Exile in Hair Fair 2015

Kavar Cleanslate has been doing Hair Fair since I remember, and it’s everyone’s first stop to see what Kavar has made. This year he made two men’s hairs and three women’s which I show here. And once again Kavar brings his best game to the Hair Fair, benefitting Wigs for Kids.  He made a variety of looks for ladies, including a long lush hair, very typical of the full long hair he excels in. I love how he piled on loose tendrils on top of the look as well. I also loved the tendrils hanging down from the updo for the fair and around the face for the ponytail. Face-framing and fabulous, his hair hopefully will generate a lot of donations.

Shiny Shabby is opening today with a theme of “country dacha.” Neva Crystall, one of the organizers of the event, comse from Russia and prompted the designers to work with that theme. A dacha, for anyone not familiar, is a country home in Russia where people go to retreat from the city. The biggest feature at most is a garden, sometimes for pleasure, often for food growing. Monicuzza Babenco made this skin for LeLutka heads which has a tinge of Russian glamour in its makeups and lipsticks. Aaliyah Alter made a loose top and jeans for the event for casual days at the dacha.

Yet more hair!

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

One of the reasons I look forward to Hair Fair every year is because I get to see work by creators I don’t always encounter in my regular SL. Some are doing other things like clothing or jewelry or skins normally and make hair mostly for Hair Fair because hair is not their primary creation.

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

Carina Larsen is one of those. While she does hair, she also does a bunch of other great content, so hair is simply not her main line, but gosh, when she does hair, she does it beautifully. She is donating a portion of sales from FIVE hairs at Hair Fair this year and each one of them is gorgeous. With two updos, two ponytails (one that is an add on for a hairbase) and one sexy long hair, you are bound to find something (or some things) that will make you happy. She includes a great texture change HUD with some fabulous textures. And her styles are classics—wearable, usable and lovely.

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

Carina’s lovely styles combine perfectly with Nena Janus’ sublime applier for the LeLutka heads. It’s not a shape Nena has employed before (wider set eyes, poutier lips) but she was up to the task of making them look fabulous with her great skins.

My lingerie, which you can see very little of, is a new little set from Mariska Simons, which includes appliers for every meh body you can think of and variations of the bra/panties/garters/stockings combo.

Hair, hair, everywhere!

You would think I would run out of hair, but no, there is so much great hair from Hair Fair, it’s everywhere! MissAllSunday Lemon has contributed four darling looks with a portion of the sales kicking back to Wigs for Kids.

Wasabi Pills at Hair Fair 2015

MissAllSunday Lemon brought her top game to Hair Fair this year with four very different styles, making sure that a whole variety of hair style needs has been addressed, including a cute style that includes a great texture-change HUD for the headband. She even made darling ponytails!

Wasabi Pills at Hair Fair 2015

You get a peek of the beautiful print on a dress from bodytothestars that he has at Season’s Story. Love the print and the style. I matched one of Monicuzza Babenco’s wood bead necklaces from Oh My Gacha to the outfit. My favorite part of the whole look is, however, Steffi Villota’s gorgeous new skin on a LeLutka mesh head. I spent a lot of time trying on her appliers, which are all lovely and quite different from skin to skin in features (besides the skin tones), and I fell in love with this one and its sprinkling of freckles over the nose, even in the lips. She includes several lovely lipsticks and sexy eyeliners. The combo of this skin on this head is delectable.

Yay! It’s that time of the year again and you betcha, we have some HAIR for you! So for the next two weeks I will be showing hair I found at the Hair Fair and giving you a delicious look at all that is available and maybe spur you to get over there to SPEND MONEY to help WIGS FOR KIDS.

Hair Fair 2015 Join Us Poster

The fair opens on July 11 at midnight or thereabouts (SLT) and closes July 26. Every single purchase you make donates at least a portion to Wigs for Kids, which makes wigs for kids who lose their hair due to medical conditions. It’s that simple. Each hair replacement system is quite costly as it is custom and is donated to the recipient. So each little sale you make adds up to one more step towards a wig for a kid.

On July 26, they will have the traditional Bandana Day, where they remove hair and wear bandanas. On each sim in several spots are donated bandanas for purchase with 100% of the proceeds going to Wigs for Kids. The bandanas are transfer so get some for your friends because after the fair is over, they are gone! I have seen some amazing bandanas made for this, so I highly recommend you check out the bandana stores.

My first set of photos is from Shylah Honey and TOmmy Fairplay at Damselfly. Shylah and Tommy have been making content in SL since 2004 (!) and do custom mesh hair with a great set of textures, all on texture-change HUDs. I know for a fact they have worked their butts off getting these hairs done and a portion of the sale price goes to Wigs for Kids. Shylah cooked up some gorgeous looks for this fair! Tommy has two terrific men’s hairs up as well.

Damselfly at Hair Fair 2015

I wear the hair with a lovely dress from Miffyhoi Rosca, available at Shiny Shabby, which is going into its last week for this round. My face applier is one of Nena Janus’ new sets for the LeLutka head, which includes several gorgeous makeups on Nena’s beautiful skin. And my choker is SigiFaust’s open collar-compatible choker for ROMP.

~ “Linda Lu” by Ray Sharpe

Linda Lu

I made up Linda Lu in a chic look today starting with a bold graphic dress from Ashleey Andrew that she is featuring at IDK. With great sequined textures, Ashleey has created a dress that is perfect for clubbing all night. I paired it up with sexy shoes from Davidefre, who has named them “Harper,” so I had to get them at Uber. He is now making his shoes fit Slink and Maitreya feet, which is a great step forward (no pun intended). My earrings are from Maxi Gossamer’s boho set for Uber.

Linda Lu

Now I had a fun time with the LeLutka appliers this time. First I used Umazuma Metaluna’s awesome new applier for the upcoming Sou by creation.jp event to make Linda look uniquely beautiful. Then I put on Monicuzza Babenco’s awesome make-up set for Fantasy Collective to choose a different look for my eye makeup. Just like system faces, you can layer effects from different creators to make a very specific look, which cuts down on that “Stepford Wives” effect that people fear with mesh heads. My wind-tossed wavy hair with blue highlights is one of Bubbles Clawtooth’s exclusives at Summerfest.

A La Calma Verde

A La Calma Verde

“Al fin, podrás ver esos ojos de mar que fluyen, se hacen espuma, vuelven a la calma verde, vuelven a inflamarse como una ola: tu los ves y te repites que no es cierto, que son unos ojos hermosos verdes idénticos a todos los hermosos ojos verdes que has conocido o podrás conocer.” ~ Carlos Fuentes

A La Calme Verde

The calm green is the essence of mid-summer and the hue of this gorgeous dress from Aikea Reiko. Aikea has mastered the art of texture and color with her sexy fantasy looks and this is no exception with swirls and paisleys reaching up from the hem of the dress. Beautifully draped I front, the dress has a plunging back, cleverly held up by a cord around the waist. (Thank you for not showing plumber butt—I am kind of over that look.) I accessorized simply with a choker from Kathya Szczepanski, available at Shiny Shabby, and a back tattoo from Amber Swallowtail (which was about the tenth tattoo I tried on).

A La Calme Verde

I had to wear Monicuzza Babenco’s applier for the LeLutka heads again. She has made this set for Shiny Shabby and I love the variations. I wore the same applier a couple days ago with a different LeLutka head and got a different look. I heard that people fear looking like “Stepford Wives” wearing a mesh head and yes, while it is noticeable that you have a mesh head on to many, not everyone looks the same. My beautiful red hair is one of Kuranosuke Kamachi’s exclusive looks for Summertime. I love this elegant, effortless look.

~ “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond

Sweet Caroline

Sweet Caroline is feeling free and easy with this pretty long shirt from Miffyhoi Rosca, which she is featuring at Shiny Shabby this round. Made from fitted mesh, it fit over my Maitreya body pretty darn well and came in several lovely colors. I matched it up with the gorgeous found-object necklace from AvaGardner Kungler that she is offering at the Cosmopolitan Room and darling t-strap pumps from JourdanMcMillan, also available at Shiny Shabby.

Sweet Caroline

My messy braids are the beautiful creation of Mina Nakamura for Kustom9 and have lovely face-framing, growing-out bangs with a gorgeous texture (which looks like our Caroline is growing out some dark ends). I popped the color of the necklace in my eyes with peepers from Soleil Reid. And Ensorcelante has made a custom set of skins for Shiny Shabby which include a pretty spectacular set of appliers-in-one HUD with mesh faces (Slink, LeLutka, Genesis, andTMP)  and then bodies (Belleza, Maitreya, Banned, Lena, and Slink).

“Fashion has a right to exist, because it permits the people to define themselves over and over again.” ~ Ann Demeulemeester

Over and Over

This month’s Shiny Shabby opened with a bang, and no wonder, since the fashions are inspired, in part, by Ann Demeulemeester (which explains all the bold shapes and dark colors). There quite a few good picks, so this month of blogging is going to be very pleasurable. First is this asymmetrical dress from Kiddo Oh, available in three colors and very much Demeulemeester-ish. Add Senzati0n Domenitzo’s amazing ankle-wrapped heels and wire and glass rings from Sigifaust, and you have a designer look for your travels about SL. (See at the bottom where I took this look dancing at the DJ Stage at SL12B.) I have set the stage with décor from Imokon Neox, also available at Shiny Shabby. Fashionable poses from Katya Valeska can be found there too.

Over and Over

Monicuzza Babenco has once again created an applier for the LeLutka mesh head that does a beautiful job of embellishing the features of the face in the best light. I loved the choices of lipstick and the artistic eye makeups available with the applier and will certainly be using this photogenic fashion set over and over. My easy-going, lush hair comes courtesy of Kuranosuke Kamachi, with a great color palette available. Both are also available at Shiny Shabby.

Grab the keys and let’s go for a ride

The theme for SL12B this year is “What Dreams May Come” and having a backstage pass gives me a lot of insight into people’s dreams. I toodled around the sims on a motorcycle by NiR McBride that I got The Men’s Dept after I finished my own exhibit and enjoyed the views that are developing. Of course, nothing is completed, so I was careful to skirt around and not show anything that isn’t already kinda public, like the awesome Auditorium.

I put on an easy look—the new outfit Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus have released at their store, a set of their best pieces in black—jacket, jeans and boots plus a tank add-on that includes a HUD with several texture choices. This is a great entry level into their stuff and lets you test out the fit for yourself. (And the fit over my Maitreya body is fantastic).

Drive

Shylah Honey’s newest hair for On9 was my go-to look for this adventure with the wild wavy locks pulled to the side. I have put Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous skin applier on the Lotte head from Jadenarts. She is selling this set at the Chapter Four and I have to say, it’s sublime. The freckled version is gorgeous.Sunglasses from Glamistry with his great texture-change HUD keep the glow out. (“Future’s so bright I gotta wear shades…”)

Whatever Is Whatever

Whatever Is Whatever

Thank you, Breezy Luik, for the title! Quite apropos!

Whatever Is Whatever

It’s one of those weeks. Dashing back and forth, here and there. Half the time I don’t know if I am coming or going. The darling little bicycle carts Trace Osterham made for Arcade are a perfect metaphor for what’s going on with me. One way, Italian ice; the other, cotton candy. Wear it and ride off!

What else do you expect at the beginning of the summer? Flowers need to be planted (the windowboxes are in, by the way), all the classes have to be scheduled, a quick family trip planned, and SL12B is about to open! It’s easy to get around when you’re wearing something cute like this dress from Novery Lorakeet that she has at Shiny Shabby. With Bax Coen’s great little booties, now released in neutrals, it’s a lovely look, especially accessorized with Grazioso Alekseev’s gorgeous glasses (all prims—omg!) and one of Monica Outlander’s hair accessories for the Arcade.

Whatever Is Whatever

I am wearing one of the LeLutka mesh heads with an applier from Sawsan Secretspy, who has seen fit to bring her artistry to the various faces of LeLutka. With a great hud that offers several eye makeup and lipstick options, the head works perfectly with Sawsan’s skin for the Maitreya body. A cute easy little ponytail from Ikira Frimon for Shiny Shabby and I am ready to go!
