This year’s Fantasy Faire will include ten lavishly landscaped shopping sims created by some of the top designers in Second Life. While each sim will have a unique feel to it, please think of the sims as not individual themed countries but as one connected Fairelands, a Fantasy continent. Whether your style be fairytale or mer, fae or gothic you will find yourself at home on several, if not all, the sims.
