Sunday wrapped our first Faire-weekend with an amazing series of events.
We had a visit from Trader Whiplash, who interviewed some of our Fairelanders for his Relay Rap, broadcasted simultaneously to both Fantasy Faire Radio and T1, the official media partner of Relay For Life of Second Life.
In the Literary Festival we had Avgi Poetry Open Mic, Fantasy Writing Prompts, Freyja Nemeth (Linda Antonsson) of The World of Ice & Fire fame, Boudicaa Amat, Taters and Tots with Ceejay Writer and the LitFest Region Tours traveled to Dawn’s Promise and Egregore.
In Opal Flight the sparkles kept flying as Club IMAGE, The Night Theater, Sky Fire, The Luxe Girls and Misfit Dance & Performance Art kept the Faire Folk entertained.
The amazing roleplay groups continued to weave their stories within the Fairelands: Ynys Seamaide, Steelwood, The Lilypods and Sanctuary adventured through the Fairelands. We also had a fantastic roleplay class held at Fallen Sands.
The parties featured DJ Deere at The FaireChylde and an impromptu party in Dawn’s Promise by DJ Nyza Stillwater!
The star of the day was no doubt Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing by the Faireland Players. The play was magically adapted to fit the Fairelands, including the cast’s fantasy looks and of course the involvement of The Pawlice, which became an immediate audience favourite. This was the first time that a play of this kind of thoroughly choreographed magnitude was prepared for the Faire, and it was truly an astonishing experience!
The setting, the looks, the way the actors were arranged to move in sync with the voice-acted and recorded play raised the whole entertainment to a completely new level. If you missed this one, there will be an encore on the next Sunday, April 30th at 10 AM!
Guess this goes to show that no one can escape the Long Paw of Law, not even Shakespearean villains!
Monday dawns on the Fairelands slightly more relaxing although we have an exciting event for anyone with a liking for modern fantasy: Seanan McGuire, the author of October Daye novels, comes to the Literary Festival for an interview! Come join us in Kakushi Pasu 1 – 3 PM!
