Desert Dancer

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival opens today, so prepare to be frustrated once again as you try to win those must-have pieces. I can almost guarantee that the set from aisling that I am featuring here will be the cause of some of that frustration, because it is quite gorgeous. Fortunately, even the commons are utterly stunning and very wearable on their own.

I am also showing a bit of a house from Entity, which is a store I found just yesterday through Plurk and which I will definitely be keeping an eye on from now on.

One of the inspirations for this round of the Fantasy Gacha is Arabian Nights and the Dangara set from aisling certainly captures that flavour. I love the way they have done the skirt part in particular, draping it to give a sense of movement as well as a very sensual look.And as the skirt is fitted mesh, it works quite well to dance around in too.

There’s two sets of commons—veil & bra and panties & skirt—which each comes in 10 colours, for a total of 20 commons. The rares are also collected into two sets—tiara & earrings and collar & necklace—which should make hunting them down much less stressful than if they were separate.

All pieces come with a HUD for controlling metals, jewels, roses and strings, both in terms of texture as well as giving you the option to turn off some elements to make some pieces less elaborate. Additionally, all fabric pieces can be either sheer or opaque. This means that even with the commons you get a lot of options to customize this set.

The house from Entity is a small, Arabic inspired mesh house that only takes up 31 prims and amazingly enough costs only L$350. You can find it on the Marketplace or in their in-world store. The choice of textures feels very authentic and while baked shadows may not be ideal when you’re using shadows to photo, they can certainly be very nice if you don’t use higher-end graphics in SL. I must admit, I was very tempted by their Hagia Sophia inspired build as well, but that one is a little pricier so it won’t be an impulse purchase at least.

The first two poses are from Musa’s Fantasy sets and the final is included with the Asilah furniture (which now is sold by Artisan Fantasy).
