2012 Fantasy Faire: Shifting Sands Sim
One of the perks of blogging the Fantasy Faire (which opens at Noon SLT on Saturday, April 21), is that you get in a bit early and get to look around. I took total advantage, taking shots of all kinds of wonderful things - this is only a fraction of the pictures I took, and I included some shots of stores and store creators as I got them, so go check it out! This is all shots from Shifting Sands, where Ru-Works is located (I covered their releases a couple days ago, and today I picked up a set of wings I didn't have to show before - also available for an RFL Donation!). I added a Majika hair to my avatar - not a petite sized thing but one I resized myself; luckily it shrunk very easily.
The jewelry around my neck is a new petite-sized set from Elemental that's available for only 45$L this weekend at her store - not a Fantasy Faire release but still completely awesome. I have it on good authority that a lot of her jewelry will be getting smaller soon - it's amazing out much is being put out for petites after only a couple of months! I was also amazed by the number of petite offerings at the Fantasy Faire proper, including an awesome ancient Egyptian style set of outfits that I'm still debating on whether I want to grab them. There was also petite sized furniture, like below. Make sure to take the time to look for the little things in the stores; people have really outdone themselves!
One of the things I love about Fantasy Faire is that there is a single path all the way through the sims, so it's easy to keep track of where you've been and where you're going. Most of the stores have decorated in theme with the sim, like you can see in my pictures. It's also really worth it to seek out the central area on each sim and see the gorgeous decorations put there. Each sim has a story, each has amazing displays of art, and if you've ever wanted to try photographing in the wild sims this is an excellent place to start. I had a lot of fun being enormously tiny, talking to store creators, and fluttering around a nearly empty sim - but I can't wait until it's clogged with people and the Linden start flowing in for Cancer Research!
