Some Like it Hot

What could be better than a gorgeous cruelty free sable coat? … A gorgeous FREE sable coat that comes in so many fabulous shades it makes you wish for an endless winter!

This lovely fur is just one of the many items available for free in the The Shops from The Mesh Project.  Before you shout out “I don’t wear the TMP body!” keep in mind this is a coat and it will likely fit whatever body you wear.

To support this claim Team All Spiffed Up asked our model, Valentina, to pickup a few free items from The Shops to try on her Altamura body.  The coat was an easy fit, looks great from all angles, and is definitely worth acquiring.

The top, skirt, and boots required heavy use of Altamura’s alpha system.  So, if you have a body with a great alpha system, like the challenge of making clothing work, then by all means rush over to The Shops for some fantastic freebies!

These lovely drop earrings are a subscriber gift at Zuri Jewelry.

Valentina’s fun hairstyle is one of the many group gifts currently available at NYNE. NYNE tends to package their hairstyles with a rigged and unrigged mesh version.  When you change and tweak your avatar as much as most of the members of Team All Spiffed Up it is especially nice to have hair that can resize.  As always, NYNE’s group is free to join.  Thanks NYNE for keeping SL fashionable!

The Shops Gone Wild

ASU - TheShopsGoneWild cover
It’s time to get your click on!  The Mesh Project’s Shops is having a huge sale.  HUGE as in 100% OFF on all items sold in the Boutique.  That’s right, all clothing, jewelry, handbags, and footwear are free.

This sale is great news for anyone wearing the TMP Beta Free mesh body.  Since the free TMP body has no alpha system, it can be tricky trying to find clothing that fits properly.  So, set aside an hour or two and stock up on essentials tailor made for the TMP Beta Free mesh body.

Our TMP model, Everley, is wearing the Classic Boyfriend Tank, Classic Boyfriend Jeans, Classic Gem Ring, Canvas Studded Sneakers, and the Baciaga Classic Leather Bag.

There are so many lovely color choices to choose from!  Even better, notice how perfectly the top rests over the jeans.

Here’s a closeup of the ring.  Though it can take awhile to become comfortable with using The Mesh Project’s HUD, once it is learned customizing items becomes easy.  This ring allows for changing the metal and the gemstone.

Today’s hair is a newer NYNE group gift.  The Nissa hair comes with a fantastic color picker HUD that allows for recoloring of the hair and bow.  The creators at NYNE are both talented and generous with group gifts.  With a free group join fee, trying a new hairstyle couldn’t be easier!

Forest Nymph

Spring is finally here!  The sun is shining, and lavender is in the air.  To celebrate spring we’ve got a selection of freebies to brighten your avatar’s wardrobe.

This flirty little dress is a Lucky Board gift available at MH Unique Design.  It’s mesh, comes in 6 colors, and 5 standard sizes.  In addition to MH Unique Design’s wall of Lucky Boards there are several bagged group gifts to choose from.  Add to that the store group is free to join, and everyone is guaranteed to leave the store with a new outfit or two!

Today’s sexy voluminous hair is a gift from Firelight that can be found at the Portuguese orientation sim: Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios. The Portia hair comes with two color HUDs, one for the basic color and another color tint HUD. The tint HUD allowed us to come up with this fun spring green color.  Portia also comes in two sizes, normal and busty.

Though we featured Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios in our last post, Hello Valentina, the sheer amount of quality freebies concentrated in a single place certainly deserves a second mention.  Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios is a great place to visit, especially if your avatar is in need of a makeover and your Lindens have vanished.

Our model Gemma decided her normally fresh faced look needed a little pizazz to set off the overall green look created by her outfit.  So, she opted for a wonderful free eyeshadow set found in the marketplace.  The set includes 5 eyeshadow colors.  They are system layers, so this is only for classic avatars.

While in the marketplace be sure to click over to Izzie’s for the Sheer Pastel Tights Easter Gift.  These stockings come in 12 fabulous shades with included appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega and system tattoo layers.

Let’s talk about the eBODY SHOP!  eBODY makes 2 mesh bodies: the Classic, and the Curvy.  The eBODY controller HUD is extensive and very easy to use.  Both mesh bodies are competitively priced with the other name brand bodies.

eBODY stands apart from the others by selling excellent gift versions of both bodies for 1L.  That’s right 1L will get you a wonderful mesh body.  Does the gift version have all the bells and whistles that the full priced body has?  Of course not.  But what the gift version has is most definitely worth the Linden!

What you get for 1L from eBODY:

  • 12 Body Skintones
  • Alpha Thick (31 areas to hide)
  • Mesh hands (not bento)
  • Mesh feet (High, Mid, Flat)  (Slink compatible)
  • A neck fix
  • Several body shapes
  • eBODY physic 1

After picking up the clothing we recommend you rush over to syhk ASAP to get yourself the free male mesh body 1.2.
ASU - Afternoon Strollbody
Our model Wolfgang is wearing the fabulous syhk 1.2 body and the included shape.  This is by far the nicest free mesh body Team All Spiffed Up has encountered to date.  There is so much to love about this body that we decided to let the pictures do our heavy lifting.

We have included a picture of the body’s HUD.  syhk 1.2 comes with an extensive alpha system, an included tattoo, mesh underwear, and preset skin & nail colors with the additional ability to use a color picker to make your own skin tones.

Since we were unable to find any sort of neck fix option in the box, the color picker is a great feature that allows a patient person to nearly match whatever head option they choose to wear.

Below is the included tattoo which can easily be worn by clicking on the tattoo picture.  To remove simply click hide. The same process applies to the underwear.  The HUD’s simplicity makes wearing syhk 1.2 a joy.
