A New Store and it’s no bore – She designs for the land of Gor!

Well, OK, probably not one of my better efforts, but still:

I get to blog a new store!!!

I met Sadie Dubratt, owner and designer of Kitty Creations, when I blogged for the Unmasking A Cure’s Medieval Faire…she had AMAZING furniture and clothing, that I love-love-LOVED!  So when she asked me to blog for her store…well, that was a no-duh decision!

And when I saw the clothing she’d made…what can I say, I felt like the luckiest avi in SL!

First off is a sexy sexy omg-it’s-so-hot-it’s-radioactive SEXY outfit called Locked In MY Arms.  It comes in black & gold, teal, and red.  I could see this as a swimsuit outside of Gor or display garment for a Gorean slave girl – versatile and gorgeous!  It even comes with two antique bracelets, one on each arm.  Who wouldn’t want to stroll around, catching eyes everywhere, with this sexy outfit?

Not only does Sadie design for Gor, she also does a mean medieval look too!  A great example of this is the next outfit, Medieval Lore.  In black, gold, rose, royal blue, teal, violet and wine, this outfit is a perfect example of understated elegance and a simplicity that is amazingly hard to capture.  Sadie has, though, and has done it perfectly!  Two detachable cuffs, a multi-strand necklace and head jewel, and embroidered brocade corset turn the velvety satin gown they’re with into a regally rich and gorgeous robe fit for royalty!

If you love RP, Sadie’s Kitty Creations is the place to go!  And where do you go…?

Hair Fair Contest Ends On The First!

So you need to hurry up and enter!  The prizes are awesome – but don’t just take my word for it, go to the website:

https://hairfair.wordpress.com/2016/06/10/hair-fair-photo-contest-2016/

The hair can be free hair, gifts, whatever, as long as it comes from one of the listed merchants.  YAY!!!!!  You can enter and win with the hair you’ve got!

HURRY!!!!!

I’m Back To Hair…With Alli&Ali’s Bobby and Kira!

You know what I love best about Alli&Ali hair?

Men’s hair, women’s hair – it all looks good on me!

And today, I’ve got two hairs, one male, one female, and they both rock on my head!  I wore them at the SL 13th Birthday bash…sadly, I couldn’t get very far, lag just killed me.  But hey, I got far enough!

First, let’s look at Bobby, a curly-curly style with highlights – like this hair, which is in Black Coffee.  It looks so cute on me; it reminds me of Stockard Channing’s Rizzo in Grease – gorgeous curls all over her hair!  Bobby is in all the standard colors as well.

I was wearing Alaskametro’s Ingrid tunic dress in Pebble; it’s a gorgeous ombre crinkle crepe dress with embroidery around the neck and open sleeves along the sides.  I love it so much I’m thinking of buying other colors!  I’m afraid I depended on the dance and sit poses at the birthday celebration, but otherwise I used the poses in my Vista Essence Woman AO.

And of course, now Kira!  This is a fun mesh/flexi style that really goes with you – see me dancing and you’ll notice it right away.  There’s also a braid attachment with its own hud that provides color change at will.  Kira comes in the standard colors as usual plus a few more options; I’m wearing Kira in Copper Brown.

(I think this would ROCK as a fantasy hair too!  Just sayin’…!)

Anyhow, I would not wait to run run RUN to Alli&Ali’s store and shop till you drop!  Tons of fun styles and these two new hot additions – how can you resist???

Please make sure you help by going medieval on cancer one last day!

Meet Me At The Faire…the UAC Medieval Faire, that is!

I thought today I would show you all some of the amazing sights and gorgeous scenery you can see at the Unmasking A Cure Medieval Faire!  It really is so lush and green; you would swear you were back in the days of jousts, magic, and merriment!

I’ll try to walk you visually through the parts of the faire, as if you were walking around at the faire.  First is, of course, the entrance, information board, and maps of the faire areas:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Doesn’t that entrance make you feel like you’re walking into a castle courtyard?  And there is SO much information in the info area next to the village square…which of course makes sense, lol!

Since we’re right next to the village square, let’s go there next:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The merriment and revelry takes place here, as you can see from the pictures of the set DJ G-Winz did there recently.  Dancing and music can be had around the central fountain and each corner of the square has something, such as the lake and maypole corners that can be used to either get your heart rate up…or calm it down!  The other two corners contain the shield vote (you can see who won!), the silent auctions bid boards (still going strong), pictures of the organizers of the faire and logos of the sponsors and those who merit special mention.  There’s even a slide show of special moments from the Faire!

And last, but not least, the perimeter of the Faire:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

…where you will find the merchants I and other bloggers have featured, meadows where you can rest and watch the sheep graze and butterflies flitter, jousting, archery and melee areas to watch and cheer on your favorite competitor, and the one area that brings a lump to my throat whenever I think of it…the meadow with the luminarias that spell out HOPE.

‘Cause let’s face it, folks, that is really what this is all about.  It’s about giving hope that someday lives will not be cut short, that there will be no grief, no fear, no painful and debilitating treatments.  People will not need to even worry about the word remission because there will be no cancer in the first place.

What a wonderful world that would be…

Hair, Beautiful Hair…! It’s the Hair Fair!!

The Hair Fair is coming!!  And there’s some awesomely great fun you can participate in RIGHT NOW, before the Fair arrives…so get ready to be creative!

First, the Hair Fair Photo Contest began 13th June and goes until July 1 –  so you all will need to start taking your pictures and getting your entries ready! What can you win? Imagine this: fantastic hair pack prizes AND Early Access VIP Passes for you and your friends!  How can you say no to that? Information is on the website: https://hairfair.wordpress.com/2016/06/10/hair-fair-photo-contest-2016/.

The other way you can participate is to decorate a bandana for Bandana Day – the bandanas are sold to raise funds for Wigs for Kids.  It is horrible that some children can’t have a childhood because of illness; Wigs for Kids ensures that the children get wigs to give them at least a little dignity.  I hope you’ll decorate a bandana; here’s the website with the info:  https://hairfair.wordpress.com/2016/06/20/bandana-day-make-a-bandana-for-wigs-for-kids/

So don’t delay – get creative today!

Are You Going To UAC Medieval Faire?

2016 RFL UAC MEDIEVAL FAIRE

“Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme…”

And speaking of time…you have only a few days more to get to Unmasking A Cure Medieval Faire!  You really should hurry, or you’ll miss out on fantabulous items like the following from some more of our amazing merchants!

Now, this will be the last set of merchants blogged by me…but trust me, there is so much more to see and do!  In fact, tomorrow I’ll bring you some of the gorgeous sights you can see when you drop by the faire.  But for today, more guilt-free shopping fun!  All the fun of shopping and the warm glow that comes from doing good on top of it all – how can you resist that???

First is a designer that is both prolific and uber-talented!  She even has hair, shapes, eyes and skin to go with her intricately designed outfits. AND she has three gotyas with gorgeous wreaths and chokers to win!  To say I suffered shopping overload is to put it mildly…but like the intrepid shop-a-holic I am, I divided and totally conquered – and I know you will have the same fun at the TFF – Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions – booth!  From regal robes to hunter habiliment, this merchant has your needs covered.  The names of the outfits are on the pictures, and yes, I used her skins, shapes, hairs and eyes, so you’ll see how awesome they look:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Another multi-talented merchant is MacMoragh an Gabha – if you want to have wicked awesome clothing and weapons, this is the place to go!  The weapons can be controlled by either its own hud or a multi-weapon hud, in case you have many different kinds of weapons.  The weapons are also available unscripted for RP play.  The weapons use Spellfire scripts and so can be used on any SpellFire, Unity or Omega sims.  And if you ask, you can also have custom-made weapons!  How cool is that??

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Another multi-talented merchant is Figment, who makes, among other things, weapons and home and garden decor, all hud-driven and with amazing detail!  The weapon featured, a saif with ruby handle, is a work of art.  The fountain and divider are not far behind either – especially the fountain, with the water flowing from the eyes like tears.

And lastly, Kismet, a tremendously talented designer who specializes in home and garden decor.  When I saw their items, I just drooled.  Once I mopped up the puddle, I realized that this set was so perfect together; isn’t it gorgeous??  The shine on that table…the comfy-looking suede and adorable tassels on the tuffet…the glow of the pillar candle and chandelier…the lovely potted prayer plant…and a chiming mantle clock!  Done in wood, brass and olive green tones, it would make an impressive addition to your medieval home:

I don’t know how you’ve managed to keep away from the Faire if you’ve not been there yet, but really, you should be running there soon!  Time’s a-wastin’!

Get Ye To The Faire – The UAC Medieval Faire, That Is!

2016 RFL UAC MEDIEVAL FAIRE

The Faire is still going strong – with a variety of activities and just a TON of shopping opportunities!  There’s so many stores, you can get whiplash looking back and forth to see all the amazing items these talented merchants made!

So of course, I need to blog and make sure you go and have this wonderful experience!

The first store I’m featuring today is Toryuumon Mahō Sukurōru, a store featuring clothing, landscaping, riding fantasy animals, and fantasy avatars.  And you will be so amazed at the items this store has included in their RFL vendors!  One is the Green Phoenix scroll, so gorgeous I am keeping it on my wall!  They also have Shuri Castle Garden landscaping, a giant chestnut tree, a pine tree and white flowers – all of them perfect additions to your landscape!

I also tried on some totally fun headdresses and jewels from Love; I enjoyed myself so much!  It was great trying on the various items, and I am sure that these would add to your RP fun…anything from soldiers to royalty to magic wielders would love to use these to make the RP more ‘real’. The Blood Queen, in particular, is a work of art!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The next store is Shiva, who offers the Celtic Beauty – Phoenix dress, with sexy embroidered slits on the front of the dress and an equally sexy neckline with ribbons of fabric at the shoulders.  I love the deep red of the dress – it is so femme fatale!  Perfect for a sorceress or an evil queen!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The last merchant for today is BamPu, who makes the most detailed and breathtaking outfits – the two that are in the RFL vendors are stunning!  I think I need to become a queen somewhere so I can wear them!  Actually, they would also fit in many formal situation too – but hey, might as well hold out for getting a crown! This is the Dragoun Queen outfit, in black and then in red also.

Giving to cancer research has never been so much fun – or as rewarding in so many ways!

It’s Still Going Strong! Make Sure You Visit the Faire Today!

2016 RFL UAC MEDIEVAL FAIRE

Yes, the Faire is still going strong, with tournaments, jousts, music, trivia and a TON of shopping opportunities!  I saw the most awesomely fast-paced and colorful magic duels yesterday – if you have missed the faire this far, you have missed some truly spectacular events.  But fear not – there are a few more days to get your medieval fix!

And to try to entice you, I am going to post about a few more merchants and the amazing things they’ve created to help raise funds for RFL!

Hig’s designer made 6 – yes, SIX! – items, all in purple to honor RFL.  Her clothing is gorgeous, with the flow that only comes from flexi parts.  Sadly, though, her clothing is only made for classic avis…but the clothing is so lustrous and tempting, you may choose to go without your mesh avi to wear these clothes! The Ranger outfits also have a couple of options to wear – with or without the skirt or kilt.  Gorgeous, no?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The next talented designer is a friend of mine; I keep trying to persuade her to open a store, and maybe after this faire she will, but right now you can only get these fantastic clothes at the faire!  Till offers six kirtles, lovely and flattering whether worn solo or over clothing, and a dress called Rhia, an ivory silk  strapless dress with a metallic-looking belt that is so gorgeous and flattering!  I took these pictures on her sim, a labor of love she created for her SL husband – soooo romantic!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And the last merchant for today (but fear not, I still have more merchants in the wings awaiting their turn!) is God Mod, who has three dresses that are just to die for!  The Heath Gypsy, Highland Gypsy and Orchard Gypsy gives you three options to be a sexy medieval gypsy, complete with corseted top, skirt, and shawl!  Silky and colorful, you will so stand out in any RP situation!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Are you saying right now, “Tell me how to get, how to get to the Faire”?  No worries – your wish is my command!
