Decorate a Bandana for Bandana Day & Wigs for Kids

Bandana Day - Make a Bandana

If you have the Hair Fair Bandana Day kit it is because you will be creating a Bandana for Hair Fair 2017 that will be sold by the Hair Fair Committee exclusively.

Examples of Bandanas created in past years…
Bandanas for Bandana Day 31st July

If you need a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough. Or you can purchase it for 0L at Winx & Flair in world where you will also find the Hair Fair Subscribo, so you can keep up to date with all news. Please only use this kit for what it is intended for.

Bandana Day in Second Life, started in 2007, It’s a day we encourage people from all over SL to remove their hair and wear bandanas decorated by Residents (not just hair creators!) grid wide.

The Bandana’s in this Kit have been created by Mel Vanbeeck ,and are not to be used for anything other than Bandana Day Bandanas.

The idea is to decorate the bandanas provided with either a texture (textures must not have images or logos of RL products or copyright material) prims/sculpts/mesh, or both (NO HAIR) and return it full perms to CharitySasy String – Perms will be changed to No Copy and sold Mod/Transfer as we do every year, so people can buy for others.

We also encourage you to create a notecard that explains why you have decorated the bandana, as many people have their own stories as to why they support this cause. You do not have to do this, it is just something we will include in your bandanas box to share with the person that buys them.

All money from the sale of these bandanas will go to Wigs for Kids and will only be sold by the Hair Fair Committee at Hair Fair 2017. After the event the bandanas will be unavailable, so after Hair Fair there is no reason for you to keep these other than for personal wear, but we hope also that you will buy some for that.

You all have your own friends/fans/customers so putting your own logo/name/blog on the ad is recommended, that way customers will know at a glance whose bandanas they want to buy if they are limited to purchasing only a few.
you can add your logo to the bottom right hand corner of the template we provided in the kit.

Thank you, in advance, if you choose to participate.

____________
INSTRUCTIONS

1. Rez the bandanas and add your own textures or prims. Remember these also work as a lag reducing option for many, so please try and keep the items you add to it to a minimum. Be as creative as you want, but it is a must that anything you use on the bandana be legitimately yours to use – they must be full perms items you purchased, have permission to use, or have created yourself.

The kit comes with one mesh bandana and two baked textures that can be used over your textures by using an editing software such as Photoshop or Gimp. You do not have to use the bakes, but they do add some shading and realism to the look.

Once you open the bake maps in your editing software,  use multiply which is in the drop down option at the top of your layers menus, and it will show your own texture underneath. The bake may look very dark, but those blackest sections will not be visible once layed on the bandana.

Please do not add scripts or things to your items that make them not able to be sold in no copy/mod ways. If you are in doubt contact Sasy Scarborough

Make sure to name your bandana, including your name or store name, so that people know who created it.

example: Flair – Bandana – Hipster Navy

2. Take picture and add it to the Vendor Ad template provided with your store logo on it. We would very much like the ads to stay the same, and you must not remove the Wigs for Kids or the Hair Fair info.

example:        Hair Fair - Bandana Ad Hipster Navy by Sasy Scarborough

IMPORTANT :::The ad picture must be for ONE bandana only. If you are making a few then one ad is needed for each one. These pictures are for the actual boxes the bandanas will be sold from.

Even if both mens and womens are done with the same texture they must have separate pictures so people know which one to buy , this is very important! as they will be sold separately

3. Put bandanas, ad picture and your notecard in a folder and name it “Bandana Day (YOUR NAME/STORE)” and send back to CharitySasy String.

All items except your personal notecard MUST be FULL PERMS. Your notecard, if you do one, can be NO MOD.

Limit of 5 bandanas per person.

All finished bandanas must be in by June 14th 2017

Again thank you so much for helping us make Bandana Day and Hair Fair 2017 a success!

Check out this tutorial on for using the Hair Fair Bandana Kit.

For any further info please send Sasy Scarborough an IM and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hair Fair 2017 Photo Contest

Hair Fair 2017 Photo Contest -  Wild Side

Important:
By submitting your images to the contest you give the Hair Fair 2017 committee the permission to use your photos in world, as well as on the website in a “winners” capacity if they are chosen as such.

NO NUDITY or sexually explicit images, no female nipple exposure (including sheer clothing). This is a contest for a charity event for children. The committee has the final say on all images approved or declined.

All contest entries are done by submitting your pictures to the Hair Fair Photo Contest 2017 Flickr Group pool.

Theme: Wild Side!

Wild Side! is this year’s theme, based on unnatural hair colours. The overall look of the image can be your choice, but the rule is that you must have unnatural hair colour in your picture. This does not mean black and blonde mixes, or brown and red mixes, this means neon pink, pastel blue, glittery, rainbow etc. You can use white/silvery as an unnatural, unless of course you are 97. You cannot say you are usually a redhead but you went blonde.

If you are confused by this in any way, please contact Sasy Scarborough.

Examples :

YES   NO

NO   YES

This gives you the chance to really show that the effort Hair Creators put into making these imaginative colours and designs is a great addition to our SL. It also opens up for some very imaginative looks.

If your picture contains more than one avatar, not all avatars have to wear unnatural hair, but the focus must be on the person/s who is.

Hair must be the main focus of your picture entry!

Contest starts 29th May Closes 16th June 2017

Rules:

1. All pictures taken must feature hair created by one of the stores providing prizes for the contest. The stores will be listed below and on our website.

*You must name the hair and the hair store in the description section underneath your picture.

*You must include your SL Avatar user name (no display names) so that we can contact you if needed.

Title – Hair Fair 2017 Photo Contest

Hairstyle – Spell on You
Hairstore – Exile

2. All pictures must be new for this contest. Older photos are not to be used. If photos are found to be older, or used in another manner other than this contest, they will be removed.

This contest was announced on the 29th of May 2017, any pictures older than that date will not be approved.

3. All pictures must be competition entries only — not blog or advertising images. If you show the picture on a blog, or social media you must include that you are using the picture for your entry, and information about the contest must be provided such as Flickr Group Link or Hair Fair Website Link.

4. All pictures must be your own work. Any pictures reported as not the work of the submitter will be removed.

5. Only entrants of the pictures are eligible to win the prize. If more than one person is in the picture, only the owner/submitter of the picture can win. Prizes cannot and will not be shared amongst multiple avatars.
