Happy Bandana Day – 2016

Happy Bandana Day

Hair Fair 2016 ends tonight, so you have one last day of shopping to help us help Wigs for Kids. You also have the chance to rock around SL in your bandanas, the way we as a community show we care on this day each year.

Many residents have created these marvelous items so that you can purchase them for 50L and all proceeds go to Wigs for Kids. The bandanas and the donation kiosks all donate the full 100% to wigs for kids during this time. The bandanas are not available anywhere else, and will be removed from the grid at the end of the event so do not miss out.

This bandana creation is by LeLutka, and it is a stunning hat with scarf ensemble, that makes you feel very fancy indeed. I also added another neck scarf to the mix, so it all looks wrapped around and very stylish. There are three colour options of this bandana style. I purchased nearly all, I tend to get very excited by them each year, and find that they become lovely momentos of the event.

There is a bandana booth on each of the hair fair sims, and each booth has the same ones, so you do not have to visit them all to get the lot. In years past people have had bandana day parties, events at clubs and just fun gatherings to commemorate the day. I hope you and yours all have a great Bandana day, and thank you all so much for helping us each year do what we can for kids in need. It really makes for such a community effort and something that I am very honored to be a part of with Mel and Whimsy and all of the fantastic creators who give of their time and their talent each year.

Hair Fair 2016 – Elikatira

Hair Fair 2016 - Elikatira

Hair Fair and Elikapeka Tiramisu are hand in hand in my mind. It was because of Six Kennedy, and Elika welcoming me to the group that I was able to join in and be part of Hair Fair in 2007, and this many years later. It was the kindness of Elika allowing Fiachra and I to use her own bandana as a template style for making the first ever Hair Fair Bandanas, that made bandana day possible. It was her openness to new ideas, after that first year I was part of,  that made it possible to expand and grow as an event, and even though she was not able to continue on the committee over the years, she is always someone so important to us.

These three styles are so fun, so her, and I love how in each hud for each style, she has a little cameo like picture of the style itself, so there is no mistaking which hud is for which style, that extra effort, that makes it all work so well. Pink and Pink, Pink and Blonde, and Pink and Red, all of it works, but honestly I just love red heads wearing pink, it is a thing that many think is not supposed to be ‘acceptable’ but it so is, and can be a breathtaking look depending on the combination.

I am wearing a lovely halter top by Mimikri with the matching frill skirt that is just summery and delightful, as are all Mimikri items, she has a way of just knowing what you need, especially us girly girls.

Hair Fair 2016 – Mina

Hair Fair 2016 - Mina 3

Hair Fair 2016 closes on Sunday evening, so you only have a few days left to get your hair on, and help Wigs for Kids. Mina was also a tenant at The Deck for many years. She was great to catch up with in the sand every few weeks, and watching her take on bigger challenges with creating hair full time, as she had a mix of things she created in the beginning. We love having her at Hair Fair and I look forward to seeing more and more awesome from her.

These styles for Hair Fair are out of the ballpark fabulous! The shine on the textures, the styles that just let you show off your clothing – behind the shoulders styles are always great to have in your arsenal. The bangs, the overall sexiness of them all, really makes them go back and get hairs, if you did not already get them.

The romper I am wearing is actually black, the fun editing software managed to make it look navy…but nope Valentina. E did it to me again with the only four colours in this romper, and if there were more, I would definitely want more, WHERE IS THE RED – cries. It is so cute, it tricked me, at first I thought it was a cami and french knickers, but it is an all in one romper that just looks like you are jumping around SL in your undies, and it is SL so that is just a thing we do.

Hair Fair 2016 – Vanity Hair, Emo-tions & Analog Dog

Hair Fair 2016 - Vanity Hair Hair Fair 2016 - Emo-tions

Hair Fair 2016 - Analog Dog

This Hair Fair post is a Trio post. Because the three stores involved are not only great stores that have been part of Hair Fair for many years, but are also three of the co-owners of Hair-O-logy that is a monthly Hair Event in Second Life, that is about to hit its first birthday in a few months.

Vanity Hair, Analog Dog and Emo-tions Hair owners Tabata Jewell, Queue Marlow and Mirja Mills are all such wonderful ladies, who I have been honored to know for a long time now. Mirja was a tenant at The Deck for many years and there was never a more amazing tenant EVER! so organised, always on time, and just a joy to have around. Tabata I have also known for many years, but it was indirectly through Flickr that I met her, she was one of my first Pile Ups, if you do not know what that is, it is when someone takes pics and lets you edit them. I was so inexperienced at Pile Ups and editing anything but my own things, that I made her yellow, and she praised me for it…because that is just how lovely she is. Queue I first met as a Mermaid, her not me…I thought she was amazing, that her whole SL was spent as a mermaid that created beautiful hair, and it would explain why it swished and swayed so beautifully. I remember when Analog Dog was launched and we all came running, with the long ponytails that just bounced like we had never really seen do before. Always so fun to talk to, and who has definitely created some memorable styles over the years.

Now the three of them, as I said run an amazing event, and are so caring that they have it set in stone that during Hair Fair the event does not take place, and the month prior they do a Discounted price month, so that the Hair creators involved in Hair-O-logy have the time to focus on their Hair Fair releases…they are awesome!

We at Hair Fair love that they have combined forces to make such a great event, and spreading the hair love in SL is always important, it was and will always be my first love and addiction in Second Life. Anyone younger than 6 does not know the pain that was hair releases back in the olden days. We used to wait two or three months for releases, from only a dozen stores on the whole grid, I would seriously jones for new hair, climbing down sewers (this is true old gravy was once down a sewer) to find new hair to wear, we were deprived, it was painful, and no one ever released Hair before Hair Fair, so those 3 months prior were just spent making hair and it was safely guarded until release…and we all would wait, crying in pain for lack of prims and flexi.

I am seriously starting to feel the pain of those olden days, dives head first into my recent items tab ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh all better.

Stunning updo’s, and a hat hair, seriously these girls know how to party.
