Hair Fair 2016 – Lightbloom

Lightbloom

My Daughter wanted me to be a Fairly Princess Ballerina today. I don’t always have the time to give in to her wanting to use my avatar as a personal barbie doll, but I found a wee bit of time today. I knew just the perfect outfit in my inventory, that would suit what I figured her aim was. While it might not be pink, haha, she was ultimately thrilled with all the goodies in the outfit pack. I never let her actually take over my avi, she is far too young, but she sits as close to me as she can, and oversees the whole outfit creation. This is a bit more tame, compared to others she has created, which suits me fine. If she had her way, I’d always be in pink, bows and ruffles. There would never be a spot of blood on my digital person again. The Horror!

I have always worn my own hair creations, ever since I decided that a Hair Designer was what I wanted to be. That being said, I don’t normally blatantly hawk my creations. They are simply worn and credited. Sometimes I will write a funny store story, but I don’t go “Oh, I made this, go buy it.”

So here we go . . .

Oh, I made this totally awesome hair, go buy it!

Haha, I am only saying it because it is one of the 5 styles I have created for Hair Fair, a yearly charity event, that I have participated in since the beginning of my store. A portion of every style goes to Wigs for Kids. That isn’t just my own styles, but every style that is on the 4 sims we hair designers are populating this year. There are also the traditional bandanas, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. I have 5 of those at the event as well.

I thought I’d add this hear, since this is one of the few posts I didn’t do a headshot. This set was released for Enchantment in May, and I did already blog it on my other blog, Free*Style, but it fit today’s theme perfectly, and the girl oooo’d and aaaaaah”d over them. She had much fun with the colour change huds. She always likes the Plastik items, cause they have a bagillion options(tho she still only ever picks pink, usually).

Natural Calm

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Natural Calm

Being part of a family is always great, although I don’t really talk to the ladies of Dandelion Daydreams Factory Sim all that often. They have welcomed us from Pixel Mythos, to their sim, and have given us rez rights. Many pictures have been taken on the sim, and posted to this blog, as well as Free*Style. I always feel comfortable here, and enjoy the nature on my visits. I always find something new, and enjoy visiting favorite spots. It is great for me to be able to quickly rez out an item, that I otherwise would not be able to post, for lack of a proper place to rez it.

Today I have some H&G items from [CIRCA] to show you. The log behind me, is a couples log, with many animations. It has grasses and flowers with it, to make a complete and cozy little scene. The Sleeping Willow in the back is also from [CIRCA], which comes with some grasses at it’s base. Both items you can find at Fantasy Faire, which is officially running until May 1st.

I’m also wearing a few things from Fantasy Faire. There is always so much to discover, to collect, do participate in. I actually take time off, so that I can enjoy it a bit, each year.

Fantasy Faire – Moonlit

Helena Stringer - Fantasy Faire 2016 - Moonlit - 1
The moon so bright and full, calls to the creatures of the night. There are places to be, places to explore. The vale has lifted and new worlds have arisen from the murky depth. All creatures, big and small, hear the call, and are compelled by it. Come, it says. Explore, it says.

Fantasy Faire is now open, and you have until May 1st to explore the wonder of all 14 sims.

I was lucky to be chosen to be an official writer for the Fantasy Faire Website, so you will see me posting there, as well as Free*Style and It’s only Fashion.

I have been a long time designer friend of Alpha Auer, the owner of alpha.tribe, and she contacts me yesterday, out of the blue. Low and behold, she is in Fantasy Faire, with new and wonderful avatar art for everyone to wear. We had a good chat, and she was ever so kind to pass me a few of her items.

I am wearing one of her more tame outfits, called Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Like all of the wearable art in the store, this outfit is unisex, includes skins, hair, garments, accessories and footwear. I was called to this outfit the most out of the lot, and felt very vampiric once adorned.

I decided to soup up the skin a little with the new eyeshadows from Musa, which were also released at Fantasy Faire. You can view the options HERE. The set includes 8 shadows, for default avatars and Omega compatible mesh heads. There is also a charity pack of 3 shadows, with all proceeds going to Relay for Life.

Monday Eyeful – Realistic Eyes by Angelica

***Update – Fantasy Cream has been extended for a week. It no longer ends on Sept. 30th. Enjoy the Extended Shopping!***

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I slipped on down to The Dressing Room, as soon as I saw these eyes. In my everyday, I normally have more unnatural eyes, but I do have a need for realistic ones from time to time, and these ones look beautiful.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was getting multiple eyes in one pack, rather than just a single.

They are priced L$70 for a pack of 5. You get the whole strip going down. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

Additionally, I am wearing the new outfit from Jinx’s Fantasy line, called Hosten Fae, which is a new exclusive for Fantasy Cream. The event ends on Spet. 30th, so hurry on quick and pop in. There is a little hunt going on as well, and you can pick up a very cute leaf typer, which matches this outfit.

Some of us still prefer to have our own personal look, and not have the face of a million. While mesh heads are lovely, there isn’t as many options for us males of Second Life.

A way to get around this, but keep current to the SL trends, it to wear mesh parts, which allow for the customization of the default male head.

Soul helps us with this, with their line of mesh mouths. The Kissers have a strong following with the ladies of the grid, but until recently, not as many males. This was due to lack of options, but never fear, Soul has heard your pleas, and have a bunch of new Kissers options at the current round of We ❤ Roleplay.

I am wearing the Eros Vampire Kisser. There is also an Orc and Open Mouth Kissers(sold individually) at the event. The Kissers recently had a huge update, with many changes to their system. They are now functioning fully on the Omega Script System, as well as accent layers in the hud, which allow you to add additional elements to your Kisser. There are many more little features to this update, so please read about it all HERE, on the Official Site.

Now, I normally don’t doctor my photos, I try to take the best inworld shots I can, and this has worked for me for many years. Today I did do a bit of playing, and I need to talk about it. You can see this wonderful tattoo on my face. It is from Fallen Gods Inc, and is called Hades.

Now here is the thing, while it does have the Omega Applier, I don’t think it was meant to work with the Kissers. I couldn’t get it to work, it might be that the applier is only meant for the torso, or mesh heads that have a tattoo layer. I have to admit to not using the Omega system all that often, so I could have bungled it up.

I really wanted to wear the tattoo with this outfit, for these shots, so I doctored in the missing lines, over my Kissers mouth. You can see in the first shot, I did not do any doctoring, so there is a whole section to the tattoo missing. I just didn’t want to do any false advertising. So both products work wonderfully, just not how I have styled them. The most likely cause of this is that the newest update to the Kissers has it’s own Omega Supported System, which people have to pick up a creators kit for. So the Kissers, though they use Omega, still are a little different than the general Omega scripts.

The Tattoo comes with Default Avatar Tattoo Layers, TMP, Slink and Omega Applier.

Thinking in the Dark

1
Soul lost in thought of centuries past
Mourning family and loved ones long gone
Inescapable bitterness of immortality
Kingdoms rise and fall, man toils on
Generation by generation
To what end? A purpose defined by mortal confines
Escapes the grasp of a timeless mind
Thinking weakened by bloodlust
The delicate balancing act of sanity

Today I am showing you one of the other skin lines from Deesses, which is currently only at the Skin Fair. There are still a few days left for the fair, and it is worth it to go, and not wait until things land at mainstores. Many booths have special pricing, just for the fair.

I’m mixing up the post with some items for this round of Genre. It is Biker themed, and I have had fun with all the various items I have gotten.
