ASU - Oct CBF2
This lovely skin from Mert & BusenuR is a phenomenal gift.  It includes system layers for classic avatars, and a bunch of specialized appliers, plus the all purpose Omega applier.  Not only that, the package includes no brow and cleavage options.

I love these subtly macabre spider web eyes from LadyBunny. The included appliers work great.  However, it’s also wonderful to know the box contains both mesh and system eyes. Thanks LadyBunny for making a product all avatars can enjoy!

And that’s a wrap.  Until next time, shop happy.

Last September I had a dream.  Granted it was a very small dream, but it was filled with free jeans, tees, hoodies, sneakers, and the kind of flowing long hairstyles school girls love.   Of course, after days of frustrating freebie hunting my dream was unceremoniously dashed.  I simply couldn’t find the kind of freebies I like to fill that virtual back-to-school shopping list glimmering in my mind’s eye.

My friends, that story will not be repeated this year!  Casual clothing lovers and virtual students, this series of posts are for you.

Our first outfit is sensibly fashionable, comfortable, and perfectly suited for those mad dashes across campus. The backpack is copy/mod which allows for easy resizing, and personalized color changes.

Keds fans will adore these wonderful little sneakers.  They’re copy/mod for easy resize/recoloring.  Plus, the faces are numerous, making recoloring a joyous task. 

Tune in tomorrow for Back to School – Part Deux!

FYI:  Today’s look could be the new you!  This entire avatar, from head to toe, is free.  The mesh head/body is none other than the lovely Valentina gift from Altamura to Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios.  I even found a skirt at Kamiri that includes a mesh model specifically for the Altamura body.  Of course, the Kina miniskirt is also sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, eBODY Curvy, and TMP bodies.

Here’s a nice closeup of those feline eyes.  They come with an eight color HUD.  Catwa and Omega compatible head wearers can use the included appliers.  Everyone else can wear the mesh eyes controlled by a color change HUD.

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.

All About the Legs

ASU - 2-20-19

HAIR|Queenz .Jade Hair – rigged/unrigged w/7 color HUDs (GG/free)

| DRESS|Queenz .Promise Gown – 6 color HUD + sleeveless option; sized for mesh bodies (GG/free)

| MANICURE |Livia .Metallics NO.1 Mesh Bento Nails – HUD w/3 polish colors & styles; Maitreya/Slink/eBody/Tonic (GG/free)
| SHOES|Ellnique Designs .October gift – basic black heels; Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

Sometimes ballrooms and their dress codes can be so very dull. That’s why I just love this gown from Queenz!  Instead of being a standard somewhat boring floor length gown, it features nearly scandalous slits that flash a whole lot of leg while managing to cover all the naughty bits.  As an added bonus, wearers can choose whether or not they wear the sleeves.
If you’re worried about accidentally being a flasher while busting a move, you can pair the gown with one of the best gifts on the grid.  What you ask could that possibly be?  Kaithleen’s Universal Thong group gift!  This thong fits mesh bodies like a glove, and remains hidden under most meshes.
ASU - 2-20-19hands
Pop by Livia to get these wonderfully pointy Bento rigged mesh fingernails.  They come in 3 shades, with 3 styles.
Remember, all of the stores featured in today’s outfit have groups that are free to join and offer several past gifts.  Which means lots of goodies to keep you shopping happy. Enjoy!

It’s true, I’ll admit it.  I’m just as crazy as the next girl ’bout a sharp dressed man!  If you’re a male avatar that favors a slim legged shape then this suit is for you.  Of course if suits aren’t your thing, you’ll find lots of other great articles of clothing at Gabriel’s 1 Linden sale.

The suit comes in 4 sizes: XS, S, M, L/XL plus an alpha for classic avatars.

Here’s a closer look at the detailing.

Our model popped over to the Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios sim and found these dress shoes.  They come in brown, which really didn’t work with this suit.  Luckily, they are modifiable, so Cabal added a light blue tint to turn them black allowing for the detailed lighting to remain.  Keep us runnin’ guys!
