This week on Monday 13th April at 2pm SLT, as excitement grows for THIS year’s Fantasy Faire, we are taking a look back to our very first Fantasy Faire show, back in 2011!
Unavailable on the web for a number of years, it recently found a home on our new Archive channel (which is full of goodies!).
You can watch it on this blog, and you can also see the show on the Designing Worlds Archive Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/373068686. And you can join the special Watch Party (also at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.
This is what we said in 2011:
“Today Designing Worlds will be visiting Fantasy Faire and sharing with you some of the amazing regions that make up the Faire! So prepare for fantastic elven woodlands, for lakes of chocolate, for delicately texture dark mysteries, for seas that lure mermaids, and for steampunk fantasies beyond your wildest dreams! And we’ll be learning all about the Faire and the entertainments that it is offering for visitors, as well as about how the hunt has achieved its wonderful, magical appearance – and about some of the designers who have worked so hard to make it happen.”
The annual Fantasy Faire was, in 2011, a 9-sim extravaganza celebration with a slant toward elves, fairies, dragons, mermaids plus many more role playing fans. The 10 day event featured some amazing and impressive builds to visit and was, as ever, part of the Relay For Life in SL campaign to benefit the American Cancer Society.
We don’t have time to show you all the regions – but you will be able to see some awesome photos, taken by the talented Mr PJ Trenton, of the Faire as a whole.

After the show, Saffia was captured and placed in jail to raise funds for Relay for Life. Despite valiant efforts by friendly dragons to free her, she was held fast until she posted bail of L$50,000!
