Meet Our World Builders: Haveit Neox & Lilia Artis

Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis, the world-builders of Opal Flight.

Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis, the world builders of Opal Flight, share with us their reasons to return and create worlds for the Faire, the Story of Opal Flight, and their favourite Faire-memories!

You two have grown to become a part of the Fairelands with your realms that are perfect for arts and entertainment, as a stage for performances and as inspiring exhibitions in their own right. Do the realms you’ve brought to life connect to each other in any fashion, is there any lore or story or theme that they share, or are they all their own separate worlds?

Haveit: Our use of the mythological centaurs once again return to Fantasy Faire this year. By revisiting previous themes, it gives a sense of ongoing history to the sim. We also like to expand the mythological cast in the sim’s story, and this year, Lilia has introduced her harpies who have their own tale.

Lilia: With the expansion we try to achieve a working balance of the known, like meeting an old friend who makes you feel comfortable, yet also bring in new aspects, the unknown, like a new acquaintance that makes you feel excited and curious. Somehow we feel you need both, in life it might be the reliability and the challenge.

What is new in your Second Life, what have you been up to the last year?

Lilia: My SL life changed quite a bit since last year and I needed to cut down my time in the virtual world. I am still trying to figure out what to focus on here and what changes to make but the road to take is beginning to show itself. Somehow Fantasy Faire was an eye opener in many ways. It felt wonderful to work for a good cause and with likeminded people who give their best to make the Faire a special, unique event. And, life presenting its strange twists, shortly after the Faire a family member got diagnosed with cancer which came like a shock, as to everyone. I guess I don’t have to describe what it means for the family and how it affects our lives. So this year I am not just working for a good cause, I also do relay and the work for Fantasy Faire definitely has become my priority in SL.

Haveit: For the past year, I have been very busy working on two RL art projects and creating exhibits in Second Life. Presently, I am showing my exhibit “Bleeding Books” at the Split Screen Installation Space. Ironically Bleeding Books will come down at the same time as Fantasy Faire, so I will have to say farewell twice.

How was Opal Flight born? What inspired it, what is its story?

Haveit: Shortly after Fantasy Faire ended last year, and we’d received a warm invite to return the following year, Lilia had an idea almost immediately and most enthusiastically. She told me her idea of huge garden plants dominating a mostly white surface world, and drew out a simple plan to show me. I gravitated to her idea right away. She knows how I love to build under water, and suggested we make it a fun place for the Second Life Mer community to explore, and that I bring back my centaurs into the sunken civilization. Having the story clearly laid out, the next step was to share in the building and creation of textures, which we both shared above and below the ocean. Lilia would describe the story best, as it is hers.

Lilia: The long version of the story is already published on the Fantasy Faire website, on the Opal Flight page. The short version is that this is a story about mourning a loss, craving what you never had and how to come to terms with both. It includes the various ways of help we get on our journey, the good and the not so good. All this is clad in scales and feathers as the main protagonists are fish and harpies.

Do you have favourite Faire memories? What are you looking forward to most this year in the Fairelands?

Haveit: Last year, a group of fantasy avatars as well as centaurs, surprised Lilia and I at the sim we built. Our story was about the lost centaurs of the ancients, but through the magic of the virtual world, and many real hearts, the sight of a group of marvelous creatures flooding into the sim brought both Lilia and I to tears – no exaggeration. She and I were on Skype at that moment, and shared our deep delight with each other. There are many fine memories from the past, Fantasy Faire’s community is ripe with all kinds of wonders. As this year’s Faire begins, I’m already having lots of fun. Our neighbors have been great! While the sim builders were setting up, at about the half way mark, I noticed a rather amazing colossus on Fallen Sands. This is a mechanical bird, craning its house-sized head well into Opal Flight, displaying its grandeur in many subtle tones of rust. This metallic visitor needed sustenance, for its belly was plainly empty. I transformed one of my little birds into a like sized giant, as it offers a tasty rusted cog, large enough to satisfy the hugest appetite. On the other side of Opal Flight, is the border with Mudrana. Their green cliffs open into a mysterious path, with fine landscaping tempting the eye just paces ahead. I love working on sim borders, blending them in, especially when my neighbors have such original ideas! The Fairelands is full of creativity no matter where you venture. Certainly this is true of the performances as well. From plays, dances, story readings, fine art in the galleries, sim tours, particle shows, and on and on, the Fairelands provide visitors with ample fine entertainment and education. Once a year we all have this opportunity to enjoy the rich content of Fantasy Faire, knowing well that it’s impossible to see it all, yet anything you catch will be superb.

Lilia: I guess my most favourite memory is that of the centaur stampede too. But actually I have so many fine memories of the past event that they weave a colourful picture, almost like a unique quilt with its own history. I miss last year’s builds and wish I could dwell there one more time and I welcome this years’ new treasures which I will keep in my heart together with the old ones. And I love the performances. Of course we also watch them as sim builders to see if the stage we designed works and what needs change or improvement were we to do another event. But I am always totally floored by the passionate creativity of the shows. And I guess being a sheep in one of them might become one of our favourite memories. After all we stick to the animal tradition: from centaur to sheep… To finish my collection of wonderful memories I have to mention one encounter this year that was very special to me. When I entered Faireland Junction, I felt flung back into childhood. I grew up in a forest and to me as a child it was full of magic, life and beauty. Its serenity filled me with awe no human build ever since could. Seeing the Junction, it suddenly was right back and in front of my eyes, that special atmosphere only huge forests possess. I am very grateful for the time jump I experienced and felt reconnected, as much as I feel grateful for the numerous positive experiences Fantasy Faire offers each year.

Thank you, Haveit and Lilia, for taking the time to talk with us. Thank you for bringing your worlds to the Fairelands and sharing their stories with us, year after year!

Daily Recap: Friday

Mudrana – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Friday is always a sneaky weekend-starter. One moment you’re still in a regular week-day and suddenly you’re zooming into the weekend!

Seanan McGuire returned to the Literary Festival and did a reading of her short story Lost, a captivating story of children vanishing mysteriously, a mix of Pied Piper with Peter Pan, full of enchantment and longing.

Otherwise the Literary Festival held Fantasy Writing Prompts and a Short Story Discussion group, and Region Tours to Chaddul Ro and The Spirit Pool.

There were dance performances on the stage of Opal Flight, DJ parties on the deck of The FaireChylde, roleplay across the Fairelands, even an OOC party of The NeoVictoria Project where they celebrated the conclusion of their storyline.

The main event of the day was of course the Jail and Bail of Alia Baroque, the creator of Fallen Gods Inc. and the world-builder of The Rose.  This year the Pawlice hadn’t so much caught him as stumbled upon the scene as The Rose herself had captured her gardener in sharp growing thorns.

Never ones to waste a perfectly good capture, the Tiny Sheriffs set out to list all the charges against Mr. Baroque, including but not limited to: not having enough body hair and turning people purple.

The Rose’s demands were, however, quite different. She wished to keep her control of the young buds, to glow in the sun just as she was, and keep the upstarts caged. It was up to the Faire Folk to decide whether the city would get her desire, or if the young roses would be liberated from cages to bloom free. After an intense struggle the Tyrant lost her hold, and the young roses were promised freedom to grow and bloom and preen in the daylight!

Each sufficient vote in the RFL kiosks gave the voting Fairelander an exclusive skin to reflect their choice, and this is also how the votes were tallied. Altogether by the end of the event the kiosks were around 360,000 lindens, but (and you didn’t hear this from me, it’s a secret!) they might have been (completely accidentally) left out for those who wanted a chance to get the exclusive skins, but couldn’t get to the event, and by the next morning the freed young roses had gathered 202,772 lindens and The Rose’s Tyranny 183,097 lindens, altogether 385,869 lindens. Well done, Faire Folk!

The Rose lost more than her hold over city, she also lost the captured Gardener, who transformed into his highest form to escape the thorns! (And to lead a conga and drive a bus.)

Our last Saturday of the year is naturally busy packed!

The event you don’t want to miss is the Jail & Bail of Clover Dezno and Druscilla Ferraris 8 – 11 AM at The Hill. These two tinies somehow always end up in trouble and get arrested by the Pawlice for… littering, drinking, running with scissors, forcing Faire sponsors into shotgun weddings, take your pick of the charges! Come see what they are accused of this time, and whether the charges will hold! Music for the court case is provided by DJ Gem Sunkiller.

In The Literary Festival we have The Poets’ Plunder 6 – 7 AM, Fantasy Writing Prompts 9 – 10 AM and Speculative Fiction with Simeon Beresford 1 – 2 PM. The LitFest Region Tours travel to The Spirit Pool 12 – 1 PM and to The Rose 6 – 7 PM and 8 – 9 PM. All the Literary Festival events take place in Kakushi Pasu, even the Tours gather there before venturing forth.

The sparkles keep flying in Opal Flight as the dancers stun and amaze Faire Folk! Today we have MaHal 7 -8 AM, Shadows Silhouettes 9 – 10 AM, ChangHigh Trinity Sisters Fireshow 11 AM – 12 PM, The Avilion Merballet Company 1 – 2 PM and Misfit Dance and Performance Art 5 – 6 PM.

While you are in Opal Flight, take a look at our Silent Auction located in there! Great deals and one of a kind items available for your bidding pleasure!

Saturday is the last day for our roleplay storylines. They wrap up their stories in exciting finales and complete their journeys, some of them even with a DJ to provide soundtracks and to party with!

Today finishing their adventures are 10 AM – 12 PM Ynys Seamaide at The Spirit Pool, 12 – 2 PM Outbreak at San Mora, 2 – 4 PM The Lilypods with DJ Zander Greene at Mudrana and 4 – 6 PM Sanctuary with DJ AineMari Flanagan at Raven’s Perch.

The Tyrant’s End: Jail & Bail of Alia Baroque

“Choose The Rose’s Destiny and join me for an event that will change the Soul of a City. Tonight, 28 April at 3 pm slt at The Rose, Fantasy Faire.”
Yours, Alia

Come witness the Story of The Rose unfold before you, come decide the Fate of Alia Baroque, and with him, the Soul of The Rose herself.

Music provided by DJs Zander Greene and David Abbot. Crowd controlled by the Tiny Sheriffs Association. Voting for the Fate taking place through RFL kiosks with exclusive skin prizes: ones to reflect your choice and preference.

Friday, April 28th, 3 PM SLT, at The Rose
The decision is yours.

Meet Our Sponsors: meadowWorks

Garvie Garzo, the creator and owner of meadowWorks.

Garvie Garzo, the creator and owner of meadowWorks, has returned to sponsor the Faire and has also created the statues decorating The Rose. She speaks of her work, her creations for the Faire and her own spectacular Faire-transformations. 

This is your second year sponsoring Fantasy Faire. What made you decide to return and do it again?

Not doing so was unthinkable!

Do you have favourites among your creations or do you love them all equally? Are there themes that you’re more fond of than others, themes that you keep adding to?

I had some issues with a couple of them lol, so yes, I do have favorites. The Leaping Faun sculpture was a pretty joyous occasion from start to finish, (even the UV mapping). I have been wanting to make a dancing faun motif for awhile, so the excuse to have a pair wielding aloft Fantasy Faire emblazoned orbs was the perfect occasion. And the Lions, which were Alia’s idea/request were also a pretty sweet chore.

What are you bringing to the Faire this year? 

Lots of classical sculptures this time to go with The Rose’s Venetian theme… (and because he made me).

Some of these began as 3d scans, captured using photogrammetry which is just the coolest thing! That process, some brilliant software and a few very generous activist type geeks determined to make digital records of the world’s great art pieces allow people like me to truly borrow from the masters. There is a Centaur, Three Pretty Girls, Neptune and of course something to do with swans.

Last year in the Faire you galloped around as a fantastic golden centaur. That is very much what the Faire is all about, when such things become the new normal for all of us. How did the transformation take place? Do you have similar plans for this year?

The centaur idea was a complete steal from 2 fabulously pretty half horse half geishas who galloped past me at the start of the Faire. I really pay little attention to avatars generally, but sometimes you see these great, glorious gestures even. This year so far I have only had time to try some faun legs and some ballet dancing. I am hoping to attract the attention of those cute faun boys I guess.

Other morphologies may present themselves as I get more serious about shopping the Faire.

What are you looking forward to most this year in the Faire?

I’d like to go to more parties and events and meet more people than I usually do. Hell, I would like to go to allllll the parties and events and meet alllll the people

Thank you, Garvie, for taking the time to talk with us! Thank you for bringing life to the Fairelands in the form of your magical statues!

Daily Recap: Thursday

The Rose – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Thursday zoomed by surprisingly fast, how is it possible that the Fairelands have been here for a week already? They just arrived!

There were parties, there was roleplay, there was even a roleplay party as DJ Vasa Vella played for Steelwood’s roleplay at The Hill!

In the Literary Festival there were Fantasy Writing Prompts, a Poetry Surf and Monsters & Myths with Seanchai Library. The Region Tours traveled to San Mora and Chaddul Ro.

Opal Flight entertained Faire Folk not only with the usual stunning dance performances, but also with a special event where the world-builders of Opal Flight — Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis — shared the Story of Opal Flight with the audience. If you missed it, you can read it here!

Friday brings us an early start for our finale weekend!

One of the most anticipated events of the Faire somehow always turns out to be the Jail and Bail of Alia Baroque. Perhaps it’s the two exclusive skins he offers during the event, perhaps it’s the party music the exec DJs bring, or perhaps the Faire Folk simply enjoy seeing the creator of all the Incarnated Fallen Gods tied up, caged, imprisoned or otherwise bound in creative ways. Perhaps it’s the Lack of Shirt as Issued by Her High Faireness.

Regardless of reasons, the event takes place at 3 – 5 PM SLT at The Rose, the party music by DJs Zander Greene and David Abbot!

Before the Jail and Bail we have another amazing event to put you into fittingly fae mindset: Seanan McGuire will read her own work at the Literary Festival in Kakushi Pasu 1 – 3 PM SLT.

Otherwise the Literary Festival will feature Fantasy Writing Prompts 10 – 11 AM and Short Story Discussion Group 3- 4 PM. The LitFest Region Tours will travel to Chaddul Ro 12 – 1 PM and The Spirit Pool 5 – 6 PM and 8 – 9 PM.

The dance performances of the day include The Night Theater 1 – 2 PM, Misfit Dance and Performance Art 5 – 6 PM and Visualive Theatre Re:ON 10 PM – 12 AM. All the shows take place in Opal Flight.

The roleplay in the Fairelands takes place in six different Fairelands: 10 AM – 12 PM Ynys Seamaide at The Spirit Pool, 12 – 2 PM Steelwood at The Hill, 2 – 4 PM The Lilypods at Mudrana, 4 – 6 PM Sanctuary at Raven’s Perch, 6 – 8 PM The NeoVictoria Project’s OOC Party with DJ Gabrielle Riel at Anansi and 8 – 10 PM Outbreak with DJ Hazard at San Mora.

If you didn’t have enough partying with all of that, there’s also DJ Alsedel Llewellyn 9 – 11 AM at The FaireChylde and DJ Madonna Daehlie 1 – 3 PM at Raven’s Perch, come dance with us!

Check either Calendar of Events or Faire Happenings for daily event details!

Meet Our Sponsors: Faida, Kei Spot, Poliak’s Emporium & Velvet Whip

Titania Halasy, the creator and owner of Faida.
Keiko Zoon, the creator and owner of Kei Spot.

Titania Halasy of Faida, Keiko Zoon of Kei Spot, Robbyn Poliak of Poliak’s Emporium and Reeva Hax and Madmacit of Velvet Whip are friends who sponsor the Faire together this year. They share their reasons to support the Faire, their growth as creators, their love for fantasy and their favourite Faire memories.

This is your first year sponsoring Fantasy Faire. What made you decide to become a sponsor?

Titania: I just love the idea of being more involved in such an amazing event. I could name a few people I lost, but I prefer remembering the ones I am lucky to still have on my side because cancer research is doing giant steps. If we are contributing even to an infinitesimal part of that, I can only be happy.

Keiko: One of the things I truly enjoy about creating is the amazing group of artists I have become close to over the years. The Fantasy Faire gives me the opportunity to collaborate and co-sponsor with some of my most favorite people!

Robbyn: Being part of such a large gathering is so much fun and to be able to do it with my family and friends this year makes it all that more exciting. Cancer has affected too many of my loved ones, both 2 legged and 4 legged, so to help raise awareness and funds in my virtual community is an opportunity i couldn’t miss.

Reeva & Madmacit: This is a great event for a much greater cause. After a couple of year as standard participant, it was time to step up a bit and give more.

How did you begin building in Second Life? What inspires you to create?

Titania: It was the far 2008, which in SL it’s like saying it was the 80’s, when I started torturing prims and marveling at how they looked like objects I could use. Ideas and inspiration are easily found all around me, especially since I am surrounded by many creative people, and being able to actually make what I want is a wonderful feeling.

Keiko: I actually came to Second Life for a business meeting and my very first build was a model of one of NASA’s great observatories all in prims. Talk about geek! Three years ago I began learning 3D modeling which is an ever ongoing process. It is my artistic release. I can share the crazy stuff in my head and put it out here in this world for others to use and enjoy.

Robbyn: Wanting to create my own role play wearables and accessories… then furniture and clothing… i found using premade full Perm items wasn’t enough because I still couldn’t make exactly what was in my brain so I began the mind bending process of 3D modeling and fell in love with it. Inspiration comes from my role play environment and often times from real life treasures found while exploring.

Reeva & Madmacit: When it began difficult find things of our liking, related to roleplay & medieval fantasy, we thought to start making them by ourselves. It was so much fun, that after 4 years we’re still here creating stuff 😀 And inspiration comes from everywhere: from a roleplay situation in need of a dedicated prop, to a person searching something particular, to a sudden idea while watching a movie or reading a book.

 What are you bringing to the Faire this year? 

Titania: I am offering two gowns, and I hope they will contribute to the Faire or I will be forced to shred them. (Please buy them, they are 100% donations, save the gowns from a sad destiny)

Faida Artemisia - passione

Faida - Artemisia - nero

Keiko: Our sim is based on a Baroque Venetian masked ball. I play violin (well more fiddle!) and decided to do a violin/flute duet with original music.

Kei's Baroque Violin

Kei's Baroque Flute

Reeva & Madmacit: Something magic and something black 🙂

What calls you to fantasy? When was the first time you encountered the genre and realized you enjoyed it?

Titania: The very first book I read was a fantasy novel, my father is a collector of fantasy and sci-fi books so I was lucky to be raised in a house full with treasures.

Keiko: I’m a fairy tale kind of girl. These kinds of books became my best friends as a child, and the attachment to this kind of magic has never left me.

Robbyn: Some of the most beautiful art I have seen is from the genre and I have enjoyed it all my life. It opens the portal to limitless imagination and the wildest of storylines… I think it’s the unknown that calls me to fantasy.

Reeva & Madmacit: We love fantasy, because there is no limit to your creativity! But regarding the first time… well, that was waay too much time ago to talk about it 😉

Do you have a favourite Faire memory? What are you looking forward to most this year?

Titania: I will never forget the emotion of being accepted as a creator the very first time. I was so overwhelmed by the efforts and the generosity of all the participants! I am already reveling in the same feeling this year, it’s incredible to see so many people selflessly involved! And of course, my hope is to see our past record broken!

Keiko: I cannot wait to see the designs of the sim builders and take a peek inside their imaginations. The sims are always gorgeous and creative and I am sure this year will be the same.

Robbyn: Of course my first year will always hold a special place in my heart, but I already know this year will be the icing on the cake 🙂 I look forward to bonding with current friends and making new ones, and of course, I look forward to all the shopping and art installations.

Reeva & Madmacit: No favorites, as every Faire is special, unique and different. This year we would like it to be even more special, with donations up to the roof!

Thank you, Titania, Keiko, Robbyn, Reeva and Madmacit, for taking the time to talk with us! Thank you for joining us and sharing your creativity with the Faire Folk!

Daily Recap: Wednesday

Opal Flight – picture by Alisaundra Andel

Wednesday brought us Tolkien Day celebrations throughout the day! There was no better place for these events than The Hill by Kilik Lekvoda, which in itself is a remarkable homage to The Shire.

The Literary Festival moved almost completely to The Hill for the day, and started off with Tolkien-related fantasy writing prompts, followed by a live reading of both An Unexpected Party from The Hobbit and A Long-Expected Party from The Fellowship of the Ring, read by Caledonia Skytower and Dubhna Rhiadra.

The reading was a huge success, drawing together over 70 fantasy enthusiasts to simply listen and delight in the words of Tolkien.

After the reading it was time for An Unexpected Party, and for all the elves, dwarves and hobbits to dance! DJ Vasa Vella played party music and because this is the Fairelands, dragons, unicorns and even Sauron himself joined in! If you haven’t seen the Dark Lord of Mordor twerking, you haven’t partied properly!

In the evening Seanchai Library read selections from Tolkien’s work live in voice with the theme of A Walk through Middle Earth, and almost as to mimic this, we also had several LitFest Tours through The Hill to enjoy its peaceful beauty.

Otherwise the day went wonderfully with roleplay, dance performances and DJ parties on the deck of the FaireChylde. We also had a very successful LitFest gathering in Kakushi Pasu for Stories from Rosehaven, previously known as Winterfell.
