Option 1: Participate in an Event.
68 Main is all set and open for this round. There are several stores who’ve set up stalls with exclusive items, and some who have set out gifts. You need to be a member of the 68 Main group to claim the gifts, but the group is FREE to join.
Option 2: Set out a FREE Gift at the Event.
One of the stores with a gift box at the stall was Final Couture. I’d never known of them before and grabbed the gift as I meandered through 68 Main checking out what all was offered. Once I was done wandering I popped myself back home to open the boxes and try on my new goodies.
When I tried on the “Regan -Khaki” set that was Finale Couture’s gift, choosing the Slink Physique fitmesh, as that’s what is generally the closest fit for my Violet Studios Tudoto Mesh body I not only loved the suspended by straps design of the tank top, but the texture of the camo pants. As a former Army wife, I’ve washed and ironed more than my fair share of BDU’s and while this print isn’t the digital camo of military-issue the fabric is spot on. However, most of all, I was dazzled at how well this set is animated, there was zero glitching which is unheard of with this style of clothing on me. My back nearly always glitches and has to be alphaed if it’s not low cut in the back.
The Finale Couture “Regan-Khaki” set comes sized for:
- Slink -Physique and Hourglass
- Belleza – Freya and Venus
- Top only: also comes in standard sizing xxs-L
- There’s also a belt with a resize script included, which I accidentally left off!
Option 3: Have Lucky Letters
Anyway, this perfect fitting outfit prompted me to pop into the main store, where I ended up joining the in-world group. There are several gifts up for group members, along with 5 group only lucky chairs upstairs. The Finale Couture group is 100 lindens to join.
Option 4: Set up a 7seas Fishing Area With Unique Content
I’m again wearing last week’s fished hairstyle from Sn@tch’s current fishing bag “Fish 4 This Westside OG” I blogged more of the outfit, and yes the hair then too, here. There’s still one more week to catch this hair and all the other items in the Westside OG fishing bag. You can fish up a regular and large version of this hair, as well as a naturals color hud separately.
While you fish you can watch all 8 lucky letter boards, as well as keep an eye on the riot vends if they hit bottom. Also, all of Sn@tch’s unique items from the 7Seas pond are transferable. I sometimes even stay and fish up gifts for my friends. You don’t need to be in the Sn@tch group to fish the fishing bags, but, trading between members is common to help finish up a set. Best of all, you’ll get the notification immediately when Ivey Sets out a new fishing bag. The Sn@tch group is 200 lindens to join.
If you don’t have a 7Seas fishing pole already, there is a vendor next to the pond at Sn@tch, just cycle through with the arrows until you find either the casual (100L) good for fishing up store unique items, or the pro (250L) if you want to skill up fishing and participate in contests throughout the grid.
Option 5: Have Sales in your Store
ATIA, my favorite makeup store, which I just learned is actually not just marketplace only, is having a sale! Hip Hip Hooray! I’m wearing the “Champaign Wet Lip Tatoo” which is part of the “Autumn Wet Lip Tattoos Fatpack” for 88 lindens, there are 8 shades of lipstick in this pack, a pose stand, and a face light. Missy Math makes that 11 lindens per shade, and while I’ve had this pack for a while, I’ve used every single one of them.
I also picked up some new eyeliners while I was there, I’m wearing the Soft Focus Eyeliner 4 that I picked up for 25 lindens, but you can also get the full Soft Focus Fatpack for the sale price of 88 lindens.
My eyelashes came in the grab bag that is right at the entrance. I’m wearing “Plume” and they, among other things in the bag, are FREE.
Option 6: Have A Store FULL of FREE Stuff!
My necklace, bracelet, and skin (same skin as always) are all from The Free Dove, in which everything on the first floor is entirely FREE to group members, and the The Free Dove Group is FREE to join.
The Necklace is made by Tempestuous and is in the *PEACE* Necklace FatPack. I paired the Heavy Metal version out of the pack for today’s outfit. My bracelet is by Earthstones and is in the “Earthstones The Free Dove Gift Box for Guys”. I’m not a guy, but, I picked this up, and for this outfit pulled out the “Blake Bracelet – Black Onyx.” The bracelet comes with a resizer script so I was able to easily make it a perfect fit. The skin is by Avi-Glam and is the AG. Anna Skin (Exclusive for Free Dove). There are two tones, T0 or T1, black or blond eyebrows, and with or without cleavage. All versions are available in the box in standard avatar skin and Omega Applier.
This makes my entire look sans makeup and my ever-present specs FREE!
