ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – Autumn Skirts

I’m a sucker for a cause most of the time.  If I’m going to be putting effort into an event it makes me feel good to do it with an intent rather than just profit. Long Skirt - Autumn Gold I know that might seem contradictory considering I run a business hoping to make a bit of a profit but I like to help people.

When some people I know decided to do a fair with the ALS as the beneficiary I got in contact with them to see what it was about.  I was told I didn’t have to do anything new for it, the idea came together rather quickly and there was only a little bit of time so not much time to prep but I really don’t like just taking old store inventory for the main thing at any event.  I add on things, like for the Clockwork Spiral I have some product that was already in the store that I put into vendors to donate but the main things were new.  I try to do that when I can.

For the ALS event I decided to put together a set of skirts.  Three of them, autumn hued or themed to celebrate one of my favorite times of the year.  It really is.  I think I was kinda sorta channeling the whole Edgar Allen Poe thing too.  Nevermore and the ravens.  I adore ravens.  Dark things… so why not right?  It wasn’t intentional.Long Skirt - Raven Red  I was messing with making tree branches and leaves fluttering on the golden one…. then I was looking at it in Photoshop thinking…. well that’d be kinda cool in a deep red.  But instead of leaves, skeletal branches and ravens.  Ooohh.

So off I went playing around with that.

So we have three skirts.  Autumn Gold with the leaves and a really interesting texture…. Raven Red, and Raven Black.  I couldn’t not have one that is sort of black.  The skirt comes in 7 sizes, 2 bonus types in there besides the 5 ‘normal’ ones.

100% donation to ALS during the event and only there, then I’ll decide what to do with them.

I think I put them at 150L each.  You know sometimes I can’t even remember and have to look it up. *laughs*

The event runs from Sept. 26th – Oct. 10th

Hope to see you there.
