Faerieworlds: The Experience

Outta This World the show went to Eugene, Oregon for a 3-day excursion into the mythical realm that is Faerieworlds. Here are some of the highlights, from costumes to food to entertainment.

Faerieworlds deserves a huge thank you for it’s kindness to Mother Earth. This unique festival focuses on the environment and social organizations that work towards creating a better future for mankind. All of their materials are printed on recycled paper, foodware is compostable, and the food caters to organic and vegetarian foodies (like myself).

Stay tuned for another episode featuring the Art of Faerieworlds, including interviews with legendary fantasy artists Brian Froud, Toby Froud and Amy Brown. And find us on Twitter! @Nedopak

Faerieworlds is hosting another incredible event: FaerieCon Nov 12-14, 2010 in Maryland.

Mythic Journeys (DVD)

Mythic Journeys, a film about the power of myth and the essence of being human, was featured at Faerieworlds this year. This animated documentary won Best Animation at Dragon*Con and uses puppets designed by Brian & Wendy Froud. Find out more on the Mythic Journeys website.

Where else can you go to get your Star Wars, Star Trek, Tolkien, Wheel of Time, Dr. Who, Steam Punk, Harry Potter, Superhero, Comic, Gaming and Pirate fix? (Whew!) Why Dragon*Con, of course.

What’s donned as the largest sci-fi and fantasy convention in the world, or Disneyland on crack as I like to call it, is a four-day adventure into the deepest depths of Nerdvana. There’s almost too much to see, from art to panels galore to celebs and much, much more. The good news is that there are shorter lines than some of the other Cons (ehem, you know I’m talking to you Comic-Con), and you actually have a chance of getting to see what you came for.

However, despite the geek overload, I went (primarily) for one thing: COSTUMES! Here are the multitudes of photos I took from the parade, costume contest and creations seen wandering the hallways.

Stay tuned for Dragon*Con video highlights, plus more photos of The Wheel of Time and True Blood!

PS. I was kidding about Comic-Con (not). We attended that too. In case you missed it, be sure to check out our special Comic-Con episode

Attire aside, mystic bands such as Woodland and Faun mesmerized festival goers through the night, followed up by fire dancing and a haunting aerial number.

Here’s a look at some of the best costumes and enchanting entertainment from this year’s festivities.
