Hair Fair 2013: Almost Time for Demos!

Hi everyone!  Hair Fair 2013 is right around the corner. It will run this year from Saturday, July 13 through Sunday, July 28.  Hair Fair has always been my favorite SL shopping event.  This is the 8th year for the charity event and is raising funds again this year for Wigs for Kids.  Last year Hair Fair earned $10,869.59 for the charity and hopes to raise as much, if not more, this year.  Wigs for Kids, which has been around for over 30 years, is a non-profit organization that provides hair replacement systems to children who have lost their hair at no cost to their families. A minimum of 15% of all sales at Hair Fair will go to the charity.  In prior years only a few new releases had a charity script at a much higher level.  The across the board method allows designers to profit considerably more for their new items as well as the charity getting a donation for all sales.  Designers will still be required to release 3 -5 new styles at Hair Fair, so don't fear, there will be  NEW HAIR! Designers are also encouraged, but not required, to provide a dollarbie/gift bag so there should be plenty of goodies, too!

The Hair Fair Committee has worked hard to keep lag to a minimum, allowing the charity script to be the only one used for the event.  In spite of that, anyone who has ever attended knows how laggy it can be as well as jam packed for days.  The best way to prepare for the event is to join the Hair Fair Demo Group, which is free to join.  All demos will be sent via group notices on Friday, July 12.  The link just above will take you to the group's general information so that you can join.  I have also placed a joiner on the first floor of Shop Free*Style on the first floor next to the teleport board.

OK! On to the stuff I'm wearing.  I love the MOCK Cosmetics group. Not only is Mocksoup Graves one of the most generous people I know in SL, her group is a chatty, welcoming group with both seasoned and newer SL'ers, that talks about a myriad of stuff.  SL can sometimes be a lonely place and the L$250 join fee is well worth it for both reasons.  The archives are forever full of gifts from Mocksoup.  Both the shadow and lip color I am wearing are currently in archives.  I don't have as much time as I once did to hunt but I made sure I went to Sassy for the "Art is the Key" Hunt gift, the PopArt mesh dress. with it's bright Mondrian print.  The hair is one of my recent favorites from Wasabi Pills and is featured at July's FaMeshed showcase.
