Home and Garden Expo 2014, benefitting RFL of SL, opens on September 16, and runs through the 28th. Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

Relay For Life of Second Life is in its tenth season, as Second Life residents across the grid band together to raise funds for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. The funds raised go to finance cancer research. During the 2014 season, RFL of SL broke the $415,000.00 USD mark for total funds raised.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. This year’s event also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gatcha items. New rules and a new layout for HGE reduces lag and provides ample display space for each of the participants’ products.

Garden of Dreams’ dream scenes in my opinion are some of the best completely furnished skyboxes in SL. Always with an eye for detail the latest release The Atelier for Fantasy Faire does not disappoint. At 156 LI, you have a complete living space without having to sacrifice quality and ambiance to achieve it. 900L with all proceeds going to Relay for Life!

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again! Yes, Hair Fair 2013 starts tomorrow! Hair Fair is an event that raises money for the charity Wigs for Kids. Every hair at the event, has a minimum of 15% going to Wigs for kids. On the last day of Hair Fair is Bandana Day, where we remove our hair to show we care, in support of those that have lost hair, or suffer from hair loss. Every year people submit their bandanas they have made using the kits that were provided and are sold for 50L each (trans) on all 4 sims for the duration of the event. More information can be found on the official Hair Fair site.

I have included a sample, a teaser if you will, of a small selection of hairs that are available at Hair Fair this year.

Fantasy Faire 2013

One of the greatest things about Fantasy Faire is seeing all the amazing environs created to help our enjoyment of a truly wonderful event! I did my best on taking a shot of each sim that I felt best represented the overall feel of the sim. Fantasy Faire opens at noon on April 20th.
