First of all a heads up that on the 7th the Hair Fair Photo Contest will begin. You can find all the information on that, and the rules HERE. I cannot wait to see all your exciting entries…there is a huge prize pool, and the theme is fun fun fun.
I love hair, hair was my first passion in Second Life, I spent every cent I earned on hair, buying sometimes half a dozen styles a day, and back then hair was slim pickings stores wise, so you had to get your fix whenever you could. None of these releases every week or two, back then it could be months between, and you would totally jones for a fix… yes I agree, I have watched way too many cop shows lately. But it was honestly brutal, I would go nuts roaming around Second Life trying to find new hair to wear, back then swapping outfits and hair was a four times a day minimum habit, and I didn’t even blog yet.
Now it is heavenly, there is a consistent wave of beautiful hair (pun pun punnnnn) and todays hairstyle is one of the latest from the fantastic Exile Hair. I love me some Exile, not only do I love the styles, but I also adore the man behind the styles. Kavar Cleanslate is a treasure to know, he is fun, witty and a great shopping partner, whether it be for mens or ladies fashions, or just running around yard sales to find hidden treasures that don’t go Oink but blink at you and melt your heart – YAY Anya Ohmai. The pigs are of course the amazing piglets in cups that Anya Ohmai has created for The Arcade, and you definitely need to go and grab those, they are just adorable. You can see them all HERE.
I went off track there, I was talking about hair lol. The hairstyle I am wearing is a fantastic pigtails style and available at this months FaMESHed, and due to the incredible new HUDS with streaks that you get with every purchase from Exile now – in the new styles – I can make my blonde a lot more interesting with the brown streaks look. I also love that the tails are tied off with hair, not ties, as it just gives more ooomph to the look.
I am wearing some older Collabor88 with the half tucked tshirt that is a go to very often for me, and the cut off shorts also from Tres blah that I think I go to even more. I would love them in more colours actually, but then even though I say that, I think they are just charming enough as a one off.
Another two The Arcade items I am wearing in this post are the incredible Doc Marten inspired boots by Fashionably Dead, these I was lucky enough to get in this great blue and a metalic pink (not worn) right off the bat, I also got the rare spikes that you add extra to the heels, which give them a little more life, but can be worn without also.The boots have small or large options, you just have to choose which one you need when purchasing, girls small boys large. At 75L a play, I think I will have to go back and get more of them, as I don’t care what colours I get, they are all fantastic.
Lulu is the skin I am wearing, and it is the Glam Affair item for The Arcade this round. Some stunning make ups, with some great rares in the form of really unusual looks. The freckled versions are adorable, and the eyeshadows, especially the green are just fantastic, really eyepopping work.
I have no idea what sim I was on when I cammed in from next door, but it was one of the ‘DO NOT FLY” sims, so to get around that …Ctrl Alt V and that gives you God Powers – an old SL term that I did not make up.
When looking for the boots, they are on the outside of the main circle in the middle, I think on the right side, but as I was camming in, it could totally be the left. Have a great week everyone.
