Through the Looking Glass ~Wonderland Inspiration~

Hold the looking glass as steady as you can. Peer closely and you may find the rabbit girl if you are lucky. She is very hard to spot and quite tricky to glimpse.  It’s times like this when one is very lucky to have fallen down that deep deep hole. Please click the image to... Read More

Growth of a Forest Fae

They begin their lives as petite fae, dancing with the lights on the bottom of the forest, on its waters and moss-covered hills. Their wings, their magic, can barely hold them afloat, but as they explore, as they dance, their enchantments grow stronger. They practice by flying higher, landing on branches as large as roads, walking on them with tiny steps until trying to reach the higher foliage again. On their way higher they begin to grow. The forest is ancient and it takes them years to fly up, years as they grow in size and magic. The foliage begins to thin, small beams of light tease them, lure them higher. Then one day they break through the leaves into the light and touch the dawn. It is a blinding moment after the safety of the dark embrace of forest shadows. Blinding moment of growth when all the roads are not only open, but non-existent. Sky is open, sky has no limits. The last weekend of Fantasy Faire 2017 is upon us. The official event program ends on Sunday, but we will have a six-hour closing party on Monday to wrap things up thoroughly.… Read the rest

Living at The Rose

The statues at The Rose are alive. You wouldn’t know it at first glance as they stand on their pedestals, pose in their carefully selected spots, frozen in moments of activity. You wouldn’t — couldn’t — guess, but it is true. Their sculptor imbued them with life and spirit full of humor and mischief. The moment you glance away, they end up giving merry buntoinettes unicorn rides and playing Fantasy Football with pigeons. When you glance back, they’re gone, only the sudden breeze revealing that something incredibly fast zoomed by. The breeze and a faint eeeeeee-sound in the wind. When playing with their flesh-and-blood friends, they often pretend to freeze back to statues again. That way you might see statues where there wasn’t any yesterday, nor will there be tomorrow. When asked, the blame is always on the Magician tending to The Rose. The statues couldn’t move on their own, after all. Especially not in the Fairelands.Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Egregore

EGREGORE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Epic Toy Factory. Egregore  by Mayah Parx.
A fantastical thoughtform of serene darkness immersed in light, a place where expected purpose is relative and surrealism casts it shadow across the land, inhabited by egregors this fantastical place is born of the collective phantasmagoria of its people. All of my photos of this sim can be seen at this link here

Egregore is a quirky but, a bit creepy, sim by one of my favorite sin designers, the toymaker herself Mayah Parx! Egregore has the feeling of a childs toy box scattered about the landscape, with the shops being in giant doll houses made for the giant doll like enhabatines of the sim. Other bits of toys, candy, and some of her past sims, dot the landscape. Be sure to walk on the piano keys!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Fallen Sands

FALLEN SANDS | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by Merchants of Dreams. Fallen Sands by Sweetgwendoline Bailey & Eldowyn Inshan.
Steampunk in a desert landscape where the Orient and Arabia via for dominance. Exotic plants of alien origin turn the sands into an oasis of life where the turquoise water is the treasure of fountains and the infinite pearls of tan fall to mark the passage of time in this eternal city.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


This steampunk desert oasis has a charm of its own. The skeletons scattered about beg to have a story written about them. There is just so much to see in this sim. From the rusty copper birds flying about, to the great lightbulb flowers. You just want to know more about them all. Or write your own story. Even the creatures in the water have their own charm.

Have your sounds on in this sim as well. There are orbs of various sounds scattered about to immerse you even more.

She Walks on Water

She walks on water, each step barely dipping pale toes in, causing small ripples. Each ripple sprouts life, drawing forth plants, flowers reaching up to the daylight, up to her. 
She walks on water, and the flowers bloom with magic, swirling in the breeze like fireworks, delighting in the footsteps of Spring. Pictures taken in Fantasy Faire: The Spirit Pool Cerridwen’s Cauldron – Sky Blossom Set* at Fantasy Faire: The Hill

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – The Spirit Pool

THE SPIRIT POOL | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Lost Unicorn Gallery. The Spirit Pool  by Kayle Matzerath.
Since the beginning of time, The Spirit Pool has served as a resting place for weary adventurers and lingering souls that are not quite yet ready to cut their ties to the physical realm. Mermaids and other seafolk use the pool for gatherings and a constant flow of visitors keep it a popular place for trading.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


There are very few times, even with as amazing and breath taking as the Fantasy Faire Sims are. That one makes me say something out loud with how jaw dropping it is.

The Spirit Pool would be one of those few sims. First time I panned into it I just had to gasp and go WOW at the screen. Seeing the ginormous sandstone goddess just appear into my view with the sun right behind her head. Awestruck. Just awestruck. The way the statues arms open wide and envelope the buildings below, its like she's saying. Welcome to the Spirit Pool, I will ease your burdens, Rest now traveler in my healing waters.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – The Rose

THE ROSE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by Fallen Gods Inc. The Rose  by Alia Baroque.
In the Garden of senses silent footsteps echo through rich vaults of opulence and decadence, searching for the perfect spot where a stolen kiss can be unseen and languid murderous thoughts hidden behind a mask. This Rose blossoms in April through your gaze that tells her how beautiful she is.
All my photos of the sim are at this link

Alia Baroque's sim for each fantasy faire is always eagerly anticipated and there is a wait list *I assume anyway* to be one of the lucky stores to have a shop on it. You'll find some well known SL brands on his sim.

This years sim makes me think of Venice Italy. Tall weathered multi storied buildings, Waterways instead of streets, statues littered all about and rooftop gardens and parks. It speaks of an elegance of a bygone era that is still managing to hang on. Calming yet, mysterious, one expects to see gondolas in the water and find all sorts of hidden areas scattered about.… Read the rest

POSES!! I FOUND A POSE STORE! I bought like everything they had and will be using them in other sims as well. The store is Eternal Dream and all the poses in this post are by them. Some have props others do not. Pose stores is one thing Fantasy Faire is lacking a lot of this year.

Anyway. Some lovely gowns, and rezable land items. In fact, I'd say 80% of the sim can be bought to take home. Love that about the Looking Glass.

Gowns first!

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – Dawn’s Promise

DAWN’S PROMISE | SLURL| SHOPS
Sponsored by The Looking Glass.
Dawn’s Promise  by Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee.
A secret place between times where the old becomes reborn into the new. Majestic crumbling ruins dissolve into a sea of glorious foliage. A place where the lost energies of the past are converted into new life. Springs of life-giving water overflow. Flower petals and creative energy float on the breeze. This is the space between the exhale and the inhale. Full of hope and promise.
All my photos of the sim are at this link


I love this sim so much. I want to live in it. It's just a blissful, colorful, calming sim. Marcus and Sharni have scattered all sorts of cozy little nooks to rest in and enjoy the faire day with. I plan to pick up a number of them. They are so delightfully boho and fae like.

That the buildings are on what can only be described as upside down mountains adds to the magical ethereal feeling. Dozens of waterfalls spilling off of them into the water below add a calming effect.… Read the rest
