Allow me to introduce you to the most fungi lady to grace the pages of this blog, Lady Amanita. She is a little put out that she wasn’t invited to the big event today, but she was quite pleased with her place among the flowers. At least she was until the pollen started to bother her. Fungal spores are no issue, but when the flowers start shooting pollen all over she just can not take it. They did provide cover to watch the festivities, so it wasn’t a total loss.
After the festivities she took a little promenade in the gardens to soak up the warm rays of sunshine. That is the story she told me, but I think it’s more likely she was trying to show off her fabulous look. Only ladies wear pearls according to Lady A, but I am not sold on that. I have been known to wear pearls and I am no lady.
During my first week of the faire I had some fun adventures and even made up my own little game. I call it “Creators in the Wilds”, which basically means that I tried to photo any faire creators while they were out and about on the fairelands. It’s not as easy as it sounds because all games have rules. The rules for my game are…
No Photos without permission
No photos taken at events (this would make it too easy)
Maybe next year I will change it up and do selfies with creators, though that may be more intrusive.
As a special bonus I got a faire minister too!
I also hit up a few events during the week as well, you know when my non-digital life would allow it. I attended a lecture or lesson, whatever you want to call it about the mythos of centaurs. It was really enlightening, and I learned that Chiron was the centaur equivalent of Yoda (at least that is how my brain linked them).
There was some dancing on the Fairechylde, which I enticed a friend to join me at. I also got called out for my tendency to like even numbers in the RFL kiosks. I can’t help it, it’s one of the quirks that make me well me.
I went to see some shows too, there was a particle dance that had audience participation.
Another dance to classical music
And finally the Jail and Bail of Alia with the bus ride of doom afterwards. If you have even been on a post bail bus ride you understand.
And fret not, the quest will have its own post…as soon as I finish it.
Yesterday I was a Sun Goddess and today we are channeling the night sky. The tattoo may be the moon goddess one, but I couldn’t choose between the moon and the stars so I went with both. Maybe she is in charge of the new stars in the sky that create the constellations. One of which I learned about during a lecture, talk, history lesson, whatever you want to call it during the faire. I will talk about that in my weekly round up post probably tomorrow. For today how about a closer look at that tattoo ( I went halo-less this time)
I think if I had to choose between releasing the sun and hanging the stars I would choose the stars. The sun doesn’t really change all that often but stars, those are more every changing and in constant flux so your job would never be the same. Granted I am not well versed in all the celestial bodies and could be speaking out my bum. Either way I would make a fabulous star sticker outer and even more so if I looked like this!
It’s funny that I am channeling my inner sun goddess given my love/hate relationship with it. In the non-digital world I am so pale I glow in the sunlight and burn easier than something that burns easily. That being said I could not resist the tattoo and halo combo.
Who wouldn’t want to look this glowing and fabulous? It paired really nicely with an outfit I already had in my inventory so that was a bonus for me. It means that I have all the more to be able to drop into the RFL kiosks all over the fairelands. Since it would be weird to have the day without the night, there will be a post featuring the moon following this one, I mean not right away, but maybe later today…after the sun sets!
I am going to start by showcasing the most talked about cow in all the fairelands and then moooove onto my adventures. Sorry I couldn’t pass up the chance at that pun. Now when I arrived at Fairelands Junction I followed the path to see the Worldlings since they are one of my favorite things. I have plans for a special photo with those later so stay tuned. I think I wandered counter clockwise as my faire alter ego of the day Emogene the Emo Elf.
As I was wandering I came across a bunch of dragon hatchlings, but I wasn’t about to stick around to see if the mama or papa would be returning soon. I didn’t want to be dragon chow before the faire really got going!
I continued on my way, and as I wandered I decided to play a special game. It was called “How many times can I mess up?”, and I decided to count the number of times I got lost, crashed, or just fell through things. For the record I was there for blogger day which is before the faire opens to everyone so there were growing pains that caused falling into spaces (only 4 times!) Now some fairelands are not for the faint of heart, or being high as a kite. I had surgery on my hip a little over a week ago so pain meds are my friends.
You can see how something like this would mess with your head. It still freaks me out a little if I am being honest. Now when I was at the fair there were a few sims that were still dressing and asked for no photos and I had to respect their wishes so there are some sims that will be a complete surprise. Then again so will these since I didn’t tell you which ones they are. Think of it as a special little scavenger hunt to keep you entertained as you shop and wait for the quest to begin!
There is one sim that has a genie and man that one was giving me issues. I am pretty sure the genie cursed my computer because every time I tried to get a photo of him my computer would glitch and crash (total number of cursed crashes 5). So I cheated and used a different computer and got a picture and then everything was fine. For the record it was an issue with my computer and not the sim.
You didn’t think I would not post a picture of the genie did you? After completing my battle with the genie I adventured onwards some more. I only got lost a three times which I think is a record low for me. Yes there are paths you can follow so you doing get lost, but I am likely to get distracted by anything that catches my eye and I wander off the path. A big bad wolf would have a field day with me, luckily I didn’t run into any of them…yet.
I don’t know what this fairy was going through, but man I was starting to feel her. As I stated earlier I had hip surgery recently so getting tuckered out is easy to do. Next week I will have a full round up of all the things I have done during the first week of the faire so stay tuned for that. Oh and let me know if you spot any of the places from my photos!
I feel like I need a little hearld to bring forth the news that the Fantasy Faire is mere days away from opening. While I don’t have a herald (do places still have them?), I do have flamingos. Panic Flamingos to be exact and I have been following them waiting for the portals to the fairelands to open.
The two large flamingos are Panic Flamingos for those participating in the faire in some way. The little fellas are just following their elders and I am flying along right behind them all trying to get through the portal. It won’t be open till the 20th though so I guess we have to wait. On the plus side if you want to mark your calendar with Faireland classes, shows, parties and other shenanigans you can head on over to the Official Page!
What would a post be without a good look…down my dress it seems. Ignore that and just take in the magical floral fairy happily longing to return to the fairegrounds. I wonder how many magical personalities I will cycle through this year!
I had planned to post this on Easter, because you know bunnies, but sometimes life has other plans. And then I was gonna do it yesterday, but it turned out to be the Monday-est of Mondays so here we are. Now you may think there are only two fluffy tailed friends in the picture, but there is a secret hidden bunny. Can you guess where it is?
Did you guess there was a bunny in my hood? Well aren’t you just a smart cookie! Either that or you saw it for sale and knew it by sight. Dang I totally just wrote that like I was a character in some kids program. Oh well there are worse things…right? Right?!!?!?
I wasn’t kidding when I said I was bringing the 80’s back. When I saw these cheer outfits from Dead Doll I automatically knew I needed a Toni Basil moment. For those of you who are youngun’s Toni Basil had a hit with the song “Mickey” which featured cheerleaders. While these pieces were released a bit ago it sometimes takes time to get three people together for pictures.
I’m bringing 80’s back, them other girls don’t know how to dress. I won’t continue to butcher that song I promise. But seriously if someone gives you lace gloves and you don’t get some material girl vibes are you even living? (if you are to young for that reference ask an older adult in your life) Before I end up making myself and other feel old I am going o move onto the credits.
Practicing archery skills is not a favorite way to spend a sunny day for our friend here. She prefers to sip her tea and read rather than shoot at targets. I am sure her instructor will be looking for her shortly so I hope she can get her tea finished in time!
