Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: NEWCLOVER

If you’re looking for the latest in hipster clothing for your trendy male avatar, have I got a deal for you! The back half of the NEWCLOVER store is all marked down to zero! That’s right, everything is free!

Now, the sign says the sale is only until Oct. 17th, but I was still able to pick everything up for free today, so you might want to hurry down, just in case it all ends soon. If you join the NEWCLOVER group for free (there’s a sign at the entrance), you can also pick up a nice free group gift, packed full of men’s clothing.

Here’s one hipster look I was able to put together. Everything except the sneakers is from NEWCLOVER:

This avatar is wearing:

Bento mesh head: Keiji head by Akeruka (no longer available for free). If you haven’t yet joined the Akrueka group (called [AK] Heads News & Support) for L$150, you should really consider it. If you had joined the Akeruka mesh heads group a year and a half ago, you would have picked up no less than six fully-adjustable Bento mesh heads (three female and three male), all for a single group join fee of L$150. That works out to only L$25 per Bento mesh head, a truly outstanding deal!

Bento mesh body: The free Altamura Robert avatar from the Freebie Megastore at London City (see here for more details). One advantage of this body is that you can remove the head to use another mesh head with it (as I did here).

Hat: Fedora hat in black from NEWCLOVER

Coat and sweater: Neo coat in black check from NEWCLOVER

Pants: Neo slacks in black from NEWCLOVER

Sneakers: I’m pretty sure I picked this pair up from the men’s section at the excellent freebie store on the Ajuda SL Brasil sim; I’m not sure if they are still available, though.

Total cost of this avatar: L$150 (the group join fee for Akeruka)

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Sweet E’s August Hunt at the Free Dove

Every month, The Free Dove freebie store selects three designers who place hunt items throughout the store for you to find (sometimes, the free hunt items are also found in their mainstore locations). Savvy freebie hunters already know to drop by The Free Dove once a month to pick up some fabulous hunt goodies!

One of the designers participating in the August hunt is Sweet E’s, which has some truly delightful and well-designed items available as free hunt gifts, either at The Free Dove or at the Sweet E’s store:

In both locations, you are searching for a cupcake with bright pink frosting and an “E’s” on it, which looks like this:

Vanity Fair models some of the amazing hunt gifts that Sweet E’s is offering up—everything from ballgowns to a bikini to a comfy men’s shirt and matching socks! (Please click on each picture to see it in a larger size.)

To pick up the hunt gifts at The Free Dove, you must join the Free Dove group (there is no join fee). To pick up the hunt gifts at Sweet E’s mainstore, you must join the Sweet E’s group (also free). So the total cost of all these beautiful items is zero, zilch, nada! Best of all, these items come in sizes to fit all the major mesh avatar bodies (Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, The Mesh Project, Tonic and eBody) and classic system avatars too!

Remember, you only have until the end of August to do this hunt. Happy hunting!

UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals and Freebies: All the Men’s Clothing at Kauna is FREE

Kauna 28 May 2018.png

I couldn’t believe it until I actually got into the sim to check it out for myself. (You’ll probably have to use something like the Teleport Hammer to get in, because the sim is currently jam-packed with avatars picking up all the freebies!)

Kauna menswear store (Flickr photo group) is currently GIVING AWAY ALL THEIR CLOTHING AND SHOES FOR FREE. Yes, that’s right, FREE! We’re talking suits, shirts, vests, sweaters, jackets, socks, shoes and boots, tuxedos and smoking jackets and military tunics, glasses, even beards and moustaches, all mesh, all free. There are both modern and retro styles. There’s even a set of Harry Potter Hogwarts ties and a designer zombie suit!! Everything in the store is free, zilch, zippo, nada, just waiting for you to come in and vacuum it all up!

I should warn you ahead of time that all the mesh clothing comes in three standard sizes (small, medium, and large), and it is not designed specifically for popular male mesh avatar bodies like Signature Gianni or Belleza Jake.

So drop whatever you’re doing and get over here, because I don’t know how long this giveaway is going to last. You’ll have to do your shopping in-world, as Kauna does not have most of these good-quality men’s items on their SL Marketplace store.

I am loading up the inventories of all my male alts when there’s this big a deal, and I would encourage you to do the same!

UPDATE 6:27 p.m.: In unpacking some of the suits, I have discovered that they do have versions for Slink and The Mesh Project male mesh avatar bodies. So not everything is just in small, medium, and large standard sizes. And the moustaches and beards (which comes in four different styles) are designed specifically to fit the Stanley and Daniel models of Catwa heads.

Here is one of my male alts, wearing the men’s casual suit in black, with black Oxford shoes. The shirt comes in open and closed collar versions, each in tucked and untucked versions. The outfit even comes with black socks! I’m very impressed with the quality of the clothing.

UPDATE May 29th: Well, the huge sale at Kauna has now made the news at both the NessMarket.com blog and the FabFree blog, so you can expect things to continue to be extremely busy at that particular sim! FabFree reports that Kauna is closing and the giveaway is only until the end of this month, so hurry down before it’s all gone!

UPDATE June 1st: Well, apparently the Kauna store is still open after May 31st! I have no idea how long the sale will last though, so you should get down here as soon as you can. A commenter named Kathryn Vayandar, who appears to be a representative for the store, said the following in a comment on the FabFree blogpost:

Thanks for the mention on your blog! 🙂 When I mentioned closing, I was just referring to the special sale, not the store. The special prices are for a very short time only. As far as I know, the store is not closing.

Outfit Outlay: Strawberry Singh Blogs (and Vlogs) the Sansar Store Freebies

Strawberry Singh has blogged (and created the following YouTube video) about the many clothing freebies already available on the Sansar Store (this last link will take you directly to the Wearables section of the Sansar Store, and sort everything there in ascending order by price, with the freebies first).

She also mentions today’s special Scavenger Hunt edition of the weekly Atlas Hopping livestream event she co-hosts with Drax. I plan to attend; hope to see you there!

Strawberry also very kindly mentions both this blog and my store on the Sansar Store, where I do have some free avatar clothing items available. Thanks, Strawberry!
