Medieval Fantasies

Hiya everyone! Earlier I had the pleasure of exploring the Medieval Fantasy Fair '16 and finding many hidden swords for their Mini Hunt which is right there throughout the fair displays. The setups are gorgeous by the way, first a walk through high vaulted ceilings decorated with dragons and eerie statues, then at the end of that huge room you head through a door to the crypts below. Most of the displays and swords are down there so don't miss that part of the trip :) Besides being a visual treat, you get to claim many free prizes that include a mixture of clothing, accessories, and home decor. Tonight I get to show you some of my new treasures!

First we have a lovely white dress from the sword from [FAIDA] which is their Marilyn dress. Standard mesh sizes, exemplary take on the icon Marilyn Monroe's style. I am wearing one of a few terrific crown prizes with it, this one being our gift from Tamiron Forge. Forest Crown * Unisex reminds me of a Game of Thrones (Baratheon) crown with the stag horns, but with the detailed grapevine and delicate bunches of grapes that simply add another layer of natural beauty.

I couldn't resist sharing the other crowns I found, since we all deserve to feel like royalty from time to time. On the left I am enjoying the prize from Tayren's Fantasy Fashion, their TFF Queen's Crown with Emerald and Citrine. This comes in a King's version as well, and is resizable. On the right you can see the adorable {Acios} Crown - Female on a slender headband and jauntily cocked to the side. It also has a male version inside, and you can resize this one as well. Quite different but equally fun ways to be royal!

Our gift hidden in the sword from BPd includes this lovely dress and the flowery crown! This is their Whispers of Summer Maiden and is provided in standard mesh sizes, in a rich velvety eggplant color, gathered in all the right places and laced up the front. The crown is an ideal topper for this fantastic outfit.

I do enjoy seeing the artistic talent that goes into jewelry making in SL as well as the clothing, so I couldn't resist sharing these stunning sparklers from the hunt. On the left you can see the gift from Zuri Rayna called Lotis Necklace in Boulder Green Onyx and Copper. It has a resize script built in, and is a true statement piece in the best sense. On the right, I am happily sharing the amazing Drakenshard Necklace from ~*WILLOW*~ in their Ladies size, you will be pleased to know there is a men's version as well so your dragon loving male avi friends can appreciate this gift as well. The black cord complements the pendant itself as well as being a great match for any outfit you wish to wear this with.

Hair note of the night: as you may have already heard, Magika is having a summer sale with all of their styles at 50% off, so hurry to get big savings! The sale runs until the end of the month I believe, and I recommend picking up the demos from the Marketplace so you can make your selections at home where it's not crowded or laggy. So far I chose this adorable Beans style, a big updo that includes a version with and one without a big bow. The color HUD for the hair also has a few (5 if memory serves me) colors for the bow so you can adjust it. The sale is only in the store, not on the marketplace though, so be sure to do your final shopping inworld.

The heat derailed some of my plans for the day, but I must admit that a cool shower never felt so good :) I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
