Fairelands on the Horizon   Leave a comment

Last year, during my “rookie” period (lol), Harper introduced me to Fantasy Faire. Beyond the good work that will be done for the American Cancer Society, this event, maybe the biggest in Second Life each year, is just plain fun. I loved roaming around in costume last year, from full kimono to barbarian princess. In fact, the barbarian princess mode I was in was my inspiration for some of the costumes I’ve shot myself in since.

As of today (March 31), there’s 20 days until the gates between worlds open once more. Start saving your money, put together your most fantastic costume, and drop in beginning on April 20. Harper, Conan and I’ll be doing our usual photo work, as well as coming up with fresh costumes from what we pick up in the fifteen regions of the Faire. And, when you can, be generous in your giving to the Relay for Live vendors or kiosks. Cancer is something that’s touched almost all of us in one way or another, both in RL and in lost SL friendships.

See you at the Faire!

Fantasy Faire 2017

It arrives like the first ray of sunlight in the spring, like the scent of budding leaves in the wind, the stirring of slumbering spirit. The very first word from the Fairelands, as they begin shifting and changing, stretching and awakening, growing from dreams into reality.

Throughout the whole long year the Fairelands have been dreaming. They try on shapes like we would clothes, mix sea with forests, cliffs with towers, magic with mundane. Spires reach up toward the skies like blades of grass in the spring, caves emerge as dug by ground-dwellers over millennia, corals twist into mer-castles, gardens bloom. Fairelands dream, dream and breathe magic.

Some shapes they keep, some they set aside. Some dreams go together, form a chain of worlds holding hands with natural ease like siblings. Some need to wait for their family of worlds longer still, gaining strength and spirit.

This year, this spring…

Fantasy Faire 2017

The doors slide open a nudge. There is no expected creak, no sound despite their heavy appearance. There’s just light, escaping in brilliant rays and dancing sparkles, in a wisp of purple curling toward the onlooker.

The Fairelands are stirring, taking shape in their gradual annual rebirth. Streams spring to life, forests grow out of mere blades of grass, mountains flatten to valleys, sand turns to stars, the breeze carries scents of sea and adventure.

The doors are opening. The portals are shifting, searching for the connection to our world. Soon.

Fantasy Faire is coming. The eleven days of magic will take place April 21st – May 1st and the preparations are well under way.

If you are a creator looking to participate in the Faire, there might still be a few themed stores available, but no guarantees! Check out the registration form here. If you are interested in sponsoring…

Around the Fantasy Faire

Some pictures I took while running around this year’s Fantasy Faire — which, according to Daniel Voyager, has pulled in well over L$5.5 million for this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  You may want to check the SLurls and see if the regions are still up, if you didn’t take the time to tour them before; they were still open yesterday as I tried to finish my own tour.

(Larger versions of the photos can be found on Flickr and Koinup.)
