Hair Fair 2012 – Opens today!



I’m sure that you realize today begins a two week frenzy into the world of Second Life hair. I know people must save their lindens for months for this event. It’s win – win. You get fabulous new hair and the charity Wigs for Kids gets a percentage of the sales. The hair that I’m featuring in this post is from one of my personal favorite hair makers, Elikatira.

You can check the offical Hair Fair blog for a list of participants and Slurls here: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/ The event is four sims big so if you can’t get into one.. try another there is wonderful hair to be found on all sims. Now this is The 7th annual Hair Fair and it runs from July 14th – 29th.

So enjoy it, if you can’t get on now keep trying and remember to buy lots of hair, you have my permission as it is for a wonderful cause. http://www.wigsforkids.org/

Bleached @ Collabor88

This round of collabor88 makes me think of water, the ocean and of course the beach, all of which I love. Kyoot has this adorable dress that is part mesh and comes in nice beachy and feminine colors. Earthstones made shell and pearl earrings and Glam Affair made this lovely Roza skin.

Collabor88 is a virtual smorgasbord of wonder this month… there are SO many wonderful things.

I am also wearing new mesh hair from Dela. Shoes from N-Core and these poses are from Glitterati that come with the newest version of the Tillie Photo Hud and you will save yourself 200L if you get it at One Voice.

Dressed in One Voice

My post’s are a bit behind this week as I was in the hospital for a few days but if there is one event that needs to be checked out this week and it’s the only one that you can go to.. may I suggest One Voice. It amazes me that the community pulls together in such a beautiful way.

I was moved walking around this event that benefits Miss Gala Phoenix of Curio Skins to help pay for some of the substantial legal fees she is facing in defense of her work her in SL. The organizers who put this together also deserve a huge pat on the back for making this work so seamlessly in such a short time.

“This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.”

So if you think this doesn’t effect you chances are you are mistaken. Without innovative content creators in SL we would all be walking around looking like Ruth, I’d imagine anyhow. For more info see my post here: http://sylviaolivier.wordpress.com/

Oh? You wanna see the goods? Well everything I’m wearing is from One Voice. The hair from Exile. The dress from Geometry. The skin from Lara Hurley. The poses from the Tillie pose stand that is on sale for 400 lindens and it comes with poses from Diesel Works and Glitterati already loaded in it. The eyes are mesh eyes from Mayfly. My shoes are from NCore. All of this you can get here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Mesh/29/177/

There is a little bit of everything here for all tastes and budget and completely easy to throw a little support someones way that really deserves it.

One Voice – REPOST

one voice. July 9 – 15. fundraiser info.

Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight these baseless claims.

The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.

Some participants include Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more.

This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.

Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you’d like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!

New Slang

“Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only, i don’t know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet that i was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.”

“New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it’s right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head’s to the wall and i’m lonely.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the kind of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.”

What’s your digits? Take Two.

It’s interesting.. how much my look and shape and SL has changed in a year. Strawberry Singh has yet again posed the question: What are your digits? So here again I have disclosed mine and I can’t help but to laugh at my comparison from last year and how much my avatar has changed through the revolution of mesh.

Tada.. I think it’s terribly interesting. Check it out! DOOO IIIT!

Anyhow, I’m wearing lots of Zaara lingerie and jewelry. Slink Mesh Feet. Dela Mesh Hair and Glam Affair Leah Skin 01.

It’s friday, friday… fifty linden friday…

These shorts are mesh and cute an only 50 Lindens from Miel for Fifty Linden friday. These were my favorite this week you can pick between different colors and they have tons of options for what ever you wanna write on them

Join the Fifty Linden Friday group in world to see what stores are participating today.

Tokidoki

I guess I’ve been living under a rock as I did not realize Tokidoki has mesh now.. and wow it’s gorgeous. I love this sweater and pant combo. The bustier, while not mesh can also be found at Tokidoki as well.

Also, if you didn’t get the memo somehow.. Dela has been making mesh hair and its fantastic. So if you have been looking for a new mesh hair maker to browse, there you go. They have some awesome styles. I am also wearing some brand new mesh jewelry from Mandala, and I always love when Mandala has new releases. I spent way to much yesterday but I love what I came up with. Have a wonderful day!

A modern sort of princess..

I wont rave about how much I love the Fairy Tales 2012 event going on right now but lets just say you need to go there armed with a shopping list prepared to lose a ton of cash.

Like La Gyo.. how gorgeous is this head piece? Every piece of jewelry they have made for the event I bought up like hot cakes. Belleza has this skin that has the most gorgeous red lips and innocent blush – their version of Snow Whites skin is sensual and beautiful all at once. This top from Glam Affair shows one breast and the color almost matches my skin. If you are in the mood to enchant someone you have every advantage at your disposal.

“things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you’d take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you”
Tori Amos “A Sorta Fairytale”

The things that I did not get at this event are on my hands an neck.. and panties. Zaara makes some of the most classic and beautiful items fit for a princess. I can always find something at Zaara that I adore. This hair is from Lelutka and these poses are from Adorkable.

Like a summer breeze

Yesterday, one of my favorite stores – Leezu! released this gorgeous summery mesh top that is sheer in some areas. I love the back to this top an well just everything about it. The Souchi top is a wonderful addition to any sl wardrobe and lets just say I’m growing ever fond of transparent mesh.


I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka, that you must go and get now! New Lily v1. Skin from Belleza which is gorgeous and just boosts the overall quality of your avatar. The earrings are from La Gyo and you can get them at the Fairy Tales Event 2012. The jeans and flip flops previously blogged by me are from Maitreya.

Have a lovely sunday!
