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.

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.

fields of pink2

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!

One Shot: Spring Fling

spring fling

I was going to originally call this post something else, but I’ve been only in the mood to do quick shots lately, so here is a one-shot look at today’s outfit. I don’t often wear greens, so I decided to depart from my normal choice of pinks and purples, to show another side of me in aqua and chartreuse. The weather hasn’t been so great, so my windlight settings for today’s photo also reflects that.

I decided to use my mesh breasts again, so we have another boob-friendly outfit from DCNY which is specially available at Bewbapalooza! You can wear the dress with or without the sheer black shrug; and with or without mesh breasts. You also have the option of a prim or mesh skirt panel. There are nine colors available, and each one will set you back only L$ 135! This is a limited time event, so you’ll want to hurry over and grab one now.

Chevron Way

A little while ago my alt got herself some mesh breasts, and when I saw the Belted Chevron dress from DCNY, I splurged and bought myself a pair. So here we go, my first post using mesh breasts! They take some adjusting, but I’ll be using them more as the weather gets warmer and I want to show some more skin. This dress comes in a variety of colors, with 2 belt options (black or brown), and then a belt-less version like I am wearing. You can get it right now at My Attic, which only runs for a short while longer.

A Casual Easter

easter1

I got some new items from E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories today, and one of them was a cute new tank top with an Easter bunny. Since it’s just a couple days away I put together a casual version of an Easter outfit using it as the base. It’s the current VIP group gift, if you’re not a member of the store’s group, there is a group join board next to the gift. There is a L$ 400 join fee, but you get a gift every month so it’s totally worth it. I decided to also wear their new Kallie Pants in Navy, which has a subtle leather texture. The pants come in 10 colors so there’s plenty to chose from.

easter2

I added the Video Games hair by Truth to top it off, since it comes with a flower headband that reminds me of the headbands that little girls tend to wear with their Easter dresses. For L$ 100 you can take your chance at The Arcade and get a random color from the gacha machine. The headband is separate from the hair so you can wear it with other hair.

That’s all from me for today, Happy Easter everyone!

The Nea Me

The Skin Fair 2013 is opening on March 15, 2013 and I was so excited to get in early! Snow Rabbit has this brand new item out called Nea, which is a hybrid mesh avatar, meaning the head is a mesh item and then the skin and shape are worn as usual. I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it, the sweet face looked down on me and I was in love.

nea1

There are 5 tones available separately or as a fat pack, they are: Milky White, Natural Beige (shown above)…

nea2

And Natural White, Dark Beige, and Bronze (shown above).

You are able to chose several types of eye make-up, lip tint, eyelashes, and blush by using a fairly simple HUD. In addition, you are able to wear your own eyes or mesh eyes that are included and worn separately, there is a HUD to control eye color and one for tears. The ears are another attachment so that you can remove them if your hairstyle covers the ears. There is a link to a manual on the Snow Rabbit Support blog, so you can thoroughly learn what each button does. You also can set if you blink, mouth opens, or does nothing. I think it’s a really fun way to have a make-over, while still remaining true to my sense of style because the face of Nea is just so darn CUTE! I tried to show a bit of what you can do with the head in the pictures. Each skin-tone has 2 versions – one has a more push-up cleavage, I wore both in the pictures so that you could see the difference…oh, and there is a shape included too, but it worked nicely with my normal shape.. Hopefully by now you are chomping at the bit to get your hands on this hybrid avatar, but here’s a bit more info.

Kawaii Cutie

Kawaii Cutie

Today’s outfit uses items from 2 events, so you’ll want to make sure you stop by and visit both of them! My hair is out at Collabor88 by D!va and it comes with 2 versions, and the ability to change the colors of the accessories as well as turn them off completely. I also got my new cute skirt recently, it’s from The Sea Hole’s gacha machine at The Arcade. It’s got a cute little kawaii happy poo on it, and well…this could be the first and last time I wear poo.

All of the dresses are only L$ 95 each for the duration of the event so stop by and check them all out.
