New Second Life Sponsors for the RyanSchultz.com Blog: Silvan Moon Designs and Virtue!

I am very happy to announce that, as of today, I have two Second Life content creators as sponsors for this blog, my first ever blog sponsors!

I have already blogged a couple of times about one of them, Silvan Moon Designs, a Second Life fashion design company owned and operated by Bee Dumpling and Solas NaGealai (SL StoreSL MarketplaceFlickr). I have gotten to know Solas very well over the past year-and-a-half in Sansar, and I absolutely adore the beautiful work that Bee and Solas do!

Here’s a picture of Vanity Fair wearing one of Silvan Moon’s latest designs, the stunning Iracebeth of Crims gown (see blogpost):

Also, as of today I now have a second SL sponsor! I will be a blogger for Abiela’s store in Second Life, called Virtue (which I also blogged about earlier as a great place to pick up some free group gifts for your female avatar):

Virtue Group Gifts 15 May 2018

Virtue is on the SL Marketplace and also has a newly redesigned store in Second Life, which I encourage you to visit.

And I will be blogging some new releases from both Virtue and Silvan Moon Designs starting this weekend!

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.)
