Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Free Medieval, Historical, and Fantasy Outfits for Men and Women from TS Creations and Eleran’s Crafts

Work has been hectic lately, and to relax in the evenings, I have been busy styling my small army of Second Life alts, using some wonderful free medieval armour and fantasy outfits I picked up in my travels across the grid, from a couple of stores that were new to me.

TS Creations has two free group gifts of complete fantasy outfits (the store group is free to join)—one for male avatars and the other for the female avatars:

The Battle Legionnaire outfit includes everything you see here, plus a battle axe (it is sized for Signature and Aesthetic mesh bodies, but it should work for just about any male mesh body if you use your alpha HUD to erase any body parts which happen to poke through):

The women’s outfit is this wonderful Royal Duelist costume in red and black (Maitreya Lara size only). The details are magnificent!

But wait, there’s more! Teleport over to Eleran’s Crafts, where they are celebrating their tenth anniversary with a whole room stuffed with dozens of fantasy and medieval outfits for free! (The store group is also free to join, just click on the Join Group sign in-store.)

There are fantasy outfits for male and female avatars, as well as for Kemono avatars! All outfits include accessories, including boots, gloves (Bento in some cases), helmets, and weapons. Note that almost all of these outfits will work for just about any mesh avatar, since most components are adjustable/resizable attachments, and you will be alpha’ing out most of the mesh body underneath using your body’s HUD, anyway.

First up is this black Abyss Watcher outfit for men:

This wonderful Lady Maria costume is perfect for gallivanting around your next historical roleplay sim! Everything you see is included, plus a knife, a single-edged sword, and a double-edged sword (this lady knows how to protect herself!).

Next is this incredibly detailed Abyss Walker knight’s armour in black (it also comes in red, blue and white versions):

This is the Celestial Knight armour in white and gold; the outfit includes wings, which are not shown here. (It also comes in blue and black versions; I swapped out the included boots for a medieval pair I picked up from the Dreamcatcher store.)

The Lady Farangis outfit includes glowing wings which open and flap when you fly! It comes in red, orange, blue and purple versions.

The copper Knight of Elmandria outfit is perfect for historical roleplay (the sword is included; comes in copper as shown, plus silver, white, black, red, and blue versions):

Looking for some women’s armour? Look no further than this Aurora outfit! This detailed armour comes in silver, copper, green, and blue chrome versions.

This Faraam outfit for men is something straight out of Game of Thrones! In addition to the blue shown, it comes in black, white, green, and red:

This Celestial Mage outfit in green includes the glowing staff! (I swapped out the boots with a less ornate pair from the Hilly Haalan freebie store.) It comes in black, blue, copper, green, purple, red, and white.

This is just a small but representative selection from Eleran’s Crafts; there are many, many more to choose from. I don’t know how long these fabulous freebies will be available, so if you’re interested, hurry on down!

Happy freebie shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Gorean Goodies

I have never really understood why Second Life is home to so many Gorean roleplay sims, which are based on the series of science-fiction novels by John Norman. I personally find the sexual philosophy of the books to be repulsive, but they’re obviously popular in Second Life. There are dozens and dozens of Gorean sims, full of people roleplaying scenes from the Norman novels in endless variations.

Show up at a Gorean roleplay sim in regular streetwear and you’ll stick out like a sore thumb (and most likely, get asked to leave for messing up the atmosphere). Gorean clothing consists of two completely separate styles:

  1. Freemen or freewomen, who dress in medieval-era wear, with women wearing long skirts, often with a hijab and a veil;
  2. Kajira/Kajirus clothing (basically slavewear or skimpy dancing silks for women and men).

So, if that’s what you are looking for, hey, you’re in luck! (Trust me, you’re not going to find anything in-between those two extremes in Gorean sims.) The Gorean freemen/freewomen outfits can also easily be repurposed for medieval/fantasy roleplay. The freewomen’s outfits could also be used for conservative Muslim women’s wear, especially the headscarves and veils.

There are four Gorean sites I recommend you visit for some great freebies. All four spots are in the OOC (Out Of Character) welcoming areas of the sims, where you can dress as you like without being bothered by others.

City of Tor

At the City of Tor there are free outfits for men and women, including a very nice full gown with puffed sleeves which includes a 34-colour HUD:

The veil in the picture above comes from a separate outfit from the freebie outfits at Svago (see below), and it fits so snugly that you don’t need to worry about adding any hair underneath. The animated particle staff my avatar is holding is the Star of Stars staff from Talevin’s Magic Sky Village, the best place to get staves and wands on the entire grid! You can change the colour of the particle effects to one of ten different colours. You could say that here I was going for a medieval sorceress look with a Handmaid’s Tale edge 😉 Hey, it’s Second Life! Be who you want!

Here’s what the freemen’s outfit looks like (it includes the boots, and the tunic comes in four different colours). It’s very detailed and quite attractive for medieval/fantasy roleplay:

Svago

From the spawn point, turn right and touch the green door to go to the Gorean Welcome Centre. Then turn around and walk through the three sets of arches to find an extensive collection of free clothing for men and women:

In the following picture I am wearing Style 2 of the Gorean freewoman’s gown from Svago, which has a dramatic high collar and comes in five different colours, very suitable for medieval, fairytale, or fantasy wear:

Port Kar

You have to trek a bit from the spawn point for this one (here’s the exact SLURL, just follow the red beacon arrow and walk straight through the marketplace and through the stone arch at the end to reach the docks). There you will find five crates on the docks which you can buy for zero Lindens:

Click on the Port Kar FREE FW box and you will get this lovely medieval/fantasy gown with optional straps:

Here’s what the slavewear camisk looks like (there are two boxes for two versions of this outfit, one clean and one dirty/smudged):

Varn

At the City of Varn you can pick up some nice medieval clothing, just walk to the other end of the dock (past the Gorean Meter curtain) and click the containers sitting on the dock (one outfit for men and the other for women):

Here’s what the ornate medieval women’s outfit looks like:

And this is what the men’s outfit looks like (it includes a black cape which is not shown). Note that you have to click on the antlers on top of the container, rather than the container itself, to get this freebie!

So, there you have it! You do not need to spend any money to outfit yourself for medieval or fantasy roleplay if you visit these four Gorean freebie spots! Happy shopping!
