"Celtic Whisk" by Bambi Chicque

“Celtic Whisk” by Bambi Chicque

And I visit the lagoon each morn

My forest friends and I

The glades look to us with somber expressions

Birds singing their glory songs

My dragon whisks in the fountains

While I pause and sing along.

Today is a good day to be Celtic

Rejoiced to be bourne.

***

As I visit the fair lands of Fantasy Faire 2015,

I am again and again astonished at the patrons

with all they sport and wear who are all shopping

and flying about.  I even saw an enormous…

I mean HUGE giant female avatar all in blue…..

Mermaids are splashing about at Odyssey and

Poets are chirping poems at Poppetsborough!

It’s a grand gala everywhere!

So yesterday I dashed into my Fantasy Faire review

folder and proudly dressed in Celtic attire; especially to

show off LURE’s Desire Muscle Skin in “Depth”;

a splendid midnight blue tone!

I couldn’t let that giant out-do me!

Lilith’s Den is overflowing with the Celtic vibrations in

much of her creations.  With not much time on my hands, I

raced over to Dandelion Daydreams Factory to set out

her Celtic Marker Stones with the Celtic Knots in a

Lapislazuli color while I splashed about atop their highest

mountain with my forest friends!

I am especially delighted, too, with Angelic Design’s Infierna Fountains

(available in several colors) as well as thrilled to wear

Gauze’s “The Alchemist” outfit with the Celtic flare and

excellence in texturing!

Analog Dog has done it again!

“Sola” is available in several colors along

with the add-on length!  I love long curly hair!

Bravo to all the Fantasy Faire Designers!

"Memoirs of YoZakura" by Bambi Chicque

“Memoirs of YoZakura” by Bambi Chicque

A reflection of YoZakura revolves around a stunning epic series of Japanese artistic gardens,

waterfalls, structures, zibburats and cherry blossom trees.

To stroll amid this gorgeous terrace and garden style district of Fantasy Faire 2015

creates a longing to stay and never leave.  One must visit YoZakura if they ever wish

to visit the lands of Japan and feel as if you have unpacked your suitcase

and arrived amid a distinct cultural nation of the Japanese history.

European names for the country of Japan probably originated with Marco Polo’s influence,

who most likely adopted a name for it used in a Chinese dialect.

I believe, since most everything I have ever read or seen about this beautiful country,

with every segment of their culture and stories are derived from adventurous persons

of history who created an everlasting impact through the arts, architecture, song and dance,

economy, science, government and religion.

Spending most of my life in the fashion industry, I have had the blessed opportunities

to meet people from around the world; just about every culture and country.

We in Second Life are able to do this every day.

The encounters we see through Linden’s visions of how SL is created “by the people”

amazes us all as we embark on our daily virtual journeys.

The Fantasy Faire is among the most popular in all its grandness where we all take

so much back with us, be it to our homes, our wardrobe inventories or

through the windows of photography.

Visiting YoZakura is a stunning experience.

I personally cannot take enough photos of this delightful and perfect sim!

There is never enough said about visiting Yoakura,

but I must alter the subject and reflect upon a fantasy dream in story:

First, let me introduce you to an Azul Modish Geisha, Kabocha.

She has graced in age and beauty from her former years of prestige

with the Samurai to the art of the Kabuki Theatre.

This lonely night she sought out to visit the gardens she once played in as a girl

and found herself lifted up with spiritual pleasures upon arriving beside the Torii’s near the sacred grounds.

Climbing the winding stone path along the lit gardens and trails, a hissing sound sped through

the wind and touched her soft white shoulders.

She had heard of the great beasts that once lurked in the darkness

of the ponds and skies here in this cherry blossom oasis.

Kabocha whirled around and flew toward the vibrant sonority with all her braveness

to see what brushed upon her moments ago.

The curiosity grew stronger as she panned the lands of YoZakura.

Then, there it was in clear sight.

High upon a mountain.

As big as Samurai’s heart.

Climbing to the very tip as far as it could reach; the incredible large tail and claws

braved their way into the rock canyons as bits of stone tumbled below.

Each step pounded like thunder.

Then it stopped.

"The YoZakura Dragon" by Bambi Chicque

“The YoZakura Dragon” by Bambi Chicque

As he turned, their eyes met.

All sounds ceased and Kabocha’s heart throbbed with echos throughout the skies above.

What is his plan, she wondered?

Will he draw the purple fire toward her that comes from his breath?

Will he fly and capture her with his powerful spell?

Moments passed as their inspection of one another became a curious gaze.

Both hearts met atop the gales and breeze.

A kind of distant friendship was slowly presumed with a wordless acceptance.

They have both graced in age and beauty from former years of prestige

with the Samurai to the art all Japan’s wonders.

It felt like days they both stood so still admiring each other’s unique charm and smiles.

As years passed Kabocha still finds herself roaming the great land of YoZakura

and gazing up at the mountain to find her esteemed friend she once felt as one in harmony with.

"Twilight Flight" by Bambi Chicque

“Twilight Flight” by Bambi Chicque

If you should happen to visit YoZakura before the land disappears, you too may find this

mythical dragon and make a new friend along the way.

I am sure Kabocha will still travel there, too, and wonder as she recreates fading memoirs

to scribe into notebooks and blogs!

Whisper a sweet hello to both if you are lucky enough to capture a glimpse of them yourself!

Who knows, maybe you will be one of YoZakura’s adventurous history makers, too!

"Speculum Regalae" by Bambi Chicque

“Speculum Regalae” by Bambi Chicque

Fantasy Faire is all about the extraordinary in all phases

from terraforming, sim design, building as well as fantasy art

in fashion form!

As soon as I opened Spyralle’s blogger review packs I instantly

flew in circles with delight with her Wind Rider Coromell Mask, arm

braces & Owl Moon Midsummer Night Gown!

I love fractal art in all it’s wonderous beauty

and she brought an outstanding pleasure with it to fantasy fashion!

Lure has created a rainbow of fantasy skins that I cannot wait to share all

with you; for now I am wearing her Desire Greenish Skin which totally

set Spyralle’s wardrobe in perfection to painting a photo at the

Aurora Fantasy Faire Sim!

“A Novelty Fantasy Junction” by Bambi Chicque

Wow!

Amazing, breathtaking, adventurous and spellbinding!

Second Life visitors are in for a treat, as usual, this year!

Here is a special Sneak Peak……….

With only a little bit of time to hop in for a quick photo during

today’s Blogger Preview Day….before rushing off to a meeting…..

I found myself wishing I didn’t have a ‘JOB’! lol

No worries, I am back and shooting more pix now as we speak!

Alpha Auer of Alpha Tribe is truly an incredibly clever gal!  I have tons

of her wardrobe sets and when I received several review packs yesterday,

I quickly put “Silent Hero” in a special, special folder for today!

Black Tulip Poses created 3 magical and whimsical pose sets for this year’s

faire, too!  I’ll be trotting around with her Magical Staff and Blue Magic Ball

for months forward!

Tomorrow, April 23 2015 ~ 9:00am SL time marks the grand opening

"Steppen'Wolf!" by Bambi Chicque

“Steppen’Wolf!” by Bambi Chicque

I decided to “step out” of my box and take a peak at some of the

Linden Endowment LEA Projects recently…..and…

to take photos, of course!

When I received MeshedUp’s “Blindfold” review pack and saw it was

available in gold – I knew instantly what skin and outfit I wanted to

present along with it!

So off I flew to “City Inside Out” LEA20 Project and found this

daunting wolf pack running alongside me!  There is so much to see

at this project; you must go explore this yourself!

LoveMe Skins created a fantasy skin set for Mystic Realms Fair 2014 and

it’s still available at her shop; I am wearing the Gold Freya here!

If you are not familiar with Eshi Otawara’s designs, she is amazing!

She is the Creator for the huge LOTUS at previous Fantasy Faire and

has some absolutely gorgeous gowns and accessories at her shop.

I had bought this “I Am Made Of Glitter” Gown Set

….hmmm… about 2 years ago? And saved it for

a rainy day to pose with something GOLD!

There is actually longer pieces for the skirt, but it covered the

dashing wolf for the photo, but the short hint here looks sweet!

"Run River Run" by Bambi Chicque

“Run River Run” by Bambi Chicque

Upon pondering of the Fantasy Faires of Second Life’s past,

and submitting to the Blogger Challenge “I Remember“….

the thought of all the amazing wardrobes I came back with to

wear for fun and show off or to pose in for my blog

floated highest above all other ideas for the challenge!

So, today I pulled out a wonderful collage attire from

Lilith’s Den and garnished myself with a few other fantasy items.

“Uria Tribal Dancer” was Runa’s Relay For Life item last year and

she still has all the color sets available even now in the RFL kiosks

at her shop!  (For men and women!!)

She told me it’s one of her best sellers and I see why!

We all make our way to the fairelands to shop, check out the entertainment,

shows and mostly to take in the awe and beauty of the sim’s builds….

which I hear from one Builder that they are absolutely elaborate

and breathtaking this year….once again!

I have photos after photos of the 2 years past that never made it to my

blog; but some did for a fairy tale book I plan to publish that was

written about 6-8 years ago, some made it to my personal photography

website (and sold) and some did make it to flickr!

I think in the next couple of days I’ll go through those photos and put together

a bit of a storyline and show off some of those beautiful photos.

But for now, I wanted to do something that might be a bit different for this

challenge and remind everyone that there will be so much available for sale

where proceeds go directly to Relay For Life and the Cancer Research Fund it is meant

for.  This horrible disease has touched us all with such sadness of losing

friends or families….I hope someday enough money is put toward this fund

where the Scientists and Medical Professionals of the world finally

find a cure for the Big C!

So, this year make sure you take plenty of Linden and look for those

RFL kiosks for your purchases and help to benefit in a little way yourself!

"Dance Of The Rose Maidens" by Bambi Chicque

“Dance Of The Rose Maidens” by Bambi Chicque

I have been a dancer since the age of around 3.

Younger years of wearing ballet costumes, tap shoes,

marching boots and on up to my more savvy years twirling

the baton, dancing half time for The Dallas Cowboys, The Dallas

Mavericks and, yes, I have even danced on stage with Prince

~ a performanceon a New Year’s Eve…..

and drove my 280ZX home in the ice storm…..

couldn’t get it up the cliff to my apartment…..

and had to wait in my

skimpy purple costume until someone came along

in the weeeeeeeee hours of the bitter cold morning

to push me up the hill!

So, do I have memories of dancing??

*winks*

Naturally, when Musa sent me her review pack of this stunning

“Pole Art Poses”, I danced my way onto the pole and scattered

Half Deer’s roses around me!

You can find this elequant pose set at the current Pose Fair 2015!

Happy Dancing………….!…………and Posing………….!

"Hold My Hand" by Bambi Chicque

“Hold My Hand” by Bambi Chicque

With a little love, and some tenderness
We’ll walk upon the water
We’ll rise above this mess
With a little peace, and some harmony
We’ll take the world together
We’ll take ’em by the hand
‘Cause I’ve got a hand for you
‘Cause I wanna run with you

By Hootie & The Blowfish

I couldn’t wait to visit “Balloons” by Cica Ghost and

I am still not finished exploring there!  Lots of lively scenic views

with noteworthy landscaping and designs!

Bravo to Cica!

"Bohoho Summer Time" by Bambi Chicque

“Bohoho Summer Time” by Bambi Chicque

Ahhh! The Hippie Era & Boho Style is mouthwatering fun!

Who can forget the subculture youth movement that started

back in the mid-sixties with all it’s Woodstock Festivals, beatniks,

the Greenwich Village hangout nights (yes I did this!), peace signs,

flowered Volkswagon Bugs (slug-bug!) and, yup, even the

Hippie Trail to India!

Flower Power to Ya!

I have been waiting for something to pose with for Kalopsia’s

bohemian style “Gypsy Shack” in my favorite colour, turquoise!

So, naturally I giggled with delight when The Annex sent me her newest

wardrobe set for The Cosmopolitan Room:

“Earth Goddess” Top & Skirts in 6 spectacular color palettes!

Stunning and perfect in texture and style!

I snuck over to Dandelion Daydreams Factory to set the items

out to pose with since I knew Wishbringer had her

Offsim Cattails waving in the shoreline….

We will keep the set up on the sim for just a day, so if you want to

run take a few pix………hurry up!

It’s turned out to be a popular posing spot and a place to relax or just

take in all the surrounding beauty….
