My Hair Fair 2013 Top 5!

I was lucky enough to zip around the Hair Fair 2013 sims yesterday and picked up my top 5 favorite hair styles (from the stores that had set up early). Here is what I found…

HF2013 1

From L to R: LeLutka, ALVINA hair – Praline (Naturals pack) and Lamb, True Faith – Honeycomb Ombre (Ombre & Root pack).

HF2013 3

From L to R: ARGRACE, Baseball cap2/Isabella – Almond (Light Browns pack) and Auxiliary, Hair_CutiePie – Ginger (Variety Pack).

Even if you don’t like these particular styles, you’ll be sure to find some that you do, and with a percentage of every sale going to the charity, Wigs for Kids, why wouldn’t you want to?

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.

Hair Fair 2013 - Photo Contest

The Hair Fair is sneaking up on us all quickly, and the Hair Fair Photo Contest is already open! Here’s the rules for the contest:

Examples : Sci-fi, Black & White, Romantic Comedy, Anime, Horror, Country & Western, Thriller, Action, Drama

*No Nudity or sexually suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children, naked/revealing pictures and pictures that the committee deem inappropriate will not be accepted, the committee’s say on this is final.

Be creative, but remember we are looking for pictures that focus on the hair and you. PHOTOS SUBMITTED TO THIS POOL MUST HAVE BEEN UPLOADED SINCE THE START OF THE CONTEST, PHOTOS OLDER THAN THE START WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, we want fresh focus and definite passion for this event, and this event only.

2. Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing program of choice. We don’t want to see vendor images here or store logos in the background for example. 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.

3. Keep your photos in Second Life size format. Second Life will distort your images when uploaded into SL, and we do not want to have your images look all out of focus in the winners circle if picked.

Sizes options:

* 512 x 512
* 1024 x 1024
* 2048 x 2048
* 512 x 1024

You must have full ownership rights to the photo you are entering. If it was taken by someone else, then you must be allowed to use it in this manner. Check with the photographer before entering because any disputes of ownership of a photo will result in disqualification.

5. Entrants are limited to a total of 8 entries. Enter only your very best photos, as swapping out will not be allowed. We will be keeping track of who enters what, and swapping out your photos after submission will result in your disqualification. We want to make it fair to everyone.
