December is one of the best months for freebie hunting in Second Life!  The grid is teaming with gifts.  Advent Calendars, hunts, special store Christmas gifts, and holiday events make living large something everyone, regardless of their budget can do.

I recently discovered Applique Chic when I was out scouting advent calendars.  This store has two free advent calendars.  That’s a set of gifts for male and female avatars.  As an added bonus, the Applique Chic group is free to join, has a bank of lucky chairs, several daily manias for all to enjoy.

Today’s cozy sweater and skirt outfit is currently a daily mania gift that only needs 25 people to slap the board.  So, gather up your friends and head over to Applique Chic, it’s well worth the teleport.

Completing today’s look requires two more teleports.  This cute little necklace is one of many gifts at the Winter Dreams Market. You’ll find lots of great gifts circling around the train decor.  Most of the gifts are free, however some aren’t, so be careful with the wild clicking.  While at the market be sure to check out their advent calendar.

Our last stop is FaMESHed.  The December 2019 round is in full swing, and let me tell you, it is loaded with awesome gifts! Today’s hairstyle, boots, buttons, and Bento rings are all booth gifts at FaMESHed.

And that my friends is a wrap.  Shop happy everyone!

Each of today’s looks features a different tone from the Camila Hair color HUD.  Not only does the HUD include 10 shaded textures, but it also has a tint picker area allowing for tons of variations.  Thanks Limerence for a great gift.
ASU - NMay3face
You’ll find this fun baby-bracelet styled necklace along with many other free and 1L items in the Broken Princess Marketplace store.
FYI:  Today’s looks could be the new you!  This entire avatar, from head to toe, is free.  All of the clothing and accessories were free gifts from groups with NO join fees.  The mesh head/body is the curiously cute Jenny gift from Altamura to the London City Sim.  Altamura’s gift bodies come with a wonderful alpha system, Slink compatible feet, and face and hand AO’s.  They are a perfect starter mesh body.  However, if you have no interest in changing your makeup, skintone, or wearing applier clothing, then they are simply perfect bodies.  The included shape is copy/mod, so you can reshape the body and face to suit your personal preferences.
Until next time, shop happy!

Back to School

ASU - Back to School cover
Joy of joys, we’ve finally assembled a Back-to-School outfit.  It has been a process that has left the All Spiffed Up studio littered with torn shopping bags, a few broken nails, and lots of outfits best suited for campus life in the animated series Bible Black.  That wasn’t quite the look we wanted to send our model to her first week of school in.
Thanks to the special gift round of On9 we were able to make this post happen.  Almost all of the 30 plus designers featured at On9 have put out a completely free (0L) no group required gift.  Find your happy place, pop over to On9.
Let’s start with the Sweet Cookie gift from BESHA&Loki. This prop/pose gift is fun, tasty, and calorie free.
ASU - Back to Schoolfront
The centerpiece of today’s outfit is the Kanatan Backpack/Sweater from KiB Designs.  This sweater is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies only.  That being said, this is a large oversized sweater.  It easily fit over a standard large mesh skirt  which certainly means a classic avatar will have no problem wearing it too.  It may be necessary to hide the arms, but any sweatshirt or long sleeved top alpha should solve the problem.
We paired Kanatan with a skirt taken from a great freebie set in EXTAL’s marketplace store.
ASU - Back to Schoolback
Here’s a back view showcasing the backpack.  Thanks KiB for a great gift!

These funky retro-ish glasses can be found at NYNE’s On9 booth.  They don’t come with a HUD, but they are copy/mod so you can easily color them any shade you desire in edit mode.
This gorgeous hairstyle is one of the many fantastic prizes currently available on Olive Hair’s lucky boards.  If you decide to do some shopping at Olive, this color is  in the Bubble Goth HUD.
ASU - Back To School Earring
NaaNaa’s Accessories supplied the Magic earrings.  They are resizable, and come with a 4 color HUD.
ASU - Back to Schoolnose
Everyone needs a diamond encrusted septum ring!  The designers at Dreamlight understand this hunger and thoughtfully packaged one in their On9 gift box.
ASU - Back to Schoolfingernails
Quite possibly the most versatile On9 gift is at SLACKGIRL’S booth.  The Azzurra Bento Mesh Nails are high quality neutrally toned fingernails that leave the wearer lusting after more color options.  Best of all SLACKGIRL has thoughtfully rigged them for Maitreya, Tuty, Belleza, Altamura, Eve, Tonic, Slink, and Vista hands.
For everyone out there wearing any of the gift Altamura bodies, this is your chance to pickup a nice perfectly fitted new manicure.

Georgia on My Mind

ASU - FaMeshed2
Thanks to the September round of FaMESHed I can’t seam to get Ms. O’Keeffe and Willie Nelson out of my head.  I blame the insanity on Belle Epoque for putting such a fabulous O’Keeffesque gift out at FaMESHed.
The Nerea Headpiece comes with an 8 color HUD that allows for changing the center and outer petals either together or independently.
ASU - fameshed2back1
This wonderful catsuit is Kaithleen’s contribution to the FaMESHed gift wagon.  It is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies. The catsuit’s base color is Rose and cannot be changed.  However, the stripes, straps, and zipper are controlled by a HUD that offers 19 color options for the stripes and straps, and 3 metal options for the zipper.
ASU - Fameshed2flower
Here’s a closeup of the headpiece and a sneak peek at the gift from Empyrean Forge (EF).
Today’s casual up-do is a Midnight Mania fatpack gift from Olive Hair.  Though this hair is not on today’s board it will rotate back in.  Olive currently uses 7 fatpacks that are rotated for the daily mania, so if  you miss one simply keep dropping by until it is featured again.
ASU - Fameshed2necklace
Empyrean Forge’s Serenity necklace is unrigged for easy repositioning and includes a 7 color HUD with 2 metal finishes. It’s a lovely versatile gift, thanks EF!
