If you want even more news about fabulous freebies and bargains in Second Life than what I write about in this blog, may I recommend the Second Life group I maintain, called the RyanSchultz.com Steals, Deals & Freebies group? The group costs only L$50 to join; more information here.
If you have a LeLutka Evo X or an Akeruka ADVX female mesh head on your avatar, then do I have a sweet deal for you! Join the Nuve group (it’s currently free, for a limited time), and slap the vendor panels under the VIP Gifts sign to pick up a fatpack of Hailey skin, plus a fatpack of Hailey eyebrows, and a fatpack of lipsticks!
Nuve skins include both the head and body skin, in 15 different skintones, each in versions with and without the eyebrows (there’s also a box in the folder to unpack to get the matching ear skins). The Hailey eyebrow fatpack includes tintable eyebrows in six colours (white, blonde, ginger, red, brown, and black) to use with the browless version of the Hailey skin. The Hailey lip tint fatpack includes 16 shades of pink and red, plus two shades of grey, which you can tint any colour you wish!
But wait, there’s more! MUCH more! On the wall behind the front counter of the Nuve store are all the previous group gifts, which include human and fantasy skins for Catwa HDPRO, Genus, LeLutka Evolution classic, and LeLutka Evo X heads, plus eyebrows, eye shadows, eyeliners, and lipsticks. Among these gifts is the Amanda skin, which like the Hailey skin is a complete fatpack with 15 different skintones!
Please note that, according to the Nuve group notices, there is a notice dated Sept. 10th, 2022:
Our VIP group will be free for 3 days only. So if you have friends on a budget, spread the word.
So, hurry down, join the Nuve group while it is still free, and snap up the fabulous freebies! Also, in an earlier group notice, I learned that the store is giving away free weekly store credit:
Y’all keep forgetting to click the reward terminal! So, this is just a reminder. Reward terminal is at the reception desk (tablet on the desk). You can receive L$75 of store credit every week. Terminal resets every Monday.
Store credit accumulates, you won’t lose it. It can be used on every product at [the] mainstore, except products released exclusively in weekend sales.
Here’s where you can find that VIP reward terminal in the store, right next to an assortment of free gifts for everybody who drops by (no group join is required; they are mostly skin tints and Windlight/EEP settings):
This is what the Hailey skin looks like (this avatar is wearing the ivory skin tone, with the blonde Hailey eyebrows and one of the redder Hailey lip tints).
Looking this stunning for zero Linden dollars? Sign me up, honey!
Other styling credits:
- Head and Eyes: This avatar is wearing the Lilly LeLutka mesh head, which I picked up for free in December 2020 when it was being offered as a Christmas gift. (LeLutka also offered a gift of both male and female Bento heads last Christmas, so keep your eyes peeled and fingers crossed for another very generous gift this December!)
- Body: She is also wearing the LUCYBODY Atenea mesh body, which is a free Midnight Madness gift (you will have to pick up a L$250 Bakes on Mesh applier kit to use BoM skins like Hailey with it, however). The Atenea body is completely compatible with clothing designed for Maitreya Lara, except for footwear; the feet are Slink-compatible. You do not need to shell out for a L$2,750 Maitreya Lara body to wear Maitreya Lara clothing!
- Hair: The Gwyn hair is a freebie from Firelight Hair at the Firestorm 12th anniversary celebrations, along with many other free gifts, but only for a limited time. Hurry down!
- Outfit: This Cleo top and skirt were a free group gift from the Luna Chelsea store, but I just checked, and it is unfortunately no longer available. The Luna Chelsea group is free to join, and there are several other group gifts of female clothing available, though, as well as many Lucky Chairs and Midnight Madness boards (exact SLURL).
TOTAL COST FOR THIS ENTIRE AVATAR LOOK: Only L$250 (for the Atenea Bakes on Mesh kit, but I’m pretty sure I bought it for L$197 back in the day).
So, as you can see, joining the Nuve store group is a no-brainer! The proprietor is very smart to find a way to get potential customers coming into her store every week. And I will definitely join store groups where they give out free credit to group members every week or every month!
Happy freebie shopping! 😉
