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.

Monday Eyeful – Venus Eyes by S0NG

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - S0NG

This week on Monday Eyeful, I visited the Hantai Fair, because come on, TENTACLES!!! There are so many, I was in my glory. Also, there happens to be a large amount of eyes up for grabs at the fair, which always makes me come running. S0NG is there with new eyes, and they still have me guessing as to why they are named what they are. They sort of look like they have snow, not sparkles, but snow, falling inside them. Like a little storm trapped in your eye. I always have such a hard time choosing what colour I want(and often go back for more month later, haha).

These are called called Venus, and have a good mix of colours to choose from.

They are priced L$50 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Stix has some Limited Editions in their store right now. Hera is the base skinline, in a wonderful goth makeup. There are 4 tones to choose from. I am wearing the Drow tone, but my second favorite is the Snow. Stix always comes with all the appliers possible, I would really be surprised if you can’t make it work for your own mesh collection.

Grab your favorite while you can, they are only L$99 per tone!

Monday Eyeful – Drowned Eyed by Clemmm

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Clemmm

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I wanted something a little spooky, since I looked so pretty like, and we can’t have that now can we!

I do collect many eyes, it is my one true downfall in second life, haha. Some people have hair, some people have shoes, many have gacha items as the crutch now. Mine is, and probably always will be, eyes. Clemmm makes some fairly unique ones, and if you don’t normally go for something Macabre/Otherwordly/Horrorish, well it is the month to try something out. The prices wont kill you either, they are affordable, which allows you more options to play with.

These are called Drowned, and are very eerie.

They are priced L$73 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

I bedazzled myself a little today, with items from a little known fantasy store called Noble Creations. The majority of their items are Home&Garden related, but they do make some avatar accessories. The feel of the store is Fantasy/Roleplay. The details to each piece are meticulously created, and the textures are so full of depth. All the creations here are 100% original, and worth a look.

Carry the burden of my Sins

MY LAPTOP IS BACK!

So I have somethings a bit different for you today.

I lost a lot of my windlights, as they typically are in the program files of SL. When I had my data transferred, before the laptop was sent off to the other side of the country, they only saved my user folder.

So I was trying to go thru some of the old tutorials I did to create those I didn’t have, when I came across one I really wanted to do for a while. That was making a mirror-like water effect.

I managed to do it, after some fandangling.

I chose to use these heels from Deadpool to showcase my new windlight. I’m lucky enough to have been long time friends with the creator. It is always interesting to see what friends are up to inworld, and play with their creations. Cheers to those who have put up with me all these years, haha.

The heels are black, with silver accents, and the wonderful skeleton heel. They are 100% original mesh, and come in a gold version as well. The skin I am wearing is grey, and then I threw in some black nails. It probably would have been simpler to just make the shots black and white in photoshop, but I enjoyed making these naturally in sl.
