Distractions, distractions…

So this morning I wanted to blog about something serious. I got myself a nice, strong coffee and thought about the charity that is helped by the Fantasy Faire. While trying to make my mind up on how to word the importance of sponsoring RFL, I hopped over to Wiggenstead Mooring and …..oh…look! Shinies!!

On a serious note, please read all about RFL on the special page on this site. And, enjoy the Fairelands and happy shopping!

The hunters are coming….

The past days I have sort of moved in into The Palace of Tears, while working on photo’s, trying out outfits and writing blogposts. A nice and quiet Palace, all for myself!

But now….the Hunt has begun and the hunters are coming…I have  been watching them….

Palace of Tears - I

They are hunting, in the diningrooms, the gardens that surround the Palace….

Palace of Tears - III

Me? I will move on, I will find another place to hide and watch people…*me packs up her stuff and waves at the hunters…

If you are a hunter, or want to become one, you can find all information here! Also, I do recommend to take the time and look around, The Palace of Tears is magnificent and there is so much to see.
In fact, even if you do not participate in the hunt, it is worth a visit to enjoy the building and all the artworks in and around the Palace.

Happy hunting!

 

Shakin’ it on the Fairechylde

What better way to shake off the fairy-dust and show off your new outfits (and watch other people in amazing avatars!), than dancing on awesome tunes played by one of the Fantasy Faire DJ’s on the Fairychylde, after a day of exploring and shopping?!

Fantasy Faire Party - I

I know I love me some clubbin’ and so I hopped over to the Fairechylde, the giant airship that is carried by a huge dragon and currently stationed above the Palace of Tears and danced the night away. Tonight DJ Victoria Grau entertained the crowds and it was wonderful!

You can hear the DJ’s playing anytime, as they use the stream of Fantasy Faire Radio – which broadcasts news and updates continuously.  There are regular events on the ship, so stay tuned and …enjoy!

Sweet Silent Thought

Sweet Silent Thought - I

‘When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time’s waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in death’s dateless night,
And weep afresh love’s long since cancelled woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanished sight.
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o’er
The sad account of fore-bemoanèd moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end’

~ William Shakespeare – Sonnet 30

Sweet Silent Thought - II

The Fairelands Junctions, built by Sayge Lotus, not only for the portals to all locations  but also with the lovely and peaceful  ‘Fen of Remembrance’.

‘Not all those who wander, are lost..’

And with this quote of J.R.R. Tolkien – the Fellowship of the Ring, my first blogpost on this wonderful site, about one of the most amazing events in SL starts…!

My name is Caitlin Tobias and I love the Fantasy Faire.

This afternoon (well for me it was afternoon) The Fantasy Faire 2014 opened its many portals to the eleven sims, filled with gorgeous buildings and shops.

As I stood on Sanctum the moment the Faire opened, I watched the people coming in. Some disorientated, some grey, some immediately started running.  I smiled and tried to blend in, just being an observer. With a camera.

Not all those who wander...are lost...I

Then, two little boys came near  where I stood – disguised as a statue – and I heard them discussing whether or not take the ‘stairway to heaven’, a name not invented by me or anyone, but it is what lots of people say when they see it.
And off they went, to the unknown, to the light.

Not all those who wander...are lost...II

I am sure their journey will be good, and they will not get lost. And maybe one day, they will return from the Fairelands and tell the world about their adventures….Not all those who wander, are lost.

Not all those who wander...are lost...III

Safe travels and enjoy the Fantasy Faire!
