Lovely knitwear

Taking cues from your peers.

Upon reading Carson latest blog post {HERE} I was inspired to head down to Prism Designs to check and see if there was a group gift out for the ladies as well. I’ve been a longtime member of the Prism Designs group thanks to being introduced to this particular merchant via the FabFree blog, specifically Julianna’s posts, and have kept the group tag since those early SL days due to Prism’s top notch products, great deals, and frequent gifts. With that being said, it didn’t take very much poking around at all to locate the new group gift at Prism Designs and when I saw what it was, it made me rethink the theme of that ‘blog segment’ that I had planned on doing.

It’s all about keeping warm and toasty.

What I had originally had in mind centered around ball gowns and party wear but with the chill, upon us, I thought I’d highlight the often understated knitwear. At face value, it’s probably not as exciting as demon dresses or warrior armor but hey, this is SL and I’m sure I’ll find some interesting designs to wear. Hence I bring to you today the Paige dress, the new and free group gift from Prism Designs mentioned above. If you have to brave the cold then why not opt for something that will not only make you feel snug and cozy but looks it as well. Personally, I feel that the Paige dress strikes a good balance between being form flattering and comfortable to wear. It’s tan belt really accentuates the waistline but is a simple enough accessory that it doesn’t overwhelm the dress’ loose high neck. If you’re looking to be a stand out while walking the snowy streets this season then the Paige dress will certainly work in your favor when it’s warm magenta coloring contrasts with the icy backdrop. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) with a nifty alpha layer included. As it is almost to the end of November, I’m not sure how long this gift will be out so hurry on down to Prism Designs today to join their free group and get your hands on this awesome dress. While you’re there do check out the gifts and hunts room to pick up the other group gifts that are out and to also check out the different hunts that Prism Designs are currently participating in. Have fun!

Don’t you just love an extension?

I certainly do, especially when it comes to real life deadlines (lol) Sometimes extension mean good things in SL and the prime example of that is the sale at Truth being extended until 12-noon slt today! The sale was mentioned {HERE} by Love and {HERE} by Kathryn, but to give you a refresher 48 selected hair styles a the Truth Mainstore have been marked down to 75L per color pack (100 L per variety pack and 500 L per fatpack) The hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture is called Foxy and comes with hat/no hat variations as well as hair of different sizing so that it doesn’t cut into your front. There are two alpha layers provided with one that covers up the avatars ears in case you don’t want those sticking out. What’s more both the hair and hat comes with extensive huds giving you the ability to customize to your heart’s content. If you’ve missed out on the Truth Hair sale so far don’t delay as there are other great quality hairstyles to be had.

How about a pretty pair of heels?

There’s really nothing that gives an outfit an extra punch like statement shoes do. I’m a big fan of bright shoes in my first life, which would probably explain why I saw drawn to this pink pair from Kendrasy Creations. These heels are only for Slink High feet and I just love its sweet hue and minimalist design. The bright color though really speaks for itself and I’ll be wearing this pair for a while. Pop down to Kendrasy Creations for this dollarbie. You don’t have to wear any specific group tag to get in on this great bargain.

Hitting two birds with one stone.

Not that I’m about to be throwing stones at any innocent birds but do you remember the post I made {HERE} detailing the gorgeously metallic pair of shoes that are currently out as Enertia’s group gift? Well, joining the Toxxic Design Studios group also gives you access to group gifts from the AlterEgo skin store as well! The skin that I’m wearing in the picture above is called Natalia in the sunkissed tone. As a fan of subtle makeup and full eyebrows, I fell in love with this skin instantly. In the package, you’ll get three different classic skin with dark brows, light brows, and no brow options as well as a varied number of appliers. Those are:

  • Appliers for Loudmouth
  • Appliers for mesh heads that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Soul Uni Standard and Mer
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP mesh bodies
  • Appliers for Mesh bodies that are Omega system compatible
  • Appliers for Slink, Belleza, and Maireya mesh feet

The final four appliers are in one easy to use Hud so it doesn’t take up inventory space. The Toxxic Designs Studio group is currently set a 0L join fee and as both AlterEgo and Enertia give you group gifts regularly, I suggest you go and snap the current ones asap. You’ve got nothing to loose by joining this free and only a gorgeous, well-detailed skin to gain.

And that’s a wrap for today! Have fun in your SL explorations dear readers. Stay safe!

Gaps in the wardrobe.

Gaps? But Sheidey what are you talking about? Some Second Life inventories are possibly related to literal black holes! In all seriousness, though I took a good long look at the theoretical mass (and mess!) that is my inventory and realized that I didn’t have very many options when it came to pants. Needing a quick fix and seeing as throwing away my dresses and skirts were out of the question, I decided to hit some sales. In my previous post {HERE} I mentioned a store called Wertina and not only do they sell some great shoes, but they also have a good variety of clothing items in stock as well. Pictured is the Biker pants in black that are simply a study in fitted leather and look great at any angle. The leather studs that go down on either side of the pants are a great feature just like the distressed leather detailing around the knees. The Biker pants come in five standard mesh sizes (XS-L) with an alpha layer included and cost just 15L because of the closing down sale that Wertina is holding. Pop down to the store to browse! With everything marked down to 5L-35L, you might just find something to fill up the gaps in your wardrobe too.  The closing sale at Wertina ends on the 31st of December.

More metallic goodness!

Now that I have a perfect pair of pants, I was determined to find some fitting footwear for it. Luckily enough Enertia is offering up the Kehlani heels as a free group gift and the metallic sheen to the straps and body of these shoes was exactly what I was looking for. Personally, I feel that the edgy style of these heels paired off nicely with the outfit, but if metallics aren’t your cup of tea there’s also a Hud included in the gift package with five other color options. What’s more, you’ll be getting sizing for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet as well. Add the Kehalni heels into your shoe collection today by joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group for free.

It’s a hair affair!

Hairology has been a hot topic here with the ladies of FabFree and rightly so as the 1st Anniversary of the event is filled with awesome goodies from top quality designers. I found the final touch to my outfit there in the form of a dollarbie hair gift from Vanity Hair. Buns have such a bad rep for being uptight but this beautifully textured updo is simply elegant. Natural colors isn’t something that I’d usually go for when hairstyles are concerned but this gift and it’s Hud that contains four rich tones to choose from certainly inspired me to give the ‘naturals’ a chance. While there is no alpha layer provided, there’s a nifty resizer in the hud which makes fitting hassle free and the hairdo itself has copy permissions enabled so that you can make duplicates for backup. This round of Hairology closes at the end of the month so don’t miss out!

For more coverage on the gifts at Hairology check out these posts:

 In plain sight.

While slapping the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins the other day I ran into (literally, thanks lag) this free gift in the games room. This very generous gift contains the classic Soraya skin in the tan tone with both cleavage/no cleavage options as well as appliers for Phat Azz, Slink Hands and Feet, Ghetto Booty and Lolas Tango. You’ll also receive a brow base and shape but my favorite aspect of this skin aside from the fact that it’s totally free are the two freckles tattoo layer that comes included in the package as well. My very first skin in SL was freckled as well so it was good to come back to the look after a while away.

Speaking of going back to old looks, I’ve gone back to blue-grey eyes as well after experimenting with different colored peepers. The aptly named Athena eyes are a free gift from Mesange and not only will you be receiving system eyes but mesh ones as well with Genesis and Omega Huds. I feel wiser already for snapping up this gift and maybe I’ll be sticking to this pair for a while.

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Have fun out there dear readers. Till next time!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Snapshot_003

Hi there Fabulous Readers! I just don’t even believe it… I have barely gotten over the excitement about the first TRUTH Hair group gift that came out a couple weeks back (First shown [HERE] by Kathryn and is still available for pick up instore), and now in celebration of 4500 group members, Truth Hawks has sent out another fatpack of hair in the notices!  This group is 265L to join, but currently you can pick up both gifts in full fatpacks… so that’s a killer deal in my opinion!

Sugar is her name…

Sugar is her name, and a loose top bun updo with a variety of bang and whispy attachments is her game!  The versatility of these short/long whisps will be especially handy in this sweater/jacket/scart season so that you can find the right pieces that don’t interfere with your outfit!

Where to find it:

According to the Truth Customer Service Rep, Padma Scorpio… “Gifts will expire in notices after 14 days and then will be available in the main store for a total duration of 1 month after which they will no longer be available.” (this message was found in group notices as well)

Side note about the pose used:

I have used Raindale ‘s Tree Swing Spring Gift Pose that you can pick up for 1L at the Raindale shop!  No need to join a group – just go grab it for a linden😉.  It comes with a few different natural swing sitting poses, adjustment and swing option.

Slowly Going Nowhere

Slowly Going NowhereHello again Fab Free’rs! Finally it’s starting to feel like fall where I live. I’m excited to be able to dig out more of my fall wardrobe. Until now, my virtual wardrobe has had to support my love of cold weather clothing. That said, I also find I spend more time outside when the weather is colder. There was something interesting in unique about the “Acid Rain” group gift from Death Row Designs. While definitely not the ideal patio furniture, it certainly tells a story. I also styled my outfit for the cooler weather using a dollarbie hunt prize sweater from Vindiktive.

Role-play is such a huge part of Second Life, and even though I rarely participate in that aspect these days, I’m always inspired by creations in SL that lend themselves to storytelling. After all, story telling is essentially what role-play is all about. This FREE group gift chair and umbrella set from Death Row Designs does just that. The “Acid Rain” set of ruined furniture is highly detailed and has both male and female poses for the chair. Also included in the gift are two hand-held umbrellas which are not shown. When I saw this gift, I instantly thought about where these items had been, who they belonged to, what had happened. It made me think of situations where this furniture fit the scenario, like a post apocalyptic environment. The story started to unfold. That’s why I chose to share this unique gift with you. The Death Row Designs group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to get this gift.
THLH VindiktiveNext up, you guessed it, my sweater loving soul found another sweater! This one is the “The High Life Hunt” prize at Vindiktive. I’m not often a fan of high cropped sweaters, but this one I adore. I like the fall colors of the plaid, and the material texture looks like it would be soft and warm to the touch. I even like the mock turtleneck. This hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so the sweater costs just 1 linden. There are no groups to join, just head out to Vindiktive and hunt it down. Included in the package you’ll get the sweater in standard mesh sizes, as well as body specific sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hour Glass, Maitreya Lara, Bellezia (Isis, Freya, Venus), and TMP. With all the sizes included, this top should be easy to wear for most mesh and classic avatars.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Shhh! I’m hunting turkeys

Shhh! I'm hunting turkeys

 Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Feature!

As mentioned by Loki {HERE} there are a number of fun hunts running this month so be ready to spend your cool autumn days scampering across the grid in search for those odds and ends. Being an avid hunter myself, I geared right up and decided that, for starters, I was going to set my sights on one Jerky Turkey. Rumor has it that it’s been shedding feathers and leaving presents in several top quality stores.

While on the trail I stopped by Sevyn East to see if I could get my hands on that Turkey but alas, there was no sign of him. Lucky for me though it left a single orange feather as a clue and even luckier still there was a great present attached. Opening it up I discovered the Fall Dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) for classic avatars and sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink bodies as well. There is an alpha layer included in the package that I found really helpful with the fitting. I simply adore the preppy style of this dress and the little bow on its waistline not only speaks to my girlish side but is also an appreciated well-made detail. Speaking of well-made, the Fall Dress boasts great textures with its tartan collar and skirt and the brown woolen knit of the top is perfect for the fall chill. The outfit comes with a cute Turkey shaped bag too with a pose or no pose option so you don’t have to worry about accessorizing. All you need to do to own the Fall Dress is to hunt out the orange feather located in the Sevyn East main store and buy it for 1L. The Jerky Turkey Hunt is ending at the end of the month so good luck to all those feather collectors out there!

How about some fancy and free footwear?

It’s probably really obvious by now that I love all types of boots and am an enthusiastic shoe collector. The words ‘shoe sale’ inspire so much joy and excitement that I was actually squealing when I discovered that Moda is not only having a big blowout of its Slink only shoes but was offering five free pairs as well. The Abierta Zippered boots that I’m wearing in the picture is one of those free pairs and comes with an extensive hud which enables you to customize the colors on almost every part of the shoe. It’s a shoe addicts dream and unfortunately, like all dreams, it will have to end. The sale is only running for two weeks and at the time of writing this a week or so has passed so hurry, hurry, hurry down.
Shh! I'm hunting turkeys

More goodies!

The size of my shoe collection is rivaled only by the number of skins that I own (only in SL does that sentence not sound very very creepy lol). All you skin fanatics out there should ready yourselves to teleport because 7 Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Dawn skin as an appreciation gift. It’s exactly as its exactly as its name suggests and is fresh-faced look with the subtle makeup that is a hallmark of the 7 Deadly s{K}ins design.  In the package, you will receive the Dawn classic skin in two tones (Marshmellow and Taupe) with cleavage/no cleavage options. There are also Slink hands and feet appliers and TMP Installers available for both tones. If you’re heading down be sure to grab a guy friend as that appreciation gift contains a skin for men as well! Not only is this appreciation gift available for free but you don’t have to be a member of the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group to be able to snap it up. Personally, I do recommend joining the group as a 400L gift card is being given away as a group gift this month, plus members enjoy a good number of perks. If you’re interested the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group costs 150L to join.

To keep that fall feel alive I opted to wear the Pumpkinette hair from Adoness. I don’t own many short hair styles but I fell in love with this wavy one right away. Plus, I’m always such a fan of hair adornments and you don’t get any more unique than seasonal fall fruits. The Pumpkinette hair is available as a group gift for members of the Adoness group but if you’re not currently enrolled never fear as you’ll be able to pick up this hairstyle for 1L. Adoness has a group join up fee of 25 L

As long as we’re on the subject of pumpkins, I’m wearing the aptly named Pumpkin eyes from Demicorn that are available as a free group gift from SaNaRae’s latest round. In the package, you will receive classic eyes as well as mesh ones with an alpha layer to go with. If you want to make that creepy look low key with Halloween being over and all then these eyes are the way to go. For more ‘everyday goth’ ideas check out Pru’s post {HERE} in which she coins the term and shows off more group gifts from SaNaRae.

And that wraps it up! Have a happy and safe weekend everyone! Till next time.

Want A Shot At A Lucky Empire?

Snapshot_001
Good evening Fabulouses!  I’m stopping in real quick tonight to share news about a couple of things I found that I thought were great deals and as a bonus, they look marvelous together!  My outfit today consists of a group lucky board prize at Empire and a 1L dollarbie find in the N-Uno Marketplace store.  I’ll tell you more about them below:

About the sexy harnessed dress

The very pretty Shot Dress as shown in my photo can be found in the N-Uno marketplace store for just 1L.  I am displaying the beige colour, but if you investigate further into their listings, you’ll see that you can pick it up in three colours at 1L each.

  1. Beige
  2. Yellow
  3. Peach

In the folder you’ll find mesh sizes XXS-L.  Normally I am a mesh size S, but I bumped up to a M in this dress.  You might want to try a size larger if you are having trouble squeezing in like I was.  An alpha layer is included for those that require it.

A fatpack of caged sandal boots?  Yes please!

I am in love with Empire‘s Primula design!  I am not sure if you would call this a boot or a sandal, but  I am going to go with “caged sandal boots”!  If you are an inworld group member of the Empire paid group (499L to join) you can stalk the three group lucky boards available only to members that contain fatpacks of some really great footwear.  Primula is just the one that I was lucky enough to see an “L” on so far!  I’ll be stalking for the others soon.  Don’t forget when you join this group you gain a whole year’s worth of VIP gifts too!  You can see some of them that have been blogged on FabFree below:

GET YOUR HUNT ON

November is proving to be a month for hunting. I took a look at the number of hunts on the grid, and I’m excited to say that I almost didn’t know where to begin. Between the Menstuff Hunt, The Medieval Fantasy Hunt, the El Dia Los Muertos Hunt, and so many others, this month is proving to be a Hunter’s Dream come true! I finally decided to start out my hunting with El Dia Los Muertos, though, since it is traditionally celebrated at the beginning of November, even if the hunt lasts through to the end of November. There are many wonderful prizes to to be had for your hunting time and 1L for each prize.

I made my initial stop by Roped Passion’s, as the creator has never let me down when it comes to creative attire. And as usual, there is a terrific hunt gift set out, and men have not been forgotten. (Ladies there is a gorgeous dress in the prize for you too, but I decided not to wear it in this post.😉 )

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Your hunt prize includes the Modern Day of the Dead suit for men in all the standard mesh sizes (it is one piece for easy fitting) as well as its own alpha. You will also get a separate and optional mesh mask. The mask is editable as far as resizing to easily fit to different size heads/faces. I did a bit of tweaking to get it to fit to my face without any trouble.

The suit has a terrific texture on the sleeves and cuffs, but also on the back. In order to show you the design on the back, I’m including the vendor advertisement below so you can see the back of the outfit as well. It’s well worth teleporting to the Roped Passion’s main-store to hunt down this 1L prize!

Infected Zombie Hunter

Infected Zombie HunterI found my Halloween costume, and just in time too! It seems like zombies and zombie hunters are everywhere this year, and for good reason. Like the vampires of years past, zombies have taken over television and movies in a big way. That said, when I saw this wicked bloody tank top from COCO, my mind instantly went to zombie land. Thankfully, Second Life is awash with creativity, and I was able to find most of what I needed to put this look together without letting go of too many lindens.

I mentioned the tank top as the centerpiece that inspired this “Infected Zombie Hunter” look. It’s one of several FREE group gifts available at COCO. Before I go into detail about the top, when going to the COCO store to add this to your wardrobe, be mindful of which section you’re shopping in. The COCO store is huge, and there are sections dedicated to their doll avatars as well as regular avatars. You’ll find a version of this top in both sections, so don’t get fooled like I did. Make sure you’re in the section with ladies clothing and not doll clothes. LOL That little bit of information out of the way, once you’re in the right place you’ll find a full wall of group gifts with a group joiner near by. The COCO group is FREE to join. Once you’re wearing your COCO group tag, all the gifts are FREE as well, just click the vendors. This bloody tank top gift is fully mesh, and comes in several body fit sizes, and standard mesh sizes.Infected Zombie Hunter CloseAnyone who knows me knows it would be completely out of character for me to go all gore and no glam, even on Halloween. I needed to be a little bloody but still wanted to keep it pretty, Izzie’s had just the thing. These bloody eyes and lips are from an applier package I found by Izzie’s for FREE on the Marketplace. The listing says it’s a limited time Halloween gift, so I’d imagine after today (Oct. 31st) the price will go up. These delicate blood drips can be applied either to the eyes, the lips, or both in 3 shades of red. This FREE set includes appliers for as well as classic system layers. I’m really thrilled with the end result, so don’t miss out on this fun bit of gore by Izzie’s while you can still get it at this fantastic freebie.

Speaking of the Marketplace, I also stumbled across this set of bloody eyes by Inkheart. These mesh eyes were just too perfect to pass up, especially since they are just 1 linden. These “vampire” eyes come in 3 mesh sizes, along with matching system layers. I think they would be spook-tacular with any ghoulish costume!

Continuing on with the idea of being glamorous at all times, this manicure from ZOZ was the perfect finishing touch. Who says a Zombie Hunter can’t have perfectly polished claws?! This particular shade of glossy red is part of the Fab Free exclusive group gift at ZOZ. Just wear your Fab Free tag and click the vendor on the circulation desk at the ZOZ main store, and you’ll be sent your FREE gift. The set has also been featured in one of Katherine’s beautiful posts, and of course in the Fab Free Group Gift Listing by Love.  The Fab Free Group Gift List shows the full set of fall colors that are included in this gorgeous nail polish gift.

Happy Halloween Fab Free!! Here are the details.

The best cure

The best cure

The best cure for the Weekday Blues, in my opinion, is free gifts. Hello, dear readers and welcome to another edition of Edi’s Costume Ideas where I bring to you some hopefully helpful free or under 75L finds for your upcoming Halloween festivities. This episode, so to speak, is rather special as not only is it coming to you during the weekend, but also features an item from one of our Fabulous Designers! This sleek Nurse Betty outfit is brought to you by Brandy’s Boutique and you can get your copy for free just by joining the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group. How do I do that, you ask? Well, it’s easy! All you have to do is copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about , hit enter and click on the link. Ta-da! Welcome to the group, now you’re ready to get your gift.

The Nurse Betty outfit consists of a chic, minimalistic body suit that comes in several different clothing layers for the classic avatar. I just love to mix and match as you know and really appreciate the additional layers (jacket, shirt, and tank layer for the top half of the outfit and pants and underwear layer for the bottom half) in case I want to wear anything additional on top of the outfit. There are several different appliers for mesh bodies included in the package as well such as the Belleza, Lena, Maitreya, Omega and Slink appliers. As an added bonus, the cute hat and stethoscope are included in the gift as well.

While there is a pair of red ballet straps contained in the Nurse Betty outfit that was a perfect fit for my Slink high feet, I’ve decided to show you another alternative. The beautiful coral pair of shoes pictured comes from Renegade Footwear and you can get them for free just by slapping the Midnight Mania board at the store. The board as a pretty low target number (25) and there is no group join needed to get in on the contest. In the package is not only shoes for Slink feet but for Belleza, Eve, Maitreya and TMP feet as well. The prize also contains a footbase and hud so that you can fiddle around with the color and look of your new shoes.

Cute accessories are another a weakness of mine and they don’t come any cuter than the aptly named Love Drug from Glutz. I had to resize the thigh straps a little so that it didn’t bite into the skin but lucky for me the Love Drug accessory is unrigged mesh and copayable so I was able to make some backups in case of mistakes. The gift comes with an extensive hud and you can spend hours experimenting and figuring out the perfect color combination. Best of all the Love Drug accessory is completely free. Just head on down to the Glutz main store to get the clue for the Quest Fur Cover Hunt that is running until the 31st of this month. Once you find the prize, buy for 0L.

The best cure headshot

Speaking of hunts did you know that there’s a really interesting one going on at 7 Deadly s{K}ins? I’m always looking for new hunt experiences and enjoy mulling over the clues so the Witch Hunt going on now at 7 Deadly s{K}ins was truly a fun experience. You’ll need to buy a hud for 1L at the front courtyard of the store and from there hunt for bones. Don’t worry the hud will help you keep track of which bones you’ve found and there’s a grand prize to be had as well. The skin I’m wearing in the picture above is one of the hunt prizes and is called Zara and comes in the tone taupe with cleavage and no cleavage options for classic skin. There are also appliers for Slink, Tango, Wowmeh and Phatazz included. I simply love the light dusting of freckles all over the skin’s face and body. The little details are always so spiffy aren’t they? The hunt at 7 Deadly s{K}ins lasts till the end of the month and there are prizes for guys as well so grab a friend and head on down.

I’m Going Out Tonight

“You can stay in if you like, Lazypup… I’m going out!”

Hey there Fabulouses!  Poulet Koenkamp of Purplemoon Creations is spoiling her inworld group members again with another instore group hunt!  The Keep Calm & Give Me Candy Hunt 3 began on October 18th and runs until the end of the month.  There are 10 hidden mermaids in and round the sunken ship as well as Phillip to search for.  I was running short on time when I went down there to hunt and didn’t find them all yet, but I found a few, and totally plan to go back and find the rest!  If you aren’t a current member of the group, it’s just 50L to join and these hunt prizes are well worth that!

One of the prizes I picked up is the super sexy Alana Dress in a royal purple denim with gold stitching.  This dress comes in Maitreya, Belleza and Slink mesh body sizes as well as regular mesh sizing and fitmesh with the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that are on the system body.  Such a great prize, and I really must get back there soon for the other prizes, but first I wanted to tell you about these cute shoes before I do!

You can find these adorable  strapped 2016 Halloween edition shoes at Empire for just 1L.  These come with a texture change HUD that allows you to change plenty of little pieces on the shoes with a few different colours in time with the season, for example gold, orange, purple and green.  Even if bright colours aren’t your thing, you can make these all black – so they’ll be fantastic even after the bit day of bumps and jumps is over.  These are compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and TMP mesh feet.
