There are many great places to go to when starting out on SL but the very first place I was ever taken for my freebies was Sarah Nerd’s Freebie Paradise. I left there with more items than I knew what to do with. The best item that I have kept all this time was my Naughty Mary Janes. These shoes are a great true freebie and work really well for most outfits that I have worn. With most items free, $1L, or in the wall of Wonder Chairs, this place is like the Walmart of freebie stores with everything but the kitchen sink to get you started but I hear that is coming soon.
I have known an amazing designer since my first week on SL. Laynie Link, the owner of LaynieWear, creates clothing with amazing detail and perfect seams. She has two full freebie outfits that cost not a single linden. The 80s Girl Costume has a cute pair of acid wash jeans that come with prim cuffs at the ankles. The jeans are paired with a Choose Life v-neck t-shirt with black trim. There are bright pink cashmere socks and a prim bow to give that extra 80s look to the ensemble. The hair worn with this is Liz from Bewitched in aubred. While Liz is not usually free, this item was given free as part of a hair drop in the store where free hair is given to anyone who pops over to the shop during a preset time. Eat your heart out, Debbie Gibson!
Another freebie from LaynieWear is the white corset set. This outfit is a white version of the gemstone collection and costs with 3 pieces: corset, panties and stripey socks. The corset is white brocade with black trim and beautiful lacing up the back. The panties match the corset with its black trim and the stripey socks are nicely done with perfectly matched seams which is a very hard thing to do with stripes. The hair worn with this is Wyald from Bewitched in silverblue. As with Liz while Wyald is not usually free, this item was given free as a gift to the members of the Bewitched group. With every new release, the owners of Bewitched, Sheltered Heart and FallinMy Webb, give a single color of each style to the members of the group. Between the hair drops and the free group gifts for new releases it is well worth a freebie hunter to be part of their group.
