Every month Fashion Dazzle runs a themed sales event. For February 2017 we get to shop with a flair for Paris! This month’s products range in price from 90L$ to 1500L$, though you can find two tops for 10L$ each! Read on for sneak peeks and a full list of participants.
You’re here for the sneakin’, aren’t you? Well I won’t make you wait! As always, the images can be clicked for full view so you can check out the details on these beautiful outfits. Items available at the event are listed in bold.
Each designer has a small section showing you the item you’re looking for in the store. Each section also shows at least one item you can get from the designer. The object you’re hunting for can be found to the left of the brand’s name. The designers’ products used in the photos will be listed under the images in each section. As always, full photo credits can be found at the bottom of the post and each image can be clicked for full view.
Hunting in Second Life may conjure up the image of virtual big game shooting experiences. While that probably exists on grid, it’s not what we’re talking about today; we’re focusing on shopping events! Second Life hunts are a fun way to collect items for both your avatar and your home. Here are the very basics of hunting events in Second Life.
What Exactly Is A Second Life Hunt?
Imagine if a scavenger hunt, hide and seek, and some Second Life goodies were all shaken up together. The result? A Second Life hunt! You’re given a place to start looking and then you scour the area for the product. Usually the product is boxed in a themed shape such as a little coin, apple, or animal. Once you find the product you activate it (usually by touching or paying) to receive the gift and a hint about the next item to find. Most hunts only run for a set amount of time, so make sure to check the dates before you start!
Hunts can be free or they may have a charge. They may hide all the items in one sim or in locations all over the grid. Each and every hunt is different and appeals to different people. One person may enjoy a smaller hunt with items that aren’t too hard to find while another may prefer spending hours looking for many tricky items.
Since 2005 The Free Dove has been helping players make their Second Life avatars absolutely gorgeous. The store is filled with clothes, shoes, hair, accessories, and more so everyone can look stylish. The cost? Absolutely nothing. That’s right, nearly everything at The Free Dove is completely free of charge.
Shopping At The Free Dove
Located in beautiful Gallii, The Free Dove caters to new players and veterans alike. The store itself has easy to see guides on everything from basic etiquette to unpacking your purchases. While the place is extremely newbie friendly, veteran players don’t want to pass up the chance to visit. Even though there is no cost for the majority of items at the store, the products at The Free Dove are good quality. The owner, Palomma Casanova, handpicks all the designers to ensure everything meets her standards. The second floor hosts a few Gacha machines and low cost vendors, though the majority of the products are on the free first floor. Whether you’re just starting your inventory or you’re rounding out your collection, The Free Dove has something for you.

Thanks to the success of Slink feet and the new Slink bento hands (as well as the demand for other brands to support them) switching out certain parts has been common for quite some time. With bento becoming exceedingly popular we’re seeing more users also consider bento hands instead of their standard ones. If the term Bento doesn’t ring a bell consider checking out my Project Bento post so you’re up to speed.
Standard Mesh Hands
We’re all used to the standard Mesh hands by now. They can look nice, however they are stuck in a neutral position. Usually Mesh hands come standard with the body you purchase. Some come with a HUD to allow the user to change various details on the hands. This may include things like skin tone, nail style and color, or tattoos/markings such as freckles. Until recently Second Life hands were little more than an extension of the body.
