Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Scandalize (Again!)

The Scandalize group in Second Life is (once again) free to join from Sept. 15th to 17th. Why is this important news?

Because, if you join the group now, for free, you get dozens and dozens of free group gifts! Scandalize is one of the most generous stores on the grid when it comes to gifts to their group members. Usually, you have to pay L$100 to join their group, but for the next three days, it is FREE to join!

The group gifts wall is located on the wall behind the main reception desk (please note that this is an old picture; they have redesigned their store):

So hurry down! There’s also a hunt going on, find ten cherries hidden around the store for more free gifts!

UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals and Freebies: Get 789 High Quality Outfits, Jewelry, Shoes and Hair for Only L$101!

This is an update to my surprisingly popular blogpost about visiting four stores in Second Life and getting 218 items for only L$100.

So, I decided to grab a spare avatar and take it to the extreme, visiting the following six stores, each of which offers a large number of group gifts, and picking up every single one:

  • Legendaire (68 group gifts; group is free to join)
  • Scandalize (86 group gifts; group costs L$100 to join)
  • Shoenique Designs (29 group gifts; group is free to join)
  • Virtue (28 group gifts; group is free to join)
  • Coco Designs (35 group gifts; group is free to join)
  • Hilly Haalan (63 group gifts; group is free to join)

And then I hopped over to the following four freebie stores which I covered in my earlier blogpost about the best freebie stores in Second Life:

  • The Free Dove (where I picked up 152 items; you need to join the Free Dove group for free to pick up the freebies)
  • Ajuda SL Brasil (where I picked up a whopping 165 items, not counting obviously older system layer/flexiprim clothing styles)
  • Free*Style Store (12 items)
  • Sexy Shoppers Freebie Warehouse (63 items; you need to join the Sexy Shoppers group for L$1 to get the freebies here)

What did I get for visiting these 10 locations?

GRAND TOTAL: 701 items of clothing, shoes, hair and jewelry for only L$101 (L$100 for the Scandalize group join fee, and L$1 for the Sexy Shoppers group join fee)!

So, let’s take a look at some of the items we picked up in our shopping binge, shall we? (Please click on each picture to see it in a larger size.)

UPDATE 11:44 a.m.: A commenter on a cross-post of this blogpost to the Your Second Life group on Facebook told me about another store where you join the group for free, with oodles of freebies! The store is called !Soul, and here is the SLURL.

Soul Gifts 17 May 2018.png

Thank you for the tip, Susan Giroso! There are 88 group gifts here at this location!

That brings the new grand total to SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-NINE items for only L$101! 

Here’s a look at one of the outfits from !Soul, the Delicate Satin Mesh Dress in a floral pattern, with matching boots (there are seven different patterns available for this outfit).

UPDATED! Second Life Steals, Deals and Freebies: How to Get 218 Outfits, Shoes, and Jewelry for Only L$100!

UPDATE: Because of interest in this blogpost, I have done an updated version: get SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHT-NINE items for only L$101! (Yes, it’s true!)

Did you know that you can get two hundred and eighteen women’s outfits, shoes, and jewelry for your female avatar, and spend only L$100? Yes, it’s true! Today I will show you how it’s done.

First, go to the Shoenique store, join their group for free (it’s called Shoenique Designs), then go past the entrance into the middle of the store, where you will find this group gift wall with 29 gifts:

Then go over to the Legendaire store. At the main entrance, turn left and go into the door marked Group Gifts/Outlet. There you will find 64 outfits and shoes, all free group gifts when you join the free Legendaire V.I.P. group (there’s a group join sign right at the entrance). Another four of the gifts are located just inside the main entrance of the Legendaire store. (Note: make sure you join the new Legendaire V.I.P. group, not the old Legendaire group.)

Finally, hop on over to Scandalize, and join their group for L$100. Then walk around the wall behind the customer service desk out front, and behold no less than 75 free group gifts! That works out to 1.3 Linden dollars per outfit! It’s the best deal in women’s SL clothing outside of the freebie stores, in my opinion.

Then turn around and pick up some nice free jewelry on the counter opposite the group gift wall. There are another eleven gifts here (note that two of the vendors are not working):

Now I am going to show you three of the dresses I picked up. First, here’s an example of one particularly lovely group gift dress from Shoenique Designs:

Shoenique Dress 2 14 May 2018

This avatar is wearing:

Mesh Head and Lipstick: Giselle Bento head by Altamura (this was an Altamura gift from last Christmas at the eBENTO event, you had to join the Altamura group for L$50 to get it)

Mesh Body: Jenny Bento body by Altamura (this was a gift last Christmas from the Women Only Hunt)

Hair: Aria by D!va (free group gift; group is free to join; the roses are included and are colour-changeable, or can be turned off)

Eyes: Cerulean Spice eyes by Ina Centaur (hunt gift; this store is no longer in SL)

Dress: February Group Gift 1 Dress (Maitreya version) by Shoenique Designs (free group gift; group is free to join; I have found that most clothing designed for the Maitreya Lara mesh body tends to fit the Altamura mesh avatar body very well)

Shoes: Classic white pumps by Marquesse (free at the excellent freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil; this shoe comes in four colours; note that the Altamura mesh avatar body has Slink-compatible feet)

TOTAL COST FOR THIS ENTIRE AVATAR: L$50 (group join fee for Altamura)

And here’s another gorgeous group gift gown from Shoenique Designs:

This avatar is wearing:

Mesh Head: Lulu Bento mesh head by Akeruka (Over the past year, Akeruka has had four different dollarbie Bento mesh heads—two female, and two male—as group gifts for members of the [AK] Heads, News & Support group; the group join fee was L$150, so that works out to 38.5 Linden dollars per head, an amazing deal! So you might want to join this group, in case they decide to offer other dollarbie deals on Bento mesh heads.)

Mesh Body: eBody Classic avatar body (L$1 at the freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil or directly from the eBody store; note that the dollarbie version of this mesh body has only “thick” alpha sections on the HUD, not the finer alpha sections on the full-price version)

Eyes: free hazel Look Into My eyes by Exodi (store is no longer in SL)

Gown: May group gift gown by Shoenique Designs (free group gift; group is free to join)

Shoes: Classic red pumps by Marquesse (free at the freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil; this shoe comes in four colours; note that the eBody Classic mesh avatar body has Slink-compatible feet)

Hair: free Pulled Back Bun (brown) from the Library / Accessories / Hair Design Options / Pulled Back Bun folder in your SL inventory

Crown: an old hunt gift from a store that is no longer in SL

Jewelry: the Secret of Jade ruby bracelet, earrings and necklace by J&W Jewelers (freebie at the Regency Ballroom; there is also a lovely free gown by Shoenique here to pick up as well):

TOTAL COST FOR THIS ENTIRE AVATAR: L$152 (L$150 group join fee for Akeruka, L$1 for the Akeruka Lulu mesh head, L$1 for the eBody Classic mesh body)

And finally, here is one of the many dresses from Scandalize that you can pick up for your L$100 group join free:
