Hair Fair Designers — MissAllSunday Lemon

I have been wearing Wasabi Pills since 2008, though the first year I was wearing Wasabi Pills skin and then later, when she began wearing hair, I started wearing her hair, too. Between Gidge and me, there are nearly 200 posts with Wasabi Pills hair. I do not know if I was one of the first to blog her items, but I do remember that when I first blogged her skin, she sent me a warm and friendly note. I also remember how when mesh hit the grid, she hit the ground running as if all that time before mesh was just preparation for mesh when she really got into creating a new level.

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?

MissAllSunday Lemon: Well, I honestly wouldn’t know which was the craziest thing we (me and Rouge Darcy, my partner in Wasabi Pills) did, but at the beginning we had a lot of fun going around with the strangest clothes and gadgets, talking to new people and taking pics.

The most exciting was probably when we manage to finally get our own sim

IOF: What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?

I started creating in SL right from the beginning, almost 7 years ago, making skins, while Rouge had been already creating clothes and quirky accessories for a year. One day our common friend Alia Baroque, the creator behind Fallen Gods Inc, was complaining about the lack of male fantasy hair, so I decided to try to help her out and I made my first style, she liked it, and so it began.

The biggest change was probably the introduction of mesh, we were one of the first stores to release a rigged mesh style and that was a turning point for our store.

IOF: How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you? 

We just wrote down tons of words and names, we wanted something unique and the combination Wasabi + Pills looked unique enough. Some time later Rouge googled our name and discovered that wasabi pills are apparently a good remedy for eczema… we had a good laugh.

Some months ago our friends actually brought us some wasabi pills from Japan (they’re a snack too). They taste pretty good.

IOF: What is the most challenging part of being a creator in Second Life? What is most rewarding?

The most challenging part is, well, everything. Everything takes a lot of time: creating the hair, rigging them, making the vendor’s pics, putting everything out, sending stuff to bloggers/groups and uploading it on flickr, plurk, blog etc…all these things take time.
The most rewarding is when a customer writes you just to say thank you for what you do.

IOF: Where do you get inspiration for your designs? What is your process like?

We enjoy looking at street style pics, especially japanese and korean because they provide some of the most original approaches to fashion; sometimes is a customer suggestion that sparks a new idea other times we just start with something random and see where it takes us.

IOF: What sets your hair styles apart from other hair designers, in your opinion? What is your style or aesthetic?

Mmmm I don’t know… let’s say we try to be cute and playful most of the times =)

IOF: How has your second life changed your first life? 

We moved to China for a couple of years and SL gave us great help, economically speaking. Now it’s our full time job.

IOF: What does Hair Fair mean to you?

It’s one of the biggest event in SL, definitely the biggest for us hair makers. We’re always excited to participate and it’s always fun to try to guess what the theme will be. Even though getting everything done in time usually means at least a couple of sleepless nights, it’s all for a good cause and we’re happy to contribute and be part of it.
