MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

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!

Bold

Coming Soon

Bold & Beautiful

First off, I have some exciting the news to share that Bold & Beauty & Rebel Gal‘s store group is currently free to join. This group used to be paid, so now is a great time to join and grab their group gifts for free. My hairstyle and my golden choker are both free group gifts, and they certainly help you create a bold and beautiful look.

Makeover Time

I’ve been playing around with my Lelutka EvoX head lately, and have been in the process of a makeover. There are a bunch of freebies and cheapies in this post which I collected from all over the grid recently to put my new look together. I’m just going to list them all! Let’s go!

  • My lovely eyes are a group gift from Euphoric, called Hope Eyes. This is an older gift, but I wanted to mention that they recently updated the eyes to work with Lelutka EvoX heads! Just pop over to the store, join the free group and get a new copy of these eyes as well as the Magic Lenses eyes; both products have updated to work with the new Lelutka EvoX heads! The eyes fit Lelutka Evo/EvoX heads, Lelutka Origin, Genus, and Catwa heads.
  • The lovely eyeshadow I am wearing is a free group gift at Tutti Belli. The eyeshadow fits LelutkaEvoX only and it comes in several tones of shimmery colours.
  • Speaking of Tutti Belli, I also grabbed the gorgeous “Selfish Lipstick Collection” with my 800L store credit, which Jacx talked about at length in her blogpost here. The free 800L store credit expires today, and you need the free group to get them. This lip applier gives my avatar a much more realistic look, and it fits LelutkaEvoX only. The lipstick collection costs 499L, leaving room for more free store purchases with the gift credit.
  • My lovely, soft skin is from the 1L sale board at 7 Deadly S[K]ins. I visit this board almost every day and I try to collect any new skins! They appear and reappear often and each offer is only 1L. So if you can’t snag it today keep an eye out; it might come around again! This is the Mercy skin, and it’s on the board for 1L at the time of my posting. It comes in a fatpack of 10 skin tones. The skin fits LelutkaEvoX only.
  • I am also wearing a free neck fix from 7 Deadly S[K]ins which is designed to be worn with their Lelutka EvoX skins. It removes any neck seam completely as long as you match the skin with 7 Deadly S[K]ins tones! They have boxes out of these neck fixes out for free around the store.
  • The faux fur stole is one of the FLF fifty linden deals going on at Blueberry right now. The boa comes in a pack of colours, and it is quite elegant. It fits Reborn, Freya, Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, Perky, Petite, Physique, and Venus. This item is only on sale for a limited time, and you can read more details about it and see a 50L gown from the sale in my recent post here.

See you soon, FabFree!
