09:27 pm - Fairy Fashions number 4.
I have two brand new outfits (and one classic) to show any faeries. This time though, we're looking more towards the expensive end of town.

First of all, Trap have released a new series of skins called "Haunted" and supposedly they are only going to be available for the month of October - which in part explains the very high price of $1800L per skin. I was very lucky to have a wonderful and generous friend give it to me as a gift.

In the first picture I have combined it with Woodland Fairy wings from Seven's Selections and the "Festival Ribbons" set which was free last month from Santum Hair (and I believe is still available as a group gift this month). My hair is from Analog Dog.

Please click on the pictures twice to enlarge them.




Another view of the same skin and hair but with Seven's Selections' Ragged Fairy wings and the Halloween Silks I got from the Solange lucky chair. Silks can be an option for Fairies *if* you pick the right ones.





And now for something completely different and, to me, completely unique. Eshi Otawara's Hibiscus. Eshi sells this as a full dress with several dress options to match the incredible Hibiscus flower that attaches to your ankles.

I decided not wear the dress but to match the flower to a bright pink and purple skin, Summer Seale's tiny Space Silk outfit (there isn't much silk there) and the glowy animated hair from Boon (although lately I have been wearing the yellow version rather than the more purpuly one I used for this picture). This is the first outfit I have ever seen that looked better without wings!




The spots you see aren't particles, they are textures on flexi prims and the way the whole outfit moves and sways is just fantastic.




The Hibiscus is available from Eshi's store "Chambre du Chocolat" for $1,000L (and I have to thank Eshi for giving it to me as a gift before I knew it existed). "I want to see a faerie in it!"


The final outfit is a classic. Chaospire's "Wood Nymph" - the first outfit that I ever saved and saved to buy. At $800L it's far from cheap but it's a classic and is very well made - far better than most new faerie outfits. If you only had to buy one faerie outfit - this would be my recommendation to you.

I took this picture of Charlanna's first outing as a faerie just the other day.




What I also like is how well it goes with coloured skins. Both green and dark brown skins work to give this a different look.




I call this my feral fae look.

But kedawen, that's why I post these - so you don't need to spend much time and energy - you can just go straight to the right places to get just what you need! :)

Seriously - please let me know if I can help you get something together.

That is very true, I would be lost without your guidance in these posts! You do a great job pointing out the very best.

I guess I really didn't word it very well in my previous comment. The past few months I haven't much time to be in SL at ALL. So there wasn't any extra time to go shopping. :) I have a bit more time now, and I just need to commit to a good faerie shopping trip!!

I will probably say hi the next time I'm inworld and show you what I've got so far. Thanks for all the help.

Now, did I imagine that you posted a bunch of links to more faerie stuff?? I thought it was a recent post... Maybe I'm just being crazy. Could be. :D

I wanted to ask if you'd post or send me a list of good places to take pictures as a faerie. I know a couple, and you've mentioned a couple, but a list would be awesome to have! Thank you. :D

Sure!

I'm not inworld so I can't offer you SLURLs but you should be able to find these easily. Make sure you experiment with lots of different presets and time of day settings.

Assuming you are looking for foresty type settings:

Chakryn Forest.

Botanical in Straylight (Straylight for short)

The Fairy Crossing This the name of both the group and the first sim of a group of nine joined sims. There are many different environments from elven villages to deep forests so tp in to the FC sim and then fly around until you see something you like. There is also a pumpkin hunt on there at the moment too.

Metatheria.

Carmarthenshire (2 sims)

Summer (Summer Seale's new sim - there is a link in her picks)

Templum Obscurum. (You need to do some serious exploring if you go there the sims there are like onions - layers and layers of wonder.

La Reve.

The Elven Lands of the Elf Circle community - ElvenGlen is the entry sim. This is some 50+ joined sims including the Fairy Crossing sims and the Isle of Wyrms sims and they contain many lovely places. You have to spend a lot of time exploring them but I remember that some of the northern sims (open your map)
are heavily forested and contain hundreds of lovely locations.

You can also scan some flickr group for good locations - like this group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/732221@N21/pool/


Finally I do NOT recommend that you bother with Avilion - apart from being very laggy, they've become very unfriendly and are ruled (terrorised?) by zealous fashion police who will not allow the outfit you posted in there.
