now we’re at my favourite part of blogging hair fair, showing off what i picked up 😀
this is “gossamer rain” from clawtooth. i loved the messy look to the front and the romantic braid in the back. clawtooth is located on the sand sim.
analog dog’s “ging” had to be mine… i love that its not only rigged mesh, but also comes with a flexi addon for movement! analog dog is located on the water sim
the inevitable pigtails… seems like every year i have to have at least one pigtail style from hair fair. this year its exile’s “silent wings” which comes with an added feather attachment shown here. these are pretty cute without the feathers as well. exile is located on the sand sim.
yes i admit i am a huge fan of the skrillex style half shaved head hair… i’d totally rock this in rl if i thought i could pull it off! this one is from wasabi pills and is called “aida”. wasabi pills is located on the water sim.
and last but not least!
i couldn’t leave hair fair without something wild! this is the Aaliyah 2 style from CiC! it comes with detachable ivy for the hair, and a lovely set of jewels for your forehead. Aaliyah 2 is the longer hair style and has a flexi attachment for movement in the back. there is also Aaliyah which is a short version of this (basically, no long hair in back). CiC is located on the garden sim.
and that’s all she wrote! unless i go back for a second round, because there were some great stores still not open during the blogger preview.

i have always admired the hairs at discord design for their unique look and the detail that goes into them. from the hair bases to the braids themselves. this year at hair fair, discord designs has given us some amazing mesh creations which i just so happen to have. (please pardon the lines in these photos.. shadows hate me D:)
lets start with the shortest:
bouncer is a pretty awesome mohawk and what really blew me away was the fact that every single individual hair has been created!
lets grow our hair out a little bit…
delrey is a short braid style with the awesome hair base that makes it really look like its coming out of your head. i love the detail in discord’s braid bases!
devlyn is kind of a sister to the delrey style, using the same hair base and the same basic braid shape, but longer!
dhilon is a gorgeous thick dredlock style that i am totally in love with. i really love the detail on the back.
and finally my fave of the whole set of hairs that discord has for hair fair… phoenix. this could be a beautiful hair style for a modern day rapunzel, or a bad ass look for a videogame character.
Discord Designs is located on the Water Sim. NOW GO! BUY HAIR!
there were a TON of gifts at hair fair this year, the hair creators of hair fair were very generous this year 😀 i’ve picked out a few of my fave freebies to showcase:

i awoke to half a dozen people on plurk screaming about hair fair blogger day this morning. after waiting out the maintenance that LL decided to drop on us just as the sims opened, i finally jumped inworld and celebrated my favourite time of year in second life.
seriously, when ever i rez on the hair fair sims i hear “its the most wonderful time of the year” playing in my head. my pockets are empty now… i have quite the haul this year! and just like last year i do plan to highlight some of the quality freebies/cheepies available as well! there are some really awesome useable freebies out there this year, i do love when hair makers put out good gifts 😀
i still need to get my photos in order so here’s a shot of the hair fair build to get you excited! the theme this year is really lovely. i like the zen rock garden look.
