It’s So Easy

HAIR |SL Marketplace.Alli&Ali Designs Hair.Invincible Hair (FUCTIONAL DEMO) – men's dark brown fade (free) 
| OUTFIT |The Free Dove.Suna Design.Kim Outfit – Dress/Heels/Necklace Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/TMP/5 standards(NO alpha) (GG/free)

I love hassle free shopping!  Nothing tickles me more than opening a box packed with a complete outfit.  Yesterday I visited The Free Dove and found the Kim outfit.  Kim comes with a sexy little dress, strappy heels, and a mesh necklace.  If tomato red is one of your colors, then this dress is for you!

Today’s featured hair is the Invincible functional demo from Alli & Ali.  Invincible is actually a rigged mesh man’s hairstyle.  The hairline has a wide widow’s peak that I chose to minimize by wearing a dark hairbase.  From the front Invincible simply looks like a unisex style.  However, when viewed from the back, the gap between a female’s body and the flowing hair is a dead giveaway that it was rigged for men.

That gap is not necessarily a bad thing.  Rigged men’s long hairstyles offer the perfect workaround for females desirous of wearing long hair with bulky coats and hoodies.  I always recommend wearing the bulking item you’d like your hair to flow over, then trying rigged male demos.  This way you’re able to check if the fit will work for you without wasting your Lindens.

I almost forgot to mention that both the dress, and the heels are sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies.  The heels are sized for high feet only.

Enjoy the quick change!

First stop – Seniha Originals for a wonderful separates set.  The Briit set is currently Seniha’s gift to the Mesh Body Friends shopping group.  It comes in two colors sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.

While at the store, be sure to join Seniha’s store group to pickup several other fantastic gifts, along with a chance to win five spring hued luckyboard selections.

Simply walk over to Vaxer to pickup today’s final outfit.  Indy is a complete outfit in a box, consists of pants/shirt/boots, and can be worn by mesh and classic avatars.  Since the pieces are separates, they can be mixed and matched quite easily with several of the items included in previous looks to give you well over 10 different looks from today’s haul.

| EYES |Arata Shouten.Skin Fair 2019 gift – mesh eyes w/6 texture HUD 6DOO/CATWA/Genus/LAQ (free)

Though I’ve assembled six outfits, there is still one last store to visit.  Arata Shouten has generously set out their 2019 Skin Fair mesh eyes gift as a store freebie for all visitors.  These eyes have a captivating quality that enhances the look of any avatar.   The gift includes a  texture HUD plus six sets of mesh eyes sized for 6DOO, Catwa, Genus, and LAQ heads.

If you don’t have any of those mesh heads, but would like to  wear the eyes, it’s not a problem.  Since the mesh eyes are unrigged they’ll work with any mesh head or classic avatar by simply positioning/resizing in edit mode.  Classic avatars will also need to wear an eye alpha.

Until we meet again, shop happy!

| OUTFIT |Nala Designs.Fresh Cass Purple – for mesh bodies (GG/free)
| TATTOO |SL Marketplace.Isuka Tattoos.Illuminati tattoo – Classic layers/Slink/Omega Appliers(free)

I’ve got to admit, I love it when designers package a complete outfit tidily into one gift box.  Don’t get me wrong, finding freebies and creating new looks is definitely an obsession for all of us at All Spiffed Up.  However, every so often it’s simply nice to just open a box, wear its contents, and hit the grid.  For me, it’s the Second Life version of taking a day off from bed making.

Thanks to Nala Designs we can all have a lazy dress day in a brand new outfit.  The box includes the fringe halter, jeans, heels, and necklace.  The skinny jeans are sized for classic, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP bodies.  The halter comes with a fitmesh and Slink Physique model, plus 5 standard sizes.  The heels are sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

This outfit can be found in the far right corner of the store.  It is a gift for Fabulously Free in Second Life group members, so you’ll need to join the free group.  Nala supports many other free shopping groups.  The shopping group gifts are dotted around the store, one in each room.

In this closeup the gold necklace included with the outfit is visible.

Today’s sassy hairstyle is a “functional demo”, or more aptly a free sample from the marketplace.  It comes in the one shade, black raspberry, and is yours to wear indefinitely.  Be sure have a lengthy browse through Alli&Ali Design’s other styles, there are lots of interesting freebies in their marketplace store.

Finish off today’s look with another marketplace freebie from Zibska.  This fantastic eyeshadow set can be worn by everyone!  The box is packed with appliers galore and system tattoo layers.

Until next time, shop happy!

Pop over to Sintiklia for these wonderful mesh hair accents.  The hair buns are part of a boxed gift set.  They come with several color HUDs, and an additional color picker HUD.  We paired the buns with the Babyhair gift set also from Sintiklia.   Both of these gifts are free for all store visitors.  Thanks Sintiklia, we love them!

If you’re thinking buns and babyhair don’t make a complete hairstyle, you are correct.  Altamura’s Estephania gift comes with the option to wear a hairbase.  Simply wear the hairbase, and color the buns to match for an instant new hairstyle.  Any avatar, classic or mesh, can make this style by wearing a colored hairbase and coordinating the Sintiklia buns and babyhair to match.

For the earrings, simply drop by the All Spiffed Up headquarters to get a pair for yourself.

Harley

ASU - Harley face

Halloween look #7 is based on Margo Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.  Thanks to the wonderful gifts gathered from several designers we were able to capture the essence of the character.

The smudged Harley Quinn makeup is a freebie from LV Designs.  It’s an applier only set.  Though it was created for the Bimbo mesh head, it’s an Omega applier and worked perfectly on our model’s non-Bimbo head.  To capture Harley’s smile we did make two mods to our mouth shape.  First, we widened the mouth width, and then we increased the corners upward slant.

ASU - Harley fullfront

No Cabide’s Harley Quinn Set is a complete outfit-in-a-box.  The top, shorts, and garters are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies.  Appliers for the socks are also included.  The collar and shoes are unrigged/resizable.

Goodbye Summer

It’s time to put away the ice cube trays, and break out the marshmallows and hot chocolate.  Might as well throw in a few knits with fluffy turtlenecks from carmelo de fresa to help capture that warm toasty feeling.

carmelo de fresa has two group gift walls, one on the ground floor for various shopping group members, and one on the floor above for their store group.  And, you guessed it, the carmelo de fresa group is free to join

The Syra turtleneck sweater dress is a complete outfit.  It comes with the sweater dress (5 standard sizes + alpha), boots (sized for Slink + alpha), and a bracelet (not pictured).  Classic avatars take note, this dress is for you.  And, if you classics own slink feet so are the boots thanks to the included alpha.

ASU - Goodbye Summerboottall

Mesh bodied avatars, including wearers of the “gift” classic eBody and Altamura gift bodies can fix most of the fit discrepancies with their alpha system, however to achieve a perfect fit near the hemline you may need to adjust (under the Leg tab) your shape’s butt and saddle bags sizes.  Depending on your shape, you might need to lower the slider for leg muscles to fit into the boots.

You’ll have to pick up each variation of the dress from the gift wall to get all these patterns.
