Kyoto On My Mind

Halloween look #2 – The Geisha.

This is a fun look that doesn’t require a single teleport or a single Linden.  Simply click the marketplace links in the style card, buy for 0L,  and dress.  Most of the items are copy/mod so can have fun putting your unique signature on the ensemble. 

The Curious Kitties Shop supplied the Kimono & hair.  We did modify the hair a bit.  First we made the flexi bits invisible.  Then we added the wine streaks to jazz up the design.

Next we removed the peachy hue from the orchids.

To create the Geisha powdered skin tone we added a skin tint tattoo layer.  Then we layered eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick tattoos. The overall effect created a lovely Geisha look without having to purchase a new specialty skin.

When recreating this makeup be sure to add the lipstick last.

Here’s a closeup of streaks.

We added that same wine hue to the sandal straps.

Now let’s talk socks.  These socks are rigged and full perm.  So if you want to work on them you’ll need to rez them on the ground, make your modifications, take them back into inventory and then wear them.  Since the sock mesh is high above the ankle, the socks were showing through the kimono whenever our model moved.

To solve that problem we added more alpha to the sock texture hiding the top half of the sock mesh.  It worked like a charm.  Our texture is available at the All Spiffed Up Headquarters.

Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch

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.

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!
