Fantasy Faire: Day 5 The Ridiculous and the Sublime

"Different strokes for different folks" never was more obvious than in this year's Fantasy Faire.

The Sublime: Raven's Perch
Raven's Perch is dark and menacing in a good way. Rose windowed chapels have been converted to use as shops and ravens ride the updrafts above the village. There are roses everywhere!

One gets the impression that there may be something ominous lurking just below the surface in Raven's Perch, but the buildings are so lovely and the atmosphere is so peaceful that I find myself returning to the sim just to wander the cobblestoned streets and enjoy it.

Kudos to Rivendale for their darkly mysterious but attractive sim.

The Ridiculous: Anansi
NeoVictoria brings you circus themed mechanical spider-legged boxcars looping the hills around a clown-faced steampunk airship. There is a big circus tent and what appears to be a fortune telling tent on board the ship in addition to a huge steam system .

I'm very familiar with the Anansi stories and know that he's a trickster spider. Perhaps the nice RP-ers at NeoVictoria are following a thread and can understand what's happening here, but I don't get it...!

There are two levels of potential shops, but I could only find four stores. The circus tents on the second level have stuff in them but appear to be static displays without any explanation. Backgrounds for different scenerios???

Oh, and btw, yes, that is me posing on the clown's nose. I'm not afraid of clowns...or spiders.
