Note To Moth

I felt adventurous on Saturday and decided to do a bit of wandering about. I found a city RP sim that was a bit dystopian (found in search using FALL). It was a great place to shoot and no one was around for me to disturb their RP so -PERFECT. Continue reading

Nerves

Hi all! I’m new here, and I am nervous! I have looked up to the authors of this blog for a long time so when they asked me to guest blog for them I was pretty surprised and delighted! They asked me weeks back and I hadn’t done a post yet. I wanted to do a look that was totally “me” and I kept trying to think of one but nothing was good enough in my mind.  But then yesterday I thought to myself “You know what, Sileny? Just wear what you’re wearing right now.  You like it, it’s very October, and Rose says it’s not TOO revealing for the blog (lol.) Besides, it’s only fashion!”

So, here we are. Just like the October Scorpios of the world, it’s a bit saucy and a bit spooky. I love Scorpio season and it is approaching fast. I can’t wait. OK, maybe I don’t actually believe that Zodiac stuff, but pumpkin pie, Halloween, and perfect cuddle weather is great no matter what your sign is. And there’s always an excuse to be secretly sexy on your avatar.

This dress from Le Fil Casse is perfectly spooky-sexy and called out to me immediately when I saw it advertised for Fifty Linden Friday. I had to have it!  My makeup is from La Malvada Mujer, one of my all time favorite makeup stores in SL. It just reminded me of my punk teen years when people would put on too much red lipstick and black eye makeup and we would look wild and sloppy…and freaking awesome. Does it make me seem super old to say that I miss the times when you didn’t have to be a super pro to make your makeup look good? Yeah, I am old.

Anyway, thanks for reading my rambling and I hope to be able to participate in the blog again! Have some credits and have a great day! You deserve it. 🙂

What’s your favorite thing about Hair Fair?

The fact that I am able to help children with my creativity.

What drew you to creating hair, arguably one of the most difficult challenges for creators?

I always had a fascination for different, edgy hairstyles in real life so I decided to make those in SL. It was a challenge to learn the process but in the end, it was worth it. Now I get to share my taste with others and get to see how others wear my hair.

Adoness Brand

Adoness

How would you describe your brand’s aesthetic or niche?

Adoness niche is punk/alternative/rock hair, mostly with shaved sides. The brand aesthetic – A dark fantasy world with endless starry nights. Peace, serenity, and cuteness are how you could describe my vision of the brand.

What comic/cartoon character would shop at your store? Veronica, Betty, Olive Oyl, Miss Piggy, Storm?

Kermit the Frog, I’m sure.

What inspired the styles you created for Hair Fair?

I picked up inspiration from requests I receive from my customers. My friend requested straight fringe styles. Beanie hairstyle which was released at Hair Fair was named after her.

Do you have a funny hair story to share?

One happened recently. It was a request from my customer. It was dark but I find it incredibly funny, “Some of my friends and I have been hunting down a hair we saw on Marketplace and it led me to you.  Will the Ares hair be put up for sale?   We are willing to give up Lindens,  our first born and do sacrificial slaughters. Other forms of payment, death and mutilation will be considered.”

Which hair from your collection is closest to your real life hair?

Odin

 The Odin hairstyle was created according to my own hair at the time.

Feels Like Fall

I have to confess I’m an addict for fall. While the heat in the RL stays in the 90s my SL turns into a pumpkin colored wonderland at the first hint of autumn. The SALEM event kicked off and that has to mean it’s fall doesn’t it? I’m positive it means that. I’m sporting new lips and eye BLACK MAGIC makeup from ALASKA METRO that you can pick up at SALEM.

I’m doing a bit of urban shopping today in a sharp suit from Baiastice and my favorite HAT HAIR from Hair Fair this year. Every year I declare a BEST HAT HAIR at Hair Fair and honestly – THIS IS IT FOR ME. SO CUTE. Perfect for the breezy city streets while I look for the next bargain! Continue reading

For Hair Fair this year, I will be interviewing willing victims (designers) about their participation in Hair Fair and their love of hair. Nodoka Vella is the creator for {Amiable} and has a booth at Hair Fair with adorable kawaii styles. 

What’s your favorite thing about Hair Fair?

The most favorite thing that I think is we can see so many beautiful hairs at the same place and also same time each year from all over the world in SL. We can enjoy the gift and also amazing hair shopping experience. I am always inspired by other’s creations and respect the other designers.

What drew you to creating hair, arguably one of the most difficult challenges for creators?

Recently the hairs in SL are really high quality, I need to brush up my skills and also work harder and harder every year. The hairs are really beautiful and have more details, so I need to spend time to make each hair and also think about unique design of hairs for my idea.

How would you describe your brand’s aesthetic or niche?

There are so many cool and amazing hair shops in SL. I try to make unique Japanese hair styles and also want to introduce “JAPANESE KAWAII” fashions for customers in SL, so I always give the nice opportunity to enjoy shopping with cheap price. I want people in SL to get more choice to shop unique items. I hope you guys enjoy SL more and more<3

What comic/cartoon character would shop at your store? Veronica, Betty, Olive Oyl, Miss Piggy, Storm?

Sailor Moon

Do you have a funny hair story to share?

When I was a child, I decided to cut my own bangs—once! I didn’t know what I was doing. OMG!!! My bangs stood straight up. LOL. I was really disappointed. My hair looked so ugly!!!!!! I did not try that again.

Can you give me links to your store, Flickr, blog

25/09/2018

Oh hai! Apparently there’s a trend on Flickr that consists of taking pictures sideways, or with an horizontal avatar. From what I understand the goal is to get one’s picture picked as group cover, then one snapshots said cover and posts it again on their Flickr. I find that last part highly ridiculous, but just like bloggers referring to designers as “sponsors”, I guess that’s how the world goes nowadays and you just have to go with the flow. I do miss simpler times, when one blogged just what they liked, when they liked it, and once in a while would get blogger copies and would be over the moon with them… oh well, I’ll just keep my old fart’s habits and hope people enjoy my ramblings. But just for today, just for the fun of it, here’s a horizontal picture :

Wasabi Pills At The Hair Fair

Hair Fair is one of Second Life’s oldest traditions – the oldest probably being something skeevy we won’t mention here. I can remember my earliest exposure to Hair Fair and I can even remember the hair I fell in love it.

Gogo blogged the hair, and I just knew I had to have it.  It was a wavy blonde, and it had a cute braid and it was adorable.  I ran straight over and bought it.

When I saw this release for Hair Fair from Wasabi Pills it reminded me SO MUCH of the original I loved (the original had the braid down the side and let’s face it, it was flexi SO NOT THIS PRETTY) I really really wanted to do a side by side. I thought it might be fun to take a look at the amazing progress our creators of hair have made over the past decade.

But then I realized I had deleted that hair.  141k in inventory and I’ve deleted the damn one I want. Nice. Continue reading

23/09/2018 – Good Hair Day

As Gidge told you earlier, Hair Fair is here!! If you needed an extra reason to go, here are a few :

  1. It’s for a good cause : every purchase has a 15 to 40% donation to Wigs For Kids.
  2. The sims are really easy to navigate : start at landing point, follow the path and you will walk by every store.
  3. Everything has been made so that it’s not lag fest : minimalist decor and scripts. I do however recommend you wear a full alpha and nothing else, and show friends only, to help keep everyone’s experience nice and smooth.
  4. If you’re a hair whore like me, you’ll have your fix of gorgeous hair!

What? Still not convinced? Take a look at just a few of the gorgeous hair that can be found there :

Left : Astrology – Andrew // Right : Analog Dog – Em + Izzie’s – LeLutka Bento Baby Hairs V2

Left : Argrace – Chitose // Right : Clawtooth – Fleur + Izzie’s – Baby Hairs Hairbase
