Hair Fair 2018 – VIP Early Access RAFFLE – starts 3rd September

Hair Fair 2018 - Raffle Promo Poster

Prize: The two winners each day will win Early Access entry to Hair Fair 2018 for themselves and one friend. Prizes cannot be traded, so you and your friend must be available on 21st September 2018. There will be 10 drawings, and the tickets will be emptied each time, so come back every day to keep trying until you win!

Over the years in the lead up to Hair Fair, we ran a photography contest to win prizes and the most coveted early access to Hair Fair. This year we decided to bring everyone back into Second Life itself. The plan is to get people amped up and excited for Hair Fair by visiting different Hair stores all over the grid, and entering the first Hair Fair VIP Early Access Raffle.

Hair Fair 2018 - Raffle Ticket Machine Picture

To enter is a two-teleport process:

  1. teleport to one of the stores listed below click the ticket dispenser (as shown) and get a folder containing a ticket a landmark, and info notecard
  2. teleport using that landmark, wear the ticket and click the entry terminal. If you happen to get distracted by wonderful hair and items on the way, well that is just more fun for you.

At the end of each Second Life day, we will list two winners on this website and a new draw will commence. You can enter a new draw each day just teleport to a different store, grab a new raffle ticket, wear it, teleport using the landmark and submit your entry at the raffle machine. It is that easy! Just remember you cannot use tickets more than once, and you cannot get a new ticket from a store you previously visited.

If you have any questions please contact Sasy Scarborough.

 

Each store listed below has a Raffle ticket dispenser visible at that location. (Not all stores participating in Hair Fair are listed due to vacations prior to the event.)

Take a moment for yourself …

Sometimes a girl needs to just get out and get some fresh air, take a little time for herself.  Today I am back at Kalopsia and I found a little place that I could hunker down and take a pic.  I am sporting all sorts of new and fun things.  Blueberry had a brand new release! I am sporting the Jolene set.  Both the top and jeans are sold separately so you have the perfect opportunity to mix and match your colors.  Or if you are a lover of all you can purchase the fatpack and wear all the colors you want ♥

I also took a moment to visit UBER for this amazing round where I, yes, picked up another LAQ head.  This beauty is called Athena, and I did not in any way reshape the head, I just put her on my body style.  You can purchase the matching skin while you are there, and that is shown on the head right now.  Remember with LAQ you only have to purchase the head if you already own one as the HUD is reusable from head to head.  Which allows the owner to cut down the cost ♥

While at UBER I also picked up the new Cae necklace set.  This came with earrings but I think the hair (also from UBER) is covering it.  The necklace is a layered bundle of cuteness as each tier supports cute little stars and moons (the name necklace is a custom and not included).  Speaking of the hair earlier, I am wearing the new LAMB release.  It comes with a style HUD that allows you to choose three different ways to wear the bangs, and I really love the full looking bangs.  The little side swipe in the front is very cute.  So make sure you test out the demo while you are there because … its totally adorable and versatile in how you can wear it.

So that is all I am going to talk about, you can check out more below ♥ Check out the UBER event and the main stores.  Have fun with your purchases ☺

Your Body is Art

Being part of SL for 10 years is a long time and I have been reflecting on my old pictures on Flickr before I moved them off my page.  I have gone through so many changes and looks through all those years.  Some of them I was thinking to myself “What the hell are you thinking?!”  and “Ew, you thought that was cute?” Then there are those times I am walking around SL doing my own thing, I realize that others have some interesting looks.  I see really gorgeous avatars and then I see some really questionable people.

The thing to remember is that each person is art in some form.  From Michelangelo or Picasso your body fits in somewhere.  We dress our bodies up with skins and makeups, clothing and accessories.  Each piece is another part of the creation that we are making almost every day.  As a blogger, I am making art all the time.  It is one of those creative outlets that just make me happy.  I don’t always have time to escape into the real world and do these things but in SL I can be creative as I please.

Today I am showing the upgraded skins by LAQ to go with the heads.  If you are a LAQ user then you can purchase the new skins and get the same tones as before.  For those that are new to LAQ there is a number system with 8 different tones ranging from pale to dark.  What I love about these skins are they do not have that orange tinge that some skins tend to have.  The update bodies now INCLUDE FREAKLES (Freckles).  Yes I call them freakles.  They are made for Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, and Slink.   Make sure to head on over to the main store and test it all out! Find the shade that works best for you and also test out the heads too, because they are so gorgeous and I love wearing all of them!

Oh! if you are interested in my background.  You can get yours from Tres Chic, it just opened and it was created by Shady Bonne owner of House of Shade.  It’s a cute little Art Studio ♥ There is so much potential with a set like this so make sure you check it out!

I am a blogger!

Hi everyone! I am hoping you are all having a good day! Its the weekend and its time to finally relax after a hard week of working.  I am bringing you another LAQ head creation.  Mallory is stepping up her game and brought us not only a new head and skin, but she has placed out some TEARS.  I am including a link to the tears by the picture so you can see her high rez video clip of the tears.  Unfortunately I don’t have software that would allow me to grab it the way I wanted.  I am open to suggestions if anyone wants to let me know how to grab screen recordings.  I think I really like this head for the fact that it is a bit different in the girly girl look that comes out from LAQ.  Rain looks a bit mature and to me more like a tomboy look and i really am digging on it.  I did minimal edits on the face to define the parts that I liked.  You can however try the demo at Collabor88 where you can find the head, skin and tears! You will not be disappointed. ♥

While you are at Collabor88 you can test out the hair I am wearing my #Foxy.  I really love how this hair brought out my tomboy kinda look.  It’s pigtails in the back with ribbon laced through the tops of the tails, and feathers and chain in the back (which you can see here). I was really happy with this hair, its perfect for those times when you wanna be casual and yet have a little complicated in the look.  I say this because I know in the real world I am not gonna even try to do that to my hair, but I love the look!

Tears are available.  If you would like to see what that would look like, please click the link and see the LAQ video on the tears ♥

My Black Heart’s To Blame

Just a picture I was inspired to do by Dreaming Thicket’s new beautiful royal crown release at Enchantment. I wanted to do a more solemn but visually impactful photo that was not your usual kingly picture and this was the outcome. I was lucky enough to find the perfect skin tone made by Plastik that matched what I had in mind. This tune set the mood for this creation 🙂

Simple Beauty

This is going to be a short and sweet post.  I love this dress…. the end.

 

 

Kidding.  But seriously I love this dress.  I wore it for my party when it was my birthday! Its so simple and delicate.  Now when I say simple I do not mean that in a bad way at all! Its very elegant and sweet.  I find it pure.  But the way I have it styled is very simple.  Just an up style of my hair and the dress ♥ I feel that the dress is the shining moment and doesn’t needs all the flashy to go with it.  Which is why I called its Simple Beauty.  The details of the dress says it all in my opinion.  Mesh flowers adorn the dressing gown and makes up the straps of this gown.  It’s long and graces the floor just lightly.   You can find it at FaMESHed.  Created by JustBecause.  Make sure to test out the demo and just enjoy it.  There are so many colors and flower color options too! Place on the HUD and style it to your fitting ♥
