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.

I lost my g75 notebook to the great big fantastic sl heaven in the sky a few days back and am now back to my older g74……….excuse me whilst I bang my head on it for the next few minutes lol. Not all is lost, as it can be fixed Asus tells me and under warranty it still is, but when something like this happens it’s so hard not to get fed up for a few days, but then realize I miss blogging so I hop back on the horse and hope for the best 🙂I Can See Clearly Now (4)

Ola! Back again with more pretty things for you to feast upon……and then go grab from three of my absolutely favorite events hehe.  The current rounds of FaMESHed, Collabor88 and My Attic at the Deck has just about everything you need for this fabulous look, sans the SLink Mesh Avatar Advancement Hands and Feet……..but you have those already right?! If not what are you waiting for? Head on over to SLink and grab the goodness waiting for you! Oh and Truth has new Hair……the Rowen style has a special grace to her that I love, and I even went out of my comfort zone and grabbed the Blondes this time……they have more fun anyway yes?!

The beautiful Belleza Skin, which I cannot or do not want to take off is from Collabor88, along with the gorgeous Pearl Wisp Necklace from Yummy and the lovely Bangles from Maxi Gossamer, who has quite a selection.  Schadenfreude has the amazing Lumi Jewels out where you can change the colors of metals, stones and glow factor……..I love these! Oh and do not forget the wonderful Miranda Heels from fri.day…….you need the newest High Avatar Advancement Mesh Feet from SLink to go with…….but together they are such a match made in heaven!

I also grabbed a few more colors of Ikons’ Promise Eyes out at FaMESHed……I can never resist these fabulous eyes and so many FairyTales Can Come True, They Can Happen To You (5)colors to choose from! These also include a mesh version and a even a sizer for you to see which size you should be wearing love Love LOVE these! I also grabbed the Royal Khadijah Estate Ring Maxi….I am so addicted to MG jewels it’s not even funny.

Now onto My Attic at the Deck! Where do I start! I love everything this round has to offer. The Fairy Tale Books are so pretty and they include five wonderful poses……of course you can use your own as well. I am wearing new nails from Flair with the unbeatable deal of 95L with both sets included for your SLink (av) hands and feet. Lacuna has two wonderful offerings this round, the very pretty mesh Sweater Dress in a multitude of colors to choose. Lacuna also has these amazing Semi Opaque Hipster Tights, these come with both SLink Foot Appliers and Phat Ass Appliers. They also come in so many beautiful colors! I Love these to death as I am usually faced with the dilemma of not having a full footed tight that I can wear with my SLink Avatar Advanced Feet and Shoes that are made for them.

Beautiful items from all three event, C88 ends near the 7th of February, but FaMESHed and My Attic at the Deck end as of the 31st of January……so if by chance you haven’t been to these wonderful events get a move on quickly!

It's Like Magic (1)

Ola! The Last Day of the 2013 Hair Fair has arrived. Although we bid adieu to this fabulous event, today is Bandana Day, So ‘we remove our hair to show we care’ for Wigs for Kids. A bandana or scarf made from other sl designers and residents have been readily available on each Hair Fair sim to grab all your favorites from. If you have not done so yet…….get them now! I know I have a huge folder of these amazing mesh bandanas but here are a few of my favorites.

Happy Bandana Day (1)

Happy Bandana Day (2)

Being the very last day of Hair Fair I hope every one has been and bought up all the wonderful new styles this amazing event showcases each year. I am in love with all my hair and keep working my way through my wonderfully large Hair Fair file hehe. I am once again so thankful to be apart of the 2013 Hair Fair…….Here is to another wonderful Hair Fair………….with many more to come of course 😉

I am wearing a fabulous new Diva Skin from [PXL] Creations. Diva is out for the Love Donna Flora event, each sold separately she comes in four different glossy lip versions, she is definitely a fabulous Diva and not to be missed. Also do not forget to also check out the amazing Pose that [PXL] is also selling for this wonderful event. I picked up this amazing Sadie Gown from Bliss Couture there as well…….I just love the feel of a magnificent full flex gown….the way it swishes around when walking or dancing is just wonderful. Make sure to pick up fabulous new poses from Click Poses and Props and oOo Studio, these are to die for.

Grab all the goodies from the Hair Fair, I will silently pine away for the following year. I hope everyone has had fun shopping and supporting such an amazing cause. Now show off those crazy beautiful bandanas and shop shop shop on the last day.
