October 10th will see the opening of a new yearly event, Mystic Realms Faire. Two sims full of inspired creators offering skins, hair, clothing, accessories, furnishings, etc. The fantasy/roleplay field is probably starting to become oversaturated, both in terms of events and in terms of releases, but I admit that I still find that a welcome change from when there was hardly anything of that kind to be had. Still, it does mean that I get a bit pickier (not to say I wasn’t a bit picky before) and that I look more and more for things that show that extra bit of creativity that sets them apart from the rest.
The Calion outfit (and the matching Calion boots) from the Muses is one of those ensembles with “extra everything”. I am actually not even wearing the whole outfit here - there’s clothing layer mail to cover the upper body. After I had put on everything else and was about to take off my mesh body, I looked it over and realised I liked the wildness of it like this. What I am wearing is the skirt, the corset, the straps, the collar, the pauldrons, the bracers and the cloak. The set comes with a HUD for the skirt and for the cloak, allowing you a choice of eight fabric colours, and you can buy the set in either black or brown leather.
Damselfly is a hair store that I have been aware of for a number of years, but which I had neglected to look closely at after mesh became the thing for hair. However, now they have definitely caught my attention with the Sancia hair. I think this is a really cool take on a windblown hair; I’ve seen several blown to just one side, but not tangled in front of the face like this. Perfect for this sort of fantasy look, I think.
The spear is from the much-missed Tekeli-li store—I so wish he was still creating new things, but his older stuff holds up really well—and I am wearing the Siobhan skin from Adam n Eve and a set of Mayfly’s mesh eyes.
