A suitcase full of Hope..




Relay is, once again,, over for the year.


This year seemed a, much calmer year, then in the past but still a grand one. Steelhead is back with its own team. That felt good and right, though we will have to work on getting people on during relay weekend next year to camp sit. It was empty a lot due to not a whole lot of us on the track. I plan to be at what ever camp we have a lot next year though. This year I managed TWENTY laps. Mostly due to the smaller amount of sims then in past years. The track was the smallest it's been since 2006, when it was 4,065. This year it was 6,758 meters, last year it was 9,000. It hasn't dipped below 8000 meters since 2006. So, yeah that helped me with a record laps. But it was still also a lot of work and next year, I'm gonna take it easy. I'll have earned all three lap awards so, yeah. No need to try to break any personal records. Camp sit, explore the builds DURING the relay. take more shots of the other teams. It'll be fun!

We had a total of 996 avatars come to the sims, and the current US total is $207,311 since March!… Read the restA suitcase full of Hope..

For Kali

Just as Fantasy Faire ended this past April, We lost a bright light, A cancer warrior to pancreatic cancer. I've known Kai for years, before I got on SL and she's been so brave and such an inspiration to everyone. She is loved and is missed.



Thinking of her now, as the Luminary ceremony is held. And all the others that I know have been lost to this horrible disease, But mostly Kali. Fly high on those Fairy wings my friend, you earned them.

We’re baaaacccckkkkkk




After a year off Steelhead is back in Relay for Life of Secondlife and the Salmons are ready to hit the track this weekend!! Our camp is on Celebrate

I missed the Salmons last year, the Aether Chrononauts where warm and welcoming and it was nice to be with them. But the Salmons are family and Steelhead is home. This just feels better to be Relaying with them again.


Relay starts this Saturday at 10am SLT and will run till Sunday at when ever we crash but the closing ceremonies are also at 10 am slt. Full Schedule of events is at this page

I'll be there the full 24+ hours and on the track! It's a little smaller *track map* then in past years so I am hoping to make a new lap record. And REALLY hoping the track behaves as wonderfully as it did last year.

also if you can't make it in world, you can donate at this handy link below!! And you'll be able to listen to the Relay events at http://t1radio.serverroom.us:8242 just pop that into your music listening program of choice, I use Winamp..… Read the restWe're baaaacccckkkkkk

Finding Myself ~Art in Second Life~

We all find ourselves lost and astray at some point in Second Life. I know I have a few times. It is another existence after all. But this time I am not astray and lost in SL. However I do feel very much this way in real life. I feel anxious and lost and like everything […]

“Sitting alone with many friends who have lost their fight in the ACS “Catt Gable” Memorial Garden, I had a chance to reflect on the many things that give me reason to relay and why it is important to me. Our team is very special and a very global team in relay. We are all … Continue reading From the Desk of OldeSoul →

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.

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

Devious Mind released some special Relay colors of a few of their current outfits. I am showing off their Datura outfit here. Along with a Relay item from Eternal Dream over on Dawn's Promise. As with all deviousMind outfits its so well made. I love the rose details on the neck and back for this outfit.

Sunday musings, for all those who relay

‘Some say love, it is a river That drowns the tender reed. Some say love, it is a razor That leaves your soul to bleed. Some say love, it is a hunger, An endless aching need.

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

Not quite as many outfits from this sim. Mostly, as if you are a tiny or a dinkie avatar wearer this is the sim you want to go to! I wear neither so I don't have any of those to blog. But GO TO THE HILL if you do! So many designers for those types of avatars!

Lets start with this gorgeous ball gown from Aleutia. This gown comes with a hud that lets you change the color of several parts to mix and match. The top is slightly sheer but the bottom is full satin and flows so nicely.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire 2017 Sim – The Hill

THE HILL | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Titans & Solarium.
The Hill  by Kilik Lekvoda.
A peaceful and beautiful village built into the rolling hills surrounding a small lake. Breathe in warmth, peace, and maybe a little pipe smoke, A place where friendships sprout as readily as the mushrooms beneath leafy green trees.
All my photos of the sim are at this link

Welcome to the magical realm of the Hill. Or, as you will quickly learn, could also be called the Shire. This sim is a wonderfully sunny build that you expect to see Hobbits or a wizard pulling up in a cart at any moment. There's even a party going on! It's a super cheerful sim that just makes you happy to be in.

There are duck, goats, and bunnies, which I love. Also its a grand sim to prance about in that deer avatar from Chaddul Ro in. Whole flocks can be seen at times. That avatar has been a HUGE hit at the faire this year.

This is another of the Roleplay sims and you can learn more about it here

I had a LOT of lovely things from the creators on Raven's Perch. I really had to limit it down some so I sadly am unable to blog everything I was given. Fantasy Faire creators are so generous! Us bloggers love them for all they do. SO I picked a few outfits to show off, one even steps waayy out my usual comfort zone. But it was an lovely item otherwise so I chose to showcase it.

Lets start with a full outfit by Roped Passions

And thanks to the magic of gyazo I can now show off animated things! WOOT!

Ok so first up. Two totally different looks by Les Encantades.




This gorgeous ball gown called Sandrine in the Rose color. It utterly did not match the sim in theme but I kinda love the contrast there in truth. It has a full train in the back and the fabric falls wonderfully about the legs.




The next dress is a shorter more warrior like dress called Wanda and I have it on in Burgundy. I parried it with this great sword by Fallen Arms called Unity Maxim Steel Longsword .… Read the rest
