Insinuate Hairoin Post

Ruina Kessel, owner of Rue and the Insinuate blog, has posted a fantastic collection of pictures of the Hairoin Hair Fair styles.  I've always enjoyed Ruina's photos - they're creative and well done.  You can tell she puts a lot of work and effort into them.  This makes me suspect she would have made a fantastic interior designer and perhaps has a bit of fashionista in her soul.  At least a fashionista of an off-beat sort which suits me just fine.  I mean, sticking your toe in the mainstream every once in awhile is fine but I prefer to splash in puddles. ;)   Head on over to her blog post and check it out.  You won't be disappointed.

One more thing....

I wanted to do this but forgot...
To the Hair Fair Committee, in particular Sasy Scarborough, are absolute machines.  They are tireless; they keep us organized and on track, get the land to host Hair Fair, design, build and texture the short, they do a tremendous amount of work to make Hair Fair a reality and all deserve our thanks.

The Hair Fair Post

As I'm being all masochistic by creating hair after just getting finished all the prep for the Hair Fair, it occurs to me that I have to get the blog post ready.  A 17 pound black cat sitting on my mouse doesn't help matters either.

     Arista is the first style.  This is a mix of prim and sculpt and the pony has a bit of flex in it.  As always, it's equipped with resizing script and is modifiable for those of you who are either brave or used to tweaking prims.

Skin - Alena - Pink Fuel
Lips - Wet Lips Dark - Kosh
Earrings - The Key - Kosh

This is Bastion and the one I simultaneously had the most fun with and the biggest headache in building.  Suffice it to say this went through no less than 4 versions until I got to the result you see.  And if you're sitting there thinking, "this reminds me of something", you wouldn't be wrong if medieval headwear came to mind.  In case you can't quite see it in the pictures,  a braid runs along the top edge of the 'wing' which terminates in a braided ball at the back.  The hair is resizable and is equipped with resizing script.

Dress - Victoria the Queen - o00iprincei00o Magic

Dawn is this style's name.  A twist on a classic updo where the one side has an array of hair feathers around the ear.  The style is modifiable and is equipped with resizer.

Skin - Linn - Glam Affair
Jewelry - Vintage Romance - Earthstones
Dress - Chantilly Mode - Nonna Hedges
Playlist: "Last Night" by Keyshia Cole

The below style is called Fiona.  A chignon style with a few loose wisps as the front.  Again, it's equipped with resizer and is modifiable.

Skin - Mya - Belleza
Clothing - Shattered Glass - Mischief
Playlist: "Star Me Kitten" by William S. Burroughs

This final style is Sparrow, a short, swept-to-the-side style. The hair base is included with the style and it's modifiable and equipped with resizer.

 Skin - Linn - Glam Affair
Clothes - I screwed up on this one. I thought it was Melancholy by Delirium but found out it wasn't when I went back to find it and couldn't.
Playlist: "Song 2" by Blur and "Soothe My Soul" by Depeche Mode

Finally, is the Hair Fair Dollarbie found in the booth.  These are special variations on the Sparrow style and will NOT be for sale after Hair Fair is over so get them while you can.

50% of the proceeds from all the Hairoin styles sold at Hair Fair go to Wigs for Kids.  It's a worthy cause and if you would like to know more about it you can find information on their website    To all of the Hair Fair attendees who make a purchase at Hair Fair (not just Hairoin but from any of the vendors there) a big Thank You to you!!
