Hair Fair 2017 - Bandana Day

As anyone who knows me knows, I am a Hair Addict. I also LOVE Hair Fair and have not missed one since it's inception. I have also bugged Sasy Scarborough for years to let me blog Hair Fair. Well this year my dream came true and I am blogging Hair Fair. YAY!!!!
My very first task is to try to get as many of you as possible on board to make Bandanas for this extremely worthwhile cause. Need to hurry though as all submissions need to be in by June 14th 2017.


Bandana Day in Second Life, started in 2007, It’s a day we encourage people from all over SL to remove their hair and wear bandanas decorated by Residents (not just hair creators!) grid wide.

If you need a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough. Or you can purchase it for 0L at Winx & Flair in world where you will also find the Hair Fair Subscribo, so you can keep up to date with all news. Please only use this kit for what it is intended for.
The Bandana’s in this Kit have been created by Mel Vanbeeck ,and are not to be used for anything other than Bandana Day Bandanas.
The idea is to decorate the bandanas provided with either a texture (textures must not have images or logos of RL products or copyright material) prims/sculpts/mesh, or both (NO HAIR) and return it full perms to CharitySasy String – Perms will be changed to No Copy and sold Mod/Transfer as we do every year, so people can buy for others.
We also encourage you to create a notecard that explains why you have decorated the bandana, as many people have their own stories as to why they support this cause. You do not have to do this, it is just something we will include in your bandanas box to share with the person that buys them.
All money from the sale of these bandanas will go to Wigs for Kids and will only be sold by the Hair Fair Committee at Hair Fair 2017. After the event the bandanas will be unavailable, so after Hair Fair there is no reason for you to keep these other than for personal wear, but we hope also that you will buy some for that.

More information is available here: Decorate a Bandana

Contemplation

It's been a long while since I've posted, mostly because I was away from SL for quite some time due to my failing health. I won't bore anyone with the details other than to say I have early stages respiratory failure due to complications. So sitting contemplating the direction my life may go, it seemed like a good title for a blog post. There has been a bunch of changes due to my health as far as SL goes, the main one being I no longer blog for anyone. Nor will I take on any commitment other than short stints, or single events.

This outfit just fell together over about a week or so starting with the really nicely done "Surrender" dress by Neve, at The Liaison Collaborative, and available in a 4 pack of either plains, or prints. I love the open drapiness of it, the lacing on the sides and the interesting back. Really perfect for so many occasions.
The next item that caught my eye is this really great "Zoya" hair that is the March group gift from Truth Hair. It's a lovely updo that has several ways to wear it as each of the bangs are separately added, and comes as a Fatpack. It costs 350L to join, but with a new pack monthly it is well worth it!
Contemplation

Next on my list was the "Venus" bracelet set by RealEvil Industries available at Tres Chic. Each of the different bracelets can be hidden so you can change which ones you wear at any given time. There is also a colour change menu with 6 metals, 6 leathers, and 6 accents to also add variety to your look.
To complete it, I chose [sYs]'s "Shibari" heels that will be available at Shoetopia. I fell in love with these and could not choose a colour pack, so bought the Fatpack. And it was so worth it. The shoe, and the straps each have their own colour control making it easy to mix/match. I know they will get plenty of wear from me as they will mix with so many styles of outfit, both eastern and western.
Contemplation 2

Lastly I want to mention the prop I am posing in. It is by 8f8, and as with anything by iBi it is fantastic. Called "No Place of Ours" it has been previously released in other versions, but this new release is Spring/Summer. It has poses for two people, and a couples pose as well. With a LI of just 14, it is really easy to find a spot for this.

Dress - neve - Surrender (neutral) - available @ The Liaison Collaborative until March 30th

The Forest

Well after much unnecessary drama I finally got my computer back and working again. That it has taken over 3 months to get it 100% working, while it was still under warranty is beyond ridiculous. But we won't go there...
What I came to tell you about is a fabulous new monthly event called The Forest. It costs 1000L to join the group each month. But you are promised between 17-26 Designers every month. And if it is anything like July, that is an incredible bargain if you would wear/use most of the items. The other good thing is you can get to see what it is you will be getting before committing that 1000L. Personally I was thrilled with this month's offering with 2 full fatpacks of Appliers for Catwa heads, and the stunningly beautiful applier called "Gabriella" from Glam Affair that I am wearing here (also for Catwa). This applier comes in Polar tone only.
The Forest
Also from The Forest is the lovely mid length slightly wavy hair called "Poca" that I am wearing by Pr!tty. This is also a full fatpack! Crowning the hair as a lovely counterpoint to the tones in my "Heather" dress made by Belle Epoque, and available at The Season's Story, is this gorgeous headdress (another fatpack) also at The Forest, and made by LODE, aptly called "Forest Beauty". Gracing my wrists are the delicate Faelyn bracelets by .random.Matter, again available at The Forest.
The decor is ionic's Stage-house, and Forest Speaker, and Nomad's Bright Headed Mannequins. Both are available at The Forest.
The Forest close-up
Finalising my look here is this very pretty lipstick from Zibska called Sing, and available at Shiny Shabby. The collar is by Cellar Door, and is called Dune. It comes in both unscripted, and Open Collar versions, and is available at We <3 Role-Play. Lastly is my fabulous sandals called Hyacinth, by Empire, and available at The Season's Story. And as always with their shoes, it is a fatpack.

What I am Wearing:

Skin - Glam Affair - Catwa Applier - Gabriela - Polar

Lumae at Skin Fair 2016

 One thing anyone that knows me can tell you is I am a skin addict. But only with certain brands. One of those brands is Lumae, whom I was lucky enough to become an official blogger for.

Recently Lumiya retired her older skin collection and completely started again on creating a new skin. Just recently she started releasing them one by one. Her first major release of her new range of human coloured skins is called Eirtae, and is at Skin Fair 2016, and it is stunning.
Front
The list of what is included in the skins is almost as impressive as the new Eirtae Bare skin is. This is what is included: System Skins for use with default avatar, 3 Cleavage options, a full-body freckle option, between 4-6 eyebrow options (depending on skin tone). Body Appliers - Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega, TMP. Head Appliers - Lelutka, Slink, Omega, LOGO, Catwa. Moth Appliers - Loud Mouth, Nyam, Nyam, Sweetlips, Soul. There is also Leevi ears in 3 lengths in matching skintones, Soul Ears appliers, and a modifyiable shape.
Back
Being a bare skin it is just perfect for the base to add make-ups on. So with all that is included in the pack, plus the fact that the skins are just half price for the duration of the Skin Fair, it is a bargain you honestly cannot afford to miss. To show just how beautiful this skin is, I am showing it here on LOGO Alex with no make-up.

Priestess of the Unicorn

The second part of my post on these Unicorns by Half-Deer at The Arcade. This time using them in black.
First item I wanted to mention is this standout "Gabriel" dress from Cila. The one I have on is one of the rares from the gacha at SaNaRae. There is plenty of colours, most of which are commons, so getting the dress itself is easy.
Next up is the Unicorn Head by Enfant Terrible. Another rare from a gacha, this time at The Arcade. There is some great stuff in this machine, so you should be pretty happy even if you don't get the head.
Priestess of the Unicorn
The fabulous hair being worn here is "Leni" by EMO-tions. It is absolutely beautiful with it's very long flowing locks, and flattering forehead braids, and is available at We <3 Role-Play.
My legwraps are called "Reverie" and are by fri. and available at Uber.
I really want to mention this stunning new skin by DeeTaleZ available at Skin Fair called "Kemina" and is for LOGO heads. I'll be doing a feature on the skin itself in another post. To say I am in love with this skin is an understatement. Lastly, also at Skin Fair is the eyeliner by Izzie's, and again for LOGO heads.

Unicorn Grove

I fell instantly in love with the Unicorns in Half-Deer's Unicorn Story gacha at this month's The Arcade. So this is part one of two posts I am doing using them in my props. I have to say these are great, they have several different colours of mane, there is also a black version, and you can mirror them also. All through the pop-up menu.

A few things have caught my eye this month. First of them being the Pixicat "Karma" gacha at The Arcade. It has two lengths of dress, a short, and the long that I am wearing here. The version I played was the fitted one which gives both a Maitreya and Slink fitted dress. There is several colours in each style, and of course the rares, but if like me you only want a common, that is pretty easy to get.
Unicorn Grove
Next up on my list of items to show you is this very pretty, and versatile "Mima" hair by Amacci, and available at Cosmopolitan. I love the short sassyness of this style, and how it perfectly frames the face. I was absolutely thrilled that one of the colour options was an almost exact match to the pink of my dress!
Last on the list is the "Violets" gacha by LODE at this month's The Chapter Four. The rares are flying owls! so that in itself makes it worth playing. But if owls don't tempt you, the fantastic flower eyebrows should. They are just so right for Spring. There is also two styles of head accessories, a crown style, and a wreath style. I'm wearing the crown style.
