Autumn Masquerade

So Sasy invited me to tag along to a masquerade ball being held by The Fashion Loft. I’ve not been to a formal event in years. #platformdwelling So, there was some shopping to do. I decided it’s October, autumn, there was a high chance of many attending would go with a gothic or Halloween theme, in additional to very formal and elaborate. I’m pleased to say I calculated correctly. A few were horror/gothic, most were black or red gowns.

I went with Autumn as my theme and wanted to keep it very simple. I found this great mask first, a gacha from HEXtraordinary, and went from there for aesthetic. I knew it might be a challenge to find a good fit color wise, then I recalled the immense number of gowns from my past social life I collected long ago that hadn’t even been worn yet and with BOM now in effect I had many options. So glad Slink has come out with the Slink Physique Hourglass Mesh Body Bundle (Redux)! Very pleased that I can wear some fantastic system skins I have like the Isla skin by League.

I haven’t been a huge fan of mesh gowns as I don’t care for the movement waist down due to rigging, so I deep dived for some flexi. I revisited my Last Call, and Nicky Ree stash. However, nothing matched the tones of my mask I had already selected and was determined to use.

A quick review of Marketplace turned up this lovely autumn gown by Caverna Obscura. It’s available in a few autumn gradients, and I went with brown in case there was someone else with the same idea, they would likely go with the “Pumpkin” option which was more vibrant. The dress did not come with any alphas, so I found an alpha from a slip dress that worked.

The mask and dress were a great match. I tinted some gold opera gloves (system layer) from Adam n Eve to match the bodice. I eschewed jewelry and went with some particle sparkles in gold and green from Cole’s Corner which are currently available at Uber. Since I haven’t actually shopped in a while for formal wear or even purposely chosen an updo for such purposes I went with a half up half down style from Kuni. It was pulling out older content and I was pleased with how well much of it held up since mesh. Looking forward to hopefully wearing some in the near future.

Hair Fair 2016 – Bandana Day

28689666905_e4d10c3b28_c.jpgHair Fair 2016 – Bandanas – 1 by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

It’s the last day of Hair Fair 2016, and only a few hours left.  This is traditionally called Bandana Day. The day we take off our hair, and wear a bandana to show we care. As a Hair Fair committee member, it’s one of my most favorite things about Hair Fair. The committee and designers put in so much to make everything run smooth as possible for the event, and creators, and residents alike also get to be involved by creating the Bandana’s that are sold every year. They are all limited edition, and like many others I love collecting them. From the insanely stylish to the insanely creative takes on head gear. The best part are when you hear about why someone felt compelled to help out, and create one, either in memory of someone, or their personal experiences, or out of creative compassion.

Hair Fair 2016 ends July 31st. Featuring 80+ hair creators of Second Life, each hair sold donates a percentage to Wigs For Kids. Each sim also contains Bandana Booths featuring bandanas made by residents of Second Life. Bandana’s are limited edition, $50L each, with 100% of price going to Wigs for Kids.
