Avalon & Ariel

Well, I’m a naughty blogger, I am.  I meant to blog these… well, never mind how long ago it was that I’d meant to blog these.  :p

While Violaine Villota of Fancy Fairy is known for her delicate, beautiful fairy wings (both in SL and in RL!) and magical fantasy apparel, she also has really cute hand drawn skins.  Her Avalon skins have pleasingly smooth complexions and tones, and feature makeups that come with optional tribal markings to cater to the fantasy market.

The skins are sold with Copy/Modify permissions, and the eyebrows are tintable. If you get the fatpack, you’re treated to the Sunset and Ruby makeups that aren’t available as singles.  (While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up the Dia De Los Muertos skin pack she has up for a mere 50L.  I realize it’s not exactly that time of year, but these are fab and you should have these!)

I’m wearing the Ariel gowns in these pictures, from Kouse’s Sanctum.  The gowns are featured in the following colors, in this order:  aurora, raindrops, flora, ice, and dusk.

My favorite part of the Ariel gown is hands down the lush, full flexi skirt that swishes and flares with your every movement. I’m especially partial to the colors on the raindrop and aurora versions of the gown. The gown features sculpted gold roses, which also adorn the included armbands and the prims that adorn the bodice/neckline area.

If you’re a fantasy roleplayer or if you just plain love flitting about the grid in gowns, pay a visit to Fancy Fairy and Kouse’s Sanctum to see these and more.  🙂

i heart fancy fairy

Violaine Villota of Fancy Fairy released three new Dia De Los Muertos skins and a Fae Witch costume.

It was love at first sight when I saw them.  ❤

The outfit came with everything you see here except for the hair, eyes, and prim lashes.  (Hair is from my store, mela’s;, eyes are from Nomine; lashes are from Laqroki.)

Go visit Fancy Fairy, where the skins are either 25L for one or 3 for 50L (yes, really!) and the costume is 100L.
