|This courageous avie put her hair away for the Fair Fair.|
Her Avatar Rendering Cost was 1, and that 1 came from her avatar.

Mostly because of this blog post at Sasy Pants, the majority of attendees at the Hair Fair reduced sim load by removing all attachments, even hair. It was extraordinary to see people who would usually be loaded up with attachments and carrying an avatar rendering cost above 5000 set aside their cooler-than-thou fashionista looks and walk around bald-headed with an ARC of 1.
I’m much too vain to appear bald in front of others, but I wore my simplest, lowest prim hair and system pants and shirt and walked barefoot as Sweetie and I explored.
Had the Hair Fair’s blog not asked people to cut down their personal load on the Hair Fair sims (and had it not showed them how), the Fair would have been a disaster. Instead, even as laggy as it was from the continual presence of 50 avatars, the Fair was manageable. Kudos to the planners of the Fair, and double kudos to those less vain than I who removed their hair for the event.
