The Fantasy Faire opened less than a week ago, and has already raised over L$4.4 million for Relay For Life, making it the highest-fundraising event of this RFL season so far! I am proud to be an official blogger for the event, and as part of being that, they have asked us to complete a series of blog challenges or memes that tie into the event. Today, I’m doing the Faire Folk challenge, which is to create a character from the Fairelands using mainly items from this year’s Fantasy Faire, and photograph the character in their home sim.
I chose to create a merman and photograph him in the Fairelands Junction sim. Saiyge Lotus of Balderdash has done an incredible job of creating Fairelands Junction and turning it into an underwater masterpiece this year. The main component of the avatar – the tail, pauldrons, and wrist guards – are actually not from this year’s Fantasy Faire. They are part of a limited edition set that was created by Mer Betta and auctioned off at the 2011 Fantasy Faire. A few days ago, I was shocked to receive appliers from Opal Lei, the Mer Betta creator, to use the tail with the Mesh Project body! Their other tails at the moment do not have that – it’s a special thing for this limited edition set – but I hope to see more of their tails have that option in the future.
This year’s Faire is well-represented in the avatar, though. Even~Tide created the body scales, Tir Na Nog created the crown, The Stringer Mausoleum created the horns and eyebrows, Wasabi Pills created the hair, and Empyrean Forge created both necklaces. Even better, with the exception of one of the necklaces, all of these items are Relay For Life donation items, meaning that 100% of their purchase price is donated to the fight against cancer.
Fantasy Faire ends next Sunday, May 3rd. Make sure to stop by before the Fairelands are gone for another year!
