As some of you are aware, Fantasy Faire began yesterday. I hope you have been able to see the creative builds and explore the extensive amount of vendors. Tonight I am showcasing items from FATEwear and a necklace from ni.ju
When I first saw the previews of these items on Damian Fate’s plurk timeline, I immediately had visions of Lord of the Rings and I knew exactly how I wanted to style these items. I was lucky enough to be given the honor of receiving blogger copies so I was a tad ecstatic. There are three outfits, two for males and one for females. Each outfit is available in three colors. There are two elven styled outfits and one for mages.
Up first is the female elven outfit. The outfit is called “Rochon” and is all mesh. You can either go barefoot or accessorize with a nice pair of boots. I also accessorized this outfit with a necklace from ni.ju since it fit the style perfectly. So when you think of elves featured in Lord of The Rings they all had beautiful white/silvery hair so I found one that I thought gave an asthetic appeal to the outfit.
The second outfit is called “Feredir” which sounds like such a strong male elven character name. You can wear this outfit in two ways: with or without cloak. No shoes are necessary the entire outfit is one piece. I had a few looky loo’s while I was taking this picture and some girl was hitting on me….so I’m guessing my boy shape ain’t half bad lol.
The last outfit is called “Ithron” and this is what I have deemed a typical mage/magician outfit. Usually magicians are quite older and experienced with how the world works. The mage I created is barely entering his elder years so he is still in the process of learning all that is to be known. I’m wearing a skin from Sacred Skins that comes with facial hair.
Just one more until Fantasy Faire 2013 begins, I am sure you are just excited as I am to see what new items will be offered. Today I will be showcasing the new skins from Plastik and some fantasy poses by Musa!.
As always you can always count on Aikea to create the most colorful line in skins especially when it comes to her fantasy skin lines. The Arkasia Skin line features so many options but it is particularly created for the mer-world in SL. I thought I would go a bit different and stray away from the typical mermaid look and transformed my av into a Water Nymph. I figured it would be cute to wear the skin with the scale options. The skin pack contains several tattoo layer options for head tiaras, lipstick, blush, etc… I loved the variety in this pack because you can customize the skin to make it unique to your look.
I teleported to one of my fave spots to take pictures, World’s End Garden. To my surprise they had redone the area since the last time I had visited. Now its a underwater area and has wonderful places to take pictures. The following two pictures I took near a area that had bubbles simulating that I was underwater.
I loved these skins and I really had a hard time deciding on which color to blog. I chose the turqa skin because the color was so rich and vibrant and would look awesome in the outfits by Evie’s Closet. I urge you to check out these skins, the detail is absolutely breathtaking. Also, Musa! is a new to me store and from what I see so far they have a promising future in SL. They have unique fantasy poses and beautiful makeup.

As some of you know, Fantasy Faire is approaching in a couple days (4/20/13, Saturday) and I am happy to showcase to you two of the most adorable avatars by Yabusaka. As many of us know, Yabusaka is the creator behind those super cute petite avatars and has collaborated with many skin designers in SL to bring you unique avatars.
The first avatar is Pookabi Avatar A, which is the most adorable kitty avatar I have seen. Normally I’m not a fan of cats in general but when I put on the avatar I immediately fell in love with the big eyes. To me it was like that moment when Puss in Boots took off his hat and used his big eyes of cuteness. I actually wanted to do a Puss in Boots look but finding male clothing for Yabusaka Baby boy’s seemed quite difficult. There are tons of cute looks for boys, but I had a hard time finding RP looks and gothic looks. So I decided to dress my kitty in outfits by Bare Rose. Both of these outfits are available at the Yabusaka Baby Mall as well as the Pookabi A avatar (retails at 795L).
The two styles I chose are gothic lolita and decora. These are actually two styles I loved to wear when I first started in Second Life. The decora outfit was customly fitted for the Yabusaka Kitty Av so I had to get it. Yabusaka includes a Hud that allows you to customize your avatar and also includes files to customize your fur. I looked on marketplace and saw a few mods so far. I’m sure once more people see these avatars there will be more clothing and mods.
The Second Avatar is Pookabi Avatar B, which will be available at Fantasy Faire. When I opened up this package I was like omg a cute little pug. The avatar comes with a hud that allows you to control eye glimmer and tongue. At the moment there are no mods for the Pookabi B avatar but I can see mods coming up soon. I wanted to dress my pug avatar as a boy but I was going for gothic looks. I ended up with a somewhat casual look and a elegant gothic look.
These outfits I found on marketplace, I did a search for Yabusaka Baby Boy and found these results. LOL and let me tell you, search on marketplace is the suck. Really I typed in boy, why was I getting princess outfits. Anywhoo, these are the looks I found and I think they look adorable on the pug avatar. I used hair from Tukinowaguma, which currently has a grand reopening sale at the moment.
Check out Yabusaka’s creations on the Magnificat sim once Fantasy Faire opens on Saturday 4/20/13. You will fall in love with these avatars like I have and dressing them will be just as fun.

I was selected to blog Aikea’s new items for Fantasy Faire and let me tell you they are amazing. It was so hard to choose just one color armor and skin but I hope this post does honor to her item. I only blogged as a female in the post but there is also male skins available.
The ornate design on the skins are so beautiful, and what I love about them is that the glow on the ebony skin. As usual, any skin by Plastik comes with eyes and matching ears. This skin also includes several tattoo layers to customize your look. I am only wearing a lip color tattoo and the eyes are from the Bloodless Series. In the folder there are ads indicating that there will be more items available to fully customize your look.
The armor is made of mesh and comes with a hud to change/control the gemstones. I left the gemstones as they were because I loved how beautiful the armor was that I had picked at random. The armor I picked is called “Magicka” and it has lovely swirls of blue, purple and pink. In the folder you will get a notecard indicating how you will have to make a few minor adjustments to ensure the armor fits perfectly. The armor comes with a flexi skirt that you can also change the textures via a hud. I chose a leather texture for the flexi skirt/silks because in my head it made my character appear more fierce.
I topped off the look with a prior release from Plastik, the Triz Horns in Cotton Candy. Once I had the outfit and horns the last thing I needed was fantasy hair so I turned to Wasabi Pills. Since I am assuming my character is a drow and most drows have either silver or white hair I opted for white hair. I highly recommend you check out Plastik’s offerings at Fantasy Faire when it opens on April 20th, 2013.
