The Fantasy Faire Hope House in Ardessa

Last night a very special party took place in Ardessa! While the lovely DJ Nuala was playing awesome tunes for the enthusiastic crowd, behind her something amazing was happening…

On top of the rocks in (the beautiful land of ) Ardessa a Fantasy Hope House appeared a true virtual Hope Hostel.

My return to the Fairelands Junction

Every year, since I discovered the Fantasy Faire in 2011, the realm I always go to when I am working on pictures or blogposts, or just want to sit and think is The Fairelands Junction by Saiyge Lotus.

It is not only the place where you will find the portals to the Fairelands, but also the Wordlings and it is the home of the Wall of Remembrance. Every year it is there and every year it looks different, but feels the same. Like home, a place of comfort.

Faire Folk, Parties and other exciting events!

It is probably not a secret that I love to dance and party in Second Life and when it is that time of year, ya know…The Fantasy Faire, I spend a lot of my online time partying on the Fairelands!

Since the opening of the Faire I have been to parties (of course!), a short story discussion in the Hall of Story and the Jail and Bail of Jessica Lyon. All occasions where wonderful and the good news is: you can go to parties and/or events every day – a good time is guaranteed!

In case you are not sure (I can’t imagine, but okay), I’ve taken some photographic and video evidence!

Are you ready to party?

Besides exploring the Fairelands, shopping for the latest outfits, accesories and furniture (you name it, it is available in a shop!), literary and roleplay events, the Fantasy Faire is also known for its more than awesome parties!

This year our dragon-borne party ship, The FaireChylde, will be the place to be in Second Life with a TEN DAYS DJ Dance party. Actually, The FaireChylde even got his own page on this site – including a party-schedule. So basically you have NO reason to not party on the Faire!

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.

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!’
