Cool Places


One of the most hilarious traditions on the Fantasy Faire is: the tour with the bus over the Fairelands.
Every year, skilled and certified bus-driver,  Alia Baroque welcomes all who dare…err…want,  to  his bus for a special tour around the Faire. A wonderful way to enjoy the scenery and have a look at all the amazing places from your comfortable seat in the vehicle.

Last night the first tour was scheduled, how fitting: on #worldpenguinday and I was one of the lucky passengers to get a seat! We departed from The Rose and ̶t̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶c̶r̶a̶s̶h̶e̶d̶ ̶i̶n̶t̶o̶ ̶, arrived at Dawns Promise for a short break. After that refreshing pause we got to see the wonders of The Hills where Alia The Penguin t̶h̶r̶e̶w̶ ̶u̶s̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶u̶s̶ ̶m̶i̶d̶a̶i̶r̶, let us wander about a bit to have a good look. Amazing sim!

Did you know Raven’s Perch looks absolutely delightful from a 90 degrees view? Recommended!

Unfortunately I was not able to sit out the entire tour d̶u̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶a̶i̶r̶ ̶s̶i̶c̶k̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ because of an important meeting and I had to jump off on Chaddul Ro.

If you have time, and see the bus passing by, hop on and do the tour, it is: A Sweet Ride!


The Fairelands Quest: The Bard Queen’s Song is now open!

Every landing point in the Fairelands has Quest HUDs available for purchase. There are two HUD-versions:

  • L250: Basic HUD (HUD & the shoulder companion)
  • L350: Deluxe HUD (HUD, the shoulder companion & custom outfit for both men and women)

The custom outfits are created and donated by Silvan Moon Designs, one of our Faire sponsors, and they look absolutely stunning!

The Quest offers you a dragon hoard sized pile of prizes, one per Faireland and then the end treasure from the Faireland creators!

Most importantly, it offers you a chance to be the Hero of the Fairelands and save the Bard Queen! Don’t delay, the days are fleeting and she needs your help! Hints and tips, if you need them are available!

Are you brave and fierce enough to wander around this grim and desolate place, doing the Fantasy Faire 2017 quest? I salute you, oh fearless Fairefolk….!

Did you know the Fairefolk, the residents of the Fantasy Faire,  are actually really hardcore party-peeps?
They will not end a day without a party and dancing, and that is why the Faire Chylde is such a great place. Docked at Kakushi Pasu – the home of the Literary Festival – this Dragon borne ship is the heart of the parties.

So, if you are in for some dancing and chatting after a day of exploring and shopping on the Fairelands, why not come over and join the fun and meet creators, sim builders and other Fairefolk?

You will be amazed on how friendly they are, okay…some are not to happy to see Elves – like Ciaran and my friend Huckleberry/Gollum (yes, he looks a bit tired these days…..), who both seem to think one should never trust an Elf!?
But besides that, it is all good fun! Really!

He would not let me touch his ring...

Just check out the Fantasy Faire Calender of Events  for party-times. And oh….did you know…you can listen to the music played at the parties anyway, by tuning in to Fantasy Faire Radio?

Fantasy Faire 2017

And so it begins. Another year of the Fantasy Faire. The Fairelands are open to all and welcome everyone.

As I have explored the amazing and wonderful sims the past days, thinking this year is even more gorgeous than previous years – but I think that every year! – I could not help but feel this year has a extra feel to it.

The feeling of hope. Hope for a cure, and a promise for a future. The Fantasy Faire is, after all, a RFL event and in Second life: an important one.

Let’s keep hoping to find the cure and let’s promise to never forget those we lost.

Oh the Fantasy Faire 2017 is almost there, two nights sleep and then ….the awesomeness opens to all!

Fantasy Faire 2017

The Fairelands have returned to the grid, as they do every year…and oh my, have I been waiting for them! And not just me, no no…all of the Fairefolk past, present and future have been looking out for their home to return.

Opening the 20th of April, a world in a world will be there to explore. And if you thought last year, or the year before etc…that it could not get any better? Wrong, it is once again…better, more amazing, more awesome and exciting.

Soon - II

How do I know? Well I sneaked in and took some secret pics with my hidden camera!

OK. No. That is not true. I am honoured to be one of the official FF Photographers again, and so I got early access to shoot pics and videos before the Fairefolk moved in.

Respect and admiration for the sim builders, the creators, the organisation, the designers, the…

Before I am offline for some family visits this Easter weekend, I had some fun dancing in at  the Gardens by the Bay (LEA15), in one of the many cute and magical spots on that sim. Such a lovely place, be sure to go there and explore, it will make you smile!

Happy Easter
