Click here for a list of all the stores on Sylvan of Spells 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.

All of the dress designers I have for this sim are new to me so I'm going alphabetical. All items are their stores Relay vendor offering.

This lovely gown by BlueMoon enterprise is called Lady Grace, and it is such a decadent gown. The creator stated that she tries to use period correct fabrics and trims,and it shows in the lushness of the tapestry pattern on this gown. And I love the muted colors.

This glittery dress from Tayren's Fantasy Fashions, called GlitterFae, is actually part of a complete fairy Avatar. I only wore the Dress, necklace, wreath and hair for this shot, but it also comes with everything you need for an out of the box avatar. Skin, eyes, shoes, wings, shape, and more!

The Gypsy Queen dress from Gypsy wolf is quite fun in its understated browns and grays colors. And it comes with a jingle coin belt. I love the patterns on the fabrics and the sleeves.

This sexy gown is by Independent Objects and is called Queen of Lunimba. The jewelry, also under the same name, is sold separately. I like the use of materials on the bra. The Dagger at my hip is also available, it's by Snoodle's and is called Ornate Throwing Dagger. You're able to draw and use in in Role play. Very well done.

The last dress I have for you is by TempT and is their Niobe Fae Dress. An adorable off the shoulder fairy gown. I love the textures on the silk look lower half and the embroidery on the top.

And now for two rezable items you can buy.

On the right is Gypsy Wolf's Gypsy Rest Tent. Inside is a comfy pile of pillows and some refreshments.

So now that you have some ideas on what you can pick up, head over to Sylvan of Spells and get to shopping!

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim - Sylvan of Spells

Taken from the web page

SYLVAN OF SPELLS | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Merchants of Dreams.

Sylvan of Spells (by Sweetgwendoline Bailey/Eldowyn Inshan)Enchanted grove where our stories are collected and nurtured by mystic librarians. Books, scrolls and parchment litter the ground, the debris of the Forest of Enlightenment.



Oh where to start on this sim. It's got so many little things to spot. Elemental trees, giant snakes, book Moths, paper ships, and books, Books EVERYEWHERE! Which is fitting as this is the sim that the new Literary Festival is being held on. Oh and Tuesday is a Terry Practett Festivle, In honor of what would have been his 67th birthday. I shall be going to that for sure!

There is also a small sim specific mini hunt. Look for the giant book near each of the entrances for directions. It's very simple and the prizes are cute.

As for the sim, wow the dual designers really outdid themselves. It's such a whimcisal place. And so many things to spot. I love the Book Moths that fly above the Storytelling area. And the texture animation on the giant snake will give you the willies. Critters can be spoted in the woods, you just have to look about. And the shops are lovely wooden things with books as parts of the building.

Oh and remember to look up, I almost missed a grand old tree in the middle!

I love it!

This cute flower like dress is by ~BLD~ and called the Tulip dress, I'm wearing the Relay color called "Hope". It's a fun poofy dress with materials in use on it so it has a great look to it. Around my neck is another relay offering by a store called Zyn and it is their Elven Chakrah Amulet. A delicate necklace with stones in the colors of the chakrahs on it. Very pretty.



Click for bigger


And here we have a gown by Figment! Called Cynosure Dress. It is not a relay offering though it should be! I can't remember what they are offering but I liked this better. Or I needed more dresses to show off and picked that one.ANYWAY. I love how the petals lay and the gold on them. The necklace I am wearing is a relay item by Dragon Magick Wares called Mystical Necklace. It's a simple two toned crystal point. Also the hair is another of Wasabi Pill Relay hairs, called Jasmine. It showed up in my inventory after I had taken the photos on Odyssey so it ended up here..



Click for bigger


And lastly for the gowns I have this stunning number by PoshTale called Cequi. It comes with a hud to change colors, the bracers and a collar. I chose the Relay appropriate coloring of Purple, but there are a number of others.

And now we go onto some Home and Garden items you can pick up on Ichi-go Ichi-e



Click for bigger


In this shot are items by three vendors, the Mystic Meadow" Garden Gazebo and Mystic Meadow" Garden Pond- are by [CIRCA] . The lovely tea set is by Voidheart and has the Fantasy faire logo on it! *close up photo here* And the purple mushrooms are by Polenth's Mushporium

Next up is a tiny but lovely little house by Dragon Magick Wares called the Temple Of The Moon. it would make a good little vacation cottage someplace.



Click for bigger


And lastly, You can take home part of the sim! The Looking Glass has four items up for sale in Relay vendors. Hearts like China Roses, Sakura Lovers Tree, Sakura Meditation Pod and Bullrushes, and Woodlands Tea Settings. I don't know about you but I LOVE being able to take a part of the Fairelands home with me like this!

So, now get off to the dreamy sim of Ichi-go Ichi-e and do some Relay Shopping!

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim - Ichi-go Ichi-e

Taken from the webpage

ICHI-GO ICHI-E | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by The Looking Glass.

Ichi-go Ichi-e (by Sharni Azalee)Let your imagination fly you to a land where anything is possible. Walk on water among pink clouds in this surreal landscape where large sakura flowers and other exotic flora tower over you in a beautiful dream forest of pinks and grays and fawn.



Ichi-go Ichi-e is one of those sims that just take your breath away with their dreamlike quality. The dark wind light with a rising sun that highlights the enormous sakrua tree is just the icing on the cake. The build has shops along the edges in small cave like areas, the entrances flanked by tress and columns.

Flying about the sim are large petals, even larger dragon flies, transparent butterflies and tiny Fireflies. And if you look closely you'll spot some tiny sakrua fairies hovering about in places. You can also have tea with them under the falling petals of the giant sakura tree.

Scattered among the giant flowers and magical mushrooms are fallen orbs, some of which you can sit in and meditate while watching the faire folk go about their day. There are also a few other surprises to find as you look around.

All in all its just a stunning, magical sim. Sharni has done an amazing job.

Odyssey creators - Evie's Closet, Spyralle, Wasabi Pills, FAIDA, and Musa

Click here for a list of all the stores on Odyssey 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.


Time to highlight some of the creative and generous vendors of Fantasy faire. These ones can be found on the Odyssey sim.

I try to show off the items they are offering in their relay vendors. But sometimes I likes something else more, or its easier to show off then the relay item. But all vendors have at least two items for sale with 100% proceeds going to Relay for Life of Secondlife.

I shall start by showing off the gown by one of my favorite dress makers ever, Evie's closet.



Click for bigger


Her offer this year is a special color of a new gown called Caoimhe. You can also get matching shoes and wings to go with it. But I am just in the gown. It is mesh and the sleeves and corset are separate from the dress. So if you want you can wear it with out them. Pose is by Musa, who has a store on Odyssey, as are all the poses in this post, but none of them are Relay offerings.



Click for bigger


Next up is Spyralle's Owl Moon gown in a special relay coloring called Midsummer Night. Like all of Spyralle's items, its textured in their signature fractal patterns. This one in shades of purple and blue, and you can also pick it up in an array of other colors themed to the Months, the collection there has not been fully released yet. I also am wearing one of Wasabi Pills Relay offerings for my Hair, Called Jack. A cute short hair cut that would work for males or females. It's none rigged mesh so I could resize it to fit YAY!



Click for bigger


Lastly we have the [FAIDA] Calypso gown in Passion. The other Relay color of the same gown is called Sin and it's black. They have a number of other outfits as Relay offerings as well. I am not familiar with the designer so I can not speak a lot about them. But this gown is quality mesh with great texturing.

So get ye to Odyssey and get shopping!

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim - Odyssey

ODYSSEY | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Fallen Gods Inc.

Odyssey (by Alia Baroque)“As you set out on your journey to Ithaca, pray that your journey be a long one, filled with adventure, filled with discovery.” Barry B. Powell, Classical Myth



The first shopping sim on my trip around the Fairelands is the white marbled halls of Odyssey. Keeping with the mer theme started in the Junction, Alia's build makes you feel like you are in the halls of Atlantis risen up from the depths off the cost of Greece, long ago enough for grass and trees to have grown in places. Tall marbled buildings grow up towards the sky, while the waves lap at the stairs to the shops.

Twin mermaid fountains flank the sides of the sim, while in the middle a pair of hippocampus statues recline in the setting sun. Way above it all magic twists and turns it's way out of a cliff side, surrounded by pillars. Who knows what it means. And if you go for a swim, you may find some tunnels under the water.

All in all, its a breathtaking sim, in Alia's unmistakable style, and I am sure it has secrets it still has yet to reveal.

AND WE HAVE LIFT OFF! *blows trumpets, throws glitter* FANTASY FAIRE IS OPEN!



It's been open a few hours in fact, but I had a dentist appointment and wasn't able to post till now.

The outfit you see above is my "base" outfit for exploring the sims. It's what I will be in unless in the sim posts. The necklace is a relay item from THIS years Fantasy faire and you can get it on the Aurora sim. It's a lil vile of hope fairy dust and I fell in love with it the moment I opened the blogger package up and saw it. I will also be adding it to my Relay day outfit.

I am very glad this year, that I am not relaying in honor of anyone I lost this past year. Though I know others are, and others are going through cancer right now. My friend Moria whom I was Relaying for last year is in full remission of hers. And so this year I simply Relay to bring hope to others. Hope that one day this beast of a disease will be beaten back in ALL its forms. And that one day the words , "You have Cancer" will not be so filled with dread and fear.

I will start my trip around the faire with the usual starting point, then go clockwise around the sims. So, here we go...From the webpage..

FAIRELANDS JUNCTION | SLURL Sponsored by Cerridwen’s Cauldron.

Fairelands Junction (by Saiyge Lotus) hosts portals to all the other Fairelands, hastening your trip should you not wish to sightsee and explore. This year the Junction is half a mer-realm, so make sure to explore underwater!


Saiyge has once again, done a beautiful job on the Fairelands sim. This year we dive underwater to reach the portals to the other realms. Each encased in an pillared archway. Stunning Bioluminescencent plants encircle the portals. And schools of fish swim among them all. Careful of some of plants! They puff out liquids when touched! And who knows what other secrets the depths hold.

Then if you head upwards you will find the remains of some Grecian pavilions, that house the auction items, as well as an island with a tree and the wall of candles, for remembrance. Scattered about are various boats to laze in and watch the world go by. And bubbling up at one spot is a cluster of balloon/bubbles to cavort in among butterflies. Floating above it all are colored paper lanterns, adding just the right touch to it all.

Tomorrow..

Right now I sit in the Fairelands Junction sim, at the start of Blogger Preview for Fantasy Faire, an event for Relay for Life of Secondlife and one of my favorite events all year.

 To say I am excited is an understatement. But this event is also full of emotion for me, The meaning behind it, what the money it raises is for. And the stunning builds on each sim. Blogger preview can be overwhelming just at the sheer BEAUTY of it all.

 I'll be doing at LEAST 4 posts a day, two for a sim two for creators on the sims, until the end of June. I will miss the last few days due to going off to a real life faire the Oklahoma Renaissance festival, which I am one of its fairies.

 Creators this year have been very generous with their blogger offerings so I have tons to blog! It's going to be hard to pick what I want to show off as I have SO much for some sims I can't blog it all!

 My Theme post will of course be taken on one of the sims.

 For more information and to see a schedule of the events, list of shops, Hunt info and tons more please visit https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com

It opens tomorrow for the public at 9 AM Sl time. See you in the Fairelands!

So this is a day later then it should have been due to the last driver update for my graphics card made Secondlife Crash every time I took a photo. Figured out how to roll it back to a previous one and all's good! But it did mean I needed to change the sim I explored, as the Gardens Of Whimsy Sim, SLURL, has a LOT to see and I didn't have as much time. So I chose to go to Pandora's Box of Dreams new build, Dreams of Endless Spring.

I will just have to go back to Gardens of Whimsy later.

The new Dream on Pandora is just as lovely as the last one. It's a semi "water sim" but with lots of flowers and trees and rocks. And some houses scattered about. AND there is a secret underwater area for you to find! I throughly enjoyed my visit to this sim. And I am looking forwards to seeing the next dreams to appear on it.
