Click for Bigger




Another year gone by,
another Relay weekend come and gone,
another Relay Season drawing to a close.
So much Hope given and money earned.
Current total is 204,231.29 USD


It was a good weekend. I could have easily managed the same personal lap record I did last year, but chose to take it easy. Managed basicaly 15 laps. Had a freind from Mischeif Managed join me half way through and BOY did he book it at times and got up to 12 laps! So proud of him! For me the track was so much smoother except some issues in one sim that EVERYONE seemed to have.

But even with him booking it about we had a blast, We went on some of the MANY roller coasters on the track this year. The one from the ACTS team is one of the best I've ever been on in Sl!

Sims will be up a few more days to explore though a few camps are already gone, you can start checking them out at Steelheads simple but very STEELHEAD build. SLURL HERE


I'll get all my photos from before, durning, and after posted this weekend. still making my way through them and the Flood party is tommrow at some point.… Read the rest

The Beacon in the night

Luminarias are lit to honor and remember someone lost to cancer. But they also serve as a beacon of hope to those still fighting...

Bridging the gap

There is an amazing build on one of the campsites along the track this year. It is called "Bridging the gap" and it, just perfectly shows what RFLoSL is all about. I teared up when I saw it yesterday. It's at the Meli's Maniacs's Camp at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NORTH%20AMERICA%20Prevention/63/127/23

People Look over our Shoulders
At our screens and think,
"what cute Avatars.
They see us as CHARACTERS
in a game.
Manikins playing at being
REAL.
But they are WRONG!
Behind every single avatar is a
Living, breathing, careing, SOUL!
We are not just Manikins,
We are Humans and Tinies,
Merfolk and furries, Petites,
Fairies, Vampires, Lycans,
Angels, Demons, Dragons,
Fauns, Centaurs, Aliens, Ponies,
Ferals and Unicorns.
We come in a Myraid of Shapes,
Sizes colors, and styles.
And yet we are ALL THE
SAME
We are NOT Manikins!

WE are The People of Second Life!
We are Relay for of Second
Life!

UNITED WE RELAY
TO BRIDGE THE
GAP!

Ten years of Hope….

And we can hope and dream that before the next ten years are up a cure is found..




Click for Bigger


This is the end of the last day of Fantasy Faire's big Tenth Anniversary event. Started in 2008. And I've been blogging it since 2012, more then half of its time on the grid.



I feel so honored to be a blogger for those years. Every year I get told I am selected once again makes my heart soar. And I hope to still be able to do so for as long as the Faire is around and needed.



This year I am grateful that no one in my life has been lost or lost a love one to Cancer during the run. I still have some fighting it but they are on the winning side of their battles right now if not almost beaten it.



One day this fight will be over for EVERYONE and the Fairelands Junction will forever fade into the mist. with perhaps maybe one last hurrah as a party to celebrate the end of Cancer.



This past year was not that year, but we still dealt the Unweaver a HUGE blow with the funds raised in the time the lands where up.… Read the rest

Ardessa hosts this year’s Fairelands Quest: the location where all the brave adventurers will do their best to aid the Bard Queen.


All my photos of this sim can be seen at this link here

And here we have the last sim. Its a beautiful sim with so much hidden in its forests I could spend hours or days finding it all. But it is also the QUEST sim and so I was on a search for those items! I do highly recommend doing the quest. Theres a link up above and on every sim you can get a stand alone hud for 250L or one with an outfit by Silvan Moon Designs for 350L. Male and female versions. Both Hud packages give you the hud, and a shoulder version of Cheer the Dragon. which you get to keep at the end of the hunt. And besides those you get a TON of prizes for your small fee and that link doesn't even show ALL of them.

I think this was my favorite quest to date. Did NOT see the end coming!… Read the rest

Click here for a list of all the stores on Aetherea with SLURL's to their main stores and to the sim 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 exclusive items, or items by FF vendors only.


So many elegant shops here! many old favs and some new ones. And of course the Creators store Fallen gods which is one of the best fantasy skin stores out there! However, despite Alia doing his best to heal the sim, my computer is old and needs an upgrade and still didn't like it. But that's not the sims fault..but I only got a few shots in before I had to give up and not blog the rest of the items I could have.

I so need a new comp for next years Fantasy Faire!





Silvan Moon Designs did both of the outfits I have on for this sim. This one here is the lovely Golden Age Baroque gown.… Read the rest

So here is the last of the shopping sims. After this its just the quest sim. And we have a FULL EXTRA WEEK OF FAIRE to do shopping and questing !! The sims will be open till May 7th!

Aetherea, has quite a story behind it, and not tied to the build story. That kinda mirrors the cancer journey. It rose from the faire mist a shining beacon of beauty, then, when faire opened, the sim got sick so very sick. I don't know how other then it was so bad Lindens got involved, the sim got taken offline, wiped clean and Alia even rebuilt the entire thing and a new sim was put in place. Looked the same but, healthier. There's a video here

Now, other then that.… Read the rest

As said before Tiny Town is THE place for Tiny avatars! So many shops focused on them! I had a few outfits that fit my normal avatar then went...what the heck and switched to several full tiny avatars, One of which is FREE at the hubs and the other is also at every hub not just on Tiny Town!




Lets start with one of my fav shots here. This is set up on the sim so you to can get your photo taken with all these tinies! And in it I am wearing the Aquitaine Gown by Little to large which is just a lovely colorful gown that fit in well with the colors of Tiny Town. I paired it with !Lyrical B!zarre's - Histrya Necklace & Crown which are elegant items and come in a few metals and stone colors you can see a close up here




the other dress is by Jenara called Darla and it is a sweet short lil thing and the hud comes with a LOT of colors and patterns to chose from.… Read the rest

Welcome to Tiny Town! Tiny Capital since the dawn of tiny time! All the Waffles you eat came from here. All those things you say “awwr!!! so cute” to, were born here and all the colors you know of were here before anyone ever saw them!
For this special occasion Tiny Town opens the door to their world… Or in the case of those biggies they just blew a hole in the wall. Tiny Town welcomes everyone big or small, winged or finned! Rivvrdanz with us all night!

All my photos of this sim can be seen at this link here

Tiny Town is the most adorable place on the entire grid and if you do not agree with this THEN YOU ARE WRONG. A home for those cute lil critters that many people chose to play, many are scattered about the town doing tiny things. There is of course waffles, and wootjuice and just, all over cuteness. I love the paint splattered parchment look that the buildings walls have . All the bits and bobs from other sims the builder has made for Fantasy faire, like the balloons and the pennants.… Read the rest

Willows has some lovely stores on it, a good mix of them too so theres something for everyone here I'd say. I've got a few nice outfits to show you so lets get to that. OH and check out the gacha's at the landing point! Some great items themed to all the sims!





We'll start with a gorgous gown by Senzafine called Lothiriel in the hope color. I really love the brocade texture on it. I paired it with a necklace from Titans called the Bard Queens Legacy it uses the Faire logo and you can see a close up of it here




Next is a gown by Les Enchanted called Lucrezia in a really lush shade of green and like I want to pet the velvet texture of it and the gemstones at the neckline just sparkle.… Read the rest

This sim is just, calming. You can sit for hours among the willows on the banks of the water and just, feel so at peace. It has a simplistic but regale beauty to it. The focal point of it all is the goddess statue spilling water out of a bowl as if to calm you with the sound.


It's a welcoming sim. Just find a spot and relax in it.

Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim – The Halls of Story

THE HALLS OF STORY | SLURL
Sponsored by Cerridwen’s Cauldron. The Halls of Story by Elicio Ember. – Literary Festival & Live at the Fairechylde 
Once upon a time there was a race of ancient beings, older than humans, older than dwarves, some say even older than the elves and the folk. These beings were story-tellers and song-singers, their songs and stories shaped many cultures. This is their Hall. Here they gathered many of their tales. Some were light and happy, some were sad, some were dark. Some were even dangerous. As the aeons passed, these beings faded into story themselves, and the hall fell silent and in the end, it was forgotten. It was the Elves who found it anew, restored it, and opened it and its tales to all races and realms. Since then, the Halls of Story have gathered tales from many times, races, and places, and some say…even many realities. Welcome to the Halls of Story.

I have decided that it is impossible for Elicio Ember to not make a just stunningly gorgeous sim.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim – Severina

SEVERINA | SLURL
Sponsored by BattleBeast Breedables.
Severina by Lokii Violet.
From the mists, the village peeks from beneath it’s blanketing shadow, spires that reach to the heavens for salvation that never comes.. It’s spoken only as a myth to some, where creatures of the darkness hold dominion over the very light itself to swaddle the island in the goddess of the night’s sway. Severina sings like a siren’s call, beckoning the wayward travelers from their domiciles; stray not too far without a lantern, and raise your glass and tip your hat to the ferryman, for he may be the last one that sees you to that good rest if you don’t make it to the next night.

And from the brightness of the Story Well into the darkness of Severina we go. This sim is Gothic beauty at its finest, even the sea is purple. The harbor is guarded by sentinels high on lighted towers looking down while the buildings loom along the edges.… Read the rest

The Story Well by Lilia Artis & Haveit Neox Main Performance Stage & Fantasy Faire Art Gallery
Horseshoe shaped island which rises from the ocean like a hill. Covered by bright houses and a castle at the summit with the look of a naive painting with primary colors. In the proximity of the castle is a well which is also the entry to the world below the sea; a realm of fantasy creatures. In the far corner of the sim is the performance stage made out of rafts, nearly flush with the ocean.  The audience seats are on sheets of paper that appear to be floating between the stage and the cave entrance at the base of the hill island. The hillside not facing the stage will have a harbor with the fantasy art galleries.

This sim just, makes you happy to see it. The bright colors, the crayon kids drawings and playdo buildings. its just a fun build. Up on land AND underwater, I am sure i missed things!… Read the rest
