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.

Walkin’ on the Sun

It ain’t no joke, I’d like to buy the world a toke
And teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
And teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
Hey, I know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe.

It’s been too long since I last blogged (sorry about that). I was feeling the need for some sunshine in my life, and since it was starting to get a little chilly, I made a sun…elf…person. There’s a story here, but I haven’t figured it out yet. Ironically, as I write this, we’ve had to turn our AC back on for the first time in days.

Funny, right?

But since I’ve been in fail!mode with my blogging lately, I wanted to show some of my sponsors some love. Zibska released some super fab things for October’s round of We

I think that one of the most amazing things about fashion in Second Life is that we have this amazing ability to use fashion to truly reinvent ourselves whenever we want. We can do that in real life, to a certain extent, but not in the same way that we can do it here in SL. The possibilities truly are endless.

Just a Dream…

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak but idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream.
-Puck, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

 

I couldn’t help myself. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of my favorite plays by Shakespeare, and while I was combing through some of the wonderful offerings from Fantasy Faire (again), I found myself looking through a folder that I thought I had already explored, and I found this. This is the Sibylline outfit, another fabulous offering from {Posh Pixels}. It comes with the horns, the leaf attachments, the fawn body, tail, legs, and ears, and the crown of flowers. I paired it with the Thyra hair from Wasabi Pills…yet another fabulous offering exclusive to Fantasy Faire this year.

You simply can’t know what you’re missing if you don’t check it out, guys.

Puck was, at least for me, the star of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Want to know a secret? When you really analyze it, it’s not much of a romance. See, at the end, at least one of the lovers is still bewitched. Five points to any Shakespeare buffs who can tell me who!

Here in My Garden of Magic…

forest queen.png

 

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.
