Hello Fabulous Folks! I got Kerydwyn out and about again today since she is rockin’ LeLutka’s last gift head, Raven and I saw that Sugar Riott has two very nice Group Gifts out right now, one for the Raven head and the Quinn head.
This is the “012” shape from Sugar Riott and you can get it for freewhen you join their free Group. This is a full body and head shape. It is modifiable. You will get a separate shape for Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya and Reborn. So it should fit you perfectly. One extra plus, the gift comes with a notecard for full styling including landmarks to the various merchants. I wish ALL designers did that for us!
Verrry curvy and verrry busty!
As with all Group Gifts, this one may change at any time. Also, the Group is free to join as of this posting but that may also change. So if you need to get shapely, you need to head over soon!
Hello hello, Fab Fam! I hope ya’ll had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and fun festivities. We had a quiet little Christmas here at home but it was still a lovely time.
Now I know that the big day of gifting is over but we have SO many things still going on in SL. Like the 54 event headed up by LeLutka. See what I did there? 😛 As Ms Aline showed us, Lelutka is giving away two gorgeous full version mesh Heads: Raven and Quinn. And I got all inspired to make a totally FREE avatar with only things off the 54 list.
Remember our kids, Kerydwyn and Alistar from the “Makeover Mondays” posts? I rounded them up again to make fresh new avis! Let’s start with Kerydwyn since the list is mostly female oriented. As per last time, Kerydwyn is wearing the free version of the Legacy Classic mesh body and it’s the only thing I didn’t get off of the 54 Event list. I will be doing a guys only post tomorrow with Alistar using the 54 List.
Lots of designers are offering their take on the Raven head, in fact most of the skin gifts included their own face shape and brow shape. I picked the “Nicole” shape and skin from Clef De Peau. And believe me, it was hard to pick just one shape from all the gorgeous one on the list. The Nicole shape will shape your entire body not just the head for a nice cohesive look.
I also ended up wearing the Nicole “RoseKiss” skin from Clef De Peau made to match the Velour skin tones. It’s such a nice fresh faced skin with subtle details and a sweet glow to it. I did however love many of the other skins. There’s a skin for just about everyone here. From super vampire pale to deep exotic darks. In fact, Moccino’s gift is all shades of delicious browns and ambers and Nuve has ten fantasy colored skins too!
The body skin is from Velour and as always it’s a stunning creation. Velour is giving out full body skins for Legacy and Reborn. This is the “Venus Athletic” design body skin, “RoseKiss”. I love when designers collaborate and make for the shades offered by other designers. But, if you need a neck blender, I HIGHLY recommend the free fixes from Bold & Beauty which is another free gift on the 54 List.
EDITED to add -> I do apologize, the neck fixes are contained in the gift for “Nicholas”. While that gift is free, the fixes are designed for male skins/anatomy. So your mileage may vary
Now on to eyes. This is the “Mistletoe Collection” from Gloom. It’s a nice little fatpack of eye colors ranging from blue to brown and a neat half and half colored one. The gift includes BOM versions and appliers for LeLutka and Omega.
There are several designers offering hair bases for the List but my favorite is this sleek style from Not Found. This designer is offering a collaboration with Doux for this event. The hair bases lines up with a super long pony tail which you pick up at the Doux shop. As you can see, I skipped the pony tail and went with a sweet bow and bun. “The Gift Hair” from Studio Exposure comes with a HUD for 8 colors of ribbon and 33 hair colors for the bun. Plus you get the cute little flexi bangs too.
Last but certainly not least are the beautiful earrings from Andore. These are the “Igdry” set. In the gift you’ll find pairs for both LeLutka Evo X human ears and the Elf ears and a HUD to change both the gem colors and the metals. Not little HUDs either… HUDS with 7 metals and 10 colors of gems. There are also a pair of free Christmas earrings at Andore too!
So there she is! A full avatar for free! Now is a great time to get a top of the line mesh head and skins, shapes and makeup and hair from some of SL best designers. Lookin’ like champagne on a beer budget! The 54 Event requires you to join each designers Group to grab the gifts but all the groups are set to free. This is a great time to get in those groups that may be too expensive at other times of the year. And be sure to look around each shop. Many have loads of free group gifts out as well as the 54 List ones. I was able to pick up a ton of free eyeshadows and lipsticks as well as other skins.
And one last note. I did not edit the shape you see at all. I simply wore what the designers gave us. That said, the shapes are modifiable! So find one you like and use it as a base or a starting point to design your own look if you don’t like the “right out of the box” look.
The 54 Event only runs until Dec. 30th! That’s just a few more days to get your hands on all the wonderful gifts! Here is a quick link to the page from Lelutka that lists all the stores and has direct Teleports.

“Looks like a girl, but she’s a flame So bright, she can burn your eyes Better look the other way”
Now that this song stuck in my head I have a few more gifts to share with you today! There are so many events with gifts and hunts around the grid this month. It’s always fun to put to an outfit together with the gifts from these happenings, So let’s get to the details, why don’t we.
Swank & Kustom9 & Shop & Hop! Weeeeee!!
When you head over to Swank and join the free group you can grab oodles of gifts. One of the gifts that really caught my eye once I unpacked it is the Agni outfit from Luxe Paris. The package contains an entire outfit as pictured above. It has a top, pants, sleeves, heels, tattoos and even hair! Ordinarily this hair style wouldn’t turn my head but it really completes the look. Lots of details went into this outfit. You get to show a little skin with the cute cat tattoos on the upper arms. I think it’s a super fun look.
Tattoos are Regular/BOM with appliers for Maitreya & Omega
The cute cat earrings I’m wearing are a gift from Kustom9. The Pumkitty earrings are a free gift courtesy of Andore. My nails are covered in Luna Body Arts Jack! polish, yet another gift at Swank! The polish comes with appliers for Slink, Belleza, & Maitreya. Above is a better view of the hair included in the Agni package. Looks like my hair is on fire! Loving it!
What are you waiting for?? Get out there and join the madness!

This incredibly close up picture has a lot to share. Really!
The Light, The Heat
Shall I wax poetic about eyes? Eyes are soooo important to your look, y’all. Good quality eyes are the perfect finishing touch and such a vital detail. If you’re not sure where to find some good, affordable, quality eyes then Yoshi is an excellent place to start. The group is 10L to join and these gorgeous, silvery, reflective eyes are the most recent free group gift. There are also lots of really fantastic “regular” (ha what a funny word to use in SL) and fantasy eyes set out as free group gifts too. There’s certainly something that will suit your look. AND it couldn’t be simpler, because they include appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega plus some mesh and BOM versions. You won’t regret it!
Speaking of no regrets, I’ve been trying to scale down my skin purchases lately. I mean, they’re all on sale but buying up every gorgeous skin I see adds up. That means maybe one or two purchases per week from my favorite skin designers, if any at all. Hey, it’s a start! Glam Affair put out this irresistible face for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday and it’s still there today. Yup, 50L will get you Song in the basic line in the whole range of skin tones, with and without eyebrows, PLUS blush a bunch of makeup add-ons! No regrets!
Last but not least, I’m showing off some makeup from Vizatti Beau. I’m not good at makeup in either life but I think this finishes things off nicely. the group at Vizatti Beau is free to join and I’m wearing one of the eyeliners from the Overheated Collection which is a free group gift. There are some other colorful and dramatic sets to chose from while you’re there, also available as free group gifts.

Oh for the love of Belle Epoque, how stunning is this dress? Belle Epoque has their weekend sales out and this one is a real show stopper. It’s available in a range of silky colors for Happy Weekend at 60L each (including sizes for Maitreya and Legacy), but I thought the black was sufficiently spooky for the season and perfectly formal for the rest of the year too.
But Wait, There’s More
Belle Epoque has also been spoiling us with group gifts lately. There are a handful that I hadn’t picked up yet. Among them were the drippy necklace in a smattering of colors that I’m wearing in red and also the headband adorned with a bow. Just the right accessories for your Halloween needs. You can get them from the wall to your right when you walk into the store with the other group gifts, and the Belle Epoque group is an incredibly worthwhile 50L to join.
