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.

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.
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.
You can see all the photos I took at this link
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.
