New Outfit, Coiffed Hair, Fresh Skin, New You!

AS - Nov11-1

Happy November!  To kick off this month’s posts I thought I’d change things up a bit.  All of the items featured in today’s pictures are freebies from the stores listed below.  The stores above the horizontal line have fee-free groups that offer loads of free gifts to members.  Plus, each of the three stores has a great set of lucky boards requiring group membership.  Basically, these designers are so freebieliscous they deserve a special mention.

STORE LIST 

The stores below the horiztional line do not have free groups to join.  However, these talented creators often give out completely free and absolutely fantastic gifts, which makes them stores worth watching.

AS - powder

Let’s start with LSR Moda.  Whenever I pop over to LSR, I’m almost always looking for something short and sexy.  Of course, short and sexy is by no means the extent of LSR’s inventory.  Their stock includes all sorts of garments, makeup, hair, and shoes too. All of the clothing featured today came from either LSR Moda’s group area or the lucky boards.

LSR’s group is free to join, and currently features 6 gifts plus 10 lucky boards.

Join the LSR group.

AS - Cashew22

I discovered Mosquito’s Way years ago at a White Nights shopping event.  The store had an event booth, and gave away a wonderfully detailed gift pair of heels.  I loved the heels so much, I immediately teleported to their mainstore.  As a result, I’ve been a customer ever since.

The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join, and currently features 10 group gifts plus 3 lucky chairs.  Inside the store you’ll aslo find gifts for several shopping groups.  The featured necklace is currently a gift for SLF&O members.  Furthermore, all of the shoes are current group gifts and lucky board prizes  at the the main store.  Hanging around Mosquito’s Way for your letter is well worth the time spent.  The lucky board gifts are full fatpacks!

Join Mosquito’s Way group.

AS - Cotton Candy

Too much hair is never enough!  Which, is why I strongly recommend a lengthy visit to NYNE.

NYNE has two store groups.  Joining the regular store group is free, and at present, grants access to 19 group gifts and 8 lucky boards.  That’s definitely enough hairstyles to get you through the upcoming holiday season.  Each one of the featured hairstyles is currently a free gift in-world.

AS - Maple

Zibska is one of my favorite makeup creators.  Though Zibska’s group is not free to join, this creative designer gives out lots of truly wonderful free gifts throughout the year.  There is usually one free gift in the mainstore, and another in Zibska’s marketplace store.

Today our model is wearing a different shade of the Cal Eyemakeup gift for L’Homme readers in each photo.  Even though Cal was designed for male avatars, it also works as an understated shadow on female faces.  Simply teleport to Zibska, join L’Homme’s free group, and click the kiosk to receive your gift.

If you’d like a few more pronounced eyeshadows, be sure to check out Zibska’s Marketplace store.  Currently, there are two free eyeshadows just waiting to insinuate themselves into your inventory.

AS - Fudge

Sometimes the only thing needed to spruce up your avatar is a new skin tone.   My all time favorite Second Life skinners are the talented folks at 7 Deadly Skins.  As a general rule, the store group is NOT free to join.  However, 7 Deadly Skins features free group join weekends several times a year.  And, as luck would have it the last free join weekend for 2019 is scheduled for November 23 – 25th.  Mark your calendars dear readers because you need to be a member to enjoy the store’s awesome advent calendar opening on December 1st.

If you’re not sure whether or not this is a group you’d like to join, why not try one of the free gifts currently available for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MGS&N) group.  Simply join the free shopping group, and teleport over to 7 Deadly Skins.

Inside the store you’ll find a few shelves with gifts for various shopping groups.  Wear MGS&N’s tag and click the box to receive the Shelby skin featured in all of today’s pictures.  The gift box includes 10 skin tones, and a browless option.  This is a fabulous gift for Omega compatible avatars.

Happy shopping everyone!

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!

| TATTOO |SL Marketplace.Isuka Tattoos.Illuminati tattoo – Classic layers/Slink/Omega Appliers(free)

I’ve got to admit, I love it when designers package a complete outfit tidily into one gift box.  Don’t get me wrong, finding freebies and creating new looks is definitely an obsession for all of us at All Spiffed Up.  However, every so often it’s simply nice to just open a box, wear its contents, and hit the grid.  For me, it’s the Second Life version of taking a day off from bed making.
Thanks to Nala Designs we can all have a lazy dress day in a brand new outfit.  The box includes the fringe halter, jeans, heels, and necklace.  The skinny jeans are sized for classic, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP bodies.  The halter comes with a fitmesh and Slink Physique model, plus 5 standard sizes.  The heels are sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
This outfit can be found in the far right corner of the store.  It is a gift for Fabulously Free in Second Life group members, so you’ll need to join the free group.  Nala supports many other free shopping groups.  The shopping group gifts are dotted around the store, one in each room.
ASU - newface
In this closeup the gold necklace included with the outfit is visible.
Today’s sassy hairstyle is a “functional demo”, or more aptly a free sample from the marketplace.  It comes in the one shade, black raspberry, and is yours to wear indefinitely.  Be sure have a lengthy browse through Alli&Ali Design’s other styles, there are lots of interesting freebies in their marketplace store.
Finish off today’s look with another marketplace freebie from Zibska.  This fantastic eyeshadow set can be worn by everyone!  The box is packed with appliers galore and system tattoo layers.
Until next time, shop happy!

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.
ASU - Demon's Delight hair top
Just lots of great movement in this hair!  Thanks BMS, we love it.
ASU - Demon's Delight necklaceear
Here’s a closer look at the Lanthe earrings from ZibskaZibska’s gift includes the large conical collar, earrings, and a lovely eyeshadow set for both classic and mesh heads.  This is a fantastic avant-garde gift bound to inspire your avatar’s creativity.

Astronomy 101

ASU - Astronomy101cfinal
Is it just me, or do those planets look curiously similar to pressed powder eyeshadow?  I have a sneaking suspicion our Iona is deviating from the lesson plan.
Musing aside, we’ve got a few nice finds to brighten up your Monday. So let’s get down to business.
ASU - Astronomy101back
Team All Spiffed Up discovered Safira this weekend.  Safira is a wonderful store run by generous owners.  Safira’s group gift wall is loaded with great items all of which are free
Iona chose to model Safira’s Noa dress.  Noa comes with a 6 color HUD sized for Slink Physique.  If you wear a different mesh body, don’t worry as long as you have a detailed alpha system you’ll be fine.  Iona wears Maitreya’s Lara body, and with a little trial and error on the leg alphas she was able to get the perfect fit.
ASU - Astronomy101eyeclosed
Look at the lovely shading in this eyeshadow!  It’s one of 12 great colorways featured in the Paulie gift set in Zibska’s marketplace store.  The set is packaged with mesh appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega systems.  Best of all, it’s free!
ASU - Anatomy101face
Under the Paulie eyeshadow applier is the Blair skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins (7DS) Blair was recently a Midnight Mania gift.  Though you won’t be able to pickup Blair today, you can slap both of the free Midnight Mania boards located on the wall behind the main desk.
After you click the Midnight Manias pan left and check out the gift boxes. 7DS supports several shopping groups with nice gifts.
Crowning it all off is Summer, another great Lucky Board gift from Olive Hair.  This gift features the blondes HUD, has a streaks option, and comes with rigged and unrigged models.
ASU - Astronomy101shoe
These yummy espadrilles are still available at C&S.  They are sized for Slink/Maitreya feet, and come with a 40 color HUD that allows for overall color changes or separate colored laces.  You’ll find these beauties on the second floor.
ASU - Astronomyplanets
This fun 3D solar system picture is the September group gift at MUSU.  It also comes boxed with a smaller solar system compact.  The compact so strongly resembles holiday makeup sets purchased at a cosmetic counter that our poor Iona simply could not believe it wasn’t an actual applier gift.  She kept unpacking the original box thinking an applier set would be delivered.  Needless to say, that didn’t happen because this wonderfully quirky gift is a DECOR item only.
Iona’s Style Card:
HAIR – Olive Summer Hair – Blondes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)
SKIN – 7 Deadly s[K]ins Blair Skin – in cotton candy (Midnight Mania/0L)
DRESS – Safira Noa dress – fits Slink Physique, 6 color HUD (group gift 0L/0L to join)

Move Over Big Bird

ASU - Move Over BB Cover
…we’re stealing your signature color!
Belle Epoque’s current group gift is simply too vibrant to pass by.  The Giselle dress is fitmesh requiring a bit of tweaking using your mesh body’s own alpha system.  If  you have a detailed alpha HUD, then this dress is a keeper.
ASU - Move Over BB back
The combination of a wrap top and long pencil skirt is sexy in its simplicity.  Great job Belle Epoque.
ASU - Move Over BB hair
15 no group required Lucky Boards plus a daily Midnight Mania always loaded with a complete fatpack is definitely this hair loving freebie hunter’s idea of bliss.  Make yourself happy, teleport to Olive.
