Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away (closeup)
Before you jump on the nearest yacht and cruise the Blake Sea we recommend a quick detour to Alien Gizmo.  Yes, it’s free 250L gift card time again.

Come Sail Away (front)
Alien Gizmo frequently sets out free gifts cards for anyone visiting their sim.  If you’re building you’re inventory, or simply like to wear something new everyday, we highly recommend popping by the stores on a regular basis.

Cabal’s sunglasses are great freebie from HEC – Hot Elegant Clothing.  They come with a highly detailed HUD that allows for tons of customization.

Cabal’s Gift Card Purchase:

Cabal is wearing the Jericho Outfit Denim which costs 199L normally, but of course was free today.

**As always the Alien Gizmo gift card can be used in their Men’s, Women’s, and Erotica stores.  With three stores to choose from you are bound to find that perfect item you never knew you needed but can’t simply live without!

New All Spiffed Up Gift

ASU Gold Sneaker Gift
Team All Spiffed Up has put out a new freebie for our readers. We introduced the ASU Sneaker Gold in our Pump It Up! post.  Though we textured the sneaker for Everley, we thought it would be fun to highlight the sneaker’s unisex appeal.

We caught up with Mr Mikey UK at a rehearsal and were pleased beyond belief to find him wearing our sneakers. Unfortunately the only freebie Mr Mikey UK has on is our sneakers.  For this post that will do quite nicely.  Gotta love a man with a flair for fashion!

So grab your friends and pop on over to 7th Heaven for a bit of rest and relaxation, and of course a few gifts on us.

Pump It Up!

Pump It Up! (cover)
A Second Life model’s day isn’t just filled with puppies and posies.  Heck no!  Just ask Team All Spiffed Up’s TMP model.  We caught up with Everley during one of her sculpt workouts and were excited to find she was wearing fantastic freebies.

Pump It Up! (back)
Everley found her great workout tee and shorts at the FLG & No Cabide store.  The Wanda Outfit comes in 5 standard sizes with alphas and sized versions for TMP, Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass & Physique), and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus).  Add to that the wonderful color change HUD and you have a perfect freebie

If you’ve never been to FLG & No Cabide then you are seriously missing out.  They have an extensive freebie room filled with gifts for numerous freebie groups like No Cabide, SLF & O, Maitrey Gifts, Sales & News, etc…  All of the groups are free to join so you are pretty much guaranteed to leave the store with a whole new wardrobe.

Pump It Up! (face)
Today’s hair is a free gift you can find at Truth Hair.  It is one of three group gifts available, and comes with a nice color change HUD.

Pump It Up! (asu gift)
For those of you who may be seeing our blog for the first time, our model Everley wears The Mesh Project’s BETA free body (TMP) exclusively.  The free TMP mesh body is great, it comes with tons of skin choices, hands, and three feet (bare/low/mid).

The feet pose the biggest dressing challenge.  The rigged shoes for Slink and Maitreya don’t fit TMP feet.  And, freebies for bare/low/mid feet are very limited which means creative thinking is a must.

Everley was getting a bit frustrated trying to find free sneakers for her outfit, so Team All Spiffed Up decided to intervene and make a custom pair of sneakers.   The ASU sneakers gift is non-rigged which allows you to position to your specifications.  We’ve also included a resizing menu for further versatility.  So pop over to our headquarters and get  a pair of sneakers on us.

Everley’s Style Card:

HAIR – Truth Hair  Kizzy Group Gift – Multi Color Hud (group gift 0L/0L to join)

Up Up and Away

In a hurry to get out and about in SL?   We’ve got a no-brainer outfit guaranteed to slash your dressing time today!  Simply teleport over to R&R Swag, join their group and grab the Meadow Outfit (white).

The Meadow Outfit comes complete with top, pants, sandals, necklace and bracelet.  Meadow sizes include most of the various mesh bodies along with standard sizes.  The sandals are sized for Slink feet only.

Up Up and Away front
The embroidered details are a charming touch.

Up Up and Away back
The sweet jewelry is non-rigged making positioning quite easy.

Today’s featured hair is a fun throwback to the 80s found in Analog Dog’s current freeball.

The eyes are a great group gift from Avi-Glam.  They come in 8 shades with your choice of either standard system eyes or a mesh set with a color changing HUD.

Up Up and Away face
And…for everyone out there that has yet to change over to a mesh head, we’ve got a nice standard skin from Mother Goose’s.  Yes, Mother Goose’s is still in world!  Better yet, they still have 2 pillars worth of fast changing Lucky Boards.  No group join necessary.

Personally, I love the mesh bodies. But, I have yet to adopt a mesh head.  The nice thing about not using a mesh head is that all of your fun old style skins can be worn with your mesh body.

What?  Wait you say… you can’t put those old skins on your nice new mesh body unless the company makes appliers for you.   Yes that is true, but you don’t need specialty appliers.  Simply wear the skin with the face you like, layer on all the extra makeup you love, and then use your mesh body’s skin hud and match the body’s skin tone to your face.  No one will ever know the difference.

If that sounds like something that appeals to you, then I highly recommend popping over to Mother Goose’s and picking up a bunch of the Lucky Board skins for yourself.  Who knows how long these old skins will be available.

Up Up and Away shoe
Rounding out our ensemble is a lovely pair of gladiator style sandals that come boxed with the Meadow Outfit.  These sandals are quite nice, and highly detailed.

Good Day Sunshine

Good Day Sunshine
What could be finer than a sunny morning in the tropics?   A sunny morning in the tropics with a Siamese of course!  Iona went to Bipolar Kitty in search of a new outfit and walked away, grinning like a loon, with a new pet accessory.  It’s definitely the little things that keep SL interesting.

Good Day Sunshine
How can you resist that face?… and all of that plush hand tooled Italian leather?

Good Day Sunshine
These sweet floral capris are one of many group gifts to be found at WellMade.

Good Day Sunshine
We especially like how the ties and bows detailing adds a bit of flirty charm to the outfit.

Good Day Sunshine
Let’s talk about the t-shirts.  Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, Iona is modeling 3 different tops.  Blueberry is probably one of team All Spiffed Up’s favorite stores.
The designers at Blueberry know their stuff.  Their texturing is terrific.

Good Day Sunshine
The t-shirts modeled today are actually two separate group gifts.  The green lace t-shirt is packaged with a long and short version.  The pumpkin side-tied t-shirt is the October gift. Best of all, both gifts come with fantastic color changing HUDS.

Though Blueberry’s group has a modest 20L join fee, both of these gifts can be picked up by anyone for free.  Simply stand in front of the group gift wall and hover your mouse over the gifts.  When your mouse changes to the pay icon, those are the gifts anyone can buy for 0L.

Good Day Sunshine
Iona’s hair can be found in the current freeball at Analog Dog.

The necklace and eyes are marketplace finds.

Good Day Sunshine
These babies are just sooooooooooo yummy!  KC Couture steals our breath away once again with these unique wedge heels.  As always, the HUD included with these babies allows the user to customize the main leather, the wedge, and the metal.  Thank you KC, thank you very much!

Two for the Road

Two for the Road (cover)
Happy Day! The Alien Gizmo absolutely free, no group join required, 250L gift card is still available.  I managed to convince Wolf & Gabby this was a freebie they shouldn’t pass up.  They popped over to Alien Gizmo, and today’s post is what they found for themselves.

Two for the Road (front)
Wolf freely admits he is a notoriously lazy dresser so it didn’t surprise us in the least that he chose a boxed outfit.  Dexter Outfit Red comes boxed with the t-shirt, jeans, and waist sweater.  It happens to be a featured sale item so he managed to grab another separate t-shirt too.

The Alien Gizmo outfits we’ve blogged have all included the standard mesh sizes along with meshes designed for the various name brand mesh bodies commonly used.

Two for the Road (back)
Gabby selected the Valencia Blue Outfit.  As with Wolf’s outfit, the t-shirt and jeans are separates so they can easily be mixed and matched with other items you already have in the closet.

Female avatars can walk away from Alien Gizmo with at least 6 separate items if they join the group.  In addition to the free gift card and group gifts, Alien Gizmo also has several Lucky Chairs.

Two for the Road (f)shoe
These stylish sandals are a Loordes of London gift at The Free Dove.

Two for the Road (m)shoe

Wolf’s ultra cool sneakers are a wonderful marketplace find!  They are 100% mesh and non-rigged for easy positioning.

Wolfgang’s Gift Card Purchase:

Wolf’s wearing The Dexter Outfit Red.  It is a sale item priced at 99L, which left more than enough on the gift card to purchase another t-shirt not pictured.


Gabby’s Gift Card Purchase:

Gabby chose the Valencia Blue Outfit which normally costs 189L without the gift card.

Hurry, the creators at Alien Gizmo are at it again and you probably don’t have long to get in on this fantastic freebie!   They’ve put out another absolutely free, no group join required, 250L gift card.

Alien Gizmo gift cards are exceptionally easy to use, and they actually put enough on the card so that you can afford to buy an outfit without having to kick in your own lindens.

Lucy Does Gacha

Lucy Does Gacha cover
Happy Weekend everyone!  We’ve got great news…The Gacha Garden is NOW open!  This round marks the Garden’s 2nd Birthday, and they are celebrating in a big way.

The event features over a 100 new gachas and tons of free gifts.  It took poor Lucy 2 days to sort through all the freebies.

Lucy picked her favorites to share with all of you.  Almost all of the gifts pictured here can be resized.  Which is exactly what Lucy did to the Moonicorn and Teddy Bear Rug.

Lucy Does Gacha detail
There is a little something for everyone at the Gacha Garden.  Lucy found several nice hairstyles, a great little dress, a crown, and a sweet necklace on top of all the fun furnishings.

Lucy Does Gacha back
Lucy also found a nice modifiable fox tail in the marketplace, and colored it to match her hair.

Lucy Does Gacha shoe
To complete the outfit Lucy scoured the marketplace and found the perfect boots in a Fizz Bomb & Pom Poms outfit freebie.

TIP:  Keep an open mind when looking at freebie outfits in the marketplace.  The outfit style at first glance may not appeal to you, however the accessories included in the box can turn out to be real gems.

Oopsie!

Oopsie! cover
…a funny thing happened in Second Life.  I was looking for inspiration for the next blog post when  a popup from Legendaire caught  my eye.  It said new SLF&O gift out and new store group gift added.

I thought aha! If those gifts are half as nice as the Riley Gift blogged in Greedy On I’m good to go.  I popped over to Legendaire and yes the gifts were great, BUT, when I perused the Group Gift wall I noticed the new shoe gift added replaced the Riley Gift we just blogged.  Arggggggggggh the Riley Gift is gone, hence the giant OOPSIE!

Oopsie! back
Though you’ve missed the lovably wacky hipster cat t-shirt, we were able to find another hipster cat article of clothing at Alien Gizmo!  The dress is not free per se, however it will cost nothing if you use the free 250L gift card Alien Gizmo is giving all visitors.

Time is of the essence, Alien Gizmo’s free gift card will only be available through late this afternoon.  So hurry on over and treat yourself to something special.

Oopsie! back detail
The detailing on this dress is quite nice.  If hipster cat is not your thing, there are several other variations of this dress that might catch your eye.

Oopsie! face
Hair, sunglasses, and earrings are all marketplace finds.

The snakeskin heels are another SLF&O gift featured at  =Moda= Designs & BodyshopSLF&O is short for the group Second Life Frees & Offers.   Many stores I visit set out a lovely gift for SLF&O group members.  Best of all, membership is free!

Why use one of your precious group slots on a freebie group like SLF&O?  The lost group slot is well worth it, here’s the short list:

  • access to group only free gifts
  • up-to-date news about freebie events across the grid
  • up-to-date news about sales across the grid
  • **notifications when designers  temporarily waive their group join fees…(this is my personal favorite and honestly probably the main reason why I’ve stayed in this group for years)

Greedy On

Greedy On cover
Looking for something to wear to your weekly Greedy Greedy game? We found the perfect casual outfit at Legendaire. The Riley Outfit covers all the basics in a single box: shirt, skirt, boots, and a belt that is not pictured.

Everything except the boots comes in 5 standard sizes with matching alphas and also fitted sizes for Slink and Maitreya bodies. The boots were designed for Slink feet.

Greedy On back
Legendaire is extremely generous with their gifts. There are two gifts at the door for anyone who visits. A third gift is for members of SLF&O. Then there are over 10 free gifts for Legendaire group members. Thanks Legendaire, we love the goodies!

Today’s model, Carla, is wearing the free Ava Shape from Curves Shapes and Skins. The Ava Shape is included in both the female mesh head gifts.

Greedy On belly
Carla’s Peek-a-boo midriff looked a bit bare so we went hunting for a piercing in the marketplace. We found this fun rainbow piercing at Stuffery.

Greedy On face
Carla’s skin and hair are group gifts from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and Venus Mesh Hair.

Greedy On right
All of the jewelry and eyes are great marketplace freebies.

Greedy On left
I love this playful pink leather bracelet by Candy Crunchers. Best of all, you can pick it up for free in green, blue, and purple too!

Here’s a closeup of those boots.

ASU - KeepCalm gift
Just in case you were wondering: How did team All Spiffed Up choose this outfit out of all the other freebies at Legendaire to blog? Simple, we love the hipster cat! A few years ago one of our team members found hipster cat and made it into a Greedy poster.

The minute Carla modeled the t-shirt the vote was unanimous we’d do a Greedy Greedy post. We’ve boxed up the poster in three sizes as a gift for our lovely readers. The poster is double sided, with one side set to full bright. So stop by the All Spiffed Up headquarters and pick up your August gift!
