The Company of Faire Folk will be riding out again today to explore the Looking Glass in the first of our special off-season LitFest Tours – at the slightly more Euro-friendly time of 2pm SLT.

And there is an extra event ahead of this at 12noon SLT as ColeMarie Soleil plays a very special music set in the Looking Glass Woods, in the beautiful Faerie Circle. ColeMarie will be playing an artistic set filled daydreaming music, filled with whimsy.

The Company of Faire Folk will assemble in the Woods afterwards, and then explore the Looking Glass region, home of the Worldmakers, Sharni Azalee and Marcus Inkpen, creators of such fabulous Fairelands as Dark Mirage, Lotus Valley Dream, Ichi-go Ichi-e, Lucentia, Dawn’s Promise, The Spirit Tree … and many more!

You can see images of all of them here, on our earlier post about the Company riding out, and learn about Marcus and Sharni’s wonderful creations at Fantasy Faire.

From there we will ride out (or walk) and explore The Looking Glass, the home of the Worldmakers, Sharni Azalee and Marcus Inkpen.

If there’s sufficient demand, the Faire Folk will ride out again at 2pm on Sunday 10th November.

LitFest Tours 2019
LitFest Tours 2019

The popular LitFest Tours run every day throughout Fantasy Faire, leaving daily at 5.00pm from the LitFest region to explore the Fairelands.

And now the Company of Faire Folk are going to be starting a series of off-season Tours to visit places around the Grid.

Our plan is to begin by visiting the homes of the Worldmakers and other people involved in the Faire, and to see what they are up to between Faires!

The Tours will be on Fridays at 5pm SLT. A location to meet will be chosen and share with the Company of Faire Folk Second Life group, and also published on this blog.

We even had a Book Table which helped you purchase the books of authors who had appeared here!

Memoirs of a Little Cat

Memoirs of a Little Cat
by Jillycakes Witchybean
(Moonbeam Jillybean)

For over two weeks, each night the little cat was magically whisked away to meet with other critters, human and fey folk. They gathered at twilight and toured worlds! Wondrous worlds filled with sorcery, mystical sights and music! Each world was so different from the last. Some nights, if one was lucky, they might catch a glimpse of the creator of such a marvelous place and learn of the thoughts and ideas of the creations.
