2012 Fantasy Faire: The Tides
One of my decisions when I started blogging was that for "my" assigned storees I would try to do a second photoshoot on the sim their store was one; Skinthesis is located on The Tides, which is a gorgeous sim set on platforms above the ocean, styled in a very Greco-Roman manner (all pillars and statues and marble). These pictures only hint at the total majesty, complete with long falls of water under the buildings and fascinating, complicated figures hiding underneath the platforms. There was also an amazing Giant Avatar which hung out within the platforms like a Titan come to Earth - I'm a petite in these pictures, but she dwarfs even a normal sized avatar. I didn't get as close to some of the high up delicacy as I wanted - only seeing it toward the end - but if I have time I may swing back to take some more pictures; everything is so complicated and beautiful, I wish it could stay.
I'm having a lot of fun in my petite avatar; this is another RFL release, this time with a purple Luna mask instead of the rainbow. Sadly I didn't get the matching wings until after these pictures were taken, but you'll see some of Skinthesis' Luna wings soon, I promise! The hair is another from Wasabi Pills from the Petite collection; I also got my paws on a new script for resizing which corrects for narrow bits of hair which might keep you from fitting the hair to a petite, here on the marketplace for only 5$L. For those of us increasingly obsessed with our petites, this adds a valuable resource for tweaking down hair and clothing to match. My necklace is from Elemental again - part of her petite jewelry line - and the dress is an RFL donation item from Solange which I completely fell in love with, which comes with the arm jewelry (I picked up a cyan dress, too, but I likely won't have time to show it before the end of the faire). One advantage to petite clothing is that everything fits out of the box; one disadvantage is that there is no modifications in the shape for us to individualize our forms. My Deoridhe usually has wider hips, matching larger belly and butt, and a larger bust; I wish I could replicate it in a petite, but right now that isn't possible.
Unfortunately, the Faire is only open for a very limited time - so hurry and check out the gorgeous views before they all disappear back into the inventories of their creators. Pictures don't do the full majesty justice, but you can find a lot more in the Fantasy Faire Flickr group, where I also submit all of my pictures.
