Borrowed Mane in the Summer Rain

Hair Fair Contest 2016 - Summer Rain s

After hearing about Wigs for Kids, Bunling That Knows Letters wanted to show that one can look simply fabulous by using a borrowed mane — even if the summer rain gets it in your eyes. 

A quick picture for Hair Fair Photo Contest 2016 with the theme Whatever the Weather. In this particular case, a warm summer rain that threatens to flop the fancy wig the bunling is wearing.

Golden Gaze

It’s the golden eve, the heat of day having exhausted every living thing, the rays of sun slowly drawing out the very last pieces of focus and coherence, leaving behind only lazy lounging instinct, the primal indulgence of basking in the sun.

goldengaze3csThere’s luxury in the warmth, delicious decadence in the heat where the only reason to adorn one’s body is for decoration.

goldengaze2csThe haze shifts perception into rose-gilded illusions, into acute sensitivity of each pearl pressing against warm skin, the stark contrast of shade and sun like cooler stripes painted on the world.

goldengaze1csLuscious, opulent, intoxicated from the warmth, the delightful incoherence affecting the vision until the whole world is gold. Gold and the scent of dreams.

The corset dress with all the pearl accessories by !deviousMind and the mask by Alchemy are both available in The Secret Affair. The boots by lassitude & ennui are currently available in We Love RP and the bed by Kalopsia in Genre. The hair by EMO-tions can be acquired from Hair Fair.

Bunlings Bewildered

“Agent Aww, what was so important that the bunny signal has been lit and the whole bunny mafia has emerged out of the secret burrows and pockets? You know you’re supposed to pad in shadows.”

bb1cs“I told them that, boss, but there was no helping it. They just keep arguing!”

“We want to know what our battle cry is!”

“Bunlings Be Brave!”

“No, Burrow! Bunlings Burrow! And then we hide, see.”

bb2cs“Ah… I see. A serious matter, then. And it has to start with B, of course?”

“Of course! You don’t see Avengers gathering, now do you? Bunlings… Balance? Blossom? Brandish?”

bb3cs“Babble, because that’s what you’re doing right now. You even dragged poor phasing Nessie out and into this.”

“Banquet! And then we assault carrot fields.”

bb4cs“Fine, fine… you can all come up with a phrase each and then vote on them: raised ear yes, lowered ears no. Captain Floppy, you get to organize the ballot. Yes, you may suggest Bunlings Ballot if you wish. But until the voting is done: bounce.”

Ozimals have absolutely hilarious Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha going on, a separate gacha for heroes and villains. The bunny signal and super sekret weapon are from it as well. You can read more about these special bunlings in the Ozimals blog here. The boss bun-lady has a hairdo by Alice Project, available currently in Hair Fair. The outfit by GALLACTIC, skin by Pink Fuel, makeup and eyes by Pin Me Down and headphones-ears by Remarkable Oblivion are available in their respective main stores.

Fancy Fox

Or vixen, in this case. All about pearls and lace and ribbons and fancy things, adorable and innocent like… well, a fox. All the stories and myths are vile propaganda!

fancyfox2bsA friend of bunnies and fluffy critters, practically vegetarian. Just a piece of sushi sometimes, surely. Perhaps an ear-nibble. A friendly one.

fancyfox1bsTimes change, forests diminish, humans gain absolutely unfair advantages… what is a cunning creature to do? Live amongst the hunters, of course. Human disguise is not that big a deal for a fox, after all.

Today is Bandana Day and the last day of the Hair Fair. You can read more about it here, but it’s already a tradition to remove your hair and wear a bandana for the day. There’s a bandana booth on each of the Hair Fair sims, for example here. I couldn’t decide between my two favourites (Ohmai and Aisling), so I’m wearing both of them. Because there’s no vulpine law to stop me! The dress by Dead Dollz, the bunny plushie by Ohmai and the nails applier by Orc Inc are available in the Love Donna Flora event. The skin by Essences is from the current round of Collabor88.

Even Papercranes Dream of Flying

Stuck in a mobile, twirling slowly around the same routine every moment of their lives from the creation to destruction: same motion, same string tying them in place with no escape, with no ability to escape.

papercranes1csYet they feel the call of the sky, long for freedom so much they could taste it if they had mouths, know what it would feel like to spread their wings and fly. Know and dream.

papercranes2csFor if they were not meant to fly, why would they have wings?

The dress by SAKIDE, the papercranes by Vespertine and the nail appliers by Orc Inc are all from Love Donna Flora event. The hair and roses by Ohmai can be purchased in her booth at Hair Fair. The necklace by HANDverk is available in the current round of Zodiac.

Sea Orchid

Mermaids of tropical waters are never just blue or green tailed. They most definitely do not have pale human skin like some of their more traditional cold-water cousins. No, the tropical mermaids flourish and flaunt their colours like the local fish do.

seaorchid1csThey bloom amongst the coral reefs, flicker about near the surface, splash water with their tails at unsuspecting sailors. They are the orchids of the mermaid garden, full of strong colour combinations and surprises.

seaorchid2acsThey play, they dance, they explore. They collect random shiny things from wreckages, combine them with corals and fishbones, twine bright sea plants in their hair.

seaorchid4csThey are the sun-warmed water, the sound of friendly waves hitting the shore, the playful breeze on the surface, the current that sweeps you off your feet — or fins. They are the wavedancers, the laughter of the seas.

The original rigged mesh mermaid tails are a new release by The Muses, available in 24 different colour options. The hairdo by [Gauze] is one of their Hair Fair releases that you can find in their fair booth. The Ulani collar and hat by Zibska are a part of the The Gallery Gift Shop’s Second Anniversary. The half-mask is a group gift by Zibska.

Grapes and Cream

Ice cream, that is. Cakes. Coffee. Noms of all sort. Cocktails, milkshakes, cherries and whipped cream. There’s something surreally decadent in delicacies that also look good, like they were made to give a feast to your eyes long before the taste registers, before that first bite.

noms1bsOne could argue that the looks of food have nothing to do with their nutritional value, but I beg to differ. There’s a different level of nourishment acquired through eyes, through nose, through mind. The expectation, the anticipation, the admiration… it all increases and adds to the taste, making it all the more delicious for it.

noms2bsIt’s exactly the indulgence in several senses instead of just one that makes them taste so good, the enticing sweet things. Take the time to crave for that bite and it will be immensely more satisfying.

The cake stand, cappuccino, tea and sugar bowl by Culprit, the cocktail, parfait and soda float by [CIRCA], the flower ice cream by Retro’,  the corset by Perception, the grapes jewelry set by Weather or Not? and the fruity Slink nails by Orc Inc are all available in Food Fair. Analog Dog’s Tunnel Cake hairdo is available in their Hair Fair booth and the extra surreal lashes by [ #7 ] can be found in The Gallery Gift Shop.
