he took a white rose from my hair

There are now seventeenth-century Chopines on the grid. They look amazing in the picture; as soon as I can, I am so getting a pair and checking them out in person.

And the first set pictures from Dark Shadows have surfaced. That's bound to be an odd film for several reasons.

Team Fortress 2 server runners now have the ability to ban free-to-play players. Here's what gets me about this--yeah, it's a sleazy tactic, but a) server owners don't have to download the plugin, it's completely voluntary, and b) to become a premium player of TF2, you just have to buy something--anything--from the Mann Store. With their current sale (some items dropped to ninety-nine cents, even!), how is that in any way difficult?

And then the plugin wouldn't work anyway. So why the outrage?

Meanwhile, in news of the real world--well, sort of--there's a guy who set up a Tumblr page advertising hunters to come and hunt him down for cash. I am baffled by every single aspect of this. Is it comedy? Is he serious? No one seems to know.

More from Hair Fair!

First up, the Godiva hair/dress from ChiChickie:

(from the Hair Fair album)

The tone is Mocha, the adjustment is finicky, and the prim count is VERY very high. It also comes with an underpant/undershirt layer, and trust me, with the finicky adjusting, you so want to wear them! Still, if you want to make an impact at that next party, or want to take some really unusual pictures, this is your outfit.

They can be found on Hair Fair II (aka Oceania/Platinum).

(I haven't been commenting on these, because I'm going through so many demos, it's taking long enough as it is. But this one...this one is just so completely bizarre, I had to say something.

(I'd been doing a run of close shots, so I didn't understand what I was seeing at first. Until I pulled back.

(Here's a slightly closer shot:


(from the Hair Fair album)

It's an intense sweeping braided updo in back, and that braided sweep is surrounding the metal struts that make up the rest of the piece--thirteen explosions of hair that flex in sinuous patterns. I can't imagine a single place I could wear this--but I'm tempted towards getting it all the same, just for the absolute epic nature of this hair.

Anyway. Back to the rest of the pics:)
