New Fantasy Skin Released

I have been delving into the future...

A future where the boundaries of man and machine blur.  Out of this future dawn rises a sensual combination of circuitry and man-made flesh.

Talon Faire presents... Gynoid.






Please note the detailed circuitry on her plasti-metal skin. Ready to interface with non-AI as well as AI machines, there are various input node options. When equipped with optional input jacks, this gynoid, female variant of android, is ready to take on any task assigned.

Here she is on a small excursion thru InWorldz' Babylon.

Been a Bit..

Don't want you to think I have been neglecting TF, but I have been kinda busy in RL and in IW and doing and building and animating and !!!! You get the picture...

Meantime though - Talon Faire has a booth in the First Annual InWorldz Skin & Hair Fair!!

This is such an exciting event even though in small numbers. It shows there is a need for such an expo and even more than a need - enough merchants in IW to have a fair showing! It shows InWorldz is GROWING!

I can only imagine what next year will be like and look forward to expand my offerings which grant you, in the skin department have been rather limited up to now as I have been concentrating lately in animations.

So, with out further ado... Here is our exclusive offering to the Skin & Hair Fair:

Lady Blue


Lady Blue is a delicately shaded fantasy skin with subtle but noticeable "human" touches. She is not a N'avi skin, but would be fitting as a fae or a mermaid or even an alien visitor! The right Shape makes the Skin and is limited only by your imagination.  Come see Lady Blue and our other offerings today, at the First Annual Skin & Hair Fair ~ See YOU there!

Talon Faire booth is located at: Talon Faire @ The Skin & Hair Fair - (

Flailing




So I don’t usually do thoughts and personal stuff in here. I try to keep it strictly my catalogue- reminds me I have things to post! Yet there are times I really need to get thoughts written and looked at and considered. Sometimes the writing is cathartic on its own. Most of that ends up as letters to me or unsent emails or what have you. But hey, this is my blog right? I  don’t have to worry too much about anyone’s rules about what is OK to post and what isn’t – I can be my own critic thank you very much. So if I find this all too maudlin later I can come back and with a simple digital swipe it will be as if it never was.

Things are changing- and anyone who knows me knows how well I do with change- not! My beautiful sim, Animated Spirits, that until now I have happily shared with a good friend is about to be mine only. I understand his reasons of course but it changes things for me. For one thing, financially of course,  frankly, I cannot afford the sim and my lands in SL. So… given that I am barely in SL at all, some of that will need to be let go. I have a lot of land in SL though not a full region. Still it is group land and tied between two premium accounts so- it is a bit of money there and thus one of the premiums is going down. 

So, last night it was with sadness that Steely and I packed up our old home. Gathering all our possessions we moved to Misto Presto where Talon Faire is.  Up in my build platform we set up our new location and unpacked the house – argh our ‘couch’ seems to have gone MIA- damn movers! But at least the fish made it and the bat and of course--- the peacock! Now I still need to calculate prim usage and then I will need to abandon the land in the old place because no one is buying! Hell, there is a bunch of abandoned land where our home was so selling is out of the question. 

This brings me back to IW. So Marcel will collect his things and shut down Erotic Motions. I cannot begin to express my sadness about this but it is what he needs to do.

Another friend said to me this morning she is considering giving up her IW sim- it’s eating up money with little to no return. In this day and age we all have to consider where we spend our money.

Aside from that, it is raining. I like rain. But everything is so grey.

Homes & Residences Expo Opens Today!!


The First Annual Homes & Residences Expo is being put on by a group of hard working folks out to showcase some of the beauty and skill in InWorldz. The show opens today, August 31 @ the Inworldz Events A, B, C, and D regions. You can find them on your map easily.

Talon Faire is honored to have been invited early on and we have been slaving away to produce the best we can! Find us on Lot 27, by the way.

Presenting Kazumi - 和美 - Beautiful harmony, in Japanese. We feel this Japanese style home represents that balance so characteristic of the Land of the Rising Sun.



Note also, that while adhering to the simple lines so indicative of Japanese style, there are certain nods at Western styles as can be seen in some of the furnishings around the home. This house would be equally fitting at the foot of Mt. Fuji as it would be over looking the California coast.



Please come visit all the wonderful creations the Homes & Residence Expo has to offer and see Talon Faire's own humble submission. All items on display in the home that were created by Amaranthim Talon, are available for purchase, either at the home's Catalogue Room or at Talon Faire. We invite you to take an LM from the convenient giver at the door of the sales room.

Talon Faire wishes to express a special thanks Artfox Daviau for the lush foliage and John Mahogany for the fauna.

Intrepid explorer! Do you long to travel and explore our world.. but wish to be comfortable while doing so?

Dive 'neath the waters or soar over the highest peaks! Travel ready into the stratosphere! Traverse crossings with nary the blink of an eye!!

Talon Faire has the ideal solution - a well appointed bathysphere to carry you in absolute comfort to any destination. Ready at hand you will find the plans you laid down the night before as you contemplated your next invention. A brandy snifter, filled and waiting; a pipe and humidor should you require them, a dependable lamp, magnifying glass and long distance spy-glass!

All sit at the ready on your fine wood table next to your leather-bound journal. For your comfort, a richly padded and comfortable, winged back chair. Behind you, a bookcase filled with favorite tomes. Next to the bookcase are the controls that once set will direct your vehicle in any direction of your choosing with but finger tip control.

Your vehicle is constructed of the strongest yet most light weight transparent titanium alloy known to man. It is then polished to a high gloss and each sheet carefully riveted to withstand high pressures. The whole thing is then coated with brassinium oxide at very high temperatures ensuring a long lasting golden finish that rivals clear glass but is many times stronger than diamond.

This wearable vehicle is available now for your inspection. It is docked at Talon Faire, second floor, just off Thorne Designs - you can't miss it. Also displayed for your interest, the various components of the study in case your adventuring soul prefers the still land of your own abode.

This picture does not do it justice! Come see it today!

Temizuya

According to the Wikipedia,

"A chōzuya or temizuya (手水舎?) is a Shinto water ablution pavilion for a ceremonial purification rite known as temizu.

Water-filled basins are used by worshipers for washing their left hands, right hands, mouth and finally the handle of the water ladle to purify themselves before approaching the main Shinto shrine or shaden (Japanese: 社殿). This symbolic purification is normal before worship and all manned shrines have this facility, as well as many Buddhist temples and some new religious houses of worship. The temizuya is usually an open area where clear water fills one or various stone basins. Wooden dippers are usually available to worshipers."

If you have visited Talon Faire you have seen Kuan Yin's temple at the top of one of the mountains. At the foot stands the traditional temizuya to welcome guests and prepare them to be in Her presence. I have had a number of requests for the purchase of this traditional basin and have now put out a boxed set. It includes a custom gesture to assist you in your ablutions as well as a delicate bamboo wind chime to add atmosphere to your space.

As always, when ever possible, what you buy at Talon Faire is fully Mod/Copy.

Thank you.

New Poses and Play Things!

First for the romantic in all of us - Souls

A kiss, a caress, a mingling of spirit. You feel your loved one across a room- there is no mistake - your Souls have touched - show it...

The couple sits face to face and gently caress each others' faces, lost in their loving embrace.



But we are not through yet with this romantic interlude. Sometimes just quietly laying together is the sweetest commune of all.

Lay With Me


To lighten the mood here we have Fairy Flitting - She floats on a current of magic and dreams.


And what Fae would not just love this delicate, fresh leaf to perch on?


All animations available in Builder and Consumer Editions. Fairy Leaf is Copy/Mod. Find them all at Talon Faire's The Animation Station.

Talon Faire is Branching Out!

I have been fiddling with poses and animations a bit now and at the urgings and prodding of my dear friend Moon Satoshi I have decided to branch out official - so - without further ado, Talon Faire presents - The Animation Station!


First then we have two offerings~

Needful in every lady's boudoir, a Hair Brushing animation. She shakes her head a bit and runs one hand through it as the hair brush smooths her silken locks.



Next - Adored -
Feel the unspoken passion in this Couple Pose. His arm rest protectively across her shoulders and his hand caresses her back and hair. She rest reassured of her place in his world.

Both of these poses are available for Consumers (C/M no Trans) and for Builders (Full Perm).




And finally, a little fun splashy thing for you to play with - try on the side of a pool or lake. Available also for Consumers or Builders.

Alchemy County Fair

... For Japan Relief thru Virtual Helping Hands

http://www.virtualhelpinghands.org/sh/">Virtual Helping Hands

If you haven't heard about this terrific event going on to help the victims of the massive quakes and tsunamis in Japan, now is the time to get involved! Read that link above to the official Virtual Helping Hands site for all the pertinent info - then get your butt in gear and let's make this the most awesome success ever!

We need more folks involved in this - Right here from the States and also from the other side of the pond! And you Aussie peeps! We aren't forgetting you! Come help out - the world needs you!

It is for such a great cause and every one that helps makes a huge difference. I was hoping to ask all of you directly if you would like to get involved? You could set up a little vendor stand or participate in Role Play or just come enjoy the rides and make a donation or purchase some goody for your virtual life knowing all proceeds go directly to people that need YOUR help-

We need people that are perhaps happy to talk about it and tell their friends and make announcements and such- it could very well be that many in InWorldz haven't heard about this since not every one follows tweets or reads the forums. And folks in Europe may not even be aware of the Fair because as we all know Time Zones Suck!!

So please if you can help spread the word, it would be awesome- blog about it, tell people, come set a stand! Anything! Read that link so you see it is legit. Please share this with anyone you think may be interested in helping out. And by all means- come visit the fair- it really is awesome fun.

Alchemy is located here:

Please note, it says SecondLife, but this is an InWorldz event.

Thanks

This Week's Releases

Today we have some new bits of awesomeness to share...

On a pointless quest for medieval sort of furnishings that did not belong in a castle but more in the common folk sort of home I became inspired to make my own ~

Here then are the results ~



With this I am also releasing a Long Bow with a set of arrows and its quiver. These are purely decorative- we don' have physix yet - but come packed in two forms, one set is wearable- perfect for RP venues, the other is a great accent piece to hang on your walls - just as home in your castle or manor or tent!


And finally, just a little overhead shot of Talon Faire because I felt like it :)

More Changes and Addtions

So.. the build continues in Avination. I went tree crazy and bought some more trees and flowers. I may be pushing my budget here..

More trees and a peacock.. the peacock was financial overkill - /makes note to self- either make your own damn peacocks or live with out!

Aerial view but I hate the "wave". It is a freebie import- may have to forgo the wave as that is just not up to snuff.

I added a railing to the teahouse in the back so I would have a place for a Bits & Bobs kiss I like. I relocated the bar and expanded it to fit a couple of dances. I am in the process of building an off sim waterfall too.


The bar's new locale - still need a bar keep pose - will make today I hope and some additional sitting.

My Teahouse!


Animated in Avination needed a Teahouse!

The first tea house I built in SL took me 48 hours straight! It was my first experience with sleep deprivation :)

So - I have learned a thing or two about building since /me blushes - here is my progress on the one in Avination. It will be marketed in IW along with other things from this build.

My Current Project

Building in InWorldz is such a pleasure! I enjoy the yummy primminess and can go to town with details and extremes....

Now to re-educate myself and rein myself in...

My dearest friend and sim partner in IW, Marcel Flatley, is opening a branch of Erotic Motions in Avination. Knowing my passion building he is having me build his sim there.

Since Animated Spirits in IW is OURS and apparently he likes to indulge me, I got to do all of the building however I wanted to - and I suppose the style really is my own. Animated in IW looks very story-book and pastel and earthy. Sort of Maxfield Parish meets Thomas Kinkade!

So Marcel tends to a more sleek, modern look as his store building reflects and I am trying to stretch myself and build more as I believe is his style. I am sure he will happily disabuse me of any misconception I may have!

Here then are some images of Animated Spirits/Avination so far.

Just getting started (only things added besides Marcel's shop a few willows from the kind folks at TGIB and one of my ubiquitous waterfalls):

Photobucket

Here I built a little sitting park space. The free standing fountain and benches are mine as is the tree somewhat hard to distinguish in the back ground and the glass tree in the foreground- sort of Art in Public Places type thing. Off to one side is the same bridge from above but now retextured to fit the more modern look:

Photobucket

Here is another view of glass tree- it has an updated texture now and though cannot "see" it here, it plays a lovely tinkling glass sound when you are up close!

Photobucket

Today I started to build him a little bar - inspired by Kohkoh Baroque's awesome tiki bar!

Photobucket

And finally, here is the Before bridge - I will shoot an After later this evening.

Photobucket

And yes- I finally lost the noob clothes! How can I be expected to build with out a ballgown!!!

Free Standing Fountain


Elegant, modern and so soothing. The light tinkling sound of this fountain transports you to a quiet place. The cool lines and soft lights sooth you after a long day.

Completely Mod and as always Copy so it will fit into your space as easily as into your life.

Acquire it today @ Talon Faire! See YOU There!
