Lotus Valley Dreams ~ a Fantasy Faire sim

Lotus Valley Dream is an oriental fantasy of a sim designed and sponsored by Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee of The Looking Glass


SLURL and shop list is at this link

Like Magnificat this sim is a horse shoe shape going around water, however instead of ships sailing into the sunset, Lotus features a giant glowing lotus blossom being entwined by an oriental red dragon. A simply breath taking sight.


Docks with boats, little nooks with fountains, statues, and duckies are scattered about the sim. It makes for a pleasantly calming experience.


Also on the sim is the Steelhead Associated Adventures club run by the Quest for the golden Prim. Which is a comic shot mostly in Steelhead's sims. My teahouse made an a background appearance once! I took a few photos of it and they can be seen starting here

Kouse’s Sanctum and NAMINOKE in Lotus Valley Dreams

Kouse is one of my favorite designers in Secondlife, so of COURSE I had to snap up one of her relay gowns. I chose the one named Ophelia because I liked the lil hat and the sleeves, but she has three lovely gowns to chose from. I just only picked up the one.

For the record Kouse also made my glasses you see me in. They are named for me and found under her jewelry brand Krystal. I love them so much.

You can get to her main store by following this slurl and her store on the sim is at the border of Lotus Valley and Lumenaria




For my other outfit, I chose an oriental one to match the theme of the sim. I selected a new to me designer named NAMINOKE and her cute mini kimono she was offering called Lotus Dawn. I love how it shifts and moves.


You can get to her main store at this SLURL and her store on Lotus Dream is near the boarder of Lotus Dream and Ravenshard.





Also on the sim is another of my favorite designers Caverna Obscura  . I owned one of her relay offerings already and in fact showed it off at this post here earlier in the month. I adore Elvina work enough to want to give her a shot out even if I am not showing OFF her work in this post. Her store is near kouse's on the sim


Again you can get to Lotus Valley Dreams via the SLURL there. It has a map but I told you how to get to these stores!

Ravenshard ~ a Fantasy Faire Sim

Ravenshard is fantasy whimsical world from the mind of Mayah Parx, of Epic Toy Factory who both created it and sponsered it

And like last year, I want to eat parts of her Fantasy Faire Sim she created.

SLURL and shop list at this link

Mayah created a world based on a whole lotta Dr Seuss, * I WANT A TRUFFULA TREE!! SO BAD, but I can't figure out if they are for sale someplace or not*, but also some Burton and Carol. It's a fabulous mishmash of fantasy that just WORKS. Pools of chocolate, truffula trees, wacky buildings, some with FEET, and just all around fabulousness. If you look you may even spot the Lorax!

Even the windlight setting is wacky fantastic, with multicolored clouds scrolling across the sky at full speed!

If you can figure out why I took this shot then you know me very well!

Simply Fae on Ravenshard

And here we have the last of my shops! The delightfully whimsical Simply Fae by Boaz Sands

Her Main store is located here and her Fantasy faire outlet is located to the right of the landing point near the boarder of Ravenshard and Fairelands Junctions sim

I have a few of Boaz's outfits already, so I was very pleased to be assigned her to blog. She offers outfits for both full size Fae like me and the petite faes.


The first of her Relay offerings I will be showing off is a short sassy dress called Tatiana I . It's simple but I love it. The embroidery on the skirt is my favorite part.





Her next outfit I will be showing off is actually one I picked up from her Relay kiosk last year, but it was so fantastic she had it again this year! I love the vine and floral work on it, and its one of those that swishes extreamly well. Good for dancing!





You can get to her shop on Eavenshard via this Slurl
