Second Life can make our dreams come true, even those of our childhood we might have almost forgot. And the people who are making this happen, I think don't get the deserved public attention. The Fantasy Faire is a yearly gathering of the creators which always makes my heart beat faster. Therefore I decided this year to apply as official blogger. The next days I will cover some of the exciting builders and their products.
From the press release: "Celebrating its fifth year, Fantasy Faire 2013 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Saturday April 20 to Sunday April 28, treat yourself to nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators come together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.
Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from more than 130 of SL's top Fantasy Creators, spread across ten stunning sims designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the SL destination guide.
The Fantasy Faire 2013 is made possible by the generous support of our Sim and Event Sponsors: æros avatar, The Arcanum, Cerridwen's Cauldron, Dark Goddess Designs, Dwarfins, Epic Toy Factory, Fallen Gods Inc., Fanavatar & Moonstruck, FATEWear, F_cking Ninjas, The Looking Glass, L'Uomo, Roawenwood, --= Solarium =--, Spyralle, T R I D E N T"
A Highlight are the 10 different sims, all built by some of the finest builders in SL. Here a small teaser taken by Draxtor Despres. It is the place built by Alia Baroque and still in progress. Alia told me that he is still working on it:
Fantasy Faire 2013 will be open to the public April 20 -28
You may wonder why I don't write about the charity part of the event. The reason is, that I do not get why in an international community like Second Life these events are always in favor of the American Cancer Society. I know that the USA have a lousy health care system, but is that a reason to pass the money always to one of the richest countries in the world? And if it must be America, my personal wish would be to invest it in shaking those stubborn Republicans until they get in in their retarded brains that a social health care is mandatory in a modern society which dares to call themselves civilized. Phewww, having this out I feel better and look forward to a great event!
