Gallery Hunting

for credits please below the blogpost

Happy Tuesday Sweets,

yesterday a new round of the Gallery Gift Shop has started. But this cycle is a very special one: The Gallery Gift Shop celebrates its first anniversary on the grid. And for celebrations of this special event, the artist and merchants have made next to their regular items a small huntgift and have hidden them in a pictureframe. This hunt is the perfect excuse to walk around the newly designed Gallery Gift Shop. There are so many nice corners to explore! Hints are provided via notecard, you can get at the entrance of the new build. Also the merchants have robbed their inventorys and displayed (nearly) all items they have ever offered at The Gallery Gift Shop in the past circles.

Now I have told you so much about the Gallery Gift Shop, but you should also make a visit at the Hair Fair 2012. This year every vendor on the fairground give an percentage of each sale to Wigs For Kids. Next to all the new releases there, at some of the boothes you can find goodiebags with examples of their work included. But, please keep in mind, that you maybe need a few tries to teleport to Hair Fair 2012. This years Hairfair expands over four complete sims, so there is a lot to explore and discover.

But, now to my todays very classic look, wich is a mix&match of the two events.  Let me start with the awesome dress I’m wearing today. It’s from 22769 ~ casual couture and is available for 160 L$ at  The Gallery Gift Shop. The Anastacia Dress comes in mesh standard sizing and with two different versions of the alpha layer included. As usual 22769 have included the alpha textures too. The envelope bag I’m wearing is the free huntgift from 22769 for the anniversary hunt!

Yes, I have got a new and very classy and elegant look for todays blogpost.  And my new haircut comes for free. It is from the Goodiebag greatfull offered by Zibska. Next to the Nan Hair in five colors you find the great earrings I’m wearing.

Also my todays pose is from the Hairfair. Amacci has included in their freebiebag four classic modelposes. Two for men and two for girls. But to be honest, you didn’t see, that I have  using a guys poses for this entry. So I would rather label them as unisex.

That’s all for today my sweets. Hope each of you have a great tuesday ahead or behind you. See you around !

Hair Fair for the guys

hairfair_1

I guess everyone by now has noticed that the Hair Fair 2012 has started. And of course this event seems to be a fair mostly for the ladies. However – I was brave enough to teleport there and find some stuff for lads also – some surprising, some interesting and some of course fabulous. But first things first: the Hair Fair 2012 has a webpage and what I really love about the organisation of this event is the hints page, or if you want to call it that way, the fair etiquette. You can find it here and I encourage you to read and follow the tips and ideas of the organisation team because it reduced the lag, that usually comes with events like the hairfair, dramatically. I have a pretty old computer and there are for sure better internet connections then the one I use – but I experienced no major lag issues and my purchases also did not delay. Also – I completely avoided any clothing at all except of a body alpha layer. So if you have been at the hairfair and came across a floating head – jep, that was me.

Surprises: Like said – after following the instructions of the organisers I experienced nearly no lag at all – and that was a surprise for me. Another surprise was the lack of some hair designers I expected to be at the fair like i.e. Dura. I also did not expect to meet so many fellow men at the fairground.

The following finds are strictly my personal taste – there are of course some more mens hair to find. So lets start with above picture. This is a new release from [COLORS] called 57 (Black Pack). It is sculpted the old way and I love the overall look of it. Also with 100 L$ per colorpack it is not overexpensive.

From left to right:

Magpie: This was a complete experiment cause the hair is supposed to be womens hair. But be honest: It is short, it is curled – it is pretty much unisex. I tried a demo and even tho I was (of course) not able to modify it I assumed that it could fit me with a few minor tweaks. Also 120 L$ is okay for an experiment. And see – it works. I just made the hair a bit bigger and I have a trendy kind of short curly haircut. Definitely one of my surprise finds on the Hair Fair.

[COLORS]: (again) This time with the Freebie they offer in their booth called FREE D.

*ARGRACE*: Straw Fedora – yet another Fedora, but well – I love this one cause the texturing on it is excellent. It is also a Freebie at the Hair Fair and it comes in three colors (blue, khaki and purple)

[INK]: NATUM (white) and another Freebie from the Hairfair. The cut of the hair grew on me and the color can work for special occasions.

Talking about Freebies: The necklace in all pictures is the freebie at the booth of {fashionably dead} and is called “Abstract Bird Necklace”. And also the poses I used for this blogpose are indeed a Freebie at the Hairfair and come from Amacci. The eyes instead are not free but a steal at the current Mens Dept. It is the mesh eyes from Poetic Colors (pearl aurora).

Happy Wednesday Loves,

just a few more days before one the events we all have been waiting for opens its doors to the puplic. Culture Shock 2012 starts in Second Life.

Today I have the pleasure to show you all some of the items you can expect there. But before I start with the goodness, I would love to tell you something about Culture Shock 2012.

Culture Shock is an annual event organised by CHIC Managment and Modavia Fashion Marketing. The Event runs from 2012,  May 4th –  26th. You can find new creations from Designers all over the grid. And each of them has a Donation Item with proceeds go to Medicins Sans Frontieres. This item is in most cases a new release fot the Event. So Ladies, this is shopping for a good cause.

For this great event I got naked in my first blogpost. This is just to  show you the great Coffee Skin named Osumare from cStar Limited.  The chair I am using is also available at Culture Shock. The Coffee Chair I am using in the image above is from estetica. This chair has only a land impact of 3 (3Prims) and comes prefilled with different poses (changeable by menu).

The classic Highheels I’m wearing today are from +9 and free for everyone.

As usual after the next image you find all credits of the items used in this blogpost … and expect more goodies from Culture Shock 2012 soon. Until then: Stay save …
