Happy October!  Let’s start off the month with a costume guaranteed to please Who Framed Roger Rabbit fans.  Thanks to COCO DESIGNS, we can all have our very own Jessica Rabbit experience.  The luscious red sequined gown and purple suede gloves are COCO DESIGNS’ latest group gifts.

Add a nice pair of heels from Hilly Haalan’s group gift area to complete the outfit.

Next, we’ll need some dramatic eyeshadow, and glossy lipstick.  Zibska’s marketplace eyeshadow gift is absolutely gorgeous, can be worn by both mesh and classic avatars, and is free.

Visit Livia to pickup the Just Reds lipstick gift.  Simply join the store’s free group to get this along with several other wonderful gifts.

Finish off today’s look with another marketplace gift from Alli&Ali.  The Jessica gift only comes in one shade, purple.  Luckily for us, the hair is copy/mod which means a few tweaks in edit mode will create the exact color pictured above.  Set the Hex color to fa1605, glow to 0.15, and check the Full Bright box to wash that purple right out of your hair.

Enjoy!

Last September I had a dream.  Granted it was a very small dream, but it was filled with free jeans, tees, hoodies, sneakers, and the kind of flowing long hairstyles school girls love.   Of course, after days of frustrating freebie hunting my dream was unceremoniously dashed.  I simply couldn’t find the kind of freebies I like to fill that virtual back-to-school shopping list glimmering in my mind’s eye.

My friends, that story will not be repeated this year!  Casual clothing lovers and virtual students, this series of posts are for you.

Keds fans will adore these wonderful little sneakers.  They’re copy/mod for easy resize/recoloring.  Plus, the faces are numerous, making recoloring a joyous task.

Each of today’s looks features a different tone from the Camila Hair color HUD.  Not only does the HUD include 10 shaded textures, but it also has a tint picker area allowing for tons of variations.  Thanks Limerence for a great gift.
ASU - NMay3face
You’ll find this fun baby-bracelet styled necklace along with many other free and 1L items in the Broken Princess Marketplace store.
FYI:  Today’s looks could be the new you!  This entire avatar, from head to toe, is free.  All of the clothing and accessories were free gifts from groups with NO join fees.  The mesh head/body is the curiously cute Jenny gift from Altamura to the London City Sim.  Altamura’s gift bodies come with a wonderful alpha system, Slink compatible feet, and face and hand AO’s.  They are a perfect starter mesh body.  However, if you have no interest in changing your makeup, skintone, or wearing applier clothing, then they are simply perfect bodies.  The included shape is copy/mod, so you can reshape the body and face to suit your personal preferences.
Until next time, shop happy!

It’s So Easy

HAIR |SL Marketplace.Alli&Ali Designs Hair.Invincible Hair (FUCTIONAL DEMO) – men's dark brown fade (free)
| OUTFIT |The Free Dove.Suna Design.Kim Outfit – Dress/Heels/Necklace Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/TMP/5 standards(NO alpha) (GG/free)

I love hassle free shopping!  Nothing tickles me more than opening a box packed with a complete outfit.  Yesterday I visited The Free Dove and found the Kim outfit.  Kim comes with a sexy little dress, strappy heels, and a mesh necklace.  If tomato red is one of your colors, then this dress is for you!
Today’s featured hair is the Invincible functional demo from Alli & Ali.  Invincible is actually a rigged mesh man’s hairstyle.  The hairline has a wide widow’s peak that I chose to minimize by wearing a dark hairbase.  From the front Invincible simply looks like a unisex style.  However, when viewed from the back, the gap between a female’s body and the flowing hair is a dead giveaway that it was rigged for men.
That gap is not necessarily a bad thing.  Rigged men’s long hairstyles offer the perfect workaround for females desirous of wearing long hair with bulky coats and hoodies.  I always recommend wearing the bulking item you’d like your hair to flow over, then trying rigged male demos.  This way you’re able to check if the fit will work for you without wasting your Lindens.
ASU - inaboxshoe
I almost forgot to mention that both the dress, and the heels are sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies.  The heels are sized for high feet only.
Enjoy the quick change!

FYI:  Today’s look could be the new you!  This entire avatar, from head to toe, is free.  The mesh head/body is none other than the lovely Valentina gift from Altamura to Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios.  I even found a skirt at Kamiri that includes a mesh model specifically for the Altamura body.  Of course, the Kina miniskirt is also sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, eBODY Curvy, and TMP bodies.
ASU - Must love kittieseyes
Here’s a nice closeup of those feline eyes.  They come with an eight color HUD.  Catwa and Omega compatible head wearers can use the included appliers.  Everyone else can wear the mesh eyes controlled by a color change HUD.
This whimsical hairstyle is one of several past group gifts available for members of NYNE’s free group.  Odell comes with a color picker HUD which allows for unlimited color changing.   Two rigged mesh models are included, one for regular and the other for boobies.

I’ve Been Scandalized!

…in the very best way possible.
Scandalize has temporarily set their group join fee to 0 Lindens.  So, for those of you that are not members, now is a great time to join.  Scandalize is notorious for the quality and quantity of their group gifts.   Even if you had to pay the normal 100 Linden join fee, their gift area offers so many goodies, you’d get your money’s worth in one visit to the store.
I’ve put together a quick preview of a few items currently available in their group gift area.  Hopefully they will entice you to slip Scandalize into one of your coveted group slots.  Remember, the items modeled here are just the tip of the iceberg.  Many more fantastic gifts await you in-world.

Spring Floral

ASU - Spring2cover

HAIR|SL Marketplace.Alli&Ali Hair.Madeline – Dark Mahogany rigged (free)
| DRESS|Beautiful Dirty Rich.Unforgettable Dress – HUD w/12 prints, 12 solids, lace & grommet options, + color picker Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES|Lemur Store.Alina Sandals – 2 colors Maitreya/Belleza (GG/free)

If you’ve got unresolved floral fantasies, then a quick teleport to Beautiful Dirty Rich may solve your springtime woes.  The Unforgettable Dress is an absolute knockout!  It has an extensive HUD with 12 prints, 12 solids, lace/bow/grommet/materials options, and a tint picking system.  All the possibilities contained in a single garment make the Unforgettable Dress your spring must have outfit.
You may have noticed I set the materials options above to bold.  Materials on is the Unforgettable Dress’s default state.  Personally, I don’t enjoy seeing nice cotton t-shirt type textures that would normally have a matte finish sporting a forced materials shine.  To enjoy that natural cotton knit finish simply click the X near Materials on the HUD.  **Remember with the default state as on, you’ll need to click the materials off every time you change the main dress fabric.** 
ASU - Spring2back
Here’s a nice view of the back.  I love a modest neckline combined with an open back. Notice the complementary rolled edging.  Thanks Beautiful Dirty Rich for the great gift!
Pop over to Lemur to get today’s heels.  They come in 2 shades, and are sized for Maitreya and Belleza feet.  Fear not Slink ladies, your feet should easily fit into the Belleza model.  Our model’s Slink compatible feet fit into the shoes quite well.
The brunettes in the crowd will love the Madeline functional demo from Alli&Ali.  This rigged beauty comes in a rich dark mahogany shade.  Simply click the marketplace link to get your new do.
Until next time, shop happy!
