The Fantasy Faire is winding down tomorrow so if you have not flown in and checked out what all the fluttering is about…. you need to do it soon! Tonight at 5PM slt the Silent Auction ends. The Silent Auction has exclusive items that were created for the event and even one of a kind items! You can check out the items up for auction here.

This years Fantasy Faire has been such a positive event; I’ve been introduced to the amazing creations of the muses (and I am smitten,) I’ve added 16 new friends, donated to a wonderful cause, have an inventory of mystical wealth and treasures, danced with goblins, laughed with drows, played with fairies, kissed a knight in shining armor…. and a frog, and I have marveled at the stunning sims and designs from the talented vendors. Life is good.

Rejuvenate

After a long day of battling the evil lag creatures in the Fairelands, Gopu and I headed to the sim of our immortal ally and Fallen God to rejuvenate our weary warrior souls. With the assistance of the F*cking Ninjas we recouped as we counted our linden losses… not too bad! Our Fantasy Faire bounty is growing and our quest to greatly reward Relay For Life has paid off handsomely…. now we seek the Key of Hope! Wont you join us?

Kneel Before Your Lady

April 21, 2013 at 8:17 pm (Fantasy Faire, Zodiac Event) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Another fun filled day of fantasy and frolic courtesy of the Fantasy Faire! After a bit of shopping Gopu and I ventured to The Looking Glass and marveled at the extreme attention to detail the artists employed when designing every square inch of this beautiful sim. The day before we were able to rezz pose balls, but unfortunately that option was turned off today much to my dismay, so we ventured to Carnivale and put her ruins to good use.
My Knight in Shinning Armor

The dress I am wearing by the muses is stunning, absolutely stunning. I actually happened upon it quite by accident as I originally purchased another dress by the muses that never arrived. The detailed textures and the fabrics are impeccable. Fingers crossed that the other dress arrives soon, I am dying to get it on now!
Kneel Before Your Lady

It wouldn’t be a Fantasy Faire day without F*cking Ninjas! This pose, For my Damsel, comes with the sword and was exclusively created for Fantasy Faire. The sword lays across your knight in shining armor’s shoulder as he kneels before his one true lady. *smitten*. Stay tuned as Gopu and I bring out the ninja magic for the next eight days. Currently Gopu wants to slay a Bambi in the next shoot…..shudders…. so there is no telling what is in store!

Conjure the Magic! Finish the Fight!

Welcome to the Jungle

April 20, 2013 at 7:00 pm (Fantasy Faire, Second Life Events) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

 

The 2013 Fantasy Faire has officially kicked off and there is no shortage of fantasy fashions, items, poses, accessories and landscapes on the grid today! This unbelievable effort of combined talents has given us not one, but 10 virtual showrooms to gather the coolest, most up-to-date fantasy creations we can get our mystical hands on… all the while supporting the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer!

This event really touches my heart. I lost my beautiful brother, David, to lung cancer. I cannot even begin to describe how this horrible disease changed my life, but I can tell you that I feel as though part of my soul was ripped out the day David died. So I am posting my Fantasy Faire images in honor of my brother David. My smile. My heart. And my soul. Namaste. They may not have been created by the most talented photographer in Second Life…. but they have been created with a love so strong and pure…. they could only send out waves of positive energy to those who need it most.

Conjure the Magic! Finish the Fight!

 

Welcome to the Jungle

I am kicking off the event with one of the Feature Creators of Fantasy Faire, F*cking Ninjas! These mad girls have been burning the midnight oil for the last few weeks conjuring up exclusive poses for this event and I can tell you without hesitation they are phenomenal! The above pose, Welcome to the Jungle, comes with the spear prop and is just one of the many exclusive poses I plan to share this week.

So head over to Ravenshard, jump on the book shelves and check out their Ninja skills!
Naamah's Kiss

The Facial Piercings in the above image are from designer Pheobe. The piercings are available until Suday at Acid Lily Gallery for 50L!!! The detail on the piercings is incredible and the hud not only lets you choose metals and gems but also allows you to add shadows for a more realistic look! They rock!

Crumpled

Duchess laid motionless on the edge of the surf following a brutal marathon swim that ended at the land of Loki. She felt a presence but was too washed-out to care and again the world went dark.

You Found Me

Gentle arms encircled her body and she was slowly lifted out of the water. A soothing voice entranced her and she awoke in the arms of her hero.

To Be Continued…

The poses in the above story use the first set in a series of poses by elephante poses from the new Storybook Pose Collection. There will be 10 items total per chapter and the above pose, You Found Me, is part of Chapter One and is currently on sale at the Pre-Release event this round! I can’t wait to see where and how my story unfolds! Stay Tuned!

The Intoxicated Pirates of the Not So Caribbean

March 2, 2013 at 5:46 pm (Blogger Challenge, iheartslFeed, SecondLife Music & Fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Pirate Duchess

The vast ocean called and we hit the sea and headed off to the place where our hearts longed to be… white sand, rum and music filled breezes. Intoxicating! Jacques Cousteau was dead on when he said, “the sea…. once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Ah the pirates life for me!

Railing Closer

A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.

~ Honore de Balzac ~

On a recent trip to Cog & Grog Freebies, an entire shop filled with all the pirate loot you could fathom, I got a little carried away and ended up with a fleet of the most beautiful pirate ships! Cog and Grog shares all the creations used for the construction of Freeport Township of Flotsam at this tiny shop. The items are full perm, free and fun! Thanks Aley, Arcadia and Briony! If you happen to plunder their wares be sure to give some love to the tip jar!

gopu Duchess PirateWheel

My pirate treasures became my inspiration for the “50 Shades of Sexy” challenge this week with a very appropriate theme of “Intoxicate Me.” Not all treasure is silver and gold….. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!!

Titanic

Not just the Spanish Main, love. The entire ocean. The entire wo’ld. Wherever we want to go, we’ll go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails,

that’s what a ship needs but what a ship is… what it is… is freedom. 

~ Capt. Gopu Aulder ~

Blacklace’s new lingerie set, Rousing, was the perfect attire for my intoxicatingly sexy self. The chocolate color gave a sense of time that I offset with an adorable vintage necklace from League that actually works! In keeping with my Cog & Grog mindset I chose a pair of Victorian granny heeled shoes from Grim Bros. (Any excuse to shop at Grim is a good excuse!) And topping it all off is hair by D!va that is absolutely perfect in every way (and free!!! wth!) Marisa is quickly becoming one of my favorite SL hair designers of all times!

Arrr Mateys! Until we meet again!!! Happy Shopping!

Wonderland

February 24, 2013 at 11:12 pm (iheartslFeed, SecondLife Music & Fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

No time to say hello, good-bye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late

Gopu and I headed off last night to Two Moon Paradise’s Alice Venue to catch the smooth tunes of one of our favorite live performers, Maxmillion Kleene! In keeping with the theme of the evening we dressed in our most mellowy mushroomesque Wonderland attire. I was the ever adorable Alice and Gopu wore the very fitting Mad Hatter role. First I want to say I adore this LeLutka hair! The hair flows so beautifully in-world and it barely had to be edited for the photos…if at all! You can wear the hair with or without the ribbon and the ribbon is equipped with a spiffy color changer! I will definitely wear this hair again and again…. on Alice-days and on not-so-Alice days!  Also, the Alice dress by Deviance has to be one of the nicest Wonderland outfits on the grid! If you are looking for an Alice in Wonderland outfit, look no further…. my leg work was exhausting but the result was sublime!

Alice on the Mushroom

“It was much pleasanter at home,” thought poor Alice, “when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.

I almost wish I hadn’t gone down the rabbit-hole–and yet–and yet–…” 

Since we had some time before the show we went to two older SIMS that are both at the top of our list of favs and rode (well… walked b/c we couldn’t get the gondola to rez! LOL!) the Alice in Wonderland Dark Ride (Black Pearl Beach) and reminisced at Steelhead Nevermoor.

Cheshire Cat

But I don’t want to go among mad people,” I remarked.

“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the giant Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad. Gopu’s mad.”

“How do you know we’re mad?” I asked.
“You must be,” said the Cat as he reached down and swatted Gopu, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Alice and Mad Mushrooms

 Everything’s got moral. If only you can find it.
-Duchess”

(Also of note. The items for sale at Two Moon Paradise’s Alice Venue have nothing to do with Gopu and neither Gopu nor I are affiliated in any way with Bampu Legacies, despite what the crazy old lady has written on her profile and blog. She has been asked repeatedly to remove his name as her business partner, but she refuses. We are not real life friends with this woman and never have been, nor are we current friends. Please do not purchase these items under the false pretense that they are our creations, they are not.  Thanks!)

Love Potion Number 9.9

February 17, 2013 at 8:20 am (Holiday Posts, Love Potion No. 9.9, Second Life Hunts) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Keeper of the Loch by Duchess Flux
Keeper of the Loch, a photo by Duchess Flux on Flickr.

The MadPea Love Potion No. 9.9 hunt followed a fantasy theme that I adored! This time around the event was not as taxing on the brain and we found ourselves playing a lot along the way. Above I am playing the Keeper of the Sacred MadPea Loch… in the words of Shakespeare….

“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

 

MadPea Fairies
“Now a soft kiss — Aye, by that kiss, I vow an endless bliss.” – John Keats

 Take some time to stop and smell the roses and peer behind places for some really creative and fun interactive items. The hunt ends in March so get your hud on! Check out MadPea Productions on Facebook as well.

Fae Library

“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gopu patiently waits as I alphabetize the library and stack books according to my fae-ncy.

Cupid Remains

“Life is a flower of which love is the honey.” – Victor Hugo

Cupid appeared to meet an untimely death and appears in the background shot with arrows….. Since I refuse to let love die….. this is “Cupid Rising.”

Cupid Rising

“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days – three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” – John Keats

There is plenty of magical scenery so get your groove on and your snapshot thingy loaded! Be sure to share your images with MadPea!
