It’s all skin deep

Last, but hopefully not least… I’m here for Free Skin Day!  Better late than never, right?  So let’s jump right in.

It's all skin deep

First up, are two nice FREE skin packs from Curious Kitties. The #1 is the Azil Skin – Winter Spirit shown on the Moon skin.  Each Azil free pack comes with eight skin tones from very light to this nice midnight blue-ish tone.  Skin #2 is also Azil but it’s the Light Sparkle Skin. I liked the soft look to the skin but the Wisp skin with it’s leopard spots and swirls just made me fall in love. The Wisp skin is also in the Winter Spirit pack just with the frosty face paint.  These skins do not come with any appliers nor could I find appliers in store. But matching via the color HUDs shouldn’t be too big of a problem. Both of these packs are FREE for everyone, no group needed!

Curious Kitties – Azil Skin Packs in Winter Spirit and Light Sparkle – (FREE/0L/Free gift no group needed)

It's all skin deep

Next up is Birdy with two Group Gifts: Jaime and Ali. The Birdy VIP Group is a one time fee of 150L. Jaime, #1 , is in the Toffee tone and comes with a ton of add-ons and a HUD for NyamNyam. The add-ons are on the tattoo layer and include freckles, eye liner, three colors of lip gloss, three levels of ‘face contouring’ for definition, and two face ‘Dews’. All of the appliers are available in the main Birdy store.

You may remember, I showed you the Ali group gift skin back here. Ali is still available and includes all of the same tattoo layers and NyamNyam Hud. However, you also get the skin with four brows with the Ali gift: no brows, black, blonde and ginger.

It's all skin deep

Deluxe Body Factory is next with the December Group Gift: Shanice in Chi. DBF is great for getting out monthly group gift skins for both men and women and the quality of the skins is wonderful. The Shanice skin comes with a brow shaper but no appliers. Those are available separately in-store. DBF’s group has a small fee to join but that 49L one time fee lets you play at the twenty lucky boards in the back of the store.  That’s where I picked up skin #2: Maja. This gift comes with a brow shaper as well as appliers for SLink hands and feet and Lolas Tango. Maja , in Vanilla, comes with three levels of cleavage as well.

Lastly, we have a very familiar skin designer, 7 Deadly Skins. Familiar and very generous. 7DS is another shore that is great with getting out monthly group gifts for both men and women and they have four lucky chairs and two camping chairs, plus two Midnight Manias one for girls and one for guys. My favorite of this group is #1, Esmee DC Pineapple. I was lucky enough to pull this beautiful skin from one of the Lucky Chairs. Esmee comes in two versions one with the cute freckles and one without plus each has a cleavage level. There are also appliers for SLink hands and feet, phatazz and Tango.

#2 is Savannah and I won this skin on the Midnight Mania board. Savannah also comes in two version with different lip colors and levels of cleavage plus appliers for SLink hands and feet and Tango cleavage and no cleavage.

7 Deadly Skins just started their Holiday Advent gift calendar and #3 is todays first gift. The Advent gifts are all the same skin: Noelia but by the end of the calendar you will have sixty skins ( with and without cleavage) appliers, the shape, an eyeliner pack, a lipstick pack and face appliers. For you guys the Advent gift is Noah. At the end of the calendar you will have twenty eight skins ( with and without hair base) the shape, Omega and TMP face appliers and SLink Body appliers.  That, my dears… is a heck of a gift!

Right now, the Group is FREE to join however I don’t know how long this will last.

Noelia – (FREE/0L/Holiday Advent Gift for Day 1)

Happy FREE SKIN DAY Gentlemen!

freeskin ab 7ds

Hello everyone and happy Free Skin Day to all you Fabbies out there. First off, an uncomfortable truth for the male avies of Second Life: The default skin that you began Second Life with is definitely in need of immediate replacement. You might not want to fuss around with one, but a skin upgrade could make a world of difference in your SL. Male skins are notoriously expensive, but it is possible to upgrade your skin for FREE or for very little cost. Here are some fantastic possibilities:

A – Seven Deadly s{K}ins – Noah – (FREE Advent Calender Gift / 0L / FREE to join all December)
B – Seven Deadly s{K}ins – Bjorn – (Marketplace Promo Item / 1L )

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is a great place to get skins and easily one of the most generous stores on the grid as far as giving out free gifts to their group members. December is a great time to join their group, as it is FREE all month. The skin shown in picture A is part of their advent promotion and is Noah V1 Caramel. Every day this month, more pieces of this skin package will become available on their advent calendar. The skin is excellent and I can’t wait to see the other pieces of the set. The skin in picture B is Seven Deadly s{K}ins’ 1L marketplace promo skin. It seems there are always promos and discounts going on and with lucky chairs and a midnight mania board as well, this group is an absolute bargain!

C – Tellaq – Monti – (FREE Midnight Mania board / 0L / FREE Group)

Any discussion of quality FREE male skins on SL has to include the fantastic Midnight Mania board at Tellaq. In picture C, I am wearing the current midnight mania board skin Monti with the hairier option and the optional 20% darker skin tone changer. Their skins have a tendency towards the extremely muscular and athletic, and they absolutely excel at darker tones especially. Since this is Tellaq we are talking about, the prize isn’t just a skin but a complete avatar package! The package includes sixteen styles of facial hair and an option for a hairier body on each one. Also included is a shape and some eyes as well, so this really is a full package that you can get for FREE! Join this FREE group and start collecting these skins, There is a good chance you will like Tellaq’s products.

Another great resource when you are looking for FREE Men’s skins is a store called Curves. They have multiple group gifts out in the store right now both FREE and for a nominal fee. The skin I am wearing in picture F is Group Gift-Boys-2-MAY and comes with a shape, although I did decide to use my own for the pic.

Summer in December

We are all used to Christmas in July, so how about Summer in December! After all, it’s Second Life! And it’s warm somewhere on the globe, right? There are plenty of beaches where you can show some skin, so I’ll show you where to find some skin to show!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 1

Al Vulo is an old favorite of mine, and this classic skin called Celestial – Diva Olive is FREE with your FREE group join if you stop by the store. It’s an oldie but goodie with dramatic make up and glossy lips that just make you want to pucker up! It comes with appliers for WowMeh, Phat Azz, Slink hands and feet, and Lolas too!

And check out the hair?! Diva for sure! Though it’s actually called India and is a Midnight Mania Board Prize currently at Besom. This gorgeous hair is yours FREE if you slap the board and lock it down, and the Besom group is FREE to join!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 2

If you are looking for a skin that has mature facial features, great details on the body (just look at that navel!) and lovely hip bone shadowing, then this gift skin called Lorna at New Faces is for you! This is another FREE gift with your FREE group join at the New Faces main store. Their are also some lovely make up gifts out there for you to pick up as well! This skin comes with a FREE sample shape as well, and if you want appliers you can pick those up in the store for reasonable prices.

Want to travel back in time instead? I found this great little gem of a necklace at Pixel Box. It looks like a compass but will also hold a photo. I popped into their main store and was able to buy it for just 50L. Many offerings their in store were 50L or less. And there was tons of gorgeous stuff. Well worth the stop!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 3

Deesses Boutique is offering a lovely group skin at the moment called Anika. It includes appliers for Slink hands and feet and there are appliers in store for all of your other applier needs! This skin is FREE with your group tag. The group is 99L to join, but includes monthly gifts – there have been several times lovely mesh clothing has even been included in the monthly round up of goodies! – so the small fee is worth your while.

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 4

Are you loving this skin in the picture above? Me too! Stop by LoveMe Skins and it is yours FREE with your group tag if you join the group FREE too! This gift box contains the skin Kathleen in two skin tones (Tan or Sunkiss – Astrid is wearing Sunkiss in the picture above), two cleavage layers, two lipsticks, a free shape, and appliers for Slink hands and feet! What a deal!

Free Skin Day [FabFree] 5

We all know the girl who just can’t get a tan no matter how long she is in the sun. Yup! That’s the skin I’m sporting for this last great find! If you join the Mystic Canvass group FREE and stop by their store, you can pick up this gorgeous FREE group gift skin called Xen. Xen comes in 4 skin tones (Astrid is wearing Snow – the palest of the four) and the gift package includes appliers for Phat Azz, Lolas, Slink hands and feet, as well as two cleavage options for each skin tone and two eyebrow options (Classic or Dramatic). This would make a terrific roleplay skin if you are not wanting that ‘needs a tan’ look! 😛

Were you admiring my beach wear? For just 75L per piece, you can dive into this deal on the MarketPlace and get this lovely Classic Bikini Bottom in Blue Stripes and/or the hawt to trot matching Halter Bikini Top, also in Blue Stripes. Just Because has swimwear (most all the pieces for 75L each) in different styles and colors for mix and match wear! A steal!

Be you Beautiful!

picmskinBeauty is being comfortable in your own skin!

So today I am going to show you some places to find a skin to be comfortable in!

I am going to give a nice close up pic so you can see the face details plus a step back pic coz I really think a good collar bone and cleavage makes a skin pop.

The nice thing is all the skins I found have a natural lip color making it easy to add lipstick should you like too.

PicM3 LH Gervaise Pic 1 – Lara Hurley – Gervaise

Love the freckles

FREE with FREE group join. Skin includes Slink hand & feet appliers, Phat Azz, Lolas, Tango and a hairbase.

PicM1 LH RIAH

Pic 2 – Lara Hurley – Riah

Good Goth skin

FREE with FREE group join. Skin includes Slink hand & feet appliers and eyebrows.
PicM2 PumeCPic 3 – PumeC – Ursula

Fully loaded skin.

FREE with 199L join fee. Skin includes tons of appliers in a super easy to use hud for mesh bodies (for all major brands out there) and heads (TMP, Genesis, Lelutka, Slink) You also get eyebrows in red, black, blonde, brown and none. Cleavage and teeth options too.

PicM5 GenesisSummerPic 4 – Genesis Lab– Summer

Nice way to get into mesh heads.

FREE with 250L join fee. This cream skin comes with a blank head and is intended for use with a Genesis Lab mesh head (head not included nor are head appliers so you will need a Genesis Lab cream skin head). I used Emily (relaxed – cream) which I snagged playing one of the gacha machines. The skin also includes ears, eyes, teeth, hairbase and a shape.

PicM4 LAQ light PicM3 LAQ darker

Pic 5 – LAQ – Camille

Big selection of skin tones.

FREE with FREE group join. No applies included but are sold at the store. 7 skins tones from fair to dark are included which is what I found really nice about this gift.

Its all about skins today but I just had to share this dress with everyone too. You can grab this Kalo mesh dress with it lovely detailing FREE from Tiffany Designs on marketplace. It comes with system fits in Fitmesh plus fits for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I do want to mention windlight setting can have a huge effect on how things look. Today I used Nam’s Optimal skin and prim which is a really nice everyday setting in my opinion and normally what I used to take my pictures.

Ok 1 last tidbit. The 7 Deadly Sk[i]ns group is FREE to join right now and is running a month long Advent calendar which means there is a new 1 day only gift available for FREE each day of Dec. Going by past gifts there should be some good presents to be had during the month.

It’s all about the Skins baby!

How could we possibly top our free hair day from November 1st? Why, a free skin day, of course! I went a little off the beaten path for my choices, with some Mother Goose Lucky Board freebies, as well as a couple of their dollarbies, and 2 skins from a newer to me store, Curves. Oh, and yes, this is my shape in each skin. I love how you can look completely different depending on you skin.

First up, the Mother Goose skins. Mother Goose has been around for a long time, and always has loads of fun and unique skins in their Lucky Boards, as well as plenty of Dollarbies to choose from. If you are familiar with their skins, you know that they do not come with anything other than the skin, with the occasional slightly adjusted version thrown in, and an eyebrow shaper. That means no appliers…but I had an easy enough time colour matching to my SLink hands and feet. Not sure how easy it will be for other body parts, but I know there are lots of you out there that are still rocking your standard system avs, like myself. The Lucky Boards have super fast timers, so there is barely any waiting to get these great skins. Oh, and men..there are some there for you too. It’s well worth visiting, or in my case, re-visiting, to fill up your skin folder.

Skins1Mother Goose Lucky Board Freebies
HENA(2) and Jamil-II(B)

Skins2Mother Goose Dollarbies
SiSi_III and Sia

The other store I went to is Curves. I recently showed you a pretty L$20 skin from here, but there were also a few free skins, so I figured I’d show them off too. The Mia Blue Dreams skin is located in the discount room, and is free for everyone, just buy the box for L$0. BTW, it has a pretty little snowflake just under the left eye, perfect for the season! The second skin I am wearing, is a free SLF&O group gift, you just need to have your tag on to get it. There are a few extra pieces with the Mia skin, such as a set of eyes, a shape, and eyebrows, as well, the SLF&O gift has extras, including appliers for Tangos, Phat Azz, SLink hands and feet, and Wowmeh.

Skins3Curves
Mia blue dreams (L$0) and SLF&O Gift (free group gift/free to join)

I hope you like the skins I chose to show you, but if none of these were to your tastes, both stores have many more options that are free and cheap to choose from, so explore away, and find yourself a new look. If only it were this easy in RL eh?

Until next time, TTFN!
