As some of you know, I ditched the really 'real' world for a nice weekend in Otherworld. Packed up our bags, flew off in the magic Subaru (better mileage than my jeep) and headed off for Mt. Pisgah near Eugene Oregon for an event that has become a yearly migration of the tribes.

Faerieworlds! How does one describe Faerieworlds to the uninitiated... well first I would begin by asking you to look here for a general overview of what it is all about.

Many have been to a Ren Faire, now imagine that, minus jousts, minus king and courtiers, minus renaissance apparel.. and add Faeries, Elves, Gnomes, Satyrs, Nymphs, Mermaids, Unicorns and assorted other Otherworld creatures.

Imagine a three day long, open air concert with many different bands playing on two stages. Imagine a 10 acre field filled with happy, laughing, dancing creatures. Imagine 110 degrees Fahrenheit!!! Imagine art, crafts, tarot readings, jugglers, hoop dancers, puppets... every thing a grown up who never did, would love to indulge in. Imagine the smell of a good sticky skunk bud wafting on the breeze.... oh wait.. I did not imagine any of this.. I was there.

Yep, now I think you have it. Peter Pan envy, I has it!

It's a whole new world, once you step into the Faerie realm. Even if it's set up on a worldly bit of property, once you cross the gates, it ceases to be Earth as we know it.

It's hard to imagine a gathering of over 2k people in which there are no fights. No lawlessness.. no one ridiculing others. But they have managed to create just such an atmosphere.

Brian, Wendy and Toby Froud are the sponsors and special guests of Faerieworlds events. There, you can meet other fae artists and artisans.

Not only are their Faeries and Otherworldly citters.. there are Pirates! The Talk Like a Pirate guys are there. The Pirate group from the PDX area are the MC's and do assorted other jobs.

Ok now I'm just gonna shut the fuck up and let you look at all the pictures my friends and I took.
