    Hair Fair 2024 – Wasabi Flair

    Hair Fair 2024 - Wasabi Flair

    Mixing things up, wearing things in different ways, it is what makes Second Life the most fun…and Hair Fair 2024 – CLOSES 16th June at Midnight, so you have all weekend to shop – brings that out in me the most. I also had a little Hare jealousy going on from the other days piglet photobombing, so I just had to do a pic with one of this years Hair Fair Hares (Hearts & Crafts) isn’t he adorable, thank you again to Anya Ohmai for donating the Hares to the event for use each year to raise funds for Wigs for Kids.
    Wasabi, has always made sure to make their items in ways that people may choose to use them differently when possible, and the Sun hair is no exception, it comes with an adorable tied bandana/scarf look around the top, and is just delightful for Summer. Wasabi did give the option to turn that off though, which means that you can wear other Hair Accessories with it, or go completely without, you do you.

    I did me! This is the first year that Flair – the brand I co-create for with my incredible partner Mel Vanbeeck – are actually not only overseers of the event itself, but are participating. We made two exclusives and this is one of them, the Lilyfield Ruffle headband. When you spend as much time in conversation as I do with Gogo and Sparkle, you end up with a lot of ruffles and a lot of pink in your minds eye. So this headband was born, and I just love to add things to hair as you know, so the mixing of the two things, the fun Summery look by Wasabi and the headband just worked so well for me. I hope you like them both very much too.

    You have a few days left of Hair Fair 2024, so remember every item sold at the event donates a percentage to Wigs for Kids.

    Hair Fair 2024 – Yomi

    Hair Fair 2024 - Yomi

    Just when you think it is safe on your platform/studio, along comes a Fancy Piggy, courtesy of my awesome friend Sparkle Skye, who sent me her this morning. Once rezzed and realising, she is way more Sassy than I am – she gets the extra S. I just had to try and be as cool as her with my Yomi hair, which is so gorgeous in its Scene hair way. We had a lot of scene styles back in the day, and this one is definitely reminiscent of that vibe. There is a separate purchase style HUD, and I think I got all the hairs available Exclusive and past releases in the Yomi booth at Hair Fair, because I was loving everything. The colour huds are abundant also, so you have a lot of options, in this style I went with the dark roots versions, and then of course spent another few minutes deciding which colour…but really like to keep on theme colour wise. There were event tintable versions of the Alaska Metro Laminate lashes to give a bit of a red look to. Winning!

    Hair Fair 2024 – Exile She Said Destroy

    Hair Fair 2024 - Exile She Said Destroy HYBRID

    I am certainly living my best Hybrid Hair SLife this year with Hair Fair styles. I took this fabulous exclusive style by Exile called Kory, and added the Bettie bangs and strands from She Said Destroy, also available at Hair Fair 2024. I love all these bits and pieces that you can turn into completely different looks, it gives you that edge – much like BOM – to your wardrobe. If you can add a little something that makes you stand out from the crowd, then go for it.

    I also love the behind shoulders option in the styling HUD that Exile gives for this style, you get the forward left or right, but also behind shoulders, which makes it much easier to get dressed.

    Hair Fair 2024 – Sintiklia #187#

    Hair Fair 2024 - Sintiklia #187

    I am feeling mighty again, this time though, with that kind of classic movies twist, where I host a fancy club/restaurant by day and then am ready to stab someone with my hair-stick, or drop some poison from the lotus into someone’s cocktail – I have a very good imagination when it comes to my Hair Fair combinations it seems.

    Sintiklia made this braided bun/updo style, and it is giving all the looks, with the 5 options of wear with the HUD. Also a nifty materials selection as well. I like that it can be tailored to your vibe of that day, because updo’s especially are a real thinker, you either need them in the moment – which is why it was very normal to see girls in ballgowns shopping in hair stores in the older days – or you fall in love with them and then have to work them into your wardrobe, this one is an easy fit, because it has that very grand elegance to it, but can definitely go casual.

    I had no particular hair in mind though when I bought this divine hairstick from #187# though, the fact that they came together so well is just…Bloggers Fate :P. But aside from my silly, it is just glorious, and so many options in the HUD for colour combinations. It feels otherworldly and just something one has to have, to round out their inventory.

    Hair Fair 2024 – ADE Mewsery

    Hair Fair 2024 - ADE Mewsery

    As mentioned earlier in the week, usually my go to for hair is black, but the ADE Fatpack HUD had me doubting all my choices, not in a bad way, in a I need more heads way. I wanted to wear them all, so many incredible blends and colours to choose from. I really loved this brown grow out look, so I kept coming back to that and finally shot my picture. I was totally caught off guard by this hair, because the ad bore a striking resemblance to Sabrina Carpenter, and I was just about to say that to Adedarma while he was setting up his Hair Fair booth, when I realised that the name of the hair ‘Nonsense’ was one of her songs, that I had only just heard in the hour before that. I got hooked on Sabrina from her stint in ‘Girl meets World’ I thought she was amazing in that role, and while she is a great entertainer music wise, I still hope she does a whole lot more acting in future, I did also like “Work it” because I am a sucker for a dance movie.

    I felt that I needed to change out the look a little though, so adding one of the Exclusive items by Mewsery this amazing headband, really gave it some fun and flavour. I am kind of giving off a dance video look – in my head this is a thing, so lets just let me live out my fantasy shall we. The headband is so cute, and has a lot of options with the HUD for customising it to your taste. I love the items Mewsery bought to her first Hair Fair, I am going to keep her forever now.

    Hair Fair 2024 – Lamb Nuve The Annex

    Hair Fair 2024 - Lamb Annex Nuve

    No catchy title this time, but I am having a moment of absolute beauty right now. The combination of items came together without any planning, and when that happens, as I always say, it is ‘Bloggers Fate’. The Daisy hair from Lamb was an adorable thing to watch come about as the Exclusive. Lamb set up her booth fairly early at Hair Fair, then kept coming back and tweaking, and adding, and moving, and adding, and it all turned into a lovely showcase of her New and previous work in a little vignette. The booths at Hair Fair this year have been just fantastic, and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have been.

    This Daisy style has these beautiful monarch butterflies – I only know that because of the show Under the Dome – as separate attachments, in both animated and static options. You can add as many or as few as you like, and they really add to the look. But if butterflies are not your thing, you can wear the style without them, and there is a lot of style in this hair, the waves are so soft and luxurious. The Style HUD options are only available in particular packs, so make sure you read everything and try the demos first to be sure of your purchase, as you should do with all Second Life purchases…demo! demo! demo!

    Now my brows are another great get for Hair Fair this year, in the form of Nuve…my inventory is getting full of Nuve of late, because I am all about her BOM underwear layers, I wear bom underwear with everything, even if using an alpha layer, because they stay no matter what the rezzing is like. So my favorite wearables is many packs of Nuve undies. I have also been binging her skins and brows options…so to have some of the Newest release brows for Hair Fair had me very happy. Many Nuve brows are unisex, which means they are often a heavier brow depending on the style, and I love that, even wearing her Male specific brows for the past few weeks, much to Gogo’s horror, which just makes me like them even more.

    Atop of my luxurious locks is this incredible crown by The Annex. This is a previous release item at Hair Fair and it is so many things, all happening separately and at the same time together, that makes sense to me, if you do not understand me, send me a notecard and I will explain with even more words…as I do. No really do not do that, I just mean that you can look at this crown and think you have seen all it is in one look, but then discover something else, then another thing, for instance when I purchased it, I was so wrapped up in the crosses and flowers, that I completely missed the butterflies, that is what I meant by this look not being planned, because I did not realise even when adding it, that the crown had butterflies at all. Truly beautiful…and while I was feeling all soft and majestic at the same time, I added a lovely bodysuit from AlaskaMetro also bakes on mesh, to keep it all pretty.

    SL16B – Gifts – Linden Homes – Exhibits

    SL16B_Logo_Final

     

    If I timed this right this post should hit the stands just as Second Lifes Sweet 16th is open to the public. It opens at 10am SLT on the 20th of June 2019 and it is going to be an exciting event. The Hop & Shop as mentioned yesterday has gifts in every booth, and there are a hundred stores as part of this wonderful event. All booths also have discounted items, starting at 20% and going up as high as 75%.

    The clothing and accessories worn in today’s post are all GIFTS at the event. Even my Slink Hourglass Bundle is discounted during the festivities as are the Physique Original Body Bundle and the Physique Male Bundle, the shoes I have on are the Slink gift for women at the event.

    I have included pictures of all the booths, and you can see how amazing this event will be and how much time you will truly need to cover it all.

    Second Life 16th Birthday Hop & Shop Event.gif

    Also part of the SL16B celebrations is the reveal of the new Linden Homes theme. The theme is very different than the builds so far, and for those wanting to not just live somewhere but actually cohabitate these will be so much fun. I am already looking forward to immersing myself in these themes many opportunities for community development and role-playing scenarios. I can also see a full region of pink in the future because nothing will be more fun than getting all the neighbours on board with that idea.

    Second Life 16th Birthday - Linden Homes Theme Reveal.gif

    I ran into Patch Linden while he was going over the showcase area, and he was very pleased with the plans for these and other homes in the future. He also has a Meet & Greet planned for this coming Monday – Calendar of Events – so that he can answer questions about all things Linden Homes related. As this is just a rough layout keep in mind that the Moles are hard at work creating the final layouts of these new areas, and I cannot wait to see them finished. I actually saw the new Taylor Swift video a few hours after running into Patch and laughed hysterically at how just on point the Lindens are.

    The Sweet 16 inspired theme of the overall event is throughout the many regions dedicated to it, and if you explore the exhibits done by many Second Life Residents it is fun to see their own take on this Retro vibe. Old Movie Theatres, Beach Party scenes and some very big statues, with bubbles and puppies and even a huge hydrant and cuffs dedicated to first responders. Take the time to visit all aspects of this great time of the year.

    Second Life 16th Birthday Welcome area & Exhibits.gif

    One of my favourite sections was the time capsule like build, with all the years’ history of Second Life gathered together. I won’t say I was not disappointed to not see ‘and along came Sasy Scarborough’ in the 2006 section but I did squeal with delight at Hair Fair being mentioned as that was also its very first year.

    Another exciting thing that Patch told me was that the four new avatar looks at the Welcome area on the Pizazz region are for limited SL16B time only, so make sure you grab them as a memento of the visit.

    Then when you zoom over to the Hop & Shop you can start collecting all the gifts and shop like a crazy person like I did, and look as fabulous as I feel right now.
