The Fantasy Faire in 4 minutes

My last blogpost on this site for this year, I am a bit sad the Faire has ended, but …I am also grateful to have been a part of it. Two weeks of awesomeness, amazing Fairelands and wonderful people. The places, the parties, the adventures, it should be enough to last for a year and look forward to next spring.

The Fairelands are gone, to their mystical place and though I will miss them it is good as it is.

See you next Spring and for now, please enjoy the memories we all made. I’ve made a 4 minute overview of most of The Faire, hope you like it!

Love ❤

The Party That Did Not Happen

‘When your back’s to the wall
When you’re starting to fall
You got something to lean on
Love is everything’

The end-party of the Fantasy Faire, a gathering of all Fairefolk and party-peeps from allover the grid, did not happen this year.
It was not held on The Rose, and certainly not in the pool. 78+ or more people did not dance and there was no fun. Nope. Nothing. Happened.

And no, I did not film anything. Nada.

Why I love you all

With the Fantasy Faire 2017 nearing its end, we still have some days/hours to wander around the amazing sims and keep making memories of yet another wonderful event.

One of the things, the many things, I love from being part of the Faire is: you all. The Fairefolk. The elves, the dragons, the tinies, the monsters, the wizards, the humans, the furries, the poets, the builders, the hosts, the performers…..everyone. Without you all, there would be no Fantasy Faire.

FF 2017 - San Mora - III
San Mora

I will miss the ongoing 24/7 groupchat, because even though I did not always actively participated in chats, I had the window open and read most of it.
The other night I had time to chat and somehow it ended in an impromptu Gangnam Style party on San Mora, thanks to all who showed up and danced with me!
One of my favourite memories of the Fantasy Faire 2017 was made that night and I have a video to prove it!

I will be around for as long as the Fairelands are here, so no goodbye yet from me, but a ‘see you on the Faire!’

FF 2017 - Dawns Promise - IV
Dawns Promise

Once upon a time…

….an angry god caused a huge flood. The giant wave destroyed civilizations, extinguished mythical creatures, and washed off all colour on the surface of the earth….

FF2017 - Opal Flight - V
The Underwater Art Gallery

And so begins the story of Opal Flight, the place for Art and Entertainment on the Fairelands, created by Haveit Neox and Lillia Artis. (read this interview with these great builders, for the rest of the story!)

Opal Flight is that place you go to and dive underwater to enjoy the art, the fish and the colours.  A perfect spot to unwind after exploring and/or partying or to float about when waking up!

Oh and in case you think you need to hurry, as today is the last day of the Fantasy Faire: fear not, here is a surprise!

Even though our planned programming is ending with a six hour closing party on Monday, May 1 from 1-7pm SLT, there is no reason to be sad because we have the Fairelands to roam around until THURSDAY the 4th of May!

As long as the Fairelands are here, the quest is playable and shopping and exploring encouraged!
Event times and places

Silent Auction ends on Monday, 3 PM SLT

Live Auction on Sunday, 2 – 4 PM SLT in Opal Flight

It’s a tradition and: A Sweet Ride!

One of the most hilarious traditions on the Fantasy Faire is: the tour with the bus over the Fairelands.
Every year, skilled and certified bus-driver,  Alia Baroque welcomes all who dare…err…want,  to  his bus for a special tour around the Faire. A wonderful way to enjoy the scenery and have a look at all the amazing places from your comfortable seat in the vehicle.

FF 2017 - It's a Sweet Ride - II

Last night the first tour was scheduled, how fitting: on #worldpenguinday and I was one of the lucky passengers to get a seat!

We departed from The Rose and ̶t̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶c̶r̶a̶s̶h̶e̶d̶ ̶i̶n̶t̶o̶ ̶,  arrived at Dawns Promise for a short break. After that refreshing pause we got to see the wonders of The Hills where Alia The Penguin t̶h̶r̶e̶w̶ ̶u̶s̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶u̶s̶ ̶m̶i̶d̶a̶i̶r̶, let us wander about a bit to have a good look. Amazing sim!

FF 2017 - It's a Sweet Ride - I

Did you know Raven’s Perch looks absolutely delightful  from a 90 degrees view? Recommended!

Unfortunately I was not able to sit out the entire tour d̶u̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶a̶i̶r̶ ̶s̶i̶c̶k̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ because of an important meeting and I had to jump off on Chaddul Ro.

If you have time, and see the bus passing by, hop on and do the tour, it is: A Sweet Ride!

Sunday musings, for all those who relay

‘Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.

It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin’
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love
In the spring becomes the rose’

Bette Middler – The Rose

Morbus…the Quest

‘The Bard Queen’s Song takes you to Morbus, where the Unweaver’s twisted power has turned beauty into chaos and nature against itself. Search among the thorns, avoid the twisted denizens and then on into the Alchemist’s tower to ……’

Morbus is the place to do the Quest…a dark place only to be entered by the brave ones; the explorers on a mission.

FF 2017 - Morbus - III

Are you brave and fierce enough to wander around this grim and desolate place, doing the FF 2017 quest?
I salute you, oh fearless Fairefolk!

Slurl to Morbus
