Breakfast at Hair Fair!

Hair Fair Photo contest!

Guyyyyyyyyssss! Hair fair is once again upon us! I'm so uber excited about it too! I'm not entering for the contest, but.. I decided to talk to you guys about it because it's a huuuuuuuuge cause that's so dear to my heart. So.. if you don't know, Hair Fair is a yearly event to raise money for Wigs for Kids. Now.. what is Wigs for Kids? Organization that donates wigs.. for kids with cancer. Now, this really means a lot to me because not only do I have cancer, but I have family that's had it, and suffered from it, and passed.. and if you can just put a small smile on their faces, well, that's what matters. Not only that, with my daughter passing after she was born, I have a huge soft spot for children in need, and being able to see a kid with cancer smile, and  have hair.. well, how beautiful is that? I actually am tearing up just writing this. But it is because of this that year after year, many designers flock to these four sims, and donate some of their makings to this wonderful cause. I applaud the organizers for this, because it is truly something beautiful that they're doing.

Now.. one thing about hair fair? It's laggy as hell, you have to fight like hell to get in, and you crash a million and one times while you're there. Truth. But it is sooooo worth it, a lot of designers will have exclusives, and even gifts to help promote their brand. So.. being granted early access alone is a huge thing! Make sure to try and get in, I mean.. what's the worst that could happen?! You get a no? It's still a fun theme to play around, inspiration by movies? Heck yes! I've always wanted to do a Breakfast at Tiffany's poster, and now I have for something that truly inspires me. I'm copying the rules from the website, make sure to read them carefully.

Hair Fair Photo Contest has begun ......


1. This years theme is “Movies Inspire Me” be as creative as you like, feel free to include other people in your shots.
However, as in previous years, ONLY THE PERSON ENTERING THE PHOTOGRAPH IS ELIGIBLE TO WIN. This years contest will run from the 7th June – 28th June 2013

*No Nudity or sexualy suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children, naked/revealing pictures and pictures that the committee deem inappropriate will not be accepted, the committee’s say on this is final.

Be creative, but remember we are looking for pictures that focus on the hair and you. PHOTOS SUBMITTED TO THIS POOL MUST HAVE BEEN UPLOADED SINCE THE START OF THE CONTEST, PHOTOS OLDER THAN THE START WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, we want fresh focus and definite passion for this event, and this event only.

2. Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing program of choice. We don’t want to see vendor images here or store logos in the background for example. Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love.Also be aware that we wont be judging your photos on how little or much you know of PS or GIMP, rather the feel of the picture and the capture itself.That being said, please do not “over process”, we want to be able see the hair! – if you must put your name on your images please be sure to make it small and discreet in the bottom left or right of the photo…anything business focussed will not be accepted, names of avatar only.

3. Keep your photos in Second Life size format. Second Life will distort your images when uploaded into SL, and we do not want to have your images look all out of focus in the winners circle if picked.
