Bad Hair Day?

ASU - Better Than a Huntcover

HAIR |Hair Fair 2019 .No-Match.No_Penny – fatpack w/hairbases & hair/accessory HUDs (free)
| OUTFIT |Beyond.Laura Pink – 2 colors Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES |COCO Designs Slide Sandals – Beige Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

Worry not, Hair Fair 2019 has plenty of stylish gifts to chase those tangles away!  This year’s fair runs through September 1st, which gives even the busiest of avatars time to pop over and revel in a bit of silky goodness.

Since not many of the shopping sims I frequent are naturist friendly, I thought it might be wise to find some clothing to go along with the new coiffures.

HAIR |Hair Fair 2019 .Alli&Ali.Carthage Hair – browns HUD w/resize (free)
| OUTFIT |Black Opium.Silvana Set – fatpack/HUD Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES |COCO Designs Slide Sandals – Beige Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

On a recent visit to Scandalize, I explored the other stores sharing the sim.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that three of the stores’ groups are free to join, and offer past gifts.  That’s a whole lot of free outfits just waiting to happen.

The Silvana Set consists of the 3/4 sleeve tee and stretch pants pictured above.  The items are separates, so can easily mix and match with your existing inventory.  Best of all, the set comes with a fabulous fatpack HUD that offers solid, ombre, and patterned options.  Thanks Black Opium for such a versatile gift!

FYI:  The Carthage hairstyle’s out-of-box color is this lovely platinum blonde which will be lost to you once you use the included browns HUD.  If you’d like to keep the blonde in your inventory for wearing, simply copy the mesh and place it in a new folder safely away from the version you intend to use the color HUD with.

OUTFIT |uber...*EVERYTHING* (free) *excluding mesh body & eyes*

Uber rounds always rock, but uber birthday rounds – well those are just super cool.  Let’s talk gifts:  they are free, no group join is required, run the gamut of categories,  and are so plentiful you’ll need to enchant your shopping bag with a Capacious Extremis charm.

Uber’s 5th birthday round ends August 22nd, so you’ll need to get a wiggle on to partake in all this lovely uberlisciousness.

Though I always focus on apparel, there are loads of great decor and animation gifts to be had.  I even managed to use a gift dance and pose in the photo shoot.

Long nail lovers are going to flip for La Baguette’s Super Long mesh nail gift.  These Bento rigged beauties come with an extensive color change HUD, and are perfect for anyone wearing a gift mesh body lacking nail change options.

Here’s a closer look at Tone 2’s eyeshadow gift.  It comes with appliers and a system layer for classic avatars.

Normally I’d wax on about how much I love all of the items modeled today.  However, since the clock ticking down, I’m simply going to name off the designers that made today’s look possible:  Tone 2, MINA, NamiiChu, Mossu, Bombshell, BONDI, RAMA, Dappa, Yummy, [YA], Mangula, La Baguette, Paragon, FOXCITY.

Tick, tick, tick… Happy shopping everyone!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year to the day since Altamura’s Tommy avatar made its allspiffy debut in Bad to the Bone.  Our Tommy’s grown a little hair and gone a bit uptown since the last time we saw him, but he still cuts a fine figure.  Which is precisely why I’ve chosen him to model for the second post featuring more of L’HOMME’s 5th Anniversary gifts
All of the designers featured in today’s look generously support L’HOMME’s reader group.  So, if yesterday’s post didn’t inspire you to join, maybe today’s will.

I love the bold colors, and subtle accents in the Marcus Outfit from Meva.  Though the outfit is sized for only two particular male mesh bodies, that does not mean other bodies with an alpha system can’t also enjoy it.

NOIR’s fantastic sunglasses are definitely a “gotta have yesterday” item.  They’re unisex, cool, and come with an awesome HUD.
Guys looking for a new hairstyle simply need to pop over to Dura and join their fee free group.  Several styles are available, plus an extra look for members of L’HOMME’s reader group.
Stay epic peeps!

Pop over to Modulus to pick up this modern men’s hairstyle.  Cole is a complete fatpack sized for Catwa and Lelutka heads.  However, thanks to the built in resizer menu anyone can wear the hair.  Though Cole is free for all store visitors, it does require you to have 1 Linden in your virtual pocket.  Don’t worry, you’ll get you’ll Linden back along with this awesome gift.
