On The Threshold

We are finally on the threshold of Hair Fair 2017. It starts in just a few hours (midnight, if I’m not mistaken). In the meantime, I have a couple of things you can do to keep you occupied.

First, visit Japonica. This is a themed event that celebrates the Japanese culture. The Niche dress from Salt & Pepper is a beautiful example. The flowers across the bodice preserve your modesty, despite the sheer top. The dress can be purchased in either single colours and of course, the amazing fatpack. The flowers are colour-change via HUD and with the fatpack you can mix and match the tones of the bodice, waist and skirt for your favourite combination.

After you have completed your shopping excursion, you need to join the free Hair Fair demo group, to get you ready for your shopping spree. To join, copy and paste the following into local chat in Second Life and join the Hair Fair DEMO Group


The designers are loading this group so you can choose your favourites before heading out to shop. With four full sims, that’s a lot of designers and a lot of demos! Best of all, a portion of all proceeds go to Wigs for Kids, a fabulous charity that donates wigs to children with illnesses or treatments that cause hair loss. Hair Fair is a wonderful way to feel good about spending your money, knowing that you will be helping to make a difference in a child’s life.

Step over the threshold; you have things to do.

Curtain Call

I may be getting ahead of things, since Skin Fair 2017 has just begun, but all of the designers will be deserving of multiple curtain calls once the event closes on March 26th. They have truly outdone themselves, with stunning skins, tattoos, makeup appliers and mesh head releases. After the cut, I’ll give you more information to prepare you for one of the biggest events of the Second Life year, including sim maps and SLurls to the fair.

Before I do that, I wanted to make sure that some other releases weren’t lost in the shuffle of Skin Fair. Collabor88 is spectacular this month, with warm and wonderful designs from the top creators in SL. I could live in these leg warmers from fri.day at the event. With autumn upon us in Australia and winter looming, they will surely become a staple in my wardrobe.

The Liaison Collaborative is up and running with their 4th birthday round. There are some beautiful home and garden items in this round and many of the designers have put out birthday gifts – yours for the taking. Do make sure you visit.

Jump past the cut for a close up of my skin, the promised details on Skin Fair and the ever popular credits!

Before & After


We have all had those moments, when we are so exhausted we just have to have to sit and rest. Head dropped for whatever support can be found, eyes barely held open. It is a “before” image that is simply borne of exhaustion.


But following a refreshing pause, with a toss of the hair and a swing to the hips, it is an “after” of epic proportions. Calm, confident and in control.

The Before & After hair is from .:EMO-tions:., available at The Liaison Collaborative in March. It is two separate styles for two different moods. And it is fabulous.

My gorgeous shoes are a gacha prize from fri.day at the March round of The Arcade. They work so well with jeans or a pair of straight-leg trousers that you really must play until you win every colour.

I am once again sporting the Freya skin by *Birth*, coming to Skin Fair 2017. I am driving home a point here, ladies; you really need to try this skin!

It will be a transformative Before and After when you do.
