Enchantment’s Kitsune Tales Begins Today! Enter the Photo Contest!

Snapshot_011 (1)

Kitsune are legendary yokai (spirits/demons) that often possess mystic powers, shape-shift, possess mortal bodies and are tricksters. There are a wide variety of tales about the fox spirit in Japanese folklore as well as appearing in modern media like Anime, Manga, and Fiction fantasy books so we could not pick just one tale.

We will leave this up to you to decide how you wish to depict Kitsune. The most famous Japanese Kitsune is Tamamo no Mae and is a great place to start. While we are focusing on the Japanese version of the fox spirit you are more than welcome to use any fox spirit from around the world as inspiration.

Presenting On the Wings of SL Fantasy by Jaz!

jazexhibitpostersign

The Lost Unicorn Gallery is hosting the Opening event, On the Wings of SL Fantasy, for the very talented artist Jaz this Saturday the 9th at 10am. Jaz discovered her love of photography in world in 2018 and now has an amazing collection of imaginative, whimsical and magical works within her portfolio! She has created pictures within many themes, but always goes back to one of her favorites, the fantasy realm. The added bonus is Jaz’s love of writing and telling stories! She has combined this creative talent with the pictures she captures at some of her favorite regions in world. The result has been some fantastic storytelling!

Stop by the gallery and view one of these stories called Robots of Maya where she has taken pictures at the Lost Unicorn forest sim and made a delightful story from them. We also have several of her original fantasy themed pictures on display. DJ Vasa Vella will be playing some great music for us!

We have 3 special guest artists with their work on display on the first floor:

Hilaire Beaumont
Thespis Clay
Nico Arlington

Dress in your fantasy avatars or outfits and enjoy the show!

The Enchantment of Artist Gossamerstar

starpostersignJoin us at The Lost Unicorn Gallery for a beautiful display of artist Gossamerstar’s work! She has created up to 11 new pictures just for the event.

In her own words, “I love color, flowers, and all things fantasy and while I have been known to do the occasional landscape and portrait style picture I always return to fantasy. I’m happiest when wearing wings“.

In the upcoming exhibit, this love of color, flowers and fantasy (including fairies) really shines. All of her pictures have a lovely softness about them, yet with just the right combination of color and feeling. Her love of fantasy stands out in every piece.

Noma Falta will be performing live for the event from noon to 1pm.  She is a powerful, passionate performer in the Music scene of Second Life. A vocalist, bass player, and guitar player in genres covering Blues, rock, soul, pop, and jazz influenced tunes. Noma plays bass and sings live with tracks for solo shows, but she can also perform a solo acoustic show – just woman and guitar.

Be sure and stop by for this must see event!

New Sim! Finian’s Dream

Finian's Dream

A mystical and beautiful land created in celebration of old Celtic Ireland with a touch of magic 🙂 Ireland is known for its many secrets of the forest…after all, that’s where fairies came from! Walk through the deep and magical woods, you might just make some discoveries along the way. Stop by the pub and allow Donngal to make you a drink while you watch Rowan perform her Irish dance (no she never gets tired :P). Be sure and listen to the three famous Irish legends located in different locations on the sim. These were voice recorded by an SL resident from Ireland, sukibombuki Resident. Also, in the castle that overlooks the forest and a few other areas on the sim, we have many photographic artwork pieces from Ireland on display by Cybele Moon, who is Irish as well.
