I can barely contain myself!  It’s a free group join weekend at 7 Deadly Skins and Scandalize.  That’s a 275 Linden savings at 7 Deadly Skins (7DS), and an even 100L saved at Scandalize.

AS - Nov2 face

Today’s look includes a group luckyboard gift from 7DS, and a complete outfit-in-a-box group gift from Scandalize.  If you need more incentive to join consider this:  Both stores have many more gifts available for their members.

Furthermore, both stores give new gifts every month.  And, they each have lucky boards requiring group membership to play.  Did I mention that the gifts are high quality?

Need more encouragement to join?  Here are a few Scandalize outfits I’ve blogged that are still available on their group gift wall:

New Outfit, Coiffed Hair, Fresh Skin, New You!

AS - Nov11-1

Happy November!  To kick off this month’s posts I thought I’d change things up a bit.  All of the items featured in today’s pictures are freebies from the stores listed below.  The stores above the horizontal line have fee-free groups that offer loads of free gifts to members.  Plus, each of the three stores has a great set of lucky boards requiring group membership.  Basically, these designers are so freebieliscous they deserve a special mention.

STORE LIST 

The stores below the horiztional line do not have free groups to join.  However, these talented creators often give out completely free and absolutely fantastic gifts, which makes them stores worth watching.

AS - powder

Let’s start with LSR Moda.  Whenever I pop over to LSR, I’m almost always looking for something short and sexy.  Of course, short and sexy is by no means the extent of LSR’s inventory.  Their stock includes all sorts of garments, makeup, hair, and shoes too. All of the clothing featured today came from either LSR Moda’s group area or the lucky boards.

LSR’s group is free to join, and currently features 6 gifts plus 10 lucky boards.

Join the LSR group.

I discovered Mosquito’s Way years ago at a White Nights shopping event.  The store had an event booth, and gave away a wonderfully detailed gift pair of heels.  I loved the heels so much, I immediately teleported to their mainstore.  As a result, I’ve been a customer ever since.

The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join, and currently features 10 group gifts plus 3 lucky chairs.  Inside the store you’ll aslo find gifts for several shopping groups.  The featured necklace is currently a gift for SLF&O members.  Furthermore, all of the shoes are current group gifts and lucky board prizes  at the the main store.  Hanging around Mosquito’s Way for your letter is well worth the time spent.  The lucky board gifts are full fatpacks!

Join Mosquito’s Way group.

AS - Cotton Candy

Too much hair is never enough!  Which, is why I strongly recommend a lengthy visit to NYNE.

NYNE has two store groups.  Joining the regular store group is free, and at present, grants access to 19 group gifts and 8 lucky boards.  That’s definitely enough hairstyles to get you through the upcoming holiday season.  Each one of the featured hairstyles is currently a free gift in-world.

AS - Maple

Zibska is one of my favorite makeup creators.  Though Zibska’s group is not free to join, this creative designer gives out lots of truly wonderful free gifts throughout the year.  There is usually one free gift in the mainstore, and another in Zibska’s marketplace store.

Today our model is wearing a different shade of the Cal Eyemakeup gift for L’Homme readers in each photo.  Even though Cal was designed for male avatars, it also works as an understated shadow on female faces.  Simply teleport to Zibska, join L’Homme’s free group, and click the kiosk to receive your gift.

If you’d like a few more pronounced eyeshadows, be sure to check out Zibska’s Marketplace store.  Currently, there are two free eyeshadows just waiting to insinuate themselves into your inventory.

AS - Fudge

Sometimes the only thing needed to spruce up your avatar is a new skin tone.   My all time favorite Second Life skinners are the talented folks at 7 Deadly Skins.  As a general rule, the store group is NOT free to join.  However, 7 Deadly Skins features free group join weekends several times a year.  And, as luck would have it the last free join weekend for 2019 is scheduled for November 23 – 25th.  Mark your calendars dear readers because you need to be a member to enjoy the store’s awesome advent calendar opening on December 1st.

If you’re not sure whether or not this is a group you’d like to join, why not try one of the free gifts currently available for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MGS&N) group.  Simply join the free shopping group, and teleport over to 7 Deadly Skins.

Inside the store you’ll find a few shelves with gifts for various shopping groups.  Wear MGS&N’s tag and click the box to receive the Shelby skin featured in all of today’s pictures.  The gift box includes 10 skin tones, and a browless option.  This is a fabulous gift for Omega compatible avatars.

Happy shopping everyone!

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.

Today’s boldly big hair is one of Olive’s rotating Midnight Mania fatpack gifts.  So, if you miss it this time, don’t worry, it will cycle back next week.  While at Olive, check out the fast moving lucky boards.  They are loaded with lots of lovely hairstyles.  Best of all, they’re free for everyone to play.

The last stop on our list is 7 Deadly Skins for the Feny skin.  Feny is featured on the free-to-play Mini Mania board.  This lovely skin comes in three shades with brow/no brow options.  7 Deadly Skins also sets gifts out for members of various Second Life shopping groups.

I’m not sure I’d stand there gawking up when shadows like that paint the ground.  Hopefully, it’s nothing more then a couple of Warbugs engaged in a dogfight.  If not, I hope our model knows how to run in heels.
Speculations aside, today’s look could be you.  Everything from our model’s head to her her Slink compatible feet is free!  Assembly is as easy as six teleports, five free group joins, and a few clicks in Second Life’s Marketplace.
