Day 10_117

Fantasy Faire isn’t complete unless I’m a non-human at some point. This Caboodle fawn with horns (not a RFL item) is so sweet and the SKS Designs texture (a RFL item) magical and charming. The fawn AO has incredibly endearing movements…head shakes, stretches, and even dances and a sit pose. I wear this sweet creature with human wings (which I re-positioned) and the ever-present floral crown (which I resized smaller) that I can’t seem to go without. Each year, there are items I can’t go without. Just like the Fantasy Faire itself. Ever present. Ever a part of me. Ever needed. Ever right and true. And so now, just two days remain. The amount raised, you ask…just out of curiosity and I don’t blame you, I was curious as well. The highest yet. Nearly $70,000 USD. (Tears fell silently down my cheeks when I read this on the Fantasy Faire website.) This, during a global pandemic in the Outworld. This, when no one really hawked their wares. No carnival barkers here, at least not to my ears. Just pure heart. Pure magic. Pure Fellowship. Pure love.

Stalking Order in Expanding Universe

Fantasy Faire 2020 slurls and urls

A Look at Fairelands 

“Order” and “Expanding Universe,” both skins from Fallen Gods in Zodiac (build by Alia Baroque and sponsored by Fallen Gods), are lovely, mesmerizing ones. For me, made even more compelling when worn with the crushed opals from the Expanding Universe skin. (A belated note: I’m not sure if “Order” is still available as it might be a limited skin that was offered only during a special jail and bail event.)

I’ve been stalking the true nature of “Order” and “Expanding Universe” ever since I got them. They seem to call through the ages with tales far and wide and surprising even, and yet silently compel the immediate telling of a single frame story.  And so I’ve found myself stalking a look to photograph. But where? Anywhere, true, but there is a warm/cool feeling to these pieces that’s jumped out at me. They are lovely, radiant skins, near yet far, carrying secrets and mysteries before time and with a smile and a wink – and maybe even wide-eyed scan – carrying those secrets and new ones well beyond time itself. Yet glance along the skins and you soon discover sources of life…life in the heavens, life in the stars, Life on Mars…and hints in abundance of life stripes of all manner and variety. And so a particular near-far mood of innocence coupled with age-old wisdom directed me to particular windlights well suited for the backdrop of a sky made icy-hot as it rises just above Gaia’s cliffs in the frozen region of the magnificent steampunking Auxentios Pass (build by Faust Steamer and sponsored by  [ContraptioN]). This isn’t the first look at “Order” or “Expanding Universe” that I’ve hunted out and it won’t be the last. Elusive as order in the universe may be at times, it seems both have a great deal to say.

(Also shown: “Harpy” body feathers from Trap in Sirens Lore. The wings are not part of “Harpy” and are instead a separate item from LOVE in Cassiopeia.)

Fantasy Faire’s official programming ends today, but the magic of the realm carries on until May 10th. So I’ll continue to post but it’ll likely be a bit sporadically as I intend to dive deep into these glorious lands before we bid them adieu on the 10th. Happy Fairelanding, wonderful Fairelanders!

A Look from the Fairelands (details and slurls after the pictures)

I’ve lost track of the days…but I think only four official days remain. Fairelands time flows by its own special magic. And the gorgeous realms here will put a spell on your heart. Let it be so. We’ve until May 10th to enjoy these gorgeous regions after the official programming ends on Sunday. I confess to stalking Queensgarden. It’s so beautiful here and throughout all the Fairelands…the heart, the spirit, the creativity, the resolve. The celebration of all that is good and wonderful, and the most noble of Fellowships wholly intent upon eradicating cancer from all worlds. Let it be so.

Day 5 ~ Beautifully Undone

The Isle of Shadows is many things, among them a region filled with pirates, mers, and fairies, shipwrecks, and dragons! Well, specifically the one and only beloved Fairchylde, which hovers above all carrying its always raucous dance parties in tow. When you visit, be sure to get your dance on but also be sure to explore. There are alot of surprising areas to sit and reflect, and a lovely long bridge to traverse. By all means, don’t forget to wade into the waters. You’ll find a radiant underwater world there, as serene as can be. Isle of Shadows is a lovely land of shadows, of reflection and of promise, all at once.

Day 4 ~ Soothing the Soul

A Look from the Fairelands (details and slurls after the pictures)

These Fairelands are a heartwarming place and happening. Today, not only was there joyous exploration, but there was so much learning and context about these wondrous regions, about the very idea of the Fairelands themselves. I’ve been involved in this effort as a blogger (and shopper!) all the way back from the very start, with the Friends Fighting Cancer event. It has been my priviledge to quietly watch this group of kindred spirits elevate the event into the beating heart of a fully evolved and expansive community, filled to the brim with heart and soul, uber talents and a genuine sense of mindfulness. Yesterday and today two separate and wonderfully detailed discussions occurred, with some combination of Fairelands cofounders, world builders, and American Cancer Society collaborators. Today, I learned that over the past 12 years and through the combined commitment of all Fairelanders, this community has raised nearly $400,000 USD. I mean…that is in whisker’s distance to a half a million USD.  …there really are no words. It’s staggering. And it’s also so utterly right and good. And it warms the heart so very much beyond so very much. As one cancer survivor to all the many many others who bravely shared their journeys yesterday and today and every day, and as one caregiver to all the many, many other caregivers who bravely wore or continue to wear their hearts outside of their bodies, and as one Fairelander to all the countless Fairelanders whose passionate resolve and intention make this incredible magic happen, well…gosh… Seriously, gosh…  Because I can only manage a smile so deep it has to be small or it will crack the heavens open. A smile of astonishment, a smile of knowing, a smile of immense gratitude, and one of deeply shared, unbreakable Fellowship. Bravo and Brava, Fairelanders. Seriously.
