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. 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. 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.

A Clockwork Spiral… all things steampunk to benefit the National Kidney Foundation opened up tonight. I have been enjoying working within different genres and themes for ages of course however I do have a soft spot for steampunk, Victorian, and darker things in general. The event runs through and into October 1st so there’s a wee bit of time to be able to explore, shop or enjoy yourself. Everything in my booth there is at a 50% donation to the National Kidney Foundation. There’s a few things in there, some stuff I’ve had like the top hat with the gears and things… but I also have a new outfit and boots to offer up.
The Emmaline outfit is so very ladylike. With a high necked ruffled blouse, long sleeves running downwards with layers of ruffles. An under-bust corset tightens it up across the waist. It’s such an awesome look. I love it. The skirt and top are separates so you can wear them with other things if you want or together.
Rich textures compliment and the top has four different color options for the blouse. Blue, green, brown, and black. Use the HUD to choose your color and it is scripted so you can delete the scripts within the top so you’re not adding to any kind of lag. Just make sure you make a copy first…. have a scripted back up in your inventory. Brand new and available at the event.
The other new one is the boots like I mentioned.
These are fairly awesome I think. Unrigged mesh, I’ve been getting some great feedback actually from both men and women who have chosen to wear them. Since they were unrigged some adventurous types have tried all sorts of looks for it. I’ve been really impressed actually loving it whenever I find them.
They are entitled… “Majesty” and they certainly live up to their name in my opinion. Gorgeous look and rich in two variations. Brown and a version in Black. They are a favorite of mine already.
A Clockwork spiral runs as I said through October 1st and has an impressive line up of merchants to try to get you to spend your lindens.
