The Pin Critters

Standard

Note: I am no longer pinning for the Fantasy Faire Pinterest pinboards.

As you all know by now Fantasy Faire has it´s own Official Pinterest account and as you can read here on their blog I´m helping out, and tis is the huge surprise i had for you guys, and the reason you saw all these pinning critters on my flickr over the past week.

As you all may know Pinterest as become a huge part of my SL life in the last few months, and when i started using it to cover events for my personal shopping sprees, people started joining in and it sort of took a life of it´s own, I do my best to keep on top of it all, and sorry if i´m sometimes a little late but trust me if there where more hours in the day i would gladly spend them pinning.

Sothis is how Fantasy Fair Pinning will work, there are several boards on their page: One for Official announcements, one for random previews of the creators work before the Faire opens, one for each sim that will in time have available all vendor pics for that sim participants, for easy browsing and location of SLurls.

Like you all know every year a big and pretty amazing list of bloggers helps promote the event,  and their blog posts will also be featured, linking to their blogs and again not only showing the amazing items that will be available but also the imaginative combinations and ways in which they can be used in your daily SL.

Either if you´re a hardcore roleplayer or just fancy a bit of a more dramatic change.

Another board is the Faire fun where you will see not only the more humourous side of backstage pranks, but also parties, events and happenings, something that always made me smile about the Faire is te way those involved really enjoy it, and that just shows, not only on the backstage group but also on a daily basis tru the Faire´s duration.

So i leave you all with the magic creatures tat will be do the pinning of the Faire, it was fun revisiting some of my bought items from last year, and some of my favourite shops for fantasy wear, as well as dusting of my petites for some blogging, see you all soon and let Fantasy ride your thoughts for the next few weeks as we all enjoy what SL is about, Imagination.

Amblyodipsas Rosaceae

Standard

Today I have a lot of new things for you guys, events coming that i´m going to officially blog, even if i had promised myself i would cut down on official blogging, a bloggers challenge, and some more randomness.

So let´s start with the challenge shall we, sometime ago the coolest Pancake in town in her amazing Renoobed started a blogger challenge, as you know me i rarely do those, unless by accident or if i really like it, i really suck at too much writing and musing, but i had to at least give this one a try, it´s called Create a Character Challenge and you can read all about it b clicking the link.

Like i said writing is not one of my strong points at all, so the idea of creating a whole character including background for it is at best a torture, but i did try and i figured the best way to do it was heading of to Genre and see what they had new tis month, not many events cater to roleplayers or are constantly themed like this small monthly event. And when i saw this gorgeous skin from Fallen Gods and i knew i had to use it, next i still had the whole rest of the look to work on, and i reminded myself of tow things i had seen recently first the Hair from Exile i saw in this post White Tea by the lovely Sonya Marmurek, and second these petals i found in this amazing blog post Petal Explosion from Charisma Jonesford.

So i created not a character but a whole new species a mix of roses and snake who´s nature is unknown and who´s probably the reason roses have thorns, tiny as little sharp snake´s teeth, that ill surprise you with a small bite. ´m afraid this is as good as it gets as far as character backstories as i can go, i did get a new exciting look from this challenge, and went way out of my comfort zone when it comes to showing of skin, so it was certainly a time well spent and most of all my preparation for those upcoming events.

And here is the events part i promised you guys this was also my mind being constantly thinking of two events that are probably my favourites every year.

Fantasy Faire – That starts on April the 20th lasting until April the 28th, Last year i had so much fun doing this event it was crazy, I had just started blogging officially events and Fantasy Faire was one of the very first, I also had the amazing pleasure of working closely with Khyle Sion from Refined Wild and is then project for the Faire,  Paper boats in a paper sea I also see Khyle is decorating one of the sims this year and i can´t wait to see the result. By the way the Faire is still looking for bloggers and you can find the application here.

The World Goth Fair – Again another one of my favourite events happening from the 15th of May until the 30th and run by one of the best event organizers i´ve seen so far, Axi Kurmin, this year is it´s second edition and oh my have we grown so much since last year. And we can only get better and better, the amount of new shops joining the event is amazing and so is their quality, so i can´t wait for this laid back event, where i go goth for a few weeks.

And this is it my ramblings for today, just be prepared for some crazy looks around these parts as i prepare myself o dress up and go whimsical and dark. See you all laters maybe with a Pinterest update.

The Mermaids have a secret and the secret is….

Standard

Shhh.. Don´t wake up Cthulhu, and so all the mermaids tail-toe around the sleeping god as they swim around the waters of Siren´s Secret, another one of the Fantasy Faire sims this one the amazing work of  Elicio Ember also the builder of the Ruins of Nu Orne.

But the best of the sim is not only the shops, but the secrets that lie under the waters, waters filled with ancient creatures, and gods, surrounded by curious little fishes, reefs and not so curious sharks, where the mer people have their playground.

Today i wanted to experiment a few different things and not all Faire based, like this lovely skin from Glam Affair and my glitterati tail (check the warning on credits for fitting), I also had this beautiful hair from Rue i grabbed at The Crazy Hair Hunt and seemed perfect to layer on top of the Wasabi Pills Hawk2 i love. So here it is another beautiful sim and a different look, I hope no one is afraid to dip their toes, or tails in water to visit it.

Left in Ruins…

Standard

Was the once mighty city of  Nu Orne, another one of the amazing sims at Fantasy Faire, this one the work of Elicio Ember, showing a  beautiful and once grand city now covered in wonderous and strange vegetation, perfect for fairies and goblins to wonder about causing mischief.

And today i picked a few lovely items to show case, a new skin from Plastik made for the Faire and RLF, their lovely new release dress from {bilo}, my favorite new boots from lassitude & ennui, and these beautiful butterfly wings from Material Squirrel, available in normal size and petite size like all their wings, i´m also wearing the necklace from Southpaw, you will find in a box of cheapies at their Faire booth.

In the meanwhile some good news just came in thru plurk from the Fantasy Faire´s account, the Faire will extend for an extra day to make up for the downtime we suffered on Thursday, so it will still be open on the 1st of May.

Another small details and events i have failed to mention during the Faire´s duration have been, the incarceration of devious individuals by the sherif  in The Jails of the Fantasy Faire, where they are only released after the bail is payed, an effort put up by The Friends Fighting Cancer team like in previous Faires, and you can also  listen to interviews and special shopping spots on Fantasy Faire Radio.

The Genie is out of the lamp.

Standard

And she is visiting the Devil´s Locket another one of the beautiful sims of Fantasy Faire and the amazing work of Lauren Thibaud, This Arabian inspired with modern flashes of piping and a giant mechanical elephant takes to the amazing One Thousand and One Nights universe of magical carpets, genie´s, thief’s, magical jewels, and enchanted animals, all of this in one sim.

So i had to grab my petite again and try out the WorN? genie effect, i had the blue one for normal sized avatars already that was a gift in this years Twisted Hunt but i totally  needed the petite version, where i can pick and change all the effects and colours, i know the desert is not the best place for flowers, but i coudln´t resist wearing this top from evie´s closet Ariel set, besides genie´s are magical, and everything is possible in the land of magic.

So for today call me little desert flower and who knows i might grant you a wish.

The mind of a Toymaker

Standard

Is a whimsical place for sure, and you do feel like you are inside the mind of one when you visit the shop location of Mayah Parx, owner and builder of The Epic Toy factory at this years Fantasy Faire at the Jungle Bungle sim.

Mayah is already a known name The Toymaker that makes our jaws drop with all the fantasy oriented and interactive builds you can find at her shop, i still remember with glee the hunting at The Epic Toy Factory during the Steam Hunt not so long ago.

Well as you know her shop is up for and ready, and as usual we get a lovely selection of decor items for the home, most glowy and sparkly and perfect for some petite pics, even if they are so small they get lost in the grass.

I´m wearing here again some of my favorite shops also present at the Faire, This evie´s closet dress is a Faire gift, the hair again is Wasabi Pills, I then added my Material Squirrel favorite wings so far, available in petite and human size and Faire exclusives, the cute little mushroom parasol is from epic, one of the new shops i´ve found out at the faire.

And before i leave you, just some info on the MadPea organized hunt that started, as usual it works with a HUD you buy for 100L minimum donation and is named, The Fairelands Saga, come and join it for a bit of fun.

Until the next blog i say goodbye and vanish in a poof of glitter and fairy dust.

And today this adventurer brings you another sim from the Fantasy Faire,  Shadow’s Claw by Laufey Markstein, just watch out for the arrows.

And today i´m wearing Hawk2 one of Wasabi Pill´s special and Faire exclusive colours of their new release, and again lassitude & ennui´s gorgeous Wanderlust boots, that i´ve blogged before, but this time in Faire edition, this gorgeous armour is another exclusive this time by Bare Rose.

In other news I am also showcasing some more poses from Pose Fair, that is still going on strong even if this year is their last edition, here I used some Weather or not ones, from a wonderful set I hope to use more of later, and Y’s Art&Poses.

I have also heard about an upcoming hunt during the Fantasy Faire, and starting very soon, i´ll soon update you all on that. So have fun exploring folks, but please watch out for those arrows, or get some knee protective gear at he Faire, I´m sure you will find some easily.

Dear Prudence

Standard

And again another Fantasy Faire sim this time Meandervale, the wonderful work of Marcus Inkpen and  Sharni Azalee who´s imagination provided a simple and beautiful landscape of dreams, where the windmills where half transformed into butterflies, like a beautiful magical dream.

I wanted a different look for these pics also and even if the dress is not from the Faire but from another event the Cupcake Tea Party at the Cupcake sim it seemed certainly appropriate for this location and it matched so well the special new releases for the faire from Wasabi Pills and lassitude & ennui. The Poses came from Pose Fair where phresh. had on sale all of last year poses, so even if a little dated they are still awesome work at a more than reasonable price.

I ended up feeling like a different version of Alice in Wonderland, like a child playing in a field of dreams. And I couldn´t help singing Dear Prudence while I took these pics.

…Dear Prudence, open up your eyes
Dear Prudence, see the sunny skies
The wind is low the birds will sing
That you are part of everything…
