Hair Care

Hair Fair 2013 Is not just about hair but also about care. The care comes in the form of the donations being given to Wigs for Kids. Last year almost $11,000 was given to Wigs for Kids from the donations gathered by the sale of hair and bandanas. So it’s not the typical hair care. It’s hair CARE.

Mina Nakamura has been joining in this care for the past few years with Hair Fair and once again she is donating a portion of the proceeds from her hair to Wigs for Kids. Mina is one of the first who used a HUD to color her hair, and she includes this HUD with her latest styles.

Laissez Hair

I have been wandering around bald for the past few days, waiting for the onslaught of hair that will come with the Hair Fair.

Let me just show a sneak peek of the entry way at Hair Fair 1 sim (photo taken while I am half asleep). They have clearly built for low graphics lag and high entertainment:

Hair Fair 2013

The first set of hair I want to show is from Mirja Mills, who says this fair is personally important to her.

Laissez Hair

Start with Mirja’s punk offering, a unisex style with varying hair base tattoos. Get fierce with Sidney!

Peeking out from beneath a broad brimmed hat

Peeking out from under a broad brimmed hat

“Summertime is always the best of what might be.” ~ Charles Bowden

Peeking out from under a broad brimmed hat

Peeking out from beneath a straw hat is always a different experience. It’s like you are in your own personal room, sheltered from the sun, viewing things from beneath a protective canopy. And dang hasn’t it been hot? That is why this tropical sundress from melissa46 is so perfect—stylish and cool, its simple mesh shape has the best texture for keeping cool. I really love how she placed this abstract look on this dress.

Peeking out from under a broad brimmed hat

My hair is one of Kavar Cleanslate’s offerings for the Hair Fair, and gosh, I love these swept aside bangs. The style is ideal for being under a straw hat like this. I love my pale skin from Aida Ewing, an inexpensive offering at Collabor88 and a great way to grab this premier skin maker’s work at a below-value price.

What French Women Know

“One is not born a woman; one becomes one.” ~ Simone de Beauvoir

What French Women Know

Pixivor Allen’s work is imbued with a sort of French female sensibility. It’s hard to explain but her fashions are feminine, easy, beautiful, light, dignified, and pragmatic all at once. These are not the clothes for Lady Gaga—they are the garments for Catherine Deneuve. Take, for instance, this dress that pixivor debuted at Modavia Fashion Week. Not only does she use the beautiful abstract rose motif throughout the dress (black and gray on cream), she pays attention to the details of the textures. The edges of the translucent skirt are trimmed with a black ribbon and the system piece has lace along the decolletage.

What French Women Know

She further makes this dress a wonderful piece by offering a jacket that includes an optional skirt. So in the top photo you see the dress as it is, above you see the dress with the jacket with optional skirt and below you see the outfit without the skirt. The jacket is an amazing piece of work with translucent materials and sculpty sleeves that gracefully balloon to the elbow. I can just feel the lightness of this beautiful fabric. Finally, she offers the shoes with the dress. While they aren’t magnificent, they are definitely wearable and a great look with the outfit.

What French Women Know

I show it with the free skin LeLutka is offering at the Modavia Fashion Week. And I have donned hair from momo Foulon, offered at the Hair Fair. I like momo’s hair a lot. She offers styles not often seen—cute short haircuts, updos, and longer. A lot of them seem heavily influenced by East Asian styles. (Yes, I am still watching stuff on crunchyroll.com). This updo was ideal for this look.

Let It Be Me

“If it’s a friend you need
Let it be me…”
~ Ray LaMontagne

I took a trip down to Tampa this weekend to visit my dear friend Raven Pennyfeather (yes, like in Real Life!) and I had the opportunity to meet the wonderful folks who have run the RFL Clothing Fair, Nevar Lobo and Amethyst Starosin (and it will have a different name this year—more coming soon). I also got to meet Cashel Rang and my dear friend SC Tracy (in the flesh)! It was hotter’n heck down there for me. I got home, and it seemed arctic in comparison. A cold front came through and gobsmacked me. I had to wear SOCKS! Then the winds cracked a huge branch off my favorite crab tree. (I have been moping all week.)

Fall in the Air

I also had to put on a sweater. This outfit reminds me of the whole ordeal. I start with a new jacket from LeeZu Baxter, the queen of texturing over sculpties and the goddess of building a terrific fashionable silhouette with them. Again, we see LeeZu’s complex but fashion-forward color ways and textures playing themselves out in this jacket. What is most impressive is the multiple prim sleeve she has made that articulates with the movement of the arm without showing gaps. The line of the sleeve moves directly into the collar in one seamless line. Excellent work!

Fall in the Air

The skin is a new one from Julliette Westerburg, part of the Designers United offerings and delicate with its gentle blush, porcelain skin and glossy neutral lips. Julliette’s style is definitely more illustrative than photo-real. You can see her strokes in the eyebrows and lips. It’s a unique look, reminiscent of colorized illustrations from the 50s. The pop of green on the eyelids is a last summer hurrah before the leaves turn red and orange.

Fall in the Air

Finally these lovely pastiche boots from LeeZu, illustrative of her texturing prowess AND building skill. I zoomed in very close on these boots and nary a flaw did I find. Every piece is in place and they fit perfectly (though the brand on the sole suggests they are “flexible size”). I suggest you get a pair just so you can gaze at their exquisite and detailed construction, from the stitching along the cuffs and along the sole to the buckles on the front and back to the pretty string tie holding them closed. You want to see art in SL? Look no further than my feet!

Welcome Back!

Friends are sneaking back into SL in unprecedented numbers. Back from holiday, back to school, back to create, back to socialize, everyone’s starting to hunker down for the fall into the winter. This evening I spent the evening shopping for AOs with a dear old friend while hearing from another who has just moved across country and is finally settled enough to be back in world.

Welcome Back!

My friend asked me to take her shopping and I said, well you know, a lot of the same creators are still in world and doing great work. Take for instance, these jeans, by Gin Galtier. We know her creator has been in world for a good amount of time, making funky fun clothes for avatars. I really like the texture of these jeans with their dark denim look at floor-dragging boot cut bottoms.

The top is from Eclectic Wingtips, a designer who has been doing her work for a relatively short time, and I see clear improvement whenever I see her new creations. I really like this wrap top, which comes in a variety of combos at a price that’s nice for separates.

The shoes are the creation of another veteran—Nardya Rousselot. She has made some of the prettiest toes in the metaverse, plump pretty little piggies that are so finely detailed you can see the wrinkles on the skin (yes I cammed that close).

Welcome Back!

Wanna talk about some oldies but goodies? Let’s talk about Gala Phoenix and Calico Ingmann. First, let me talk about Gala, who has been making skins for avatars since before my first pixels rezzed and doing it quietly and successfully for years. I see her skins all over with their bee stung lips, translucent skin (look closely and you can see the veins under the skin), and beautifully made up eyes. Even the ear lobes have holes for the earrings!

Calico Ingmann is another who has been around since before I was a twinkle in Ruth’s eye. This style, featured at this year’s Hair Fair, is a great updo with a casual bang framing the face, which makes it versatile for both casual, as I show, it, and more formal. Her textures are great, with gentle highlights running through.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back, dear friends. I was waiting for you to come home… :)

A Visit to Jingu Bashi

Every Sunday, young people in Tokyo gather in the Harajuku district to shop and show off their fashions. The most popular place to gather is Jingu Bashi, a pedestrian bridge. What I find interesting is that these young people “express” themselves in a culture that is well-known for their conformism and a country that has suffered from a long-standing recession. Harajuku is so like some parts of SL in some ways I am blown away.

A Visit to Jingu Bridge

First, the culture of Harajuku is so keenly like SL culture, it’s amazing. (Check this nice little ethnography by Chris Perry.) It’s primarily social and consumerist, centered on gathering in small groups to chat, take photos, go shopping, and show off fashion with the secondary aims of enjoying music and other activities. (And the participants use aliases instead of their real names.. hmmm….)  Second, it takes place in a country that has suffered a long recession but is, by all measures, pretty well-off in the greater scheme of things (just as we are in the US and Europe). Young people can still afford such consumerist pleasures as we are afforded in SL.

My brief academic bit over, I want to show my little Harajuku outfit today. Wearing a dress from Emedea Morgenstern, who primarily has a shop for neko and steampunk. It’s mainly photosourced but well done with a flirty plaid skirt layered over lace. The outfit includes the cute little glasses.

A Visit to Jingu Bridge

The skin is from milok Hermit. I felt I needed a more Harajuku-ey skin (ie, not so sexy as much as doll-like) so a trip to Mother Goose was in hand. The pale skin, bright cartoonish blush, and stained lips is defintely a more East Asian aesthetic for skins, I think.

I topped it with hair from Toast Bard, who has several nice pieces at the Hair Fair. I think Toast is an unsung hero of interesting styles, to be honest. I really like what I am seeing coming from his store, from vintage to almost manga like this hair.

The boots are my twist on the Lolita look (to match the “naughty” stockings in the outfit). What else would push this outfit from cutesy to cutting edge faster than boots made in tribute to Alexander McQueen, as made by Meg Demina?

This is Not a Love Song

A cute dress, sexy hair, ribbon sandals, a knowing smile… it’s a pop song in the making.

This is Not a Love Song

This dress is one of Marie Lauridsen’s offerings at Designers United 4. In the past I have been a little skeptical of Marie’s supposed greatness as a designer. Her ubiquitous presence in so many special sales seemed overkill. This dress has made me feel differently, however. Her use of this print texture over the sculpty prims makes a darling little dress that passes my dance test (it doesn’t fall apart when I dance when I remove the optional straps) and uses sculpties ingeniously. The skirt, while static in a sense, suggests movement with the shadows in the pleats. The top, with the optional strap slipping down the shoulder, is also made of a sculpty. I was disappointed it had a resize script simply because it rendered it no mod and when I resized it to not bleed through, the shape was a little bulky on me. However it’s a small issue in the bigger scheme of things.

This is Not a Love Song

My glowing skin from Mallory Cowen (the Julie line made for redheads) compliments this hair from Asuka Martin. Her ingenious hud, which allows you to color the hair a select number of shades makes this hair easy on my inventory (I only need one) and easy on the sim load (the scripts are very low). I love the sexy coyness of the style and how she has managed to put fine wisps of hair at the crown of the head and all over, as real hair would have it.

This is Not a Love Song

These little prim toe shoes deserve special mention. Goran Osterham has made a cute sandal with ribbon straps. The ribbons, metal, and toenails can all be set to a color off his list, which drills down past shades to qualities of those shades. There are hundreds of potential colors and combinations available. While the toes are not as pretty and the design as sophisticated as those of creators like Maitreya or Nardcotix, they are good enough if you aren’t looking very closely (which most aren’t).

Customer: Waiter, there’s a hair in my soup!
Waiter: Shhhh.. not so loud or everyone’s gonna want rabbit stew!

Harper’s 10+ Tips for a happier Hair Fair (fight the lag!):

1. Remove all scripts (including AOs). (Result: reduces sim lag.)

2. Fly between tents so no one notices your waddle. (No one’s looking at you anyway.) (Result: reduces personal embarrassment and paranoia and gets you around faster.)

3. Wear system clothes only. (No you don’t have to be naked or looking like a freak.) (Result: reduces arc and ergo, client side lag.)

4. Barefoot is in these days–no shoes or prim feet ;) (Result: reduces arc/client side lag.)

5. Wear a skin with a hairbase and skip prim hair. (You won’t look bald.) (Result: reduces arc/client side lag.)

6. Get a bandanna and look stylin and Hair Fair fashionable. (Result: reduces arc/client side lag, makes you look fashionable, AND helps Wigs for Kids.)

7. Do not try on demos AT Hair Fair. Grab everything that intrigues you and take it home for trying on. You’ll just be frustrated standing around trying them on and waiting for them to rez. Besides, someone else is trying to get into the sim! Better yet, join the Hair Fair DEMO group and get all the demos from notices and try them on before you even go. (Result: reduces client side lag, potentially sim lag, and your frustration.)

8. Realize that they built the Hair Fair sims in tents (you’ll see what I mean when you get there) to decrease your exposure to new textures in your distant view. Walk through walls to get around–most are phantom–if you get lost or frustrated. (Result: reduces client-side lag.)

9. WAIT a few days and go later and enjoy leisurely, less-lag shopping. You’re not gonna die because you aren’t wearing that brand new hair from Maddox DuPont just yet. Believe me. (It’s open from September 4-19!) (Result: reduces sim lag.)

10. Do not lecture others on their arc, scripts, demoing habits, etc. Mind your own business and don’t be a drama queen. Besides, running that arc indicator thing increases YOUR personal lag. (Result: reduces your personal tension and adds to your and other’s personal shopping pleasure time.)

11. Read my blog starting Tuesday, August 7, when I will start previewing my favorite pieces. (Result: reduces personal shopping frustration and makes you look super fly!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who said you can’t find decent hair in SL? The Hair Fair for 2010, which opens today, will prove anyone wrong. For once virtual hair will do more than just cover our virtual heads–it will support the creation of hair pieces for real children. All donations from the Hair Fair will be given to Wigs for Kids, a non-profit organization that provides wigs for children who have lost hair due to illness.

As part of the Hair Fair, the organizers asked creators and bloggers to make bandannas which can be worn throughout the fair to decrease arc. Proceeds from the sales of these bandannas will benefit Wigs for Kids. I have created two bandannas to be sold at the fair in the hopes that my small effort will help one child feel more comfortable after going through probably already traumatic illness. Please buy one! :D

The textures are completely mine (though I am hopeless with graphics programs); the sculpty was made by Damien Fate. It includes my personal stamp of approval ;)

Please feel moved to donate a small amount more by purchasing hair at this year’s Hair Fair from sponsored vendors or by donating directly. The creators participating have donated a considerable amount of this time for this cause and while they want you to purchase their creations, they also want you to donate generously as they have.

Bandannas: Hair Bandana–Harper Beresford–Men’s and Hair Bandana–Harper Beresford–Women’s, available exclusively at the Hair Fair in various locations on each of the four sims. TP here to get started: Hair Fair
