Nothing [oBscene] about it !

This little blogger went to Hair Fair,

this little blogger bought it all.

This little blogger received [the oBscene] skins,

and now hair doesn’t matter at all.

I cannot express how excited I was when I received the new skins from Kuja Akina.  I actually received these a few days ago.. and have been waiting rather impatiently to post all the hair fair blogs so I could finally post about my favorite skins in the world.

Kuja has an amazing ability to create so many different personalities within her skins.  Yes, I said personality within skin.  If you don’t believe that statement, then look at the pictures above.  I can transform into everything from shy and demure, glamourous, wicked, au natural, posh, and even a little bit of crazy.  

I always feel when I wear these skins, I truly set myself apart from everyone else in SL.  In a world of all beautiful people, sometimes it’s really nice to stand out in a crowd.  And, speaking 100% truthfully.. it’s always good fun to make some heads turn 🙂 

As amazing as all these skins are, Kuja has even gone a step farther by creating a wet skin.  Although, I have not shown them here, I must say they are perfect for all those photo shoots in your sexiest bikini by the beach.

I know the world can never have enough hair, but I had to take some of my day today and participate in a little full fledged, total body fashion.  I attended the EIMA Spring Fling  Fashion Show, and while all the models were beautiful.  I also fell in love with the outfit that I was wearing and decided to blog it.  I hope all the readers enjoy a little break from hair as much as I have, it was a little breath of fresh air.   I’ll be back to my full hair blogging self tonight/tomorrow.  Stay Tuned! 🙂

Hair Fair 2009 – (And now for something completely different)

Hair Fairi - Wasabi Pills

Hair Fair - Curio ObscuraHair Fair - Tea LaneHair Fair - Hype

Hair Fair - Bish WearHair FAir - Calico Ingmann Creations

 

First of all, I must ask. ” Who caught my Monty Python reference?”  (Kudos to you if you did)

I wanted to go into my second day of blogging about the hair fair by showing off some different styles.  Some are different in just their individuality and some are just different to me(because it’s not normally my style)  But, I love all these hairs (and their designers) for different reasons.

Here are my favorite things about them:

Wasabi Pills – My favorite thing?  The fact that the men’s hair looks just as good on the women as well!  The Ailith Hair is my favorite.  These are pigtails done dirty.  (And that is a fabulous thing)  Throw on a little smeared mascara and you’ve got the perfect “Oh damn, what have I gotten myself into look.”

Curio Obscura – Who needs a big personality, when you can just have big hair?  In my opinion these are the most unique hairs you can find.  Big, Bold and Beautiful.  If you want to turn heads, then this is the hair for you.  Or just wear the “Let them eat cake off of your head” style and go about screaming “Off with their heads!”

Tea Lane – Giddy Up!  Who doesn’t love a good cowboy hat?  The Evangeline style really makes me want to go back to my home on the range.

Hype – Perfect name for a hair that is just so cool.  I love the look.  It says “Sure, I’m casual and I let my hair down.  But that doesn’t make me any less of a rockstar.” 

BishWear – Repeat my quote about Hype but add that I have always loved Bish curls.  Call me crazy, but the Billie hair reminds me of Cher in the 80s.  (You know which video I’m talking about)

Calico Ingmann – Calico has such a collection of styles it’s hard to choose a favorite.  But, I love the Talon hair.  And I love it even more in the Dark Blood red color. Noone will mess with me as long as I’m wearing this hair.  Yes, it says I’m a badass.  And it also says.  I can show off my earrings while I’m being a badass.

Sweet Hair Fair Favorites

HairFair - Posh

Hair Fair - Head Mistress

Hair Fair - Vanity HairHair Fair - Raspberry AristocratHair Fair AoharuTruth

Hair Fair - Maitreya

I can’t believe it!  Over 6 hours of shopping and I still had time to blog it all before Hair Fair officially opens at midnight.

Why did I call these my Sweet Hair Fair Favorites?  (Well, you’ll just have to wait and go!) But… before Hair Fair officially opens, I wanted to show off some of my favorite finds today to everyone.   Not just great hairs, but great designers!  These are the people I bought multiple from because I just couldn’t help myself.  I have to say that I am extremely impressed with the talented designers gathered together for this year’s Hair Fair.  And a special kudos must go to all the designers and planners because the SIM is just beautiful!

I want to point out 3 designers I’ve shown here that we haven’t seen mentioned on the grid too often, that I must say after looking at, demoing, buying, and then writing about their product I think are going to start heating up.  First up is Posh Hair.  Great Styles, texture, and movement.  I love the bows not only in the headband of one hairstyle but also in the hair itself.  Second – Head Mistress. I was just blown away when I saw these, and I must say that I love the name of the shop just as much as I love the hair.  And Third – Raspberry Aristocrat.  I didn’t have the opportunity to meet the designer of Raspberry like I did with that of Posh and Head Mistress but I was still very impressed with the hair and super excited to see hair that I had not ever bought before in my time in SL.  There are so many wonderful things about Hair Fair and the charity that is being supported.  But speaking strictly in world – I love that it is an opportunity to find new designers. 

All of the rest of the hair designers I showed you today are amazing as well.  Vanity Hair(Tabata – I love you. You are a sweetheart) and of course  Aoharu, Truth and Maitreya.  I have been waiting for the new Maitreya hairs for what seems like forever and was so glad to finally get them on.  And the Truth hair did not dissapoint.  (Truth’s hair never dissapoints me)

I also bought up the lamb and Tiny Bird.  But for sake of blogger variety I chose not to feature those in this blog since they have already been featured so much.  (I’ll just tell my readers they are amazing.. and go ahead and  buy them) 😉

No.. I’m not showing off.  I wanted to show off some great talented designers that aren’t blogged too terribly often but needed to definately be checked out. (Okay maybe  some are blogged incredibly often, but it just goes to show how much we all truly love them) Amazingly, I was able to throw all their items together.. (Just a day in my life.. Ya know.. Throwing looks together)

Let me start by apologizing for my photos now and for a little while.  My graphics card on my main computer is fried.   And, I have to save up for a little while.  We all must suffer through my graphics on my notebook computer.  ughh…

I’m going to go from the top of my head to the tip of my toes. 

The hair is actually two pieces from two fabulously talented designers.  The bangs are by Queue Marlowe of Analog Dog and the hair is by Tabata Jewell of Vanity Hair

My makeup is from a newer skin designer who I have been following from the very beginning and she is a total sweetheart- Miss BluAbyss Denimore of Vive9 (formely of LoveDot)

My NEW can’t take my eyes off of you (or off of my avatar) are the wonderfully detailed and beautifully shaded eyes from Carissa Crimson of Silhouette.  Known for her shapes, Carissa has just stepped up the eye religion.  I must say that I am a convert 100%.

The clothing is from Jojorunoo Runo of RunoRuno and I just have to say that I am always open mouthed in shock of how utterly amazing the textures and sculpted pieces of her clothing her for such an amazing low price.  Jojo has introduced fashion to those on a budget, and myself and I’m sure many on the grid are greatly thankful.

The shoes are from a partnership (fitting since there are 2 feet 😉 ) and I find it necessary to give both of them their full credit.  LeeZu Baxter and Enktan Gully of Courtisane.   Just beautiful!  Amazing textures and a completely unique style.

And no bloggers style is complete without the poses.  These poses come from a new little shop called Ana-Nations.  The designer is Anatalia Honi and she is about as nice and sweet as they come.  (Oh, and did I mention talented?)

Style Credits :   (So you can go buy from these wonderful, amazing, fabulous, talented designers)

My 6 Favorite Posers

Favorite Posers1

FavoritePosers2

When one makes a habit of blogging as much as possible, their inventory of poses tends to go through the roof.  Now, I will admit that I don’t think I have nearly as many as some bloggers and fashionistas on the grid.  But, when my pose stand of favorites has nearly 300 poses.  I think I can say that I’m a full fledged poser.  

I wanted to continue my countdown by doing something a little different and naming my favorite posers (pose makers).  My favorite countdown is about fashion, and without our poses we would never get to show off our fashions.   Narrowing my favs down to 6 was REALLY hard.  I can’t describe how hard it was.  And I know that there are some amazing, talented pose designers out there that I’m not mentioning and I have used their poses and been extremely pleased.  But, I could only choose 6.  Here is how I choose my 6 favorites.  1 – How many poses I actually had from the designer.  The more I had the closer they got to the top.  (Obviously, if I keep going back to buy more and more I really like them) and 2 – Ingenuity- Those poses that hopefully make us stop and stare.  The poses that aren’t just a stand but the onees that show a brief moment in time that seems captured still.

I want to say thank you for all the poses that are provided to us by all the amazingly talented designers.  I try to give credit to ya’ll when I can (but I do know that I am lacking in giving credit)  I do promise to start doing a much better job because ya’ll are amazing and truly deserve all the credit and thanks that you can get.

What a Feeling!

FlashDance_002FlashDance_001FlashDance_003

Of all the women I look up to… none stand out quite as much as Alexandra (Alex) Owen.  Welder by day and dancer at Mawby’s by night.  Her dream is to be obtain a place at the Pittsburgh Conservatory of Dance and Repertory; and I must admit that her persistance and determination help force me to go after many of my own dreams.  From Ballerinas to Fashionistas, we all have dreams of being something great.  And I dare say that the true definition of strength is falling down and getting right back up to continue fighting for something you truly want.

To: Flashdance, the first movie I saw in the theatres as a child and a movie that continues to give me what a feeling each time I watch.

7 Pieces of Jewelry… That I Can’t Stop Wearing

7JewelryFavorites17JewelryFavorites2

I’m back with my countdown of favorite things and this time I am featuring my 7 favorite pieces of jewelry.  I have to tell you it is getting harder and harder to pick my favorites as the numbers dwindle down.  Again I want to stress that my favorite things are not to feature what is new or what is hot. It simply is just a way to show off my favorite things in SL.  The items that no matter how much time goes by I just can’t seem to take off and the items that I always recommend to friends and strangers.  The items I look for and buy with my own L$ (I’d say hard earned, but I just buy them.. I don’t work).  Enjoy!  🙂

Sleep and Apologies

Snapshot_004I wanted to write a quick note to all of my readers, and I chose my best bed hair to do it.

I feel like I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like, and it’s because in RL I am battling constantly with sleep.  For some reason, I just can’t get enough and it’s really starting to get quite annoying.  I have appointments scheduled with doctors, but it’s taken forever. 

So, from me to you.  Thank you for standing by me , reading my ramblings, creating shopping addictions with me, and I hope I will be back up to my full self VERY soon.
