Have you been to the Fantasy Faire yet? If not, you still have some time. So far, the Faire has raised over L$6.1 million. That’s over $24,000! On that happy note, Ill show you some more things…just in case you missed them on your travels. Aikea Rieko from [The Plastik.] has a ton of items at Fantasy Faire. Because there are a lot of quality items that I don’t want you to miss, I will show some of the items, and then direct you to other blogs where they covered other parts.

Anjuna Draziira Skin with the Astral Vandariel armor, taken at  Elven Forest

There are 10 different color variations to the Draziira skins. I have on the Anjuna in the photo, and then you have Elora, Golden,Heat,Inferno, Obsidian,Oceana,Purple, Silver, and Toxic. Draziira has both men and women skin versions. You can check out RORS’ blog to see a peak at the male skin here, and Kismet did a good job in showing the 10 color variations here.

 

In the above photos, you see how the body looks like normally, with suns, and with dots. The Draziira skins have a variety of makeups, demon fades, and tattoos.

The above shows some of the varieties of the face tattoos, which are similar to that of the body. Natsumi shows the demon fades here. I really like the blueish looking one shown in the photo. The one that came with Anjuna is a blueish-gray fade – looks as if the hand and arm was frozen and/or could withstand sub-zero temperatures.

The above photos show the different eyes that come with each skin: Anjuna Glow eyes, Frost, SheThing, Sickness, Vaele Coll(Glaze), Bloodless (in gold and silver), and from the OniCollection: Cumulus Grey, Magicka Blue, and Underworld Blue.

I’ve mentioned the Vandariel armor before, and that I was wearing the Astral variety. Brandi shows a variety of the armor in her post here, and you can see how you can match the armor to the skin variations. Tannypo goes into great detail to show you all the different variations of the armor here, and as mentioned in both posts, there are HUDs to change the color of the skirt as well as the gems on the armor.

For all of you mermaids out there, The Plastik also has the Arkasia mermaid skins. RORS did great coverage on the skins here.

All of The Plastik items can be found at Evensong Woods. The Enchanted Moon Pose I have for the first photo at the beginning of the post can be found at Musa, located at Magnificat.

f34c0249a384aab0d378d34a86bdc41cFantasy Faire 2013

Hey everyone! The Fantasy Faire is here, so get ready for a spectacular magical event in Second Life! Last year, I had fun visiting the sims, as well as blogging the event. It is a pleasure to show you all a preview of what the talented designers came up with this year to help fundraise for Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.

For those who are not familiar with Fantasy Faire, here is an excerpt from the official website:

“Celebrating its fifth year, Fantasy Faire 2013 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Saturday April 20 to Sunday April 28, treat yourself to nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators come together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.”

The first item I have for you all are the Bottle Shard Necklaces from [ni.Ju], by Vitani Jun. [ni.Ju] specializes in accessories, piercings, and make-up or tattoos that are commonly influenced by fantasy, gothic lolita, androgyny, and bright colors.

Colors Orange & Ultraviolet are for RFL

[ni.Ju] has other colors, also available at Fantasy Faire. There are necklaces for men and women separately, although I could see myself wearing the men’s necklace if I needed it in a larger size.

These items can be found at Titans Hollow . Stay tuned for more coverage on Fantasy Faire 2013. Until then, happy shopping! So far, Fantasy Faire 2013 has raised over 2,014,418  L$ in 25 hours – that is AMAZING!.

SL Fantasy Faire – Part 4

So I just heard that the Fantasy Faire will be around for one more day – yay! For those who have not gone to all of the wonderful sims yet,  today will be your last chance.

My favorite sim for design was Siren’s Secret.  The strange thing about it was, even though I loved the whole underwater effect, after 5 minutes of walking around, I started to get sleepy. And it wasn’t like I was tired or anything – my friend and I had just came from The Tides, and we were fully alert. I told my friend that we had to get out of  there or else I would pass out and fall into the water. And sure enough, whatever hold the Sirens had on me disappeared as we went to the next place.

When I got back home, I saw that I had a package from Tekelili Tantalus. It said to open near water, so I went down to the beach (gotta love beachfront properties ^^ ), and opened the package. I saw a purple flash jump into the water, and next thing I knew, a strange sensation came over me. Was I… turning purple too?

A voice said that his name was P. Sailman, and he wanted to take me on a tour of his home. Hmm…did I really made it home, or did I fall into the water at Siren’s Secret?  But then on the other hand, if this fish wanted to show me his place, who was I to say no? After all, I always gave tours of my home to new guests.

As I jumped into the water, P. Sailman took me further out into the ocean, until I started to see the ocean floor change. Hey….I never saw this before, I thought. I heard a reply. That’s because you are entering my home. Wow, he can hear my thoughts! Scary…

P. Sailman explained that only fish and fish-like creatures had the ability to withstand the depths of the ocean, so he had to make me more suitable in order for me to visit him. Makes sense…hey what’s that over there, Sailman?

Even though P. Sailman showed me his home and some of his favorite places to hang out, I had to promise not to tell other people, so no photos 😦 HOWEVER…if you ever see a sailfish, befriend it. Then,  you will be able to see for yourself the mysteries that the bottom of the ocean has for you. Luckily, you can find P. Sailman’s friends at the Fantasy Faire, at the Tekeli-li! shop area.

See you again soon guys! Sailman and I are going to rest for a bit before exploring some more ^^

Note:  Everything can be found in the Sailfish avatar package (violet female or violet male) by Tekeli-li! Ocean not included.

SL Fantasy Faire 2012 – Part 3

Hello everyone! I hope by now everyone has went to the Faire at least once, just to get an idea of what’s in store. I am glad there are a lot of sims to visit, because the chances of lag decrease (as opposed to an event on 1 sim).

I decided to explore the Thor Cavern caves – wonder what I will find in these parts…

Even thought I lit a candle so I could see better, the flame kept flickering in and out. Maybe I should have taken a torch instead?

Outfit: Silk Worm: Bath Girl (also comes in sheer) by Trippy Fall
Candles: Star Journey: Forest and cream candles by Rebelmum Slade

While walking around, I accidentally fell down into a secret room – more like a landing, though.  I started to worry about how was I going to find my way out when I saw a green vine that seemed to be descending downward. After testing it to see whether it would hold up to my weight, I slowly made the decent down to….??

Nice! Someone left a pair of brown pants for me. Since it was getting cold in this cave, I needed to put on some clothing. Walking along the lower level, I started to look for supplies that I could make a fire…an exit would be even better. I could hear something further ahead. I had seen bats before in the cave, so maybe that was it. Maybe…

Pants: Silk Worm – Alley way brown by Trippy Fall

…it was a bear! Oh geez…I had heard if you try to make yourself as tall as you could and yell, the bear would get scared and run away. I was going to do that until I saw what the bear had been eating before I came. Was that a…human bone that I saw?

Needless to say that I got the heck out of that are as fast as I could before I would be the bear’s next meal. I could feel myself shiver as the temperature  dropped. What’s over there? There was a small opening to an area that seemed different from the rest of the cave. Hmm…perhaps if I tried to crawl inside, I could make it?

Tub: Star Journey Fantasy Flower tub for petites by Rebelmum Slade

Wow! Are these the famous petites that I heard so much about? They looked just like me, only miniature-sized. I bet if I tried to sit in that, all the water would splash out! I moved a bit closer….

One of them looked up and saw me. They started to leave when I begged them not to go on my account; I just had never seen anything as lovely before. That and…I was sort of lost in the caves 😦 They took pity on me and showed me how to get myself out safety.

SL Fantasy Faire 2012 – Part 2

Welcome back to the Fantasy Faire event previews! Today I will show you some skins from La Petite Morte, created by Voshie Paine. The first time that I heard of this store was at Kozmetika last year – you remember that store that has all the cool makeup from different creators?

La Petite Morte has the  francesca imp skins out for Fantasy Faire, in 5 skin colors, each with a base skin + 4 makeups each. Francesca comes with the skin (cleavage and no cleavage), color changing horns, and a tail. The shape is sold separately, but I would recommend you get it so you can get the full effect of the look. What’s your favorite shade? For me it’s a tossup between Twilight and Sunrise ^^

                                              Shades: frigid, mist, twilight

                                           Shades: midnight, sunrise

                                                    Decorative makeups

                                  Full body

Stay tuned for more items from the Fantasy Faire!

SL Fantasy Faire 2012

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!
