The Sansar Store has reached an important milestone today: the 10,000th item has just been listed for sale!
What is the 10,000th item? Snow has figured out a neat trick to make your avatar body invisible, and so he decided to put it up in the store as a free item. Snow explains:
Here’s a short video by Snow showing an application of this technique:
As you can see, it has all kinds of applications!
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!
I’ve done a little shopping in the Sansar Store, and I wanted to show you nine free or cheap tops for men. You don’t have to spend a lot of Sansar dollars to look stylish in-world! Here’s what I’ve found, with links to each item in the Store.
Remember: when you first put on a garment designed using Marvelous Designer, always press the Simulate Cloth button to make the clothing fit properly on your avatar’s body. You may also have to do a little tugging here and there, for example, to make sure that the hem of your shirt does not interpenetrate with the pants, or to ensure that the buttons on the shirt underneath your sweater don’t poke through. A few tugs with the mouse in the right places, and you’re done!
First up is this Tuxedo shirt from Agustine, which is free!
Next is this free green Southwestern Poncho, also by Agustine.
This is Merry Christmas/Happy New Years sweater by Idrid, also free.
This Peace T-shirt by Agustine is also free.
What’s Christmas without an Ugly Christmas Sweater? This one is by Idrid and it is free.
Here’s a sweater vest which I am wearing over a shirt. You will have to make sure you tug on the sweater a bit to make sure that it covers the buttons on the shirt underneath it! This so-called Men’s Ugly Christmas Sweater is also by Idrid and it’s free!
Whystler has put this Hip and Casual Tunic up on the Sansar Store for only S$5.
Here is the Starry Eyes T-Shirt by Agustine, also free.
And finally, we have the Lightning T-Shirt, also by Agustine (he has been busy!)
Well, the Sansar Store is starting to fill up with clothing already! Just go to the Sansar Store webpage, select Wearables from the Explore drop-down menu, et voilà!
I tried on three inexpensive or free dresses, and at first I was dismayed when all three had parts of my body and/or underwear showing through them when I previewed them in the Lookbook avatar preview:
It turns out that, when you put on a Marvelous Designer-created garment from your inventory, you must press the Cloth Simulation button in order for it to fit properly without any body parts peeking through. Nyx from Linden Lab had this to say about it:
Anything with the MD logo, please do simulate it, and feel free as a customer to pull at it to help it to lay outside the body where you want it to lay.
You can use it to drape an MD item over a rigged mesh item to make sure that they don’t interpenetrate with each other.
So here are my three inexpensive dresses:
First up is a freebie by Sala Loon, called the Simple Dress:
Next up is a S$5 skirt and matching top ensemble with a camouflage pattern, called the SportKraft Outfit, by Kokoia:
And finally we have my favourite, the Hip and Casual Green Tunic by Whystler. It is also S$5.

Pssst…. looking for some freebies to furnish your Sansar experience?
I discovered a secret link that sorts all the items in the Sansar Store in ascending order by price. Which means that all the freebies are front and centre for you to snap up!
(Don’t thank me, it’s all a public service, etc.)
