Christmas is Freebie Season in SL

This post is dedicated to the hardworking and civic minded women at SL Free*Style and Fabulously Free in SL, as well as the freebie creators that they blog. Christmas seems to bring out the freebie spirit in designers, so I've been watching these blogs carefully of late. [Edit: And you, Sherpa! And all the other people I plumb forgot cause I posted this before coffee!]

I look forward to these posts every day not just for the free stuff, but for the opportunity that these posts give me to explore new parts of the world. Also, Designers are at their most whimsical when they make freebies. Often you'll get an item that you wouldn't normally invest your L in, but that you swiftly find is a neat part of your wardrobe. Sometimes freebies become the staples, like the Pixeldolls' Cimmaron pants, or the hair that I'm wearing in this picture (which has to be the most ubiquitous free hair in SL).

Thanks to freebie makers and hunters and bloggers everywhere.

YAY, thanks for the mention. I love that house hat! I have it but couldn't find hair to go with it, I never thought about this works perfectly!
