Ok so this is what I know about what is what this weekend. First off, those people over at Freestyle that have been promoting the buns off new stores, and free items for the last 4 years, are having a celebration. I remember when Ashia Tomsen used to do the posts over there almost solo at one stage, but over the years many incredible bloggers have worked with Creamy to make it a most memorable blog. The event is 4*44*444 similar to Collabor88 in the concept that everything there is one of those prices, and what I have seen so far is well worth checking out.

Other things worth checking out is the Annual Choice Stamp Rally event, the idea is that you do some regular shopping in one or more of the stores on the list. That you buy however many items you like that have the Stamp Choice cards in them, you can see that in either edit contents or the buy menu, probably wiser to go with the contents. So then once you have the cards, you attach them to either various parts of your body YES YOU CAN DO THEM ALL AT ONCE, or you can be like me and attach them to your hud spaces on your screen and line them up all pretty and no one will see them lol. Then you go to every store on the list and find the stamp pad and click it and you will see a stamp appear on the card. This is also why I wear to HUD, you don’t have to try and navigate your camera to all the different cards to see that. Then once you have all your cards stamped, and trust me this takes such a small amount of time, even with all the shopping you end up doing in between, because the stores are always fabulous. You go to the final destination and drag your completed card to the Kiosk and choose your reward, one at a time, and make sure you are really aware of what you want in advance because you don’t have long to choose. I got an incredible life sized doll house and the Y’s House lounge suite, and a great handbag today, plus all the shopping, it was a great morning spent with Whimsy.

The second of the sister skins for LeLutka hit the grid today. Hadley is a younger sister to the previous Flutter line, her button nose and pouty lips shouldn’t fool you though, she is all stature and focus. Something about the overall Hadley look had me thinking athlete as soon as I saw her.

Doing the Rockstar look today. Well maybe not intented to be one, but if I was going to be on stage doing my thing I would so be all about looks like this one – I have also been humming Tex Perkins “Lawyer” for the past two hours so that helped my mood a bit. I love button down dresses, almost as much as button down coats, but I think you get a lot more out of doing something like this with a dress.

Wow it is over for another year. Hair Fair is such a big part of the committee’s lives for the months leading up to, that after it is all over and the booths are all packed away – thank you so much Mel and Whimsy – there is this kind of ‘ So um what now ? ” feeling.

Well to make sure that I didn’t fall back into the same old same old, I got right back on my VR Studio and took some pics of these great new releases. First off for the past few days I have been strutting around Second Life in these jeans admiring my own bottom.

Hair Fair 2011 – Bandana Day

Bandana Day 2011

Bandana Day One

Bandana Day 2

My first experience with Hair Fair was Bandana Day. In 2007 Six Kennedy asked me to be the one that organised it, when I went to her suggesting it as an idea. I never i8magined what it would do, how people would embrace it, and yet every year people come forward from all over SL wanting to create one, or letting us know that they have sent their whole group over, held events wearing them and so on.

This years mix of bandanas is as awesome as years previous, there are RP themed ones, beach themed ones, fun retro ones, and very glamorous ones. Today is the day that we remove our hair to show we care. A day without hair to show some support to those that have lost, or are losing their hair to illness, not a lot to ask for, and it is just your avatar that does it. Mind you some have actually cut hair in past years and sent to charity to help in that way also.

Many over the years collect the bandanas and wear them to other laggy events, I see them often through the year, and cannot help but be proud that it is Hair Fair that provided that oppurtunity. Also the are transferable, so you can buy many and share with friends, or pass to others when it is laggy. Whatever you do, or are doing, or have done, this year so far the bandanas have raised over a Hundred Thousand Lindens and as they sell for only 50L each, that is awesome.

So whether you wear them today, or in the future, just be sure to buy some, because they are only available at the Fair, and if you haven’t looked yet, you may find out that someone you know made one…don’t want to miss out on that.

Also not wanting to miss out on is the Second Hair Fair Flickr Contest. It ends tomorrow but the access to the fair ends tonight at Midnight, which is only 14 hours to go. The contest prizes are amazing, and if you already have the pro we can add the time on, so don’t not enter because of that – some have asked.

Hair Fair 2011 – Last Stand and Deliver

I heard a secret today, well ok not really a secret, but Royal Blue is having a 50% off ALL BLUE items SALE. Now I am pretty sure it has started, but the only way to know for sure is to compare the prices of the blue items to other colours. If half price then BUY BUY BUY. If not then wait until further announcement.

Hair Fair 2011 – Tight Tight Baby

So many exciting ways to create hair, it is what I most love about Hair in Second Life, that with the same tools available people can still come up with unique and fun ways to showcase their talent. I also love the textures that have appeared at this years fair, as well as the number of developed Hair Base Tattoos, that have definitely improved since last year…

Just a reminder that the Flickr Contest is on until the 16th at Midnight, DO NOT MISS OUT, the pics so far are amazing and the prizes are wonderful. Also as it is almost the last day of the fair that means it is also coming up to Bandana Day, the 15th of July this year, but always last day of the fair. We remove our hair to show we care and wear one of the Bandanas modified by people from all over sl. You can buy one or more from the Hair Fair only for 50L and they are mod transfer, so you can send them to friends, and change throughout the day a few times, they are lots of fun and the money from their sale all goes to Wigs for Kids.

Hair Fair 2011 – Minty Goodness

Ok so I am like trying to catch up and stuff, and all the while unpacking and sorting and ooooing and ahhhing. But first a public service announcement …Dearest Darling Designers, Pleeeeeeeeease for the love of all things buyable, do not set your boxes and bags to NO COPY, when the items inside them are copy. Also if the items inside are copy and the box/bags are copy DO NOT add a picture or notecard that is no copy.

If trying to unpack and the box ends up no copy, two things can happen, either the box gets deleted because someone has those warnings off. Or the item has to be taken back to inventory which makes the whole inventory go back to where the box was, not where you unpacked to. Another reason, having copy boxes/bags makes keeping inventory to a minimum an easier task, as once worn you can delete the folder knowing you have the whole item safely in a box. But the most important of all, to both designer and customer should be, SECOND LIFE IS NOT THAT RELIABLE! there I said it, I love LL so hard, but honestly mixing perms is a big no no. If something hiccups, you have the added risk of your items becoming a neverending supply of resendable items…DO NOT RISK IT.
