Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: the Jackalope Pride Hunt (Plus Free Pridewear for Men and Women from 28LA, and Free Gifts from the SL Pride Festival!)

To celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride, Jackalope is throwing a 50% off sale, and they are also holding a Pride Hunt. The hunt items are free and you do not need to join the Jackalope store group to get the individual hunt items, which all together make up a complete rainbow outfit!

Everything Vanity Fair is wearing in the pictures below—the fishnet crop top, skirt, badges, earrings, bracelet, the wonderful combat boots with rainbow socks, even the Bento pose and the backdrop!—is a hunt prize from the Jackalope Pride Hunt.

One of the free hunt prizes is this wonderful, colourful backdrop! The collection of balloons to the left and right are separate items and you could easily reuse them for other celebrations such as birthday parties:

Now, I should caution you that many of the hunt prizes are rather fiendishly hidden all around the store (including the ceiling!). If you get frustrated, here’s a pro hunt tip from Auntie Ryan 😉 …in the Firestorm viewer, if you press Ctrl-Shift-R, it will turn on wireframe mode (which is essentially X-ray vision). Press Ctrl-Shift-R again to toggle it back off. (If this feels like cheating to you, then don’t use this tip.)

Here’s your taxi to the Jackalope store. The Pride Hunt ends on July 5th, 2020. Happy hunting!

Vanity Fair is also wearing:


This next Pridewear freebie is from a store called 28LA, and it is a doozy! Teleport to the store, and click on the rack of clothing outside, and you will receive a Pride collection of apparel, with designs for for both male and female avatars! The male clothing comes in sizes to fit Belleza Jake and Signature Gianni mesh bodies, and the female clothing is designed to fit the Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies.

The Free Pridewear Collection from 28LA

Finally, we have the Pride Festival in Second Life, which runs from June 24th to 28th. Most of the vendor booths at this event have free gifts (you will have to join the free Pride Festival group to get them). Here’s a look at three of the many gifts:

  • this colourful eye makeup from ALMA (system/Bakes on Mesh, plus Catwa, LeLutka and Omega appliers);
  • the Proud Lips by Dotty’s Secret (system/Bakes on Mesh, plus Catwa, Genus and Omega appliers);
  • and the rainbow Dora dress by Le Fil Cassé!

Happy Pride month!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Dotty’s Secret Lost Makeup Hunt

Dotty’s Secret, SL’s premiere drag queen makeup store, recently sent out an announcement to their group and on their blog:

Hello everyone!

We hope you are all safe and healthy! In these difficult times, many of us are quarantined at home, bored and worried about what the future holds… It’s the perfect time for us to spread some love, and, hopefully, entertain you a little <3 This is why we are starting a mini-hunt in our Mainstore, with 6 fabulous gifts up for grab. 

And since the good things don’t have to stop there, our group is now free to join, and with the group tag, you can enjoy a 25% discount store-wide on top of joining the family!

You are looking for six different pieces of makeup hidden all around the store. If you need help, there is a handy hunt hints panel located at the top of the stairs:

Miss Drag (my drag queen avatar, complete styling credits here) will now model three of the hunt prizes. This is the Sass makeup set, which includes the eyelashes you see here:

Next up we have two hunt prizes: the Drag 101 eyeshadow and eyebrows set, combined with the Decadence lipstick, which comes in four different shades. Both would work well for non-drag use, too!

And, best of all, you can join the Dotty’s Secret group for free, and pick up eight fabulous gifts from their group gift wall!

This is just one of the free group gifts, the Miss Pride makeup set:

This is a fun hunt! I was howling with laughter at some of the chat messages I got when I clicked on some items scattered all over that were not the hunt prizes!

Here’s the SLURL to the Dotty’s Secret store. Happy hunting! The hunt runs until May 6th, 2020.

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: The Peace on Earth Hunt

The 12th annual Peace on Earth Hunt runs from Dec. 1st to 31st, 2019. The hunt prizes are completely free, and you do not have to join any group to participate. You are looking for tiny spheres that look like our planet Earth.

Here is just a sample of the hunt prizes available. First we have a winter hoodie from Mara’s Mysteries, which comes in both male and female sizes, with a 10-colour HUD:

Next is the POE hunt prize from AlaFolie, a lovely multicolour hippie skirt and floral top:

Finally, there is the hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs, a rich red ballgown with a snowflake detail on the waist:

There are 70 stores taking part in the Peace on Earth Hunt. Here is a list of the hunt hints to help you find these and many other treasures! Happy hunting!

UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Polar Bear Hunt at Scandalize, Beyond, and LSR Moda

From now until Nov. 30th, 2019, there is a polar bear hunt at three stores in Second Life, which requires you to join each store group (for free) to pick up the hunt prizes:

  • Scandalize
  • Beyond
  • LSR Moda

As Scandalize normally charges you L$100 to join their group (and I assume the other groups do as well), this is your golden opportunity to join for free, and pick up lots of free gifts!

Here are just a few of the dozens of polar bear hunt prizes from Scandalize. This is the Sherry top and skirt in white:

Here is the Deryne top matched with the Dexi leggings with built-in heels:

Next up is the Amberle dress in purple:

Vanity looks sharp in this peppy pink Kya romper!

The Amande set in aqua consists of a top and matching skirt and belt:

Here Vanity is wearing the Aurora top and shorts in gold:

The Caiti jumpsuit features bare shoulders and extensive lacing:

Here are the Lydia top and shorts in pink:

The Anashara outfit in aqua consists of a jumpsuit with a separate chain belt, and a matching jacket:

Now this is the Erikeha outfit, consisting of three separate pieces: top, shorts, and tied shirt:

The Christy romper in orange has lovely lace detailing:

Here I pair two hunt prizes: the Kleine lilac top and the matching Kleine ruffled skirt:

Here Vanity models the Senuna leggings and top in green:

And finally we have the Scarlett gown in black (which also comes in a shiny version and the ombre version shown here):

And keep in mind that this is just one of the three participating stores! So get out there, join those store groups while they are free, and look for the polar bears; they are all quite easy to find! (Note that the polar bears in the LSR Moda store are smaller and harder to find.)

Don’t forget, after you join the Scandalize group, to pick up all the group gifts on their group gift wall! Scandalize has the biggest selection of group gifts of any store on the grid, so be sure and take advantage of their generosity! Remember, the hunt ends tomorrow, Nov. 30th!
