Water Faerie in Roan: An Azure Wonderland

the sky above,
the Texas state flower,
the splashing sea,
a diving dolphin,
a stripe in the rainbow,
a pair of every day jeans,

September's birthstone.

a sad mood.

Clean, refreshing, mellow, cool, water, There are many words and phrases that describe this lovely color, which happens to be my all time favorite :) This being said, what better than to wear my new water fae outfit I purchased from Wishbox and then travel to Roan for some beautiful scenery and backdrop choices.

A view of Roan zoomed out

Roan is one of the most beautiful sims I've seen in Second Life. I was in awe of everything from the music to the architecture, from the prevalence of the color blue to the gorgeous gardens, and from the magical ambiance to the constant glow among all the displayed objects. The sounds within the sim are so pretty (not the music, but the sound you hear when the music is off) and is alot like meditational music. It's also placed just right and varies somewhat by the area of the sim you're in. The whole sim is similar to an underground city of Atlantis that has shifted up and out of the water. The gorgeous architecture, all with blue color tones, is very unique and definitely stands out in the crowd. Surrounding the architecture are small mountains with gardens and trees of their own. High above and over the sim, are little landings with gardens and poses for romantic meetings, all still with the same architecture as the others. The base of the build is all water with an abundance of beautiful bridges and glowing gardens of bright and colorful flowers. In the middle, among all the gardens, stands a majestic unicorn along with a couple poses...a perfect place for pictures!

The wings literally glow and are lovely when it's dark

Central area with the beautiful gardens that look like a Van Gogh work of art

Overall, Roan is a true work of art and no detail is left undone. I just love that blue is the prominent color. Many poseballs are scattered about the sim and are anywhere from romantic couples poses to dream dances or meditations. There is an area of the sim where dolphins and whales are in abundance and alot of fun to watch. Also, there are many glowing, sparkling and artistic type objects here and there. Even the flowers in the gardens glow! What's really neat is when you set your environment to midnight and watch the colors and glowing effects covering the region. So gorgeous! This sim and Lumera (underwater fantasy world) are both must-sees! Enjoy :)
