Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: REIGN

Have you joined the RyanSchultz.com Discord yet? More details here. If you have a tip on finding Second Life freebies, come over and join us and share the good news!


One of Ryan’s eight rules for freebie hunting in Second Life is:

Watch for free group join periods!

Well, I got a great tip today from a blog I follow regularly, NessMarket.com, about another Second Life group that has temporarily dropped its group join fee.

The REIGN group is free to join, but only until Sunday! And you can pick up some really nice shoes and boots for your female avatar, 21 group gifts in total (not all are footwear; there’s also some coffee mugs).

And not just one measly pair of footwear each! We’re talking FATPACKS, with 20, 25, even 30 colours each!!! This is an incredible deal!

Take a look at only a few of the free group gifts from REIGN (I think that the boots in the second picture are especially nice):

(The last picture, the black pumps, comes with a HUD with just four options: black, and three different American stars-and-stripes patterns. It’s a former 4th of July group gift.)

So get down to REIGN and vacuum up those freebies! This SLURL will take you directly to the group gifts room. (The sim is very busy today, so you might have to use something like the Teleport Hammer to get in. Keep trying!)

Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: A Fifteen-Minute Nun Avatar Makeover for Only L$190!

“The power of Christ compels you!”

The Exorcist

Just for the hell of it (see what I did there?), I decided to give a 15-minute makeover to one of my oldest avatars, named SisterMary Blister, who has been a classic system avatar for well over 11 years now. Here’s the “Before” picture (I remember I actually used a man’s skin to get this makeup-free look):

And here are the “After” pictures:

Sister Mary Blister is wearing:

Mesh Avatar Head and Body: Kim by Altamura (which is still available for free at the UniHispana Crea Gateway Community sim; more information is available here). I had great fun playing with the mouth corners and the eyebrows to give her such a sour expression! You can also remove the long fingernails in the included HUD.

Mesh Eyes: Sunrise Mesh Eyes by eyden & yves (free from the SL Marketpace; comes with a 9-colour HUD).

Complete Nun’s Outfit (Except Shoes): Nun T2 Outfit by Bare Rose (available on the SL Marketplace for L$190 and at the Bare Rose store in-world). Bare Rose is well-known for selling an incredible variety of inexpensive costumes and outfits, and this one (the second edition of the original costume) is no exception. The outfit comes with the choice of a white belt or a black belt, as shown here.

Shoes: Black flats by Garbaggio (part of the free sample pack for Slink feet; available on the SL Marketplace). Altamura mesh avatar bodies have Slink-compatible feet.

AO: Chubby Girl AO by [ImpEle] (free from the SL Marketplace), plus the Hands AO from the Kim body package by Altamura (see above).

TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: L$190

The ruler, which comes with various animations including swatting and smacking nearby targets, was by Ming Lu of RP Fantasies. I bought this so many years ago, that I forgot what I paid for it, and it does not seem to be available anymore. However, RP Fantasies does sell a similar yardstick on the SL Marketplace, if you’re interested in meting out punishment to the poor sinners around you… 😉

(The last two “After” pictures were taken at the Mater Dolorosa Catholic Church in Second Life, which is actually a quite beautiful and serene place to light votive candles, pray, or just sit and contemplate.)

UPDATE 6:59 p.m.: I actually lasted all of five minutes at oRgAsMs Adult Free Sex Lounge, whacking the johns and escorts with my ruler, and shouting “SINNERS REPENT!“, before I was banned from the sim! Who says you can’t have good, clean fun in SL? (Yes, I’m evil. As I always like to say: if you’re going to go to hell, why not go express?)
