Joining the Hair Fair Demo Group Will Make You a Happy Shopper

Hair Fair 2017

The biggest hair even of the year starts this Saturday when the gates open for Hair Fair 2017.

Demos will be sent out in the Demo group on the Friday, June 30th. You will be able to try all the Hair Fair styles before the event opens, so that you do not have to deal with lag of trying styles on at the event.

Demo Parties have become a Hair Fair tradition. Gather your friends, grab the demos, and try them on in sync. One, two, three…Demo!!! There’s even a drinking game, first to rez, passes out a cocktail to everyone else…but make sure it’s a virtual cocktail so you don’t pass out before you’ve tried on everything.

How do you join the group? Copy and paste the the following into local chat in Second Life and join the Hair Fair DEMO Group: second life:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about

his is a FREE group. Here’s the thing to know about Hair Fair, there is not one single group of any kind that costs you to join.  They send notices in the Hair Fair DEMO Group and the Subscribomatic owned by HairFairSL Core or Sasy Scarborough ONLY.

Okay, for the not so fun stuff. Because Hair Fair is such a successful event, some people try to take advantage by pretending to be part of Hair Fair, creating pseudo groups they charge to join. They are scams.  If someone invites you to join a group with Hair Fair in the name that is not free, it is a scam. There are no gift cards, reduced prices cards, or anything that suggests some kind of deal at the event. If you are sent any such item, decline and abuse report. 

See you on Saturday and onwards at Hair Fair 2017 where all purchases will donate a percentage to Wigs for Kids.

Eponymous Me & Cockfosters

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

So, I was considering what to wear on this subway. I really didn’t want anything ridiculous revealing. Something I would hope not be accosted in is what I was thinking. I remembered this gorgeous dress Cecelia Petion had posted on Plurk, so I unpacked the Poppy blogger box for June and saw the box inside had a dress named Cajsa. OMG! What could this be? Then when I unpacked it, it was the dress I remembered from Plurk…I just about did handstands. I would have if I had an animation handy. This struck me as the apotheosis of Second Life serendipity. They way things just fall into place.

Here and Gone

Here and Gone

I am usually ambivalent about jumpsuits. In my first life, I think they are annoying. They are not particularly flattering and seriously, who wants to almost completely undress every time they go to the restroom? But we don’t pee in SL, so bodysuits are not so ridiculous here.

And when the body suit is this beautifully architectural, then all of a sudden I am down with bodysuits.

Like Natalie

My mother would always say “They say Elizabeth Taylor is the most beautiful woman in the world, but she isn’t. it’s Natalie Wood.” She was timeless and elegant, and I was excited to see that one of SL’s most classic skin makers, Adam N Eve, had made a new skin for Vintage Fair in the spirit of her style.

If you’re newer to SL you might not be familiar with the brand, but I can promise it’s one you need to know. Classic styles and fashion, and very unique and beautiful skins to make your look more personal are what you’ll find there. I’m such a fangirl, I risk sounding ridiculous. Continue reading

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches Narcissi has released a perfect summer outfit at Vintage Fair. These shorts and tops come in two sets, pastels and brights. The pastel shorts set also has several gorgeous prints, fun vintage prints.

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches I took to the trees because I was doing a book review of a book called The Solace of Trees that I reviewed on my book blog and on YouTube. It’s about refugees and it is timely, important, and not terribly well done.  Continue reading

The Things You Forget

It’s funny what you forget, and what you remember, over ten years time. Asked recently to recollect my days in SL, the arc of my existence in pixel space, and the story flowed.  But what struck me wasn’t the fails, the losses, the friends who turned out to be flakes and went their way.

No, it was the constancy of the right people – when you are lucky enough to meet them. Continue reading

The Age of Myth

The Age of MythWhile I don’t role play it is fun to dress up. I had a good excuse because I wanted to review Age of Myth, this book I read that I really loved. There were some outfits at The Arcade that were perfect so the timing was perfect.

Age of Myth is a fantasy novel, the first of five in a new series by Michael J. Sullivan. I reviewed this book on my blog HERE.
