December is one of the best months for freebie hunting in Second Life!  The grid is teaming with gifts.  Advent Calendars, hunts, special store Christmas gifts, and holiday events make living large something everyone, regardless of their budget can do.

I recently discovered Applique Chic when I was out scouting advent calendars.  This store has two free advent calendars.  That’s a set of gifts for male and female avatars.  As an added bonus, the Applique Chic group is free to join, has a bank of lucky chairs, several daily manias for all to enjoy.

Today’s cozy sweater and skirt outfit is currently a daily mania gift that only needs 25 people to slap the board.  So, gather up your friends and head over to Applique Chic, it’s well worth the teleport.

AS-Nov4face

Completing today’s look requires two more teleports.  This cute little necklace is one of many gifts at the Winter Dreams Market. You’ll find lots of great gifts circling around the train decor.  Most of the gifts are free, however some aren’t, so be careful with the wild clicking.  While at the market be sure to check out their advent calendar.

Our last stop is FaMESHed.  The December 2019 round is in full swing, and let me tell you, it is loaded with awesome gifts! Today’s hairstyle, boots, buttons, and Bento rings are all booth gifts at FaMESHed.

And that my friends is a wrap.  Shop happy everyone!

Male Fashion Nov 2019

AS-Nov3

HAIR |Dura.2015 Unisex Gift – Hat/Hair 5 color HUD + resize Menu (group gift/free) 
| EYES |Black Friday Bazaar.Stunner Originals.Positivity Eyes – 8 color HUD mesh eyes + appliers Catwa/Genus/Omega (group gift/free)
| TOP |Second Life Marketplace.Quartz Paris Couture.Mutiny Tee – fitmesh in tucked & loose versions (free)   
| SHORTS & SHOES |Second Life Marketplace.To Be Unique.2 Gifts – fitmesh (free)

I know, it’s been far too long since my last male themed post.  So, I thought I’d start off by doing a quick Second Life Marketplace search for freebies.   Which is where I found the free clothing for today’s look.

To Be Unique and Quartz Paris Couture supplied the male top and bottom clothing.  All of the items are fitmesh, so are wearable by both classic and mesh avatars.  Mesh avatars will probably have to use a bit of their alpha system.  Overall, fitting was a cinch.

AS-Nov3face

To finish off this look, you’ll have to teleport over to Dura and the Black Friday Bazaar.  At Dura, simply join the store’s free group to get this beanie hairstyle from their group gift area.  This style comes with a five color HUD, and includes a resize menu.

Group joining is also a must at the Black Friday Bazaar.  However, the group is fee free so it’s really no problem at all.  This event runs through December 1st and has over 60 designer booths giving out a nice freebie.  Visit Stunner Originals’ booth to pick up these vivid mesh eyes.  The gift includes mesh eyes and mesh appliers.  Thanks Stunner Originals for giving a gift everyone can enjoy!

Until next time, shop happy.

ASU - Oct CBF2
This lovely skin from Mert & BusenuR is a phenomenal gift.  It includes system layers for classic avatars, and a bunch of specialized appliers, plus the all purpose Omega applier.  Not only that, the package includes no brow and cleavage options.

I love these subtly macabre spider web eyes from LadyBunny. The included appliers work great.  However, it’s also wonderful to know the box contains both mesh and system eyes. Thanks LadyBunny for making a product all avatars can enjoy!

And that’s a wrap.  Until next time, shop happy.

No matter how hard I try, today’s title simply doesn’t sub well into the Prince tune playing in my head.   Instead of wasting time trying to rewrite a classic, let’s just go to {Chaotic}.  The store always has a wonderful gift section, but with Halloween approaching, the freebies have multiplied.  Follow the pumpkins to the Halloween room to make the dress and pumps above your own.

Last September I had a dream.  Granted it was a very small dream, but it was filled with free jeans, tees, hoodies, sneakers, and the kind of flowing long hairstyles school girls love.   Of course, after days of frustrating freebie hunting my dream was unceremoniously dashed.  I simply couldn’t find the kind of freebies I like to fill that virtual back-to-school shopping list glimmering in my mind’s eye.

My friends, that story will not be repeated this year!  Casual clothing lovers and virtual students, this series of posts are for you.
