do you laugh while screaming? is it cold outside?

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, and part the seventeenth, seen previously.)

Last of the D's today, and this is Damselfly. I'm showing off the male hairs first.

Starting off, this is Felix, a jagged shoulder-length rigged alpha style. I'm showing it in "151" and "159", respectively, from the "Dark Blondes" HUD, because the designer apparently disbelieves in actual color names.

It's very unattractive on me, not that that's surprising, because it's not designed for me--but strangely, I found I liked the look from the back.

This is "Gabriel", a side-shaved style with an intense comb-back. It's unrigged, so you can easily reposition to a better place for your scalp line. I'm showing it in "304" and "314", from the "Light Reds" HUD.

This is "Eilana", another shaved-side affair, this time styled closer to a woman's (or a seriously bish boi's) needs. It's also unrigged, and I'm showing it in "614" from the "Bubblegums" HUD, but the tricky part was finding a hair base. All I have is a list of names like "Damselfly Hair Base Mens 259 v3 Demo 1" and "Damselfly Hair Base Mens 405 v3 Demo". What COLORS are these, man? TELL ME!!!

...wait a minute, I'm being silly. Numbered colors line up with numbered colors. So all I have to do is scroll down the list and wear the "614" hair base...which only goes up to "610". ARRRRRGH--

Okay, scratch everything written above. Picture will be HERE. I'm wearing "610" from the "Bubblegums" HUD, with the "610" base...which doesn't go together anyway! The hell?!

*briefly throws things*

The second shot features the style in "401", with the base "401", and using the "Tuxedo+Faded" HUD, because I wanted to use "260" from the "Dark Browns" HUD, but the hair base set skipped that shade. Unprofessional.

Next is "Praise", which is rigged mesh, and I'm showing it in "359" from the "Dark Reds+Faded" HUD, and "414" from the "Tuxedo+Faded" HUD.

And finally, this is "Tabby", and I'm showing it and "220" from the "Light Browns" HUD.

You can find Damselfly on the Noirette sim.

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!
