I finally made it to the Wizarding Faire this morning. I wanted two very specific things at the event, as I’m not a wand using/Harry Potter reading/cape wearer sort, I had planned a really limited amount of time to get in and get out.
Props to the builders, when you land you can touch a picture to get a map that details exactly where each creator’s items are. It’s built as an alley of shops (Harry Potter? I don’t know) and each creator is located with a small group in each one. It took me a minute to figure out how to get out of the landing zone – you have to touch a wall of rocks when then opens into the alley. There are words that say TOUCH HERE – but my camera wasn’t set high enough to see them initially.
When I got about the first area of shops – I got caught in the familiar lag soup. And this is where I also want to send out a HUGE set of props to the builders and even organizers- because I mentioned on plurk that I was having trouble and boom hello folks were there to see what was going on.
Being concerned about people’s shopping experience is amazing and really appreciated.
I got what I had planned to pick up plus a bit more, and the lag I was experiencing abated really quickly. Which was GREAT!
It’s a gorgeous build, even though it didn’t quite completely rezz for me while I was there, you can see a lot of care went into it. I am probably going to go back just to look around some more in a day or two.
Another great shopping pick up is this Boozle dress from Schadenfreude – it’s perfect for more cocktail type fall/Halloween gatherings and the tights are great. Collabor88 has some really great dark, fall/spooky themed items this time around.
I thought this new hair from Ploom was perfect right out of the box – I usually use the blonde huds, but this worked great with my look today.
The most spoiled of all pixel cats, Snake Plisskin, is feeling insecure about all my Chibi cat decorations on the table I think.

The venue is from Harry Potter: Diagon Alley, the wizarding “business district” in London. This is where Harry and friends pick up their supplies for Hogwarts every year, and is the site of the Leaky Cauldron, the pub that fronts on the entrance to the Alley. Down the way a little bit is Knockturn Alley, the place where you go for things pertaining to Dark magic (don’t go there!).
