With hope in your heart



I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to wrap up my posts for this Fantasy Faire. It's easy to forget in all the fun, fantasy and shopping why we are doing this.

But Monday night, during the faire, I was told some news that made it all hit home.

A friend of mine from the Mischief Managed sim told me that they had learned the previous Friday that their father had been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. And i had to sit there, and just think, and realize, that is why we do this. So no one ever again has to be told things like that. So that one day we will find a cure. And until then people like my friend have a place to turn to for help if they need it.

It's for him and his family that we raised L$ 7,378,209 ($ 29,513) in funds. It's for people like my darling friends at OKRF that are going through breast cancer right now. It's even for my best friend's mothers dog that has cancer.

And its for my friend, Chase, that I dedicate all the posts I made this year for Fantasy Faire to. We haven't been friends long, but, in what ever way I can manage to be their for you, know I will be.

And for now, I say good by to the Faire sims, and turn my gaze to Relay Weekend in July. Where I will Relay for him, for his Father, for my family, for anyone I know who has been affected by cancer in one way or another.

Till then....

Blackmoor Creators - Arcadia, Poseidon, Senzafine and Enchantment

Click here for a list of all the stores on Blackmoor with SLURL's to their main stores I will not be posting SLURL's individually, as you can get them all at this handy link. If you need one for an item I have on that is NOT at Fantasy fair, and that will mostly be hair and poses, Ask for it! I'll be happy to tell you, but I am trying to highlight the Fantasy Faire items, or items by FF vendors only. SLURL to the sim




For the first of the creators on this the last sim I am showing you I have a fantasy outfit by Arcadia called Phuro, whole lotta skin/fur shows with this outfit so be confident in your body! I am also using a pose by Posideon called Wizard Pack 1.

Side note, the stone that says Always made me cry.....RIP Alan Rickman.




Next I have an outfit by Enchantment called Catrina, It comes with a hud to change the "skin tone" under the lace top. I just used the white one since...ya know..fur. Which would also work if your skin tone doesn't match one of the presets.



And lastly I have an outfit by Senzafine called Isilme. A gorgous gown just perfect for a lady.

And, this is now, almost the end of my Fantasy Faire posts. I'll do a wrap up tomorrow after we have an idea of the totals for the faire. I also have some thoughts I need to share.

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim - Blackmoor

Blackmoor (Lokii Violet)
Fog snakes down the gaslit streets. Footsteps echo on the cobblestone but whether friend or foe approaches it is impossible to guess. Shadows loom in every corner as the bowels of the city wake up and the workings of another moonless night begin.



And so, here we have the last of the Sims. I think next year I'll make sure to finish sim coverage the Friday before it ends instead of the DAY it ends. I blame my late start due to technical issues for this year.

Blackmoor is a lovely sim. Very forestry, the town of Blackmoor nestled into a thick woods. Streets are foggy and you get this general mysterious vibe from it all. Like you could expect to see a certain deerstalker wearing detective or an old one at any point. Be sure to go into the middle of the sim where a wall of candles sits on a pier above a pond. It's quite lovely. My favorite thing though was the three standing stones under an arbor in the main square.

Tinkers Hollow creators - Yasum, c*C*c, Analog Dog, Jenara, Epic Toy Factory and more.

First up is this stunning hooded gown by Yasum called Snow Queen. It comes with a hud to change colors or remove the gloves. Also in this store the Relay vendors have been un full brighted and made tiny so look hard!




I've got two items here for you! One is the cute lil dress by c*C*c called Leona and the other is a super long pony hair by Analog Dog named Omega. It's made of a mix of mesh and Flexi prims and is resizable.




And the last outfit I have to show you is to be picked up in two parts, as the top and pants are sold separately. Its by Jenara and is called Jemina. It would be a great outfit of a genie or harem.




And lastly of all, a small grouping of rez items. The pink tree is by Epic Toy factory and is called Weeping Candy Tree. The large green tree is by Rivendale and is called the Faerie Tree, it has, I believe poses for Petites in it, but my blogger copy wouldn't work properly for me. The unicorn is by Bad Katz and is simply called Unicorn Laying. And the pixie on a swing is by Petite Plunder and is called the same. And you can see a close up of her at this link.

Tinkers Hollow (Mayah Parx)
If you had the power to create anything you thought, what would you think? And if every thought you thunk took form, where would you store all the stuff? Welcome to Tinkers Hollow. The eclectic trappings of an unusual mind filled with everything from toys and cards to gears and cogs. Who knows what might appear?



Tinkers Hollow, is by one of my favorite SL builders, I've always loved Mayah's eclectic builds for Fantasy Faire. They are always so full of whimsy and joy. And this build is no different. There is so much to see about the sim, every where you turn you see some new little thing she just tucked here and there. And this year there is a unicorn dance circle! So precious! Love it!

You can see all my photos of this fabulous wonderland of a sim here

Breeze had a lot of Tiny, Dinkies and Petite creators on it so I don't have a lot to show you. But if you are looking for things for those kinds of avatars DO go and visit the sim asap!




First I have a lovely ballet styled dress by Tiar called SeaLady. The fluffy skirt and sleep system layer bodice is would be perfect on stage.



And lasty for outfits I have to show is is a pretty little fairy number by Mistique called Naevys . It also comes with vines for your legs but I couldn't wear them. I am also using a harp and pose by Eternal Dream called Melodic Harp. I'm such a sucker for harps.




And now I have one of two fantastic landscaping builds by Simply Shelby to show you. This one is the Summer Ruins and it comes with animations! So cool.




And this one is called Enchanted Maiden, it also comes with built in poses!

Breeze (Kayle Matzerath)
A very bright and pastel watercolored village that harnesses the wind to turn it into magical energy.



Breeze is a lovely sunny and simple build. But there is still a lot to see. The tent that holds the Sponsors store is just fabulous, as is the giant fish fountain in the middle of the sim. Look around spot little things! Enjoy the sun!

You can see all my photos of the sim at this link here

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim - Malfience

Malfience | SLURL | INFOMalfience – Hunt Sim (Rynn Verwood)
Malfience is the world for The Fairelands Quest: The Tale of Exiles.
The blessed realm of Belfience was once an idyllic home to a multitude of peoples: Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Mer, and Dragons. All shared the beauty and bounty of the land, prospering together in peace and harmony.
But the Unweaver saw their joy, and hated it, and set about to destroy it utterly.



Malfience is the quest sim for this years Faire Hunt, The Tale of Exiles * Information here * and it is SOOO worth it to do! You get so much for your 250L or 350L ! I only have photos of the sim here, I didn't take any on the quest to save the surprise. But if you need a guide, Primdolls has put up her usually extremely helpful one here and here

I haven't gotten a chance to go over all the prizes, you get your usual bits of the sims in the first part, and things from many MANY creators in the second. The one I HAVE opened was KittyCats and its a SHOULDER VERSION of the Faerie Kitty! *flails* I can has me on my shoulder!


You can see all my photos at this link








Bright Haven creators - Dream Things, Tayren's Fantasy Fashions, GSloane, Les Encantades, and KittyCatS

Click here for a list of all the stores on Bright Haven with SLURL's to their main stores I will not be posting SLURL's individually, as you can get them all at this handy link. If you need one for an item I have on that is NOT at Fantasy fair, and that will mostly be hair and poses, Ask for it! I'll be happy to tell you, but I am trying to highlight the Fantasy Faire items, or items by FF vendors only. SLURL to the sim




First up is a simple but lovely gown by G Sloane called the Millers Wife. The long sweater over a dress is perfect for playing a lower class member of a Medieval roleplay.



Next is a fun, flirty, fairy outfit by Tayren's Fantasy Fashions, called Dark Velvet Fairy. It also comes with everything for a full avatar but a skin and shape, that I am not showing here. I love the stockings it comes with.




And now here is Dream Things's Agnes gown. Again perfect for a Medieval Rp, though if you want to be a little scandalous you could not wear the system shirt and show some cleavage!



And the last gown I have for you is by Les Encantades, their Xylia gown. Which is more a breastplate and skirt then a gown. The styling would make it great for either a Valkyrie or an Amazon.



And lastly I am showing you, again, The amazing and wonderful and fantastic FairieCat by KittyCatS. It's a large sized sculpture, so you don't have to worry about feeding it. Maybe eventually they will offer these as pets! That would be fantastic!

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim - Bright Haven

Bright Haven (Kilik Lekvoda)
A fairytale market town brimming with wonder, happiness and magic. A stroll down the cobble streets might see you breaking out in song accompanied by your woodland friends.







So, at one point while exploring this bright lil town, I made some unholy squealing sounds, flailed about in my chair and scared the cat sitting on my desk. I will show you why in the photos.



The town itself, is lovely change of pace from all the darker Fantasy Faire sims, Bright colors, Pinwheels, and a happy mood just emit from the build. I loved it.



You can see all my photos of it here.










And the above photo is the reason for the squealing. The Sim sponsor, KittyCatS Relay offering is a FAIRY CAT! THAT LOOKS LIKE ME! *FLAILS*
