Surreal, vivid, alien. Both the horned female covered in intricate scales and the jungle surrounding her. Even the moonlight dancing on her bare skin seems out of this world, tinting her in camouflaging tones.
Perhaps the atmosphere in this world dyes the moonlight different, stronger. Perhaps the plants themselves soak it up and reflect it on the passing creatures. Whatever the reason, this night does not hide anything in the shadows, but reveals, basks and delights in a feast of colours.
For those of you who are seduced by brilliant colour combinations, you can find these wondrous plants by Cerridwen’s Cauldron in Fantasy Faire at the moment, in Titan’s Hollow. The scaled, draco toned skins by Fallen Gods Inc. and the Erika hairstyle by Wasabi Pills can be found in Magnificat. The horns by [europa] are available in Ravenshard and the poses by c( Two Cats ) in Evensong Woods.

That’s the theme of this year’s Hair Fair Photo Contest. The rules are pretty flexible: only new pictures, hair can be any old thing or even self-made and the contest runs until June 30th. The Hair Fair itself will be in July, 14th to 29th.
I know it’s a cliche and an obvious association, but it’s such for a good reason. Flying is freedom, at least for me. Thus wings are the perfect symbol for it. I wanted a picture of flying, of long hair blowing in the wind and picked one of the Diva hairs from [ 69 ], probably not available anymore. There really should be much more editorial hairs on the grid, they’re wonderful for this kind of things.
Freedom is also about cutting ties and sailing wherever your imagination leads you. I originally wanted this one to be about cutting your hair — since sometimes it feels like I’m one of the few spokes-avatars for short hair on the grid — but what worked well as an idea looked like a beheading in the pictures. So symbolic pretty ribbon it is! The short hair is one of my favourite default ones from Waka & Yuki.

Well, possibly quite not so little. Strictly speaking also not actually birds. But definitely three avian looks showing off the new Fallen Gods Inc. skins now available in The Tides of Fantasy Faire.
The skin-line is called feathers and is further divided into hawk, raven and dove, who all have different base skin tone options as well. Not to mention the possibility of making them PG. Obviously the base skins are not PG, but it’s delightful to be able to cover the parts that need to be covered for a flight in public.
The birdy-heads are covered in feathers so in theory you could even fly around bald, if you wanted to. Obviously such thing is a no-go for Sonya who would rather fly around completely naked than without hair, but it’s still excellent thinking! All of these birds are using Teeloh-hair by Wasabi Pills. It’s a new release available in The Tides and they do come with their own hairbase layers. The birdies don’t use them since I wanted to show the scalp feathers, but rest assured: the hair has its own as well.
As for the gorgeous mesh wings, they are by [europa] and the moment I saw Alia’s new skins I knew I had to have them. The feathers demanded actual bird-like wings, not angelic back-attachment. I blame Orcsy for this, what with her constant wing flaunting. Flaunting, I tell you! <3
All the birdies fluttered about in the Ruins of Nu Orne.
