What’s Up Pussycat?

What's Up Pussycat? cover
Meow!  No your eyes are not deceiving you, we’ve found yet another “hipster cat” outfit for you at FLG & No Cabide.  The backless t-shirt and skirt come boxed together.  They come sized to fit most of the major mesh bodies.  Unfortunately, standard mesh sizes are not included.

Of course, thanks to The Mesh Project the omission of standard mesh sizes and their corresponding alphas is never a problem.  A quick teleport to The Shops will remedy that problem ASAP.  The TMP beta free female body is always just a few clicks away.

Naturally, a system body wearer can always cobble together a few alphas and pull off this ensemble fairly well.  However the backless design of the t-shirt made doing that  quite a challenge.  In the end, it was easier for our model Gabby to simply change over to the TMP body.

Today’s flowing hairstyle is a Lucky Board find from Olive Hair.  It comes with a wonderful HUD loaded with terrific colors and a streak option.  If you are a hair enthusiast a visit to Olive is definitely in order!

All of Gabby’s jewelry is available for free in the Do Lubitsch Jewels marketplace store.  Do Lubitsch Jewelry is transferable, which is great for in-world gift giving!

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.

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.

Summertime Blues

Summertime Blues7

Summertime blues?  No problem.  A fashionable day trip to the beach will blast those blues away.

Nothing cures the blues in SL better than a great FREEBIE!  One of the things we try to do at All Spiffed Up is find freebies that are off the beaten path.

On a  recent search for cool hair we stumbled across Seniha Originals.  The group is free to join, and the gift dress is cute, cute, cute!  Seniha Originals is currently giving away three variations of the sundress featured above.

Summertime Blues4

Everley is wearting the free Dolce Dress.  It comes rigged for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Venus mesh bodies.

Everley’s tip for readers wearing the TMP Beta body free is to “think outside the box” when it comes finding a rigged mesh that fits.  Don’t despair if you open a freebie and find there it is nothing specifically rigged for the TMP mesh body.  More likely than not, one of the other rigged dresses will fit your TMP body.  So try them all on!

The Dolce Dress rigged for Maitreya bodies fits Everley’s TMP body perfectly.   Thank you Seniha Originals for giving such a lovely gift.

Summertime Blues5

Most of Everley’s ensemble can be found in the marketplace.  When shopping online for freebies be sure not limit yourself to gender only searches.  Everley’s sunglasses and jewelry are part of a wonderful gift set found at Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos.

Also, always keep an open mind for freebies that are modifiable.  Today’s sunhat is a gift in JT – Meshes, Poses, Photography store.  The hat is huge!  But, since it  is copy/mod we were able to tweak it to the hat you see above.

TIP:  If a mod item has elements you don’t want on it, i.e. the flower & bee simply right click and edit the item.  Be sure to check “edit linked” highlight the item you don’t want and then set transparency to 100%.  That is how Everley hid the sunflower & bee on the hat.

Summertime Blues2

TIP:  Always grab a store’s free hair color demo.  Often a color demo is wearable.

Summertime Blues3

Bella’s Lullaby is the supplier of our supple travel bag.  It is a 2012 Valentine’s Day gift  still available in the marketplace.  And yes, it came in red leather.

Since the bag is copy/mod we were able to hide a few things and change the color to match our vision.  You can even replace the “Made with Love” tag with a texture of your own making this bag one of the most changeable accessories in your inventory.

Summertime Blues9
Last up is a great little pair of flip flops with four color choices from Purrfection.  The sandals are sized to fit Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.  And, though not mentioned in the ad they also work with TMP feet as you can see above.

Mesh, Mesh, Baby, Mesh, Mesh…

Everly Cover

Confession time, brace yourselves, I’m just going to put it out there… I LOVE MESH!  Mesh hair, mesh clothing, mesh feet, mesh hands, mesh bodies, you get my point mesh is yummy.

The downside of mesh bodies and body parts is the price.  It is rare to find a mesh body, and mesh feet/hands for free.  When you do find a free mesh body it is usually a very scaled down version of its sister full price version.

The main features usually left off of free mesh bodies are:

  1. The built in alpha system.
  2. The ability to use appliers.
  3. Mesh feet and/or mesh hands

It’s the missing alpha system that makes the freebie mesh bodies so annoying to use on a daily basis.  However, if you’re looking to upgrade your avatar and find there is an appalling lack of Linden dollars in your account they are the perfect choice.

Meet Everley the newest member of team All Spiffed Up.

Everley wears The Mesh Project (TMP) Beta free body(f) 24/7.  Patience coupled with a bit of creative thinking is all that’s required to rock the TMP freebie daily.

Everly Back1

Not only is Everley”s avartar 100% free, but the look was super easy to assemble. The mesh body & dress are from TMP.

Everly Face

Everley’s shape, hair, skin, and boots can all be found at The Free Dove.  Her eyes are from the free Linden avatar Morgan.

So, if you don’t have the TMP body your only two teleports and a quick rummage through your inventory away from getting a new look.
