The Fairelands are Gone….

The Blessing of Anubis

Photographed in The Golden Delta, Fantasy Faire 2016

…But Fantasy Faire 2016 is not forgotten.  Especially the amount of good that has been done here.  As of my check a few seconds ago, the Relay for Life has raised L$ 7,380,456, or better than $29,000 in RL money.

The builds won’t be forgotten, either.  My favorite (where I’m posing here, as Latifah) was The Golden Delta, based around an Egyptian theme, and there was also moody, misty Blackmoor, which I didn’t get any photos of myself; however, Conan shot some in a few spots.  Jem and I both enjoyed our day at Sapphire Moon Lake — not surprisingly, as that was the home for the arts activities.  You can see all our photos as I add them to my album on Flickr, or at our individual streams.

Latifah wore something similar last year, and most of the jewelry is the same, so we’ll just look at the changes to the costume here.

Welcome One and All!

Welcome One and All!

The gates are open at last; Fantasy Faire is here!

I’ve only been to two regions so fair, Fairelands Junction (of course) and Sapphire Mirror Lake (the arts region, where I’m standing here), but what I’ve seen so far has impressed.  I’ve told the others to get themselves in here and take plenty of pictures as well as do some shopping — it will be worth it.  And, while you visit, remember to be as generous as you can, not only to the stores, but to the main goal of Fantasy Faire, to raise money to fight cancer. through the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life program.

I’m wearing the Orianna gacha gown from Luas, which you can obtain quite easily from the gacha at her store.  Or, I’ll tell you right now, I’ll be setting up a Marketplace store, and I’ll offer colors that you can pick and choose from for L$60, just L$10 over the gacha’s cost.  I have a few I need to get rid of, you see, in my quest to get the rare [read ULTRARARE] jewelry items….  (Sigh)  I’ll announce here when the store goes up.

Tomorrow is Ye Day!

The Doors open tomorrow!  Are you looking forward to this year’s Fantasy Faire as much as I am?  It’s been good before, but last year’s sims were fantastic, and I’m hoping they can pull it off again.  I remember the orgy of photography I drowned Flickr with last year.  Some of the photos were even good.  (Laughing)

The Doors to the Fairelands Are Opening

April 21 is the opening date; get ready!

Fantasy Faire 2017

FF16_Poster_MAIN

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…

Fantasy Faire 2015 Photos

Where has your interrupted, ah, intrepid demon reporter been this past week or more?  Walking — walking around all 13 bleedin’ sims of Fantasy Faire 2015.  One of the top SL Relay for Life events, this year’s Fantasy Faire was bigger, more colorful and more fun than ever, running the gamut of the Four Elements and showing off the creativity of Second Life builders and designers more than ever.  I know this because I covered almost every blessed meter of it on foot, in heelsOh, my achin’ dogs!!!

(A pack of passing puppies looks up and barks in curiosity.)

Okay, okay, I did my share of flying…and swimming, too.  I was even frozen in a block of ice for a time, until someone let it go.  (Let it go, let it go!!!!! [THWAP!!!])

Uh….  My lawyers advise me that, before I get myself into trouble with certain people with large black ears and a tail, I’d better just change topic.  So, I took a scad of photos, all of which can be found at my Flickr stream in a special album, as well as in their Fantasy Faire group.  (The last few will be going into the group tomorrow because of submission restrictions.)  To tempt you into checking out the collection, here’s about five or six of them, after the fold.  Most of the photos, by the way, are at 1920×1080, which makes them excellent wallpaper size for modern monitors.  Feel free to use for non-commercial purposes, just keep my signature on it.

Some Shots from Fashion For Life

A few snapshots from the prettier areas of this year’s Fashion For Life.  The entire build, all 11 sims, is excellent; but these are my favorites.

Fashion for Life — American Cancer Society Region

Fashion for Life 2014 is open, with 10 sims to explore and shop in — but there’s an eleventh that may not be as visited as the others.  Most of the FFL events have a sim laid aside for the recipients of the monies raised during the largest charity event in Second Life, the American Cancer Society.  ACS’ people build exhibits and information sources, and other venues within their region to more fully speak about what all the fun and fashion is for during this period.  Following are pictures from this year’s ACS region, which I suggest you visit as well as the other 10.
