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.

The embroidered details are a charming touch.

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.

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!

Lucy Does Gacha

Lucy Does Gacha cover
Happy Weekend everyone!  We’ve got great news…The Gacha Garden is NOW open!  This round marks the Garden’s 2nd Birthday, and they are celebrating in a big way.

The event features over a 100 new gachas and tons of free gifts.  It took poor Lucy 2 days to sort through all the freebies.

Lucy picked her favorites to share with all of you.  Almost all of the gifts pictured here can be resized.  Which is exactly what Lucy did to the Moonicorn and Teddy Bear Rug.

Lucy Does Gacha detail
There is a little something for everyone at the Gacha Garden.  Lucy found several nice hairstyles, a great little dress, a crown, and a sweet necklace on top of all the fun furnishings.

Lucy Does Gacha back
Lucy also found a nice modifiable fox tail in the marketplace, and colored it to match her hair.

Lucy Does Gacha shoe
To complete the outfit Lucy scoured the marketplace and found the perfect boots in a Fizz Bomb & Pom Poms outfit freebie.

TIP:  Keep an open mind when looking at freebie outfits in the marketplace.  The outfit style at first glance may not appeal to you, however the accessories included in the box can turn out to be real gems.

So Happy Together

Happy Together Cover
We’ve got men, hallelujah!

It took a bit of cajoling, a keg of beer, and a whole lot of scantily clad pole dancing to rope the guys in.  But, rope them in we did.

Meet Wolfgang, the first male member of Team All Spiffed Up.  Wolf’s been in SL for over four years and shockingly has under 500 items in his inventory.  Needless to say, his wardrobe is scary sparse.  Have no fear Wolf, we’ll spiff you up in no time!

Happy Together fronts
We found these wonderful his & hers outfits at GizzA Creations.  If you’ve never been to GizzA then you need to plan a visit ASAP.  Their Group is free to join and they offer a very nice assortment of free gifts for males and females.

Wolf’s suit is especially well suited for guys that can’t stand spending time dressing.  Simply pick your size then add the the outfit (and the alpha if using a system body).  2 clicks at most and you’ll be wearing slacks, blazer, shirt, and scarf.

Happy Together Wback
Both of our models are wearing free skins from 7 Deadly S{k}ins‘ recent Summer Sizzler Hunt.  Unfortunately, the hunt ended  early in the week.  All is not lost though, 7 Deadly S{k}ins has two Midnight Mania boards and two lucky chairs that anyone visiting the sim can use.

There are many more Mini Mania boards and a monthly group gift for… you guessed it, 7 Deadly S{k}ins group members.  Membership is NOT free.  However the quality and artistry of the skins makes the price well worth joining.   If you really can’t spare the lindens don’t worry, periodically 7 Deadly S{k}ins waves their group join fee.  Patience grasshopper it will happen.

Happy Together Gback
Our incredibly healthy Agave plant can be found in SimPro Designs marketplace store.

Happy Together Wolf
Wolf’s hair is a freebie that can be found at the Exile main store.  Exile packed the full range of their color huds in the gift box which is awesome.

Happy Together Gemma
Gemma is back sporting a new more sophisticated makeover from 7 Deadly S{k}ins.  The pictured hair is a wearable color demo gift from [elikatira] at the Hair Fair 2017.

Happy Together gshoes
Once again .:KC:. Couture rounds out our female model’s outfit with another outstanding set of heels! I simply love the color huds .:KC:. uses.  This hud allows the wearer to change the shoe body, metal, heel accent, sole, and heal base colors.

.:KC:. Couture understands the VALUE of an excellent freebie.  A fully featured freebie is a terrific stepping stone to obtaining new paying customers. I can’t tell you how many SL stores get me to actually part with my lindens because of a great free gift they gave.  [AdN], Mystic Hope, Analog Dog, GizzA Creations, !!Calico Ingmann Creations!!, The White Armory, and Love Cats are a few fabulous stores that have great quality merchandise and also give fantastic free gifts.  Thanks creators for glamorizing this crazed fashionista’s Second Life!

I’m So Scared

I'm So Scared

I love Halloween in Second Life!  So many spooky sims, so many cool Hunts, so many awesome prizes, it makes me dizzy just thinking about it.  Imagine Scrat from Ice Age morphed into a freebie obsessed avatar, that is the kind of frenzied mindset this ghoulish bounty creates.

Hunts, oh how I love to hate them.  Who doesn’t love finding a hidden object? The operative word here is FINDING.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a “gotta have it or I’m gonna die” hunt item blogged, and found myself at the sim utterly frustrated finding every hidden object except the one I went there for. Such is the nature of hunting.

Have no fear dear readers both hunt items in this post are quite easy to find.  You’ll leave the hunting grounds lighthearted sporting a ghoulish grin.  So let’s take a closer look at what Iona is wearing.

Outfit

The Skyler Hoodie from Ollies Follies along with lots of other goodies can be found at the Timeless Textures Halloween Event. This event is definitely worth a flyby.

The Half’N’Half sweats can be found at the Etchaflesh Halloween Hunt. This is a storewide hunt using a fill card format. Simply pick up & wear the free hunt hud. Find the 12 hunt objects to fill the hud. Then toddle over to the prize kiosk in front of Etchaflesh and select your prize. You can go back once a day to repeat and redeem through October 31st.

Let’s not forget a closeup on Iona’s face.  She is wearing a sexy little beauty marked skin that shouldn’t be missed.

Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch

…with their Chihuahuas!
Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch

Hello Everyone and welcome to the third installment of All Spiffed Up.  It has taken a bit longer to prepare this post than I expected.  As always I like to challenge myself to create scenes filled with only free items.  I ran headlong into trouble when I fixated on a restaurant theme.  It was the food that caused all my troubles!  Finding free food, not 1L food, is not the easiest task.  In the end I settled on low cost full perm food items.

Once I moved past the food snafu, the rest of the scene fell into place. This scene is packed with freebies.  So let’s get to it!

Meet Cindy the ringleader of Club Chihuahua.  Cindy is free from head to toe literally.
Cindy Full Body
Her skin and camisole top are group gifts from AlterEgo & Enertia. At the time of this post AlterEgo’s group was free to join.

The Aaisling Sunkissed skin is an exceptionally nice feature rich gift. Included in the package are: head appliers for Loudmouth, Omegahead, & Tmp; 3 Sunkissed skin options; a skin applier hud that covers almost all of the major mesh bodies and can apply the skin to Slink, Belleza, & Maitreya feet; physics; 5 eyebrow shapers; 2 shapes; an eyelash remover.

As with the skin, the Nikki Cami also comes sized to fit Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, Venus, and Isis mesh bodies.  There are 6 color options available in a no-nonsense hud.  All in all, these are two wonderful gifts. Thank you AlterEgo & Enertia!

Before I move on to the style cards, I’d be remiss if I forgot to introduce our impromptu model Gabby.
Gabby Full Body
You know how Second Life is, VERY social. I always find working in Second Life to be something akin to making the bed when my cat is in the room. It’s a wacky romp filled with distractions! Partway through the photo shoot Gabby decided the sidelines were not for her, she wanted in on the fun. I took one look at her, shook my head, and uttered: “If you want in, you need to wear at least 3 free items, you’ve got 5 minutes!” Surprisingly, Gabby pulled it off in 4.  Cheers to the lady with the fastest clicking fingers in town.

The first thing Gabby did was change her hair to a free one found in the inventory library. For those of us who joined Second Life before the introduction of mesh hair, clothing, bodies, etc… when we think library we think JUNK-forget about it!  This cute flip suggests it’s time to change our ways. The Library is definitely worth a peruse in your spare time. Thanks for the tip Gabby.

I had assembled  a series of cute Chihuahua images that never made it into this post. The light bulb went on and presto, a fun freebie was born.

The All Spiffed Up Version of the Easel includes the original Copy/Mod Artist Easel, and the 4 static Chihuahua easels pictured above plus a 5th animated easel not shown.  So, gather your Chihuahua loving buddies and head to Mr. M’s Creations to get your gift!

“Lucy in the Sky”

Lucy in the Sky

It’s official, the first weekend of Fall arrived. ‘Tis the season of pumpkin spice lattes, fall color, and gourds galore.  I had envisioned a blustery scene featuring an auburn haired avi clad in a boyfriend sweater walking her faithful greyhound in Central Park.

…and then I opened the Ricielli Cosmopolitan Room Birthday Gift!  Whoosh, out went all thoughts of Autumn and in rushed Spring.  Pink always has that effect on me, so it’s no wonder that Ricielli’s sleek pink mini dress hijacked today’s post. Of course a dress alone does not a post make.

Last week I picked up the Daria Avatar from The Free Dove, plucked two makeup layers out of the box, and promptly forgot about all the other goodies included.  Today I thought, let’s see what got skipped.  Lucy, featured in this post, is essentially the Daria Avatar.

This is a fantastic freebie generously donated by You Got the Look by Darla.  The package includes two skin variations, a shape, 8 makeup applications, eyelashes, and Maitreya skin appliers.  Need I say more?  Hit the teleports!

Before I post the style card, I’d like to draw your attention to Lucy’s furry friend Cosmo the Magical Hamster.  He is a copy/mod free shoulder pet I found on marketplace.  I originally intended to enlarge him and use him in the photo shoot.  Poor Cosmo’s scenes got cut, but his horns grabbed my attention.  I was able to detach them from him, and resize them for Lucy.  Voila!  Instant cool horns.  Thanks Cosmo for the inspiration.

“Star Light, Star Bright”

Welcome to All Spiffed Up!  A blog dedicated to creating fashionable avatars in Second Life (SL) for FREE.  Many of the old timers that helped me make my debut would say free is simply not possible in SL.  Like many, I joined SL without a single Linden in my virtual pocket.  And, just like everyone else that came before me I spent hours trying on every scrap of clothing in the default inventory.  My avatar would have cried out at the unfairness of it all if only I could have figured out how to make her do anything other than run into walls and fall into ditches. Oh the joys of being a NOOB.

Luckily, I had friends that took me shopping.  I was gifted a great hair, and a lovely Gothic outfit of my choosing then promptly told to go buy myself an AO, a high quality skin, a shape, eyes, and “for goodness sake a decent pair of shoes!”  Apparently my Freebie Dungeon clunky prim boots were wholly unacceptable.

So I took their advice, set out on a whirlwind shopping trip, spent approximately $25 USD and ended up with a good looking, smooth moving avatar.  Of course that initial expenditure was just the tip of the iceberg.

Am I complaining? No.  Have I, over my five years in SL, learned how to dress my avatar for free?  ABSOLUTELY!  So, without further ado let’s get down to business.

Star Light, Star Bright

A great free gown is hard to find.  Or is it?  This lovely magenta gown is to die for and free, free, free.  I’m only sorry I didn’t think to get a closeup of my avi’s derriere.   The texturing is so detailed that you can see a faint panty line under the shimmering satin.  It is almost embarrassing how often I find myself looking at that panty line.

Moving on… the Drew gown in magenta for The Free Dove comes in 5 standard sizes with alphas.  Included in the box but not shown is a pair of black gloves with an Omega applier. PurpleMoon Creations really outdid themselves with this gown.
