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.

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!

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!

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.

Okay, guys! Here’s a press release about FASHION FOR LIFE OF SECOND LIFE. I know some of you have really been waiting for this time of year!

Check this out!
The Fashion For Life committee is proud to announce the dates for Second Life’s 10th Annual Clothing Fair benefiting Relay For Life of Second Life. This event has become a mainstay of the fashion community and we are excited to continue the tradition with a special 10th anniversary event. The event will open its doors on March 6th 2016 and run for 14 days, closing at 6pm SLT on March 20th.

This event began as a dream 10 years ago with 34 designers participating all with a special reason to fund raise for Relay For Life. Since that date, it has grown to over 180 Designers covering 10 sims and has raised close to 20 million Linden Dollars for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society . To celebrate this Special Event and Milestone, Amethyst Starostin and Nevar Lobo, the founders of the Clothing Fair in 2006, have returned to plan this amazing event.

This year is going to be a trip back in time and Celebrate the history of the Clothing Fair (Fashion for Life). Prepare to be immersed in 10 of the greatest sims built by some of Second Life’s most talented builders. What is the Theme you ask ? Well its : ” THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT”

We are looking forward to presenting 14 days of shopping from some of the most dedicated designers here in Second Life. Each one is committed to raising as much money for Relay for Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society as possible.

This year we are again inviting the Live Musicians and DJ’s of Second Life to join us. T1 Radio will be covering 24/ 7 through out the fair , fund raising and letting us all know just what can be found through out the 10 sims.

But that is not all:

With over 150 designers, we will also offer One of A Kind Auctions, Fashion Shows, Treasure Hunt, and a Photo Contest. Also, the fabulous Elysium Cabaret Dance troupe will be there to perform not one but two shows during the event.
