It was a soft opening, I admit. I had the worst migraine of 2012 (easily) and a lot of people are just so slammed busy they weren’t ready on time (self included I might add.) but at this point I figure we can give the go ahead and tell everyone to come on up to Gothmas by Gaslight!
It’s SO pretty, folks, seriously. So very pretty.
New items and booths are being added daily. We have some left, actually so if you want one please let me know. I’ve encouraged people to rotate what they have available so there’s lots of reasons to come back again and again. There’s both gachas and straight sales available, so everyone is pretty well covered.
You can ice skate on the lake (we have the skating balls already out but we’ll get free skates for everyone out ASAP) and there’s areas in each corner plus a gothmas gingerbread house for you to take pictures in and around. Make sure to come back a lot, because seriously, everyone is busting their ass making new items to put in. The elves are busy, folks.
There’s a flickr group too, right here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/gxg/ , and we encourage both vendors, bloggers and shoppers to post their GXG related photos.
The landmark to get there is right here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dark%20Eternity/250/128/502
So come on up and say hi (i will likely be found putting in more stuff. So. much. stuff.) and keep coming by to see what’s new.
Happy Gothmas, everyone.
I sent out the final merchant package to the group this morning If you didn’t get it, check notices. Or find me. Either way.
Also, if you want to send out review copies for the bloggers you can put them in your booth or send them out to the group. Your call.
Would you like to blog Gothmas by Gaslight? We’d love that.
Before you get all excited though, there’s stuff you should know. From our FAQ:
For actual bloggers, we’ll make OPTIONAL blogger packs available to bloggers who wish to hop on board to blog the event. Here’s what optional means, guys- it’s optional for the merchants to provide them, and it’s optional for the bloggers to blog them. I’m not the blogger police, and I’m definitely not the merchant police, either. I find this all works much more smoothly when everyone has a healthy dose of respect for everyone else, so let’s do that.
In short, I’m not the blogger police. No one is required to put out review copies for bloggers and no bloggers are required to blog everything they get review copies OF. Everyone is required to not act like a jackass(except Uffda, because he IS a jackass.). It’s pretty simple.
We are building the venue for this year’s GxG and so time is running out to get a spot! If you haven’t applied yet, here is the link!
Hope to see you there!
If your store was listed on the website as of 5amSLT 11/20/12, you were sent a merchant pack and a group invite if you needed one. We still have plenty of room, so if you haven’t applied yet, here’s the link to that.
We have one more hunt this year, and it’s a big one. Dare Designs and Damned Good Design are sponsoring a gridwide hunt called Gothmas by Gaslight. Applications are being accepted until midnight SLT on November 30. If you want an application, just shoot me (Axi Kurmin) or Dare Munro an IM and we’ll shoot one over to you.
Ok don’t click that- inworld, those posters give out stuff. You know what I mean. Yeesh.
ho ho, oh fuck it..-AK
