Fantastical scenes

If you haven’t yet visited Fantasy Faire 2016 you have through tomorrow to do so. As I said in my first post, this event is enormous. It’s comprised of 14 sims. I showed you four in the last post. Today I am going to show you another five, and I will finish them off with another five tomorrow.

Echtra, sponsored by The Lost Unicorn Gallery, is dark, mysterious and just gorgeous. Look at the materials work in this picture. They were just stunning, and I knew I had to capture that. Please note that while there IS rain on the sim, it didn’t photograph well for me on any of the WL settings I wanted. So I added the rain you see below as an after effect. Here you’ll find a complete list of the stores located on Echtra.

Next on the tour is The Golden Delta. Sponsored by Fallen Gods Inc. this desert sim conjures up images of Ancient Egypt. I particularly fell in love with the water (I am a bit obsessed with Linden water, I must admit… probably from years of sky dwelling). When I visited The Golden Delta, I couldn’t help but think of how critical water is in a desert climate, how life and civilizations spring up around those precious resources. Check out the list of stores featured on this stunning sim here.

I probably ought to have posted Fairelands Junction in my first blog about the event. But to be honest, I wasn’t happy with the pictures I’d taken, so I wanted to go back and reshoot. I finally found one I liked. I wanted to show off the portals to the sims, because I love how through each portal you see a glimpse of what that sim looks like. While you can teleport directly to any of the sims, I highly recommend a visit to the Fairelands Junction, just because it’s such a unique gateway to the entire event. This critical sim was sponsored by Roawenwood, and you can read more about it here.

Lucentia, with its stunning, gigantic crystal was one of my favorite places. Maybe it just made me think of my own name. 😛 But for whatever reason, I loved the drama of this sim, which is sponsored by The Looking Glass. Here’s the list of stores you’ll find located on Lucentia.

Malfience is the sim at the heart of The Fairelands Quest. This is an interactive quest for Fairelands visitors, and you can learn more about it here and here. I found this sweet old woman in her cottage, and we had a lovely chat about life before Belfience became Malfience over tea (okay, not really but I’m pretending here). I’d encourage you to hurry over to do this quest. Maybe you can help this kind woman!

That’s all for now! I’ll post pics of the final five sims in the event tomorrow (or possibly later tonight)!

The Conquest

There is a new event opening at midnight, and I know some of you might be rolling your eyes and going, “another event?” But before you dismiss it out of hand, this one isn’t quite like the others because it is inspired by the wonderfully complex world of Game Of Thrones! So if you’re a GoT fan, this is definitely an event worthy of exploring. Here I am showing the beautiful weirwood saplings made by Roawenwood for this event, along with one of the stunning new skins from Glam Affair (available as a gacha) and a lovely gown from Les Encantadas.

Whispers in the weirwoods

Even if you’re not specifically a GoT fan, but love role-play, I am willing to bet you’ll find something to love at The Conquest. The Conquest is located on the Era Of Conquest role-playing sim, so if you’re interested in GoT role-play, definitely check it out. It’s an incredibly beautiful sim, and certainly worth a visit. You can also check out their website for more info.

Stormy September

Today I want to show you an adorable little shop from Roawenwood for the Home & Garden Expo. This is the “single” store version, but there are bigger versions, too. And honestly, though designed as a storefront, I think some of you more creative types out there could easily make one of these work as a living space, too. I’m calling this post and this pic Stormy September because that’s how this month has felt for me in RL… but it’s almost over and October is one of my very favorite months in the year. So I am really looking forward to putting this September behind me and moving into the heart of Autumn, my favorite season of all.

Stormy September

The Home & Garden Expo ends on Sunday, so if you haven’t been by yet, please make sure to check it out. It benefits a great cause and with 9 sims there’s really something for just about everyone!

Home & Garden Expo: Part II

Here’s the 2nd part of my Home & Garden Expo post. You can see Part 1 here.

I used the little back room of the Hope Cottage as a dining room. The dining set is from Tranquil Homes.They also have a beautiful family home, The Cloverdale, that this dining set was designed for, but it was sadly too large for my platform. The baker’s rack and honeycomb wall art are from Second Spaces, and the cute little sign is Beach Street. The paper lanterns are texture change, and they are from [DDD].

I loved this cute little table full of clutter from Shabby. The pretty chair is from Dreamscapes Decor and it looks so comfy to me that I want it in RL!

Cozy Corner H & G Expo

What Next never disappoints, and the item they released for the Home & Garden Expo is no different. This gorgeous little garden table, complete with the decor, comes in many colors. The blue is one of the donation to RFL colors.

What Next H & G Expo

This wishing well from Soul Effects actually lets you pay it. It would be a fun tip “jar” for sims or events because of that. The pretty yellow flowers are built into the piece.

SE Wishing Well H & G Expo

Roawenwood has this gorgeous set, complete with flowers, rocks, a log with multiple poses and a self-rezzing picnic for couples… and I just love the big old tree with the huge roots! It comes in a linked version, ready to be rezzed (seen here), but you also get all the pieces individually,so you can set it up however works best for your space.

The Home & Garden Expo ends on June 2nd. It’s for a great cause – Relay For Life, which raises money for the American Cancer Society, so be sure to check it out before it is over.
