Hair Fair Photo Contest Prizes Poster

A reminder and some more information about the Hair Fair Photo Contest that is now taking place.

The theme is “Movies that Inspire Me“, please try and focus as much attention to the hair as possible, as this is an event for the upcoming Hair Fair, and we want all the hair to have as much attention as it deserves.

Some answers to some questions that have come up over the past two weeks –

What’s your Digits?

#120

YESYESYES omg I’ve been waiting to do this ever since I started blogging! Last year I saw Flickr flood with pictures of everyone sharing their digits, and that was around the time that I started to think “God, blogging looks like so much fun…” Of course, I could’ve just made the picture and done this on my Flickr like I’ve seen many people do, but somehow I just didn’t dare to do it. When Rose mentioned this today, however, I just couldn’t wait to get started! So here is mine, the Strawberry Singh “What’s your Digits: Proportions” challenge!

Proportions Challenge Questions:

  1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – I’ve always tried to keep my avatar as proportionate as possible. I draw irl and I love to – mainly – draw people, faces, and bodies. This requires from me that I know what I’m doing when I’m drawing, or it’ll just look awful and weird. This doesn’t mean that I claim to know everything about proportions – in fact, I hope to get a lot better with body proportions and have more of an eye for it. Whenever I edit my avatar’s body, though, I keep a picture next to it because I really don’t want to be too off.
  2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – The hands and the feet, but more like… a lot of it. Like the fact that almost nothing on the body is smooth: there are always parts that have these square edges, and I hate those. That’s why I tend to focus on the things that I /can/ get to look as smooth as possible. Examples are the outline of the eyes, the waist, hips and even ears.
  3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Kind of, yes. Now that we have mesh I think that it is much easier for people to look proportionate, especially in their torso. Though as I have read somewhere, I think on Flickr under a picture of someone who was doing this challenge as well, I think that as a human being we are always seeing people in the right proportion irl, and that the human eye just expects to see something that is soothing and looks correct.
  4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Erm, it depends. I mean, if you’re going for a human “character” or avatar I think the best you can do is to actually make it look as human as possible. Everyone should really do as they please, though.

 

  • Height: 16 (1.83cm 6′ 0″)
  • Body Fat: 0
  • Head size: 34
  • Torso Muscle: 25
  • Breast Size: 31
  • Arm length: 76
  • Hand size: 17
  • Torso length: 36
  • Love Handles: 20
  • Belly Size: 0
  • Leg Muscle: 46
  • Leg length: 87
  • Hip width: 43
  • Butt Size: 45
  • Saddle Bags: 36

So this part is not at all required but I saw this at Berry’s post and I thought it would be funny to see how mine look. And gosh… I understand why I edit my shape sometimes. These are four of my shapes, I wore different skins in them, hence why I’m wearing different skins and stuff. The first two were roleplay characters, and I think I roleplay “someone” better when I don’t look like “me” (that doesn’t mean my avatar looks like me lol, not at all). I think I’ll just give a few pointers on these shapes, ’cause I kinda feel like explaining why they look how they look!

  • The first two shapes are shorter, mainly because I roleplay (I don’t roleplay a lot anymore, sadfaise) in the roleplay sim Mischief Managed, and those characters are teen. These two were 14 and 15, I think. The second one was Asian, I like to think that I got those features right (narrower eyes, rounder face shape) I think that, for teen avatars, they have a bit too much hip… but I like curvy women and avatars, (not unnatually curvy) but I’ll get back on that.
  • The third shape really was my first main avatar. I was always roleplaying before I started blogging and… well, doing stuff other than roleplaying – so I was really having a hard time making an avatar that I really felt comfortable in. But then Glam Affair released the Amberly skin… and I felt at home! ROFL. Please don’t look at those arms too much though… :/ ew. Those are just… too damn long.
  • I think the thing that changes most about my avatar (besides the face) are the hips. If you look at the last one, which is me currently, you can see that the gap between the legs is really minimal. I don’t really… like that gap, never really have. I mean I don’t mind it, when it’s not too big, but I like it to be as small as possible in SL. A few weeks ago I really started changing my avatar a lot, and as I said, I really want the hips and waist to be RIGHT. So I changed it and changed it… But I couldn’t get that gap to look right without having my hips be all square and pointy. But I finally got it!
  • I’m really pleased with how I look right now. I looooooove this new skin from Essences and I’m waiting anxiously for the full release, I finally got my jaw and hips looking the way I want them to look, and like many other people (don’t deny it!) I just love looking at my avatar. I’m still going to wear that second shape when I’m finally going back to MM to roleplay, and because I love that shape as much as I love my current one.

I reaaaallly don’t feel like crediting every single item I used in this post, that would take up a lot of space – not to mention effort. So if you want to know what I’m wearing please send me a Flickr message or leave a comment on this post, and I will definitely get back to you!

I finally have my per-fect Essences skintone. The new skintones are just uh-may-zing. I love them, and I’ve been waiting for them for so long. I just always thought the tanner tones of the Essences skins were too red – for my liking, at least. But with this skin (a pre-release for a new skin at The Dressing Room!) and with the last release (Wednesday 2) I have a deep connection. LOL no really, this new tone Brown Sugar is amazing. Plus I’m wearing a tanning layer over it, from Essences too, which is available at Cosmetic Fair! You’ve got to at least DEMO this pre-release if you’re an Essences fan, AND if you’ve always wanted an Essences skin but didn’t like the skintones, like me! Just… check this skin out, it’s so gorgeous.

Today I went to the Alice Project sale. A lot of hairs are 50% off, which makes them about L$175 each. Now some of you might not have shopped at the Alice Project before, and may need some help with the HUD’s and everything. I’m saying this because I very much remember the first time I went shopping there, and I was very, very confused. Now you can of course buy one of the L$500 HUD’s with various pretty haircolours (which work with every hair) but you will already get a mini HUD with each hair you buy. So just go there, click on the hairs, DEMO and buy! Villena released some very cute suspender shorts-things just today and they are SO cute! You can wear it with or without the croptop that comes with it, and if you wear it with it you can change the colour and pattern on them! An example of the HUD  you get with it you can find right here. Also… aren’t you curious where that first hair is from!? I sure am!

Bandana Day Kit Poster

ALSO this! We all know that Hair Fair 2013 is slowly nearing, and we all know that this fair is especially organized for the charity Wigs For Kids. Bandana day is a part of this! This year they have their very own mesh bandana which comes with a UV map so it can easily be textured – and you can make yourself one! Just contact Sasy Scarborough, as it says on the picture above, and at the end you’ll send them back to CharitySasy String. Read more about this @ Hair Fair’s blog and their post about bandana day.

Hello my luvs. C: I’m so excited about Collabor88 this month, and about this new blog template of mine! I didn’t change much… or erh, I didn’t add much. I added a little spot with details, something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now but had NO IDEA how I was going to do that. Anyway, it’s there, and I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it this way, but we’ll see! Now on to Collabor88, again. The hair from D!va is amazing, I love it so much. Just like the tops from U.F.O, which also come in a dress version! Two for the price of one! Also, new pants @ Pumpkin and sneakers from [whatever] at SL Fashion Week! They are so so awesome, check them out.
