& Stuff…

& Stuff...LucyCover
The ‘stuff Groups SL are kicking off the new year with a flurry of freebies! If you are thinking ‘stuff Groups who, what, huh?  Don’t worry you’re not alone.  Most likely you’ll recognize this group more readily by the individual hunts they organize:  Menstuff, Womenstuff, Kidstuff, Homestuff, & Posestuff.

I know hunts can be annoyingly frustrating, BUT ‘stuff Hunts are in a class of their own.  Why we love ‘stuff Hunts:

  • The gifts are great!
  • The gifts are free (0L)
  • The hunt objects are easy to find.
  • The hunt runs from January 1st – January 31st
  • The hunt hints make sense! (for those of us having a problem finding the object)
  • The participating designers tend to be generous.  If the hunt gift is not to your liking there is an excellent chance a more interesting freebie is lurking in the store’s group gift or lucky chair area.
  • Womenstuff hint page:   Store listing, hints, & landmark page

Our first model Lucy is Team All Spiffed Up’s go to gal for hunts and bustling events.  She decided to keep today’s post simple and show off the first three items from the Womenstuff hint page plus a free hair from Radex DesiGn.
& Stuff...Lucyside
Lune~Bleue’s Womenstuff gift is this wonderful black and white winter ensemble.  The Frosty outfit comes complete with a coat, tank & skirt, and half-boots & socks. The coat and socks are separates, thus can be mixed and matched freely with other items in your inventory.

Best of all, Lune~Bleue  has considerately provided the Frosty outfit sized for both classic and mesh avatars.  Which explains why we are blogging the same outfit on three different models today.  Lucy is a classic avatar wearing an XS tank & skirt combined with a S coat. She advises wearing the coat one size larger than your tank & skirt size to prevent them from poking through the coat when moving.
& Stuff...Everleyfront
Everley wears the TMP basic free mesh body.  This body is quite lovely, but does have it’s challenges for those of us not willing to spend lindens.  The basic free body lacks an alpha system. So, when we find outfits that support or fit TMP we feel compelled to share them with our readers.
& Stuff...Everleyback
Though Lune~Bleue did not include a mesh specifically for TMP, the HourGlass tank & skirt mesh worked perfectly.  Unfortunately, none of the coats concealed the TMP arms.
& Stuff...Everleynecklace
Everley’s necklace is the Womenstuff gift from Zuri Jewelry.  The necklace has a color change menu for the metal, gems, and large heart.  Zuri Jewelry’s mainstore also has free gifts for members of MLM, SLF&O, FabFree, Maitrya Gifts Sales & News.  Simply wear your tags to add a few lovely new pieces to your virtual jewelry box.
& Stuff...Ionafront
The last model is the ever versatile Iona.  Iona wears the Maitreya Lara mesh body.  The Frosty outfit fits the mesh bodies supported perfectly.

Here is the boot and sock closeup.  Both items are non-rigged for easy adjustment.

Green Velvet

Happy 2018! It’s a new year filled with fantastic new freebies. So, let’s get down to business.

Today Carla is modeling a matched set from Emerald Couture. This great little number is currently free for the taking. It comes sized to fit Slink & Maitreya along with 5 Fitmesh sizes & an alpha for standard avatars. The stocking/boots are sized for SlinkH, SlinkP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Maitreya. Not only is Emerald Couture’s group free to join, but they also have 4 lucky chairs and Men’s clothing too!

ASU - Green Velvet Back

The black chair Carla is posing with is a fun marketplace freebie that can be found in Irrie’s Dollhouse store.  The Pose Chair comes with 5 adjustable poses, is copy/mod, and has a LI of 2.
ASU - Green Velvet Face

RaDeX DesiGn has put out several new hairstyles on their group gifts wall.  Carla is modeling the Juliiet hairstyle. Juliiet comes with a HUD offering several colors.  Best of all, the RaDeX DesiGn group is free to join.

The December Necklace is a gift in alba fashion’s marketplace store.  This is a fun little necklace that is copy/mod which allows the wearer to put a picture of their choice on the pendant.

Capping off the ensemble is a lovely little faux fur rigged mesh stole.  During the photo shoot several members of Team All Spiffed Up felt the outfit needed a little something extra.  After a quick session of brainstorming we put together the ASU stole, which can be found at the All Spiffed Up headquarters in-world. Simply drop by and have a little warmth on us.  Enjoy!

Golden Years

ASU - Golden Years cover
Happy weekend!  Team All Spiffed Up decided to kick off the 2017 holiday season with a whole lot of bling.  This outfit can easily take you from a cocktail party directly to your favorite nightclub.

The micro mini dress, sunglasses, ring, heels, phone, and decor items are all free marketplace finds.  The necklace, earrings, and bracelet are free gifts from Lazuri’s main and Fashion Island stores.

ASU - Golden Years back
All of the decor items are copy/mod so recoloring and resizing is always an option.  The mirrored frames are actually quite large, to get them into this shot resizing was a must.  Keep in mind this particular item cannot be resized simply by grabbing a corner tab and dragging.  Resizing requires editing the linked parts.

The wonderful retro clock is both attractive and fully functional.  Best of all, the faux fur rug has 9 color choices, one being SKUNK!

ASU - Golden Years face
Analog Dog styled today’s hair.  This glamorous style can be found in the current freeball.

ASU - Golden Years shoes
The satin wedges and sunglasses are part of a free outfit in FA Creations marketplace store.  These heels are old school, meaning the feet are included in the shoe.  Before our mesh body wearing friends turn up their noses at these heels, consider this; they come with an easy to use HUD that allows skin, nails, and main color changes plus resizing.  Any avatar, mesh or classic can wear these.

The Red Violin

Mystery, obsession, and rare musical instruments are not just for the movies.  They can all be yours in Second Life too!

RaDex DesiGns was the first stop for today’s post.  The RaDex group is free to join, and has several nice freebies for its members.  The tipped Willow hair is one of this week’s free group offerings.

ASU - Red Violin back
If those group freebies aren’t enough, have no fear, RaDex also offers a few other gifts packaged for some of our favorite shopping groups.   The Almila Jacket dress is a gift for Solaris members.  Almila comes in five standard mesh sizes plus an alpha.

Kyoto On My Mind

Halloween look #2 – The Geisha.

This is a fun look that doesn’t require a single teleport or a single Linden.  Simply click the marketplace links in the style card, buy for 0L,  and dress.  Most of the items are copy/mod so can have fun putting your unique signature on the ensemble. 

The Curious Kitties Shop supplied the Kimono & hair.  We did modify the hair a bit.  First we made the flexi bits invisible.  Then we added the wine streaks to jazz up the design.

ASU - Kyoto On My Mind back
Next we removed the peachy hue from the orchids.

ASU - Kyoto On My Mind face
To create the Geisha powdered skin tone we added a skin tint tattoo layer.  Then we layered eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick tattoos. The overall effect created a lovely Geisha look without having to purchase a new specialty skin.

ASU - Kyoto On My Mind makeup
When recreating this makeup be sure to add the lipstick last.

ASU - Kyoto On My Mind hair
Here’s a closeup of streaks.

ASU - Kyoto On My Mind shoe
We added that same wine hue to the sandal straps.

Now let’s talk socks.  These socks are rigged and full perm.  So if you want to work on them you’ll need to rez them on the ground, make your modifications, take them back into inventory and then wear them.  Since the sock mesh is high above the ankle, the socks were showing through the kimono whenever our model moved.

To solve that problem we added more alpha to the sock texture hiding the top half of the sock mesh.  It worked like a charm.  Our texture is available at the All Spiffed Up Headquarters.
