Hair Fair participants I skipped because of exhaustion on the final day: Tabou Irresistable, tram, Tameless, tulip., Tableau Vivant, Vanity Hair, Wasabi Pills, Xplosion, and Zibska. My apologies; I'm going to go off and collapse now.





And the usual report of what I'm wearing, now from high above the Sanguinarius Community Center:

Eyes: These are the Oni Collection 'Cumulus' eyes in "Silver" from The Plastik. I can't remember if I picked these up in-store or at Fantasy Fair; either way, they have fantastic gloss and I want more shades.
Skin: This is the "Acorn" Party Girl skin (Light tone) in the 'Cured 2' variation from Curio. It was a group gift.
Tattoos: I wanted a slightly different eyeshadow to pair with the eyes, so I'm wearing the "Lavender Fields" eyeshadow from [MOCK] Cosmetics.
Outfit: This is a printed mesh stretch dress in blue from AlaFolie. I think it was a freebie, but it's very nicely made. And I'm wearing it with a set of white socks and black wedge Mary Janes from Dark Water Designs (not shown).

And using Annan Adored Optimal Skin (No Shadows) for the Windlight setting, and pushed up the graphics a little to include basic shaders, atmospheric shaders, and the Advanced Lighting Model setting. (It's important to note that even under the relatively stripped-down Singularity viewer, my current drug of choice, that I still can't move with Advanced Lighting on, because of the induced shading, I think.) Today I've also added Ambient Occlusion, because I'm insane.

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up

I live between concrete walls

More Hair Fair coverage! (Part the first, part the second, part the third, part the fourth, part the fifth, part the sixth, part the seventh, part the eighth, part the ninth, part the tenth, part the eleventh, part the twelfth, part the thirteenth, part the fourteenth, part the fifteenth, part the sixteenth, part the seventeenth, part the eighteenth, and part the nineteenth, seen previously.)

(from the Hair Fair album; enVOGUE's offerings for Hair Fair)

We're up to enVOGUE, who once again have chosen not to give their hair shades names. They're also fond of capitals. So this is "BEYONCE", in the seventh tone from the "Light BROWN" HUD, and in the twelfth tone from the "Dark BROWN" HUD.

(from the Hair Fair album; enVOGUE's offerings for Hair Fair)

This is "BRIANNA", and I'm showing it in the third tone from the "Dark RED" HUD, and the second tone on the "Light BLONDE" HUD.

(from the Hair Fair album; enVOGUE's offerings for Hair Fair)

This is "ENYA", and you're seeing it in the fourth tone from the "Dark COLORS" HUD, and the eighth tone from the "Light COLORS" HUD.

This is "NATALIE", and you're seeing it in the third tone from the "Light RED" HUD, and the eighth tone from the "Dark BLONDE" HUD.

You can find enVOGUE on the Brunette sim at Hair Fair.





And the usual report of what I'm wearing, now from high above the Sanguinarius Community Center:

Eyes: These are the 'Lumi' eyes in "SeafoamGreen" from FuubutsuDou. While the designer may well have an eye section now, at the time, I believe I picked this up at Fantasy Fair.
Skin: This is the "Penelope" skin (MBPS, 00 HCL, No Brows variation) from from PixyStix. It was either a group gift or a low-cost, implant-friendly purchase.
Tattoos: Again, I liked this skin, but wasn't crazy about the lips. I'm using cStar's "Lips 071" in the Matte variation as a quasi-lipcover.
Outfit: The top is from No Cabide, their strapless mesh blouse gift in vintage dots. The rest is from an old Dare Designs' hunt gift, "Wildchild"--the jeans in red, the fishnet stockings, and the glossy black boots (all likely not shown, because hair shots trump knee shots this time of year).

Still using Nam's Optimal Skin 2 for the Windlight setting, and I've also pushed up my graphics a little to include basic shaders, atmospheric shaders, and the Advanced Lighting Model setting. (It's important to note that even under the relatively stripped-down Singularity viewer, my current drug of choice, that I still can't move with Advanced Lighting on, because of the induced shading, I think.) Today I've also added Ambient Occlusion, because I'm insane. More to come!
