The Unicorn by Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe


Enchanted of Elven Realm's main icon is definitely the unicorn. After all, the sim houses a large unicorn sanctuary. I have always loved unicorns (all animals for that matter) since I was a child, so wanted the sim to focus on them, plus other forest animals. Then my thinking went even further, and I decided to take the percentage of donations given to the sim and in turn, give it to a national animal rights advocacy group called, Friends of Animals.

Originally, my good friend SeleneLily and I were searching for poseballs for the unicorns already on Enchanted, knowing how much most people enjoyed taking pictures. After much searching, we realized there really were no poses made specifically for this animal, unless it was a unicorn you could ride. Otherwise, we could use different model poses that looked close to what could be used with the unicorn. Then, Selene spoke with creator Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe to see if she could possibly make some poseballs just for the unicorn. Faery was intrigued with the idea and came to Enchanted to see what it was all about. Faery was suddenly inspired to make her own unicorn as a pose prop! She worked diligently on it and after it was finished, she sent me one before it was introduced. I can't tell you how excited and emotional I was when I tried it out! It was AMAZING!

Here's how the unicorn works: You bring it out of your inventory, then "sit" on it. Once you're sitting on it, touch the unicorn and a menu will pop up in the right corner of your screen. You have a choice of 5 poses with the unicorn! That's right, you heard me, 5 poses!! Each and every single pose was completely smooth and synchronized! The unicorn itself lays on the ground, stands, and rears up. Then the avie poses had to be coordinated with the unicorn's movements. Not an easy project, but done with love and care, as the finished product will attest! I think it's time to SHOW you what the poses look like! Please see the pictures below and one above. All are labeled with the pose name.




First Encounter

Aren't they all absolutely gorgeous? I know Faery will do very well with them. She offered them at a fantastic introductory price of 600L during the Grand Opening, and now has decided to keep them at this unbelievable price! With all the time and work she put into making the unicorn, this is a fantastic deal! You may purchase them at Enchanted or Studio Sidhe, of course. Enjoy!

  1. lovely post Nat! Thanks so much :)

    It was a pleasure to meet and work with you both


    p.s. I decided to keep the Unicorn as the introductory price so they're accessible to everyone... I think everyone should be able to have a unicorn friend if they want one :D

  2. I now have the unicorn. It's beautiful.
