Fantasy Faire: Egregore
Egregore is a world of riotous colors which becomes almost completely overwhelming in daylight, and only slightly less riotous under the glow of the moon. This is a child's world, complete with enormous doll houses open in the side or tilted slightly so you can sneak inside to pick up the many delights of the Fantasy Faire. Jelly beans form the paths, pointing the way between stores and through the hiding spots and dance grounds of dolls and toy ponies. The centerpiece is a giant mannequin setting up her own enormous dollhouse, her feet the size of two Faireland citizens put together.
Elsewhere are small tableaus of toys lit by shimmering balls of light that swirl and change color. One is the circle of unicorns which has shown up in several Epic Toy Factory builds; in the center is a lovely altar of sorts around a family of unicorns, and there are even a few fairies going for a ride! Another circle of toys is a train track with a Halloween vibe, complete with pumpkin carriages which would horrify any self-respecting Cinderella. There's even a creepy clown, in a nod to Anansi, waiting to give you a ride.
I'm dressed up in things you can find in Egregore, and I really enjoy the contrast between ultra-sleek woman of the evening, and the childhood cacophony she exists within. The dress is from Moonlitecat Creations and comes with the gown, necklace, and shoes. There are a ton of options, including Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink along with fitmesh for the standard body. In deference to arachnophobes, the dress comes with spidery and non-spidery options. As an added bonus, my eyes are as full of webs as my Deviance wings - a good touch for arachnophiles everywhere! It's an easy fit and the fabric has lovely shine and a ton of subtle hues. There's a chain detail for the low back, and the slit on one side will show everything but your assets.
Speaking of assets, my skin is a limited edition based on the sim itself - Egregore - from Nephilim. It's an awesome mix of purples with hints of pink and blue, which catches the light in fantastic ways. It has almost every applier in the bunch for heads (Akeruka, Altamura, Catwa, Eve, LAQ, LeLutka), full bodies (Altamura, Belleza, Eve, Slink, Maitreya, Omega, SN Venus, and Tonic) as well as textures for the legacy body. It was only missing an applier for my .:Soul:. ears, so I had to tint as closely as I could! The body comes with and without brows, and with regular, cleavage, and corset texturing. There are several other skins available, but this was my favorite by far; I love eerie hues.
The final touch is my magatama earrings from Void Heart. It's in the purple which marks the faire itself, and is a lot of fun to show off with a swirling hairstyle. This and a whole lot more are available for those who stray back into their childhood and end up exploring Egregore.
