Hair Fair 2017 – Bandana Day

Hair Fair 2017 - Bandana Day

The last day of Hair Fair is traditionally known as Bandana Day.  In support of those suffering from a variety of diseases causing their hair loss we remove our hair this day, and instead wear a bandana. Each sim also contains Bandana Booths featuring bandanas made by residents of Second Life. Bandanas are limited edition, $50L each, with 100% of price going to Wigs for Kids. Also available this year are Hare’s made by Anya Ohmai, wearables featuring a bandana.

I’ve styled some new releases together, Emery’s St. Lucia leather pants, with this sweater from B.C.C., the back of the sweater, which I totally should have photographed, is low with a tie. I love it as we see so much of our back in SL, it’s nice to have that detail there. I’ve styled it with Livalle’s Rhiannon platform heels, and Minimal’s ABC necklace and bracelet.  To see what Sasy is wearing, check her out on her blog, SasyPants.

Day at the farmers market

Day at the farmers marketI just picked up the London skin from The Skinnery at The Chapter Four event.  It’s comes with a skin, and LeLutka mesh head appliers. I love all the cute freckles.I’m wearing it on LeLutka’s Leda head. I’ve been so busy with real life, that all my goodies from May are like brand new discoveries in my inventory. I picked up this cute shirt from E-Clipse that I’ve been wanting to wear. It was at Shiny Shabby last month. I’ve styled it with Blueberry’s Tila skirt.  I have gotten to wear my jewelry also picked up in a gacha from last month’s Shiny Shabby event by Nomad & Coquette, and they’ve been my favorite pieces recently. I also blogged more of the set here.

Day at the farmers marketI’ve styled this outfit with Bushu’s Kali heels. They were released at My Attic, last month.I like how well they go with my Chicago Tote I picked up at ANE.  It has these cute headphones attached that come in a variety of prints, and you get ALL the prints when you buy a bag color. I love that! I picked up most of the items you see at gacha’s.  I’m at my little bit of Tuscany from 8f8’s
Primavera in Toscana Set from a previous round of the Arcade.  I’ve added in 8f8’s current Arcade gachas from the Green Grocer’s set, which includes the truck you see here. It’s one of the rares, and features a number of single and couples poses in it, and the engine starts! It’s really cute!

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.
