So Eden Sank To Grief

dawn's promise final.png

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

In the Beginning…

Fallen.png

 

In the beginning, the Creator made the Heavens, and he populated them with angels. These otherworldly companions watched over the Earth as he birthed the land and the water, and the beautiful creatures that inhabited it. Some of the angels grew listless, watching as the wonders on Earth grew, and fell in love with some of the beautiful men and women who worked and lived off of the land the Creator gave them. Angry, the Creator cast them out, damning them to a life away from the light of perfection. Some of these angels, fallen from grace, forced to live an eternity in exile, eventually gave in to the darkness in their hearts…

 

Okay, so… So far, blogging for the Fantasy Faire has been an amazing experience. Since joining the modeling world, I have discovered so many amazing designers in Second Life that I never knew existed because I so rarely ventured outside of my little bubble of safety and comfort. Blogging for events is one of those experiences that really allows you to do that, and Fantasy Faire has been one of the most eye-opening of these experiences for me so far.

I’ve been trying to come up with a little something to go with each styling I do when I post something for Fantasy Faire. The above story is actually a biblical reference, but I had so much fun with this styling and this super!cute ensemble from {Acios} that I absolutely had to play with it a little bit. This outfit comes with the dress (which is absolutely fabulous on its own, I might add!), the wings, and the horns–all in a fun and flirty pink RFL version! It’s called “Hellkiss.”

…I absolutely love it.

I paired it with this awesome “Iota” Hair from the always amazing Analog Dog (and ALSO an exclusive for Fantasy Faire, I might add!), and then I went exploring. I had so much fun with this! If you get the chance, please do stop by the Faire, explore the amazing sims, and check out the fabulous offerings available from countless wonderful designers across the grid. Remember, the Fantasy Faire supports the Relay for Life of Second Life, so…

Go shopping! It’s for a great cause!

Here in My Garden of Magic…

In an attempt to preserve the last bit of natural beauty in an ever-growing concrete jungle, she lurks, walking with steps that are lighter than air, breathing new life to the forest with a simple brush of her fingertips, and leaving a trail of lush resplendence in her wake. She is the guardian of the Earth, fighting an ever-constant battle to preserve the Land-That-Was. She is life and growth. She is Mother Nature…

I literally just couldn’t help myself. You guys are going to get lots of fun previews during Fantasy Faire this year, because there is so much to tell you that I hardly even know where to start. The Faire officially opens tomorrow, and I was fortunate enough to get a little sneak peek at the lovely sims this year. They are absolutely amazing. I was a little overwhelmed at the level of awesome this year. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out, but you should definitely check it out. There’s so much to see, so many wonderful merchants, events and quests to come… It’s going to be an amazing event.

I was looking through some of my previews today and found some absolutely amazing pieces that I had to use for this styling. The even more amazing part is that I have (regrettably) not heard of either of these designers before!

I know, I know. I’m horrible, right?

Well, I’ve got some new places to shop now, and some fantastic things to show you. I am wearing the “Butterfly Headdress” from LOVE and pieces from the “Springbok” set in gold from ~Soraida~. If you want to pick up these or other awesome pieces, check out the Fantasy Faire. Remember, proceeds from exclusive items sold at Fantasy Faire go to Relay for Life… So you’ll be picking up some awesome new items AND supporting a great cause.

It’s Just in Your Wildest Dreams…

The last couple weeks have been full of surprise and lots of good and bad. Recently, I had one of those “bad” days, and then logged on to find that I had been accepted as a blogger for Fantasy Faire 2016. That day certainly got better, didn’t it? I’d certainly say so!

Fantasy Faire is probably hands down probably the largest event I have ever been picked to blog for, and I can’t possibly be more excited about it. There are so many wonderful and talented designers participating this year, and even some fairly epic blogger challenges (which are open to anyone to try! Please see this link for the challenges.) for the event as well. This photo is not a fulfillment of any of these challenges. In this case, I just happened to be looking through some of the wonderful previews our fabulous designers have gifted us with and quite literally stumble across this gem from {Posh Pixels}.

Ladies… This outfit includes EVERYTHING. The jumper. Boots. Gloves. Hair. The bow and quiver full of arrows. And yes, the skin is included. I had to share it. I absolutely loved it from the moment I opened it, and it’s got everything you need to really celebrate the fantasy spirit. Plus, I happen to think I look fabulous.

Fantasy Faire is opening soon! PLEASE check out all of the amazing sims and merchant booths. The event benefits the Relay for Life. Cancer sucks. Shop at Fantasy Faire and help us kick its butt.
