Special Faery RFL 2011

The Fantasy Faire this year has raised a fantastic donation for Relay for Life… before it ends tonight, let’s see if we can still increase the total! Cancer is something that will touch all of us at some point in our lives, and treatment has come a very long way, but not far enough. Not until a life expectancy after diagnosis is expected, not a wishful thought.

Fantasy Faire Faeries

Special edition faeries from Evie’s Closet for the Fantasy Faire 2011. They both benefit RFL and can be found in Evie’s main store (currently set in the sky). Link below, but I’m not sure they will be up after tonight (when the Fantasy Faire ends.)

More Sea Creatures…

I’ve gone completely obsessed with mermaids. Lucky for you, you get to see the products of my obsession! The ones I have for you today are different than your typical mermaids, and that’s a big part of what I find so interesting about them.

Morgaine Price of Mer-Elf Creations created this beautiful Kingyo mermaid as a RFL donation item for the Fantasy Faire. To me, it is part goldfish, part mermaid. I love the detail, and the colors. I also like that you can get a sickly add-on pack which has a tail and scales for a Kingyo that isn’t doing so well. A gentle reminder that all creatures face sickness (at least that’s what I’m seeing, I don’t speak for anyone but myself). There are tons of beautiful things available in the Mer-Elf shop, more pics are on my Flickr in case I don’t get to posting them before the Fantasy Faire ends on Sunday.

Kingyo Sickly Kingyo

Cane Sutter of Skinthesis has these incredible mermaids available at the Fantasy Faire as well. The skin and ears come as a set and are sold separately from the tail and from the eyes, so you can mix and match as you like. Personally, I love how it comes together. The skin is stunningly unique and has an otherworldly feel to it.

Mertallic Skinthesis Mertallic for RFL

In other news, the Fantasy Faire is open through Sunday, April 10th. So, GO and spend your lindens to support Relay for Life!

Fantasy Faire 2011

I was lucky enough to get to blog the Fantasy Faire again this year and one of the things that struck me was how absolutely stunning the sims are. Every time I would teleport into a new location, I would make my roommate come over and look at my screen. Eventually she just sat down – I guess she got a little tired of hearing “You have got to see this!” – but, seriously, you have GOT to come see these builds.

Not convinced? Take a look at these pictures…

And these are all without too many fancy graphics settings!

Go on – and while you’re there, check out the latest and greatest creations from some of the best designers on the grid! (More pics after the cut, and/or on my Flickr.)

Mermaid Reef

So, before I said I always wanted to be a mermaid, right? Well, I did… and there are a ton of designers at the Fantasy Faire who can make that dream come true (especially on the Sea of Mer sim).  I’m SO not done showing my favorites here.

Mermaid in Teal

One thing I had never considered, until this week, was being a fish. Still, I’m up for trying anything once, and it was really fun.

Black Lionfish

I feel like a fishy rock-star.  I like feeling like a rock star.

Blue Betta
Check out the sea lion friend I made!

Green Baim

*at Fantasy Faire 2011 on Sea of Mer sim


I’ve always wanted to be a mermaid…

I’ve always wanted to be a mermaid, swimming around under the water weightless and free… then I had a back surgery where I couldn’t move my legs and I had a much deeper appreciation for bipedalism.

Mermaid Inspiration

Lucky for me, I can still be a mermaid in Second Life. Mermaid Treasure & Boutique makes beautiful mermaid costumes to aid our imagination, and for this week you can find them at the Sea of Mer sim at the Fantasy Faire. The Faire runs until April 10th and special vendors donate directly to Relay for Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society.
