On the far away island of Kurkenbrai
Missy the Human was Queen of the Fae
And the beasts, and the people, the plants and the trees
The land was affluent and all lived with ease
Her subjects had everything that they might need
And all were quite happy, quite happy indeed.
Forgive my poor at attempt at Dr. Suess fanfiction, all in good fun! Now, as most every other Dr. Suess story, there is a bit of a cautionary tale, moral, hidden critique of humans woven through Yertle the Turtle. Now, Yertle is a bad turtle king. Naturally, Missy the Human would be the queen of all queens; and if I were the queen of all I see, I would be in a very high tower of stone, not on the back of my subjects, turtle or otherwise. Therefore, my fantasy can end without a cautionary tale, as Missy the Queen is practically perfect in every way. Missy the human also brings you knowledge of several fantastical deals, some quite inexpensive, some not under 100 lindens, but between Missy Math™ and Missy desire, I have quite a bit to show off today, most, however, will be in annotated style card format.
Purple is the color of royalty, so when I saw this dress from Moonstar by the Sea as an exclusive at Dazzle, I was taken on this flight of fancy. Most that you see featured from neck to toe is included in the outfit; the necklace, the dress, and the strappy shoes. The dress is really something special, the texture of the main body is a gorgeous purple with golden flowers, and the edging is done in a subtly animated sparkle. Even with 3 pieces in this set, the price is only 150 lindens, and you know what that means in terms of Missy math since I love to be about that mix & match potential. The Arya Gown comes fitted for Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas with coordinating shoes for each. Since the shoes are hard to see peeping out from under the floor length skirt, and still photos just do not do justice to the sparkle, I captured a little gif on the graphics settings that I think most likely use for standard play. There’s also an absolutely fabulous rich jewel emerald green in crushed velvet version of this dress available.
I’m falling further and further behind on my blogs this month, so I request your forgiveness that the rest of the post will be in an annotated style card version, with pics of course!
Hair: Alli & Ali “Serene Hair, Ash” -Blondes pack 250L *I, however, got this as a special dollarbie Promo, which is now no longer listed as such, but was so perfect for my vision that I had to use it. But here you find my cautionary tale, it’s smart to check the Alli & Ali marketplace store often to watch for these low priced promos! Alli & Ali also has an exclusive this round of Dazzle, so don’t miss that either.

One of the perks of keeping my standard head is that I get to layer lipsticks to get custom colors. This works best when you use the same designer as they tend to have similar shapes, not always though, so try the demos if you want to simulate this technique. I prefer to add the lightest, most sheer one last to create the best blend. Oh well, you know, I also did the same thing with my eye makeup!

Belly Jewel: Beloved Jewelry-Emerald Bay Store“Beloved Jewelry “Mishka Belly Piercing(Texture Change/Pt Mesh)” -part of a complete set of Necklace, bracelets, earrings, and this belly piercing. It is an older creation of Miss Kimbra’s and has a texture change set that contains less, but different customizable options than the latest texture change C script does. I’m wearing it here in the etched gold 2 and amethyst options. It’s still fairly sonic drink math worthy though! I’ve mentioned to Kimbra a time or two that I would love to see these etched metals come back in some newer pieces! 425 lindens for the complete set, or between 100 and 185 lindens for individual pieces, this belly ring being 100 lindens.
I had just way too much fun when I designed this scene. I started with a camping scene that’s one of the scenes in my multi-scene skybox rental. I was able to turn off the picnic blanket and tent, just leaving this island with hills, a waterfall, a running stream, and opening to a lake. Perfect for what I had in mind. Then I went nuts putting out ground cover, long grass, fluffy grass, 3 types of regular flowers, and 3 colors of animated flowers! Then the animated trees, 3 different types and designers, with of one having multi-colored options. These I will be posting gifs of! All of it built around this Fairy Tale tower. I’ll probably be repeating this scene again. Now for the ground covers, I’m not 100% sure what is all actually visible in the entirety of my pictures, but I’m gonna list all that I used.
Grass: Lunaria “.Lunaria. Tall Grass” -25L
Dandelions: Lunaria “.Lunaria. Dandelion Field” -25L
Multiple Flowers and Fluffy grass: Lunaria – group gifts/group FREE to join (I literally use these group gifts all the time. There’s the fluffy grass, and 5 separate flowers, there are also trees, bushes, trellises and archways available.) Great for builders!
Blue Petunias: Sweet Revolutions
March Vintage Gacha Gift
Animated Flowers: Harshlands “[HL] Flower Field” – I used the cyan, mint, and gold, but there’s also a crimson in the box. Missy math applies! – 4 for 200L make that 50L each!
Ice blue lights tree with rotating bubbles: Sweet Revolutions “~*SR*~ Winters Hollow ~ Lights of Elune cm”
past gift at January’s MidWinter Fair
Now that the last tree that I added and wasn’t part of the original skybox scene, I didn’t do justice to. I actually hurriedly grabbed the above picture for a more focused shot on normal graphics so that I could single it out, but it still doesn’t do it enough justice. But, there’s always the next post, since I will be using this again as it has poses! There’s a purple crescent swing chair to sit on. Sitting there didn’t fit my vision today, but it’s too cool not to use for another photo shoot. You can snatch a copy of this “= MB = MoonTree in purple, animated” at this round of Dazzle for 125 lindens from MB Content Creators, but no fear, it will be hanging around in the main store for 139 lindens after. If you visit the main store, you can consider joining the in world group for 35 lindens and keep up with the news and updates, as well as land yourself some regular group gifts.
Tower with Animations: Exposeur “Fairytale Tower” –300L Marketplace only
So, you’re looking at about 3 days worth of work for me on this post! Not at all sure if you can tell, but I hope you can, an awesome new friend taught me a few new graphics settings that I think have much improved my pictures, and I can’t help showing off just a little over the journey I’ve made from taking pics on midday setting at 512×512 size! Now, I get to show off just a bit more by showing you some more of the included animations with the tower. No following style card this time, so let me just wish you happy shopping!
