Hair Fair 2009

Hair Fair 2009 opened this weekend in Second Life. Hair Fair is an annual event that raises money for Locks of Love, a charity that provides wigs to children suffering from medical hair loss. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll mention that I helped with the theme, textures and freebies for one of the booths — but I won’t say which one, because you should visit them all. Lag is a beast at Hair Fair, so knocking all graphics settings down to minimum and detaching all your lovely prim accessories and scripted AOs is a must. In addition to helping charity, this is an opportunity to see the state-of-the-art in SL hair design (and given the limitations of the engine, the ingenuity and creativity of the designers is pretty amazing). The show ends July 4, so don’t miss out!

Pictures of Annan

One of my many faces in the virtual world is that of Norith Westland, soundman, composer and photographer for Annan Dreamscape, one of Second Life’s premier vocalists. This is my favorite shot of her, taken live during a concert. For more, check out my photostream. And to see her performance schedule, check out the calendar at ~Dreamscape~.
