I Am Your Mermaid

Wasabipillsmirrorsenigma

On The Tides Sim at The Fantasy Faire 2012 you will find [:TCR:] & {:ME:] where you can find these amazing Mirror’s Enigma Kaldreia Dusky Skins.  These are a donation item, benefiting The American Cancer Society and you can donate a minimum of 300L for the skin packs.  I am wearing the blue, but they also have available as donation items black and fire as well in both male and female varieties.

The female skin packs come with five different makeup options as shown in the top photo and the four below, as well as hairbase and cleavage options.  Two pairs of eyes were also included in the pack and the shape worn.  I don’t generally change my shape for blog posts, but the way this shape placed the eyebrows making her appear a little “badass” was brilliant, so their shape it was!

Wasabi Pills is also located on The Tides Sim at The Fantasy Faire 2012 and they have some fantastic donation items for both men and women.  The Hawk Rigged Mesh Hair shown above and the Hawk2 Rigged Mesh Hair shown below can be purchased with a minimum donation of 200L in both mens and women’s sizes.  The packs include three colours:  Azure, Pink & Violet.  The matching hairbases are also included.

There are no direct TPs to stores on the sims, however you can find an easy to use map to The Tides shops at this link.

Under a low bent half moon
I must have been singing for you”

Have you visited the Fantasy Faire 2012yet?  This mystical fair  starts today, Saturday April 21st, and runs until Sunday April 29th.  Thousands of Second Life residents and designers rally together to help support The American Cancer Society.  There are many activities and events going on such as live music concerts, auctions, jail and bail and of course shopping in the merchant shops of the creators participating in event spread out over nine AMAZING looking sims.

See you Under The Sea!

One of my favourite things to do in SL is to throw on some sparkly fins and explore under the sea.  You’d be surprised to find almost as much happens under the water as it does on land in Second Life!  While you can spend a ton of lindens putting together mermaid costumes, you can also come up with some very nice inexpensive aquatic costumes as well.  The first thing you will need is a mermaid AO so that your legs stay together when you move around.  You can find a free basic Mer AO at Pacific Sunrise.  You can of course purchase mermaid AOs with more options and swim aids to help you move around in the water, but to get started a basic mermaid AO is just fine.

The skin I have chosen to wear in this post is called Skintimate 75L Gift Exclusive and you can find it at the 75L Skin Store as a free group gift, along with a couple other free gift skins.  The group is currently free to join.

Pacific Sunrise Mermaid Tails

Pacific Sunrise has some wonderful mermaid tails available to you for free.. if you have a bit of time to spare. Though I usually call them “mermaid” tails out of habit, these tails are appropriate for mermen too.

pacificsrmer1

The Lionfish tail is available as a camp prize in several colours, as is the Mystique tail shown below. These tails can be yours for three hours of your time.

pacificmermaid2

The Mystique tail, shown above, has several coverage options; from a traditional type tail, to more human skin showing along the sides of the tail.

Clownfish Mermaid Tail from Pacific Sunrise

The Clownfish Tail is a prize from the Treasure Hunt at Pacific Sunrise. This is a cute hunt in which you get a HUD and register, then go around collecting gems for your treasure chest. Be careful though, some of the gems are faulty, and will explode, causing you to lose points.

After you collect enough points (at least 1000), go to the chest vendor and collect your prize! There are several prize options available.

Hair, skin, and hat are not included with the mermaid tails. Pacific Sunrise has a free mermaid AO available in the shop.

Grendel’s Children meets Pacific Sunrise (sort of)

Grendel’s Children has the largest collection of non-human avatars in Second Life.. and most of them are available for a single L$.

I love dropping in to the aquatic’s area from time-to-time (shoot, I love all of Grendel’s Children.. even the bug thingies!) just to look. The last time Istopped there, I bought not one.. but three full avatars at only 1L$ each. I know, I know.. I splurged and shelled out a whole 3L$.

jellyfishavatar

The jellyfish avatar is a full avatar. It includes the ghostly skin you see, and an AO that helps promote the idea that you are a jellyfish. I altered the shape a bit (yes! it’s mod!) because.. at least in my mind’s eye.. merjellies would be rather blob-like on top.. not long and lithe.

Next up was the deep sea siren.

deepsea

This is a beautiful full avatar. Out of all the merfolks I see in SL, the ones at Grendel’s Children and Tekili-li are the most mer-like. These are truly a people adapted to living fully in the water. This siren avatar includes a wonderful swimming animation that is worth the 1L$ all by itself.

The third mer avatar I purchased isn’t ready yet.

Tune in later to see what I mean.

Pacific Sunrise is a mer-shop filled with mer goodies. And now you can camp for several top-quality mer avatars and mer-poses. I’ve been wanting to get the Ursula one for some time and when i saw it in the camping chair.. woot! /me joy jumped.

ursula

I adapted my own shape, and used a different hair for this picture because I wanted a younger version of Ursula for another blog post. The hair and shape that come with the full avatar is all-out Ursula, right down to her full cheeked, squared-off jaw.. it’s an excellent interpretation of the villainess.. and the tentacles are to die for.
