Lesson Learned From Surrealism

1 Uncommon Smile D

I consider myself to be a rather grounded, down-to-earth kind of person. So I almost didn’t click into the gallery for The Surreal Complex over on Seraphim to see what was on offer. Ah, in case you didn’t know about Seraphim, that is my shopping secret weapon. It is how I find out about the majority of sales events going on and gives me a sneak-preview so I can decide whether or not to fight the crowds.

But, being the dedicated shopper that I am, I took a peek. I was expecting something along the lines of nightmare-inspired items; instead, I found more quirky, clever and cute items mixed in with the more avant-garde. The event is divided into three categories: art, dreams and fairy tales. It is a fun shopping venue (although I did have trouble finding the teleporter back to the main level from the dreams gallery) and while it was busy, it wasn’t overly crowded, making it a very pleasant shopping experience.

My favourite items were the poses. I had to have the Butterflies set from UNCERTAIN SMILE, and immediately headed over to Two Moon Gardens to play with it. It was the perfect distraction while I waited the required ten minutes for entry into the Two Moon Gardens Booty Board competition (group membership required).

I guess this just shows that one should never judge a book by its cover or a sales event by its name. I have always believed the first; I am learning the wisdom of the second.
