Fantastical Adventures

If you enjoy role play or fantasy in SL, there are multiple events going on right now that you should definitely not miss! First, I want to point out Fantasy Faire because this RFL event is for a great cause (to raise money for cancer research), and it ends on Sunday! There are a LOT of sims to this event, but fortunately the organizers have created a great page on their website that will help make navigation a bit easier.

The dress I am wearing in the picture below is from Luminary. This is the RFL donation color, and the dress is named Annette. Augurer of Luminary wrote “Why I Relay” notecards and put them in each demo box. Each outfit she did has the name of someone close to her, someone who has battled cancer. These personal stories really tugged at my heart, and the dress I’m wearing was named in honor of her cousin who has twice beaten breast cancer. I think this story resonated with me because in the past three years my grandmother’s beaten not one, but two separate types of breast cancer (and also a third cancer, a rare form of lung cancer). I plan to share why I relay soon, but in the meantime, please be sure to check out this fabulous event. Luminary is located on the Hopes Horizon sim.

The beautiful table set is Senza from Pixel Mode for The Garden’s Tuscan inspired edition, which ends on the 10th.

Sustenance

Also, from The Garden is this beautiful wine platter from Ispachi. I figured you can never have too much wine, fruit and cheese! The hair you see in both of these pics is from Calico for We ❤ Role-Play.

Wine & Cheese

The Fantasy Collective’s current round has a pirate theme. It’s a lot of fun, and it gave me an excuse to go buy this awesome dress from Junbug. You’ll find the hair from Tableau Vivant at the event, as well as the table and the grog and gold (which came from the O.M.E.N/Moi collaboration item). The food is from Ginger Line’s Farmers’ Snacks set, which is available at We ❤ Role-Play. It's We Love Role-Play's first birthday, and if you've not been to this event you're definitely missing out!

When it rains, it pours…

I’ve never really understood the cliche “when it rains, it pours” because, well, sometimes when it rains, it just drizzles! Regardless, you’ll be perfectly set for rainy days if you have this adorable mudroom Second Spaces has out for The Home Show! I’m using one of Lark’s Home Show items here, the lovely rug. I thought, this rug is a good one to hide muddy footprints, with the lovely browns and the gorgeous pattern. Functional design, we call this! My home is Alouette’s Home Show release The Cordelia, which is so cute and you simply must go see.

Mudroom

Once you’ve cleaned up from dancing in puddles, you can venture into the cozy kitchen. I removed one of the doors in the Cordelia to turn it into an open room that would serve as a kitchen. Of course, I’ve seen kitchens with doors before, and a nice feature of this house is the doors stay open unless you close them, so you could leave the door on, too. My kitchen is by Follow Us for The Home Show, and includes a well stocked fridge and lots of fun poses. The pretty green hutch you can see on the right side is Second Spaces other Home Show release.

Comfy Kitchen

All that playing in the rain is bound to stir up an appetite. Fortunately, the sun’s come out just in time to light up the lovely dining table, which is the Lethbridge from Organica (and makes me want to watch Doctor Who, and if you get that reference, major geek points to you!), and is also a new release for The Home Show.

Ready for dinner

Be sure to stop by The Home Show before it’s over at the end of the month. I will have more to show you from there soon!

Spring at The Arcade

It seems that spring has arrived, at least if The Arcade designers have their say in it! You’ll find lots of things “spring” if you stop by, assuming you haven’t already.

One of my favorites is the Happy Gardener set from Pixel Mode. I love the details on this set, right down to the garden hose!

Garden Happiness

I wanted to show some of the details, particularly on two of the three rares in this set. The toolbox and the seed box are both rares. The birdhouse I just love so much (shocker, I’m sure, given my name and blog title!). The potting table is the third rare.

The Gardener's Treasures

Sway’s released this adorable little summer house, the fence set and the cute little garden gnomes as part of The Challenge recently. I thought they’d make a perfect little scene for a couple of other Arcade items. First, the gorgeous rare bicycle from Lark’s Farmer’s Market set, and also the clothesline from Tres Blah’s Spring Living set.

You can see full details on all the Arcade items using the shopping guide located here.

More Arcade from me soon! I’m still sorting through all my winnings!

Enchantment

Enchantment is a fair tale lover’s dream event. This second edition features items inspired by the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and there are so many wonderful things to be had. In this post, I will feature a few of the goodies you can grab at this event!

First up, this stunning gown from Miamai. The gorgeous red gown (appropriately) has a hood, and I love the lining detail inside the hood.

Red's Solitude

I paired this gown with the lovely Essences skin Harper, which is at The Dressing Room Fusion’s current edition. This version of Harper includes blonde brow and no brow options. Because I really love the style of the brows on this skin, I’m wearing the blonde, which I think are dark enough to work for gingery and lighter brown shades, too. This pose is also available at Enchantment, from Infiniti Poses. The Better To See You pack comes with a hud for SLink nails, naturally in several shades of red. However, here I wearing Flair nail polish.

Hands

Next up, I’ve combined Enchantment items with some items from other fantasy themed events currently happening. My gorgeous wolf is from Enchantment, and is worn as an attachment that then walks with you. It’s available in multiple colors, but I was drawn to the white. My boots are from Half+Deer, also for Enchantment. They come in multiple color options, all of which include a hud so you can customize things like the soles and laces to better suit your needs. The dress is from Sweet Poison for the Fantasy Room, and comes with a hud that includes three color options – all for just L$70, I might add. I decided that after a hunt, I’d probably be grimy, so I took to Marketplace and found some dirt tattoos from BINA. I will caution, though. In the description for these tattoos they say they are “SLink friendly.” I mistakenly took that to mean they came with appliers for SLink hands and feet, but they do not. Despite what the description says, to me it looked weird without dirt on my hands, too. So I bought Adam N Eve’s dirt, sand and blood SLink tattoo appliers. They include a hud for the nails, which is pretty cool, too!

Searching our hearts for so long

This skin is Essences’ Song. I wanted a bare skin that felt as if it had a bit of… raw nobility. Honestly, I’ll admit it. I was going for a sort of grown up Arya Stark look. And yes, I know Arya’s not a redhead. It’s called creative license, people! My dreads are from Tableau Vivant, and they include versions for both men and women. The crown is by tea.s for We Love Roleplay.

No one can tell us we're wrong

Finally, I fell in love with this dress and cardigan from Beetlebones. They come in a variety of colors, but I went for the traditional red for the cardigan and a grey print for the dress. My boots are fri.day’s Enchantment offering, and they’re crazy cute. The pose is another from Infiniti Poses’ Enchantment collection, and my hair is a recent Exile release.

Nowhere to hide

Definitely be sure to stop by Enchantment before it ends at the end of the month! Not only are all of these goodies (and more) available exclusively at the event, the event design itself is stunning.
