Day 6 ~ Midsummer’s Eve…or not :)

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

It seems like it was just yesterday that the Fairelands rose from the mist and already we arrive at what used to be the midpoint of these magical lands. But time morphs, as it wills and wants. This year through a special magic the hours for these lands have been altered, as shared on a Fairelands press release:

“Fantasy Faire has always officially lasted eleven days, and in recent years we’ve been fortunate to have a few extra days added. This year we’re making it official: our formal programming will still conclude with our One Team dance party marathon on Monday, April 29th, but now we invite you to join us for an additional week of shopping, questing, and exploring as the Fairelands will be open through Sunday, May 5th. That’s a total of eighteen days of the Faire – and you never know when something unexpected might happen in that final week!”

Even so…as very wonderful friend Dale would say, be here now. There’s much beauty to explore, more than an oodle of things to do, and most of all…a fight to finish.  Fairelands details and slurls follow after the pics.

The Way of the Sun

The-Way-of-the-Sun

The Way of the Sun…possessor of a special magic.  Its fire and light never end, holding true through every turn of the hours.  Even when we can’t see it, the Sun shines and rises anew, and always forever in our hearts and souls.

These glorious Fairelands remain open until May 7th (although special events have ended; yet the RFL vendors, shopping, and the sims remain active and do so beckon). So far, the formal programming continues to close on an astonishing note.  By the end of Day 11, over 10 million lindens have been raised, the equivalent of $42,000 USD!!!

Wow…seriously, wow…

I have no idea how the World Creators, how all the many who toil and give form and shape to these Fairelands pull off such an amazing experience year after year…and topping themselves each time, no less.  There’s such incredible heart etched into all of this and with such loving care.  I thank you dear Fairelands organizers, builders, creators, coordinators, designers, writers, performers.  Thank you thank you thank you for creating such magnificent substance for our community’s shared passion and for providing such magic for all of us to bring the life of the Sun into.

The Way of the Sun…we shine on always, brightly so, ye fellow warrior Stars. Ever brightly so, dear Fairelanders.

Day 10 ~ Resolve

Day-10-Sanoria-4

As is tradition, I am a day late yet again!  These pics are from Day 10, but today is Day 11, typically the last day of the glorious Fairelands.  Yet magic springs eternal here because yesterday The Fairelands Worldmakers displayed signs to announce that these Fairelands have been extended another week!  After last week’s Jail and Bail, methinks the Lindens quake in fear of the mighty Paws of the Law and generously granted another week to these magical lands.  So Day 11 upon us today and from what I see on the official weblog, total lindens raised so far are knocking on the 9 million linden mark and may have busted open that door, yay!  Yesterday’s events included the Masked Ball, which welcomed 70 Fairelanders on one sim, and two other huge hordes of grand souls on two other sims.  It was tricky to take pics of that event without crashing, but I managed to get one of two persons whose looks I just adore.  In truth everyone looked fantastic as always, I just found myself mesmerized by these two (last pic).  Wish I had details for those looks but I don’t…you bet I’ll swarm the Fairelands to see if I can discover them though…that is if I don’t get distracted by the amazing builds and multitude of things to do!  Another week!!!  HUZZAH!

  • Warrior Outfit (including helmet head and bow):  Intense Power outfit including leg harnesses, gloves, skirt, top, bow, helmet head from Bella Epoque.   This look is aptly named because it takes some *intense* playing of this gacha machine to get the helmet head (which is Rare).   Most definitely a cool look though.  Also this headwear is more than a helmet, it’s one piece that includes the mesh head specifically for this look.  (Location in Pools of Ethuil)

I find myself saying the same thing year after year:  this year’s Fantasy Faire is *incredible.*  Most noteworthy is this message from the amazing Fairelanders’ founders-organizers-all-around magic makers:

We are delighted and proud beyond words to announce a historic moment, not just for Fantasy Faire, but for Relay for Life as a whole and for the American Cancer Society.  For the first time in its 32-year history, a Relay for Life team is channeling its fundraising to one specific ACS project:  building a Hope Lodge in Kenya, where cancer survivors and their caregivers can stay for free while undergoing their treatments at facilities that are far from their homes.   

Full details here:  Hope Lodge for Kenya and SL Fantasy Faire

That the American Cancer Society reached out to Fantasy Faire to pilot this effort is wonderful testament to the truly profound impact made by Second Life and its Fairelanders.  The Hope Lodge for Kenya focus and all the artistry and community in the Fairelands makes this year’s happenings bigger, bolder, more beautiful than ever.  If you haven’t yet been, make sure to Be Here.  If you’ve already been, Be Here Again.  As is the true spirit of this wonderful community, Be Here Always.
