Kick butt pose at Sugar Mill

I was hanging out a bit earlier at Sugar Mill with Anicia Medici, Necia Harchester (both pictured here) and Omaire Abattoir. Fun people! as I was wandering around, I caught Anicia touching up another free pose. This one kicks-ass. (Literally). You can get her kick-ass animation at her store.

Sugar Mill Grove: Free poses and animations

I have two primary interests in Second Life. The first is to be a newcomer helper, mostly, at NCI. The second is that I enjoy photography. That said, I keep an eye open for freebies that I can point new people to, and I keep an eye open for free poses and animations in Second Life.

With that in mind, how can I avoid mentioning that Sugar Mill Grove is giving away free animations and poses.

I thank Anicia Medici for her generosity, and creativity. Based on what I’ve seen in her store, her particular bent is not the so-frequent glamour poses that we see, but group poses, or creative and dorky stuff. Fun stuff is good!

Check out the animations, and when you download the 15 free animations, either buy one that pleases you, to reward her, or simply send her a thank you note. People often forget that freebies take time, work and energy to created. Nothing quite warms the heart as someone who expresses their appreciation of it.

Whoops! Noticed later that they are dollarbies. Still a great deal!

Newbies! Free Sexy Walk and AO (Animation Override)

So you come to Second Life, and you’re just plain Jane. You’ve figured out that all these old timers look soooo cool and that you are unhip!

I hate it when that happens.

Then you discover the shopping thing. Hair, dresses, you’ve even figured out that you don’t want to be “tits on sticks” (most newbie girls make giraff like long legs and HUGE bazoongas, whereas the males make their shoulders the width of a Mac truck and the waist the size of a toothpick).

And then one day… you see her. And she walks so cool and sexy… and you don’t! In fact, you waddle like you have a porcupine up your butt! :( What do you do? How does she do it? More importantly, how do you do it? Has she got a secret?

That my friends is no secret, it’s what we call an Animation Overrider (AO), or sometimes called “a sexy walk”. It’s a tiny little thing that you wear invisibly, that makes it so that you avatar moves in a certain way, automatically when you do things. When you walk, it makes a walking animation kick in. When you stand, it changes your pose automatically, when you sit, it makes you sit nicely.

Where do I get one? I want a free AO!

My friend Feodora Umarov (a.k.a The Walking Inventory) points to a Free AO that you can get here. Go and get it!

Beauty Avatar gives away 2 free female outfits

Beauty avatar is selling two very lovely outfits for L$0! Lisbona and Vienna. At first, I clicked on the poster and purchased, only to realize moments later it was L$0. I looked up the owner to tell them of it (please support our content creators!) and spoke to Tiago Morales who informed me that “we selling that dress to 0 linden because they are old”.

What? Our clothes wear out here? So not only was I exculpated from having bought something for free, but I discovered yet another vendor who is beyond scarcity mentality. A good creator should never fear losing money by giving away a decent product. In RL that’s known as “value added” and in my own experience does nothng but create customer good will and good word of mouth. Guess this post is proof.

Lot’s of very nice stuff here, and if you cross the street you’ll find men’s fashions and some very lovely skins as well. I’m considering the purchase of Rozen Genesis. Maybe a review on it later, if I do.

The short of it? Great stuff and positive impressions about Beauty Avatar, as much for good quality as for good attitude.
