MakeOver Monday part 3

Hey Guys and Gals, it’s Monday so that means our next installment of “MakeOver Monday” is on the air. Or on the web… or whatever.  First I want to say a big THANKS to Karl Jacob who gave me the tip that Altamura had a new free avatar gift at the  eBento Event! I popped over and grabbed the male gift “TakeMYWay”. And I may have done a little happy dance when I saw it was BoM ready! Then I got it set up and I was SO much happier with this avatar. Right out of the box he is miles ahead of poor “Robert”. The shape is nicer and the face is so much less “I’m gonna cut you” angry. He also comes with his own skin and since he’s BoM ready I won’t have any trouble finding more skins and tattoos, etc. for him.  

But for every step forward…  Unfortunately, “TakeMYWay” does not come with a body HUD of any sort. So we are stuck using alpha layers for clothes. Which (in my opinion) is extremely inconvenient. So many mesh clothes don’t even come with alpha layers anymore. So there is that. It’s almost a deal breaker for me. Your mileage may vary. 

 

So, moving on. As you recall we were going to talk about hair today. Again, this was soooo much easier for Kerydwyn. But I found three styles for each of them but there are more out there.  Let’s look at the Ladies first. I also changed, Kerydwyn’s skin to show some of the basic BoM skins you already have in your inventory. Just look under the ‘Clothing’ folder. You’ll also find some hair there too. Some of it, is rather nice, especially the newer mesh avatar’s hair. 

Fist is Firelight. The group is free to join and they offer many gifts and several lucky chairs. The best thing is they offer a gift card for 250L to new avatars ( 30 days old or less ) and unlike some gift cards this one is enough to buy a regular hair completely. This is the “Monica” one of the past group gifts available. I’m showing the “Anna” skin from the Inventory too.

Next is “Leela” Hair from Analog Dog. When you hit the landing point, just walk to your left all the way to the ‘coast’ where you’ll see a big glowing ball. Click it and get a selection of free hair. I’m showing the “Kimberly” skin here once again, in your inventory.

Last we have “Tsarina” from A&A. This is the free group gift for the Fabulously Free Group. Of course, FabFree is free to join.

For Alistar, the selection was a bit more challenging. Free hair for the guys is few and far between but it is out there. Having said this, I think this is where I would get off the free ride and lay out some Lindens. The group for N0_Match is 50L and with that you get monthly gifts for BOTH men and women ( Usually a Unisex style) and you get access to literally dozens of past gifts with many many male styles. 50L is literally 0.21 cents USD… I can find that in the couch cushions… ( A note here… yes, it’s 21cents but the minimum amount you can buy is $2.50… so I’d have to check under my car seats too.)   If you’re set on free, do check out the mesh hair in your inventory. The ‘Brandon’, ‘Johnny’ and ‘Wyatt’ hairs aren’t bad.

So first here is “Mike” from Sintiklia. The Group is free to join and there are loads of Group Gifts to pick up. And don’t forget to check the ladies hair as well. Lots of styles are aimed at women but are more unisex.

Modulus’s “Cole”. You can get it on the MarketPlace or in-store and you get the entire Fatpack of colors. This is an extremely well made hair. And the fact that’s free is just icing on the cake.

Lastly is one of those hairs sold as a ladies style but I think it works as unisex. I found “yume” from ASO on the MarketPlace and there doesn’t appear to be an in-world store.  Again, this was the result of a “Free Hair” search on the MarketPlace.

 

Okay, that’s going to do it for today. I thought I’d get to Inventory control today but I’m thinking that actually needs it’s own post. SO until next week, my dears!

And remember, comments, ideas, opinions etc. are ALWAYS welcome! So let me know what you’re thinking!

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as some blooms in the middle of winter.  When you think about how outside (at least in my part of the world) is cold and barren, with many months to go until things start to poke their heads out of the earth, it is comforting to think that you can grow some pretties indoors.  And if you don’t have a green thumb, virtual blooms will do just fine!

Cozyfest Continues

Yesterday, I told you about the 50L items you can pick up at Cozyfest, but today I’m showing off some of the free gifts that are just as delightful.  To get these gifts, just join the Fifty Linden Fridays group for free, and click on the box located at each stall. Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE dress by CandyDoll sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya & V-Tech
  • FREE lollipop by Lyrium
  • FREE flowers and table by Kraftwork

It’s all just so lovely!  What a fab event.  It’s still quite busy, so if you can’t get in, don’t despair –  you have until February 4th.

Keep on blooming, FabFree!

Artfully Done

Artfully Done

Nothing like a Tuesday artistic interlude.  One of the best things about SL is always being able to switch up your interiors, your exteriors, and who knows what else.  I love decorating in Second Life, though sometimes it becomes rather time consuming and I have to take a step back before I lose my mind.  An easy way to change things up without pulling out all your hair is always through artwork, and I think I have just the place for you if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration…

First Things First

It’s all about the clothing for me in SL, most days, some of which is definitely wearable art.  I’ll first tell you about where I picked up this stunning sparkly dress!  Head on over to Posh Event, and there you’ll find that several of the designers have put out free gifts for everyone.  No need to join a group, just buy the gift for 0L.  I grabbed this cool dress (what a slit!) over at the Luna Chelsea booth (it comes with a rather extensive HUD, and also a little ribbon belt too), but there are quite a few other gifts too if you’re looking for more goodies.  The Posh Event runs until January 23rd!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Museum Visit

It’s always fun to discover new places in SL, and I was contacted about the Free Museum, which is exactly what it purports to be:  a museum filled to the gills with free artwork.  Yep, you can even take it all home with you.  Just buy the artwork for 0L, and put it up wherever your heart desires.  There are even statues so you can go full Guggenheim when the fancy strikes.  What a cool idea!  I hope you have a fun time discovering your new favourite artists.

Have an artistic evening!

Happy Monday FabFree!  I’m pretending that I’m heading off to a ball pool to sink under the surface and run away from all my responsibilities!  They’ll never find me under all the colourful balls, right?  It’s an infallible plan!

Saki Time

Alright it’s time for another round of Saki Event!  This small but fun event has a few free and 1L gifts scattered in all the booths.  Just be careful when you click, because some of the items are free and some are 1L – and some refund the 1L once you’ve bought it.  Confusing, I know… that’s ok!  It’s still a great deal no matter how much you pay. The top I’m wearing is the gift from Believe which is free (you’ll get the 1L refunded), and the glasses case I’m holding is from Horl and cost me just 1L.  There are a few other cool gifts too while you’re there!

Top Sizes

  • Kalhene
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite
  • Reborn

To Go With

I got this pair of shorts to go with my top over at the Believe mainstore.  They come with a belt that matches too, but I didn’t add it to my outfit.  You can get them (plus a matching BOM bodysuit) by joining the TeleportHUB group for 10L and clicking on the vendor.  There are plenty of other awesome gifts as part of this group, so a good one to join for sure.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Perhaps this outfit is just a little too cute to hide….

A Treatise on Animal Print

A Treatise on Animal Print

I’m not usually one for animal print, but once in a while I’ll break my self-imposed rule of keeping away from it.  The reason for my usual aversion is that time period in the early 2000’s where everything was snakeskin belly shirts and ostrich purses.  Wasn’t really my thing and all that animal print left me feeling a bit cold.  And yet, here I am in some rather cool snakeskin.  Rules were meant to be broken!

The Showcase

Designer Showcase are celebrating their anniversary with plenty of great free gifts.  To pick up the goodies, just join the free Designer Showcase group and then click on the gifts that are at most stalls.  Here’s what I got:

  • FREE romper by Le’La sized for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine & Venus
  • FREE ring by Sofia
  • FREE nail polish by Cazimi with appliers for Maitreya and Omega, as well as Mesh nails for Legacy, Maitreya and Slink in several colours

This round of Designer Showcase is running until January 25th.

Sassy in snakeskin indeed!
