~ “Coming Up for Air” by Patty Larkin
Another trip to the Mer Market sim at Fantasy Faire 2010, another opportunity to look beautiful. This time I find beauty with one of Goldenstar Sands’ RFL pieces. Offered as a Kimono set for a mermaid as seen above, a strapless (or topless) mermaid as shown below or as a human kimono, this lovely ensemble can take you from sea to shore in a snap. So you can choose modesty with the gorgeous kimono or a more revealing mermaid outfit.
Again, I show Tuli Asturias’ beautiful Sayuri skin, which I have been wearing non stop because I am so entranced by its beauty. It is really the first skin for East Asian women that I have seen that is gorgeous and fits well.
I show also hair and jewelry from two other Fantasy Faire participants. This updo from MissAllDaySunday Lemon is a gorgeous elegant addition to her fantasy line of hair styles. See a whole selection of beautiful pieces on the Avatopia sim. Jewelry is from Tekelili Tantalus, an incredible builder who is featuring creations on the Mer Market sim as well. I was able to change the colors of the shells, seaweed, and even the pearls on these earrings to colors I wanted. And there are MANY colors available in for these—buy one set of jewelry and get never-ending variations available.
Last but not least, let me mention another creator who is selling at Fantasy Faire in the Mer Market sim. I discovered Bibi Questi at last year’s Faire when I was building my underwater area. She (incredibly generously) sells boxes of entire underwater landscapes that benefit RFL. Based on her own trips to the Thailand coral reefs, Bibi started making her own underwater items. “I had had an amazing dive at East of Eden, a one hour long drift dive passing hard coral reefs, coral pillars, fish schools and the giant muray [sic] John with the sun shine falling through clear blue water,” she wrote to me.
Each box she sells for RFL contains.. get this… over 100 color-matched items for transforming your sand with plant-covered coral reefs, swimming fish, fusilades of fish, individual coral reefs, sun rays, and floating jellyfish. All you need is one box and it will transform your entire underwater with much to spare.
This is my own underwater area at my sim, to which I added a few more of her items. The box is CHOCK full. I can’t tell you what a deal it is and how imaginatively she has made her pieces. The fish are so colorful, the reefs so true to life and the jellyfish so remarkable, you can quickly and easily create an underwater scape with an overall color scheme that works. (Much better than buying individual pieces and then having a big hodge podge).
This is what SL is about: sharing our worlds with each other. Bibi has generously and beautifully brought her very amazing experience to share with all of us. Many of the pieces you see here are available in the Midnight Reef Package (blue, pink and seagreen). You can also get the Sunset Coral Reef package (warm orange, red, brown and olive green) or the Vulcano Reef Package (black, gray, blue and white). Get all three to benefit RFL and switch things out as your mood changes.
