As you all know i recently mentioned that Fantasy Faire was coming, and with that in mind i had to do a picture i´ve had in my head for ages.

You see the thing with kids is they get obsessed with things, be it characters, TV shows or games, and lately my nephew´s fascination with the Puss in Boots is at it´s height, and even knowing next week he´ll be fascinated with some other character, i had to do this picture for him (he loved it by the way), and it also comes back in full circle to the start of this post, and show how enthusiastic i am about Fantasy Faire and why.

I was always more of a sci-fi person then actual Fantasy, but SL sorta of changed it for me, and i grow more and more fond of Fantasy inworld, not only because of the excellent work i see creators put out but also because i go back to being 4 years old like my nephew, and suddenly the whole world is filled with dragons, monsters, and whatever creature my mind can come up with.

This is why i get so excited about events like Fantasy Faire, they bring a little back of the old SL slogan, Your world, Your imagination.

This post is also part of a sort of self-imposed challenge, at the start of the year i did an application so people could troll me and decide what i should blog, you can find it here and troll me, just keep in mind i am slow, and this is my first time doing.

Blog as a furry!

I’m curious which is your inner animal, and how it is styled.

I´m afraid this is as close as i´ll ever be to a furry, and of course, human or not i´m always fabulous, with the right accessories, and plenty of swag, as for my inner animal, we all know it´s the lolcat, so this gorgeous avatar was just perfect.

Since i started pinning Orcsy has been amazing in helping me out, with Fifty Linden Friday pinnings and random previews for events as well as sales and promotions, and i had to make a blog post thanking her so the other Sunday we finally got to take pic for it, using some of her poses. I did mess a lot with these on photoshop just to experiment, i wanted for the pictures to be as colourful and bright as she is.

Anyways here we are in our favourite rollerskating outfits (is not unusual to see us in matching outfits, or even seeing two elys running around yard sales or hunts) and also bring you not just pics but updates with a few new boards for upcoming events: The Mens Dept. opens today and is almost pinned down, i will finish it in a few hours when i get home, Skin Fair 2013 already as a pinboard and opens on the 15th, also on the 15th starts The Boutique and i promise previews soon, and before that we have COLLABOR88 on the 8th.

Tomorrow i´ll bring you all my usual pinning of Woeful Wednesday, and don´t forget to check all the other regular events still going strong and a bunch of new additions to my Spring Fever pinboard a mix of new releases and blog post by some amazing bloggers.

See you all later and i hope this week is treating you all well.

Shops that i like part 3 – Illusions

Standard

I said i would do this bit once a week but aparently i lied because it has been a bi-weekly blog post, but i am still doing it, taking some snaps of some of my favourite shops in SL, first it was Culptrit, then lassitude & ennui and this time it´s Illusions.

Siyu Suen has been in SL since 2006, a for years she has made some of the best if not the best masks in SL, detailed a wonderfully crafted, but with the coming of mesh and it´s adoption to mask making and not only, have they become more detailed, but the possibilities are now endless, as i´ve seen from Illusion´s new mesh ear releases.

I picked this store today not just for their products tho, when i write these shops that i like blogs i try to measure the whole shopping experience and what i know about the creator, and that usually includes the shop itself, and the Illusion´s shop inworld is something to see, the huge majestic building, with the small houses down the hill, the classic bridges, the shiny water, does bring us to a small inspired Venice, perfectly fitting for the store contents, making it such a wonderful shopping experience.

So even if you´re not planning on shopping, plant at least a visit to explore the sim, and be engulfed in it´s mood, you never know you might stumble into a masquerade ball where Siyu is djing herself, and masked people great you like an old friend.

Fairies in the dust

Standard

Fairy Tales in 2012 is just ending and this is my last article on this amazing event that will certainly spark everyone´s imagination, as we travel to fairy land.

And like on the others before we talk about women´s roles in Fairy Tales and those same roles evolution, this time is for the fairies, the Fay people of old times, that used to be ugly little creatures, that would glamour (yes that was when the word was born) young men into their land thru their magic powers and offer them food so to keep them prisoners for years or centuries, they would also steal babies and do other devious things, they where powerful, to some point and incredibly feared, with kings and queens and constantly fooling the sight, and the many times the brain and heart of humans.

Slowly with time they stopped being feared and seen as cute little things nature associated and of the garden variety like if suddenly creatures who were as much feared as gods or storms became tiny birds for admiration, only later do we see them in Fairy Tales, even when these have very little Fairies at all in the fairy godfather role, where they are a poor substitute for the never existent mother, a powerless creature who basically offers advise, and who´s only role is to advance the story, and who´s only power is a move of a wand or a bag of dust.

Later on we see another twist of the fairy evolution, again thanks to Disney and mostly the image of Tinkerbell, they become miniatures, with butterfly wings and with a more infantilized look then before, or the middle aged clumsy woman who does her job only god knows how.

Oh i do miss the creatures of power of old times, instead of the more childish images of today, when Tales of the Fay where scary and of warning and very far from any form of Fairy Tales even older versions, where happy endings where rare and stories a lot more brutally honest.

So ignore my ramblings if you wish but don´t ignore this event, since there is a lot to choose from and not much time left to shop.

By the way earlier today before going out for a wonderful afternoon in the sun i wrote my first official Zombie Popcorn blog and for those interested you can find it here: I´m not a zombie but i do love popcorns.

It´s a nice day for a black wedding.

Standard

Well more like an abyss wedding, and Abyss is the name of this gorgeous Nomine wedding dress, another one in Limited edition of 12 gowns per colour, and may i say it´s quite refreshing to step out of the traditional wedding colours, into more daring territory, although i don´t believe many priests would let me walk down the aisle in it, it´s ok I´m not the marrying kind, so i don´t mind.

The darker version of the dress comes in a multiple choice of colours from dark purples and blues thru greens and reds it was a thought call on my favorite colour to be honest but the Abyss model has the perfect mix or red and black to make any groom flail and blush.

It also comes with a wide variety of layers, shoes and the perfect underwear for the perfect honeymoon, I might as well skip the wedding.

I´m also wearing one of my new favorite shops for skins, My Ugly Dorothy to me seemed perfect for this dress i´m totally falling in love with this shop and I advise to run to their shop and check if the sale is still up, as well as taking advantage of the skins of sunday, that are gorgeous and usually themed.

Also burning in my inventory was the lovely necklace from Illusions, I´ve had it waiting about for ages for the perfect outfit to use it with and i finally found it.

So here it is my choice for a black wedding, see you all later with some CHIC²

And last but not least this gorgeous gown by Illusions, I´m wearing the white version but there is a special black one just for the Faire.

The pics were taken an hour ago at one of the beautiful themed sims, Shifting Sands, built by Kayle Matzerath, one of the 9 beauties that await for the Faire doors to open and that happens tomorrow the 21st of April at noon sl time please look on their website here, for info on all the sims and the shops in them.
