For the first time, Fantasy Faire is throwing open its doors and welcoming builders throughout the length and breadth of Second Life the opportunity to share in creating the Fairelands. Do you dream of worlds? Do you want the chance to bring those dreams to life? If you, or someone you know, might be interested in creating a region for this year’s Faire please take a moment or two to fill out the following form.
Calling all the bards and music-makers, as well as their accompanying party-raisers! In more mundane tongue: DJs and hosts for the Live at the FaireChylde parties of this year’s Fantasy Faire. Faire takes place April 23rd to May 10th, but the event scheduling — including these parties — covers only the traditional eleven days. More details in the applications!
PS: Store applications are also open. Blogger applications will open on March 23rd.
Have you been reloading this page for months, waiting for this moment? Have you been having nightmares of waking up in May and realizing you forgot about the Faire? Did you become a Fairelander last year and now cannot wait to become a bigger part of the annual enchantment?
For all of you struggling with the Faire-withdrawal, the moment of that first step of the spring is here.
Without further ado:
Store Applications for Fantasy Faire 2020
PS: Blogger applications will open as usual one month before the Faire and will be posted here as well.
Here we are in a brand new year, and the distant rumblings of the re-emergence of the Fairelands can be heard distinctly in the not-so-distant future. So the FFR staff is taking a break from the off-season programming you have been enjoying since June, as we turn our sights towards preparations for this year’s Fantasy Faire.
In the meantime, we have some information to share on adjustments we have made this month that we believe will help carry you forward till Faire time:
Our 2018 radio drama broadcast of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and the 2019 Tales from the Fairelands are now available on Mixcloud – FantasyFaireRadioSL.
Beginning Monday, January 13th the broadcast rotation of Tales from the Fairelands will comprise selected episodes from 2016 – 2019: four Faires full of adventures. We hope that these inspired poems and stories will remind you of cherished moments from those years, and whet your appetite for what awaits you in late April.
If you were benighted, bothered, and/or befuddled by the grid failures that disrupted this Fantasy Faire Radio/Seanchai Library co-production when it aired back in October, here’s a great opportunity for you! We know that there are those who missed it that wanted to hear it, and more specifically who wanted to be there in Second Life to experience it live. This Sunday, December 29th, you can have your wish!
Seanchai Library is hosting an encore performance of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde at The Dickens Project on Sunday, December 29th at 2pm Pacific Time. You are invited to join us and cheer for Gabriel John Utterson as he pursues the mysteries plaguing his friend Dr Henry Jekyll, and be prepared to snarl back at Edward Hyde in equal measure. Or tune in to Fantasy Faire Radio.
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde on Fantasy Faire Radio
Live from The Dickens Project Opera House
Sunday, December 29th from 2-3:30pm slt
At 2pm SLT today, Sunday 15th December, the Company of Faire Folk are invited to meet at Little Trollhaugen as a launching pad.
From there we will ride out (or walk) and explore Cerridwen’s Cauldron, the beautiful region created by Elicio Ember. There will be some wading too as Elicio is very good with creating watery scenes!
In this Season of Hope, we will shut out nothing from our firesides and everyone will be welcome.
~ the character of Charles Dickens from the film “The Man Who Invented Christmas”
“Dickens? Fantasy?,” you say. “Bah, Humbug!,” we say. A Christmas Carol has much that is fantastical: supernatural phenomena, time travel, magical flight, ghosts! Dickens could have hardly made it more of a fantasy if he’d dressed the Ghost of Christmas Past in an Alia Baroque custom skin, and a Faida gown.
Sunday, December 15th from 2-4pm slt Fantasy Faire Radio will embrace the energy of the holidays, and share it with Rock from Dickens Square. DJ Elrik Merlin will play classic rock from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean at The Dickens Project SL. Continue reading Fantasy Faire Radio Rocks The Dickens Project – Sunday, December 15th
