Hair Fair 2015 – Tableau Vivant

Tableau Vivant - TenTableau Vivant released 4 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2015 . They’re located on the Blonde sim. All their hairstyles are shown here in shades from the Balayage tones.  Ten was my immediate favorite, with long tresses to the front, and volume to the crown.  Cara is a full volume style with the upper sections of hair braided to the back, and a bit of a wave. Last Train Home is a hot short hair with volume. Scarlett is a hat hair, that comes with and without hat versions. Also the ability to add a ribbon tie to the hat. This hat is hot, and the hair without it becomes a lovely soft updo.  Cara, Ten, and Last Train Home are unisex with male sizing available with purchase.  Tableau Vivant’s gift was a beautiful headband with tropical flower in 6 colors.

Pink Elephants On Parade

Pink Elephants 1

So when I was a kid, I was obsessed with Dumbo. My parents bought me the sound track on record. Yes, vinyl. I played it over and over, skipping Baby Mine (still makes me cry).  It was then I fell in love with elephants, and more especially pink elephants. Do you know how hard it is to find a pink elephant. This vexed my parents to no end, as it was a frequent request from me. Later on when I was in my teens, and doing community theater, I was in the dressing room with everyone getting ready before opening. The steady stream of flowers came in for everyone as their parents arrived and house crew delivered them. I continued getting ready as the stares and whispering began, ignoring it, and then finally having to comment to everyone, yes there were no flowers being sent to me, nor was I expecting them.

Pink Elephants 2

I knew my parents wouldn’t as I thought at the time flowers were a waste if they weren’t your favorites so I was not expecting any, as lilacs were out of season, and I would expect my mother to hand cut them if they were available. At best I would receive a card. People exchanged looks, I just rolled my eyes, and finished getting ready.  Then the door opened and a crew member came in carrying a giant stuffed pink elephant, I saw from the mirror and started grinning. My parents had finally found one, then I panicked. What if someone else here also liked pink elephants, seriously my heart lurched at the thought it wasn’t mine. But it was. The girls began to comment, questioning what it was, and how they didn’t like it, etc. I didn’t care, it was a gift that my parents and put a lot of effort into hunting down instead of picking up flowers at the local store. I’ve collected elephants ever since, and still find pink elephants the hardest to find. I can find them easily on the internet now, but that takes the special out of it in some way, so I purchase them when I come across them only in real life. Finding the pink elephants from Geek made my heart sing when I was Cirque de Seraphim, and I also picked up the cutest elephant with pink balloon from Mango Cheeks. They’re mod, and I have made them larger for props. The Geek elephants are for wearing as I am in the photo, and the Mango Cheeks elephants are decor.  Now I can fill my little studio up with pink elephants and damn the critics. I am happy.
