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.
And then join us, in the Faerie Circle, to enjoy ColeMarie’s welcoming set at 12 noon SLT, and at 2pm SLT when the Company rides out!
If you have the time, we’ve prepared a questionnaire about the Literary Festival. It’s divided into parts, and shouldn’t take too long to fill in! And it would help us greatly in our planning for next year.
Kilik Lekvoda of Titans and Encaitaron Korobase of Solarium sponsor the Faireland of The Light of Va’loth together. Kilik is the world builder of the region, and shares some of its story with us. They also share their favourite memories, reveal their fantasy forms and Kilik even dances macarena for you!
Bee Dumpling and SolasNaGealai, the creators and owners of Silvan Moon Designs, have sponsored Fantasy Faire for years. They are also behind the beautiful outfits in the DeLuxe HUD of the Fairelands Quest. This year they even taught about creating in mesh in our popular Roleplay Classes! They reminisce about their favourite moments, speak about why they return every year and why being a Fairelander means so much to them.
The Literary Festival at Fantasy Faire ran right through the 2019 event … and beyond!
We had poetry prompts and open mics sessions, guest readers (including our Guest of Honour, Elizabeth Bear), a dramatic performance in Overtroll, and, of course, the LitFest Tours (also known as The Company of Faire Folk Rides Out). We even had a Book Table which helped you purchase the books of authors who had appeared here!
