All comments are now closed on this, thank you for your applications.

One of the most exciting days of Hair Fair has always been Bloggers Day – this year it will be 3rd September. Exciting for the committee because it is a test run for the event, and exciting for the designers as their new releases are revealed to people from all over the world. In the hopes that they will share their creations through blog posts with amazing pictures and delightful insights.
This year we are making sure that enough notice is given for bloggers from all over Second Life to apply for admission to that event. It is limited in numbers, because the sims themselves have avatar limits, and there are many hundreds of bloggers.
Priority will be given of course to bloggers that did a lot of posts on the event last year, as well as those that feature and give credit to hair in their posts all year round. The bloggers must also be regular bloggers, with visible posts crediting them as author.

All bloggers applying will have to provide a link to their blogs, as well as a minimum of three blog posts relating to either Hair Fair past, or Posts that they feel are focused towards hair – no editing of previous posts.EDIT BELOW
Full Avatar name, as well as flickr link if you have one.
All applications are to be done in the comments of this post, the comments are moderated, the info will not show to the public. ONLY the committee will see the applications, this is not meant to be a cattle call, but we do not want to miss out on anyone due to Second Life lag, and the possible misdirection of notecards.
If you are not a fashion blogger, but an events blogger, who would like to do a feature on the event, please apply, we would love to see the event covered as a whole, including info about the charity Wigs for Kids etc.
You must have your comment application in by the 10th of August, as preparations for the event will need to be organised, and invitations sent out.Only one blogger per blog may be accepted due to limits.
Thank you All
Hair Fair Committee

EDIT : There seems to be some confusion as to what and who can apply for this. ALL fashion bloggers that wear hair in their posts, and credit hair in their posts can apply. Those that actually do mention in their posts that such and such released new, or that they got new hair, or that they love the new hair from, or that they wish such and such would make more new hair, because the hair they are wearing is from them and they love it  CAN APPLY TO BLOGGERS DAY. The ‘focus’ on and Hair posts part was to let those that never change their hair, and those that don’t credit the stores they get the hair from from know that they would not get access over those that do.

Those that are confused by that, it was not our intention to do so, the rest of the committee looked over the post first, and we didn’t read it as being too rule focused, if in doubt, think about WHO the people are on the committee, at least 5 of them are bloggers.

With their help we plan on having many treats for you at Hair Fair 2010. Not only will they be donating the sims, but are also building the booths and ambiance for us, which is a huge task and we are so appreciative of them for that.

Unfortunately the Subscribomatic that was previous used has not been transferred over in time for this years event, so if you joined it last year or prior to the last month, please make sure and visit one of the two locations HERE and HERE and subscribe again for up to date info on Hair Fair 2010. As usual our Flickr Contest will take place prior to opening, so keep your eyes open for announcements regarding that.

Important to all

Hi All,

It has been brought to our attention that many are upset about not being invited to the pre opening of hair fair, we totally understand how that can be, it happens with so many events throughout the year. The day before Hair Fair has always been a crazy last minute setting up day, designers upset and stressed, tears and tantrums ( oh wait thats only me ) and unfortunately for some; computer issues that keep them locked out from setting up their booth until minutes before opening – prays for Helena Stringer to get in in time, so she isn’t upset.

It is the same confusion every year, last year though we decided to make it a sneak peak for a handful of people that may encourage many to come and donate with their hearts to this worthwhile cause, and buy some fabulous hair in the process. We never intended anyone to feel that they were not as important in the designer/blogger community, it is just that we cannot invite everyone on that day, but invite all to join us on the official opening day.

It is also a Prize for the winners of the Flickr Contest to have that access too, that they are VIPs for the day, and actually get a chance to run into other talented people like themselves, we are so happy to be able to share this day with a few, its our practice run also to make sure scripts are working and people let us know if things aren’t correct, beta testing if you will.

Hair Fair is never fully set up on this pre day, so people have to navigate around empty booths and designers, as well as random prims, so know full well that anyone that is here prior to will also have to return once it is open to really get the full feel of Hair Fair 2009.

We strongly hope that this in no way reflects on the efforts of the hundreds of people that have worked so hard for this event, not just the Committee but the Hair Designers, builders, scripters, and partners and friends that have endured months of preparation. We know deep down you understand how this has to be, and look forward to seeing you all at the Hair Fair.

Don’t forget that Bandana Day is the 3rd of July and those are placed around the fair for purchase, we hope that many bloggers will encourage others to replace their hair on this day.

Again thank you all for making this about Community Spirit not just the individual.
