Bandana Kits – Tutorial and information

How to make a Bandana for Bandana Day and Hair Fair 2013 - Link to Video

For all of those that may have had some hesitation on creating a Bandana for Hair Fair 2013 Bandana Day, I made a tutorial to show how easy it is to use the tools we provide in the kit. This VIDEO shows how to use the shadow maps in an editing program and come out with a result that you can turn into your own Bandana work of art, and in doing so, help us help Wigs for Kids.

I do hope that you will give this a try as Bandana making has always been a full community project, not only the hair creators in the event.

Contact Sasy Scarborough in world for your Kit, thank you so much.

* please note, I was really nervous making this video and am very loud because of it, that and the fact that I am really loud in general.

Hair Fair Photo Contest Reminder

Hair Fair Photo Contest Prizes Poster

A reminder and some more information about the Hair Fair Photo Contest that is now taking place.

The theme is “Movies that Inspire Me“, please try and focus as much attention to the hair as possible, as this is an event for the upcoming Hair Fair, and we want all the hair to have as much attention as it deserves.

Some answers to some questions that have come up over the past two weeks - 

* You can wear any hair that you own, it does not have to be a store that is in this years Hair Fair, as we do not reveal that list until the event is about to begin. We just want this contest to be a celebration of hair, and hair creations.

* Text is not allowed on the images unless it is your avatar name, discreetly in the bottom left or right of your image.

* The image has to have been taken since the contest started, so any pictures dated or proven to have been taken prior to 7th June will not be valid.

* You cannot use images that have been entered in another event/contest as your contest entry. ( This is a huge prize pool and the people donating deserve your best effort for their contest alone, please make sure that you are entering a NEW and this contest focused entry)

* You can enter more than once, we have it set so that you can enter up to 8 images for the contest, so please do not feel that entering more than once is not allowed or in any way too much…you never know which picture will appeal to the judges.

* If your images are larger than the sizes suggested in the rules, that is ok, those numbers are a suggestion only as they are the numbers that uploading them into Second Life will produce. Please be sure to make your image larger than 512 x 512 though, otherwise they will look pixelated, and it is in world that they will be judged.

If you have any other questions about this contest please contact Sasy Scarborough or Whimsy Winx  in Second Life, we will be more than happy to help you in any way we can, and this can avoid confusion.

Hair Fair 2013 Photo Contest

Examples : Sci-fi, Black & White, Romantic Comedy, Anime, Horror, Country & Western, Thriller, Action, Drama

*No Nudity or sexualy suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children, naked/revealing pictures and pictures that the committee deem inappropriate will not be accepted, the committee’s say on this is final.

Be creative, but remember we are looking for pictures that focus on the hair and you. PHOTOS SUBMITTED TO THIS POOL MUST HAVE BEEN UPLOADED SINCE THE START OF THE CONTEST, PHOTOS OLDER THAN THE START WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, we want fresh focus and definite passion for this event, and this event only.

2. Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing program of choice. We don’t want to see vendor images here or store logos in the background for example. Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love.Also be aware that we wont be judging your photos on how little or much you know of PS or GIMP, rather the feel of the picture and the capture itself.That being said, please do not “over process”, we want to be able see the hair! – if you must put your name on your images please be sure to make it small and discreet in the bottom left or right of the photo…anything business focussed will not be accepted, names of avatar only.

3. Keep your photos in Second Life size format. Second Life will distort your images when uploaded into SL, and we do not want to have your images look all out of focus in the winners circle if picked.

Sizes options

512 x 512

1024 x 1024

2048 x 2048

512 x 1024

Check with the photographer before entering because any disputes of ownership of a photo will result in disqualification.

5. Entrants are limited to a total of 8 entries. Enter only your very best photos, as swapping out will not be allowed. We will be keeping track of who enters what, and swapping out your photos after submission will result in your disqualification. We want to make it fair to everyone.
