The Pin Critters

Standard

Note: I am no longer pinning for the Fantasy Faire Pinterest pinboards.

As you all know by now Fantasy Faire has it´s own Official Pinterest account and as you can read here on their blog I´m helping out, and tis is the huge surprise i had for you guys, and the reason you saw all these pinning critters on my flickr over the past week.

As you all may know Pinterest as become a huge part of my SL life in the last few months, and when i started using it to cover events for my personal shopping sprees, people started joining in and it sort of took a life of it´s own, I do my best to keep on top of it all, and sorry if i´m sometimes a little late but trust me if there where more hours in the day i would gladly spend them pinning.

Sothis is how Fantasy Fair Pinning will work, there are several boards on their page: One for Official announcements, one for random previews of the creators work before the Faire opens, one for each sim that will in time have available all vendor pics for that sim participants, for easy browsing and location of SLurls.

Like you all know every year a big and pretty amazing list of bloggers helps promote the event,  and their blog posts will also be featured, linking to their blogs and again not only showing the amazing items that will be available but also the imaginative combinations and ways in which they can be used in your daily SL.

Either if you´re a hardcore roleplayer or just fancy a bit of a more dramatic change.

Another board is the Faire fun where you will see not only the more humourous side of backstage pranks, but also parties, events and happenings, something that always made me smile about the Faire is te way those involved really enjoy it, and that just shows, not only on the backstage group but also on a daily basis tru the Faire´s duration.

So i leave you all with the magic creatures tat will be do the pinning of the Faire, it was fun revisiting some of my bought items from last year, and some of my favourite shops for fantasy wear, as well as dusting of my petites for some blogging, see you all soon and let Fantasy ride your thoughts for the next few weeks as we all enjoy what SL is about, Imagination.

Puss in Boots

Standard

As you all know i recently mentioned that Fantasy Faire was coming, and with that in mind i had to do a picture i´ve had in my head for ages.

Belt: Roadrunner’s Creations – Slingshot Holster Belt
Hat: Illusions – Cavalier Hat
Boots: lassitude & ennui – Assassin boots

Pose by Del May

You see the thing with kids is they get obsessed with things, be it characters, TV shows or games, and lately my nephew´s fascination with the Puss in Boots is at it´s height, and even knowing next week he´ll be fascinated with some other character, i had to do this picture for him (he loved it by the way), and it also comes back in full circle to the start of this post, and show how enthusiastic i am about Fantasy Faire and why.

I was always more of a sci-fi person then actual Fantasy, but SL sorta of changed it for me, and i grow more and more fond of Fantasy inworld, not only because of the excellent work i see creators put out but also because i go back to being 4 years old like my nephew, and suddenly the whole world is filled with dragons, monsters, and whatever creature my mind can come up with.

This is why i get so excited about events like Fantasy Faire, they bring a little back of the old SL slogan, Your world, Your imagination.

This post is also part of a sort of self-imposed challenge, at the start of the year i did an application so people could troll me and decide what i should blog, you can find it here and troll me, just keep in mind i am slow, and this is my first time doing.

Blog as a furry!

I’m curious which is your inner animal, and how it is styled.

I´m afraid this is as close as i´ll ever be to a furry, and of course, human or not i´m always fabulous, with the right accessories, and plenty of swag, as for my inner animal, we all know it´s the lolcat, so this gorgeous avatar was just perfect.

That is all for todays folks, don´t forget to check out my Pinterest for updates and previews on events, I´ll see you all soon, with more news and ramblings.

Today I have a lot of new things for you guys, events coming that i´m going to officially blog, even if i had promised myself i would cut down on official blogging, a bloggers challenge, and some more randomness.

So let´s start with the challenge shall we, sometime ago the coolest Pancake in town in her amazing Renoobed started a blogger challenge, as you know me i rarely do those, unless by accident or if i really like it, i really suck at too much writing and musing, but i had to at least give this one a try, it´s called Create a Character Challenge and you can read all about it b clicking the link.

Like i said writing is not one of my strong points at all, so the idea of creating a whole character including background for it is at best a torture, but i did try and i figured the best way to do it was heading of to Genre and see what they had new tis month, not many events cater to roleplayers or are constantly themed like this small monthly event. And when i saw this gorgeous skin from Fallen Gods and i knew i had to use it, next i still had the whole rest of the look to work on, and i reminded myself of tow things i had seen recently first the Hair from Exile i saw in this post White Tea by the lovely Sonya Marmurek, and second these petals i found in this amazing blog post Petal Explosion from Charisma Jonesford.

So i created not a character but a whole new species a mix of roses and snake who´s nature is unknown and who´s probably the reason roses have thorns, tiny as little sharp snake´s teeth, that ill surprise you with a small bite. ´m afraid this is as good as it gets as far as character backstories as i can go, i did get a new exciting look from this challenge, and went way out of my comfort zone when it comes to showing of skin, so it was certainly a time well spent and most of all my preparation for those upcoming events.

And here is the events part i promised you guys this was also my mind being constantly thinking of two events that are probably my favourites every year.

Fantasy Faire – That starts on April the 20th lasting until April the 28th, Last year i had so much fun doing this event it was crazy, I had just started blogging officially events and Fantasy Faire was one of the very first, I also had the amazing pleasure of working closely with Khyle Sion from Refined Wild and is then project for the Faire,  Paper boats in a paper sea I also see Khyle is decorating one of the sims this year and i can´t wait to see the result. By the way the Faire is still looking for bloggers and you can find the application here.

The World Goth Fair – Again another one of my favourite events happening from the 15th of May until the 30th and run by one of the best event organizers i´ve seen so far, Axi Kurmin, this year is it´s second edition and oh my have we grown so much since last year. And we can only get better and better, the amount of new shops joining the event is amazing and so is their quality, so i can´t wait for this laid back event, where i go goth for a few weeks.

And this is it my ramblings for today, just be prepared for some crazy looks around these parts as i prepare myself o dress up and go whimsical and dark. See you all laters maybe with a Pinterest update.

Skin Fair 2013 previews and oh so much more

Standard

As you all know Skin Fair 2013 opens today well tomorrow to be more certain i think the opening time will be either nidnite or 1 a.m. daylight savings confuse us all don´t they, and as usual i´ve brought you all previews from the vendors that you can see here on my Skin Fair pinboard, at the moment only around 20 creators are not setup yet.

Wearing:
Shape: mine
Skin: +Nuuna+ Juuli (Skin Fair 2013)

Pose by Del May

But i am setup and ready, to wrap up my pinning (for now expect updates on the missing stores as soon as it´s possible) and start enjoying my purchases, one of them being this gorgeous new fair release by Nuuna (btw also check her amazing Crayon Skins), that comes with a wide variety of lipstick options and makeups for an amazing price.

Take your time to visit all shops that spam over 2 sims and by my list of pinning are about at least 87,oh never mind my coat that was made by a friend, Nicole Twigvald from over at smileyorc, it has bling, it has moving textures and plenty of glitter. It felt like xmas when she sent it to me, and i felt like a xmas tree when i put it on.

So get ready fro Skin Fair people as i get ready for tomorrow´s pinning which will be chaotic and crazy like all Fridays, because it´s the opening day for The Boutique, (check the previews i already pinned for some crazy awesomeness) and also we have coming up as usual Fifty Linden Friday, and new rounds of   L’accessoires and The Gallery Gift Shop, and probably a new event pinboard. So i bet you all can barely wait, and while your waiting check out my Easter themed pinboard called Easter Eggs for all the Easter goodies and is already filling up with the The Nest Easter Egg Hunt.

In the meanwhile remember you can join the group for Fashion Fair 2013 inworld or either the Skin Addiction group that will be probably sending out demos of the new releases for the event. See you all tomorrow i still need to make dinner and do more pinning.

All i want for Gothmas…

Standard

It´s you, to come and join me at today´s opening of Gothmas by Gaslight.

You might remember Gothmas by Gaslight from last year but in the hunt format, this year it´s back but with something we all love a lot more, which is gatchas, i enjoy Christmas a lot but mostly in RL to be honest in SL around this time of year i tend to stay away from the holiday items, and that´s why i adore Gothmas by Gaslight, and the darker twist on the traditional things we get to see all over around this season.

I also like Gothy stuff, although i have no idea what i´m doing with it most of the time really, do enjoy it even tho i´m certainly sure, i don´t have a goth bone in me, as i see it a wonderful way to experiment with looks and get away from my comfort zone completely, and i´m lucky that my good friend Bronxie who is the most GAF (goth as f***) person i know let´s me tag along all goth events she´s involved without calling me out on my lack of gothyness .

So I hope you´re all ready for an amazing event that starts today and lasts until the 15th of January, and a cute darker twist on this holiday season. Just wait till you see my Gothmas tree guys.

Shock indeed

Standard

What more of  a culture shock then one coming from space? Fast, and powerful she comes, a visitor from the stars ready to hit. All of this is my silly theme and excuse to take pictures, in this quirky, fabulous intergalactic accessory, the asteroid belt by Weather! or not? made specially for Culture Shock that is still going strong, and will remain going strong until the 26th supporting this year Médecins Sans Frontières.

So here i am for a good cause wearing bling, well not properly bling, and it can also be turned of, flying from space to make a big crash.

Sorry for the short blog but i´m still not feeling 100% well this week.

Mesh Around, and round and round.

Standard

Mesh Around is another event starting soon, most specifically on the 1st of June until the 15th and this one is a gridwide hunt involving some of the best, new and not so new shops on the grid working with like the name says, mesh.

I´ll admit i´m already a full-time mesh snob, and you won´t see me wearing many system layers, so i can´t wait for this hunt to start.

This is also the first event organized by The Ego Co., the first of many i am sure, I joined this new event group as a blogger recently and i am surprised at the organization already, and looking forward for June. In the meanwhile even with an already extensive and high quality list of merchants the applications for the hunt where extended for an extra week, so merchants can still apply here.

And while i wait, i´m still taking pics and these are from one of my favorite shops, and one of those in the Mesh Around hunt, Geometry I am wearing in this case one of their donation items for the The Ashraya Project. And i also did a trip to Yummy for some shopping, so here it is for now, while we wait for the time to go hunting.
