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.

The Tide Is High But I'm Holding On (2)

Hai! It’s truly funny how some days I can get so much done, than others days I am working at a snails pace to get out one single post, ah well such is the way of life, even the second one follows that same path. Tonight I am of course showing off this fabulous new mesh Short Denim Salopette from Baiastice available at the newest round of FaMESHed. This cute little outfit comes with a hud to change the texture of the bikini top, and you can even take it off if you want to wear a different top with, love Love LOVE these!

I was wandering around my small beach today and thought I would use the newest plug-in Flood from Flaming Pear. I watched the very informative You Tube Tutorial on how to install the demo plug-in by Ms Strawberry Singh, and since I was taking a water photo, I thought I would try it out. I think I will try to do a few new tutorials more often. I am usually under the gun time wise but setting some new goals to learn some new Photoshop skills wouldn’t be a bad idea. I will ease in slowly of course, there are just so many wonderful tuts out there to choose from……now to find the time to watch and learn from them all hehe

Ok I am out for the evening, have a good one and I will definitely……………………….. see you soonish 🙂

I am still running back to this fabulous Ashley Summerfest skin from Belleza…..she is a classic beauty.

I did grab this adorable Summer Starfish Necklace and Earring set which also comes with a red version (not shown) from MishMash which is a new store to me…..but omg these are to damn cute to pass up! Summerfest ’13 is such an amazing little sim that is not to be missed…….so stay on the tp button and grab all the goodness 🙂 I have the lm over in the sidebar……..just hit the announcement and enjoy!

I ran over to Limited Bazaar earlier and grabbed this fantastic Fer Attachment with Hud controlled Headband from Miss C.  I am also wearing new Mesh FlipFlops from Gos, ok I know they aren’t new but I just bought them today so they are to me and I love them of course lol. Oh and I have been wearing these fantastic mesh Pyramid Leather Cuffs with studs from Baiastice via The Arcade……which are just fantastic…….I just love cuffs as they can be put anywhere on your arm and look fabulous……..with of course pretty new Flair Nails from the Summer Edition Cosmetic Fair to top off this lovely outfit……………love Love LOVE this look and hope you do as well!

Ok I think I’m going to head into sl and go shopping lolz………..Hard to believe but I jump in and out of places so fast these days, I really do not spend enough time doing what I love……….getting off my platform!
