One of my favourite things to do in SL is to throw on some sparkly fins and explore under the sea. You’d be surprised to find almost as much happens under the water as it does on land in Second Life! While you can spend a ton of lindens putting together mermaid costumes, you can also come up with some very nice inexpensive aquatic costumes as well. The first thing you will need is a mermaid AO so that your legs stay together when you move around. You can find a free basic Mer AO at Pacific Sunrise. You can of course purchase mermaid AOs with more options and swim aids to help you move around in the water, but to get started a basic mermaid AO is just fine.
The skin I have chosen to wear in this post is called Skintimate 75L Gift Exclusive and you can find it at the 75L Skin Store as a free group gift, along with a couple other free gift skins. The group is currently free to join.
Below are a few free or nearly free mermaid sets I have found in my swimmy travels this week.
Neptune Mer comes complete with fins, different top modesty layers, scales and also a belt, bracelets and a ring to match. The tail is shimmery and flexy. You can find this freebie at Club Mermaid within Mermaid Temple.
2. Pacific Sunrise Valentine Tail
Valentine Tail is a group gift at Pacific Sunrise and is 1L with a free group join up. It also includes a mermaid cuddle pose.
3. Pacific Sunrise Halloween Tail
The Halloween Tail is full with large fluttery fins – quite an eye catching piece! This is a group gift at Pacific Sunrise for 1L (group free to join).
4. Pacific Sunrise Thanksgiving Tail
Thanksgiving Tail from Pacific Sunrise is a 1L group gift (free to join) that has a big billowy feather tail, and also a matching hair piece.
5. Pacific Sunrise Mer-Starter Kit
For just 10L you can pick up the The Mer-Starter Kit from Pacific Sunrise that includes a Koi Tail and matching top, as well as a mermaid AO, a couple of gestures and… my favourite part… the mouth bubbles. I am wearing the peach colour, but it comes in several different shades if you prefer a different colour. If you are really lucky, you might win this one in the lucky chair for free!
#6 Zohee’s Mer Designs Female Lava Tail Freebie
Safe Waters has a clam shell full of mer freebies to be picked up for 0L! One of the items in the pearls was this Female Lava Tail Freebie from Zohee’s Mer Designs. Thanks to Rayya for showing me this one! It was a pleasure to meet you :)
Hope to see more of you under the sea soon!!
Love is wearing…
