Inspired by the lovely Honeysuckle Fairy dress (complete with wings!) from Paper Moon, I went full fairy today and flitted about the Faireland Junctions. This stunning sim, which is the waypoint to all the other sims, is built by the talented Sayige Lotus of Balderdash. Its amazingly lush, with huge trees that make you feel like a pixie and masses of fantastic flowers everywhere. Make sure you don’t just pass through it!
One of the most impressive and well made builds of Fantasy Faire is The Spirit Pool. Both massive and vast it seems larger than it’s sim borders would suggest. Be sure and visit.
From Independent Objects, this is the Elf Warrior Danicya Grey set. Mesh body and standard size fits are included in the pack. Other colors are available.
I had been wearing my Bento Rings from MEVA all week, but in gold. Aware of a fashion faux pas in the making, I unpacked the silver set. Just a pretty! Find them at Epiphany.
My sleek hair is Monica from Rama.Salon. The huds include five base colors per color set (blonds dark, blonds light, blondes pale for example) with two choices of roots. Very pretty. Three sizes are included in the pack. Find Monica at Tres Chic.
My ERSCH Hannah Necklace in black is also available at Tres Chic.
STORYLINE: Water lapped at the edges of the Piazza San Marco as the night sky softened to pinks and purples. A lone figure emerged from the shadows carrying a violin case and music stand. He was dressed in formal clothes from another time period. In any other city, he would have drawn stares however this was Venice. Wearing a mask was not considered odd either. As the man took off his cloak, and positioned his music stand, several locals quickly took up best sitting spots nearby. They knew to expect his exquisite concerts in the spring. And he did not disappoint. His music was so powerful, several women tried to discreetly wipe away their tears. Money began to fill his violin case. There were murmurs he was someone famous, but no one really knew. He didn’t talk much, just nodded and said thank you, He always took his earnings to the nuns at St. Mark’s Basilica and asked them to donate it for him to cancer research. The nuns knew to not ask questions, but surely his heartfelt music reflected a soul grieving the loss of someone dear.
The Fantasy Faire going on strong. 15 beautiful sim designs. The popular Quest game. Literary festival. Role playing. Parades. Live performances. DJs. Parades… and not to mention, lots and lots of shopping to raise money for a good cause, Relay for Life of American Cancer Association.

Celebrating the publication of The Hobbit, the Fairelands turn to the Hill, an homage to Tolkien’s works and specifically to the Hobbits themselves, for inspiration and celebration.
With readings, unexpected parties and literature challenges based on Tolkien’s books, there was something for every Tolkien fan. I took part in the Litfest writer’s workshop held at the Hill, where we toured the countryside seeking inspiration and then joined the party that was taking place on the green. I later returned to listen to the readers from the Seanchai Library, who presented selections from the Lord of the Rings.
Many folks dressed as their favorite Tolkien character, which meant numerous Legolases…Legolii…? as well as elves, fae, demons and even a fallen god or two, but many appeared just as they always look in SL. We can all relate to those unwilling heroes in the books.
There is a bit of a hero in each of us, at least, we aspire to that ideal. Many heroes this week have donated their time, talents and L$ to Relay For Life. We passed the L$ 3 million mark early Wednesday.

I created today’s avatar in celebration of the Fantasy Faire. Second Life has hundreds, if not thousands, of events but a few things make the Fantasy Faire stand out. First, it’s massive. You’ll find more than 200 designers spanning over a dozen themed sims. Don’t be intimidated though,
