It´s tragic

Standard

A lot happens today, and you guys know i like doing a blog post every now and then, specially when there is a new event in town, Which is the case of Oneword that should be now open.

 

So every edition of this event is themed by one word, the first edition is Tragedy, and i fell in love with this new MINA hair for it.

But Oneword is not the only event starting today, FaMESHed is back with a new edition like clockwork every month, and it´s where i bought this lovely structured dress from Mutresse, with plenty of colour options, and which i tinted slightly darker for a more noir feel NS Qa pwerfwct fro the new released shoes from Hucci.

Also since it´s Carnaval time and Madi Grass and even tho i don´t personally do hunts in SL but i was over at Papermoon the last shop on the list of 104 that take part in this Spring edition of The Twisted Hunt, one of the eldest and best know hunts in SL, and i wanted a picture themed for the holiday and for that used Sohma´s pretty setup with her hunt gift.

Have fun today guys, plenty to do on the grid for those who celebrate the world wide holidays like me and get to enjoy some extra free time or a long weekend.

See you all soon with more news and events.

Silence?

Standard

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.

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.

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
