Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - Dawn’s Promise

DAWN’S PROMISE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Looking Glass.
Dawn’s Promise  by Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee.
A secret place between times where the old becomes reborn into the new. Majestic crumbling ruins dissolve into a sea of glorious foliage. A place where the lost energies of the past are converted into new life. Springs of life-giving water overflow. Flower petals and creative energy float on the breeze. This is the space between the exhale and the inhale. Full of hope and promise.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


I love this sim so much. I want to live in it. It's just a blissful, colorful, calming sim. Marcus and Sharni have scattered all sorts of cozy little nooks to rest in and enjoy the faire day with. I plan to pick up a number of them. They are so delightfully boho and fae like.

That the buildings are on what can only be described as upside down mountains adds to the magical ethereal feeling. Dozens of waterfalls spilling off of them into the water below add a calming effect. And the vine and flower covered buildings, artfully crumbling in places, just makes for a place that screams live here and be happy.









The Hill Creators - Aleutia, Jinx, Analog dog, NSP, Touryuumon, KSdesgins

Click here for a list of all the stores on The Hill 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. Also I switch between a Slink, Maitreya or system body depending on the outfit, So please demo first! SLURL to the sim.

Not quite as many outfits from this sim. Mostly, as if you are a tiny or a dinkie avatar wearer this is the sim you want to go to! I wear neither so I don't have any of those to blog. But GO TO THE HILL if you do! So many designers for those types of avatars!





Lets start with this gorgeous ball gown from Aleutia. This gown comes with a hud that lets you change the color of several parts to mix and match. The top is slightly sheer but the bottom is full satin and flows so nicely. I am also wearing one of two new hairs by Analog Dog for the faire, this one is called Umberon. The multi braids are fun and playful. The bunnies are part of the sim and I had to include them in the photo. SO CUTE.



Moving onto another dress, thats really more lingerie again, also by Aleutia. Again its color change but only one overall color, though you can wear it with or with out the tassels. It's very sheer, as you can tell by that you can see my belly button. But again would be good if you are the type that wears this for your sweetie. So many colors to chose from!

And in all honesty I love how this photo turned out.




And lastly I have a sweet lil milk maid type outfit, PERFECT for a Shire themed sim. It's by NSP and you can get the dress, with texture change, hair, hat and flowers for the hair! Its so adorable. I have a friend that would love this outfit so much. So gonna try to get it for her!



Now for some gacha pets by Jinx. A whole little herd of equines of various types. I'm not even showing off all the styles you can win either!




And lastly some rez items. The mushroom and the Mandela stone are by Jinx, the gazebo is by Touryuumon and the house behind them *full view at this link* is by KS Designs and is the Fairy enchanted house. They have a number of homes up and I obviously liked this one best. It has purple walls with fairies inside the two level house.

A peaceful and beautiful village built into the rolling hills surrounding a small lake. Breathe in warmth, peace, and maybe a little pipe smoke, A place where friendships sprout as readily as the mushrooms beneath leafy green trees.
All my photos of the sim are at this link

Welcome to the magical realm of the Hill. Or, as you will quickly learn, could also be called the Shire. This sim is a wonderfully sunny build that you expect to see Hobbits or a wizard pulling up in a cart at any moment. There's even a party going on! It's a super cheerful sim that just makes you happy to be in.

There are duck, goats, and bunnies, which I love. Also its a grand sim to prance about in that deer avatar from Chaddul Ro in. Whole flocks can be seen at times. That avatar has been a HUGE hit at the faire this year.

This is another of the Roleplay sims and you can learn more about it here

Raven's Perch Creators - Roped Passions, Glyph, Belle Epoque, Syren Song, Attitude is an Artform, HarshLands

Click here for a list of all the stores on Raven's perch 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. Also I switch between a Slink, Maitreya or system body depending on the outfit, So please demo first! SLURL to the sim

I had a LOT of lovely things from the creators on Raven's Perch. I really had to limit it down some so I sadly am unable to blog everything I was given. Fantasy Faire creators are so generous! Us bloggers love them for all they do. SO I picked a few outfits to show off, one even steps waayy out my usual comfort zone. But it was an lovely item otherwise so I chose to showcase it.

Lets start with a full outfit by Roped Passions



This outfit, called Fleurette Evony, comes with a lot. Of the outfit I have on the lovely gown, the Necklace, and the horns with a headdress attached. It also comes with wings and shoes. There is a close up of the horns here . The detailing of the gown is grand, I think I like the lacing up the sides the best.




And this outfit by Glyph is the one that is waaayyy outside my comfort zone. It is not a short dress, nope, this is sheer lingerie! Which I know is hard to tell on my fur, but yeah, totally sheer. Very sweet and cute if you are the type to wear lingerie in Secondlife though. So I would recommend it those looking for something sensual to slip into.



This is the first of two gowns by Belle Epoque. Oddly I didn't get the relay vendor outfits but I got two lovely gowns that are new to the store. So I chose to blog one and went and picked up a cute lil dress from a relay vendor as well. Here is the new release. A sottish gown called Brianna. I love how the folds fall and the sash is a perfect touch.



This second outfit is from a relay vendor and is called Shuang . It is cute and sassy and has a mix of Japaneses and 50's housewife styling to me . SO cute!



And lastly I have a dress by Syren's Song named Pandora . I love the lace edging on this gown! I am also wearing a cowl and collar by Attitude is an Artform, both are called Web. It really works well with this gown.

And now the rezable items All by HarshLands



Showing here is a moving sculpture called Healing, A Fantasy Wayshrine and a Festive tree. The water about the sculpture twirls, which you can see here

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - Raven's Perch

RAVEN’S PERCH | SLURL | SHOPS

Sponsored by Rivendale.

Raven’s Perch  by Kaelis Ember & lrriven.
A place of beauty and mystery, this is a land that was once grand but has now been lost to the passage of time. Nothing remains untouched by the wild chaos of nature. The shadow of what it once was adds an element of Fae grace and elegance to the shell of a formerly great city. Walk its rose choked avenues, explore its Gothic ruins, and unveil the mystery of its fall to ruin.

All my photos of the sim are at this link

Raven's perch is a gorgeously Gothic sim. The buildings are all full of stained glass windows and flying buttresses and vaulted ceilings. Surrounding these miniature cathedrals is a wild thicket of trees, roses, and thorns. Perfect homes for the many many ravens you will see. Mr Poe would be very much at home in this sim.

Raven's perch is one of the many sims this year hosting a roleplay during festival. You can see a few items in place for it already. And learn more about it at this link You can also learn a bit in world by looking for these clicking them, getting the note card and finding all of them. You will get a small sim gift if you find the last one.

There is also a small memorial to some important people in the sim designers life that they have lost to Cancer, it's near the waters edge . Do go and pay respects.













Chaddul Ro Creators - Les Encantades, Gypsy Wolf, Fallen Arms, PeachBoy, Plastik, and Mindgardens

Click here for a list of all the stores on Chaddul Ro a 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 exclusive items, or items by FF vendors only.

First sim creators post! To showcase some of the amazing items you can buy at the faire this year to support Relay for Life.

And thanks to the magic of gyazo I can now show off animated things! WOOT!

Ok so first up. Two totally different looks by Les Encantades.




This gorgeous ball gown called Sandrine in the Rose color. It utterly did not match the sim in theme but I kinda love the contrast there in truth. It has a full train in the back and the fabric falls wonderfully about the legs.




The next dress is a shorter more warrior like dress called Wanda and I have it on in Burgundy. I parried it with this great sword by Fallen Arms called Unity Maxim Steel Longsword . The blade has this nifty purple glow that courses over it. That you can see here if the embed does not work



Next up I have a dress and an AO to show off for you



The sweet lil dress I have on is by Gypsy wolf and is called Season's Fae Spring. And the reasons I am not in my normal wings for this photo is the creator behind a grand Bento wing flight ao kindly gifted me some bento wings to show off his creation. The Ao by Peach Boy is just a lot of fun, not only makes the wings move but you as well. I didn't have to use the fly button to fly! I had loads of fun flying about the orc camp testing this out. That you can see here if the embed does not work my camera work kinda sucks though, sorry about that. I you are a bento wing wearer I highly recommend giving this Ao for them a look at!




next up is an adorable full avatar by Plastik



I love this thing, its Ao is so much fun, you bounce when you run! There are swishy tails and idle animations. They have been a big hit this year at the fairelands. SO join in on the fun! I have on both style tails and you can take the horns off to be a doe. The purple shade you see here is the Relay version but there is also a Gacha that has other colors to try for.

And lastly some rezable items for you all



The vardo and the tree are both by Gypsy Wolf and the skybox they are in are by Mindgardens. The Vardo is nice and roomy and good for travelers. I love the lights on the tree and the skybox would make a great setting FOR the vardo!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim - Chaddul Ro

Chaddul Ro (Searlait Nitschke) | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by The Roawenwood.
An outpost of the Orcs of Chal Khizzur, Chaddul Ro stands on the edge of their territory. In the center of the outpost there is a beacon, rising above upon a tower guarded day and night by the orcs. It stands for strength; it stands against anyone who would douse it, a symbol to be seen to guide those from outside the protective barriers and walls back home. For the survivors that seek refuge from battle. It is believed that as long as the fires of the outposts are kept lit that there is always hope, sanctuary to be found and that the tribe remains strong.


I loved the simplicity of this sim. As an Orc output it didn't need a lot to it. You could feel the power of the orc in the build. The outpost towers gave watch for all those approach and are easy to defend.

Could not find the jail on the sim but I know sometimes they don't rez those till they are needed. I'll try to go back and get it later!

LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!! Ok no, please actually lets not fight in the faire sims. That would be bad. So maybe LET'S DO THIS THING would be better to say.

I have been so excited for Fantasy Faire this year. Last year I got pulled away a couple days and got behind on posting but this year I have a plan and spent all blogger day taking photos and I am READY. Only photos left to take are the item photos to give the wonderful creators more time to get them out. But those will start soon.

I am as usual, showing off my base Fantasy faire exploration outfit in this post. Since the Fairelands Junction has no stores on it, I used it for the base shot. All windlights you see in the photos I take are the sim wind lighting.

To see all my photos click this link here

I love this sim. It reminds me so much of the old Oubliette sim. For good reason as Saiyge used a lot of the stuff she made for both. The wall of remembrance has changed this year. From a wall of candles in an alcove to candles scattered on the roots of the grand tree that serves as the portal to the fairelands. The tall towering trees of the forest are scattered about waterways filled with boats, floating candles and water plants. It's truly a magical forest.
