The Mystery of the Mooring

Nya Alchemi has had to withdraw from the Faire because of health reasons. We wish all the best to her and hope she will soon recover.

This sad news affects one of the Fairelands that was to be coaxed to life under Nya’s hands: Wiggenstead Mooring. The Mooring is now in the state of transformation and super secret construction for purposes that will be revealed at the Faire.

The merchants that were assigned to Wiggenstead Mooring will be contacted by Elizabeth Tinsley for new spots in the Fairelands.

There are still opportunities to get involved with the Faire: if you are interested, please contact Elizabeth Tinsley directly.

Also, the blogger applications are still open and running.

19 days to the Fairelands!

Blogger Applications Are Open!

That’s right. We have a month to go before the Fairelands emerge from the mists and so it’s time to look for people to record their brief-lived splendor and to spread the word so that no one misses their chance for a visit.

This year we are going to do things a bit differently. There won’t be any obligatory assignments, instead there’s blogger challenges. You can read more about them in here: Faire Folk | My New Shiny | Why I Relay

We are looking for bloggers who love what they do and who love fantasy, bloggers who live fantasy and cannot wait to explore the Fairelands. We want bloggers who are searching for new looks for their characters (or more permanent selves) and wish to dive straight into the Fairelands for eleven days like the lost fantasy kingdom it is, returning every year to us briefly. We are looking for bloggers who indulge in the whole experience, not just the new shinies, no matter how shiny they might be. (And they are.)

Without further ado, here be the faq and application.
Also possibly dragons. 

New Shinies!

We have them. The Fantasy Faire website has been transformed into a new look, shedding the old skin to bask in the light of the new Faire year. The official press release has been published along with promotional material that can be used in the posts about Fantasy Faire 2014. Both the new graphics and all of the promotional material are by Alia Baroque.

There’s also a new section and information for the bloggers, the most important of which is the Blogger FAQ. The blogger applications will open on April 1st.

The rules and guidelines section has now also our script load policy and a set-up guide for the creators for handy online reference. The rules can also be found in the same spot.

The sponsors page is in progress and on that note I’d like to mention that although the sim sponsor opportunities are all gone and reserved, there are still spots open for becoming an event sponsor. Likewise we do still have some limited space for creators of fantasy and steampunk. Yes, steampunk! We have several steampunk sims this year, so don’t think it’s only about magic and fairies here!

If you would like to apply for an event sponsor or store spot, please fill the application here: tinyurl.com/fantasyfaire2014

One month to the opening of the Fairelands portals, it’s time to start counting the days!

Prepare for the Faire!

Fantasy Faire 2014 will take place in the Fairelands unlike anything you’ve seen before, the lands change shape every year and every year they become better.

The Faire will happen in early May, the exact dates to mark on the calendar are May 1-11.

There are currently no applications for merchants. The Faire is old and established and there are plenty of creators who are as much an integral part of it as the Fairelands themselves and we will first scribe in those registrations.

The first invitations to the merchants will be sent out by the end of February.

The open applications for merchants will begin some time after March 15th.

Keep an eye on the site: as soon as there are more news, we will let you know!
