Standard

Well i´m finally finished with my World Goth Fair pins well except for a couple of missing pins here and there, which will be added today,as i go thru all the booths and the Official Bands hoodies, it´s all done, so perfect for some window shopping and to organize your gothy goodness shopping cart.

As you all know by now  World Goth Fair 2014 is and event by the good peeps at Cursed Events, as usual the charity involved is The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

I promise updates as soon as possible and more goodies, also remember since this is goth we´re talking about here there are a number of Music events you can come and listen too, and also hang out with a bunch of crazy goth peeps, so let´s all get our goth on, cause black is certainly the only black.

I´ll be back in a bit with more news and events.

For those who know me, they know this time of year my heart get´s a little darker and a whole lot gothier, because today it´s another year and World Goth Fair 2014 starts, i´ve written a lot of times about how much i love this event, and how much i enjoy being a part of it, not just thanks to the amazing folks at Cursed Events, or the Charity involved The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. it was one of the first events i blogged ever, and the group a small sl family for me.

So guys without further delay and talk, i´ll save that for later in a more detailed blog post i bring you part of World Goth Fair, when we celabrate a way of life and most of all community.

See you all soon with more news and events.

As you all probably know by now that The World Goth Fair already started and today i talk about why this is one of my favourite events in SL. It happens every year and  is officially sanctioned by the folks at  World Goth Day  raising funds for the  Sophie Lancaster Foundation. A lot of people don´t know much about Sophie, i´ll confess i didn´t until last year, but those living in the UK might remember Shopie´s story.

Wearing:
Shape: mine
Skin: Jalwa- Jezebel (World Goth Fair)
Eyes: Beautiful Freak – Shopie (World Goth Fair)
Hair: Exile – Hearts Don’t Breakeven
Moth: Bliensen + MaiTai – Goth Moth – Hair Accessory (World Goth Fair)

On August 24th 2007 Shopie and her partner Rob where brutally attacked in  Stubbeylee Park, Bacup, Lancashire, Shopie didn´t survive this brutal attack. And you may ask why where they attacked? Because they where goths.

Because they dressed differently, they looked different, no i´ll take that back they where not attacked by that, they where not attacked by something they did, they were attacked due to hate, pure and simple, they were attacked because and by hate. Something Shopie´s mum is trying to fight, and she´s been doing it so bravely by leaving a huge legacy in Shopie´s name, thru The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

And this is why i picked this blog title, one of the Foundation´s major goals has been to educate people on hate and intolerance to all subcultures, but also work with authorities so that these sort of crimes are penalized as what they are: Hate Crimes. That is done thru constant work and talking, avoiding the silence people are so often pushed in too, by those who commit these sort of crimes.

It´s by talking about these issues that we show victims they are not alone and that we as a society don´t aprove of this sort of behaviour, and will do whatever is possible to call it out when we see it and say this is hateful and not ok, be it in whatever medium it shows it´s ugly face.

So it´s time we talk about people like Sophie, to whom hate had the ultimate consequence, it´s time to break the silence.

You can visit The World Goth Fair until the 31st of May and can window shop for all the charity vendors here on my World Goth Fair Pinboard. There is a lot i could say more, but sadly words fail me so many times, et´s just remember Sophie and all others like her who somehow where victims of hate, and let them be remembered as such a huge influence i a pat to change.

Hi everyone, long time since i did an actual blog post i know, there´s been so much to pin lately, because as usual SL is buzzing with events and activities, something i love, so this blog post comes with a bit of a delay.

You all know how much i love events, and i keep earing constantly of people saying, they are to many events i can´t keep up with them all, well i sometimes think there aren´t enough events, that even tho the amount of mainstream shop do get represented, a lot of cliques and small groups and communities, don´t get the same exposure, and they sure deserve it.

We <3 Roleplay came to fill in a void for the rp community, so has Genre since the start of this year, and even now as World Goth Fair starts, suddenly a bunch of groups that are so far away from your usual mainstream fashion are getting noticed and filling up gaps and showing us new shops, making our SL more diverse and exciting.

All furniture from: Culprit

Available at FaMESHed are the  Zen set all other items available at mainstore 

So today i bring you guys a mix of events, Culprit at this months´s FaMESHed birthday edition, one of my favourite furniture shops at one of my favourite mainstream events, and a skin from Jalwa available only at another event  World Goth Fair a not so mainstream but incredibly popular one

With a little bit of Bare Rose that you will also find is a regular at Genre. And that is all for today, let me now get some rest and a nice massage, i hope you all have a marvelous start of the weekend, see you all tomorrow for more pinning.

Before i forget don´t miss out on a crazy sale at aDORKable since the inworld shop is closing, is incredibly sad to see one of my all time favourite pose shop close doors, but at least items will still be around on the marketplace.

It´s that time of the month i do a tldr post

Standard

Last month was busy and unusual for me, busy because i covered a lot of events, and unusual because i spent most of the month in Goth looks.

After Fantasy Faire I must admit i was totally exhausted, not just from covering the event, but from basically living at the Faire sims for days, but exhausted and excited since i got to enjoy those wonderful builds for hours and hours.

After Fantasy Faire i officially covered several events, Keep calm and keep shopping, The Summer Beauty Festival and The World Goth Fair. By the way the Goth Fair donation has been made all transactions and receipts can be found here. I´m honestly out of words for how much i enjoyed being a part of this event, it has been probably my favourite so far this year, it had a flawless organization and openness, that no words can describe, and certainly not my clumsy english.

Soon coming from Axi and the gang will be also OopsKate, the link directs you to last years entry on the event, and i can´t wait to join in on Rupert´s birthday celebration, during next month, but i will bring you more info on that soon.

This month i blogged a Chic Management event officially for the first time, their two year birthday event CHIC², started yesterday and will be going on until the 24th.

Also blogging officially as a Ego Co. press member, is Mesh Around, I totally amazed with the exposure the hunt received, to be honest i never expected for people to go hunt like this, not that had little faith on the event and organization, but because it´s a new event, that is happening for the first time. And honestly the turn out is becoming legendary and hunters are iming shop owners tanking them for their generosity, i feel honestly grateful to be able to share this experience with everyone involved. I can´t wait now for Fluid to start.

That´s the usual round up of events for the next few days, as usual i´m also bringing you other events i stumble into, and that i usually cover, later on the week i´ll bring also a store opening and more pretty stuff from around the grid. So expect my usual peeks at COLLABOR88, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Room Blue,  and FaMESHed.

Also at the end my own vanity moment, when i was blogged by the lovely Geanna Lanley for her blog shotmesl, you can find her pics of me  here. I now feel extremely vain and proud, and it was wonderful to meet Geanna inworld and to be featured in her blog.
