Neon Arcade

Standard

Vintage Fair starts on the 4th, saturday, and this is a small preview of what you can find there, well at least some of the 80´s inspired stuff.

The 80´s always make me feel like laughing and crying at the same time, i was born in 1978, so i remember most of it, even if only as a child i used to love the colours and the big hair, my aunt was 17 when the 80´s started so i lived a lot of thru her, and she was an inspiration for this post in a way, her and Pacman that where a huge part of my childhood.

Because while she looked always super cool and fashionable, listening to music and going out clubbing i was a silly awkward kid playing Pacman on my spectrum, since we never had an arcade in town. I just couldn´t get myself to sport big hair tho, it´s the part of the 80´s that makes me wan to cry.

I must admit when i saw this sweater at Vintage Fair i squeed, and laughed like crazy, because it must be one of the more 80´s sweater i ever seen, and i never tought someone could put a whole decade into one sweater, and that is what Vengeful Threads did.

Everything else was just so easy to put on and fitted it wonderfully, and it´s mostly Izzie’s, i must say i´m totally in love with the skin, i usually stick to my Mynerva and only change for blogging, but i´ve been living in this skin for a few days now and it´s growing on me, and making it hard to take off. The leggings the nails where just perfect for this outfit, and the headband and bracelets are a gift available at the Fair.

The Puckman machine from HopScotch comes with so many poses but unfortanly SL was being a pain on me yesterday and i only managed to get two pictures, one playing and another using one of oOo Studio´s amazing poses, hopefully i will get another 80´s inspired blog post before the Fair ends.

I don´t know if i´ll be able to write a blog post tomorrow, since tonite we celebrate my parent’s wedding anniversary, but i promise you guys some FaMESHed, new stuff soon.

Hair Fair 2012 – Bandana Day

Standard

Today is Bandana day the day Hair Fair ends but also the day we take out our prim/mesh wigs and show what the event is also about, besides new releases and the showcase for new and well known hair creators, It´s also about WIGS for KIDS who for years now have been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues.

Last year the donation from Hair Fair raised almost 9.000 dollars, there is still a chance to top that number, either by buying more hair or check the Bandanas made by creators or even  bloggers exclusively for the event, and available for 50L each on all the Sims at the event.

Time to give some kids some hair by taking down our own, have a great sunday everyone.

Hair Fair 2012 – Rosy Mood

Standard

More hair like promised and this time Rosy Mood, for a different look, more casual and definitely swinging, when i saw this new dress release by Geometry i knew the Rosy Mood hair would be perfect for it, nothing goes better with lace then  a short sassy hair.

I also wanted a different setting for these pics, because i tought the whole assemble and look seemed to tell a story, as usual when i wanna take pictures but don´t have a particular spot for it i browse thru LL´s Destination Guide, and that is where i found 1920’s Chicago, that seems to come complete with dangerous scared faced gangsters, lurking at corners, but certainly safe for a stylish girl like me, who can stand her own ground.

The setting seemed perfect for lace and long necklaces this one by Maxi Gossamer and available at this months Edition of COLLABOR88, and for glamorous women stepping out of old vintage cars, that fitted so well with short hairs, and some of my more flashy earing by Bliensen + MaiTai, while my favourite mules seems to add the final touch.

A small note be careful out there tho since the nite is dark and full of terrors, stick to the streets with lights, and watch out for them gangsters.

Hair Fair 2012 – Curious Kitties

Standard

Another day and more hair, as i´ve been doing for this past weeks, slowly going thru some, not all of course of the shops in Hair Fair, which has been pretty amazing this year, with a wide variety of, prim and mesh hair, casuals and formals, regular and fantasy, all sorts for all tastes.

But today i bring you Curious kitties, and a more fantasy look on a simple background so not to clash with all the vibrant colours, all HUD adjustable, also it´s available at the shop an awesome package of summer gifts so i advise anyone looking for some essentials, or just to make themselves familiar with the shop to stop by.

As usual we have a great attention to detail, easy customization and a lot of fun going on in your head, i´m also wearing one of the simpler versions of Sakide´s Ganache dress for this round of Zombie Popcorn, make sure to check all that.

But it slowly get´s dark and late here and is time for me to say goodnite and wait till tomorrow, since m Hair blogging is still far from over.

Hair Fair 2012 – Amacci

Standard

I´ve been busy lately, not blogging here but in other places, so sorry for the distraction i promise i will make up for it, but there are so many interesting things going on, first Zodiac  started, a new event i mentioned earlier and i´ve also blogged on the Hottie Cooterati blog for the first time, Something woke up the Lion, and since the theme is all Lionesque, and heated, i just can´t step way from warm and languid colours.

Also the heat rose this week and seems that after so many cool showers, summer arrived, strong and glorious, powerful and suffocating, at least here, with long humid and hot days.

I also blogged earlier today for Zombie Popcorn, where i got the dress i´m wearing here and wanted to show it in better detail, you can find it here: The Garden Cafe.

But today i also bring you hair and this time Amacci with these lovely golden tones, and prim based hairs, for those who asked about prim hair and can´t really use mesh based viewers, here it is.

Jus remember boys and girls, a lot  more hair where that came from at Hair Fair and we still have along way to go until sunday when the fair ends, and also the day we take down our hair and walk about in our Bandanas, all available in the 4 sims that make the event, in the meanwhile folks, remember to join the Hair Fair DEMO Group in case you wanna try all the new releases first before heading out to the event.

That is all for now, see you all soon with more summer and certainly more hair.

Hair Fair 2012 – Zibska

Standard

Another day and another blog about hair, because Hair Fair is still going on until the 29th, and the donations for WIGS for KIDS, keep rising as the event is not even close to one week of being open. And today i bring you Zibska as i slowly go thru folders and folders of hair, hair demos, and Fair gifts, dollarbies and freebies.

Speaking of freebies by the way Zibska was pretty generous, you´ll find at their booth, i´m even wearing some here, the Nan hair is a Fair freebie, so are the earings and also the makeup, that come in a huge pack of several makeups in Berry, and also a lovely trio of bodysuits i´ll probably blog later.

As usual Zibska brings us fashionable over the top hairs, great not only for fashion pictures, but every day original or even fantasy looks, so please don´t forget to visit their booth.

I´m also wearing some awesome goodies from this months edition of  The Gallery Gift Shop, who just turned one, something rare in events, and that is celebrating the birthday with a new improved build and an awesome hunt, in the hunt you can find a matching envelope purse for this gorgeous dress by the boys at 22769, that i simply had to wear, and even go blonde for, so to compliment this pretty, light and soft colour of the dress.

Also from the The Gallery Gift Shop is this version of the Glam Affair Roza skin i can´t seem to take of lately.

So here it is folks, I´ll catch you all laters, probably with some more amazing hair.
