Daffodils at every turn can only mean one thing:  Spring is here!  To celebrate the change in seasons I’ve put together a fun lighthearted look.  Best of all, today’s model could be you.  That’s right, everything including the Bento rigged mesh body is free.

I’m going to break with tradition, and start by talking about the shoes. Usually I start my commentary at the head and work my way down the body ending with the shoes.  However, these lovelies could disappear at any moment.  So, if you like them I suggest you stop reading and teleport to the Ace Event ASAP!  The event has officially closed, and the ban lines have gone up.  But, the gift is still out.  You can teleport over, cam in, join the group, get the gift, and run right back here to finish reading the blog.

ASU - Happy Springback

Today’s dress from LSR Moda is a special treat for anyone wearing an Altamura body.   The Sexy Maira gift set includes mesh models for Altamura, Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass.  The dress fits Altamura bodies perfectly with no need to use the alpha system whatsoever!

ASU - Happy Spring piercing

All of this outfit’s jewelry are marketplace freebies.  The Think Pink gift set from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos is simply fabulous.  As an added benefit the items are copy mod, which makes tinting an extra option.  I subtlety changed the shade of the sunglasses to better compliment the dress tone.

ASU - Happy Spring face

I love the Rita hair from Alli&Ali!  This is another one of the many functional demo’s available in their marketplace store.  The pastel unicorn colorway epitomizes spring’s essence.   I can’t help but smile every time I wear it.

Happy Spring Equinox.

 


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet plus the clothing is 100% free thanks to the generosity of today’s featured designers.

I’m not sure I’d stand there gawking up when shadows like that paint the ground.  Hopefully, it’s nothing more then a couple of Warbugs engaged in a dogfight.  If not, I hope our model knows how to run in heels.

Speculations aside, today’s look could be you.  Everything from our model’s head to her her Slink compatible feet is free!  Assembly is as easy as six teleports, five free group joins, and a few clicks in Second Life’s Marketplace.

ASU - ItsAjewelry

Here’s a closer look at the Square Chunk Jewelry Set from the marketplace.  It comes with earrings and a necklace in two shades.  Each piece includes a resize on touch menu.

ASU - ItsAshoe

I love the detailing on the Jasmine heels.  These heels are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh feet.  They are currently available at The Free Dove, and come in eight fantastic floral prints.  You can also view the purple iris variation here.

Happy shopping!

Romeo & Juliet

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.
