Helena Stringer - Fantasy Faire 2016 - Moonlit - 1
The moon so bright and full, calls to the creatures of the night. There are places to be, places to explore. The vale has lifted and new worlds have arisen from the murky depth. All creatures, big and small, hear the call, and are compelled by it. Come, it says. Explore, it says.

Fantasy Faire is now open, and you have until May 1st to explore the wonder of all 14 sims.

I was lucky to be chosen to be an official writer for the Fantasy Faire Website, so you will see me posting there, as well as Free*Style and It’s only Fashion.

I have been a long time designer friend of Alpha Auer, the owner of alpha.tribe, and she contacts me yesterday, out of the blue. Low and behold, she is in Fantasy Faire, with new and wonderful avatar art for everyone to wear. We had a good chat, and she was ever so kind to pass me a few of her items.

I am wearing one of her more tame outfits, called Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Like all of the wearable art in the store, this outfit is unisex, includes skins, hair, garments, accessories and footwear. I was called to this outfit the most out of the lot, and felt very vampiric once adorned.

I decided to soup up the skin a little with the new eyeshadows from Musa, which were also released at Fantasy Faire. You can view the options HERE. The set includes 8 shadows, for default avatars and Omega compatible mesh heads. There is also a charity pack of 3 shadows, with all proceeds going to Relay for Life.

Skinful Sundays – Elistrae Skins by Plastik

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Skinful Sundays - Plastik 1

I wear so many alternatively toned skins, and get constantly asked what I am wearing, either by people bumping into me or visitors at the store. I thought it might be nice to start featuring some of the places I collect my crayola coloured skins from, as they aren’t always the easiest things to find.

First up are the new Elistrae Skins from Plastik. These were newly released at Skin Fair last month, I just didn’t manage to roll out this feature while the event was open. You can now find these at the Plastik Mainstore.

Plastik has a buttload of appliers, like there are so many. If you end up not being able to use these skins with your mesh parts, I would be super surprised. The one thing that draws me in is that they still support Genesis Labs, which many designers have stopped creating for. While I do have a Logo mesh head now, I still am drawn to the Genesis Lab heads the most, so any designer that still makes appliers for them is bound to stay in my top 10 for skin makers.

Another great feature of the skins is that you can have glitter on your butt. How many skins in recent years have you seen with glitter on the butt?

The Skins make me think of a cross between Fantasy Space Alien and Drow. There are many tones to choose from, which makes it super hard to pick just ones. Zesstra is probably my favorite, if I was forced to choose just one.

I am not often a petite anymore. There was a time when I was tiny, more than half my week. I made a lot of content for these wee creatures, and still continue to do so, to a point.

Fantasy Faire always has a plethora of items for the petites, and this year is no different. I dug in, dusted off my little wings, and created an outfit for you all to enjoy.

Fallen Gods created a special skin for Relay for Life, every Fantasy Faire, this year bringing forth a creature from the deep. The watery designs on the face are rather beautiful, reminding me more of dew on a spiderweb, but keeping to that essence of those that live under the waves. Meet

Fantasy Faire 2015 – Glacial Fae Guardian

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Aurora

In a small cave of the Glacier, underneath the machines and an Northern Lights, a Young Fae seeks knowledge of Unweaver. While it is hard for his type of magic to work here, in this place of little nature, he taps into what he trails he can.

He was on his was to The Gathering, a right of passage for young Fae, when they want to find their place in mound. Now, crossing a mound is normally an instant thing, but during his transition, he got ripped out and dropped into this wintery world. He always had the knowledge that there were different plains, where different creatures lived, such as the Human realms. He never expected to arrive at one while still untried.

For 1000 moons he has been stuck in this frozen place, his own magic taking on elements of the surrounds, infusing it within him, so he could better adapt. With so little Flora to help him regenerate the little magic of his own, he started to tap into the Fauna of the area. This has lead to him acquiring different senses, and after a few years, he now has the ability to speak in animal tongues.

While this all has helped with his survival, it does not help with his situation. He is too young and weak, to bridge into his own world. the closest thing to a mound he has is a little cave of frostshrooms.

What he has gathered from above, in the city below the aurora, is that a very powerful being cast this plain into an ice age. Why, no one seems to know.

Two separate factions have evolved, lead here by the power of the Aurora, hoping that they can tap into it’s natural source, and find the mystery to unraveling this glacial curse.

There are also talks of Heros, from other dimensions, being a key part to unlocking these lands of it’s heavy binds. Due to this, he has stayed hidden, not wanting to be brought into the midst of the humans. One faction is more akin to his own people, dipping into the shimmering steams of natural magic, but the other, they are more experimentative. Most human cannot see the Fae, unless they want to be seen anyway, but he has stayed cautious, just in case.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Dayal Navarathna - Glacial Warrior - 2

His one small piece of hope is the hearthstone he keeps in a pendant, woven out of the finest mythril by his mother, which was spellforged by his father. When he starts to lose hope, it throbs and glows, warming both him and his soul. The magic of his home will never cease to find him, and one day, he knows he will be reunited. Until then, he will be a silent guardian, keeping the glacier safe, so that the humans can have their time to find answers, no matter how long it takes.
