Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Halloween Hunts!

October is a busy time in Second Life, with many Halloween-themed hunts and events. It’s a great time to pick up some free and inexpensive items for your wardrobe!

Let’s start with a casual outfit with a couple of Halloween hunt freebies:

The T-shirt (which comes in a wide variety of sizes to fit both male and female avatars) is one of two free gifts hidden away in the truly maddening Halloween maze at Haunted Frolic, stop number 48 on SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour and Hunt.

And the sneakers are a free hunt gift too! The web chuck sneakers are a gift hidden at the Petite Mort/Oubliette booth at the Trick or Treat Lane event, running from now until Nov. 1st:

There’s also a Halloween Hunt going on at Brii Underground Wear, with ten easy-to-find pumpkins, each containing a different Halloween outfit. Here’s one of those ten prizes:

The Mary Salem outfit includes this elegant black strapless gown and the matching wrap, as well as some gothic cameo jewelry and a top hat, both of which I did not include in this picture. As you can see, this beautiful formal black gown can be used for more than just Halloween parties! Find pumpkin #2 at Brii and it’s yours for just L$6!


The last freebie isn’t a Halloween hunt gift, but it is free. This lovely strapless satin cocktail dress comes in black and pink, with an optional black or pink ribbon at the neck, and it is a free gift from C!L Boutique to mark October as Pink Ribbon Month for breast cancer awareness. You don’t need to join any group to pick it up; just teleport to this SLURL and click on the panel on the wall:

Happy hunting and shopping!

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:

Happy shopping!

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Gifts for Men from the Man Cave Event and a Complete Summer Outfit from Hoorenbeek

Men sometimes find the pickings to be pretty slim when it comes to freebies in Second Life. Well, today I have news about some fabulous freebies that are just for male avatars.

First, did you know that it is the 2nd anniversary of the Man Cave shopping event? And to celebrate, there are free gifts available at most of the vendor booths, hidden in bunches of balloons. All you have to do is join the Man Cave group for free, and the gifts are yours for the taking.

As just one example of the many free gifts you can pick up, here are the Marcus dress shoes, which come with socks on which you can adjust the height, colour, and pattern using the included HUD:

You can also adjust the buckle, sole, and base colours of the shoe. It’s a fabulous freebie that will go well with any dressy suit or formalwear. Just head over to the Volver booth at this exact SLURL, and click on the leftmost set of balloons to get your gift:

And since you’re already there, why not pick up all the other wonderful freebies for men at the event? The Man Cave event ends July 11th, so don’t wait!

(In case you’re wondering, the suit I’m wearing in the top two pictures is a former group gift from Bakaboo, which is unfortunately no longer available.)

While we’re on the subject of great deals for male avatars, check out this wonderful summer outfit from Hoorenbeek. Everything this avatar is wearing—shirt, shorts, belt, beaded bracelet, sandals, sunglasses, even the shark’s tooth necklace—is included, for free! And check the details; they are all superbly done:

To get this freebie, just teleport to the Hoorenbeek main store, join their group for free, and click on the vendor at the entrance:

The unpacker HUD for the Hoorenbeek gift offers versions of this outfit for classic avatars, as well as for Slink Physique, Signature Gianni, Signature Geralt, and Belleza Jake mesh bodies. Happy shopping!
