It is a truth universally acknowledged, that men & women in possession of intellect & curiosity have always been fascinated by the fantastic.
Weather it's fairies, elves, and mermaids or vampires, demons and evil royals, the fantastic, is a genre that flourished from the ancient times and continuous till today. Starting from the Gods & Goddesses of Ancient Greece, moving to the gothic literature of Mary Shelley, Ann Radcliffe & Bram Stoker & finally thinking of contemporary popular culture like Harry Potter, The Lord of The Rings, Once Upon A Time & Game of Thrones, the fantastic & the supernatural intrigue and please the public.
Second Life, as a game of virtual reality, can also recreate a world of elven forests, gothic battlefields, & fairy-tale castles. There are numerous locations based on these and many more supernatural & mythological themes.
As I said previously in my blog, this month, there are two fantasy-themed events going on: Mystic Realms Faire & Tales of Fantasy: Woodland Creatures. These fairs offer an opportunity for creators to let their imagination inspire them and for the customers to admire their stunning designs.
For this post I picked up a variety of items from both events to create a fantasy look.
