Hair Fair 2013 – Vanity Hair

Hair Fair 2013 - Vanity Hair

I’m wearing the new Boys Will Be Boys hairstyle from Vanity Hair released at Hair Fair 2013. It’s a high volume updo, with bun, that comes down in two pigtails, wrapped with hair, and ending in front and in back with huge a huge curl.  I’m wearing it with Tres Blah’s Frilly Dress in blush from this months Collabor88.  It’s a romantic little sleeveless dress with ruffled bodice and hem, and bow tied to the side.  It’s available in a variety of colors and prints. I’ve accessorized it with LaGyo’s Isabella earrings, and necklace in pale, mesh flowers on gold cord. I’m also wearing G Fields Ribbon Slingback shoes in salmon. They’re nice slingbacks, and each shoe has a menu when you click it to turn the front and back bows off. Making it a really versatile part of your wardrobe.  My manicure is a peach to flamingo pink ombre polish in Set 31 from Flair, I’m wearing it on my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands, with skin appliers from Izzie’s to match my Izzie’s Jill skin.

Hair Fair 2013 - Vanity Hair

The other two hairstyles Vanity Hair released at Hair Fair 2013 are Fantastic Girls, and Sonata. Fantastic Girls is a voluminous pouf that ends about shoulder level with soft barely there curls. It would be great for formal wear. Sonata is an intricate looped updo that frames the head from the back, another great formal wear hairstyle.

Til The Clouds Clear

No hiding the fact I like purple in this outfit.  I really like the new mesh Jessy Studded Shorts from Erratic, they are available in a variety of colors, but I really like their dip dyes.  Great textures, detail, and fit.  Wasabi Pills also has a new release, at FaMESHed.  Noriko is the cutest mesh blunt cut bob, with color changeable barrettes via HUD.  Another current event item is the mesh Half Tucked Tee from Tres Blah I’m wearing.  It’s currently available at Collabor88, but not for long, as they are due for a new round soon.  Grab it while you can, at a great price, or visit their main afterwards.   I finished off my purple lust with Maitreya’s mesh Alexa Wedges.  I’m wearing all the accessories it seems, from tons of stores,  Boom’s cute Take It Easy Tote, which is available in a variety of designs, this one being the Bar Code.  I’m wearing Yummy’s Mixtape Necklace, and Hodgepodge Beaded Bracelets, with a necktie from Coco Designs.  This necktie is part of the Puff Sleeves Top in Yellow, available in their discounted department located on the top floor of the store.

Camille

Camille @ Mayfair

A new session of Collabor88 just started, and is cutely themed in “French New Wave” a fusion of Mod and romantic leanings. I picked up this cute outfit called Camille from Tres Blah there.  It’s a lovely bulky cable knit jumper/sweater, and skirt outfit done in mesh.  It’s all one piece, and is available in a number of colors/patterns. Shown here is pale pink, which is a lovely light peach/salmon pink/sakura pink jumper/sweater with white floral skirt.  I picked up the greens in the floral skirt with my Long Scarf, and Moxie shoes both from Maitreya. The scarf is available in a number of colors, and is made of sculpts, and flexi prims that move with you.  The Moxie’s are a fun shoe featuring many options from 2 styles of over the knee socks in a number of colors, and even a shorter sock add on, textures, and shoes are menu color change.  I accessorized with a bag from the latest mesh release from R.icielli.  The Yuse bag comes in a wide variety of colors, and is laden with detail, which I like.  I also like that it is available in so many many colors just as is the rest of their collection of bags, and clothing, I seriously want it all.  Another new release I am wearing is the Trend hair from LeLutka, a soft mesh style that drapes over one shoulder.  I loved the look of this hair, as I did with all three new hair styles they just released so much I had to snag them in my usual Light Brunette pack and another in Light Blonde.  I also purchased this cute ring at Collabor88 from Whippet & Buck, it’s non rigged mesh so you can mod, and available in a variety of colors in one pack.  I shot my shadow photo at Mayfair, an incredible mesh build done by the Celoe team, featuring main stores for Celoe, and Mon Tissu. You need to visit!

Alphabet Challenge-D

Alphabet Blog Challenge-D

With letter D in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge I resorted to pulling out some favorite items that have been in my inventory at least a year.  My first thought was hair from Dernier Cri, check out this favorite circa Hair Fair 2010.  I couldn’t resist using Digit Darkes, whose letter D became logos for her store. She may be gone, but she’s still a favorite in my closet especially her slip dresses…worn here as a shirt, under this cute chocolate houndstooth jacket from DeeTaleZ, with my Marni skirt from DeLa. I frothed a bit at the mouth when fri.day released their Dream Catcher bags, love getting to wear them out and about.

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.
