** The Great Gateway AUCTION! **    

At the Fantasy Faire we have beautiful gazebos leading (via a teleport portal) into each of the 8 themed shopping sims. Each is a work of art painstakingly created by a Master SL builder and is an original creation reflecting the beautiful and unique atmosphere of each sim.  You have the opportunity to buy one of these amazing gates to be your very own – TODAY, Sunday 10th of April at 5pm SLT on the main Fantasy Faire Stage.

Below is a description and pictures of each of these amazing builds (each can be seen on the Fantasy Faire Central sim):

* Forest of Light *
138 prims . A post and beam structure for your garden in the Tudor style, complete with ivy and sculpted giant morning glories. Don’t miss the naughty crow stealing berries! Size is 20m W x 20m D x 18m H. By our own fantasmagorical Lauren Thibaud 

* Forest of Shadow *
51 prims of petrified swamp wood and crystals- a skeletal structure that’s very nearly gothic with stylized flying buttresses but stretches the rules to incorporate a bit of dark magic. Size is 20mW x20m D x 23m H.  From the visionary imagination of  Numberofthebeast Angelis 

* Dark Mirage *
128 prims  A gateway to the mystery of the orient, this beautifully detailed construction is degraded with a verdigried patina, speaking to the ancient mysteries and forgotten truths of long ago. Hanging lanterns glow softly to light the way for you on your path to deeper knowledge.   17W x 17 D x 6 H.  The combined genius of Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee delights us all once again.

* Nemo Revisited *
200 prims  Curly twisted and organic vines of deeply embossed metal are hung with working clocks and  etched glass globes, suspending an ornate chandelier in a reworking of the art nouveau style. Working gears on the platform and visiting mechanical cardinals are inundated by falling sparks- no worries- wear your rubber soled shoes.  15m W x15m D x15m H  By the very talented Arachne Anatra

* Sea of Mer *
97 prims A glittering cushion to rest Poseidon’s golden crown upon, this gazebo is embellished with precious gems and mother of pearl.  A mariner’s compass forms the base and ensures that you will never lose your way. 22m w x22m D x8m H. By the incomparable Zander Greene.    

* Exotic Worlds * 
An astonishing build of only 57 prims. Dark wood with phosphorescence adorned with glowing mushrooms and an organic stained glass in blues and greens, this portal promises a cool day when you pass through to the other side. Size is 24m W x24m D x 38m H. By the amazing artist Elicio Ember. 

* Fantastical and Magical * 
57 prims  Celebrate the joining of the natural and the manmade with this intriguing installation.  Elegant columns are the transport for streams of misty water which precariously support  a network of vines leading to a bark topper. We are protected from the elements as much as we are a part of them. Have a seat below and dont worry about your bubble bursting- here it never will!  24m W x24m D x 24m H  Another fabulous work by everyone’s favorite toymaker, Mayah Parx

* Enchanted Mysts *  
95 prims    Mossy stonework and  carved symbols transport us back to a time of enchantments and spells. Doubled glass pyramids have captured the glowing mist of another age, and we search for meaning in the forgotten written language of the runes. Suspended in time, we can only hope for the release of our trapped essences  while we worry what may be unleashed with us. 20m W x20m D x9.5 H By the generous and gifted Alia Baroque

** The Fantasy Faire SIMS AUCTION! **   

ALSO being auctioned will be two FULL sim builds as seen at the Fantasy Faire 2011. Mayah Parx is offering all buildings and landscaping on the delightful “Fantastical and Magical” sim and the combined talents of Lauren Thibaud, Piedras Chama and Nonna Hedges offer their gorgeous “Forest of Light” sim build and landscaping (including realistic animals from Jon Haskell)!  The buildings total about 650 prims and the landscaping is under 2500 prims in each sim.

* Fantastical and Magical*
“Fantastical and Magical is a journey through our childhood dreams, in here we’ll find those classic fairy stories, traditional tales, those favourite cartoons, movies and books, all tumbling head over heals into your sleep. The craziest, wildest, most colourful and wonderous dream you could never imagine. Never that is unless you are Mayah Parx. Not content with having a hand in many of the other sims she took Fantastical and Magical head on and the result is nothing short of spectacular.” Beq Janus 2011

For a full tour of the sim and build please visit:

* Forest of Light *
Forest of Light is like walking into a fairytale village. You expect to see Belle walking down the street or perhaps run into Cinderella as she is running errands for her Wicked Stepmother. This magical, tree filled sim, full of colour and fun is the joint creation of Lauren Thibaud, Piedras Chama and Nonna Hedges. The town is the perfect storybook medieval backdrop to all your fantasy adventures and when you venture off the streets and follow the path into the woods, it is not a dark and terrifying place like Snow White’s forest but a beautiful multi-hued environment filled with wonderful trees, a stunning stream and waterfall and woodland animals. If you are very quiet perhaps you will hear them break out in song.

We are fortunate to also be offering up for auction today a signature piece from three of our sim designers:

* Dark Mirage Tower *
The Looking Glass creators, Marcus Inkpen & Sharni Azalee, evoked an atmosphere of sensual, warmth and mysterious charm on their sim build, Dark Mirage. The pathway tracks around the edge of this corner sim covering three sides and all but encricling the broad lake at the middle of which stands the stunning landmark tower in brillant orange and gold.  Marcus and Sharni have generously offered up this stunning monument and the bridge that leads you to it for our special auction today.

* Cottontails Chocolate Forest of Easter Dreams *
Born of the Lands of Chocolate that lie to the north of Donati, Home to Epic Toys Toymaker, there be a special forest hidden form the world…A forest rich in chocolate, color and fun, a forest of Easter dreams.

In contribution to the Fantasy Faire 2011 The Toymaker has spoken with the keepers of the forest, Flopsy, Mopsy and Peter Cottontail himself, and they are all together agreed the FOREST OF EASTER DREAMS will expand to another land spreading its joy, chocolate and smiles to all who venture through.

  1. Fantastical and Magical truly sums up my experience at the fantasy faire this year! I have met some of the most amazing people, seen some of the most amazing creations and formed some lasting relationships I will cherish forever. Hats off to all the fantasy faire staff, creators and attendees for enabling us to reach our goal and support such a worthy cause.

    I was fortunate enough to be able to win the fantastical and magical sim auction created by the ever so talented Mayah Parx and I am still marveling over all the wonderful creations in this sim! When I went to go take another look at my purchase my mouth dropped open as I realized the incredible items I had not even noticed before. The detail of Mayah’s work is incredible! It truly is a dream come true for this fairy to have a piece of history like that….and worth every penny and then some. Thanks Mayah for bringing such a whimsical build to the faire. We are all blessed to have such a great group of people who all support this great cause. You all bring magic and hope into all our lives …..Thanks again to all
