15 years

A decade and a half ago I said I do to my wonderful Dragon. It was a warm but lovely day in a park, surrounded by friends and family. A day I will never forget, and would do over again in a heart beat.

Remember the reason…

Fantasy Faire is loads of fun as always, and raises loads more money for Relay For Life. Current total is L$ 8,543,308 or $ 32,859 btw with the Faire still open till the 4th. So it’s easy to forget at times just why we are doing this.

Then Life smacks you up side the head and reminds you why.

Last year at this time, someone that is a dear friend now was informed that his dad had liver cancer, he lost him with in a week of the diagnose.

This year, over the weekend, the heavens gained a purple winged angel. A friend whose two year fight with pancreatic cancer was lost. Kali was an inspiration, a warrior and a good friend. I’ve known her for longer then I’ve been in Secondlife, we met years ago on Livejournal. She made her fight public and did not sugar coat any of it. She wanted people to see how cancer really affects you. Not the sugar coated prettied up versions you see on TV. Her fight was raw, visceral and moving, A true warrior goddess battling for her life.

I’ve been relaying in support of her fight since it started. Now, tragically, I now will be relaying in her honor and memory.

But its for her that we relay, its for my friend who lost his dad that we relay. Its for my father in law who had prostate cancer, my cousin who has breast cancer. My aunt that I lost also to pancreatic cancer years ago.

Its for everyone touched by Cancer.

Its so one day no one will ever be touched by it other then in their past family history.

Its a battle we must keep fighting.


Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Morbus – The Bard Queen’s Quest Sim

MORBUS | SLURL

Morbus by Kilik Lekvoda & Kayle Matzerath.
The Fairelands Quest: The Bard Queen’s Song will feature its thrilling adventures in the dark lands of Morbus!

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

And here we have the last sim. The Quest sim. Its pretty simple as far as past quest sims have gone. But still a grand build.
The quest will take you to each of the faire sims looking for an item and a treasure box. You CAN skip the box but don’t as that gets you a souvenir of the sim! Which are always worth it. And then at the end of the quest a flood of gifts from various creators from about the fairelands.

So, I’d say give yourself about 3 hours for the quest, mostly to find the items in the sims, some are harder then others. But on the Morbus sim itself it goes pretty quickly. And if you quest in a group it goes even faster! More people to look for the items on the sims!

The quest is 250L for the basic hud and 350L for the hud and an exclusive outfit. I am wearing part of the womans outfit below. Couldn’t get the leggings to work but the top is pretty cute! And of course ALL the linden spent goes to Relay!

You can learn more about the quest here

I will post again on Monday with a wrap up post. I Wont be around Saturday and Sunday as I got talked into going someplace for the weekend.

Anansi creator Moon and back

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. 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.

ok So. Anansi has only has 6 shops, so, I was very limited in what to show off. In the end, lack of RL funds won out so only the blogger items can be shown off. Which for stuff I can wear, means just one vendor..so here we go. All by Moon & Back!

First up is a gown called Sparkle in Blue. I really liked how the top and skirt are separate so I could adjust better for my size, as its is not fitted mesh. The pattern on the bodice is a beautiful floral fantasy as well.

Next is a gown called Elenoria, which has a lovely tapestry pattern on it.

And lastly a gown called Paisley . In a pink ..well Paisley and floral fabric

Anansi by Beq Janus & Polysail.
The Worldling Cradle — Faireland sim concept exhibition — takes place here, in the Flying Circus of Anansi.

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

And so here we have the last sim with shops on it and the second to last sim I will be blogging. And still with several days left of the faire! Go me!

Anansi is unique in all the sims in that it has the “worldling cradles” or tents with little mini scenes in them, they line the pathway up the hill to the main area, where the few shops and the circus airship is at. Where yes, performances happen as Anansi is one of the rp sims! *more info here*

I both love and hate this build. I love circuses and the steam punk bugs are amazing. But GIANT CREEPY CLOWN FACE! But I love the name…Boaty McClownface…ahaha 🙂 Just be warned if you have a clown phobia!

So many cute stores here! Lots to pick up for you land! Some great outfits! Have a look.

First up a lil fantasy number by Feyline Fashions. It’s all done with normal prims and appliers or system layers so this will work for most mesh bodies. And it comes with a whole lot, jewelry, hip scarves, boots I am not wearing…just lots to play with!

Next is a spider themed outfit by Moonlitecat Creations. Though most of the spider theme in on the shoes and wings I do not have on. But there is one on the necklace! Perfect gown for a vampire.

And the last outfit I have to show you is by The Seamstress and is a lovely blue medieval number. I particularly like the puffs on the arms.

And heres just a small amount of the rez items you can get. From left to right Gorean Sitting Platform by Doggmata, Life Crystal Cluster by Lantian/Flox, Two items by ChiaMia – Dragon wall art and Steampunk bathtub and lastly by EED two items, F Fae’s Resting and Hollow Tree with Hedgehog

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Egregore

EGREGORE | SLURL| SHOPS

Egregore  by Mayah Parx.
A fantastical thoughtform of serene darkness immersed in light, a place where expected purpose is relative and surrealism casts it shadow across the land, inhabited by egregors this fantastical place is born of the collective phantasmagoria of its people.

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

Egregore is a quirky but, a bit creepy, sim by one of my favorite sin designers, the toymaker herself Mayah Parx! Egregore has the feeling of a childs toy box scattered about the landscape, with the shops being in giant doll houses made for the giant doll like enhabatines of the sim. Other bits of toys, candy, and some of her past sims, dot the landscape. Be sure to walk on the piano keys!
