This new top and skirt from Hucci for Collabor88 is just the ticket for showing off some of the longer hair styles from Hair Fair. It’s short, cheeky and free of collars (or even fabric) to interfere with the hair.
I had college roommates from Malaysia who wore sarongs all the time. It was amazing how active they could be without their sarongs coming loose. They showed me the proper way to wear a sarong and even gave me several sarongs over time, but I never quite got the knack and always worried when I had my hands full that my sarong might come loose without a hand to grab it. No such worries with the Hucci sarong though. Pixel knots stay in place. Continue reading →

One of the things it’s easy to forget as the frenzy dies down, is that the ARCADE is open all month. Those must have items you wanted, well they are still there. Didn’t want to pay 10X the price for a rare at some yardsale? Well, you might just get lucky with a full pulls at the mothership and after all there are still a few very good days left for Arcade shopping. Continue reading →
Who has not gotten lost in the forests of hair at Analog Dog. From my first visit, I have found the quantity and diversity of hair overwhelming. This comes from a long history of creating hair and from the skill to create hair that stands up to the test of time, changing fads and changing technology.
Any hair lover will be able to recognize Analog Dog hair in an instant. Creator Queue Marlowe’s style is easily recognized in large part because her hair moves. Flexi has gone out of fashion in large part because it cannot be rigged and because people struggle with alpha glitches. Marlowe cannot avoid the rules of alpha layers, but she can stretch those rules and she can outwit them – as anyone who has tried on her hair can see. Analog Dog hair is unique, long may it wave…and bounce.
Analog Dog Psylocibin with additional curls add on.
It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience?
Queue Marlowe: Craziest? let’s see… does making hair count? After I swore I’d never do such a silly thing? Silliest would have to be thinking that making hair was a silly idea. That and spending a week as a ball with wings. Most exciting still goes to designing avant garde costume for a real life virtual museum exhibit. Continue reading →
After a lot of wandering, lots of unpacking, even more sorting, tremendous generosity from creators and far too much spending, I have shot a large sampling of the updos available at Hair Fair. If you want to check specific photos, you can click through to the Flickr set.

Applonia Criss of Chantkare knows prints and can match them better than anyone. She has a bold palette and paints with an assertive, confident brush. This gorgeous skirt and top are perhaps the most subdued in her collection for Modavia Fashion Week, but the quiet details won my heart. I love the skirt sculpt with the the ribbon edging and trim and the gentle gathers. And green is my favorite color!
The Cloud 9 dress from Icing had such a lovely sparkle that I had to find the right setting to show it off. I hopped around exploring new places for about 40 minutes before deciding to go back to the wonderful, tried and true, Embryo.
Embryo is such a beautiful sim and so romantically lush with flowers and that gorgeous rich, red draping that I am in love with. Continue reading →
SL rezzes clothing for me again – at last. It’s not back with all the bells and whistles yet, but hopefully the next update will fix that. I have been wearing this dress for 8 days while trying to get a snap of it. I am so glad it’s such a lovely dress in case anyone saw me wandering around. It’s the dress Sissy Pessoa designed for Leah McCullough who represented her home country as Miss Uruguay in the Miss Mundo Virtual contest. Continue reading →
