Ten years of hope….

And we can hope and dream that before the next ten years are up a cure is found..

This is the end of the last day of Fantasy Faire’s big Tenth Anniversary event. Started in 2008. And I’ve been blogging it since 2012, more then half of its time on the grid.

I feel so honored to be a blogger for those years. Every year I get told I am selected once again makes my heart soar. And I hope to still be able to do so for as long as the Faire is around and needed.

This year I am grateful that no one in my life has been lost or lost a love one to Cancer during the run. I still have some fighting it but they are on the winning side of their battles right now if not almost beaten it.

One day this fight will be over for EVERYONE and the Fairelands Junction will forever fade into the mist. with perhaps maybe one last hurrah as a party to celebrate the end of Cancer.

This past year was not that year, but we still dealt the Unweaver a HUGE blow with the funds raised in the time the lands where up. The extended Time in the sims have allowed the faire to collect $42,169 USD or over ELEVEN MILLION in Lindens. IN TWO WEEKS . And all of it going to build the Hope Hostel in Kenya. That’s a MASSIVE strike against Cancer. Its going to help so many people that previously could not be reached.

But I will keep hoping that a cure will be found, and keep Relaying to find it and to help those with Cancer.

Until it is found..

Fantasy Faire 2018 sim – Ardessa

Sponsored by Emerald Hurst.

Ardessa by Éclair Martinek. – Fairelands Quest: The House of Garland
Ardessa hosts this year’s Fairelands Quest: the location where all the brave adventurers will do their best to aid the Bard Queen.

All my photos of this sim can be seen at this link here

And here we have the last sim. Its a beautiful sim with so much hidden in its forests I could spend hours or days finding it all. But it is also the QUEST sim and so I was on a search for those items! I do highly recommend doing the quest. Theres a link up above and on every sim you can get a stand alone hud for 250L or one with an outfit by Silvan Moon Designs for 350L. Male and female versions. Both Hud packages give you the hud, and a shoulder version of Cheer the Dragon. which you get to keep at the end of the hunt. And besides those you get a TON of prizes for your small fee and that link doesn’t even show ALL of them.

I think this was my favorite quest to date. Did NOT see the end coming! The quest will take you to all of the fairelands, and give you a prize that matches the build, and then to Adressa for the rest..

Aside from being the quest sim it also hosts the virtual Hope Hostel Which every 500L donated to the kiosk in front will make more appear. Though I think by now it is fully built. The hostel is to represent the one that the funds raised by Fantasy Faire this year will help build. Which at the moment is $42,918.67 thats US dollars not lindens!

You have till Monday the 7th to do the quest!! It wont take to long take friend!

The ladies outfit for the quest, and Cheer on my shoulder!

Fantasy Faire 2018 sim – Aetherea – creators

Click here for a list of all the stores on Aetherea with SLURL’s to their main stores and to the sim I will not be posting SLURL’s individually, as you can get them all at this handy link. 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 exclusive items, or items by FF vendors only.

So many elegant shops here! many old favs and some new ones. And of course the Creators store Fallen gods which is one of the best fantasy skin stores out there! However, despite Alia doing his best to heal the sim, my computer is old and needs an upgrade and still didn’t like it. But that’s not the sims fault..but I only got a few shots in before I had to give up and not blog the rest of the items I could have.

I so need a new comp for next years Fantasy Faire!

Silvan Moon Designs did both of the outfits I have on for this sim. This one here is the lovely Golden Age Baroque gown. I love the fabrics and the sheer sleeves. I paired it with a necklace by On a Lark called Memorial Locket Eternal Circle and the best part of this locket is you can add a photo inside it! I didn’t but you can see a close up of it here

The second outfit. again by Silvan Moon Designs is also a baroque gown called Lady of Shalot. Its a simpler day gown style instead of the formal court gown of the other one but still quite lovely!

And lastly rez items! I WAS SO HAPPY to get some of the stunning Glass ornaments by Balderdash that you can see in the Junctions. So pretty and sparkly! I also picked up the Flying Origami Cranes by Boudoir as they are cute, and they move around in a circle when rezzed!
