There have been some great new things at the Fantasy Faire which has – because of Thursday’s grid down-time – been extended for an extra day!
I haven’t yet caught up with the Tiny Calypso Band, sadly – but everyone will tell you that petites are the big thing of the Faire. I must confess, I’ve bought one myself … and it has been great fun travelling around the Faire. The cuteness is frightening.
But we came across the really big thing of the Faire (if I might so refer to Miss Quixote) in The Tides as we were filming an upcoming episode of Designing Worlds.
Ceri Quixote, who makes shapes and skins, is experimenting with a range of giant shapes, which will be twenty foot tall. The creation she is wearing at the Faire is a special edition – she told us that, sadly, she feels that it’s not really practicable as a commercial shape. But it’s incredibly impressive!
So even as the Faire enters its final weekend, there is plenty to see and do … make sure you catch it!
