper that you will ever need!

UPDATE March 27th, 2020: Sau Motorcycles is offering a complete package of pandemic supplies, including masks (decoration and werable versions), boxes and rolls of toilet paper, even a toilet paper thrower! Just pay the vendor display one Linden dollar and it will be automatically refunded. Here’s the SLURL to the store.

The sign says:

Free COVID-19 Supply Kit: toilet paper, N95 masks included. Decoration, throwable, attachment…everything you need to get a little fun in this hard time. Hope you enjoy this and please share with your friends. We are never out of supply!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: The Atenea Female Mesh Body from LUCYBODY

We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming…”  If you are looking for my blogposts about SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, please click here. I have returned to the original purpose of this blog—covering “news and views on social VR, virtual worlds, and the metaverse”.


Back in 2018, LUCYBODY offered a Midnight Madness prize of a female mesh body called Afrodite. Well, they have now decided to do it again! This time, you can get the Atenea mesh female body as your gift.

Just teleport into the LUCYBODY store (here’s the exact SLURL) and hit the Midnight Madness board here (this time around, you don’t even need to join their store group!):

The same as last time, instead of locking down for the day when the Midnight Madness board reaches its target, it just resets the counter for the next group! (The prize is not delivered until midnight SLT, though, so you will have to be patient and wait until tomorrow to receive it.)

In the pictures below, I have paired the Atenea body by LUCYBODY with the free Maya static (non-Bento) mesh head available from the gift room at Altamura. The pink minidress shown comes in the package with the Atenea mesh body!

Here’s what the HUD that comes with the Atenea body looks like:

As you can see, you have a good selection of alpha cuts available, so you can wear just about anything with this body and make it work. You can choose from 14 different base skin tones, which you can further adjust with 16 different skin tints, which gives you a staggering 224 possible skin colours! Under the Nails tab, you can select from 24 different nail colours and patterns, and seven different nail lengths. The feet are Slink-compatible and come in three heights: high, mid, and flat (here I am wearing the Sonnet suede pumps, a free group gift from Hilly Haalan). The hands work with Bento animations.

This is a wonderful, fully-featured, fully-adjustable Bento female mesh body that compares quite favourably to brand names that cost thousands of Linden dollars, for free! So head on down to LUCYBODY to hit their Midnight Madness board, and wait until after midnight Second Life Time to receive this lovely Atenea body as a gift.

I will be adding this as one of the many options in my popular, constantly-updated list of free and inexpensive mesh heads and bodies for female avatars.
