Shack - Equinox silks

More new goodies from Shack!

Latest release is the Equinox set, which comes in both silk and chalwar sets.

I grabbed the silks in violet... they come with both full and 'regular' skirt options.

Beautiful Sin - Halloween 50% off sale and lucky dip

Eek! Get down to Beautiful Sin quick - there's a 50% off sale on, and everything seems to be half price.

There's a Halloween lucky dip, too, stuffed with all sorts of prizes, and even some of the booby prizes sound like they could be fun - like the rideable bee.

And, there's now five lucky boards instead of two. Yay!

Below are some quick pics of my sale purchases.

Midnight Mania at Rag Dollz

Currently on the Midnight Mania board at Rag Dollz - but probably not for very long - is new release Desert Nights in gold.

The Virgin Harlot - Samirah silks

Wow, talk about a Princess Kajira! This beautiful set from Ceri Kesten is definitely one for the spoiled girls.

FREE gowns at Madison's Creations

I don't think these are particularly new, but, in case you didn't know about them...

Soedara - Goddess silks and Wrapped in net

Wow, Marbella at Soedara is creating far too many gorgeous things for me to keep up!

So, in a futile attempt to pretend I'm on top of things, here's a quick look at the new Goddess Unum and Goddess Duae silks, as well as the Wrapped in Net camisk-silk set.

The designs also inspired to try out some colours I don't usually wear, such as peach and yellow.

In fact, that might be the only downside to shopping at Soedara - trying not to buy the outfits in every colour! (Apparently, that's the sign of a true shopaholic...)

PixelDolls - Cheongsam (qipao) dresses

Wow, how difficult could this be? Set up a white background, change clothes
, ctrl ` a few times... and ta-dah, post done.

Unfortunately, Second Life didn't want to co-operate, and refused to rez my textures, leaving me all blurry. Multiple rebakes, tweaks to the graphics preferences and relogs didn't help.

(And of course, all those relogs didn't help with trying to keep consistent settings for the pics.)

After some googling, it turns out it might have a Phoenix Viewer setting - more info here if you're having a similar problem, such as vendors in shops staying grey when you're mad keen to shop. Since making hte change, all seems to be going smoothly

Anyway... the blog must go on.

When I was tping around to follow up on yesterday's sale silks post, I came across these beautiful cheongsam or qipao dresses. I love cheongsams... so elegant and romantic!

Floor Candy - Beauty and Dark Beauty silks

What luxury! These sumptuous silks not only feature beautiful textures - with just a hint of chinoiserie - but are adorned with some of the loveliest prim flowers I've seen.

Enchanted silks - Dinas

Enchanted silks slashed their prices a while ago... naturally, I took this as a call to go shopping ;)

I dug this little number out of my 'silks to be sorted' folder (you don't want to know how much is in there).

Blackout sale (and Halloween freebie) at Silks of the Siren

It seems like it's been a while since there's been much activity over at Silks of the Siren, but, now you can prepare to be spoiled with a Halloween freebie and the 'blackout sale'.

All black silks (yes, even those on the discounted floor) are half price, meaning you can buy one of Draelle Chandler's sultry creations from as little as 50L.

Perfect if you want to show your dark side this Halloween!

Siren's Torment
As well as slave girls, some of the styles would be suitable perhaps for drow or baaad fairies...

Here's just a small selection of the half-price silks.

Some hunt prizes from the 30L October Fling Fair

Yay! Not only does the 30L October Fling Fair feature bargains galore, it also has a mini-hunt with some fabulous prizes for you to find.

(Don't wait too long before checking it out as it's due to end on 22nd October.)

Below are a few I managed to pick up.

These are the Sasha silks from Luas. Soooo cute, with beautiful flower garlands, and free if you can find them!

FallnAngel Creations - Roewan silks

I was shopping my closet (ie my ever expanding inventory) the other day, and came across this stunner from FallnAngel Creations.

The Shack - Melene camisk

Concluding the mini-series of the Shack autumn collection, we come to the Melene camisk.

It's a deliciously floaty confection, and can be modestly to pass for contemporary casual wear too. It could make a lovely fairy outfit, and there's a hint of 'ballerina at rehearsals' about it too.

35L Sunday at Arachne Silks III: Naked as you wanna be!

Eeek! There's no way I'm modelling this outfit for you.

And in fact, I spent quite a bit of time wondering whether or not to put some 'censored' strips over the vendor image.  That's how naughty this outfit is.

The strips were a no-go (if I put them in, you wouldn't be able to see the silks)... so I tried some judicious blurring instead. Hopefully it doesn't look just plain weird.

Fingers crossed I can keep my PG status. Naughtiness after the jump!

Well, Firefox has outdone herself with the creation of these lovely ethereal silks, bound to be a huge hit. Any fae or princess kajira would be pleased to have them in her wardrobe.

Silks Sale at.... Carrie's Lingerie?!

You might not think a lingerie store is a good place to go shopping for silks, but maybe these pictures will change your mind!

Every week, a Carrie's staffer selects some outfits to be half price, and until this Wednesday, there are some silk-tastic ensembles reduced.

My favourite freebies: Free silks and more in Second Life

Update: This blog post is archived. Please check the permanent page - Free in Second Life - which I try to keep relatively up-to-date. (It's also linked from the menu.) Any feedback on this page welcomed - if you'd like to see it presented or ordered differently, let me know.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Well... here it is my list of favourite freebie stops, for new girls and anyone who's tight on their budgets.

I've tried to link close to the relevant board or gift vendor, but you'll probably have to follow those little red arrows quite a bit.

Unless otherwise stated, gifts are for females (sorry guys).

If you know any places you'd like to share, please leave a comment! There could be a 'favourite freebies' part two :)
