Relay for Life

Soooo…. how’re you all doing?

It’s busy as usual around my place. Even when I say I’m not doing as much I still am which is kind of funny. Most people who know me think that I’m rather on the insane side. I swear, I’m slowing down and not working as much but they usually do one of those… ‘yea yea… sure.’

I don’t know why they’d think that. *blink blink*

This post will be a bit of a round up of newness from the beginning of this month.

Firstly we have We <3 RP.

Knitting and Sewing Pillow Set TXTAwesomeness abounds with some revisted favorites… some sewing fun.  I get a lot of feedback that my sets and different things like this are really the favorites from my store so we’re going with it with a little more gusto lately getting back to my roots… plus the things I enjoy rather than trying to accommodate for every one else. yay me!

There are two versions as there was before.  A stool and a pillow set.  Obviously the main difference is where you’re sitting. The stool is very cute, has a lot of options to change the color of the cushion and a lot of things to do.

I amp’d up the animations.  You can sew, embroider, sit, relax, have a cup of Knitting and Sewing Stool Set TXTcocoa or some tea.  There’s crocheting, knitting… it even has a few sits in it for the male types if they feel like taking a load off.  See I did try to think of everything, and I suppose you know… guys did sometimes have to sew.  Even if it might have been under duress it DID happen. Along with the cute lil stool you get rugs… two of em, braided and woven.  Then there’s some balls of yarn, a basket with sewing and knitting things in it.  A nice lil set. Use parts or the whole thing all weighing in at 1 to 2 LI.

Then there’s the pillow… you get a slightly modified version of the accessories, the quilt is shaded a lil different under the basket lol but you get the same rugs, balls of yarn and all… instead of the stool you get a…. well pillow.  Texture change for it too though not as many colors.  There are more sits and kneels sort of thing for the pillow so that it can be used for the slave types that need to do chores.  It has less crafty things… sewing, knitting and embroidery and sorry… no cocoa. I suppose I could have dug through and found the crosslegged one I have but I didn’t.

Each of them are out at display for We <3 RP, and each of them are at a 30% discount.

Take a taxi to get there

The second event thing is Twisted Summer RFL sort of benefit.  The people for Twisted hunt do a thing where they raise money for RFL during the summer, Cool right?Av Attach - Sweeping the Floors

Well the stuff I have for over there is a couple of cool things… It was Twisted Fairytales and while I didn’t twist it up too much I created a few pieces.  First since it always seems like there’s a lot of sweeping going on in stories from Cinderella to many other characters I did an av attach broom.  Chore-worthy something you wear and work anywhere. You know how it goes and how I’ve made these things… they’re usually favorites for people that like to be able to do things on their own.

It has 5 animations in it.  Sweeping for men and women, you click it to bring up a menu after wearing it and choose how you want to be. Woot.

Huntsman Camp SetSecondly I revamped up something I made awhile back but has not been available in the store… a camp set, this one is meant for huntsman or miscreants…. either way it works or for whoever. It’s got some good pieces and a real nice defensive perimeter LOL

Both sets are 100% donation to RFL during the event, I added some other vendors with donation set to RFL as well like I usually do.

TP me please, they says as they clicks the lil line in the text.

There’s also a freebie, a 100% freebie at the landing of the main store. But you have to find it. hehehe

I decided to get into a hunt, I know I haven’t been much lately but on occasion and I got to thinking… why not.  I mean really, this is a good way to get people around, and to give them something to do along with having a lil something to go home with.

It’s the Silk Road Hunt, so I made up a simple thing.

Spice baskets meant for a merchant but anyone could use them.

Spice Merchant Baskets - Hunt Gift

If you want them you need to come to the MAIN STORE, and hunt around the landing for the lil pergola thingie, click it and be rewarded. It’s not outside of 30 meters so don’t want too far.

That be about it for now… hope you’re having a great week.

Take care.

So… So very late

So late in making some announcements. It’s terrible. I have to keep on top of these better don’t you think? Maybe not always blog posts but at least the ones in world. Ok, so… here’s the thing. I have a lot of things going on right now that you might not imagine.

Firstly! ROMP!  It’s been going on since the 12th and will be ending this week!!!!  Omg! I can’t believe I haven’t temped you with this yet…. I am so so very sorry, from the bottom of my heart.  Though you’re going to despise the next bit.  This time for ROMP I did a………. *lowers her voice.* gacha.

I know! Deplorable things that eat at your lindens. They’re evil.  Evil I tell you.

Anyhow… It’s a cool set.

Bindings Too GachaDo you remember that one Gacha I did awhile back, the Sleek Bindings one? Well this one kinda goes along with it.  Same wood tones for the most part, metal and all… So if you have pieces of that you can have pieces of this too to go along with it. Now the other parts… lets see.  It’s an extensive lil set with various cages firstly. A small cramped cage, the person stuck in this bad boy is curled up in a ball and only has enough room to wiggle just ever so slightly. Precious.  Then there’s a kennel cage. Rather plain, some straw in the bottom along with an old blanket.  This has a bunch of animations in it… 31 to be exact. So since we’re talking about commons I’ll stick to those for now.

Some of the other commons are a wall decor thing, I love it actually, looks cool.  Some candles, on stands and a cluster, rug to decorate with 5 different furry options, some toys to decorate. Yanno, crops, cuffs and restraints. A few other lil decor items like that and a set of feed bowls. The feed bowls have 5 animations and then there is a bowl you wear as an av attachment that a submissive can feed themselves with. A really nice lil blocky sort of seat is also available as a common with 9 animations in it.

So… if those are just the commons then the RARES! OOooo…. yea… a different version of the seat with some FemDom and some MaleDom sorts of animation sets in it.  Bondage for the Mistress to be placing her poor boy in such a tricky spot taking advantage of him… and some fun things for the guy to have some fun with his girl.  Mhmm.. I like it.  Then then the last but certainly not least piece is the draped decorated kennel cage. Plush inside with a mattress and pillow for a precious pet or high slave to recline in.  The drape sweeps along the back and has three fabrics to choose from to accent the piece.  Not only that is has… 56(!) animations in it.  Reclining, being lazy, being flirty… self pleasure, and much much more.

All packed in a gacha.  Now… I am going to allow for trading in to have no transfer versions for anyone who wants them. Yepp Yepp… just send in a folder the ones you have to trade in, and a NC outlining them… leave an offline so I’m looking for it and I’ll give you no transfer versions of any of the ones you win.

Get yerself to ROMP!! And create a scene

Leafy Maple TreesWhat else… Home and Garden Expo benefiting RFL is going on strong!! I have been still getting my RL in order and you know it’s going to sound dramatic but you know how it is when you think one thing is finally getting settled then ANOTHER thing happens?  I swear I live in a freekin soap opera. I mean really, just how much shit can get dumped on a person yea?

But anyhow… awesome awesome event.  Lots of really great things and tons of shopping.  I have a few things in vendors there for donation that I’ve had around, there’s a hunt item even with gift things in it.  The couple of items I have work together fairly well. A set of trees and a gazebo thing.  I was going for something different but this is what I got and it isn’t half bad probably. The trees are something I’ve fiddled with on and off.  They have similar trunks to ones I’ve done before but the leaves are maple leaves… colored a lil differently.  They look good and I like them.  Buying these while the Home and Garden Expo is going gives 100% donation to RFL.

The other item that goes along with it and is in a scene over on Hope 8 is a gazebo or build of sorts. It’s meant to look like it’s Well of Kayleighbeen there for awhile.  Not exactly ruins but not new either with an aged sort of feel to it. I’m not sure if I got it across so you’d have to tell me.  What do you think hmm? I really don’t think the picture does it justice.  I mean I really don’t, it’s too sterile looking lol.  However it was all I could get to come up with ok.  It’s a fairly decent sized build, and around 25 LI.  So yea you have that but nestled in amongst trees and things it looks pretty good.  I guess I have visions of an old well or something in the woods… Celtic or something maybe… hidden and forgotten except for the locals who know that it is there and the story behind it. Visiting it on occasion to remember.

Yea I know, I like stories… love them to be honest, and love to give character to my home… my builds… my store… wherever you might find me.

100% donation to RFL for this lil beast too… so travel to HOPE 8 and my display which just so happens to span over two sides of the path.  May 19th – June 4th

>> travel with me to the isles of hope <<

So what’s next?  The Unmasking a Cure Medieval faire.  I have a booth here with some already made up product for donation to RFL.  So you should go here too!! Lots of lovely vendors putting their things out there for a good cause.  It’s my second or third year doing it… I can’t remember really but I’ve done it more than once at least lol

So go yonder as well!! For info::  Unmasking A Cure Medieval Faire RFL of SL

<< To TP! >>

I just really gotta keep on top of these things. Seriously.

I’m going to close this for now. Uhhuh. Maybe do a 25L Tues. post.

The Story of Chaddul Ro

So the Faire is wrapping up for 2017.  It will be open to the public from what I understand through May 4th.  If you would like to go…. take a taxi to my sim >>>> Chaddul Ro <<<<

So much has happened and I know I have been very quiet.  There have been a lot of reasons for this… some… very personal and some just the whirlwind of creating for the faire with all of the things to do.

This year saying good bye is even harder than usual… Unfortunately I can’t be here like I usually am due to some real life obligations that just can’t wait.  I won’t be able to be here when the Fairelands disappear into the mist again.  I won’t be able to be here when the sims are taken offline like I usually am.

Saying good-bye will have to be a little bit different.  I wish I could be here.

This year creating for Fantasy Faire was more personal than ever.  They haven’t posted my interview yet… a blurb of it for part of the dedication, and honestly I don’t know when or if they will post the rest of it.  It is very long winded, and personal.

You guys… you’re going to get something no one else ever will…. a piece of Chaddul Ro.  A part of the very heart of the sim, there were two integral pieces to what it represented.  The beacon… the towers with the flames and then the sacred space. A memorial/remembrance area on the sim.

The beacon was sold at auction.

The alter will not be sold.

It will not be made available except for when I ever decide to make it that way.

Right now… it is available to you.  My group members and only my group members.

Members of the in world store group will be allowed to have a smaller version that has been made into a personal sized meditation space.

Chaddul Ro Personal Alter Space - Group OnlyA

Parts of it are very high land impact.  I didn’t really make this worrying about that.  I wanted it to have certain elements so it has those elements.  You can edit or leave off certain parts if you like and never use them or use all of it…

A special group only vendor will be placed at the landing near the Fantasy Faire Sign that you can access. Make your group active, pay 1L that will be refunded and get it. I’ll leave it up until I return from my business in real life on the 8th.

I am going to post the story, the inspiration and reasons behind Chaddul Ro here on my personal store blog.  It will also be posted I believe on the https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/ sponsors interviews. There is more to the interview but this is the bulk of it… if you are curious, read ahead.

You might want to get some kleenex though… I have had more than one person who has pre-read it as I was editing tell me that I suck.

How was Chaddul Ro born? What inspired it, what is its story?

** warning label attached** Long text ahead.

I have been asked how much of my story am I going to share this year, and I couldn’t figure out how to answer that. There is the faire answer, the concept and the idea of the orcs and then there is the personal answer. What do we share? I have talked about this with a few people and one of my favorite responses to it was… “*f* it, say it, do it, the people who get it will, the people who don’t never will.”

Whenever I do one of these sims I put a reason or dedication to it. From specific family members to concepts or ideas… feelings.

The orcs of Chaddul Ro!  Chaddul Ro is the name of the outpost, the orcs are part of a tribe called the Chal Khizzur. I got a little bit fancier this time around creating something of a persona that I would draw upon as I created it.  These orcs are fiercely protective and strong. The whole concept was about strength.

RFL Weekend — A Wish for Life

papercranes

A few years back I did a RFL sim on the track for RFL weekend.  Every year they ask me if I can do another one and most of the time I’m busy.  This year I decided to fit one in though things got a bit hard for awhile, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to.  Life has been so difficult for me this year getting time in world.

They gave me the region called Life on the track.

It’s rather fitting technically because I had been mulling over a concept when I was asked to do the sim that really sort of suited that.

Have you ever read the story of Sadako?  She was a young Japanese girl who died in the 1950’s from leukemia, it was a story I read when I was young and in school.  Something that stuck with me, I re-read it before doing this sim partly because when I was asked that was one of the first things that popped into my head.  Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes.  When I read it I of course learned how to fold them and used to often.  I loved the little things.  The story itself centers around this little girl who gets sick and slowly dies. One day while in the hospital her best friend came to visit her and said she had a solution.  Her friend brought paper and scissors and showed her how to fold a paper crane. Sadako asked how this would help to which her friend reminded her of an old story… The crane was supposed to live a thousand years, and if a sick person folds one thousand paper cranes the gods will grant their wish making them healthy again.

Her friend gave her the wish of life creating for her the first of her paper cranes and with her friends help learned to fold them and until she died it was her goal to continue.  Friends, family, nurses… everyone saved pieces of paper to bring to Sadako so that she could try to fold her cranes.  Her brother hung them from the ceiling and she was surrounded by them as she slowly worked on them throughout her illness.  With each crane she made her wish.. “I wish I’d get better…”

“Out of colored paper, cranes
come flying into
our house”

This once vibrant little girl who only wanted to be able to run was stricken with something so terrible… it always stuck with me and as her mother whispered softly “Oh flock of heavenly cranes, Cover my child with your wings.” swinging over her head within the hospital it reminds me of how often cancer in its varying forms strikes for whatever reason.  In this instance war, the dropping of the atomic bomb… just terrible war created a whole generations afflicted by the cruelty of man.  Everyday people are stricken, suffer and are in pain all hoping and wishing only to get better.

That is the inspiration for this sim.  A quiet, peaceful place of reflection.  Japanese inspired garden with water, lilies, a gazebo and trees… Maples and things all sweeping around a wood path…. and if you look within the water… paper cranes floating.

The paper cranes… wishes.  Wishes from me to those who traverse the path, to those who suffer, to everyone who is afflicted or in pain.

I wish that you could get better, and I will always continually be folding my paper cranes through the span of my life for those like Sadako, a hope… a wish… a dream that those vibrant little girls who just want to run to be safe from the pain.

Come RFL this weekend with me, and make a wish.

Thank you so so so much!

I love the Faire.  Have I ever mentioned that?

Yes?  Well… ok.  I love the Faire.

In this time when there are SOoooo many shopping events, gacha events, this event that event all of them asking for money I know that it is harder and harder for folks to really be able to help out or go out there.  I mean really, even just all the charity events.  RFL all over and these things.

Fantasy Faire is just different.

I know it has a crapton of shopping sims.  Yes, but the whole intent and purpose is way different.  The core of it.  The heart of it.  Between all the fundraising events like the jail and bails…. which really can be great fun as people are tormented for our amusement and then the tours, the festival offerings, the shows.  Cabaret shows, particle shows, plays, music. Role-plays going on, stories abound linked to the different Fairelands. The beautiful sims to spend time on, a masquerade ball, the auctions, silent and live.

So so so much.  I was actually not aware of some things going on until I started looking at the events realizing just how packed every single  day of the Faire is. You almost can’t do it all… there’s so much, you have to actually plan it out a bit. *laughs*  This year I got to enjoy it a little differently again, more as a Faire goer.  The last few building a sim by the time you get to the Faire you are dropping at your desk and still trying to keep going because you have a few more things that need fixing up.  This year I was able to spend it a little differently when I did.  It was good to remember but I miss creating for it still.

But the real reason for this post is to highlight the silent auction.

Last night the auction that I had posted up for the 6 months worth of product had a bit of a bidding war towards the end and it got up to 35,000L

I know for the promised things that someone can get that really is a bargain still however I am so happy that it was able to make a decent amount for the Faire in the end.  We always hope for more of course, it is for a good cause and granted this is based on a promise.  You really didn’t know what you were going to get and of course that’s a fairly big thing.  What if… on the off chance someone doesn’t like one damned thing I made that period? (you don’t think I don’t think of these things?) So I am grateful, and thankful for the people who were willing to put their faith in my store, product and person.  I won’t let you down.

I hope. *grins*

So to the winners of the Silent Auction!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kit Lyons (kariritaisho resident), and Cherish Bellic for driving that price up and then in a weird twist of fate decide to split the prize. *laughs* to you both again thank you, and I hope you enjoy all of the little packages that will be coming your way.

So…. now…. what do I do for next year?
