Questionable Fortune


She walks into the foyer of the decrepit theatre, her pulse throbbing in her throat, her heart pounding in her chest. She hears a sound – a low whisper, perhaps? Or just the wind creaking through the dilapidated walls? She freezes, the whisper now resembling a quiet moan. Then as she peers to her right, she sees eyes in the darkness blink once, twice, three times. As an eerie glow begins to emanate from behind an ancient carnival machine, its inhabitant raises a hand and with a gnarled finger beckons her forward. Trembling, she remains in her spot, fearful of her questionable fortune.

What is not questionable is the deal you will get on this skirt from *Just BECAUSE* at the October round of No21. Each pack comes with two versions – a colour-match waistband on one and a brown waistband on the other.

Don’t trust the answers you get from a has-been fortune teller in a tumbledown playhouse; look no further than the credits below.

The Second (Almost) Annual UnEVENTful Challenge


I hadn’t planned on doing a second post today, but it’s turning into a day of seconds.

Earlier, in the SL Blogger Support group chat in world, we got into a spirited discussion about “the old days,” back before shopping events became the way to shop. About the competition to find the latest, best, newest releases and the race to be the first to blog them. About grid-hopping parties, where someone would take the lead and mass TP a group of followers all around the grid. Yes, those good old days…

During the course of the conversation, I mentioned that a while ago (unbelievably to me, over two years ago!) I posted a challenge I called The Uneventful Challenge. In this challenge, you are not allowed to wear/show anything that has been purchased at an event. Before I could blink, I was being asked to revive the challenge. With input from this enthusiastic group, I am tweaking the rules from the original, and I have created a Flickr Group for everyone to add their photos.

And now, on with the rules…
