Now that I have your attention...hehe. Don't worry, it's a fashion thread!  :)

Let's put together a fabulous look from head to toe, spend as little as we can, and post the results here.

While putting together a look, I thought, there are so many things here that cost so little. I wonder if people know how easy it is?  

CHEAP and EASY.  That's the theme for this topic. How to be cheap, but not LOOK it.  Here goes!

 

Summer Shape in Cheapie Stuff 1 sm.pngAnd how to get it all:

(everything there is free, men's and women's shoes)

YOUR TURN!  This doesn't have to be perfect. IF things are past gifts or sales that is OK, just give the pic and SLurl so people get a taste of what each place has to offer. This is for fun and to show how easy it is to be CHEAP and still look good.  :D

Hello Clarissa. Nice topic. This pic doesn't show exactly my avatar but it is a good idea, especially for new users how they can create a very good avatar almost for free:

Red nails: Piercing dollarbie Red Nails - 1 Linden

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Keauhou%20Beach/114/30/1801

So everything you see in the pic, costs just 1 linden (for nails). You can find all other stuff (except of shoes) for free. For shoes i am sure that if you try (i speak generally of course) you can find other great offers.

Have fun.

I did this freebie look almost a year ago. But, I checked that you can still get the skin and boots! Those things cost a lot of money and is hard to find. I was challenging myself to make a male look who should be a bit "different". Good free male stuff is really hard to find, but it gets better!

Excellent post, and so so true.  There's no excuse for anyone to look less than fab given all the quality, free stuff we can get our hands on. 

Does the free stuff have to be current, or not?  Idk if i have time to do this, but just checking.  :-)

Thanks!

No, it doesn't have to be current, although it's a bonus if it is still available. I include non-current items on my style cards along with a landmark. My philosophy on this is: Most places that have one gift or hunt will have many more in future. Usually such merchants see this as a good way to bring in and get the loyalty of, future customers. And I think they are right!

Pix and SLurls are very appreciated, though. This way people can see at a glance how great you can look and still be cheap and easy (LOL.) And then they can go get their own  :)

Thanks!

Wow! That's a great look, and REALLY cheap too! I mean it's basically all free.

I want to impress upon new residents that  you really can have a complete avatar for nothing or next to nothing. There's no reason to stay in the "newbie avatars" as nice as the latest crop are. 

Many places won't hire anyone with a "newbie avatar" so this is important for people who want a Second Life job too.

Thanks!

Thanks! Male avatars for 'cheap and easy' are appreciated! There is a lot less stuff out there for men, free or not. It's a lot better than it used to be, though. I mean, like a few years ago, even when people really tried, there just wasn't much out there.

He looks great, and is really unique!

These avs are all different and all Cheap and Easy!  Keep them coming everybody!  Thanks for the great posts!!

Yep... I think I will post more male looks, because it's simply more difficult. It's free and cheap stuff for females all over!

For the roleplayer in you....

5768514414_6ef353f898_b.jpg5768522594_e7f36bc039_b.jpg

A good skin for males. What does it cost? 800 L? 1500 L? How about..... 25 L?

Bird Next Door Shinobu skin, silver. Comes with shape and eyes too, not worn. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Karazhan/57/43/21

Belt: Sey,   group gift in store. Join group and click board

Oops, looks like this thread is dead? I better post more undead looks. Vampire roleplay in SL has a bad name to many, much because of spam bite requests. Imagine you are an amazing roleplayer. Your carefully typed out plots has brought you to the throne. But your minions look better than you... even the fool has a sexy avatar! But you can't buy much §L... All you have is a few 100 you got in tips when you tried pole dancing before you found this roleplay.

5770327801_1e163aab12_b.jpg

World's End Garden has some impressive gowns. Join the group and get 2 that can be mixed, and 2 fantastic headpieces. They are not new, but they are always new to some, haha. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Heaven%20Lake/69/120/21

 

The stockings and shoes isn't just your taste, but these boots are only 19L from the marketplace! https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/PROMO-Vida-02-Black-Boots/1998185

There you find the fishnet leggings https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Curious-Kitties-FREE-Fishnet-Leggings/1828371

and the bloody lips and parted lips, one set is free and the other is only 1L. So far you only spent 20L! https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/TW-Vamps-Bloody-Mouth-Tattoo/2092937 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/T-Parted-lips-tattoo-layers-free/1829719

And intense vampire eyes? https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Lithium-Creation-Husky-Dream-Eyes-Free/1270998

And a good updo for the amazing hat from World's End Garden: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/AA-Katie-Hair-Darkbrown-curly-updo-hairstyle-PROMO-OFFER/1995654

All you need now is a skin, and the Dressing room has this Glam Layla grey skin on sale for only 70L http://slurl.com/secondlife/This%20Way/33/156/21  (The contents change twice a month, but it's always at least one female skin on sale there)

The marketplace is a good source to freebies and promo offers. You have to go through a ton of junk to find the good stuff, but it's worth it IMHO.

Thanks for the new posts, everyone! :)

Lelu: Wow! Those are two great, creatively shopped looks. And they both look totally different even tho they use the same shape (which is adorable btw.) 50L Friday was great this week, I love that bikini. Thanks for posting it all!

Marianne: Roleplay looks are a great addition to the topic. They look really expensively done. I can hear the flap of bat wings as all the SL vampires race to those shops!

I'll get off my duff after the holiday weekend & post some more too. I promise!

Keep posting everyone. I can't get over the really creative combos!
