…and the Hunt Goes On

ASU - andhuntCOVER

Yep, we’re still sleuthing our way through the SL F&O Hunt list for goodies.  The good news is the hunt runs through November 25th, so you still have time to find everything then have a quick rest before the Christmas advent calendars start in earnest.

Today’s outfit is StormCrow Designs contribution to the hunt.  The gift box includes the sweater, jeans, and boots as separates.  The sweater comes with a nice color HUD.  All of the items are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.

Big hair fans are going to love the BlueBell ponytail from .EscalateD.  It comes with color  HUDs that are just plain fun.

Is it just me, or do those planets look curiously similar to pressed powder eyeshadow?  I have a sneaking suspicion our Iona is deviating from the lesson plan.

Musing aside, we’ve got a few nice finds to brighten up your Monday. So let’s get down to business.

ASU - Astronomy101back

Team All Spiffed Up discovered Safira this weekend.  Safira is a wonderful store run by generous owners.  Safira’s group gift wall is loaded with great items all of which are free

Iona chose to model Safira’s Noa dress.  Noa comes with a 6 color HUD sized for Slink Physique.  If you wear a different mesh body, don’t worry as long as you have a detailed alpha system you’ll be fine.  Iona wears Maitreya’s Lara body, and with a little trial and error on the leg alphas she was able to get the perfect fit.

ASU - Astronomy101eyeclosed

Look at the lovely shading in this eyeshadow!  It’s one of 12 great colorways featured in the Paulie gift set in Zibska’s marketplace store.  The set is packaged with mesh appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega systems.  Best of all, it’s free!

ASU - Anatomy101face

Under the Paulie eyeshadow applier is the Blair skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins (7DS) Blair was recently a Midnight Mania gift.  Though you won’t be able to pickup Blair today, you can slap both of the free Midnight Mania boards located on the wall behind the main desk.

After you click the Midnight Manias pan left and check out the gift boxes. 7DS supports several shopping groups with nice gifts.

Crowning it all off is Summer, another great Lucky Board gift from Olive Hair.  This gift features the blondes HUD, has a streaks option, and comes with rigged and unrigged models.

ASU - Astronomy101shoe

These yummy espadrilles are still available at C&S.  They are sized for Slink/Maitreya feet, and come with a 40 color HUD that allows for overall color changes or separate colored laces.  You’ll find these beauties on the second floor.

ASU - Astronomyplanets

This fun 3D solar system picture is the September group gift at MUSU.  It also comes boxed with a smaller solar system compact.  The compact so strongly resembles holiday makeup sets purchased at a cosmetic counter that our poor Iona simply could not believe it wasn’t an actual applier gift.  She kept unpacking the original box thinking an applier set would be delivered.  Needless to say, that didn’t happen because this wonderfully quirky gift is a DECOR item only.

Iona’s Style Card:

HAIR – Olive Summer Hair – Blondes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)

SKIN – 7 Deadly s[K]ins Blair Skin – in cotton candy (Midnight Mania/0L)

DRESS – Safira Noa dress – fits Slink Physique, 6 color HUD (group gift 0L/0L to join)

Happy Tuesday!

After a wild week of crazy hunting and seemingly endless unpacking we’ve put together a little something special for you that requires a minimum of fuss to assemble.  In 2 teleports you’ll have a new outfit.  Add a 3rd teleport for a new hairdo.  The 4th and final teleport will give mesh body & head wearers a new skin.

ASU - SS coverback

Hilly Haalan put out 2 new group gifts yesterday.  They are lovely, for both mesh and classic avatars, and FREE.  Simply join Hilly Haalan’s free group and this beautifully textured top/skirt combo is yours.  The set includes a HUD with 10 distinct looks.  They are so nice we felt compelled to show them all.  Thanks Hilly Haalen, you made our day!

ASU - SS boot side

Next stop, Moda.  The Denise special edition boots are a true freebie, no group join required.  They are sized for mesh bodies, and include a color change HUD with 3 denim shades, and floral, leopard, and zebra options.

ASU - SS 7DS skinface

Head over to Olive for this chic variation of the classic ponytail.  The Lizzie hair in brunettes is currently one of Olive’s Lucky Board gifts.  This hair is just too fun.  Using the HUD’s streak option allows for the two-toned styling pictured above.  Stick to the main color selection for an even overall color if you prefer a more conservative look.

Olive’s Lucky Boards are free for any visitor to use, change often, and are loaded with fun styles that are often accompanied with whimsical options.  While you’re there don’t forget to slap that Midnight Mania!

ASU - SS 7DS skinfront

Mesh body and skin wearers that missed 7 Deadly s[K]ins‘ (7DS) Yoga skin gift at the May eBento round have another chance to get it in the caramel tone.  It will take a little searching at the 7DS sim and finding the sunflower, but it’s well worth the effort.  The Sunflower Hunt runs through August 25th, so you’ve got plenty of time to find this beautiful skin.

Iona’s Style Card:

HAIR – Olive Lizzie Hair – Brunettes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)

SKIN – 7 Deadly s[K]ins Yoga Skin – in caramel/mesh appliers only (Sunflower Hunt/0L)

Several broken nails and countless paper cuts later we’re happy to announce we’ve finally opened all of our Women Only Hunt (WOH) gifts.   The WOH runs through August 18th, so you’ve still got time to collect the goodies.

All items in today’s post except for the flip flops are WOH gifts.

ASU - R&R F&B

The dollfactory’s hunt gift is the Anne shape.  The shape was designed for Slink’s Hourglass body and Catwa’s Lona head.  If your like our model (Dutch) and don’t own either of those items you can still give the shape a try since it is copy/mod.  Dutch was able to use the body portion of the shape “as is”, but did have to make mods to the head/face numbers to get a look that worked for her mesh head. 

Though the halter top and the front tied shirt are two separate gifts from different stores, you’d swear they were made as a set.  They layer together seamlessly.

ASY&Ud-1

7 Deadly Skins gifted the Bali skin in chestnut.  The skin is Omega compatible and comes with a no-brow option!

The black flip flops are  a nice little marketplace freebie.  They come in 4 colors, and though they are packaged for mesh feet they can be worn by classic avatars.

The Mary shorts from Have Unequal have a nice embroidery color change HUD.

Happy August everyone!

The Hashtag District is kicking August off with the UP! SUMMER event.  You’ll have to get a wiggle on if these goodies appeal to you because UP! SUMMER ends on the 15th. Yes there are many “gifts” dotted around the event, however not all are free.  Not to worry, the gifts that are free make UP! SUMMER worth a visit.

Our next Hashtag District find is this lovely set of classic silver hoop earrings from Modern Nostalgia.

This fabulous mop of hair can be found at Olive.  It’s one of many great Lucky Board items.  The letters change fairly fast, and when we check it is very rare to leave Olive without getting at least one great hair.

These luscious red lips are just one of 6 shades included in Livia’s Just Reds group gift.  We blogged this gift last month, click this link for a preview of all the boxed shades.  The gift is still available, and we did neglect to mention one very important tidbit – Just Reds includes appliers for mesh heads AND classic lipstick layers!
ASU - Pergola Days skin
From the delicate facial moles down to our model’s toes Lake, from 7 Deadly Skins, is simply beautiful.  The Lake Skin Box included 6 skin tones each with blonde or black brows, and a cleavage or no cleavage version.  This skin was a recent Midnight Mania gift.  The Midnight Mania boards at 7 Deadly Skins are free for everyone to slap.  If you are skin lover then 7 Deadly Skins is well worth a visit.

Baby's Got Back1
Thank god it’s Friday!  To help kick off your weekend we’ve assembled a sexy little clubbing outfit.  So take tonight off, enjoy, relax, dance your buns off & stuff, because tomorrow starts a busy weekend of freebie collecting.

This is the last weekend of two great freebie gathering events:

  • Hair Fair 2017 – July 1st – 16th
  • Sizzler Summer Hunt –  July 8th – 18th @ 7 Deadly S{k}ins

Let’s start with the gorgeous shimmering mini-dress we found at Attitude Designs. It’s shiny, fun, daring, and free! You’ll find it in the group gifts area along with several other goodies just waiting to join your inventory.

Baby's Got Back2
Our model Gemma is sporting Exile’s flirty & fun Hair Fair gift.  The Judd & Evie Gift contains male and female hair controlled by 10 wonderful color huds.

Evie is pictured above, and Judd is below. Both hair options allow editing, which makes resizing  super simple.  Nice gift Exile, thanks!
Baby's Got Back (Jud)
7 Deadly S{k}ins summer hunt is fairly easy and worth a trip to the sim.  There are 15 0L gifts to be found.  Gemma is modeling the Julya skin.  This skin came with several color and cleavage options. The Julya ad showed teeth, which I didn’t find on the included skins.  Team All Spiffed Up tracked down a teeth tattoo so you too can sport the advertised look.

The box Julya was packed in had the sweetest face modeling the skin.  Our models Iona and Gia tried on Julya, and though the skin is lovely, on them they simply looked like the sophisticated models they are with the addition of freckles.  Their facial features simply didn’t do the skin justice, so I decided to make a shape specifically for our All Spiffed Up readers.  The Gemma shape will be available July 16th at the All Spiffed Up headquarters.

Not all of the 7 Deadly S{k}ins gifts are for females.  Several of the gifts contain male skins.  So round up all of your friends and go find yourselves a makeover!

Gemma’s accessories are all marketplace finds.
