Thrifty Tips – She’s free, but not cheap

thrifty tips - free not cheap 1Here’s the first post of what might become yet another new series on my blog – Thrifty Tips. Every once in a while, I like to go and hunt for quality freebies or cheapies, and I think, they do deserve some space on my blog, too.

thrifty tips - free not cheap 2

When I put together my last post, I needed a few avatars for the second picture. Not too many people were around to help, so I had to dig out an older, unused account of mine. Her look was terribly dated, and she received a makeover, which was completely free and turned out very well, if I may say so myself.
Now, she isn’t one of my characters. There’s no story behind this girl and she doesn’t even have a name. But I think, she’s cute as a button, even if she’s a bit on the young side.

Oh, and thanks to Helena Stringer for pointing out the free skin on Plurk!

Allow me to introduce… HT

ht

Name: HT
Age: 26
Born: New York City, USA
Occupation: storekeeper

Just to make this clear, kids, this young man is not a role-model! Whether HT is a true culprit or a victim is not quite known, though.

A few years ago, he was found, drugged into oblivion, in a run-down appartment with a broken window. Below that window, they found the body of a prostitute.
HT claims to be innocent and says he does not even remember what must have been the party of his life. Nothing was found to actually prove his guilt beyond abuse of illegal substances. He served his sentence and after he was set free, could neither find a place to live, nor a job – until he ran into Corvus, who was desperately looking for someone to help him around the [hate this] warehouse.

Corvus doesn’t judge people. For him, the young man smelled about right – which was enough for the Kitteh to hire him and allow him to move into the warehouse.

OOC information:

Originally, [hate this] was founded by two people, Rubicon and me. HT was created as a business account to be used by both of us, but after Rubi left SecondLife, I continued to run the store under my own name. Sometimes, I use HT as a photo model, and while I was having fun with some friends, he got his background story.

Every once in a while I pull him out to run him through a hunt or two, or simply go freebie hunting. And that’s exactly what I did today (and why this post is a bit late).
Through the generous gifts for the Men Only Hunt, HT got a complete makeover today. And while I will admit, the outfit isn’t quite my usual style, I still had a lot of fun putting it together.

HT’s basic looks:

shape: my own
skin: Tableau Vivant (MOH3)
hair: Dura (free group gift)
eyes: Madesign (MOH3)
cigarette: HI

Allow me to introduce… Nathan

nathan - rainy day

Name: Nathan
Age: 29
Born: a jungle in another world
Occupation: tinkerer, involuntary air pirate, planestrider

Nathan’s mother was a wild jungle fae, his father a human clockmaker who served as a soldier in the colonies. Nathan grew up with his father, learned his trade and took over the clockmaker’s shop after his father died. One day, he was captured by air pirates who held him prisoner and forced him to maintain the engines of their airship for several years, before Nathan could escape.
He does not remember how he ended up in this world, but it looks like he has settled in here quite well.

Nathan dreads cold and rainy weather, his mother’s blood is strong in his veins and he can’t wait for summer.

OOC information:

Nathan is a character I could go on about for ages. Or write a book about. I have actually started, but meh, I’m lazy and stuff. I don’t use him very often in RP, but I still like him a lot.

game map & dice: Wayward Muse
