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!

My 2015 Hair Fair Entry is¬†with the beautiful Analog Dog Hair Olivia, which combines a wonderful mesh/flex style that those who lust after the perfect curly long locks are sure to love! I cannot believe how time flies, it’s the 10th Anniversary of the Second Life Hair Fair! 10 years of wonderful designers whipping up some luscious locks all to help ‘Wig for Kids’ is amazing all on its own. The SL grid is sure to celebrate this year with all your favorites on sale for an amazing cause. So save all your lindens as we only have 18 more days before the most fabulous Fair in sl begins!

Ok first order of business is the 2015 Annual Hair Fair Photo Contest which started on the 7th of June and runs through to Sunday June 28th, so you still have time to get some beautiful entries of your favorite styles of hair.

There are a few rules;

* No Nudity or sexually explicit images, this includes no female nipple exposure (includes sheer clothing). I mean every one loves a beautiful photo of an exceptional avatar, but this is a charity event that benefits children of Wigs for Kids, so we need to keep it reined in, and as well the photos will be posted at the Hair Fair 2015. The committees have final say in all images being approved or declined.

* Hair must be the main focus of your photo entry.

* Contest runs from June 7th – June 28th.

1. All pictures taken must feature hair created by one of the stores providing prizes for the contest only. The stores will be listed below and on our website. You MUST name the hair and the hair store in the description section underneath your picture. You Must include your SL Avatar user name (no display names) so that we can contact you if needed ( name part added 9th June pictures approved before that are ok)

2. All pictures must be new for this contest. Older photos are not to be used. If photos are found to be older, or used in another manner other than this contest, they will be removed.

3. All pictures must be competition entries only, not blog or advertising images then used to enter as well. If you show the picture on your blog, you must include that you are using the picture for your entry, and information of the contest.

4. All pictures must be your own work, or you must have permission to use them in this manner. Any pictures reported as not the work of the submitter will be removed and disqualified.

5. Only submitters of the pictures are eligible to win the prize. If more than one person in the picture, only the owner of the picture can win. Prizes cannot be shared among multiple avatars.

6. You can submit up to 5 pictures for this contest………..so hurry up and show us your favourite locks!

Also¬†by agreeing to these rules you give the Hair Fair 2015 committee the permission to use your photos in world, as well as on the website in a ‚Äėwinners‚Äô capacity if they are chosen as such.

Ok onto 2015 Hair Fair Bandana Day

bandana-day-kit-2015

 

Remove Your Hair to Show You Care!

The Bandana Kit to make your own to be sold at the 2015 Hair Fair is available to all! The Bandana Kit created by Mel Vanbeeck is just to be used for¬†Bandana Day Bandanas, and available by im’ing the amazing¬†ladies Sasy Scarborough &¬†Whimsy Winx.

Bandana Day, started in 2007, It’s a day we encourage people from all over SL to remove their hair and wear bandanas decorated by designers (not just hair creators!) grid wide.

The idea is to decorate the bandanas provided with either a texture (textures must not have images or logos of RL products or copyright material)¬†prims, or both (NO HAIR) and return it full perms to CharitySasy String ‚Äď Perms will be changed to No Copy and sold Mod/Transfer as we do every year, so people can buy for others.

We also encourage you to create a notecard that explains why you have decorated the bandana, as many people have their own stories as to why they support this cause. You do not have to do this, it is just something we will include in your bandanas box to share with the person that buys them.

All money from the sale of these bandanas will go to Wigs for Kids and will only be sold by the Hair Fair Committee at Hair Fair 2015. After the event the bandanas will be destroyed, so after Hair Fair there is no reason for you to keep these other than for personal wear, but we hope also that you will buy some for that.

You all have your own fans/customers so putting your own logo on the ad is recommended, that way customers will know at a glance whose bandanas they want to buy if they are limited to purchasing only a few.
you can add your logo to the bottom right hand corner of the template we provided in the kit.

Thank you, in advance, if you choose to participate.

The kit comes with one mesh bandana and two baked textures that can be used over your textures by using an editing software such as Photoshop or Gimp. You do not have to use the bakes, but they do add some shading and realism to the look.

Once you open the bake maps in your editing software,  use multiply which is in the drop down option at the top of your layers menus, and it will show your own texture underneath. The bake may look very dark, but those blackest sections will not be visible once layed on the bandana.

____________
INSTRUCTIONS

1. Rez the bandanas and add your own textures or prims. Remember these also work as a lag reducing option for many, so please try and keep the items you add to it to a minimum. Be as creative as you want, but it is a must that anything you use on the bandana be legitimately yours to use ‚Äď they must be full perms items you purchased, have permission to use, or have created yourself.

Please do not add scripts or things to your items that make them not able to be sold in no copy/mod ways. If you are in doubt contact Sasy Scarborough

Make sure to name your bandana, including your name or store name, so that people know who created it.

2. Take pictures of front and back and add it to the Vendor Ad template provided with your store logo on it. We would very much like the ads to stay the same, and you must not remove the Wigs for Kids or the Hair Fair info.

IMPORTANT :::The ad picture must be for ONE bandana only. If you are making a few then one ad is needed for each one. These pictures are for the actual boxes the bandanas will be sold from.

Even if both mens and womens are done with the same texture they must have separate pictures so people know which one to buy , this is very important! as they will be sold separately

3. Put bandanas, ad picture and your notecard in a folder and name it ‚ÄúBandana Day (YOUR NAME/STORE)‚ÄĚ and send back to CharitySasy String.

All items except your personal notecard MUST be FULL PERMS. Your notecard, if you do one, can be NO MOD. Limit of 4 per person please.

All finished bandanas must be in by June 30, 2015

Again thank you so much for helping us make Bandana Day and Hair Fair 2015 a success!

Check out this great tutorial on for using the Hair Fair Bandana Kit.

For any further info please send Sasy Scarborough Hair Fair Committee a notecard.

Hair Fair 2015 Bandana DayThese are my entries ūüôā

Clarity is honestly how one feels when stricken with a sickness that your mind has a hard time accepting what is happening to you, especially when you hear the words Cancer. In my own experience you hear little to no other words after that one scary word. You begin to look at life a little differently than before that moment and things have a startling way of adding a most potent clarity that is unknown until that point in life.

Hope is something we all need in times like this, it is as important as breathing is to each of us, I cannot imagine a moment without hope. I am now 2 years free of breast cancer and could not imagine a day gone by without hoping to see my son grow and flourish with me by his side for most of the way.

I love supporting a wonderful charity like ‘Wigs for Kids‘ as we help young children deal with the many aspects of supporting their inner beauty by making them feel the outer beauty to their young existence. Helping them feel a normalcy that comes with the outward appearance, it can make or break a woman these days, and to think of how children deal with this everyday is very¬†heart wrenching to say the least.

So if you love the idea that your personal Bandana design could really help out an amazing cause, grab a kit and check out the tutorial and have some fun, don’t forget the Bandanas have to be turned into CharitySasy String with Full Perms by June 30, 2015.

Hair Fair 2014 Mina & Damselfly Previews and More……….

Mina Hair ~ Hair Fair 2014

Ola! A few 2014 Hair Fair previews. Mina has been uber busy making these fantastic new styles. Iris and Sophia are long and luscious, she didn’t forget about the guys though, Timo is amazing all on its own and comes with its own hairbase. I love them all but Iris is one of my picks for favorite style this year hehe. These are all shown with materials and in Lt Brown tones, but there is an option for no materials as well.

Damselfly Hair ~ Hair Fair 2014

Damselfly has a few equally beautiful styles. Praise is long and exquisite, Tabby is a¬†sweet fly-away style and of course the fabulous short Eilana is breathtaking as well! Damselfly also has some amazing Men’s styles out, so watch for those guys!

Hair Fair 2014 is the most amazing event ever………yes because I am obsessed with all the gorgeous second life hair styles lol, but also because all proceeds donated go¬†directly to ‘Wigs for Kids‘ The Hair Fair Sims open on July 12th – 27th I will soon be posting the 2014 Hair Fair Map & Store Slurls. But you should definitely join the ‘2014 Hair Fair Free Demo Group’ this is where all Hair Fair Designers will drop all the beautiful demo’s for you to try on in the comfort of your own sl home on the 11th the day before Hair Fair opens.

Last year there was a fake group that was made up and charged money to join promising demos, call their bluff again this season, as the 2014 Hair Fair Group will always be free to join……..do not ever pay to join¬†this group! On the last day of the Hair Fair ‘we remove our hair to show we care’ On every Hair Fair Sim there will be a booth to buy Bandana’s made by us! Designers, Bloggers, Builders and Shoppers have made a Bandana or two for the sole purpose of donating 100% proceeds for Wigs for Kids. I usually pick up quite a few as they are super to wear to the Hair Fair or any other high volume event, and of course to be worn on the last day of Hair Fair. Above are my pretty Bandana’s that I have made. Most of you read my story last year at this time, but if you haven’t and would like to click here for that post to see why Hair Fair is most important to me.

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.

Remove Your Hair to Show You Care

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 ūüėČ

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.

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