Well, it's that time of year again!! The 2017 Fantasy Faire is under way! There are 15 amazing sims to explore and shop this year. Of course there will also be much entertainment while the Faire goes on...including plays, particle shows, readings, contests, quests, hunts, and the list goes on. It truly is a feat...the fact all these sims are put up for only 10 magical days for our enjoyment, but mostly for the cause...Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society. Here is the link to the blog full of information about where and when everything is going on:

The Lost Unicorn Gallery is sim sponsor of The Spirit Pool sim this round. This sim is designed by Kayle Matzerath. Here is a description:
Since the beginning of time, The Spirit Pool has served as a resting place for weary adventurers and lingering souls that are not quite yet ready to cut their ties to the physical realm. Mermaids and other seafolk use the pool for gatherings and a constant flow of visitors keep it a popular place for trading.
The gallery artists are selling pictures again this year for the cause. ALL profits go to RFL. Each vendor (and there are approximately 40 or more vendors) is a different artist and each artist is selling anywhere from 1 to 3 pictures. I know we have so many people who visit the gallery and wonder if this or that picture is for sale....well here's your chance to purchase some fantastic fantasy artwork and know that your payment goes directly to fight cancer. All pictures come framed and size modifiable at a 400.00 price point. Be sure to stop by and see this fabulous display of magic! Here is the SLURL:

The amazingly talented Kiana Jarman will have all new artwork (most never seen) exhibited starting this Saturday! This show will really make you think as it's all about breaking free from those that criticize or put us down in a negative way...including bullying and verbal abuse. The pictures portray the concept in an imaginative way and still staying within our fantasy genre. We will have her opening event at 2pm and the exhibition will go on until May 4.
Musician Tallyesin will also be performing live for the event from 2 to 3pm! UK singer-songwriter and guitarist Tallyesin is one of SL's premier performing artists. His soothing yet powerful voice will be sure to give you a musical experience you won't forget. Tally covers original acoustic styles like Ed Sheeran and James Bay, to more unconventional acoustic music such as Richie Kotzen and Bastille.
Come enjoy this not to be missed event and exhibition!

Another round of Enchantment is under way as of yesterday! This round of Cinderella will go on until February 28. All I can say is WOW! The sim is amazing, including all the wonderful attributes of the story! Cinderella's castle, her home, the gardens, the forest, the pumpkins, and more pumpkins. You just need to make a point of seeing it. Many vendors are participating, including several new ones. Their items are just outstanding, so creative and imaginative!! Definitely a photography lover's dream. All this along with a major hunt, musical productions throughout the period, and last but definitely not least, The Lost Unicorn Gallery!
I think this is my favorite set up so far, plus we had many artists participate. Most sent in original, unposted works especially made for Enchantment. The gallery is set up in Cinderella's home at the landing point. Take a walk through the home and enjoy the pictures hanging all over the house :) This round of Enchantment (and the gallery) is featured in Spotlight Magazine. It's a great article and must read:

The gallery is also sponsoring another fun photo contest! More about that in the next post. This round is a definite must see!! Here is the carriage to get you there:
