ENTER CONTEST

For any questions please contact Sasy Scarborough, Whimsy Winx or Mel Vanbeeck in world by IM, thank you.

Bandana Day.


Are you creative?  Can you texture?
Bandanas are an excellent way to help out the cause of the annual hair fair, Wigs for kids.
Every year kits are sent out to anyone who wants to make bandanas for this cause. Follow the instructions below and feel good knowing you contributed.

 
Bandana Day - Make a Bandana

If you have the Hair Fair Bandana Day kit it is because you will be creating a Bandana for Hair Fair 2016 that will be sold by the Hair Fair Committee exclusively.

If you need a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough or Whimsy Winx. Or you can purchase it for 0L at Winx & Flair in world where you will also find the Hair Fair Subscribo, so you can keep up to date with all news. Please only use this kit for what it is intended for.
Bandana Day in Second Life, started in 2007, It’s a day we encourage people from all over SL to remove their hair and wear bandanas decorated by Residents (not just hair creators!) grid wide.
The Bandana’s in this Kit have been created by Mel Vanbeeck ,and are not to be used for anything other than Bandana Day Bandanas.
The idea is to decorate the bandanas provided with either a texture (textures must not have images or logos of RL products or copyright material) prims/sculpts/mesh, or both (NO HAIR) and return it full perms to CharitySasy String – Perms will be changed to No Copy and sold Mod/Transfer as we do every year, so people can buy for others.
We also encourage you to create a notecard that explains why you have decorated the bandana, as many people have their own stories as to why they support this cause. You do not have to do this, it is just something we will include in your bandanas box to share with the person that buys them.
All money from the sale of these bandanas will go to Wigs for Kids and will only be sold by the Hair Fair Committee at Hair Fair 2016. After the event the bandanas will be destroyed, so after Hair Fair there is no reason for you to keep these other than for personal wear, but we hope also that you will buy some for that.
You all have your own friends/fans/customers so putting your own logo/name/blog on the ad is recommended, that way customers will know at a glance whose bandanas they want to buy if they are limited to purchasing only a few.
you can add your logo to the bottom right hand corner of the template we provided in the kit.
Thank you, in advance, if you choose to participate.

____________
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Rez the bandanas and add your own textures or prims. Remember these also work as a lag reducing option for many, so please try and keep the items you add to it to a minimum. Be as creative as you want, but it is a must that anything you use on the bandana be legitimately yours to use – they must be full perms items you purchased, have permission to use, or have created yourself.
The kit comes with one mesh bandana and two baked textures that can be used over your textures by using an editing software such as Photoshop or Gimp. You do not have to use the bakes, but they do add some shading and realism to the look.
Once you open the bake maps in your editing software,  use multiply which is in the drop down option at the top of your layers menus, and it will show your own texture underneath. The bake may look very dark, but those blackest sections will not be visible once layed on the bandana.
Please do not add scripts or things to your items that make them not able to be sold in no copy/mod ways. If you are in doubt contact Sasy Scarborough
Make sure to name your bandana, including your name or store name, so that people know who created it.
example: Flair – Bandana – Hipster Navy
2. Take picture and add it to the Vendor Ad template provided with your store logo on it. We would very much like the ads to stay the same, and you must not remove the Wigs for Kids or the Hair Fair info.

example:        Hair Fair - Bandana Ad Hipster Navy by Sasy Scarborough

IMPORTANT :::The ad picture must be for ONE bandana only. If you are making a few then one ad is needed for each one. These pictures are for the actual boxes the bandanas will be sold from.
Even if both mens and womens are done with the same texture they must have separate pictures so people know which one to buy , this is very important! as they will be sold separately
3. Put bandanas, ad picture and your notecard in a folder and name it “Bandana Day (YOUR NAME/STORE)” and send back to CharitySasy String.
All items except your personal notecard MUST be FULL PERMS. Your notecard, if you do one, can be NO MOD. Limit of 5 per person please.
All finished bandanas must be in by July 6th 2016
Again thank you so much for helping us make Bandana Day and Hair Fair 2016 a success!
Check out this tutorial on for using the Hair Fair Bandana Kit.
For any further info please send Sasy Scarborough an IM and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

There are soo many places participating in the giving of gifts for this occasion, 
Make sure to check that out! 

I know, these photos don't represent the true colours or texturing of the items but considering who the designers are here ( Blueberry, Reign, ZOZ & Zibska )  just know that are stunning!
 And if ya don't believe me, go grab a DEMO (You should do that anyway no matter what!)

Hair Sales


Olive Main store has finally re opened it’s doors and I am excited to share that they are having a massive sale!

 ( Taken from Olive’s info note card on the sale)

Olive is offering customers 50% off on all current hairs !!  Also all old hairs have been converted to the new HUD system.  To make up for such a long wait, all old hair are now going to be sold as fat packs, for only 375L each!!  They have  added 3 lucky boards and a daily MM board at the back of the store, before the old hair section. (A group only version will be coming soon and more prizes!)

LIMO TO OLIVE – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Alexandria/128/133/24


Also it was pointed out to us in the Hair SL  group that Raspberry is having a sale, along with the whole SIM they are on.
We went and checked it out and yup, color packs are 25L each! These hairs are pre mesh ( I think)  so great for everyone including mesh head wearers & Toodledoo avatars!

Luxe Box Info & More

Morning Dolls!

Today I don't have as many freebies in here but there are a few  Always look for the red text in my posts and they will lead you in the right direction

Today's look is centered around Blueberry's Clare romper at Collabor88!!  I am so happy for this designer to be in this event, in my eyes it is one of the best events on the grid so Congrats Blue, good things for good people ♥

Also I need to discuss these shoes from Reign

Have you heard of Luxe Box?
 It is a monthly paid subscription group you join, this round was 1500L and on the 15th of the month you get a HUD full of designer goodies. 
You just add the HUD and click the photos and delivery commences. 

Anyway for me this round is worth the fee just for these shoes.
 They are above and beyond fat pack. They come with a studded option that you can turn off ( YAY)  Reign colour Fat pack + Colours to match Blueberry & Foxes who are both also a part of the Luxe Box.  

I think you have to wait until July to be able to purchase this months box in the Luxe Sky box But check out the website here and see what you think. http://luxeboxsl.com/
 You can purchase May's box there now for 2000L You do get a LOT for that price, Check out May's goodies here - http://luxeboxsl.com/may-2016/
And this months box here - http://luxeboxsl.com/june-2016/

I hope I was able to explain things well enough here. if not feel free to message me in SL and ask, I love to help others so if I don't know the answer I sure will find out for you.

Hope you've had a happy Weekend.
Ember

More Free Hair @ Hairology


So,  just in case you didn’t get enough free hair the other day @ Hairology, more designers have set out gifts for us.
Look for the Birthday cakes in the booths, touch them and you will receive a piece of cake.  Now when you open these it can get a little tricky as they are ALL named the same.
This is what I do.
  • Add the cake to my avatar / Accept the folder /  Keep my recent items open and make sure the cake I am wearing is highlighted.  I detach the cake once I have the Gift then delete the highlighted cake from inventory.  ( Seems simple but there are so many all the same name, this is easier trust me.)   Once I have deleted the opened Object (cake box)  I find the folder I was just given and look inside, rename it by store name and place it into a folder named Hairology Gifts. This will make it simple to find them all at a later date.
Ember xoxo.
