Opening the door you step into a magical menagerie brimming with arcane goods and enchanted adornments! You don’t need to worry so much about watering the plants as not being eaten or poisoned by them and unusual creatures blink at you from perches and platforms all around. You could be forgiven for thinking you were in Diagon alley but you’ve just entered the magical world of HEXtraordinary!
Corwin Lacourte was once a creator of manly manes and marvelous mustaches but in the Summer of 2015 he created his first magical masterpiece for the Wizarding Faire and HEXtraordinary was born! Since then he’s been a well known feature at events all over the grid. From the Arcade and Gacha Garden to Fifty Linden Fridays his unique creations have frolicked and flapped their way into peoples hearts.
Between the petulant pygmy goat trying to eat my coat and the Phoenix that is considering me with ancient eyes, you might wonder what Corwin’s favorite creature is! Well, it’s between the Meowls and the Pegasus Ponies, which he had so much fun creating. As you stand in the store, sandwiched in a quaint street and teetering upwards through narrow stairs to a plethora of more mystical masterpieces, you might think Corwin is a magician himself!
You would be right! Corwin is an admin and builder at Mischief Managed, the biggest and best known Harry Potter roleplay sim on the grid! They are currently working on their second adjoining sim, and Marina Tiepolo has created a stunning village there that will open at the end of the summer. Though he mostly works behind the scenes, you might be lucky enough to catch Corwin roleplaying as the dastardly Professor Ipswich in those hallowed halls, but if roleplay isn’t your thing you can still get a chance to see the sim on Muggle Mondays, when anyone can come to take pictures and get a tour of the Castle!
