Â I’m not complaining, but can someone please tell me what the hell is going on with all the free skin? God, if only this stuff had been around when I was new!
I have always been a one-skin kind of girl. For the longest time all I wore was a Celestial Studios Vogue skin – still my favorite skin to date, honestly. Then I branched out and bought a Jessica skin by Cake, which I also still love dearly and wear a lot. I was so satisfied with my meager skin collection, I really wasn’t much of a skin shopper. Until now.
See, I started looking for freebies for Myg Morrisey, and holy crap! There was an avalanche before the holidays of really good free skin! So I started trying on a whole ton of different skins and then lo and behold, I had to have more. Score one for the SL designers, particularly Tuli, Chai and Dutch Touch who all got a nice chunkachange from me after I wore their freebies around and had to have more makeups.
Now I’ll tell you, dear M is for Myg fans, how to get my favorites of the free bunch for yourself.
The first skin here is a Re skin by the soon-to-be-SL-sainted Eloh Eliot. This woman went and released an entire line of skins, (Another Skin) (including a black skin) and it looks like a male skin will be released for free too. But get this – they were released with full perms and access to the photoshop files! Basically, she made a fully open source skin, and as far as I know, that’s a fashion first. Get the skin below by teleporting to Another Shop in Lippert: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Lippert/75/183/179
Next up is a Chai skin. I am still salivating, and smartness, I’m not a huge bright red lips fan so I couldn’t stop myself from buying more Chai. This is my fave fave of teh freebies. You get this one by going to Le Zoo and picking up the latest issue of Second Style. This skin is Ginger, Vedette Freckle (you know I love freckles, right?) The eyes kill me on this skin. I just loves them.
Get thee to CHAI Skins -treat yourself! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Freelon/127/85/30 (single skins $1200L, threepack for 3000.)
Next up is a Tuli. Below I’m wearing the Tuli S4F Cream with Brown Brows (and of course, with freckles!) Join the Tuli group before 1/22/08 to get the free holiday gift, which includes the entire skin tone range with this make-up.
Â Tuli makes great freckles, for all you freckle fans. Hers are my favorite, so much so I ended up buying a fat pack. Grab the freebie, and check out Tuli’s shop at Le Zoo: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Le%20Zoo/130/143/22
How psyched was I when one of my favorite designers of clothes got into the skin game? Well, totally of course! The next skin here is by Dutch Touch. If you join the group before 1/13/08, you can check the group notices to get it.
Â I had to have more of this skin line, and you probably will too – so here’s the SLURL: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Willow%20Beach/31/224/33
Last on the list is the Minnu Model Skin (MMSkins). Below is MMSPale 2008. To get it, join the MM Skins group before 1/22/08 and check the notices tab.
My god did they include a sweet guy skin!Â You can see Burgess wearing it here. (But please be warned, that photo was seriously touched up so the color is not accurate at all…)Â Stop by MMSkins to see their other stuff too.
So, I do not know the reason so many designers are releasing free high quality skin, but I do want to say I’m all for it.Â Help them keep doing it buy sending some of your support (aka your Lindens) their way!
