Time Out

ASU - Time Out cover3
Happy Saturday everyone! It’s day 5 of ASU’s 30 days of Halloween. 
The constant stream of events, hunts, and designer showcases keeps us so focused on grid trotting that we often overlook great freebies Linden Labs built into our inventory.  There are over 40 complete avatars built into Second Life.
Think of the Linden supplied avatars as an avatar salvage yard.  Focus on the avatar’s parts:  hair, eyes, clothing, attachments, and then pick the bits that interest you for use on your own avatar.
ASU - Time Out frontback
Today we’ve remade the Linden’s Petrol Sue into something mesh body and head wearers can use.   The inspiration for this look is LF’s Halloween Skin gift at the BeYou2Ful Event.  It’s boxed with appliers for Genesis Lab, Maitreya, Catwa Heads, Slink, and Omega systems.
ASU - Time Out face
This is what the skin looks like applied to a Maitreya body and a Lelutka Cate head.  We were able to create this look by using the original Petrol Sue shape plus one modification.  The leg muscles needed to be reduced to fit the thigh holster.  You’ll also need to choose a hairbase to go with the Petrol Sue hair since it’s a mohawk.  The dark hairbase from our mesh head fit well with this look.
ASU - Time Out shoef
The skin has such delicious cuts and gashes it seemed a shame to cover them with the Petrol Sue boots, so team ASU decided to make our October gift a pair of boots.  They’re grungy, blood spattered, and perfect for this outfit.  Team ASU added a gun and knife to the October gift box to fill those empty holsters.
ASU - Time Out Petrolsueclassic
Classic avatars aren’t entirely left out of today’s outfit.  They can always wear the original unmodified Petrol Sue avatar pictured on the left. Or, they can wear the skin over their existing shape as our classic model Gabby has done on the right.  Gabby even found a free tintable hairbase in the marketplace just in case you want to change up the original look.

Demon's Delight

ASU - Demon's Delight Cover
Have you ever found an item that piques your interest, but simultaneously leaves you bewildered when trying envision how to use it?  If so, welcome to our world.
Zibska’s and BMS’ Hair Fair gifts are wonderful, and just different enough it took our team a few days to create a free look we felt did them justice.  We hope you enjoy it.
ASU - Demon's Delight f-b
The bodysuit is a wearable color tester from Beautiful Dirty Rich designed to showcase their current 20 shade color palette.  The tester supports Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Omega system appliers, and classic tattoo layers.
We plucked the tail out of a group gift from No Cabide.  It is copy/mod so we were able to change the texture and color to match our outfit.
ASU - Demon's Delight face
Our model used her mesh body and head HUDs to tint her skin green.  She also turned up the shine to achieve the fantasy look. Don’t despair if you’re a classic avatar, we’ve included a marketplace link to a free tint-able body tattoo layer for you to go green too.
ASU - Demon's Delight hair side
This fun hairstyle is the BMS Hair Fair gift.  It is resizable and tint-able, however the texture color is this nice strong green so any tint added will go over green.
ASU - Demon's Delight hair top
Just lots of great movement in this hair!  Thanks BMS, we love it.
ASU - Demon's Delight necklaceear
Here’s a closer look at the Lanthe earrings from ZibskaZibska’s gift includes the large conical collar, earrings, and a lovely eyeshadow set for both classic and mesh heads.  This is a fantastic avant-garde gift bound to inspire your avatar’s creativity.
ASU - Demon's Delight bracelet
The horns and studded choker/bracelet set are a little gift team All Spiffed Up’s creative director assembled for our readers.  Simply stop by the All Spiffed Up headquarters to get your gift.  Don’t mind the mess, we’re in the process of remodeling.
ASU - Demon's Delight boot
Finishing off the look is a lovely pair of strapped boots from La Belle Boutique (LBB) for The Free Dove.  They are part of the Jem Outfit have a color change HUD, and come sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

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.

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.

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!

A quick teleport to Firelight will result in several new hairdos.  This style is one of three gifts for members of SFL&O (Second Life Frees & Offers).  Joining the Firelight group will give access to mania boards and lucky chairs.  Plus, Firelight is a participant in the Enchantment Hunt (it ends August 31st), so there are two 0L frogs to find containing cool new styles.

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.

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.

Rest & Relaxation

ASU - R&RcoverF
Several broken nails and countless paper cuts later we’re happy to announce we’ve finally opened all of our Women Only Hunt (WOH) gifts.   The WOH runs through August 18th, so you’ve still got time to collect the goodies.
All items in today’s post except for the flip flops are WOH gifts.
ASU - R&R F&B
The dollfactory’s hunt gift is the Anne shape.  The shape was designed for Slink’s Hourglass body and Catwa’s Lona head.  If your like our model (Dutch) and don’t own either of those items you can still give the shape a try since it is copy/mod.  Dutch was able to use the body portion of the shape “as is”, but did have to make mods to the head/face numbers to get a look that worked for her mesh head. 
Though the halter top and the front tied shirt are two separate gifts from different stores, you’d swear they were made as a set.  They layer together seamlessly.
ASY&Ud-1
7 Deadly Skins gifted the Bali skin in chestnut.  The skin is Omega compatible and comes with a no-brow option!
The black flip flops are  a nice little marketplace freebie.  They come in 4 colors, and though they are packaged for mesh feet they can be worn by classic avatars.
The Mary shorts from Have Unequal have a nice embroidery color change HUD.
