Fantasy Faire: A Traveller in Echtra


Echtra is a world of ice and snow, a story about a child-like lord of winter missing his summer sister, and so it seems appropriate that the outfit I put together is the very embodiment of spring. Swirling around my bright spring look is a set of sakura petals from NAMINOKE (Echtra), which are also a pose-giver via a HUD - though I didn't make use of the poses here. The wings, with their pale flowers and long golden cloths tied around the veins, are also from NAMINOKE (Echtra) and I really adore them - from how naturally the branches seem to fall and how pretty the flowers are. The combo of wings and petals is just fun, especially when different poses seem to bring them into relationship with each other - as you can see. Trust that you will see these again in the future - these are absolutely a delight!


My outfit, is a textured, blossomy confection of bright teal from BlueMoon enterprise (Echtra). It's a two parter - the top and skirt are separate pieces and so can be mixed and matched between the four different colors for sale. Each also comes with a complementary crown and belt - not shown there - which are prim instead of rigged and so can be resized and fitted. The dress pieces are in the standard sizes, though the skirt glosses over several, and they come with separate invislayers so you can mix and match elsewhere as well. I love the style - high necked in a fitted style over a keyhold neckline. It's not lined, but with ankle length skirts that tends to not be such an issue and there's a slight rollover on the top. The combo of style and brightness makes it an incredibly fun look, and perfect for all the balls you could want in a winter-plagued world.

Miss VIRTUAL DIVA 2016 Casting

You should have warned me
You were blood red
Oh you’re blood red baby
It came without warning
Now I’m wounded
You’re so ruthless darling
Once all the energy
Reversed the chemistry
Your blood it mixed with all the chemicals in your head
Now all you’re seeing is
Blood red

First of all, I want to say, thank you to Marpil Grafenwalder for inviting me to be a blogger for Virtual Diva!

And, I also decided to give the Miss Virtual Diva search a try. I know I said I wouldn’t do any more competitions for a while, but this one is short and sweet, so why not:)

And this is my competition entry and also my first blog for Virtual Diva.

I’m wearing the new “Breath Couture Suit” in Carmin along the “Club Jewelry Set” in Onyx sans the necklace that I will properly show in another post.

Echtra: Entrance

["The Gloom of Echtra"]
The Rickety Weasels and their Guardians of the Elemental stones are returning to the fair in the gloom ridden town of Echtra. The land has been eclipsed in a grey season-less gloom and the parents have disappeared with that same curse. The Children must search the realm for clues to their plight and restore time back to their realm.

Echtra: Tamed Fire

Other Stores on Sim:
 Echtra: Dragon in the Depths

The road falls to pieces almost as soon as the boarder into Echtra is crossed, sinking into icy mud that shines in the dim light. It's treacherous ground, slippery and sharp all at once, and shining gold footprints stand out brightly against all of the gloom. The first of the residents, a hedgehog that seems to be too small to be believed, stands and greets the few who sneak across this boarder into the icy air, directing each one into a wall of ice itself. It's a rough-carved entrance, the floor offering texture to walk on only where previous feet have slid and caught. The pathway curves down with equally slick walls offering no safe purchase until the full depths are achieved, when they grow mottled from the lack of hands gripping with fear.  Ahead in the ice, a head large enough to swallow anyone who can fit in this passage is almost completely concealed under layers of frozen water, only the purity of that liquid allowing anything beyond the first few feet to be seen.

The pathway upward is equally challenging; only the last twenty feet offer wooden steps as an aid.

Echtra: Drapery

In contrast, the mead hall is full of suffocating warmth. Enormous braziers and fireplaces line the middle of the room, sending heat off in waves around them through air thick with smock and the scent of roasting meat. A large cauldron froths over the center of the fire's length, whole potatoes joining the melange of meats and root vegetables cooking down for the evening meal. On the long tables are bowls of apples still fresh from cold storage available for travellers to pick up a quick snack while waiting for the main meal to cook and the village to assemble for the evening meal. The rest of that village lies beyond, soaking under dim and dismal rain while the ground sucks stones into it's viscous depths. Smaller halls thatched with branches hug the side of the hill downward, wetly hanging cloths draped over peaked roofs. Large dormer windows are open to the weather, letting out smoke and letting in air.

Echtra: Smithy

Open flames gutter in the driving rain, somehow remaining alight as they warm the pock-marked ground in narrow ovals. Beside the hedgehogs, their fut proof against the miserable weather, people don't linger in the harsh weather; instead they rush from spot to spot, wrapped in wool that never seems to be able to dry. Animals cluck and baa with indifference to the conditions, feathers and fur working their magic; those who break free of their fencing drift down the hill like stones, seeking out the faint green of grass clinging to life around the gate. The weather is even harsher here, wind funneled into a punishing blast, and the flat, unprotected moorland is wiped bare of almost everything except for stone monuments to the past, resistant even to winter storms. It's only across the river, across the bridge, where a hint of peace from the dank misery of winter can be found - a god weeping within the memory of his lost sister.
