Summer, Not Fade Away!

Summer, Not Fade Away! cover
When standing on a tropical island contemplating you’re next snorkeling adventure it is hard, oh so very hard, to accept that Summer 2017 has come to an end.  Luckily for us virtual world enthusiasts everyday can be summer if we so desire.

We tasked Wolfgang to go forth and find some new male freebies.  So he teleported off to a store he saw in a 2012 blog.  Of course he materialized in the middle of water.  The shop closed it’s doors long ago.

Being an adventurous guy, Wolf simply swam to shore and explored the sim.  Lucky for us, he found Cold Ash.  Which just so happens to be a store filled with quality mesh clothing and free group gifts.

Summer, Not Fade Away! back
The California t-shirt comes sized to fit mesh and classic bodies.  The shorts are sized only for mesh bodies.  Wolfgang wears a classic system body, and had to enlist the aid of team All Spiffed Up to get the shorts to work without altering his shape.

It took a little brain storming and two lower body alphas to get Wolf beach ready.  Since the anchor shorts didn’t come with a classic body alpha we’ve packaged up the alphas for our readers.  You can find them at the All Spiffed Up headquarters under the Summer, Not Fade Away! photo.

The leather and gold bracelets are also courtesy of Cold Ash.

Dark Desires

Dark Desires

Live a little this weekend, give in to your dark desires and… submit.  To what?  Well, that is entirely up to you.

Ny Design has the perfect group gift to launch your dark fantasy role-play weekend.  Their Leather Harness Bodysuit is highly detailed.  The harness can be worn with a full bra (as modeled), fishnet bra, no bra & panties, sleeves or no sleeves, and pants only.   It is sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.  Don’t despair system body wearers, the harness also comes in Fitmesh sizes XL, L, M, S, and XS.

Even if being strapped up in all that gorgeous leather isn’t your cup of tea, a visit to Ny Design is still a must-do.  The harness was one of many group gifts offered.  And, most of the other outfits were far less provocative.  Best of all, joining the group is free!
Dark Desires
The buckle and studded details add a nice finished touch to the harness mesh.
Dark Desires
Sintiklia’s marketplace store provided the perfect fantasy hair.  The Raphael hair can be worn with or without bangs, and comes with a HUD loaded with bold jewel tone colors.

The mask, lipstick, eyes, tattoos, mesh collar & cuffs are all market freebies.
Dark Desires
N-Core’s Ciara Strappy Edition heels in black put the finishing touch on today’s outfit. Be warned:  THEY ARE NOT COMPLETELY FREE.  The Ciara Heels are a free group gift.  However, the group join fee is 199L.

Normally we don’t mention items that cost in All Spiffed Up posts.  Occasionally though, we find a store that deserves an honorable mention.  The owners of N-Core not only sell great products, but are also wonderfully generous with freebies for their group members.  The free N-Core group gifts make the join fee well worth the price.

Happy Weekend everyone!  It’s time to head on over to Legendaire.  Once again the creators at Legendaire have temporarily set their group join fee to 0L.  So if you have not joined yet, now is the time!

Legendaire has sent several members of  team All Spiffed Up into a freebie collecting frenzy.  Not only have they reduced the group join fee, but, and this is a biggie, they have put out loads of GRRRRRRREAT group gifts.
Pop Culture
Since we’ve been shopping at Legendaire there are always two free gifts at the main entrance.  The gift to the left is a free gift for the group SLF & O.  Which of course happens to be free to join.

On the right is the free with a capital “F” gift.  What do we mean? Simple it is a gift that anyone can take without having to join a group.  Iona actually popped by Legendaire to model those two freebies for today’s blog when she discovered it’s a free group join weekend with  tons of bonus group gifts.
Pop Culture
Iona’s glasses and earrings are wonderful gifts that can be found at Since 1975.  The wall of freebies combined with a 0L group join fee make Since 1975 a worthwhile stop.

Makeup, tattoos, bangles, and the necklace can all be found in the Second Life Marketplace. The bangles and necklace are copy/mod which allowed Iona to intensify and change the colors to suit her outfit.

I Want Candy

I Want Candy
Craving sweets?  No problem, the marketplace is full of all kinds of free tasty treasures.  Ring pops, lollipops, muffins, cookies, if you can think of it you can probably find at least one freebie.

I Want Candy
Of course, you’ll need an outfit to pair with your sweets.  You wouldn’t want to be banned from your favorite sim for showing up wearing only a lolly.  Luckily FLG & No Cabide have loads of free outfits to pick from.

Our model Lucy is wearing the FLG Rock Girl dress.  The color change HUD offers a very nice variety of color changes perfect for the “back to school” crowd.

I Want Candy
Lucy found a fun selection of accessories in the marketplace.

Unfortunately, the marketplace store, Candy Crunchers,  that actually inspired this post updated their offerings two days ago removing their fabulous whimsical freebies.  When I went to verify the freebie links I got nothing.  I even tried to visit the in-world store and  got nothing but air…literally.  I’m sorry to say the cute plushie, choker, and kitty ribbon bracelets are no longer available.

The moral of today’s post:  WHEN YOU SEE A GREAT FREEBIE SNAP IT UP ASAP!!!!

Don’t put it in your basket and wait to checkout on a later day.   Many stores giving 0L items tend to give the freebie in one color per marketplace listing.  Don’t simply buy the color you intend to wear.  If you like something and it’s free grab it right away in every color.

I Want Candy

Lucy started and finished today’s ensemble with items from The Free DoveSentinus Hair and Marquesse supplied the hair and boots.

Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away (closeup)
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.

Cabal’s Gift Card Purchase:

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.

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.

Pump It Up! (face)
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.

Everley’s Style Card:

HAIR – Truth Hair  Kizzy Group Gift – Multi Color Hud (group gift 0L/0L to join)

Up Up and Away

Up Up and Away cover
In a hurry to get out and about in SL?   We’ve got a no-brainer outfit guaranteed to slash your dressing time today!  Simply teleport over to R&R Swag, join their group and grab the Meadow Outfit (white).

The Meadow Outfit comes complete with top, pants, sandals, necklace and bracelet.  Meadow sizes include most of the various mesh bodies along with standard sizes.  The sandals are sized for Slink feet only.

Up Up and Away front
The embroidered details are a charming touch.

Up Up and Away back
The sweet jewelry is non-rigged making positioning quite easy.

Today’s featured hair is a fun throwback to the 80s found in Analog Dog’s current freeball.

The eyes are a great group gift from Avi-Glam.  They come in 8 shades with your choice of either standard system eyes or a mesh set with a color changing HUD.

Up Up and Away face
And…for everyone out there that has yet to change over to a mesh head, we’ve got a nice standard skin from Mother Goose’s.  Yes, Mother Goose’s is still in world!  Better yet, they still have 2 pillars worth of fast changing Lucky Boards.  No group join necessary.

Personally, I love the mesh bodies. But, I have yet to adopt a mesh head.  The nice thing about not using a mesh head is that all of your fun old style skins can be worn with your mesh body.

What?  Wait you say… you can’t put those old skins on your nice new mesh body unless the company makes appliers for you.   Yes that is true, but you don’t need specialty appliers.  Simply wear the skin with the face you like, layer on all the extra makeup you love, and then use your mesh body’s skin hud and match the body’s skin tone to your face.  No one will ever know the difference.

If that sounds like something that appeals to you, then I highly recommend popping over to Mother Goose’s and picking up a bunch of the Lucky Board skins for yourself.  Who knows how long these old skins will be available.

Rounding out our ensemble is a lovely pair of gladiator style sandals that come boxed with the Meadow Outfit.  These sandals are quite nice, and highly detailed.

Good Day Sunshine

Good Day Sunshine
What could be finer than a sunny morning in the tropics?   A sunny morning in the tropics with a Siamese of course!  Iona went to Bipolar Kitty in search of a new outfit and walked away, grinning like a loon, with a new pet accessory.  It’s definitely the little things that keep SL interesting.

Good Day Sunshine
How can you resist that face?… and all of that plush hand tooled Italian leather?

Good Day Sunshine
These sweet floral capris are one of many group gifts to be found at WellMade.

Good Day Sunshine
We especially like how the ties and bows detailing adds a bit of flirty charm to the outfit.

Good Day Sunshine
Let’s talk about the t-shirts.  Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, Iona is modeling 3 different tops.  Blueberry is probably one of team All Spiffed Up’s favorite stores.
The designers at Blueberry know their stuff.  Their texturing is terrific.

Good Day Sunshine
The t-shirts modeled today are actually two separate group gifts.  The green lace t-shirt is packaged with a long and short version.  The pumpkin side-tied t-shirt is the October gift. Best of all, both gifts come with fantastic color changing HUDS.

Though Blueberry’s group has a modest 20L join fee, both of these gifts can be picked up by anyone for free.  Simply stand in front of the group gift wall and hover your mouse over the gifts.  When your mouse changes to the pay icon, those are the gifts anyone can buy for 0L.

Good Day Sunshine
Iona’s hair can be found in the current freeball at Analog Dog.

The necklace and eyes are marketplace finds.

Good Day Sunshine
These babies are just sooooooooooo yummy!  KC Couture steals our breath away once again with these unique wedge heels.  As always, the HUD included with these babies allows the user to customize the main leather, the wedge, and the metal.  Thank you KC, thank you very much!

*Keep in mind Mimosa Beach is a role play sim thus, has a dress code of bathing suits and/or nudity.  We’re not exactly sure how Iona sweet talked her way onto the sim for the photo shoot, but we’re glad she did.

 

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.
