AdonisLubomir, the owner of the SWANK event also sponsors the Faireland of The Story Well. He shares his reasons to join the Fairelanders, talks about organizing the SWANK event, and reveals that this is going to be his first time at the Faire!
This is your first year sponsoring Fantasy Faire. What made you decide to become a sponsor?
I have had the pleasure of hosting some of the Fantasy Faire sim builders at my Swank Event and when I heard from them about the positive, loving environment that is created each year, it made me want to become a part of it. When the sponsor position became available I felt it was a perfect way to join the FF Family and support them.
Tell us about SWANK event?
My creating in Second Life revolves around supporting designers by supplying immersive themed event spaces for their products each month with Swank Events and utilising my marketing skills to further support and promote each one of them.
What are you bringing to the Faire this year?
As an event owner, I decided that I would share my sponsorship with some of my chosen designers and have asked a few of them to come along with me and each will be providing an item for an RFL Vendor. I am sure you will love their creations.
What calls you to fantasy? When was the first time you encountered the genre and realized you enjoyed it?
I have experienced many things in Second Life but there was nothing quite like the experience of immersing in some of the fantasy sims I have been introduced to. From Riding dragons and exploring underwater areas at Cerridwen’s Cauldron to Mad Hatters Ball at The Looking Glass, I am excited to see what this year’s Faire will bring.
Do you have a favourite Faire memory? What are you looking forward to most this year?
This is actually my first Fantasy Faire experience. I have heard of it of course over past years but have never managed to become involved. I am assured I will have many, many great memories by the end of the Event. I am looking forward to experiencing the atmosphere first hand, seeing some great entertainment and being part of the fun that brings the special magic to the Faire.
Thank you, Adonis, for taking the time to chat with us. Thank you for becoming a Fairelander!
