I did it. I braved the Hair Fair 2012 and managed to get into two SIMs today, the Flower and the Garden. I'm actually kind of shocked. It was tough work to get into a SIM, but once I was finally able to teleport in the lag wasn't all that bad. Many people have remarked on the lack of detail and 'prettiness' of the build this year in comparison to last year. I think this years is much more efficient, and because it is less detailed I think this helps with some of the lag.
Many people were smart to not render themselves at all. I, for one, went completely in the buff minus a full-body alpha layer. Too there were "box cars" about the SIMs for avatars to "ride" on. Rather, prim boxes to sit on and then move via the edit menu as sitting on an object makes you part of the grid rather than something in it. As the hair fair goes on, I'll be blogging about my favorite buys.
