FF2014: Like Niobe, all tears

I don't know the inspiration behind Alia Baroque's Lacrimosa avatars for Fantasy Faire, but they remind me of the legend of Niobe.

Niobe was another of the foolish mortals of Ancient Greece who angered an Olympian and was made to pay a terrible price.

Blessed with fourteen children, seven sons and seven daughters, Niobe boasted that this made her superior to Leto, mother only of twins Artemis and Apollo. Enraged, Leto sent her children to enact vengeance, and all her offspring were slain.

In her grief, it was as if Niobe had been turned to stone, though her tears continued to fall, becoming the river Achelous.

Fittingly, the skins for the Lacrimosa come with a weeping and non-weeping version (they also comes with a nip-free PG version!). The pack also includes matching tunic, eyes and various appliers, including Slink and Lola's.  A male version is available also.

You'll find Fallen Gods on their sponsored sim of Sanctum sim while the Faire continues. It runs until May 11, so don't delay. There are nine beautiful sims to explore.
