Summer With a Capital “S”

ASU SL15b1st-f
…and that rhymes with “F”, and that stands for FREE!

Yes we are breaking out the show tunes, gorging on cake, and guzzling the bubbly.  What can we say?  Second Life’s 15th birthday celebration is making us wild.  So wild in fact that it’s hard to pick a topic to start with.

When in doubt, start with what you know, and Team All Spiffed Up knows all about the Amazing Dreamz SL15B exhibit on the Incredible Sim.  None other than our very own arniek Resident, aka ASU model Iona, created the Crystal Forest.
ASU SL15b1st
Iona scripted many of the larger soap bubbles with poses making the build a great place to take selfies.  Don’t forget to experiment with your environment settings when looking for that perfect picture.  The Crystal Forest has a completely different feel when viewed at midnight.

Got Cake?

… the eBento Event does, lots and lots of gift filled cakes waiting to satisfy your freebie loving sweet tooth.  Once at eBento simply join their free group and then snarf up all the lovely cakes.  You won’t be disappointed!

It’s going to take a few teleports to recreate today’s look, so let’s dive straight into the descriptions.   Let’s start with the Summer is Coming! tank top from Beautiful Dirty Rich.  This wonderful gift is free for anyone that visits the store, fits mesh and classic avatars, and has a HUD with 20 color choices including a materials option.
ASU - Got Cake back
The embroidered denim jacket is a group gift at WellMade.  It comes with a 3 color HUD, and sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP mesh bodies.

No Cabide paired the jeans and flats in their Biah gift.  Both pants and shoes are controlled by the same HUD containing 6 color variations.
ASU - Got Cake face4
JellyRoll’s May group gift supplied today’s hairstyle.  This hair can be worn with or without the flower.  Both the hair and flower are HUD controlled allowing for 10 different looks and 8 flower tones.

This freebie train’s last stop is eBento.  If your avatar’s head and body are Omega compatible then you’ll love the Yoga skin gift from Seven Deadly Skins.  The eyeshadow pictured here is a gift from ArteArte’s gift eyeshadow pack includes appliers and system layer tattoos so both mesh head users and classic avatars can share in the fun.

Be sure to stop by the GA.EG booth to pick up these fabulous mesh eyes!  These very well may be our favorite item at eBento.

Can you ever have enough black brocade?  We think not!  This wonderfully textured jacket is a gift for The Teleport Hub group from Sadistic Obsessions.

Though All Spiffed Up is dedicated to discussing 100% free items, occasionally we come across something so wonderful and almost free that we feel the overwhelming need to give it a mention.
ASU - Forever Goth back
The 10 Lindens spent to join The Teleport Hub’s group is quite possibly the best investment in your Second Life wardrobe that you could ever make.  You don’t have to take our word on this, taxi over to their website to check out the current gifts available for group members:  The Teleport Hub.

ASU - Look No Hands Cover
Happy Saturday!  Hope you’ve got a hot evening in Second Life planned because we’ve found a fun little outfit that simply begs for a night out on the town.

In our ongoing quest to find fantastic free footwear we wandered into Gos BoutiqueGos is filled with gorgeous footwear, their group is currently free to join, and the group gifts are simply WOW!
ASU -Look No Hands Dress
Valentina opened the Bardot Sandal gift and squealed in delight when she discovered this lovely ruffled mini included in the box.  All plans for a quiet night-in vanished.

Gos’ creators not only do a wonderful job with their textures, but they are also conscientious of their customer’s individual graphics preferences.  Each of the gifts we opened included regular and advanced lighting models.  The sandals are for Slink, and Maitreya mesh feet.  The dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Physique mesh bodies.

The level of detail on the advanced lighting model is marvelous.  Thanks Gos Boutique for the stunning gifts!

Some Like it Hot

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!
ASU - Some Like it Hotface
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!

Here’s a closeup of the TMP suede boots.   They come styled loose or fitted with over 40 colors to choose from.  The zippers, sole, heel, and lining also change colors making color coordination a snap.

The Shops Gone Wild

ASU - TheShopsGoneWild cover
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.
ASU - TheShopsGoneWild front
Our TMP model, Everley, is wearing the Classic Boyfriend Tank, Classic Boyfriend Jeans, Classic Gem Ring, Canvas Studded Sneakers, and the Baciaga Classic Leather Bag.

There are so many lovely color choices to choose from!  Even better, notice how perfectly the top rests over the jeans.

Here’s a closeup of the ring.  Though it can take awhile to become comfortable with using The Mesh Project’s HUD, once it is learned customizing items becomes easy.  This ring allows for changing the metal and the gemstone.

Today’s hair is a newer NYNE group gift.  The Nissa hair comes with a fantastic color picker HUD that allows for recoloring of the hair and bow.  The creators at NYNE are both talented and generous with group gifts.  With a free group join fee, trying a new hairstyle couldn’t be easier!

Look at the detail on these sneakers!  It is well worth all of the clicks required to buy (for 0L) all of the color options. Once purchased the color combinations are nearly endless.

This flirty little dress is a Lucky Board gift available at MH Unique Design.  It’s mesh, comes in 6 colors, and 5 standard sizes.  In addition to MH Unique Design’s wall of Lucky Boards there are several bagged group gifts to choose from.  Add to that the store group is free to join, and everyone is guaranteed to leave the store with a new outfit or two!

Today’s sexy voluminous hair is a gift from Firelight that can be found at the Portuguese orientation sim: Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios. The Portia hair comes with two color HUDs, one for the basic color and another color tint HUD. The tint HUD allowed us to come up with this fun spring green color.  Portia also comes in two sizes, normal and busty.

Though we featured Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios in our last post, Hello Valentina, the sheer amount of quality freebies concentrated in a single place certainly deserves a second mention.  Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios is a great place to visit, especially if your avatar is in need of a makeover and your Lindens have vanished.
ASU - Forest Nymph makeup
Our model Gemma decided her normally fresh faced look needed a little pizazz to set off the overall green look created by her outfit.  So, she opted for a wonderful free eyeshadow set found in the marketplace.  The set includes 5 eyeshadow colors.  They are system layers, so this is only for classic avatars.

While in the marketplace be sure to click over to Izzie’s for the Sheer Pastel Tights Easter Gift.  These stockings come in 12 fabulous shades with included appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega and system tattoo layers.

Hello Valentina

ASU - HelloValentinaCover
Happy Saturday!  Prepare yourselves dear readers we’ve got an onslaught of freebies to kick start your weekend.

Team All Spiffed Up recently discovered the Portuguese orientation sim: Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios.  This fabulous freebie trove welcomes all residents and is packed with designer goodies too good to pass by.

This fun “Hello Kitty” dress is one of several gifts Adris King has donated to the sim’s freebie mall.  The dress is sized for most mesh bodies, and also includes alphas for classic avatars.
ASU - HelloValentinaBack
Say hello to the newest All Spiffed Up model, Valentina.  Valentina is completely free from her head down to her mesh toes.  Altamura has donated the 100% mesh, Bento enabled, Valentina Mesh Body to Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios.
ASU - HelloValentinaSide
Valentina’s shape is slim with curves in all the right places.
ASU - Meet ValentinaFace
The shape of Valentina’s face is reminiscent of a young Alyssa Milano from the late 90’s TV series “Charmed.” Using large eyes helps to achieve the look of doe-eyed innocence.

The upscaled ponytail hairstyle is called Astra.  It comes with color HUDs galore.  This coloration comes from the “rainbow” HUD.  Astra is Truth’s 2018 Valentine’s Day freebie so don’t wait forever to pick it up, who knows how long it will be out!

ASU - HelloValentinaBodyF
Altamura has set a new standard in the free female mesh body category.  The alpha system is simply marvelous!  Wearers can control entire sections or minute slices.  It was easy keeping this photo PG rated by simply hiding the private bits by clicking the HUD’s corresponding areas.

Eyelashes, teeth, a hairbase, hands & nails, flat/mid/high feet, and a mesh head are all included in the package.  Since this is a Bento enabled body, Altamura has thoughtfully included several Bento animation & AO HUDs for the hands & face.
ASU - HelloValentinaBodyB
If you’ve been holding back from trying a mesh body this Valentina Set is a great place to start.  It’s free, the HUD is easy to use, and hands, feet, and head are included.

Endless Love

There’s something about pink satin that simply makes a girl weak in the knees!  MH Unique Design’s Vivi Dress is irresistibly shimmery and shiny.  The shading on this gown is so wonderful you’ll find it hard not to remember your first encounter with satin.
ASU Endless Love back
Look at that drape, it’s just so very lovely!  Vivi fits both classic and mesh bodies, so everyone can experience a decadent night out.  It is hard to believe this gown is free.  Thanks MH Unique Design for keeping love alive.
ASU Endless Love Face
This fun heart studded coif is a free gift from Exile.  The hair comes with two HUDs, one to color the heart accents, and the other shades the hair.  All of the hair colors are mottled in the most appealing way.

When we caught up with today’s model Carla, she was still wearing the makeup from her Puppy Love blog entry.  This fabulous makeup set was a Valentine’s Day gift from Izzie’s, and it is still available.

So if you missed it the first time around be sure to rush over to Izzies’s now and get it while you can.   We love that Izzie’s packed the gift with both appliers and  makeup layers so everyone whether they are classic or mesh can enjoy a makeover.
ASU Endless Love Earring
A quick teleport to The Free Dove is all that is needed to accessorize today’s outfit.  The earrings and necklace are part of Chop Zuey’s Les Petits Fleurs Demi Parure set.
