Hair Fair 2013 – eep

Hair Fair is open and well under way!  Spanning multiple sims, you will certainly wish to visit the official website, linked in the Hair Fair image below to find which shops are at which sims.  Or do what I did and walk around all of them!

I am loving this great style from eep!  Finally a very short male mesh timeless style.  Thus far my absolute favorite style, I likely won’t be taking it off anytime soon.  Please note the style does not come with a hairbase but you can get a full pack at the eep mainstore.  Two other male styles can also be found at the mainstore, so well worth the trip!

C88 May 2013

The 8th has arrived and a new creatively charged collabor88 has opened!  May is a month that merges from Spring to Summer, warmer weather, and visions of sunny afternoons spent at the beach.  The continually impressive Cory Edo brings to this round a gorgeous beach bungalow and decor.  I am not a beach person but this beautiful bungalow is extremely versatile, sitting on a beach or on a waterfront plateau, you will want to add this to your Second Life

With matching decor, you get a fabulous Summer color palette.  Hanging planters and antique cabinets will fill this bungalow with charm and comfort.  Check out the great life preserver decor, it hides the controls for doors and windows!  For more amazing images of the bungalow, please visit the official Trompe Loeil website.

In this interior shot, I am wearing a few items from The Mens Department May collection.  Belleza has brought a special edition of Jonas to this round of TMD.  Jonas was the first skin I purchased when I joined Second Life  so to see him back in action was a great blast to the past and a reminder of how much I have always liked this skin.  For a mere 150L, I suggest you get on over to TMD and snatch it up!

My retro shirt is from bleak who have quickly become a favorite of mine.  The pattern of this shirt was just too hard to resist and fit perfectly with my nostalgic mood.

Check out my realistic hat from DECO!  I usually do not wear baseball caps in Second Life because I have yet to find one that I like.  I’m very picky about ball caps, they can’t be too high or too big of a brim.  I like a cap that is fitted, snug and soft.  This is just that cap!

Skin Fair 2013 – BIRTH

BIRTH is offering a great new skin to the collection for Skin Fair 2013.  Vince is the newest creation from BIRTH, another exceptionally versatile skin to check out.

I love BIRTH beards, so many styles and not just the run of the mill, which make the skins very unique.  I only wish the beards were available as a tattoo layer to purchase separately to add to any dudes wardrobe.

Offering Vince in many different shades, from the palest of near white to dark Drow near jet black, the range is amazing.  You get options of hairbase or none, happy trail or none to make it more what you desire.

Aside from the beards another of my favorite features on a BIRTH skin are the eyebrows. I have thick dark eyebrows in real life, that I keep well kept, which is why when I see a skin with bushy untamed brows I will not even try it on, that’s not the case with this line of skins, the brows are just like what I like.  Vince has a nice prominent thick clean set of brows that I look forward to   wiggling at Mrs. Raynier’s derriere!

Skin Fair 2013 – NIVARO

Skin Fair 2013 is almost upon us, have you checked out the official site for information and the great list of designers offering items for the event?  You can get the scoop here or check out my prior posts:


Skin Fair 2013

NIVARO Baptiste

Nivaro brings to the Skin Fair another great addition to their skin line called Baptiste.  I have worn my Nivaro skin for a long time and no matter what happens, I always go back to it as it just me.  The new Baptiste is another look that feels great on me and will likely be my new upgrade skin for this year.

I normally wear the summertone but the springtone of Baptiste really appealed to me as it is still in the nice cinnamon skin tones that I associate with my avatar being a combination of Spanish/French Cajun.

With great definition, a wide range of skin tones and great brows, unique parted hairbase, it has all the qualities for a fantastic base skin that you can add all the awesome Nivaro beards to.

I have on a Nivaro Brando shape as well, and there will be several available for you to choose from at the Fair or in the mainstore as well.

As with my prior post, no alterations in Photoshop have been made except for putting it all in the framing I use.  There are no edits so that you can see the skin for itself, however be certain you try it on to see what it truly looks like on you.

Skin Fair 2013 Preview – FRUK

FRUK has made a name in avatar enhancements, bringing not only skins but great beards and eyebrow alternatives and shapes.

For Skin Fair 2013 FRUK is offering Jeremy, a new male skin that has major versatility.

I did not take the shots of the skin with any attachments, no fancy ears or mesh hands, that way you can see it very raw to get a feel for the core of the skin.

Absolutely no editing has been done to the images here, I put them in a frame and that is all.  Windlight settings were used from the Firestorm viewer for a little depth.  As always you are encouraged to try out demos so that you can see what it looks like on you with your shape or try the shapes FRUK has to offer.

I really like the smoothness of this skin and the subtle contours in the body.  Not overly muscular and not lacking in tone at all.  It can definitely be used for a wide array of ages and styles.  The hairbase is great with a subtle fade and short burns.

I went with a lighter tone than I usually wear on myself but it was just such a great coloring that it became my favorite right away.

When Skin Fair opens, be sure to check out all the facial hair that FRUK has to offer, they have tons!

FRUK Jeremy

A description from the FRUK about the skin follows:

This skin line has been exclusively designed for this years Skin Fair 2013. It will be available from 15th to 31st March at this event and then in Fruks flagship store when the event finishes.
