Fond Farewell and Native Looks

Fond Farewell - Native Mystic

I apologize for this post being late for the hairs. RL and our internet seem to be against me lately. But here they are! Adoness, once again the hairs are gorgeous! And pairing them with Lumae’s newest fantasy skin tones, I had to do a couple different characters. The dress they are wearing is one that I am working on and will be releasing on my kid avi in one of her new stores coming soon (Curtain Call). I used the hud to tint the colors to better match the skins an hair but am thinking I will need to add some fantasy colors now.

Fond Farewell - Lion TamerSo, I’ve been putting off this decision for a while, because I genuinely love making my fantasy looks and stories. However with this no longer being my main avatar and me starting two small clothing stores and a dance team along side SL kid school and RL work. I’m finding myself so busy I don’t notice I haven’t blogged in a long time until I see a sponsor pack go out. So for now I am going to put my blog on hold until such time that I have more free time or until I miss it so much I make more time for it consistently.

Fond Farewell - Lion Tamer CloserI will continue taking photos of course, but they will be more family and dance orientated. I’m not sure I will upload them or not, if I do they will be posted on my kid avi’s flickr. If I do some that fit in with Lilli’s fantasy story / artsy photos I will post them on her flickr. 🙂

Fond Farewell - Rain Dance

Thank you to all of you who have followed me, every view was a lovely surprise and the comments even more so! ♥ I won’t be deleting this blog, because I have a feeling I will miss it tremendously and come back to it when I can.

Better look at Lumae’s six new fantasy tones!

Hedgehog Stew at Echtra

Echtra SimN’Mara looked around the wet, dreary area she had entered. After the bright heat of the Golden Delta it was a shocking abrupt change. She saw a sign in one of the first shops advertising rain bubble charms. She smiled and went inside to dry off, change clothing, and purchase one of the charms. When she left the shop she was once again dry with a bubble surrounding her and protecting her from the rain. She stopped and looked at a statue of a boy with glowing foot prints in front of it. She tilted her head and wondered what the meaning of them was. (( There is a hud on the sim for the Echtra experience, I believe those are part of that.))
Echtra Shops
As she wandered this newest small town of shops she smiled at the people and creatures she saw. A small group of sheep gathered near a torch in a small alley bleated at her as she passed. She saw a fire-pit ahead with a few tiny hedgehogs sitting on logs. There was a giant cauldron hanging over the fire filled with a delicious smelling stew in it. The hedgehogs looked up as she stopped to peer in at the stew.
Echtra Rain
The smallest hedgehog smiled and said, “Would you like some? We made a big batch to sell to faire goers.”
She smiled down at him and pulled out a coin. “I would love some, it smells delicious.”
The bigger of the hedgehogs grunted and picking up a bowl he ladled some of the stew into it and handed it to her. He waved a hand at the empty tree stumps. “Please sit and enjoy. Our small town pulls the heat right from you humans it seems.”
Echtra Hedgehog Soup
She sat and after a few bites said, “Ah, not so for me, I am not human but statue.”
“Statue??” The smaller hedgehog squeaked. “But you walk around! You look alive to me.”
She nodded. “I am enchanted to appear alive. Much of the time I slumber in my natural stone.” She finished the last few bites of the soup before continuing. “My good friend Bright Horn wakes me every so often when there is need or she believes I will be interested in something going on, such as this faire.” She grinned and stood, leaning down to place the bowl near a small pile of other used ones. “Thank you for the soup. It is very tasty.” She bowed her head to them and continued down the road.
Echtra Fairy Statue
She reached the end of the road and went through the gates of the town out onto an open plain. In the distance she saw a small henge and intrigued headed towards it. She could feel the pulses of magic coming from it. As she approaches she saw a small golden light flitting within the henge. Coming to a stop just outside the circle of stones she watched captivated as a small gold fairy flew around inside of it. Watching close she realized it was an enchanted statue much like she. Only instead of being self aware it merely flew in a predetermined pattern inside the magic of the stone henge. She watched for a while mesmerized before she pulled out her teleporting scroll and randomly chose her next destination.

Otherworldly Faire

N’Mara pulled out the teleport scroll a merchant had given her and scanned the list for the next place to visit. “Otherworld hmm?” She read the short incantation and blinked at the flashing light. When she opened her eyes she was in a huge cavern with open sides. All around were giant mushrooms, glowing grasses and huge crystals. She didn’t see any stores but saw people wandering around and some in small alcoves with benches.

Otherworld SimShe followed the path a ways and saw a small crowd gathered. As she approached she saw that they were watching a fairy dance. Her pink coloring stood out among the blues and greens and she was lit by a purple hued sunbeam. It had been a long time since she had seen a fae so she stayed and watched the graceful dance. The fairy finished and gave a curtsy to her audience.

“I hope you enjoyed my show, faire travelers. Please consider dropping donations in the various kiosks as the money is going to help the sick.” She gave another curtsy before waving and flying off into the cavern.

Otherworld Fairy

N’Mara smiled and pulled a few of the coins Bright Horn had given her from the pouch and put them in a kiosk. She saw some stairs and decided to see what was above the giant cavern. Looking up she saw that it was a really long climb. About halfway up there was a big platform with seating and some signs. She went in to investigate and discovered that the reason there were no shops here was because it was a sim for literary events. After a brief pause on the platform reading a few of the signs she continued up the stairs. Finally she reached the top and stood astonished.

Otherworld LitFest

There was not only a huge platform over the cavern below, there was a gigantic tree towering above it. It was so tall she couldn’t see the top of it among the clouds. There were more lush plants and small ponds and gazebos around the platform. She wandered around stopping now and them to take in the glowing plants and crystals. There were so many varieties she’d never seen before.

Otherworld Top View

She came upon a small pond with some columns and spotted a harp. A harp! She immediately went to it and ran her fingers over the string. The soft sound was wonderful. It had been ages since she had been able to play and she could help sitting in what was one of the most tranquil spots she had ever come across and playing a soft lilting tune. She closed her eyes as she played, relaxing and improvising the tune to match the noises of the nature around her. When she stopped her eyes opened in surprise at the clapping coming from in front of her. There was a small crowd of people smiling at her. She smiled and stood giving a small curtsy and after a moment told them what the fairy had earlier. She was happy to see many did indeed drop coins in a nearby kiosk. She gave the harp one last look and continued her exploring.Otherworld NMara

Winter Queen

#35 Winter Queen Full

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days, the weather was really bad here which makes our wifi almost non-existant. Not to mention I got one of my lovely migraines. But! I am back and got a new look for you. Two of my sponsors, Lumae and Storybook, are at the new round of We ❤ Roleplay, which is celebrating its second birthday! So there are lots of goodies out, some free and some cheap, plus all of the normal lovely new releases discounted during the event. I also have a new sponsor! I was accepted to blog for Something New Poses. 🙂 So they are featured in this post as well. I chose one of their older releases so it would fit the outfit better but look forward to seeing some new stuff from them in upcoming posts.

#35 Winter Queen

I have been discovering new features of the updated Firestorm this week, when my net was working well enough. One of the cool new things is they updated the snapshot feature and options. They even have photo filters! I used the Spotlight feature on the close-up to give it the vignetted look.

Also I may be changing my blog look. I was reviewed a week or so ago by Canary Beck on her post about search engines and blogs. She had some good points about my blog design not being search engine friendly. However the main reason I am thinking of changing is I am concerned about the ease of navigation. I love being able to see all my photos displayed together like this, but I know it was difficult for me to figure out the navigation at first and want to see if I can find a template that I like but will also display my sponsors and blogroll more visibly. I would love to hear opinions from readers about this as well. 🙂

Tangleshimmer Grove and Faire’s End

#33 Tangleshimmer Grove

Ylani wandered the sparcely wooded Tangleshimmer Grove area of the Faire. She was sad to know that it was soon to be gone. Already she looked forward to the next year’s faire.

Great news! The Fantasy Faire raised L$ 7,680,791 which converts to $ 30,723 for Relay for Life this year! And some shops are putting their RFL vendors and items in their stores so be on the lookout! If you want to see for yourself what the totals are and what other groups are raising as well here is the link.

Also while the faire might be over, I still have a lot of items I didn’t get a chance to blog yet, as well as all the hunt gifts I still need to open, so you will likely be seeing those in future posts.

Sorry for the short post. My head isn’t playing nice tonight. 😦

Ichi-Go Ichi-E (Part 2)

#25 Ichi go Ichi e

Ylani wandered around Ichi-go Ichi-e purchasing things here and there. She saw some huge insects and butterflies flying around. She also saw every race from human to dragon to animal kin walking around and shopping.

#26 Ichi go Ichi e P2 Dress

She stopped over near the water and had a short conversation with a mermaid. Apparently the faire had a lot of underwater places to explore. She expressed her desire to explore those areas as well and the mermaid called some sprites over to cast a spell on her. The mermaid assured her it would be temporary and hopefully when it wore off she would return to normal.

#26 Ichi go Ichi e P2 Close

Ylani nodded and stood still to let the sprites cast their magic.#26 Ichi go Ichi e P2 Fire Sprites


All of the shops featured in this post are one’s I had not heard of or bought from before the Fantasy Faire. You all have such lovely items! That’s is my favorite thing about the Faire each year, I find all these great stores I might not have found otherwise.

YoZakura

#24 YoZakura

Ylani wandered across the bridge leaving Wildhaven Marsh, glancing over at a sign which declared she was now entering a place called YoZakura. Not far from the bridge was a group of japanese style shops. Seeing a cute short kimono outfit she ducked in and picked one out. She had never been able to stand the long kimonos that hindered her movement. But this short one, she went into a curtained off area and changed into it, yes this short one was perfect. She bought it and wore it out of the store.

“Miss, oh miss.” A voice called out to Ylani and she looked over to see a fairy sitting at a table with paints. The fairy smiled and waved her over saying, “You should let me paint your face to match your pretty kimono. The donations go directly to Relay for Life.”

Ylani cocked her head and sat in front of the fairy with a small nod. The fairy picked up a wet cloth and gently wiped her face to clean it off. As she started her painting Ylani asked, “Relay for Life donations? What is that?”

“Why the whole reason for this lovely faire! Have you really not heard what the special sales proceeds go to?” Ylani shook her head and the fairy explained as she painted her face. “Well the money goes into a charity which then uses it to help people fighting various diseases called cancers. They are awful diseases and many die from them. So each year we have this huge faire and earn money for the charity. There are also lots of performances and a quest!”

“How do I know which items donate the proceeds to the charity?”

The fairy finished her face painting and smiled, “Oh that’s easy! They will have a purple sign that lets you know.”

Ylani smiled back and went to stand but the fairy held up a hand to stop her and asked, “Would you allow me to cast a small glamour on you? Just to temporarily change your hair and wings. Oh and hide the horns. It will match your kimono nicely.”

Ylani hesitated and then shrugged. “Sure, why not. Its fun to look different every once in a while.”

The fairy clapped and mumbled a quick enchantment waving her now glowing hands at Ylani. “There we go! Would you like to see?” She held up a small mirror for Ylani to look in. Ylani smiled and thanked the fairy before wandering off to peruse more shops. Anytime she saw a sign with purple stating that item was a donation one she would stop and consider it, all too often she would purchase it as well. At least the money is going to a good cause, she told herself.

#24 YoZakura Dragon

As she wandered she heard a loud rumbling like thunder. Her eyes immediately drawn to the skyline where she sees an ancient dragon curled around a mountain in the sky. She turned and walked the opposite direction, she did not intend to challenge him in any way.

#24 YoZakura Dancing

Soon she reached a small pond with sakura trees in full bloom around it. Instantly some sakura fairies came and began to dance around her. She laughed and couldn’t help but join them. They danced and laughed for some time as petals fell around them, suddenly a goblin jumped out from the forest canopy bed nearby growling angrily at them. the fairies scattered and Ylani didn’t have time to do more than open her mouth to apologize before she was hit with his magic and fell to the ground unconscious.

Fantasy Faire Info and Sims

A quick note – Sorry for the length of this post, it kind of got away from me. 🙂 However I did also want to bring the Relay for Life aspect in since that is the main focus of this wonderful faire. Hope you are enjoying the story so far! Sorry i don’t have every sim hot linked on here, however the lovely FF site I linked has not only the slurls of each sim but a picture and short description.
