The Beauty of Blue

I was wandering again. Aside from the Big Events, this year, I travelled the Great Faire mostly in one disguise or another. It was fun, and somewhat easier, as I was not in a mind to deal with other beings overmuch, and frankly, there are plenty of other Fae Queens at the Faire: my celebrity is mercurial, just like me (and just like them!)

There was no better place to wander this year’s Faire than Wandering Woods. And although as Wandering places go, it was rather orderly, what makes a place is not always its stunning architecture, or its defining features; no, what makes a place is the light.

From The Candles To The Stars

From Davi:

I … woke up like this. I’ve learned not to ask how these things happen. I’ve learned not to speculate about the reasons behind them, the physics, the wherefores and whatevers. But often, no matter what predicament I find myself in, there is a definite why.

The Candle Path

In this case, and at this time, it seemed there was a place the Faire wanted me to see.

Recap: Auctions

Her High Faireness Elizabeth Tinsley as the Queenie, FantasyFaire

The final weekend of this year’s Faire is now over, and that means that both Silent and Live Auction are now wrapped as well.

Silent Auction ended on Saturday after a tense quick-clicking combat and brought over 500,000 lindens into the RFL kiosk.

Sunday was spent in the marathon of excitement that is known as the Live Auction. Build sets to make yourself a Faireland, already-familiar-and-loved landmarks from the Fairelands and highlights of the Faire were auctioned off in heated bidding wars and the RFL kiosk barely held itself up with the 2,347,688 linden dollars that were poured into it by the end of the evening.

Somewhere during the auction the threshold to 20 million lindens was broken, and not much later, 21 million lindens. Guess that 21 for 21 was not just about the amount of regions! We are currently at 21,578,147 linden dollars relayed to Relay For Life and American Cancer Society. That is 86,312 US dollars. 

There are no words grand enough for that statement. We need to come up with new ones. So, that’s Faire work! Thank you, Fairelanders.

Days of the Faire Banner Collection, Part One

Do you love the Fairelands? Do you wish you could simply buy Faire mementos of reasonable price without having to go into bidding wars or games of chance with gacha? We have a solution for you: The Days of the Faire Banners. Each banner was created by Alia Baroque to feature as the header of our website, and they showcase the splendor of the Fairelands of this year as captured by our talented photographers: Sunny Difference, Sachi (Vix Zhou), Wildstar Beaumont, JustenTyme, and Sukubia Scarmon.

Since we have twenty one Fairelands this year, this is only Part One of the collection. The second part will be released for the Relay Weekend (June 12-13) where Fantasy Faire has its own campsite. 

The Days of the Faire Banner Collection is available in Paer Thura.
