Bandana Day

Hey You!!  Texture a Bandana, Eh!!

It’s almost the middle of June and Hair Fair 2017 is fast approaching!! It’s time to roll those sleeves up and get to work! I’m sorry to say that I won’t be helping out with the work this year! At least not in the capacity I’m talking about here! There’s a call out for everyone to texture a bandana for Bandana Day! These bandanas are going to be sold during Hair Fair 2017, with all proceeds going to Wigs for Kids, which is such a worthy cause! There are kits available, free of charge, and all you need to do is create a texture for it! I make it sound easy, but please know that I have absolutely no skills in this area! I do have Gimp downloaded on my computer but I think it has a glitch in it! Every time I open it I hear a chuckle and a screen comes on that says, ‘Yea, right!’. 😀 So, maybe one day I can participate, but it won’t be this year. You can get your kits in-world here or get more information on the website.

Along with the ad, I found a couple of pictures I took for Bandana Day for HF ’15 and ’16! The picture from HF’15(top right) goes back a couple years, so this is the original classic avatar look I had! I’m wearing the Orchid Bandana from Boudicca Amat and couldn’t look lovelier! The lower right is from HF’16 and I’m wearing the Butterfly Bandana from Moon Amore. I’ve changed a bit!! 🙂 You can find the credits for these looks on their original posts by clicking HF’15 and HF’16.

The 2017 edition of the Hair Fair runs July 1-16 and you know it’s an event not to be missed!!

I'm Me!

I’m me…not ‘just’ me…..but a proud and strong ME! I’m a complex woman who has the most basic of needs! I believe in miracles and I love with everything I have! I’m emotional and don’t try to hide it! I cry easily…even when it’s from happiness! I ride the ups and downs of life, but I don’t want it any other way! I have faith that I’m never given more than I can handle…and I’ve yet to be proven wrong! I love life and everyone who’s in it with me…….and will until the end!!

Hair Fair 2016 is winding down and July 31, the last day, is the day to wear one of the bandanas you picked up while there! They were created with love from a great group of designers and I always try to celebrate Bandana Day! I’ve chosen the Butterfly Bandana from MOON AMORE this year! Psyqueen has included a note card with the bandana which talks of the freedom and dreams of the person who wears it, each butterfly representing a dream, goal, or purpose in which to strive for! “Please never stop dreaming and fighting for what you want.”

Remember that 100% of proceeds from the sale of the bandanas goes towards Wigs for Kids, which does such fabulous work for kids in a fight that no one that age should ever have to go through!

I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs with gorgeous eye shadow from the Coastal Nights Shadow pack from Veechi! Also from Veechi, I’m wearing a beauty mark from the Beauty Marks 01 set, which is available at the current round of anyBODY, which runs until July 31.

I’ve used a pose from the Drama pose set from KoKoLoReS!

Love Your Bad Hair Days!

It’s time to learn to love your hair……good, bad, or otherwise! Today is Banadana Day to show support for all the people who are facing health challenges, and facing them with the stigma of losing their hair! This is the last day of Hair Fair 2015 and I’ve chosen the lovely Orchid Bandana from Boudicca Amat to show my support! By purchasing any of the bandanas at the Hair Fair kiosks, you are supporting Wigs for Kids, and looking good while doing it! Every year the Hair Fair donates tens of thousands of dollars to the Wigs for Kids foundation and I’m sure 2015 has been a complete success!

To go with the Orchid Bandana I donned the Loni outfit from NoName! The top and skirt are HUD driven with both floral and solid colours!

The lovely Adore, bare skin is from Lumae with a little eye liner and shadow added from Atia’s!

The nice natural sitting pose is from the Ground Sits pack from Kirin Poses!

I took this picture at Santaurio.
