Fantasy Faire … The Exotic Lightness of Being

My favorite annual inworld fashion fair — the Fantasy Faire — began April 2nd and runs through April 10th.   I love this fair for several key reasons.  The purpose — to help eradicate cancer — is something I can *completely* get behind.  The celebration of diversity in culture and genres is something that *completely* resonates with me and I’d love to see more of (and I intend to walk my own talk in that regard).   And…well, there are so very many wonderful, imaginative, exotic, playful, amusing lovely creations there.  I picked up several and hope to show them over the next few days.  The vast majority (all but two) of the lovely items I selected are those for which 100% of the proceeds goes to the American Cancer Society in the fight to eradicate cancer.   

To kick off the entries in my weblog, I wear an ever gorgeous creation from Evie’s Closet that I pair with an ever exotic wonderful skin from Mynerva.  I just relish Mynerva’s fantasy skins.  I saw their skins for the first time last summer and then again later in the summer when I picked up this wildly lovely drow skin at the Platinum Hunt.

As for these two Fantasy Faire items, fashion details follow along with more background about the Fantasy Faire, which was organized by Friends Fighting Cancer.  This, from the Friends Fighting Cancer press release:

From Saturday April 2nd to Sunday April 10th 2011, thousands of Second Life residents and creators are coming together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.  Friends Fighting Cancer (FFC) has transformed nine sims of Second Life into a fantasy wonderland:  the Fantasy Faire 2011 to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).  The Fantasy Faire 2011 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world.  Ten days of commerce, special events, live music concerts, exclusive items auctions, RFL ribbon hunts and fundraising to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.  Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from top SL Fantasy Creators in stunning sims designed by builders creating some of the most noticeable fantasy spots on the SL destination guide.  This nine sim event is bringing together such fantasy genres as Fairy, Elven, Magic, Mermaid, Goth, Demon, Vamp, Neko, Micro, Steampunk, Sci-Fi and more including fantasy landscaping and appearance such as skin & hair!  FFC’s goal in 2011 is to raise $20,000 USD for RFL of SL. The Fantasy Faire 2011 will also offer visitors an opportunity  to celebrate the survivors of cancer, remember and honor loved ones lost, and to fight back with the American Cancer Society.  The Fantasy Faire 2011 is made possible by the generous support of Sim and Event Sponsors: Dark Goddess Designs, Evie’s Closet, Fallen Gods, Fantasy Furniture by Arachne Anatra, Hoof It, Mer Betta, Petable, The Looking Glass, The Arcanum, T R I D E N T, Mycon3 fantasy sim, Fondazione Connell – The Project and Roleplay Guide.  To join us this year just search for “Fantasy Faire Central” on the map – open to the public 2nd – 10th April, 2011.
