Angelic Messenger

The Fantasy Collective opens today at 12PM SLT and this round's theme is celestial. I put together a very angelic look for this photo. The outfit is from May's Soul and includes the bra and underwear armor and the swirling cloth comes in a variety of colors, including sheer versions. I added some jewelry from Pekka and Izzie's along with this new hair from Damselfly, all coming to this new round of TFC. 

Also don't forget that Cirque de Seraphim is still going on, a charity event to benefit the ASPCA. Cheeky Pea put out these Flying Letters Holders, which make great decor items. I'm also using a new pose from oOo Studio from the Tiptoe set, also available at Cirque.

Daughter of a Braggart

A new round of Enchantment is in full swing with the tale of Rumpelstiltskin as inspiration for 20 designers. Most people learned about this tale as a child. In the story, the local miller boasts to the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold, when in fact she cannot. The king locks her in various rooms with straw demanding she spin the straw into gold or else she will be executed. The poor girl doesn't know what to do but each time is visited by an imp who spins the straw into gold in return for jewelry. The third time she is forced to pull off this magical feat, the imp appears again and she promises him her first born in return for his skill. The girl goes onto marry the king and the imp is forgotten until a child is born. He comes to the now queen seeking his payment. She tries to change their bargain and promises him the kingdoms riches but the imp has no interest. He does agree that if the queen can guess his name in three days time, he will give up his claim to the child. At first, the queen is at a loss but she ends up guessing it on the third day (after a messenger sees the imp in the forest singing his name) and the imp disappears in anger.

I'm wearing two items from Dead Dollz, the choker and dress. I really love Dead Dollz texturing work and this dress is a great prize since it comes with a texture change HUD. I'm also holding a storybook by Wimey. I visited the roleplay sim of Goatswood for my picture which has a great old time village atmosphere. Remember, each participating store has a different item out for the event at their mainstore and every item comes with a stamp card. Fill up the stamp card by visiting each participating store and exchange it for a prize at the final location.

Rosemary and Rue

Sometimes I don't really have a whole lot to type and things to say. It's hard to come up with things to say when you're all the time. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I'll let this one speak for itself. Just a last minute roundup of some of the things available at the first anniversary round of The Fantasy Collective, enjoy!

Le Cirque des Rêves

The circus is coming, or rather Cirque de Seraphim is! The people behind Seraphim bring us a new event called Cirque de Seraphim, a fundraiser for the ASPCA. If there is one thing people in SL unite over, it's love of their animals so I'm sure the ASPCA holds a special place in many hearts. My family has a cat named Abby Normal (or just Abby) that was brought to our local shelter after being found abandoned with the rest of her litter on a roadside. Our first cat had recently passed away from feline leukemia (Sunshine was also a shelter cat) and when I was looking at all the fur babies, Abby just stuck out to me. She was tiny but looked right at me like "pick me, pick me, I'm the best!" Of course we did adopt her and she still lives with my parents, running the household as cats will do and keeping our two dogs in line

The title and feel of this post was actually inspired by one of my very favorite books, The Night Circus. The unusual circus that is the center of the book is called Le Cirque des Rêves. It's a magical and ethereal place and you never know where or when this circus will pop up next. If you are an avid book reader like myself it's a must read.

I'm using the Trapeze pose prop, a collaboration from RACK Poses and Consignment. The prop and my outfit from Pink Sugah will be available at the Cirque de Seraphim when it starts on November 6th at 12PM SLT. Side note, I am wearing the updated Belleza Venus mesh body. I used the OMEGA appliers that came with the outfit in order to wear clothing with it. Developer kits are out at the main store so be prepared for people to start creating for the body!

Wet Leaves and Early Nights

Over the weekend, a lot of us gained an hour when daylight savings ended. This means it gets darker an hour earlier and I'm that much more tired. Of course, this is better than in the spring when we lose an hour and I feel the need for caffeine but can't have any. See, either way I'm sleepy and I ramble.

Dust Bunny is part of the newest round of FaMESHed. The Hilltop Cottage is an adorable three room home perfect for late autumn. Make sure you check out her other creations via Flickr. Also pictured is the Cheeky Pea Okugai Supa Set for the Xiasumi School Festival. You can view more of the festival's offerings here.

Always Ignore That Sound In The Basement

You know that bump you just heard, coming from the basement? Ignore it. Don't go down there and investigate. It's not mice or any other critter and it's certainly not a leaky pipe. You really don't want to know what IS down there. What is hiding under the dust and the cobwebs. You will find things you wish you never saw.

TAG Gacha is almost over, ending Halloween night. I really loved this event since it makes you go to main stores and the traffic (and therefore lag) are spread out over 50 different stores. If you haven't heard anything about it or how to play, go here. This post features TAG Gacha items from Consigment, MishMish, Second Spaces, The Secret Store, Floorplan and Vespertine. You'll find that a lot of the stores have made creepy items to go along with the Halloween feel.

The Elven Elite

This entire month has been really chaotic and so much has escaped me but I wanted to fit in a blog post before a certain event ended. Mystic Realms Faire ends tomorrow and I was really impressed with the two full sims of fantasy related EVERYTHING. If you roleplay, like to dress up, need props for pictures or even decorate sims, this is a must visit.

FATEplay released a variety of elven outfits for the guys and gals for this event and I grabbed my close friend Lucie Bluebird to pose in them with me. She did her very own detailed post here. We are also both wearing hair from the event, hers is from Exile and mine is from Truth. The Truth hair is called Neria and comes with optional horns as well, not pictured.

I think we are ready to take on anything the forest (or the grid) sends us between her crossbow and my swords. Quick now, to the credits!
