Some Like it Hot

ASU - Some Like it Hotcover
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!

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.

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)
