Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - Opal Flight

OPAL FLIGHT | SLURL

Opal Flight  by Haveit Neox & Lilia Artis.
Opal Flight, our arts and entertainment sim,  features the art galleries and the stage for the stunning dance and particle performances.

All my photos of the sim are at this link


White paper animals above, color below. This sim is the arts sim so has no shops. But so much to see and do still! All kinds of shows and performances. The upper half is mostly in whites, to better showcase the colors of the performers. But under the water an explosion of color happens. And there is so much movement to look out for! Do take the time to explore it when there is not a show going on.

And I LOVE the octopi riding dolphins leaping out of the water..

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. Also I switch between a Slink, Maitreya or system body depending on the outfit, So please demo first! SLURL to the sim.

Got some cute stuff to show off for this sim so here we go. I also forgot to pick up the Rp pack to join into the Lillypad rp its on the right side of the frog facing it in a little room for the Lilypads. You can buy a number of the sim items in the main store for Dandelion Dreams but I forgot to pick up those as well.




First up a cute outfit by F&M [ Oblivion ] called the Impressionist Blooming and on my head is the matching Impollinating Attitude hat/hair combo. It comes with a hud with several colors for the hat, dress and hair. I may just wear this next year as my main faire exploring outfit. It's so cute!. I also have on a necklace by Zombie Suicide called the unicorn horn necklace, its also color change.




Next is an outfit by [EvelineIntheBox] called Equinox , it comes with the dress, a blindfold that did not fit me for obvious reasons, and the cute horns I have on. I love the roses on the tips.



And the last outfit I have for you is by Mistique and is called June. It is a sweet off the shoulder semi medieval number. I'm also wearing a tiara by Ashbourne & Co. called Caledon Lover's Knot Luxe, and a necklace by Home, it doesn't have a proper name but it is a pendulum necklace, there is also a matching pendulum that comes with animations and a system to give oracle predictions. Very nicely done.

Now for the rez items



Lotta stuff to show here, In the back is a treillis by Adorably Strange Wares, in front of that on the left is a fairy flower seat by Mistique, the mushrooms are by Polenth's Mushporium, and are color change. In front of the shrooms are four bottles by of potion ingredients by Candle and Cauldron and you can see a close up of them here The detailing of them is really worth it.




This house by Adorably Strange wears is called The Ourea Cottage and I love it. It's several stories and just so quirky and fun. It's got a nice tree theme through out it and you can see part of the inside here

and lasty this amazing house by Adorably Strange Wares

Mudrana  by Alrunia Ahn & Luna Barak.
Everyone in Mudrana, the land of the lilypad, praises the godfrog – the legends tell that once the godfrog falls asleep, , the pond dries out, and everything dies. The frogs of Mudrana therefore croak and sing for their god to keep it awake to preserve the world from death.

All my photos of the sim are at this link

I...love...this....sim.

It's so whimscale and HAPPY. It's a feel good sim. You just can nto help but smile when you see the giant frog statue in the middle of it. Nestled among lotus shops of pink and puple. Look around among the lilypads as you walk about and you'll spot all manner of smaller frogs as well. All sizes and colors, and some with horns or wings! Flying fish and bambool ike plants are scattered about amont the lotus. It's just a fun cute sim.

Mudrana is one of the sims hosting a Roleplay. And is the one I am trying to be involved with, though I missed the weekends goings on due to other commentments. You can learn more about it at this link

Such a wide range of things to buy here, Full avatars, Mer tails, jewelry, gorgeous gowns and . Some stuff for Toddlerdos *did I spell that right? * clothing. As well as a wide array of things to rez out Including some buildings!* Theres some things I did not pick up, like the full avatars, or the mertials. And obviously not the toddler clothing. So heres some gowns and rezable items



This gorgeous gown by Silvan Moon Designs called The Light of Sarin comes in a wide range of colors to pick from. I chose Iris, it comes with the headdress and is perfect for medieval fantasy rp.



This Amethyst gown by Callista's Closet is called Fantasia, and it comes with the tiara I am wearing. I love the swirly pattern on it and the fluttering sleeves. It does not come with the necklace, which is by Bliensen and is called Dryade, it's tiny pine cones, leaves and some gemstones, very delicate and cute.



This last gown is by Little 2 Large and you can also pick it up sized for Petite avatars. A very elegant high necked gown with floral detailing. I also have on some items from Abstract Soul, gatcha items called Call of Spirits . I forgot to get a gyazo of the way the lights shift and move about your body.

And lastly the rez items. Just none of the houses, there's even a mini castle you can get!



From Left to right I have to show you, Anteater Emporium's hallowed stump, Dragon Magick Wares's Life Is Magic Pond, Abstract Soul's Catcher of Spirit's *on the ground" Pillar of Spirits *above it* and Spyralle's Omega Dawn gate.

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - The Spirit Pool

THE SPIRIT POOL | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Lost Unicorn Gallery.

The Spirit Pool  by Kayle Matzerath.
Since the beginning of time, The Spirit Pool has served as a resting place for weary adventurers and lingering souls that are not quite yet ready to cut their ties to the physical realm. Mermaids and other seafolk use the pool for gatherings and a constant flow of visitors keep it a popular place for trading.

All my photos of the sim are at this link


There are very few times, even with as amazing and breath taking as the Fantasy Faire Sims are. That one makes me say something out loud with how jaw dropping it is.

The Spirit Pool would be one of those few sims. First time I panned into it I just had to gasp and go WOW at the screen. Seeing the ginormous sandstone goddess just appear into my view with the sun right behind her head. Awestruck. Just awestruck. The way the statues arms open wide and envelope the buildings below, its like she's saying. Welcome to the Spirit Pool, I will ease your burdens, Rest now traveler in my healing waters.


Spirit Pool is one of the sims hosting Roleplay in it. You can learn more about it at this link

I have a variety of things to show off from this sim so. So lets get to it!




Devious Mind released some special Relay colors of a few of their current outfits. I am showing off their Datura outfit here. Along with a Relay item from Eternal Dream over on Dawn's Promise. As with all deviousMind outfits its so well made. I love the rose details on the neck and back for this outfit.




Three designers shown here, and I forgot to get close ups of the jewelery. The gown is a lovely outfit with a sheer lower half by Cygnet's Dreams called Mara, On my head is a delicate tiara by Air called Mistletoe. Like all of Air's work it is so detailed and lovely. And about my neck is a necklace by Musa called Dragon Head Pendant.



MacMoragh an Gabha has two Scottish dresses up for sale, And there is a matching male version of each. I am wearing the Lady Murry gown. The flute is also a relay offering by Kei's. There is a wearable and a rez version and the wearable plays music!



And for my last outfit I have a sleek number by Vengeful Thread's. It's called Dragonborne but makes me think of Mera from DC comics. SO if you want to dress as her get this outfit!



Now I got nothing Rezable as a blogger item, and I am hording my lindens in case i need to pick up an outfit for a sim till my next payday. So I am showing off what you can buy in store by MeadowWork. Everything here is part of the sim. I may go back later and get the lions for myself. Love them. It has been such a pleasure to watch Garvie Garzo go from a nervous designer with her first Fantasy Faire, when I was her first blogger. To being part of the Fantasy Faire Build team!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - The Rose

THE ROSE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by Fallen Gods Inc.

The Rose  by Alia Baroque.
In the Garden of senses silent footsteps echo through rich vaults of opulence and decadence, searching for the perfect spot where a stolen kiss can be unseen and languid murderous thoughts hidden behind a mask. This Rose blossoms in April through your gaze that tells her how beautiful she is.

All my photos of the sim are at this link

Alia Baroque's sim for each fantasy faire is always eagerly anticipated and there is a wait list *I assume anyway* to be one of the lucky stores to have a shop on it. You'll find some well known SL brands on his sim.

This years sim makes me think of Venice Italy. Tall weathered multi storied buildings, Waterways instead of streets, statues littered all about and rooftop gardens and parks. It speaks of an elegance of a bygone era that is still managing to hang on. Calming yet, mysterious, one expects to see gondolas in the water and find all sorts of hidden areas scattered about.

I took my photos on two different days and apparently between those days Alia changed his mind on the sim Windlighting. So that's why I have two different ones, as in my photos of sims that have a windlighting I like to show it off as the creator intended for it to be seen.









Dawn's Promise Creators - The Looking Glass, Eternal Dream, Boudoir,Dream Things, Senzafine

POSES!! I FOUND A POSE STORE! I bought like everything they had and will be using them in other sims as well. The store is Eternal Dream and all the poses in this post are by them. Some have props others do not. Pose stores is one thing Fantasy Faire is lacking a lot of this year.

Anyway. Some lovely gowns, and rezable land items. In fact, I'd say 80% of the sim can be bought to take home. Love that about the Looking Glass.

Gowns first!



First up we have a fighters gown by Dream things called Soora. Its a long elegant gown, but the bracers and the chain detailing make it fit for a fighter type trying to dress up a bit. When you have materials on it also looks to be made of leather so, perfect for a fighter!



And continuing the trend of lets put Softpaw out of her comfort zone clothing wise. This floral fantasy by Boudoir, called Floral Baroque. It's not their Relay offering, which is a fun addition to their grassy furniture line that I did not grab. The skirt is sized to fit any avatar and the top and bottom are applier/system layers. The skirt could easily be paired with other more covering outfits for a splash of floral fun.



And here we have a sultry silk number by Senzafine called Aleria. You can also get this in a lighter purple then I am wearing.




And lastly here is some of the rezable items you can pick up from The Looking Glass. This is a mix of the Dawn's Promise items and items from a Gacha called In my Boho Garden. Yeah I didn't even bother temp rezing these for the photo and just plopped them down onto my land where I wanted them right off the bat.

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - Dawn’s Promise

DAWN’S PROMISE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Looking Glass.
Dawn’s Promise  by Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee.
A secret place between times where the old becomes reborn into the new. Majestic crumbling ruins dissolve into a sea of glorious foliage. A place where the lost energies of the past are converted into new life. Springs of life-giving water overflow. Flower petals and creative energy float on the breeze. This is the space between the exhale and the inhale. Full of hope and promise.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


I love this sim so much. I want to live in it. It's just a blissful, colorful, calming sim. Marcus and Sharni have scattered all sorts of cozy little nooks to rest in and enjoy the faire day with. I plan to pick up a number of them. They are so delightfully boho and fae like.

That the buildings are on what can only be described as upside down mountains adds to the magical ethereal feeling. Dozens of waterfalls spilling off of them into the water below add a calming effect. And the vine and flower covered buildings, artfully crumbling in places, just makes for a place that screams live here and be happy.









The Hill Creators - Aleutia, Jinx, Analog dog, NSP, Touryuumon, KSdesgins

Click here for a list of all the stores on The Hill 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.

Not quite as many outfits from this sim. Mostly, as if you are a tiny or a dinkie avatar wearer this is the sim you want to go to! I wear neither so I don't have any of those to blog. But GO TO THE HILL if you do! So many designers for those types of avatars!





Lets start with this gorgeous ball gown from Aleutia. This gown comes with a hud that lets you change the color of several parts to mix and match. The top is slightly sheer but the bottom is full satin and flows so nicely. I am also wearing one of two new hairs by Analog Dog for the faire, this one is called Umberon. The multi braids are fun and playful. The bunnies are part of the sim and I had to include them in the photo. SO CUTE.



Moving onto another dress, thats really more lingerie again, also by Aleutia. Again its color change but only one overall color, though you can wear it with or with out the tassels. It's very sheer, as you can tell by that you can see my belly button. But again would be good if you are the type that wears this for your sweetie. So many colors to chose from!

And in all honesty I love how this photo turned out.




And lastly I have a sweet lil milk maid type outfit, PERFECT for a Shire themed sim. It's by NSP and you can get the dress, with texture change, hair, hat and flowers for the hair! Its so adorable. I have a friend that would love this outfit so much. So gonna try to get it for her!



Now for some gacha pets by Jinx. A whole little herd of equines of various types. I'm not even showing off all the styles you can win either!




And lastly some rez items. The mushroom and the Mandela stone are by Jinx, the gazebo is by Touryuumon and the house behind them *full view at this link* is by KS Designs and is the Fairy enchanted house. They have a number of homes up and I obviously liked this one best. It has purple walls with fairies inside the two level house.

Welcome to the magical realm of the Hill. Or, as you will quickly learn, could also be called the Shire. This sim is a wonderfully sunny build that you expect to see Hobbits or a wizard pulling up in a cart at any moment. There's even a party going on! It's a super cheerful sim that just makes you happy to be in.

There are duck, goats, and bunnies, which I love. Also its a grand sim to prance about in that deer avatar from Chaddul Ro in. Whole flocks can be seen at times. That avatar has been a HUGE hit at the faire this year.

This is another of the Roleplay sims and you can learn more about it here
