I was so blown away by JUMO’s dazzlingly shiny silver gown that I almost missed the  sumptuous grey stole tucked into the box.  I know, hard to believe but true.  The photo shoot was completed, and I was double checking the box for a possible alpha when I noticed a fitmesh + 5 standard sized models with the word fur in their descriptions.

OMG! It’s sooooooo FLUFFY!  Did I mention no animals, virtual or otherwise, were harmed in the creation of this stole?  The textures on this entire gift are outstanding.  Thanks JUMO for such an amazing gift.

ASU - Glitterxtra

The featured earrings and eyes can also be found at Designer’s Showcase.  The mesh eyes are a gift from Dulce Secrets.  They come in 3 shades and are boxed with system eyes, mesh eyes, and Catwa/Lelutka appliers.

If you wear Maitreya/Slink/Belleza feet be sure to visit Hilly Haalan for today’s heels.  The 30 shades packed into their HUD make them a must have item.


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the jewelry to the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet are 100% free.  Thanks to the generosity of Altamura, transitioning to mesh couldn’t be easier.

New Year’s Resolution #1:  Release your inner diva!

This fabulous New Year’s gift from ALB Dream Fashion will thrill your inner diva. It comes with a lovely fur coat, satin gown with optional flexi flounce, jewelry (not pictured), and fantastic gem encrusted heels.  The coat and gown include alphas for classic avatars w/5 standard sizes, and additional meshes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.  The heels are for mesh feet only:  Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and Ocacin.

The coat has a lovely quirky little lace and bow kick pleat.

Today’s model is wearing the gown without the included flexi skirts.  However if you love to twirl in your silks, there are plenty of black and sparkly gold flexis to make you smile.

Lelutka head wearers will love this ultra glossy set of 6 lipsticks at Sintiklia.  The set can be found on the free gift wall, which happens to be next to a great bunch of free play lucky boards.

Be sure to visit the All Spiffed Headquarters to pick up this flashy gold and pearl jewelry set.  It’s a special gift from us to our readers, and will only be available through the month of January.

SHOE |The Free Dove .LBB.Kenji boots – resize menu + color HUD (GG/free)

Only 2 days left to Shop & Hop!  This gift rich winter shopping event only runs through January 4th, so it’s time to get your shop on.

Our classic model, Gabby, decided pop over to Blueberry and redeem her event store credit.  She chose the Minnie coat (shade pixie).  Minnie is sized for mesh bodies only, so there is no alpha for classic avatars in the box.  Of course, that does not mean classic avatars can’t wear this.  It simply means you have to be a bit creative by borrowing alphas you already have in your inventory.

Or, you can do what Gabby did, and simply wear one of the included meshes for a curvier body type such as Venus or Hourglass.  Going curvy will usually solve most fit problems.  Plus, you have the added joy of going voluptuous without having to purchase the body.  **WARNING – wearing  curvy mesh clothing on a classic avatar is a virtual Wonder Spanx – the effect ends when the coat comes off (wink, wink).** 

ASU - Shop&Hop3back

Today’s hair is one of several free (no group join required) gifts at Sintiklia.  The way the hair flows seamlessly over the mesh hooded jacked is simply great.  The Sheba hair is designed to be a hat hair, and comes with the option of making the included hat invisible so that you can wear any hat of your choosing.

Gabby decided to wear the hat from B.D.R.’s Little Diva outfit originally modeled here.  Little Diva’s HUD includes a tint picker for creating infinite color choices.  Gabby had no problem tinting the hat to match the shade of her coat.

I wanted to have our model pair this outfit with a nice pair of UGG styled winter boots.  Unfortunately, none of our team was able to track down a current freebie.  Cabal, yesterday’s model, overheard our dilemma and proceeded to bust up laughing.  He just kept looking down at his boots and roaring.  And, that’s when the light bulb exploded.  Ladies, the Kenji boots may be in the men’s section of The Free Dove, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear them too!  Shop happy peeps!

If you’re in the mood to show off your magnificence without flashing skin, I’ve found the perfect catsuit.  The classic mock turtle neck paired with a sleek satin finished spandex make this extremely versatile.  Pair it with a faux fur and jewels for a stroll down 5th Avenue. Or, add a leather bolero, platform boots, and a harness or two to add an Underworld flavor to your wanderings.

The open back is perfect for showcasing tattoos and piercings.  Or you can do what I did, and simply highlight your haircut.  This classic mid-length style is a luckyboard gift at Sintiklia for anyone that’s willing to wait for their letter appear.

The detailing on the sweater coat is exceptional.  I love the boho feel that is a bit reminiscent of the Katwise upcycled elf sweater coats.

No need to wait until tomorrow to get in on the Black Friday deals.  Teleport over to the Black Friday Bazaar for early gifts.  Over 50 designers are participating in the event, and most have set out a free gift bag for members of the Evil Bunny Productions group.  Yes, the group is also free to join.

Pop over to ADE for this casually fun hairstyle.  Issa is a fully featured fatpack gift with 9 color HUDs, 2 mesh models (rigged & unrigged), and a style HUD with bang & fringe options.

Issa’s bang option features an eyebrow length style which is very cute, but not the look our model was going for, so she went bangless and paired it with Sintiklia’s babyhair v.4.

Concluding today’s look is a charming skin from 7 Deadly Skins.  The oak toned Soya Omega applier is a group gift for members of Maitreya Gifts Sales & News.  You can find this and all the other shopping group gifts in the room directly behind the main desk.  Happy deal hunting!

Estephania is back to show off yet another great SL F&O Hunt gift.  Today’s outfit is the Petry Model Store’s gift.  The SRBE Outfit includes a skirt, top, shoes, and comes sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies.

Pop over to Sintiklia for these wonderful mesh hair accents.  The hair buns are part of a boxed gift set.  They come with several color HUDs, and an additional color picker HUD.  We paired the buns with the Babyhair gift set also from Sintiklia.   Both of these gifts are free for all store visitors.  Thanks Sintiklia, we love them!

If you’re thinking buns and babyhair don’t make a complete hairstyle, you are correct.  Altamura’s Estephania gift comes with the option to wear a hairbase.  Simply wear the hairbase, and color the buns to match for an instant new hairstyle.  Any avatar, classic or mesh, can make this style by wearing a colored hairbase and coordinating the Sintiklia buns and babyhair to match.

For the earrings, simply drop by the All Spiffed Up headquarters to get a pair for yourself.

I, Zombie

ASU - ZombieCoverF

Thanks to a couple of great freebies, one each from Bossie and GothiCatz, we’ve assembled a chilling zombie look for you.  WARNING:  Not safe to wear this look around avatars named Rick Grimes, Daryl, or Michonne!

ASU - Zombie frontd

Bossie’s October group gift is this lovely decaying skin and eye applier set.  The appliers support Catwa, and Omega compatible mesh heads & bodies.  Included in the set is a gory, rotting, maggot infested mesh eye that any avatar can wear.  The creepy eye is definitely worth adding to your Halloween makeover tool chest.

Classic avatars don’t despair.  Though you can’t wear the Bossie appliers, you can still use the creepy mesh eye.  And, we looked though the marketplace and put together several tattoo layers to help create your own zombie skin, plus we found a dead eyes freebie.  You can see the classic look under the shoe picture.

ASU - Zombie back

The bloody dress is from GothiCatz.  It is sized to fit mesh and classic avatars, so everyone can commune with their inner zombie properly attired.  Best of all, it’s free for all visitors to the store, no group join required.

Sintiklia is also giving a great freebie this month to all store visitors.  Feast your eyes on the Lioness hair.  It’s a full fatpack, so you’re bound to find a color that appeals to your unique tastes.

A quick trip to The Free Dove will supply these high mules.  They are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

ASU - ZombieClassic

Here’s our classic avatar version of today’s outfit.  The key to getting looks like this from free makeup finds is layering the tattoos.  Apparition gives a fantastic set of skin tint tattoos in their marketplace store.  The tints come in 4 strengths: 10%, 25%, 50%, and 75%.  You choose the tint shades and and layer over your own skin.  Or, you can wear the Zara skin gift from Corvus as your base to get the same look as our model.
