Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

I am wearing the Bandana I made (ok textured) for The 2013 Hair Fair. I love the idea of the vintage fabrics and I actually have a few scarves in these colors in real life. I am not a creator…….lol I must have watched Sasy Scarboroughs’ You Tube video over 50 times (and not just because she has a to-die-for accent either hehe)…….but something finally worked and here it is. There will be so many beautiful bandanas to choose, I usually pick up a handful each year……these are a fantastic replacement of hair when off to high volume events.

I really love the idea of selling one’s own creation for a wonderful cause like ‘Wigs for Kids‘  Just a few months back I was diagnosed with cancer myself, and I met some really wonderful people in certain groups and at the institute. Even though I was one of the lucky ones not to lose my locks during this treatment, I had a sickness the year before that caused me to lose my hair for months. I felt terrible about it, but I looked at it in a SL perspective and went shopping! I bought beautiful hats and learned how to tie long scarves around my head……..as to not see or show what was happening underneath.

I also found out I could make myself useful by teaching others what I had learned. The tears that came to my friends eyes as I whisked them up in a beautiful scarf was probably the most emotional moments for me throughout the last few months. I also delved into researching the cost of wigs and was flabbergasted. Having no control over this disease……….or any other one that takes over your life is bad enough. Losing your hair is something that is so much apart of ones self worth, and is just as traumatic. Then thinking about buying a hair replacement at the same time is not usually something most can handle financially during these times.

Now…..going through what I and millions of others do every day, think of a child, your children, and mine, having to understand what is happening to them….surgeries……treatments…….hospitals……doctors…..medications……..all for the goal of one day hopefully being healthy. I have to say it literally breaks my heart at the thought.

I have participated in the Second Life Hair Fair for many years, this year and last by blogging…..but always by buying up almost every beautiful style I can get……..this year is different for me though, now I will never forget how heartbreaking this can be for anyone……..but even more so for our children.

So let’s all buy some hair and do not forget to grab those Bandana’s that are being sold solely for ‘Wig’s for Kids’…….because on July 28th, the last day of The Hair Fair we all remove our hair to show we care, Bandana’s are a great way to show that you do….It is the best we can do in Second Life to make our children hopefully feel more comfortable about themselves during one of the worst times.

See you soonish

  2. Oh Evion. You’ve done a FANTASTIC job of your bandana. How it matches with your outfit…perfecto.

    I’m so sorry to hear of you illness and am sending positive affirmations into the atmosphere with your name on.

    Yay you. xx

    • hehe thank you so much Chalice……..these are in world textures but I just adore the combo……..omg I am so technically building/texturing challenged it’s just too funny!

      Also thank you for the positive affirmations…….I will take everything I can get these days for sure. I have lived by my grandmothers rule of thumb for a while now ‘When things go wrong…..don’t go with them’ I am pretty sure that’s an Elvis quote lol, but it’s kept me going, oh and I am taking time to enjoy life these days……I think sometimes we lose that somewhere and it takes something like this to bring us back 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by <333 and I am sending you big hugs 🙂
