A Slow Glowing Dream

eXxEsS ~ Hair Fair 2015

Ola! I am back with some wonderful new hair by eXxEsS, these styles are all available at Hair Fair 2015 and they are literally rockin! I am sure you will love the fades and natural colors with rich hair textures as much as I do. Shea is such a fun style I had to have it on immediately hehe. I hope everyone is filling their suitcases with fabulous locks, in way of donating to ‘Wigs for Kids’………don’t forget to grab your bandanas before you leave as well!

Sissy just released some new Ruffle Bikini’s at  Wayward Carnival (opens July 15th 1pm slt). These are just yummy and I totally love the delicate lace that is included with the look 🙂 Ok I am off to take some more wonderful photos of the most beautiful hair on the grid right now. I will be adding all these photos to my main 2015 Hair Fair Post here and on Flickr if you missed out on the post that shows off all the hair I absolutely love. Have an amazing day and I will see you soonish 🙂

Now on to the logistics. The 10th Annual 2015 Hair Fair starts July 11 and runs through July 26, unless you were lucky enough to have been picked for early access than that starts at midnight (12am slt) tonight or around there. Make sure to join the 2015 Hair Fair Demo Group as all designers will be throwing their demos in, so you can try out all your locks in the privacy of your own home. You’ll know what you want to buy before entering the Hair Fair Regions without the hassle of demo’ing there. With so many trying to get in to buy up all the luscious locks it will be somewhat laggy due to everyone wanting in NOW! lol

Vanity Hair 2014 Hair FairVanity Hair, Shi 2014 Hair Fair[sYs] 2014 Hair Fair[sYs] LIO Hair 2014 Hair Fairs+elua+ & Blues 2014 Hair Fair

Good morning, I hope everyone is has had a chance to shop at the 2014 Hair Fair, I am back with some more beautiful locks for you to feast your eyes upon. I am really loving the new styles from Vanity Hair, we go from wildly beautiful (Alien, Flirt & Flirt 2) to a lovely long straight do (Infinity) to a wonderful crimped do So Selfish ( love the name of this style), all styles of course include materials and non-materials versions. sYs has some amazing styles out as well! I fell in love with each immediately, the  half inverted bob of Yiu, and the full bob of Lou are fabulous as this is how I wear my hair in rl. Hanayo I totally love Love LOVE, I can see this style being a knockout for a few different types of wear, the wonderful hud that comes with enables you to change the color of the fan and flowers of this style, and the simple but stunning Lio has pulled me into a full photo vision as I just love it this style with the newest Mesh Felicia Outfit from Baiastice, combined with new Severity Treaded Platform Wedges from L.Warwick.

Shi although not a new store to me, has this magnificent Poise style with color change Hair Pin, and I just adore the strands that cross over the face. I have never bought hair from Shi so this is my first, but not to be my last 🙂 Every hair fair I discover new stores, which is just one of the perks of having all these wonderful designs to shop from all in one place. Elua and Blues are new to me and are not to be missed.

No matter if you’re human, fairy, furry, vampire, bunny or any other kind of avatar, the one thing we all have in common is we all wear hair, it is part of our identity yes? (ok unless you are a bald man with a monocle 😉 But as most of us aren’t, this event is highly regarded in all communities in sl, which is fantastic all on its own how we all come together, but this also means this event will have a certain amount of sever/personal side lag, and of course will be harder to get into for the first few days. There is a fabulous article over on the Hair Fair Blog written by Morgana Hilra from So Hawt SL about what you can do to make your experience even better when visiting the Hair Fair and all events which are high volume.

My own tips to navigate are;
Turn your graphics down low but turn your LOD up
Strip down, wear layers only, no attachments!
Possibly wear a full body alpha
Pull out those bandana’s from previous years
Wear a hairbase only
Also take off all your scripted items, no one there cares you are not wearing your AO or are sporting  only your default avatars without your mesh body attachments. Everything can be put back on when you return home with your fabulous new hair yes?!

Last of all Morgana gives tips on how to derender everyone there, I do the same but I just use the combination of Shift+Ctrl+Alt+4, this derenders every avatar there as well as your own but not the build or vendors. I consider this to be the most fabulous event to date, but what I have learned in my years here is when you have 50 or so people per sim and thousands trying to get in, we will no doubt have lag to contend with.

We are there to shop and by doing so contributing to Wigs for Kids, a fabulous charity that helps children still grow into their own identity at a time in their lives when they need that kind of normalcy while they deal with the unimaginable from sickness.

I was so happy to see the additional landing points where you can cam shop or try your luck at bumping yourself into the sim as people leave hehe, yes I have gone this route more times than I can count, and all I can say is for hair and a fabulous charity………I will do anything and go anywhere!

Have a fabulous day and I will certainly see you soonish 🙂
