The Fantasy Faire 2021 Roleplay Story Begins!

Yesterday The Society of Extraordinary Explorers began their roleplay by telling tales of experiences and myths to set the scene for what antics are to come over the following week. Read more about The Children of Stories here.

Lets see what mischief they get up to next! You can keep up on the Updates page.

Remembering The Fantasy Faire 2019

2019 was the first year I was able to attend any of the organised events at the Faire.

I decided that year that I’d like to try and follow the years organised Roleplay story. I thought today on the eve of the 2021 Roleplay starting would be a good day to rememberit.

That year told the story of The Bubbo Owls and their adventures around the Fairelands. I did write a blog post at the time, but remembering is such fun!

Purple in Paer Thura – Fantasy Faire

I am not a “pink” lady, anyone that knows me, or just a glance at my flickr or past posts will testify. However I’m not adverse to a bit of purple now and then.

This post was going to be called “Pretty in Purple” when I was putting the outfit together and I thought I’d find a suitable setting in the Faire. When I found myself in Paer Thura and felt this was the perfect place.

This ripped denim outfit from Dark Fairy Fashions seemed to hit the spot. Rough around the edges like me and in the right colours for when I’m not feeling so dark and inspired by the bizarrely beautiful location!

It leaves plenty of skin on show which just begged for the right tattoo. Fortunately Nefekalum has just the thing also at the Faire.

The Valkyrie Guardian

The Valkyrie stands guard at the portal to the Mortal Realm. Not the most exciting of jobs, since the chances of Mortals finding the path that their winged mounts take to bring the souls of dead warriors to Valhallah is pretty slim. But Mortals have now developed their airships, which at least making it a possibility to be guarded against.

The Blogger Room..and what it means to me

Now this may be a very strange thing to be posting about, it’s not particularly glamorous, or something you can buy but it’s important in another way to me. (For those new to my blog, I post about stuff that happen to me in my SL not just things or places, this I think is one of those significant moments.)

 

I’m in the “Blogger Room” of Fantasy Faire 2021. It’s not located within the Faire regions (we have to keep out of there til the 21st) and its location is only known to the organisers, merchants and official bloggers. This is where merchants put review copies for the bloggers to use in their posts about the event.

This isn’t just special because it’s my first time in the Faire blogger room, it’s also the first time I’ve been an official Blogger for any event and therefore first time in any Blogger Room, so quite milestone I think!

 

Fantasy Faire is I think unique in the amount of freedom and flexibility it gives to its bloggers. We’re not given quotas of x items from x number of shops and so many posts like some events. Its not all about shopping like those events, although obviously that plays a large part with all the cool new stuff merchants release and to raise money for RFL. The fantastic landscapes and crazy environments the World builders create are what I love and the stories and adventures they inspire.

Combining what the generous merchants have left for us with the no-doubt beautiful lands, I hope to have some fun posts for you. I suspect I shall be making several trips here, since as you can see in the image above, there are still lots of unfilled boxes and another wall of them out of shot, the room is less than a quarter full, so I look forward to seeing what other delights we are offered!
