Milk Motion @ Collabor88

Have I mentioned that I really like lace? Well, this dress by Milk Motion has filled my daily lace requirement. It’s available in a variety of colors at Collabor88 this month. It was all I could do to not spend my rent money buying every single one.

I also really like this hair from Truth. I have been seeing it all over the place, but I haven’t had anything that I felt it would go with. It was the first hair that popped into my mind when I put on this dress. I was so excited to finally go grab it!

Happy Birthday, Truth Hawks!

While there are many, many talented hair creators in Second Life, few are as prolific or well known as Truth Hawks of Truth Hair. It’s hard to go anywhere in SL without seeing one of his fabulous styles adorning the head of a pixel prince or princess.

Today happens to be Mr. Hawks’ birthday and the lovely and also very talented Kaelyn Alecto has been working hard on a project to honor Truth’s work and hopefully make him feel loved on his special day. I had the privilege of participating and having my portrait taken wearing one of Truth’s beautiful styles, called Lykie.

Altogether, Kaelyn compiled over 130 portraits. If you’d like to browse through them, you can check out her Flickr photostream.

Truth Hair has been part of my Second Life experience for years. I remember the first time I tp’d to his store, thinking “Woah, I barely even know where to start!” I have spent hours in his store demoing hair after hair, and I am sure I’ve spent more L than I’d like to be aware of.

Truth is not only talented, but he’s a really nice guy. He stopped by The Grounds (home of the Pixel Bean) one day and of course I fangirled and came over to gawk. He was more than nice and didn’t even seem to be bothered by my giggling and stuttering. He even goofed with a few of us and of course we all took photos to commemorate the occasion.

Truth, thank you. Thank you for your creativity, your creations, and being cool even though you’re uber SLamous. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Summer Harvest Hunt Finds!

The Summer Harvest Hunt (<- click for details) starts today! Yesterday, I showed you the great item from BENT, and today I want to show you a few more items!The top of this dress is system layer clothing, but the skirt is mesh. I think that’s a great thing for people who aren’t fully sold on mesh or have bodies that won’t fit mesh the way it’s being made right now. I really like this necklace, too. It’s very delicate and sweet. This pavilion is even a hunt gift! There are two versions- one with these cute hanging lanterns and one without. Stay tuned for more previews, or visit The Ego Co. Blog to see what other bloggers are saying!

These Boots

So, these Monso boots came out a while ago. I’m totally late to the party, but I really do like them a lot. Not only are they realllly nicely made, they also have this nifty hud that allows you to change the texture of different parts of the boots! The different textures are really adorable, too.

 

Go demo them and play with the hud and see how empty your SL has been without them!

Hair Fair!

Ok, you guys, let the countdown begin. HAIR FAIR IS ALMOST HERE!!

Needless to say, I am beside myself with excitement. If there’s one thing I buy more of than anything else in Second Life, it’s HAIR. I have more hair than I know what to do with. I actually considered taking photos of myself wearing every hair I own and making some sort of collage for this post. I considered it, then remembered that I am not a masochist.

I love how different hairs in SL convey different things. There are wild hairs, sleek hairs, fancy updos, playful pigtails, beautiful braids, funny looks, retro locks, short hair, long hair… and new wonderful styles come out all of the time. And ever since the rise in mesh hair… I am pretty much constantly broke. What would SL be without the amazing hair creators? Remember system hair? Do not want.

On top of being a great place to spend all your $L on new hairs, Hair Fair is also a charitable event. 15% of all profits from all sales at Hair Fair will be donated to Wigs for Kids. So, not only will you look fabulous after shopping at Hair Fair, you  will also feel fabulous, knowing you’ve helped a child feel and look more like themselves.

So, instead of making a collage for all my hairs, I made a smaller collage with a few hairs I really love. I could have done multiple per creator, but I stuck to just one per. I didn’t want to make a GIANT photo, so I just chose 9 from the designers whose hairs I buy most often, or whose hairs I feel look best on my av. It really is amazing how changing only your hair can change your whole look!

OOh! I almost forgot! Take this link, group secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about and post it in local chat and JOIN THIS GROUP. It is the demo group for Hair Fair. The designers will actually be sending out hair demos so you can try them on ahead of time. How awesome is that!?

Alright, start saving your $L or whoring yourself out or buttering up your sugar daddy/mama, and I’ll see you at Hair Fair!
