By Caitlin Tobias – Cait’s World. Visit Fantasy Faire 2017: The Fairelands on the Horizon & Filling the Cauldron for original post.

THE event of the year, since years in Second Life for me is:  The Fantasy Faire. And I am thrilled, excited ánd very proud that the FF 2017 organisation again asked me to contribute on the official Fantasy Faire website/blog as guest author and as photographer.

The Fantasy Faire 2017 will span 15 sims and I am already sure they all will be amazing, the Fairelands open to the public 20-30 April and it is an offical SL RFL event. One of the biggest in Second Life.

Merchants can apply already and blogger application will open soon, for more information on that,  please check the offical Fantasy Faire website!

On a side note, there is this.

One of the veteran Fantasy Faire sim designers for years is Elicio Ember, known from his home Cerridwen Cauldron and his awesome sims for past Fantasy Faires.
This year he had to pull out from the Faire, for personal – tragic – reasons, his father got seriously ill and in the country he lives (Mexico) , treatment is possible but at a high cost.
Due to circumstances, all explained on this website Filling the Cauldron, Elicio cannot be a part of his beloved Faire as he is facing not only caring for his father but also a lot of medical costs.

 

The Fantasy Faire community and lovers of Cerridwen’s Cauldron have stepped up, and while Elicio will not be able to participate in this years Faire, the Second Life community can participate by helping him out.

 

 

 

RUNNING FROM SATURDAY APRIL 1ST THROUGH SUNDAY APRIL 9TH, Filling the Cauldron will be a region-wide event at Holly Kai Park  – by Inara Pey and Caitlin Pey (caitlyn015.resident) in the beautiful Blake sea, and will be featuring:

–   Live music and DJ performances at the park’s main events venue
–   An art display inspired by Elicio’s work
–   An auction
–   A special Design a Garden contest with a very special prize
–   A photo contest with special prizes
–   A market area, Cerridwen’s Corner – a mini-store of Elicio’s creations, allowing you to buy his items & visit his main store.

Filling the Cauldron. Check it out.

See you at the Fantasy Faire!

Are You Going to Renaissance Faire VI in Second Life? (Hint: You should!)

By – webspelunker – My Travels Across Second Life. Visit Are You Going to Renaissance Faire VI in Second Life? (Hint: You should!) for original post.

 The phoenix must burn to emerge. 

Janet Fitch 

            Summer is drawing to its close in Real Life (RL), at least here in the Northern Hemisphere! 

            The last, long weekend of the American summer, Labor Day, draws nigh.

            All this means that the annual Renaissance Faire in Second Life (SL) will soon be here! 

So, when Perryn Peterson, the Mayor of Mieville, impresario extraordinaire, and my good friend in SL reached out recently to let me know that Renaissance Faire VI was soon

to be upon us, I was ready!  (Significant Other comments something about this being a rare occurrence.) 

            Since I’m still struggling to catch up after being away  I reached out to my latest Companion to join me and help with the photographs.  (She still wishes to remain anonymous to protect her professional reputation.  Significant Other suggests they form a support group.) 

            As with such Faires in RL, Renaissance Faire VI is a celebration of all things Renaissance.  The rebirth of knowledge and learning after the long night of the Dark Ages. 

In keeping with this theme, the SL Faire begins in a period village and hunters go off to find the marvelous gifts being offered by the participating merchants. 

            Renaissance Faire VI is located in Mieville Shelley, where it relocated to last year. 

            The site is a beautiful bucolic setting of a small village having its annual faire.  Besides the contemporary buildings located around a small pond, the temporary tents and booths of merchants and gypsies are set up on the outskirts of town. 

            Strolling through this scene, one hears the bubbling brooks and listens to period music.  Meriadne Merlin a RL performer has supplied several of the tunes which Perryn has been using for a number of years. 

            Trees, shrubs, grasses, and flowers decorate the sim adding a pastoral effect that contributes to the feeling that one has left the modern age and returned to a simpler time.   (Mike Olbracht, Mieville’s landscaper par excellanceand Perryn’s partner has once again

shown how talented he is and I marvel at the subtle changes that he has made to the grounds since last year!  His work alone is worth a visit to the Faire.)

            Strolling through the streets and lanes of the Faire, I see the various wares on display by the merchants and am impressed by their variety and quality.  Perryn always strives to have the best inworld mechants at his events. 

            While I’m wandering through the gypsy encampment, peeking into their vardos, (Yes, there’ll be a fortune teller!), my Companion is off busily snapping away with her photographs.  (I really don’t deserve her help.  Significant Other says she’s not the only one whose help I don’t deserve.) 

            BTW Ktahdn Vesuvino will be broadcasting period music from the gypsy encampment during the Faire! So. Make sure you’re listing for his tunes when you visit! 

            The Tinies from Tinyopolis have their own Artisans Lane with high quality craftspeople participating and shouldn’t be missed!

            There’s also a gacha tent with all the latest gachas! 

            The maypole still has pride of place in the center of the village and a small stage is a

t the water’s edge for performances during the Faire and don’t forget to see the Punch & Judy show! 

            As for the Hunt itself, seventy-five of the best shops inworld are participating!  (There’s also a mini-hunt at the Faire itself!)

            A complete list of participating merchants can be obtained by joining the Historical Hunts, Ltd. Group inworld.  Additional information can be obtained from the website. 

            As always, the Renaissance Faire is a fun community event offering great opportunities to meet other residents and to learn about life inworld.  It also helps the merchants who are a vital part of SL! 

             I heartily recommend joining the Hunt or at least visiting the Faire!

            The Faire can be found here and runs from September 1st to 30th. 

            Happy hunting! 

            As always, I’d like to thank Perryn and his team for staging these terrific events and putting up with me as I write my stories!   

            I’d also like to thank the Companion for joining me at the last minute (Significant Other says what else is new.) and taking photographs.  (Hers are the better ones here and on this Flickr pagewhere all our photos from this trip can be found.) 

As always, I’m grateful to all inworld for their kindness and time in stopping to talk with a stranger who was passing through their lives. 

My Twitter handle is @webspelunker.  Please feel free to follow me and I’d be happy to follow you.

I can be found on Google+ as webspelunker Ghostraven.

            Open roads and kind fires!



Fantasy Faire: Angel of Blackmoor

STORYLINE: God’s Warrior Angels were known for fighting against all forms of evil. It was Melchizedek who fought the Unweaver, the plague of cancer upon humanity. In garden of Blackmoor, each day he solemnly lit a candle for every soul who fell to the Unweaver. His life and memory were long, and it gave him strength to keep fighting.

One of the best events in SL is back, The Fantasy Faire! The Faire has 14 jaw droppingly gorgeous sims for you explore. There are daily roleplays, live performances, a quest adventure game, literary festival, Artwork, Djs, and of course shopping. This amazing, one of a kind, event is all about raising money for American Cancer Society Relay for Life to fight caner. You can read more about Fantasy Faire at its mainsite here: https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com

Good news! Introducing this year is a Pinterest Shopping-Catalogue-2016 for the Fantasy Faire. The guide was put together by a team of volunteers (including yours truly) to make your shopping easier. Each picture includes the store, item name, and Surl to where you can find the item. (Note: The Shopping Guide shows only the Relay for Life donation vendors, so its only a sample of the many things at the faire.)

The picture above was taken at the beautiful Blackmoor sim. (Love it so much, I want to live there!) You can read more about Blackmoor’s creation by Lokii Violet here. I knew it would be the perfect setting for the Wizard outfit by W-Zero. (Fans of the Trinity Blood anime should definitely check it out!) It includes outfit, staff, and hat. There is a male and female version.  From Soul is the Ranitomeya {tera SE} skin. Its a purple skin with fun golden spots and patterns on it. It includes appliers for TMP, Slink, Adam, Catwa, and Omega. There is a male and female version also. From Winry’s Whimsey is the Dragon/Gecko eyes. These eyes come with a hud that make it possible to fit the default avi, mesh heads, and even furry avatars! Nice!  Additional items are the Starry Night hair gacha by Tableau Vivant, Mushilu Angel wings, and Elf ears by Mandala.  I’ll see you at the faire! Have fun for a good cause!

Fantasy Faire: Jon Snow

By – Bishie Style SL. Visit Fantasy Faire: Jon Snow for original post.

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: What was it like, drifting between worlds, neither alive or dead? Jon should have felt nothing, and saw nothing, but he did. Through the eye of his pet direwolf Ghost, he could see into the living world. It was a magic called warging, a talent that ran in the Stark family. But it wasn’t until he lay dying, his blood spilling in the snow, that he discovered this skill inside himself. His spirit had cried out to Ghost in a panic. The wolf embraced him, soothing him like a frighten cub as his body died. And then they merged into one. What had died that day was not him, but his naiveté. If given another chance, he would not make the same mistake twice.

So many people want to know if Jon Snow, from Game of Thrones, comes back. I read an interesting fan theory the other day so I worked it up into an image. This picture is shot at the amazing Fantasy Faire Dangarnon sim by Death Row Designs. Its so easy to get lost there! So much densely packed details, its hard to believe it’s SL. All the buildings are for sell, and cave and tower are relay donation items. The giant evil looking tower will be auctioned off at the end of the Fantasy Faire, all funds will be donated to the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life. Don’t miss this amazing sim! Only 2 more days are left of the Faire.  Shown above is the Stitched EPOS Albar tunic for men at Fantasy Faire. The shirt underneath is grey but for my image I tinted it a darker color. From BluPrintz is very cool blindfold with animated flames coming out of one eyehole. Very cool effect. It’s mod so you can adjust it for the perfect fit or tint the flames and glow.  From Poseidon is the Wizard 1 pose pack with pose and orb.  Over at the Epicene event, is this very cool leather shawl by Noble Creations. You can get it for male and female, black or brown.  The spooky Shadowed Wolf by Aii is an attachment that floats behind you. The trail is flexi so it makes a nice spooky effect when moving.  Making for a nice Jon Snow look is the Adam mesh head by Absolut Creation, and the Mon Tableau Vivant hair.  The belt and sword are the outfits gacha by Death Row.  Have fun at the Fantasy Faire this weekend! Be sure to check the main website for the event schedule, hunt guide, and shopping catalog. https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/

Fantasy Faire: The Golden General

By – Bishie Style SL. Visit Fantasy Faire: The Golden General for original post.

(click to enlarge)

STORYLINE: As surely as the Nile flooded each year, Horemheb was certain he was destined for greatness. He was born with gold hair and eyes. The faithful of the Two Lands took his golden features as a sign, for they believed the gods had skin of gold. Horemheb ascended quickly up the ranks of the army as a skilled warrior and strategist. However when he reached the pinnacle of his career, General of Pharaoh’s army, chaos struck. The Heretic King denounced all the Gods of Egypt and declared the Sun the one true god. Enraged, Horemheb stormed into the darkest depths of the Holy of Holies. It was sacrilege for anyone to enter except the high priest. Horemheb was not afraid. He demanded the gods intervene immediately. A chill blew into the chamber. From the mist a mysterious voice whispered, “If you strike down King Akhenaten, Queen Nefertiti, and all the Children of the Sun…. a new nation will be born from you, the Children of the Moon.” Horemheb smiled. He thought the God had blessed him and his secret plan to take matters into his own hands. Afterall, with all the royals and their followers eliminated, he would be next in line for the throne. He could restore the old religion. However the voice had not issued a blessing, it was a dire warning his cruel ambitions would invoke a terrible curse.

Today is the last day of the Fantasy Faire, and I’m please to bring you a theme dear to my heart, Ancient Egypt. Fallen Gods has created the Golden Delta sim at Fantasy Faire. It’s wonderful to explore and watch the boats sail out. While you are there, don’t miss MeadowWorks awesome Egypt gacha, the rare is Nefertiti! Over at WasabiPills is the Cleo mesh hair for girls. Its mod so I reshaped it for a better fit. From Empyrean Forge is the wonderful Emissary’s Rook. It comes in male and female fit, and is availible in black, silver, or brown. From OtherSkin is the cool Prophecy chin beard. … Ok, I have to run. ….Have fun at Fantasy Faire!
