Fantasy Faire 2015 is over for the year. The sims are still up for a few more days, till Linden Labs takes the magic away. But the faire events are done with. Just sight seeing and a weee bit of shopping to still do.

So far the totals for Money raised for Relay For Life is $30,752 USD. WOW! I believe that is a new fantasy faire record.

Thank you to all the amazing creators that offered such a wide variety of items for sale that helped raise that amount. And all those that just straight up donated. Thank you

One day we will win this battle against cancer and it is thanks to people that donate to fund the research that it will happen. But the money wont go to just that. It goes to help those currently fighting deal with it, be it treatments, emotional support or needed information.

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim – Ravenshold and the 2015 Hunt, The Lost Land

Ravenshold (by Rynn Verwood)The hunt sim, hosting the second part of the Fairelands Hunt: The Lost Land. The snow-clad island stands slightly aside of the Fairelands circle, silent in its solitude. What secrets does it hold?

I am combining a post about the Faire hunt and the post about Ravenshold, the sim that the second part of the hunt takes place on, together as its logic. I am going to try to not be to spoilery, but some of my photos in the album link below may have some spoilers. And if you wish to read and exceptional guide to the hunt, that helps but doesn't outright GIVE the answers head on over to Deoridhe at Primdolls and check out hers. First part is here and second part is here.

You can pick up a hunt hud at any landing point on all the Faire sims, and randomly if a nfew other places. You'll have two choices, one that is just the hud, the other comes with a cute outfit by Bare Rose, which you can see in my photos of the hunt and Ravenshold, except the hat it came with.… Read the rest

Click here for a list of all the stores on Wildehaven Marsh a with SLURL's to their main stores I will not be posting SLURL's individually, as you can get them all at this handy link. If you need one for an item I have on that is NOT at Fantasy fair, and that will mostly be hair and poses, Ask for it! I'll be happy to tell you, but I am trying to highlight the Fantasy Faire items, or items by FF vendors only.

And so, here we have my last Sim Creators highlight for Fantasy Faire 2015. I'd like to thank ALL our wonderful creators that came out to support the cause. Not just the ones I blogged. They are all very generous in both what they gifted to us bloggers, but with their time, energy and creativity in making items to sell to raise funds for Relay For Life. The gorgeous sims and amazing creations are great, but it is the cause of Fighting Cancer that really brings us all together. And it is a fight we will win one day. And that is what makes Fantasy Faire the amazing thing it is. So thank you, for your help in that.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim – Vallacia

VALLACIA | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Epic Toy Factory. Vallacia (by Mayah Parx)A floating market town, a bustling trade hub where denizens of the Fairelands come to trade for even the most obscure of items. Dark & weatherbeaten, all matter of constructions crisscross the waters to keep this hodgepodge of shacks,stalls and barges afloat. Magical mysteries abound in this haven for traders and thieves alike.

Like a floating version of the marketplace at the start of Stardust, Vallacia is the stunning last of the fairelands shopping sims. I have gone "round the clock", and all that is left is the hunt. PHEW!

It holds creator Mayah Parx, AKA the Toymaker, signature style. A few scattered "flufflula" trees and the colored windows in the buildings tipped it off to me. The sim is all platforms and water, so I have fun trying to NOT end up in the drink like I usually do on over the water walkways. I loved the lamps along the walkways and some of the stores set out rezed versions of their items adding to the sutble whimsy of the sim.… Read the rest

Just a few outfits from here...Also the note card I had listing creators alphabetically first then sim second had a small mistake and listed Black Tulip on Poppetsborough when it is really on Wildhaven, or possibly both...so I used one of their poses again here!

First up we have a simple but pleasant gown by Beyond Persuasion Design called {W}Dragon realm: Spell seeker gown . Yes the sleeves really do go down quite a bit past your fingertips!

Next up is a gorgeous silk like gown by Solarium called Flora! I think this is the first time I've seen a dress from them, they are more known for their spell systems.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim – Wildehaven Marsh

WILDEHAVEN MARSH | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Solarium. Wildehaven Marsh (by Rynn Verwood)Settled at the edge of a lake, the village was created centuries ago, as a safe haven for those who practiced magic. An air of abandonment floats over the town now, however don’t be fooled, its magic is still much alive as one can see in the soft glows shining through the ivy covered windows.

Wildehaven Marsh is a lovely little town, full of one of my favorite styles of buildings, on the edge of a calm lake. Candles grouped on the stone walls light your way in the evening as you make your way through the sim. A small touch i rather liked. And hovering above it all, watching the slumbering hamlet, is Fairechylde 2 the Fantasy Faire radio Dragon. Making yet another appearance in the Faire lands.

Its another simple yet lovely sim, a good rest of the senses after the previous amazing sims. Nice and calm, like a quite cabin in the woods by a lake.

With it's obvious Japanese theme YoZakura attracted a few creators along those lines.



Click for bigger


Lets start with this simple but lovely Kimono by Anachron called Women's Kimono. If it has a more unique name its not on my box. This Kimono is very nice, simple, but with a hud to let you change around some of the colors. and a bit of the styling. The pose I am using is also available on the sim from Rook, it's called Butterflies in a jar and I found it quite enchanting.

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim – YoZakura

YOZAKURA | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Fuubutsu Dou. YoZakura (by Nya Alchemi)In the late hours of the night, visit the Japanese Hanami Festival and dream… Traveler behold As Midnight courts the Moon and Cherry blossoms dance

For those that don't know the Japanese Hanami Festival is also called the Sakura Blossom festival. A tradition that happens in spring when the cherry trees are in bloom. People will go to the parks and picnic under the trees as the blossoms fall. It sounds quite lovely.

YoZakura lets you get a taste of that tradition, but with a magical twist you can only get in Secondlife. Atop floating cliffs a dragon guards the town hosting the festival, while in the waters lotus fish swim about lazily.

The sim was designed as a night festival but I turned the windlight to a setting sun for a bit to show some of the color and details you miss when its a dark sim. Then went back to the sim windlight, which shows off the gentle glow of lamps and magical trees.… Read the rest

Lets start with this lovely gown called Lady Lysa Rose by Feyline Fashions . I love the neckline of it and how it moves nightly even though it's mesh. The ruffles and the jewels on the collar add just the right touch.

Here we have a short spunky purple dress by .HollyWeird called Belle! I love the pattern on the bubble style skirt.

Why yes I am aware I mixed my fairy tales in this shot :P This is Junbug's relay offering called Riding Hood, the relay color is obviously RED, but you can get it in other shades as well. The hood is one piece with the gown so choose your hair carefully with it!… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim -Spires of Andolys

SPIRES OF ANDOLYS | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Dwarfins. Spires of Andolys (by Jaimy Hancroft/Eowyn Swords)Crooked little fantasy styled houses inspired by the fairytales of your childhood. Centered around a magnificent castle that would be the envy of Sleeping Beauty. Careful though, the castle guards a secret dungeon hidden deep within its bowels where the darkest villains are forever forgotten

Oh sweet, sweet magical things. To say that this is my favorite of all the Faire sims this year is a VAST understatement. But then that is what to expect when you make a fairy tale themed sim loaded with DISNEY references! There may have been a lot of squealing when I spotted stuff. Especially on my first run through last Thursday. One piece in particular sent me into fits of glee. It involved a fountain and some sheep...

All the big ones are represented, except Frozen, and a few "lesser" ones. You can find things that represent Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Snow White, Alice In Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty and more!… Read the rest

Poppetsborough is apparently the sim of the Pose Makers, as it has quite a few of them on it.

Lets start with a nice steampunk gown by Designs by Isaura that is simply called Steampunk Outfit. It comes with the cute hat and there is a pair of matching boots to wear with it. The pose I am in is by Eternal Dream and it is from the Fata set, which is a fairy themed set.

Next up I am in a gown from House of Rfyre 'Fayre'. It is not their relay offering, but I was not keen on their Relay offering, it was no where NEAR my style and more reveling then I like, so I picked up this one in relay purple instead and tossed money into a donation kiosk to make the difference.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2015 Sim – Poppetsborough

Sponsored by Dandelion Daydreams Factory. Poppetsborough (by Luna Barak/Alrunia Ahn/Kyra Reiter)Enter a storybook world with the emphasis on the book. Have your favorite stories pop to life as you walk into the book and become the characters of your favorite fairytales.

I don't even know where to start on this fun and playful sim. Everything looks as if it is made out of printed paper! Well except for the books the town came out of. It's so imaginative and unique. And every time I pan about I spot some new little detail.

The sim is another of the sims that has a Role Play group on it. The Rickety Weasels from last year are back with the Tears of Poppetsborough. Telling the origins of the sim and trying to fix the tears showing up in it.

I missed getting to take part in the start of it, but while I was taking the photos today they had an event and I went to that. There are photos at the "all my photos" link of it. If you have a chance check out the times for the rest of the Rp events and stop by!… Read the rest

POSEIDON’S ABYSS | SLURL  Poseidon’s Abyss (by Haveit Neox)Arts & Entertainment sim, hosting fantasy art and plenty of dance and art performances. Dive deep into the ocean to marvel at the treasures within!

Poseidon’s Abyss picks back up on the Mer theme from the Junction and Odyssey. But amps it up to 11. Wow, underwater ruins, wrecked ships, mystical animals and underwater statues! The build is amazing and breath taking and every turn of the eye spots something new and interesting. I switched to Merkitty form while exploring. It was quite fun!

This is also the Arts and entertainment sim, so there are no vendors. But there are performances that happen daily, several art displays, and it is where you can go to vote for King, Queen and chancellor of the Faire.

Lets start of with a lovely gown called Ostara by John Dee's emporium. I love the colors on this gown,and it comes with the matching sun crown that follows the motif on the dress. you can also pick up a bunny or a chick follower made to go with it. But as i was hovering in the air they looked odd in the photo so I left them off. I liked this gown in part for its mythological background, Ostara is a Germanic spring goddess for those that don't know.

Meanwhile the Mystics tell tales of the unweaver at whose feet they lay the blame for their ice-age, their hopes for salvation lie in legends of heroes, ancient tales of lands across the dimensions, their faith hangs on finding the lost knowledge that can bring forth the confluence. The two factions, poles apart in their beliefs are about come together as myth and machine meet beneath the Northern Lights.


The polar sim of Aurora is one of the sims hosting one of three Fairelands Roleplays. This one put on by the NeoVictorian's and is called White Wedding.

Sponsored by Roawenwood. Tangleshimmer Grove (by Searlait Nitschke)Deep in the heart of the wood is the secret place of Fairies. Golden light bathes the lush green as flowers dance and the early morning dew lays a glistening shimmer over the world.


Tangleshimmer Grove is a calm peaceful woods, with a wide stream running through it. It was a nice rest after the last stunning sims. Breathtaking in its own simplified way. And it has a fairy mushroom circle so that makes it a great sim! I like the pink trees at each entrance, and the winding stream has lovely lotus flowers in it.

And as I am sitting on a purple mushroom in Tangleshimmer, writing this post, listening to Fantasy faire radio. I learned that a beloved resident of Second Life, Soliel Snook, lost her fight to cancer just this past Friday. A sad reminder of WHY we do this, Why Fantasy Faire exists, why we Relay. To find that cure, so that no one has to hear the words "You have cancer" with fear anymore.… Read the rest

I shall be going to that for sure!

There is also a small sim specific mini hunt. Look for the giant book near each of the entrances for directions. It's very simple and the prizes are cute.
