Long live the queen –

I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long. – Marie Antoinette

Enchantment Raven Queen

I think almost every little girl enjoys fairy tales, and perhaps wishes to be the heroine in her very own story.  Well, I always wanted to be the evil queen in certain stories, and the dreamy-eyed brave princess in others, though the ogre could have its own appeal.  Taking the bit of whimsy to heart, there is an event called “Enchantment” now being run very three months and put together by Voshe Paine.  The first round is inspired by the Grimm’s fairy tale of Snow White.

There is something about apples from the way Eve offered one to Adam to the use of it to poison Snow White in this classic tale of jealousy, coming of age, and woe.  Who truly was the fairest of them all?  I always found the story to be a tale involving the coming of age when the mother becomes the crone, and the maiden moves into her place.  The ravens in this outfit seem rather apt to me when I consider the imagery that comes to my mind.

This event will open to the public on November 1st, 2013 at 12 p.m. (noon), though there will be an earlier opening for those in the “Enchantment Update Group” at Amidnight on November 1st.   The scenery in the sim was enjoyable and suited the setting as well as the items were of a nice variety from various designers.   Not everything was to my taste or practical use, but I think most people will find something to enjoy.

What did I find there?

There was a lot of items ranging from a nice doll avatar by Coco based on Snow White to a variety of dresses by designers like Junbug, the Library, the Muses, and more.  I ended up getting a skin by Birdy, whose skins I really enjoy lately, inspired by the Snow White motif of the event.  I thought that it worked it rather well even with my ‘queen’ angle in the pictures.  The mesh outfit is a dress called “Raven Queen” by :{MV}:, which did require a little bit of adjustment on my part with the breasts, but after a little fine tuning, I got it to looking right.  “Raven Queen” came with a crown and a feather collar as well as the dress.   I did get a couple of other items, and I saw some more that may draw me back.

I will be sure to watch out for the apples on the journey back.

Fair opens at 12am SLT for group members & 12pm SLT for general public on November 1st 2013.
