My trip to the Fantasy Faire was an awesome trip,
none like any other I have seen. I started at
Fairelands Junction standing around like most of the
individuals to enter the Faire and tried to decide
which direction to take using teleports for each
sim. Wanting to close my eyes, I did make a choice
not in any special order.
I was greeted at one of the locations Muranda by
an anxious frog named Frupurple. He was
excited to see that I had come to the Fantasy
Faire for the first time. He advised me that the
Fantasy Faire is an 11 day event that raises money for
Relay For Life (RFL) to find a cure for cancer.
On my travels further down the road I came upon
another frog this one was green and he informed
me his name was Greenfold. He was a chatty chap
who made me promise not to tell Frupurple where
As I made my way across to the various
stores I see the creators and designers have been
very busy preparing for this awesome event. This
event is special to me as I have a sister who is a
breast cancer survivor of ten years.
I am fascinated at all of the sims creations and various use of textures. The creators/designers have come together to make this event truly a fantasy faire dream for everyone.
I ran into an elephant named Elise. She told me
that she would love to be moved out of the space
she is in however, is very happy to be a part of
Then I stumbled across a
child like figure in the hill. Their name was
Prodigy. They seemed very precise about
everything they told me from how anyone can get
the disease even children. They stressed how more
people need to be involved to stop it from
spreading and find a cure. I thanked them for the information and promised to forward their message to everyone.
The Unicorns danced
in a circle such fun the young boys stood showing off what they can do. I ran down the piano walkway hearing a tinkling every time my foot hit each note. I loved hanging out here but I realized I had more to see.
Heading throug Chaddul Ro it was quite a
guarded area and not many people were about
however the towers were awesome to look at.
I was excited to see this sim as I hear they had a circus. Now mind you like most circus’ we have seen in the real world a camaraderie of performers awaiting to show you their stunts and magic. This one was the first like this I have ever seen. How cool!
Finally I rested for a bit at Kakushi Pasu a beautiful sim where it is peaceful and calm. I enjoyed looking at the floating lanterns and candle flowers on the water. I also went over to The FaireChylde and watched some dancing.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/San%20Mora/129/76/42 his was an interesting sim with a cold twist to it. One might imagine that this would be if they found out they were ill or a family member was. They might not feel like doing anything until help comes along.
To me this sim was to be like a pillar of strength for the ones on the road to recovery but unfortunately this sim only has remains of days of past. Once abundant the beauty of it’s roses still bloom making hope a word to remember.
As I made my away over to the Spirit Pool I found a sense of peace there. A statue named Unknown let me know to feel free to look around and make sure I go to the Last Unicorn Gallery. Even though my pictures are not the best as I have slow internet. The things that I saw were amazing.
Once I arrived in The Rose sim it reminded me of Venise, Italy which I have never been in the real world. So quaint and I really enjoyed walking on the streets here.
I decided to visit The Hill a lush beautiful sim with fields of green at every angle and small cottages lining the walkway. I saw a couple riding their horses, enjoying their day.
This is a lovely sim full of flower trees and beautiful buildings. You could almost smell the fragrant flowers.
When I got to Fallen Sands everything was all a buzz. Merchants trying to make deals with the customers. I met someone named Mr. Montgue Rumblestone. He kept
something about flamingos.
I stumbled down the sand to see the elephants who seemed much happier being near water. All of sudden this nosey camel named Carmel asked why I was here taking pictures. I explained to him that I have never been to the Fantasy Faire in Second Life. He then gave a camel grin showing some of his rotting teeth. His owner asked if I wanted to be a belly dancer, I laughed and declined.
A very dark and thorny place. It reminded me of how one would be depressed. I tried to make light of it and spoke to two avatars. They were not interested in speaking. I did let the fairy there know how beautiful her avatar was then I moved on.
The last leg of my journey. I found this sim to be very creative and awesome as well. As I was walking I fell into the water below. What wonders I had found. A beautiful place with things I have never seen in Second Life. What an artistic experience. There were statues that looked like underwater Gods, Clown fish just clowning around. Finally I am able to come to the Arts and Entertainment part of this fantastic Relay for Life (RFL) event. Many people gathered sitting on leaves awaiting a concert.
In closing this event is very dear to my heart, not only since I have a family member who is a cancer survivor but I have friends who are as well. I would encourage everyone to donate if you can, help when needed, provide assistance or whatever you can do in real life to help the folks who are suffering and their families, caregivers, Also let’s raise some money in Second Life. Thanks to all of the creators and the designers for donating their time and products. Let’s keep on giving so others may keep on living~~~ Gabriella Jawson (aka gabbyjaws Resident) I look forward to blogging most of all the designers creations in my next coming blogs.
