Hair Fair 2009 is in full swing, and wow it has been a bumpy ride so far. At any given time during the weekend one or two of the Hair Fair sims was offline. Thank you so much to the Lindens for doing as much as they could to make sure that we were back up as soon as possible, because it was a very stressful time for them with thousands of regions in the redzone.
Also a big shout out to those at Beta technologies that have provided all four sims for Hair Fair this year at a cost to them, not only of the land but also by being awesome, and actually changing two of the sims to include Hair Fair in the title.
Hair Fair 2009 is from now until 4th of July, and with that in mind it is really important that the word is spread. This event has always showcased NEW Items only from talented hair creators all over the grid, but has always been about the fundraising aspect of it.
This year all money donated will go to Locks of love, and that money will pay for wigs that are made for children with hair loss due to illness.
On July 3rd this year, and every year whichever day it falls on, Bandana Day is coming. Bandana Day is the day when we all remove our beautiful hair, and wear the modifited Bandanas that are for sale ONLY at Hair Fair , this and every year.
Bandana’s are at the landing points of each sim at Hair Fair 2009 and are only 50L each and transferable. These bandana’s as always are creative and fun, and a good collectible, that will be deleted once Hair Fair 2009 is over , don’t miss out on getting something someone made that you adore.
We have also added some flickr groups to the Hair Fair 2009 groups this year, please add pics to those as this is the way all year people find out about this event, and it works as a time line for past and future exciting events.
Hair Fair 2009 “Show us Your Hair” Group – This group is for all of those that have been blogging, taking snapshots, art pictures and everything else, that showcases the NEW Releases at this years Hair Fair.
Hair Fair/Bandana Day – This group is for people to upload their ads for their bandana’s they made this year, or years past (please specify if not this year) as well as snapshots of people wearing Bandanas at this years fair, on Bandana Day 2009, and other years past.
I have been shown pictures over the past three years from excited people participating, so this year we want everyone to share with each other.
Hair Fair Booths – A Group where creators or fans can show the booths of this year and years past that they enjoyed or built for Hair Fair, often these just get deleted after, we would love to keep a memory of them here.
Hair Fair 2009 Official Vendors Group – This group is for all the participants of this years fair to show their vendor ads, this way people can see exactly what hair belongs to what store and so on, and also be tempted by them . This group is only for pictures submitted by the creators of the hair.
Thank you all, and remember it is open until July 4th and is a celebration of Hair and a worthwhile cause. So if you have already been, and it was over the weekend with sims going down left and right, make sure you come back when the sims settle, you can always keep an eye on the map (type Hair Fair in search) and see how many people are in each sim.
Thank you again because this event always makes many so greatful for the community of Second Life.
