A Benefit for Relay for Life
The Story Starts Now… With You!
Hello everyone! I am happy to announce that the Fantasy Faire 2012 event for Relay for Life will be starting tomorrow! I will show you a few goodies that you can get at the event, so you can start planning on what to get. You know how lag is at these events, so it’s good to have some sort of idea of how the events are set up beforehand. But first, what IS the Fantasy Faire? This is straight from the press release of the event, which I think explains nicely:
“From Saturday April 21 to Sunday April 29, 2012, thousands of Second Life residents and creators will come together to support the American Cancer Society‘s vision of a world without cancer. Nine Second Life sims will be transformed into the Fairelands, a fantasy continent created to host Fantasy Faire 2012, to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).
Fantasy Faire 2012 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. Nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer. Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from more than 130 of SL’s top Fantasy Creators, spread across nine stunning sims designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the SL destination guide.
The Fantasy Faire 2012 is made possible by the generous support of Sim and Event Sponsors: Arcanum, Booshies, Epic Toy Factory, Fallen Gods Inc., NeoStreams, Rustica, –= Solarium =–, The Looking Glass, T R I D E N T, and Vaengi Wings.”
On the Fantasy Faire website, they have a list of designers that will be on each sim, and each sim has its own theme. For instance, look at the description of this sim:
“* Devil’s Locket (by Lauren Thibaud/ Piedras Chama/ Nonna Hedges) – a small chain of islands that earned its name not only for the treacherous navigation of its waters and the amazing, but explosive, firegems that were mined from its volcanic depths”
Wow – doesn’t that give you shivers? I want to go just to see what that would look like! But let me not get ahead of myself…it’s time to show you the goodies, as promised.
The first thing I will show you is Luxury in Diamond, from ~*~Fantasia~*~ . According to the designer, Dream Resistance, Luxury is inspired by the first district from the Hunger Games. If you didn’t know already, I love this top – it covers just enough so you can show your body off without being too obvious. Combined with the collar, it makes for one decorative top. Hmm…I’m not sure where the face implant that lined the brow went – I think it got detached somewhere between photos.
The ankh earrings, bracelets, and the belly chain are from Tekeli-li, who is also at the Fantasy Faire. Can I tell you a secret? The belly chain is really a necklace – I just resized it so I could wear it lower *winks*
You can find ~*~Fantasia~*~ at the Shadow’s Claw sim, and Tekeli-li! at The Tides sim.
Fantasy Faire is also having a hunt as part of the festivities. Dagmar Haiku of Spessart made this cool skybox for it. I love the colors of the skybox – check it out:
Two distinct themes, joined together by stairs. This would be a cool backdrop for some beautiful photography, or if you wanted a place to hang with some of your closest friends – just add some furniture and you’re good to go!
Stay tuned for more previews of Fantasy Faire!
