{ Eat, drink and be merry }

I’ve been a fan of medieval history and the renaissance for years, enamored with the pageantry and chivalry, the poetry and the art.  It’s all pretty fascinating.  This also explains my obsession with shows like Game of Thrones or The Tudors.  In fact, the very first time I ever tried to roleplay in Second Life was on the medieval sim of Avalon.  I admit it didn’t last too long, but I’ve always appreciated the RPing community in SL and can definitely see the draw for people to play.

Thanks to events like We ❤ Roleplay and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, you now have places to shop featuring some of the best RP content creators offering new items monthly!  I hadn’t ever been to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival before and was pleasantly surprised at all the beautiful creations.  Being a gacha event, it’s definitely a money-sucker, but if you’re determined you can come out with some pretty amazing stuff.  I was inspired by so many of the things I saw, my brain was bursting with ideas.  In addition this round of We ❤ Roleplay was chocked full of awesome designs.  I had to visit the Linden ATM before my trip was done.

The photos I have done here were inspired by and centered around the [bauwerk] Banquet table that is available at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I imagined a grand castle banquet hall lit with torches and candlelight, adorned in tapestries and banners, a table full with bountiful feast and the more I shopped, the more it came together.  {Junbug}‘s lovely period dress from We ❤ Roleplay was the perfect clothing choice for such a merry feast.

One item that I want to show off to you that isn’t from either event, however, is this gorgeous necklace from an up and coming store called Empyrean Forge.  The details and texturing are very well done, and I’m pretty picky about my mesh.  And definitely about my jewelry.  So I was quite impressed with this piece and looking forward to seeing more from them.  They have a few items out on marketplace currently and  I’ve been told many more to come in the next several weeks.

I may not be a hardcore RPer but you don’t have to be to enjoy all these goodies.  For me it’s just about imagination and playing dress up from time to time.

Now… LET US FEAST!
