The Fantasy Faire may have ended on Sunday, but that doesn't mean I don't have more things to share! As we bid a fond farewell to this years realms lets toast to everyone who makes the faire happen. The world builders, creators, djs, bloggers, artists and performers and anyone who I may have missed because lets face it there is a lot of work that goes into putting on something like Fantasy Faire!

I have to admit I have a soft spot for matching outfits for couples. I know it can be seen as cheesy, but look at us, we look amazing! The Duke and Duchess of Drinks living in the family manor with some old relation looking down upon them. I have just finished binge watching Downton Abbey so you will forgive my need for the fancy jewelry, tiara and drinks. It seems that was all the rage when having a fancy do and well I do enjoy pretending to be fancy.

Of course no house is complete without a family pet. May I present to you Odin, our dog. What you can't see is baby momma Freya and puppy Thor. You may have guessed that I was the one to name the dogs, but hey there is nothing wrong with Norse Gods...or their Marvel equivalent.  I believe I have a bit over caffeinated at the moment so will throw the credits at you (not literally).

Proud Parents

The proud parents look on as their growing brood feasts upon their supper. Dinner is always fresh and served raw though some of the children like to heat it up on their own. The momma touches her stomach where the latest edition to the family grows while the pappa smiles happily. I won't tell you where they got their dinner because you may think them terrible, but let's just say no one should ever catcall momma

Dragon Dinner

That's right, the family is feasting upon fresh hearts. What else would you feed your growing whelps? The older kids enjoy roasting their dinners, though I think they are just showing off as the younger two have not quite gotten to the flame stage. This is one happy, somewhat murderous family.

I have not had nearly enough coffee to be writing a witty post today. The Fantasy Faire is coming to an end this weekend so if you haven't shopped for a cause yet what are you waiting for??!?! You don't have to be a roleplayer to find something cute for yourself. Just look at these bubble blowing animals for example.

2020-5-4_001

Maybe you are not in the market for adorable wall art that also has the options to get some cute animals blowing pink bubbles. How about some eyes? Eyes are the window to the soul or so they say.

2020-5-4_002- edit

So before the Fantasy Faire ends go have a look around. You may be surprised by what you find.

In the village along the Lamented Fens there is a tale about the “Lady of the Fens”. A woman who is said to wander the fens wailing when the mists come rolling through. As the tale goes, she was once a proud lady in the area until tragedy struck. The fair lady was betrothed to a handsome and loving man. One day a man came along and made some rather slanderous claims against the lady. Her beloved fought with the man for her honor and before anyone knew what happened the rogue pulled out his weapon and shot the love of her life. It is said that after his funeral she ran off into the night and lost her life to fens. Now her spirit wanders the fens taking out her revenge on any man she sees as a threat to a woman's happiness. Now whenever a woman from the village feels wronged by a man she leaves an offering asking for the “Lady of the Fens” to avenge her.

Lady Of The Fens 2

While I was wandering the Fens I came across her. She didn't seem too imposing from afar at the very least she wasn't what I was expecting. There was no ethereal glow about her, no black mists or anything like that. Not even the animals fled so I dared to get a little closer to get another photo.

Lady_of_the_Fens_Edit

I think I was a little hasty in my initial assessment of her. Her blank and staring eyes seemed to burn straight into my heart, almost like she was looking for mistreatment there. Since there was no one I wanted or needed her to wreak revenge on I turned and fled from the fens as fast as my legs to take me!

Cosplay one

As I was putting together this look from Fantasy Faire my husband said that I looked like I was dressing up in a cosplay outfit. He may be right on that score, but don't tell him I said that! I am in love with these wings because...stars! If you have never read a post from me then you may not know about my love of stars. I am rambling so I am going to show you another photo, this one a little closer.

Cosplay - closer

Don't I look adorable? You can look adorable to if you just follow these simple steps...

Fairy_Two_Edit

It's not only wildlife that is returning since humans are all locked up inside their homes this spring.  If you look closely from your window you many see a flower fairy or two hanging around the blossoms and buds. I was able to capture a shot of this one weaving her magic around my daffodils. It's almost as if she knew I was taking photos the way she was posing!

Fairy_closer_-_resized_Edit

I enhanced the first photo so I could see more details of the little fairy who was frolicking in my flowers. I mean I have seen images of them in books and versions in films but never have I seen one in my own garden! Maybe next time I can figure out a way to talk to her, or any of her fae folk friends.

*On Sale Today!

My dearest reader yesterday I spent some time in the fairelands checking out all the happenings I could. I started the day in the Spirit Valley of Kuruk, and having the elvish travelers notes I have some headache pills on hand just in case. That is besides the point. When I arrived I was shocked to see small creatures both humanoid looking and not called “Grizzly Cubs”. It seems, from what I could gather that they were incarcerated for the murder of the Medicine Bear. They proclaimed their innocence while one lone man, a trapper of some sort, argued that he witnessed some shenanigans and that they were guilty. Luckily for the Grizzly cubs they were found innocent and were set free.

Grizzly Cubs Freed 2

After a little while back at home taking care of some blog business (that’s code for yesterday’s post) I put on a fancy frock and headed to the masked ball. Now I will admit I completely forgot the mask part. Okay and I got lost getting there too. Can you say intimidating? It was almost like a who’s who of Faireland bigwigs and creators. I was a shy little reporter and hung back in a corner dancing, but that didn’t stop me from taking a few snaps.

Masked Ball 2

After the ball I dashed home once again to change before heading to what I assumed would be a historical play about the Amazons. Before the show we were offered wine and snacks. Maybe that should have been my first warning. Following the snacks and libations there were trays and trays of rotting tomatoes. I seriously should have been worried now. Before the curtain even had a chance to rise on the actors there were tomatoes being volleyed about. I dodged as many as I could. Things only devolved from there once the curtain went up. The audience was pelting the actors with tomatoes and soon the actors were retaliating! By the time the play...ended? It looked like a marina factory exploded because out of who knows where the actors found other rotten veggies to throw back at the audience. Needless to say after this I need to go home once more for a change of clothes and this time a shower too!

The Show

Once showered and changed I dashed off to Drifts of Anamnesis to join the group for the Litfest tour of Autumnium. The tour started with the beautiful poem “To Autumn” by John Keats. As we toured around everyone was sharing thoughts and ideas about what these little bits here and they meant. We saw summer oasis in the middle of autumn, and statues with lanterns that cast out magical blue firelight. After we returned to the starting point we had a quick dance party before hoping back to the Drifts.

Litfest tour

The final part of my day was spent listening to the mythos of the faireland and junction. As Elizabeth was discussing the fate of the faire this year I got a little teary eyed. I couldn’t imagine what it would have been like if the faire was cancelled this year. While the world outside the doors in the real world is scary, the fairelands provide a fun and safe place for people to meet, learn new things, and see amazing sights all while raising money for Relay For Life. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak many RFL events have been cancelled so do your part to help raise money here, where you can donate to the kiosks or even buy items for a donation. 

Mythos of Junction and the fairelands

The other day I told you about an elf with a magical orb that allowed her to travel between different realms. Well now you you can travel these realms she visited. I have in my possession photos of some of the different realms she visited for she would not reveal them all to me. She briefly described each to me and I shall now relay them to you.

One of the realms she visited was called Zodiac. While here she watched the ships head out to sea in a beautiful setting. The sounds of waterfalls, the scent of flowers on the air all resting atop cliffs was a full sensory experience for her.

Zodiac 2

After using her orb to travel once more she landed in the realm of Auxentio's Pass. She was not ready for a realm such as this one. Why you may ask? Well this land was cold, not just because it was covered in snow and ice, but because there were frightful machines wandering around. Cold hard metal that terrified her so much she cowered in a corner until it passed her. I can't lie, she was happy to leave that place, but maybe you are a braver adventurer.

Auxentios Pass

Her next stop was the realm of Lunafae. This realm make her feel much happier than the previous one. She enjoyed spotting the wee fae that inhabited this land going about their day. Some were playing games others were exercising and still others were attending teas. She got lucky enough to be able to sit with one of the fae and have a lovely picnic. She was a little saddened when the orb whisked her away but she know more adventures awaited her.

LunaFae

Our poor elf friend found herself in a bit of water as the orb transported her once more. I mean literally she found herself underwater in the realm of Melisina's Depths. Luckily there was some sort of magic in place that allowed her to breath beneath the waves. Once her panic settled and she realized she wasn't at risk of drowning she took in her wondrous surroundings. Never before has she been underwater in such a way that she could explore all the plant life that thrived at the bottom of whatever form of water this realm may be made of. The colors of the plants were so vibrant she wished she could bottle it up and take it with her.

Cant_rememeber_the_sim_Edit

As the orb swept her off to another land she could hear this noise in the ether, it was almost like a mix between a chant and a sonorous growl. When she arrived in the Spirit Valley of Kuruk she quickly learned where the sound was coming from. This land was home to some might big bears with mighty deep voices. She wasn't sure if they were using these chant-like sounds to communicate with one another or if it was part of some ritual. What she did know is after a while it caused her head to hurt.

Kuruk_headache_Edit

If you haven't guessed by now the realms talked about in the above tales are realms of the 2020 Fantasy Faire. The ones I have shown today are only a handful of the gorgeous, whimsical and imaginative landscapes of the fairelands. I didn't want to show you everything because you need to see these places for your own! There are also events and shopping to be hand so be on the lookout for some the creations you can call your own from the faire over the next couple of weeks. You don't want to miss this!
