Let’s go to Hair Fair! This event raises money for Wigs for Kids, and you can shop with confidence cos all the items have some proceeds going to the charity. I have gone to Hair Fair since forever, and it is still one of my favorite events in SL. Hair Fair runs from the 16th – 31st, so you have plenty of time to shop your favorite brands and discover some new ones. I found tons of free hair gifts and hair accessories, so even if you don’t spend a lot of money, it’s still fun to go!
See you at Hair Fair!

What do you think of when an item is called system (ex: system skin, system shoes)? In Second Life fashion terms, it can mean basic and dated. I have noticed that some skin brands have decided to call non-mesh head skins classic skins instead of system skins. This is a brilliant way to distinguish between mesh and non-mesh, without saying one type is better than the other. Classic is good, desirable, and timeless. I like that some brands still offer classic skins alongside skin appliers.
Pink Fuel just released two new classic skins called Mori and Morgana. Mori is an entirely new face, and Morgana is a classic skin release of the previously released Morgana mesh head appliers. I like Morgana on my shape, cos I can tweak it my way and make the face work for me.
Both skins comes with eyeshadows, lipsticks, blush, freckles, additional button nose, and a separate HUD with appliers for mesh mouths. I haven’t found a mesh mouth that I like, but this is a wonderful addition for people who use them in photos.
Do you still wear classic skins? Even though I wear mesh heads a lot cos they’re shiny and new, I like to keep my classic avatar updated with all the latest items since I know that it’s uniquely me.

Do you read books in Second Life? There are some authors who sell their books in the grid for the love of sharing their craft with others. I’m one of them! For The Crystal Heart Festival, I launched a new comic series dealing with magical beings, sexuality, gender, and a deadly realm. It’s called The Other World and you can actually buy a copy and read it in Second Life.
Here’s a picture of what the HUD readers look like.
You add the readers to yourself and it shows up as either the tablet or book model, depending on what you’ve chosen. The author of the book can divide up chapters for easy navigation. If you stop on a page and take the HUD off, the tablet will remember where you paused.
If you’re an author who wants to use this awesome system to publish, you can get it on the marketplace here. It’s called Book Builder Publishing System and I recommend it!
So why buy The Other World? Simply put, it’s kickass and it shows a lot of different superheroes than just your typical Perpetually Single White Cis Hetero Male archetype. We’ve got plenty of those out there. My cowriter and I brought a lot of diversity to the table on this and we know we’ll find the right readers who are hungry for it.

I received the free update of the Doll v2 skin from Pink Fuel and tried it on all the mesh heads that I have: LeLutka (Stella), LOGO (Alex), and Catwa (Jessica). I like it on both LeLutka and LOGO, but it looked odd on the Catwa head. Mochi wears it so much better on the Catwa (Aisha) head shown on her ad!
One skin does not fit all mesh heads, but I do appreciate that Pink Fuel sent out a free update so people who already owned the system skin did not have to buy new mesh head versions.

I know. I’ve been absent. I’ve been working! And boating, and relaxing, and trying not to do anything, yadda yadda… anyway. I’m back to show you an exhibit I’ve put up for SL13B, Second Life’s 13th’s birthday celebration.
I have to admit, I never took part of this or was even interested before. I think I went once a few years ago and remember feeling a bit disappointed. But this year, there’s a lot of cool exhibits to check out, especially the theme park ride at MadPea (which I rode twice) and the exhibit by Contraption (which is an awesome gargantuan statue).
So, my contribution is an exhibit where I’ve gathered all RL and digital portraits I’ve done of SL players. Some of the work I’m showing off has been painted for real and sold. Some of it were digital commissions. There’s also narration that explains everything.
You can check out my exhibit here. Oh–and there’s free art hidden around the building, so go grab it all. The exhibit posters are free too–you should save that. And if you want your own portrait, I’m having a sale right now.
See you later!
