Azzy's Adventures @ Skin Fair

Warning: if you are a shopaholic or a skin addict, do NOT go to Skin Fair!

I was doing so well. I had wandered around looking, making notes, taking demos and had narrowed down a couple dozen possibilities to 4 items I really liked. I wore a nice outfit from Designer Showcase and looked like I meant business. I had no lag at the time I went.

I went home and opened the demo boxes... nothing I couldn't live without... and then it happened!
I tried the newest Catwa Bento head, Lona. It was nice, but I didn't have to have it... until I tried it with the Belleza Catwa Exclusive skin, Callie. I was Doomed!

Skin Fair offers 85 skin, makeup, tattoo and accessory stores in a 2-sim block. My chosen head and skin were on opposite ends of the event, with the dreaded sim crossing going across between them.
When I tried to return to purchase them I couldn't tp in. The event had officially opened and was packed!

When I finally did wiggle in, I bought my skin, but I couldn't cross the simline to get to the other section.
[There's a joke there somewhere: Why did the shopper cross the simline?...] I could see people on the other side of the simline bouncing off as they tried to get to where I was. It would have worked out if we'd been able to just switch places, but that was not to be.  I wanted to cry, but I prevailed. I got my head and my skin and I'm going home to collapse! You'll just have to wait to see my new look.

I'd suggest you go do some nice shopping someplace like Designer Showcase and wait a few days to try and get into Skin Fair.
