Worth It

ASU - Worth the Trouble cover

Meet Estephania, Altamura’s fantastic gift to the 1st Annual SL F&O huntEstephania is a lovely Bento avatar that includes face and hand AO’s, a full alpha system, and Slink compatible feet.  This lovely lady is well worth hunting for.  Thank you Altamura for your continued generosity!

Today’s complete look is 100% free.  The Milena jumpsuit fatpack is a group gift from Scandalize.  It’s sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies and includes a bellychain and furry arm warmers.  The color HUD is loaded with 42 solid, and 22 ombre colors.  The ombre shades are simply beautiful.  If you haven’t visited Scandalize you’re missing out!

ASU - WorthIt face

Here’s a closer look at Estephania’s gorgeous face.  Altamura does not include eyes with their gift bodies. This isn’t a problem when your system eyes pair seamlessly with their heads.

This stylish hairdo is a wearable demo from Lelutka.  It includes their full range of colors in 15 HUDs.  It’s simply a fantastic versatile style.

The featured jewelry set is a gift from Dellybeams at The Free Dove.  Thought the set comes in one color it is copy/mod which allows for manual changes in edit mode.

Formal on a Monday

ASU - Formal MONDAY2

Here’s a quick bit of sparkle to start your week off on an positive note.  The Sue Gown by Tiffany Designs is packaged to fit classic avatars and Maitreya, Slink, and eBODY meshes.

The gown can be worn with or without the flexi skirts.  That is especially helpful if your going to an area that requires low avatar complexity.  Simply leave the flexi bits off to keep complexity low.

If you find you’d like a bit more fullness to the flexi skirt (as our model did), simply copy and paste the flexi parts into your  inventory then wear.  Once on,  go into edit mode and position the new pieces.

ASU - Formal Monday

Included with the gown is this lovely Starlight Jewelry set.  The set is easy to adjust and position if needed.   To make this outfit your own, you’ll need to pop over to The Free Dove and raid their formal tables.  Enjoy!

I, Zombie

ASU - ZombieCoverF

Thanks to a couple of great freebies, one each from Bossie and GothiCatz, we’ve assembled a chilling zombie look for you.  WARNING:  Not safe to wear this look around avatars named Rick Grimes, Daryl, or Michonne!

ASU - Zombie frontd

Bossie’s October group gift is this lovely decaying skin and eye applier set.  The appliers support Catwa, and Omega compatible mesh heads & bodies.  Included in the set is a gory, rotting, maggot infested mesh eye that any avatar can wear.  The creepy eye is definitely worth adding to your Halloween makeover tool chest.

Classic avatars don’t despair.  Though you can’t wear the Bossie appliers, you can still use the creepy mesh eye.  And, we looked though the marketplace and put together several tattoo layers to help create your own zombie skin, plus we found a dead eyes freebie.  You can see the classic look under the shoe picture.

ASU - Zombie back

The bloody dress is from GothiCatz.  It is sized to fit mesh and classic avatars, so everyone can commune with their inner zombie properly attired.  Best of all, it’s free for all visitors to the store, no group join required.

ASU - Zombie face

Sintiklia is also giving a great freebie this month to all store visitors.  Feast your eyes on the Lioness hair.  It’s a full fatpack, so you’re bound to find a color that appeals to your unique tastes.

ASU - ZombieShoeF

A quick trip to The Free Dove will supply these high mules.  They are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

ASU - ZombieClassic

Here’s our classic avatar version of today’s outfit.  The key to getting looks like this from free makeup finds is layering the tattoos.  Apparition gives a fantastic set of skin tint tattoos in their marketplace store.  The tints come in 4 strengths: 10%, 25%, 50%, and 75%.  You choose the tint shades and and layer over your own skin.  Or, you can wear the Zara skin gift from Corvus as your base to get the same look as our model.

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.

This glamorous hairstyle is a gift at Firelight for Shelbyfied.  It is packaged with rigged and unrigged models, a 2 color HUD, and a tint HUD.

The necklace and bracelet featured above are part of Masoom’s gift available at The Free Dove.

While at The Free Dove cruise by the shoe table to get these flashy fur boots.  The boots are rigged for mesh feet, and are not packaged with a foot hiding alpha.  However, that didn’t stop classic Gabby from enjoying these boots.  She simply kept the foot alpha from a pair of heels she was wearing on, and it worked perfectly.

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.
