Happy Friday!  Just in case yesterday’s post didn’t inspire you to visit The Gacha Gardens, I thought I’d share a few more items to peak your interest.  One of my favorite items I picked up is the modern yoyo from SEmotion’s stall.

Another fun item is KHD’s Urban Digital Mask. It’s the perfect accessory for when you need tunes and protection from airborne pathogens at the same time.

The last few items from the garden featured today are: eyes from Musa, lipstick from Venge, and pants from Rapture.  These five plus yesterday’s outfit are a nice sampling of just a few of the gifts available.

It’s not easy finding free quality outer wear.  Which is why our entire staff was so pleased to find this gem on a recent visit to Sevyn East.  To keep warm, simply join the free store group and click the winter group gift poster.  Your new down jacket comes with an 8 color HUD that allows for mixing and matching the hood and body colors.

To finish off today’s look, pop over to The Free Dove and grab DE.Boutique’s shoe gift.  They come with an 8 color HUD featuring great tropical textures in various different tones.  The detailing on these is so fantastic you won’t want to take them off.  Enjoy!

HAIR |Sintiklia .Sheba slicked back – w/color + hat HUD (free)
JACKET |Shop & Hop Event .Blueberry.250L credit – Minnie coat in pixie w/t-shirt HUD (199L/free w/credit)
HAT |Beautiful Dirty Rich .Holidays Little Diva – color + tint HUD (GG/free)
PANTS |SL Marketplace .Delizio.classic jeans – classic jeans w/appliers for mesh (free)
SHOE |The Free Dove .LBB.Kenji boots – resize menu + color HUD (GG/free)

Only 2 days left to Shop & Hop!  This gift rich winter shopping event only runs through January 4th, so it’s time to get your shop on.

Our classic model, Gabby, decided pop over to Blueberry and redeem her event store credit.  She chose the Minnie coat (shade pixie).  Minnie is sized for mesh bodies only, so there is no alpha for classic avatars in the box.  Of course, that does not mean classic avatars can’t wear this.  It simply means you have to be a bit creative by borrowing alphas you already have in your inventory.

Or, you can do what Gabby did, and simply wear one of the included meshes for a curvier body type such as Venus or Hourglass.  Going curvy will usually solve most fit problems.  Plus, you have the added joy of going voluptuous without having to purchase the body.  **WARNING – wearing  curvy mesh clothing on a classic avatar is a virtual Wonder Spanx – the effect ends when the coat comes off (wink, wink).** 

ASU - Shop&Hop3back

Today’s hair is one of several free (no group join required) gifts at Sintiklia.  The way the hair flows seamlessly over the mesh hooded jacked is simply great.  The Sheba hair is designed to be a hat hair, and comes with the option of making the included hat invisible so that you can wear any hat of your choosing.

Gabby decided to wear the hat from B.D.R.’s Little Diva outfit originally modeled here.  Little Diva’s HUD includes a tint picker for creating infinite color choices.  Gabby had no problem tinting the hat to match the shade of her coat.

I wanted to have our model pair this outfit with a nice pair of UGG styled winter boots.  Unfortunately, none of our team was able to track down a current freebie.  Cabal, yesterday’s model, overheard our dilemma and proceeded to bust up laughing.  He just kept looking down at his boots and roaring.  And, that’s when the light bulb exploded.  Ladies, the Kenji boots may be in the men’s section of The Free Dove, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear them too!  Shop happy peeps!

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year everyone!  Guys, this post is for you.  You can recreate today’s look for yourself in just two teleports.

First, you’ll want to visit one of the grid’s newest freebie centers:  “F” Store Freebie Junkies.  Though the the store does have some female clothing, most of its inventory is for male avatars.  There are enough goodies to keep you busy for a fair few minutes.

Both the upper body coat outfit and the jeans include alpha layers for classic avatar use.  These mesh outfits are not sized for specific name brand bodies.  However as long as you have a good alpha system included with your mesh body, wearing them is a snap.  Don’t panic when the skin showing through the ripped jeans does not match your skin tone.  Simply put on the included jean HUD and choose a pre-loaded tone.  If needed, you can then add hues by using the tint picker.

Next, simply pop over to The Free Dove.  If you’re not a member, join the store’s free group.  Then walk over to the men’s section for the Kenji Boots by La Bella Boutique (LBB). These boots can be worn by both mesh and classic avatars, and come with a resize menu system plus a color change HUD.

Until next time, happy shopping!

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.

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.

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.

Just lots of great movement in this hair!  Thanks BMS, we love it.

…silly question!

We’ve even found a classy new outfit at BlackRose to lure you back into your closet.  The Veronica Outfit is sized for mesh bodies and thoughtfully includes an alpha for classic avatar use.

The outfit is one piece, so it’s super fast to get into.  Perfect for anyone with a hectic social schedule.  Gotta love that drape and button detailing on the top.

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.

In her last ASU appearance, our model Gabby, discovered Esode’s Zoe Skin.  She liked it so much it has become her default look.  Luckily for us, Zoe is still Esode’s featured group gift.

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.
