SL for Nowt

Living a digital life with empty pockets

You SHALL go to the ball!

Hey there, Cinderella. Got a ball to go to and you’re still in your newbie rags? Join the Dany French Touch and Leyda Style group (join fee just L$1) and check group notices for the September group gift for men and women. Guys, you get a smart silky shirt and pants, and ladies you get this gorgeous blue gown:

The skin is from the free set of Kalista skins at Tuli‘s mainstore (you can also find the free pack of Gem eyes there. Mar is wearing the sapphire shade here). Head into the big tree and you’ll find them on the stump just inside. The hair is from the free Susan fatpack by Exile at Savoir Hair, and the jewellery is the Ex Stripper set, to be found in the lucky board on the top floor at Ticky Tacky. You can also find the dress for L$1 in the Dany French Touch store. If you need heels, try the Ocean colour of stilettos from Tesla’s free Jane fatpack on XstreetSL.

Just L$1 and you can go to the ball!

Bang bang, I shot you down

Melee Switcher Weapons have fully-working, scripted dual Colt-45 semi-automatic guns on XstreetSL/SL Marketplace, absolutely free. They are compatible with most combat systems, and even if you’re not using them in a roleplay situation, or for target practice (not on unsuspecting newbies though, okay?) they still look fabulous as pose props. And, although the picture is titled Girls With Guns they’re for the blokes, too.

They also have dual Uzi semi-automatics (although these are a tad large for female hands) for the same price of L$0.

This photoshoot was fun ;) Hop behind the cut for a couple more pics.

We’re gonna score one more than yoooou!

Three lions on a shirt, Jules Rimet still gleaming…

Where was I? Oh! The World Cup! Come on, people; show your colours! Glad Rags have polo shirts for all the participating teams in the 2010 World Cup, which kicks off tomorrow. Each shirt costs just L$5, is unisex, and works both with and without the collar and cuffs (so you can wear it as a t-shirt, too)! Mar found some freebie shorts at KalRau (teeny ones for the girls and baggy ones for you lads), a freebie football by Teleworm Gelber, and House of Curios’ L$40 colour-change Bolts Sneakers. Lastly, Momomuller has released some special football poses that are awesome, so Mar had to grab a couple of those!

Permit me to dream…

Hop behind the cut for more pics, and where to get the items!

Beautiful Brides on a Budget

Weddings are big business in Second Life, and they can cost big money too. Wherever you can save money, you should, and so to that end Mar has dug around and found a few items to help you along on your big day. Blushing brides (and much paler ones!) read on, because I have your dress and veil, your hair, your shoes, and a lovely tropical bouquet for those beach weddings.

Here are two bridal looks. Tropical White Wedding:

And Gothic Bride:

Cowgirl style hits the Freebiesphere this weekend, thanks to an incredibly generous gift from Hoorenbeek. Ladies, those boys have put out some AWESOME boots just for us, just for this weekend!

Here, Mar has teamed them with one of the free dresses available at Trashy Girls In Style, one of Hairy Situations’ free new release styles, plus a freebie cowgirl hat (re-tinted) found on Xstreet SL, as well as just one of the gorgeous skins available in Beauty Avatar’s L$10 room:

Boys, you’ve not been left out of the Hoorenbeek goodies. For this weekend only, you can grab this fab pair of olive pants, which comes with three great prim belts and prim cuffs. Mar’s male incarnation has teamed them with freebie Slide hair from MADesigns, L$50 colour-change Leather Loafers from House of Curios, and a shirt that I didn’t realise was no longer available until the pics were already taken (sorry, boys!)

Lastly, here’s a better look at the new release gift from Hairy Situations. You get two styles, in normal and fullbright options:

New Year Glamour

The seasonal SL social whirl isn’t over yet! New Year’s Eve is almost upon us, with party invitations popping into inventories everywhere. Mar’s rummaged out four party frocks for the celebrations: three short n’ flirty ones, and one with a bit more glamour. Stockists are at the end of the post.

We start with yet more items being added to the 10L$ sale at Pixeldolls. Starting with very short n’ flirty, Mar grabbed this Ghost dress in the beautiful ‘ocean’ shade:

A very special Christmas gift from Exclusiva

How’s the Christmas shopping coming along? I got all of mine finished a couple of days ago, and by the end of it I felt as though my arms had elongated from the weight of all the bags.

Mar feels pretty much the same, having battled through the crowds at Exclusiva, but it was worth the single dollar she paid.

Hop behind the cut to see the extra-special dollarbie from Exclusiva, in partnership with AtomicBambi and Dryad Designs.

A grab-bag of goodies

Today’s post is brought to you by the letters [AV], the Sn@tch Twisted Hunt Gift, and Akers.

The dollarbie of the week at [AV] is this gorgeous Fifties Chic outfit. Since Mar didn’t win the matching shoes on the lucky board, she’s wearing Baby Monkey’s Flounce Pump in rose silk, which goes nicely with the outfit. Her hair is Baby in birch, by House of Heart.

Doing the Twisted Hunt? I exhausted myself finishing that last year, so I’ve only made a point of getting the prize from Sn@tch, because I’d seen it in Ivey’s group notice and had to have it. It’s a special Twisted Hunt-only wine-coloured version of the Chilled coat. You’re looking for a tiny, spinning Lamentation Puzzle (the one from Hellraiser) to get your gift. It’s within 20m of the store entrance. Here, Mar has teamed the coat with booty shorts from Sn@tch, House of Heart’s Carrie hair in black, and House of Curio’s colour-change Strappy Stilettos:
