Meet Our Sponsors: Merchants of Dreams

􀀀

Sweetgwendoline Bailey of ~*Sweet Revolutions*~  and Eldowyn Inshan of United InshCon form together Merchants of Dreams, the duo behind the design and build of Sylvan of Spells, the sim they are also sponsoring. They now share the backstory of the sim and what it means to them to be building a Faireland once more.

You two are both sponsoring Fantasy Faire and building one of the Fairelands: Sylvan of Spells. What made you decide to join, sponsor and contribute?

Eldo: It is a wonderful idea to create a Faire that is charitable. It also gives me great pleasure to support this good cause.

Gwen: There are several good reasons for me to support the Fantasy Faire. Cancer is an evil disease, which might hit everyone of us. It doesnt matter of age, confession, social or ethnic background. Affected people and their families have to face this disease out of a sudden and need to deal with all struggles that come along. Knowing that we as merchants in SL are able to support the RFL foundation is the main reason for me to join, trying to help affected people at least a very little.

Personally I have already lost very dear ones to cancer. Good friends of mine passed away at very young age already and last, but not least I also lost my beloved grandma to cancer as well. None of us knew about her serious disease, just 2 weeks before she passed away, we did celebrate her birthday, laughed, planning a vacation in fall, but sadly life had other plans. I do know,that SL is just a little part of our lives, but I like to take the chance and opportunity to support the Fantasy Faire with my building skills and creativity. If any of that helps to cheer people up, brighten up their lives, make them forget about bad things, I feel honored to do so.

How was Sylvan of Spells born? What inspired it, what is its story?

Gwen: Last year we designed the Fantasy Faire sim “Heavenslough”, it has been our first year as world creators and we were so nervous, but also happy for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing community. We never expected that this will happen again and so we feel honored that Elizabeth asked us again to create one of the Fantasy Faire sims for this year.

Therefor I would like to tell this little story:

Last year, Runa and Eldo did scare me. They both said that they have to talk serious to me and that we have to clear something out. My first thought was… Oh hell what have I done? I supposed they both were angry with me. After a bunch of seconds they both started laughing and told me that we have the honor to create a sim for the Fantasy Faire.

So this year I took the chance for a little revenge *evil grin*
After Elizabeth contacted me and asked if we want to create a sim for this year’s Fantasy Faire again, I called Eldo. I told her to sit down and take a deep breath. She asked me what happened and I knew this was the right time to pay back to her.

I told her to be very brave now and that we have to clear something. She took a deep breath and asked what happened. I did wait a few seconds but couldn´t hold back and told that Elizabeth contacted me and asked if we want to create a sim for the upcoming Fantasy Faire.
Right at once we started brainstorming and “Sylvan of Spells” was born.

Story – Sylvan of Spells:

In a far away land, inbetted of huge mountains, peacefully lies the “Sylvan of Spells”, a magical forest full of shy and mystic creatures and peculiar vegetation. Old tales tell about a powerful magician, who lived in a huge pompous library far in the west. It has been his quest to protect the other residents due to the power of the four elements and to spread their words and stories into the rest of the world, so their myths was kept alive.

The stories told about huge trees with roots as large, that people could live in them and about grasses with luminous runes dancing in the wind and filing the meadows. About flying creatures with wings of book pages, easily mistaken for a common butterfly at first sight and from shining lights, wandering across the lake with its isles, playing a smooth melody which cast a spell over anyone listening.

But one day in happened, that the magician disappeared and so did the ancient book of knowledge and the four crystals of elements. The stories and wisdoms of “Sylvan of Spells” vanished, the knowledge about the powerful source of the elements got lost. Only a few myths kept alive.

Are you prepared to find the lost crystals of elements? Are you brave enough to plunge into the infinity of magic spells and to unleash the 4 elements? It is time to start your journey, start the adventure about the “Sylvan of Spells”…

What are you bringing to the Faire this year? 

Eldo: I built a small library and created a few little items that will certainly be to the guests liking. Unfortunately I have been lacking time to create more as I was completely absorbed with the build up of the Faire Sim. ^^

Gwen: This year I added the four elements fire, water, air and earth into my creations and started a new line of trees, decoration and roleplay stuff. Also the literature and music theme is a part of the new line, as you will find Flying Book Moth and Flying Music Souls.

What is the best thing about building in Second Life? Which things inspire you, make you happy and satisfied when creating?

Eldo: You can fulfill your dreams in a way that would never be possible RL. For example: a talking duck in battle armour that requests road toll.

It makes me happy to create things that people use for their RP; e.g. : a medieval lawn mower – a sheep with a drivable box

Gwen: Building in SL means more to me, than just stacking prim cubes. Every building is created and based on a idea, a fantasy. Every creation carries feelings and memories, has a soul of its own.

The medieval and fantasy theme is fascinating me. It feels like to plunge into a world of secret mysteries and darkness, it allows me to create my own fantasies and stories.

Also I feel happy to watch people using my creations, see them exploring, and roleplaying with them, to see them in a new content. I feel good by making others happy with my creations, no matter if for roleplay or goofy objects, like my creation of a rideable truffle pig.
To build in SL allows me to take part in the life of others, and allow others to take part in my life. I feel at peace then.

What are your favourite fantasy realms? 

Eldo: Games of Thrones, Vikings, Lord of the Rings, Hobbits,
The Physician (Der Medicus), – my Quack set for RP is based on this movie.

Gwen: I love the medieval and fantasy theme. Books from Wolfgang Hohlbein, Alfred Bekker, Brandon Sanderson, Cornelia Funke, Anne Rice and also a lot of movies and series like Pans Labyrynth, Never Ending Story, Momo, The Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Brother Grimm (the old fairytales of my childhood) , they all inspire me.

Also the Roleplay in Second Life does. They lure me into a complete different world for hours, let me be someone else and that is something you cannot explain, you have to feel it yourself :-)

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

Eldo: The wonderfully beautiful memorials, that have been created for families and people who suffered a tragic loss. My wish is for the Fair to be as successful this year as it was last year.

Gwen: There is no special favourite Faire memory to me. To be a part of this wonderful community, to meet such creative and dear people from all over the world, to share time with them by a “unicorn hug” or “coffee and chocolate sessions” is just amazing. To see, how the Fairelands grow from desert areas overflow with flamingos into different amazing world is pure pleasure to me. All of this together builds my favorite memory.

Thank you, Eldo and Gwen, for taking the time to talk with us. Thank you for bringing Sylvan of Spells to life and for providing such a fitting place for sharing stories in!

Meet Our Sponsors: Roawenwood

searlait
Searlait Nitschke, the creator and owner of Roawenwood, the designer and builder of Tangleshimmer Grove.

Searlait Nitschke, the owner and creator of Roawenwood and the designer and builder of Tangleshimmer Grove, shares with us the story of Tangleshimmer Grove, how her Faire builds evolve and tell their own story and her favourite Faire memory involving a certain bus and a stairway to heaven.

You are both sponsoring and building a Faireland this year again. Does it get any easier in time, or does the challenge grow bigger every year?

Each year is a little different. Each year I have something of a challenge to overcome that ends up making it a little crazier towards the deadlines whether it is SL related, personal, or something to do with the build. One of the bigger challenges for me is always trying to decide the feel of the sim or what I’m trying to project. That can be the toughest part.

Tangleshimmer Grove JustenTyme003

How was Tangleshimmer Grove born? What inspired it, what is its story?

Tangleshimmer Grove has its own story. It has its own feeling and its own life. Whenever I build for the Faire my ultimate goal is for it to feel like it has its own life somehow.

My first Faire sim was cold, not dark really because it had its light elements, and color but it was in that bitterly cold part of winter that I like. The theme was magical, trying to get across the magic of that bitter cold. Finding the beauty even when it feels like we are gripped within places that are so cold you can hear the creaking of the branches. The next year was definitely dark. Burned out dead type forest, ominous lighting, gypsy camps… recovery. The theme was living through the dark parts, finding the safe places, dancing around the campfire with music playing, finding solace and regrowth in the dark. The journey. Finding hope.

FF2015 - Tangleshimmer Grove_010

Tangleshimmer Grove started out conceptually as a fun, light place where fairies, woodland folk and others took up residence. Full of color, and life. It was me in a way following a progression. I felt like it was time to come out of the dark, to come out of the cold, and to breathe life into something brighter. In essence it felt like it was time for spring to come to the world. Time for the light to break through.

As I was building it… it took something of a turn. Real life crept in and began to color the world I was trying to create. My world as I knew it was changing and with that so did the sim .

I am not a technical builder. I don’t draw a plan and go from point A to point B. I rarely have a real plan to begin with. When I am creating it is by instinct, feel, and inspiration, especially when it is something like this.

FF2015 - Tangleshimmer Grove_006

Without my realizing it the sim began to take shape and form into something much more personal, I knew I wanted the sim to capture something different this year than before however I didn’t realize it was going to end up where it did. Initially I wanted it to shimmer with playfulness with a nod towards remembering the wonder we felt as children imagining trolls under bridges and fairies floating in sunbeams .

But it became a safe place instead. A sanctuary. Without meaning to I drew elements from my own personal need to find some peace and brought it to the Faire. The flow of the river, the colors… the softness of the ground and grass beneath my feet. Each space has its own feel. Each area has its own vegetation or color combinations that you won’t find elsewhere on the sim. I layered different looks, and plucked the flowers lovingly placing them in different places with floating butterflies or the quick blink of a firefly.

Tangleshimmer Grove has its fairy rings, it has its light, it has its color, its life but most of all it has its peace. When walking the Grove I feel at home as if the trees surrounding it shield us with their thick roots and leafy canopy letting the light dance about protecting those within it from the things outside of its borders that we can’t always control.

Tangleshimmer Grove is meant to make you slow down. Appreciate the quiet. Breathe in the light. Meditate or muse as the water flows from one side to the other shimmering. To take a few precious moments to spend with someone you care about. It is meant to be something more intimate. In essence it is in its own way an extension of what I hope others will find. The small little spots of beauty, the surprises of color… to take a moment, slow down, to remember. It seemed fitting considering the message and hope we have when doing something like the Faire and for RFL so I went with it.

Tangleshimmer Grove JustenTyme002

What are you bringing to the Faire this year?

As per usual my time was mainly caught up with working on the sim. I always intend to create something fantastic to put into the RFL vendors and rarely do I feel like I am able to. This year I added the mushrooms and fairy rings to the RFL vendors so people could take a piece of the Faire home. I also added a gacha to benefit RFL with a set of mushroom seats, and special fairy rings with cuddles & dances in it. I also shrunk down the smallest store and made a little townhouse type thing for petites that’s in the RFL vendors.

What is the best thing about building in Second Life? Which things inspire you, make you happy and satisfied when creating?

For me it’s mostly a really great outlet. To be creative. To build something from nothing. Gives me a lot of satisfaction that is relatively easy to get. Rather addictive in its own way. I suppose the best thing about building in Second Life for me is seeing how my work evolves and changes over time.

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

Favorite Faire memory…. I have a lot. I think one that is particularly telling and a lot of fun was a moment during last year’s bus tour. For those that don’t know every year something of a tradition we climb onto a bus and do a big tour of all the sims a few times.

Last year Alia built a stairway that was supposed to go straight up to heaven right? So we’re doing the bus tour… round and around, driver cussing as usual trying to do sim crossings. Trying to drive over some really awkward spots on the sims…. And so we end in the courtyards at the base of this massive, and rather thin set of stairs heading up into the sky.

We can do this right? Drive up it… we’re all pumped up, we can do this, we can do this. So revving up the engine we go for it. Quite a few times stopping at the base, punching it to go up and each…. Time…. Off the side we go flying down into the pits below, laughing, screaming and joking. If I remember right there was some lava. Nice touch there.

Stairway
The Bus Going Up the Stairs – Picture by Sonya Marmurek

Sooooooo what do we do? The ingenious builder types we are along with a bit of a deviant streak?

We cheat!

Driver… Alia I believe at the time comes in with ye olde handy builde tools and picks up the bus, moves us upwards… inch by inch till we’re balancing precariously at the very top of the stairs! We made it! We turn, looking around from our new vantage point at the world below us very proud of our accomplishment. We were not going to be stopped. So then there is the going down part…. The bus looks down the steep stairs as we rock back and forth driver at the wheel.

And wouldn’t you know it? Going DOWN we stayed on the straight and narrow never once falling off to the side as if the stairs were made for us. Typical huh? What do you get when you a bunch of smartarsed Fantasy Faire workers/builders and the like try to drive their way up to the gates of heaven? Multiple gut wrenching drops into lava pools. Drive away from the gates of heaven and downwards towards hell? No problem, couldn’t have driven it straighter.

Looking forward to most? Playing, talking, relaxing, catching up with friends. I miss people very much during the year and sometimes it seems like the only time we really catch up or take the time to see each other is during the Faire. That’s what I look forward to.

Thank you, Searlait, for taking the time to talk with us. Thank you for bringing your evolving story to the Fairelands, thank you for the sanctuary within them.

Meet Our Sponsors: ORIONITE

ProfilePicture
Shenai Orionite and Angelon Orionite, the creators of ORIONITE.

Shenai Orionite and her partner Angelon join and sponsor the Faire the first time this year with their store ORIONITE. Shenai shares with us their reasons for this decision, their love for the Faire and their beginnings as builders. 

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

A few reasons immediately come to mind:

1. Whenever we can, we try to contribute to the charity “Relay for Life.” Cancer impacts us all in some way or another and RFL has made it so easy to be a part of supporting and helping to find a cure for this devastating disease, that we will do our part to help whenever we have the opportunity.

2. We love Second Life, Fantasy and the Fantasy Faire and are grateful for the opportunity to help sponsor one of SL’s best annual events. Last year was our first time attending the Fantasy Faire and we knew right away that we wanted to see it happen again year after year as it brought so much joy to everyone we met.

Lastly, since we’ve gotten into the spirit of fantasy, we ‘re bringing some sexy, haute and exciting fantasy and steam punk inspired clothing for our current clothing project for the Blue Galaxian Feline (made by Ash Soyinka.) We’re so excited to bring a new look to our line of items and we hope you enjoy wearing and roleplaying in them as much as we do.

Optional Picture

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

We’ve been dabbling and exploring the idea of creating in SL since late 2007. I can still remember spending countless hours at the colleges of scripting and primitives or in sandboxes watching home creators bend prims into insane shapes. It was captivating and exciting and I knew then that I wanted to get involved somehow.

As new technology has become available and we somehow have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to spend time learning our hobby craft, we decided to take the leap into the ever changing, and exciting world of 3D art and finding our place in some great online communities.

As far as inspiration to create, (chuckles a bit) the more accurate question for us would be what doesn’t inspire us to create? We have a natural creative tension that let’s us find motivation for creating and pushing ourselves to the next level everyday. We tend to draw inspiration from our unique and different cultural experiences or beautiful things we have seen during our travels, watching different movies and playing games together, and I’ve found a lot of inspiration just from exploring the amazingly vast and various SL communities as they offer so much visual art and inspiration.

What are you bringing to the Faire this year? Give us some sneak peeks or teasers!

We are bringing steampunk inspired couture texture mods and add-ons that make use of the Orionite clothing system. We’ve got some cute items that are easy to mix and match to create a variety of fun looks.

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

The genre of of fantasy is such a great genre since it encompasses so many sub genres of speculative fiction, from medieval and steam punk fantasy all the way to world building and science-fantasy! There are so many fun things to create within this genre, it’s easy to fall in love with it.

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

Besides exploring all of the gorgeously created sims and wandering through each one to visit each shop to see the amazing creations…we just loved going on the hunt! The cut scenes and voice overs were fantastically fun and the hints were just right – not too easy and not too difficult either. We had a blast running around looking for things.

This year, we are just so pleased to be a sponsor for such a great cause with a hard-working support team backing up this event. We tip our hats to them and look forward to having a chance to relax and enjoy the Faire together.

Thank you, Shenai, for taking the time to talk with us. Thank you, Shenai and Angelon for joining us in the Fairelands!

Meet Our Sponsors: Spyralle

Kerryth Tarantal, the creator of Spyralle, with her WindRider Monsoon set.

Kerryth Tarantal, the creator of Spyralle, returns to sponsor the Faire and shares with us her reasons to relay and speaks of the evolution of her work and the directions she is taking it. 

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

There was never any doubt in my mind that I would do it again, if I possibly could. About a year ago just before Fantasy Faire, I lost my father. He had many health issues, but it was cancer that ultimately took his life and caused him much suffering. I know that this fight against cancer is also a fight to reduce that kind of suffering, and it is very much my fight. I am a three-time cancer survivor, I’ve had a couple of bad scares in the last year (so far, so good, thank heaven!), and every year is a gift I try to give back in some small way. Equally important is the Faire itself – from the breathtaking art of it to the incredible community that has grown within it. It is a lot of hard work, but it is also gloriously fun and delightful, and I simply love being a part of it. The day Fantasy Faire radio kicked on, I felt such a rush of rejoicing. It felt like both a celebration and a homecoming.

Is there anything tying your work together concept-wise? Do all your creatures live in the same world, do they have additional stories with them, do you imagine something larger binding them together or are they all separate creations?

Month to month, most of my work is individual creations, usually driven by event themes. But one of the things I love about Fantasy Faire is that I can pursue private visions, as long as they’re fantasy, which is a universe without bounds. There are a couple of what I would call “emerging visual trends” in my work, especially for the Faire, that I can see most clearly looking back, Both Thornweaver, my 2013 project, and Waverider, my 2014 project, were stages of this journey. Several months ago I realized these trends dovetail perfectly with unfinished fragments of fantasy writing I did long ago – not so much a back story as a general cultural context – a world that is feral and savage and also aetherial and beautiful. I’m also seeing the influence of certain visual inspirations I’ve had tucked away in my memory for years that I am finally figuring out how to reconcile with the fractal art that is the backbone of Spyralle. This year’s project is very much on that trajectory and much more intentional than in the past, now that I have a clearer idea of where I’m going.

WindRider Coromell

What are you bringing to the Faire this year? Give us some sneak peeks or teasers!

Last year I began two projects, Waverider and Windrider, but only Waverider was ready by Faire time. Windrider waited quietly, brewing in my brain, until I could come back to it. In the year between, Windrider has moved in the direction of the emerging themes I mentioned – wilder, more strident. This year I am a much better at creating mesh, so I can reach farther and do more justice to what I picture in my mind. Windrider is not an outfit but separate unisex pieces that I hope people will combine with elements from other sources to build their own costumes. It is so exciting to see the looks people put together! I’m also releasing the last group of a series of fantasy gowns representing the months of the year.

Do you have favourites in your vast collection of work you have done here? Any specific creations that you are extremely fond and proud of? Or do you love them all equally?

My favorite is whatever I’ve been working on most recently.

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

I’m simply looking forward to being there. Once I’m set up and ready, I always have a wonderful time simply hanging out, exploring, shopping, looking at all the wonderful art. It’s like a vacation in an enchanted country.

Thank you, Kerryth, for taking the time to talk with us. Thank you for bringing your visionary creations to the Faire!

Meet Our Sponsors: The Lost Unicorn Gallery

Natalie_portrait
Natalie Montagne, the owner of the Lost Unicorn Gallery.

Natalie Montagne, the owner of the Lost Unicorn Gallery, shares what it is like to own and curate an art gallery in Second Life, what made her become a sponsor of Fantasy Faire and what she loves most about fantasy.

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

I’ve always loved everything about Fantasy Faire, from its amazing support of Relay For Life to all the original creations designers make just for the Faire; from the unbelievable builds of the sims created especially for the event to the overall spirit and lively atmosphere Fantasy Faire creates in all of us that love it. What’s not to like?

I’ve been in SL for almost ten years now. After owning several homes and then a lovely fantasy forest sim for several years, I started The Lost Unicorn Gallery just last July. I love it and finally feel I have a way of contributing to the Faire. Relay For Life is also very near and dear to my heart as I’ve known several who have fought or passed on from cancer. I am also a breast cancer survivor myself of three years, so anything I can do to help stop this tragic disease, even in some small way, is a good thing.

Inside the Gallery

What made you decide to start a fantasy art gallery in Second Life? How is it like running one?

I’ve always had a love for artwork picturing faeries, elves, unicorns, dragons and many other fantasy characters…I’m drawn to them. I’m also a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings series and anything in that realm. I enjoy the beauty of all kinds of fantasy art and have also always enjoyed taking pictures in Second Life.

I heard there was a large Second Life community within Flickr so I joined back in 2009. After that, the rest was history as they say! I was amazed to find all the gorgeous and exceptional talent on the site, especially seeing Second Life pictures edited and brought to life like they were. Of course when mesh came along, it all got even better. I began getting more involved in taking pictures myself. I also opened a fantasy sim called Elven Realm in 2010 and housed a small gallery above the sim. After all the time I’d been in SL, I had finally found my niche. I just love discovering new artists and beautiful artwork to share with others. I display the work of artists who are not well known, up and coming artists and tenured to give them all the exposure they deserve. The added benefit is I get to enjoy walking the gallery every day if I wish to view all the talent that makes the gallery gorgeous!

Inside the Gallery

Curating the gallery is something I truly love to do. Yes, it can be hard work, especially with artist exhibits held once a month along with monthly events and gallery rotations. However, it’s work I love to do! I have really enjoyed working with the group of 39 artists who show in the gallery (I rotate their work every 2 months), they are all wonderful and very supportive. Many have become great friends. I’m very passionate, particular and detail-oriented about what I do, but love every minute of it.

What are you bringing to the Faire this year?

We normally don’t sell pictures at the main gallery, they are on display only for the enjoyment of guests. The artists had the option to sell, but decided not to at this time. Selling their work at Fantasy Faire is a first, but they were so excited and happy to do it for Relay For Life. Either the artist or I chose one picture for each to sell in the store we have at Faire. 100% of all sales from all of the pictures will go directly to Relay For Life.

The gallery is also sponsoring the May Day Masked Ball on May 1.

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

I’ve loved fantasy since I was very young. I grew up loving faerie tales, unicorns and anything magical. I’ve also had a great love for writing stories and drawing since I was little. I love creating things and using my imagination. As they say, every picture tells a story and I believe this is true. I have incorporated this theme in the gallery with books and reading nooks throughout. I am drawn to the beauty of fantasy art and all it entails. My goal is to share this beauty with others and at the same time show off the talents of so many deserving artists.

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

I think my favorite memory or what I always think of when Faire comes around another year is the upbeat and lively mood of all those involved and who attend. Its almost the feeling of Christmas with all the shops, events, music on the sims, what everyone is wearing, crowds and overall spirit. This year I’m more excited than I’ve ever been since I’m a part of it all!

Thank you, Natalie, for taking the time to talk with us. Thank you for bringing more magic into the Fairelands!
