Fantasy Faire: Atea Avatars

So, remember when we talked about you heading over to the Fantasy Faire?

You wrote it down while I waited?

Awesome, we’re on the same page!  So, while I’m sure that you’ve combed the Faire for everything it has to offer and already made fantastic donations to Relay for Life, I thought I would show you two things that can be found on the Via Obscurium sim from Atea Avatars.

On the left is the Mysti Summer Faery, on the right is the Marama Female Drow (Summer Edition).

Before I had the opportunity to try on these avatars, I didn’t have much experience with having a full avatar in one package.  I had seen the option, but hadn’t seen many that were not specifically for fantasy characters and that wasn’t what I was looking for at the time.  However, now having had the opportunity to try on the creations of Atea Aeon, I have a much better appreciation for having everything together in one cohesive package.



Spring Bazaar

This is going to be picture heavy!

Lots of blogs have already covered the Spring Bazaar that started last weekend and ends soon. The Bazaar was put together with a lot of the same designers who did the Valentine’s Bazaar, and everything is under 50L again with an egg hunt (eggs were either 1L or free depending on the vendor). So, a little something for every budget!

I wanted to show some of my favorite finds. (Style notes will be added later!) Every event like this I find new things that I love to add to my inventory because the designers continue to amaze me with not just their creativity, but their attention to detail – something I think is especially important when there isn’t a prim attachment to hide a seam!

Now, I’m not a designer, but I tried to dabble a little in making one or two things only to find that it is better for everyone if I leave it up to the experts! (I’ve always been a better shopper anyway.)

Intrigue Co. has been one of my favorite stores for months, so I’m always excited to see what Katharine McGinnis has designed this time! This adorable Panda Totem shirt was in the hunt egg for 1L. To be honest, it was when I saw that this shirt was available that I dropped everything and went to the Bazaar. Not that I like pandas or anything… okay, I love pandas, and if they’re included in a design, I will definitely be looking twice, if I don’t snatch it up immediately!

She also has a rainbow shirt and drizzly weather shirt for 25L each. So cute, and they look great with jeans for an everyday look.

While I love dressing up and playing around with fashion, I’m always going to be a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl at heart, so I love finding fun t-shirts that remind me of things I had when I was younger, or that just make me smile. TUFT has a few t-shirts out, this Cupcake Cult one is in one of their eggs in the hunt (which really is just looking around, thank goodness!).

Frop! has this Kind of Crazy shirt, which more than a couple of people have pointed out might be a good warning label for me – I have no idea what they’re talking about. *whistles innocently*

This is a Fawn offered their Leda dress in blush at the Bazaar. One of the things I really like about this dress is that the top and “glitch pants” can be worn on their own as well, they’re not confined to being part of a full outfit.

Von Ducky has their Spring Time dress out – shown here in Pink and Green. I like that the dress comes with different ratings versions – PG13, R and X – very versatile. All of the skirt options are sexy, but I like having the option to be less overtly so if that’s how I’m feeling that day. Here the Pink is “R” and the Green is “PG13”. You’ll have to see for yourself what makes the other option rated “X”.

Scribble is another one of my favorite stores in SL.  I love the build of the store, and sim, and how there is a feeling of innocence in so many of the designs.  The April Showers and May Flowers jumpers definitely have that innocence.  They remind me of playtime fun, which we could all use more of in our lives.

Happy Spring! … and go check out the Spring Bazaar before it ends!
