UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Suna Designs

If you go to the Suna Designs store (SLURL) and join their group for free, you can pick up a free gift card worth L$500, good for anything in the store:

So, armed with the gift card, I went upstairs and spent it on two different colours of the beautiful Mia ballgown, at L$250 each. Here is the gold version:

This Mia gown comes in white, gold, silver, red, blue, and black, with silver or gold accents. It’s a stunner and best of all, it’s free!

UPDATE Jan. 20th, 2020: I checked this morning and the gift card offer is already gone! It was apparently just for the weekend. Sorry!

UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Le Fashion Whore

Le Fashion Whore should become a regular stop for freebie fashionistas!

You can join their store group for free, which allows you to win some lovely items of clothing from their 18 lucky boards. The letters turn over relatively quickly, and there is usually a small crowd gathered, so your chances of picking up something for free, without waiting a long time, are pretty good:

They also have a group gifts wall:

But the main reason I am telling you about Le Fashion Whore is that, if you act quickly, you can pick up not one, but two gift cards for the store!

I already wrote about the very generous L$1,000 gift card you can pick up as a free group gift until the end of January:

But, if you come down to the store today or tomorrow only, and click on the gift box at the birthday display next to the group gifts wall, you can pick up a second gift card worth L$1,990!

In a message posted on Saturday to her store group, the proprietor LeeLee says:

Hey Fashionistas!

It’s my 30th Birthday tomorrow!! OMG!

I am being showered with love and I want to show my Fashionistas some!

For today, tomorrow & Monday ONLY you can get a gift card loaded with 1990L (My birth year!)

Remember to wear your group tags and as before it is one card per avatar!!

Enjoy my birthday LOL!

Peace&&Love
Lee Lee

So, you get a total of L$2,990 in store credit to buy any merchandise in the store! Between the two gift cards, I picked up thirteen fatpacks of dresses, gowns, shirts, sweaters, and jumpsuits for absolutely free! The gift cards even work on the items on the sale wall, opposite the lucky boards.

Drop whatever you are doing and GET. DOWN. HERE. NOW!!! Here’s the SLURL to Le Fashion Whore.

UPDATE Jan. 20th, 2020: Well, LeeLee is learning why you shouldn’t give away L$2,990 in free store credit all at once! The sim where her store is located has been like this all day (and the highest was 81 avatars at one point!):

So, you can expect it to be crazy like this for the rest of the day, too. The sim has now been reset several times today, and LeeLee posted:

Due to the overload and people not listening we’ve shut the parcel down until Caspervend has a chance to breathe

The Store will be up again ASAP!

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience

Fabulous Freebies for Female Avatars from the Sinespace Shop

This blogpost is sponsored by Sinespace, and was written in my new role as an embedded reporter for this virtual world (more details here).


It will come as no surprise to you that I have brought Vanity Fair, former Second Life supermodel, over to Sinespace. And with the free items of clothing I will show you, she now has an excellent starter wardrobe, without spending a single penny!

First, we’re going to talk about the quickest way to find those fabulous freebies in the online Sinespace Shop. Simply click on the Shop button in the row of blue buttons along the bottom of your Sinespace client. Then, click on the tab that says Clothes. Finally, click on the word Gold in the blue bar across the top of the listings, and if the arrow next to it is pointing down, click on that arrow once so that it points up. In three easy steps, you now have a list of items sorted by price from lowest to highest. (This technique also works if you click on Silver instead of Gold.)

If you are wondering about the difference between the Gold and Silver currencies used in Sinespace, there is a helpful explanation on their wiki:

Gold

Gold credits can only be purchased for real money by spending users and can be converted back to real money by Sine Wave virtual goods partners.

Gold credits trade at 100 / 1 fixed ratio with U.S. dollars.

Silver

Silver credits are free promotional credits given to users as rewards for participating in the community.

Silver credits cannot be converted to real money but can be used by creators to promote their content to new platform users who have not yet purchased gold.

Pricing strategies

You can set each item you want to sell to gold only, silver only or any combination of the two.

As a guiding principal we would recommend making most of your inventory gold only but offering a few items for silver as well, perhaps 10% of total inventory, to help promote your goods to a wider audience and to give the platform a richer pool of content for new users to explore before they buy gold.

All new avatars in Sinespace start off with 30,000 Silver to help them outfit, style, and equip their avatars.

Did you know that exploring the many worlds that make up Sinespace pays off? Hidden in various places are gift boxes like the one shown below. Click in them, and you will receive a gift of Silver to spend as you like on the Sinespace Shop! So go, and start exploring 😉 …

Please note that in addition to shopping within the Sinespace client, you can also shop using the Sinespace Shop website. All links below lead to item listings on the website, and you can also buy them there. (You can’t use the technique above to sort the store listings on the website, though.)


Here are some of the free outfits! First up is a casual outfit by Tesoromio, consisting of two separate pieces, shiny capri pants and a matching floral top in three different colours: green, sky blue, and purple.

Next, we have the playful, colourful Candy catsuit by B. Rene Gade:

I also wanted to show you a couple more free tops. This is the blue bandeau top from Monks:

And this is the grey female T-shirt by Kozii, with their logo:

All of these items are free! In all these pictures, Vanity Fair is also wearing:

  • the Long Wavy Hair Brown (by Sine Wave; costs 6 Gold or 500 Silver)
  • the Ava skin in Peach (free from the Sinespace Shop; comes in six different skin tones as shown below)
  • the Female Brown Eyes (free from the Sinespace Shop)
  • Flip Flop shoes (part of your free starter wardrobe)
Six different skintones of the Ava skin are free from the Sinespace Shop

Happy shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: There Have Been Major Changes at the Free Dove!

I discovered today (while visiting The Free Dove looking for outfits and shoes to wear on the latest freebie version of the eBody Classic mesh avatar body) that the proprietor, Palomma Casanova, has made some significant changes to the layout of the venerable Second Life freebie store!

Here is a quick summary of the changes:

  • Almost all of the old freebies have been replaced with brand new items! And all the new items are modern, mesh clothing and footwear (there are no system-layers-and-flexiprims outfits to be found, with the exception of one ballgown I did find);
  • Instead of grouping items strictly by category (menswear, womenswear, jewelry, etc.), there are now many smaller tables with freebies from a single store/brand, both men’s and women’s items shown together;
  • The number of men’s freebies has increased, but you will now have to wander throughout the whole freebie store to find them all;
  • There appears to be slightly fewer free jewelry gifts than before, and definitely fewer freebie hairstyle options to choose from (but it’s still the single best collection of free hair at any SL freebie store on the grid);
  • And the lag is still absolutely terrible 😉 …so be forewarned!

For example, here is one table of free items by KingBal, both men’s and women’s freebies (including a very nice pair of hiking boots in sizes to fit various men’s mesh bodies):

This display of women’s freebies by AvaGirl includes clothes, shoes, and jewelry:

Vanity Fair paid a visit today, and here are just a couple of the outfits she was able to put together:

This schoolgirl outfit consists of three separate pieces:

  • the Emily plaid schoolgirl dress by Poème;
  • the Alice shoes with ruffled socks by Paper Sparrow; and
  • the Rina braided hair and hat combo by Lara AC.

Here we have:

  • the silver Melody ballgown by LUXE; with
  • the Lacrecia updo hairstyle by Firelight Hair (comes with a HUD with three different shades of brown).

So if you have not been to The Free Dove in a while, now would be a great time to come down, browse the new merchandise (all still free, of course!), and snap up some fabulous, fashionable outfits for yourself.
