Namaste

ASU - NamastecoverF

Who says you can’t look sexy while during your morning practice?  We found the Elisea swimsuit set at LRS.  It comes with a color changed HUD, and is sized for most mesh bodies.  Simply join the group and proceed upstairs to the freebie area.  With all the gifts to choose from, you’re bound to leave happy.

ASU - Namastefront

If you need room to practice, but don’t want to leave your own corner of SL, simply open the marketplace and buy this free studio.  Since the build is copy/mod adding personal touches is a snap.

Let’s Do it Again!

ASU - Nina4cover2

Do what again?  On9, of course.  Though we featured several of the fabulous gifts available at On9 yesterday, we still have more to share

ArisArisB&W’s Surprise Dress is a gift we couldn’t resist modeling.  This stylish handkerchief dress comes with 4 great fabric options sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Ebody, and Tonic mesh bodies.

ASU - Nina4back

Here’s a nice side/back view of both the dress and the hair.

The Twirl hairstyle from Olive is quite possibly one of the nicest below-the-shoulder styles on the grid.  The rigging is super, and the fall is very natural.  Twirl even comes boxed with a unicorn horn for endless hours of roleplay.

ASU - Nina4facef5

Today’s jewelry is all part of the Diana Full Set gift from Moondance Boutique at, you guessed it, On9.  The set has 5 earrings, 5 bracelets, 5 rings, and a necklace.  There are 20 opal colors and 8 metals to choose from.  Basically, this single set will pretty much cover most of your more modern themed jewelry needs.

ASU - Nina4bracelet

This is the circle/square bracelet design included in the Diana set.

The “full” ring shown above is the only multi-stone ring style in the Diana set.

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!

ASU - Back to Schoolfacef

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.

ASU - Back to Schoolshoe

…exhales a sigh of utter contentment.  These boots are just too lovely for words. Thanks MSS for sending us into a freebielicious coma!

Astronomy 101

ASU - Astronomy101cfinal

Is it just me, or do those planets look curiously similar to pressed powder eyeshadow?  I have a sneaking suspicion our Iona is deviating from the lesson plan.

Musing aside, we’ve got a few nice finds to brighten up your Monday. So let’s get down to business.

ASU - Astronomy101back

Team All Spiffed Up discovered Safira this weekend.  Safira is a wonderful store run by generous owners.  Safira’s group gift wall is loaded with great items all of which are free

Iona chose to model Safira’s Noa dress.  Noa comes with a 6 color HUD sized for Slink Physique.  If you wear a different mesh body, don’t worry as long as you have a detailed alpha system you’ll be fine.  Iona wears Maitreya’s Lara body, and with a little trial and error on the leg alphas she was able to get the perfect fit.

ASU - Astronomy101eyeclosed

Look at the lovely shading in this eyeshadow!  It’s one of 12 great colorways featured in the Paulie gift set in Zibska’s marketplace store.  The set is packaged with mesh appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega systems.  Best of all, it’s free!

ASU - Anatomy101face

Under the Paulie eyeshadow applier is the Blair skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins (7DS) Blair was recently a Midnight Mania gift.  Though you won’t be able to pickup Blair today, you can slap both of the free Midnight Mania boards located on the wall behind the main desk.

After you click the Midnight Manias pan left and check out the gift boxes. 7DS supports several shopping groups with nice gifts.

Crowning it all off is Summer, another great Lucky Board gift from Olive Hair.  This gift features the blondes HUD, has a streaks option, and comes with rigged and unrigged models.

ASU - Astronomy101shoe

These yummy espadrilles are still available at C&S.  They are sized for Slink/Maitreya feet, and come with a 40 color HUD that allows for overall color changes or separate colored laces.  You’ll find these beauties on the second floor.

ASU - Astronomyplanets

This fun 3D solar system picture is the September group gift at MUSU.  It also comes boxed with a smaller solar system compact.  The compact so strongly resembles holiday makeup sets purchased at a cosmetic counter that our poor Iona simply could not believe it wasn’t an actual applier gift.  She kept unpacking the original box thinking an applier set would be delivered.  Needless to say, that didn’t happen because this wonderfully quirky gift is a DECOR item only.

HAIR – Olive Summer Hair – Blondes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)

Move Over Big Bird

ASU - Move Over BB Cover

…we’re stealing your signature color!

Belle Epoque’s current group gift is simply too vibrant to pass by.  The Giselle dress is fitmesh requiring a bit of tweaking using your mesh body’s own alpha system.  If  you have a detailed alpha HUD, then this dress is a keeper.

ASU - Move Over BB back

The combination of a wrap top and long pencil skirt is sexy in its simplicity.  Great job Belle Epoque.

ASU - Move Over BB hair

15 no group required Lucky Boards plus a daily Midnight Mania always loaded with a complete fatpack is definitely this hair loving freebie hunter’s idea of bliss.  Make yourself happy, teleport to Olive.

Weekend Retreat

ASU - WeekendGetawayCOVER

Happy Saturday!

Team All Spiffed Up thought you might like to kick off your weekend with a little exercise in a lovely setting.  Of course, you’ll need the proper attire, so let’s get dressed.

The t-shirt and running shorts are the August group gift at Vive Nine.  Unlike so many group gifts that have obvious signs in the store, this gift can only be found in Vive Nine’s group notices.  So, join the group (it’s free), click the notices tab in the group, click on the August Group Gift 2018 notice, and open the attachment.  Voila, the Tami outfit is yours.

Tami is sized for mesh bodies, and has 4 color choices for the running shorts.

We found this fantastic tied-at-the-waist sweater on COCO Designs’ group gift wallCOCO Designs’ group is free to join with lots of past gifts still available.  Thanks COCO, we love this shirt!

ASU - WeekendGetawayface2

Here’s a closer look at yet another great hair we snatched off of Olive’s luckyboard wall. The Stephanie Hair Naturals comes sized for regular and bewbies with standard and streak option HUDS.  It’s not easy finding platinum blondes with depth.  Great job Olive on a wonderfully shaded hair!

Eyes up people, we’ve got makeup to discuss.  Our model Carla combines a classic head with a mesh body.  All three of today’s makeups can be found in the marketplace, are tattoo layers, and as an added bonus two of them come with mesh appliers.  Of course to make it into this post they are also free.

ASU - WeekendGetawaymani

This manicure applier set is a gift from Mani Pedi for The Free Dove.

Carla had trouble finding a pair of free sneakers for her outfit, so Team ASU put together an August 2018 sneaker and sock gift for all of our readers.  Simply pop over to the All Spiffed Up headquarters at 7th Heaven to get your gift.  The set is unrigged for easy positioning, includes an alpha for classic avatars, and has resize menus.  Enjoy!

Guilty Pleasures

ASU - My Secret2
A funny thing happened in The Hamptons …we lost our model.  At least we thought we did  until  the aroma of her unscheduled break caught our photographer’s attention.  Luckily Gabe is a resourceful shutterbug and got a few fun candid shots.

This is the last weekend to pickup gifts at The Bliss Event.  The official Bliss advert touts 63 gifts ranging from 0L10L.  While there are a lot of “gifts” be advised that very few of them are actually 0L.  That said, there are a few free gifts that are worth a teleport.
ASU - My Secret vest
Team All Spiffed Up’s favorite Bliss freebie is the jean vest from FAFA.  The detailed embroidery is simply great.  Even better, the vest comes sized for both mesh and classic avatars, making it the perfect mix and match garment.  Nina got the vest to work over her mesh top by wearing one of the standard sized vests over her body specific top.  The combination worked like a charm.
ASU - My Secret side3
The top, denim skirt, and heels are group gifts from No CabideNo Cabide’s group is free to join, and chocked-full of wonderful gifts.  There are even more gifts available for members of various different shopping groups.  Bottom line:  No Cabide is one of the most generous stores on the grid, and well worth visiting!
ASU - My Secret back
Today’s lovely long hair is a lucky board gift from OliveOlive’s wall of lucky boards changes quickly and does not require group membership.  It took Nina less than 5 minutes to collect two different hairstyles.
ASU - My Secret Shoes f
Red platforms with lots of  studs and buckles, ooh la la, we love them!  Believe it or not, these fabulous beauties are an added bonus, not the main attraction, in a boxed gift outfit at No Cabide.  They are sized for mesh feet only (Slink, Maitreya, Belleza), and also come in black and white.

When Nina was putting today’s outfit together she almost missed these shoes completely.  Luckily for us the style of the top boxed with these shoes caught her eye.  She liked the top enough that she thought “hmmmm, wonder what the heels will look like?”  Curiosity works for us Nina, thanks for the great finds!

What’s Up Pussycat?

What's Up Pussycat? cover
Meow!  No your eyes are not deceiving you, we’ve found yet another “hipster cat” outfit for you at FLG & No Cabide.  The backless t-shirt and skirt come boxed together.  They come sized to fit most of the major mesh bodies.  Unfortunately, standard mesh sizes are not included.

Of course, thanks to The Mesh Project the omission of standard mesh sizes and their corresponding alphas is never a problem.  A quick teleport to The Shops will remedy that problem ASAP.  The TMP beta free female body is always just a few clicks away.

Naturally, a system body wearer can always cobble together a few alphas and pull off this ensemble fairly well.  However the backless design of the t-shirt made doing that  quite a challenge.  In the end, it was easier for our model Gabby to simply change over to the TMP body.

What's Up Pussycat? back
Today’s flowing hairstyle is a Lucky Board find from Olive Hair.  It comes with a wonderful HUD loaded with terrific colors and a streak option.  If you are a hair enthusiast a visit to Olive is definitely in order!
