Fantasy Faire Day 2

It was dark as I entered the Shrine Tree area... but then, it's always dark in the Shrine Tree area. This is a very serene and restful place. The sort of place where dreams are born.

Here there be dragons. LOTS of dragons.  It's best not to disturb sleeping dragons, unless they happen to be your good friends, in which case, wake them up and share some memories!  

There are a multitude of memories to be had in Shrine Tree. Little shrines and ofrendas scatter the landscape. There are also places to sit and chat while you create new memories.

I found myself watching over a sleeping sprite till his mother returned and then I realized that, for a fae, that might be several years. Oh well, my gryphon companion can fetch me a whootberry milk shake if I get hungry.

Enjoy your visit to Shrine Tree. You'll find delightful stores hidden among the magical scenery. Drop a few Lindens in the donation kiosks in memory of loved ones who have gone before. 
I think I'll take a little nap.

Fantasy Faire Day 1

Welcome to The Junction. This is where your adventure begins. You might want to wear a cloak. It's a tad chilly with all that ice and snow! If you look very closely, you will see my wolf and me at the bottom of one of the frozen waterfalls.

Take a look around at all the possiblities! Posters for featured events give you notecards. Portals to destinations around the Faire make it easier to get from one location to the next. 
For those of you who like a challenge, you can walk through the Faire. It will mean climbing a lot of stairs, but it really is the best way to explore. 
You definitely can't do the Faire in only one trip!

As always with SL events, plan to go as low lag and low script as possible. There are unbelievable numbers of textures and scripts loading throughout the Faire, which will take a while for your computer to process. Being considerate about your own numbers will improve the experience for everyone. 

Allow yourself plenty of time and have some patience. The Faire has its own lag hag: Baba Laga will get you if you go too high scripted. She loves to freeze you up and make you go gray just before booting you out of SL with her fashionably pointed stiletto.
Attending Fantasy Faire is definitely about the journey, not the destination. At the present time, there are still problems with crashing after TPs. LL is working to correct it, but don't be surprised if the TP goblins get you. Consider yourself a member of the I Crashed Club: swear a bit, get a drink, walk it off and try again.

The gates will swing open Thursday, April 18, @ 12 noon SLT and will close again May 5. 
There are 16 sims of beauty, magic, entertainment, RP, gaming, shopping, storytelling and just plain LOVE to enjoy. 

Every year the best fantasy creators in SL get together to present the biggest party you will ever attend. There are almost 200 creators and countless entertainers this year and their goal is to raise money for Relay for Life (the American Cancer Society) in the most amazing ways possible.

Butterfly Bait

If you're looking for the perfect place to celebrate the rebirth of Spring, head over to the Butterfly Conservatory. Not only will you find lovely flowers and hundreds of butterflies and birds, you'll even be able to pick up some notecards on how to attract and care for butterflies in your RL environment.

I'm wearing a playful butterfly patterned mini dress from 1 Hundred. Available in a rainbow of soft pastel colors, I'm showing lilac. Each color comes with matching panties. 
My shoes are from Lindy
The rings are from Livia. These items are available @ Designer Showcase* till the 28th.

My nails are from Mani Pedi, of course. Available @ Dazzle
