Pandora's Box is soon to close... Today is the last chance to get your hands on all of the awesome goodies before it closes, and Dark Japan has been awesome to us this month. I've learnt so much and have some wonderful goodies from the boxes talented designers but there's just time for one more post and a little lesson about somewhere in Japan that I feel fits the box perfectly... It's a place called Aokigahara Forest at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. There is a beautiful tribute to this sad place in Second Life that was perfect for allowing a little Pandora's Box monster to be free just a little while...
Known as "the perfect place to die" the Aokigahara Forest in Japan is one of the world's most 'popular' - although the word sounds terrible in this case - places to commit suicide.
Legend has it that ancient families would sacrifice members of the family by leaving them to die in the forest, deaths would have been long, horrible and drawn out due to starvation, creating the stories of hauntings amongst the trees. Yet this does not deter those in despair, annually around 70 corpses are found by the volunteers that clear the woods, and records of just how many wander in but never come out are no longer published so that there is no popularisation of the location.
There is a lot of information about the "Sea of Trees" available, check the wikipedia link to start with and don't miss out exploring Second Life's interesting tribute to this dark location.
Back to the box though, she's wearing some awesome goodies to take on the role of a spirit in the forest... This amazing mask is a Pandora's Box exclusive from Nana, and the amazing wiggly Bento Tail that is decorated with Shuriken from PSYCHO.Byts.
Now because this is a Pandora's Box post... You may want a reminder about Pandora's Box... As a basic reminder, the best place to go to sign up for your box is the Pandora's Box HQ. Now that the box has been opened the cost will be 2500L, which will allow you to join the group and get your box - bear in mind though that you only have until May 30th to do so - and all those wonderful goodies will be yours. Then after the last day in May the group will be emptied and sign up begins for the following month's box - which if you join the group before the release date will be 1500L! You can get more information about this at the Pandora's Box Website!!
