This post has nothing to do with Valentines day actually, but I made you look, right? Anyhow.. the Back in Black fair just started yesterday and I must say that the items along with the message behind the event made me happy. As I’ve stated mental health is a subject that hits home for me and I love that there are awareness events like this in Second Life.
So what am I wearing? Well I am wearing the fiercest mother effing POWER Suit from Ladies Who Lunch. It is Mesh and you have to maneuver your shape around a bit but like all of the clothing from Faint Paulse this is a piece of rare and genuine art. I paired it with the Glam Affair skin that is at the Dressing Room right now, Linn in Valentine complimented this well along with a tattoo from Little Pricks and hair from Al Vulo.
Caged. Trapped. Alone. That is how I could describe how my depression makes me feel at times. I know though that I am not alone in these feelings and that there are other people like me who can say that they are going through the same feelings and emotions. Sometimes though it’s hard to see past that haze.
Back to Black is an Awareness event (not Charity) put on and paid for by Chic Management. You can read more about the event here. Personally I think it’s nice that an Awareness event like this exists. Last time when they did the Black and Blue Fair a few summers ago.. I was overwhelmed with knowing that there were people nearly in my same shoes going through what I was.. and I was so much less alone.
I am wearing preview items from the fair. The wonderfully dramatic dress is from Peqe. The hair is from Mina. The beautiful mesh boots are from Lassitude and Ennui. The pose with cage is from Miamai. If it’s possible the cage is even more stunning in world. The event opens on February 11th and closes on February 29th at 4slt.
