Bandana Day – Make a Bandana for 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 2016 that will be sold by the Hair Fair Committee exclusively.

If you need a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough or Whimsy Winx. 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 2016. After the event the bandanas will be destroyed, 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 per person please.

All finished bandanas must be in by July 6th 2016

Again thank you so much for helping us make Bandana Day and Hair Fair 2016 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 totals 2015 & Thank You

Hair Fair 2015 Thanks You

I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that supported Hair Fair 2015.

The total raised was :

Participants Donations – L$4,421,732

Bandana Sales & Kiosk Donations – L$336,586

Grand Total – L$4,758,318

Once we sell and convert to USD we will announce the total sent to Wigs for Kids.

A huge thank you to all of the Hair Stores that participated in the event…their generosity is wonderful, by creating their beautiful styles and donating to this cause, they really do make a difference to many childrens lives. The new stores, the older returning stores, all make the event memorable.

We had a smaller amount of Hair Stores this year, a lot of last minute RL issues occured, but we would like to thank all of those stores that did originally sign up, and contribute to the contest prizes, and also by paying for their booth it helps the event take place.

A big thank you to all of the Second Life Bloggers that cover the event, the ones that are in the early access group do a wonderful job of circulating the information that we need to get out to as many people as we can each year. They are also so talented, and each one has a really wonderful take on presenting the styles, discussing the event, and their excitement leading up to the opening is always so fun.

We would also like to thank all of the bloggers that covered the event without early access, numbers are limited, but it is always important to share as much as you can with your readers, when you can, as well as showing support for all the hair creators in the event… we really appreaciate everyones efforts.

Each year we have a relationship with one very special to us Linden, Dee Linden each year goes above and beyond to help us make Hair Fair a success, we adore her, and everyone that helps her help us. The Destination Guide people, support and just all the Lindens in general always make everything so much easier for us from begining to end, and we are truly thankful for that.

The team from Firestorm we would like to give a huge hug to, Jessica Lyon and her team with their Message of the Day encouraging all to attend the event, reaching thousands of people that may have not seen that the event was on, we are so grateful for that, and very thankful that they show such support to the community as a whole.

Bandana Day has been a tradition for 9 years now, and each year I am always very touched by the reasons that people participate, not only store owners, but people from all over SL that contact us to create a bandana for Bandana Day. It really helps us raise a lot more money for Wigs for Kids and is a wonderful way for the community to participate.

The people that raise donations independantly…every year people have their own parties, auctions, little events to raise donations for Wigs for Kids and then donate it into our kiosks. I would like to thank all of them for doing so, as well as all of the people that donated whatever amount they could during the event at the fair.

To all the people that visited the event, thank you sincerely for not only buying as much hair as you could manage, but also your kind words about the event, the sharing of the information with friends and family, for loggin in your alts and givintg them make overs and everything that made it a seamless event.

Lastly, I personally wish to thank Mel Vanbeeck for yet again taking on the huge task of helping create the Hair Fair build, for putting up with my crazy leading up to and during the event, and just being the rock that he is to us. He has created all our scripts, our builds, and everything else you can imagine that goes into each and every year, so we are truly blessed.

Whimsy Winx, who alongside me manages every avenue of the event, helping Designers, Bloggers, and everyone else during the event. For her work on the builds, the locations, the contests and all the ins and outs of this Fair.

I am so grateful for both of them each and every year, and also our friends that hold our hands in the months leading up to.
Thank you all.
