Hair Fair 2009 is in full swing and, wow, it has been a bumpy ride so far. At any given time during the weekend one or two of the Hair Fair sims was offline. Thank you so much to the Lindens for doing all they could to make sure that we were back up as soon as possible during a a very stressful time for them with thousands of regions in the red zone.
Also a big shout out to those at Beta Technologies who have provided all four sims for Hair Fair this year at a cost to them. We thank them not only for the land but also by being awesome and actually changing the name of two of the sims to include Hair Fair in the title.
Hair Fair 2009 is from now until 4th of July and, with that in mind, it is really important that the word is spread. This event has always showcased NEW Items only from talented hair creators all over the grid but has always been about the fundraising aspect of it.
This year all money donated will go to Locks of love and that money will pay for wigs that are made for children with hair loss due to illness or injury.
On July 3rd this year, Bandana Day will be upon us. Bandana Day is the day when we all remove our beautiful hair and wear the modified Bandanas that are for sale ONLY at Hair Fair. Bandana Day is an annual event that takes place on the last full day of the Hair Fair.
Bandanas are located at the landing points of each sim at Hair Fair 2009 costing only 50L each and are transferable. These bandanas, as always, are creative, fun, and a good collectible witht he originals being deleted once Hair Fair 2009 is over. Don’t miss out on getting something someone made that you adore.
We have also added some Flickr groups this year. We encourage you to add pictures to these group to help share with people about the Hair Fair and also works as a timeline for past and future exciting events.
Hair Fair 2009 “Show us Your Hair” Group – This group is for all of those that have been blogging, taking snapshots, art pictures and everything else that showcases the NEW Releases at this years Hair Fair.
Hair Fair/Bandana Day – This group is for people to upload their ads for the bandanas they made this year or years past (please specify if not this year) as well as snapshots of people wearing Bandanas on Bandana Day 2009 and other years past.
I have been shown pictures over the past three years from excited people participating, so this year we want everyone to share with each other.
Hair Fair Booths – A group where creators or fans can show the booths of this year and years past that they enjoyed or built for Hair Fair. Often these just get deleted at the end of the Hair Fair and we would love to keep a memory of them here.
Hair Fair 2009 Official Vendors Group – This group is for all the participants of the 2009 Hair Fair to show their vendor ads. This way people can see exactly what hair belongs to what store and also be tempted by them. This group is only for pictures submitted by the creators of the hair.
Thank you, all, and remember the 2009 Hair Fair is open until midday on July 4th. It is a celebration of Hair with a worthwhile cause so if you have already been, and it was over the weekend with sims going down left and right, make sure you come back when the sims settle. You can always keep an eye on the map (type Hair Fair in search) and see how many people are in each sim.
Thank you, once again. We are grateful for the wonderful support of the Second Life community during this event.
