Bandana Day – Hair Fair 2012 LeLutka & SasyPants

Bandana Day - Hair Fair 2012 LeLutka

Bandana Day is today at Hair Fair 2012!  This day is set aside every year during Hair Fair 2012, to honor and show support. Second Life residents create unique one of a kind bandanas every year for this event, and they run the gamut from chic to cheeky.  The bandanas are $50L, and are a 100% charity donation.  Please remove your hair in support, and grab a fun bandana or more from the bandana booths located around each sim at Hair Fair 2012.

Bandana Day - Hair Fair 2012 SasyPants

Today I am wearing three bandanas, firstly the very stylish Faith bandana from LeLutka. This features a turban like bandana with color print, and option scarf with fringe to elongate the look.  In my other photos I am wearing two bandanas created by Sasy Scarborough of SasyPants, who also is responsible for Hair Fair 2012, as event coordinator, planner, the list of task and responsibilities is endless.  These two bandanas are super cute, featuring little piggies as the theme, a girl and boy are both represented with top hat and bow, all fashionably done in knit!  These three styles are keepers, and I can’t wait to wear my piggies as a knit cap as well this winter.

Celestial Studios is another fashion house that’s been a mainstay for sometime.  The designer is immensely talented, and kept us skinned and clothed for quite some time.  Her designs have always been casual, stylish, and hip.  Her range of pants and jeans are some of my most favorite.  She was quite clever when she made them, doing accompanying belts of various styles to wear with, on the pant, and jackets layers.  I hearted her for this, along with her amazing sculpted pant prims.  Located with the jeans, are her corduroys, and suede pants.  The textures are some of the best you are going to find inworld.  If you stop by, check out her tees, hoodies, and handbags.

I’m wearing many brights for late summer, this fun one shoulder halter is from Sand Shack Surf Couture, featuring bright sculpted flower adornment on the shoulder strap.  The colors are rich, and the detail has depth, and excellent textured.  There is more added color with my Zaara painted bangles and earrings, and I picked up 3 of my favorite colors in this outfit for my shoes from Kalnins.  I love being able to do this with it’s color change hud.  It was a hard choice between a cherry patent leather purse from Celestial Studios, and denim one, while I was trying to decide, Sasy told me about these cute bags at Bare Rose, and the style was exactly what I wanted. A simple belt lightens the look up in the middle, I like the casual look of this belt from EarthStones, called Leather and Laced. It’s available in some neutral tones as well, I would have loved if this came in red or blue, or was mod so I could tint. My nails and rings are a combination set from Page 3.  Ring finish and polish colors are changeable by hud, available in a pack of sizes.  My skin choice is Tuli’s Jade line, I love the eyeshadow on this one, worn with Chaisuki’s lashes.  The hair is Ploom I recently blogged them, and can’t wait to show off all my Ploom purchases!  I love this hair!  This is Kemper in Fudge, nice, full, and flexi.

Addicted To Base

Nyte'N'Day Essential Jeans Composite
Addicted To Base

Most days I can be found bumming around the grid in my jeans, Sasy can attest to this.  I have managed to acquire quite a collection as once I find a pair I love, I tend to go back and grab the fat pack.  I’d planned a post on my favorite jeans, and then couldn’t decide on shades, and hem styles, so I have decided time willing to split them all up into a post on each store rather then an all in one.

Nyte'N'Day Essential Jeans Set 1

I’m starting off with Nyte’N’Day’s Essential Jeans.  They  feature 2 styles of leg hems, in Cuffed and Straight, both of which are well sculpted enough that I can’t pick a favorite and just wear them according to what suits my mood and look.  They come in 6 colors Acid, Dark, Dark Blue, Dark Stone, Light, and Stone. Good detail and seams, and the shading done brilliantly. The acid wash reminds me of their Button-Fly Jeans in faded if you ever loved these, you can snag the Essential in Acid for an updated variation.

Nyte'N'Day Essential Jeans Set 2

My outfit starts with Nyte’N’Day’s Hok Shirt in Espresso, a sculpted fitted halter.  Featured in several colors, with beads at the shoulder its a sexy shirt. Mind you there is no way one could create this shirt with a glitch layer, so be prepared, wear your hottest skin, cause it’s gonna be a peep show for the public if your skin rezzes before the sculpt does!  The included glitch layer is worn low to provide extra fabric when you stretch between the halter and the base tie.  I love it, and damn straight I didn’t let a silly thing like flashing people keep me from wearing it.  I have on Tuli’s latest skin, Audrey, worn with the eyelash layer.  This is an interesting skin, definitely Tuli all around, and well done, but limiting if you are not using viewers that allow for extra layers.  SL 2.0/2.1 is the recommended viewer for this skin if you want the ability to wear the eyelash base AND the lipstick layers.  On Emerald I could manage eyelash or lips,  I love Tuli’s lips in the natural/bare and went for the lashes.  My belt is also from Nyte’N’Day it’s their latest release and comes in various neutrals shown here in dark brown.  A new release from Kalnins is on my feet! Saleina!  If you aren’t familiar with Kalnins Footwear, they specialise in sculpted shoes usually with prim feet.  One of the most simple to use shoe huds for tinting included, I swear it’s no tears!  The hud also lets you change various elements of the shoe from store selected colors to customise them for your look.  I am wearing pounds and pounds of jewels, from Zaara and Mandala, all this topped off with a new release from LeLutka, their Amanda hair! I love the messy look with hair sticks holding them together.

Idiosyncrasy @ Vanity Universe Skin Fair

Idiosyncrasy - Mia Exotic - Body

Idiosyncrasy debuted a lovely dark toned skin at Vanity Universe’s Skin Fair called Mia Exotic.  This skin is darker than your average tan, with juicy lush lips, light make up, and a dusting of freckles across the nose.  The freckles themselves are quite a piece of work, as anyone with freckles knows, Ashia Tomsen was spot on!  Excellent seam work, shading reflects a fit physique with six-pack abs.  A variety of makeups, with the focus being the lips, and light eye makeup.

Idiosyncrasy - Mia Exotic - Make Up

Shown with a superbly designed bikini called Esha from Zaara. Vibrant and patterned, it’s also available in several colors, and some chic neutrals.  To match my swimwear I chose my Coquette heels from Kalnins, scripted color change, and re-sizeable.  Exile‘s Angelica Remix hair is a wonderful sexy hair, full of static and flexi parts, shown here in chocolate.

Idiosyncrasy’s skins are featured at Vanity Universe Skin Fair this year.   Charity skin selection purchases will go to Care International, an international charity devoted fighting against global poverty.  Read more about the charity here.  Donation kiosks will be available on the sim.
