The event that is geared to all things goth will soon be coming to a close in SL... For the last month, the SL Goth scene has had a major poke in the fashion department, a HUGE event took over the scene and spread a little gothic love to people who never even experienced the sub-culture before. I'm talking about World Goth Fair - a month long event of fashion specials, music and partying...
Originally this event was a charity one, raising funds for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, but sadly - and at the fault of Linden Labs - this one time mega fundraiser for a great charity that raises awareness of people being harmed because they dress or look differently, has had to remove the charity aspect. LL have made it harder to be a charity organisation in SL, it's harder to set up charitable donation accounts apparently, which to be honest even though it protects people from fraud is still a little appauling. People want to give, people want to support these things, apparently LL thinks we need to jump through a million different hoops to do so!
Still you can take a look for yourself at the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, and when you're done, you can take a look at a few of the things that I grabbed from World Goth Fair - amongst other places - and then head into the event to shop for yourself. It closes June 1st, so don't wait too long though hehe...
The majority of this World Goth Fair outfit comes from the store that is SongBird. It consists of two seperate parts that I have combined to make this look ROCK! The Spiderweb Body Suit is available in black, as well as white I THINK but don't quote me on that, and I wore it with the Eva Outfit that is made up of the frilled jacket and longish - by Rudh standards anyway - skirt. A simple pair of pumps on my feet, that LOULOU&CO Druuna Necklace which is subtle on this over the top outfit and a short wig from Magika gave this look a subtle elegance whilst maintaining a darker and more gothic look...
To add just a little flair, and a nod towards rememberance, I adorned my hair with this gorgeous "I Follow Rivers" Hair Accessory from Glam Affair - yes they do make more than awesome skins! - and I love the way that the red just jumps out at you...
There is just one thing that I need to share, I'm sure you don't really need to be told too much what that is, but the stars that surround me are a Collabor88 release from Kalopsia. These were perfect for the photo, they give the photo an ambience and they really do shine for Sophie Lancaster!
