I see a name or two and the ghosts just start to roam

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, and part the fifteenth, seen previously.)

We're out of the C's and now up to [Due]. The first style is "Precious", which comes with an alpha layer. She doesn't label her shade tones, so I'm showing it in the third tone on the "Ginger pack" HUD, and the second tone on the "Dark blond pack" HUD. The back's a little problematic, less because of strand alignment (though there's some of that on the left-hand side), than the part--it's unnaturally deep, and--at least to me--somewhat jarring.

Next is "Ruby", which I'm showing in the third tone on the top row from the "Dip-Dye 2 Pack" HUD, and the seventh tone on the "Vitamin pack" HUD. Again, it has that strangely deep part on the back.

Finally, this is "Sunshine", and I'm showing it in the first tone from the "Root pack" HUD, and the third tone from the "Light brown pack" HUD.

All of these come with attachments: a hair flower for "Precious", two separate headbands for "Ruby", and a jeweled chain band for "Sunshine", and argh, I didn't realize that until I'd already edited all the shots. Oops.
You can find [Due] on the Blonde 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 "Determination" Soul Windows eyes from IM Capped, seen here in 'Cityscape'. She makes gorgeously glossy eyes in everything from realistic tones to the most fantastical blends imaginable.
Skin: The BS Avery (So Lonely) skin in Light from Panda Punx, picked up during the Antisocial Hunt a few weeks back.
Tattoos: To deal with the psychotic magenta lips on the skin, I'm using MOCK Cosmetics' Mythic Neutralizer, then over that her L'eau Havelock Blue Lip Gloss 1, then her Vitrail Lip Gloss in Black Licorice (lip 1). Some of these may be group gifts, I can't recall, but she's a wonderful designer of makeups and skins.
Outfit: I went minimal; admittedly, I've already hit the point of being tired of demos in the leetle box. This is On a Lark's "Adena" mesh camisk in Steel; if it wasn't a L$25 item from yesterday, then it was a L$25 item from last week.

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.) Anyway, there you go--these shots are not my norm of point-and-shoot standard-midday lack-of-Windlight pics. More to come!
