Happy Weekend everyone!  It’s time to head on over to Legendaire.  Once again the creators at Legendaire have temporarily set their group join fee to 0L.  So if you have not joined yet, now is the time!

Legendaire has sent several members of  team All Spiffed Up into a freebie collecting frenzy.  Not only have they reduced the group join fee, but, and this is a biggie, they have put out loads of GRRRRRRREAT group gifts.
Pop Culture
Since we’ve been shopping at Legendaire there are always two free gifts at the main entrance.  The gift to the left is a free gift for the group SLF & O.  Which of course happens to be free to join.

On the right is the free with a capital “F” gift.  What do we mean? Simple it is a gift that anyone can take without having to join a group.  Iona actually popped by Legendaire to model those two freebies for today’s blog when she discovered it’s a free group join weekend with  tons of bonus group gifts.
Pop Culture
Iona’s glasses and earrings are wonderful gifts that can be found at Since 1975.  The wall of freebies combined with a 0L group join fee make Since 1975 a worthwhile stop.

Makeup, tattoos, bangles, and the necklace can all be found in the Second Life Marketplace. The bangles and necklace are copy/mod which allowed Iona to intensify and change the colors to suit her outfit.

I Want Candy

I Want Candy
Craving sweets?  No problem, the marketplace is full of all kinds of free tasty treasures.  Ring pops, lollipops, muffins, cookies, if you can think of it you can probably find at least one freebie.

I Want Candy
Of course, you’ll need an outfit to pair with your sweets.  You wouldn’t want to be banned from your favorite sim for showing up wearing only a lolly.  Luckily FLG & No Cabide have loads of free outfits to pick from.

Our model Lucy is wearing the FLG Rock Girl dress.  The color change HUD offers a very nice variety of color changes perfect for the “back to school” crowd.

I Want Candy
Lucy found a fun selection of accessories in the marketplace.

Unfortunately, the marketplace store, Candy Crunchers,  that actually inspired this post updated their offerings two days ago removing their fabulous whimsical freebies.  When I went to verify the freebie links I got nothing.  I even tried to visit the in-world store and  got nothing but air…literally.  I’m sorry to say the cute plushie, choker, and kitty ribbon bracelets are no longer available.

The moral of today’s post:  WHEN YOU SEE A GREAT FREEBIE SNAP IT UP ASAP!!!!

Don’t put it in your basket and wait to checkout on a later day.   Many stores giving 0L items tend to give the freebie in one color per marketplace listing.  Don’t simply buy the color you intend to wear.  If you like something and it’s free grab it right away in every color.

I Want Candy

Lucy started and finished today’s ensemble with items from The Free DoveSentinus Hair and Marquesse supplied the hair and boots.

Hello Everyone and welcome to the third installment of All Spiffed Up.  It has taken a bit longer to prepare this post than I expected.  As always I like to challenge myself to create scenes filled with only free items.  I ran headlong into trouble when I fixated on a restaurant theme.  It was the food that caused all my troubles!  Finding free food, not 1L food, is not the easiest task.  In the end I settled on low cost full perm food items.

Once I moved past the food snafu, the rest of the scene fell into place. This scene is packed with freebies.  So let’s get to it!

Meet Cindy the ringleader of Club Chihuahua.  Cindy is free from head to toe literally.
Cindy Standing
Her skin and camisole top are group gifts from AlterEgo & Enertia. At the time of this post AlterEgo’s group was free to join.

The Aaisling Sunkissed skin is an exceptionally nice feature rich gift. Included in the package are: head appliers for Loudmouth, Omegahead, & Tmp; 3 Sunkissed skin options; a skin applier hud that covers almost all of the major mesh bodies and can apply the skin to Slink, Belleza, & Maitreya feet; physics; 5 eyebrow shapers; 2 shapes; an eyelash remover.

As with the skin, the Nikki Cami also comes sized to fit Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, Venus, and Isis mesh bodies.  There are 6 color options available in a no-nonsense hud.  All in all, these are two wonderful gifts. Thank you AlterEgo & Enertia!

Before I move on to the style cards, I’d be remiss if I forgot to introduce our impromptu model Gabby.

You know how Second Life is, VERY social. I always find working in Second Life to be something akin to making the bed when my cat is in the room. It’s a wacky romp filled with distractions! Partway through the photo shoot Gabby decided the sidelines were not for her, she wanted in on the fun. I took one look at her, shook my head, and uttered: “If you want in, you need to wear at least 3 free items, you’ve got 5 minutes!” Surprisingly, Gabby pulled it off in 4.  Cheers to the lady with the fastest clicking fingers in town.

The first thing Gabby did was change her hair to a free one found in the inventory library. For those of us who joined Second Life before the introduction of mesh hair, clothing, bodies, etc… when we think library we think JUNK-forget about it!  This cute flip suggests it’s time to change our ways. The Library is definitely worth a peruse in your spare time. Thanks for the tip Gabby.

…and for the final listing I present a special FREE gift from All Spiffed Up & Mr M’s Creations to all of my blog readers.

Mr M’s Creations graciously donated the The Artist Easel used in this photo shoot.  It is a wonderful 100% mesh,  1 Land Impact,  Copy/Mod sign.  After a bit of banter back and forth we agreed that it would be great to offer an exclusive All Spiffed Up gift to my readers. I had assembled  a series of cute Chihuahua images that never made it into this post. The light bulb went on and presto, a fun freebie was born.

The All Spiffed Up Version of the Easel includes the original Copy/Mod Artist Easel, and the 4 static Chihuahua easels pictured above plus a 5th animated easel not shown.  So, gather your Chihuahua loving buddies and head to Mr. M’s Creations to get your gift!
