(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: A Seer came from across the sea to visit a child, named  Ragnar 'Hairy Breeches,' who was born to simple farmers in the northern lands. This infant," the Seer intoned slowly, "is smiled upon by Odin. A great destiny awaits him."

The current round of Secret Affair has a Valhalla theme with lots of wonderful Viking themed items. This image was inspired by the awesome viking ship crib by Artisan Fantasy. Touch it, and will begin to rock. The set coming with animal skin rugs, crib, mobile, artwork, rocking chair, and trunk. The chair and truck contain animations. The set has two color themes: warm (shown above), and the lighter weathered theme. The other decor pieces, large animal rugs, plank chair, game table, and candelabra, are by Roawenwood. The plank chair comes several varieties, draped, decorated, and plain. The game is decoration only. On the floor by the crib is the Norse Lamp by Pure Poison. The two shields are gacha from FDD Stories, and the Axe is fully melee scripted by EX Weaponry. The house is the Sigrun's Lodge by Frogstar.  The Seer's mask and staff are by Lab737. The Hercules shirt is by Peqe and comes in blue, green, tan, and red. And necklace The Plastik. The necklace comes in cord or chain, and can change metal and gemstone colors. From past Fantasy Gacha's are the !gO Forest Fighter kilt, Floki pants, and Forest Elf cape and fur. The Outworlder boots are by Swagga. And the Cimmerian belt by Pucca Firecaster.  (NOTE: For people having trouble finding the event. once you land at Secret Affair on the ground level, click the Secret Affair sign on the winter island to teleport up to the event.)

Flights of Fancy

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Flights of fancy: An idea, narrative, suggestion, etc. which is extremely imaginative and which appears to be entirely unrealistic, untrue, or impractical; thinking which is very speculative.

I was inspired by several dynamic new releases. By AIR are these wonderful windblown cuffs. Touch them to bring up a hud to chose what pose for each ribbon you want. It comes in 3 colors, and you can edit the cuffs to best fit. From Cubic Cherry is the windblown harness Storm that is the gift for the Femboy Hunt. It's unrigged so you can edit it for best fit. From Tableau Vivant is the windblown Editorial hairs from the Arcade gacha. Also by Tableau Vivant is the LeeJae hair on sale at the Men's Department, and the new Slink Male body skin appliers. That's right, shown above is the brand new Slink Male Body! Slink has updated it's hands, feet, and bodies to accept Omega appliers. The shorts shown here are Omega appliers by Apricot Paw. The Souzou Eien blindfold is a Vivid Dreams Kink Hunt gift. The dreamers boots are also by Souzou Eien, I loved the imagaitive clouds texture for them. Speaking of Souzou Eien, it's the store's 6th anniversary sale is going on now to Sept 30th with 50% discount on all mainstore products for VIP members (its 50L to join), and 50L fatpack sale on all eyes, wounds, and makeup. For more details, go here. The butterflies wings by Swagga are huge and come in two colors. For my image I used two and made them smaller. (I imagine them saying, "Giddy Up Human! The Butterflies got places to go, flower to pollenate. Yaw! Yaw!" lol) The Goth1c0 back lacing for men works pretty well with the new Slink body. The sandles are by United Colors. The dreamer is wearing a nice black leather vest and pants by Bravura. It comes in stand sizes and fit mesh.

Revenge of the SeaWitch, 2

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: This is a special place. It belonged King Triton's youngest daughter. She was dear to me. To honor her memory I have kept this place exactly as it was. .... Her story began when an object from the world above fell at the entrance of her home. She was curious and wondered at it's purpose. Another object fell, and then another. Each object leading her further and further away. She realized they were falling from a ship above. She was forbidden to go to the surface, but it swam up to it anyway. She knew something was wrong. Her first sight at the surface was lightning streaking across an angry purple sky. She was terrified. The ship in the distance lurched wildly in the waves. A young man was swept overboard. His arms and legs were thrashing wildly. He was drowning. His panicked eyes locked on her, screaming at her to save him. A jolt raced up and down her spine. Her heart began race. He did not belong in her world, he could not breath in the water. He was dying. She had to help. She used all her strength to pull him up where he could breath air. She fought the waves until she came upon a sandy beach. A beautiful woman at the shoreline screamed and darted into the water towards them. The mermaid was scared of being beached on the land. She didn't belong there any more then young man belonged in the sea. She averted her eyes and handed the unconscious man to her and swam away as quickly as she could. 

Enchantment's rebirth was a great success! I look forward to seeing what fairy tale will be in the next round. The Little Mermaid theme items are moving into their home mainstores locations. The mermaids have been such fun to spend time with, and I would like to continue this story. I hope you enjoy the journey. Shown above is the aisling Calypso headress that comes with a hud to change the textures and colors. Also, by aisling are the Caly's baby eels. They have a hud to hide left or right and change colors. The fun Gills on the neck and headfins are by Soul. The headfins you can adjust to fit, and the gills are rigged. Both come with a hud to change the texture and have a second layer for tattoo effects. The skin by Fallen Gods Oceanica Still Eclipse comes with many appliers, including the ones I used for the The Mesh Project head and body. The Trident by CerberusXing comes in handheld and back staff versions. The mermaid eyes are by Antielle and come in several colors. The tentacle belt and arm wraps are by BluPrintz. It comes with a hud to control base color, highlights, and suction cup colors. The nipple rings are by Haus of Darcy. Right now if you are member of the H.O.D. VIP group, 50L to join, you get the a 150L gift certificate to celebrity the designer's birthday, as well as all the other group gifts. What a nice surprise! The corset for guys is by Schadenfreude. it comes with 3 black texture patterns. The gloves are by Swagga. They are non-rigged and mod so you tint and scale them for a good fit. The Beck hair by Tableau Vivant worked perfectly with the headress, and I used the TV hair base applier for the TMP head. From Aii is the cool eyeliner and mole applier for the TMP head. Most mermaid poses are for girls, so I made a more manly mer style pose for this image.

STORYLINE: She couldn't take her mind off the young man. His eyes haunted her. Would he be ok? She wanted to see him again. She had so many questions about him, and about the world on the surface. She couldn't help but wonder what life would be like with him as a husband. When she arrived back home the SeaWitch was waiting for her. "You look unhappy, my poor child. Surely it's not a problem I couldn't help you solve," she grinned like a shark who caught a fish.

Shown above are many awesome decor items that came together to create what feels like to me, a teenage mermaid's bedroom. I used in both images the Odyssey's temple and pearl lights by Fallen Gods from this year's Fantasy Faire. The MeadowWorks octopus, seaweed, and fish schools are also from a gacha at Fantasy Faire, but now you can play it at the mainstore. I love this gacha! Another great gacha is by DeviousMind, the seahorse wearable rider. I used it for room decor. The couch, armchair, and bed are by Zerkalo. It comes in pg or adult. The Ursula plushie on the couch is by Moon Amore, its animated. The seashells are by Plastik and have a color change hud. The paintings on the backwall and canvases on the ground are by Jian. They are inspiration for the whole color theme. Beautiful colors. From A Tattered Page's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea are the jellyfish by Spyralle, and the Dugong by The Muses. It's actually an avatar but I turned it into a sculpture. Overall this room is just stunning. Beautiful work from all the designers.

Revenge of the SeaWitch, 1

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Come my little guppies, gather around, and I will tell you a tale of how things came to be as they are now. Back when the Mer people had little knowledge of the Terrains, and the Terrains knew little of the Mer, a powerful Seawitch invoked the wrath of my predecessor, King Triton. He placed upon her a curse to limit her power. No longer could she conjure things for her own personal gain. No, she could only use magic in the service of others. But the crafty Seawitch was not so easily beaten. She plotted her revenge on his youngest daughter, and in the process hoped to slough off King's curse.

It's the summer of the Mer, and nowhere else will you find a stunning collection mermaid theme items then at the new round of Enchanted. I'm so happy to see this event has returned. The past stamp rallies limited the number of stores that could be in the event, but it has a sim once more and the rally has been replaced with a free hunt. How awesome is that? There is also live burlesque show in the theme of the event. (The lady lobster dinner was a hoot!) I love coming up with a new twist to the fairy tale, and I have worked up a new one for The Little Mermaid with some backstory on the Seawitch.

Shown above is the Underwater from the Editorial hair gacha by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade. (I love these posed hairstyles!) King Eric is wearing the Fallen Gods Oceanica Still Eclipse that comes with many appliers, including those for TheMeshProject. The Trident is by CerberusXing. It's mod so I give it a purple tint. I also tinted these awesome gloves by Swagga from the past Genre round. I looked in the mainstore for them, but it appears they are not there yet. The giant Manta Ray by Ravenghost is wearable, rideable, and it can also wander. The wings and tail are flexi. The tail I am wearing is by Plastik. (btw, for artistic reasons I made the tail more curved in the knee area for the image above.)  It comes in male and female, wet or dry texture, with many possible color choices. One interesting perk of this tail is the very deep "v" in the front. I'm sure you guys will love that. lol For modesty sake, I used the BluPrintz Tentacle Necklace as belt, sort of like a fishy loin cloth I guess. lol It worked out great, love that necklace with all the color hud options. It's mod so you can adjust it to fit where you want it. Around the shoulders are the Caly's Babies eels by aisling. They come with a hud to turn on left, or right eel, or wear both, and also add a 2nd color to their fins. The Eyes are an Enchantment Hunt prize by antielle. Several colors are included in the prize. The gargoyle ears are by Eclectica, and come with a hud to change to the colors and textures. The mole and eyeliner are appliers by Aii. The setting is by Death Row, the andolys Ariel's cozy spot. The seashells are by Plastik and come with hud with many color and texture options. If you know the original fairy tale, you know the Little Mermaid's tongue was cut off in order for her to be human. What luck The Horror! made a tongue necklace. It was gift from Origami that just ended. For fun I added the Lust nipple rings by Haus of Darcy. And lastly, over at Creator's Collection Box is another great Mermaid theme gift, the Merfolks Gift Poses by Kami Hitoe. There are 2 male mer tails and a male ao also. To get the gift, just join the CCB group to get the gift.  For more information on Enchantment, go to:
