Hair Fair 2013: Bandana Day Kits Available Now!

bandana

Every year, as a part of Hair Fair, there is a day where we shed our hair and wear bandanas in support of those who have lost their hair due to illness or treatments – this year it’s July 28, 2013. Anyone can make a bandana and have it put up for sale along with those done by designers! The kits are provided for free, and each bandana is sold for L$ 50 (with transfer permissions, so you can gift them). This year the base bandanas are mesh and were created by Mel Vanbeeck with easy retexturing in mind – the UV’s were made with a square in mind. If you’d like a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough in-world.

Please note: since these bandanas will be set for sale, you need to have full perm items for decorating, as they cannot be sold otherwise. Completed bandanas need to be sent to CharitySasy String by July 3, 2013 so that they have plenty of time to be bought.

Any questions about the kits, bandanas, or Bandana Day can be directed to Sasy Scarborough or Whimsy Winx.

Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love.Also be aware that we wont be judging your photos on how little or much you know of PS or GIMP, rather the feel of the picture and the capture itself.That being said, please do not “over process”, we want to be able see the hair! – if you must put your name on your images please be sure to make it small and discreet in the bottom left or right of the photo…anything business focused will not be accepted, names of avatar only.

Fields of Pink

fields of pink1

Hi everyone! I’ve been meaning to post for a little bit, but finally took some pics yesterday night so I could get this outfit out to you. It all started with this 2 piece dress from DCNY at the Gemini round of Zodiac. The tops and bottoms can be inter-changed if you buy more than one color, and of course you can wear them separately. The top would look cute with some denim shorts, and you could pair the skirt with a soft blouse.

I’m also wearing the adorable Darla Headband from Noodles which was a Fifty Linden Fridays item. However, you don’t have to miss out, you can still get it (or 5 other color versions) in the store for a little bit more. Don’t I look precious in it? I’m not taking it off, no way, no how!
