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!

fri.day mesh!

You know what store I really like? fri.day. In the days before mesh, I shopped at fri.day ALL OF THE TIME. They have everything you’d ever need for a basic, classy, cute wardrobe- sweaters, tshirts, camis, jeans, shoes, cute little dresses and rompers, accessories… they even have hairs and poses! One of the things I always LOVED about fri.day was that every item, whether system clothes or prims- every single item of clothing- has a demo. I wish every store in SL would take the time to do this. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought something and put it on and never worn it because there is something funky about it you couldn’t see in the ad photo. In cases like that, I usually don’t go back to that store ever for fear of wasting more $L on stuff that won’t work out. fri.day has retained my loyal patronage because of their quality items and their DEMOS. I have tried on lots of their stuff, bought some, not bought others… but I know I can always trust that what I do buy will fit just right and look great because I could try it on first!

Ok, so anyways, ever since mesh arrived on the scene I have been waiting and wondering when fri.day will jump aboard the mesh train. I still wear a lot of system and primmy clothes, but mesh has definitely taken over my wardrobe in a big way. For a little while, I was afraid fri.day might not get into mesh and just fade away. Thankfully, this is not the case. fri.day has recently come out with a few mesh items and I cannot wait to see more! You can check out the fri.day blog for more news and information. I am so excited that an old favorite is keeping up with the changes in SL and bound to become a new favorite all over again!

French Toast

Soooooo, Vive 9 was a little late setting up at Collabor88 so I didn’t see this dress first time I was there. I actually saw someone else wearing it and HAD to know where it was from. Of course, I ran straight over to grab it! Same thing with this hair- someone else was wearing it and I was like OMG WHERE IS THAT HAIR FROM!? It’s from Wasabi Pills, and it has color-change clips and hair ties. I love it very much. Vive 9 also has an adorable hair available at Collabor88, but you’ll have to go check it out for yourself!

Lighthouse

There is a lighthouse five hundred yards down
You and I will be safe there

The city is burning
The ocean is turning
Our only chance is the lighthouse

We went in, we climbed up and looked out…
