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.

Another lovely batch of Goth Fair goodies, as you know i´ve been blogging The World Goth Fair that goes from the 15th and lasts all the way to the 31st of May, and it will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation with the full support of the good people of World Goth Day. Also part of the World Goth Day SL celebrations is the ongoing WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st, you can find a list of all hunt participants here.

And today i bring you another batch of cool stores and some more gothy items, let´s start of with Avatar Bizarre that has this beautiful Marie Antoinette gown in black and also one of their now famous adorable wearable Cthulhus this one of mercy as fair exclusive items (the little cthulhu i´ll show later) in this case paired with one of The Little Bat, gatcha collars.

I also bring you today another gatcha price this one from ezura, the cute little lolita dress available in several colors at their gatcha paired with this gorgeous House of Rain necklace and earings set, a new shop that made it´s debut at the Hunt and fair. Now HoR does partial mesh jewelry which i am totally in love with, since i can easily resize it to fit my petite avatar and that you will be seeing around here a lot, on the backdrop of my second picture you can see the amazing photo that is the donation item for the Virtual Alchemy Photography, i´m also featuring another one of the muses dresses here, and i have a feeling you will see more around the blog.

Another thing you will se a lot are lassitude & ennui shoes, and why you may ask? Because i simply adore them, and not only do they rock the goth look, but the shop is also a surprise addition to the fair. Another shop in the fair but hard to blog about but very well worth to mention,  hard to blog because it sells sculpted creators packs, and worth to mention because of it´s quality, is Girl Not Included.

Also included in this post are a few more goodies from The Summer Beauty Festival, that is still running and will run until the  25th, so still time to shop for some makeup.

World Goth Fair part 1

Standard

Yes   The World Goth Fair is about to start, well we still have one more day to wait, it actually starts on the 15th and last all the way to the 31st of May, and it will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation with the full support of the good people of World Goth Day.

And i spent all weekend photographing previews of fair items, the theme of this year is Canivale and it can be easily seen thru the fair build that ranges from several booths that spread across two sims, Dark Eternity and Cursed (one a Mature and the other an Adult sim, linked here are the gatcha tents slurls), over the next two weeks i will try to bring you the old, the new and maybe something blue in between, those who know me, know goth is way far from my casual style, but this is sl and we all need to climb outside our comfort and usual zones, i do enjoy dressing up and ely is totally going goth for the rest of the month, this time for a good cause.

There will be no fixed teleport points during the fair and lm´s to every store booth will be accessible on the website with a direct SLurl there, there also a lot of gatchas, and i do love gatchas, those will be found either at the shop booth, and also at the two gatchas tents around the fair.

Today for you i bring you a couple of shops, first The Little Bat, The embrace yourself dress i´m wearing on the first pics will go 100%  to charity, There are also 3 variations of the Molly skin, that i will be wearing a lot over the next week made exclusively for the fair, and a few more items like dresses, and the pair of eyes you see me wearing also, their gatcha items are some lovely collars, you will see me wearing latter over the week. I had never heard of The Little Bat to be honest, but was amazingly surprised at the effort not only put into the fair but t the quality of the offers. Another shop i had never heard about is DemotiK and here on the 3rd pic you will see me wearing one of their charity items in my petite form, and they also have a lot more items exclusively for the Fair, one of them the shoes i am also wearing on first picture. Also added to the last picture is a freebie gift found at the Gothic Toys booth this adorable spooky shack in a jar.

Another shop i love is Pin me Down, a regular Zombie Popcorn brand, and that I have been blogging for sometime, I love their edgy and certainly different makeups, Pin me down is offering a whole new set of gorgeous makeup called Doomsday, you will see later, and oh god it´s so beautiful and it comes in so many colours, they also have some uber cute Lip markings, as seen on first pic, and a bunch of eyeliners on their gatcha machine, you will certainly see me wearing those a lot.

Last but not least the muses, the muses offers a wide selection of mesh mixed in with system layers, that will fit any avatar out the box, like the dress i´m wearing here on the second picture, and gives us an amazing selection in classic and classy goth wear,   or sexy depending on your desires, like you will see on my next posts about the fair.

To the mix i have been adding some makeups from The Summer Beauty Festival, that is still running and will run until the  25th, so still more than 10 days to shop there.

Remember that still going is also the The WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st, you can find a list of all hunt participants here and is also a part of World Goth Day SL Celebrations.

My usual tldr post of the month.

Standard

As Usual i do a round up of upcoming events I applied for as a blogger, today we see the end of Fantasy Faire and pose Faire , but more events are coming soon, and these are:

- 1st- 25th of May The Summer Beauty Festival, mostly dedicated to Cosmetics, let´s see if i have something to blog about it later.

- 14-28 of May stars of  Keep Calm and Keep Shopping!  this one is not a charity event but only to promote wonderful SL creators.

- 15-31 of May starts of  World Goth Fair and the WGD Nightstalker Hunt (starting on the 1st of May) associated with it. These two events are separate but officially sanctioned by the folks at World Goth Day, and will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. And is being organized by people I know personally, am close to and have absolute confidence in.

This is the round-up of the current events I have planned to cover over the next few months, I´ll be sure to update this list as I go along, and keep covering a lot more events be them monthly or weekly. And remember on the 7th Men´s Department also starts, while the 8th brings us our usual monthly edition of COLLABOR88. Also starting on the 1st is FaMESHed a new monthly and apparently awesome event, and Culture Shock 2012 for the 4th to the 26th of May and finally from the 5th to the 4th of June is time for the Ashraya Project.

Another thing that was mentioned a lot this week was the subject of review copies, tbh i don´t mark them myself, i´d rather not make a mistake and mark something wrong, and i also don´t personally like seeing them marked, like prices unless it´s a promotion or something like that. I´m not even sure the review policies apply to SL blogging or myself since i am not a US resident, so i will keep that policy, one thing i do is thank all the awesome creators who do share them, and this month due to at least two big Fairs i received quite a few, from my awesome assigned stores from Fantasy Faire, and from all the amazing and generous creators at Pose Fair, and also to the usual shops that send regular review items. A big thank you from you all who make the blog have more to talk about, and me to take pictures at.

A round-up of upcoming events.

Standard

It comes that time of month when I review all events and current blogging plans.

-14-22 of April: Bay City Fashion Week, a new event with a vintage feel featuring 20 top designers presenting styles of the 1940s through the mid 1960s, that I will try to follow as close as possible.

- Starting on the 15th ia the much expected Pose Fair, check their Flickr group for previews on what creators are making and what bloggers are planning, but in the meanwhile, it´s open today at 8 am  for bloggers and I will probably have some pics to show you guys. Hopefully with Sha´s help. (ETA: The bloggers preview day and hour have changed to Friday the 13th at 12pm, sadly i won´t be able to blog any of it on the 13 due to time zones, hopefully I will have something to show of on the 14th and one post for the opening on the 15th, since I won´t be online much on 15th due to rl commitments. I do promise to follow-up on it as best as possible during the week)

- 21-29 of April: Fantasy Faire, a Relay for Life event in support of the American Cancer society, so far I have not had one single doubt in participating in this event since all the people in it seem extremely competent, and honourable, and I have no reason to question their commitment to the event and RLF.

- 14-28 of May stars of  Keep Calm and Keep Shopping!  this one is not a charity event but only to promote wonderful SL creators.

- 15-31 of May starts of  World Goth Fair and the WGD Nightstalker Hunt (starting on the 1st of May) associated with it. These two events are separate but officially sanctioned by the folks at World Goth Day, and will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. And is being organized by people I know personally, am close to and have absolute confidence in.
