Fantasy Faire 2010 is a 9-sim event featuring everything “fantasy” that Second Life can possibly imagine. From Vampire, to Fairy, to the beautiful mermaids, there seems to be a bit of something for every imaginable, or unimaginable lifestyle. As fundraisers go, Fantasy Faire is the most fantastic!
I went there specifically to visit the Mer Market sim, which is sponsored by Opal Lei of Mer Betta. Yes, Opal is one of Spotlight’s most talented models, but she is also the creator of the most beautiful and original Mertails! Mer Betta recently announced its “Series 5 tails” will be exclusive to this event until April 23rd, when it ends. Opal also created a beautiful tail just for Fantasy Faire 2010.
In addition to Mertails, Mer Betta is focusing on clothing for mermaid lovers. Her Merkini and Bettakini sets are being released for the first time at Fantasy Faire 2010, and I had the pleasure of wearing one tonight.
I was looking for the perfect place to take a picture, which is not easy here. This sim is full of beautiful backdrops. I was not having any success getting close to the mermaid statues so I tried posing with the pelicans near the pond. After several attempts to balance on the rocks while focusing, I just could not seem to sit still. i just needed to get in a little closer… adjust the lighting… move the prims aournd…
I was adjusting a pose when suddenly I looked around and saw only darkness. Once the haze lifted, I realized I had fallen into the pond and it was deeper than I thought! It was a store in a sea garden with jellyfish and sea horses frolicking in undersea flowerbeds lit by the reflecting moonlight. I forgot all about the mermaid statues and did my posing right here.
I am wearing the Mer Betta Merkini with the sculpted sarong option. This outfit comes with several layer options as well to make it more versatile than the average bikini. The colors and prims are modifiable, which I love! And to make it even better, this outfit is part of Mer Betta’s Relay For Life series. This outfit is generously packaged with the Conch and Leather Bracelet and Armband set.
Please visit Fantasy Faire 2010 while you still can and be sure to have a look at Mer Betta.
I’ll see you there!
