We have begun a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for the third Faerie Escape (http://www.indiegogo.com/faerieescape?a=261464#). While in the past we have always had to operate on a shoe-string budget, this year we would like to bring in more guests and create a more fully immersive event. Money from the crowdfunding go toward these causes and help immensely.

We managed to create an exceptional event at the first Faerie Escape with very little money, but it showed. We certainly did our best to make up for our lack of coin with an abundance of energy, and the woman who organized our Grand Ball did a fabulous job without money ... but there is so much more we can do.

Another fun aspect of this campaign is the cool gifts we have for participants. Want a feast at the Escape with IK, King of the Trolls? Your own custom-made faerie costume, developed by our own master crafters? Or, best of all, giant original drawings done by legendary artist Charles Vess at our first Faerie Escape. Check out the videos of him drawing while Ari Berk spins great tales, and get a full DVD of the session to go with the art.

I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. The $3000 sum would allow us to bring in some really good guests, but even if we do not reach it, we will get some good people. In addition, if we get more than the goal, we have some excellent plans on additional events at the Escape. Spread the word!

Fun! Do you have a link to the event site, as well? I don't know that I'll be traveling soon, but I do know folk who'd love to check it out.

Was the Indiegogo video working when you went to the site?

Yes--it's a good video. It should generate attention, as long as it gets around.
