Relay is over once again.

Click for bigger

I usually try to do this Sunday evening, but I was to mind mushed still from Relay to manage it. It's kinda a surreal year. The Relay track this year, FILLED with many amazing camp sights, felt odd. Why? Nearly everyone was getting the best performance they have ever gotten from it. I crashed a mere FIVE times! FIVE! normally I crash that many times with in the first lap, which also normally takes about 2 hours to make. This year no crashes that first lap and it took me less then an hour to make it. And overall I had no rubber banding, and only had two sim crossing parties, and one of those was due to the sim being full, not because it went down.

And it wasn't just me getting a great performance out of the track. Loads of people had an amazing personal record setting day. Whatever the Relay committee did to get it to behave so well, they need to keep doing! The only down side to this is my usual challenge of buy a luminary when you crash did not earn as much as it usually does!… Read the rest

A time to Remember


Click for Bigger


I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to write on this post right now. And all I can think of is a friend from Mischief Managed, that became close fast, who lost their Dad in May of this year to cancer. It happened suddenly as well, diagnosed and then passed in a week. It was so hard on them. My heart aches for them and their loss so much.

And then I turn to thoughts of two wonderful ladies I know through Renaissance faires. Both of them battling Breast Cancer, Both doing amazing with their fights. Survivor hearts! I would expect nothing less from them.

And then I turn to thoughts of yet another friend who is still fighting her two year battle with pancreatic cancer. She is so strong and amazing.

And so, I chose to write down about them.

And honor them all.

Lets get ready to RELAY!


Click for bigger


Steelhead sat out this year as our own team and a lot of us, as well as other Steamlanders, merged with Aether Chrononauts for the season. So I am waiting for the start of Relay in front of their lovely castle build, that is flying with all the flags of Secondlifes Steamlands.

This year I am relaying for a number of people, but I have nothing to represent them on. Just my usual items. But several Ren Faire friends are fighting Breast Cancer and one Mischief Managed friend lost his Dad this past May to Cancer. Hoping to get him on the track for a bit when he gets home from work.

One hour till Relay starts! BOOYAH!!

I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to wrap up my posts for this Fantasy Faire. It's easy to forget in all the fun, fantasy and shopping why we are doing this.

But Monday night, during the faire, I was told some news that made it all hit home.

A friend of mine from the Mischief Managed sim told me that they had learned the previous Friday that their father had been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. And i had to sit there, and just think, and realize, that is why we do this. So no one ever again has to be told things like that. So that one day we will find a cure. And until then people like my friend have a place to turn to for help if they need it.

It's for him and his family that we raised L$ 7,378,209 ($ 29,513) in funds. It's for people like my darling friends at OKRF that are going through breast cancer right now. It's even for my best friend's mothers dog that has cancer.

And its for my friend, Chase, that I dedicate all the posts I made this year for Fantasy Faire to.… Read the rest

A very bright and pastel watercolored village that harnesses the wind to turn it into magical energy.



Breeze is a lovely sunny and simple build. But there is still a lot to see. The tent that holds the Sponsors store is just fabulous, as is the giant fish fountain in the middle of the sim. Look around spot little things! Enjoy the sun!

Malfience is the world for The Fairelands Quest: The Tale of Exiles.
The blessed realm of Belfience was once an idyllic home to a multitude of peoples: Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Mer, and Dragons. All shared the beauty and bounty of the land, prospering together in peace and harmony.
But the Unweaver saw their joy, and hated it, and set about to destroy it utterly.



Malfience is the quest sim for this years Faire Hunt, The Tale of Exiles * Information here * and it is SOOO worth it to do! You get so much for your 250L or 350L ! I only have photos of the sim here, I didn't take any on the quest to save the surprise. But if you need a guide, Primdolls has put up her usually extremely helpful one here and here

I haven't gotten a chance to go over all the prizes, you get your usual bits of the sims in the first part, and things from many MANY creators in the second. The one I HAVE opened was KittyCats and its a SHOULDER VERSION of the Faerie Kitty!… Read the rest

Bright Haven (Kilik Lekvoda)
A fairytale market town brimming with wonder, happiness and magic. A stroll down the cobble streets might see you breaking out in song accompanied by your woodland friends.







So, at one point while exploring this bright lil town, I made some unholy squealing sounds, flailed about in my chair and scared the cat sitting on my desk. I will show you why in the photos.



The town itself, is lovely change of pace from all the darker Fantasy Faire sims, Bright colors, Pinwheels, and a happy mood just emit from the build. I loved it.



You can see all my photos of it here.

Dangarnon (Jaimy Hancroft/Eowyn Swords)
Villains roam the cobbled streets of a fallen Andolys where evil rolled in and blotted out the light. Skeletons of what once was are all that remain. Rotting and crooked the stone houses and towers are a sad reflection of their former glory. Darkness hangs over the land like a heavy blanket suffocating any ray of light. But even here, in all this blackness a shimmer of hope has managed to hide and survive, a tiny piece of what once was this magical place still lives within these dead walls. Perhaps all is not lost yet…


If you don't remember Andolys it was my favorite sim from last year and you can read about it here. Dangarnon continues the story of this fairy tale land, which sadly has not reaced a happy ending....yet. While you explore its crowded crooked streets click the things! There is so much to find in this sim. All tucked away into corners or back alleys.… Read the rest

Sapphire Mirror Lake – Arts and Entertainment Sim (Haveit Neox)
On the first warm day of Spring every year, the people at Sapphire Mirror Lake reconstruct an Iron Age skeleton of what we may call today a mythical beast: the centaur. It is said the secrets of a powerful lost technology are locked in their bones. This year, they have unearthed a 20 meter high gargantuan, but will it speak?
This is the Arts and Entertainment sim of Fantasy Faire 2016, with a central stage for a variety of first-rate performances, and two galleries featuring Fantasy themed art from the collections of some of the best photographers in Second Life. The story above sets the mood for the builds of the sim, both above and below sea level. Please dive in!

Every so often you run into something that just, for no reason you can put into words, just fills you with joy and makes you happy.

This sim did that for me. I just, love it.… Read the rest

First outfit from the creators of Serenity I have to show you is Tayren's Fantasy Fashion's Caera dress. A wispy princes dress that is a mix of mesh and flexi prims. So it still has a bit of that flow about you from the normal prims but fits like mesh. It comes with the tiara I am wearing. And not shown is a complete avatar, skin, hair ,shape eyes. All for one low price that goes right to the ACS.

I am also using in this photo a pose from Curvosity's Winged Pose Set .

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sim – Serenity

Serenity | SLURL | SHOPS

Serenity (Kaelis Ember)
They say there are one thousand steps to the top of Serenity, an ancient city, every nook and cranny carved to perfection, smooth curves, beautiful terraces, stunning waterfalls, latticed windows. Built by ageless hands so many moons ago, they also say that those who ascend to the top of the city will discover something more valuable than gold, the knowledge we’re not alone in our fights.



Serenity is a peaceful, somewhat elven looking town surrounding a lake fed by small waterfalls. Everything is clean and sparkling. Candles are scattered about the town giving it an almost holy feeling. And at the center of the town a majestic tree, hung with balls filled with Mistletoe, stands, overlooking the lake below.

It's a really lovely yet simple build. I loved the tree the best.

You can see all my photos at this link here.
