The Tides, Fantasy Faire 2012

Are you sick and tired yet of Fantasy Faire stuff?  Well, due to last weeks unexpected Second Life outage, the faire has been extended by a whole day!  So brace yourselves for even more pics…

I visited The Tides today which was pretty cool, and hey look, a giant, sexy, almost naked avatar!  I forget her name, but I do remember from her profile that she is a creator and is currently developing giant avatars.  Maybe if I see her again I’ll ask for more info.  She was just kinda hanging out there at the landing point. (shrugs)

The Tides seems to be an interpretation of the “Lost City of Atlantis”, and a stunning one at that…

The staircase leads you downwards to water level.  I didn’t have time to look any further, but maybe there is more to discover below the depths of the sea?

One more day left for Fantasy Faire, so if you have not already gone to check it out, you still have some time.  After tomorrow, it all wraps until next year. 

Shifting Sands, Fantasy Faire 2012

I didn’t get a chance to take as many pictures as I would have liked too while visiting Shifting Sands tonight.  It’s the weekend and there’s a lot of distractions going on around me pulling my attention away from exploring.  

I managed a few pictures from Shifting Sands.  It’s quite a contrast from the lush vegetation I explored yesterday in Nu Orne.  But don’t let that fool you.  There is more to discover here than meets the eye.

The Ruins of Nu Orne, Fantasy Faire 2012

I’m in a mad rush to see all of the regions at Fantasy Faire before it wraps up tomorrow.  I’m only halfway through.  I’d better get moving!

I spent some time in the Ruins of Nu Orne last night and this morning.  It’s a lush and densely populated jungle of strange and exotic vegetation.  When you go visit this sim, cam upwards, as there is a lot to see floating above.

This region was created by Elicio Ember and sponsored by Arcanum.  You can find a full list of the stores located in Nu Orne at the Fantasy Faire 2012 blog, as well as info for the other regions I blogged earlier this week.  

I think Fantasy Faire is my new favourite annual event in Second Life.  It is filled with interesting things to see and explore, like shopping and live music, and it is all to raise funds for Relay for Life.  

And speaking of that, if you haven’t already, go log into My Second Life and hit ‘love’ on SecondLie Scribe’s Relay for Life entry.  For every ‘love’ received in the month of April, SecondLie will donate a penny to Relay for Life.  Last time I checked it was at 592 loves – the goal is 10,000 loves adding up to $100.  With several other Second Life residents matching SecondLies contribution, that adds up to a nice contribution for a really good cause.  And send some love from your alts too.  There’s one more day left!

Now I have to run, I have more exploring to do…

Shadow’s Claw, Fantasy Faire 2012

I’m not a role player in Second Life, but when I see destinations such as this one, it makes me want to get in on some role playing action.  How could you not want to get more immersed in an environment like Shadow’s Claw, with so much attention to detail and atmosphere.  

The region was created by Laufey Markestein and Rosanna Llewellyn, the creators behind TRIDENT

There is so much to see here, that I could have taken hundreds of snapshots.  It was hard choosing just five to share here.  But then, I don’t want to post too many pics so you can go and see Shadow’s Claw for yourself.  It’s trés cool.  

Meandervale, Fantasy Faire 2012

From the edge of Jungle Bungle at Fantasy Faire, you can see the bright, butterfly windmills of Meandervale.  Step a little closer and you can get a glimpse of the tall golden grass resting along a peaceful river that invites you in closer. 

Meandervale was created by Marcus Inkpen and Sharni Azalee, who you may know of from The Looking Glass on Horizon Dream.  It’s a lovely region to stroll through and I’m sure you will enjoy it’s whimsical nature.
 

Between taking snapshots, keeping up with i.m’s and answering my darn phone, I have not had time to fully explore the shops that are situated on Meandervale, or on Jungle Bungle, which I blogged yesterday. The builds themselves are certainly worth the visit if you don’t feel like shopping, but I do hope to go back tonight and buy some things. My L’s are burning a hole in my pixel pocket.


This may be a good time to take my neglected alt out for a spin and do some undercover shopping. 

Stay tuned for more images from Fantasy Faire this week…

No talk, just pictures – Jungle Bungle, Fantasy Faire

I’ve been meaning to blog since last week, but man I’m tired.  I have been busy at work where I am spending my entire day talking my face off.  When I get home in the evening, I just want peace and quiet and to not have to hear my own voice.  Blogging is not talking, but it does require some thinking and my brain cells are too zapped to do any more thinking than I have to.
  
Snapshots, I can handle, so that’s what I have for you today along with some keywords – Fantasy Faire, Jungle Bungle, Mayah Parx, until April 29th.  Go see it.

If you need any more details, Google it.  Or Bing it.  Or whatever search engine you wanna use…
