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).

Hair Fair 2016 – To Dance with Familiars

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - To Dance with Familiars - 1

One of my favorite things is to take fantasy elements and try to make them work for my ethnic looks. I get saddened when I see written content, blatantly stating that certain genres of characters should only be of certain body types and skin tones. I will admit, that before coming an official blogger for the Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group, my styles fell in 3 categories. Modern, Bumble Bee/Panda or Drow. When I was a drow, I was often the dark ashen skin colour. My Bumble Bee and Panda Girl looks were always with my regular dark toned skin. I will admit that I would go ethnically asian every once in a while. There was one skin maker in particular that I enjoyed, so would get her stuff for kicks every once in a while. I don’t tend to like looking at the traditional geisha looks on dark skin, that does seem really odd to me. I will wear other asian inspired clothing as I normally am though.

This is just random blabbery, for no particular reason. I haven’t been bashed or anything.

I took these shots at one of my favorite places in second life. It’s called The Outer Garden, and they just completed a reworking of 2 of their garden levels. So I decided to go exploring.  I fell in love with this one little area off the main track, and decided to do a mini, on location shoot for today’s post.

Adoness is at Hair Fair this year, with 3 new styles. I chose to show you my favorite of the selections, which made me feel all warrior woman. It is a mixed mesh style, with the braid being rigged, but the upper part of the hair being modifiable, which is super nice if you like wearing mesh heads. I just used the default shaved hairbase in the hud of my Catwa head, and tinted it to make sense with the hair.

A portion of all hairs sold at Hair Fair go to Wigs for Kids, so even if you don’t pick up this Adoness style, it is worth it to take a browse of the whole event.

Dragon Warrior

Oh, that Helli, she could drive someone to madness. I sincerely hope you all will enjoy her.

I wasn’t able to participate in the latest round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival, I will hopefully be back in it in August, timeline wise it will work out. That being said, it is still one of my favorite events to both participate in, and go shopping at.

This latest round was themed Scales, Feathers and something else(totally forget but it might have been pearls). Noble Creations made this really nifty female armour set. I feel so shiny in it.

I think even a warrior princess deserves to have a little bit of bling, so I put on these metal encased orb earrings. They sort of remind me of this incense thing I own, that hands on a planter hook. It has the glass sides, that are all colour stained. These earrings are much like that, and you can even adjust the level of transparency to the glass. Each metal type is sold separately, but they do come with a full hud for different options for the glass orbs. You will find these at We Love Roleplay, which is great for you, cause it means they ate at a discount until the end of the month.

Venturing into the Sun

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Venturing into the Sun - 1
I have been away, doing all those thing you must do in the first life, to keep the second one going. It was just a short amount of time, but I couldn’t keep away from the blog much longer. I do enjoy it, it keeps all of the “mes” sane, when work gets too much, or the kids for that matter.

I ventured out into the sun the past weekend. I was fully covered, so the sun didn’t eat me. I wonder if being photosensitive is like the mild irritations older vampires get when they walk in the sun during the day. We got the last bit of sunday afternoon, I think. The warm is well on it’s way now.

Just a modge podge outfit, of randomness. The only thing new is the dress, which you will find at [EvelineInTheBox]. They price their releases 25% off until the next new release, so if you like it, stop by and get a deal as well! There are 6 different huds, with various colours and patterns.

My amazing lipstick started the whole look and you will find the appliers for various lips, plus the inhouse mesh lips, at Soul.

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

ff16_banner_one5

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 – Queen Eyes by Mudskin

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Queen Eyes by Mudskin

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you another find from We Love Roleplay. Mudskin has created a series of eyes, which have some very unique light shines I have not seen done before on an sl eye.

They are called Queen Eyes.

They are priced L$89 per pack of 10 colourations. These are discounted, I can’t recall what the percentage on them was, for the discount. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Tomorrow is 25L Tuesday, and On a Lark has some Circlets out. One has flowers, the other doesn’t if you want a more plain look. They are currently out, prepped for the coming hoards of shoppers.
