Unicorns and Full Moons

~ Enchantment~ The Last Unicorn February 13-29
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Nymphai/84/133/3789
Enchantment offers lots of wonderful things for those of us who can never get enough unicorns and glitter in our lives.
There is a display of pictures from the Last Unicorn Gallery and a unicorn photo contest which you are invited to enter. Contest pictures must be received by Feb 27. Click the poster near the Gallery display for more information about the photo contest.

+Aii+ has Some beautiful hair and horns available for all unicorn lovers. The Amalthea mesh hair is very long, has huds for a variety of colors and comes in different versions that allow you to wear a fuller skirt or to sit with the hair in a  natural position. I'm also modeling the golden unicorn horn. Both hair and horns come in very reasonably priced fat packs @ the Enchanted event.
Gown ~ Les Encantades gown- A mon seul desir Earth also available @ the Enchanted event.




Hentai Fair 
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Avari%20Cove/168/130/21
For those of you who may not be familiar, Hentai is a form of Japanese manga or anime featuring provocative sexual acts. That wasn't its original meaning, but that's what it has come to mean in the west. The Hentai Fair is pretty PG by SL standards. The merchandise is mostly kawaii except for a few posters and other items.
Opening February 16, it will be packed the first few days but should be accessible by the weekend.

+Aii+ is offering some very attractive sexy aprons in a variety of colors, designed to spice up things in the kitchen.  The aprons actually cover everything, but don't leave much to the imagination.

I went with the traditional black and white maid's apron, but could have done pink, red, blue, lavender ...
The aprons are available for Belleza Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP bodies as well as classic system bods like mine.

Hair ~ Truth Louisa black and white
Head and skin ~ Genesis Makena 2.0 Albino

This is not your mother's Valentine's Day. This event is mostly for those of us who lean toward the Gothic and for the broken-hearted lovers who have sworn off love forever... or until the next guy comes along. Cute stuff for the Anti-Valentine's crowd.

For your Gacha addiction

A couple of noteworthy Gacha events this week...

The Gacha Garden http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Gacha%20Garden/127/151/22  opened February 1 and by the 3rd or so, you should actually be able to get in! Lots of cute stuff here so be prepared!
See my entry of January 25 for pictures of +Aii's+ offerings of  Blight infection and talismans for the Gacha Garden

Objet D'Amour http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Behold/125/124/1482 February 4-15.
Despite the cute white picket fences and the heart shaped balloons, this is gacha event will appeal more to those who like BDSM than those who like conversation hearts and bobbie socks.
There are a few gauchas with hair and jewelry, but most of the things are a tad bent or positively kinky.

Hair ~ Alice Project Strawberry Rainbow
Outfit ~ ! !gO! Agata sweater and skirt


The Fantasy Gacha Carnival  will be February 7- March 7. This round's theme is Star Wars vs Game of Thrones.  As usual, it will be packed and access the first few days will be difficult, so be patient. http://thefantasygachacar.wix.com/fgcsl


+Aii+ offers some truly wonderful items for this one. The Dragon Queen set is beyond beautiful.
I like just about everything that Princess Aii makes and I love the textures on the horns, tail and jewelry for this set. The horns are huge, as befits a Queen, and I'm a small avi, but they didn't seem unwieldy.
The floaty shawls are beautiful and are scripted to keep your arms inside the shawl regardless of your AO. Available in both light and dark.
If you like dragons, don't miss these!



Horns [I'm wearing two separate sets], Tail [not visible in the pics- matches the horns], Shawl, Choker and Eyes available from the +Aii+ Dragon Queen gacha @ Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

Pictures taken in the beautiful wintery Magick sim. I was glad dragon queens have internal fires because it was covered in snow and that ice dragon was determined to freeze me! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Magick/21/175/59
