It’s the most wonderful time of the year……………………..Yay for the 2013 Hair Fair! It is bloggers preview day today and the Hair Fair has been opened up to usf ro a few hours now, and I have to say what an amazing build! If you like Lego……you are going to love the Hair Fair…….it is bright and colorful and of course the best part is the amazing hair to be had!!! I feel like a kid in a Lego Store.

I am bringing you a preview this am from Bliensen + MaiTai. These fabulous brand new styles made me just oh so happy……….I can never have enough vintage locks and these are a must for everyone’s vintage collection. I ran and grabbed this fabulous Letour Gown from Molichino and threw on some beloved Donna Flora Jewels and then pranced around in the magnificent goodness of these fantastic styles.

Remember to join the Demo Hair Group if you haven’t already….that way you can try on all the styles before the Hair Fair opens……..so you know what you are looking for in advance. This event is much loved by many and will be packed for the first few days……….so you need to be ready for that in advance! Also remember the proceeds from the Hair Fair benefit Wigs for Kids, so lets help them out! As soon as the event opens to the public I will post a nice little map with individual slurls to each designers’ block………really soon!!! Do not forget to stop by a Bandana Block as well…….there are so many pretty Bandanas to choose from this year!

I want to thank Sasy Scarborough and Whimsy Winx for pretty much everything, from including me in the blogger group to the amazing build………..as well as all the hard work that they put forth for this unbelievable event which seems to get better each year! Ok I have another preview coming up very soon……..keep trying on those demo’s because the fantastic hair to be had at this event is worth every second of the short wait!

Hi there! Just a little reminder to join the 2013 Hair Fair Demo Group. The Demo Group will be used by the Hair Fair Designers to send out all the wonderful new styles to try on a day before the 2013 Hair Fair starts on July 13th. This way you can try on every beautiful style and make decisions before the Hair Fair opens………..I always make a list of each style I am going to buy, so when I get to this amazing event I can quickly locate the styles I want and grab them without having to go home or elsewhere, or even worse to stand there and try to rez to try them on. This way it is a quick and easy way to get in and out fast so others can do the same 🙂

Summer Breeze

I am wearing the Bandana I made (ok textured) for The 2013 Hair Fair. I love the idea of the vintage fabrics and I actually have a few scarves in these colors in real life. I am not a creator…….lol I must have watched Sasy Scarboroughs’ You Tube video over 50 times (and not just because she has a to-die-for accent either hehe)…….but something finally worked and here it is. There will be so many beautiful bandanas to choose, I usually pick up a handful each year……these are a fantastic replacement of hair when off to high volume events.

I really love the idea of selling one’s own creation for a wonderful cause like ‘Wigs for Kids‘  Just a few months back I was diagnosed with cancer myself, and I met some really wonderful people in certain groups and at the institute. Even though I was one of the lucky ones not to lose my locks during this treatment, I had a sickness the year before that caused me to lose my hair for months. I felt terrible about it, but I looked at it in a SL perspective and went shopping! I bought beautiful hats and learned how to tie long scarves around my head……..as to not see or show what was happening underneath.

I also found out I could make myself useful by teaching others what I had learned. The tears that came to my friends eyes as I whisked them up in a beautiful scarf was probably the most emotional moments for me throughout the last few months. I also delved into researching the cost of wigs and was flabbergasted. Having no control over this disease……….or any other one that takes over your life is bad enough. Losing your hair is something that is so much apart of ones self worth, and is just as traumatic. Then thinking about buying a hair replacement at the same time is not usually something most can handle financially during these times.

Now…..going through what I and millions of others do every day, think of a child, your children, and mine, having to understand what is happening to them….surgeries……treatments…….hospitals……doctors…..medications……..all for the goal of one day hopefully being healthy. I have to say it literally breaks my heart at the thought.

I have participated in the Second Life Hair Fair for many years, this year and last by blogging…..but always by buying up almost every beautiful style I can get……..this year is different for me though, now I will never forget how heartbreaking this can be for anyone……..but even more so for our children.

So let’s all buy some hair and do not forget to grab those Bandana’s that are being sold solely for ‘Wig’s for Kids’…….because on July 28th, the last day of The Hair Fair we all remove our hair to show we care, Bandana’s are a great way to show that you do….It is the best we can do in Second Life to make our children hopefully feel more comfortable about themselves during one of the worst times.

See you soonish
