Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: NO CABIDE and Suna Design

In just two stops, you can pick up no less than 22 free outfits! Now that’s what I call really efficient freebie shopping 😉

The first stop is the NO CABIDE affiliate store on the Boulevard Illuminati. Just click on the box on the front counter to receive 12 free outfits! There’s no need to join any group.

The second stop is the Suna Design store, where you can pick up one gift at the front entrance, and another nine gift boxes behind the staircase (you will have to join the Suna Design group for free in order to get these free group gifts):

So, let’s take a look at some of the items in our haul. First up is the beautiful white-and-gold Ariel full-length ballgown from Suna Design, which features an attractive golden butterfly cut-out design on the back:

(The jewelry used here is the Arthurina gold pearl earrings and necklace, one of last year’s Advent calendar gifts from JUMO.)

Another Suna Design gift is the Nora dress, which includes the pumps:

A third gift from Suna Design is this daring Diana outfit, which includes the open jacket, jeans and boots. (Personally, I would probably wear this with an applier-based top of some kind under the jacket.)

Here is the Happy outfit by NO CABIDE, which includes the shoes. The outfit comes with a HUD to individually change the colour of the top, miniskirt and shoes to red, black, or white:

The graffiti-adorned Izzie Outfit by NO CABIDE includes the funky high-heeled sneakers:

And finally, we have the No CABIDE Jayne dress, which comes with a HUD to select 10 different colours and patterns for the dress, and 10 different colours for the straps:

This avatar is also wearing:

  • Mesh Head, Makeup and Mesh Body: Juliet by Altamura (former Valentine’s Day group gift; Omega compatible with the separate Omega system kit)
  • Omega Skin Applier: Flower by 7 Deadly S[k]ins (a box of Omega skin appliers was the June group gift)
  • Hair: Aria hair by D!va (free group gift; group is free to join)

Happy shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: UniHispana Crea

I’ve already written about what I think are the four best freebie stores in Second Life:

  • The Free Dove
  • The excellent freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil
  • The Free*Style Store
  • The Sexy Shoppers Freebie Market

But I neglected to mention a small but growing collection of freebies at UniHispana Crea, a Spanish-speaking hub for newcomers to SL.

At this SLURL, you can pick up the Altamura Max full-body mesh male avatar and the Altamura Emanuelle full-body mesh female avatar for free:

And, in addition, there is an large assortment of clothing specifically designed for Altamura female mesh bodies nearby, courtesy of Casual Collection by C&N. It can be hard to find free clothes for Altamura, so this set of freebies is especially appreciated!

Here are three of examples of outfits from C&N, which include the shoes, modeled on the Altamura Emanuelle avatar (the hair is a free group gift from D!va Hair):

This is a lovely summer dress by C&N, which I have paired with the Sonnet pumps available for free from Hilly Haalan (more info here):

At this SLURL is a small collection of menswear. Here I am modeling the Axel suit and dress shoes on the Altamura Max avatar:

And here is a more casual outfit cobbled together from the two free casual outfits available, which includes both the sunglasses and the boots:

Right across from the small menswear collection are a number of freebies for women. Here I am modeling items on the Tina Bento Mesh Avatar, which is available for free from the freebie store at Ajuda SL Brasil (for more details, see the very end of this long blogpost about free and inexpensive mesh heads and bodies for female avatars). The hair is the free, tintable Zura style from Hitogata on the counter at this SLURL.

Here is a lovely backless black dress, from the front and the rear:

And here is the Amanda red minidress:

So, although it is a small collection of freebies, it is still worth popping in for a visit and a browse! Happy shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Virtue (Part II)

Back in May 2018, I blogged about a store in Second Life called Virtue. I decided it was time to revisit the store to see what’s new, and I’m really glad I did!

The proprietor, Abiela, is a devout Christian who believes that modesty does not mean being unfashionable. Her clothing is stylish, but never slutty! If you are tired of the countless stores on the grid selling nothing but skimpy, indecent clothing, Virtue is a truly refreshing change.

Just inside the entrance to the right are three free group gifts for various groups (the Third Life and MLM Frees & Offers groups are free to join, and the Mesh Avatar Appearance Maniacs group is L$50 to join):

And if you exit through the back of the main Virtue store and go into the right door of the smaller store behind it, you will find the group gifts and discount section. Abiela, the owner of Virtue, has been extremely generous with her group gifts—48 free gifts in total! (You will need to join the Virtue group to get these gifts, but joining the group is free.)

And that’s not all! Right next to the group gifts wall are some Midnight Mania, Mini-Mania, and Lucky Letter Boards for even more chances to snap up a fabulous freebie!

So let’s take a look at a few of the group gifts:

Here’s the SLURL to Virtue. Happy shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: The Freebie “F” Store

If you’re looking for some Japanese style, ranging from traditional to kawaii to edgy ultramodern, check out the Freebie “F” store. Most of the items on display are either freebies or dollarbies, but please check the price before you buy! Some items cost 20 or even 50 Linden dollars (although these are usually clearly marked). There is clothing available here for all genders of avatars, something for absolutely everyone!

I was quite taken with this oversize jacket with a Japanese kabuki mask print by Haori, which comes in eight different prints, all free:

In this picture, my drag queen avatar MissDrag is wearing:

  • Mesh Head and Body, Black Nailpolish, and Black Jeans Applier: Romeo by Altamura (Valentine’s Day group gift)
  • Jacket: Japanese print jacket by Haori (free from the Freebie “F” store)
  • Brooch: Gadot brooch by Heth Haute Couture (free group gift)
  • Mesh Feet and Shoes: black chained sandal by Ydea (free from The Free Dove at this exact SLURL; just the thing to hide those masculine feet!)
  • Hair: Lilak by FABIA (free group gift)
  • Drag Queen Makeup: Vanilla makeup set by Dotty’s Secret
