Last night I finished putting together and taking pics for this blog entry for the Unhinged gatcha event which will run until December 15th. For those who may not know, the event is a benefit for an amazing Second Life creator, Eku Zhong. I mentioned in my last post a bit about what the proceeds are meant for, but to reiterate straight from the Unhinged blog:
“Her struggles started with MS. Then they found thyroid cancer, and through poor treatment it turned into bone cancer. Over the last seven years, literally countless surgeries, radiation therapies, bone replacements and marrow transplants later, the stress of repeated surgeries has left her skull fragile and yet more surgery is needed.
The area where her zygotic arch meets the temporal bone is severely compromised.
Literally there is a risk that her zygotic arch could lift off the temporal arch and push the temporal bone into her brain. Actions as simple as chewing hard food or yawning the wrong way could cause this.
There is hope. Another surgery could correct this issue, but it requires the purchase of a prosthesis to replace the damaged bone. This is where myself and a group of people who love her dearly come in, and you as well should you choose to help out.”
Proceeds from the gatchas will be going towards the costs of Eku’s operation.
Creators have banded together to bring this event to fruition, and I hope you all take time to stop by and show support. Little things add up, and the more people who blog this event, stop by to play the gatchas, or make direct donations, the closer Eku is to getting this prosthesis.
So, now…on to the look!
I really wanted to blog this cute red top by Geometry. It has a playful design, combined with a bit of…darkness. I also wanted to show off these boots by Lassitude & Ennui which features embroidered skulls on the sides. They added a fun bit of macabre (I know, sounds like an oxymoron, but I like skulls).
Another item that can be found at Unhinged, is this Black Cranium Ring by Sakide. It added the extra bit I needed to complete the look. The cuff was something I already had from Erratic, and as for newness…I love, love, love these mesh ears that came out recently from Mandala. They are super easy to tint with the HUD, and you can change the colors on the earring metal and gemstones. The Demi hair from Truth was also a new purchase. I haven’t bought some Truth hair for awhile, and this style seemed perfect!
