Fantasy Faire 2011, is NOW OPEN, running through until Sunday 10th April.
Now in its third year, Fantasy Fair is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. Ten days of commerce, special events, live music concerts, exclusive items auctions, RFL ribbon hunts and fundraising to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer. Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from top SL Fantasy Creators in stunning sims designed by builders creating some of the most noticeable fantasy spots on the SL destination guide.
Over the course of the event, thousands of Second Life residents and creators will be coming together, to support the American Cancer Society's vision of a world without cancer. Friends Fighting Cancer (FFC) have transformed nine sims of Second Life into a fantasy wonderland: the Fantasy Faire 2011 to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).
This nine sim event is bringing together such fantasy genres as Fairy, Elven, Magic, Mermaid, Goth, Demon, Vamp, Neko, Micro, Steampunk, Sci-Fi and more including fantasy landscaping and appearance such as skin & hair!
FFC's goal in 2011 is to raise $20,000 USD for RFL of SL. The Fantasy Faire 2011 will also offer visitors an opportunity to celebrate the survivors of cancer, remember and honour loved ones lost, and to fight back with the American Cancer Society.
The Designing Worlds show will be coming from the Fantasy Faire LIVE on Monday at 2pm SLT it's going to be a great show that you won't want to miss!
Here is a brief summary of the nine sims. I will be providing a more detailed review of each sim each day of the Faire.
