I havent been this excited in a while..I decided to apply for the first time everrrr..to be a blogger for the Fantasy Faire , I was sooooper pleased when I was accepted, wriggly with excitement to get to the sims and take a peek..and all-around-unbearable for a few weeks ! From a bloggers perspective..its all been so painlessly thought out.. although I dont expect the brill organisers & designers have had much in the way of sleep the last month or so..I was assigned to three designers, on a sim that I was asked to give my prefs for..awesome! My *home* sim is called Nu Orne – Lost City..which if youre into fantasy wear , or not..is worth a visit too. I stood for ages on my first trip…soaking it all in..it really is an incredible build – built by Elicio Ember and sponsored by Arcanum…lots of nooks and crannies to explore..heaps of lush vegetation…huge stone crumbling buildings..very beautiful…very mesmorising…I headed over for one more look around before blogging..and found what HAS to be the most terrific low-lag free outfit ever! Still wearing it now…hair & shaved hairbase by the wonderful Wasabi Pills..and the glorious skin by Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods..male & female versions available of this out..grab it and make your journey into these sims lag free…whilst still looking sensational!

Sooo onto the donation items I have to show you. Dont forget…these are items that the designers are donating the proceeds to finding a cure for cancer..more specifically to the American Cancer Society…over the years the Fantasy Faire has raised so much cash for this …thats people like you and I…all of us joining together..and helping ..warm huggy feeling huh?
My outfit above is by SAKIDE…called “Runes Fairy dress” its a frothy little number with two skirt options..I slipped a pair of old fishnet leggings on underneath (just because I lovvve them)..and then…from Star Kindler Designs, this fantastique Filligree Masquerade mask ! The work in it is amazingly detailed (this item is also appears in the FF auction, in a special colour!) Can you spot my darling brooch? Its by Amaranthus , the Starburst Brooch. In the pack are three sizes S,M,L handy! (The earings are also from this designer) None of these items will break the bank..so snuffle them up while you can !
Something a little more slinkier is this mesh floor skimming gown from SAKIDE..gawd I adore it..The Lotus gown..wraps you up…and stuns the guys (or girls!) ruched around the midriff…simple balconette style bodice…it has five sizes in the box ranging from Large to xxS…so you should be ble to find one thats purrrfect for you! The arm bands come with it..and set of the exposed upper body beautifully..theres also a ring just for added glam.
Last pic of today is one more donation item from SAKIDE..the shepherdess dress…YES, you dooo get the ever-so-cute bow topped staff with it yay! YES the fahhhbulous wellington boots also ! Seriously how adorbs are those boots *squeee*..had to get Kevin my sheep out to add some pop to the pic – “say cheeese Kev” *grin*…Im also wearing some Elf ears with this..they just completed the whole fantasy appeal for me..and gawd there are a lot of choices of these little wonders..made by SouthPaw..the “wood elf ” ears have a menu driven system thats pretty simple dimple to use..and a great choice of charms you can wear with them..you can change the colour of the jewels..the skin tone also !
Ive got to go back later and explore more of the sims..Im really curious about the “Shifting sands” one..looks deelish…have a ball and drop a few pennies if you are able, to the cause. Heres the url’s and further info for you:
