Syds

Bandana Day 2010
Tekeli-li

It really is quite amazing to see what everyone does with their bandana kit, it’s something I look forward to every year!! 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these one of a kind creations goes to Wigs For Kids, who sent a rep inworld the other day, to see just what it is we do here in SL :)

Bandana Day 2010
Flair

I love this pearl and lace concoction from Flair…I feel very vegas! Also, there’s just a few hours left to grab your copy of a limited edition pre release Sonja skin. There was some confusion yesterday, as I had called it makeup…not thinking that now with viewer 2, people sell makeups by themselves :P It’s a pack of skins, in all tones, with all brow, cleavage and hair base options at a bargain price. Grab yours before they disappear into my inv!!! Ash Out.

The Stringer Mausoleum @ Hair Fair 2010


.

SL is an amazing place, yes it frustrates us when the grid is broken, but without the grid, borked or working, we would lose this incredible medium of communication with each other. My luck in this virtual world is to be surrounded by some of the most creative, talented women on the grid. One such woman is Helena Stringer. If you look up the word scrappy in the SL dictionary, it has a picture of her demon self, no doubt petrifying a mere mortal :P This year, she has beaten the RL odds, and now..thank goodness has come back to us with an array of goodies to make us drool.

The Stringer Mausoleum @ Hair Fair 2010

Shown above is the fair exclusive hair Pearl Persuasion. Yup…I totally have a whole heap of pearls on my head…and don’t they look divine! You could soo do the modern Marie Antoinette, or take it in a completely different direction as I chose to.

The Stringer Mausoleum @ Hair Fair 2010

I have robots!!!! Teeny robots decorating my head…thanks to RoboBambie. The textures are absolutely amazing, I chose the pastel rainbows pack.

The Stringer Mausoleum @ Hair Fair 2010

Heres more of the same…sans robots. And to bring it full circle, that it’s not just about the hair….we hit the million linden mark sometime yesterday. I’m so proud of all the designers who gave their time this year, and my fellow committee members, you all rock! Ash Out.

The Strand @ Hair Fair 2010


.

One of the best things about Hair Fair, and indeed any large fashion event, is the treasures you find, that may be either new to you, or entirely new full stop. The Strand is one of those treasures.

Strand @ Hair Fair 2010
Blossom in Sandy Blonde

The designer has a small, but perfectly executed selection of styles. Blossom is the fashionista coiff. I chose to dress it down this time, but throw on a cocktail dress and some statement earrings and you’re good to go!

Strand @ Hair Fair 2010
Jackie in Sandy Blonde

Jackie is super cute, the braid as a headband is so adorable. The fringe is perfect, not too heavy and not too feathered.

Strand @ Hair Fair 2010
Sammie in Ash Blonde

And finishing with my absolute fave, Sammie. I absolutely love bakerboy hats, and this one has the perfect jaunt over one eye. You get a wide choice of fabrics and colours, so you’ll definitely find something for every outfit. Speaking of outfits, I bought this sweater probably a year ago…then promptly lost it. I only re-discovered it when doing a feverish inv clean before Hair Fair started. But everything old, is new to someone right! Ash Out.
