PixelDolls is having a huge sale. Every item in the sale room is only L$10. Why is this important for guys? There are several male outfits hidden along the walls. There are eyes in every color you could need on sale too. Brekke and I went on a much need L$10 shopping spree. She bought everything – skins, hair, eyes, clothes.

On July 3rd, the Hair Fair is asking us to take a day without prim hair in recognition of those children they are raising money for. On this day we are to wear bandanas instead. All over the Hair Fair there are bandanas for sale with all the money going to Locks of Love. Brekke and I felt it was important to support a cause and prior to the Hair Fair we donated a set of bandanas. Each bandana costs L$50 and ours are located on the South East sim.

Brekke and I have been busy with our summer plans but we took some time to visit the Hair Fair.   The Hair Fair opened on Saturday to much lag(take off your prims) caused by shoppers who feel the need to dress in their highest prim and ARC items to slow down all the sim to a crawl.  The build loaded quickly so I think the lag was caused by the people and not the build.  The layout is a simple chocolate road to follow so it is impossible to get lost and, unlike the 2009 Fashion Expo, the build has a clean look with no ugly sculpted roads.

Hair Fair - Finds for Men

When you arrive at the Hair Fair you can buy for L$0 a lag pack that has 4 chocolate skins(2 male, 2 female), a pair of pants, 2 shirts(1 male, 1 female), and whipped cream hair. Many of the booths have free and L$1 sample offereings and most of the full priced styles run from around L$100 to L$400. One of the purposes for this event is to raise money for Locks of Love. Each designer has at least 1 style that donates money to the charity.

The people who run the blog Fabulously Free in SL have opened up a new headquarter on the Car Wash sim. There are so many items here that it is now another good starting place for men just getting their footing in SL. Many of my favorite designers have items here like Bryce, MADesigns, and Exile Gear.   There is also a large set of items from the original Fabulously Free in SL‘s blogger, Cherlindrea Lamont, with skins, hair, clothes etc for men hidden among of the female stuff.

I have to say that I was very disappointed in the 2009 Fashion Expo. This expo is to benefit the Relay for Life but there was a problem for me – not much for the men. I have no problem donating to charities but the male fashion world was sadly represented. I would rather buy a quality item for RFL than some t-shirt with a slogan. Brekke on the other hand found many items she loved so be sure to bring your ladies.

2009 Fashion Expo - Bring Your Ladies

Three booths stood out for me: STELLAR, MADesigns, and Bleeding. Ink. Tattoo.

We already know that I am a MADesigns customer but the other two stores I am going to give more attention to when I am our shopping next. STELLAR had equal items for men and women with a variety of shirts and jeans. Bleeding. Ink. Tattoo. has black ink tattoos in many styles and designs.

In short, guys, if you are looking to donate to Relay for Life it might be better to donate to one of the kiosks directly because the offerings for us is limited. Or have your lady donate for you because she will have a variety of items to choose from.

I have to be fair and feature another great designer of male hair. Exile Gear not only has great hair for men, he also has 9 freebie male hairstyles(2 for the ladies), a few outfit with jeans and a shirt, plus if you are a member fo the update group there are always generous gifts. The average price for hair is $L250 for a pack of 6 colors so you are getting each color for under $L42. Below the stairs and on the second floor are clothes for men. Just under the stairs are jeans for $L125 a pair in a variety of colors. There is a range of full costumes on the second floor that range from $L300 to $L400.
