AD-Damselfly444Good Morning! I have been up for over 34 hours lol and I’m on my 8th pot of coffee, so I am wired for sound in an over-tired hair whirlwind. But I have been working hard on trying to accomplish my yearly Hair Fair post of some of the most luscious locks to be had on the grid. I love hair! Of course you cannot tell hmmmm? I love that I can use this post to look for specific styles all year-long and revel in hair goodness. At the 10th Annual Hair Fair all styles bought gives a percentage to ‘Wigs for Kids’. You can also buy many scrumptious Bandanas or give to the Donation kiosks throughout the sims. Every linden counts as amazing gratitude to ‘Wigs for Kids’ and the most talented designers on the grid, so hop to it and shop shop shop!

Time For the 2014 Hair Fair Photo Contest, Summer Nights

Hair Fair 2014 - Photo Contest - ENTER NOW

Summer Nights

Summer Nights

Yay! Hair Fair 2014 is on it’s way!!! I am so excited, 2 weeks of yummy brand new styles from the grids most amazing designers…….I get such a warm and mushy feeling when Hair Fair is near! I am wearing my favorite hair of all, this is Nanda from Mina and she is the softest side braid I own. Whenever I wear this style I turn into a romantic, and what’s not more romantic than a summer night? This is my first entry into the Official Hair Fair Photo Contest………..but I will let you read on 🙂

We are about to begin the Official Hair Fair Photo Contest for Hair Fair 2014. The contest starts on the 9th of June and ends on the 23rd of June. You can upload up to 8 entries. Each and every store listed below is awarding prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners (that is a huge prize pool!) so tell all your friends, start taking wonderful pictures and show us how you can best show off your hair.

Theme:

This years theme is *Music*. Be as creative as you like, feel free to include other people in your shots.

This years contest will run from the 9th – 23rd of June 2014

*No Nudity or sexually suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children. Naked/revealing photos 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.

New Photos Only

Photos submitted to this pool must be new photos. Photos older than the start of the contest will not qualify. Photos used for other contests, memes, blog posts or promotions will not be accepted — if they are accepted into the pool but we find out that they are/were used for something else they will be removed. If you want to blog your entry, that is allowed — as long as it is a blog post explaining that it is your entry into the  Hair Fair 2014 Photo Contest

Editing

Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing software of choice. As you do, please remove any vendors or store logos that may be in the image. 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. Don’t get too carried away, though; we want to be able see the hair!

Only backgrounds from Second Life, or created in photoshop or an editing program are allowed. No RL images to be used in or as your photos, such as morphing or locations.

 Text

Because of this years theme being “Music” you may use text on your images if you wish to. The text can only be lyrics to a song – in part or whole, and NO Sexually Explicit, Degrading, Racist or Hate Speech song lyrics allowed. This is a Charity Event for a Childrens’ Charity, so anything found to be unacceptable will not be approved.

While text is allowed, still remember that this is a photo contest, and we want to be able to see your Hair and Avatar clearly. Text should not overwhelm the image.

 Sizes

This year any size is acceptable. Please try and make sure that photos are larger than 512×512 or they will not look as good as you want them to, and may effect judging.

 Entering Photos

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 removal from the contest.

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.

Ola, a quick one today as I am running out the door again. I am wearing a fabulous Black Formal from la petite morte. This was available at the Black Fair which closed yesterday……..but I have been working on a few posts the past couple of days and decided to post this one anyway……..I just love the formal look of this quite sexy lace/mesh gown. I hope Voshie will release this instore as it is such an amazing gown.

I picked up the gorgeous feathered Neckpiece from Elysium at the first year anniversary of L’accessoires. I also paired this with a beautiful almost matching Hairpiece from Bliss Couture………which is closing soon and have amazing deals going on, so make sure to visit soon. I am loving the fabulous Amacci releases lately, Alma is a wonderful updo with lots of flexi bits to swish around while moving. Alma also comes with a Flower Piece that is hud color controlled, but I switched it out to complete this lovely look. Alma is an exclusive available at The 24 Event.

Di’s Opera has an amazing Femme Fatale Pose set out for Fashion Limited…….these are an absolute must have, but hurry as only 100 are available and then they are gone! I am still madly in love with Jade from [PXL] Creations, she is just such a flawless beauty that I can not give up 🙂

Have a wonderful day and I will certainly…………………………………………………………See you soonish 🙂

My 2013 Hair Fair Picks

Set 1 eep, Exile, Lamb, LeLutka

Set 2 LollipopZ, Miamai, Ploom, [AUX], [INK]

Set 3 Argrace, Clawtooth, Damselfly, Decoy

Hi there! I did a post like this for Hair Fair 2012 and I found it really helped me decide on which style to choose from. I remember staying up all night after cruising around the Hair Fair and cramming like I would have back in college lol. This year there was not time to do it earlier……but I have been working on this for a few days now. These are my picks for the 2013 Hair Fair, of course I can always add to this post as well…………just in case I do not have enough hair yes?! 😉

Some of these styles are tried and true designers that I love, some are new to me as well. I have eleven sets in all and ten styles per set……….that is a lot of hair I know, but I am just a tad obsessed……..maybe!? hehe Since the beginning of my sl I have had such a love for all the pretty hairstyles. This has quietly become my passion, ok maybe not so quietly when I post like this.

All in all………….the Hair Fair is my favorite event of the year and I wait eagerly for it’s arrival. I am so happy to have been included in this fabulous event for the last two seasons, and am thankful for being chosen to do so. Hair is such an important asset in how we look at ourselves, in real life as well as second life. But here we are very much fashion oriented and need different styles for different outfits, and Hair Fair is a one stop shop for all the amazing designers to show off their talent.

Now of course the most important aspect of the Hair Fair is that every sale gives a portion of the money collected to Wigs for Kids, I think this is such a wonderful charity. We help children through very hard times and sickness……….there is no better reason than this to shop like crazy. I may buy a lot of hair, but for this amazing charity anything goes.

I will have a cut in this post this year…….so if you are looking for more…………..check that cut. I am showing all these beautiful locks so you can see exactly how these styles will look inworld. I tend to sit up on my platform and commiserate with all my loot (inserts wicked little laugh here), so this is a way to show it all off at once what might take me a few weeks to blog. I hope you enjoy the post! Oh and all credits are located at the bottom.

Have a wonderful night or day and I will be back with more 2013 Hair Fair goodness…………………………………….See you soonish 🙂

Ok last post of the night. Amacci has an amazing selection of updo’s out for the 2013 Hair Fair. Also the really beautiful Lova……I love the sharp curves to this style and ever so soft. I paired them with Jade, [PXL] Creations soon to be released skin with Chocolate Lips. Jade is amazingly yummy! You can clickity click here for my full skin review. I have not had a chance to wear this fabulous ensemble from Purple Moon. The Milana Jacket and Skirt are very much like art, they flow perfectly and have the most wonderful textures. Once you have bought one…….you can buy the hud and have a fatpack of all colors.

I have had this Tefutefu Jewelry Set from Mandala burning a hole in my inventory for some time now and I thought it went perfectly with this ensemble. This set comes with a hud with many combinations as well as coming in many different color choices. Together with brand new Lauren d’Orsay heels from Gos I bring you my last look of the day.

Have a wonderful night or day and I will certainly……………………………………………………………………..See you soonish 🙂

The Undead

A movie about plastic surgery gone horribly wrong. 
In her pursuit of happiness through physical perfection, she never made it off the operating table. 
A death mask was made in her honor, and in turn was buried with her. 
Her soul was so plagued by the fear of losing her body, that she rose from her grave still lugging her dead corpse along with her. 
Her family so ashamed of her selfish disfigurement had made the mask in her likeness .. not of the face she was put to rest with. 
So she wears her death mask never to remove it, in hopes she will find a cure for her un-beating heart.
Brutus Martinek

Ola! I am back with a whole bunch of new wonderfully creepy items to show you today. First off how about this fabulous Undead Perfection set New from Pididdle available at the Cinema. I think she looks so divinely sad with her bleeding tears. This wonderful set has a few different pieces to it, the amazing Undead Perfection Mask and the Bodysuit complimented by the Plastic Surgery Marks and Nails……do not miss these they are entirely needed for the season or whenever you just want to be part of the undead, this is sl after all.

I am surrounded by floating pumpkins, now these floating pumpkins from Hanaya float in prim waters or you can buy the linden water version, or just go with the plain static pumpkin. They emit fog as well as dance in your water, I love these fabulous mesh pumpkins they are all over my tiny little land. Now onto the Spooky Pathfinding Ghosts. They float around and come with a fabulous Spooky Sound and their eyes turn different colors as well, they rez as leaves on the ground and you are just one touch away from having your very own spooky house and land!

I hope you enjoy the look and are having a really spooktacular day and I will………………………

See you soonish 🙂
