New Hair Release

Rambles about Hair Fair 2013, Mesh Hair, and some pics of new styles at ChiChickie!

Hi there, ChiChickie! Fans – there’s been quite a gap since we last posted — rl has intervened for me and for Whisper, who’s done such a good job for the past few years of keeping the ChiChickie! Blog going.  Since she’s tied up irl, it’s up to me to get some info up here, and now seems a great time to do that! I’ve got a lot of new stuff in the store — We have a bunch of new styles that were released during Hair Fair 2013, and I just put out a new style recently!

Hair Fair was just amazing this year.  Thanks to Sasy Scarborough, Whimsy Winx, Mel Vanbeeck and the whole Hair Fair 2013 committee, the total raised for Wigs for Kids came out to be $L 4,157,251  — that blows our previous record year (last year) out of the water by well over a million lindens.  That’s just AMAZING.

20% of every sale from my kiosk went toward that total, so I am so grateful to everyone who purchased a ChiChickie! style this year.

Speaking of my Hair Fair styles – this year was my first real foray into mesh.  It took me over a year to teach myself Blender and rigging to the point where I had a style I was happy with, and I released my first mesh hair, Jacinta, back in May.  Then Hair Fair was upon us.  For a while, I struggled with various ways of making sculpts to try and stay “old school” on my construction.  Lots of customers had indicated to me that they still preferred prim construction over mesh.   So I struggled with attempts to upload my hairs, designed in Blender, as individual sculpts etc. and things just didn’t work that way.  Then the new “server side appearance” release was scheduled for 7/9 — just a few days before Hair Fair, and I thought seriously about it.. .and decided that, since all the viewers were required to be updated to accommodate the server side push by 7/9, then by default, everyone would have to have a mesh capable viewer.  So I just gave in to my own desires and went full-on MESH.  And I’m really very pleased with how my styles came out.  It was a “hella-learning curve” to get to that point, but I now prefer designing in Blender.  The controls are now second nature, and the precision with which I can model my styles really helps me to more closely realize my “vision” on a new style.

This is the beginning of a new “phase” of ChiChickie!  I am considering a total re-brand/relaunch — with a new store, a new vision, and a new name.  It’s not happening tomorrow, but that’s where I’m focusing my energies right about now.

Until that happens, I’ll continue to release new styles and put out great new stuff as I refine my mesh skills and expand my offerings.  TTFN, Li’l Chickies!  Here are some pictures of my recent styles to enjoy.  Come on over to the store and try them in person, why dontcha??

Ivy On The Run!

Did you miss the release of Ivy? A fatpack full of lovely colors making this style just too precious to pass up. Ivy is available in store now and the fatpack is still on sale for 95L until Sunday night!

My favorite part about this one are the trimmed bangs. They give her a completely sophisticated look but, also a secret firey sex appeal with that over the shoulder flowing length. Raaawwwrrrr.
