Hahaha yes you can do that too in sl :DD
I know how hard it is to be bulled because you look bad and not a mesh avatar. We have our real life that we have to put up with people who treat us bad because they may be our bosses.
Sl must be a place to relax, meet people and have fun and not a place to be mad or sad in any way. So that’s the reason I am writing this post, hoping that can add a smile to some of you by helping you enjoy sl even more!!:DD
First of all I need to say this because as a creator I have to deal with it a lot. Too many out there are spoiled by our free good quality gifts we give and they are so rude, so demanding, and so ungrateful.
Please do not become one of them.
We spend time and money to create those free group gifts and we deserve better.
If you do not like a free gift delete it do not become rude about it.
Stop asking for more free gifts to a creator when you do not buy for them.
When I am having a bad day and I get an im from someone asking me to make more gifts or will you make more than one monthly free group gift or I want the color hud why not give it in the free box and you have to sale it or this item that you sale I want it as a free gift………. It makes me mad it really does. It makes me feel that the world is so full of selfish people who do not care of the hard work and the afford you put to make them smile. I do not think I am the only one that feels like that when an im like those above hit their profile. If I am well then that’s me:PPPPPPPP
Well now that I said it lets go to the fun positive part of this post yeaaaaa come on follow me!!
When you create your account sl gives you the option to choose an avatar to start with, well you may have chosen one of them but as soon as you get in to sl you can use all of them. Yes yes yes!! You can use the hair or skin or shape or clothes so you can look better, mix them up as you like. Here is how to find them: go to your viewer menu up left to AVATAR menu then go to CHOOSE AN AVATAR and then a window will open with all the free avatars, wear them so they can show up at your inventory and keep what you like from each one of them! It may change in the future on how to find them or stop giving this option but for now, it works.
Another way is to visit those blogs that post all the group gifts and freebies out there. They are many, I do not know them all but google it to be sure you got them all. At their post, they write how to get the gift. Write these key words in google: freebies in sl – it will show you many blogs and pages full of free stuff. I will add a few of them but I do not get anything by posting them I am not sponsor them in any way. Some I use them too when I have a free group gift, some I learn from others that they are out there.
At marketplace, you can find bazaar items as well or even free ones. Bazaar sales for 1L,2L.
They are hunts that have free gifts too. ( I will talk about them in another post)
You can become a blogger. ( I will talk about them in another post)
Some places in sl have free stuff and they work as helper points too. I know a few from asking around and in some of them I have given free clothes there to help new people.

Not all group gifts or freebies are out there forever, many of them have expired date so you need to hurry and get them.
In some events, you can find many free stuff too. Most of my hair are from the hair event!!!!! I went 2 times (2 years) and I got so many amazing hair, I do not know if they still have free gifts or not but in some events they do.
They are the advent calendar ( https://www.teleporthub.com/?s=+advent+calendars, https://slhunts.wordpress.com/2019/10/06/holiday-advent-ure-2019/, https://huntsl.com/2019/10/07/holiday-advent-ure-2019/ ) where the shop post how they will give gifts at xmas or other holidays.
I am hoping this helps even a little to all of you, to be more familiar with the ways you can improve your looks and feel more happier in sl!Hugs
