My Favorite Year (freebies roundup)

Sileny over at Free*style had a great idea for a year end “thank you post”, but I just can’t do it.   It’s just too tough to narrow down my favorite freebies to just three for this year.  I tried, and I couldn’t.  *Fail*   I could post about 100 things I’ve received this year that I wear ALL the time.   And even as I hit the publish key, I can think of more of my favorites, and more designers that deserve a mention.  With that caveat, I’m going to show you just some of my favorites.   Nearly all of these designers consistently gave high quality gifts throughout the year, and what’s posted here represents just a sample.  Most of these gifts are no longer available as freebies, and many are no longer available at all.  For that reason, (and my mental health) I haven’t included slurls.  The names of the designers are below, and please don’t contact them about no longer available gifts.

If you regularly read our blog, you know that Gabby and I have featured hundreds of gifts and designers this year, and I can’t begin to do them all justice in one post.  I haven’t even touched on all the fantastic homes, furnishings and decor we were givien this year.  I’m also only showing items I actually wore, which means there are whole categories of Cyberpunk/Neko/Fetish/RP/Lingerie/Tiny/Swim/Furry/Child/Fromal/Wedding and Steampunk gifts that I’m not covering.  There are no gifts for men here, and since I wasn’t eligable for under 30 days/newbie and rezday gifts, those are left out too.  And because the pictures were necessarily from a distance, I didn’t include information for any of the wonderful gifts from eye makers this year.  My favorites included eyes from Tuli, Poetic Colors, Curio, Miriel, Artilleri, MADesigns, and Clover.  Poses included free or greatly reduced offerings from Flowey, Gliteratti, KS, PDA, [LAP] and Torridwear.  Putting this post together was a very humbling and overwhelming experience.  With sincere gratitude for your creativity, hard work and generosity, thank you to all the wonderful creators in Second Life who make this place so much more beautiful, whimsical and fun.

    Thank you, it took quite a few days to do, but once I got going, I couldn’t stop. And I could easily do a “part 2”. lol
