In these perilous times, now more than ever, we need diversions that lift our spirits without endangering our health and welfare.  Bombing around in Second Life is a great way to stay social and have fun, all while doing our bit to flatten the COVID-19 curve.  Who doesn’t love a good game of Greedy Greedy?

I know it’s hard to think happy thoughts at this moment in time.  However, a few laughs, a bit of fun, and a couple of hot new outfits can go a long way to improving our outlook.  Luckily for us, there are several creators around the grid actively trying to give Second Life residents a reason to smile.

All of the tops and bottoms featured today are free gifts from Mangula.  The first two pictures show variations of Mangula’s current subscriber gift (subscribing is free).  Here’s an excerpt from the message accompanying this gift:

“This is an important moment in which we no longer enter SL just for pleasure but also to clear our minds of everything that is happening in the world and that in one way or another affects us, that’s why I thought about making this new Set as a #FreeGift in support of all of you…” – Mangula

This fantastic gift includes both the dresses pictured, the heels, optional sleeves, plus a shirt length model, and a great 20 color texture HUD that separately controls the main fabric and accents.  Thank you Mangula for your caring and generosity!

I’m going to depart from my normal mention of only free items to briefly discuss Genesis Lab.  I first discovered this talented creator years ago at Tres Chic.  Gensis Lab gifted visitors of the bygone round with a gorgeous albino mesh head.  I was so smitten with the gift, I immediately teleported to the store and joined their group.  And, before you ask, the group is not free to join.  But, the join fee is an extremely modest 99 Lindens considering the store’s group gift wall.

In support of their group members, Genesis Lab has slashed the price of today’s featured mesh head.  Here’s a look at the message sent out to the group:

“A lot of people have to be limited with personal contacts, stay and work at home because of the Covid-19. This difficult time it is very important to be be vigilant and keep calm. As a gesture of our kind support and care we would like to make a present – head Eva 3.8 BOM with 99% discount ♥️” – Genesis Lab

That’s 20 Lindens for group members.  If you are not a member, you’ll need to join the group for 99 Lindens, which would mean a total layout of 119 Lindens for this fantastic Bento rigged head. Folks that’s as close to free as something of this quality gets.  Eva is beautiful and worth every penny.

Thanks Genesis Lab for caring and sharing!

| OUTFIT |Queenz.Breeze Sandals – fatpack color HUD Maitreya/Belleza/Slink/eBody Curvy (group gift/free)

These highly configurable sandals are a group gift from Queenz.  The group is free to join, and packed with wonderful gifts that also include mesh models sized for eBody Curvy.

Let’s take a moment to talk about the eBody Shop!  Recently, this designer released a major update to their beautiful, but extremely limited, gift bodies.  They now include Bento rigged hands, are BOM ready, and are completely free at certain locations.  The BOM feature won’t work strait out of the box.  You’ll need to pop over to eBody to pick up the free BOM applier.  Trust me peeps, it’s worth the teleport.  This upgrade has moved eBody’s gifts to the top of my best free mesh body list!

Here’s a closer look at the Eva v. 3.8.5 BOM enable head.  If you decide to add this beauty to your mesh head arsenal, do keep in mind that it does not include a BOM skin.  Which of course is why I’ve included the link to this lovely BOM compatible marketplace freebie.  I love that M&B included browless and cleavage options! The Juliet Skin works seamlessly on this head and body combination.

Stay safe everyone.

It may be the day after, but there are still a ton of fantastic Christmas gifts around the grid just waiting to be found.  Not only that, but many normally fee based groups have dropped their joining fees for the holiday season that is rapidly coming to an end.  So, prepare yourself for a flurry of short and sweet posts highlighting great finds.

I bought these jeans at Wellmade.  Wellmade’s advent calendar day 24 gift is a gift card. It’s still available so hurry over.  Simply join the store’s free group, click day 24, and buy an item of your choosing.

Next, pop over to Scandalize for a giftaliscous experience.  The store’s group is temporarily free to join. Scandalize is notoriously generous to their group members,  Currently, members can pickup 24 gifts under the Christmas tree, along with over 20 gifts from the group area.  And, that does not factor in the numerous lucky board gifts waiting to be won.

Most of today’s items can be found on the Cosmopolitan Room’s Christmas tree.  Join the event’s fee free group and click on the gingerbread stockings decorating the tree.  Each stocking is filled with a lovely little gift.

Finish off today’s look with a visit to Euphoric.  At present, Euphoric’s group is free to join, and offers past group gifts.  The Hypnotic eyes featured above are a free gift for members of the SLF&O shopping group.  Did I mention SLF&O is free to join?

Until next time, shop happy!
