Fantasy Faire: Jungle Bungle
Jungle Bungle is another amazing sim in the Fantasy Faire, but it took me three days to take these pictures - so I'm not sure how much more I'll be able to bring about! I love the extravagantly gorgeous colors, though, and the incredible tree in the middle (which I still want to get pictures of, complete with person dangling from it) living in a chocolate lake. The flowers and sparkles around the stores, the roads made of candy all around the sim, it seems like the kind of place I'd like to settle in for a while so I can grow sweetly fat at my leisure.
A hint for those looking for specific stores at the Faire, the 2012 Fantasy Faire Website is hugely useful and has pages with maps and store locations for each of the sims. It's been invaluable to me in terms of being able to find things and find my way around.
The flowers come from a wide variety of sources, from puff-topped Seuss inspired trees, to variations on natural flowers in amazing colors, to slightly creepy wide-mawed plants rooted near an enormous, feathered creature. The variety itself struck me as appealing; everywhere you look it's something different. It does make it very difficult to take pictures, though! Each way you turn, something new and amazing to record.
I'm wearing my awesome outfit from Sakide - the black one - and the amazing red Twi'lek avatar from Style by Kira again for this, and I added a necklace from Balderdash which is also from the Fantasy Faire. I love it's metallic curve and the sparks of color which seemed to reflect the visual cacophony of Jungle Bungle while still looking sweet. I finished the whole look off with amazing mesh boots from SLink, which I think look sexy without being over the top. I particularly like the arch of the heel; it's very high, but it still looks like I might possibly be able to totter around in them offline, too.
I think my favorite thing, though, I saw near the end - and you can get a hint of it in the picture below. Over every pair of stores, there is a pair of dryad people holding lilies. They fade between a couple of colors, paired beautifully, and I was really struck by them. It makes me wish I had a sim of unlimited prims, so I could have little houses roofed by lillies held up by these amazing dryads! That would seem like magic to me, flowers as roofs really appeals to the fae in me.
