Jewelry Fair 2010

jfair2

I want to start with a congratulations to the organizers and builders of the Jewelry Fair. The builds truly make you feel as if you’re in the world of Beauty & the Beast (this year’s theme). Navigating has never been so easy with wide open spaces and no unnecessary clutter in the way. The fair is divided between 4 sims, each one its own design of the theme:

The Forest – a pathway winding through trees and flowers with multicolour silk covered booths showcasing fantasy and eclectic jewelry styles.

Beast’s Castle – a dark and gothic looking castle and booths showcasing goth, occult and BDSM jewelry styles.

Beauty’s Castle – an opposite of the Beast’s castle in that it’s light and beautiful showcasing formal, fancy and traditional jewelry styles.

The Village – is a Bavarian style village surrounding a town square showcasing a casual style of jewelry.

CHARITY

Oxfam is the charity that this year’s fair is helping. From their website (www.oxfam.org):

“Oxfam International is a confederation of 13 like-minded organizations working together and with partners and allies around the world to bring about lasting change.

We work directly with communities and we seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.”

100% of proceeds from vendor entry fees, one-of-a-kind auction, pair sponsors, events are going to Oxfam as well, participants have put up vendors in their booths with items that 50% of the proceeds will go to Oxfam also.

You’ll also see wishing wells around all the sims with 100% of any lindens collected goes to Oxfam so if you have some spare lindens, please throw some in.

There is an auction being held in the Beast’s castle where you can bid on one-of-a-kind items. I’m not sure of the exact date the auction will take place but I believe it will be towards the end of the fair.

There’s also a kissing booth for those who love to kiss, especially for a good cause.

LAG

We all know the lag events like this can cause and if you click on one of the signs at the main TP landing point you’ll receive a folder with a note card with tips on how to reduce lag as well as a really cool bubble to use. Just remove your AO and wear the bubble to get around the sim. I LOVE this bubble, it’s so cool and I’ve added it to my lag reducing folder as a permanent thing to use at other events.

Jewelry Fair 2010

A few things you can do to help reduce lag is remove all scripted items, huds, and attachments. Also one thing I always do is press CTRL+P to go into preferences and put my graphics quality down to 0, it really does help. Let’s be thoughtful to those around us.
