Tomb of the Komori Daiyoukai

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: He inhaled deeply the smoke of the serpent pipe. As he exhaled, the snake at the tip hissed out smoke trails. He watched it lazily meander towards a nearby rockface. The pipe was a prized relic of the Komori clan. It was not of this world, it belonged to the spiritworld. It's smoke was being sucked toward a heavy spiritual presence nearby. There must be hidden cave. "Father," he smiled. "At last I found you." Once inside the cave, he discovered fallen skeleton of his father, his batwings still stretched out, as if he might fly away at any moment. Beside the massive skeleton, impaled into a pile of skulls, was the gleaming legendary katana of his father. Smoke swirled around it. The pulsing power emanating from the sword gave him goosebumps. He climbed up the pile of bones and lovingly withdrew his birthright. "Nightfang" he whispered to it as it were his lover, "So nice to meet you at last."

The idea of this post was inspired by one of my favorite animes.  The pipe, tattoo, hairsticks, and pants you can find at Japonica. The Bento wings are part of the brand new Linden Labs Bento starter avatars. The giant skeleton is part of the Cureless gacha at Epiphany.

The Little Fountain Visitor

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: A mist rolled slowly into the sleeping village. Tomorrow would be a buzz of activity during the summer festival, but for tonight the air was calm with only an occasional cricket chirp, or croak of a lonely frog. Stalking silently in the tall grass was the Little Lion, protector of the village. It was hard work keeping the rats away so the big event would run smoothly, but quiet moments like this made it worth it for the tiny fierce hunter. She sprung up with ease on top of her favorite place, the rock water fountain in the garden. From her perch, the Little Lion surveyed her territory. Then smiled in her own catlike way for a job well done, and took a drink.

The Tower of Phantomhive

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: A crow landed in the snow covered doorway of the ruined tower and cawed loudly. A blindfolded man turned his ear to the doorway and nodded as if he understood the message of the feathered visitor. He was a regal looking man, despite the maid uniform he wore. He was none other than Sebastian, the demon butler of Phantomhive Manor. He was busy preparing a rather interesting evening of entertainment for young master. Soon, the misogynistic thief who stole Her Majesty's crown jewels would arrive. The deranged criminal belonged to a secret society that believed women should never be in positions of power. Ridiculous. The butler snapped on a tight lady's latex glove. A sinister grin curled up on the edge of his lips. Oh how he did enjoy extracting information.

Fantasy Faire 2017: The Fall of Morbus

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Farion the pixie wasn't too sure of his quest companion at first. The wizard was shifty looking. But they soon bonded over their shared skintone and joked, "Team Blue to the Rescue!" Turned out the guy was good at hunting ingredients for the spell they needed to save the Bard Queen and he was even able to brew it himself. (Only a few mishaps, nothing serious like the massive explosion when Farion last tried potions.) They were too busy slapping high-fives after defeating a giant winged demon that they failed to realize, "defeated" is not the same "gone." Unknown to them, a tiny hitchhiker joined their group.

The Fantasy Faire is fading into fond memories now. I want to show you all one more picture of cool new releases, like these badass Bento wings by Spider Productions that come with poses, ao and feather tints & glows. I also want to give Kudos to the The Fairelands Quest: The Bard Queens Song. I adore the FF quests, and this year's little Pixie with a heavy Aussie accent, was a real charmer. Loved it.

Fantasy Faire 2017: Atlantean Prince

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The Spirit Pool was a land-oasis where humans came to interact with those who lived under the waves. It was in this magical place, a visiting herbalist met the Atlantean Prince. The scientist had been searching for plants that could help combat the worst diseases. He thought perhaps, plants in the ocean might be the key. The Prince thought it was an excellent idea, he would love to help! "But," he thought to himself, "why not let the researcher hunt the sea for plants himself ?"  So with a wink, and a wave of his father's trident, the Prince transformed his new friend into a funny looking fish with a gigantic eye. “To better search by!" the Prince laughed. "Don't worry, it's only temporary. Come on, lets go explore!”

Fantasy Faire 2017: The Crow Tengu

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: There once was a young Crow Tengu who was told by his parents to stay away from humans, (the Tengu were forbidden from interfering in human affairs). But he simply could not obey the rules. His heart belonged to a little girl with a laugh that sounded like the call of crows. Adorable. To him, she was one of them, even if she had no feathers. It all started one day when he was out scouting the mountain. Tucked deep in the forest by a babbling brook, was a small human nest. There was a sickly looking girl sitting outside alone. Being curious, he flew down and asked her what she was doing. She explained she was gravely ill and her parents were both working hard to earn enough money to treat her illness. He shook his feathers in confusion at the difficulties of human rituals, but before he could ask about it, a rain of questions showered down on him. Since he liked the attention, he told her stories about himself, his people, and their oral history. She hung on his every word. Her eyes, which seemed so dull before, now sparked with life. So each day he would fly back to his number one fan and tell her a new story. By the time fall came, she had made a full recovery and would return to school. The crows too were preparing to fly south for the winter. With a big hug, she thanked him for keeping her spirits up. He fluffed out his chest in pride, and then plucked out one of his feathers to give her, "Always remember me." He felt sad their storytime was ending. She laughed her adorable crow laugh, said it was impossible for her to ever forget him. ...Many years later she wrote a best selling children's book, "The Many Wild and Wonderful Tales of the Crow Tengu."

This is last weekend of the Fantasy Faire, don't miss all the excitement! You can find a schedule of all the activities here: FantasyFaireSL   And over at pinterest is the handy shopping catalog: shopping-catalogue-2017. Have fun gang! UPDATE:  The Faire has been extended to May 4th.

Fantasy Faire 2017: The Violinist of Venice

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Water lapped at the edges of the Piazza San Marco as the night sky softened to pinks and purples. A lone figure emerged from the shadows carrying a violin case and music stand. He was dressed in formal clothes from another time period. In any other city, he would have drawn stares however this was Venice. Wearing a mask was not considered odd either. As the man took off his cloak, and positioned his music stand, several locals quickly took up best sitting spots nearby. They knew to expect his exquisite concerts in the spring. And he did not disappoint. His music was so powerful, several women tried to discreetly wipe away their tears. Money began to fill his violin case. There were murmurs he was someone famous, but no one really knew. He didn't talk much, just nodded and said thank you, He always took his earnings to the nuns at St. Mark's Basilica and asked them to donate it for him to cancer research. The nuns knew to not ask questions, but surely his heartfelt music reflected a soul grieving the loss of someone dear.

The Fantasy Faire going on strong. 15 beautiful sim designs. The popular Quest game. Literary festival. Role playing. Parades. Live performances. DJs. Parades... and not to mention, lots and lots of shopping to raise money for a good cause, Relay for Life of American Cancer Association.
