Hair Fair 2012

On July 14th, the SL Grid is being hit with what is known as Hair Fair. For a lot of us, this is a time for amazing designers to come out with their amazing work and show us their ever-growing talent. It’s also a huge charity event for Wigs For Kids. A percentage of the sales from Hair Fair 2012 will be giving to the Wigs For Kids charity. We all hope you come out on the 14th to show your support.

To help out with the lag, there is a Hair Fair DEMO Group you can join in-world: HERE Please join. Designers will send demo packs through this group, so that you can look at the designs and try them out prior to arriving to the sim, and also help out in your shopping excursion.

Happy Hair Shopping!

Adopt a “Noob” Challenge

Remember your first days, weeks or even months in SL? Remember how you met people that helped you along the way or how you wish you had met those people!?

I want to challenge you all to reach out and help a newer resident. Show them around, use your network to introduce them to stores, places to explore and introduce them to the tons of events. I remember the first time someone told me about The Dressingroom and Fifty Linden Friday! OMG I was so happy!  :)

So go help out! And share your pictures and stories in the Flickr group:

One Voice

I was going to blog this on my blog, but I decided really that this was meant more for the community. As you all know, a member of the creator community has been having some legal issues in regards to her brand being DMCA’ed by another following creator in-world.

Gala Phoenix, owner of Curio and her statement: Posted Here

Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight these baseless claims.

The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.

Some participants include Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more.

This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.

Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you’d like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!
