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.

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!

| SHOES |COCO Designs Slide Sandals – Beige Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

Worry not, Hair Fair 2019 has plenty of stylish gifts to chase those tangles away!  This year’s fair runs through September 1st, which gives even the busiest of avatars time to pop over and revel in a bit of silky goodness.

Since not many of the shopping sims I frequent are naturist friendly, I thought it might be wise to find some clothing to go along with the new coiffures.
ASU - HFOB2

HAIR |Hair Fair 2019 .Alli&Ali.Carthage Hair – browns HUD w/resize (free)
| OUTFIT |Black Opium.Silvana Set – fatpack/HUD Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES |COCO Designs Slide Sandals – Beige Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

On a recent visit to Scandalize, I explored the other stores sharing the sim.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that three of the stores’ groups are free to join, and offer past gifts.  That’s a whole lot of free outfits just waiting to happen.

The Silvana Set consists of the 3/4 sleeve tee and stretch pants pictured above.  The items are separates, so can easily mix and match with your existing inventory.  Best of all, the set comes with a fabulous fatpack HUD that offers solid, ombre, and patterned options.  Thanks Black Opium for such a versatile gift!

FYI:  The Carthage hairstyle’s out-of-box color is this lovely platinum blonde which will be lost to you once you use the included browns HUD.  If you’d like to keep the blonde in your inventory for wearing, simply copy the mesh and place it in a new folder safely away from the version you intend to use the color HUD with.

Finishing off today’s looks are a wonderful pair of sandals from COCO Designs.  These comfy yet stylish sandals are COCO’s newest addition to their group gift wall.  Simply join COCO’s free group to immediately experience the joys of membership.

| SHOES |GABRIEL.Boat Shoes – red mesh w/resize (1 Linden)

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year to the day since Altamura’s Tommy avatar made its allspiffy debut in Bad to the Bone.  Our Tommy’s grown a little hair and gone a bit uptown since the last time we saw him, but he still cuts a fine figure.  Which is precisely why I’ve chosen him to model for the second post featuring more of L’HOMME’s 5th Anniversary gifts
All of the designers featured in today’s look generously support L’HOMME’s reader group.  So, if yesterday’s post didn’t inspire you to join, maybe today’s will.
ASU - Aug2019-2ndback
I love the bold colors, and subtle accents in the Marcus Outfit from Meva.  Though the outfit is sized for only two particular male mesh bodies, that does not mean other bodies with an alpha system can’t also enjoy it.
ASU - Aug2019-2ndface3
NOIR’s fantastic sunglasses are definitely a “gotta have yesterday” item.  They’re unisex, cool, and come with an awesome HUD.
Guys looking for a new hairstyle simply need to pop over to Dura and join their fee free group.  Several styles are available, plus an extra look for members of L’HOMME’s reader group.
Stay epic peeps!

ASU - ebento2019bdayface
Finish off today’s look with a couple of fantastic gifts from eBento’s 2nd Anniversary round.  I’m a huge fan of 7 Deadly s[K]ins creations, and their Paradise skin gift doesn’t disappoint.  The Paradise skin is sweetly freckled, lightly rouged, and supports brow/browless options.
Next, visit GA.EG’s booth for their Ulitmate Eye gift.  This mesh eye system is absolutely wonderful.  I discovered GA.EG a year ago at eBento’s first anniversary celebration, and have been a fan ever since.  These eyes are highly configurable, and are uniquely animated. If you picked up last year’s Ultimate Eye gift, you’ll  still want to pick up this year’s gift, the included eye pack is new.
Since it’s eBento’s birthday,  there are tons of other fabulous gifts to discover.  This round is full of interesting items from talented designers.  Simply join the free event group, click the birthday cakes at each booth, and leave happy.

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!

After a day dominated by tanning lotion and coastal breezes you’ll need to pop into Alli & Ali for a quick comb out.  Luckily for us, Alli & Ali’s free Easter Hunt gifts are still dotted around the store.  There are 10 relatively easy to find Easter baskets filled with fun hairstyles.  The Unicorn HUD V.2 is filled with so many awesome shades it was hard to pick one to model.
ASU - SpringBloomsNecklace
Sometimes finding free accessories can be a challenge.  Today I decided to visit a store I haven’t been to in years:  Dark Mouse.  I found this sweet bow necklace gift on the main counter.  It comes in 4 colors, and is free for all store shoppers – no group join required!   Ramping up Dark Mouse’s freebielicious appeal are four luckyboards.   For those of you with Lindens burning a hole in your virtual pockets, there are scads of cute extremely low priced (25L) items to be had.
ASU - SpringBloomsShoe
I added Breathe’s stylish, but not overly dressy, Choko heels to polish off the look.  The colors featured in the gift HUD are perfect for spring and summer attire.  As an added benefit, the HUD separates the heels into three color zones allowing for tons of combinations.  Simply join Breathe’s free group to make these lovely sandals your very own.
Until we meet again, happy shopping!

It’s So Easy

ASU - inaboxcover3

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!
