Bandana Day – Last Chance for Hair Fair 2012

 

Today is Bandana Day and the last day of  Hair Fair 2012. Wear your bandana today to show you care!
All bandanas are just 50L and benefit Wigs for Kids. I’m wearing LeLutka’s Faith Scarf bandana.
This tie dyed head scarf is in shades of plum and can be worn with or without the part that drapes
over the shoulder.

It’s your last chance today to get out and buy some hair or a bandana to benefit Wigs for Kids,
so if you haven’t been to Hair Fair 2012 go now before it’s too late!

Hair Fair 2012 Ends Tomorrow – Last chance to donate to Wigs for Kids

Hair Fair 2012 ends tomorrow, so your time is running out to grab some amazing new hair styles
and contribute to a great cause. As always, Hair Fair benefits Wigs for Kids, which provides wigs
to children who have lost their hair due to medical issues such as chemotherapy,  alopecia,
and burns. This year, every hair purchased donates a percentage, so shop til you drop, it’s all
for the kids!

I snuck in briefly at the beginning of hair fair and only got back today to scoop up some more
great hair.  (I’ve had a terrible virus which turned into bronchitis and between that and 2 kids
home for summer I really haven’t been on SL for more than a few minutes each day)

Elikatira has several great new mesh styles at the fair, I had to have Flattery because this is
as close to my RL hairstyle as I’ve seen in SL, although it’s much better hair than mine.

I also picked up Nostalgic from Illusory for when I’m feeling youthful and remembering the 80s!
Wasabi Pills is also making some great mesh hair, I got Brigitte in the blonds pack and Zoey in reds.

Clawtooth by Clawtooth has 4 new mesh styles at the fair, my favourites are Serendipity and
Starlight, 2 great long styles.  Rigged mesh is amazing for long hair, doing away with all the
frustrations of hair going through your avatar as you move.

My favourites from Lelutka are these 2 shown, Vesage is a long style with centre part fringe
and softly curling ends, Magdalen can be worn 3 ways. Wear the full updo alone, with the
ponytail, or wear a matching hairbase and the ponytail for a sleek look.

I’m sure all these styles will be in stores after the fair ends, but today is your last chance for your
purchases to help a great charity.  Buy some hair or some of the many custom bandanas created
exclusively for hair fair, and help some sick children!

Find the full list of stores and SLURLS on the official Hair Fair 2012 Blog.

 

Gos Desire Mesh Ankle Boots

The latest release from Gos Custom Footwear is these amazing mesh ankle boots, aptly named Desire.  They come in 5 colours which you can purchase individually or as a fatpack. The lovely thing about the fatpack is, as always with Gos, that it gives so many options to customize your boots. The metals included are silver or brass, and the toecap and heel can be metal as well as the strap hardware and buckle.

Check out a close up taken in world

Creator Gospel Voom always does such an amazing job on the textures. See the realistic leather texture, the stitching details, and the highlighting on both the leather and the metal parts. I love that these boots are realistic without being a photograph slapped onto the mesh. There’s a lot of work to get those textures just so.

Rigged mesh is not modifiable, so there are 5 standard sizes included, as well as a non-rigged pair which are scripted for both the texture changes and to resize. The rigged pair texture change via a hud.

Try on a free demo before you purchase. Available at the Gos Mainstore and on the SL Marketplace.

PS: Did I forget to mention that these are not only impeccably made, they are smoking hot sexy boots? Well, you could see that for yourself, anyway!

March Mesh Madness – coldLogic

More newness from March Mesh Madness in today’s look. I started with this cute jacket / tube combo from coldLogic. I like that you get the pieces to wear either together or separate. There are 8 colour combinations, and in each you get the jacket, tube top, and the 2 pieces together. I paired it with the coldLogic Mazza trousers for a delicious strawberry and chocolate combination.

I was very excited to find mesh jewellery at MMM! Maxi Gossamer has a line of inexpensive mesh jewellery. Buy the fatpacks of 4 colours for the best deal. I’m wearing the Pearl Daisy necklace in blood pearls (black and red). With this set you get a long/short necklace (shown), a short and a medium length necklace, and matching ring.

Look of the day: Mix and Match

Look of the day with a mix and match of some new (to me) and older things from my inventory. One great side benefit to blogging regularly is that it inspires me to make new poses. As a result I’m 4 poses into my next pose pack and I don’t even feel like I’ve been working!

Look of the Day: Uptown Girl

Just a quick look of the day featuring some more lovely mesh items. The Ava dress from Ingenue has a subtle tone-on-tone floral pattern on the bodice, and an unpatterned pencil skirt. Mesh details include the pencil skirt prim, soft peplum and short sleeves. The deep V neck is still tasteful while allowing you to display a favourite necklace.

The SLink Glitter Peeptoe shoes are also mesh, and with the included HUDs you can not only tint the feet, change the nail colour and resize, but also change the bow colour. I’m wearing the black, which are more of a charcoal due to the glitter, and they include a black bow as shown or a white / grey bow option.

I’m very excited to be back blogging, so many pretties! Happy Shopping!

Last Hair Fair Post for this year!

4 of my Hair Fair 2011 purchases! I’m running out of time, and so are you!  Run to Hair Fair 2011 before it ends today!

Here I’m showing Raspberry Aristocrat Khloe, Illusory’s Kimmi, and 2 from LeLutka, Knotted Hair and Shoop.

Khloe is kind of like Princess Leia hair, 2 side buns with a side part and all kinds of little wisps.
Kimmi is a cute little pigtails hair with a hud to change the colour of the streak and the bow.
Shoop is a full long hair with a centre part and hairband. My only complaint would be that the hairband is not colour change.
Knotted hair is a casual knotted updo, pulled straight back from the face and comes with a hair base to soften the edges. With lots of soft tendrils around the face so it’s not severe.

Go while you still can, and remember that all Hair Fair purchases donate a percentage to Wigs for kids!
