Do You Want to Hear a Secret?

…Let me whisper in your ear.

Or perhaps shout into the metaverse…THE FOLKS AT ALIEN GIZMO ARE GIVING AWAY A 200L GIFT CARD!  As always with these gift cards time is of the essence.  So, to help you get in on a good thing we’re going to keep today’s post short and sweet.

The Alien Gizmo sim has 3 stores plus an outlet.  The gift card works everywhere except in the outlet store.  This gift card is by far the easiest gift card you will ever use.  Anyone visiting the sim can click the display and receive a folder containing the gift card.

Do You Want to Hear a Secret? fronts

Simply wear the card, and click on an item you are interested in.  Ignore the blue popup box, and read the hover text over the gift card.  The hover text will say how much the item is, so it is easy to know if you selected an item at or below the 200L limit.

To buy the item using the card click the buy now button on the gift card located under the picture of the item near the right edge of the card.  Accept the delivered item, detach the card and away you go.

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.

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.

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.

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.

…and for the final listing I present a special FREE gift from All Spiffed Up & Mr M’s Creations to all of my blog readers.

Mr M’s Creations graciously donated the The Artist Easel used in this photo shoot.  It is a wonderful 100% mesh,  1 Land Impact,  Copy/Mod sign.  After a bit of banter back and forth we agreed that it would be great to offer an exclusive All Spiffed Up gift to my readers. 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!
