ASU - Look No Hands Cover
Happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a hot evening in Second Life planned because we’ve found a fun little outfit that simply begs for a night out on the town.

In our ongoing quest to find fantastic free footwear we wandered into Gos BoutiqueGos is filled with gorgeous footwear, their group is currently free to join, and the group gifts are simply WOW!
ASU -Look No Hands Dress
Valentina opened the Bardot Sandal gift and squealed in delight when she discovered this lovely ruffled mini included in the box.  All plans for a quiet night-in vanished.

Gos’ creators not only do a wonderful job with their textures, but they are also conscientious of their customer’s individual graphics preferences.  Each of the gifts we opened included regular and advanced lighting models.  The sandals are for Slink, and Maitreya mesh feet.  The dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Physique mesh bodies.

The level of detail on the advanced lighting model is marvelous.  Thanks Gos Boutique for the stunning gifts!

Carla’s dress is a nice little group gift from Alien Gizmo.  The mesh dress comes in three colors with standard sizes and several mesh body variations.

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.

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.

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.

Oopsie!

…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!

  • 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)

SL14B Get Your Shop On

Sl14Bshopping

Okay fellow freebie lovers, if you haven’t heard it yet, you might need to grab a paper bag and sit down least you faint.  Drum roll please… Linden labs is hosting a Pre-Birthday SHOPPING event!

The 14th Anniversary shopping event spans 3 sims hosting 60 merchants.  Each designer is giving one absolutely FREE birthday gift making a grand total of 60 no-hassle, no-group-required freebies.  SPOILER ALERT:  Several of the shops are giving more than one free gift!

Don’t bother running out to the kitchen to grab a sandwich and a super sipper expecting to settle in for an epic freebie rich blog entry.  I’m saving the SL14B gift previews for the upcoming blogs.

This blog entry is all about the gigantic elephant in our beloved virtual world.  Huh? What elephant, where?  I’m referring to our lovingly crafted and dearly paid for avatars.  All the mesh attachments and nifty huds that make our avatars super fab create nothing but chaos when hundreds of us flock to the same sim.

Lag rage is a fun killer!  So do yourself a favor, instead of avoiding cool events that attract tons of people, simplify your avatar.  I recommend picking up the FREE Nomi Nomi avatar.

littleavi for blog

Nomi Nomi by KabisCube is free, full-perm, low in complexity, requires no attached huds, and is incredibly cute.  Nomi actually looks like it is skipping when the avatar walks.

I’m not sure what was more fun, grabbing the freebies at the SL14B Shopping Event in record time, or laughing at the skipping bobble of Nomi on the move.  What I can say with a certainty is that Iona from “Almost the Whole Enchilada” post simply could not navigate the shopping sims.  She crashed 4 times, had serious trouble crossing the sims, and got stuck lag walking more times than a person should admit.

Nomi, on the other hand, breezed past everyone skipping hither and yon with no problems whatsoever.

Nomi’s (aka Iona’s) Style Card:

AVATAR – KabisCube’s Nomi Nomi_vr 1.9 – full perm w/color hud @ SL Marketplace (0L)

 

To make a smooth transition from your normal avatar look to the low lag Nomi:

  1. Backup your normal look by making an outfit.
  2. Unpack Nomi Nomi
  3. Right click the unpacked Nomi folder and select “replace current outfit”
  4. Choose the color you’d like for Nomi.
  5. Right click the color hud and detach it.
  6. TP to the SL14B Shopping Event.
  7. If you want to add more speed to your shopping lower your draw distance settings.
