Hair Fair Photo Contest Prizes Poster

Hi there! Everyone who reads my blog knows I am the biggest hair fan ever, and this is truly the most wonderful time of the year for me 😉 as the 2013 Hair Fair approaches I am all excited, being a hair lover by trade, I cannot wait to see all the wonderful new styles………knowing as well that the most important aspect is that all proceeds are given to Wigs for Kids. Now given that I have recently had a run in with something serious, I found myself researching the actual cost of a wig(s)………. and this is truly an amazing way to help out.

Have you entered the 2013 Hair Fair Photo Contest? You still have time, the contest runs until midnight June 28th, 2013 and look at all the wonderful prizes you can win!!!! The theme is ‘Movies that Inspire Me’ Make sure to show off those lovely locks and win a chance at Free Hair…..a VR Studio System by VR Foundry, which I can tell you is simply the best Photo Studio, as I have owned mine for over 3 years now and would not live without it, blogger or not everyone needs one! Oh last but not least you get VIP Early Access to the 2013 Hair Fair……..Sweet!

Remember you can wear any hair style you own, these styles do not need to be from the 2013 Hair Participants, this is a celebration for the love of all hair……….just make sure your photos have been taken since the start of the contest June 7th of 2013, and have not been entered in any other contest. You can also enter up to 8 times! Make sure not to have any text on the photo, small names are allowed in bottom corners only, and your photo is larger than 512 x 512, when the winners are picked your amazing photos will be uploaded into Second Life and posted at the 2013 Hair Fair and need to be without pixelation.

The Queen of Babylon

The Queen of Babylon (1)

The Queen of Babylon (2)

Hai there! I am bringing you my version of the Queen of Babylon today. I put on this fabulous Mesh/Flexi Maria Gown from Dew, then scavenged my suitcase for the most beautiful Semiramis Style from EMO-tions. This style is an amazing creation…… with the thinly laid braids and of course woven with a gorgeous gold beads, also available with silver beads as well. I knew I had just grabbed this exotic style only a few days ago……but my inventory needs a rework lolz.

I am also wearing the beautiful Ava, one of Belleza’s Best Buy Skins that were out this last weekend. I cannot seem to get enough of Ava, any version I will grab in a heartbeat. I also added and simply adore the Upper Arm Snake Bracelet from Baiastice, which is available at FaMESHed.

I am planning on entering the top photo in the 2013 Hair Fair Flickr Competition on which the theme is ‘Movies Inspire Me’ I am choosing ‘The Queen of Babylon’ for my photo theme.  I am huge black and white movie fan, I also do not mind subtitles which drives my hubs completely nutz hehe, and I know my outfit is not exact, but that is the fun of dressing up and depicting who you want to be in Second Life I think.

I also squee a little when talking about Hair Fair…..My favorite event in Second Life. I have such a fascination with Hair styles of all kinds, maybe due to the fact that they are so interchangeable here in our beloved sl, A hair style also contributes to many an outfit in a huge way….and of course this event helps out Wigs for Kids……an amazing charity…..so I make sure to grab all my favorite styles. Hope to see your 2013 Hair Fair Photos in the Flickr Group as well. Clickity here for the rules and to join the amazing 2013 Hair Fair Flickr Group, where you can not only win amazing prizes but you also get in on the sneak peak before the Hair Fair opens!

2013 Hair Fair Photo Contest

Hair Fair 2013 - Photo Contest

The 2013 Hair Fair Photo Contest has begun and I am definitely excited! The theme this year is “Movies Inspire Me”

Hair Fair is my favorite event in Second Life, benefiting Wigs for Kids, while we style it up with brand new locks from our favorite Hair Designers.

Here are the rules copied from the original notecard, as I would not want to leave anything out.

1. This years theme is “Movies Inspire Me” be as creative as you like, feel free to include other people in your shots.
However, as in previous years, ONLY THE PERSON ENTERING THE PHOTOGRAPH IS ELIGIBLE TO WIN. This years contest will run from the 7th June – 28th June 2013

Examples : Sci-fi, Black & White, Romantic Comedy, Anime, Horror, Country & Western, Thriller, Action, Drama

*No Nudity or sexualy suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children, naked/revealing pictures and pictures that the committee deem inappropriate will not be accepted, the committee’s say on this is final.

Be creative, but remember we are looking for pictures that focus on the hair and you. PHOTOS SUBMITTED TO THIS POOL MUST HAVE BEEN UPLOADED SINCE THE START OF THE CONTEST, PHOTOS OLDER THAN THE START WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, we want fresh focus and definite passion for this event, and this event only.

2. Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing program of choice. We don’t want to see vendor images here or store logos in the background for example. Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love.Also be aware that we wont be judging your photos on how little or much you know of PS or GIMP, rather the feel of the picture and the capture itself.That being said, please do not “over process”, we want to be able see the hair! – if you must put your name on your images please be sure to make it small and discreet in the bottom left or right of the photo…anything business focussed will not be accepted, names of avatar only.

3. Keep your photos in Second Life size format. Second Life will distort your images when uploaded into SL, and we do not want to have your images look all out of focus in the winners circle if picked.

Sizes options

512 x 512

1024 x 1024

2048 x 2048

512 x 1024

1024 x 2048

4. Photos may only be entered once, and only the person entering the photo is eligible to win. The same photo may not be entered by more than one person. You must have full ownership rights to the photo you are entering. If it was taken by someone else, then you must be allowed to use it in this manner. Check with the photographer before entering because any disputes of ownership of a photo will result in disqualification.

5. Entrants are limited to a total of 8 entries. Enter only your very best photos, as swapping out will not be allowed. We will be keeping track of who enters what, and swapping out your photos after submission will result in your disqualification. We want to make it fair to everyone.

6. In the description of each photo you enter, please include:
* Your Second Life avatar name ( no display names, if your last name is Resident please include that )
* Model/s
* Photographer
