Romeo & Juliet

ASU - HVD boyb

OUTFIT|Ebento .Altamura.Romeo & Juliet – 2 Separate gifts - each a FULL Mesh body (free)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Run over to Ebento to get these fabulous mesh bodies with fully loaded HUDs.   They will only be available today, February 14th.   To receive Romeo join the eBento Lovers group, then pay 1L (it will be reimbursed).

Juliet is free for Altamura group members.  Joining Altamura’s group cost 50L.  Folks it is totally worth joining this group!  Juliet is gorgeous and fully functional.  If you don’t have a mesh body this is your chance to get a great body that would normally cost close to 5,000 Lindens.

I can’t say enough nice things about Altamura.  Thanks guys from making our Valentine’s Day!

Prepare yourselves for another wild fit of box opening.  Designer’s Showcase is celebrating their 8th anniversary round!  And, birthday/anniversary rounds mean loads of great free gifts.

ASU - Glitterdress

I was so blown away by JUMO’s dazzlingly shiny silver gown that I almost missed the  sumptuous grey stole tucked into the box.  I know, hard to believe but true.  The photo shoot was completed, and I was double checking the box for a possible alpha when I noticed a fitmesh + 5 standard sized models with the word fur in their descriptions.

OMG! It’s sooooooo FLUFFY!  Did I mention no animals, virtual or otherwise, were harmed in the creation of this stole?  The textures on this entire gift are outstanding.  Thanks JUMO for such an amazing gift.

ASU - Glitterxtra

The featured earrings and eyes can also be found at Designer’s Showcase.  The mesh eyes are a gift from Dulce Secrets.  They come in 3 shades and are boxed with system eyes, mesh eyes, and Catwa/Lelutka appliers.

If you wear Maitreya/Slink/Belleza feet be sure to visit Hilly Haalan for today’s heels.  The 30 shades packed into their HUD make them a must have item.


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the jewelry to the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet are 100% free.  Thanks to the generosity of Altamura, transitioning to mesh couldn’t be easier.

BODY |Altamura .Clodet – mesh body w/AO & alpha HUDs (TeleportHub GG/10L group join fee)


With over a hundred free gifts just waiting to be snatched up it’s no wonder I’m still shopping & hopping!  The Shop & Hop event definitely requires more than one visit to gather all the fantastic gifts offered.

ASU - Casually Festiveback

To add this tastefully sequined gray sweater to your wardrobe you’ll have to pry yourself away from Shop & Hop, and teleport to Hilly Haalan.  Join the store’s free group, then saunter over to the gift room to pick up this beauty.  It comes in black and gray, and can be worn by both classic and mesh avatars.  It adds just enough sparkle to keep the festive flow of the holidays twinkling though to the New Year.

ASU - Casually Festiveface4

This lovely lady is my favorite Altamura gift body to date.  Clodet’s mostly oval jawline coupled with ultra glamorous eyelashes and the subtlest icy pink lips are simply stunning!  If you favor a light sallow skin color, Clodet is more than worth the 10 Linden group join fee for the TeleportHub.

Cubic Cherry’s Nemune mesh eyes look great on Clodet.  Nemune eyes come in 8 shades plus they have additional shadows and Omega applier HUDs.

Fans of pigtail hairstyles will love this fatpack from bonbon.  The style comes with an additional candy bow HUD (not pictured) that allows the wearer to show or hide the ribbons.  Until next time, shop happy!

Great Gifts!

SHOE |SL Marketplace .Duh!.engineer boots – wearable demo Tan (free)


** This body was completely free earlier this year during the WOH hunt.  It is now free for members of the Altamura group.  For the 2018 holiday season Altamura has reduced their group join fee to 25 Lindens.**

BODY |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle – mesh body w/AO & alpha HUDs (GG/25L temporary group join fee)
MAKEUP |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle lipstick – 4 colors (GG/25L temporary group join fee)


I have three little words to inspire you to get over to the Shop & Hop Event before it ends:  Blueberry store credit!  That’s 250 Lindens worth of a store credit to be exact.  It’s the perfect amount to add an item in your favorite Blueberry color to your wardrobe.

ASU - Great Giftsfb

This is Blueberry’s Laura outfit that comes boxed as two separates.  Separates are especially nice to have when dressing non Belleza/Maitreya/&Slink bodies.  Today’s model is wearing Emanuelle, a past WOH gift body from Altamura.  While dressing she found the dress sized for Maitreya fit the lower body best.  However, the cropped sweater sized for Slink fit her chest and shoulders best.  So, don’t be afraid to mix and match mesh clothing to get the best look on bodies not supported by your favorite designers.

ASU - Great Giftsff

Zip over to NYNE to pickup this fun winter hairdo.  Simply join their free group to get the Cicil hair.  It comes with a nice color picker HUD, allowing for virtually unlimited colors.  Also, if you wander to the back of the store you’ll find several shelves of past gifts.

ASU - Great Giftsshoe

Finish off this look with a wearable demo from Duh! found in the marketplace.  The boots can be resized, and positioned to achieve a perfect fit.  Happy shopping everyone!

Watch Your Step

ASU - Gotta Leafcover.

… I’m hunting leaves!

Or more precisely a leaf that happens to be the hunt object for SL F&O’s 1st Annual Hunt.  So far the gifts in this hunt are fantastic.  There are nearly 100 stores participating, the gifts are high quality, and completely free (0L).

Today’s hunt item feature is the Rush Jumpsuit from ArisArisB&W.  Rush is sized to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza bodies and comes with a 4 texture HUD.  These textures are so nice they leave you wishing for more.

ASU - Gotta Leafback

The jumpsuit has a nice slimming fit, with just the right amount of sheen.

ASU - Gotta Leafhair

If you’re thinking those lips look familiar, it is only because they are.  Estephania is Altamura’s SL F&O gift, and was featured in the Worth It post yesterday.  Though the Altamura bodies are not as widely supported as other mesh bodies, their classic shaping combined with an awesome alpha HUD make it a snap to fit into clothing sized for other brands.

Pop over to Queenz to pickup this casually sleek hair/hat set.  It comes with separate hat and hair color HUDs.

Lazuri supplied the jewelry.  The Classic Pearl Set is a free gift for all store visitors.

Last stop, Mangula for the Nina Elegant Heels.  They are sized for eBODY, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and come with a HUD controller for the leather, studs, and heel.  Simply join their subscriber group, wait a few seconds for the database to update, then click the gift boxes and leave happy.

Worth It

ASU - Worth the Trouble cover

Meet Estephania, Altamura’s fantastic gift to the 1st Annual SL F&O huntEstephania is a lovely Bento avatar that includes face and hand AO’s, a full alpha system, and Slink compatible feet.  This lovely lady is well worth hunting for.  Thank you Altamura for your continued generosity!

Today’s complete look is 100% free.  The Milena jumpsuit fatpack is a group gift from Scandalize.  It’s sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies and includes a bellychain and furry arm warmers.  The color HUD is loaded with 42 solid, and 22 ombre colors.  The ombre shades are simply beautiful.  If you haven’t visited Scandalize you’re missing out!

ASU - WorthIt face

Here’s a closer look at Estephania’s gorgeous face.  Altamura does not include eyes with their gift bodies. This isn’t a problem when your system eyes pair seamlessly with their heads.

This stylish hairdo is a wearable demo from Lelutka.  It includes their full range of colors in 15 HUDs.  It’s simply a fantastic versatile style.

The featured jewelry set is a gift from Dellybeams at The Free Dove.  Thought the set comes in one color it is copy/mod which allows for manual changes in edit mode.

Demon’s Delight

ASU - Demon's Delight Cover

Have you ever found an item that piques your interest, but simultaneously leaves you bewildered when trying envision how to use it?  If so, welcome to our world.

Zibska’s and BMS’ Hair Fair gifts are wonderful, and just different enough it took our team a few days to create a free look we felt did them justice.  We hope you enjoy it.

ASU - Demon's Delight f-b

The bodysuit is a wearable color tester from Beautiful Dirty Rich designed to showcase their current 20 shade color palette.  The tester supports Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Omega system appliers, and classic tattoo layers.

We plucked the tail out of a group gift from No Cabide.  It is copy/mod so we were able to change the texture and color to match our outfit.

ASU - Demon's Delight face

Our model used her mesh body and head HUDs to tint her skin green.  She also turned up the shine to achieve the fantasy look. Don’t despair if you’re a classic avatar, we’ve included a marketplace link to a free tint-able body tattoo layer for you to go green too.

ASU - Demon's Delight hair side

This fun hairstyle is the BMS Hair Fair gift.  It is resizable and tint-able, however the texture color is this nice strong green so any tint added will go over green.

ASU - Demon's Delight hair top

Just lots of great movement in this hair!  Thanks BMS, we love it.

ASU - Demon's Delight necklaceear

Here’s a closer look at the Lanthe earrings from ZibskaZibska’s gift includes the large conical collar, earrings, and a lovely eyeshadow set for both classic and mesh heads.  This is a fantastic avant-garde gift bound to inspire your avatar’s creativity.

ASU - Demon's Delight bracelet

The horns and studded choker/bracelet set are a little gift team All Spiffed Up’s creative director assembled for our readers.  Simply stop by the All Spiffed Up headquarters to get your gift.  Don’t mind the mess, we’re in the process of remodeling.

ASU - Demon's Delight boot

Finishing off the look is a lovely pair of strapped boots from La Belle Boutique (LBB) for The Free Dove.  They are part of the Jem Outfit have a color change HUD, and come sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

Back to School

ASU - Back to School cover

Joy of joys, we’ve finally assembled a Back-to-School outfit.  It has been a process that has left the All Spiffed Up studio littered with torn shopping bags, a few broken nails, and lots of outfits best suited for campus life in the animated series Bible Black.  That wasn’t quite the look we wanted to send our model to her first week of school in.

Thanks to the special gift round of On9 we were able to make this post happen.  Almost all of the 30 plus designers featured at On9 have put out a completely free (0L) no group required gift.  Find your happy place, pop over to On9.

Let’s start with the Sweet Cookie gift from BESHA&Loki. This prop/pose gift is fun, tasty, and calorie free.

ASU - Back to Schoolfront

The centerpiece of today’s outfit is the Kanatan Backpack/Sweater from KiB Designs.  This sweater is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies only.  That being said, this is a large oversized sweater.  It easily fit over a standard large mesh skirt  which certainly means a classic avatar will have no problem wearing it too.  It may be necessary to hide the arms, but any sweatshirt or long sleeved top alpha should solve the problem.

We paired Kanatan with a skirt taken from a great freebie set in EXTAL’s marketplace store.

ASU - Back to Schoolback

Here’s a back view showcasing the backpack.  Thanks KiB for a great gift!

These funky retro-ish glasses can be found at NYNE’s On9 booth.  They don’t come with a HUD, but they are copy/mod so you can easily color them any shade you desire in edit mode.

This gorgeous hairstyle is one of the many fantastic prizes currently available on Olive Hair’s lucky boards.  If you decide to do some shopping at Olive, this color is  in the Bubble Goth HUD.

ASU - Back To School Earring

NaaNaa’s Accessories supplied the Magic earrings.  They are resizable, and come with a 4 color HUD.

ASU - Back to Schoolnose

Everyone needs a diamond encrusted septum ring!  The designers at Dreamlight understand this hunger and thoughtfully packaged one in their On9 gift box.

ASU - Back to Schoolfingernails

Quite possibly the most versatile On9 gift is at SLACKGIRL’S booth.  The Azzurra Bento Mesh Nails are high quality neutrally toned fingernails that leave the wearer lusting after more color options.  Best of all SLACKGIRL has thoughtfully rigged them for Maitreya, Tuty, Belleza, Altamura, Eve, Tonic, Slink, and Vista hands.

For everyone out there wearing any of the gift Altamura bodies, this is your chance to pickup a nice perfectly fitted new manicure.

ASU - Back to Schoolshoe

…exhales a sigh of utter contentment.  These boots are just too lovely for words. Thanks MSS for sending us into a freebielicious coma!

Dancing Queen

ASU - DancingQCover

When a neckline plunges so far down it morphs into bikini line there is only one thing to do:  STRUT YOUR STUFF!

This daring romper from NyDesign comes in 5 colors with options of plain or lace for the bra and gold or silver for the metal accents.  NyDesign also has 3 other group gifts available and a row of Lucky Chairs.

ASU - DancingQbody

This romper’s revealing nature is perfect for showcasing our next freebie:  Altamura’s Jenny mesh body.  Jenny was a former hunt gift that Altamura has generously donated to the London City sim’s freebie center.  Jenny comes was a terrific alpha system and 3 foot heights that are compatible with Slink shoes.

ASU - DancingQback

Here’s a look from the back.

ASU - DancingQface

We left the packaged shape unmodified.  This is Jenny in her full glory.

You will find this hair along with several others at NYNE.  Keep in mind NYNE has two groups:  The free group, and a VIP group (not free).  The gifts to the right are for the free group members.

ASU - DancingQboot

These insanely high platform boots are the C&S gift at the Aloha Fair.  They are packaged with a fantastic 40 color HUD, and fit Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, & Tonic bodies.  Of course classic avatars can easily wear them by using one of their own alpha’s.
