– No mesh body parts required. This one’s for system avatars!
– Absolutely free!

Hi peeps!

I’m feeling the 70s glam today with this fab red sparkly jumpsuit from Spyralle, which can be found at The Free Dove this month as part of the February Hunt there.

You need to join the Free Dove group and have your group tag active while you click on the hunt items. More info about the Spyralle gifts and the other two stores participating in the February hunt can be found by clicking the hunt kiosk on your left when you land at The Free Dove. For this Spyralle hunt you’re looking for teeny little green gift boxes with purple bows.

And, since we’re going full 70s here, we need some big floofy hair, which I found in the shape of this big fatpack of mesh hair by Sentinus, also at Free Dove on the wall dedicated to free hair. It comes with a 20-colour-change HUD containing lots of naturals and some pretty pastels:

Lastly, the makeup is from a big freebie pack from Alaska Metropolitan, here on Marketplace.

The skin is from the default Kimberley avatar and the eyes are from the default Iliana avatar, both of which can be found in your inventory’s Library section, under Clothing > Initial Outfits. The shoes are also from the Iliana avatar :)

– Mesh body parts required for some items, but not all
– Minimal spend look (initial purchase of fishing rod required for most items)

Hi peeps!

Well ooh la la! It’s time to fish up a new outfit at [email protected], and this time it features some super-cute dresses, super-tousled bedroom hair, and super-hot sheer lingerie, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Yowza!

The I Want It, Real Love outfit set is the new ‘Fish for this’ set at the [email protected] mainstore. I blogged some info on how to get your fishing rod set up, here, so once you have that head to [email protected], plunk your butt on a chair, and get fishin’!

The set comprises: Omega applier and system layer lingerie in four colours (white, pink, lilac, and red); mesh skirts in the same colours (fits for Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, TMP, Tonic Curvy & Fine, Ebody, plus Standard Sizing); Omega applier and system layer garter stockings; two dresses (one light: pink and white, and one dark: red and black) in fits for Slink Physique & Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, plus Standard Sizing; three hairstyles in platinum, auburn, and black; Omega applier and system tattoo layer lipstick (hot pink and red); and a pink heart choker. Phew, that’s a lot of stuff!

Mar’s 10L$ heels by AC Shoes can be found here on Marketplace.

Mar’s wearing the auburn hair here, and the red lipstick from the set, plus an awesome glittery freebie eyeshadow tester from Alaskametro on Marketplace. (Links to Catwa, Lelutka, and system tattoo layer options are here.)

This is the darker of the two dresses:

And here’s the ad image from [email protected], showing most of the items:

– Works for both mesh bodies and classic avatars
– No-spend look (absolutely free!)

Hi peeps!

Another post from me today, to give a quick heads-up of some great little makeup, eye, and jewellery freebies at Musa! This link will take you upstairs at the store and, if you look on the wall by the stairs, you’ll see some lovely eyeshadows. Under the main images the word ‘tester’ is in mesh letters. Click that, and you get a wearable freebie single-colour sample of that eyeshadow!

The ones with ‘demo’ underneath them have ‘demo’ written somewhere on the face, but the ‘tester’ ones are fully wearable. As a bonus, they include not only Omega appliers (which will work on any mesh head, with the correct Omega relay) but also tattoo layer makeup for classic avatars!

Then, if you turn to the left, you’ll find more testers, this time for two pairs of eyes. As before, click the word ‘tester’ and – as before – you’ll get applier and system eye versions in a single colour :)

Finally, cam downstairs to find the Subscribe-o-matic kiosk. If you join up (it’s free and doesn’t take up a group slot) you’ll get a gorgeous eyeshadow palette in 8 colours (Omega appliers and tattoo layers) plus some earrings with a massive 16-colour customisable HUD plus 5 metal options!

Hi peeps!

Let’s get this out of the way first: you have no idea how much of a struggle it was not to turn that headline into a joke about having a fishy [email protected] No idea at all ;)

ANYway!

In yesterday’s post about the lucky boards at [email protected] I mentioned that the ‘Fish for This’ outfit was probably going to be changed out at the weekend, which was why I wasn’t going to blog about it. But it turns out there’s another week to go! So here’s a blog post about some of the items you can win if you have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod and park your butt at [email protected] to cast for the New Year Grab Bag of goodies.

There are 20 items to fish for, and they include clothing, hair, footwear, and decor items, including some very generous colour and texture-change HUDs. But, before we get into what you can catch, you’re possibly wondering how the heck you fish for this stuff! Hop behind the cut for info and then for pics of some of the items :)

– Mesh body parts required (except for the Baby Monkey boots, which also work for classic avatars)
– Minimal spend look (most of it’s free!)

Hi peeps!

The lucky boards at [email protected] have been refilled with new goodies, so I sent Mar over there to plunk her butt on a chair and play the “I can click faster than you can!” game, while at the same time doing some last-minute fishing for the [email protected] “Fish for This” goody bag of 20 random items. (I won’t blog any of that, because I think it changes over today, so I’ll probably send her back again to fish for the new outfit tonight).

I’m just going to show some of the fabby new lucky board items in this post. Most of them come with multiple-colour HUDs, and the mesh items come rigged for several bodies as well as Standard Sizing.

First up, this lovely snuggly Wilora argyle dress, which comes with an 8-colour HUD for changing textures. Mar has teamed it with these fantastic Anais Tall Boots by Baby Monkey, which are just 10L$ on Marketplace, for a super-generous 32-colour HUD (including brights, jewel tones, neutrals, and soft pastel shades). These are especially fab because they can be worth either with Slink High feet or on a classic avatar!

Next, for a super-sexy Dita Von Teese look, the Ava Bustier & Pencil Skirt. The skirt is black-only, but you get a generous 8-colour Omega HUD for the top (and, for classic avatars, clothing layers, too!) Mar has teamed it withe the JLO Heels by Legendaire, which are 59L$ in the ‘Recommended’ section of the Legendaire in-world store (head toward the Outlet area to find it). They come with two HUD options: 10 plain colours (with the ability to mix and match between the upper, insole, and heel) and 4 pattern options for the shoe upper. They fit Slink High, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

This gorgeous Taban Brocade Poncho is also in the [email protected] lucky board, with a 10-colour HUD that’s filled with lovely colour options.

Bring your Daisy Duke attitude with this great little Omega applier set. The Connor Tied Flannel Top comes with a 12-colour HUD, as well as a bonus pair of jean shorts! And for classic avatars these also come in clothing layers :)

Next up, this drop-dead-sexy dress with a tentacle twist and a 12-colour HUD!

And, lastly but not leastly (totally a phrase that I didn’t just make up) this cute-as-a-button Crushed Silk Pouf Dress with… erm NOT a 5-colour HUD as stated in the image below but a TEN-colour HUD (oops!)

Mar’s hair throughout this look is Truth’s December 2017 VIP gift: Tinsley. If you can scrape up the 350L$ to join this group it’s sooooo worth it. Every month you get a massive fatpack of exclusive Truth hair with multiple styling options!

– Mesh body parts required; these appliers will only work on mesh heads!
– Minimal spend look; absolutely free!

Hi peeps! Well, today Mar got a slightly-belated Christmas present: the Catya Bento mesh head by Catwa. I’ve had my eye on it for ages, and finally splurged on it, as well as a discount skin applier by Deetalez. I’m absolutely thrilled to bits with how she looks now! This is her new bare-face look:

So, of course, now I’m on the hunt for cheap and free Catwa appliers, and wow did I find a little treasure trove tucked away in the prettiest store I think I’ve ever seen in SL. If you’re after gorgeous makeup appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Genesis mesh heads (as well as a plethora of nail appliers for Maitreya hands) look no further than the delightful Shiny Stuffs!

Can you get a full mesh body avatar look for just L$1? Yep!

– Mesh body parts required, well… because this IS about a mesh body!
– Minimal spend look, just L$1!

Hi peeps!

Mesh bodies and heads have hit the grid in a big way over the past couple of years, but the one thing most of them have in common is that they’re flippin’ expensive! Not good when you’re trying to live an SL4Nowt-y kind of life, but I have a solution for you, and it’s the free mesh body by The Mesh Project.

The body is feature-limited (as you would expect from a free version of something that normally costs several thousands of L$!) but it comes with a lovely selection of skins, plus a free dress and three heights of feet. I’ve even found a pair of dollarbie heels on the Marketplace, which match the colours in the dress and work with the free version’s Style Mode HUD!

Here, Mar is wearing a combination of the Linden Lab default avatars ‘Shawna’ and ‘Maria’ (which we all have in our inventories). The colour match with the TMP skin tone is 99% perfect, which was a fabby surprise that I really wasn’t expecting!

(Note: The dark line down the inside of her arm in the following pic is a shadow, not a flaw in the body or its skin.)

Mar has teamed it with some gorgeous freebie jewellery by RealEvil:

And some great dollarbie heels for TMP Mid feet by Horacia Hoof of H.H. Designs:

Lastly, the hair in the first piccy (and the one below) is  from Rezology at The Free Dove, and – again – is absolutely free!

Hop behind the cut, because shopping for the TMP freebie and then styling it using their Style Mode HUD is a little bit complicated, so I’ve create a tutorial to help you out :)

Hi, peeps!

I’ve been wandering around The Free Dove rather a lot lately, because they have some amazing stuff available. And, with Valentine’s Day looming into view, I’ve picked up some gorgeous freebie frocks for that in-world date you might be going on.

There won’t be much text in this post, because I’m just going to show you what I found. The store and item names are on the images themselves. I hope you find something here to put a sparkle in your Valentine’s eye! ;)

For the first one, I do have a bit of text. This dress comes with two generous texture HUDs, plus an additional colour-change collar, a (black-only) floufy shoulder section, and an optional black clutch. I’ve taken pics of them all, but only one pic of the collar, clutch, and flouf! (Note: the clutch will alter the pose of your right arm, so it won’t follow your AO’s motion, and the clutch will always be held by your side.)

And now, onto the others!

And for the skin and accessories, you’ll find the Skin by Kira at the Free Dove, and the jewellery set by RealEvil here on Marketplace.

The hair by Rezology is also at The Free Dove.

 

Luscious curves & Valentine pretties!

– No mesh body or body parts required. This one works for classic avatars!
– Also includes an all-in-one applier for: Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega
– Minimal spend look. Just L$1!

Hi, peeps!

Today I’ve got a luscious curvy shape for you, as well as cute-as-a-button pink hair, a lovely skin, and a slinky silky dress.

Isn’t that a super-sexy, curvaceous shape?! I’m completely in love with it, and it’s absolutely free! But before we get into that, I’m taking you to the Free Dove to pick up that slinky pink dress by Tiffany Designs, which is perfect for a hot Valentine date! (That link will give you a red arrow to follow, taking you directly to the dress’s location at the back of the store.)

The dress comes with tons of options, including clothing layers for classic avatars, an all-in-one applier for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and Omega, a mesh skirt piece (in several sizes), prim extras for those lovely floaty lace sections around the legs, and the pearl jewellery (necklace, bracelet, and stud earrings). Absolutely, bargainously free!

Next up, head to Marketplace to spend a measly L$1 on these shoes by Mayden Couture. They come with a pretty easy-to-use skin colour HUD, with presets to start you off and you can then fine-tune the shade to match your skin. An added bonus (especially for newbie girls who don’t have the money to spend on Slink feet) is that they come with sculpted feet. I know that Slink feet are gorgeous – heck, I own them! – but when you’re new to SL and don’t have the L$675 to spend on a pair of feet, you still want some nice heels. I noticed that, even at the Free Dove, most of the female shoes are now for Slink High feet, which is surprising. I would have thought to see a few more options for non-Slink wearers, especially since the Free Dove is all about helping newbies! I know that few people are really making shoes with included feet these days, but still… :(

And, finally, we’re heading to JStyle. This is the place you’ll need to join the group for.

NOTE: All of the JStyle groups send out a lot of notices (they tend to be multiple repeats of the same notice for several days, until a new notice comes out), so I strongly suggest that – if you stay in the group(s) – you disable group notices for each of them, and just check them manually once a week for new items.

The group is the JStyle Mesh Head group. (Don’t get as excited as I did, thinking you get a free mesh head!) You’ll need the group tag active, and once you’ve done that, click the box for the Mesh Head group gift on the desk just inside the store. Inside this box you’ll find that stunning curvy shape, the skin (complete with makeup – please note this is a system skin only. There are no appliers), the hair, a brow shaper, and an alpha layer to help you with the hair. Mar did need a hairbase under it, so she used the pink shade of Amacci’s free hairbase tattoo layers.

Another little note: This hair isn’t rigged 100% perfectly. I noticed that, when Mar moved her head, the hair sunk into her face a little on the right side. The hairbase tattoo made up for it, and since it’s absolutely free, it’s not anything to kick up a fuss about. I just like to warn my readers in advance, so make sure you get those hairbase tattoos to wear under the hair :)

If you’re up for joining another (free) group, you can pick up another lovely mesh hair in the store – just a little to the right. There are currently female and male mesh hairstyles absolutely free to members of the main JStyle group (again, very active, so disable group notices unless you want to be swamped!) Make sure you click the large images with the group tag active, not the smaller boxes underneath them.

Here’s a shot of the store and various locations:

On the left you can see the desk with the hair and skin etc gift in it. There’s a second gift of a pink mesh dress (that requires yet another free-to-join group!) so if you want to grab that, do! And on the right you can see the two group gift mesh hairs. Make sure you click the big pictures! I’ll show a close-up of the female hair at the end of this post.

Mar’s eyes and mesh lashes are both from default starter avatars, which you’ll find in your inventory’s library. The eyes are from the ‘Iliana’ avatar and the lashes from the ‘Leah’ avatar. You can edit the lashes to fit your eyes quite easily.

And here’s a better look at that stunning shape. As I note in the image, it’s NOT modifiable, but it states that it’s for Medium Standard Sizing, so any mesh clothing that’s in the M size should fit it. And honestly, that face is super-cute and so worth it!

Lastly, here’s a close-up of that other ladies mesh hair group gift from JStyle:
