I am writing to you from a Bar, Café Pizzeria on an Island in Dalmacija, before Germany vs. Sweden starts (and now ongoing as am checking this post), will be sailing this week and home only the first days of July. Real Life has been wonderfully busy, including my new Painting laboratory/studio creation, and life, in general, was a game of catch up since I came back home in Croatia after Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia this winter. With Fantasy Faire taking a huge toll on my work rhythm and the issues Aetherea had added a constant week late on my schedule that became a month, finding myself constantly running behind, almost till now.
This post is to let you know about all the things I did and am participating in and trying to send a decent notice in the evening or weekends and failing, so you get a nice big bulk of information and updates in just one post. I wish to thank you for your support, enthusiasm and patronage and look forward on being around more this summer without deadlines until the 11 Anniversary preparations. Yours,
Events I missed to let you know about and upcoming We love Roleplay June / June 4 - 30
Legacy of Maul tattoo is back, with more variations to integrate also the skin line. If you already own the old format in only system layer please do know that a new update is coming to viewers that will allow you to use it again on mesh bodies without the need to repurchase the product. (New crop versions will not available for sale separately) - Also be aware that perfect seam integration of tattoo layers depends fully on the mesh body and head creations and seam accuracy, so be sure to try demos.

Dear Fallen Libertine,
Excuse my usual late notice, but we are indeed glad to invite you to this year Home and Garden Expo: no formal attire needed, just a good wallet to support our favourite charity and an open mind towards the depravity of soul and sense.
...but my dear fallen libertine, there are indeed things that you requested, more things that were lost and are back, filled with the scent of roses, and special things that just one can achieve.... and dear fallen libertine, there's even out of season things for those that are enamored with the fir and the bells.
So come visit the new garden and retreat, full of promises I never maintain and perhaps gifts you might be lucky to find. With the hope of a pleasant stay, Yours, Alia Baroque
With two days left to see more than half the Fairelands, with more than a month of non-stop work and little or no sleep, with amazing results and wonderful stolen moments and breaks to make me keep going, finally I am throwing the sponge and calling it a Faire.
I hoped to complete the special Petite Charm this weekend and make it available as a last but not least little symbol of the Faire, but I am simply not able to complete the project properly mostly to a drop in focus and energy after releasing Flow. This is why I am opening pre-orders to the Petite that will be available only the next 48 hours, and then retired till next Fantasy Faire.
Petite Charm Pre-order Informations:
- Both Female and Male pre-orders available
- Sale To Benefit RFL of SL and Fantasy Faire’s 2018 Fundraising Goal
- Pre-Order Available Until Fantasy Faire 2018 disappears into the Mysts on May, 8th.
- The Avatar will be available on Sale again during Fantasy Faire 2019 as Full Donation Item.
- Est. Release Date June, 1st 2018
Also do not forgot the special Petites available on sale as every year by tradition at Fantasy Faire, those will be unavailable again until Fantasy Faire 2019. About Aetherea Builds
Aetherea will re-appear during Second Life Birthday Celebration and also the Relay for Life Weekend track, where I plan to release the builds adapted for also residential use as well with the new designs showcased in July, available in Yang and Yin colour schemes. Aetherea Bench and additional Furniture will be available at the Libertine Showroom after Fantasy Faire.
A personal note
A warm thank you to all the Fallens, Fans, Fairelanders for the amazing support during the creative and work rollercoaster I found myself into this year. Your support and encouragement was pure fuel and helped me get to where I am today: exhausted sure, but very happy that the Faire was a wonderful success for everyone.
Often it's hard to explain the work behind the curtains, and sometimes it's better to keep it this way, Fairelanders shall absorb and enjoy the magic of a World creation that blossoms naturally, all the mechanics behind the stage shall not be seen as not to ruin the experience. It's why whatever happens, the Show must go on.
I am sorry we didn't have the chance to hang out together more as past years, and I am as always closing my Faire with a sense of melancholy I have every year... as preparing a wonderful dinner party where everyone is having a blast and you are stuck in the Kitchen having plates going out, preparing drinks and making sure all the guests are having a blast.
We've all been there, but we also know that at the end of the dinner, the cook will come out, dirty, dressed as crap, get a glass of wine and sit with everyone and have the best part of the whole experience, seeing everyone fed, drunk and smiling.
I hope you had amazing Fantasy Faire 2018 Dinner party and that all of our work was worth it,
I see you the next two days before the Mysts collapse,
I heard there might be a very big party on Monday....
