Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim - The Bazaar Dungeon

The Bazaar Dungeon | SLURL | SHOPS
Sponsored by Secrets of Gaia.

The Bazaar Dungeon Designed by Loki Eliot.

An ancient Elven prison, once filled with shifting walls to trap the incarcerated, now breached, opened and repurposed for trade. A subterranean world, where the glowing path assures safety and passages remain as yet unexplored – perhaps trapped, perhaps filled with undiscovered treasures worthy of the risk. And at the center of it all, the ever-watching eye, ancient guardian of this place, waiting to rest its gaze upon those who tread too carelessly.


All my photos of this sim are at This link here

Fantasy Faire Roleplay is in this sim! Read about the Magpies and the plot at this link

Table Top Gaming is in this sim! A new fun thing for this year in Fantasy Faire, Learn more here

IF YOU CAN MANAGE IT YOU WANT TO HAVE MATERIALS ENABLED IN YOUR GRAPHICS ON THIS SIM! There are things you will miss if you do not have them running. I am not even kidding. And the change between with and with out is mind blowing. There is a mirror that Loki did and I can not EVEN figure out how he managed it Click here if the below video does not play


Like, the mirror image has depth of field! And its not just a prim with a box hiding the room, there is nothing behind it. HOW DID YOU DO THIS LOKI?!?! But if you do not have materials enabled all you see is a blank black image..

This is a sim you can get lost in, it has a maze, things will try to kill you in the maze, there are twists and turns and so much to see and find. I know I didn't even manage half of it. Go and explore! Join in on the Magpie roleplay , or a table top session! Have fun!

Astrid's Nemeton Designed by lrriven

Welcome traveler to these lands of hope.
This is a place where miracles happen, where magic lives on the air and graces every being who walks its paths. Here the cursed come seeking refuge and the blessed offer a guiding hand to those in need. These are the lands of faerie, just on the edge of humanities borders. This is the seat of the last of the great druids; Astrid. Her nemeton, the rocky crags, hidden grottos, and lush plateaus is a safe home for all of the fae.
Many who breach our borders come seeking salvation, and we can offer that. But we are faerie and everything has its price.

Astrid’s Nemeton hosts all the teams of One Team Initiative, as well as the information headquarters for the KNH Hope Hostel. It also features the second performance stage, The Theatre of the Mists.

I'm back a day later then planned, Ren Faire Kicked my tail and I was dead on Monday. I had a day with nothing on it so I HOPE I can still get all the posts in before end of Fantasy Faire. Wont be an issue next year though. Ren Faire date is getting moved to later in the year.


At first I thought this was just a simple but stunning sim build. Pretty with some outstanding features, but then I looked harder.

And Then I found the quest on it. And OMG the small hidden details tucked away in hard to find spots due to that are amazing! And a few I never did find out what they where for. The quest starts by the stage and takes you all over the sim. Make sure you have some free attachment points as you have to wear stuff to advance.

It's adorable and sweet and I loved it though! It's called Nic's Quest. Do go on it!

Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim -Pools of Ethuil - Creators

Click here for a list of all the stores on Pools of Ethuil 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 exclusive items, or items by FF vendors only.

I had a lot of fun with the stuff I was gifted as a blogger for this sim. Mostly clothing though so I bought a few rezable items to show off





I love this dress by Stitched so much, for a unique reason. The dress, called Ginnifer, is based on one of the outfits from the movie Snow White and the Huntsman! And I do love SL outfits based on RL movies! I paired it with a necklace from Plastik called RFL Sword Pendant. A close up of the necklace can be seen here




And now we have Belle Epoque Relay offerings. An ADORABLE Purple Broccoli avatar, that also comes with a cuddle doll, and THE symbol of this years Fantasy Faire, The Crown. I AM THE QUEEN OF BROCCOLI!!



Plastik has a dress to offer as well, comes in three shades of purple and I'm wearing the middle shade. It's called Areanae and was a collaboration with Storybook. I love the materials and texturing on this.



The last dress I have to show you is a cute little fairy outfit by Whymsical Marketplace called Lothlorien Fairy, I paired it with the rainbowy magical necklace by Illusions called the Niobium Silumira Necklace



Last dress..oh yes...last uuh..clothing? NOPE here is a full avatar by Rainy Fey Creations, the Robot Avatar "Magic" and crown. It's SASSY..and check out the back!




And lastly the few rez items I picked up. A couple dream catchers from a relay Gacha by Rowenwood and By Tylar's Treasures The Faerie light with Butterfly flower in gold.


And with this post I'm off till Monday. Real life Renfaire here I come!

Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim -Pools of Ethuil

Pools of Ethuil Searlait Nitschke)
Nestled among the highest branches of spring trees, the southern Elves make their home above watery lowlands. This is a tranquil, mystical place in the heart of nature, wrought from the gentle shades of nature’s palette, where aerial pathways hang in the spaces between dwellings and the leaves are warmed by sun above and lights below.

All my photos of this sim are at This link here


The Pools of Ethuil is a beautiful elven village nestled among tall trees. It has a calm tranquil feeling that just washes over you as you sit and relax in it.

The center highlight of the sim is the pool in the middle that leads up to and helps set off the building that houses Rowenwood's store. Perched atop it is a mystical Red crystal that spins and floats among smaller sparkles.

But nestled about are small hidden areas, including a very special one dedicated so someone that loved Mushrooms. See if you can find it and read about her!

Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim -Falls of Hope - Creators

Click here for a list of all the stores on Falls of Hope 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 exclusive items, or items by FF vendors only.

First blog post of vendors for Fantasy faire! And there are some LOVELY items at Falls of Hope. And even more that I'm not showing off! Plus you can buy bits of the sim already!

Lets start with a dress from a store that has always had gowns I look forwards to wearing Poet's Heart!




This is the Delight gown in the Dreams color, Lovely pinkness and I love the soft jacquard pattern on the silk. I paired it with the Goddess Diadem by Bite and Claw and you can see it in detail here.



Next up a beautiful gown by MishMash Fusion, their Something True Gown, the raw silk looking skirts spill down from a Embrodered bodice with just a touch of gold on the hem. I paired it with a necklace i am sure to wear often Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions Hope Necklace Close up here and lastly I have on the Amanda Hair by Analog Dog which sadly I do not do justice with as its a long single brain down the middle of the back.




Next up is a fun feathered dress by Soraida called Geraldine, I paired it with a none Relay Vendor item by Jewelry by Jake called FAIRY TALES Necklace. Its part of a set and the belly charm from the set IS a Relay item, but I wanted the necklace more. All of the set uses the same delicate filigree that you can see here OH and the handsome chappy I'm next to? You can get him as well from Bad Katz! As well as some friends of his!



And here we have a stunning gown by Acios named Hellkiss , it came with wings and horns and some other stuff but I just wanted the gown. ALSO if you've ever thought "eeh no one uses materials" or can't run them..LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING *click here* The first part of that, is my everyday settings, no materials, and lower graphics in general. THEN I go to Ultra for blog photos and...LOOK AT THAT CHANGE. I gasped when I saw the pattern emerge! It really changes he entire look of the gown! I've paired this gown with a Tiara also by Acios called Galadria, a set of stacked bracelets by LOULOU&CO called Arminas, and lastly the sword and pose are by Poseidon and are called The Swallow




My last outfit from Falls of Hope is the Elation Elven Gown in the Atmosphere color by MishMash Fusion. I paired it with the spectacular headdress by Acios called Gaia Crown ~Flower Dream~ the jewelery is by Bite and claw and is part of the Lyta set. And lastly the pose and prop is by Air called Lunae, it has poses built into it but they are a little tricky to find the right spot to "sit" to get to them. Just keep clicking till you do it!

Now onto the items for your home and garden!



Here's my buddy again with some of HIS buddies! He's by Bad Katz and both are called Forest Keeper, one with a bird one with a Butterfly, and then the Tortoise is a Mossy Tortoise .



Here we have the Lunae by Air again, so you can see it without me in front of it. I personally think it would look great resized down and on a mantel Next to it is ChiMia's Ephemeral Fireplace. Would look great in an elegantly disrepair home.



And lastly we have some of the many, many, plants you can get from Fantasy China! The one on the left bobs up and down with bubbles!

Fantasy Faire 2018 Sim -Falls of Hope

Falls of Hope | SLURL | SHOPS

Falls of Hope (Sweetgwendoline Bailey/Eldowyn Inshan)
Cliffs rise high above, with bridges to provide a path for travellers between the caves that have been adopted by intrepid traders. Around them, waterfalls and plants that hang towards the floor where, again, more caves provide a home for delights brought by travellers from far away. The whole, then, becomes a rising gallery of water and vegetation, lush and tranquil.

All my photos of this sim are at This link here

I always go clockwise about the Fairelands so the first sim after the junctions that I entered was Falls of Hope. At first I thought it was going to be a bare desolate sim with a lot of bones and dead trees scattered about.

I could not have been more wrong.

The sim is vibrant with plants, animals and of course the shops. You start by going up a thick vine bridge out of the waters of the Junctions and go through a series of shops in little alcoves with glowing fences that have a very Lord of the Rings vibe to them. At the central point there is a meeting tree and to get to it you ZIP LINE. Loads of fun! It's circled by some oversized butterflies.

Between each alcove are the falls themselves, which spill down into the lands below and feed the vegetation and animals. The grand central alcove is carved like a great dragon to watch over all. Down on the grounds you will find all manner of critters, magical and mundane, I think my fav is the flamingo family. And some cute troll like creatures guard the ground.

There is defiantly something to spot at every turn and so many wonderful shops!

I am as usual, showing off my base Fantasy faire exploration outfit in this post. Since the Fairelands Junction has no stores on it. All windlights you see in the photos I take are the sim wind lighting, As will be with all the sims.

Fairelands Junction hosts portals to all the other sims as well as the Memorial Area. Do not rush out of the Junction, find your way through its paths in exploration!


To see all my photos click this link here

Saiyge has given us an amazing underwater Junction and its so pretty. Follow the sparkling path about the underwater caverns to find all the things in the sim, including a return of the Wordlings! I think my favorite plant underwater this year is these glowing pearls in ferns.

And then up top of the water you have gently rocking gondola's and towering rock formations which house the memory candles. Each rock also has dangling glass jewels to sparkle in the sun. And the center point of it all, up top, is a light house sending out a beacon of hope to everyone touched by Cancer. You can access it underwater via a staircase.

Disney bounding is always better with a Friend.

So heres the fun thing I mentioned yesterday. Saffron Foxclaw and I did a joint Disney Bound for the Disney Cats day. We where Duchess and Thomas from the Aristocats!





you can see her version of it at her blog at Saffrons Place

Its so very neat to see how two bloggers can take a photo of the exact same thing and have them turn out different. I used a windlight that gave a soft sepia tone to it all and she did a brighter one that made it look more like a party with the lights!

And I'm flat out swiping her credits, she made the pose herself on her private land

An Amazing decade

Ten years ago I would never have imagined what lay in store for me when I made a Secondlife Account

So many memories, friends, stories, its just mind blowing how its all gone down.

So heres to ten years past and ten years to go! All the more memories to make!


Went to Ode and took my usual new profile photo, here's the full version!





And in a bit I'll have a special post of something fun I did with one of the many friends I've made in those ten years! It was great fun!
