Fantasy Faire: Jon Snow

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: What was it like, drifting between worlds, neither alive or dead? Jon should have felt nothing, and saw nothing, but he did. Through the eye of his pet direwolf Ghost, he could see into the living world. It was a magic called warging, a talent that ran in the Stark family. But it wasn't until he lay dying, his blood spilling in the snow, that he discovered this skill inside himself. His spirit had cried out to Ghost in a panic. The wolf embraced him, soothing him like a frighten cub as his body died. And then they merged into one. What had died that day was not him, but his naiveté. If given another chance, he would not make the same mistake twice.

So many people want to know if Jon Snow, from Game of Thrones, comes back. I read an interesting fan theory the other day so I worked it up into an image. This picture is shot at the amazing Fantasy Faire Dangarnon sim by Death Row Designs. Its so easy to get lost there! So much densely packed details, its hard to believe it's SL. All the buildings are for sell, and cave and tower are relay donation items. The giant evil looking tower will be auctioned off at the end of the Fantasy Faire, all funds will be donated to the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life. Don't miss this amazing sim! Only 2 more days are left of the Faire.  Shown above is the Stitched EPOS Albar tunic for men at Fantasy Faire. The shirt underneath is grey but for my image I tinted it a darker color. From BluPrintz is very cool blindfold with animated flames coming out of one eyehole. Very cool effect. It's mod so you can adjust it for the perfect fit or tint the flames and glow.  From Poseidon is the Wizard 1 pose pack with pose and orb.  Over at the Epicene event, is this very cool leather shawl by Noble Creations. You can get it for male and female, black or brown.  The spooky Shadowed Wolf by Aii is an attachment that floats behind you. The trail is flexi so it makes a nice spooky effect when moving.  Making for a nice Jon Snow look is the Adam mesh head by Absolut Creation, and the Mon Tableau Vivant hair.  The belt and sword are the outfits gacha by Death Row.  Have fun at the Fantasy Faire this weekend! Be sure to check the main website for the event schedule, hunt guide, and shopping catalog.

Fantasy Faire: Angel of Blackmoor

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: God's Warrior Angels were known for fighting against all forms of evil. It was Melchizedek who fought the Unweaver, the plague of cancer upon humanity. In garden of Blackmoor, each day he solemnly lit a candle for every soul who fell to the Unweaver. His life and memory were long, and it gave him strength to keep fighting.

One of the best events in SL is back, The Fantasy Faire! The Faire has 14 jaw droppingly gorgeous sims for you explore. There are daily roleplays, live performances, a quest adventure game, literary festival, Artwork, Djs, and of course shopping. This amazing, one of a kind, event is all about raising money for American Cancer Society Relay for Life to fight caner. You can read more about Fantasy Faire at its mainsite here:

Good news! Introducing this year is a Pinterest Shopping-Catalogue-2016 for the Fantasy Faire. The guide was put together by a team of volunteers (including yours truly) to make your shopping easier. Each picture includes the store, item name, and Surl to where you can find the item. (Note: The Shopping Guide shows only the Relay for Life donation vendors, so its only a sample of the many things at the faire.)

The picture above was taken at the beautiful Blackmoor sim. (Love it so much, I want to live there!) You can read more about Blackmoor's creation by Lokii Violet here. I knew it would be the perfect setting for the Wizard outfit by W-Zero. (Fans of the Trinity Blood anime should definitely check it out!) It includes outfit, staff, and hat. There is a male and female version.  From Soul is the Ranitomeya {tera SE} skin. Its a purple skin with fun golden spots and patterns on it.

The Immortal 500: White Knights

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: The Immortal 500 race was looming. According to tradition, the victor from the pervious year determined the rules for the next race. Excited rumors spread throughout the fractured Vampire Nation. Would the deposed tyrant and winner from last year, Kaiser Kruel, reemerge from the shadows to deliver his decree? He had been missing for some time. Anticipation and speculation for the event had reached a fever pitch when like the master showman, Kaiser returned to loud applause. He announced himself as leader of the newly formed United Americas. The crowd gasped. A new Nation? Kaiser was clearly enjoying himself. "All forms of transportation will be banished in the 2066 race. The race instead will be a relay. Hand to hand combat will be legal, and," he paused for dramatic effect, "...greatly encouraged." Representing his United Americas, was team White Knight. Their team leader was the infamous C.U.R.S.E.D Angel. who ripped a Battle Bot apart, limb by limb, with his bare-hands.

Are you tired of going to big events and finding nothing for guys, or nothing for girls? Wouldn't it be great to see an event that brings both girls and guys back together? Introducing new event, Epicene! This first round has a wonderful collection of quality new releases for everyone! Shown above is the new Dext hair by A&Y Cyberbunker on sale at Epicene. It comes in male or female, had a hud to change the colors on its many parts, and it also includes a scalp tattoo with TMP, Omega, and system layers.  From Boys to the Bone, is the ingenting crop blue with braille lettering. As with all BTTB wear, it includes a wide range of fits for girls, guys, and femboys too.  Also at Epicere is the Gutchi Galaxy Headphones. They are resizable, and come with a hud to change its textures.  Over at ROMP are they awesome Sporty Boy Pants by Swagga.  This is the American style football pant with padding under it. You can pick them up in white, black, and red. They are fitted nicely for the TMP male. Also by Swagga are the shoulder pads and headgear from gacha Digital Flyboy.  From Cureless is a fun gacha, Synthetic Angels, over at Epiphany. I used the Hale and Gevurah heads.  From the past round of The Gathering is the Nubian Collar by the Forge.  The helmet by Blue Falcon Industries I combined with the other headgear elements. Its mod, so I made the visor more transparent. On the belly are the Bionique implants by Bliensen + Maitai. The Razor Dread boots, are always handy. The skin is by Clef de Peau, and the TMP eyebrow is a gift you can pick up at the Aeros mainstore.

Vampire Ballet: Black Souls, Red Petals

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: In life, the Kuro twins were child prodigies thrilling audiences with their skillful Cello playing. But those happy times ended when a deranged fan tried to "steal" their talent one limb at a time. Their savior was a well-meaning vampire who heard their cries. He found them dying from their wounds. In one moment more, they and their talent would be lost forever. Thinking quickly, he used his vampiric powers to fuse their broken bodies to stage prop dolls. But the shock was too much for the them. Gone was their spirit. They sat mute, traumatized, as lifeless as the dolls they inhabited. The years passed, but their savior never gave up. He kept them fed with blood drips, wheeled them around, dressed them in the finest clothes. Nothing roused them. Then one day, an idea hit him. Their souls were music, and music would save them the way he never could. 

Today is the last day for The Gathering. Don't miss this cool gacha event with lots of fun fantasy items. Pictured above is the Astralia Bambola gacha. It's a doll theme with wind up keys, key wings, and a special pedestal for your doll that includes nice musicbox poses.  From NeverWish is the Rare Steam Wings Hat.

The gacha includes a 2nd top hat, and steampunk horns.  From Faida is the gothic spiderweb Leggings rare gacha that comes with a hud to change the textures and includes fun spiked toe heels.  From Death Row is the beautiful Iron Filigree bed.

The branches have 5 poses, and hanging flower ball also has 5 poses.  From Swagga is the I'm a Freakin Bunneh gacha Ears and fun Bunny Boots. The gacha also comes with colorful underies for guys and the TMP male fit.  The fur wrap is from Mat Kungler Atelier, and Sesshomaru fans definitely need to go check that out.
