Hair Fair 2014 - Amacci

Amacci released 3 hair styles and a gift hair at Hair Fair 2014 this year.  They’re all mesh, and Greta and Coco feature lovely ribbons/bows versions. The Ribbons/Bows are color-change via HUD and I really like the texture and color palette. She’s changed up her hair packs, and I am in love with all of them. I’m wearing all her hair from the Red’s pack, in a variety of the fades included in them. Zoe is a gift hair, which is available in a Variant Pack, which is a select of natural and fun tones, including fades. It’s a beautiful soft low bun. Marco is a great guy style, but I love it on me.

Donation kiosks are set up all over the fair. For more information, a variety of teleports, and participating stores refer to the Hair Fair blog.

Hair Fair 2013 – Curio Obscura

Hair Fair 2013 - Curio Obscura s

Curio Obscura made some fabulous hair for Hair Fair 2013. The designer, Pandora Wigglesworth, is always imaginative, and always creates a hair worth talking about. This release at Hair Fair 2013 is no different.  My style photo is of the Big Fat Spirals hair style in white, with my WL it’s a bit grey so sue me. The hair style true to it’s name, is composed of Big Fat Spiral ringlets, the kind you might find on some petulant little brat out there. I’ve gone goth Lolita with it in white, and Bare Rose’s Nite outfit. It’s mesh, modifiable, and full of details. My skin is Mother Goose’s Lene 1 with teeth and light brow.  I’m wearing Amacci’s Gaze Eyes in Blue Pink, as they go so well with paler skin.

Hair Fair 2013 - Curio Obscura

Curio Obscura released five hairstyles at Hair Fair 2013.  Above I styled Big Fat Spirals, and they also released Braids Unfurled Pigtails with and without bows.  The bows are color changeable as is the hair if you click it, you will get a nice selection for customizing.  Glamazon Swoop is, as you might guess, all about glamor in Amazonian proportions. It includes a ‘mirror’ version so you can always show off your best side. The Godiva Deluge was a refreshing take on your usual Lady Godiva style, featuring masses of fat curls, it includes a body alpha so you too can effect the perfect demure style with just your tresses.  Curio Obscura’s Manehawk was truly magnificent for proportion, fullness, and the ability to give a reptilian impression from behind.  I’ve worn Glamazon Swoop, Godiva Deluge, Manehawk with Bare Rose’s mesh Blinger dress in Gold, and Silver.

I’ve accessorized with Maitreya’s Calgary Clutch in noir, Maitreya’s Liaison heels in raven, and Miel’s Sha jewelry set.  I’m wearing Izzie’s new Jill skin in sunkissed, and used their skin applier hud on my SLink avatar enhancement hands for a perfect match.  My manicure is from Flair’s set 111, which is features a silver wave at the top of the nail, and solid color down to the tips, in this case red to match my lipstick.

MINA Hair Fair 2012 Anouk Lente

MINA released 3 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2012. MINA hair comes with hair shade hud with resizer.  Daan a unisex short hair style that also comes with an additional hud for highlights. My larger photo shows the hair in a solid shade, and two highlight variations. Anouk is a loose long hair, that has a bit of a wave to it. I really liked how nice and full it was.  Lente is a pulled back soft pony tail with tendrils on the side of the face.  I love this shade I went with, technically its in the Brown range but its got a bit of red to it, all around a great shade.  MINA has a gift hair at Hair Fair 2012, it’s Blanche a sassy angled bob, in a very light blonde.  It’s easily tint-able, for those who like to tint, I was able to replicate one of my favorite shades of reddish brown easily.

SLink released 3 lovely mesh styles at Hair Fair 2012.  A gorgeous soft french twist, a lovely soft braid called Mica, and this short style called Nicolette.  Nicolette is angled nicely, and I how short is is on the side. The french twist is soft, draping to the side of the face.  Mica is a cute braid, with whisps here and there, and loose tendrils that have escaped here and there.  These three styles are currently available only at Hair Fair 2012 until July 29th, after that they will be available at SLink’s main store.

SLink Hair Fair 2012 Composite

Erratic just released a mesh leather dress that’s hot, well textured, and available in a variety of colors.  I liked the form, the collar, and the thick look to the leather. I’ve paired them with Maitreya‘s mesh couture leggings in oil-disco, and accessorized with some favorites from Mandala.  I’m wearing new mesh eyes from Izzie’s called Deep Dark Eyes.  As you can guess they feature of deep tones and I like how deep even the teal shade I am wearing is.  They’re easy to wear, barely any adjusting, I only made my iris’ a bit smaller I went with 1.20 on the horizontal and diagonal as a personal preference, even 1.1 would have been perfectly fine. They also come with a layer version.

Hair Fair 2012 – Clawtooth

Clawtooth Seredipity Hair Fair 2012

Bubbles Clawtooth released four long hair styles at Hair Fair 2012.  I’ve been so busy for such a long time, I haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy some Clawtooth hair even though Bubbles is very active in releasing hairs. Shame on me, cause I love Clawtooth, and apparently I have really been missing out.  So while I help organize and build Hair Fair, depriving myself in the process of hair, it makes it all worth it’s still exciting for me.  The release included 2 long loose hairstyles, one featuring a lovely victory type curl/swoop, and 2 braids that were whispy about the face.

Hair Fair 2012 – Demo Group

Hair Fair 2012 – Demo Group

Hair Fair Demo Group

The Hair Fair Demo Group has always not only been a great way to see all the hair releases early – Hair Fair Demos are sent the day before Hair Fair starts – but also a fun way to try on styles from creators that may be new to you, with friends and family at home.

Not only can you compile a shopping list ahead of time, and be prepared to just shop at the event, it will also help with not having to rez each style in a busy environment, store to store.

Have a party, get your friends to vote on styles you love, play dress ups with your besties and convince your partners that trying on girl or boy hair is fun behind closed doors – don’t forget to make your snapshot silent while you take pics of them.

This event is a huge Charity Event for Wigs for Kids, and we want it to be as fun as possible for you, and we love hearing all the excitement leading up to the event, and Demos are a great way to do that. You will find a clickable board HERE  or you can copy paste secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about  in chat and open your chat history to click the underlined link to join that way.

All hair sold at hair fair 2012 will be donating a percentage to Wigs for Kids, the charity of choice for Hair Fair. If you want to know more about Wigs for Kids you can visit their website, or watch this short film of its founder and how Wigs for Kids is now a legacy to a loved on.

Hair Fair 2011 – Shagtastic

4th of July Bombshell
I put this outfit together a while ago, but recently updated it with Sway’s beach bag.  I’m wearing skin and eye gifts available from Ploom and Digital Eyes at Hair Fair.  Shag has released two women’s styles at Hair Fair 2011, this one is Bombshell, which I love! It’s a great layered angled bob. Super tousled, good structure.  I’m also wearing a release from the beginning of summer from DeLa, a cute open cardigan, with color change buttons, over a great one piece dress from E! in navy.  These shoes from Slink are a dream to tint, and fun to wear.  While at the fair I noticed this jewelry set in an ad for hair at SugarsmacK, and rushed right over to get it at Indy&Co.   It’s available in a variety of colors, and features the necklace and earrings to match.

Shag Ingenue
This dress was a surprise to find at Nylon Outfitters, I totally didn’t expect to find it, as I usually associate them with more casual wear.  It’s cute, and totally ready for a party, which I thought was perfect with Shag’s other women’s hair from Hair Fair. I feel somewhere in between Holly Golightly and Romy and Michel.  I love the height of it, and that it stills is long.

Tempest

Tempest

I have been slowly accessorizing and playing with different tops for this outfit for weeks, trying out different boots, hair, tops.  I finally settled on J’s latest release of their Cowgirl Boots2.  I love these boots in this red, but I snagged the fat pack.  These are classics!  The fringe is flexi, and has great movement.  I’m wearing the latest from Tres Blah, this lovely peasant top, with embroidery.  If you like it it’s also available as a dress at the store.  By chance I was already planning this outfit with Tres Blah’s denim cut offs, which are layer only, and I like that about this style.  My skin is by Felicity Blumenthal, made specially for Another Fundraiser II called Ginger Skin.  Only $50L with 100% proceeds going to Red Cross (for Japan).  My purse is from Addict and also benefits Japan, with proceeds going to no kill animal shelters in Japan.  The Fur Japan event started last night, and is jam-packed with items!  I picked up three great houses there. My hair, Tempest, is from Exile, and I am in love with the length, and soft flex.  My jewelry is from Mood, called Bandara, in silver with turquoise which match my turquoise eyes from Amacci.

I discovered these post processing effects in the Singularity viewer, and was curious to see the effect inworld.  Sometimes you just want to cut the post processing time down, or take snapshot.  This is a great, and I hope they further develop it.  I would like to see the Gaussian Blur effect lightened, and think it would be great to incorporate shadow/highlighted borders too. To access them 1. log into Singularity, 2. on your top tool bar World – Environment Settings – Post Process Effects.  I have made photos demonstrating each of the effects.  Color Filter let you play further with Gamma, and Brightness. I loved being able to change the Saturation while retaining any windlight settings I have on.  Contrast is really nice addition as well.  The Gaussian Blur is great in thought but the effect even at level 1 on the slider is too strong for portraits.  Night vision is way cool!  I like that you can also create an effect, and save it.  It’s really easy to use. To see the effects, click the Enable box, play with the sliders.  The tabs stack so if you want one more than one tabs setting, leave enable on. Check out the photos.
