Pets of the Fairelands – Lil Cyclops

Helena Stringer - Fantasy Faire 2016 - Pets of the Fairelands - Lil Cyclops

Here I am again, bringing you more little collectables, for you avatar or home. Fantasy Faire always has little pets and creatures you can find, created by the various designers at the event.

My pick today is from Avatar Bizarre. They have created this little Cyclops shoulder sitter, for your avatar to wear.

He looks like he would be fairly content, sitting up on your shoulder, judging everyone with that one big, all seeing eye. Maybe he would whisper in your ear, the secrets he learns by observing.

The Cyclops is only L$50 and you can find him sitting on a bench at the entrance of the Avatar Bizarre booth.

Waiting

“Knowing someone isn’t coming back
doesn’t mean you ever stop waiting”
― Toby Barlow

A few years ago I ran into the above quote and it is true. I, for one, never stop waiting. Even while knowing better.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, it is – for me – something that keeps memories alive. Happy memories. And good thoughts.
Fantasy Faire 2016 - Fairelands Junction - I

Anyway, speaking of memories! My first stop at the Fairelands is always the Fairelands Junction, specifically The Wall of Remembrance, by Saiyge Lotus. Every year I find it a place of peace, pondering, memories and yes, perhaps…waiting.

The Junction is not only the place where all the portals are to enter the Fairelands, but also a place to come back to.

The Wall will not only be my first stop but will also be the last I visit before the Fairelands will dematerialise again, this coming Sunday.

For now I will keep enjoying it, just like the other lands and keeping the good memories. And smile.

 

 

 

A Vacation to the Fairelands

After his 315th video game, as an extra on level 14, with designation number 5134, Thembones decided it was time for a vacation. His girlfriend, Banshee, worked in the same game, she was on level 2, with a designation number of 72. How she landed that, he will never know. It was probably the fact that she was a screamer. They were not the easiest to find. Most of the time your jaw rots off, after hobbling around as much as they did.

Thembones headed to “HR”, haha, that always made him laugh, which was an unmarked grave at the back of the level 1 map.

Samantha, a perky little NPC that was dressed up as a cheerleader, answered his knock at the gravestone, thrusting her arm up out of the loose dirt, and grabbing his good leg and pulling. He felt such theatrics were better served for the game itself, but he wasn’t the one running the show, so who was he to judge.

“Bob! What are you doing here? Need another bolt put in that hip of yours?”

“Uggg marawable mump ogglet.”

“Oh, I know your name, you know I like pulling your leg, figuratively at least. Don’t actually want to pull it, since you seem to have such a hard time keeping it on. What brings you down to my unhallowed hovel?”

“Mrargle ugg grwaaaa.”

“A vacation you say . . . . I think I have just the right thing for you. It only happens once a year, and is totally different than anything you have ever known. That is sort of the point of a vacation though, isn’t it?”

“Habgamma grarllll.”

“Ah, she is going too. Hmmmm not sure Upper Management will enjoy that, she is such a hit. You guys have both worked really hard for our franchise. I think I can give you until the 2nd of May off. It really isn’t that many days. Here is your travel package. You will have to use the depixilation portal on Level Z to get to your Travel Terminal. From there the Hostess will make sure you end up where you need to be.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thembones and Banshee arrived to their vacation spot, fairly unscathed. They seemed to have landed in the water, but since they didn’t breath anyway, what did it matter.

Neither one of them have ever been depixilized for that long before, it was a an odd feeling, even for their kind.

Looking to shore, set before them was 14 interlocking worlds, in another gaming universe, spread out and ready for their exploration. He looked at Banshee, saw her crooked “smile”, and knew this was the perfect place. He had heard there was such delicacies as fairy brains here. He just could not wait!

They lumbered out of the waters, ready for their new adventure.

So began the vacation of two Zombies.

He and Banshee enjoyed a quiet lunch by the docks, holding hands as they watch the now brainless bodies bob in the water. Thembones decided to utilize some of the men’s garments, and created a look of his own. He felt sure to blend in now. He even decided to get try something new, and partook in the Wizard’s Pipe. Banshee thought he looked rather dashing.

Throughout this post I have used the Linden Labs Default Zombie avatars, which are in our ingame Inventory Library. I had always wanted to try out a photobombing, or I should say, Zombombing, with these avatars. I was rather tame, because photobombing actual people is hard on the fairelands, everyone seems to run everywhere.

I was inspired to do this by a group, which is on Flickr, which I like to visit for laughs.

Feel free to join Thembones and Banshee on their adventures in the Fairelands. I am sure people will find it amusing to see zombies running about. I would love to see your take on what you think a zombie would do at the faire.

You can visit and join the Linden Lab’s Mesh Avatars Flickr Group and be sure to add any photos you take to the Official Fantasy Faire Flickr Group as well. Please feel free to comment on this post, if you do end up taking the mantel, and go off enjoying the faire as a zombie.

The Fairelands await your Visit!

Pets of the Fairelands – Baby Dragons

Helena Stringer - Fantasy Faire 2016 - Pets of the Fairelands - Baby DragonsAnother of my favorite things about Fantasy Faire is the sheer amount of little pets and creatures you can find, created by the various designers at the event.

I decided it was time to show off a few of the lovable little collectables, as I am sure there is a spot at all of your homes, just waiting to be filled with a new creature.

My pick today is from Bliensen + MaiTai. They have created these little baby dragons, there are 3, and each are a bit different in variation and colour.

Included in each package you will get a rezzable ground version, as well as a wearable version for your avatar.

The dragon I photographed today is a 100% Relay for Life Charity Item.

The Sounds of Poems in OtherWorld

OtherWorld, the bright and mysterious land created and sponsored by Elicio Ember – Cerridwen’s Cauldron, is the home of the Literary Festival of the Fantasy Faire.

Last night I attended the “Sounds of Poems”, a wonderful way to explore the place – zooming with my camera – while listening to several writers who read their, or other peoples, poems. I has something calming and relaxing, and I recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already!

Since this Literary Festival is mainly readings done in voice, I made a short video – with sound! – as to give you a short impression.

OtherWorld is, as said, mysterious and bright and a true Fantasy, so of course I took some pictures as well.

Enjoy!
