Romeo & Juliet

OUTFIT|Ebento .Altamura.Romeo & Juliet – 2 Separate gifts - each a FULL Mesh body (free)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Run over to Ebento to get these fabulous mesh bodies with fully loaded HUDs.   They will only be available today, February 14th.   To receive Romeo join the eBento Lovers group, then pay 1L (it will be reimbursed).

Juliet is free for Altamura group members.  Joining Altamura’s group cost 50L.  Folks it is totally worth joining this group!  Juliet is gorgeous and fully functional.  If you don’t have a mesh body this is your chance to get a great body that would normally cost close to 5,000 Lindens.

I can’t say enough nice things about Altamura.  Thanks guys from making our Valentine’s Day!

These fun heart embellished ankle boots are a perfect addition to your Valentine’s Day wardrobe.  You’ll find them in the group gift area at Wellmade.  As always there is no join fee for this group.  Plus, you’ll be happily surprised to find lots of nice past group gifts also available.

Until next time, happy shopping.

SUIT |Gabriel .Stripe 3piece suit – dark gray + alpha 4 sizes (sale/1L)
SHOE |Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios .Shoe-ddict.dress shoe – brown + alpha (free)

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.

ASU - 1Lback

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!

So Fluffy!

Prepare yourselves for another wild fit of box opening.  Designer’s Showcase is celebrating their 8th anniversary round!  And, birthday/anniversary rounds mean loads of great free gifts.

ASU - Glitterdress

I was so blown away by JUMO’s dazzlingly shiny silver gown that I almost missed the  sumptuous grey stole tucked into the box.  I know, hard to believe but true.  The photo shoot was completed, and I was double checking the box for a possible alpha when I noticed a fitmesh + 5 standard sized models with the word fur in their descriptions.

OMG! It’s sooooooo FLUFFY!  Did I mention no animals, virtual or otherwise, were harmed in the creation of this stole?  The textures on this entire gift are outstanding.  Thanks JUMO for such an amazing gift.

ASU - Glitterxtra

The featured earrings and eyes can also be found at Designer’s Showcase.  The mesh eyes are a gift from Dulce Secrets.  They come in 3 shades and are boxed with system eyes, mesh eyes, and Catwa/Lelutka appliers.

If you wear Maitreya/Slink/Belleza feet be sure to visit Hilly Haalan for today’s heels.  The 30 shades packed into their HUD make them a must have item.


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the jewelry to the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet are 100% free.  Thanks to the generosity of Altamura, transitioning to mesh couldn’t be easier.

BODY |Altamura .Clodet – mesh body w/AO & alpha HUDs (TeleportHub GG/10L group join fee)


With over a hundred free gifts just waiting to be snatched up it’s no wonder I’m still shopping & hopping!  The Shop & Hop event definitely requires more than one visit to gather all the fantastic gifts offered.

ASU - Casually Festiveback

To add this tastefully sequined gray sweater to your wardrobe you’ll have to pry yourself away from Shop & Hop, and teleport to Hilly Haalan.  Join the store’s free group, then saunter over to the gift room to pick up this beauty.  It comes in black and gray, and can be worn by both classic and mesh avatars.  It adds just enough sparkle to keep the festive flow of the holidays twinkling though to the New Year.

ASU - Casually Festiveface4

This lovely lady is my favorite Altamura gift body to date.  Clodet’s mostly oval jawline coupled with ultra glamorous eyelashes and the subtlest icy pink lips are simply stunning!  If you favor a light sallow skin color, Clodet is more than worth the 10 Linden group join fee for the TeleportHub.

Cubic Cherry’s Nemune mesh eyes look great on Clodet.  Nemune eyes come in 8 shades plus they have additional shadows and Omega applier HUDs.

Fans of pigtail hairstyles will love this fatpack from bonbon.  The style comes with an additional candy bow HUD (not pictured) that allows the wearer to show or hide the ribbons.  Until next time, shop happy!

Great Gifts!

SHOE |SL Marketplace .Duh!.engineer boots – wearable demo Tan (free)


** This body was completely free earlier this year during the WOH hunt.  It is now free for members of the Altamura group.  For the 2018 holiday season Altamura has reduced their group join fee to 25 Lindens.**

BODY |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle – mesh body w/AO & alpha HUDs (GG/25L temporary group join fee)
MAKEUP |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle lipstick – 4 colors (GG/25L temporary group join fee)


I have three little words to inspire you to get over to the Shop & Hop Event before it ends:  Blueberry store credit!  That’s 250 Lindens worth of a store credit to be exact.  It’s the perfect amount to add an item in your favorite Blueberry color to your wardrobe.

ASU - Great Giftsfb

This is Blueberry’s Laura outfit that comes boxed as two separates.  Separates are especially nice to have when dressing non Belleza/Maitreya/&Slink bodies.  Today’s model is wearing Emanuelle, a past WOH gift body from Altamura.  While dressing she found the dress sized for Maitreya fit the lower body best.  However, the cropped sweater sized for Slink fit her chest and shoulders best.  So, don’t be afraid to mix and match mesh clothing to get the best look on bodies not supported by your favorite designers.

ASU - Great Giftsff

Zip over to NYNE to pickup this fun winter hairdo.  Simply join their free group to get the Cicil hair.  It comes with a nice color picker HUD, allowing for virtually unlimited colors.  Also, if you wander to the back of the store you’ll find several shelves of past gifts.

Finish off this look with a wearable demo from Duh! found in the marketplace.  The boots can be resized, and positioned to achieve a perfect fit.  Happy shopping everyone!

HEAD |Altamura .12 Days of XMAS – Leila head Omega compatible (GG/25L to join)

With so many wonderful free events going on across the grid it’s easy to miss out on a load of excellent goodies.  I’ve been so focused on checking out advent calendars I almost missed a giant winter shopping event organized by the Lindens.

The Shop & Hop Event has 100 stores spread out over 5 sims:

And, as you may have guessed, each store has set out one completely free (no group join required) gift.  Shop & Hop runs through January 4, 2019.  So, gather your shopping bags together and shop happy!

ASU - XMAS event face

Here’s a closeup of a few of the Shop & Hop jewelry gifts and the gift from Vanity Hair.

Though it will cost you 25 Lindens to join the group, this is Altamura’s Leila (12 Days of Chrismas) group gift.  She is quite lovely as is (pictured above), however she’s also Omega compatible.  A quick visit to Omega Solutions to purchase the Omega Applier HUD for 99 Lindens will leave you with lovely bento rigged mesh head that only cost 124 Lindens total.

Leila, does not come with a HUD controller, but it’s not necessary.  Altamura supplies an easy to follow notecard with links for free eyes and free applier clearing HUDs that make changing skins a snap.

ASU - XMAS faceapps

Above is a picture of Leila wearing applier skins from 7 Deadly Skins.  I was a bit skeptical when I realized Leila didn’t come with a HUD interface of her own.  But, after working with her for literally no more than 10 minutes, I realized a HUD simply isn’t necessary.  And, in some ways it’s a lot easier adding your makeup without using a cumbersome HUD.

Let’s finish off with a closeup of Momento’s Shop & Hop shoe gift.  Happy Christmas Eve everyone.  Enjoy!

Advent Me!

BODY |London City .Altamura.Jenny – Mesh Avatar w/HUDs (free)
HAIR |.EscalateD. .Advent Calendar Day 17 – Malory hair w/HUDs (GG/free)
OUTFIT |Emerald Couture .Advent Gift – So Wrong It’s Wright outfit (free)

Advent calendars are fantastic, frustrating, and festive all at the same time.  I love getting daily gifts, hate when I miss a day, then squeal with merriment every time I cobble an outfit together.  What can I say?  It’s an advent thing.

Luckily for us, there are quite a few advent calendars out there that allow us to open up missed days with having to pay for the privilege.  The first one I visited  is at Emerald Couture (EC).  EC has two advent calendars.  One of which is free for all visitors, and allows the collecting of missed days.  That is where you’ll find today’s cocktail dress, heels (sized for Slink high feet), head piece, and jewelry (not shown).

EC’s free advent calendar is great for anyone with Slink compatible feet, classic avatars (required alphas always supplied), and lovers of older style flexi flounced gowns that have been remastered with appliers.  Thanks EC for thoughtfully including all avatars in the holiday fun!

ASU - Sophiaface4

Hair lovers prepare to go into a box opening frenzy after you visit EscalateD.  Simply join EscalateD’s free to join group then get ready for a lot of clicking.  Their advent calendar also allows the picking up of past gifts.  Each hair comes with the winter color HUD, and many come with style HUDs too.  Seriously, try not to hyperventilate with all that silky goodness.  Thanks so much EscalateD for your generosity, a good free hair is hard to find.

Here’s a closeup of the heels included in Emerald Couture’s outfit.  The vivid print would also pair nicely with many outfits – i.e. skinny jeans and an angora sweater.


Now for the free & not quite free (but well worth the buy-in price) share.
… is hands down the most generous mesh body designer on the grid! There are currently 6 completely free Altamura mesh body/head combo avatars available on the grid.  3 are male, and 3 are female.  Simply visit Altamura’s main store to get the landmarks to these completely free avatars.

While you’re at the main store you should seriously consider joining Altamura’s group.  The join fee has been reduced to 25 Lindens for their 12 Days of Christmas gift event.  Reducing a group join fee during a gift event is practically unheard of!  Most stores I frequent increase the join fees during gift giving periods.

As a group member you’ll be able to collect both the upcoming and the past gifts from the 12 Days of Christmas event.  Did I mention the free bento mesh heads in the event?

I’ve been hunting freebies for All Spiffed Up for almost 3 years now, and though my avatar wears a different (not free) body and head as her default look, working with the Altamura free bodies has slowly made me a huge fan of their work.  I’m only sorry I didn’t know about Altamura when I bought my body.

My point:  if you are a classic avatar that has no interest in changing your skin, or changing your look with makeup then I highly recommend choosing one of the free Altamura avatars that is available.  The alpha system included with the Altamura free body is infinitely better than the alpha system that came with my expensive (well over due for an update) other brand body.  And, Altamura bodies have Slink compatible feet!  Think of all the lovely free shoes you’ll be able to wear.

Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to transition into using a bento avatar.  Plus, if you join the group not only will you have access to loads of gifts throughout the year, but you’ll be supporting one of the most generous and helpful creators in Second Life.
